Slaves, Perfect Slaves

I have noted in previous posts and comments that while Dafydd and Lucille’s gang operated out of Gwynedd County Council, the constituency of Caernarfon – the town which housed the offices of Gwynedd County Council, including the offices of Lucille, her henchmen and the crooked Gwynedd County Council lawyer Ron Evans – was one of the safest Parliamentary seats in the UK. From 1974, Dafydd Wigley was elected for Plaid again and again with huge majorities, which actually increased as the trafficking gang expanded. This, in the face of a wrecked local economy, where the only well-paid secure employment available was with the North Wales Police; Gwynedd County Council in some capacity; the NHS; UCNW (Bangor University); the Normal College Bangor; or the local FE institutions. All of these institutions were fully on board with Dafydd’s gang. Everybody else was in casual, very low paid work, frequently on one of the many laughable Gov’t ‘job creation’ schemes. Failing that, one could work in the children’s homes, care homes or charidees which were all part of Dafydd’s empire. Geddit???

I used to know someone who was a Labour Party activist in Gwynedd but who gave up with that particular past-time after becoming completely disillusioned with the fuckwittery and corruption of the local Labour Party, particularly in the form of one Betty Williams. This person was deeply involved with Gwynedd politics in the 1980s and they told me that Labour supporters at one of the counts (I think it must have been at the 1983 General Election) had to get the hell out of the hall because ‘Wigley’s lot’ were intent on physical violence and damage to Labour activists was feared. When I was told this some years ago, my response was ‘surely not?’ I was very firmly reassured ‘yes, they were nasty, intimidating and notorious’. So I responded with ‘Wigley couldn’t have known what they were doing’, only to be told that Wigley could not have missed what they were doing…

Rather like the paedophile gang that operated under Lord Wigley’s nose of which he knew nuzzing (see post ‘It Wasn’t On Our Radar’), despite the Chief Executive of Gwynedd County Council Ioan Bowen Rees – Lucille Hughes was his Director of Social Services – being one of Wigley’s advisers. Ioan had previously been the County Secretary for Dyfed County Council, where there had been a paedophile gang in operation with links to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales. See post ‘I Know Nuzzing…’ Ioan had also served as an adviser to Gwynfor Evans, the first Plaid MP to be elected, who was the MP for Carmarthen, 1966-70. When Dyfed County Council was formed in 1974, Carmarthen was the main administrative centre for that Council. Gwynfor Evans is really rated by many people, because of his pacifist beliefs and his threat to starve himself to death unless a fourth Welsh language TV channel was launched. Gwynfor knew about the paedophile gang and although he did threaten to fast to his death, the real muscle behind the creation of S4C was a contingent of campaigners who discreetly reminded Thatch of what her Gov’t was concealing in terms of Dafydd, Peter Morrison etc. See previous posts.

I know many people who support Plaid who are nothing to do with Dr Dafydd Alun Jones and his gang, but many members of Dafydd’s gang were actively involved with Plaid, including of course Dafydd himself. I probably should not have been so sceptical when I was told about ‘Wigley’s lot’ by that Labour activist; after all, my own experience for years as an Empowered Service User was to be constantly told that ‘doctors, nurses and social workers would never behave as you allege’. They did. They weren’t supposed to, but they were running a trafficking gang and they were a bunch of monsters. Presumably it was they and their associates who were some of ‘Wigley’s lot’ who put the fear of God into the Labour activists on election nights in the 1980s.

After noticing how safe Dafydd Wigley’s job was, I took a quick look at some other constituencies in Wales which housed the local HQs of the networked trafficking gangs. They too were very safe seats. The constituencies in nearby areas, with electorates which were deeply affected by the trafficking gangs but not 100% dependent upon their activities, were in contrast often highly marginal seats and the centre of a bun fight at every election, with all candidates scrabbling for votes so no-one dared upset any potential voter, including voters who were colluding with serious crime…

No wonder Dafydd did what he bloody well wanted.

 

In 1982, Merfyn Jones published his book ‘The North Wales Quarrymen, 1874-1922’. During the period of time with which that book is concerned, the Liberal Party politically dominated north west Wales; David Lloyd George was of course the MP for Caernarvon Boroughs, 1890-1945.

Welsh Wizard? Or Randy Old Goat?

 

However, Merfyn argues that the Liberals were economically impotent in comparison to the wealthy Tory landlords of what is now Gwynedd and the Liberals’ strategy was therefore to seize the political levers of power through the ballot box and thus undermine the authority of the landlord class. In order to win the battle, ‘an anti-Tory alliance of professional men, Ministers of religion, tenant farmers and workers’ was needed and indeed was constructed. The alliance was not automatic; it needed to be fought for and enforced. Merfyn maintains that the prime example of this process was in the case of the Penrhyn quarrymen of Bethesda.

When detailing the history of the formation of the quarrymen’s trade union in North Wales, Merfyn described in considerable detail the iron grip that Lord Penrhyn, the owner of Penrhyn Quarry at Bethesda, exerted over his quarrymen, including their political activities:

‘By the last quarter of the nineteenth century the slate quarrying areas were a bastion both of the Welsh language and also of a Welsh culture dominated by nonconformity and Liberalism. But until 1874 the Penrhyn quarrymen were also firmly controlled politically by Penrhyn Castle; those who admitted their radicalism could expect very short shrift. In 1865 the Cymdeithas Undebol Chwarelwyr Cymru had been meekly dissolved when Penrhyn had declared that he would not tolerate any attempt “to form a species of Trade Union among the quarrymen”, and that any such attempt would force him to close the quarry, and he “would only reopen it and his cottages to those men who declare themselves averse to any such scheme”.

The effectiveness of Penrhyn’s control over the men was again demonstrated in the 1868 general election…the hold of the Penrhyn family over the Caernarfonshire parliamentary seat was challenged and broken by a Liberal, Thomas Love Jones-Parry. He won the seat with 1,963 votes against the 1,815 votes of Lord Penrhyn’s son, George Sholto Douglas Pennant. In Bangor and Bethesda, however, areas under direct Penrhyn influence, Pennant had a majority. In Bethesda the number of Liberal votes was particularly small, 47 out of 359, and this despite the enthusiastic pro-Jones-Parry meetings held in the town before the election.

Those brave enough to be public Liberals in Penrhyn’s domain were soon made to pay the price…Penrhyn sacked and intimidated many prominent Liberals. In 1870 he purged his quarries of agitators, dismissing “over 80 quarrymen, most of them among the best men in the quarry in character and work…without any reason being given”.

Condemned by the Welsh press, this action was accepted by the Penrhyn quarrymen, who held an apparently well-attended meeting in June 1870 to “protest against the slur cast upon the respected stewards and generous and kind proprietor”. They resented especially the words of a local radical columnist who had castigated them as “white slaves”. On the contrary, the men protested, the sackings had been perfectly justified by the downward turn in the slate trade and even one of the dismissed men maintained that this was so and that he was no radical and had helped with the plans for a union (in 1865) against his own will. Such was Penrhyn’s power.

In 1874 Pennant comfortably regained his seat…the fear of victimisation and a genuine sense of obligation toward their master demanded a vote, not necessarily for Toryism, but for the pennant family…Even prominent nonconformist figures…and a host of deacons sat on Penrhyn’s platform and spoke on his behalf.

The Liberal Welsh press were furious and lashed out at the subservience of the quarrymen. The perceptive ‘Herald Cymraeg’ columnist on Bethesda affairs, wrote: Does Wales know I wonder, that the workers of Chwarel y Cae are slaves, perfect slaves? Ever since the election of 1868 they slip further every year into the hold of servility, until most of them have by now lost the last grain of independence…they will have to be squeezed almost to death before they will shout.’

 

A few observations:

Numerous female staff at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh admitted that they hated Dafydd and his behaviour around women – including them – was gross, but ‘you can tell him that if you want, I’m not going to’.

When I asked Jeff Crowther, the nursing officer/manager at Ysbyty Gwynedd, why none of them would stand up to Dafydd, he replied ‘because we’ve got jobs to keep and mortgages to pay’ and walked off.

Ella Fisk, the Angel who ran the day centre at the Hergest Unit, told me that she felt uncomfortable around Dafydd, that she would never wish to be alone with him, that he was creepy and that she had ‘heard rumours’, but that ‘isn’t evidence’. According to Ella, I didn’t have ‘evidence’ either, because Dafydd ‘had never touched me’. No Ella, because I stopped him!!! Having stopped him in the way that so many other patients did not feel able to, I was then told that I had no evidence.

The ‘Independent Advocacy Association’ which represented psych patients in north Wales told their staff not to support patients or relatives making serious complaints against the mental health services because the NHS funded the Independent Advocacy Association. Some of the complaints concerned deaths.

The Chairman of the IAA was Les Cluclus, a Hergest patient who doubled up as the Service Users’ rep. Cluclus was not democratically elected to any position; he was appointed, but by whom I never discovered. He was dependent upon the Hergest Unit for his care and his benefits. He told all of us that he ‘didn’t handle complaints about staff’. Cluclus attended a Service Users conference and told the assembled company that his job was to ‘do what the NHS wants’. One of the more competent advocates – who was new to north Wales – challenged him. The next week she was dismissed from her role at the IAA.

By 2002, the IAA had been commissioned by the North Wales Police to fulfil the role of the ‘responsible adult’ when vulnerable people were arrested and questioned. So when the Hergest Unit had the patients arrested, the ‘responsible adult’ with the remit to defend the accused’s interests was a member of the IAA. No-one was informed when this bunch of clowns were given that remit. I only found out about it when the Hergest Unit had me arrested and the biggest twat from the IAA that there was walked into the interview room, telling me that he was the ‘responsible adult’. I told him that I was a responsible adult myself and he could piss off. The policeman told me that the idiot from the IAA ‘has to be present’. I explained the law to the policeman who either didn’t know it or thought that I didn’t and I once more told the twat from the IAA to leave. At which point he did.

A secretary of Keith Thomson, the Chief Exec of the North West Wales NHS Trust, stated that he ‘ruled by fear’ and that she hated him but would ‘I would never dare say anything’. An Ysbyty Gwynedd receptionist stated that Martin Jones, Keith’s successor, was ‘alright if you reported something in another dept but you’d be sacked if you reported something in your own dept’. A highly effective method of encouraging ratting but not genuine whistleblowing Martin!

At an event at Bangor University in 2005 or thereabouts, I got chatting to a young woman who asked me if I knew if there were any jobs suitable for Welsh language graduates going in the admin depts at Bangor University. It transpired that she had been working for Gwynedd County Council, but according to her, the ‘bullying there is awful’ and if you’re not part of ‘Dafydd Iwan’s lot’ you’ve had it. She had spent the last few weeks off sick with ‘stress’ and was desperate to find another job. I subsequently met two other people – but young men – in exactly the same position, who were trying to escape the yoke of Gwynedd County Council by becoming teachers of Welsh for adults.

Sir Ronald Waterhouse stated that John Allen ‘only’ sexually abused the children in his care and that there was only evidence of him ‘occasionally’ using violence. Ronnie stated that John Allen was a kind and generous man to the boys, as evidenced by Allen giving some of them thousands of pounds and expensive gifts, such as motorbikes. When Ronnie was told that the other kids called the boys receiving such largesse ‘Allen’s bum boys’, Ronnie remarked that young people often use such language about each other, it means nothing.

  • Bryn Alyn | PRESS GANG

 

Ronnie accepted the explanation of social worker Mari Roberts that she was ‘just being playful’ when she tried to suffocate one boy.

After the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal finally broke, one unidentified social worker was interviewed and remarked that she was desperate to get away from the area, but ‘who ever would employ me? I’ve worked for Clwyd.’

I could continue…

Slaves, Perfect Slaves.

It was by such a process that in 1983, a university lecturer at UCNW was told by an undergrad that her boyfriend was receiving murder threats, only for her to be completely ignored. I wasn’t the only undergrad who told Adrian Bell that some horrific things were happening to me either…

‘We didn’t know.’

‘Brain tumour? Well all the referrals from north Wales go to The Walton Centre. Now don’t you worry my dear, we’ll look after you!’ ‘Ooh. Er, I think I know who this patient is.’ ‘No effective treatment available for this I’m afraid! Just exercising our Clinical Judgement! Bechod…’

We’re the paedophiles’ friends and you can’t get us.

My how things haven’t changed.

Slaves, Perfect Slaves. Or in some cases ‘spineless fucking idiots’.

Yma O Hyd!

Dafydd Iwan

 

After Alison Taylor blew the whistle on the abuse of children in care in north Wales, she never worked as a social worker again.

 

Now let us look at a few of those safe seats in detail to illustrate my point.

 

Caernarfon.

From 1950 to Feb 1974, Caernarfon was led by the Labour MP, Goronwy Roberts, later Lord Goronwy-Roberts.

Roberts was from Bethesda, where his father was a deacon of the Presbyterian Church of Wales. He was educated at Ogwen Grammar School, Bethesda and UCNW (Bangor University). Later he attended London University. While at UCNW, Roberts, together with Harri Gwynn, was one of the founders of Mudiad Gwerin, a nationalist left-wing pressure group.

Roberts served in the British Army, 1940-41 and in the TA until 1944. From 1941 until 1944 he worked as Youth Education Officer for Caernarfonshire and in 1944 was appointed lecturer in youth leadership at what is now Swansea University. So Goronwy Roberts was an early social worker.

Goronwy Roberts was elected Labour MP for Caernarvonshire in 1945, when he defeated the sitting Liberal MP Goronwy Owen, who had held the seat since 1923. Following boundary changes, he was elected to represent Caernarfon at the 1950 General Election, defeating the Liberal candidate by over 10,000 votes. He continued to represent the constituency until February 1974, when he lost his seat to Plaid’s Dafydd Wigley. Plaid have held the seat ever since.

During the 1950s, Roberts was, together with Cledwyn Hughes and others, a stalwart of the Parliament for Wales campaign. Lord Cledwyn was the MP for Anglesey, 1951-79 and a big mate of Glenys Kinnock’s parents. He was Secretary of State for Wales, 1966-68, where his Minister was the child molester George Thomas. Cledwyn Hughes was mates with all the Labour Party big wigs, particularly Jim Callaghan and Woy Jenkins and he provided a substantial boost to the Windbag’s political career. Lord Cledwyn colluded with organised abuse for decades, he was concealing it in the days of Gwynne the lobotomist before Dafydd entered the arena. See post ‘The Cradle Of Filth’.

In 1951, Plaid Cymru announced that they would not oppose Goronwy Roberts at the General Election due to his support for the Parliament for Wales campaign . Eventually, Goronwy Roberts presented the final petition to Parliament, bearing more than 250,000 signatures, in May 1956.

Goronwy was a Member of the Commons Panel of Chairmen, 1963-64 and served in Harold Wilson’s Gov’t. Goronwy was Minister of State at the Welsh Office, 1964–66, under the first Secretary of State for Wales, Jim Griffiths. The rot was built into the Welsh Office from its inception and Jim Griffiths set the standard, concealing abuse, neglect and corruption, although when he was Secretary of State the Welsh Office did not have responsibility for Health and Social Services. That followed very soon, when the child molester George Thomas became Secretary of State in 1968. Griffiths was President of the powerful South Wales Miners’ Federation – the Fed – and was the Labour MP for the safe seat of Llanelli, 1936-70. See post ‘The Cradle Of Filth’ for more background on Griffiths.

Goronwy Roberts was then Minister of State, Education and Science, 1966–67, Minister of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, 1967-69, Minister of State for Trade, 1969-70. When Labour lost power in 1970, Roberts became an Opposition Spokesman on Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs.

On his defeat at the Feb 1974 General Election, Roberts was created a life peer. He returned to Government as junior Minister in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, 1974-75 and then as Minister of State in the FCO, 1975-79. Roberts was Deputy Leader of the Lords, 1975-79.

Roberts was a Member of the Court of Governors at what became Aberystwyth University and of the National Museum of Wales and was a member of the Fabian Society. He was appointed FRSA in 1968 and an Honorary Freeman of the Royal Borough of Caernarfon in 1972.

Goronwy Roberts, like Jim Griffiths, knew about the molesting of George Thomas and about the organised abuse in Wales upon which Dafydd later built and expanded. Roberts knew what was going on out at the North Wales Hospital when Gwynne was lobotomising people who complained of being abused. He was still the MP for Caernarfon when Dafydd began to build his empire and he was in the Lords when Dafydd and John Allen’s business began to boom in the 1970s. Goronwy didn’t die until 1981 and he remained silent throughout and about it all, including Harold Wilson’s strategy of building his career as PM on concealing crime and corruption in high and low places. Goronwy was in the Lords when Mary Wynch was unlawfully arrested, imprisoned in Risley and then in Denbigh by Dafydd. He will have known everyone involved in Mary’s case; he’ll have known the ring of crooked lawyers in the Caernarfon area of whom Mary complained who were in league with Dafydd and he will have known that the trafficking gang controlled UCNW, Bangor Normal College and that Aberystwyth University was a production line for crooked lawyers.

Goronwy was in office when the plans to flood Cwm Tryweryn were drawn up and he was a Welsh Office Minister when the Cwm was flooded. This was an event which caused massive resentment in Wales, particularly in the north and the huge protest from local people – including those who were kicked out of their houses and relocated because their whole village was going underwater in order for Liverpool to have a supply of drinking water – was simply ignored by the Labour Party. There are many who argue that the flooding of Tryweryn was the event which propelled the first Plaid MPs into office. It really, really pissed people off and the Labour Party were incredibly arrogant and foolish to show so little regard for people in north Wales.

Here’s Goronwy, looking dapper, his own house not having been submerged:

Goronwy Roberts, Baron Goronwy-Roberts - Wikipedia

 

Goronwy had two children, David and Ann. They will undoubtedly have been influential people in north Wales, but I cannot find out anything about them, except that Ann lived in Pwllheli and died in 2016. The executors of her will were Swayne Johnson Solicitors, 17 Trinity Square, Llandudno. Trinity Square Llandudno is on Dafydd’s turf, the branch of MIND which is run by Dafydd’s gang is located there . David Goronwy-Roberts was still alive at the time of Ann’s death. I suspect that info about them has disappeared from the internet as this blog has become well-known…

Goronwy Roberts held his seat with hefty majorities, some of which were almost as gobsmacking as some of Dafydd Wigley’s majorities. I recognised the names of some of those who challenged Goronwy Roberts; they have previously featured on this blog as paedophiles’ friends. Goronwy was very safe until 1970, when his majority was substantially reduced by Plaid’s Robyn Lewis.

In Feb 1974 Goronwy lost the seat to Dafydd Wigley, but only by 1,728 votes. Articles about Goronwy Roberts mention his deep concern about the way in which he lost his seat and associated events, but I cannot find details of exactly what it was that caused the ructions. Whatever it was, Goronwy didn’t lose his seat because of his tireless support for the Oppressed of north Wales. Sexually assaulted and illegally banged up in Denbigh? It was Nuffin To Do With Goronwy.

 

In 1950, Goronwy had a majority of 28.2% (10,578) over the Tory candidate. Plaid did field a candidate for Caernarfon in 1950, it was John Jones. John Edward Jones, known as J.E. Jones, was born in Melin-y-Wig in Denbighshire. He studied at Bala Grammar School and UCNW. At UCNW, Jones was elected leader of the Students’ Union and conducted a successful campaign to have Welsh made an official language at UCNW, alongside English. Jones was active in Y Tair G, which in 1925 became a component of the new Plaid Cymru. In 1928, he became a teacher in London and he founded a successful branch of Plaid there; as a result, in 1930, he was appointed General Secretary of the Party and returned to Wales. In this role, he was responsible for organising Party conferences and rallies and supporting local branches. J.E. Jones was involved in the campaign against Bombing School in Llyn in 1935 and the flooding of Cwm Tryweryn in 1965 (see post ‘Tan yn Llyn’). He took care of Party press releases and all publicity and occasionally he had to shoulder most of the load in publishing the Party’s papers, Y Ddraig Goch and Welsh Nation . More than a hundred books and pamphlets were published during his term as General Secretary. Jones stood down as General Secretary in 1962, becoming an official adviser to the Party, by which time Dafydd had firmly established himself in Plaid (see post ‘Tan yn Llyn’).

The 1950 General Election was the only time that Jones stood for election. Gwynfor Evans stated that Jones ‘contributed more than anyone to the great feat of keeping Plaid Cymru together during World War II’. WWII was a difficult time for Plaid as a result of allegations by their opponents that ‘Plaid supported Hitler’, an accusation that is still made by some today. It wasn’t quite as simple as that. Some members of Plaid eg. Saunders Lewis and Ambrose Bebb, did have links with fascist movements on mainland Europe, but they grew from interests in Catholic nationalist organisations rather than any great admiration for Hitler. Some members of Plaid were opposed to WWII for a variety of reasons, but then so were many other people in the UK. It has been forgotten how many people in the UK in the years before WWII took the same stance towards the Nazis and the idea of going to war with Germany as some members of Plaid did.

What is rather wore worthy of note is that while campaigning in the 1970 General Election, J.E. Jones was killed in a car accident…

In 1951 Goronwy Roberts had a majority of 24.8% (8,896) over the Tory candidate. In 1955 Goronwy’s majority was 26.3% (9,221) over the Tory candidate

In 1959, Goronwy’s majority was 23.1% (7,942) over the Tory candidate, Tom Hooson. This was the first time that Tom Hooson stood for Parliament; he was subsequently elected as the Tory MP for Brecon and Radnor in 1979 and held the seat until he died of a heart attack in office in 1985 at the age of 52. Tom Hooson was the cousin (and political opponent) of Emlyn Hooson, the Liberal and then Lib Dem MP for Montgomeryshire, 1962-79. Emlyn Hooson was a corrupt barrister on the Chester and Wales Circuit who concealed the crimes of Dafydd and the gang, as well as those of a few others including Jeremy Thorpe. Emlyn Hooson came from Denbighshire and was a big mate of Ronnie Waterhouse. See previous posts.

The Plaid candidate for Caernarfon in 1959 was Dafydd Orwig. Dafydd Orwig was a lecturer at the Normal College in Bangor and by the 1980s was a Gwynedd County Councillor. Dafydd Orwig was involved in the shafting of Patient F (see previous posts) and was known in Bethesda -where he lived – for simply touring the pubs and ordering the Perfect Slaves to support whatever campaign he needed backing for. Dafydd Orwig got the surprise of his life in the 1990s when he robustly supported the building of the Bethesda by-pass, but an opposing campaign driven virtually entirely by English incomers and hippies won the day. The Welsh Office Minister Lord Wyn Roberts, the paedophiles’ bestest friend (see post ‘The Cradle Of Filth’), really loved those hippies, much to the surprise of the hippies themselves. One of the opponents of the by-pass was Ed Ingram aka Filthy Ed, a minion of Professor Fergus Lowe in the School of Psychology at Bangor University. Filthy Ed not only had the dirt on Dafydd and the gang but he was sexually using school girls and was married to someone who starred in the hard core bestiality porn which was a side-line of Dafydd’s gang. I suspect that somehow Lord Wyn Roberts had been made aware of that. See previous posts.

Dafydd Orwig died in Nov 1996, just before the Waterhouse Inquiry began. Dr D. Ben Rees provided an obituary for the Indie, which was certainly an interesting take on the glorious life of Dafydd Orwig:

Bilingual education in Wales owes a great deal to a handful of local government politicians. In Glamorganshire, to the socialist intellectual Lord Heycock, in Gwynedd to Lloyd George’s nephew W.R.P. George and – in particular – to Dafydd Orwig, who was honoured this year by being chosen as Chairman of the new Gwynedd Council.

The new Gwynedd Council replaced the old Gwynedd Council, which had disappeared in the restructuring of the Welsh local authorities in 1996, as ordered by the Boundaries Commission which was Chaired by the well-camouflaged paedophiles’ friend Professor Eric Sunderland, Principal of UCNW, 1984-1994. The local authority shake-up was most useful because it resulted in the disappearance of Clwyd County Council just a few weeks after the Jillings Report, which had investigated the abuse of children in the care of Clwyd County Council since 1974. The Jillings Report was completely suppressed, but John Jillings and his team who conducted the Jillings Investigation were good enough to admit that there had been massive very serious abuse of children and it was very, very bad. Jillings also stated that there was evidence of organised abuse of children in north Wales stretching back decades before 1974. John Jillings refused to say whether he believed that there was a paedophile ring in operation in north Wales. John Jillings was the former Director of Derbyshire Social Services. Which had a paedophile gang operating within it which was linked to the gang in north Wales. See post ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake’.

Orwig had done a long stint as an effective councillor. He had been a member of the Caernarfonshire County Council in 1973 and was a member of Gwynedd County Council from 1974 until local government reorganisation in April 1996. During those 23 years he took every opportunity to safeguard the Welsh language of the policy council. He did so with vigour and made sure that the translation service was given plenty to do by speaking always in his native tongue. I salute him for his courage and was always proud to hear him at the University of Wales Court of Governors pleading for his beloved language.

As George Galloway said to Saddam Hussein, ‘Sir, I salute your courage, your strength, your indefatigability, and I want you to know that we are with you, hatta al-nasr, hatta al-nasr, hatta al-Quds [until victory, until victory, until Jerusalem]’.

He argued with conviction and his vision was of a bilingual Wales with every child able to speak the language and every student understanding it.

‘Do ewe mean mari-jew-ana? Don’t ewe think I was handsome? I think ewe should be in prrrisson.’

Orwig played an active part in the academic provision of textbooks in his own discipline. He wrote his first book in 1961, Fy Atlas Cyntaf (“My First Atlas”), then he adapted Cyril Midgley’s Looking at the Map for Edrychwch ar y Map (1972) and C. Penrose’s The Landscape of Britain for Tirlun Prydain (also 1972). But his outstanding contribution was as editor of Yr Atlas Cymraeg (“The Welsh Atlas”), published in 1988. It was the culmination of eight years of hard work for him and his team of contributors.

Dafydd Orwig taught at the county school in Blaenau Ffestiniog and the Dyffryn Ogwen High School in Bethesda, before being appointed a lecturer in a teachers’ training college, Bangor Normal College, where he became an effective ambassador among future teachers.

Ceryl Wyn Davies, a teacher from Blaenau Ffestiniog, who trained at Bangor Normal, was repeatedly convicted of sex offences against children – including his pupils – but was allowed by Gwynedd County Council to continue teaching. For one of his court appearances, Ceryl Wyn employed one Emlyn Hooson QC to act for him. See previous posts . Bangor Normal trained numerous teachers who spent their careers in north Wales and quite a few who ended up teaching in other parts of the UK.

Orwig was a very politically minded individual and his support for Plaid Cymru was total. He served the party in every possible sphere, at grass roots in the slate town of Bethesda, in the council chamber and, in a number of general elections, as agent for the nationalist candidate in the Conwy constituency.

Personally he showed the way by deleting his own original surname of Jones,

Could a certain Top Doctor have possibly brought that name into disrepute??

a symbolic act which became popular with so many younger members of the Welsh Language Society.

No of course he didn’t, Dafydd was mates with many of them

The society was proud he was one of its early members.

That well-known breaker of Welsh glass ceilings, Meri Huws aka the Crack Of Doom – a bedfellow of many a Welsh Gov’t Labour Minister, including it is rumoured Rhodri The Ale Twat (see post ‘People With Energy’) – was the first Woman to be Chair of the Welsh Language Society, 1981-83. During the 1980s, Meri was employed as a social worker by Gwynedd Social Services. Meri’s patch covered the Ty’r Felin children’s home in Bangor, where the children were violently assaulted, forced to work in local business for pitiful or no wages and were sold for sex by their social workers at various locations, including Dolphin Square in London (see post ‘Are You Local?’). The man in charge of Ty’r Felin was Nefyn Dodd, who boasted of being mates with Dafydd. Meri subsequently bagged a lecturing job at the Normal College. Like Dafydd Orwig, Meri was Passionate and Committed where the Welsh language was concerned. Meri Chaired the Welsh Language Board, 2004-12 – despite a row resulting from allegations that she was only given the job because she was shagging yet another Welsh Gov’t Minister, namely Andrew Davies – and in 2012 Meri was appointed the Welsh Gov’ts first Welsh Language Commissioner.

Dafydd Orwig was born in Deiniolen, a hill village near Caernarfon, which certainly by the 1960s was a by-word for disadvantage and hardship. I know of at least one case of someone from Deiniolen who as a six year old in the early 1970s lost his mum to suicide. His dad had great trouble looking after him and he was left to scavenge for food. He began drinking as a teenager and by his mid-20s he had a very serious alcohol problem and suffered with his ‘nerves’. By that time he was living down the road from Dafydd Orwig in Bethesda. He didn’t Bottle It Up like Men Do, he Shared and asked the GP in Bethesda for help. They gave him a prescription for valium and no further appointments. However, when I asked the Bethesda Police for advice after this man’s drinking caused a disturbance at my house – although he had not damaged anyone or anything – they offered to arrested ‘the fat bastard’ for me. I told them that the last thing that he needed was arresting and they said that in that case they couldn’t help. At the time, Dafydd was being paid a lot of money to provide an alcohol abuse service in Gwynedd.

The fat bastard was later the target of malicious allegations by a fucking nightmare of a lodger, Donna Morgan, who moved into my house. The fat bastard and his wife had been very generous to Donna – as had I. They had given her daily lifts in and out of Bangor University, where she was doing a Social Policy degree; they had bought her groceries and purchased toys and clothes for her small boy. To show us how grateful she was, she bounced a cheque for £500 on me and stole everything of any value in my house, leaving me a note telling me that if I went to the police, two of her mates would ‘vouch for’ her and testify that I was mad and a danger to her son. I tracked Donna down and the police ordered me not to go near her, because she was ‘in hiding’. Not from me, but from the father of her son who was a gangster. So I obtained a civil court order against her in an attempt to get my £500. When I served tried to serve it on Donna in the Students’ Union in Bangor University, the Welfare Officer Fran Tate – a paedophiles’ friend who later worked for the CAB where Lucille Hughes was a senior manager – tried to have me thrown out by the security men. They couldn’t chuck me out because I had an order from a judge allowing me access to the building. So they helped Donna get away out of a different entrance. I subsequently bumped into her in Bangor, so I served the order on her there. She gave me look of bovine incomprehension and scarpered. No-one ever heard from  her again.

I later found out that Donna Morgan was a gift from the Social Services. She had grown up in care in Conwy and they knew that I had advertised for a lodger and sent her my way because they thought that I deserved her. She was also shagging some of the police officers at Bangor Police Station – or according to them she was – and they cheerily arrested people at whom she pointed the finger. Which after Donna ran from the Bethesda/Bangor area, included a man whom she accused of raping her. She eventually fessed up that there was no truth in her allegations, but not until he had been arrested and held in custody, after being denied bail.

Donna Morgan also made friends with a man called Barry, who was a transgender mature student at Bangor University. He sounded like a very vulnerable man with quite serious difficulties, so he must have been overjoyed when Donna stuck the knife into him as well.

The fat bastard had a lucky escape; after Donna began to make allegations about him, his wife told the two paedophiles’ friends who were going to Vouch For Her in the event of me going to the police that if Donna continued telling malicious lies, she’d slap her one. The two Vouchers were a cocaine addict/dealer called Malcom Fox and his girlfriend Denise Baker. Denise Baker later worked as a psychologist at the Hergest Unit and at Manchester University, where she was sacked after being deemed to be a risk to vulnerable people. Sadly her boss Prof Louis Appleby, the Westminster Gov’ts Mental Health Tsar, not only didn’t warn anyone about Denise, so she got another job with vulnerable people, but somehow many years after she left his employment she was given a PhD on the basis of her ‘work’ with Appleby’s team. She then metamorphosed into Dr Denise Baker-McClearn,  having married Sean McClearn, a children’s social worker with Anglesey Social Services. Denise’s stepfather was a social worker as well, in the south of England. After being sacked from yet another job, Dr Denise Baker-McClearn gave up being a ‘health psychologist’ and ran a pop-up restaurant, where most of her customers were her husband’s colleagues. Then Denise opened a ‘social enterprise’, a cafe in Bethesda with was run entirely on donations of left-over food from supermarkets and other generous organisations who didn’t realise with whom they were dealing. It ended in much bad feeling when Denise stood accused of harassing and intimidating an Empowered Service User who lived in the flat above the cafe, who after a few encounters with Denise didn’t dare leave her flat. Dr Baker-McClearn has now left north Wales after having helped so many with her ever-giving heart and moved elsewhere after amending her name yet again after her husband kicked her out. See previous posts.

 

So much for Dafydd Orwig’s ambassadorial talents and his toxic mycelia, which penetrated much of Bangor University, particularly after the Normal College merged with the University in 1996. Following the merger, Dafydd Orwig’s associates were to be found in great number in the University, especially in the School of Education. They won’t all have liked him because he was a nasty piece of work, but it will have been the usual story – Fings Break…

Dafydd Orwig died on Nov 10 1996. Nov 10 is my birthday. If I’d have known that he had pegged out, I’d have had a double celebration, particularly as in 1996 those we know and love were working extra hard at pursuing Patient F, as well as me, through the courts.

 

Now for a brief overview of Dr D. Ben Rees, who wrote that hagiography of a deeply unpleasant man. David Benjamin Rees is a Welsh and English-language publisher, author, lecturer and Minister in the Presbyterian Church of Wales since 1962 and leader of the Welsh community in Liverpool. He leads one of Liverpool’s five remaining Welsh chapels. Dr D. Ben Rees’s small publishing house, Modern Welsh Publications Ltd, was established in 1963. From 1963 to 1968 it operated from Abercynon in South Wales. Since 1968 it has operated from Allerton, Liverpool and is the only Welsh language publishing house still operating in Liverpool. D. Ben Rees writes largely on pacifism, ‘Welsh culture’ and theology.

 

In 1964, the year that Harold Wilson became PM, Goronwy Roberts’s majority over the Tory candidate, Shelagh Roberts, was 30.17% (9,862).

Shelagh Roberts was born in Port Talbot and was educated at Milford Haven County School, Ystalyfera School and then St. Wyburn School at Birkdale. After leaving school she started work with the Inland Revenue in Liverpool. Roberts was a member of Kensington Borough Council, 1953 to 1971, while she had a go at becoming the Tory MP for Caenarfon. She was then a member of the GLC, 1970-81. In 1981, Shelagh Roberts was appointed a Dame for her ‘political work’. Which at that point had only ever encompassed losing the election at Caernarfon in 1964 and then sitting on the GLC when the London Boroughs sent hundreds of kids in their care to children’s homes in north Wales where they were abused and trafficked into prostitution; the GLC knew about this but concealed it, continuing to send the kids to north Wales…

Dame Shelagh was a member of Port of London Authority, Basildon Development Corporation and the Race Relations Board. The Dame represented London South West in the European Parliament, 1979-89. Her ‘service’ in the European Parliament was briefly interrupted in 1979 when it was discovered that she held an ‘office of profit’ – Shelagh was a member of the Occupational Pensions Board which was no doubt an office of enormous profit – under the Crown and was disqualified from serving. The Dame then resigned the office of profit and was re-elected as an MEP a few months later. After losing her seat to Labour in 1989, as a booby prize, the Dame was made Chairman of the London Tourist Board, serving until her death. It was announced on 31 December 1991 that the Dame was to be created a life peer – after the careers of the key witnesses to the crimes of Dafydd et al had all been ruined – but she died from cancer in January 1992, aged 67, before she could take her seat in the Lords. Roberts never married.

In 1966 when Harold Wilson took the nation by storm, Goronwy’s majority was 33.95% (10,678) over the Tory candidate. Then in 1970, Goronwy’s majority was slashed to 6.76% (2,296) by Plaid’s Robyn Lewis. Robyn Lewis is the Godfather of the corrupt solicitors of Pwllheli and served as the Archdruid for National Eisteddfod purposes for a long while. Lewis has spent much time in dispute with other paedophiles’ friends and has been active in both the Labour Party and Plaid. See previous posts.

So although Goronwy Roberts made much of the implied dirty tricks at the Feb 1974 General Election, the writing was on the wall by 1970 when Robyn Lewis nearly finished him.

The Marxist historian Eric Hobsbawm was one of those radicals who for years spent his summers at Croesor, in a cottage on the Brondanw estate which he rented off Sir Clough Williams-Ellis (see post ‘The Village’). In his autobiography ‘Interesting Times’, Hobsbawm devoted a chapter to Croesor. He wrote about how he and most of the other summer visitors from England were faced with a great deal of unpleasantness from a contingent of local people in north Wales from the late 1960s/early 70s which became so bad that most of the summer visitors gradually stopped going to Croesor. The real crunch came when Clough’s grandson Robin Llywelyn inherited the estate and cancelled the tenancies of the summer visitors. I spoke to a number of people who, like Eric, had been part of the ‘Welsh Bloomsbury Set’ at Croesor and they all remembered the terrible bad feeling which had saddened a lot of people who had been staying at Croesor for the summer for decades and had been good friends with some of the local people. I was given a variety of reasons as to what the cause was. Robin Llywelyn’s rationale was that he would only let houses to local people, not to second homers. Second home ownership in Gwynedd was causing much bad feeling at the time, understandably so in some cases. Yet the cottages in Croesor were not sought after by local people; people who grew up in Croesor told me that they loved it there but they all wanted to leave and did because there was no employment there. It would be difficult to argue that, in Croesor, second homers were squeezing locals out in the way that they did in places like Abersoch. Other local people told me that there was bad feeling that people like Eric couldn’t understand because he and the other summer visitors were wealthy – Eric et al didn’t perceive themselves to be, but compared to people in Croeser they were – and the summer crowd ‘played’ at chopping wood, living the simple life etc, but it was just playing; they weren’t looking at a lifetime of bugger all money and bad housing. In his writing, Eric attributed the hostility to the summer visitors to the rise of Welsh Nationalist feeling, which he claimed was whipping up hatred unnecessarily. Eric was a central European Jew who had spent his early life in Vienna and Berlin and later moved to London with the rise of Hitler. He was bound to hate nationalism of any kind.

However, Eric told me something which he didn’t mention in his book. He cryptically remarked that the real cause of the aggro at Croesor ‘was to be found in Croesor School’. There were great anxieties in Croesor over the future of the school, which ironically only remained open as long as it did because of a group of English incomers who wanted their children to learn through the medium of Welsh and drove their kids several miles from their homes elsewhere to attend Croesor School. A number of former pupils of Croesor School told me a few other things about the school, but they told me in confidence, so I’m not going to blog about their info.

However Eric knew about Dafydd and that trafficking gang, as did everyone else, locals and visitors, in Croesor/Llanfrothen. They also knew that Dafydd was somehow linked to Bertrand Russell, who in his later years lived near Croesor and was a friend of Clough. Whatever aggro was caused by the dynamics of a Welsh speaking village hosting a crowd of upper middle class Bohemians every summer, as well as the anxieties regarding the future of the school and the rise of Plaid and Robin Llywelyn pledging allegiance to Plaid, the real problem was that bloody trafficking gang, which by the time that Robin kicked all the summer visitors out was running the whole of north Wales…See previous posts.

In Feb 1974, Dafydd Wigley won the Caernarfon seat with a majority of 5.00% (1,728) over Goronwy. Tristan Garel-Jones stood as the Tory candidate and came third. Garel-Jones was elected as the Tory MP for Watford in 1979, retaining the seat until 1997, when he was made a life peer. Following his election to Parliament, Garel-Jones served in various Whip positions positions and also as Minister for Europe, 1990-93. He was seen as an effective Whip who successfully delivered Parliamentary votes in favour of Thatch’s legislation and was considered to be ‘a mixture of Machiavelli and Ivan the Terrible’ by the Thatcherite right-wing. Garel-Jones is said to be the inspiration for the fictional Whip turned PM, Francis Urquhart in ‘House of Cards’. What no-one did while Garel-Jones was doing his ‘You might very well think that; I couldn’t possibly comment’ bit, was to confront him with ‘don’t lean on me you threatening bastard or I’ll blow the whistle on Peter Morrison and the rest of them as well…’

Garel-Jones was a leading pro-European and remained so despite the Conservative Party moving to a more eurosceptic position. Many of the paedophiles’ friends were very keen on Europe, as were Dafydd and John Allen themselves, as they held ‘clinics’ and took children for ‘holidays’ there…

Garel-Jones voted for Thatch in the first round of the leadership challenge by Heseltine, but reserved the right to vote against her if it went to a second round. He subsequently voted for Douglas Hurd. Hurd colluded with Dafydd and the gang throughout Hurd’s time as Home Secretary. Hurd’s uncle was a botanist who had links with the Plant Biology Dept at Bangor University, of which two members of staff were married to members of the trafficking gang and other members of staff were very friendly with them (see eg. post ‘Additional Security Measures’).

After he stepped down from the Commons in 1997, Garel-J0nes was given a life peerage. Garel-Jones is a supporter of Humanists UK and a Vice Chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Humanist Group.

 

In Oct 1974 Dafydd Wigley held the seat with a majority of 8.400% (2,894), over the Labour candidate Emlyn Sherrington. Kremlyn Sherrington spent many years as a lecturer in the School of History in Bangor University, where he was known for trying to cultivate the company of women some forty years younger than himself. Which I always thought was a bit of a joke until someone told me that he did rather more than pursue them, he got as far as exposing himself to them at University functions. I’m sure that they were not that wowed, but Kremlyn obviously didn’t realise. Kremlyn’s colleagues in the School of History included Dinah, who was married to Ron Evans, the corrupt lawyer who was employed by Gwynedd County Council to frame witnesses and who concealed Dafydd’s gang for years and Nia Powell, who I was told has a father who was a judge. I have no idea which judge Nia’s dad was, but whoever he was, it really would be surprising if he didn’t collude with Dafydd et al; he’d have been the only judge who didn’t. Nia was a student at Aberystwyth University when Neil Hamilton, also a student, famously goose-stepped around the institution. The Crack of Doom was also a student at Aber and is of a similar vintage to Nia and Neil Hamilton.

In Oct 1974, the Liberal candidate for Caernarfon was a Dewi Williams. There was a Top Doctor, a GP, in Caernarfon of that name who was on board with the gang and there was another Top Doctor as well with the same name who sat on the Council of Bangor University. I don’t know if either of those Top Docs were the Dewi Williams who stood in Oct 1974, but standing as the Liberal candidate is the sort of thing that a Top Doc might do.

In May 1979 when Thatch thrashed Labour, Wigley’s majority rose to 24.90% (8,724) over Labour’s Thomas Merfyn Hughes. Now that was a curious incident, because Thomas Merfyn Hughes within a few short years was the election agent for the Plaid MP Elfyn Llwyd, a dodgy barrister who was Chair of Gwynedd Law Society and on board with Dafydd et al. Merfyn Hughes was a retired social worker who lived in Croesor. Merfyn came to a nasty end in 2010. His body was found in someone else’s garden in Llanfrothen, at the foot of a steep embankment, concealed from view behind a greenhouse. His body lay undiscovered for 36 hours. Merfyn had the honour of being the subject of the most bizarre inquest conclusion in the history of Gwynedd, which is certainly some honour. The notorious coroner Dewi Pritchard Jones concluded that Merfyn had been walking home from the pub in the early hours, had fallen down the embankment, landed in the other person’s garden and decided to have a nap there. It was a cold winter’s night, so as Merfyn was having 40 winks, he froze to death without noticing. Presumably he also hid his body.

I noted Merfyn’s death because in 2005 I encountered him on the phone. He was at the time a senior manager for Gwynedd Social Services and had the remit of managing the paedophile’s colleagues in the Arfon Community Mental Health Team. They were unlawfully refusing to hand over my file – which they should never have had anyway because I wasn’t and had never been a ‘client’ of theirs – so I rang their manager, who was Merfyn. He pissed me off by calling me a Service User, but to be fair he told me that because Keith Fearns et al were unlawfully witholding documentation, he would physically go down to their office and remove it from them. Which Merfyn did. He then sent it to me and I discovered not only the usual lies and plans to frame me, but mountains of information from various third parties which they should never have had, should never have asked for and should never have been given when they did ask for it. It was mind blowing, even by the standards of the paedophile gang. They had been keeping records for years of my university courses, my job applications, medical conditions unrelated to mental health, my friendships, my housing arrangements, absolutely everything, it was extraordinary. Interspersed with all the info were numerous notes about how they were ‘most concerned’ to hear that I was now doing this course or that job or living at that address and that they would now be ‘sharing information’ to alert everyone to the dangerous nutter at large. All completely unlawful, even if I had have been a dangerous nutter and they had been providing me with any sort of ‘service’.

Merfyn was found dead, aged 63 yrs, in Nov 2010. By that time, Brown and I had begun publishing about the mental health services in north Wales. We had appeared in the broadsheets and were openly discussing our plans to publish a book about my appalling experiences at the hands of Dafydd et al. It was clear that the police would soon be forced to re-open the investigation into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal and the need to review the Waterhouse Inquiry was being discussed.

For the full background on Merfyn’s death, see post ‘A Particularly Worrying Death’.

Such was the concern over Gwynne and Dafydd’s habit of banging people up in Denbigh who had crossed the paths of their mates, at one point an issue was made of there being no Welsh speaking psychiatric social worker in north Wales, thus targets were being ‘assessed’ in English, a language which many of them could not speak at all well. The argument was a red herring because Dafydd and Gwynne were first language Welsh – Dafydd was from Bethesda – as were scores of Angels at Denbigh. If anyone had really wanted to stop the gross abuses they could have. However in response to this, a Welsh speaking psychiatric social worker was appointed. I imagine that this simply made it even easier for Dafydd and Gwynne to incarcerate people; ‘ooh but they were interviewed in their mother tongue, OF COURSE the assessment was full and proper and they are definitely MAD’. It was people who lived in Croesor who told me about this, so I am wondering if the Welsh speaking Perfect Slave of a psychiatric social worker who was installed back in the early 1970s was Merfyn Hughes.

I hate to think what was happening to that social worker who once stood as the Labour candidate against Dafydd Wigley for election to the Commons. Fings Obviously Broke.

 

Didn’t any of you wonder what had gone on Windbag/Miranda/Gordon??? Or indeed you Betty Williams, who would have personally known Merfyn Hughes?

Fallen down an embankment in the middle of the night, landed in someone else’s garden, gone to sleep, died and then hidden his own body?

‘You might very well think that; I couldn’t possibly comment.’

MP Betty Williams tells her life story - Daily Post

 

Dafydd Wigley

 

Lord Wigley is still churning out a weekly column for ‘The Daily Post’, perhaps for his next piece he could write a few words about his memories of Merfyn Hughes before Merfyn met his slapstick death.

 

1979 was the year in which Dafydd had Mary Wynch unlawfully arrested and imprisoned in Risley Remand Centre and then the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. By 1979, Dafydd did exactly what he wanted, along with the other rotten Top Doctors and the ring of crooked solicitors in north Wales of which Mary complained. Risley was fully complicit and as Mary later demonstrated, the Treasury Solicitor was also part of the corruption. By 1979 there was havoc at UCNW and there was en masse abuse of children in the numerous children’s homes that were now springing up all over north Wales. The supply of kids and young people to the VIP trafficking gang was well underway.

In 1983 Wigley’s majority had increased to 31% (10,989). Mary Wynch was by now on her way to the Master of the Rolls; Dafydd et al knew that, but the wider public didn’t. Wigley’s nearest rival had been the Tory candidate. Betty Williams, the Labour candidate, came third; Michael Foot was still leader of the Labour Party at the 1983 General Election and had known about Dafydd and the gang for years. Betty Williams studied at Bangor Normal College and served as a Gwynedd County Councillor and the Mayor of Arfon in 1990. In 1997, Betty became the Blair’s babe for Conwy. She held the seat until 2010, throughout it all ignoring complaints about the abuse of mental health patients. Betty knew about Dafydd’s gang and simply kept schtum. See previous posts.

 

Alice Cooper - Elected.jpg

Alice Cooper’s 1972 hit ‘Elected’ was a reworked version of their debut single ‘Reflected’, from their 1969 album ‘Pretties for You’.

Ioan Bowen Rees was appointed Gwynedd County Council’s Chief Exec in 1980 and remained in post until 1991. Lucille Hughes had held a senior management post in Gwynedd Social Services since the mid-1970s. In 1981 Lucille was given responsibility for the children’s section and in Oct 1983, she became Director of Social Services for Gwynedd. Ioan had stood as the Plaid candidate for Conway in 1955 and for Merthyr Tydfil in 1964. See post ‘I Know Nuzzing…’

In 1987, Wigley’s majority rose to 36.60% (12,812). His nearest rival was the Tory candidate, Felix Aubel. Labour’s David Williams came third.

Felix Aubel was born in Cardiff to an anti-Communist soldier from the former Yugoslavia and a teacher from Aberdare. Aubel has stood many times for Parliament but never won election: he was once described by the Welsh language campaigner Ffred Ffransis as being ‘too honest’ to be an MP. In 1983, Felix stood as the SDP candidate in the Cynon Valley, then again in the subsequent by-election in 1984. Aubel left the SDP in disagreement with their policies on defence and devolution and joined the Conservatives. Aubel’s best performance as a Tory candidate was in the 2001 general election when he came within 750 votes of toppling the Lib Dems in Brecon and Radnorshire. Aubel stood down as a candidate in 2004 and says he is busy enough with his lecturing, media career and Congregational ministry in Carmarthenshire to consider standing again. In a 2010 interview he said that he remained loyal to the Conservative cause.

Here’s Felix campaigning with Jeffrey Archer in Cardigan in 1996:

Felix Aubel and Jeffrey Archer

 

 

 

 

 

By 1987 when Felix was trying his chances in Caernarfon as a Tory, Dafydd’s gang ruled supreme. Patient F had been framed and unlawfully imprisoned in Risley and then Denbigh after he’d told a few too many people that he knew that kids in the Ty Newydd children’s home in Bangor were being mistreated and the gang had declared all out war on me, Brown, Brown’s brother and our friends who were witnesses. I had been unlawfully arrested and held in Denbigh and my housemate Anne had been killed. Alison Taylor had been suspended from her job and was well on the way to being sacked. The Windbag tried his hardest to ingratiate himself to Tony Francis’s mates in the NHS, but it wasn’t enough to win Paedophilia HQ. The criminality was enormous, but no-one, no-one in authority was challenging it.

The Gang Of Four never fielded an SDP candidate in Caernarfon, although Dr Death personally knew some of the Top Doctors in Dafydd’s gang and Dr D.G.E. Wood was a big fan of Dr Death. Every member of the Gang Of Four knew about Dafydd and his gang and maxed out on this knowledge when they developed their initial election strategy (see post ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’).

 

In 1992, Wigley’s majority increased to 39.90% (14,476). His nearest rival was Peter E.H. Fowler, the Tory candidate. The Labour candidate was Sharon Mainwaring. In the 1990s, Sharon Mainwaring was a Director of several companies, all based in Swansea, one of which was Atebion, . Atebion set up a branch in Bangor, it advertised itself as a ‘training organisation’ for wimmin having a hard time who wanted to return to work. I was one of those lured through its doors. There was only one course offered – word processing/typing. I though oh well it’ll be useful, I can earn a bit of extra cash part-time. I should have known better, it was of course a con. Not a complete con, but certainly not value for money. We all paid well over £100 – everyone being utterly skint and saving up out of benefits – for the privilege of being sat in front of a word processor for a few hours, after being given an instruction book and told to follow it. We taught ourselves while a bint in Next clothes wafted in and out of the room now and then without speaking to any of us. There was no qualification at the end of it. I never used those ‘skills’ again. A lot of people have done very well out of Helping Wimmin, but not the Wimmin who have handed over money to be Helped. Sharon Mainwaring was also a Director of Lliw Valley Women’s Aid, 1992-94, yet another organisation – founded by Jane Hutt – which concealed Dafydd and all the associated gangs while Helping Wimmin. Mainwaring’s name also crops up associated with ‘Care and Repair Cymru’, an organisation which does odd jobs for the needy. ‘Care and Repair’ do do things for people but only the things that would be done under normal circumstances by Housing Associations, Councils etc if they actually did their jobs properly.

Mary Wynch had appeared in a TV documentary in March 1991 and a group of Lib Dems had signed an Early Day Motion in support of her a few days after the TV documentary. Everything went quiet very soon after that; every Lib Dem who signed the EDM subsequently received a peerage, except for the Lib Dem who tabled it, David Bellotti, who instead had his career in Parliament destroyed. See post ‘The Mary Wynch Case – Details’. By 1992, my career and the careers of three other witnesses had been completely wrecked and there had been repeated attempts to imprison me on the basis of the gang’s perjury. The North Wales Police had held an investigation into the possibility of a VIP paedophile gang in north Wales/Chester and in 1992 had colluded that there was no evidence for one. Alison Taylor had been trashed by everyone. A civil war had broken out in the School of Social Sciences at Bangor University, elicited by the paedophile gang (see previous posts eg. ‘Badlands’). Reinforcements were called in by the gang and there were many TV programmes, chat shows, books and articles about the wonders of psychiatry, ‘Welsh culture’ and its proud traditions in literature, music and arts and a flurry of interest in the history of psychiatry in north Wales, of which not one account contained more than a grain of truth. Dafydd’s Denbigh Dungeon didn’t get a mention, although it was still in operation.

Just days after Dafydd Wigley romped home with his huge majority, the Brighton firebomb killed five witnesses to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. The man who allegedly confessed to starting the fire was found dead shortly after and over the next few years a few of the witnesses who had managed to survive the firebomb were found dead. See post ‘The Silence Of The Welsh Lambs’.

Yma O Fucking Hyd.

In the 1997 General Election, things had begun to take a little turn downward for Lord Wigley. He retained the seat, but his majority was reduced to 21.60% (7,449), over his nearest rival, the Labour candidate Eifion Wyn Williams. It was the General Election of Miranda’s landslide and Betty Williams had been redeployed to Conwy to do her bit for Miranda’s Wimmin. North Wales had begun to look a little tarnished after a steady supply of dead former kids in care and psych patients as well as the Jillings Inquiry – even though Cherie and Miranda’s mate Michael Beloff QC (the son of Lord Max Beloff, a mate of Ioan Bowen Rees) had ensured that the Jillings Report was completely suppressed (see post ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake’) – plus numerous allegations that there definitely was a big paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire that was indeed being concealed at the highest levels of Gov’t. The Waterhouse Inquiry had begun and Hergest patients were being arrested constantly for ludicrous reasons, including Patient F and me. The gang were frantically busy behind the scenes – once more – trying to make a case for banging me up in a secure mental hospital.

By 1997 the UK pop scene was becoming overwhelmed by the New Talent from Wales; Cool Cymru was upon us. A great many of the young songsters were the offspring of people who had facilitated or colluded with Dafydd and the associated gangs. Gruff Rhys, who’s band the Super Furry Animals received inexplicable boosts to their careers from Big Names in the music industry, was the son of Ioan Bowen Rees; Gruff used to practice with his band at the end of the terrace where I lived. Cerys Matthews was a former psychiatric nurse who had, for reasons never explained, given that up; her dad was a Top Doctor who had worked in Cardiff and then West Wales, where there were trafficking gangs linked with Dafydd’s lot. Huw Bunford had been a colleague of John Owen, a teacher and TV scriptwriter from south Wales who abused his pupils for years and was found dead in Oct 2001 days before his trial was due to begin. See posts ‘The International Language Of Screaming’ and ‘Yet More Inglorious Bastards’.

In 1999 my friend’s baby  – my friend was a witness to the criminality in north Wales – died as a result of negligence at Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton. She was told by a Top Doctor that he knew that the staff were going to lie if my friend took legal action. When I finally received copies of my medical records, there was information about my friend’s baby’s death in there.

Dafydd Wigley did not fight the 2001 General Election. The Plaid candidate was Hywel Williams, a former psychiatric social worker, who shared platforms with members of Dafydd’s gang and had been the Director of Social Work at Bangor University. Hywel won – the constituency was from 2001 known as Arfon – with a majority of 12.10% (3,511), over the Labour candidate Martin Eaglestone. Whom I met a few years ago, at a friend’s house. Martin was very frosty to me and I thought ‘that’s not very good for a candidate on the campaign trail’, but I later realised that Martin probably knew who I was, as did a few other frosty campaigning candidates.

Don’t mention the war! Or indeed Dafydd and the paedophile gang.

 

Between 1997 and 2001, the most enormous punch-up occurred within Plaid over Dafydd Wigley, but I have never found out what it was all about. Wigley stepped aside on the grounds of his heart trouble. He did have heart trouble but there was also a Grade A scrap.Years later Wigley’s wife Elinor Bennett wrote a little bit about it, maintaining that her husband had been treated appallingly after years of loyal service, but there still wasn’t much light shed on matters. Because Hywel Williams had been so fucking rude to me and other Empowered Service Users when we dared raise concerns about the abuse of mental health patients, I just thought ‘oh it’ll have been Hywel and a bunch of thugs causing trouble’, but I now know that Dafydd Wigley colluded every bit as much with the gang as Hywel did. Only Wigley was a better actor. I have a new respect for Hywel – he made it obvious that he didn’t give a fuck about us, he openly had coffee with the people who threatened and assaulted us and appeared on Dr Dafydd Alun Jones’s twitter feed, whereas Dafydd Wigley pretended to be nice to us.

There’s nothing like honesty and transparency in politics. If you’re going to be mates with a gang of paedophiles, then do be seen around Gwynedd supping with them a la Hywel.

Ym O Hyd!

Hywel. His attributes his alopecia to stress. I can understand that.

Hywel held the seat in 2005, with a majority of 18.60% over Martin Eaglestone. The Tory candidate was Guy Opperman. Opperman is now the Tory MP for Hexham, having been elected in 2010. Hexham is near Newcastle-upon-Tyne, the location of a long-standing trafficking ring linked to Dafydd’s gang which supplied both kids and staff junior and senior to north Wales. Opperman was born in Marlborough and was educated at Harrow School. He has a degree in law from the University of Buckingham and a diploma from the University of Lille, France.

Opperman was called to the Bar in 1989 and spent 20 years as a barrister of which 15 years were spent predominantly at the criminal bar. Opperman prosecuted and defended in a number of murder and rape trials. Opperman did many years of pro bono work with the Western Circuit Free Representation Unit and the Bar Pro Bono Unit, providing free legal assistance in hundreds of cases on behalf of Victim Support and CAB. Lucille has been involved with the senior management of CAB for many years. Ronnie Waterhouse also had his fingers in the CAB pie, as does Tal Michael, the son of paedophiles’ and Miranda’s friend Alun Michael, the former First Secretary of Wales who scarpered immediately that the Waterhouse Report was published. See previous posts.

Opperman was awarded the Bar Pro Bono Award by Miranda’s Attorney General, Lord Goldsmith QC, for his voluntary work on behalf of victims in Criminal Injuries Compensation Appeals. Peter Goldsmith was given his peerage just before the publication of the Waterhouse Report and became AG the year following its publication. In 2009, the then Attorney General, Baroness Patricia Scotland QC, presented him with a Pro Bono Hero award in the House of Commons for his work on preventing hospital closures. Patricia is a paedophiles’ friend of the highest order and three previous blog are dedicated to Patricia and her pals.

Opperman was a Councillor in Kennet, Wiltshire, 1995-99.

Opperman led a legal campaign to oppose the closure of the NHS’s Savernake Hospital at Marlborough which he credited with saving his mother’s life from cancer. Although Opperman probably doesn’t know with any certainty that they did, but campaigning on behalf of the Top Docs is a favourite past-time for politicians.

Opperman runs a series of social action projects in the North East. In 2010, he established a work experience scheme based in his Hexham office to give young people an insight into politics and experience in work. Since its inception almost 100 local young people have taken part in the programme. During Christmas 2011, he collected presents for soldiers serving abroad in Afghanistan. In 2012, he coordinated the collection of more than 300 toys for disadvantaged children in north east England as part of the Northumberland Conservatives’ Christmas appeal, “Buy One More Toy”.

This is all good clean fun Guy, but those kids would probably have benefited more from you exposing the horror which passes for ‘children’s social services’ in your neck of the woods.

In September 2012 Opperman was appointed as PPS to Mark Harper, the Immigration Minister at the Home Office. Which is not quite as fluffy as campaigning on behalf of the NHS. Theresa was Home Secretary at the time and oversaw deaths and abuses in immigration detention centres and was responsible for those Vans Of Hate telling darkies to go home. While Home Secretary, Theresa organised the Macur Review of the Waterhouse Inquiry, which, surprise surprise, was another heavily redacted cover-up, that maintained that there was nothing untoward with Ronnie’s original. Not that Theresa would ever want the sordid truth to be revealed, Theresa having been one of the Councillors of the London Borough of Merton, which was served by St George’s Hospital Medical School when St George’s was facilitating the trafficking ring which was directly linked to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales.

Opperman has previously described himself as “rather on the left” of the Conservative Party and has previously opposed regional pay but supported the Living Wage, regional banks, and industrial activism. He called for his Party to do more to show it supports “the hard working people in our public sector”. Like Angels and Top Doctors!

Opperman’s interests in Parliament include assisted dying and prison reform.  On 8 August 2013, Opperman declared his support for the Living Wage in an article for the New Statesman. In this article he asked: “How and why did we let it become acceptable for a full-time job not to pay enough to live on?”. Fancy making any points about the problems that excessively high pay among some people in the NHS is causing then Guy?

Although he led a campaign to oppose the closure of Savernake Hospital, Opperman has overseen multiple NHS service closures in his constituency, for instance, the shutting of the overnight urgent care services at Hexham hospital. Er – would it be the distressed psych patients who are turning up to use that service?

Guy Opperman was appointed as Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Department for Work and Pensions on 14 June 2017. He quickly found himself mired in controversy in the national press, when footage from 2013 was uncovered showing him stating that he understood what it was like to live on a zero-hours contract because he once worked as a £250-per-hour barrister. Weeks later, in response to the group Women Against State Pension Inequality, he was quoted as saying that older women who face cuts to their state pension could take up apprenticeships as a route to re-employment. Well people who carry on like me would be quite willing Guy, but there is quite a problem of age discrimination in the job market. Furthermore, the WASPI protesters have paid into their pensions, it’s just that the rules were changed after a few decades of them doing that… Opperman faced criticism in October 2017 for pulling out of a pensions fringe event at the Tory Party Conference in an apparent attempt to avoid a nearby protest staged by WASPI.

Opperman was criticised in the ‘Financial Times’ in September 2017 for being “clueless” about the Lifetime ISA and for following a “line of pensions Ministers with no interest in pensions stretching back to the 1990s”.

In April 2011, Opperman was diagnosed with a brain tumour after suffering from headaches whilst at work in Parliament. He was rushed to hospital on the advice of his fellow Conservative MP and doctor, Dan Poulter and underwent emergency surgery. He recovered fully after several months. Yeah, Guy would have, he’s campaigned on behalf of the Top Doctors. You’re only left to die by The Walton Centre if you and your nearest and dearest have challenged the paedophiles’ friends a la Nerys the Bangor sociologist (see previous posts).

Guy Opperman has raised almost £10,000 for charity including over £4,000 in 2011 for the National Brain Appeal at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery which he credits with saving his life after suffering from a brain tumour. But as Guy is not a neurosurgeon, once again he wouldn’t actually know. The Top Docs would and they also know a useful PR vehicle when they see one. Guy and Labour MP Paul Blomfield, who also had a brain tumour in 2011, walked the first section of the Pennine Way in 2012 to raise money for Headway UK. That’ll be the Headway UK which employed someone whom I know as a manager. He left after a few months because he was rather unhappy about what Headway UK were up to… In 2012, Opperman walked 280 miles from Sheffield to Scotland raising £2,500 for the Great North Air Ambulance.

I presume that Guy Opperman’s view on Health Policy can be summed up by the usual: ‘Ah the doctors they were wonderful’.

Opperman was a Director of his family engineering business until 2009. He is a supporter of Middlesborough Football Club. 

In October 2012, Opperman had his first book published, Doing Time, an examination of the prison service and offender rehabilitation in the UK. In it he offers a consideration of re-offending, prisoner training, drug rehabilitation, prison management and payment by results in the prison system. I haven’t read ‘Doing Time’, but I guess that it does not contain an analysis of the corruption in forensic psychiatry which is resulting in so many people who have experienced organised abuse ending up in prison.

Opperman is a member of the Advisory Board of the High Pay Centre and has co-authored an essay with Green Party MP Caroline Lucas and TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady entitled “Better Business: Moral Matters”. In the essay he contrasts community-focused businesses in his own Northumberland constituency with the lack of responsibility demonstrated by the banking sector. There are great swathes of the Community in the North East who, like great swathes of the Community in north Wales, are going to great lengths to conceal the shameful recent past – which is profoundly influencing the present – of their Community.

 

Hywel remains the Plaid MP for the constituency – now known as Arfon – but he very nearly lost the last election.

 

Wrexham.

Wrexham has been held continually by Labour since 1935, the only blip being in 1981 when Tom Ellis, the Labour MP, defected to the SDP. At the 1983 General Election, normal service was resumed and the Labour MP, John Marek, won the seat. I need to qualify my use of the phrase ‘normal service’ in this context. John Marek provided anything but normal service and later defected to the Tory Party, having created his own Party along the way, of which he was the only member. However Marek did all that after he became the AM for Wrexham. As an MP, John Marek was Labour.

Bryn Estyn was located just outside of Wrexham and was staffed by local thugs. Because of the scale of abuse at Bryn Estyn, it was well worth everybody’s while ignoring what was happening there, although it wasn’t a huge employer per se; it was more a case of the organisations running it – the Home Office until the beginning of the 1970s, then the DHSS until the mid-1970s and then Clwyd County Council. These organisations were huge employers and their reputations needed to be upheld. The abuse of boys at Bryn Estyn stretched back decades – almost certainly to when it was established as a Home Office Approved School in 1943 – but things really started swinging in the late 1960s/early 1970s when Dafydd and John Allen went into business. The arrival at Bryn Estyn of Matt Arnold as Headmaster and his friend and colleague in paedophilia Peter Howarth – they had both relocated from Axwell Park Approved School in Gateshead where they had operated a paedophile ring there – was the end for the boys at Bryn Estyn.

John Allen’s empire the Bryn Alyn Community was located just outside of Wrexham. It was a private enterprise which opened at the end of the 1960s, but housed kids in care who were funded by their local authorities. There were kids from north Wales at Bryn Alyn, but most of them were kids from metropolitan areas, such as the London Boroughs, the West Midlands, Manchester and the North East. Bryn Alyn soon became a huge enterprise. Kids were circulated around children’s homes in north Wales, as were staff and indeed the visiting abusers. By the late 1970s, a great many people had a vested interest in ensuring that events at Bryn Estyn and Bryn Alyn were kept very firmly under wraps. In Gwynedd, virtually everyone’s employment depended in some way on Dafydd and the gang; it was not quite as extreme in Wrexham, because Wrexham did have heavy industry which provided much employment. However that industry died during the 1970s and Wrexham was left in a very sorry state. It became notorious in north Wales for being – at least in the eyes of those who weren’t from Wrexham – a dump. There were massive socio-economic problems and the towns council estates, especially Queen’s Park, were infamous. Queen’s Park hosted riots and in 1985 its name was changed to Caia Park, but it was still an area where people would refuse to live even if quite desperate.

Wrexham was a very safe Labour seat until the late 1970s; I presume that the loss of the big Labour majorities will have been because of the severe economic problems faced by the town. The threat to Labour in Wrexham was always from the Tories or Liberals. Plaid fielded candidates but they trailed a long way behind, probably because of the very ‘English’ nature of the town; Wrexham is on the border and one very rarely hears Welsh spoken in the town.

Caernarfon was a safe seat with a consistently high turn out, always around 80%; Wrexham had much lower turn outs, usually about 55% but sometimes only around 45% or so.

From 1935 to 1955 the Labour MP for Wrexham was Robert Richards. Richards grew up in Montgomeryshire and studied at what became Aberystwyth University and then St John’s College, Cambridge. He lectured at Glasgow University, 2009-11, then moved to UNCW where he held the Chair in Economics until 1922. Richards entered the Commons as the Labour MP for Wrexham for the first time in 1922, but was later voted out and then back in again. Robert Richards died in office in 1955 at the age of 70.

In 1950, Richards had a majority of 32.35% (17,925) over the Conservative and National Liberal candidate. In 1951, Richards’s majority over the Conservative and National Liberal candidate was 26.67% (14,635).

At the 1955 by-election held after Richards’s death, Labour’s Idwal Jones won with a majority of 27% (10,926) over the Conservative and National Liberal candidate. James Idwal Jones was born in Rhosllannerchrugog, one of the few Welsh speaking villages in the Wrexham area. He was educated at  Ruabon Grammar School and at the Normal College, Bangor. Idwal Jones became a teacher in 1922 in Holt but then moved to positions in Glyn Ceiriog and Penycae ( in north east Wales, but further away from Wrexham).In 1938 Idwal Jones was appointed as Headmaster at Grango School in his home village of Rhosllannerchrugog.

Idwal will have been networked in with all those in education who spent years concealing organised abuse in north Wales.

Idwal first stood as a Labour Parliamentary candidate in 1951 for the West Denbighshire constituency, but was unsuccessful. After being elected for Wrexham in May 1955, Jones held the seat until he retired from the Commons at the 1970 General Election. He died at Ponciau, Wrexham in 1982, so he was around a long time to join in with the ‘How Very Dare You’ if people raised complaints about Gwynne, Dafydd and the gang.

Idwal Jones was the brother of Thomas William Jones aka Lord Maelor, Labour MP for Merioneth, 1951-66. Merioneth was a constituency in what is now south Gwynedd, which included Croesor, Llanfrothen and the surrounding area, domain of Sir Clough, Bertrand Russell and the local people who were rendered even more vulnerable to Gwynne and Dafydd after the appointment of the social worker who could illegally incarcerate them in their very own language of Heaven.

One of my favourite books is William Blake’s ‘The Marriage of Heaven and Hell’. Blake’s conception of Hell begins not as a place of punishment, but as a source of unrepressed, somewhat Dionysian energy, opposed to the authoritarian and regulated perception of Heaven. Blake’s purpose is to create what he called a “memorable fancy” in order to reveal the repressive nature of conventional morality and institutional religion.

Plate from Marriage of Heaven and Hell; Denbigh Is Unique’ – Dafydd, arguing against the closure of his proud institution circa 1994.

In the most famous part of the book, Blake reveals the Proverbs of Hell. One of which is ‘The Lust Of The Goat Is The Bounty Of God’. Saying this sort of thing got William Blake into a great deal of bother. My how things haven’t changed.

Thomas William Jones, Baron Maelor was born in Ponciau and educated at Ponciau School before becoming a coal miner at the nearby Bersham Colliery. He later attended the Normal College, Bangor and qualified as a teacher. During WWI, Lord Maelor was a conscientious objector, but was granted recognition only to serve in the Army as a  non-combatant. He received a six-month prison sentence by court-martial for refusing to obey orders, on grounds of conscience, which he served at Wormwood Scrubs; under the Home Office Scheme he was transferred to Knutsford Work Centre and then Princetown Work Centre in Dartmoor Prison. 

Jones was Labour MP for Merioneth, 1951-66. He was a poet and a member of the Gorsedd of the Bards, which provides a popular networking opportunity for Dafydd’s mates. Thomas Jones served as President of the International Eisteddford at Llangollen, which provides another networking opportunity for associates of the gang; Ronnie Waterhouse was President of the International Eisteddfod. See previous posts.

Lord Maelor died in an overnight fire at his home in Ponciau in Nov 1984. Which was when it was all kicking off in north Wales – Brown and me refusing to withdraw our complaint about Gwynne the lobotomist and being threatened by D.G.E. Wood et al; Mary Wynch fast heading towards the Master of the Rolls; and Alison Taylor given a formal warning by Gwynedd County Council, then reporting injuries to kids in care to the police, only to be told that her concerns were unjustified. At some point in 1984 George Thomas ended up in hospital because of an STI and there was a panic lest all became public. The Top Docs kept their mouths shut and Leo Abse told a pack of lies to the press as a cover story (see post ‘It Wasn’t On Our Radar’).

It was concluded that the fire which killed Lord Maelor was begun by a ‘smouldering cigarette’. No evidence for this, just the observation that Lord Maelor was a heavy smoker. The comedian Viv Stanshall, someone else who could have named a few names, also went up in smoke because of a presumed cigarette, in Viv’s case as a result of ‘smoking in bed’. Viv Stanshall died in March 1995, while Nicola Davies QC was reviewing the North Wales Police paperwork – most of which was found to be missing – in order to decide whether an Inquiry should be held into the abuse of kids in north Wales. By 1995 Ronnie Waterhouse had already altered his retirement plans and was on his tour of Wales, dining and staying over with many of the people who’s failures/collusion led to en masse abuse in north Wales/Cheshire. Not that Ronnie knew that he would be Chairing any Inquiry of course…

It may be that it is just about possible to accidentally start a fire big enough to kill one with a lit fag if one carefully drops it into a pile of highly inflammable material. But otherwise it is very difficult. I have shared houses with very heavy smokers – no-one beats Empowered Service Users for heavy smoking – and they certainly burn things but they do not start fires. What happens, even when Smoking In Bed While Tanked Up With Drugs, is that the fag drops onto the bedding and burns a small hole. That is it. I watched this at close quarters for years. It is incredibly annoying because there’s small holes in all the bedding, but it absolutely does not start an inferno from which there is no escape. Cigarettes are not chip pans on fire which have had water thrown over them.

There was a TV advert when I was a teenager which Warned Against The Dangers Of Fires Started By Ciggies. It featured an elderly man with a northern accent coming in at the end of his graft, sitting in his chair and saying ‘Ee it’s been a good day’, as he drops off to sleep, dropping his fag onto the carpet which catches fire and then engulfs him in flames as he slumbers soundly throughout it all. It’s nearly as unlikely as Dewi Pritchard Jones’s explanation for Merfyn the Croesor social worker’s death. That advert was screened at the time of the panic over all those second homes going up in flames in north Wales. Cigarettes or Welsh Nash? Neither, most of it was the trafficking gang and fuckwittery on the part of the security services.

I only know of one example where a discarded lit dog end did start a fire. It was in the drought of 1976 and an old boy in Somerset chucked his lit cigarette butt into a very, very dry hedge. It smouldered away happily as he went off home and turned into a fire a la gorse fires in hot weather and the hedge went up. It was impressive, but even that burnt itself out, it didn’t require the fire brigade. How do I know this? Because it was my grandpa who set that hedge on fire. Not my Tory grandpa who hated Edward du Cann and Tom King, but my other grandpa. My grandmother was appalled at such vandalism and we all were told to keep the identity of the culprit a secret. So if anyone wants to know who was responsible for that blackened hedge in Otterhampton in 1976 it was Grandpa Ford.

I do not believe that these witnesses to the wrongdoing of Dafydd et al who combusted at crucial times had made the sort of mistake that Grandpa Ford did. Hedges and droughts were not involved, people don’t just go up in flames when they’re smoking a fag. Although it would be very convenient for some serious criminals who murdered five witnesses with a firebomb in April 1992 if they did.

 

I’ll take a bit of time to look at the Merioneth constituency at this point, because it did include what later became the tinderbox of the Croeser/Llanfrothen area and Bertrand Russell’s domain.

Between 1852-68, Merioneth was held by the Tories. William Watkin Edward Wynne, (MP, 1852-65) was a landowner and an antiquarian. He was born in Denbighshire, went to Westminster School and Jesus College, Oxford. William Wynne served as High Sheriff of Merionethshire in 1867 and became constable of Harlech Castle in 1874. 

The 1859 General Election was characterised by allegations of coercion against tenant farmers who supported the Liberal challenger David Williams. In 1865, William Wynne’s son William Robert Maurice Wynne, W.R.M. Wynne, succeeded him as the Conservative candidate. The Liberal press in North Wales was optimistic that the Liberals would capture the seat on this occasion and advised Wynne to withdraw. However, the Liberal campaign lacked organisation and very few public meetings were held. W.R.M. Wynne held the seat with a slightly reduced majority, and this has been attributed by the historian Ieuan Gwynedd Jones to ‘a sense of terror’ that had struck the mainly Nonconformist tenant farmers.

In 1868, following the extension of the franchise, some Conservative supporting newspapers believed that the 1867 Reform Act – the Second Reform Act – would actually benefit the Conservatives, especially after a revision of the electoral register resulted in the removal of a large number of electors in the Liberal stronghold of Ffestiniog. Eventually, however, Wynne withdrew rather than face another contest which he was likely to lose.

W.R.M. Wynne made a notable contribution to the cultural life of Wales by donating the Peniarth Manuscripts to the National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth.

Following his withdrawal from Parliamentary life, Wynne remained very active within local government. He served as High Sheriff of Merionethshire in 1886 and was Lord Lieutenant of Merionethshire from 1891 until his death. Wynne served as Chairman of the Merionethshire Quarter Sessions, was also a magistrate for Montgomeryshire and Carnarvonshire and served as constable of Harlech Castle. He was also a member of Merionethshire County Council from its formation in 1889 until his death, one of comparatively few Conservative members.

Wynne held extensive estates, totaling over 9,000 acres, primarily in Merionethshire. Although unable to speak Welsh fluently he was said to be on good terms with his tenantry. Some farms on the estate were said, at the time of Wynne’s death, to have been held for forty years without an increase in rent.

Wynne died at Buckingham Gate, London, on 5 February 1909. He was buried in the family vault at Llanegryn and the Dean of Bangor officiated at the funeral service. Tenants from the estate officiated as bearers at the funeral. In a mark of respect for Wynne, the then Liberal MP for Merionethshire, Osmond Williams, cancelled all political engagements in the constituency in the week following his death.

From 1868 until Lord Maelor was elected in 1951, Merioneth was held by the Liberal Party. The Liberal MPs who held the seat were famous names in the history of Wales: David Williams, Samuel Holland, Henry Robertson, T.E. Ellis, Osmond Williams, Henry Hadyn Jones and Emrys Roberts.

 

David Williams was born on the Llyn Peninsula. His younger sister Margaret was married to the notable Welsh preacher, John Breese. Williams stood unsuccessfully as Liberal candidate for Merioneth in 1859 and 1865 before being elected in 1868.

Williams suffered from ill health throughout his time as MP and only attended the Commons to vote on one occasion, for the passing of the Irish Church Disestablishment Bill. Williams died in December 1869 and was succeeded, after a by-election, by Samuel Holland.

David Williams’s eldest son Sir Osmond Williams also represented the seat, 1900-10. David Williams’s youngest son was the noted Top Doctor, Leonard Llewellyn Bulkeley Williams and his youngest daughter Alice Williams was a painter, bard and welfare worker. Alice was the Chair of one of the first British branches of the Women’s Institute at Penrhyndeudreaeth. She died in Chelsea in 1957.

Samuel Holland succeeded David Williams as the MP for Merioneth. Samuel was the son of Samuel, a Liverpool merchant and was born in Liverpool. He was educated in England and Germany and joined his father’s company as an office boy. At eighteen Samuel Holland was made manager of the Rhiwbryfdir quarry near Blaenau Ffestiniog and there conceived the railway from Blaenau Ffestiniog to Porthmadog, then known as Port Madoc.

Holland was appointed High Sheriff of Merionethshire for 1862.

In 1875 Holland was active in setting up the Dr Williams’s School in Dolgellau. He became the first Chairman of the school’s Board of Governors.

 

In 1885 Samuel Holland was succeeded as MP by Henry Robertson. Henry Robertson was a Scottish mining engineer, industrialist and a prolific railway builder; he built railways across north Wales, to transport the products of his industrial concerns. After receiving an offer from a Scottish bank to invest in the North Wales mineral district in 1842, Robertson purchased Brymbo Iron Works and under him it became Brymbo Steelworks, Wrexham. Robertson was co-founder of Beyer-Peacock, a locomotive manufacturer. His son Sir Henry Beyer Robertson was knighted by Queen Victoria for the achievements of his father.

Henry Robertson also served as Liberal MP for Shrewsbury, 1862-65. He resigned his Merioneth seat as a result of his opposition to Gladstone’s Home Rule Bill.

Robertson’s wife was the daughter of a London solicitor. His homes were: 1851: Richmond Place, Chester; 1861: St Mary’s Court, Shrewsbury. In the 1860s, he also bought a large estate in Llandderfel, near Bala, Gwynedd. 1871, 1881: 13, Lancaster Gate, Paddington, London (at the time of the 1871 Census, Robertson was an MP sitting at Westminster). In 1871, he built Pale Hall in Llandderfel, which became his country seat.

 

T.E. Ellis, Tom Ellis, succeeded Henry Robertson as Liberal MP for Merioneth in 1886. Ellis was the leader of Cymru Fydd, a movement aimed at gaining home rule for Wales. He was born near Bala, the son of a tenant farmer. Ellis attended Bala School, where his fellow pupils included Sir O.M Edwards. Owen Morgan Edwards is considered by some to be a hero of Welsh cultural and national life. O.M. Edwards was an historian and educationalist and served as a schools inspector. He was one of a network of people who became very influential in Wales and he wrote prolifically. O.M. Edwards’s son, Ifan ab Owen Edwards, is best known for founding the Urdd Gobaith Cymru (‘Welsh League of Youth’). Both father and son had numerous links with the University of Wales, Welsh literature, poetry and political activism. There is a statue to both of them at Llanuwchllyn, near Bala. See previous posts for details of their extensive network.

 

T.E. Ellis progressed onto what is now Aberystwyth University and then to New College Oxford. On leaving Oxford, Ellis briefly went into journalism and also acted as a private tutor to the son of a South Wales shipping magnate. He then became Private Secretary to Liberal MP, John Brunner. 

After being elected as Liberal MP for Merioneth, Ellis became a spokesman for Welsh concerns and in 1890 in Bala called for a Welsh legislative assembly. Ellis co-operated closely with David Lloyd George and played a major role in the campaign for Welsh disestablishment. When Ellis became a Whip in Gladstone’s Gov’t, he withdrew from Cymru Fydd and the leadership was taken over by Lloyd George and Herbert Lewis (the MP for Flint Boroughs). Ellis became an admirer of Cecil Rhodes, whom he met in Cape Colony.

This is the statue of T.E. Ellis on the main shopping street in Bala:

Will Oxford University Remove Cecil Rhodes Statue?

 

Tom Ellis’s son was the academic Thomas Iorwerth Ellis. Thomas Ellis went to Westminster School and studied at Aberystwyth University and Jesus College, Oxford. He taught at Cardiff School for Boys and then at what became Swansea University. Thomas Ellis was Headmaster of Rhyl County School, 1930-40. In the 1940s he lectured at what became Lampeter and Aberystwyth Universities. Ellis helped to found the New Wales Union in 1941 and was Secretary for 25 years. He served as warden of the Guild of Graduates of the University of Wales for six years and as High Sheriff of Cardiganshire, 1944-45. Ellis was also a member of the Court and Council of the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth and of the National Library of Wales and served as a member of the Governing Body, Representative Body and College of Episcopal Electors of the Church in Wales. He died on 20 April 1970. Ellis moved among all those who kept the lid on Gwynne, Dafydd and the gang. Ellis’s wife Mari was a writer and women’s rights activist. Mari was a graduate of UCNW and later worked at the National Library of Wales.

The MP for Merioneth, 1899-1900, was Sir O.M. Edwards, who was elected unopposed. Edwards did not enjoy Parliamentary life and left the House after one year.

 

Sir Osmond Williams was elected unopposed in 1900 and held Merioneth until 1910. Sir Osmond was the son of David Williams and the brother of Alice. He was born in Ardudwy and was educated at Eton. Osmond married Frances, daughter of John Whitehead Greaves, who was part of the slate industry in north Wales. Greaves worked existing slate deposits in partnership with other entrepreneurs, initially at Glynrhonwy but adding other sites. He used the income this to prospect for new veins which he could exploit exclusively. Greaves opened the Llechwedd Quarry in 1846. His slate won a Class 1 Prize Medal at the Great Exhibition of 1851 and orders flowed in, including a contract to supply Kensington Palace.

 

Sir Henry Haydn Jones succeeded Sir Osmond as MP and retained the seat until 1945, for some of the time unopposed. Sir Henry was born in Ruthin, the son of Joseph David Jones, a schoolmaster in the town and a Welsh musician and composer. After the early death of his father, Haydn Jones was brought up by uncles at Towyn (now Tywyn) where he was educated at the Board School & Academy. In 1903 he married Barbara, the daughter of Lewis D. Jones, a Welsh-born Chicago ironmonger and quarry owner.

In 1889 Haydn Jones was elected as one of the first members of Merionethshire County Council, representing the Towyn Urban District. A year later he was the Chair of the Council. He was eventually elected an Alderman.

In 1909 the Bryn Eglwys slate quarry, the Abergynolwyn estate and village and Talyllyn Railway came up for sale. Aware of the distress which would be caused by permanent closure of the quarry, Sir Haydn bought the lot himself in 1911 for £5250 and became the sole owner of what became the Abergynolwyn Slate and Slab Company. In 1935 he extended his quarry ownership, leasing the Aberllefenni Slate Quarry in the neighbouring Corris district.

The quarrying and slate business did well until the early 1920s when demand fell and the Bryn Eglwys quarry was only kept open by pillaring the easy to obtain slate rather than by digging out new underground chambers. At times there was a three-day week, but the quarry soldiered on until 1941 when Sir Haydn’s lease expired. He continued on a yearly lease until 1946 when a roof fall caused by the continued pillaring closed the quarry for good.

By buying Bryn Eglwys, Haydn Jones had become effectively owner of the Talyllyn Railway built to carry slate from the quarry to Tywyn. After the quarry collapse and closure in 1946, the railway had little reason to continue operating. Haydn Jones declared that the railway would remain open while he remained alive and it continued to run until 1950. After his death his widow reached an arrangement with L.T.C. Rolt and his associates allowing them to lease the railway. Today the railway operates as a tourist attraction.

In 1945 Emrys Roberts was elected for Merioneth and held the seat until 1951. Emrys Roberts was born at Caernarfon and educated at Caernarfon Grammar School, at the now Abersytwyth University where he graduated in law and then Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, followed by the Graduate Institute of International Studies in Geneva. Emrys served in the RAF during WWII, reaching the rank of Squadron Leader. He was called to the bar at Gray’s Inn in 1944. Sir William Mars-Jones, Ronnie Waterhouse’s mate and Dafydd’s umbrella for many years, was a member of Gray’s Inn.

Roberts was sometime Chairman of the Welsh Liberal Party. He was Chairman of the Development Board for Rural Wales, 1977-81 and a member of a large number of other public bodies in Wales including being Chairman of the Eisteddfod Council. He was active in the Parliament for Wales Campaign launched in 1950, Chaired by Lady Megan Lloyd George but by the time the campaign got into top gear both he and Lady Megan had lost their Parliamentary seats. So the other paedophiles’ friends from a previous era, such as Goronwy Roberts, had to take over.

In 1950, Emrys Roberts increased his majority after a campaign invigorated by a meeting addressed by the veteran Liberal, Lord Samuel.

The Plaid Cymru candidate in Merioneth for a number of elections in the 1950s and 60s was Gwynfor Evans. Gwynfor Evans was the first person to be elected as a Plaid MP, for Carmarthen in 1966. Gwynfor knew about the organised abuse in Wales and when he stood as the Plaid candidate for Merioneth he will have known about the activities of Bertrand Russell and some of the summer visitors to Croeser, as well as the rather high price local people paid if they Crossed Gwynne and Dafydd’s Path.

 

The immediate post-war period continued to be difficult for the Liberal Party in terms of political positioning. Together with Lady Megan Lloyd George and Edgar Granville, Emrys Roberts was one of a group of MPs determined to stand up against what they saw as the Party’s drift to the Right under the leadership of Clement Davies and to save its Radical soul. In 1950, Emrys Roberts criticised Davies saying that the party was being badly led and that Davies should be consulting the Deputy Leader (Lady Megan) rather than the Chief Whip on matters of policy in the first instance. As a reward for the pro-Labour leanings of Emrys and Lady Megan (more of which in a minute) and support of the Labour Gov’t in Parliamentary votes, the Conservatives decided to renew their opposition against Lady Megan in Anglesey and Emrys Roberts in Merioneth and their intervention was a critical factor in the loss of these two long-standing Liberal seats. The Conservatives declined to stand candidates in the constituencies held by Clement Davies, Roderic Bowen and Rhys Hopkin Morris, who had the reputation of being more right-wing, all of whom held their seats. After the 1951 General Election, a number of leading Radicals gave up on the Liberal Party with Lady Megan and Edgar Granville defecting to Labour, followed soon after by other former MPs Dingle Foot – Michael Foot’s brother – and Wilfrid Roberts. Dingle Foot QC was Solicitor General in Harold Wilson’s Gov’t, which will have involved concealing much wrongdoing, including that in north Wales.

Emrys Roberts did not join the Labour Party but he largely withdrew from up active politics and devoted himself to a business career. He later became the Director of the Branded Textiles Group. However he did not lose his interest in politics. In 1982 at the height of the difficulties afflicting the Liberal/SDP Alliance over seats negotiations and the dip in support for the Alliance in the polls, Emrys Roberts wrote to The Times proposing that the Alliance parties should have a single, joint, leader for the next general election and that there should be a merger of the parties once the election was over. He reminded readers that in 1951 he and Lady Megan Lloyd George had entered into talks with Mandy’s granddad Herbert Morrison, proposing a working relationship between the Labour Gov’t, with its majority of eight and the Liberal Party which had nine MPs. According to Emrys Roberts, Morrison was well disposed to the idea but Attlee’s decision to dissolve Parliament and call the Oct 1951 General Election put an end to it. Roberts added that the Lib-Lab Pact concluded between David Steel and Jim Callaghan in 1977-78 achieved what he and Lady Megan had been trying to do in 1951.

 

Readers will have noticed that I don’t have to indulge my interest in an earlier geological era for long before I arrive in the sphere of latter day paedophiles’ friends. Emrys Roberts began his life at the knee of the Ancients but well before he died, he was cheek by jowl with Jeremy Thorpe, Cyril Smith, Clement Freud, Dr Death et al. These complete idiots were part of the mass of rocks which could not be shifted when some people tried to get to the bottom of the most dreadful abuse of vulnerable people and associated serious crime in the 1980s and 90s. People died, there were corpses turning up all over north Wales. I am not that old but I knew some of those people; the kids who suffered so terribly in the children’s homes of north Wales were my age. We’re not talking orphanages for Victorian waifs here, we’re talking about people who were kids in the 1970s and young adults in the 1980s. Some of the old crocks who did it are still alive and snuggling down in their comfy chairs in villages across north Wales with the proverbial paned and a slice of bara brith, relying upon the network to get their grandchildren a place at medical school or a job as a social worker. They are not harmless old Taids and Nains, these were vicious bastards who ensured that the most terrible suffering continued because they were making a lot of money out of other old gits who wanted to have sex with children.

Ooh here’s Taid on the dresser, everyone knew Taid:

If anyone disagreed with Taid they were exterminated…

From 1968-1977, Emrys Roberts was Chairman of the Mid-Wales Development Corporation and then Chairman of the Development Board for Rural Wales from 1977–1981. Roberts was a member of the WDA, 1977-81 – who’s reputation for corruption remains unsurpassed to this day (see previous posts) and Director of the Development Corporation of Wales, 1978–81.

The committees upon which Emrys Roberts sat and his interests are reflected in his correspondence and papers, which are deposited in the National Library of Wales. They include those relating to the National Eisteddfod, 1959–76; the Development Board for Rural Wales, 1973–81; and Wales and West North Television. Emrys Roberts was also Vice-President of the Honourable Society of Cymmrodorion, which seems to be simply a group of paedophiles’ friends who give medals to each other.

It would be entertaining to chug over to the National Library if I was still near Aberystwyth and take a look at Emrys’s papers to see if I could spot any mention of the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. However I know from previous digging that whereas people were more than happy to drop Dafydd’s name at every opportunity until the mid-1970s, after that he became so embarrassing that no-one would mention him. But they wouldn’t stop his wrongdoing and they didn’t actually tell him to take a running jump when he rang them up/dropped in on them/wrote to them. Instead they took orders from him, having been so deeply compromised as a result of the history that I have been blogging about. This was a relatively small, incestuous collection of silly, vain, pompous people who landed Wales deep in a slurry pit as a result of their grandiose ambitions and corruption.

Emrys Roberts died in October 1990. So he lasted long enough to give Dafydd et al a helping hand right up until the North Wales Police investigation into the possible presence of the paedophile ring was launched.

The combusting Lord Maelor held Merioneth between 1951 and 1966 and faced a number of challenges from Gwynfor Evans as Plaid candidate. In 1964 the Plaid candidate was Elystan Morgan. Elystan Morgan is yet another lawyer who is an Aber graduate who has willingly served Dafydd and the gang throughout his life. Elystan Morgan is nothing if not persistent. He stood as the Plaid candidate for Wrexham twice in 1955 and again in 1959 and after having no luck in Merioneth in 1964, joined the Labour Party and in 1966 was elected as MP for Cardiganshire. He served as a Minister in the Home Office in Wilson’s Gov’t. Elystan Morgan is a member of Gray’s Inn along with the best of Dafydd’s mates. He was Chairman of the Welsh Parliamentary Labour Party, 1971-74. After losing his seat in Feb 1974, Elystan concentrated on his legal career but in 1979 Elystan was back in action, trying to become the Labour MP for Anglesey. Elystan Morgan was given a peerage in 1981, becoming Lord Elystan-Morgan. He was a recorder, 1983-87 and a Circuit judge, 1987-2003. Elystan Morgan was President of Aberystwyth University, 1997-2007. See previous posts for more gen on Elystan Morgan.

 

At the 1966 General Election, Merioneth was won by Labour’s William Edwards, who retained the seat until Feb 1974. William Henry Edwards, Will Edwards, was a lawyer who was born in Amlwch, Anglesey. His father was a tenant farmer and his mother was a seamstress. Will Edwards was educated at the local Grammar School and at Sir Thomas Jones’ Comprehensive School. He read Law at  Liverpool University and was of a similar vintage to those other two well known alumni of Liverpool University, Dafydd and Lucille. Will then studied at the London College of Law. He became a solicitor in Bala and visiting lecturer at Liverpool College of Commerce.

Edwards contested West Flintshire in the 1964 General Election. After his election for Merioneth in 1996, he became PPS to Secretary of State for Wales, the Windbag’s mate Lord Cledwyn. Will Edwards became a front-bench spokesman on Welsh affairs, in a team headed by the molester George Thomas, but he was sacked by Harold Wilson in 1972 over his support for entry into the EEC. Edwards lost his seat in the Feb 1974 General Election to Plaid’s Dafydd Elis Thomas and was unable to regain the seat in the October 1974 General Election.

Will Edwards was then appointed to lead Labour’s campaign in Wales for a “yes” vote in the referendum to remain in the EEC. In 1981, he was selected to fight Ynys Mon (Anglesey), but withdrew in March 1983, shortly before that year’s General Election, in protest at Labour’s policies of withdrawal from the EEC, unilateral nuclear disarmament and closure of US military bases in the UK.

Will Edwards was a member of the Historic Buildings Council for Wales, 1971-76 and began to edit The Solicitor’s Diary for Waterlow’s in 1973. In 1987, a Law Society tribunal struck him off the roll of solicitors for infringing the solicitors’ accounts rules and improper use of clients’ funds. In the light of how solicitors in north Wales were conducting themselves at the time, Will Edwards must have either been very bad indeed or the other paedophiles’ friends turned on him for some reason.

In later life, Will Edwards suffered from diabetes and heart disease. He died in the Wrexham Maelor Hospital in 2007. Will wasn’t refused NHS treatment on the grounds that he Hadn’t Taken Responsibility then. He lived long enough to contribute to the efforts to ensure that matters Dafydd and the trafficking ring remained safely buried.

 

When Will died, an obituary was published in ‘The Guardian’ which painted an interesting portrait of Will who nicked his clients’ money and concealed a paedophile gang. Here are the highlights:

An engaging and talented man… He got into trouble for taking political life seriously, but provoked greater difficulties by not taking it seriously enough…Edwards…was a young solicitor of considerable charm…He became well known in Welsh politics, while his energetic social life made him a popular figure with colleagues and journalists who did not think that Westminster duties were incompatible with having a good time. That attitude raised fewer eyebrows then than perhaps it would today, but combined with a reluctance to suck up to his political superiors meant Edwards was looked on with some suspicion…He was also passionately pro-Europe…There were other problems closer to home. In Welsh-speaking rural Wales, MPs have traditionally been people of a respectable, moderately radical character…But in an area of very conservative social views, Edwards’ displays of affluence – like the personalised car number plates – were considered inappropriate. Disparaging comments were made…there was more than a bit of swagger as he walked down the main street of Bala. Party colleagues reported indications that he was not being assiduous enough.

It would be wrong to suggest that Edwards did not care about his constituents. He argued passionately on their behalf on specific issues, but it was difficult to avoid the impression that he found the details of political life less than wholly absorbing. That played into the hands of a politician who had been enthusiastically canvassing Merioneth… Plaid Cymru’s Dafydd Elis Thomas… Later in the 80s, financial transgressions got him struck off as a solicitor by the Law Society. While still relatively young, he was hit by ill-health, including diabetes and, later, heart disease. It was a sad, premature decline and a contrast to the days when his verve and sense of mischief were at everyone’s service.’

Everyone is rude about Dafydd El shamelessly toadying to Royals, but I don’t think that he has yet been caught stealing other people’s money only to be excused by having the qualities of ‘verve and a sense of mischief’.

Who was the obituarist who considered that helping yourself to your clients’ dosh is just part of life’s rich tapestry and it most post unreasonable of the constituents not to vote for an MP who robbed them, being a bunch of old stick in the muds in Bala? It was the late Patrick Hannan, the Welsh journo and TV/radio broadcaster. Hannan went to school with Sir Anthony Hopkins and then to Aberystwyth University. He worked on the ‘Western Mail’ in the 1960s and joined BBC Wales in 1970. Hannan presented ‘Wales Today’ and then spent 13 years as the BBC’s political correspondent in Wales and had a series on BBC Radio Wales. He broadcast on Radio 4 with his colleague Peter Stead and produced documentary programmes for BBC 2, BBC Wales and HTV. Hannan married Menna Richards, who became Director of BBC Wales. He died in 2009. One of Hannan’s books was published by Gomer Press. Hannan was the son of a Top Doctor in south Wales.

A few observations: Sir Anthony Hopkins came over all Welsh at about the time of the Waterhouse Report and its aftermath. He waxed lyrical about being Welsh and there was much media hype as to Sir Anthony’s Welshness and his work with the Snowdonia Society and other Welsh Things. Sir Anthony’s burst of patriotism didn’t last long. Once the PR job was done, he went to live in the US – where he had spent many years previously – and even took US citizenship. See previous posts.

Among the frantic re-creating of Wales’s image during the 1990s and the early years of the new millennium when there was so much adverse publicity about child abuse in north Wales and even a possible VIP paedophile ring, many Old Favourites written by north Wales writers from yesteryear were republished, particularly by Kate Roberts. Kate Roberts grew up in Caernarfonshire, worked as a school teacher for a while and then married and went to live in Denbigh, where she spent the rest of her life. She and her husband were involved with Plaid and Welsh language campaigning and they owned a small publishing house in Denbigh. It was that publisher, Gwasg Gee, which republished many of Kate’s works and associated literature, as well as Gomer Press. See post ‘Feet In Chains’.

Menna Richards attended the funeral of John Owen, a schoolteacher and scriptwriter for Welsh language TV, who was found dead in 2001, days before he was due to stand trial for a series of sex offences against children. When John Owen was initially charged there was a great deal of How Very Dare You and Standing By Him. After his death, as more and more former pupils and their relatives came forward and said that John had abused them, they had complained but nothing had been done, gradually the How Very Dare You turned into admissions of Er Yes, We Knew. It seemed that a great many people knew about John Owen and many, many complaints had been made about him over decades

Hannan and Menna will of course Not Have Known About Jimmy Savile…

Hannan’s own obits were full of comments about the fearless reporter who was not afraid to take on the powerful. Yet Hannan and Menna couldn’t say one word about a gang of old paedophiles in north Wales who were murdering witnesses.

  • One of Hannan’s own books was A Useful Fiction: Adventures in British Democracy (2009).

 

In the General Election of 1970 the Plaid candidate for Merioneth was Dafydd Wigley. He polled very well, but not enough to topple Emrys.

Dafydd El held Merioneth until 1983, when the seat disappeared in a reorganisation. In 1979, Dafydd El’s nearest rival was, incredibly enough for that constituency at that time, the Conservative candidate Robert Harvey. Robert Harvey was educated at Eton and Christ Church, Oxford. He was foreign affairs leader writer for the Torygraph, 1987-1991 and assistant editor of ‘The Economist’, 1981-1983.

Harvey first stood for Parliament, unsuccessfully, at Caernarfon in Oct 1974, where he was beaten by Wigley. In the Conservative landslide of 1983, Harvey was elected as the MP for Clwyd South West, a constituency that only existed between 1983-97.  It was created from the constituencies of Denbigh, Wrexham and Merioneth and was not a safe seat, it was always up for grabs. Harvey became a member of the Commons Foreign Affairs Committee. He served for one term before his defeat at the 1987 General Election by Labour’s Martyn Jones.  

Clwyd South West was never fought by anyone who was going to say a word about the trafficking gang, although one wonders why an Eton educated Torygraph journo would want to become an MP in north Wales, either in Gwynedd or Clwyd.

Sir Peter Morrison was a personal friend of Thatch and was elected as the Tory MP for Chester in Feb 1974. Morrison’s brother Charles was a Tory MP and Charles was a big fan of Ted Heath. Peter Morrison’s father, Lord Margadale, had been a Tory politician. The Morrisons were a landed family with numerous members of their extended family also active in Tory politics. Peter Morrison abused kids in north Wales, including some at Bryn Estyn.

 

 

To return to events at the constituency of Wrexham in elections. Some familiar faces were circulating. The Plaid candidate for Wrexham in 1955 was Elystan Morgan.

In 1959, Labour’s Idwal Jones had a majority of 24.07% (12,957) over the Conservative and National Liberal candidate. Elystan stood for Plaid again.

In 1964, Idwal had a majority of 25.27% (13,238) over the Conservative and National Liberal candidate. The Plaid candidate was John Richard Thomas.

In 1966, Idwal had a majority of 34.01% (17,443) over the Conservative candidate.

Elystan didn’t rear his head in Wrexham after 1964, because he had of course joined the Labour Party which led to him being elected in Cardigan.

 

In 1970, Tom Ellis was the Labour candidate for Wrexham and won the seat with a majority of 28.23% (15,440) over the Conservative candidate. Ellis was born in Rhosllanennerchrugog and was educated at Ruabon Grammar School. In 1957 he became manager of the nearby Bersham Colliery. Ellis undertook further studies at the Universities of Wales and Nottingham. He was a President of Wrexham Fabian Society.

Ellis first stood for Parliament without success in Flint West in 1966. He was elected for Wrexham in 1970, and re-elected in Feb 1974, Oct 1974 and May 1979. Ellis also served as an indirectly elected MEP, 1975-1979.

Ellis was one of the core handful of Woy-esque Labour MPs who were prepared to leave the Labour Party without the Gang of Three of Dr Death, Bill Rodgers and Shirl. Ellis contemplated joining the Liberals. In 1981, Ellis became one of the founding members of the SDP. Ellis was one of three Welsh MPs to join the new Party and he was elected to serve as the President of Welsh Social Democrats. As a result of boundary changes, Ellis did not contest Wrexham in 1983, instead he stood in the new constituency of Clwyd South West, finishing second to the Tory Robert Harvey. Ellis stood again in Clwyd South West in 1987, finishing third. After the merger of the SDP and the Liberals, Ellis stood for the then Social and Liberal Democrats at the 1989 Pontypridd by-election.

In Feb 1974, Tom Ellis had a majority of 22.32% (13,083) over the Conservative candidate. In Oct 1974, Ellis had a majority of 28.96% (16,366) over his nearest rival which was then the Liberal candidate. In 1979, Tom had a majority of 19.66% (12,149) over the Conservative candidate.

In 1983, John Marek won the seat for Labour, with a majority of 0.9% (424) over the Conservative candidate Cynthia Kay Wood. John Marek held Wrexham for Labour until 2001. Marek stood down after he was elected to represent Wrexham in the National Assembly of Wales in 1999. This was initially for the Labour Party, but he was deselected in 2003 and formed Forward Wales, for whom he was re-elected. In 2004, Ron Davies of the Moments of Madness and Looking for Badgers resigned from the Labour Party, joined Forward Wales, subsequently standing unsuccessfully as a candidate. Marek was defeated at the 2007 election.

Marek lectured in maths at Aberystwyth before becoming an MP. He was elected a member of Ceredigion District Council in 1979 and served until 1983; he was Chair of its finance sub-committee, 1982-83.

Marek joined the Assembly in 1999 and caused much havoc. In 2000, Marek was elected as Deputy Presiding Officer against the candidate preferred by the Labour leadership. This move and his frequent criticisms of the Labour-led Wrexham County Borough led to his deselection as the Labour Party’s candidate for the National Assembly elections of 1 May 2003. Marek then stood as a candidate for the John Marek Independent Party and defeated the official Labour Party candidate, Lesley Griffiths, a former secretary of his and the most loyal paedophiles’ friend. It was later that year Marek formed Forward Wales. He ran for re-election in the 2007 Welsh Assembly election, but was defeated by Lesley Griffiths. On 29 March 2010, Marek joined the Tory Party and he was later confirmed as the Party’s candidate for the 2011 Welsh Assembly election, where he again came second to Griffiths in the Wrexham constituency.

In 2006 Marek was appointed a Vice President of Wrexham A.F.C. by new owners Nev Dickens and Geoff Moss and remained a Vice President until the club passed into the ownership of the Wrexham Supporters Trust.

Marek’s majority over the Conservative candidate in 1987 was 8.3% (4152). Owen Paterson was the Tory candidate for Wrexham in 1992; John Marek had a majority over Paterson of 13.1% (6716). Paterson subsequently became the Tory MP for North Shropshire in 1997, a seat which he currently retains. In 1997, Marek’s majority over the Conservative candidate was 32.3% (11,622).

 

Ian Lucas, a lawyer who grew up in Gateshead and went to New College, Oxford, won Wrexham for Labour in 2001, with a majority of 30.5% (9188) over the Conservative candidate. Ian remains Wrexham’s MP.

In 2005 and 2010, the Liberal candidate for Wrexham was Tom Rippeth, a Professor of Oceanography at Bangor University. Tom Rippeth and one of his friends moved into the house with whom I and other witnesses to the crimes of Dafydd and the gang used to share in 1987 and caused much grief and trouble as Dafydd’s war against us was underway. I have been told that Rippeth knew that I was someone who had been targeted by the gang back in 1987 and Rippeth found that he could do very nicely out of this. See previous posts.

2010 was a good year for unscrupulous bastards challenging Ian Lucas at the polls. The Plaid candidate that year was Arfon Jones, who as a police constable in the 1970s, chauffeured the senior officer Gordon Anglesea to the venues where Anglesea molested kids in care. Arfon is now the Police and Crime Commissioner for North Wales and has starred in many of my previous blog posts…

 

Denbigh.

The constituency of Denbigh existed between 1918 and 1983. During the years of Gwynne and Dafydd Denbigh didn’t enjoy the huge majorities enjoyed by Dafydd Wigley in Caernarfon, but for decades the sitting Tory MP proved impossible to unseat, although many of those we know and love tried their luck.

Sir Henry Morris-Jones was the MP for Denbigh, 1929-50. Morris-Jones was a Top Doctor who was born in Waunfawr, near Caernarfon. He was educated at Menai Bridge Grammar School, Anglesey and St. Mungo’s College of Medicine in Glasgow. In 1931 Morris-Jones married Leila Paget-Marsland, a widow. They were not blessed with children.

Morris-Jones qualified as a Top Doctor in 1906 from Glasgow, gaining a further licence for surgery from Edinburgh and was for twenty years a GP in Colwyn Bay. During the WWI, Morris-Jones served in the 2nd Battalion of the Worcestershire Regiment as a medical officer in France. He later served as Chairman of his division of the BMA and of the Colwyn Bay Medical Society.

Morris-Jones took an active part in the public life of the town of Colwyn Bay and the County of Denbigh. He was elected a member of Colwyn Bay Urban District Council, later becoming its Chairman. He was High Sheriff Designate of the County, 1929–30 and also served as a member of the County Council. Morris-Jones was also appointed a Deputy Lieutenant of Denbighshire and was a JP. 

At the 1929 General Election, Morris-Jones was nominated to be the candidate for Denbigh and on 4 April he was selected by the local party to stand in succession to the sitting MP, Ellis William Davies, who was resigning on grounds of ill-health. Morris-Jones had a straight fight against the Tory, Captain Alan Crosland Graham of Ruthin, the Political Private Secretary to Lord Balfour. The Liberal party improved its position nationally in 1929, but it did not make the breakthrough it had hoped for under the leadership of a reinvigorated Lloyd George. In this climate and without a Labour opponent in Denbigh, Morris-Jones was able to increase the Liberal majority from 1,421 to 8,189.

While in Parliament, Morris-Jones took a particular interest in public health and agriculture both nationally and as they affected Denbighshire. He was an honorary Treasurer of the Parliamentary Medical Group from time of election in 1929 and was later appointed as a member of the Committee of Trustees set up under the MPs Pensions Act.

In 1931 an economic crisis led to the formation of a National Liberal Gov’t led by Labour PM Ramsey MacDonald, initially supported by the Conservative and Liberal parties. A group of Liberal MPs were concerned to ensure that the National Government had a wide cross-party base and formed the Liberal National Party to support MacDonald’s administration. Morris-Jones joined this group and thereafter sat in the Commons as a Liberal National. At the 1931 General Election, Morris-Jones was unopposed in Denbigh. So on 16 October Morris-Jones retained his Parliamentary seat as one of 65 MPs returned unopposed.

In 1932, Morris-Jones was appointed an Assistant Government Whip and he held that post until 1935. From 1935 to 1937 he was a Lord Commissioner of the Treasury. In May 1937 when Neville Chamberlain succeeded Stanley Baldwin as PM, Morris-Jones was offered the position of Chief Whip to the Liberal National group after the formation of the new Government but preferred ‘for personal reasons’ to return to the backbenches.

As the prospect of another General Election approached, the Liberal Party policy of not opposing sitting Liberal National MPs came increasingly under threat. In Denbighshire there was a willingness to challenge Morris-Jones, who was seen more and more as a surrogate Tory. At a meeting of the Liberal Association on 24 October 1935, it was agreed to adopt John Cledwyn Davies, the Director of Education for Denbighshire and the Lloyd George Coalition Liberal MP for Denbigh from 1922-23. Morris-Jones refused to stand down and the two members of the liberal family fought each other in the General Election in November 1935. The Conservatives supported Morris-Jones and the intervention of a Labour candidate helped take votes away from Davies. Across the country the Liberal National vote remained steady and Morris-Jones held the seat with a majority of over 5,000.

For brief period during the WWII, commencing in February 1942, Morris-Jones decided to leave the Liberal Nationals. In July 1942 he was signatory to a motion which while praising the armed forces indicated a lack of confidence in the Government’s conduct of the war. It was later recorded that Morris-Jones had rejoined the official Liberals; however at the time Morris-Jones described himself as having become an Independent. In the end the political and electoral realities overcame the sense of Liberal family and Morris-Jones rejoined the Liberal Nationals in March 1943, presumably sensing or calculating it would be the safest way to enable him to continue as an MP.

In 1937 Morris-Jones was Honorary Treasurer and Honorary Secretary of the Reception Committee co-ordinating the Royal Visit to North Wales. As part of the coronation celebrations the King and Queen were to visit North Wales in July 1937. They were to open an extension to the National Library of Wales at Aber and and make a ceremonial visit to Caernarfon Castle. At this time Lloyd George was Constable of the Caernarfon Castle and Morris-Jones was involved in discussion and debate with him and others about the arrangements for the visit; some bad-tempered exchanges took place over the choice of music for the Royal programme which Lloyd George felt was not up to the dignity of the occasion.

In 1941-2, Morris-Jones served as Chairman of the Welsh Parliamentary Party. Liberal MPs from Wales had always regarded themselves as a separate Parliamentary entity, certainly from as early as 1886. They saw their role as promoting distinctly Welsh causes and being the party of Welsh nationalism. This role diminished with the decline of Liberalism in Wales during the 20th century and establishment of Plaid Cymru in 1925, but there remained a sentiment at Westminster that Welsh parliamentarians should meet together in the interests of their country.

Morris-Jones was also a member of the Gorsedd of the Bards. He also served as a member of the Governing Body of the Church in Wales, 1950-62.

At the 1945 General Election,  Morris-Jones faced official Liberal and Labour opposition in Denbigh but was supported as the Government candidate by the Conservatives. With the opposition split, he held on. Although he stood down as an MP at the 1950 General Election, Morris-Jones remained loyal to the Liberal Nationals, or National Liberal Party as it became known after 1948. He served as Vice Chairman of the Executive of the National Liberal Party in 1952 and the following year (1953–54) he went on to be Chairman.

The National Liberals again held Denbigh against split opposition in 1950, albeit with a reduced majority. It remained a National Liberal seat until 1959 when a Conservative candidate was put up, successfully retaining it. It then stayed Conservative until the constituency was abolished in 1983.

As a Top Doctor, Morris-Jones took a keen interest in the legislation to set up the NHS. He was not in favour, taking the side of the professional organisations in opposing measures to force doctors into the NHS. By 1948 he was much more closely aligned with the Conservatives and their thinking. That Morris-Jones was a man of traditional views in relation to medical matters can be deduced from his association with the campaign to prevent the sale of contraceptives from slot machines, as a ‘temptation to youth’. Dafydd hadn’t yet arrived at the North Wales Hospital when Morris-Jones was worrying about those slot machines.

In the late 1940s, Morris-Jones wrote to ‘The Times’ expressing his reservations about the creation of the NHS. A year after the introduction of the NHS, Morris-Jones was again writing to ‘The Times’ to highlight what he saw as the decline in status of the GP. He believed that there was evidence to show that after a year of the NHS there had been a deterioration in the art of medicine as practised by GPs, an expansion of their workload, an increase in bureaucracy, difficulties in seeing cases through and getting patients into hospitals.

My how Top Docs complaints haven’t changed.

Although Seriously Grim was de rigueur for asylums at the time, throughout the post-war years the North Wales Hospital seemed to have a reputation for being much grimmer than most. It will have originally been built to help poor wretches, but it certainly lost its way and I suspect that was the case during at least the latter years of Morris-Jones’s time as the MP for Denbigh.

In 1945, the Labour candidate who opposed Morris-Jones was none other than Sir William Mars-Jones, Ronnie Waterhouse’s colleague and friend. Mars-Jones came from a Denbighshire farming family and made it big as a lawyer and then a High Court judge in London. He retained close links with north Wales throughout his life and provided a very big umbrella for Dafydd and the gang throughout his life, assisted by the rest of the Mars-Jones’s in north Wales. See previous posts.

In 1950, after Morris-Jones stood down, Emlyn Garner Evans was elected as the National Liberal MP for Denbigh, having a 2.69% (1209) majority over Glyn Tegai Hughes, the Liberal candidate.

Emlyn Garner Evans was born in Llangollen and read law at Aber. He went onto Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, by which time he was already an active member of the Liberal Party. Evans was President of the Cambridge Union and of the Cambridge University Liberal Club. He stood as the Liberal Party candidate for the City of Chester in 1935 but did not win. In 1936 Evans spoke in a debate with Harold Wilson and in the same year he became President of the Union of University Liberal Societies and was elected to the Liberal Party Council.

Evans became Editor of The New Commonwealth Quarterly, a journal published by the New Commonwealth Society which studied international relations, in 1935. (Churchill was Chairman of the institute’s British section from 1936.) Evans also helped to found the World Youth Congress in 1936, and was elected President of its political section in 1936 and re-elected in 1938. On the outbreak of WWII Evans joined the RAF and served overseas in North Africa and Italy.

At the end of WWII Evans was adopted as Liberal candidate for Denbigh and unsuccessfully fought the seat at the 1945 General Election. He resumed his legal training and was called to the Bar at Gray’s Inn in 1946. William Mars-Jones was a member of Gray’s Inn. When a joint statement of principles of Liberals and Conservatives was published in a pamphlet called “Design for Freedom” in February 1947, Evans was one of the signatories. Although the full merger was not agreed, the Liberal Nationals were reorganised into the National Liberal Party later in 1947, and Evans joined.

When Morris-Jones announced his retirement Evans was selected as his replacement by the local National Liberal Association in April 1948; he then attended several local branches of the Conservative Association (with whom the National Liberals were in alliance) and committed himself to defeating the Labour Government. Evans was adopted as candidate in November 1949.

The election saw some confusion as the National Liberals claimed the official mantle of Liberalism. Evans faced a Liberal opponent and won the seat with a narrow majority of 1,209 over the Liberal candidate Glyn Tegai Hughes.

Glyn Tegai Hughes was a scholar and a literary critic. He was the son of a Welsh Methodist Minister and a Methodist preacher himself. Glyn Tegai will have known George Thomas, who was a very high profile Methodist. Glyn Tegai was educated at Newtown and Towyn County Grammar School, the Liverpool Institute and Manchester Grammar School. After WWII, he went to Corpus Christie College, Cambridge. Glyn Tegai served as President of Cambridge University Liberal Club and was Chairman of the Union of University Liberal Societies. In 1950 Hughes was a founding member of Undeb Cymru Fydd, the all-Party organisation that was created to campaign for a Parliament for Wales. Glyn Tegai served as Chairman of Undeb Cymru Fydd, 1968–70. He served as Chairman of the Liberal Party in Wales and during the 1959 General Election campaign he featured on TV with Robin Day. Day was one of Ronnie Watehouse’s closest friends; Waterhouse himself was of course from an influential Liberal family in north Wales.

In 1967 Glyn Tegai became a Member of the Welsh Arts Council, serving until 1976. In 1971 he was appointed National Governor for Wales BBC and Chairman of the Broadcasting Council for Wales, serving in these roles until 1979. In 1977 Glyn Tegai became Vice-President of the North Wales Arts Association, serving until 1994. In 1980 he became a Member of the Board of the Channel Four Television Company, on which he sat until 1987. In 1981 Glyn Tegai became a member of the S4C Authority, serving util 1987. In 1988 he became Chairman of the Welsh Broadcasting Trust, serving until 1996.

In 1951 Glyn Tegai was appointed as a lecturer in English at Basle University, Switzerland. In 1953 he was appointed as a lecturer in Comparative Literary Studies at Manchester University.  From 1964–1989 Glyn Tegai was Warden of the Gregynog Centre, University of Wales.

 

Garner Evans was re-elected for Denbigh in the 1951 General Election with a majority of 7,915 over the Labour candidate, which was Idwal Jones. 

Glyn Tegai didn’t contest the 1951 election, because he was working in Switzerland at the time.

 

In Parliament Garner Evans was made Secretary to the Parliamentary Committee on Atomic Energy. Dafydd worked at Windscale in the 1950s, where he gained knowledge of wrongdoing and cover-ups at Gov’t level that stood him in good stead (see previous posts). Garner Evans pressed for more help for his constituents: in December 1953 he stated that the best aid the Government could give to agriculture in Wales was a marketing policy and in November 1954 he insisted that the Home Secretary could not manage Welsh affairs without additional Ministerial help and called for new Minister of State in the Lords. Early in 1955, Evans was one of six MPs to visit the British Army of the Rhine and bring back a report calling for National Servicemen to be paid the same as the regular Army.

Meanwhile, hundreds and hundreds of people were locked up in the asylum on the outskirts of Denbigh, in appalling conditions, invisible to the outside world, their deaths at the hands of those ‘caring’ for them going unnoticed and no doubt undocumented.

 

There was some local criticism of Garner Evans. In December 1954 an extraordinary meeting of the Conservative Central Council in the constituency was called to hear a report on a complaint against him: it was alleged that he had addressed a meeting in Llanrwst when “not in a fit condition to do so”. The meeting passed a vote recording its displeasure, but also adopted Evans as its candidate for the next election. A model of business which was applied to Dafydd throughout his entire career, even when Dafydd’s condition was so unfit that it was lethal.

The return of Glyn Tegai Hughes ensured that Garner Evans’ majority was cut in the 1955 General Election to 10.94% (4,641). The Labour candidate for Denbigh that year was Robyn Lewis.

Evans spoke in January 1956 in favour of encouraging the Welsh language through education and broadcasting, arguing that Welsh nationalism was caused by fear of the loss of language and culture. When the Government appointed a Minister with responsibility for Welsh Affairs, Evans echoed Labour complaints about the lowly status of the new Minister and described his powers as “nebulous”.

Continuing concerns at Garner Evans’ political and personal performance both in Parliament and in the constituency prompted a meeting of the Conservative Central Council to be called in May 1958. Despite Garner Evans pleading to the meeting that “I have spent pretty well all my life trying to bring Liberals and Conservatives together”, the delegates passed a motion of no confidence in Evans. The association President then said that he would then move to discuss with the National Liberals how to select a candidate acceptable to both parties. In November 1958 Conservative Central Office reported that Evans had told them he would not be a candidate for re-election. The Conservative Association subsequently selected Geraint Morgan.

This situation put the National Liberals in a quandary as they had not withdrawn support from Garner Evans. In July 1958 Evans issued a statement to his electors pledging continued support for the Government and urging the Conservatives not to take any “hasty action” which might place his and other National Liberal seats in jeopardy. The same month, a meeting of the National Liberals pledged support for him; however the Conservatives undertook prolonged negotiations.

It was only on the eve of the 1959 General Election that a deal worked out by Conservative Chairman Lt-Col. J. C. Wynne-Edwards was agreed, under which Geraint Morgan agreed to run as a ‘Conservative and National Liberal’ candidate. Morgan spoke to the National Liberals and persuaded them to pledge official support to him. During the election campaign, the Liberal candidate attacked the Conservatives for withdrawing support from Evans.

Geraint Morgan QC, the Conservative candidate, won Denbigh at the 1959 General Election and he remained Denbigh’s MP until the constituency disappeared in 1983. Geraint Morgan has featured on this blog before. He was a barrister who had studied at Aber and at Trinity Hall, Cambridge. Geraint Morgan was a member of Gray’s Inn and practised on the Northern Circuit. Morgan spoke several languages and was fluent in both Welsh and English and a ‘Welsh language champion’.

Morgan did very little in Parliament; he rarely spoke in the House and spent most of his time involved with his legal work. However the patient batterers of Denbigh loved him. He replied to all their letters diligently, in Welsh if required. When the A55 was upgraded, Geraint succeeded in bagging his constituents compensation. Which was more than those victims of a trafficking gang illegally imprisoned ever got. Now what political muscle did Geraint exert at Westminster to get those constituents compensation re the A55???

Geraint had only been the MP for Denbigh for two years when Enoch Powell visited the North Wales Hospital and had that row with the reception committee, which ended with Powell saying ‘I will not allow you to do this to people’ and walking out. They’ll have only shown him the best wards as well. Powell of course didn’t carry out his promise, the matter of the horror story which was Denbigh was quietly dropped very soon after he got back to London. See previous posts.

Ironically Geraint was appalled over the Profumo Affair.

The constituency of Denbigh disappeared in 1983; that decision must have been made a few years previously. Mary Wynch was illegally imprisoned in 1979, the year in which Thatch was elected. Mary began litigation as soon as she got out of Denbigh. I wonder if the disappearance of the constituency might have been related to that?

At the 1983 General Election, Geraint Morgan entered the fray re the selection as Tory candidate for the new seat of Clwyd North West which involved a massive punch-up between a Thatcherite friend of Dafydd’s gang, Beata Brookes and a Tory wet friend of Dafydd’s gang, Sir Anthony Meyer. Conservative Party Central office tried to parachute Beata Brookes in as the candidate. I wonder why? Anthony Meyer successfully sued in law to have the imposition of Brookes as the candidate declared unlawful. A new selection meeting was held, where the choice was between Meyer and Brookes. Geraint Morgan’s application to be included was rejected, despite (according to eyewitnesses) his having considerable support from the floor of the public meeting (open to Conservative Party members, who were not permitted a general vote). See previous posts for further details of the chaos and those involved.

Thatch must have been in a real quandry. Three willing facilitators of a paedophile gang, all wanting to be the Tory candidate for Clwyd North West, but the one that she favoured, Beata Brookes, was universally loathed.

After leaving Parliament, Geraint Morgan continued to practise law as a Crown Court Recorder.

 

Some of those others who had a desire to be the MP for Denbigh who, like everybody else, ignored what was happening to hundreds of people in the North Wales Hospital, as well as the wider trafficking gang and associated criminality, have been regulars on this blog. I have provided extensive details in previous posts, so I’ll just give a quick resume here.

Dafydd himself stood for election as the Plaid candidate, twice. In 1959 Dafydd polled 3077 votes and in 1964 he polled 3444.

In 1966 Sir Alun Talfan Davies, a barrister and judge, stood as the Liberal candidate. He was a member of Gray’s Inn and was retained by the NUM. Davies was a counsel to the Public Inquiry into Aberfan. From 1967 to 1990, Davies was Chairman of the Trustees of the Aberfan Fund, which allocated the money raised by public subscription following the disaster. As well as sitting as a Circuit judge in various courts in Wales, Davies was a member of the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board, 1976-85 and a member of the Court of Appeal of Jersey and Guernsey.

Sir Alun had been a member of Plaid during the 1930s, but he defected to the Liberals, becoming Chairman of the Liberal Party for Wales. Talfan Davies read law at Aber and at Gonville and Caius, Cambridge. His daughter married the Welsh Rugby International Barry John.

Meredith Edwards was the Plaid candidate in 1966. Edwards was an actor and writer who was born at Rhosllannerchrugog and went to Ruabon Grammar School. He worked with the Welsh National Theatre Company and with the Liverpool Playhouse and also starred on TV and in films. Edwards was a member of the Gorsedd of the Bards.

In 1970, Ann Clwyd, who came from the Denbigh area, stood as the Labour candidate. Ann is a Feminist Socialist.

In Feb 1974, Kremlyn Sherrington was the Labour candidate.

In Oct 1974, Paul Flynn was the Labour candidate. Ieuan Wyn Jones stood as the Plaid candidate. Ieuan came from the Denbigh area, his dad was a Nonconformist Minister there and Ieuan subsequently practised as a solicitor at nearby Ruthin. Ieuan must have been really desperate to represent the patient batterers and people traffickers, because he stood as the Plaid candidate again in 1979…The year of the Mary Wynch Scandal Ieuan…

 

 

So that is a small part of the history of the Slaves, Perfect Slaves. It’s been going on for a very long time. One persistent feature of north Wales has been the presence of a great many orphanages and children’s homes, long before Dafydd and John Allen went into business. The numerous homes, which were run by a variety of charities and religious organisations, were a presence in north Wales by the late 19 century, which seems a bit odd because the region wasn’t heavily populated. Many of the children’s homes even used the same buildings that Dafydd’s gang subsequently purchased and used. I can only assume that there was a demand for children’s homes because so many people in north Wales were so poor that they had trouble affording the upkeep of their own children. Then there were the many families who had lost their fathers in industrial accidents… The average lifespan for some grades of worker in the slate quarries was less than 40 years old.

Slaves, Perfect Slaves.

Anyone up for giving the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board another few million?

 

I haven’t had time to follow the news for the past few days, but I did catch a quick glimpse of an article which stated that the North Wales Hospital has finally been purchased by Denbigh Council. There won’t be an excavations of the site now then in pursuit of bodies. Not with everybody knowing Taid…

Holding The Country To Ransom – Part I

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hanson (left) speaking to Policy Exchange in 2013:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

It’s the Stigma that’s the problem!

 

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

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

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

Let them eat Largactil!

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

Well-in with the paedophiles’ friends then.

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

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

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

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

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

Huw died 11 months after the Waterhouse Report was published.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

All down to Stigma was it Jane?

 
 

 

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

This was the problem Kim:

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

Here are the two clean-living Young Conservatives:

Rhyl Life: QUIZ ANSWER # 148

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

In 1965 Walker organised Heath’s leadership campaign.

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

Walker was Chair of the Carlton Club.

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

Angela Rumbold BBC.jpg

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

Do you remember a man called Donald Naismith Theresa?

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

Hey, Hey DAJ, How Many Kids Did You Kill Today?

I have been very rude about Dr David Healy on this blog because since the early 1990s, David has worked cheek by jowl with the traffickers of north Wales yet he has not mentioned a word about their criminal misconduct and abuse of patients. David certainly doesn’t waste his own time with them and he has made it obvious for years that he thinks that they are complete tossers, but he has never blown the whistle on any of them.

What David has done however is to very effectively expose the dreadful practices of Big Pharma. I received an angry comment months ago from a fan of David’s asking me ‘Do you actually read David’s blog?’ Of course I do! David Healy is a Top Doctor who knows his science and his statistics which is rather more unusual than people outside of the field would imagine. I don’t have time to read all of his associated outputs, but yes, I do believe what David publishes about clinical trials and the efficacy or otherwise of drugs and I would be happy to rely on him for info regarding that. My problem with David is that he is the one really clever Top Doctor that Gwynedd has – believe me, most of the others are so bad that they would simply be nothing but immensely entertaining if they weren’t so dangerous – and he cannot possibly have failed to notice what has gone on around him, but he hasn’t said a word…

However, I must thank David, because his latest blog post has reminded me of something that I should have followed up by now but I haven’t. David’s latest post mentions Richard Doll and Doll’s colleague Austin ‘Tony’ Bradford Hill, as well as Archie Cochrane. David Healy will know a great deal about their work because they were epidemiologists and medical statisticians, indeed the fathers of those disciplines. Those three really are considered to be giants of medicine. Sir Richard Doll of course made his name when he demonstrated the link between smoking and lung cancer and Sir Austin Bradford Hill was involved with some of that work as well.

My post ‘They Think It’s All Over – It Is Now’ discusses an absolutely laughable piece of ‘research’ which was published by some Top Doctors and medical statisticians from Bangor in the ‘British Journal of Cancer’, Dec 1990: ‘Gastric Cancer In Gwynedd. Possible Links With Bracken.’ The authors are: O.P. Galpin; C.J. Whitaker, Rh. Whitaker; and J.Y. Kassab. Galpin’s and Rh. Whitaker’s affiliation is given as Ysbyty Gwynedd and C.J. Whitaker’s and Kassab’s affiliation is given as the Centre for Applied Statistics, UCNW.

The authors of this paper claimed to have found an association between people who grew up in Gwynedd and drank buttermilk as children and the development of gastric cancer in later life. The theory was that cows in Gwynedd ingested much bracken while they grazed and that carcinogens from bracken passed into the cows’ milk…

For some unexplained reason, the geniuses from Bangor had been assisted by Sir Richard Doll in the early stages of the research and this was stated on the paper. Someone really hyped up this ground-breaking paper as soon as it was published and it was given much coverage in the media across the world.

Days later questions were asked about the research and shortly there was an admission that the study was fundamentally flawed and people quietly stopped discussing it. In my post ‘They Think It’s All Over – It Is Now’ I explain that the study was SO fundamentally flawed – one reason being that the control sample consisted of a grand total of three and the sample also included someone who didn’t actually have gastric cancer – that I cannot understand why the journal ever accepted it for publication.

How and why Sir Richard Doll ever agreed to be associated with this dog’s breakfast I never understood.

However, the paper was published and the global leaders from Bangor received worldwide acclaim – before they became a laughing stock just days later – in Dec 1990, when Dafydd et al (it was Dafydd’s mates who wrote and advised on the paper) really needed good PR. Allegations of linked paedophile gangs across the UK involving High Society figures were beginning to surface, police investigations and inquiries were being launched and Lord Greville Janner had been interviewed under police caution.

It was in Dec 1990 when I was finally forced out of my job at St George’s Hospital Medical School and there was yet another attempt by Dr Tony and Sadie Francis to have me imprisoned on the basis of ‘evidence’ which their own lawyers knew was fabricated.

By Dec 1990, Dafydd, Drs Tony and Sadie Francis, Gwynedd Health Authority and Gwynedd Social Services were dragging me through the High Court constantly (see previous posts eg. ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’) on the basis of their extensive perjury. The legal actions was being co-ordinated by the MDU, the MDU’s solicitors Hempsons, Andrew Park (the crooked lawyer who worked for the Welsh Office) and Ron Evans (the crooked lawyer who worked for Gwynedd Social Services) among others. The prosecutions brought for contempt of court in the attempts to imprison me were authorised by the Attorney General, Sir Patrick Mayhew, who before he became a Tory MP, was a bent barrister who worked for the MDU. Mayhew was responsible for ensuring that Dr Morris Fraser, a paedophile child psychiatrist, was allowed to continue to practice after he had been convicted of sexually assaulting a child in the 1970s. Fraser had been based in Belfast but left there to work at Springfield Hospital, the mental health unit attached to St George’s Hospital Medical School and then UCL. In 1989 I had begun working at St George’s and at the very beginning of 1991 I was admitted to Springfield Hospital, only to later discover that Springfield had a hotline to Dafydd, Tony Francis and Lucille Hughes and were colluding with them (see post ‘Some Very Eminent Psychiatrists From London’). Wandsworth Social Services were also involved and wrote to Lucille telling her that if she wanted a friendly chat with them she only had to ask. I have never had any contact with Wandsworth Social Services and the first that I knew of all this was some two years ago when my lawyer forwarded me the rest of my medical records.

At the time a big paedophile/trafficking ring was operating in south London which had links to the gang in north Wales (see post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part III’). Donald Naismith, the Director of Wandsworth Education Authority, was known to be a paedophile (see previous posts). One of the corrupt MSF reps at St George’s, David Hole, lived in Wandsworth, was an active member of the local SDP and I think might have been a Wandsworth Councillor.

 

The ludicrous journal article written by Dafydd’s mates was written long before it was published. The original version of the paper was submitted in Oct 1988, the referees gave advice and it was revised and accepted for publication in Dec 1990 (yet still no-one noticed the sample of three and in the inclusion of someone who didn’t have the illness under investigation.)

I know some of the people who co-authored that paper and I doubt that they wrote even the horse shit that they did write very speedily. It will have taken them at least a year and probably longer for someone to devise the dastardly plan, get that lot to get their act together, stop their infighting and actually write the first draft of the paper. So I suspect that someone sent up the Paedophiles In Distress Flare at some point in the summer or autumn of 1987 and for some reason Richard Doll agreed to help out.

 

On 11 June 1987 there was a General Election. It was the one which the Windbag really believed that he was going to win but he lost spectacularly. The polls had famously predicted a Windbag landslide and by June 1987 Mandy had allegedly transformed and ‘modernised’ the Labour Party, as well as the Windbag, by putting a picture of a red rose wherever he could find space for one. Sadly for Mandy,  thousands of images of a red rose were no substitute for a competent leader and the poor old Windbag was caught unawares when he lost the election.

PLOT RE ME N PRISON

BROWN N PHONE CALL

The Windbag and his wife spent much time and energy campaigning in north Wales in the run up to June 1987. The Windbag knew Tony Francis from their days at Cardiff University and Mrs Windbag was from a family of Labour Party activists in Holyhead. Mrs Windbag’s parents were so well-connected to the Labour hierarchy through people such as Lord Cledwyn, MP for Anglesey and former Secretary of State for Wales under Harold Wilson, that they had enjoyed a hotline to the very top of the Labour Party as long ago as the 1960s (see post ‘The Cradle Of Filth’).

In 1985 Tony Francis told me that the Tories would never win another General Election and that the Windbag would be the next PM. I told him that the Tories would win again.

A few other people got their hopes up in 1987 as well:

Gang of Four line-up

 

In 1985 or thereabouts Dr D.G.E. Wood told me that Dr Death ‘had guts’. Fortunately for the rest of us, Dr Death might have had guts but he never managed to acquire many seats. Dr D.G.E. Wood was a big fan of Dr Death. Brown observed at the time that Wood was closing ranks with ‘shits in his own profession again’. Dr Death personally knew some of the Top Doctors in north Wales who were facilitating the paedophile/trafficking ring. For further details of the Gang of Four and their many links to those we know and love, see post ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’.

Prior to the 1987 General Election, Sir Peter Morrison had been Deputy Chairman of the Tory Party; after Thatch won the election, he was appointed Minister of State for Energy. Throughout it all Morrison was abusing kids in care, including those in north Wales and Cheshire.

Previous posts have detailed the well co-ordinated plans on the part of Dafydd and the Drs Francis et al to have me framed and imprisoned for a serious offence in 1987; the plans were formulated in the weeks running up to the General Election and it was presumed that I would be in the slammer very shortly after the General Election. David Ewart of the Mental Health Act Commission and Risley Remand Centre were fully on board with it all, as were the managers of Gwynedd and Clwyd Health Authorities. Andrew Park at the Welsh Office will have no doubt had a hand in it all as well.

Douglas Hurd was Home Secretary throughout this en masse corruption involving the criminal justice system. Hurd was the nephew of the botanist Professor Edred Henry Corner, who knew the botanist Professor Greig-Smith, a leading light in the Plant Biology Dept at UCNW (Bangor University) where I had completed my first degree three years previously. D.G.E. Wood’s wife Chris Wood was a lecturer in the Plant Biology Dept and the Woods were mates with many of the other staff at Bangor, in the Plant Biology Dept as well as other staff. Another Plant Biology lecturer, Ralph Oxley, was married to Isobel Hargreaves, who was a social worker employed by Gwynedd Social Services and a colleague of the paedophile gang.

At that time, Dafydd still called the shots in the Psychology Dept at Bangor and of course huge swathes of the institution’s infrastructure, including the Principal Sir Eric Sunderland, were on board with Dafydd’s gang and their network.

Dafydd and the paedophiles had been getting quite anxious because in Dec 1986, a big player in the wider ring, Professor Oliver Brooke of St George’s Hospital Medical School, had been jailed for the possession of child porn and the police – or at least a contingent of honest police – were closing in on them all. Distress flares were being sent up all over the place and in May 1987 Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane came to the rescue and Ollie Brooke was released on appeal, on the grounds that he’d suffered enough and that Ollie’s vast collection of kiddie porn was no more worrying than a collection of cigarette cards. See previous posts eg. ‘Oliver!’

Lord Brian Flowers, a nuclear physicist, was a big hitter in London University at the time. Flowers spent years as Rector of Imperial College and served as the VC of London University as well as the VC of Manchester University. Flowers not only spent years concealing the serious misconduct and research fraud on the part of Top Doctors in London University, but Flowers was also concealing the trafficking ring of which St George’s/Springfield and other London University hospitals were part. Flowers came from and went to school in Swansea and was loyal to his old pals in Wales (see post ‘A Bit More Paleontology’). There were many connections between Bangor and the crooks of London University, but one of the most useful was Professor Wynn Humphrey Davies, a former lecturer at Bangor who had subsequently spent much of his career at Imperial College along with Brian Flowers and who then retired to the Bangor area, where he spent many happy decades on the Council of UCNW making damn sure that the trafficking ring was not worried unduly (see post ‘I Told You I Was Trouble’). Wynn Humphrey Davies was from a well-known Liberal family in north Wales.

 

My documents suggest that an order to Get Her was sent in my direction in about May 1987 when Ollie was let loose on the world once more.

Thanks Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey!

‘Be ye ever so high, the law is above you’ as Lord Denning famously said. Although Lord Denning knew that was not true and confirmed this when he dismissed the appeal of the Birmingham Six stating that if their convictions were overturned, it would point to such serious corruption within every layer of the criminal justice system that such an ‘appalling vista’ could never be allowed. When the convictions of the Birmingham Six were overturned in March 1991, Lord Denning famously remarked that if they had been hung there wouldn’t have been all this bloody fuss.

Yes and if Dafydd and the numerous Top Doctors who lied, perjured themselves, destroyed/forged/planted evidence had got away with it, I would now be sitting in Broadmoor with the world being reassured that I was phenomenally dangerous, so much so that I should never be let out. All because I complained about a disgusting old Top Doctor who unbeknown to me was facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring and had spent his career lobotomising anyone who dared complain. The irony is that Gwynne the Lobotomist died in the latter part of 1986, but so many other people had hitched their cart up to his fortunes and joined in with his crimes that the wagon kept rolling for decades after Gwynne was pushing up the daisies.

Gwynne’s abuse ring originally involved little more than the north Wales region. By the mid-1980s it had expanded into a pan-European trafficking ring, including hundreds of children’s homes and it also had a very profitable booming side-line in child porn and drugs.

The Royal Courts of Justice, where Denning sat, 1944-56, in the High Court and Court of Appeal and again, 1962-82 as Master of the Rolls. I appeared there myself in the spring of 1991, after Tony and Sadie Francis perjured themselves and requested my imprisonment. I travelled down from Rachub, Bethesda on the bus to Bangor, then on the train to London. I did not have a lawyer with me. No questions were asked by anyone, although Wimmin’s Champ Baroness Helena Kennedy was involved in a Wimmin’s Rights Test Case in a neighbouring court to the one in which I appeared and as I left the Royal Courts of Justice I was waylaid by a Wimmin’s Protest asking for my support. St Helena was defending Sara Thornton who had murdered her husband. Sara’s case was one involving domestic violence and Sara received huge support from the Wimmin’s campaigners of the Labour Party, including Jo Richardson (see post ‘ It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not Arf’).
  • Strange but true for March

 

As explained in previous posts, Dafydd et al’s Dastardly Plan backfired because Sgt Morgan and a nursing officer, Jeff Crowther, didn’t tell as many lies as were required and I was not charged with threatening to stab anyone. So Tony Francis then rang Sgt Morgan and told him that he was sending a Top Doctor over to the Bangor Police Station to section me. Sgt Morgan told Francis that the Top Doctor would not be allowed into the police station. Then D.G.E. Wood arrived at the station and demanded to see me. Sgt Morgan refused to let him in. I had still not been charged with any offence yet was in Bangor Police Station after midnight when Dafydd came crashing in. No-one told Dafydd to bugger off. Dafydd spent about three minutes in my cell and said ‘Well I won’t be offering ewe any help tonight, I think ewe should be in prrrison’.

Then Alwyn Jones my solicitor turned up, told me that the police had told him that Dafydd had been to see me and asked me what Dafydd had said. So I replied ‘I think ewe should be in prrrison’. Alwyn laughed and said ‘he’s saying that because you’ve made a complaint about him’.

I was released from Bangor Police Station the next morning after being charged with a minor public order offence after Francis et al admitted that no I hadn’t tried to stab anyone but ooh we were terrified, please charge her with something at least. I then returned to Leicester where I was living at the time.

After I finished my MSc in May 1987, I had moved in with Brown at his place in Leicester, where I lived until April 1988. We had no idea at the time, but Leicester was another hub of the Westminster Paedophile Ring and by 1987 the police were finally taking an interest in the Leicestershire social worker Frank Beck and his mate Greville Janner. When Dafydd et al trumped up the charge against me in the summer of 1987, Alwyn sought an ‘independent’ expert report regarding me from Dr James Earp, a Top Doctor at the Towers Hospital in Leicester (see post ‘An Expert From England’). Earp colluded with the gang in north Wales and I now know that Earp and his colleagues were part of the professional network in Leicestershire who were concealing that part of the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See previous posts. Earp himself was at the centre of a big mental health scandal in 1993 which involved the murderer James Rudman; the case suggested massive corruption in the criminal justice system, the police and the NHS in Leicester (see post ‘Gwlad y Menig Gwynion’).

 

After I narrowly escaped being fitted up by Dafydd, Francis et al for ‘attempting to stab a doctor’ just after the 1987 General Election, I went to see MIND in Leicester as well as William Bingley, the Legal Director of MIND HQ in London, to discuss events in north Wales. The man in Leicester MIND told me that he knew of serious problems caused by a ‘Mafia’ in north Wales which were alleged to be ‘tied up with Freemasonry’ and centred upon a ‘Welsh doctor who’s been up there for years and has everything stitched up for himself’.

It was the man from Leicester MIND who sent me to London to see William Bingley. Bingley discussed Dafydd’s crimes at length with me, described Dafydd as a ‘charming psychopath’ and told me that if I ever returned to north Wales I would undoubtedly be arrested by Dafydd and the gang. I found out years later that Bingley and his mum Lady Juliet Bingley and probably his dad Admiral Sir Alec Bingley as well were part of Dafydd’s network and had been since the mid-1960s (see previous posts). The man from Leicester MIND was also fully on board with the gang. I imagine that the man from Leicester MIND and William Bingley rang Dafydd as well as a few other people and had a lovely chat with them as soon as I left their offices.

 

After the failed attempt to imprison me, Dafydd told me during a phone call that if I dropped my complaint about him he’d get me a place at Liverpool Medical School and he even gave me the name of the Professor who would fix it all up. I declined the offer and told my solicitor Alwyn Jones, who was based in Bangor, that Dafydd had tried to bribe me and that I was going to start recording my phone calls. Alwyn told me that if I managed to record Dafydd ever saying any such thing again I should take the recording to the police. Dafydd never tried to bribe me over the telephone again.

Probably because Dafydd had been warned that I was recording the calls… But then so were MI5 and they protected Dafydd not me.

Alwyn’s then-wife worked as a lawyer for Gwynedd County Council. Her father was a policeman with the North Wales Police and was also a Freemason. Alwyn’s junior solicitor, Meleri Tudor, assisted on some of my cases. Meleri’s dad was a Nonconformist Minister and I think that Meleri’s brother was as well. Meleri’s sister was a Welsh language activist who had served time in Holloway.

 

Brown, who had been listening in to Dafydd’s phone call, subsequently wrote to Gwynedd Health Authority about the matter detailing exactly what he had heard Dafydd saying. Brown did not receive a reply. He wrote again a few years later and again did not receive a reply. Years later when I received copies of my medical records, Brown’s letters were in there. An unsigned handwritten note was attached to one of them, saying ‘what shall we do about Dr Brown’s letter?’ with the answer ‘Do not reply’.

Bribery, corruption, conspiracy to pervert the course of justice. Solution? ‘Do not reply’.

The ultimate solution was for someone to attempt to murder Brown.

Brown’s brother was also the subject of at least one very serious murder attempt and two others almost as worrying. Brown’s brother was a witness to Dafydd’s wrongdoing as well, because after Dafydd tried to bribe me and no-one would respond to my concerns about this, Brown’s brother rang Dafydd disguised as an investigative journalist, ‘Hugh Bailey’, interested in my case. Brown’s brother detailed a number of Dafydd’s crimes against other people of which we knew and then told Dafydd that he’d been given a written account of my experiences which included ‘this young woman wrongly arrested and illegally detained in a locked ward…this is all rather worrying Dr Jones’. Dafydd put on his best manners and said ‘now ewe know that I cannot discuss patients’ cases’. So I yelled down the phone ‘it’s OK Dafydd, I’m here and you have my permission to discuss the whole lot’. Dafydd just blew, he exploded – well he can only manage the charming bit for a few minutes, then it’s just the psychopath portion that takes over – and went into a very impressive rant, which began with ‘I spoke to you for nearly 40 minutes the other day’ [yes and I still didn’t accept the bribe] and ended with ‘I will not have my fon abused in this way, goodnight Mr Bailey’, whereupon Dafydd slammed the phone down so hard that he probably did it serious damage.

We just fell about laughing and provided Brown with the details of the exchange.

Then Hugh Bailey the Roving Reporter and I hired a car (because we didn’t own one) and went up to the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. We didn’t tell anyone that we were going to do this except of course Brown, but since beginning this blog I have received mountains of evidence that we were under surveillance by the security services and that our phones and houses were bugged. Our plan was to catch the liars and perjurers unawares, ask our questions and record and photograph them as they responded. Or not.

So imagine my surprise when as we pulled up outside Denbigh, Alun Davies appeared in his car and parked directly behind us. We got out and were greeted by a lady who had rushed out of the main entrance with a rictus grin on her face shrieking ‘which newspaper are you from?’ Brown’s brother breezily replied ‘Oh I’m freelance’. We asked for Dafydd and the lady told us that Dafydd wasn’t on the premises, they didn’t know when he next would be and there was no-one at all with whom we could discuss my complaint.

So we walked into the building with the lady pursuing us saying ‘please don’t photograph the patients, it’s a breach of their privacy’. We were quite happy to agree not to photograph the poor sods who had been unlawfully imprisoned. But I knew one of them anyway. As we walked down a corridor, we met Stephen Bagnall, the boy who had been in care in Wrexham with whom I had made friends when Dafydd illegally imprisoned me – and Stephen – in 1986/87 (see post ‘It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not Arf’). Stephen recognised me and came over. He told me that as soon as I had been released from Bryn Golau Ward, Dafydd had sectioned him for a year. So Stephen had at the time that Brown’s brother and I met him been in the ‘care’ of Dafydd for some seven or eight months. He looked terrible, absolutely dreadful. Stephen did not look the picture of health when I first met him in Dec 1986, but he had really gone downhill since then. His face was covered in bruises, he was skeletal and his hands were raw and bleeding because he couldn’t stop chewing them. Stephen was not chewing his hands when I met him in Dec 1986 in Bryn Golau. He was a young man who could barely read and write who had spent years sniffing glue and taking drugs but he had recently become involved with some ‘church people’ who knew Dafydd and for the first time in years, in Dec 1986 Stephen had not taken drugs for a few weeks.

So why was Stephen covered in bruises when he was being ‘cared for’ in Denbigh and who had done what to him which had driven him to chew his hands out of anxiety and terror?

A young man who had been in the Wrexham children’s homes. Illegally imprisoned in Denbigh.

How and when did Stephen die Dafydd? Is his body one of those concealed in the grounds of Denbigh? Or was Stephen found dead after he was ‘released, having been helped by the mental health services’?

Stephen Bagnall. Born about 1965, lived on the Queen’s Park Estate at Wrexham. Openly insulted by the staff of Bryn Golau Ward who told each other how much they hated him. When I challenged them about their dreadful attitude, they told me that Stephen was ‘lucky’ to have Dafydd because no-one else would waste their time with him.

When Dafydd was trying to bribe me on the phone he mentioned that he knew that Stephen was one of the people whom I had named as a witness to the wrongdoing in Denbigh.

As Brown’s brother and I drove away from Denbigh, Alun Davies tailed us all the way out of the grounds and down the lane for quite some distance.

On 18 Nov 1987 a fireball ripped through King’s Cross Station. Thirty-one people died. I was due to be passing through King’s Cross at the time of the fire but I was delayed so I missed it. The cause of the fire was never definitively identified. Just after I began this blog I was told that the King’s Cross Fire was supposed to have killed me.

 

Two other people who suffered as a result of the police moving in on Ollie Brooke in the spring of 1986 were my housemate Anne Vernon, who knew what was happening to me at the hands of the Top Doctors and who was killed in a car crash in April 1986 and Patient F, who had told a few too many people what he had found out was happening to the boys in Ty Newydd children’s home in Bangor. In 1986 F was fitted up for the possession of Class A drugs, violently assaulted by a senior officer at the police station, then fitted up for arson, imprisoned in Risley Remand Centre where I believe that he heard a murder being committed and was unlawfully imprisoned in Denbigh by Dafydd for a year. F was subsequently fleeced of his property, money and child as a result of an unholy collusion between a few local predators, Gwynedd Social Services, a Gwynedd County Councillor, the North Wales Police, the Hergest Unit, Bethesda Surgery and the North Wales Housing Association. See previous posts.

 

As well as having Sir Peter Morrison’s needs to tend to, Dafydd and the gang were also providing services to George Thomas, Labour MP for Cardiff Central and then Cardiff West, 1945-83; Secretary of State for Wales, 1968-70; and Speaker of the House, 1976-83. George Thomas was the highest profile Methodist in the UK and was friends with Harold Wilson, Thatch and the Royals. In 1983 Thatch made him Viscount Tonypandy. In recent years it has been admitted that, as in the case of Peter Morrison, George Thomas’s sex offending was very, very widely known. Many people in the Labour Party loathed George Thomas, but he was one hell of a vote catcher in south Wales and what would have happened to the Labour Party if they had lost the support of south Wales?

The Top Doctors did very well out of George Thomas. In return for keeping quiet about his child molesting and STIs (see post ‘It Wasn’t On Our Radar’), George Thomas diverted a massive proportion of the Welsh NHS budget to ensure that the Top Doctors got their flagship hospital/medical school in Cardiff (see post ‘The Great Stink’) and Thomas also robustly supported medical charidees. They loved old George down at the Welsh National School of Medicine and the wheels were oiled by Professor Kenneth Rawnsley, who from 1964 until 1985 held the Chair in Psychological Medicine at Cardiff and was responsible for providing the most enormous umbrella for Gwynne and Dafydd et al. Rawnsley never mentioned the Denbigh Dungeon full of the victims of the paedophile gang when the mental health services in north Wales were ‘inspected’ and approved as being of a suitable standard (see post ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy…’). Rawnsley held leading roles in the Royal College of Psychiatrists and other bodies, he assisted with the Mental Health Act which was written by Dafydd’s mate Professor Robert Bluglass and which Dafydd repeatedly broke with impunity and throughout his career Rawnsley complacently reassured everyone that all was well with psychiatry in Wales. Rawnsley’s wife was the child psychiatrist Elinor Kapp, who was a founding member and keen supporter of one of George Thomas’s medical charidees. Tony Francis trained with Rawnsley, both as a medical student and a junior doctor.

In June 1983, another time bomb who had to be protected by the Top Docs and everyone else for decades was elected as the Labour MP for Caerphilly, one Ron Davies (see post ‘Cottaging At Castle Gate’).

 

So by the time that Richard Doll was supplying advice to the authors of that laughable journal article which finally saw the light of day in the ‘British Journal of Cancer’ in Dec 1990, the stakes were very high for Dafydd and the gang and the many people directly involved with them as well as the myriads who were feeding off them…

 

In south Wales, it wasn’t only people like the Windbag and his missus who had already made it as far as Westminster who would have gone tits up if Dafydd et al had been exposed. There were those on South Glamorgan County Council as well, some of whom, including Jane Hutt, Mark Drakeford and Julie Morgan, had big ideas for their own futures. The Rev Bob Morgan, Labour leader of South Glamorgan County Council, didn’t just have his own interests to consider when he became involved with George Thomas’s charidee work; the Rev Bob had his little daughter, Eluned, to think of as well! I mean there was that South Glamorgan County Council scholarship to foot the bill for Eluned’s school fees at Atlantic College, there was that friendship with the Windbags and goodness knows what else. Eluned was never going to be offered the job of the Baroness of Ely when she grew up if the Rev Bob squealed.

Rhodri The Ale Twat, the former housemate of the Windbag, was elected as the MP for Cardiff West himself at the June 1987 General Election. Jane Hutt is a long standing good friend of Julie Morgan and was a big pal of Rhodri’s.

 

After Professor Ollie was arrested and imprisoned, the cracks at St George’s Hospital Medical School needed papering over, so the Dean of St George’s head rolled and in 1988 a New Broom was appointed. The New Broom was the filthiest one that could possibly have been found, unless someone had actually appointed Dafydd himself as Dean of St George’s; it was Professor Sir William Asscher, a nephrologist from Cardiff University, who was a hero in north Wales for having secured them their rather inadequate kidney service. Asscher had been at the heart of the rot in south Wales for years and he was a real bastard as well, so obviously he was St George’s first choice as Dean. Asscher remained in post at St George’s until 1996, as bombs went off under him constantly.

After Asscher took the job at St George’s, he continued to keep a home in the posh bit of Glamorgan and he returned to live there full-time when he retired. So Asscher was in situ in 1999, when Jane Hutt was elected as AM for the Vale of Glamorgan. Hutt did stand as the Labour candidate for Cardiff North, a constituency with many Top Docs and other affluent professionals, in 1983 but lost to the Tory Gwilym Jones, who was just as much of a good friend to Dafydd and the gang as Jane et al. There was a happy ending for Cardiff North in 1999 when Julie Morgan was elected as their MP, succeeding Gwilym Jones. In 2011 Julie was elected as the AM for Cardiff North, although by that time they had dispensed with her services as their MP (see post ‘The Paedophiles’ Friends of Cardiff North’).

Jane Hutt had many reasons to never want to see Dafydd et al exposed, apart from her own political ambitions. Jane’s dad Michael Hutt was a pathologist who was educated at Eastbourne College and then Tommy’s. Michael Hutt worked in Uganda, 1962-70, then returned to the UK to become Chair of Geographical Pathology at Tommy’s, where he remained until he retired in 1983, at which point he became Emeritus Chair. Michael Hutt knew those crooked Home Office pathologists who were based at Tommy’s as well as at other institutions who systematically lied in cases of suspicious deaths in which the rich and famous were implicated, pathologists which included Iain West, Keith Mant and Keith Simpson. Michael Hutt would also have known Professor Austin Gresham, the Cambridge pathologist who worked for the Home Office when Douglas Hurd was Home Secretary. Gresham came from and went to school in Wrexham  (see post ‘Oh No! It’s The Pathetic Sharks’).

Adrian Bell, one of the lecturers at UCNW’s Plant Biology Dept who was a friend of Dr D.G.E. Wood, had previously worked as a forensic scientist in a service which, he used to admit to the students, was totally corrupt.

 

Michael Hutt served on the MRC’s Tropical Medicine Research Board, 1972-76.

Tommy’s was crawling with Top Doctors who were concealing the wrongdoing of Dafydd and his associates, including Dafydd’s mate the Sex Therapist Professor Jim Watson, who had been a Sex Therapist at St George’s before he set up shop at Tommy’s (see post ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’). Dr Death had trained and worked at Tommy’s before he was elected to the Commons. Dr Death was research registrar to William Sargant, a butcher so notorious that psychiatry today is doing all that it can do to forget that he ever existed. Sargant literally tortured his patients and carried out ridiculous and brutal experiments on them killing quite a few in the process. Sargant’s career in a previous branch of medicine had ground to a halt after his excesses had resulted in him landing in trouble; Sargant had a nervous breakdown and then was advised to do what every Top Doctor is advised when they have revealed themselves to be a major liability – to go into psychiatry. Sargant enjoyed himself a great deal with recreational chemicals, which are thought to have caused him to become rather madder than he was originally. See post ‘Dr Death’.

Although Tommy’s is the ultimate bastion of privilege and many of the Top Docs there are the London docs who are making a fortune from their Harley Street practices, there are a few who enjoy casting the illusion that they are Of The Common People, like Ed Miliband’s Uncle Harry. Uncle Harry was a leading light in the Socialist Medical Association (it later changed it’s name to the Socialist Health Association).

The Socialist Medical/Health Association provides a valuable network for Top Docs and many of the seriously guilty have been/are members. Dr John Dunwoody, Labour MP for Falmouth and Camborne, 1966-70, when West Country politicians were well aware of what Jeremy Thorpe was doing, was a member. After losing his seat, Dunwoody returned to medicine in London and among his various roles he served as Chairman of the Kensington, Chelsea and Westminster Area Health Authority, 1977–82, Chairman of the Family Planning Association, 1981–87 and Chairman of the Bloomsbury District Health Authority, 1982–90. From 1996 he was Vice-Chairman of the Merton, Sutton and Wandsworth Local Medical Committee. Dunwoody could not have held those roles without knowing a great deal about the Westminster Paedophile Ring and organised abuse.

John Dunwoody was married to Gwyneth Dunwoody, a leading light among Labour Party Wimmin for many years and the MP for Exeter, 1966-70 and Crewe and Nantwich, 1974-2008. Gwyneth’s parents were two high profile people in the Labour Party in an earlier generation and were mates with Nye Bevan. Dunwoody’s father was Morgan Phillips, the General Secretary of the Labour Party, from south Wales. Gwyneth concealed the Cheshire branch of Dafydd’s gang. Gwyneth and John’s daughter, the terrible Tamsin, was the Labour AM for Preseli Pembrokeshire, 2003-07. See previous posts for more information on the Dunwoodys.

Dr Julian Tudor Hart, a Communist Top Doc of the poshest origins who worked for 30 years as a GP in West Glamorgan, was President of the Socialist Health Association (see post ‘In Memoriam – Dr Julian Tudor Hart’).

Here’s Tudor Spart wearing his revolutionary cap:

In 1986, Dr Brian Gibbons joined Tudor Spart as a partner in the practice. Gibbons too was busy in the Socialist Health Association. Gibbons of course was the AM for Aberavon, 1999-2011 and served as the Welsh Gov’t Health and Social Services Minister, 2005-07, succeeding Jan Hutt in that role. Gibbons was every bit as toxic as Hutt and concealed the criminality and carnage in the NHS in north Wales. When no more excuses could be made for Gibbons, Lesley Griffiths took over as Health and Social Services Minister. Then Edwina Hart had a go at concealing and denying the wreckage – Edwina, being a female Labour politician in Wales had previously done the obligatory stint with Hutt’s ‘gender equality’ charidee, Chwarae Teg (see post ‘Don’t Mess With Daddy’) – and then Mark Drakeford took over as Health and Social Services Minister. Like Jane Hutt and Julie Morgan, Drakeford is a former social worker who served as a South Glamorgan County Councillor and concealed organised abuse. See previous posts.

Tudor Spart conducted epidemiological research with Richard Doll and Archie Cochrane. Richard Doll went to Westminster School and then Tommy’s, graduating in 1937. Doll graduated just a few years before Jane Hutt’s dad did. Tommy’s has a highly effective alumni network, Michael Hutt will have known Richard Doll. I don’t know who Jane Hutt’s mother’s family were, but Hutt’s biography states that her grandparents were Welsh speakers who were from north Wales. Michael Hutt’s biography states that he was born in Shrewsbury to Dorothy nee Peck and Arthur Cyril Hutt, an engineer. It is possible that they were Jane’s Welsh speaking grandparents from north Wales, but I think it more likely that they will have been her maternal grandparents. Despite all the guff talked about social mobility, there is not much of it about, particularly among Wimmin who Campaign on behalf of Wimmin. Someone of Hutt’s vintage who trained as a social worker will almost certainly have been descended from professional people on both sides of her family. Social work was a popular career choice for the not very bright rather drippy girls from middle class families, particularly medical families, in Jane’s day. Which suggests to me that whoever Jane’s Welsh speaking grandparents from north Wales were, they will have been the sort of people who were ignoring what the professional classes were doing to the plebs. No-one in Hutt’s extended family will have wanted Dafydd and the gang exposed. Furthermore, Dafydd’s gang were linked with a gang in Shropshire by the 1970s.

 

Richard Doll’s own father was a Top Doctor. Richard Doll was one of the significant figures in the Socialist Medical Association. The Socialist Medical/Health Association campaigned for the creation of the NHS and Nye Bevan is their hero. The Nye from south Wales who in reality lived it up in Chelsea with his wife Jennie Lee; both Nye and Jennie concealed the neglect and abuse of vulnerable people by the welfare services and because of this, the neglect and abuse of the very poorest was built into the NHS from the start, in contrast to the propaganda. Nye designed the NHS entirely for the benefit of the Top Doctors; he had to, because nearly all of them were completely opposed to the NHS (see previous posts). The Socialist Medical Association wasn’t, but they simply would not ever admit what was happening to some people at the hands of the NHS because the last thing that they wanted to do was give ammunition to their political opponents.

 

Richard Doll joined the Royal College of Physicians after the outbreak of WWII and served for much of the war as part of the RAMC on a hospital ship as a medical specialist. So Doll probably found out about all the Royalty/Lord Louis Mountbatten/sex/spies scandals that so many other Top Docs and other officers discovered when they served on ships in WWII (see post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’).

After the war, Doll returned to Tommy’s. In 1948 he joined a research team under Dr Francis Avery-Jones at the Central Middlesex Hospital run under the auspices of the statistical research unit of the MRC. Over a 21-year career in the unit, Doll rose to become its Director.

Francis Avery Jones was a Welsh Top Doctor – he was born in Carmarthenshire – who was educated at the Sir John Leman High School in Suffolk. He undertook his medical training at Bart’s Hospital Medical School – which is where Lady Juliet Bingley had worked as an almoner (social worker) and where her father had been a surgeon. Avery Jones was born in 1910, so he will have been of the vintage to have known both Lady Juliet and her father. Professor Linford Rees, who concealed the criminality of Dafydd et al in north Wales for many years, worked at Bart’s (see post ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’). Avery Jones worked at the Central Middlesex until 1974. He was also consultant to St Mark’s Hospital, 1948-78 – Lady Juliet also worked at St Mark’s – and to the Royal Navy, 1950-78. So Avery Jones knew about the shenanigans of Lord Mounbatten et al in the Royal Navy and Avery Jones will have known Admiral Sir Alec Bingley and that other surgeon in the Royal Navy, Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain of St George’s Hospital Medical School, a friend of Ollie Brooke. Chamberlain came from south Wales; his father had been Secretary to the Lord Mayor of Cardiff. When Chamberlain retired from the NHS in 2000, he was given a job as a lecturer at Swansea University, an institution virtually run by Rhodri Morgan’s friends and relatives. Just in time for the Waterhouse Report!

Avery Jones Chaired the King Edward VII Hospital Fund Development and Emergency Bed Service Committee – that’s the posh hospital for Royals, of which Lord Simon Glenarthur is/was Chairman. Simon Glenarthur was for years a Director of the MDU. Glenarthur also served as a junior Health Minister under Ken Clarke. It was Simon Glenarthur who was substantially responsible for the ‘tainted blood’ scandal, which resulted in thousands of NHS patients being given infected blood products which caused the death of many people. The Inquiry into the Tainted Blood Scandal has just opened. No-one needs bother with an Inquiry, it is a matter of record who was responsible. It was Dr Death, when he was a junior Health Minister, who knew that using the infected blood products was incredibly dangerous. Dr Death did tell people this but then he didn’t put a stop to it because he was far too busy wanting to be Foreign Secretary and hopefully PM. Simon Glenarthur then oversaw an even greater use of infected blood products on the orders of Thatcher. Glenarthur might not have known what the dangers were, but the Top Doctors did, all of them. Did the BMA campaign? Any  adverts explaining the dangers? No. Not a word. The BMA campaigned very, very loudly on a great many other matters, but there was not one word about thousands and thousands of NHS patients being given infected blood products. It was in the medical press, that’s how I found out about it, but it was nowhere else.

I’ll tell you who else knew about the Tainted Blood Scandal. Red Ken Livingstone. Because Red Ken used to be a medical lab technician and he led their union and Red Ken knew that the MRC lab which screened and treated blood from UK donors to ensure that it was infection free was closed down by Thatch and that infected blood was being purchased from the US for use by the NHS. But then Red Ken knew about Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring from his time at the GLC when all those kids in the care of London Borough Councils were sent to children’s homes in north Wales. See previous posts.

Here’s Ken at Trafalgar Square on an Anti-War Protest:

Ken Livingstone - Anti War Protest - Trafalgar Square ...

 

All the NHS unions knew about the Tainted Blood…

Simon Glenarthur was hanging around in the DoH whilst Jimmy Savile was appointed to the management team of Broadmoor.

 

Francis Avery Jones was on the DHSS’s Advisory Committee on Medical Records. Avery Jones knew that his colleagues were libelling patients as well as forging medical records, so presumably it was dear old Avery Jones who ensured that the decision as to whether to give patients access to their own records had to be made by the Top Doctors ‘with the best interests of the patient’ in mind. Which enabled Dafydd and the paedophiles to simply repeat for nearly 20 years that it was not in my best interests to have access to my records. Because if I did I would have found out that they had detailed their own criminality as well as their plans to frame me and have me imprisoned or banged up in a secure hospital.

Francis Avery Jones was a gastroenterologist. My post ‘Gwlad Y Menig Gwynion’ described how a copy of a 1988 application of mine for a research job in gastroenterology turned up in my medical records. The application was not for a job in Wales, so I wonder how the paedophiles’ friends got their paws on it.

Francis Avery Jones died in Chichester in 1998. Chichester is 28 miles away from Brighton, the scene of the firebomb attack in 1992 which killed five witnesses to the criminality of the paedophiles’ friends in north Wales. John Allen owned brothels in Brighton to which the kids in care from north Wales were trafficked.

The Central Middlesex Hospital borders Brent – the location of a paedophile ring as well as a hub of neglect and abuse in the mental health and children’s services (see post ‘Mary Turner – An Appreciation’). Red Ken was elected as the Labour MP for Brent East in June 1987. Three months after the publication of the Waterhouse Report, Ken became the 1st Mayor of London!

Paul Boateng was elected as the Labour MP for Brent South in June 1987. The Paul Boateng who was a solicitor for Birnberg & Co when they handled the first part of Mary Wynch’s litigation against Dafydd and Clwyd Health Authority. The Paul Boateng who’s wife Janet was a social worker in Lambeth when that Borough was sending kids in it’s care to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales. Janet doubled up as the Councillor who Chaired the Social Services Committee as well and was in that post when Tyra Henry was murdered while in the care of Lambeth Social Services. Paul and Janet’s son was convicted of rape, so Boateng has that in common with the man who is currently the favourite to become Wales’s next FM:

Mark Drakeford - National Assembly for Wales.jpg

 

Paul’s colleague Harriet Harman used to work at Brent Law Centre, as did Harriet’s husband Jack Dromey, a trade unionist who later became a Labour MP. Harriet’s dad John was a Harley Street Top Doctor. Dr John B. Harman studied at Tommy’s and later became a consultant there. John Harman served in the RAMC during WWII. When he retired in 1972, John Harman became President of the MDU. John Harman went to Oundle School, which has many famous alumni (see previous posts), including Sir Clough Williams-Ellis. Sir Clough married into the Bloomsbury Set and he owned the Brondanw estate at Llanfrothen/Croesor, where throughout the middle years of the 20th century he hosted many members of the Bloomsbury Set during the summer. They were joined by a sizeable group of intellectuals, radicals and political activists and Clough’s aristocratic friends, including Bertrand Russell. Most of them knew about Dafydd and the gang but because it was usually only the locals who were having their lives ruined by Dafydd et al, no-one was that bothered. Dafydd proved useful on one occasion when the wife of one of Clough’s circle had a pregnancy which was inconvenient to her partner once he ran off with another woman. She was banged up in Denbigh and didn’t emerge until the mid-1980s, when she was housed near Betws-y-Coed, at a very safe distance from Croesor and well away from anyone who might have remembered what happened to her. See post ‘The Village’. Betrand Russell himself made good use of Top Doctors to declare members of his family mad when they accused him of being a wicked old bugger who was doing some very unsavoury things. See post ‘So Who Was Angry About What?’

Jonathan Miller, the Top Doctor, Opera Director, Polymath and Top Tosser, worked for Avery Jones when Miller was a junior Top Doc in the late 50s/early 60s. Miller’s dad Emmanuel Miller was one of the first child psychiatrists. Many of Jonathan’s vast network of BBC people, Top Docs, celebs, intellectuals and others assisted in concealing the wrongdoing of Dafydd and those associated with Dafydd. Jonathan himself was involved with a most helpful series of TV programmes entitled ‘Madness’ in 1991, which was another bit of good PR for the Top Doctors, just as the North Wales Police had begun an investigation into the possibility of a VIP paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire. One of my media friends who was hounded out of his job at the BBC in the early 1990s when his wife wanted to make a film about what was happening in north Wales worked with Jonathan’s son William Miller at the BBC in the 1980s. My friend used to maintain that William was ‘really fucked up’ as a result of living in Jonathan’s shadow. Years later William Miller gave media interviews in which he said pretty much the same thing himself. Despite being So Clever that even Robert Robinson would be impressed, Jonathan somehow missed the presence of Jimmy Savile at the BBC and as Savile mingled among the Top Doctors. Savile visited Bryn Estyn as well and one boy maintained that Savile witnessed him sexually assaulted by a group of men there. But Jonathan is far too important to have worried about minor details like that. For more info on Jonathan and the many friends of his who have many questions to answer, see previous posts eg. ‘The International Language Of Screaming’.

 

Richard Doll’s pal Francis Avery Jones didn’t die until 1998, so he was around until well into the Waterhouse Inquiry to assist Dafydd et al in their hour of need.

In 1950, Richard Doll, along with Sir Austin ‘Tony’ Bradford Hill, undertook with a study of lung cancer patients in 20 London hospitals and found that tobacco smoking was the common link. The findings were published in the BMJ in 1950 and Doll famously wrote that:

The risk of developing the disease increases in proportion to the amount smoked. It may be 50 times as great among those who smoke 25 or more cigarettes a day as among non-smokers.

I have not done a David Healy and revisited this study, so the work may be absolutely sound as far as I know. However I am struck by the very quick turnaround. A study undertaken, written up AND published all in the same year? Things might have been different in 1950 – indeed they were, Gwynne killed people with his lobotomies and the figures weren’t even recorded – but that still strikes me as surprising.

Four years later, in 1954 the British doctors study, a study of some 40 thousand doctors over 20 years, confirmed the suggestion, based on which the Gov’t issued advice, that smoking and lung cancer rates were related.

In 1955 Doll reported a case controlled study that firmly established the relationship between asbestos and lung cancer.

Let us take a look at Doll’s colleague Sir Austin. Son of Sir Leonard Erskine Hill, a ‘distinguished physiologist’, Hill was born in London and was educated at Chigwell School, Essex. Hill was associated with the medical statistician Major Greenwood and, to improve his statistical knowledge, Hill attended lectures by Karl Pearson. When Greenwood accepted a Chair at the newly formed London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Hill moved with him, becoming Professor of Medical Statistics in 1947.

Hill had a distinguished career in research and teaching but he is famous for two landmark studies. He was the statistician on the MRC Streptomycin in Tuberculosis Trials Committee, work which is generally accepted as the first randomised clinical trial (RCT). The second study was more precisely a series of studies, those with Richard Doll on smoking and lung cancer. Doll and Hill’s conclusions from their British Doctors study was severely criticised from 1957 onward, in published work and in academia by Sir Ronald Aylmer Fisher. 

Fisher was the statistician and geneticist who had pioneered many of the statistical techniques used by Doll and Hill. Fisher’s work in statistics led to him being described as “a genius who almost single-handedly created the foundations for modern statistical science” and “the single most important figure in 20th century statistics”. In genetics, Fisher used maths to combine Mendelian genetics and natural selection; this contributed to the revival of Darwinism in the early 20th-century modern synthesis revision of the theory of evolution. Fisher has been called “the greatest of Darwin’s successors”.

Fisher looks like he knew what he was doing:

Sir Ronald Fisher FRS
Youngronaldfisher2.JPG

 

However, Sir Austin Bradford Hill wore a bow tie like the Top Doctors did so he might have been more convincing:

Austin Bradford Hill
Austin Bradford Hill.jpg

 

Hill was made a fellow of the Royal Society in 1954 and perhaps surprisingly, Fisher was actually one of the proposers. The certificate of election read

Has, by the application of statistical methods, made valuable contributions to our knowledge of the incidence and aetiology of industrial diseases, of the effects of internal migration upon mortality rates, and of the natural and experimental epidemiology of various infections, for example of the risks of an attack of poliomyelitis following inoculation procedures and of the risk of congenital abnormalities being precipitated by maternal rubella in the pregnant woman. Since the war he has demonstrated in an exact and controlled field survey the association between cigarette smoking and the incidence of cancer of the lung, and has been the leader in the development in medicine of the precise experimental methods now used nationally and internationally in the evaluation of new therapeutic and prophylactic agents.

I have not yet had time to dig into why Fisher proposed the man who’s work he considered so flawed to the Royal Society. There was no doubt skulduggery involved. Hill certainly did OK for himself though.

In 1950–52 Hill was President of the Royal Statistical Society. On Hill’s death the medical statistician Peter Armitage wrote, “to anyone involved in medical statistics, epidemiology or public health, Bradford Hill was quite simply the world’s leading medical statistician.”

In 1965, Hill suggested several aspects of causality in medicine and biology, which have remained in use by epidemiologists to date.

What with Austin Bradford Hill being an all-round statistical genius and working with Richard Doll, one would have thought that Sir Austin would have noticed a few worrying things about Wales as he number crunched his way through medicine. Hill died in 1991 so he was alive and kicking when that laughable paper written by Dafydd’s mates on which Richard Doll advised was published in the ‘British Journal of Cancer’.

Surely Hill noticed that sample of three, even if it escaped Richard Doll’s attention?

In 1966 Richard Doll was elected to the Royal Society himself. The citation stated:

Doll is distinguished for his researches in epidemiology, and particularly the epidemiology of cancer where in the last 10 years he has played a prominent part in (a) elucidating the causes of lung cancer in industry (asbestos, nickel & coal tar workers) & more generally, in relation to cigarette smoking, and (b) in the investigation of leukaemia particularly in relation to radiation, where using the mortality of patients treated with radiotherapy he has reached a quantitative estimate of the leukaemogenic effects of such radiation. In clinical medicine he has made carefully controlled trials of treatments for gastric ulcer. He has been awarded the United Nations prize for outstanding research into the causes & control of cancer & the Bisset Hawkins medal of the Royal College of Physicians for his contributions to preventive medicine.

Dafydd’s friends. A sample of three. One of whom did not have the disease which was under investigation.

In 1969 Sir Richard Doll moved to Oxford University, as the Regius Professor of Medicine. Initially, epidemiology was held in low regard, but in his time at Oxford Sir Richard helped reverse this.

More than 20 years later: A sample of three. Well two actually, because one person in the sample of three had a different condition.

Richard Doll was the primary agent behind the creation of Green College, which was founded in 1979. Doll was appointed the first Warden of Green College, from where he retired in 1983. Doll was succeeded as Warden of Green College by Dafydd’s mate, the Bastard of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Lord John Walton. Walton was a Top Doctor who pretty much ran both Noewcastle-upon-Tyne University and the city itself, throughout the decades when a trafficking ring which sent kids in care and staff to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales operated in the north east of England. John Walton kept Dafydd and his associates out of trouble throughout his career, particularly in Walton’s capacity as President of the BMA, 1980-82; President of the GMC, 1982-89 (as the very serious complaints about Dafydd’s criminality came in by the sackful but were all ignored); and President of the Royal Society of Medicine, 1984-86. Walton received a peerage in 1989. What can someone have been so grateful to him for?

In 1992 Walton became a member of Parliament’s Science and Technology Committee, leaving in 1996, returning in 1997 and leaving again in 2001. Walton tended to be on that Committee every time that there was a bit of high drama with Dafydd and the gang then. From 1993-94, Walton was Chair of the Medical Ethics Committee. He was Secretary of the Rare Diseases Group from 2009 until his death. Walton was a member of the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters. He was Patron of The Little Foundation, Honorary Life President of the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign, Vice President of Parkinson’s UK and Honorary Chairman of the United Kingdom Medical Students’ Association (UKMSA).

Walton died in 2016. He remained silent throughout every investigation and inquiry relating to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. He said not a word about the scandals involving organised abuse in other parts of the UK, not even about the Sunderland and Cleveland Scandals which happened just down the road from his turf. He was sitting in the Lords when that joke of a paper based on the sample of three as advised by Richard Doll was touted in the media as being the work of ground-breakers leading the field.

John Walton scowled his way throughout it all:

The Lord Walton of Detchant Kt

Richard Doll also helped found the National Blood Service and was key in avoiding a system of paying donors for their blood, as had been adopted in the US. Yet Doll was one of the mass of Top Doctors who remained silent when Thatch closed down the MRC lab and ordered the purchase of infected blood from the US…

Doll continued work at the Imperial Cancer Research Centre at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, working as part of the Clinical Trial Service Unit, notably including a study undertaken with Sir Richard Peto, in which it was estimated that tobacco, along with infections and diet, caused between them three quarters of all cancers, which was the basis of much of the WHO’s conclusions on environmental pollution and cancer.

Sir Richard Peto is Professor of Medical Statistics and Epidemiology at Oxford University. He attended Taunton’s School in Southampton and subsequently studied the Natural Sciences Tripos at Queen’s College, Cambridge, followed by a Masters in Statistics at Imperial College.

Peto’s career included collaborations with Richard Doll which began at the MRC Statistical Research Unit in London. Peto set up the Clinical Trial Service Unit (CTSU) in Oxford in 1975 and is currently Co-director. Peto’s paradox is named after him. That particular paradox isn’t half such a paradox as all these world leading medical statisticians who missed a trafficking gang publishing utter rubbish after being advised by Richard Doll.

Peto was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1989 for his contributions to the development of meta-analysis. He is a leading expert on deaths related to tobacco use. Richard Peto was knighted for his services to epidemiology and to cancer prevention in 1999, just before the Waterhouse Report was published. Peto received an honorary Doctor of Medical Sciences degree from Yale University in 2011.

Richard’s brother Julian Peto, with whom he has published work in mathematical statistics (e.g. on the logrank test), is also a distinguished epidemiologist. The Peto family run a Thai restaurant in the Covered Market, Oxford, of whose parent company Richard Peto is a Director.

 

When he was young, Richard Doll considered himself a socialist, but by the 2005 General Election he was a supporter of the Lib Dems.

Throughout his entire career, like Air Austin Bradford Hill, Sir Richard Doll remained schtum throughout the investigations and inquiries into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal, in spite of his links with some of those at the scene of the crime. Sir Richard didn’t die until 2005, so he had plenty of opportunities to ask a few salient questions.

Sir Richard ‘A Sample Of Three’ Doll

After Richard Doll’s death, some controversy arose over aspects of his research funding when his papers, held at the Wellcome Library, indicated that for many years he had received consultancy payments from chemical companies whose products he was to defend in court. These include US$1,500 per day consultancy fee from Monsanto Company for a relationship which began in 1976 and continued until 2002. During this period Doll wrote to a Royal Commission in Australia investigating whether the Monsanto-produced herbicide Agent Orange, which was used during the Vietnam War, was carcinogenic, claiming that there was no evidence that it caused cancer.

Richard Doll received £15,000 from the Chemical Manufactures Association, Dow Chemicals and ICI for a review published in 1988 that concluded that workplace exposure to vinyl chloride did not increase the chance of contracting cancer, with the exception of angiosarcoma of the liver, contradicting two previous reviews by the WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer. Some donations, including a £50,000 gift from asbestos company Turner and Newall, were given in public ceremony to Green College, Oxford, but most fees and payments remained undisclosed to the public, Oxford University and colleagues until Doll’s death.

Doll’s defenders point out that his connections to industry were widely known by those in the field, that he did his work before formal disclosure of commercial interests became commonplace and that on occasion, he came to conclusions that were unpalatable to the companies who consulted him. His own view, as reported by Richard Peto, was that it was necessary to co-operate with companies for access to data which could prove their products to be dangerous.

Doll co-operated with a murdering trafficking gang as well Peto, but it didn’t prove that their products were dangerous. It made them a laughing stock when someone pointed out that sample of three, but they all merrily continued on their way; one of them spent the next two decades as the Stats Guru of the School of Psychology at Bangor University and another one led NWORTH, the Clinical Trials Unit at Bangor University. They now run a consultancy together. See post ‘They Think It’s All Over – It Is Now’.

Some controversy arose over the fact that Doll did not publish a paper on ‘A tentative estimate of the leukaemogenic effects of test thermonuclear explosions’ in the Journal of Radiation Protection in 1955 which stated that ‘there is no threshold [radiation] dose below which no effect is produced’ in humans. He withdrew it on advice from the Sir Harold Himswoth, Secretary of the MRC, who in turn was advised by the Atomic Energy Authority not to publish because it would be contrary to their interests. It was only published in 1996 when this kind of view was more acceptable view to the Nuclear Industry.

Before Dafydd began his degree in medicine at Liverpool University, he worked at Windscale. Dafydd worked there just before the nuclear accident at Windscale in 1957, which involved a cover-up on the part of Macmillan’s Gov’t. Dafydd knew about much wrongdoing at Windscale and used it to his advantage for a very long time. See post ‘Those Who Are Ready To Serve’. It is no coincidence that every time British Gov’ts have tried to reign the Top Docs in, they have appointed nuclear physicists to do this eg. Sir Alec Merrison and Lord Brian Flowers (see previous posts). Nuclear physicists have told as many lies to the nation as Top Docs have and are just about the only professional group who can get the Top Docs by the knackers; it will have helped that Dafydd was involved with whatever was going on at Windscale in the 1950s.

 

So what of Archie Cochrane, who worked with Doll et al? I discussed Archie Cochrane in my post ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy…’ Archie Cochrane was a Scottish Top Doctor who was famous for advocating the use of randomized control trials (RCTs) to make medicine more effective and efficient. His advocacy of RCTs eventually led to the development of the Cochrane Library database of systematic reviews, the establishment of the UK Cochrane Centre in Oxford and the international Cochrane Collaboration. Archie Cochrane is known as one of the fathers of modern clinical epidemiology and evidence-based medicine and is considered to be the originator of the idea of evidence-based medicine in the current era.

Cochrane was born near Galashiels, Scotland. He attended Uppingham School and then studied at King’s College, Cambridge. Cochrane completed his medical training in 1938 at UCH and UCL. 

During the Spanish Civil War, Cochrane served as a member of a British Ambulance Unit within the Spanish Medical Aid Committee. In WWII he joined the British Army and was captured during the Battle of Crete and subsequently worked as a Medical Officer at Salonika (Greece) and Hildburghausen, Elsterhorst and Wittenberg an der Elbe (Germany) PoW camps. His experience in the camp led him to believe that much of medicine did not have sufficient evidence to justify its use.

Cochrane said, ‘I knew that there was no real evidence that anything we had to offer had any effect on tuberculosis, and I was afraid that I shortened the lives of some of my friends by unnecessary intervention.’ As a result, he spent his career urging the medical community to adopt the scientific method.

After WWII Cochrane studied for a Diploma in Public Health at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and and spent a year at the Henry Phipps Institute in Philadelphia on a Rockefeller Fellowship.

Cochrane then joined the MRC’s Pneumoconiosis Unit at Llandough Hospital, a part of the Welsh National School of Medicine, now Cardiff University School of Medicine, in 1948. Here Cochrane began a series of studies on the health of the population of Rhonda Fach, studies which pioneered the use of RCTs.

Dafydd’s mate Kenneth Rawnsley, who began his career working with the maddest of the mad Top Doctors at the Maudsley and who also worked with Dafydd’s mad mates at Manchester, worked with Archie Cochrane on Cochrane’s community studies in south Wales. Rawnsley seemed to ignore everything that Cochrane was teaching about RCTs and the scientific method, but that didn’t stop Rawnsley ending up as Head of the MRC Unit in south Wales, under the Director, the crazed Sir Aubrey Lewis from the Maudsley.

For a detailed account of Rawnsley and the many other quite mad and highly abusive Top Doctors who were mates with and worked with Dafydd and who subsequently circulated around London, Manchester and south Wales, spinning myths about their own ‘excellence’ while Dafydd did whatever he wanted in north Wales, see post ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy…’ Archie Cochrane may have pursued scientific rigour but he most definitely did not ensure that those with whom he worked did.

Cardiff University has released an online video of the Rhondda Fach studies. The video shows some archive footage of the community study. Cochrane describes what he was looking for in the surveys. Somehow Cochrane missed the obvious…

In 1960 Cochrane was appointed Professor of Tuberculosis and Chest Diseases at the Welsh National School of Medicine and nine years later became Director of the new MRC’s Epidemiology Research Unit at 4 Richmond Road, Cardiff. His groundbreaking paper on validation of medical screening procedures, published jointly with fellow epidemiologist Walter W. Holland in 1971, became a classic in the field.

Cochrane’s 1971 Rock Carling Fellowship monograph Effectiveness and Efficiency: Random Reflections on Health Services, first published in 1972 by the Nuffield Provincial Hospitals Trust — now known as the Nuffield Trust, was very influential. To quote from the book’s summary :

“An investigation into the workings of the clinical sector of the NHS strongly suggests that the simplest explanation of the findings is that this sector is subject to severe inflation with the output rising much less than would be expected from the input”. According to a review in the British Medical Journal, “the hero of the book is the randomized control trial, and the villains are the clinicians in the “care” part of the NHS who either fail to carry out such trials or succeed in ignoring the results if they do not fit in with their own preconceived ideas”.

Maintaining this challenge to the medical care system as Cochrane saw it, in 1978, with colleagues, he published a study of 18 developed countries in which he made the following observations: “the indices of health care are not negatively associated with mortality, and there is a marked positive association between the prevalence of doctors and mortality in the younger age groups. No explanation of this doctor anomaly has so far been found. Gross national product per head is the principal variable which shows a consistently strong negative association with mortality.” 

So Cochrane knew that somehow the Top Doctors were killing people, but he didn’t speculate further.

This work was selected for inclusion in a compendium of influential papers, from historically important epidemiologists, published by the Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO/WHO) in 1988.

Cochrane promoted the randomised trial and is a co-author with Professor Peter Elwood on a report on the first randomised trial of aspirin in the prevention of vascular disease. He also promoted the cohort study and was a key adviser in a highly detailed cohort study: the Caerphilly Heart Disease Study, which was based on a representative population sample of 2,375 middle-aged men, with a response rate of 89%.

Archie died in 1988, the year that the ridiculous paper written by Dafydd’s mates was submitted to the ‘British Journal of Cancer’.

Like so many others with whom he worked, Archie was another Great Man and Founding Father who knew about Dafydd and the gang and the associated serious criminality. Archie knew that by the mid-1980s the cancer caused by that gang had spread throughout the whole of the UK medical establishment and that there was no Top Doctor or barely any lawyers or politicians who would take them on.

How could so many people have been so weak and so stupid?

For his “gallant and distinguished” services in PoW camps, Archie was awarded an MBE; for his contributions to epidemiology he was later awarded the CBE. If Archie had raised even one concern about a gang of paedophiles he’d have received neither.

One Man’s Medicine: An Autobiography of Professor Archie Cochrane was published in 1989 and co-authored by Max Blythe. The book was out of print for a number of years but a paperback edition was published by Cardiff University in April 2009 to celebrate the centenary of Cochrane’s birth. The Archie Cochrane Archive is held at the Archie Cochrane Library, Cardiff University.

Oh for God’s sake when Dafydd snuffs it why not give him a state funeral and then erect a statue of him in Westminster?

 

Just to recap on a few things that have been detailed in previous posts which were happening between Dafydd’s pals beginning their ludicrous ‘research’ on bracken, buttermilk and gastric cancer and it being published in the ‘British Journal of Cancer’.

During those years, I and three other witnesses to the criminality in north Wales were systematically hounded out of our careers. Two of those people, my best friend from school and her husband, literally found themselves under attack by gangsters (see post ‘The Turn Of The Screw’).

When the bracken/gastric cancer paper was being planned, I had just begun a career in cancer research myself. I working in the Cancer Research Campaign team at the University of Surrey for Professor Vincent Marks who was the brother of Dr John Marks, the President of the BMA. At the time, the BMA were providing Tony Francis and the gang in north Wales with legal advice with regard to having me charged and imprisoned, although the BMA knew about the trafficking gang in north Wales and knew that Francis et al had no evidence for their very serious allegations against me. The BMA were in an all out war with Ken Clarke at the DoH at the time. No-one won because the whole lot of them were concealing Dafydd et al and none of them would use the evidence that I and my friends had to arrest and charge Dafydd and his associates.

While I was working at Surrey, Dr Peter Macguire, a former psychiatrist colleague of Tony Francis’s, suddenly decided that he was going to become a cancer researcher. Macguire and some colleagues extracted funding from the Cancer Research Campaign and the ICRF (Richard Doll worked with the ICRF) and perpetrated a research fraud which was exposed in 1990 and resulted in the suicide of one of the members of their team, Prof Tim McElwain (see post ‘Reports Of Death Were Greatly Exaggerated’). None of this held the careers of the other people involved in the fraud back, they went on to become high profile names in cancer research, except for Clair Chilvers, the lead author of the dodgy paper, who metamorphosed into a mental health researcher and also became Chair of an NHS Trust (see post ‘Apocalypse Now’).

Those we know and love had another close shave soon after Ollie was released from prison in May 1987. Jeffery Archer, one of Sir Peter Morrison’s colleagues in Thatcher’s Gov’t, who had found himself the centre of a tabloid expose maintaining that he had paid a prostitute for sex, sued the Star for libel. The libel trial was in July 1987. Jeffrey and Lady Mary perjured themselves during the trial, but it paid off and they won the case. That libel trial took place while Dafydd’s gang were in the process of trying to stitch me up and imprison me. Jeffrey and Mary were of course later exposed as having lied in their evidence and Jeffrey was subsequently charged and jailed in 2001. Monica, the prostitute involved in the case, was due to give evidence at Tuppence’s trial but was most conveniently killed in a car crash shortly before the trial opened. Lady Mary was never charged with perjury herself, she continued running Addenbrooke’s Hospital and swathes of the Cambridgeshire NHS. For the links between Tuppence, Lady Mary and Dafydd and his associates, see post ‘Tuppence And His Fragrant Wife’.

I mentioned that by 1987, the police were beginning to take an interest in Frank Beck and Greville Janner in Leicestershire. Someone who knew all about Dafydd and the gang as well as most of the rest of the Westminster Paedophile Ring was the barrister George Carman QC, who acted for Jeremy Thorpe and was retained by Greville Janner and Jimmy Savile. Carman was a violent alcoholic who was also corrupt and hung around with gangsters, bent coppers and sex workers. Carman was based in Manchester throughout the 1960s and 70s and lived in Cheshire. He made his name when he successfully defended Jeremy Thorpe in 1979 and at that point he moved to London. However by the early 1980s Carman was fed up with the UK and was about to take up a judicial appointment in Hong Kong. He changed his mind at the last minute when he was staying in Leicester in 1981 as a result of defending a Top Doctor, Leonard Arthur, who was on trial for murdering a baby with Down’s syndrome after an Angel blew the whistle. Carman never explained what it was that happened during his weeks in Leicester which caused him to stay in the UK, but over the following years Carman’s reputation grew and grew, he became very rich as well as the best known libel barrister in the UK. When Carman was dying, he was visited in person on a number of occasions by Professor Gordon McVie, who persuaded Carman to part with dosh for the Cancer Research Campaign. McVie will have known even more than I did about the large scale research fraud in cancer research. George Carman was such a heavy drinker that he had his own Top Doc on call who was known to have set up drips for him in Court after he had collapsed. For the last part of his life, Carman lived in Wimbledon. He was a neighbour of Geoffrey Chamberlain and other Top Docs at St George’s. See previous posts for more information on George Carman.

Despite having George Carman on tap, people in Leicester must have got a little jumpy because reinforcements were called in. A young lawyer, Keith Vaz, who was eager to help, relocated to Leicester and was subsequently elected as the Labour MP for Leicester East at the 1987 General Election! Keith had previously been the senior solicitor for Islington Borough Council, where a paedophile ring with links to north Wales operated and before that, Keith had been a solicitor for Richmond-upon-Thames Council – where a paedophile ring with links to north Wales had operated! Keith didn’t trudge up to Leicester all alone. Keith took his mum with him who subsequently sat on Leicester City Council. When Frank Beck was jailed in 1991 for hundreds of sexual assaults on kids in care over a period of years, Leicester City Council were accused of being complicit with Beck’s crimes. As were the police and the Social Services. I know for a fact that the Top Doctors and Leicester University were fully complicit as well. See previous posts.

George Carman had a pupil barrister who later became famous. A man called Tony Blair. Miranda was elected as MP for Sedgefield in Co Durham – on Lord John Walton’s manor – in 1983. Cherie continued to work in Carman’s chambers until 1988. When George Carman held his garden parties at Wimbledon years later, Miranda and Cherie were kind enough to drop in, although Miranda was PM by then and Cherie was ‘juggling’, as she explained when she was caught out doing those crooked property deals with Carole Caplin’s boyfriend.

When that nonsense about bracken and buttermilk was being penned by Dafydd’s mates, Miranda was part of the Windbag’s Shadow Energy team along with Rhodri The Real Ale Twat. It was when Miranda was in that team that his ‘talents’ were spotted and from then on the sky was the limit for Miranda. Who was one of the Minister’s whom Miranda shadowed in Energy? Sir Peter Morrison…

Miranda touched my own life in 2005 when the brother-in-law of Miranda’s No 10 policy adviser John McTernan stole my computer. See previous posts.

 

As for the cauldron in south Wales, with its mixture of thick opportunistic politicians and privileged abusive Top Doctors boiling away, all claiming to be working on behalf of the Oppressed while they stood by and watched the Oppressed slaughtered, there are two more characters whom I mentioned in my post ‘Don’t Mess With Daddy’ to whom I shall briefly return here: Dr Hywel Francis, who was Labour MP for Aberavon, 2001-15, before he handed the seat over to the Windbag’s son and Hywel’s dad Dai.

I mentioned previously how Hywel Francis, an academic who was a student at, and who was then was employed as, an academic at Swansea University, is a man who prides himself on he and his dad’s Communist Party pasts and waxes lyrical about miners and trade unionism and hard labour but who writes columns for ‘The Guardian’ and ingratiates himself to the Top Doctors. The secret of Hywel’s paradoxes lies in his dad’s biography.

Dai Francis (1911–1981) was a Welsh trade unionist, best remembered for his leadership of the South Wales NUM during the 1970s. Dai was a member of the Gorsedd of the Bards, as are Hywel and many of Dafydd’s mates. Dai Francis was born near Neath. He became the first officer of the South Wales Miners’ Union in 1959 and in 1963 became its General Secretary. In 1974 Dai became the first Chairman of the Wales TUC. So although Dai got much kudos from being a miners’ leader when the miners did battle with Ted Heath and brought him down, Dai’s role as Chairman of the Wales TUC will have given him the most powerful muscle of all – his knowledge of what the NHS/social care trade unions were concealing. Dafydd and the associated gangs…

Dai also knew that the beginnings of the NHS were rather more sordid than we are told, because he was involved with the miners’ welfare associations before the NHS came into being. Dai will have known about Nye and Jenny buying off the Top Docs while Nye and Jenny shopped at Harrods. They didn’t hang around south Wales for long.

Dai retired in 1976 and in the same year unsuccessfully challenged Carlo in the election for Chancellor of the University of Wales. I don’t know who ensured that Carlo won, but if Dai had became Chancellor, his main responsibility of course would have been to make sure that the whole of UCNW continued to double up as a major branch of Dafydd’s trafficking gang. Of course, by 1976, Sir Peter Morrison had become MP for Chester and what with Sir Peter’s sister Dame Mary being Woman-of-the-Bedchamber to Carlo’s mum, someone probably thought that it was less risky to have Carlo overseeing UCNW than a Communist with the dirt on everyone who also had an ambitious son.

The paedophiles’ friends being what they are, they never stop scrapping among themselves. There was so much infighting at UCNW that in 1979, Dafydd Wigley, then the Plaid MP for Caernarfon who’s constituency office was just around the corner from Paedophilia HQ at the offices of Gwynedd County Council, asked Shirley Williams, in her capacity as Secretary of State for Education in Jim Callaghan’s Gov’t, to hold an Inquiry into the management of UCNW by the then Principal, Sir Charles Evans, Top Doctor and 1953 Everest Hero. There was no Inquiry which was hardly surprising, because everyone involved knew that the havoc prevailing was because the College had been taken over by a trafficking gang and furthermore Carlo was the Chancellor. Why Dafydd Wigley even pretended that he wanted an Inquiry I do not know, because if that gang had ever been exposed, Wigley would have lost his seat which was one of the safest in the country, what with just about every professional person in Gwynedd colluding with that gang. 1979 was the year in which Mary Wynch was unlawfully imprisoned by Dafydd; Mary worked as a Secretary in the Dept of Agriculture in UCNW. Was that something to do with the request for an Inquiry? If an Inquiry had have happened, the results of any Inquiry would only have shouldered the responsibility for the chaos onto the least guilty party…

 

While Dafydd’s pals at UCNW were writing their paper for the ‘British Journal of Cancer Research’, Alison Taylor wrote to Carlo and told him that children in care in north Wales were being abused. Carlo’s office wrote back to Alison and said that Carlo couldn’t get involved. Which is a little odd in that many of the staff at UCNW were facilitating the gang which abused the kids and furthermore Carlo has a well-established reputation for getting involved in all sorts of things. Including getting involved in lending money and supplying accommodation to Bishops who have been caught sexually abusing young people.

Gwynedd County Council had sacked Alison in Dec 1987 so Carlo probably thought that Lucille had found the best way of dealing with it. Now there just needed to be a Final Solution for my friends and I…

 

Hywel Francis’s claim to fame is that he is the first in his family for five generations not to go down the mines. Of course you didn’t Hywel, your dad had all the shit on the Top Doctors, George Thomas and much more besides. I’m only surprised that you weren’t given a peerage as soon as you hit 21 yrs old.

 

When I googled Dai Francis, I got lots and lots of results for another Dai Francis. One of the Black and White Minstrels no less.

David Healy arrived in north Wales shortly after the ‘British Journal of Cancer’ published the idiocy of Dafydd’s mates. So finally north Wales had a Top Doctor who could count and add up.

There is one Top Doctor in north Wales who is pretty much hated by nearly all the other Top Doctors and there have been a number of serious attempts to stop him practising. It is not Dafydd. It is David Healy.

 

How does medicine ever come back from this?

 

 

 

Mỹ Lai Massacre
Thảm sát Mỹ Lai
My Lai massacre.jpg

 

South Vietnamese women and children in Mỹ Lai before being killed in the massacre, 16 March 1968. According to court testimony, they were killed seconds after the photo was taken. The woman on the right is adjusting her blouse buttons following a sexual assault that happened before the massacre.

An unidentified man and child who were killed on a road.
‘The villagers, who were getting ready for a market day, at first did not panic or run away, and they were herded into the hamlet’s commons. Harry Stanley, a machine gunner from Charlie Company, said during the US Army Criminal Investigation Division inquiry that the killings started without warning. He first observed a member of 1st Platoon strike a Vietnamese man with a bayonet. Then, the same trooper pushed another villager into a well and threw a grenade in the well. Next, he saw fifteen or twenty people, mainly women and children, kneeling around a temple with burning incense. They were praying and crying. They were all killed by shots in the head.’
‘A large group of approximately 70–80 villagers was rounded up by 1st Platoon in Xom Lang and led to an irrigation ditch east of the settlement. All detainees were pushed into the ditch and then killed after repeated orders issued by Lieutenant Calley, who was also shooting. PFC Paul Meadlo testified that he expended several M16 magazines. He recollected that women were allegedly saying “No VC” and were trying to shield their children. He remembered that he was shooting into women with babies in their hands since he was convinced at that time that they were all booby-trapped with grenades and were poised to attack. On another occasion during the security sweep of My Lai, Meadlo again fired into civilians side-by-side with Lieutenant Calley.’

It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not ‘Arf

Here is yet another post that I hadn’t planned to write, but which has resulted from a number of recent e mails from readers after I began blogging about the Top Docs of north Wales who formed a cartel to unlawfully prevent women accessing NHS abortions in the region throughout the 1970s and 80s. Women were told that if they wanted an NHS abortion they had to be admitted to the North Wales Hospital Denbigh to be ‘assessed’ by Dafydd, after which they would be refused a termination anyway. However, any woman who agreed to pay could access abortion on demand at a ‘private clinic’ in Chester.

My post ‘I Predict A Riot’ discussed the written information which was given to female students when they arrived at UCNW (Bangor University) informing them of the situation, information which included a paragraph about ‘care’ of oneself after the termination and the ‘problems’ encountered by a few previous students which suggested that the abortions at the unidentified ‘private clinic’ were not safe and that women’s lives were being put at risk.

The only private clinic in Chester registered to provide terminations from 1981 onward was the Grosvenor Nuffield, which was also the hospital where Dafydd conducted ‘clinics’. The Grosvenor Nuffield dispensed with Dafydd’s services in the late 1980s or early 90s, but I don’t know which aspect of Dafydd caused them to finally pull the plug on him.

I e mailed Brown yesterday to ask him if he thought that the Grosvenor Nuffield would be putting women at such risk or whether abortions might have been taking place somewhere else in Chester as well.

Brown observed: ‘One of the first things that the freshers got at Bangor university was material about abortions, which seemed to me to be a rather negative note to start your university experience on. But with some of the background up there it is perhaps rather more understandable. There’s no reason why it wouldn’t be undertaken in a Nuffield hospital, as in the 1970s and 1980s almost all private hospitals were called some sort of ‘Nuffield’.  It was only in the late 1980s that some of the new start-ups were called BUPA hospitals. The standard of care, while more expensive, wouldn’t have been any better. It was a bit like people going to former eastern bloc countries for health care now, where things like joint replacements and dental implants led to major bleeds and hard-to-treat infections. So with perfunctory treatment and limited aftercare it’s not surprising that there were complications. Not to mention the rather judgemental attitude of many heath care personnel who were more than happy to make sure  that this sort of thing yielded maximum pain, humiliation and inconvenience for the patients.’

I suspect that the last sentence of the above paragraph is spot on, because no-one I know at UCNW ever discussed their experiences, although the Student Health Centre continually packed students off to the ‘private clinic’ in Chester. I was never one of the students who spent hours in the kitchen of our hall of residence hugging a mug of coffee and discussing my Experiences As A Woman, but I was always chatting and socialising under the radar with a variety of people, both students and locals and I heard about much wrongdoing. As I mentioned previously, I never ever found out who was performing the illegal abortions in the region, although I knew that they were taking place.

Last night I had an e mail from a woman who grew up in north Wales, who told me that she had been abused at locations familiar to me and she also told me that as a teenager she was packed off to Chester for an abortion, but she definitely was not taken to the Grosvenor Nuffield. So there WAS another, completely illegal, abortionist operating in Chester then, as I suspected.

My correspondent has told me that she attended Howell’s School in Denbigh, 1977-82 and at that time the school doctor was Dr Morton Evans, a GP from Denbigh. She hasn’t told me anything about Morton Evans, instead she asked if I knew anything about him because she believes that ‘he must have been in with the bad guys’.

I don’t know Morton Evans, but as a GP in Denbigh at that time he would have had no choice but to be in with the bad guys. Not only was every working person in the town employed either at the North Wales Hospital or in a business which was dependent upon the North Wales Hospital, but it was the citizens of Denbigh who volunteered to drive the patients to their court cases or transferred them to other institutions. As I have described in previous posts, those drivers were well aware that the patients whom they were ferrying about were not only not necessarily ‘mad’ but had been illegally imprisoned as well. No volunteers that were not 100% tame would have ever been taken on.

The vile old lobotomist Gwynne lived in Denbigh and if anyone had ever had any interest in the welfare of the patients, they’d have set fire to his house in the way in which the gang set fire to the houses of their victims. If someone had moved to Denbigh and had tried to protect the patients from Gwynne and Dafydd et al, scenes worthy of ‘The Wicker Man’ would have resulted:

 

  • The Wicker Man (1973) – Episode 4 Decades of Horror 1970s ...
  • Brian Vs. Movies: The Wicker Man (1973)
  • 1970’s | Through the Looking Glass
  • Wicker Man (1973) movie trailers and photos

 

‘Denbigh is unique’, as Dafydd stated in a media interview in the midst of all those investigations into a possible paedophile ring operating in north Wales/Cheshire. The Empowered Service Users screamed with laughter in response and did Dafydd voices while saying things like ‘Denbigh is unique in having a psychopathic psychiatrist who’s shagging all the patients’ (although of course in that respect, no Denbigh was not unique), but not one politician/public figure/journo had the guts to stand up and say ‘oh for God’s sake, we all know what’s going on out there’ as Dafydd received vast amounts of free PR in numerous media outlets.

Every GP in Wales was colluding with the crimes of Dafydd et al, let alone every GP in Denbigh. Every patient of the GPs in Denbigh will have been Of Dafydd And The Paedophiles, as will have been the GPs. Furthermore, in the way that the midwives in the area around Denbigh knew all about the women incarcerated out there if they had a pregnancy inconvenient to someone else or had to be relieved of their baby illegally and against their wishes or those women who had become pregnant while they were in Denbigh – ‘ooh its those rampant male patients, they’re animals’ – because they were called upon to conceal the crime, the local GPs will have been called upon to deal with some of the serious injuries and illnesses, or at least those for which medical help was summoned as opposed to the cases where the resulting corpse was simply secreted within the grounds.

I encountered a local GP when I was in Denbigh, on New Year’s Eve, 1986. Patients in Denbigh rarely saw anyone but the Angels; dental treatment was unavailable and even the Top Doctors barely dropped in on the wards. Dafydd turned up infrequently, without warning and in the small hours, but the patients’ experience of even the other rather less obviously mad Top Docs was of being constantly told ‘you’ll be seeing the Doctor soon’, only for The Doctor to never materialise. Patients would actually be told to ‘get ready’ because ‘they would be seen’ that morning, only for the Top Doctor to not show up, not warn the Angels that they weren’t going to show up and not explain afterwards why they did not show up. The circus would begin again the following week when the next ‘ward round’ was scheduled. It was by such a process that Mary Wynch was unlawfully imprisoned in Denbigh for a year and was not seen by Dafydd once. Patient F, who had previously challenged social workers over their abuse of boys at Ty Newydd children’s home in Bangor (see previous posts), had a similar experience. The contempt with which desperate, frightened, illegally imprisoned people were treated was breath-taking.

As I have described previously, nearly all patients were taken to Denbigh at night, under cover of darkness, by ambulance rather than police car, because police cars would have been noticeable and ambulances could be explained away as being ‘caring’ rather than punitive. This is why the Welsh Ambulance Service in north Wales has for so long been corrupt and problematic, they were a fully paid up part of the trafficking gang. When F was taken to Ysbyty Gwynedd with breathing difficulties in 1990, after he was discharged, F was told by the ambulanceman who had been called to ‘help’ with his admission – who was one of F’s neighbours in Porthmadog at the time – that if ever F developed breathing difficulties again, ‘next time I’ll let you fucking die’. Health care staff in north Wales were all too often very unpleasant people.

The GP that I saw on New Year’s Eve in Denbigh was the only Top Doc who wasn’t employed as a Top Doc for Denbigh that I saw while I was in Denbigh. I was never meant to encounter him and there were major traumas on the part of the Angels when I did. Previous posts have discussed how when I was in Denbigh I made friends with a young man called Stephen Bagnall, who I am sure died long ago. Stephen was from Queens Park estate in Wrexham, had been a kid in care in the north Wales children’s homes and had been in Risley and Walton Prison. He chatted a lot to me and told me many of the dreadful things which had happened to him, but he mentioned many more actions of ‘professionals’ which he was unaware were completely unlawful, including a number of things that Dafydd had done. Stephen looked appalling, really terrifying, but he was actually kind and friendly and seriously pissed the Angels off by confronting them about the abuses in their ‘unique’ institution.

On New Years Eve, Stephen and I were watching TV when we heard a commotion down the far end of the corridor near the entrance to the ward, which was obviously as result of a patient fighting like buggery in an attempt not to be admitted to Denbigh. We sneaked down the corridor and noticed that the door between the ward and the outer door, which was locked at all times, had been left open, because the patient being brought in was resisting to such an extent that all Angels were needed and in the panic they’d not locked the door behind them. The ambulancemen had dragged the young male patient just inside the main doors, which had then been locked immediately, but the young man had a fight with the Angels just inside of the ward.

There was a middle aged Top Doctor, obviously a GP, who was waving a hypodermic about while the Angels piled on top of the young man after dragging him into one of the padded cells. Stephen and I walked right through into the inner sanctum and the Top Doc turned around and nearly crapped himself when he saw us. The young man wasn’t yet out for the count, so the Angels couldn’t do anything but watch as Stephen started saying to the Top Doc ‘are you a doctor? Do you know what they are doing to people in here? Will you help us please, its terrible in here’. The Top Doc snapped ‘yes I’m a GP, I’m sure that you are well cared for here’. So I stepped out from behind Stephen and said ‘we are not and you can see that we are not. Look at the conditions in here.’ I then had the usual experience in those days of noticing total confusion on a Top Doc’s face  – ‘she’s English, she has a middle class accent, she is using words and phrases that no former kid in care usually uses, she is not dressed like a chav, who is she and what is she doing in here, OH SHIT’.

The Top Doc looked at us and said ‘well Happy New Year to you both’, I started laughing and said ‘what, in this place?’ and he just scarpered… Angels came running as the young man upon whom they had been sitting had now passed out…

Throughout it all, we hadn’t caught a clear view of the new patient’s face, but the next morning, when he awoke, he began protesting with the Angels again, demanding to be released. They still had him in the padded cell, but the door was left open because they were in there with him. During this time, Stephen and I – Stephen had come to fetch me to see if we could get a glimpse of the new inmate ‘because I might know him’ – had a good view of the protest and of the young man’s face. Stephen recognised him, told me that he was from Wrexham but Stephen didn’t know his name. The Angels heard Stephen telling me that he knew the young man. We were told that breakfast was ready, which was served down the other end of the ward. When we finished breakfast the new man had disappeared. We never saw him again. Stephen challenged the Angels and asked them where the new man was. All Angels stared straight ahead of themselves in silence, until one said ‘he’s been transferred, this was not the right place for him’. No, because Stephen had recognised him…another troubled young man from Wrexham, the location of Bryn Alyn and Bryn Estyn.

We never found out where the young man had gone.

The scenes involving the disappearing young man from Wrexham were all recorded by the security services, as was made clear to me a few weeks ago by an informant. They heard the ‘Happy New Year to you both’ bit. They knew who that Top Doc was, they’ll have known who the young man who disappeared was and they’ll know how and when Stephen died.

It wasn’t stopped. A ‘political decision’ was made not to intervene. On Dec 31 1986, Sir Peter Morrison was the Deputy Chairman of the Conservative Party.

Margaret Thatcher

 

This was the Windbag of the Opposition, who obviously agreed with the political decision which was made to save the career of Thatch, because he was fully on board with the Top Docs and Angels of Denbigh and knew Tony Francis, a Top Doc who had patients in Denbigh on 31 Dec 1986:

A reader has also sent me a link to Hansard, 22 May 1981, which is the record of written answers on issues relating to abortion. I was a fresher at UCNW in Oct 1981, which is when I was given the literature re abortion services to which Brown referred to in his comment above.

Hansard recorded that Jo Richardson, Labour MP for Barking, asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many of the deaths in England and Wales recorded in 1978 and 1979 as due to abortion were from abortions induced for medical or other legal reasons; how many were from spontaneous abortion; how many were from other causes, including illegal abortion and in how many cases death followed a main diagnosis of illegal abortion or the abortion was recorded as induced but not otherwise specified.

Dr Gerard Vaughan, the Tory MP for a Reading constituency, replied on behalf of the DHSS. He stated that the ‘available information’ from death registration for England and Wales recorded five deaths from legal abortions in 1978 and two in 1979; one death from spontaneous abortion in 1979; two deaths for ‘unspecified’ reasons in 1979 and no deaths in 1978 or 1979 as a result of illegal abortions.

However, I suspect that if a few deaths from illegal abortions in north Wales/Chester had occurred, Gerard Vaughan would have been keen to ensure that they did not appear in the stats. Because Gerard Vaughan knew Dafydd. Sir Gerard Vaughan was just a few years older than Dafydd, but like Dafydd, Vaughan was a psychiatrist who had trained at the Maudsley. Vaughan was also an enthusiastic Freemason.

Vaughan studied medicine at the University of London, Guy’s Hospital and then the Maudsley. He was a child psychiatrist who was the consultant in charge of the Bloomfield Clinic at Guy’s Hospital, 1958 -79. So Vaughan held a post at Guy’s when so many of them there were colluding with Dafydd and the gang in north Wales, including Dafydd’s mate Jim Watson, who was Professor of Psychiatry at Guy’s, 1974-2000. Jim Watson, like Dafydd, offered sex therapy, pioneering this at St George’s Hospital Medical School, before moving to Guy’s. Jim was busy with his sex therapy when St George’s was concealing a trafficking ring in London and colluding with Dafydd et al in north Wales. Jim not only carried out sex therapy, but he trained others in the techniques.

Here’s Jim:

Professor-JP-Watson

 

For more information on Jim’s glorious career, see post ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’.

 

Gerard Vaughan worked at Guy’s when Ed Miliband’s Uncle Harry was a consultant there.

Gerard Vaughan was the son of a sugar planter and was born and educated in what is now Mozambique. He became involved in Tory politics in the mid-1950s, serving as an alderman on the London County Council, who’s members were even back then ignoring the abuse of children, one such person being Audrey Callaghan, who was also an alderman on the London County Council and, along with her husband Jim Callaghan, colluded with organised abuse including that carried out by Dafydd’s gang, for the rest of her life. See eg. post ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’.

Vaughan was elected as the MP for Reading in 1970 and held the seat until his retirement from politics just before the May 1997 General Election. By which time the Waterhouse Inquiry had been in progress for five months.

Vaughan served as a Gov’t Whip in Heath’s Gov’t and as PPS to Francis Pym, the N Ireland Secretary, 1973-74. So Vaughan knew about the elite paedophile ring at Kincora Boys’ Home, it’s links to Dafydd’s gang and other trafficking gangs on mainland Britain as well as the rest of the seriously grim stuff that occurred in N Ireland during that time, including the collusion of the security services with the most serious crime. Francis Pym was Lord President of the Council, Sept 1981-April 1982. One of the duties of the Lord President of the Council is to act as visitor for UCNW. So Pym was in that role when the Woman’s Guide To Accessing Dangerous Expensive Abortions was distributed to all female freshers at UCNW in Oct 1981.

After Heath’s defeat in 1974, Gerard Vaughan became Health Spokesman for Thatch when she became Leader of the Tory Party in 1975. One of the key people who supported Thatch to succeed Heath as Leader of the Tories was Sir Peter Morrison. Vaughan became a Minister in the DHSS under Secretary of State Patrick Jenkin after the Tories won the General Election in 1979 and it was in this capacity that Vaughan was answering questions on abortion in May 1981.

When Patrick Jenkin was challenged about equal pay as Secretary of State, he famously replied that if God had wanted equal pay ‘he wouldn’t have created man and woman’. Jenkin’s son Sir Bernard Jenkin inherited the gene for being a Tory MP from that dad of his who had an interest in theology and creationism and Bernard is currently the Tory MP for Harwich and North Essex. Bernard is married to Tory peer Baroness Anne Jenkin, who in Dec 2014 stated that one of the causes of hunger and rising food bank use in the UK was because ‘poor people don’t know how to cook’. At the time of the statement, Anne Jenkin was a member of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Food Poverty and Hunger. She later apologised, saying that she was speaking without a script, as opposed to without a brain. Anne explained that ‘what I meant was that as a society, we have lost our ability to cook’. No Anne, plenty of us can still cook, but there are some people in the UK who do not have a kitchen or indeed even a building in which to live and cook in. Even if one is an excellent cook, if one is curled up in one’s sleeping bag in a doorway or kipping in a hostel, preparing a Good Nutritious Meal From Fresh Veg is difficult. In 2017 Jenkin became Chair of the Centre for Social Justice Working Group for ‘Off The Scales: Tackling England’s childhood obesity crisis’. Anne is also a member of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Obesity.

As very poor people clearly do not have enough far richer people screaming at them that they are fat, I might set up a consultancy to encourage this. I’ll apply to the NHS and Gov’t for funding.

Further details about the idiocies of the Jenkin family through the ages can be read in previous posts.

 

After his stellar performance at the DHSS under Patrick Jenkin, Gerard Vaughan found that he did not get on with his next boss Norman Fowler , when Fowler succeeded Jenkin as Secretary of State for the DHSS. I don’t know what upset Gerard Vaughan so much, because Fowler continued concealing Dafydd’s crimes as well. However, the fur flew and as a result Vaughan was appointed Minister for Consumer Affairs. In which role he threatened to slash the budget of the CABs, when he discovered an association between Joan Ruddock, then the head honcho of CND and the CAB. The official story is that the CAB workers rose up in a howl of outrage and Vaughan retreated. I am now so cynical that I am wondering what the truth really was. Because by the mid-1980s, Dafydd and the gang completely controlled the CABs in north Wales and Lucille Hughes held a formal role in the senior management of CAB in Wales.

If the CABs did hold any leverage over Gerard Vaughan, it will have been because of their knowledge of the neglect and abuse in the NHS and welfare services which Vaughan and the Gov’t were concealing. Or did Vaughan realise that CABs were a key cog in Dafydd’s empire and thus twig that the budget could not be cut? Or was the budget preserved and then handed over to Dafydd and Lucille to control and utilise?

Vaughan was dropped from the Gov’t in 1983 as a result of the row over the CABs and was given a knighthood in 1984. 1984 was the year in which Dafydd’s gang sent up a distress flare as Mary Wynch approached the Master of the Rolls and Alison Taylor and I wouldn’t shut up when told either. Reinforcements arrived in north Wales, in the shape of Sir Eric Sunderland, who was appointed Principal of UCNW, as well as a collection of Nice Young Doctors and Angels, who conducted themselves just as badly as the ones already in the region but had better manners and were well camouflaged.

Vaughan served on the Education Select Committee, 1983-93 and the Science and Technology Select Committee, 1993-97.

 

The Torygraph’s 2003 obituary for Gerard Vaughan makes for terrifying reading. It told us that it was Vaughan’s ‘devotion to medicine‘ which drew him into politics; that he had a ‘long career‘ ‘in child psychiatry‘ at Guy’s and ‘an expert’s awareness of the deficiencies in the NHS‘. Vaughan found the problems in the NHS ‘myriad‘, with ‘costs rising‘ and ‘the unions were growing ever more aggressive’.

Particularly the BMA of course.

The entire system was creaking‘ and ‘despite Vaughan’s best efforts, few then were ready to contemplate a partnership with private healthcare’.

Dafydd was one Top Doc who was more than happy to undertake such a partnership, as were the abortionists of Chester.

After qualifying…in 1947, he started as a junior heart surgeon. He then became a general physician and started Guy’s child psychiatry department, where he came to realise that many psychiatric problems had physical origins. In the course of this he developed a treatment, later discontinued but now finding some favour again, for anorexic girls. It involved asking them to make a list of things they would like in hospital. This always began with a visit from the boyfriend, only mentioning food at the end; Vaughan said that they could have these things, but in reverse order.’

The Top Docs ‘success’ rate with anorexia is known to be poor. Anorexia has the highest mortality rate of any mental illness. It is now acknowledged that virtually all psychiatric ‘treatment’ of anorexia has brutalised the patients and for many of them, made their condition substantially worse, such that their relationship with food remains problematic for the rest of their lives.

Although drawn toward politics by the Health Service’s developing problems, he was not impressed by his first experience. When he attended a meeting aimed at explaining how to be a Conservative councillor, he became so fed up with its self-congratulatory tone that he got up, saying, “If you’re not going to teach me something I must go back to my patients.”

I’m sure that the patients just couldn’t couldn’t wait for Vaughan’s return…

But was later surprised to discover that he had been elected an alderman.

Yes, politicians local and national are always desperate to have a Top Doc on board, the Top Doc can then give the stamp of approval to pretty much anything, ensuring that no questions will be asked.

A hopeless attempt to win Poplar for the Tories in the 1955 general election was followed by his being elected to the London County Council as a councillor for Streatham. After being defeated there, he represented Lambeth on the GLC, and became chairman of its new strategic planning committee…

Er, OK. Streatham and Lambeth, two local authorities with organised abuse gangs on their patches which had been in operation as far back as the late 1940s. By the time that Vaughan was a Minister in the DHSS, the gangs in Streatham and Lambeth were closely linked to Dafydd’s gang and were sending kids in care to children’s homes in north Wales. The gang in Streatham was facilitated by St George’s Hospital Medical School (see post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part III’).

Once elected MP for Reading in 1970, Vaughan set about putting his medical experience to good use. In his maiden speech, he roundly declared that too much nonsense was talked about the effect of prescription charges on patients.

You lot in north Wales can pay for those life-threatening abortions as well.

He worried that medical centres were in danger of destroying the close relationship between doctor and patient..

Vaughan meant that the likes of Dr D.G.E. Wood couldn’t sit in a grotty little house in a side street in Bangor aka his ‘surgery’ and totally dominate every aspect of someone’s life, years after she had told him to fuck off because she didn’t want him as her Top Doc any more, while Dafydd passed the message on to all other Top Docs that she had ‘harassed’ and ‘threatened’ an ’eminent GP’. An eminent GP. In Bangor that is, as opposed to Harley Street. The creme de la fucking creme in – the most appropriately named – Orme Road.

…admitted he had been wrong to prescribe the drug thalidomide in his earlier career;

Bloody hell. I bet that he didn’t admit that to the parents who’s babies were born with severe disabilities as a result.

..and warned that the government was plugging the gap in the Health Service with “low standard” doctors from abroad.

Nearly every junior Top Doc in Denbigh was indeed a ‘low standard’ doc from abroad. No-one else would work there. Ysbyty Gwynedd was substantially staffed by Top Docs from abroad as well because British graduates wouldn’t and still won’t work there, although the YG Top Docs, apart from the psychiatrists, were not as uniformly ‘low standard’ as the Top Docs of Denbigh were. However bad the many mediocre Top Docs from abroad were, none of them were as bad as Dafydd. Sadly, the high standard Top Docs from abroad were and are still treated very badly because of the rampant institutionalised racism in medicine.

His popularity with Socialist members was not increased when he tried to join the Association of Scientific, Technical and Managerial Staffs in 1977; he enjoyed pointing out that the union made no response to his application – other than to cash his cheque.

Presumably Vaughan was infiltrating for political purposes. It could be argued that Vaughan should have been very grateful to the ASTMS, they were one of the NHS unions which concealed the wrongdoing of the Top Doctors. However, although the ASTMS concealed the wrongdoing, they used it to gain more powerful position for themselves which always upset the Top Doctors. Had the Top Doctors not been involved with so much serious misconduct and criminality, the ‘ever more aggressive unions’ with whom Vaughan was so angry could have been dealt with. ASTMS metamorphosed into MSF. When I worked at St George’s Hospital Medical School, 1989-91, the MSF reps were corrupt and wielded huge influence as a result of their collusion with the trafficking ring which that institution was facilitating as well as with the rest of the malpractice and misconduct. See previous posts.

On becoming health minister in Margaret Thatcher’s government, charged with introducing better services for less cost, Vaughan set about his task with vigour, facing down angry union demonstrators who opposed any reductions. He ordered the scrapping of the Health Services’ Board, which had been invited to abolish pay beds, and started visiting hospitals, where he would dart unexpectedly down corridors to inspect sluices and other areas which his escorts preferred him not to see.

Gerard Vaughan knew exactly how bad things were then and how much patient harm was concealed and denied.

He also endeavoured to tread a judicious line on abortion, favouring the reduction of the time limit for legal operations from 28 weeks, and eventually supported a compromise of 24 instead of the proposed 20.

Gerard was of course a grade A hypocrite with regard to all matters relating to abortion – he knew what was happening in north Wales and Chester…

He was less lucky with the issue of contraception, supporting the prescription of “the Pill” to girls under 16 without their parents’ knowledge, then having to climb down.

Victoria Gillick’s chaos-inducing mid-1980s legal challenge over the prescribing of the contraceptive pill to girls of under 16 without their parents’ consent saw the nation divided into those who constructed Mrs Gillick as a saint who was preserving Family Life and those who thought that she had locked all of her own daughters into chastity belts. What received no discussion at all at the time was that Top Doctors were very widely prescribing the Pill for underaged girls in care, knowing damn well that they were being sexually abused and that this was why the services of the Top Doc had been requested, often by the abusers themselves. The same Top Docs were livid when Victoria Gillick won her case, although the judgement was later overturned. D.G.E. Wood was one of them – he hated Gillick, but he was one who was dishing out contraception to kids and others whom he knew were being abused. If I had underaged teenaged girls I would be livid if a Top Doc was giving out the contraceptives to them without informing me; not because I would want to invade my children’s privacy, but because I know that many of the Top Docs doing that are colluding with sexual exploitation. Life is very difficult for young people who do not have supportive parents with whom they can discuss such matters, but the Top Docs did and do such kids no favours at all.

Gerard Vaughan was elected FRCS in 1993.

 

In line with their tradition of Praising Top Doctors under all circumstances, ‘The Guardian’ found many kind words to say about Dafydd’s mate Gerard after he pegged out. Gerard ‘was a psychiatrist whose political bedside manner was genial – except for the occasional explosion’…’He did wonderful work for children afflicted by thalidomide’,  – well he had prescribed the stuff for their mothers – ‘and sounded loud warnings about the threat of Aids, including a proposal to post health warnings on affected NHS personnel and screen people coming from infected areas of Africa.’

Gerard didn’t mention the risks that Thomas Tyrell-Kenyon, the HIV infected son of the Tory peer Lord Kenyon, posed to the kids in care in north Wales whom Thomas was sexually abusing (see previous posts).

But his ideology led him to privatising initiatives within the NHS, and more drastic planning for wholesale privatisation in secret party conclaves.

Well fancy a Top Doc friend of Dafydd’s doing that!

…in February 1974, the election that also saw the return of a Wilson government, he made clear his intention to privatise the NHS with his proposal to base it on “total insurance cover”. To back his efforts, he formed the Conservative medical society, becoming its president.

What have you got to say about that then Polly?

…he chaired a party working group that proposed tax relief for private health insurance, later extended to users of private medicine.’

Thus assisting the business of the Grosvenor Nuffield and Dafydd’s many clinics…

He pledged to cut £30m in NHS waste, partly by stopping its abuse by foreigners;

The legions of Nigerian women whom every Torygraph and Daily Mail reader knows come to the UK to give birth to their quins are always a good scapegoat.

 

The Nigerian Whose Five Babies On The NHS Cost Us £200,000 ...

 

he urged reluctant regional authorities to contract out more work to private clinics;

Did Gerard Vaughan plan to roll out the abortion policy as practised by the NHS in north Wales across the whole of the UK perhaps?

he pushed to replace the NHS’s tax income with insurance income, along US or continental lines. Despite cabinet meanness, he tried to improve Britain’s supply of safe blood products.

Whoops!!! Not much success with that one Dr Vaughan. I don’t remember you warning the general public that infected blood products were being given to NHS patients without their knowledge and that thousands of them would subsequently die as a result.

‘Now just pop up on the bed here, we’ll soon have you better. Nothing at all to worry about my dear. Did you mention that you’d complained about Dr Dafydd Alun Jones?  Oh I am sorry to hear that you weren’t happy, he’s a bit eccentric but we’ll make sure that it doesn’t happen to anyone else, we’ll have a word with him. Pass me the HIV infected blood please nurse and I’ll just set up the transfusion.’

 

Although hostile to abortions – QUE??? – he backed the use of the pill for under-16s, under exceptional circumstances.

Such as in cases of the under 16s being trafficked by Dafydd’s gang.

After Denis Thatcher told him that sport would be hit by tough action against tobacco companies, Vaughan’s fanatically anti-smoking junior minister, Sir George Young, was transferred out.

Go down the shop and get me a pack of high tar Woodbines will you, I’m desperate for a fag.

 

The Beneficiary of Sir Gerard Vaughan’s Expertise:

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

Hansard, 22 May 1981, also records that Dr Oonagh McDonald, the Labour MP for Thurrock, asked the Secretary of State for Social Services:

(1) if he will list the names and addresses of those places approved by him in England and Wales under the terms of the Abortion Act 1967  that have special permission to terminate pregnancies of more than 20 weeks’ duration; and what prices were charged to patients for terminating pregnancies of 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, and 26 weeks gestational periods that were performed at each of the places in the years 1975 to 1980, respectively;

(2) if he will list the names and addresses of those places in England and Wales approved to terminate pregnancies under the Abortion Act 1967 of which he required information and assurances regarding prices paid by patients before giving approval; if he will detail against each the cost to the patients before giving approval; if he will detail against each the cost to the patients at 10, 12, 14, 16, and 18 weeks of pregnancy, respectively, and whether there can be extra costs; how many approved beds each has; how many abortions were performed by each in the years 1975 to 1980, respectively; and what were the periods of gestation for operations performed in the years 1975 to 1980, respectively;

(3) if he will list the names and addresses of those places in England and Wales approved to terminate pregnancies under the Abortion Act 1967 in which he does not require assurances about the prices charged for abortion operations; how many approved abortion beds each has; how many abortions were performed by each in the years 1975 to 1980, respectively; and if he will give all available information about the prices charged to patients.

Patrick Jenkin replied:

The 60 places listed below are currently approved for the purposes of section 1(3) of the Abortion Act 1967 for treatment for the termination of pregnancy. Places approved for the termination of pregnancies of more than 20 weeks’ duration and those required to give information on fees charged to patients are indicated on the list. The remainder of the information requested could not be provided without disproportionate cost (My emphasis. So there’s something that the House was not told.)

So even to the extent that Patrick Jenkin was prepared to admit, there were substantial facilities available in England and Wales to provide women with abortions, including late stage abortions, if they were prepared to pay. Many of these women will have been previously denied an NHS abortion. I note that some of these beds were in areas where there was known to be substantial problems with paedophile/trafficking gangs.

 

Oonagh McDonald then asked Jenkin how many abortions in each of the years 1970 to 1980 respectively have been performed in NHS premises in England and Wales that have involved payment by the patient; in how many of these procedures an overnight stay in a pay bed was involved; and in how many was it an outpatient treatment.

Jenkin replied by saying that the information requested was not available.

The literature supplied to students at UCNW in the 1980s made it clear that a termination at the ‘private clinic’ in Chester did not involve an overnight stay. The patient was kicked out immediately, which was why girls were asked to bring a friend with them to the ‘clinic’ to drive them home immediately. So all pretty substandard and dangerous and no doubt as Brown suggested, accompanied by conduct designed to make the patient feel as bad as possible about the whole process, lest they felt like raising the matter with any third parties.

 

Here’s a bit of background on the Wimmin who asked the questions in the House re abortion in May 1981, but did not follow up on the horror story to which the answers clearly pointed.

 

Jo Richardson was the Labour MP for Barking, 1974-94. She was succeeded in that seat by Little Nell Hodge.

Richardson was born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne and attended Southend High School for Girls. Her father had stood as a Liberal Party candidate in Darlington during the 1930s, but died while she was still young. Her mother was a member of the Congregational Church. 

Joining the Labour Party in 1945, Richardson began her political career as Ian Mikardo’s secretary. She co-ordinated the ‘Keep Left Group’ and went on to become the secretary of the Tribune Group before co-ordinating the Victory for Socialism Campaign. In 1951 Richardson was elected to Hornsey Borough Council and became Mikardo’s full-time secretary and working partner in his business which involved trade with eastern Europe.

Not only did the Hornsey area host a trafficking gang which by the 1980s was directly linked to Dafydd et al, but Ian Mikardo was the Labour MP for an East End seat which also hosted a trafficking gang with links to Dafydd’s gang. See previous posts. Children from the East End were sent to children’s homes and foster carers in north Wales, where they were abused and then trafficked back down to London as sex workers. Mikardo and his fellow East End Labour MP Peter Shore knew about this, colluded with and concealed it. Shore later assisted with the provision of hospice care for young people with AIDS, many of whom were former kids in care who had become infected during that period of their lives. See eg. posts ‘Apocalypse Now’ and ‘The Bodies Beneath Canary Wharf’.

 

Jo Richardson was seen as a peace campaigner on the hard left of the Labour Party. She was a member of the Socialist Campaign Group but resigned in 1988 in protest at Tony Benn’s decision to challenge the Windbag for the leadership. She served as a member of the Shadow Cabinet.

Richardson was a ‘central figure of the feminist left and helped to expand women’s rights in Britain’, except of course for the rights of wimmin trafficked by Dafydd or forced into the hands of dangerous abortionists by the Top Doctors. Richardson was the head of a group of women MPs that supported the anti-pornography position. Which must be why she remained completely silent about John Allen’s porn empire, the stars of the material being kids in care from north Wales who were forced to work in the ‘specialised tastes’ porn market, including bestiality. See post ‘I Predict A Riot’.

Jo Richardson was a pro-choice campaigner. But not on behalf of wimmin in north Wales.

‘We Are Wimmin, We Are Strong.’

Jo Richardson:

  • 301 Moved Permanently

 

Millie Tant, speaking at the 84th Labour Party Conference at Bournemouth, Oct 1985. That was the one where the Windbag ranted, Fatty Heffer stomped off the platform in a huff and Degsy and Militant just hurled abuse at the Windbag. Meanwhile, up in north Wales…

  • Jo Richardson, MP, speaking at the 84th Labour Party ...

 

Jo Richardson served as an executive member of the NCCL, during the time in which PIE was affiliated with the NCCL and campaigning for paedophiles’ rights. Richardson wrote to PIE journal Childhood Rights, saying that she supported their campaign against corporal punishment.

In 2014 the UK press revisited the time in the 1970s when many Labour figures were deeply involved with the NCCL, at the time when the NCCL campaigned on behalf of PIE. Notable people named included Harriet Harman, Paul Boateng, Patricia Hewitt (who succeeded Greville Janner’s Parliamentary seat and became Miranda’s Secretary of State for Health) and of course Jo Richardson. Tony Smythe, who was a leading light in MIND for years while MIND concealed Dafydd’s crimes, was also a big name in the NCCL. Sue Slipman, who had been a student at Lampeter in the 1970s was a communist who then joined Dr Death in the SDP and was also big in the NCCL. More recently Slipman Chaired an NHS Trust. Anna Coote, who used to be married to Radio 4’s celebrity sociologist Laurie Taylor, was involved with the NCCL. Anna and Laurie’s son Matthew Taylor was Miranda’s policy adviser when Miranda was PM.

Even more worrying were the number of lawyers who were involved at a senior level with the NCCL during it’s Paedophile Period. They included: Little Nell’s husband Sir Henry Hodge, who became a High Court judge; Patsy Hewitt’s husband Bill Birtles, who also became a High Court judge; barrister Peter Thornton, who became the Chief Coroner of England and Wales; Catherine Scorer, the trade union legal officer; the Human Rights lawyer Geoffrey Robertson; Howard Levenson, who became a High Court judge and who’s wife was a member of the GMC.

PIE shared an address in London with Release, an organisation established to help people in trouble as a result of being arrested for offences involving drugs. While patient F was illegally imprisoned in Denbigh by Dafydd in 1986, F contacted Release for help. F had originally been arrested after the Drugs Squad planted class A drugs on him and his then wife. F was really wowed when a man from Release came all the way up to Denbigh from London. F said that the man was very pleasant but told F that ‘there was nothing he could do’.

F had been fitted up by the police, violently assaulted by a senior officer at the police station, imprisoned in Risley Remand Centre for setting fire to his own house – although I have now been told that it wasn’t F who set the house on fire – possibly heard a murder being committed when he was in Risley and then was unlawfully transferred to Denbigh where he was detained, again unlawfully, for a year. I think that the man from Release could have done a great deal, but because he knew that Dafydd and the gang in north Wales were the main suppliers of the Westminster Paedophile Ring, he got the hell out of there and quickly. See previous posts for the full story re F and Release.

F was incredibly chatty and open about his extraordinary experiences. I imagine that the man from Release was told to go up to Denbigh and listen to what F told him. The man from Release would then have told his mates in PIE that F remembered a great many details about a great deal of serious crime that he had witnessed at first hand. It’ll have gone straight back to Dafydd.

Amazingly enough, Release received funding from the Home Office. The Home Office which colluded with the crimes of the trafficking gang in north Wales. That funding wasn’t given to Release to help people like F or the many other victims of Dafydd’s gang whom were targeted by the endemically corrupt Drug Squad in north Wales, it will have been given to Release to ensure that, like every other Charidee For The Distressed, they completely ignored anyone suffering at the hands of Dafydd et al. It was the prevailing arrangement with MIND, Wimmin’s Aid and the rest of the voluntary sector. Touch Dafydd and your supply of dosh will disappear.

 

Stephen Carnell was involved with the NCCL in the 1970s. Years later Carnell was jailed for three years after being caught in the possession of 12,000 indecent images and 450 films. Stephen Carnell was the election agent for Chris Bryant, who has been the Labour MP for the Rhondda since 2001. Chris Bryant is a former vicar who, when Thatch was destroying south Wales, was actually a member of the Tory Party. How he was ever selected for a safe Labour seat in the Rhondda I’d be most interested to know.

Bryant’s highlights include appearing on a gay dating website wearing only a rather naff pair of underpants, with his photo accompanied by the question ‘Oy mate, want a fuck?’ and just a few weeks ago gaining much praise when he spearheaded legislation to massively increase prison sentences for people convicted of offences against NHS staff and other ’emergency workers’. Bryant began campaigning on this matter and demanding Tougher Sentences after I began blogging about the paedophiles’ friends in north Wales framing patients for ‘attacking NHS staff’ who had complained about the mental health services.

The involvement with this bunch of utter fuckwits with people who campaigned on behalf of paedophiles thirty years ago is causing very, very big problems. Some of those involved in those campaigns were very serious offenders running criminal trafficking gangs. Others, probably including Harriet Harman, were simply too stupid to realise who they were involved with. However because of their ruthless nature, all of them, even those who were not paedophiles themselves, will now do anything, anything at all, to distract from and conceal their past involvement.

Anyone for Getting Tough On Dangerous Nutters Who Attack Angels?

See previous posts for information on the NCCL and those who were leading lights in that organisation.

 

Jo Richardson co-authored the pamphlets ‘Keep Left’ (1947) and ‘Keeping Left’ (1950) with Dick Crossman, Michael Foot and Ian Mikardo.

Dick Crossman was a big Labour figure of yesteryear. Crossman was the MP for Coventry East, 1945-74. Dafydd’s gang received kids in care from Coventry… Crossman held a number of roles in Harold Wilson’s Gov’t, including that of Secretary of State for Social Services, 1968-70, in which capacity he concealed the wrongdoing in north Wales. Crossman was Lord President of the Council, 1966-68 and thus was the visitor for UCNW when dear old UCNW was entirely under the grip of the trafficking gang. Crossman had many homosexual affairs when he was a student at New College, Oxford. He worked for the security services and was one of those Gov’t figures who used the security services to assist Dafydd et al rather than to stop them. Crossman’s diaries were considered to present such a potential embarrassment to Gov’t that before they were published posthumously in the mid-1970s, the Gov’t tried to block their publication.

Michael Foot was one of Crossman’s legal executors and opposed his own Gov’ts attempts to block the publication of Crossman’s diaries, although Foot was a Cabinet Minister at the time.

Crossman and Foot concealed the criminality of Dafydd et al, as well as the Westminster Paedophile Ring. People of my generation just remember Footie as being an old boy with a walking stick and a dog called Dizzy, but when he was young, Foot was a sexual predator and his wife, Jill Craigie, made references to his ‘extra needs’, which she told him to fulfil but to not discuss with her. See previous posts for more background on Richard Crossman and Michael Foot.

In 1985 KGB  defector Oleg Gordievsky named Jo Richardson as a confidential contact of his embassy.

.

Jo Richardson was Secretary of the Tribune Group (formerly Keep Left Group, Bevan Group), 1948-78 and it’s Chairperson 1978-79; a Member of Labour’s NEC, 1979-91; Opposition Spokesperson on Wimmin’s Rights, 1983-92.  Richardson was Chair of the Labour Party, 1989-90, under the Windbag.

 

Tam Dalyell wrote Richardson’s obituary which was published in the Indie in 1994. It contains some gems:

Jo Richardson in her heyday, and her heyday lasted from 1945 until 1990, was one of the dynamos of the Left in Britain. She was a ’cause and issue’ politician – against German rearmament, and Aldermaston marcher…’

Bertrand Russell co-founded CND in 1958 and led the Aldermaston marches. Russell was highly sexually predatory, including toward members of his own family and utilised the services of Top Doctors to wreck the lives of his son John and his granddaughter Lucy. As a teenager, Lucy complained about Russell’s behaviour toward her and found herself diagnosed as schizophrenic – just liker her dad was, her dad who always maintained that Russell was a nasty old bugger who did appalling things to other people. In his later years, Bertrand Russell lived at Penrhyndeudraeth in what is now Gwynedd. See post ‘So Who Was Angry About What?’ for more details on Russell and his family.

Bertrand Russell was a friend of Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, who married into the Bloomsbury Set (see post ‘R.I.P. Fenella Fielding’). During the middle years of the 20th century, Clough let out many of the cottages on his estate at Llanfrothen/Croesor to his bohemian friends from England. The local people suffered very greatly at the hands of Gwynne the lobotomist and Dafydd at the time. Clough and Russell and their friends knew about this but didn’t concern themselves with it. See post ‘The Village’. Russell was far too busy bringing about world peace to worry about a criminal gang under his nose and anyway the criminal gang did a few favours for Russell and his mates. It wasn’t Russell who ended up in an asylum, although his son and his granddaughter did. As did at least one woman who was the partner of one of the Croesor radicals, who found herself spending a few decades in the North Wales Hospital Denbigh when she had a pregnancy that was inconvenient to her partner. Who had run off with another woman anyway.

The Top Doctors knew what was happening to the female partners of Clough’s mates because, unlike the locals at Croesor who gave birth at home, Clough’s friends had their babies in the St David’s Hospital in Bangor, which was run entirely by the trafficking gang, who for decades performed a valuable service for powerful people who didn’t want their sexual conduct towards less powerful people becoming public. Such as a sexual abuser who worked as a psychiatrist and ran a paedophile/trafficking gang.

The local Welsh people of Llanfrothen and Croesor knew all about Dafydd and the gang as well as their links to Bertrand Russell, but as locals were swatted under the jackboot of the Top Doctors like gnats no-one worried about them. Until one of them got himself an education and became involved in political activism as a young man. Ever since, the paedophiles’ friends have been desperately doing everything possible to undermine and smear him. Who is this man? Merfyn Jones, the former VC of Bangor University, who found himself under constant attack from paedophiles’ friends in both high and low places, particularly after his wife died when the paedophiles’ friends of the Walton Centre found that there was just nothing that they could do when she became ill some years ago. Merfyn gew up in Llanfrothen, his mum and dad ran the pub there and they knew absolutely everyone. Merfyn has never told anyone that he has the dirt on the whole bloody lot of them, because unlike the paedophiles’ friends he never seemed to be vindictive and insane, but that is why they all really hate him. See previous posts.

The pub which Merfyn’s mum and dad ran was called The Brondanw Arms. Colloquially it was known as ‘Y Ring’, on account of it’s wrought iron decoration, which formed a sort of ring.

Here’s where all the action took place:

Tam Dalyell told us in Richardson’s obituary that If women’s causes now receive such dramatic prominence in the affairs of the Labour Party their advance is due in no small measure to the day-in-day-out campaigning of Jo Richardson. No group was too insignificant, no organisation too obscure to merit a visit.

Well I never saw Jo in Denbigh or at Hergest or even having a drink at The Brondanw Arms. She must have dropped in on a day when I wasn’t around.

As a councillor and later as an MP she championed women: ‘I am not all that interested in the high-achieving woman . . . I’m concerned about all the women with expertise and wisdom, who never get to first base; they’re poor, they’ve got kids . . . their lives are drudgery.’

I’m glad that you understand Jo! I was mates with loads of them for years. Er – they’re still poor and forgotten aren’t they?

The basis of Richardson’s feminism was among the poorer women of her council ward, and later her constituency of Barking…

Little Nell was most concerned about the Oppressed Wimmin of Barking as well when Little Nell took over the seat from Jo. There was a problem in Barking while all this Wimmin’s Wisdom was present in that constituency. Precisely that the residents of Barking kept voting for the BNP. Another little local difficulty was the hospital in Barking, which had an appalling death rate, particularly among women and newborns. Little Nell mouthed off non-stop about the BNP but she didn’t breathe a word about that lethal hospital killing women in childbirth and their babies. Not even when the scandal hit the press and an investigation was demanded.

The Labour Party never asked themselves why the voters of Barking were so magnetically attracted to the BNP. Not even when the BNP were following a strategy of meeting local people having a hard time and helping them with their housing and benefits problems etc.

Meanwhile…

In her maiden speech she [Richardson] supported better pay for primary teachers and nursery teachers.

Not that Richardson was ever concerned for better off women. Teachers certainly don’t enjoy the lifestyles of bankers, but they’re a damn site better off than care workers or Empowered Service Users.

She wanted the nationalisation of banks and insurance companies. She sponsored various domestic violence acts to aid battered wives.

While Jo Richardson and Wimmin’s Aid continued to ignore and freeze out victims of the trafficking gangs across the whole of the UK.

 

Richardson was Chairperson of the Black and Advisory Committee of the Labour Party. She was a member of ASTMS [later the MSF]’ and  ‘to the pleasure of her union’ she was made Labour Spokesperson on Wimmins Rights on the front bench… ‘had there been a Labour gov’t she would quite certainly have been the first minister for womens affairs in Britain – alas that honourable ambition was not to be’.

Well there wasn’t a Labour Gov’t for Jo to be in, the Tories remained in power for years because the Labour Party was full of foolish old hypocritical trouts like Jo Richardson, who did the bidding of highly paid professional people involved with serious organised crime and they sold the victims of the gangs which those white collar criminals were running down the river.

While Jo Richardson sang We Are Wimmin, We Are Strong, this dominated the landscape in north Wales:

 

  • PROJ3CTM4YH3M Urban Exploration | Urbex: Denbigh Lunatic ...
  • PROJ3CTM4YH3M Urban Exploration | Urbex: Denbigh Lunatic ...
  • Denbigh's North Wales hospital put up for sale AGAIN at £2 ...
  • North Wales Hospital, Denbigh - County Asylums

 

 

When Labour finally did get back into power, after Miranda had turned it into a branch of the Conservative Party and given key roles to the paedophiles’ friends, the UK was blessed with a Minister for Wimmin. It was Harriet. Who was succeeded by Baroness Jay of Paddington aka Jim Callaghan’s daughter. Who was succeeded by Patsy Hewitt. Who was succeeded by Tessa Jowell. The only reason we wimmin didn’t get Little Nell to represent our interests was that Miranda made her Minister for Children, after her loyal years of service as Leader of Islington Borough Council, when that Council’s children’s homes were infiltrated by a trafficking gang who murdered some of the children.

 

The Jo Richardson Community School in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham was named in the honour of this ruthless, dishonest, paedophiles’ friend.

 

When I read of what people like Jo Richardson did while mouthing off about helping Wimmin, I am reminded of someone with whom I was friends in north Wales, who had the full Paedophiles’ Friends Experience after he developed mental health problems. It culminating in years of abuse from the Top Doctors, one term of imprisonment on the basis of the perjury of the staff of the Hergest Unit and him watching a number of his friends commit suicide, before he was unlawfully denied all NHS treatment by the Top Docs. He was a pacifist and a kind and gentle person, who, after hearing that yet another Hergest patient had topped themselves or was up in court for ‘attacking an Angel’ would sometimes remark of the paedophile gang ‘you just want someone to break their fucking legs don’t you’. This man moved to Gwynedd in 1979 because of his enthusiasm for climbing. Where had he lived before that? North London. He had been a youth worker in Islington and he walked out of a social work course because he witnessed the neglect and abuse of clients by Haringey Council and told his tutors who ordered him to not report any of it. This man knew Little Nell and Howard Levenson. When he moved to north Wales, he made the mistake of telling a few people what he had witnessed in Islington and Haringey.

 

Now to Dr Oonagh McDonald, the other Labour MP who questioned Dafydd’s mate about abortion. McDonald was born in Stockton-on-Tees, Co Durham, the daughter of Dr HD McDonald, an Irish protestant minister. The family moved to London and she was educated at the Roan School for Girls in Greenwich, East Barnet Grammar School and King’s College London, where Oonagh gained a Master’s in Theology in 1962 and a PhD in 1974. She worked variously as a teacher, lecturer, researcher and management consultant. Oonagh taught philosophy at the Bristol University, 1965-76. D.G.E. Wood was a medical student at Bristol in the late 1960s and many of his network had links with Bristol University. David Hunt, who as a Minister in the Welsh Office and then Secretary of State for Wales spent years colluding with Wood, Dafydd and the gang, studied law at Bristol University in the mid-1960s. Hunt is now a leading light in international law firm DAC Beachcroft, which acts for the MDU. See previous posts.

MacDonald also served as a member of the Financial Services Commission in Gibraltar and was a senior consultant on international regulatory and public policy issues.

McDonald was elected Labour MP for Thurrock in Essex in 1976. She became PPS to the Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Joel – later Lord – Barnett in 1977. Joel Barnett was responsible for devising the Barnett Formula, which was used to assign funding from Westminster to Wales and Scotland. It was accepted by everyone that the Barnett Formula was unfair to Wales and over-generous to Scotland, but despite many conferences and working parties, the dear old Barnett Formula remained firmly in place. McDonald was Opposition Spokesman on Defence, 1981–1983 and then Opposition Spokesman on Treasury and Economic Affairs, 1983-1987, under the Windbag, during those years when the Windbag planned his election campaigns upon the need to ingratiate himself to the Top Doctors and Angels, including those in north Wales committing serious crime.

In 1998, McDonald was given a CBE for services to financial regulation and business. So she received something during the Waterhouse Inquiry for keeping her mouth shut then, even if it wasn’t a peerage.

McDonald is a Director of the British Portfolio Trust, Complaints Commissioner for the London Metal Exchange, ICE Futures and Virt-x and a member of IMF’s Expert Roster. She was previously a Director of the UK FSA (formerly the Securities and Investments Board), a Director of the General Insurance Standards Council, a Director of Skandia Insurance Co Ltd, a Director of the Financial Services Ombudsman Scheme, a Director of the Investors Compensation Scheme and of Scottish Provident (until demutualised and sold to Abbey National in 2001) and a member of the Gibraltar Financial Services Commission. She has undertaken numerous consultancy projects on financial regulation and the development of private pensions for the Asian Development Bank, the IMF, USAID and the British Know-How Fund in Russia, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Brunei and Moldova.

She was Gwilym Gibbon Fellow at Nuffield College, Oxford and wrote The Future of Whitehall, Weidenfeld and Nicolson (1992) and is also the author of Parliament at Work, Methuen (1989) and The Future of Retail Banking in Europe: A View from the Top, with Professor Kevin Keasey, John Wiley & Sons (2002) and numerous research papers for a variety of clients including Deloitte’s and PricewaterhouseCoopers. In 2013, Bloomsbury Academic Press published her book “Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac: Turning the American Dream into a Nightmare”. She is currently a Visiting Fellow, International Institute of Banking & Financial Services, Leeds University. She also edits the Journal of Financial Regulation & Compliance. She has been the Chair of the Fairbanking Mark Assessment Panel for the Fairbanking Foundation since November 2013.

Good to see that a woman who wasn’t capable of challenging Dafydd and a dodgy dangerous abortionist was subsequently given responsibility for controlling the excesses of global capitalism.

 

I noted that in the list of the private hospitals that Patrick Jenkin admitted were carrying out abortions in the late 1970s/early 1980s, not only did the Grosvenor Nuffield in Chester appear, but so did the Nuffield Hospital in Taunton. I knew someone who booked into the Nuffield Hospital in Taunton in about 1974. He had suffered a major stroke many months previously, had regained a bit of movement, but wanted to go into the Nuffield for a couple of weeks to give his wife a rest. Off he trundled and three days later there was the most unholy row. His wife received a phone call from the Top Doctors, maintaining that he had ‘gone mad, was violent’ and that if a solution could not be found to this problem, they would certify him and it would be off to Tone Vale (the asylum near Taunton) for him.

His wife, as well as other members of the family, went straight down to Taunton. They found a very distressed stroke patient who was quite sane but bloody fuming, because he maintained that he had discovered that some of the Angels at the Nuffield in Taunton were running a prostitution racket IN the hospital and were offering sex to patients. The Top Docs gravely explained that they couldn’t have such allegations made tch tch and if the family agreed to take this madman out of the Nuffield – but nonetheless agree to pay for his planned stay in the brothel which had been pre-booked – they would say no more about it. If the dosh and removal of the patient was not agreed to, there were already the Dafydds of Somerset ready and waiting to certify him.

The elderly man returned home, where he was reassured by one of his relatives who had spent years working as a nurse in Taunton and then Bridgwater, that he wasn’t mad, that there was indeed a prostitution racket going on at the Nuffield, it had been going on for some while and was widely known among the medical professionals in the area.

I was only about 12 when all that kicked off but I remember it well Dafydd and unfortunately for you, I inherited rather more of the genetic loading of the angry old boy who wanted to do battle with the Bastards of the Nuffield than the Appeasers.

There was a network across the whole of the UK by that time which continued for years, run by corrupt medical and welfare professionals, who were involved in the sex, drugs and porn trade. I will be blogging more about this soon.

By the way Taunton network – MR RAINEY. The butcher of an orthopaedic surgeon who insulted and brutalised his patients and when he thought that he could get away with it violently assaulted a few of them as well. Absolutely legendary throughout Taunton and Bridgwater and became a millionaire to boot. Not one person dared put a stop to him.

You think that my grandpa caused you problems Top Doctors  – he wasn’t a blogger who had encountered Dafydd… By the way, grandpa freaked the Top Doctors out because he tried to ring the police to report the prostitution racket in the Nuffield. In the same way that I and others repeatedly reported the members of a trafficking gang to the police…

 

Here’s a few Interesting Facts:

Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor aka the Duke of Westminster, a close friend of Carlo’s and the President of the City of Chester Conservative Association when Sir Peter Morrison was MP for Chester, was a Committee Member of the Nuffield Hospitals from 1995 until his death in 2016.

Virginia Bottomley, a former psychiatric social worker who was Minister of Health, 1989-92 and Secretary of State for Health, 1992-95, was a non-executive Director of BUPA, 2007-13. Ginny’s daughter Cecilia is a Top Doctor (Obs and Gynae) who undertakes private work on behalf of BUPA.

Enid Rowlands, who is married to Huw Vaughan Thomas -the Chief Executive of Gwynedd County Council when the kids in the care of Gwynedd were being abused and trafficked to various locations including Dolphin Square (see posts ‘I Know Nuzzing…’ and ‘Are You Local?’) – was/is a member of the Board of BUPA. Enid has also been a member of the GMC; a Trustee of the GMC Pension Scheme; Chair of Victim Support; a member of the North Wales Police Authority; a member of the S4C Authority; Chair of the North Wales Health Authority; Chair of Education and Skills Wales; Chair of the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority. Enid served on the North Wales Health Authority at the same time as did Dr Peter Higson. Peter Higson worked as a clinical psychologist at the North Wales Hospital, then was the manager of that institution. Higson is now Chair of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board. His sister, Ruth Hussey, is the former Chief Medical Officer for Wales. Huw Vaughan Thomas was appointed Auditor General For Wales after his time as Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council. Huw picked up that job when Jeremy Colman, the previous Auditor General for Wales was jailed for child porn offences. See previous posts.

Here’s Enid, lest anyone wishes to perform a citizen’s arrest if they bump into her, because it’s fairly clear that she is in no danger of being apprehended by the North Wales Police:

The President of the Denbighshire branch of the Royal College of Midwives, 1955-75, knew all about the disappearing women and babies. She was Geraldine Mackeson-Sandbach, the daughter of a wealthy landed family in north Wales, who also owned sugar plantations in the West Indies. Geraldine’s son Ian Lawrie Mackeson-Sandbach was appointed the most senior Freemason in north Wales in 1997, just in time for the Waterhouse Inquiry, where he remained until the cover-up was complete and the dust had settled. Ian’s daughter Antoinette Sandbach worked as a barrister in London until the paedophile gang called for reinforcements some ten years ago, whereupon Antoinette felt the pull of hiraeth and returned to Paedophile HQ in north Wales. Within months she had become a Tory AM. Much as Antoinette was dedicated to the welfare of farmers in north Wales, at the first opportunity she bagged a safe Tory Westminster seat in Cheshire, where she remains. See previous posts for details of the adventures of Antoinette, her ancestors and the Causes Close To Their Hearts.

 

Abortion has remained a political hot potato and a focal point for campaigners ever since the Abortion Act of 1967. There have been a number of attempts to legislate to reduce access to abortion as well as to widen access. The arguments used by anti and pro abortionists are very familiar and have remained virtually unchanged for years, as indeed have the identities of a number of those involved in leading the campaigns.

In none of these campaigns has anyone ever drawn upon or even mentioned the grisly lessons of the Top Doctors Of North Wales.

In Jan 1988, the Lib Dem MP David Alton tried to cut the limit for legal abortions to 18 weeks by the introduction of a private members bill but the bill ran out of time. Alton’s bill caused much debate and mobilisation of campaigners. At the time, I was asked by a Top Doctor at the Royal Free what I thought about David Alton’s attempt to change the law. I told him that I that David Alton may have very genuine feelings on the matter but that I suspected that he did not realise just how terrible the situations of some women were. I was thinking of some of the victims of Dafydd et al in north Wales at the time, but I didn’t say that. I was told by the Top Doctor that the problem with making it easier to access abortion was that ‘callous women’ would ‘take advantage’ of it.

Callous women do exist, indeed they were appointed as Wimmin’s Ministers in Parliament repeatedly, but there was no-one so callous as those Top Docs in north Wales, who while running a trafficking gang unlawfully prevented women from accessing NHS abortions and forced them into the hands of a dangerous abortionist in England who demanded money. I know for a fact that the Royal Free Top Doc who pompoused away to me knew about Dafydd and the gang in north Wales and the situation re access to abortion. Furthermore, the Royal Free was one of the institutions which was providing a big umbrella for Dafydd.

Duncan Orme, when he was the Students’ Union Welfare Officer at UCNW in the mid-1980s concealed the members of the trafficking gang who was occupying the Student Health Centre as well as the harm to students which they inflicted and was rewarded for this with a place on the graduate trainee programme for NHS managers – at the Royal Free (see post ‘I Predict A Riot’). When I was at UCNW, Liz Stables, the Angel who was facilitating the trafficking gang in UCNW, told me that a Bangor student had been offered a place to read medicine at the Royal Free.

The Mr Big who was the link between Bangor University and the London Medical Schools was Lord Brian Flowers, a nuclear physicist who held a number of very senior posts at London University, including that of VC. Brian Flowers concealed en masse research fraud, patient harm and the trafficking gangs who were operating in the London hospitals. Flowers later served as the VC of Manchester University. Flowers was originally from Swansea and remained loyal to his old muckers in Wales. See previous posts.

I accept that there are people who genuinely feel that abortion is wrong and I don’t think that they should be shouted down or have their views dismissed on the grounds that they are a bunch of old misogynists, because not all of them are. However, the Top Doctors are so flawed and have so grossly abused their positions, that I suggest that decisions regarding abortion, at least early abortion, should be taken right out of their hands. The most sensible thing would be to make early abortion available on demand and then for someone to have a long hard think about how the messy and grim realities of late abortion or abortions on very young, vulnerable or uncertain women are addressed, because these decisions cannot be left solely in the hands of such an abusive profession.

 

Anti-abortionists were scuppered yet again in an attempt to achieve a significant tightening of the law in June 1990; not only that, but their attempt backfired due to a complex voting system and resulted in a further liberalising of the law. This was achieved solely by the casting vote of then Deputy Speaker, Sir Paul Dean, which was seen as probably the most significant act of his political career. Sir Paul Dean was not a man whom one would have expected to be particularly sympathetic to liberalising abortion.

Paul Dean was the Tory MP for Woodspring (formerly north Somerset), 1964-92. North Somerset was the neck of the woods from which D.G.E. Wood came; his father was a Top Doc in the Bristol/north Somerset area. Dean was succeeded as the Tory MP for that seat by the right wing tosser of a Top Doc, Liam Fox (see previous posts).

From 1982 until his retirement, Dean served as Deputy Speaker, first under George Thomas, then under Bernard Weatherill. George Thomas sexually assaulted children and young people for years, throughout his whole career. This was widely known in Parliament, to the police and in south Wales, where Thomas was a high profile Labour MP and a leading light in the Methodist Church. A great many people pushed out a great many boats to protect George Thomas and the Top Docs of Wales pushed out more boats than most. Paul Dean knew that Thomas was molesting children, as did Bernard Weatherill.

Dean served as Second Deputy Chairman of Ways and Means, 1982-87 and First Deputy Chairman of Ways and Means, 1987-92. He was preceded by Ernest Armstrong in both posts and was also preceded by Ernest Armstrong as Deputy Speaker. Ernest Armstrong was the Labour MP for North West Durham, 1964-87, who in his capacity as an MP as well as previously when a Sunderland Councillor, had concealed the paedophile ring in the north east of England, which was linked to the ring in north Wales and supplied both staff and children to the gang in north Wales/Cheshire. It was Ernest Armstrong who did Miranda so many favours when Miranda went after his seat at Sedgefield and then built his stronghold in the north east. Ernest Armstrong’s daughter Hilary succeeded him as MP for North West Durham. Hilary Armstrong became one of Miranda’s inner circle (see post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part III’).

Paul Dean was born in Nantwich, Cheshire, into a family who owned farms in Cheshire and north Wales. He was educated at Ellesmere College, Shropshire and Exeter College, Oxford. At Oxford, Dean was President of Conservative Association and also the Oxford Carlton Club. He served with Welsh Guards during WWII, but after the war he abandoned family farms and became  tutor at Swinton Conservative College in north Yorkshire. Paul Dean then worked in the Research Dept of Conservative Central Office, 1957-64. At the time, that Dept was known to be dominated by a number of senior staff who propositioned boys for sex. When Matthew Parris worked there just a few years later, he found that holidays in Italy were being organised by the staff of that Dept at a place known as the Villa of Vice or the Villa of Shame, where ‘willing boys’ were supplied for parties. See previous posts.

Paul Dean was a junior Minister in the DHSS, 1970-74. After the Tories’ election victory in 1970, Dean was made junior Minister for social security. He was a parsimonious minister, opposing the abolition of tax on pensioners earning less than £2,000 a year. He proudly introduced the 1973 Social Security Act and attacked Barbara Castle for ‘vicious political vandalism’ when, on Labour’s return to office the following year, she delayed implementation of parts of it. Dean worked under Secretary of State Sir Keith Joseph, the MP for Leeds North East, 1956-87. Joseph’s constituency was at the heart of Jimmy Savile and Police Corruption Country and Joseph spent his whole career concealing organised abuse. It was Keith Joseph who took on as his adviser for children in care Barbara Kahan, a social worker who was married to Top Doctor Vladimir Kahan. Kahan colluded with organised abuse as did her husband. Kahan had been the manager of a number of social workers who were later identified as paedophiles, including Louis Minster. Once she became a Gov’t adviser, she worked with many more social workers, teachers and academics who were using their work as a front for child abuse. See post ‘Always On The Side Of The Children’.

There is no way that Barbara and Vladimir Kahan and Keith Joseph did not know about Dafydd.

When we were undergrads, Brown and I wrote to Keith Joseoh about student finance. We wrote separately and from our university addresses. When Joseph replied – he wrote quite a rude reply, the same one to both of us – he made it clear that he knew that Brown and me were friends and also that we both came from Bridgwater in Somerset. We had not mentioned this in our letters.

Keith Joseph was actually the architect of Thatcherism. Unlike Thatch, he was intelligent enough to understand it, but he blew his chances at becoming Tory leader when he made a speech warning that the lower orders were breeding like rabbits and Something Had To Be Done.

The outcome of that rather rash speech was this:

 

Paul Dean made someone happy, because he was given a knighthood in 1985, the year in which the threats to Brown and me from the Top Docs really began to escalate and which my documents show was the year that the Welsh Office busied themselves with the beginning of their plan to blow me out of the water. In 1985 Mary Wynch won her appeal to the Master Of The Rolls and made legal history by suing Dafydd, thus receiving coverage in the London-based media. Then Alison Taylor refused to shut up.

In 1993, after my career in medical research had been ruined and the media careers of another two witnesses had also been destroyed, Sir Paul Dean became Baron Dean of Harptree of Wedmore in the County of Somerset. I don’t know what Dean’s connection to Wedmore was, but Gary Glitter lived at Wedmore for quite some time before he ended up in prison in Bristol for child porn offences. Professor Robert Owen, a surgeon from Liverpool who doubled up as the Medical Ombudsman for the Welsh Office and was Dafydd’s mate who concealed Dafydd’s crimes (see post ‘In Memoriam – Professor Robert Owen’) had a daughter who lived at Shapwick, a village on the Somerset levels not far from Wedmore. Ian Dunbar, the tame Prison Service Governor who was called in by the bent Home Secretary Douglas Hurd after the 1989 riots at Risley Remand Centre to try and get a rapidly unravelling situation back under control, was based in the south west and lived on the Somerset levels. See post ‘Include Me Out’ and other posts.

After the Risley Riots, there were frank admissions, even from the Home Office, that conditions at Risley were completely unacceptable. The women’s wing was shut down and major changes to the institution did follow. Michael Mansfield emerged as the hero of the hour when he represented some of the rioters, who were in Risley after being charged with serious crime. At no point did anyone mention that the hospital wing of Risley was full – and had been for years – of kids in care from north Wales and psych patients of Dafydd and it was they who were repeatedly found dead after ‘committing suicide by hanging’. See post ‘Include Me Out’. The patients whom I knew who had been in Risley all said ‘it’s full of murderers there, I was terrified’. It was Michael Mansfield’s clients that they were terrified of. There were kids from the north Wales children’s homes as young as their early teens in Risley and because they were on remand, they had not been convicted of any offence. That contingent of the Risley population were nearly always transferred to Denbigh, where once they had been sectioned for a year, the charges against them were dropped. Some of them were never seen again and most of the others died soon afterwards. Michael Mansfield’s clients went on to be found guilty as charged and received long prison sentences. None of this received any press coverage.

Another person who lived on the Somerset levels was a man who taught me at school, Ray Stanlake. I have been told that Stanlake was in touch with Dafydd and the gang…

 

Paul Dean, who was fairly obviously at the centre of many cesspits, was a Director of Charterhouse Pensions and the brewers Watney-Mann and Truman; a consultant to Grand Metropolitan and Antony Gibbs Pension Services; a Governor of BUPA and the Deputy Chairman of the PR firm Roward Panton. Paul Dean was on the governing body of the Church in Wales. Some of whose clergyman were fully on board with Dafydd et al.

Paul Dean’s rot went back a long way. From the outset, he was a supporter of Edward Heath, who was then Leader of the Opposition In 1969, Dean became Heath’s Deputy Spokesman on social security. Throughout his leadership of the Tory Party, Heath colluded with Dafydd et al. Dean was a big fan of private health and pension schemes.

 

One additional note about Paul Dean and his casting vote which accidentally liberalised abortion. It only happened because the anti-abortionists had tried to get the legislation that they wanted by the use of a tied vote on an amendment on the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill. Only days previously there had been a major Commons row over the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill, which people like Enoch Powell were hoping to use to outlaw research on embryos. One MP became very, very angry during the debate, because he had lost two children to an hereditary problem and knew that a third child would die as well. He got so angry that he banged his fist on a chair and damaged the chair. That MP was Dafydd Wigley. He was the Plaid MP for Caernarfon at the time and he knew that the trafficking gang operating under his nose had killed witnesses, including my house mate Anne. Dafydd Wigley really wanted the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill to pass.

So how did you persuade Paul Dean to use his casting vote to support you then Lord Wigley? Anything to do with that letter that I wrote you providing details of my experiences at the hands of Dafydd et al, to which you wrote me a very nice reply, saying that if there was anything that you could do at a Parliamentary level you would? Then when the intimidation of me became even worse, I wrote to you again. I didn’t hear back.

Ooh that was in about 1990 wasn’t it??

Yma O Hyd!

 

Now here’s someone else who was fully aware of the crimes of Dafydd and all related gangs who has successfully gone under the radar: Alan Jinkinson.

Alan Raymond Jinkinson is a trade unionist who was born in Sheffield. Jinkinson was Deputy General Secretary of NALGO, 1983-90; General Secretary of NALGO, 1990-93; General Secretary of UNISON, 1993-96, preceding the very good friend of the paedophiles, Rodney Bickerstaffe (see post ‘A Very COHSE Relationship With Some Very Nasty People’).

NALGO was the union which represented huge numbers of local gov’t employees, including many who staffed and managed children’s homes and were named as abusers or colluding with abuse. Some NALGO reps were named in abuse scandals, including one rep in north Wales/Cheshire. It was accepted that the NALGO rep in north Wales had abused children in care, so the solution to this was to allow him to take early retirement. He was a bit worried that he wouldn’t be able to begin drawing his pension early as well, but a letter from a helpful psychiatrist sorted that and the member of Dafydd’s gang was able to go off into the sunset into a comfortable early retirement avoiding any criminal charges.

There was one social worker in north Wales whom NALGO refused to support, although she was a fully paid up member – Alison Taylor. NALGO washed their hands of Alison and provided no support when Gwynedd County Council sacked her in Nov 1987, after informally suspending her in Dec 1986. In Dec 1986, Dafydd had me unlawfully arrested and imprisoned in the North Wales Hospital Denbigh and two/three days later Ollie Brooke, the Prof of Paediatrics at St George’s Hospital Medical School was imprisoned for child porn offences. Ollie’s gang had direct links to Dafydd and Lucille.

Alan Jinkson became the General Secretary of the newly merged UNISON on 1 July 1993. My trial at Bangor Magistrates Court for ‘staring at a social worker in Safeways’ took place in July 1993. It was planned to be a trial for screaming and swearing at her, putting her ‘in fear of immediate violence’, but once she was in the witness box, she started crying and admitted that she had lied to the police. The social worker concerned, Jackie Brandt, was a member of Dafydd and Lucille’s gang and had previously unlawfully detained me in Ysbyty Gwynedd. See post ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’. No complaints of mine against Brandt were ever investigated and neither was her perjury. I had to cough up £60 for looking at her in a supermarket.

Stop The Cuts!

 

Jinkinson stood for the Labour Party in the Orpington by-election, 1962. A supporter of Hugh Gaitskill, Jinkinson he attacked Eric Lubbock – a lifelong paedophiles’ friend himself (see previous posts) – the Liberal Party candidate for supporting unilateral nuclear disarmament. Lubbock won the seat, while Jinkinson took third place with 12.4% of the vote, losing his deposit.

A wonderful article about Jinkinson was published in the Indie on 29 Oct 1992. Here are some extracts:

Alan Jinkinson has rapidly become the most powerful public sector trade unionist in Britain…next year he is due to become head of the new Unison organisation of 1.4 million public sector workers, the largest union in the country.

Note to Gov’ts of all colours: There’s 1.4 million of us, many of us with the dirt on the health and social care services…

Political posturing is not in the character of Mr Jinkinson, who carefully weighs up each comment before making it, avoiding remarks that will upset any faction within the union, or which can be interpreted as favouring militancy. This balancing act is on display when he stresses that a public sector pay freeze, or award at less than the rate of inflation, would be met by a ‘measured response’, while hinting that some of the more militant members of the union could become difficult to restrain from taking strong action.

FINGS BREAK…

 … concedes that stringent public sector pay control is a very real possibility. ‘There appears to be a conspiracy between the bosses and the Government to attack public sector pay over the next 12 months…clearly angered by some of the rumours that came out of Conservative Party conference. ‘Allegedly, an unnamed minister said that it would be nice to have a Nalgo strike. That is provocative, irresponsible and does nothing for good industrial relations.’ He stresses that Nalgo and the other public service unions would respond with restraint. ‘That kind of view will not force Nalgo or anyone else out on to the streets.’
The only people forced onto the streets were the kids in care and Empowered Service Users.

Nalgo and the other leading public sector unions Nupe and Cohse have been in merger discussions for several years…the new union Unison will be in place next July. Mr Jinkinson is to be the general secretary until early 1996, when Rodney Bickerstaffe, currently of Nupe, is expected to take over.

The General Secretary of COHSE was David Williams, who trained as an Angel at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh in the Dark Ages. See post ‘A Very COHSE Relationship With Some Very Nasty People’.

…stressed that the unions would not co-operate in any exercise designed to cut the real wages of public services staff… the truth is that public sector workers have been taking more than their share of the pain for some years now.

Duw it’s hard. When we get caught abusing the kids in our care we have to get Dafydd to provide us with a letter to enable us to draw our pension early.

Take the NHS trust hospitals as an example. The pay of senior managers has increased enormously, in contrast to the pay of clerical and administration workers, which has fallen in net earnings by about 5.2 per cent. The best part of 100,000 of these workers are paid below the European Community minimum decency threshold of £207 per week.

Alan Jinkinson could have brought down those overpaid Trust senior managers overnight – including those in north Wales who were running a trafficking gang – if he’d blown the whistle on their criminality, corruption and concealment of patient harm and deaths. But he didn’t because some of his members were responsible.

‘The response of our members to pay policy will very much depend on that key word ‘fairness’. The fairer any policy is perceived to be the more measured any response will be. There are about 6 million in the public sector workforce, some of these covered by review bodies. If it was perceived that those covered by review bodies were treated better, the reaction would be very hostile indeed.

Note to Gov’t: We can muster 6 million at a push… Whatever would happen if Fings Started To Break?

Those not covered in the NHS already need an increase of 25 per cent to bring them up to comparative levels.

Don’t make me fucking laugh. In regions like north Wales, public service workers were in clover.

Mr Jinkinson does not see it as his role to help the Government in bringing about its revolution in public sector culture. ‘I don’t like CCT (compulsory competitive tendering), or all the talk about an ‘enabling’ local authority. We’ve got these citizen’s charters by the sackful, but they will not succeed until the public sector workforce is well-paid, well-managed and well-trained.

The sackfuls of Citizen’s Charters produced by John Major were indeed worthless, because the public service workers knew that they could abuse their positions with impunity. After all, they knew where the bodies were buried and Fings Break.

As well as merging into one giant union, the public service unions are also coping with the transfer of their members away from public employers into the private sector; whether into an NHS trust, a private company winning service contracts…Even within the local authority sector there is a strong move away from national pay bargaining towards local negotiation. According to Mr Jinkinson, such changes, though they pose threats, also provide opportunities.

Here comes the deal with New Public Management and neoliberalism… Ooh our members won’t be unemployed after all, they will be encouraged to form themselves into companies and consultancies,  where they will be commissioned by their former employers in the NHS and local authorities to ‘deliver services’ to their previous ‘client groups’ and they will continue to abuse them exactly as before. With the added bonus that those being abused will be told that they are Empowered and Have A Choice.

‘It has been an inevitable stimulus to Nalgo to adjust its delivery of services to its members. One or two people join a trade union for political reasons, but for most people it is a practical question of the value of the benefits at the workplace. We have had to adjust our ways of delivering services and train many hundreds of stewards that are now involved in local bargaining.

Told you so. The paedophiles’ managers and union reps made damn sure that the paedophiles picked up the new contracts.

The trend is towards devolution of provision of support services to district level. Unison is a catalyst to an even more radical approach to service delivery, which will be member-centred, a member-led union, serving all, from the highest-paid manager to the lowest-paid individual.’

Er, hasn’t really worked out that way has it?

One challenge facing Unison is persuading blue-collar and white-collar workers that they have a shared outlook. Tension between Nalgo members and other public sector workers has heightened in recent years as managers have overseen the contracting out of manual work.

The bastards have turned on each other in their pursuit of filthy lucre.

Now the boot is on the other foot, with Nalgo members facing commercial competition for their own jobs.

SCRAAAAP!!!!

Mr Jinkinson is adamant that the contracting out of work must not be used as a means of reducing rates of pay, and that members should resist pay levels being cut to make tender bids more competitive. ‘We say to our branches, ‘talk to your employers, get them to open their books, get into a rational dialogue, and get the best deal available, which is also the best deal for service quality and the local community.’

Fings Break…

We want to encourage the authorities to put in the most competitive bids, but there shouldn’t be cuts in pay to bring this about.’

The Empowered Service Users can take the hit, not Our Members.

Even though the change in public service culture is bitterly resented and opposed by the public sector unions, they are making parallel changes. Local authorities are recognising that many of their powers have gone, so they adopt a new role of community voice and vehicle for lobbying.

They gangs run the charidees, the ‘Service User Involvement Groups’, the Advocacy Associations…

Similarly, Mr Jinkinson sees Unison as a means of bringing about broader change in society.

I’m still waiting Alan.

He explained: ‘A union of 1.4 million people will have enormous influence in society at large, including the European Community, as a driving force for a return to a public sector culture, which very many members of the public now yearn for…

Their wishes for a genuine change in culture were ignored because it was Jinkinson who wielded power over Gov’ts, not the people in the receiving end of the shite, abusive, neglectful public services.

What is needed is increased public spending on housing, schools, sewers, and so on. What we don’t need is to bear down on public sector spending. What is missing in the economy is that indefinable thing called ‘confidence’. Cuts in public spending will bring a further twist to the deflationary spiral, and that is the opposite to what the economy needs at the present time.’

There never were substantial Cuts until very recently, as a result of the aftermath of the financial crisis in 2008. The Empowered Service Users saw no improvement in their services, because the services were run for the benefit of Jinkison’s members, not the Empowered Service Users. Any public sector workers that challenged the scam were sacked and like Alison Taylor, found that Mr Jinkinson and his mates were not in the least bit interested in their plight.

 

While I was reading some old political almanacs recently, I was reminded of a name from the past, which to my shame I had completely forgotten about, that of David Penhaligon. David Penhaligon was the Liberal MP for Truro, who was elected in 1974. Not only did Penhaligon know all about the doings of Jeremy Thorpe, the Liberal MP for North Devon and Liberal Party leader, but when Jeremy became a laughing stock following that rigged trial in 1979 after he was charged with conspiracy to murder his former gay lover Norman Scott and the Liberals dissolved into utter confusion but as ever kept their hopes up, David Penhaligon was considered to be likely to be their next leader. The thing that stopped him was being involved in a most unfortunate car accident which killed him. On Dec 22, 1986. Approx one week after Ollie Brooke went to prison and about 10 days after Dafydd had me unlawfully arrested and imprisoned.

David Penhaligon was brought up in Truro. He attended Truro School, where he knew musician Roger Taylor of Queen and then Cornwall Technical College. Penhaligon worked for Holman Brothers in Camborne as a research and development engineer working on rock drilling. By 1973 he had qualified as a Chartered Mechanical Engineer; he also took over from his father a sub-post office in Chacewater from 1967 (after his marriage in 1968 to Annette Lidgey, she ran the business). His Liberal activities led to some work in local broadcasting.

Penhaligon’s decision to join the Liberal Party was inspired in 1963 when, aged 19, he was an important witness to a murder case. His evidence, which supported the case of the defendant Dennis Whitty, was not enough to prevent him from being convicted and hanged. Penhaligon was appalled by capital punishment. He led the Truro Young Liberals and built up the local party (which had been the weakest in Cornwall) into one of the strongest; he was the chair of the Cornish Young Liberals, 1966-68. However he was not selected as Liberal candidate for Truro in the 1966 General Election (nor for any other seat) and he was also rejected for Falmouth and Camborne in 1968 apparently because his strong Cornish accent was thought unattractive.

By the mid-1980s, everyone loved David Penhaligon’s Cornish accent, what with Old Etonians, City Slickers and cousins and friends of Lilibet having taken quite a battering as a result of Jeremy Thorpe’s activities.

 

 

In the 1970 General Election, Penhaligon fought the Devon constituency of Totnes, when the previous candidate Paul Tyler transferred to Bodmin. Bodmin had previously been held by Peter Bessell for the Liberals. Bessell was a good mate of Thorpe’s and it was Bessell who gave evidence at Thorpe’s 1979 trial that Thorpe had openly discussed killing Norman Scott and the ways in which that could be done. During the trial, the famously biased Presiding judge, Joseph Cantley, trashed Bessell, Norman, Thorpe’s co-defendants and Andrew Newton, the man who openly admitted that he had been hired to kill Norman. The only person who could be believed was Jeremy and that was because he was married to Lilibet’s cousin and had shagged both Princess Margaret and Lord Snowdon, although that snippet wasn’t mentioned.

Bessell emigrated to California in 1974 and died there in 1985. David Penhaligon was one of the west country Liberals who would have known the full details re Jeremy and Norman. It was widely known that Norman was being threatened, harassed, robbed and beaten up when he lived in Devon and that Jeremy was behind it. Norman openly talked about his affair with Jeremy and how Jeremy had dumped him and had behaved appallingly ever since.

Justice Cantley might have told the world that Norman was a fantasist but at the time of Jeremy’s trial, I knew two people in Somerset who had Seen The Photos that Norman had of him and Jeremy… One of those people was a travelling salesman who flogged Kleeneze products no less and the other one was the baker from Stogursey, Mr Lovell. After Jeremy was acquitted, Mr Lovell was convinced that someone would have another go at bumping Norman off. To the amazement of many people, Norman remained alive. However Mr Lovell’s wife didn’t. Mr Lovell’s wife suffered from depression and had been a patient at Tone Vale. Tone Vale colluded with organised abuse, although not to the same extent as Dafydd and Denbigh. Mr Lovell’s wife was declared much improved and came home from Tone Vale. So imagine how shocked everyone was when many months later, Mr Lovell came home to find that she had hanged herself. No-one asked any questions, it was all a bit ‘cor poor old Mr Lovell, his wife must have been hiding how bad she felt’.

Mr Lovell had a teenage son and I think that it might have been him who found his mum’s body first. Mr Lovell’s son wanted to go in the Army and he was an admirer from a distance of Brown’s dad, because he once called at the house when Col Brown was in uniform and it wowed him. He had been in the Army cadets, seemed to get over his mum’s death but had the most terrible shock when he was rejected by the Army when he left school. He worked in a factory in Bridgwater instead. I am fairly sure that a few years later, he was found dead as well. Ooh well, he got it from his mum didn’t he…

No-one in the west country disbelieved Norman, they all knew that Jeremy was as guilty as they come. David Penhaligon will have known as well and he’ll have known many more people than I did who were witnesses to Jeremy’s shenanigans.

 

In 1970, Penhaligon polled poorly in the context of an election in which the party as a whole suffered. However, Penhaligon had acquired useful experience of fighting election campaigns and picked up additional tips from Wallace Lawler’s practices in inner-city Birmingham. David Penhaligon wasn’t a complete hayseed then.

In 1971 Penhaligon was easily selected as candidate for Truro, a seat which did not look an easier prospect than Totnes. This gave him three years in which to get his name known and meet his prospective constituents and when the election came in Feb 1974 he won nearly 21,000 votes and cut the majority of the sitting Tory MP to 2,561. Truro became the fourth ‘target’ constituency for the Liberals for the next election – which would take place within months because of the inconclusive outcome in February.

Penhaligon was readopted and worked on trying to persuade the remaining Labour voters in the seat to back him. In the Oct 1974 election, he was elected with a majority of 464 votes – the only Liberal gain of that election. In Parliament he swiftly won a reputation for humorous speeches, urging a national minimum wage and increased state pensions. He voted for fellow Cornish MP John Pardoe over David Steel in the Liberal leadership election of 1976. John Pardoe’s brother lived in the village where I spent my teenage years and Brown and I used to work on his farm in the summer holiday. See previous posts.

Penhaligon was hard to place in conventional political terms: he changed his mind over capital punishment, initially voting against in December 1974, but supporting it in December 1975. Which sort of reminds me of that old Python joke in ‘Election Special’: ‘A little pink pussycat has taken Barrow-in-Furness, that’s a gain from the Liberals there’.

Although frequently speaking on national issues, it was clear that Penhaligon’s main concern was local. He became known in particular for defending Cornish tin mining and local fishing fleets.

When the Lib-Lab pact was first mooted in March 1977, Penhaligon was initially opposed and spoke against it. He later came round and told the Liberal Assembly in September 1977 that it had achieved an ‘economic revolution’. I missed that particular revolution. At a special Assembly in January 1978 Penhaligon was a star speaker in persuading the delegates representing Liberal members to continue the pact. The pact allowed the Liberals to influence Gov’t legislation.

Part of Penhaligon’s support for the Lib-Lab pact was his fear that an early general election would result in a poor performance for the Liberals, and his own seat might be vulnerable. In October 1978 after the pact had lapsed, he explained that “Turkeys don’t volunteer for Christmas!”. The scandal over Jeremy Thorpe – who was charged with conspiracy to murder in August 1978 – was a matter of particular concern and Penhaligon urged Thorpe to stand down and the Liberal Party not to endorse him. When Thorpe did seek re-election, Penhaligon refused to help his campaign. Despite his narrow majority and the belief that he was the most vulnerable of the Liberal MPs, Penhaligon kept his seat with a much larger majority (8,708) in the 1979 General Election.

The Lib-Lab pact involved two desperate parties with much to hide doing a great deal of wheeling and dealing while both trying to shaft each other. At the same time, no-one trusted Jeremy, who was known to be capable of striking a bargain with anyone at all in his desperation to gain power, as he had when he almost joined Ted Heath’s Gov’t some years previously.

After the bomb exploded and Jeremy was arrested and charged, some months before his trial, an alternative newspaper in Rochdale printed allegations that Cyril Smith, another high profile Liberal MP, was sexually abusing boys. David Steel was so concerned at the damage that would be done to the Liberal Party and to Thorpe’s chances of being found not guilty if Smith’s activities found their way into the London-based media, that he utilised the services of the crooked barrister George Carman QC to ensure that the stories about Smith did not appear in the UK wide media.

George Carman was Jeremy’s barrister at the 1979 trial. Carman had until then been based in the north of England and he had lived in Cheshire. He mixed with bent coppers, journos, gangsters and sex workers and had a serious drink and gambling problem. He was also very violent. People did not mess with George Carman, they were very, very frightened of him. Carman knew about Dafydd and the gang in north Wales/Cheshire and after Carman died it was revealed that although he had never acted for Jimmy Savile, he had been retained by him, which was quite enough to have shut everyone up re Savile’s offending.

Getting Thorpe off made Carman’s reputation. He moved to London, where one of his pupil barristers was Miranda. Cherie also worked in Carman’s chambers until 1988. In the 1990s Carman lived in Wimbledon, along with so many of the Top Docs of St George’s, including Prof Geoffrey Chamberlain, Ollie Brooke’s friend and one of those who had colluded with Ollie and the gangs linked to him, including Dafydd’s in north Wales/Cheshire.

For the full background on George Carman, see posts ‘No Ordinary Methods’ and ‘No Ordinary Methods – Supplementary Post’.

 

In June 1981 Dr Death entered Penhaligon’s life, when the SDP-Alliance was formed. The Dr Death who was the MP for Plymouth and who personally knew some of the Top Docs in north Wales involved in the trafficking gang. Dr Death’s fellow travellers in the Gang Of Four all knew about Dafydd and the gang. See post ‘We’ve Been Expecting You’.

David Penhaligon supported the SDP-Liberal Alliance from the start, although he resented SDP attempts to take control of the Liberal Party’s target seats. He was named in January 1982 as one of the ‘firemen’ who would sort out any disagreements between the parties. Penhaligon was particularly prominent in the 1983 election campaign in which he spoke for the Liberal Party on Transport, Industry and Energy. After the election he became an early proponent of a merger between the SDP and the Liberals under a single leader, largely to avoid disputes over allocations of Parliamentary seats.

From 1983 Penhaligon headed the Liberal by-election unit which planned the campaigns in individual seats. At the Liberal Assembly in September 1984 he was chosen as President-elect of the Liberal Party and served as Party President, 1985-86. This carried with it the job of presiding over the Liberal Assembly at the end of his term.

Penhaligon was appointed as Chief Spokesman on the economy in 1985. He was a central figure in planning the Alliance General Election campaign at the time of his death.

At 6.45 am on 22 December 1986, he was travelling to a post office to meet workers there when a van skidded on an icy road and hit his Rover SD1 car near Truck Fork, Probus, Cornwall. Penhaligon was pronounced dead at the scene. The van driver was not prosecuted for the accident. The inquest held in March 1987 strongly suggested that Penhaligon was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, nor was the driver of the van, who was thrown out of his vehicle and suffered two broken legs as a result. Penhaligon’s injuries were extensive fracture of his ribs and fracture of the neck vertebrae. The cause of death was damage to the aorta as well as massive damage to the spleen and liver.

David Penhaligon was very much a west country figure, but the other stronghold of the Liberal Party was of course in Wales. In his various efforts to have Jeremy reigned in, at one point when Norman Scott was living in Wales, a lady who found out about Jeremy’s dreadful conduct was friends with Emlyn Hooson, the Liberal MP for Montgomery. She made representation to Hooson re Jeremy and the Liberal Party set up an inquiry. It ended with Lord Frank Byers, the grandfather of the Labour MP Lisa Nandy, hurling abuse at Norman and Norman walking out and subsequently making an extensive statement to the police. Which was ignored. Hooson told people that he was horrified at Thorpe’s activities, but he didn’t try to stop them or even speak up after Thorpe was arrested and charged. Hooson was one of the corrupt barristers on the Chester and Wales Circuit who spent his career colluding with Dafydd and the gang. Hooson grew up in Denbighshire and was a close friend of Sir Ronnie Waterhouse.

If Emlyn Hooson knew about Jeremy, the rest of polite society in Wales will have. Norman and Jeremy both had links to Wales, including to Denbigh. After he dared tell people about his problems with Jeremy, Norman was discredited by that tried and tested method, a Top Doctor. Namely Desmond Curran of St George’s Hospital Medical School. They have a long and fine tradition there…

See previous posts, including ‘My How Things Haven’t Changed’ for the full background on the Jeremy and Norman story.

 

Penhaligon was killed at the end of 1986, which was the year that the Westland Affair nearly brought down Thatcher’s Gov’t. The Westland Affair was a huge scrap within the Tory Party over the fate of an ailing Somerset engineering company in the Liberal MP Paddy Ashdown’s constituency. The scrap was between Thatcher’s Cabinet Ministers and was precipitated by Michael Heseltine, who was born in Swansea, had been the MP for Tavistock in Devon, 1966-74 and who really, really wanted to be PM (see post ‘A Legend Lives’). The Minister of State at the DTI at the time, the Dept at the centre of the scrap, was Sir Peter Morrison. Sir Anthony Meyer, a north Wales Tory MP with Ugandan interests who knew about Dafydd and the gang benefited from the Westland Affair (see post ‘You Know I’m No Good’). A number of the other MPs who took advantage of the Westland Affair were known to people in Somerset who knew me and knew what was happening to me at the hands of Dafydd and the gang. Some of those individuals did very, very well for themselves after Westland (see posts ‘Those Who Are Ready To Serve’ and ‘Upper Class Twit Of The Year – Shooting Themselves’.)

 

There were just so many unscrupulous people joining in the feeding frenzy during 1986 and so many people with a great deal to lose that it wouldn’t have been in the realms of fantasy to imagine that a few of them had got together and decided to deal with the dangerously popular Mr Penhaligon, a man who knew Peter Bessell and was on the scene back in Bessell and Thorpe’s heyday.

David Penhaligon’s son Matthew has been an active member of the Lib Dems and was the Party’s candidate for the Mayoralty of Hackney in May 2006.

 

David Penhaligon’s cousin was the actress Susan Penhaligon. Susan was one of the fruitiest actresses of the 1970s, up there with Angharad Rees, who was the daughter of Dafydd’s mate Professor Linford Rees at Barts (see post ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’). Susan and Angharad will have known each other and they’ll both have known a few politicians as well, particularly as for many years Susan was active in the Liberal Party. During those years when Jeremy Thorpe was still spoken of as a natty dresser, a charming man about town and a possible future PM, rather than simply being the butt of homophobic jokes by teenage boys.

Susan’s TV roles included parts in ‘Bouquet of Barbed Wire’, ‘Count Dracula’, ‘Doctors’, ‘Casualty’ and ‘Tales Of The Unexpected’. On stage she starred in ‘Death Trap’ and her films included ‘House Of Mortal Sin’, ‘Nasty Habits’ and ‘No Sex Please We’re British’.

From July 1986, David Penhaligon had employed Matthew Taylor, an Oxford graduate, as his research assistant. Taylor was selected to follow him as Liberal candidate for Truro and was duly returned in the Truro by-election in 1987, where he remained as the MP until he stood down in 2010.

Matthew Taylor is the adopted son of Kenneth Taylor, a TV script writer best known for ‘The Jewel In The Crown’. In 2008 Matthew traced his birth mother and learnt that his great-grandfather had been another Liberal MP Sir Percy Harris who served later as an allied-Progressive MP.

Taylor was educated at Treliske Preparatory School (now known as Truro School Prep) in Truro and University College School in Hampstead. Alan Barker, the husband of Trumpers, was the Headmaster of University College School for a number of years, probably when Matthew Taylor was there. Trumpers aka Baroness Jean Trumpington was the junior Health Minister who appointed Jimmy Savile to the task force which managed Broadmoor. In Trumpers’ younger day she had been one of the weekenders at Cliveden, along with the call girls, Russian spies, Gov’t Ministers and members of the Royal Family; Trumpers’s mate Sally Norton had been Bill Astor’s first wife. See previous posts.

Matthew Taylor studied at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford. Taylor campaigned in his first general election in 1979 when he was 16 and joined the Cornwall anti-nuclear alliance a year later. While at Oxford, he was elected as President of the Oxford University Student Union, 1985–86 on the Lib/SDP Alliance ticket.

Matthew Taylor succeeded Penhaligon’s former Truro seat in early 1987 and retained it for the Liberals at the 1987 General Election. That was the election of such high stakes that all parties concealed the rapidly escalating chaos in north Wales and Dafydd and the gang designed an elaborate trap in the weeks before the General Election which was supposed to culminate in me being imprisoned for a serious offence just after it. Risley Remand Centre and the Mental Health Act Commission were fully in cahoots, but everything unravelled when a nursing officer and a Sgt in Bangor Police Station didn’t tell the lies that they were expected to tell. See posts eg. ‘Workers’ Play Time’ and ‘Security, Security’.

Taylor’s celebrity status as the Baby Of The House gave him early access to political media and TV programmes including the BBC’s ‘Question Time’ while being an MP in a small party brought quick promotion to the front bench as local gov’t spokesman.

Matthew Taylor had a successful track record in backing leaders of his party, including Paddy Ashdown and Charles Kennedy, whose successful leadership campaign Taylor led in 1999 after Ashdown stepped down. His reward was to be made the Party’s Treasury spokesman, 1999-03, under Charles Kennedy. So that’s where Matthew Taylor was when the Waterhouse Report was published. Taylor was then Chair of the Lib Dems, 2003-05, as Charles Kennedy was busy killing himself with alcohol but instead of trying to save his life the Lib Dems just worried about what would happen if it became public that Kennedy was drunk on TV.

Taylor announced in 2007 that he would not be seeking re-election to Parliament and did not stand in the 2010 General Election. The Truro and St Austell constituency he represented was then abolished after a boundary review.

So what became of this minor politician who had never been in Gov’t and bagged his seat as a result of the untimely and unexpected death of a man who knew a great deal about a VIP paedophile gang that looked as though it was in deep trouble with the jailing of Ollie, Dr Big in London? He was given a peerage of course. In July 2010. Which was just about when it became clear that a criminal re-investigation into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal would be launched and that a judicial review would be taking place of the Waterhouse Inquiry in the face of so many allegations that it was a huge cover-up. Oh yeh and Brown and I began publishing about our experiences with the north Wales mental health services as well.

In December 2015 Matthew Taylor was appointed President of the National Association of Local Councils.

 

Taylor married Vicky Garner, a former Director of pressure group Surfers Against Sewage, in 2007.

I don’t know what this lot are campaigning against sewage for, they have nothing to offer public life but sewage.

Taylor & Garner Ltd provides business consultancy services, based in Roche, Cornwall.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch in Wales, the Welsh Gov’t have announced that the Top Docs and Angels are getting an even bigger pay rise than the one which they have received in England. In a week of dreadful headlines about the dire state of the NHS in Wales, accompanied by stories of scandal, neglect and fuckwittery. By the time that pay rise hits the bank accounts of the Top Docs, the Public Inquiry into the ‘Tainted Blood’ Scandal will be well underway and it will be clear to the general public that the Top Docs knew that thousands of NHS patients were knowingly being given infected blood products which would kill many of them, but the Top Docs said not a word to anyone but other Top Docs. Who of course were not agreeing to accept those infected blood products themselves or for their families.

Carwyn is thinking of backing the Baroness of Ely as the next FM for Wales because she is in possession of ovaries. She is also in possession of a husband who is a Top Doctor who knew about that infected blood and who will also bag the pay rise. The corks will be popping in the Baroness’s house.

As for those who were witnesses to the crimes of Dafydd’s gang and who think that they haven’t appeared on this blog yet because I’ve forgotten about them, no I haven’t. I’ll introduce here another witness to the appalling abuse and neglect of some Empowered Service Users in Bethesda as well as to the framing of F and the hijacking of his child to whom he was denied access and who was given to a bunch of child abusers by Gwynedd Social Services. I am talking about a Blodwyn aka ‘Blod’ of Coetmor Road, Bethesda. Blod had a baby called Liam at pretty much the same time as F’s baby was born. Blod and her husband knew the family who lied about F and fleeced him of his money and property. Blod had been wanting a baby for years but she didn’t have Liam until she was in her late 30s. Blod was of the opinion that Liam was the result of the fertility Top Docs at Ysbyty Gwynedd. I’ve got news for Blod; those Top Docs did not know their arses from their elbows, they really were clueless, Liam will have had sod all to do with whatever they thought that they were doing.

When Liam was a toddler, there were people in Bethesda who had what would now be called ‘child protection concerns’ about him. Not that anyone said anything, Blod was an aggressive unpleasant piece of work and it was only Empowered Service Users who ever found that they were sleighted as being a risk to children. Blod however found one Empowered Service User very useful indeed. A vulnerable woman in Bethesda who’s whole family were grossly neglected by the Top Docs and Arfon Community Mental Health Team and who was unable to have children herself. Blod cultivated her company and in return for a glimpse of Liam, was subjected to hard luck stories by Blod regarding Blod’s poverty – stories which were not true – and the Empowered Service User was so concerned at the thought of a Baby Going Without that she ended up handing over a good proportion of her disability benefits. I watched the scam escalate over a period of months until it became very obvious that there was exploitation almost as good as that to which F had initially been subjected as he was snared by predators.

One day I made a comment to one of the GPs in Bethesda surgery about what was going on. I was told that it didn’t matter, because buying things for Blod’s baby gave the Empowered Service User so much happiness, what with her not being able to have children herself. The Empowered Service User as a young woman had been due to inherit a considerable amount of money from her mother after her mother died. She was swindled out of nearly all of it by a crooked lawyer in cahoots with a Top Doctor. Bethesda surgery knew about that swindle, so a few years later they encouraged another one.

I Told You I Was Trouble

My post ‘A Discovery Of Witches’ mentioned the many unfortunate events which befell the former MP Denis MacShane and his former partner newsreader Carol Barnes, as well as Carol’s children. Carol knew a great deal about the Westminster Paedophile Ring and the branch of it run by Dafydd and John Allen’s gang when she lived with Denis MacShane. Denis MacShane was the only MP who was imprisoned as a result of the Parliamentary expenses scandal, although his fiddling was not on a greater scale than that of some other MPs. MacShane was sentenced for fraud – he spent part of his sentence in HMP Belmarsh, a high security prison used for those convicted of terrorist offences, among others – by Justice Nigel Sweeney in 2014.

Sir Nigel Hamilton SweeneyMr Justice Sweeney, studied law at the University of Nottingham. Ken Clarke practised as a barrister in Nottingham before he was elected for a Nottingham constituency. Nigel Sweeney was called to the Bar in 1976 at the Middle Temple, where he was made a Bencher in 1997. Sir Ronnie Waterhouse was a leading light in Middle Temple; Ronnie was a Bencher and also served as Treasurer for some years.

Prior to being appointed a High Court judge, Sweeney practised as a barrister from 6 King’s Bench Walk. As a barrister, Sweeney was prosecuting counsel in a number of notable criminal trials, including those of the perpetrators of the 1984 Brighton bombing and Michael Stone, who was convicted of the 1996 murders of Lin and Megan Russell. The Russells were murdered in Kent, where they had lived for just three weeks after having moved there from Gwynedd. There was no forensic evidence against Michael Stone; he was arrested after a Top Doctor rang the police and told them that Stone fitted the ‘profile’ of the person whom the police believed committed the murder. Stone was an addict who had grown up in care where he had been sexually and physically assaulted. Before Lin and Megan were killed, a secure psychiatric unit refused to treat Michael Stone because they believed that he was ‘dangerous’. When Lin’s husband Shaun Russell revealed this on Radio 4, the NHS organisation concerned denied it. Shaun was later proved to be correct.

Sir Robert Francis QC, the barrister who acted for Drs Tony and Sadie Francis when they tried to have me imprisoned in 1991, Chaired the Inquiry into the care and treatment of Michael Stone. Robert Francis found serious ‘failings’ but as is standard practice in such cases, Francis played down just how utterly useless the NHS and social services were. See previous posts.

Michael Stone has always denied killing Lin and Megan and his sister also maintains that he is innocent. Stone and his legal team believed that the forensic examination of a shoelace that was found at the scene of the crime could clear his name. The shoelace was ‘lost’ in transit between the police and another agency.

After Lin and Megan were killed, Shaun moved back to north Wales with Josie, his daughter who was badly injured by whoever killed her mum and sister. Shaun is a biologist who works at Bangor University – I’m fairly sure that he worked at the University before the family moved to Kent.

Shaun’s family were attacked by someone who bludgeoned them over the head – in July 1996, the month after William Hague announced the Waterhouse Inquiry. Paul Bates, the man who threatened to kill Brown in 1983 – my requests for help from Dr D.G.E. Wood, the GP who ran the Student Health Centre and Dr Adrian Bell, my tutor in the School of Plant Biology were ignored – some years later tracked Brown down and tried to kill him by bashing his head against the pavement. Bates went looking for Brown again in 1996 but Brown had covered his tracks well.

Excuse me police – can you wake up from that very deep slumber of yours please? You’ve been snoring for so long that you’re now in competition with Sleeping Beauty, the central character in the fairy tale which was later adapted by the Brothers Grimm.

As a High Court judge, Sir Nigel presided over the 2013 trial of the former Lib Dem MP and Secretary of State for Energy and Change Chris Huhne and his ex-wife, Vicky Pryce, for perverting the course of justice (see post ‘A Discovery Of Witches’). Denis MacShane is the former partner of Vicky Pryce. Sweeney was the Presiding judge in the trial of Rolf Harris for various counts of indecent assault dating back to the 1960s.

In Feb 2015, Nigel Sweeney wrote an article for ‘The Sunday Times’, on the theme of ‘justice must always be seen to be done’.

I don’t need to comment.

 

 

Bangor University publish a magazine called the ‘Bangoriad’, for Bangor alumni. I was introduced to the joys of the ‘Bangoriad’ by a friend of mine when I worked at Bangor. The obituaries in the ‘Bangoriad’ are wonderful, a great many of them are so obviously obits of paedophiles’ friends. One man who’s obit appeared in the ‘Bangoriad’ was Professor Wynn Humphrey  Davies, who died in June 2007.

Professor Wynn Humphrey Davies was described in the ‘Bangoriad’ as ‘a remarkable man who dedicated his life to the service of Bangor University after a distinguished academic career spanning 40 years. He had graduated from Bangor in the 1930s, spent a short period as a member of staff before becoming a Lecturer, then Reader at Imperial College and finally Professor of Electrical Engineering at Queen Mary College, London. He became a member of the University Council in Bangor in the mid-1970s and served on it for 29 years, chairing the University’s Finance Committee for 23 years. He was instrumental in establishing the University’s Development Trust (for fund-raising purposes) during the centenary in 1984 and he Chaired the Trustees for 16 years until 2000. He was awarded an honorary doctorate of the University of Wales in 1985, and was made a Freeman of the City of London in 1996. He received an MBE in 2002.’

Dr David Roberts, the University Registrar, was quoted as saying: ‘Wynn was a man of immense intellectual energy, a profound thinker about higher education policy, and he had a restless drive to get things done. He will be missed by all who knew and worked with him.’

Dr David Roberts was an admirable figure, who was known to be performing valiant work with regard to defusing the bombs that the paedophiles’ friend planted around the University, but sadly there were so many paedophiles’ friends planting so many bombs that Dr Roberts couldn’t always get there in time. We used to marvel that Dr Roberts looked in such good form considering the stress that he must have incurred heading off the paedophiles’ friends at every turn. One of my friends observed that Dr Roberts looked in such good nick in compared to most of the other senior staff at Bangor. He commented that David Roberts had sparkling eyes and was the picture of health, whereas most of the others looked a bit rough and had very obviously attended too many University buffets.

I only ever saw David Roberts look worried on one occasion and that was when Sophie Wessex aka Mrs Prince Edward was on a visit to Bangor University. The Lord Lieutenant of Gwynedd was at that time Huw Daniel, the corrupt judge who was involved in the attempt to stitch me up for ‘threats to kill’ in 2004 (see post ‘Interesting Happenings In The Legal System’) and Huw Daniel was in the party accompanying Sophie. I was walking past just as the fat crook emerged into the car park with Sophie and Dr Roberts. David Roberts went pale when he saw me – everybody knew what Daniel had been involved in and they also knew that my office wall was covered in newspaper clippings of Daniel, accompanied by satirical comments – and looked seriously worried. Sorry about that Dr Roberts, I honestly wouldn’t have said a word to the bent bastard on University premises, I was waiting for the right time to expose him by the might of the pen. Or indeed the keyboard.

One fat crook dressed up like General Pinochet, presenting a cut glass something or other to a lucky prize-winner:

 

Dr Laurence Chesterman – Behind The Facade – Service ...

 

When Huw Daniel thought that he was going to be sending me to prison for ‘threats to kill’ – before the case against me collapsed – he was very rude about Bangor University in open Court in Caernarfon. He was very cross that they had given me a place to do a PhD and that my PhD supervisor wrote a letter in support of me.

Huw, do you happen to know why there was an organised attempt to undermine the VC of Bangor University who was in post when I was undertaking my PhD and for the following few years? Indeed, did you know anything about the plan by some of the paedophiles’ friends to frame him for a criminal offence? Huw, did you know that after you failed to have the opportunity to imprison me on the basis of the perjury of the staff of the Hergest Unit, that someone tried to have me struck off the teaching register nonetheless, but that the junior Gov’t Minister who cleared my name was a friend of the VC of Bangor University?

After the charge of ‘threatening to kill’ was withdrawn, Huw Daniel praised the conduct of the staff of the Hergest Unit. He also told the press that Alun Davies – the corrupt manager of the Hergest Unit who had perjured himself – as well as his family no less, were ‘victims’ of mine. Huw Daniel was the judge with responsibility for Mental Health Tribunals in Wales.

Huw Daniel’s father, J.E. Daniel, was one of the early members and Presidents of Plaid, along with Saunders Lewis. Dafydd was friends with Saunders Lewis when Dafydd was a junior Top Doctor.

I think that there has only been one case in which a British judge has been convicted and imprisoned. Hey Huw, do you think that Wales can provide the second case? I know a great many people who’d be delighted to wave you off in the meat wagon. Including all those poor sods who when they were kids in care were buggered, beaten to a pulp and then fitted up by Dafydd and the paedophile gang.

Don’t bend over in the showers to pick up the soap Huw, Mr Big might be standing behind you…

One of the Hergest Unit patients who had been illegally imprisoned by Dafydd used to have a great time ringing him up and saying that sort of thing and Dafydd used to go apeshit. This man used to tell me that Dafydd seemed to be really homophobic and hated any jokes about homosexuality. So of course Dafydd was on the receiving end of quite a lot of them. One day poor old Dafydd couldn’t take it any more and he screamed down the phone ‘if you make any more offensive and obscene calls to this house I’ll report you to the police’. Only Dafydd screamed that at me. When it very obviously wasn’t me making the calls. Not that it held old Dafydd back. He then compiled an affidavit of fiction for the High Court in Liverpool in which he claimed that I was ringing him up making the calls (see post ‘These Sharks Are Crap As Well’)…

When those calls were being made, everyone knew that Dafydd was shagging female patients, but the person who made those calls and I had no idea that Dafydd was running the paedophile gang which targeted the boys in the children’s homes in north Wales. I didn’t realise that all the abuse and trafficking in north Wales was the work of one gang – Dafydd’s. I knew that Dafydd targeted female mental health patients and I also knew that girls in care and women with learning disabilities were being abused as well as boys in care, but I thought that it was the work of different groups of predators who were going for different groups of victims. No, it was a free for all.

On one occasion, years after the Waterhouse Report but not long before Operation Pallial, I told Ella Fisk, a senior nurse at the Hergest Unit, that I was convinced that Dafydd was involved with the paedophile ring in some way but I didn’t quite know how and Ella absolutely assured me that I was wrong, saying ‘Dafydd’s never been involved with child psychiatry’. No, but his colleagues were and his mistress, children’s social worker Lucille Hughes, was Director of Gwynedd Social Services. Furthermore, Dafydd would ‘treat’ the parents of the children targeted: deem those parents incapable of looking after their kids, thus ensuring that the kids would be taken into care; diagnose them as psychotic if they complained about what was happening to their kids; or that old staple, maintain that it was they who had abused their children, no-one else. Dafydd’s main function however was to enter the arena when the kids were young adults and declare them ‘schizophrenic’ if they ever told anyone what had happened to them in the children’s homes. Just to ensure that no-one would ever take a witness statement from them, Dafydd and the gang would then fit them up for a criminal offence.

I think that they must have gone really bonkers when they decided to try the same thing with a Vice Chancellor. Dafydd  – a man who cut his teeth on former kids in care, the learning disabled and mental health patients, then he graduated onto postgrads studying in London Medical Schools and then he planned to go for the jackpot and frame a VC who’d been Governor of the BBC.

 

Weird But True!

 

Dafydd, you are truly crackers, as is everyone who let you get away with it all.

Lord John Walton of Detchant, the Bastard of Newcastle-upon-Tyne:

  • Appointment with the Dean - City Church Newcastle

 

Dr David Roberts will be forever remembered for presiding over the Graduation Ceremony of Dysfunction after the VC, who was the target of a full blown onslaught from the paedophile gang and their friends, retired (see post ‘A Discovery Of Witches’). Because the VC had departed, there was a hiatus before a new VC arrived and the paedophiles’ friends ran riot in the way that kids do if the teacher has to leave the classroom. The paedophiles’ friends did everything possible to cause problems at the graduation ceremony. The paedophiles’ friends believed that they had triumphed because the University had recently made an announcement saying that the VC wasn’t going to work out his notice as planned, he was leaving immediately. As any fule kno, that was because he had been appointed as a Spad to the Welsh Gov’ts Education Minister and he felt that it would be a conflict of interest to serve in both roles. One of the paedophiles’ friends put a rumour around that the VC had been caught helping himself to the University funds and that’s why he’d suddenly left. Which is of course the reason why so many paedophiles’ friends have had to leave posts in a hurry. A nice bit of projection there Dafydd’s friends! You pillocks.

Thus Dr Roberts was called upon to do the bit at graduation. It was certainly a bizarre ceremony. Huw Daniel and his wife were sitting in the audience at the front alongside some other paedophiles’ friends glowering at me and that bestest of paedophiles’ friends Aled Griffiths aka the Buffet Slayer (see previous posts) had done a fiddle with some other paedophiles’ friends to ensure that he was awarded a Teaching Fellowship (an honour for excellence in teaching). The Slayer didn’t usually bother to turn up to give his lecturers and there had been many complaints about him by the students. Furthermore, on one occasion he broke into the office of another lecturer and removed books without his permission and that lecturer was sitting next to me as the Slayer was given his Teaching Fellowship at the ceremony by one of his mates, after this mate made a 40 minute speech extolling the achievements of the Slayer. After the ceremony, at the graduation lunch, students could be heard shrieking ‘Aled fucking Griffiths has been given a Teaching Fellowship, what is going on?’ Not that the Slayer minded, the whole Griffiths Mafia turned up – a paedophiles’ friend every one of them – armed with bottles of champagne to celebrate the occasion. Furthermore, the Slayers’ mate spent so long waxing lyrical about the attributes of the Slayer that there was no time for that year’s guest of honour, Sir Simon Jenkins, to make a speech. Sir Simon just made a little quip about people being in need of lunch and that was it.

The Slayer is known to be immune to embarrassment. Among all the complaints about him and the constant scandals which enveloped the members of his family who were running Gwynedd and Conwy Social Services, somehow he managed to ensure that one of the prizes given to the law students was the Griffiths Cup, not realising that the usual procedure is to wait until one is dead before a cup is awarded in one’s name. The brighter law students were rolling around laughing at the idea of winning the Griffiths Cup and one Professor asked if there was a saucer to go with it.

It was much to Dr Roberts’s credit that, apart from the law students who were well-acquainted with the excesses of the Slayer, the graduates and their guests didn’t realise that a paedophile gang had tried to wreck the graduation ceremony.

 

I met Professor Wynn Humphrey Davies on a few occasions, as a result of him, at a ripe old age, touring the University with regard to his fundraising efforts. He turned up at the open plan office where I did my PhD on a few occasions and I and my colleagues entertained him until our boss was available. We gave Professor Davies cups of tea and fed him biscuits and doughnuts. He later told our boss that he had trained us well and we provided the best hospitality in the University.

So it was with some sadness that I have to report that the lovely old boy who used to come and visit us was almost certainly a paedophiles’ friend of the highest order.

Wynn Humphrey Davies worked at Imperial College until 1956. He was there alongside Sir Owen Saunders, a mathematician and engineer who spent most of his career at Imperial College and seems to have been the reason why Imperial thrived and expanded enormously during the middle years of the 20th century. Saunders became an incredibly powerful man and served as VC of London University, 1967-69. Before his time ruling over Imperial, Saunders worked in numerous places and with numerous people, including in Gov’t, which left him in a position to gain knowledge of naughtiness – and criminal wrongdoing – in high places, including in The Admiralty, when scandals involving Russian spies and gay sex between people who pretended that they had no interest in such matters prevailed there. Saunders will have known that the Top Doctors in the London Medical Schools were facilitating organised abuse, as well as that organised by Dafydd et al and Saunders remained highly influential years after he retired. See post ‘The White Heat Of This Revolution’ for further information on Sir Owen Saunders.

Wynn retained links with Imperial after he left. He will have still been in touch with them all down there when the physicist Lord Brian Flowers, who had also been a big wig at Imperial – and grew up in Swansea – was concealing the most appalling practices at the University of London, including at the Royal Postgraduate Medical School/Hammersmith Hospital and St George’s Hospital Medical School, practices including of course organised abuse of children and vulnerable people but also large scale research fraud (see previous posts). As part of his remit, Brian Flowers provided an umbrella for Dafydd and the gang in north Wales. Flowers became an even bigger wig than Sir Owen Saunders, Flowers made it into the Lords (see previous posts).

The deal between Hammersmith Hospital and Bangor University was symbolically sealed with the marriage of Richard Bentall, the son of cardiac surgeon Sir Hugh Bentall who ruled the roost at Hammersmith (see post ‘Interesting Facts’) and the daughter of Eifion Jones, the Dean of Science at UCNW/Bangor. Eifion’s daughter – she is called Rhian or Rhiannon, I can’t remember which – became an Angel, but her first degree was in plant biology. She studied in the Plant Biology Dept at Bangor which employed Dr Chris Wood, the wife of the corrupt GP Dr D.G.E. Wood and Ralph Oxley, who’s wife Isobel Hargreaves worked as a social worker for Gwynedd Social Services. The rest of the staff in the Dept of Plant Biology were pretty much aware of what was going on too. One lecturer, John Wilson, was known to be picking up local school girls for sex himself and another lecturer, the vile John Farrar, was having an affair with one of the students. It was with her full consent and they subsequently married, but things did look a little grubby when she was given a job as a research assistant with John Farrar as soon as she graduated. The helpful link continued into Stel Farrar’s later life. Years later, she was given a job teaching Welsh for adults in the Dept which was headed by Meri Huws, who had previously worked as a social worker for Gwynedd Social Services, along with Isobel et al… What was Richard Bentall when he married Eifion Jones’s daughter? Er, student in the Dept of Psychology, which at that time was dominated by Dafydd.

Richard Bentall was a student in Psychology alongside Dafydd’s daughter Dwynwen, who’s degree results were too poor for her to have been offered a place to do a PhD under normal circumstances, so Dafydd had a word in a few ears…

It was in 1983 that the crazy Trishles aka Patricia Margaret Edwards, a trainee technician at Bangor University, moved into our student house and caused havoc, relieving us of money, stealing from us and making a fallacious rape allegation against a young man in Bangor (see posts ‘He Got On His Bike And Looked For Work’ and ‘A Local Boy Made Good’). Dr D.G.E. Wood and the staff of the University were fully aware of Trishles’s excesses but refused to help us. I have recently been told that Trishles was probably one of the undercover officers who was sent to bother us when we had been placed under surveillance because of the fears that Brown and I would publish something about Wood and Gwynne the lobotomist.

The shenanigans of Trishles would have demonstrated quite clearly to the security services that not only was there a trafficking ring operating in UCNW, but profoundly vulnerable ‘trainees’ on the Manpower Services Commission employment scheme were being given no training and no pastoral care either. Furthermore, the Trishles saga also showed that undergrads were being blamed for the serious dereliction of duty of care on the part of senior staff, but all of this was ignored by MI5 or Special Branch or whoever it was who sent Trishles our way.

 

Wynn Humphrey Davies became a member of UCNW Council in the mid-1970s and remained on it for 29 years. So Wynn was on the Council when Mary Wynch, a secretary in the Agriculture Dept, was unlawfully arrested and imprisoned by Dafydd and not one member of staff said one word in her defence; Wynn was there throughout Peak Paedophile years; he was there when Dafydd worked the fiddle to get Dwynwen the PhD place that she should never have had and when Dafydd tried to embezzle money from the University; he was there for the nuptials of Richard Bentall and the Daughter of the Dean; Wynn was there when the paedophile gang caused havoc in the School of Social Sciences (see posts ‘Badlands’ and ‘A Discovery Of Witches’); and he was there when Lord Kenyon, who’s son Thomas was sexually abusing boys in care, was President of UCNW (see post ‘A Bit More Paleontology’). Wynn was there throughout all of it and oversaw the very questionable practices detailed in posts such as ‘He’s Not The Messiah, He’s A Very Naughty Boy’, ‘Not Seen Since The 80s – Carwyn’, ‘Sleeping With The Fishes’ and ‘Pets Win Prizes’.

Most saliently, Wynn was sitting on the Council in 1984, when Thatcher’s henchman Sir Peter Swinnerton-Dyer tried to close UCNW down. The reason that didn’t happen was that it was made clear to Swinnerton-Dyer that the College was packed to the rafters with people facilitating a key branch of the Westminster Paedophile Ring, the branch of which Sir Peter Morrison, Thatcher’s friend and adviser, was a member (see previous posts). Sir Peter’s sister Dame Mary Morrison was Woman-of-the-Bedchamber to Lilibet. Lilibet’s son Carlo was Chancellor of UCNW.

One can only wonder why Wynn was only rewarded with an MBE. Likewise, the well-camouflaged paedophiles’ friend Professor Eric Sunderland, the Principal of UCNW, 1984-95, didn’t get the K that he always wanted. I can only presume that the big wigs in High Society in London don’t have a great deal of respect for the Little People in north Wales who do the dirty work. It was Brian Flowers and his mates who bagged the peerages.

Personal details
Born Robert Maurice Lipson Winston
15 July 1940 (age 78)
Political party Labour

Lord Winston trained at the London Hospital Medical College and for many years worked at Hammersmith Hospital, which became part of Imperial College, when Lord Flowers brought all the paedophiles’ friends together. Winston is now Emeritus Professor of Fertility Studies at Imperial.

Lord Bob developed a towering reputation as an IVF specialist. Which was ironic because when Patrick Steptoe and Bob Edwards were carrying out the research which led to the birth of Louise Brown, the world’s first ‘test tube baby’, Lord Bob opposed them all the way and was one of the Top Doctors who tried to stop their work. Patrick Steptoe never forgave Lord Bob. Steptoe died before Bob Edwards and he were really accepted into respectable society, long before anyone even discussed giving out a Nobel prize for the work. Bob Edwards is an alumni of UCNW/Bangor University. UCNW wouldn’t admit to having had Bob Edwards as a student for years, but more recently, Bob Edwards’s name replaced Roger Whittaker’s name on the Bangor literature as a famous old student.

For some reason, Lord Bob decided to embrace IVF and indeed make it his own specialism, after having tried for so long to put Steptoe and Edwards out of action. Lord Bob embraced IVF just when the paedophiles’ friends really needed a hand in the 1980s, what with Mary Wynch, Alison Taylor and me all making a racket.

Lord Bob is a member of the Garrick – as was Ronnie Waterhouse and Waterhouse’s friends Sir Robin Day and the High Court judge from Denbighshire and President of Bangor University, Sir William Mars-Jones. Lord Bob is also a member of the Athenaeum, as was Jimmy Savile. See previous posts for further information about Robin Day, Mars-Jones and of course Lord Bob.

 

There were and are staff at Bangor who are excellent and do make the student experience valuable, but there are swathes of the institution that are very dysfunctional and have been for decades. Wynn Humphrey Davies must have either failed to rectify that or have been part of the problem himself. I and my friends always joked about the old gits who were known to exercise a vice-like grip on Bangor University – ‘the Welsh gerontocracy’ as Brown called them – and Wynn was one of them. If he’d presented a challenge to them they’d have got rid of him.

As for Wynn Chairing the University’s Finance Committee for 23 years, UCNW has been in a parlous financial state for many, many years. The Bangor solicitor Elwyn Jones was Bangor University’s Treasurer for many years. Elwyn Jones was a crook and acted for a woman who was linked to the paedophile gang who fleeced a man after he had been targeted by Dafydd et al, left him destitute and then colluded with the paedophile gang to have him branded a risk to children himself and prevent him having access to his own child. The boyfriend of this woman’s daughter was killed when he was hit by a lorry near Bethesda shortly before the Waterhouse Inquiry was opened. Elwyn Jones was assisted by Dafydd Orwig, a Gwynedd County Councillor and lecturer at Bangor Normal College; the GPs at Bethesda Surgery; the staff of the Hergest Unit; the Arfon Community Mental Health Team; Gwynedd Social Services and Jo Bott, a police officer who doubled up as a ‘child protection officer’.

When the victim of all this tried to raise his concerns about what had gone on, he was told by all of these people to ‘move on’. His child was living with a gang of paedophiles about a mile down the road and was regularly wheeled past him in the pushchair while Elwyn Jones’s client sneered at him. When he re-married, his new wife was told by Jo Bott to ‘leave [his ex-partner] alone’. She hadn’t had any contact with her husband’s ex-partner since the day that their relationship ended. Although she did pay a great many of her husband’s former partner’s bills, which had been run up by his ex-partner in his name…Nearly £1000 to be precise. Brown was a witness to all this as well, he was dispensing advice. Then Paul Bates tried to track him down again…

I used to see the tosser Elwyn Jones in Court, patronising his clients, failing to defend them effectively and telling the other solicitors that he couldn’t wait to get onto the golf course as soon as Court had finished. Slob Ingham of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team was a regular at Bangor Golf Course, as was Elfed Roberts, who later became the Chair of the North West Wales NHS Trust and repeatedly had me arrested for ludicrous ‘offences’. When Elwyn Jones was stitching up the Hergest Unit patient and giving his child to a gang of paedophiles, Elfed was still a Superintendent in the North Wales Police, not having yet been thrown out for corruption by Chief Constable Richard Brunstrom. Elfed used to be the Sgt at Llangefni Police Station. Dafydd lived just outside of Llangefni and was mates with them all in there. Elfed also sat on the Council of Bangor University – he was Chair of the Fair Practice Committee – and after the embarrassment that was the NW Wales NHS Trust was abolished by Edwina Hart, instead of having Elfed arrested on the basis of the mountains of evidence that I and others sent her, Edwina gave Elfed a place on the Board of the Welsh Ambulance Trust.

For the full story re the paedophile gang who robbed someone blind and stole his son, being ably assisted in this by the professional classes of Bangor, see post ‘It’s All About Protecting Children’.

Elwyn Jones’s father was Sir Elwyn Jones, a solicitor who doubled up as the Labour MP for Conway. David Jones, the Tory MP for Clwyd West whom Cameron appointed as Secretary of State for Wales just as Operation Pallial was launched and in the run up to the Macur Review, is a solicitor who used to work in Elwyn Jones’s practice. See post ‘The Right Honourable David Jones MP’.

Wynn Humphrey Davies was instrumental in the foundation of the fundraising arm of Bangor which was established in 1984. I can remember that, it was the year that I graduated. I and all the other new graduates were asked to donate and many of us did. Not very much, because many of us were planning to undertake postgraduate work so we were broke, but a lot of us gave what we could. And the gerontocracy ended up colluding with a paedophile gang against us. Who killed one of us and ruined the careers of a few more of us. Just before I fled north Wales, I received a phone call from the Bangor University alumni office asking me if I’d like to donate to their fund.

What can be said of people like this?

 

 

Wynn left Imperial and took up a Chair at Queen Mary, University of London in 1956. QMUL dates back to the foundation of London Hospital Medical College – Lord Bob Winston’s alma mater -in 1785. Queen Mary College was admitted to the University of London in 1915 and in 1989 merged with Westfield College to form Queen Mary and Westfield College. In 1995 Queen Mary and Westfield College merged with St Bartholomew’s Hospital Medical College and the London Hospital Medical College to form the School of Medicine and Dentistry.

Bart’s was ruled by Dafydd’s mate, south Wales-born Professor Linford Rees, he of the celebrity family which included his daughter, actress Angharad Rees and her husband Christopher Cazenove (see post ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’). Dafydd’s gang procured young people for celebrity sex work – as did Jimmy Savile. In a previous generation, Bart’s was ruled by the father of Lady Juliet Bingley, who was a surgeon there. Juliet worked as a social worker at Bart’s and married Admiral Sir Alec Bingley, who served in the Royal Navy with Lord Louis Mountbatten (see post ‘The Defence of The Realm’). Lady Juliet and her son William Bingley spend many happy years in senior positions at MIND colluding with Dafydd et al and William carried on the good work when he became Chief Exec of the Mental Health Act Commission and no doubt also in his later role as the Chair of a scandal-ridden NHS Trust in the north of England and as the Professor of Law and Ethics at Cumbria University.

William Bingley died in a hill walking accident in 2011, just as it was obvious that Operation Pallial and the Macur Review would be taking place. In his obituary, ‘The Guardian’ described William as someone ‘who fought for the rights of mentally ill people’. After Dafydd illegally imprisoned Mary Wynch, things got a bit embarrassing and thus the Mental Health Act was updated, with Added Protection From Mad Old Doctors. The new Mental Health Act 1983 was written by Dafydd’s mate Professor Robert Bluglass and the Code of Practice which accompanied it was written by William Bingley. After Dafydd had illegally imprisoned me in the winter of 1986/1987 – along with a ward full of other people who had also been illegally imprisoned – and I complained, my complaints were ignored. I refused to give up and eventually in 1989, my complaint was investigated – by Bluglass. Who failed to investigate any of my concerns relating to Tony Francis and Gwynedd Social Services and concluded that Dafydd was a caring man who had been harassed to distraction by me, although Bluglass admitted that Dafydd’s ‘clinical standards’ needed to be raised. See post ‘Enter Robert Bluglass CBE’.  William Bingley had told me in person that if I went back to north Wales I would be arrested.

Some three years later, Robert Bluglass was a member of the Fallon Inquiry into serious abuse at Lawrence Ward in Ashworth Hospital, which was run by Dafydd and Tony Francis’s mate Dr Chris Hunter. Hunter was the man who, just before the Fallon Inquiry, had held a case conference about me while I was at work in a London medical school, took evidence from a number of people who had never met me and declared me to be extremely dangerous and in need of banging up in a secure hospital. Hunter offered to provide a Court report about me. I was not facing any criminal charges at the time, but it wasn’t long before I was… See post ‘The Night Of The (Dr Chris) Hunter. I did not know that this case conference had ever taken place until my lawyers obtained my medical records many, many years later. I had never heard of Chris Hunter.

Bluglass’s role in the Fallon Inquiry was to investigate the murder of an Ashworth patient by the staff. To aid him in his investigation, Bluglass commissioned a senior nurse who worked with Dafydd and one of his own senior nurses from the Birmingham clinic of which he was Clinical Director, the Reaside Clinic. The conclusion of the Fallon Report was that the patients at Ashworth were absolute bastards who needed higher levels of security. See post ‘Security, Security’.

 

William Bingley was married to an Angel and they loved entertaining and having lots of important people to dinner. I hope that the guests were given tea and cake in the afternoon as well.

 

The main campus of QMUL is in Tower Hamlets. It has other campuses in Holborn, Smithfield and Whitechapel. Dafydd’s gang had a reciprocal agreement with Tower Hamlets – Dafydd and the gang were sent kids in care, who were then returned to the East End as sex workers. See post ‘Tower Hamlets, Paul Boateng and Tessa Jowell’. When the sex workers started dying after developing AIDS in the 1980s, Ken Clarke and other public spirited politicians arranged for some crumbs from the table to look after them in secrecy and ensure that no-one ever found out how those young men contracted HIV (see post ‘Apocalypse Now’). More public spirited people then built Canary Wharf on the remains of that part of humanity and now no-one ever speaks of what went on in the Tower Hamlets area before Docklands sprang up (see post ‘The Bodies Beneath Canary Wharf’).

  • Strange but true for March

 

Wynn Humprhey Davies’s obituary in ‘The Times’ told us that he was born in Tufnell Park, London, to a Welsh speaking family. Wynn’s father was Richard Humphrey Davies, who came from Corris, a quarrying village in what is now Gwynedd. Richard Humphrey Davies was a prominent Liberal who was Private Secretary to William Gladstone, the Liberal PM. Gladstone was born on Merseyside, but had strong links to north Wales and died at Hawarden Castle, Flintshire. Gladstone bequeathed £40,000 (equivalent to approximately £4.24 million today) and much of his 32,000 volume library to found St Deiniol’s Library in Hawarden. Richard Humphrey Davies also worked with H.H. Asquith, who was Liberal PM, 1908-16 and also with David Lloyd George in the Treasury and the Liberal Central Association. Lloyd George was Liberal PM, 1916-22. Not only was Lloyd George still alive when Professor Wynn Humphrey Davies was working at Imperial College, but Lloyd George’s descendants and their friends are very well represented among those who have provided an umbrella for Dafydd and the gang (see previous posts.

Lloyd George’s family were friends with Jeremy Thorpe and his family (see post ‘My How Things Haven’t Changed’) and with Trumpers, who as junior Health Minister appointed Jimmy Savile to the Broadmoor management task force. See posts ‘Socio-Political Context Of The North Wales Mental Health Services in the 1980s’, ‘A Pretty Classy Piece Of Operation’ and ’95 Glorious Years’.

Ronnie Waterhouse came from a high profile Liberal family in Flintshire. Ronnie’s family were friends with the Lloyd Georges – that was why Ronnie found Jeremy Thorpe socially acceptable. Ronnie’s father was a Liberal MP and Ronnie and many members of his immediate family were active in the Liberal Party, some of them – including Ronnie at one point – having ambitions to enter Parliament.

In 1984, the year that Wynn founded the UCNW charitable fund, Wynn was appointed a Fellow of Queen Mary, University of London. Queen Mary has made a great number of people Fellows, but the names of a few of them really do jump out at me in terms of those who have provided a particularly good service re concealing the crimes of Dafydd and his associates. The list of Fellows contains many names which have previously featured on this blog including:

Sir Adolf aka William Asscher, Dean of St George’s Hospital Medical School, 1988-96, when so much criminal activity was taking place there; Lord Peter Brooke, who served as Chairman of the Tory Party and as Secretary of State for N Ireland during Peak Peadophilia; Lord Thomas Bingham, a mate of Ronnie Waterhouse’s who became Master of the Rolls, Lord Chief Justice and Senior Law Lord.

Asscher was made a Fellow of QMUL in 1998, by which time the research fraud perpetrated at St George’s by Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain and Malcolm Pearce had caused a major scandal. By 1998 the Waterhouse Inquiry had taken evidence in public and denounced the former kids in care as liars who were only after money. In 1998, Dr Tony Francis and the gang had recently failed to have me incarcerated in a secure hospital after perjuring themselves.

QMUL made Peter Brooke a Fellow in 1996, the year that William Hague announced that the Waterhouse Inquiry would be held, although Ronnie knew that he would be holding that Inquiry at least a year before Hague announced it. In 1996, Dafydd, Tony Francis and the gang were carefully planning and co-ordinating yet another attempt to have me banged up in a secure hospital, which subsequently fell apart.

Thomas Bingham was appointed a Fellow in 1992, the year that he was appointed as Master of the Rolls. In 1992 the North Wales Police were in the middle of their investigation into the possible existence of a paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire. David Owen, then the Chief Constable of North Wales, refused to co-operate with the investigation. Although hundreds of complaints about kids in care being assaulted were made and a file was sent to the CPS, the DPP did not bring any charges. In 1993 the North Wales Police closed the investigation and stated that they had found no evidence of a paedophile ring.

When these folk became Fellows of QMUL, former kids in care from north Wales were regularly turning up dead. Thomas Bingham became a Fellow in the year in which five witnesses to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal were killed by a firebomb (see post ‘The Silence Of The Welsh Lambs’).

Sir Roger Bannister, the neurologist who was the first man to run the four minute mile, became a Fellow in 2010, when the demands for a re-investigation into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal could not be ignored any longer. Roger Bannister will have known the neurologist Lord John Walton; Walton was just seven years younger than Bannister. Walton ran Newcastle-upon-Tyne, where the trafficking gang which supplied Dafydd with both staff and children operated and Walton provided an armour plated shield for Dafydd et al for decades, particularly when Walton was President of the GMC, BMA and the Royal Society of Medicine.

Roger Bannister was Warden of Pembroke College, Oxford 1985-93. At the beginning of Bannister’s term as Warden, there were allegations that Oxford still operated a reserved place scheme for certain schools. Oxford denied this. In the year of the robust denials, Brown’s cousin was offered a reserved place at Pembroke College (see post ‘Conference At Cold Comfort Farm’). This may be a coincidence, but Katy’s reserved place was provided by her school, Tiffin Girls’, in Kingston-upon-Thames. Sir Hugh Bentall pretty much ran Kingston-upon-Thames and Katy’s mother worked in Bentall’s, the upmarket department store owned by Sir Hugh. Katy was offered the reserved place after Brown and me refused to keep quiet about Gwynne the lobotomist and began receiving threats from the Top Docs. Katy’s place was for a theology degree – she had applied to study law.

Lord John Walton was Warden of Green College, Oxford at pretty much the same time as Roger Bannister was Warden of Pembroke College, Oxford.

Sir Martin Harris, who became VC of Manchester University and Chancellor of Salford University, was a Governor of Queen Mary, University of London, 1979-89 and Chair of Council, 1989-95. Sir Martin became a Fellow in 1997, another gift given during the Waterhouse Inquiry and amidst those plans to fit me up. Sir Martin came from a village near Wrexham and his early career was spent at that bastion of paedophiles’ friends, Leicester University.

Lord Robert Winston, Professor of Fertility Studies, Imperial College, 1987-05. Winston became a Fellow of QMUL in 1996 – the year that Hague announced the Waterhouse Inquiry. Winston personally knew some of those whom I worked for when I was at Hammersmith and St George’s, including Chamberlain and Pearce. Winston bagged his peerage in 1995, the year in which Ronnie Waterhouse altered his retirement plans and conducted a tour wining and dining with the grandest paedophiles’ friends in Wales before he Chaired the Inquiry which he had no idea was going to be announced by Hague in 1996.

Lord Randolph Quirke, VC of University of London, 1981-85, (see previous posts) became a Fellow of QMUL in 1986. Which was the year that I was unlawfully detained by Dafydd’s gang – twice – and began my MSc at Hammersmith. Quirke not only kept the lid on the wrongdoing at London University, but he was also a friend and colleague of Professor David Crystal, who is an Honorary Professor at Bangor University, grew up in Holyhead, lives in Holyhead and is involved with ‘community life’ in the Bangor/Holyhead area (see previous posts). Randolph will have known Lord Brian Flowers and Professor Wynn Humphrey Davies.

Baroness Lynda Chalker has been the most wonderful paedophiles’ friend on a generic basis for many years (see post ‘Those Who Are Ready To Serve’) and she became a Fellow of Queen Mary in 1998.

Jack Profumo, who of course starred in the Profumo Affair with the call girls, Russian spies, Stephen Ward – the osteopath who later died in worrying circumstances – and it was rumoured members of the Royal Family who’s names were kept out of it all, became a Fellow in 2000. The year that the Waterhouse Report was published. Jack Profumo was a good mate of Trumpers, who also attended the knees-ups at Cliveden and admitted being on the scene when swearing cockney birds had to be kept out of the way of Lilibet. See post ‘In Memoriam – Bronwen, Lady Astor’.

Baroness Barbara Brooke, the mother of Lord Peter Brooke and a Tory politician herself, was a loyal paedophiles’ friend who held senior positions in the NHS in London for many years and knew what was right for the proles. Baroness Brooke became a Fellow of QMUL many years ago, before the Waterhouse-related rush.

Another Fellow of Queen Mary is Baroness Murphy of Aldgate, Prof of Old Age Psychiatry at Queen Mary University of London, 1995-06; Chairman of the Council at St George’s Hospital Medical School, 2009-12. Elaine Murphy was a Health Service General Manager, 1984-90 which included the post of District General Manager for Lewisham and North Southwark Health Authority. That was on the territory of the trafficking gang facilitated by Dafydd’s mates at the Maudsley. Murphy was the first Professor of Psychiatry of Old Age in the UK, at Guy’s. Where Dafydd’s mate the sex therapist Professor Jim Watson found himself. Along with Ed Miliband’s Uncle Harry. Murphy took on non-executive roles after retirement and was Chair of North East London Strategic Health Authority until 30 June 2006. She was a Visiting Professor at Queen Mary University of London, Vice-President of the Alzheimer’s Society and and was a non-executive member of Monitor (Independent Monitor of NHS Hospitals).

Elaine was appointed a Fellow of Queen Mary in 2008. Well Elaine, not only have you never explained why you kept quiet about that trafficking gang in south London with links to Dafydd, but you’ve never explained why EMI care is still so bad in the UK, including in your next of the woods, more than 20 years after you bagged your Chair in the speciality. Neither has Monitor ever done its job properly. Elaine netted a peerage in 2004, the year that Huw Daniel expected to imprison me…

In 1996, the year that the Waterhouse Inquiry was announced, Queen Mary made Roger Henderson QC, a Fellow. Henderson became a Recorder of the Crown Court in 1983 and a Deputy High Court judge in 1987. He was a Governor, London Hospital Medical College, 1989-96; a Member of Council of Queen Mary, 1993-2005 and Chairman of the Council, 1993-96. So Roger probably had a say in making so many paedophiles’ friends Fellows. Then he became a Fellow himself. Furthermore, not only was Roger one of those Governing the London Hospital Medical College when that institution was colluding with the trafficking gang on it’s doorstep, but Henderson was also a Governor at the time of the civil war at the London Hospital which took place over Wendy Savage (see post ‘The BMA And It’s Ethics’). Wendy Savage was a friend of Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain and knew a great deal about young, dispossessed women becoming pregnant again and again when they didn’t want to be.

Roger Henderson was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Chambers Bar Awards 2012, which were held at the Hilton Hotel, Park Lane.

In 2012 Operation Pallial was re-investigating the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal and the Macur Review was underway, which covered the whole scandal up all over again. Tony Francis killed himself in 2012. After Tony Francis killed himself, his wife Sadie told third parties that it was my fault.

The last time that I saw Tony Francis had been some five years earlier when Sadie and Tony were sitting in the cafe of a garden centre in Bangor, where I had gone for a cup of coffee with Ella Fisk. Ella asked me about my publication plans re the north Wales mental health services and I told her that Brown and I were in the process of preparing a manuscript for a volume. Tony stared straight ahead and ignored me. Sadie came up and told me that she was so glad to have heard that my career was going so well and she looked forward to reading our book, even if she was in it.

Tony Francis used to tell his patients that he knew the Windbag when they were both at university in Cardiff. Tony Francis was also a big fan of Dafydd Wigley.

Yma O Hyd!

Oh, my poor old calon breaks when I sing of the heroes of Wales such as Macsen as well as our legends…But my spirit soars when I sing that tribute song to Dr Dafydd Alun Jones that I wrote. Then I entertain everyone with the humorous number about MI5 bugging the Ciosg Talysarn…

Dafydd Iwan

 

Dafydd Iwan also wrote a song about Carlo, taking the piss out of Carlo’s inherited privilege and his dependence upon the position of his father. Read about the career of Dafydd’s Iwan’s son Llion in post ‘A Demand From Gwynedd County Council’. ‘Carlo’ berates Carlo for playing polo ‘with daddy’. When Dafydd Iwan recorded Ciosg Talysarn, Llion was still quite young and the video features Llion as a little boy running around wearing a policeman’s helmet, the theme of the video being the fuckwittery of the police and the security services. Well they weren’t trying very hard to catch you were they Dafydd Iwan, they were far too busy arresting us.

 

I hope that Sadie is enjoying this blog, I’ve been able to say far more on here than any publisher would ever have allowed me to.

 

In 1991, Queen Mary made Professor Lord Peston a Fellow. That was the year in which I and three other witnesses to the crimes of Dafydd et al had our careers ruined and in which Tony and Sadie Francis made two attempts at having me imprisoned after perjuring themselves. Their second attempt took place at the Courts of Royal Justice in The Strand. 1991 was the year in which the North Wales Police investigation into a possible paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire opened. Lord Peston was Professor of Economics and the founder of the Department of Economics at Queen Mary University of London (1965-88). He was Robert Peston’s dad.

Other lucky Fellows of Queen Mary, University of London, include: Grocer Heath; Fattersley; Ronnie Waterhouse’s mate Lord Patrick Jenkin; and Dr Gwyn Owain Jones, Director, National Museum of Wales, 1968-77, Professor of Physics, University of London and Head, Department of Physics, Queen Mary University of London, 1953-68. Paedophiles’ friends the lot of them.

 

I’m beginning to understand why he who conducts so many toadying interviews with clapped out politicians of yesteryear who never became PM despite doing as many favours for Dafydd as humanly possible, Professor Peter Hennessey, was given a home at Queen Mary, University of London.

Professor Duncan Tanner, the late Professor of History at Bangor University, passed through the hands of Queen Mary. Duncan knew about Dafydd and the gang and Duncan knew the identities of all the politicians who sheltered Dafydd. Duncan died, suddenly and during a routine minor procedure, in the ‘care’ of Ysbyty Gwynedd in 2010. Just when the paedophiles’ friends were getting really, really desperate and were causing ructions at Bangor University. Duncan was the Director of Research when he died and was working with my colleagues and I. He personally knew Frances Jones, who was one of those who was involved in preparing the ‘evidence’ that was used in an attempt by the paedophiles’ friends to frame and imprison me back in the early 1990s, but whether Duncan knew that I have no idea.

At Duncan’s memorial service, Frances Jones sat behind me with her mates and they were bemoaning the state of Bangor University and maintaining that it was all the result of the ‘research strategy of the Vice Chancellor’. No Frances, the chaos was the result of the sabotage strategy of the paedophiles’ friends.

 

 

Now to someone else Who Knew at the Control Centre that was St George’s. Previous posts have discussed the dreadful Dr Cathy Wilson, society airhead and friend of Prof Geoffrey Chamberlain, who along with her colleagues was concealing a mountain of crap. Cathy was good mates with an endocrinologist at St George’s, Saffron Whitehead and Cathy and Saffron would often meet up during the long hard working day for a coffee or a lunch at a restaurant. According to Saffron’s Linked In profile, she now has a Chair at St George’s. She was just Dr Saffron when I knew her, so she’s obviously behaved herself. Saffron’s Linked In provides the following information:

‘Professor at St George’s Hospital Medical School; BSc Physiology, UCL, 1967-70; PhD, McMaster University, Hamilton, Canada.’

In about 1994, Tony Francis mismanaged the care of one ‘schizophrenic’ young woman at the Hergest so badly that it was fairly clear that he made her condition much worse. One really bizarre thing that he told her was that she suffered from a very extreme form of PMS and he sent her down to UCL to see an ‘expert’ in this, an elderly lady whom I seem to remember was a Professor Ann someone, who sounded quite mad. The elderly lady told Francis’s patient that she had a ‘little bit of schizophrenia’, but very, very severe PMS. The old lady didn’t recommend hormonal treatment but instead maintained that this young woman’s PMS could be managed by a special diet which involved the young woman eating a tin of Ambrosia creamed rice every two hours, as well as her usual grub. The young woman took a supply of Ambrosia everywhere that she went to keep her blood levels of Ambrosia up. She put on about four stones in weight and the Hergest Unit then told her that she needed cookery lessons re preparing healthy meals. So she’d go in the kitchen with an occupational therapy assistant and much time and trouble would be spent calculating calories and nutritional value and weighing out the precise amounts of healthy ingredients and a nice healthy meal would be prepared and consumed. But because the instructions of the mad old bat at UCL also had to be followed, a tin of Ambrosia had to be consumed as well.

This young woman had been sent back home to north Wales by her GP and into the hands of Francis after she had been working with Marco Pierre White in London and claimed to have had some very distressing experiences while in his employment. She was sectioned by the same social worker who unlawfully detained me in 1986, Jackie Brandt and her parents maintained that the law had been broken and that their daughter had been treated in a degrading, insensitive way. They also alleged that after they complained, the mental health services told ‘lie after lie after lie’. Thus a 1980s yuppie was transformed into a paranoid schizophrenic. Who then became homeless after the same social worker, some years later, ordered the police to break the door down to gain entry to her house when she refused to answer the door to the social worker, whom she hated. Her landlord evicted her because of this.

It became clear to the staff just how mad this young woman was when she alleged that Tony Francis arrived at her room late one night when she had been sectioned and exposed himself to her. She gave me full details of this incident, which to my regret I too always put down to her distress. When my lawyers finally got hold of my records – more than 20 years after I first requested them – I read the quite mad things that Tony Francis had written about me, as well as the comments by those at St George’s who were concealing Dafydd et al’s crimes that Dafydd was sexually exploiting patients and that they thought that Tony Francis was as well.

My lawyers had to take Keith Thompson, the Chief Exec of the North West Wales NHS Trust, to the High Court – where he was threatened with imprisonment for contempt – before those records were handed over.

Hundreds of people read those records after those comments were written by St George’s staff. Except of course my lawyers and I.

‘There is no evidence that Dr Dafydd Alun Jones ever behaved in any way  unprofessionally.’

Saffron tells us on her Linked In that:

‘For over thirty five years I have been teaching medical students, biomedical students and other health care professionals. I have run an active research team which has been supported by the MRC, Wellcome Trust, Nuffield Foundation and other funding bodies resulting in an extensive bibliography. I have written three endocrinology text books and have a large portfolio of free lance journalism. I have been editor of Physiology News and The Endocrinologist and am currently involved in public engagements activities for the British Endocrine Society. I have featured several times on Woman’s Hour (BBC Radio 4) and recently appeared in a television documentary on BBC 4, the Fantastical World of Your Hormones. Interests and hobbies include tennis, golf, photography and travel.’

Jenni Murray and Jane Garvey: Saffron spent her career in an institution which for years facilitated a paedophile ring on its doorstep and concealed the ring in north Wales with which the south London ring was linked. Saffron was a good friend of one of the people who was instrumental in facilitating/ concealing the abuse.

Linked In states that Saffron is a School Governor at Oak Lodge School and in 2013 was a Volunteer for the Shaw Trust, ‘helping the unemployed get back to work’…

 

When I was supposed to be doing a PhD at St George’s under the supervision of Cathy Wilson and Malcolm Pearce, not only would Cathy just not mentor me or help me in any way, but it became obvious that she had no experience at all in one of the key experimental techniques that I was supposed to be using ie. organ baths. After realising that I was on my own with this PhD and had a mad, unpleasant supervisor into the bargain, I tracked down someone in the University of Glasgow who had much experience in organ baths – using the umbilical artery as well, which was what I was trying to do –  and she invited me up to meet her and spend a week learning. She was really nice and very helpful, but one thing I remember her telling me was that she couldn’t bear the social snobbery which prevailed in Glasgow Medical School. She had recently got married to a man who had set up his own small business on the back of his redundancy package – he had previously been a miner. One of her Top Doc colleagues had said to her when she got engaged ‘surely you can do better for yourself than an ex-miner’. Which was the sort of thing that Cathy Wilson would have said.

Glasgow Medical School is charged with providing ‘expertise’ to some of the most disadvantaged people in Europe. After years of the Top Docs developing their research interests in health inequalities, the life expectancy for the most disadvantaged Glaswegians is still approx 20 years less than the professional classes who work in Glasgow, but who choose to live somewhere nicer. Such as on the banks of Loch Lomond, like Dr Gwen Jones-Edwards, who left the Hergest Unit in a hurry as the Waterhouse Inquiry approached and who some five years ago had inexplicably became the Clinical Director of Southern General Hospital, the leading centre for neurology/neurosurgery in Europe. Gwen is not even a neurologist, she is merely a former colleague of a branch of the Westminster Paedophile Ring. While Gwen was Clinical Director, Southern General underwent a massive expansion programme, billions was invested and virtually all other medical specialities for Western Scotland were transferred to Southern General as well. See previous posts for more gen on Gwen.

Sir Kenneth Calman, surgeon and oncologist, is a graduate of Glasgow University and spent much of his career there. Calman was Chief Medical Officer of Scotland, 1989-91 and for England and Wales, 1991-97, throughout the police investigations into child abuse in north Wales and the beginning of the Waterhouse Inquiry, when so many witnesses to the crimes of Dafydd et al were found dead and when the gang were busy fitting me and others up. Sir Kenneth was Warden and VC of Durham University, 1998-2006 and was then appointed Chancellor of Glasgow University, a post he still holds. Durham University, like Newcastle University, was choc full of staff who concealed the trafficking gang in the north east which had close connections to Dafydd’s. Professor Eric Sunderland had spent most of his career at Durham before he was appointed Principal of Bangor University in 1984. Eric was an anthropologist. Mo Mowlam studied anthropology and sociology at Durham and later worked at Newcastle University. No wonder Blair appointed Mo N Ireland Secretary, what with all those links between Kincora’ Boys Home and the trafficking gangs in mainland Britain, particularly in north Wales.

Kenneth Calman became VC of Durham University while Mo was N Ireland Secretary. A man called Tony Blair held the nearby constituency of Sedgefield. The region was well-supplied with MPs who were loyal mates of Blair, such as Hilary Armstrong, who’s dad Ernest had used his influence with Tony Crosland back in the 1960s to conceal the gang which later sent staff to join Dafydd et al in north Wales.

The MP for the City of Durham, 1987-2005, was Gerry Steinberg. Steinberg grew up and went to school in Durham. He gained a Teachers Certificate at Sheffield College of Education (now Sheffield Hallam University) and later a DipEd of Backward Children (now called SEN) at Newcastle Poly. Steinberg started teaching at Hexham Camp School in 1966, then moved to Elemore Hall in County Durham in 1969. From 1975-87 he was at Whitworth House Special School in Spennymoor where he became Head Teacher. He joined the Labour Party in 1969 and became election agent for Durham MP Dr Mark Hughes in 1973. In May 1975 Steinberg was elected to Durham City Council. He was secretary of the Labour Group on the city council from 1981 to 1987 and Co-Leader of the Council from 1983-87. Gerry Steinberg was married to another teacher, Margaret.

The children targeted by the gang in the north east were frequently SEN children.

Brown’s mum and dad came from County Durham. Brown’s mum went to Durham University and his dad went to what is now Newcastle University. Brown’s mum grew up in Spennymore. I have previously blogged about Col Brown’s death which Brown and I realised was suspicious, but although Brown’s mum was older than his dad when she died, I have now been told that her death is worth asking questions about as well. Before she died, Brown’s mum had an emergency buzzer fitted in her house which raised an NHS alert if she needed help. She kept telling Brown that the buzzer didn’t work, but Brown thought that she was lonely and perhaps was telling him that to get him down to Somerset to look at the buzzer. She was found dead in her bed shortly after. No reason, she just died.

I have now been told that Mrs Brown’s buzzer did work, but that it was not being answered… Mrs Brown died just after I finished my PhD, when Tony Francis et al were getting so vexed about the prospect of Brown and I publishing the full story regarding my experiences with the mental health services.

Sir Kenneth Calman is an SNP supporter and had served as an adviser to the Scottish Gov’t. He Chaired the Calman Commission on devolution. See previous posts for further information on Kenneth.

Sir Ken is the father of Radio 4 favourite, Funnywoman Susan Calman, who’s act is centred around jokes about her being a short plump Glaswegian lesbian who lives with her cats and has self-esteem problems. Before Susan Calman went into comedy she worked as an international lawyer. When Susan appears on the ‘News Quiz’ and such, she usually gets in a few comments to emphasise that unlike many other Radio 4 comedians, she is not posh and ex-Footlights.

Sir Ken knew about the crimes of this man, who visited Bryn Estyn, many years before they were admitted publicly:

Another daughter of a Top Doc rose to stardom at about the same time as Susan Calman, but in the field of rock music rather than comedy – Cerys Matthews. Cerys’s dad was a Top Doc in the Cardiff area and when he was older he relocated to west Wales. Both areas hosted paedophile/trafficking rings linked with Dafydd’s gang in north Wales. The gang in west Wales thrived when Ioan Bowen Rees was County Secretary of Dyfed. Ioan Bowen Rees was later appointed Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council and while he was in post, the gang which was already there expanded. It was Ioan who appointed Dafydd’s mistress Lucille Hughes as Director of Gwynedd Social Services (see post ‘I Know Nuzzing…’). Ioan Bowen Rees was the dad of Gruff Rhys, who found international stardom with his band Super Furry Animals, during those years in the run up to the Waterhouse Report, when Sir Ken was CMO. Cerys became famous then as well. Se post ‘The International Language Of Screaming’ for information on all those stars who made up the Cool Cymru phenomenon, which reached it’s zenith when the Waterhouse Report was published. Blair was PM and he used ‘Cool Britannia’, of which Cool Cymru was a part, to promote Britain. The Minister with responsibility for this was Derek Fatchett, who died suddenly and unexpectedly of a massive heart attack at a relatively young age, in 1999. Just before the Waterhouse Report was published. Derek Fatchett had been the MP for Leeds Central before Hilary Benn and knew a great deal about Jimmy Savile, the paedophile ring in the region with links to Dafydd and the gang, police corruption etc. Fatchett began his Journey as a ‘bearded Marxist’ but made friends with the Windbag who knew Tony Francis from university and thus Fatchett came over all modernising (see post ‘Badlands’).

 

Before Amy Winehouse died, because her lifestyle was so excessive, her mates were concerned that she would peg out and they kept telling her not to join the 27 Club, which I understand is a reference to the rockers who died at the age of 27. Amy did of course join the 27 Club. Presumably middle aged politicians have the ‘New Labour Fatal Heart Attack Club’, which has as members the following:

John Smith
Winehouse looking to the side

 

Derek Fatchett
Winehouse looking to the side

 

Robin Cook
Winehouse looking to the side

 

Amy Winehouse recorded songs including ‘In my Bed’, ‘You Sent Me Flying’, Help Yourself’ and ‘You Know I’m No Good’. A DVD was entitled ‘I Told You I Was Trouble’ and she sang cover versions of ‘It’s My Party’, ‘The Wanted’ and ‘Ghost Town’.

 

Cerys Matthews began training as a psychiatric nurse, but the little songster left and took up busking instead. Like Jo Brand, who gives the Posh Boys A Bollocking on ‘Have I Got News For You’, who worked as a psych nurse (and is married to one), Cerys doesn’t talk that much about her time as an Angel. Jo worked as an Angel in Cefn Coed, a rather troubled psych hospital at Swansea, which has just been the centre of some rather bad publicity after an Angel killed herself because, it is alleged, of ferocious workplace bullying at the hands of her colleagues.

Swansea University and the NHS in that area have strong links with Bangor University and the north Wales NHS and there is traffic in staff between the two institutions. Edwina Hart, the former Welsh Gov’t Heath Minister, was perceived to be batting for Swansea by Top Docs in north Wales who were so angry about this that they were telling their patients to write to the Welsh Gov’t and complain. Which I thought was a little odd, because I gave Edwina Hart enough evidence to have those bastards arrested but she refused to act on it. But then if it wasn’t for Carlo, Dafydd Iwan and his associates would have been removed from their well-remunerated positions and some of them would have gone to prison.

MP Betty Williams tells her life story - Daily Post

 

 

Despite the young woman at Glasgow University being so helpful regarding the organ baths, after one visit to Glasgow, Cathy Wilson produced one of her friends to mentor me. Who didn’t scream abuse at the research staff and throw things around the lab like Cathy did, but she was married to Ian Smedley, the Head Technician of the Pharmacology Dept at St George’s and she was well-networked into the London paedophiles’ friends. The equipment that I was using to conduct my experiments was sited in the Pharmacology Dept. The temperature regulation system broke down and despite me reporting it several times, it was never repaired. So I stopped the experiments and Cathy hurled abuse at me for being lazy and told me to start work again. Still the temperature regulation mechanism wasn’t fixed, although old Smedley would drop by and put his hand on my knee regularly – he did this to the female medical students as well, it was why they didn’t like him. So I was forced to work with broken equipment. After two days of this, Patrick Vallance, one of the physicians and pharmacologists who was also involved in my project, found out that I was working with broken equipment, gave me a bollocking and never spoke to me again. A medical student with whom I was friends heard Patrick Vallance telling other pharmacologists not to work with me.

After making his name as a stern critic of the pharmaceutical industry and it’s scams, some years ago Professor Patrick Vallance sent shock waves through medicine when he left academia to take up a senior position with Big Pharma. Patrick was President, R&D, of GSK, 2012-18. Since March 2018, Patrick has been the Chief Scientific Adviser to the UK Gov’t.

As someone who was a student at St George’s and who then spent years working there, Patrick knew about the crime which was being concealed at that institution and he will have known about the research fraud there.

When I knew him, Patrick was big mates with the pharmacologist Salvador Moncada, now Sir Salvador. Patrick told me that Salvador was ‘brilliant’ and ‘Spanish’, which was what the whole of London and medicine was told about Moncada. Salvador Moncada is actually a former guerilla leader who was kicked out of El Salvador when he was much younger for terrorist activities – some of Savador’s targets were innocent civilians caught up in the civil war – who, for reasons which I have not yet uncovered, was invited to London by a Top Doctor mate of his and was sponsored by the Royal College of Surgeons to begin a new life as a world-leading pharmacologist. Salvador was writing papers within weeks, although he couldn’t speak English. Brown has observed that somebody else has obviously been writing Moncada’s papers for years, but who it is we do not know. Moncada was expected to win a Nobel prize a few years ago but missed out. His friends told the media that Salvador didn’t make a fuss because he’s a true gent. If he had have made a fuss, it is highly likely that someone in El Salvador might have noticed who the lucky prize winner was, although I presume that Moncada was given a new ID when he arrived in Britain all those years ago…

For the lowdown on Moncada and Patrick Vallance, see post ‘The Trabant That Wants To Be A Ferrari…’

Before I went up to Glasgow to stay with the physiologist/pharmacologist who had Married Beneath Her, I had met a few more Scottish medical researchers. In 1987, I applied for a job with a team of neurologists at Edinburgh University. I was invited for an interview and although the interview took place in the vet school at Edinburgh University, it was actually some Top Doctors who were leading the research. The work was taking place in the vet school because the experimental work was being conducted on cats. They even had a special operating theatre for the cats who were used for the work. The research wasn’t actually directly linked to the work that Professor Colin Blakemore had been involved with which had resulted in him receiving death threats and in attempts to blow him up (see previous posts), but Blakemore will have definitely known the cats people at Edinburgh. While I was with them, I concluded that the work was interesting scientifically, but as many were saying about Blakemore’s work at the time, it couldn’t be justified and neither could the sacrifice of the cats. However I got on well with the interviewing panel and they indicated that I was going to be offered the job – so I went home worrying about how I was going to say no without causing offence.

I needn’t have worried. I didn’t hear from them within days as promised, so after a few weeks, I contacted them. They were very apologetic and told me that I hadn’t got the job and that they’d written to me the day after my interview.

Many weeks later, I received the rejection letter, which was dated the day after the interview, looked as though it had done a few rounds in a boxing match and furthermore had been obviously opened and resealed.

 

  • Weird But True!

 

Many years later, when my lawyers extracted the first batch of my medical records, there were notes written by Alun Davies and Laurie Wood, the then manager of the North Wales Hospital Denbigh, describing the unlawful methods that they were using to track my home addresses throughout the late 1980s and 90s. These methods included asking one of their friends at St George’s to access confidential data to find out my home address as well as asking people to intercept my mail.

My mail was intercepted years later when I worked at Bangor University. My lawyer was writing to me at the University, after the mail left by the postie in the box in my garden disappeared on two occasions. When I picked up my post from my University pigeon hole, every letter from my lawyer had already been opened. So I asked my lawyer to write to me at a friend’s address. Every letter was opened and resealed by the time that it arrived at my friend’s address. One day I caught the postie as he was arriving – a letter from my lawyer had already been opened and resealed by the time that he handed it to me.

 

Earlier posts have discussed the wide variety of people who befriended me, Brown and other witnesses to Dafydd and the gang’s wrongdoing whom I have now been told were members of the security services, who had placed us under surveillance. Some of those people simply hassled us from day one, but others posed as our friends and then caused havoc and bled us dry.

One such person was Hilda King, with whom I shared a flat in Sellincourt Road, Tooting when I worked at St George’s. Hilda became my friend and months later turned on me, got nasty for no apparent reason and made me homeless. Before she did that however, Hilda was tremendously entertaining. Hilda was an Angel at Friern Barnet, the asylum in north London which by then was gradually closing down. She told me about the abuse of patients which she had witnessed, how she reported it to her nursing tutors and how she was withdrawn from the placement but no action was taken against the abusers. Hilda told me about the en masse shagging between the Top Docs and the Angels and fessed up that she had been involved with a man called Dr Pilgrim.

Hilda came from Liverpool and told me that she knew a nursing tutor up there who ‘knows Denbigh hospital and said it is terrible’. Hilda was one of those who enjoyed ringing Denbigh, presenting them with ludicrous situations and listening to them flounder.

Then there was the man who lived in the house on one side of us whom we would hear beating his girlfriend up and the family on the other side which featured a completely toxic woman who assaulted her kids and her husband almost daily. All of this on the patch of one of London’s finest teaching hospitals, where the local GPs held academic posts at St George’s and trained GPs. The local social services and NHS were facilitating a trafficking gang and everyone working in health and care knew it. Down the road at Streatham was Ambleside Avenue, the brothel owned by Cynthia Payne, which achieved notoriety when it was raided because the clients within included a peer, a bishop, lawyers and police officers. Top Docs from St George’s were also found in the brothel during the raids but that was never mentioned in the media. See post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part III’.

The Principal of St George’s, Sir William Asscher, had spent his previous career in Cardiff, among those who concealed the child molesting of the Speaker of the House, Thatcher’s friend George Thomas aka Lord Tonypandy. Asscher arrived at St George’s from Cardiff two years after the Prof of Paediatrics at St George’s, Oliver Brooke, was jailed in 1986 for the possession of child porn. In 1987 Brooke was released early on appeal by Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane in May 1987. Brooke was a key player in a pan-European paedophile gang.

Cynthia’s brothel was used as a networking opportunity between professional people, some of whom were not only interested in sex with adults.

Hilda told me much about her family in the north east of England. She maintained that they were all rather crazy and hadn’t been able to look after her and her sister very well. Hilda’s sister came to stay with us and was as entertaining as Hilda. I was told many stories about Avril, a cider drinker who was having an affair with Hilda’s dad. Avril had a daughter called Tracy, who laced Avril’s cider with corn remover in an attempt to poison Avril. Avril tasted the cider and said ‘ee this cider tastes like corn remover’ but she still drank it. Brown and me knew people who did this sort of thing when we were teenagers in Somerset, so I thought that the Avril stories were hilarious. Then there was the man whom Hilda’s mum was having an affair with, Mr Womack, who lived with his mother, so they were known to Hilda and her sister as ‘Womack and Womack’.

 

  • cover326x326.jpeg

 

Mr Womack was, according to Hilda and her sister, a molester and dishonest. Mr Womack worked as a postman…

If Hilda was working undercover, I have no way of knowing how much of what she told me was true or even if her sister really was her sister. However, they had obviously been designed to be suitable people to befriend me and who took the piss out of the sort of things and people that I did.

I shared a house with Hilda in 1989. So MI5 knew exactly what was going on at St George’s, at Friern Barnet and what the Top Docs and social services were ignoring/colluding with. MI5 also knew that Dafydd’s gang were trying to kill me and Brown.

It won’t have escaped MI5’s notice that all these years later, I am in hiding, having fled Wales, after it simply became too dangerous for me to stay there any longer. Dafydd is still on the medical register and is Chairing CAIS, the biggest substance abuse charity in Wales.

This can never, ever be excused or justified.

 

Yesterday, Mark Drakeford, who hopes to become Wales’s FM when Carwyn stands down in December, announced that when he becomes FM, the Welsh Gov’t will give ‘baby boxes’ to all new parents in Wales. Mark Drakeford is a former social worker who worked in Dyfed when Dyfed Social Services facilitated a paedophile ring. Drakeford also worked as a youth worker in Cardiff, when everyone was keeping schtum about George Thomas and others. Drakeford was Rhodri Morgan’s adviser on health and social care while Rhodri ignored the havoc in the north Wales NHS/social services. Drakeford was Health Minister when the Tawel Fan Scandal exploded in his face (see post ‘The Tawel Fan Scandal’). No-one was disciplined as a result of Tawel Fan, except for the nurse who blew the whistle, who was sacked and struck off. Some of those who were filmed abusing the patients on Tawel Fan Ward were subsequently caught abusing patients on Bryn Hesketh, another EMI ward (see previous posts).

I’m sure that for low income parents, a baby box with a few basics in it is a nice little goodie, but a functioning health and welfare system is much more important. The Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board is in special measures because the mental health services and maternity services were deemed to be dangerous. Mothers and babies were among those who died.

Drakeford, you are an idiot.

 

This morning it has been announced that complex heart surgery at St George’s Hospital has been stopped after the death of five patients as a result of the ‘toxic’ relationships between the surgeons there. So why are people only being warned now? When Oliver Brooke was jailed, people stated that they would not take their children to St George’s. They were reassured by St George’s and the Gov’t that there was absolutely no problem, Brooke was a one-off and anyway he never abused patients. Brooke was not a one-off, his mates were all still there running the pan-European gang of which he was a leading member and I do not believe that Brooke never targeted his patients. Brooke’s offices at St George’s contained thousands and thousands of child porn pics. I knew the technician who found them – every cupboard in several offices was crammed full. No-one was ever told that, the impression given was that Ollie just had six or seven naughty pictures.

I always wondered why Jackie, the technician who found Brooke’s collection, wasn’t hounded out of her job in the way that I was. Then I remembered something the other day. Jackie kept having miscarriages. The obstetricians at St George’s ‘looked after’ her and just couldn’t find out what the problem was or why those miscarriages kept happening…

 

It’s OK everyone, the problems in the heart surgery unit at St George’s were identified and the rest of the hospital is fine, even though it is in special measures and has been for some time. Only five patients have died as a result of the crazed Top Docs. Honestly, only five of them. And they probably didn’t matter anyway, they won’t have been private patients and they might even have lived at Garrett Lane, as did the patient when I worked at St George’s who was described by a Top Doc as being ‘from a really scummy family in Garrett Lane’.

MI5: When the NHS has been completely colonised by serious organised crime, it is not a good idea to lie to the public to save the reputation of the NHS. It is a stupid, dangerous, lethal path to follow. By the time that Brown and I were 24 years old we could have given you the evidence that would have imprisoned Dafydd, D.G.E. Wood, Tony Francis, Sadie Francis and a few of their accomplices. Instead, although you were filming and recording what was going on, you stood to one side and watched as they destroyed our reputations and lives, as well as those of the other witnesses….

Theresa May, the UK’s PM, served as a Councillor for Merton, 1986-94. St George’s serves the Merton area.

 

BBC News Wales Online reported that ‘job cuts’ at prisons are to blame for the ‘drugs epidemic’. Europe’s largest prison, HMP Berwyn, located at Wrexham, was opened in Feb 2017 and has a major drugs problem. The UK Gov’t has recently ‘invested’ millions in a prison building programme. HMP Berwyn has filled up with Empowered Service Users and addicts, which was exactly what the Gov’t was told would happen. David Hanson, Leanne Wood and Hywel Williams begged for that prison because they believed that it would ‘regenerate the economy’. Prison’s don’t do that, but David, Leanne and Hywel wouldn’t listen.

 

Glyn Davies, the Tory MP for Montgomeryshire, has said that the proposal to cut the number of MPs in Wales is ‘undemocratic’, although he acknowledged that some members of the public don’t like MPs. Why ever would that be Glyn? Glyn was a pal of Emlyn Hooson and his wife Lady Shirley. Lord Emlyn for many years was the Liberal MP for Montgomeryshire. Emlyn was a barrister who concealed organised abuse for the whole of his career. Emlyn and Shirley were good mates with Lord and Lady Waterhouse.

I heard more about the proposed Boundary Commission changes that will remove the constituencies of more than a few MPs on the radio last night. Glyn might be worried, but it is the Labour Party who will suffer most, they will lose 30 seats. Including Jeremy Corbyn’s. That’s a bit of a coincidence isn’t it? Mind you, Thatch abolished the GLC to get rid of Red Ken and he rocked up in the Commons. Radio 4 made a reference to the ‘independent’ Boundary Commission. That’ll be as independent as the Boundary Commission that was Chaired by Ronnie Waterhouse, or the one that was Chaired by the well-camouflaged paedophiles’ friend Professor Eric Sunderland which ensured that Clwyd County Council turned into a pumpkin in 1996, days after the Jillings Report was published, which confirmed that children in the care of Clwyd Social Services had been horrifically abused since the Council was established in 1974 and that there was a ‘culture’ of organised child abuse in north Wales stretching back to before WWII.

That was in the days of Professor Wynn Humphrey Davies and Huw Daniel’s proud father Professor J.E. Daniel, who was an Inspector of Schools and a theologian. Professor J.E. Daniel’s fellow founder of Plaid, Ambrose Bebb, was the grandfather of Guto Bebb, the Tory MP for Aberconwy, who has been mouthing off in the media recently regarding Brexit (see post ‘A Discovery Of Witches’). See previous posts for more info on Guto.

Operation Pallial was proud to announce the conviction of another historical sex offender from north Wales. The news report mentioned that he was ‘quite young’ when he committed the (small) number of offences. He shouldn’t have done it and I’m sure that it wasn’t a pleasant experience for whoever was on the receiving end, but lest everyone’s forgotten, Dafydd, Lucille Hughes, Dr Peter Higson, D.G.E Wood, Dr Sadie Francis, Grace Lewis-Parry, Huw Daniel, Mark Drakeford and many, many more ignored and concealed the mass abuse of children when they were grown adults holding professional positions. They are all free and living affluent lives.

 

In my post ‘A Legend Lives’, I reported that Sir Norman Bettison, a senior officer who was involved with the Hillsborough disaster and then went on to become the Chief Constable of Merseyside and then of West Yorkshire, had been told that all charges against him in relation to Hillsborough have been dropped. It has now been reported that another police officer involved with Hillsborough, David Duckenfield, will face a trial on 95 charges of gross negligence leading to manslaughter. Presumably Duckenfield doesn’t have as many mates in the highest echelons as does Bettison. After all, Sir Norman was Chief Constable of two of the forces which colluded with the North Wales Police for years with regard to the serious organised crime which stemmed from a trafficking gang who murdered witnesses.

One of my comments which followed my post ‘Rivers Of Blood’ provided a brief bit of background information about events in the early 1990s when the paedophile gang launched an attack on a senior sociologist at Bangor University and caused much grief in the process. ‘The Guardian’ were happy to publish the lies and false allegations of the paedophiles’ friends which resulted in the smeared sociologist being harassed by the world’s media. At about that time, the paedophiles’ friends misled and then screwed over one member of staff at Bangor University so badly that he attempted suicide. The one person to offer him support after the suicide bid was the senior sociologist who was attacked by ‘The Guardian’. I don’t think that Peter Preston ever published anything about that.

I was reminded of this when I heard Alan Rusbridger interviewed on Radio 4 about his new book, ‘Breaking News’. Rusbridger took over the editorship of ‘The Guardian’ from Preston; Rusbridger was a senior journo on ‘The Guardian’ when Peter Preston provided so much help to a gang of paedophiles who were under investigation by the police and who really hated an honest sociologist and wanted him out of his job. Rusbridger knew what was happening in north Wales at the time.

Alan Rusbridger stepped down as Editor of ‘The Guardian’ in 2014 and is now Principal of Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford. He is visiting Fellow of Nuffield College, Oxford and Visiting Professor of History at Queen Mary, University of London. Between 2004 and 2013 Rusbridger was Chair of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain. He is a governor of the Ditchley Foundation. 

When ‘The Guardian’ published what they knew were lies fed to them by a trafficking gang, the Chairman of the Scott Trust, which owns ‘The Guardian’, was Hugo Young.

Hugo Young was born in Sheffield into an old recusant family. He was head boy at Ampleforth College. In recent years it has been acknowledged that for decades there was serious abuse of children at Ampleforth which was concealed by the Catholic Church (see previous posts’). A Top Doc has explained in comments on this blog that Top Docs knew about the abuse at Ampleforth and about the wider paedophile ring in Yorkshire and made ludicrous excuses to take no action, even in the face of children with anal injuries.

Hugo Young read law at Balliol College, Oxford and began working for the ‘Yorkshire Post’ in Leeds in 1961. In 1963, Young spent a year as a Harkness Fellow in the US and he spent the next year working as a congressional fellow. In 1965, Young returned to the UK and was recruited by Denis Hamilton of ‘The Sunday Times’. In his second year there, Young became chief leader writer, a position he kept until 1977. From 1973–84, he was also the political editor for ‘The Sunday Times’. He was joint Deputy Editor of ‘The Sunday Times’ from 1981, but his relationship with the paper cooled notably when Murdoch took the ‘The Sunday Times’ over in 1981. The conflict culminated in a series of battles with Editor Brillo, which ultimately led to Young leaving The Sunday Times and joining The Guardian in 1984.

Young continued to write a twice-weekly political column at The Guardian until his death and was widely acclaimed as one of the most important and influential figures in modern British journalism. Young remained on good terms with British Gov’t Ministers, including Blair and Thatch. He wrote a critical biography of Thatch, One of Us (1989), but didn’t mention that her two close friends Jimmy Savile and Sir Peter Morrison were known to be molesting children while supping with her. Young wrote other books, including This Blessed Plot: Britain And Europe From Churchill To Blair (1998).

Young’s Yorkshire/Leeds background and his position as a big beast in the media will have meant that he knew Mark Byford, the former Deputy DG of the BBC and Head of BBC journalism, 2004-11. Mark Byford’s dad was Sir Lawrence Byford, HM Chief Inspector of Constabulary between Jan 1983-March 1987. Between 1979 and 1983, Lawrence Byford was a regional Inspector of Constabulary. Byford had served as a senior officer with the endemically corrupt West Yorkshire Police – throughout the years when Jimmy Savile enjoyed a very cosy relationship with that force. Byford was HMI Chief Inspector of Constabulary while Dafydd and the gang in north Wales were causing havoc and when the utterly rotten North Wales Police colluded with and even assisted them, as well as during the years when the British police stood accused of acting as the personal army of the Thatcher’s Gov’t. See post ‘Top Of The Cops’.

Mark Byford’s boss at the BBC was DG Mark Thompson, under Chairman Michael Grade, frequent star of this blog and someone else who wilfully ignored serious crime committed by a gang of traffickers and did favours for those in high places who facilitated that gang.

 

Hugo Young became Chairman of the Scott Trust in 1989 and helped ‘The Guardian’ through important developments such as the purchase of ‘The Observer’. Young died in 2003, so was still there to help with the fall-out from the Waterhouse Inquiry and Waterhouse Report. I’m only surprised that ‘The Guardian’ didn’t launch another attack on Graham Day. Or indeed on me.

Here’s Hugo with a corrupt Home Secretary who ignored the serious crimes of Dafydd and the gang, with Peter Hain peeping around the corner:

 

There is now an annual Hugo Young lecture, organised by ‘The Guardian’ in Young’s memory. Those who have delivered the Hugo Young lecture include Cameron, Nick Clegg, Ed Miliband and Alex Salmond. 

 

 

My post ‘The Cry Of The Lunatic’ promised information about Ronnie Campbell, the Labour MP for Blyth Valley. Ronnie succeeded the crook John Ryman, who had succeeded Eddie Milne, a Labour MP who had taken on the endemic civic corruption in the region and had his career destroyed as a result.

Ronald Campbell was elected for Blyth Valley in 1987.  He was born in Tynemouth, attended Blyth Ridley County High School and left at 14 to become a coal miner. Campbell worked as a miner between 1958 and 1986; before entering Parliament he was a lay official of the NUM, led picket lines in the 1984-85 miners’ strike and was arrested twice. Campbell was also a District Councillor on Blyth Valley Borough Council from 1969. So he was a Councillor in the north east during the years when the Councillors in that region were endemically corrupt and participating in the sort of enormous wrongdoing which involved people like Poulson and T. Dan Smith that Campbell’s predecessor Eddie Milne tried to challenge, only to find his political career ruined (see post ‘The Cry Of The Lunatic’ and other posts). Campbell was of course serving as a District Councillor for Blyth Valley Borough when the Councils in the north east were hosting a trafficking ring linked to Dafydd et al in north Wales and were sending kids in care to north Wales children’s homes.

Arthur Scargill was a good mate of Michael Mansfield QC, one of the many radical lawyers who kept quiet about organised abuse and trafficking across the UK, including in north Wales, although I wrote to him in 1993 about what was happening to me at the hands of Gwynedd Social Services and the courts. Mansfield famously acted for Scargill when Scargill was arrested during the miners’ strike. Other people involved in Supporting The Miners also turned their backs on those targeted by criminal trafficking gangs. Meleri Tudor, a lawyer from north Wales, was one of those who gave her expertise free of charge to miners during the strike, yet managed to witness en masse perjury and conspiracy in an attempt by Dafydd’s gang to have me imprisoned and not mention anything to anyone about this (see post ‘It’s Just Another Gold Digger’).

Meleri told me quite a bit about her work during the miners’ strike, including her conversations with people in mining communities who read the press coverage of their behaviour and said to Meleri ‘I didn’t realise that the newspapers lied’. Meleri knew that newspapers lied, she knew that mountains of garbage was published for years regarding the non-existence of the paedophile ring in north Wales and she knew that the newspapers were lying when they maintained that people complaining of being abused in north Wales were liars seeking financial reward. Meleri also knew that ‘The Guardian’ was publishing lies when it accused that senior sociologist at Bangor University of discriminating against Welsh people…

 

Ronnie Campbell often voted against Blair’s Gov’t on issues such as the Iraq War, being an outspoken member on the left of the Party. When the Gov’t nationalised Northern Rock in 2008, Campbell declared it ‘the People’s Bank’ and opened an account. In May 2009, during the MPs expenses scandal, Campbell agreed to return over £6,000 that he had claimed for furnishings in his London home.

In 2013, Campbell was one of 22 Labour MPs to vote against same-sex marriage.

Upon re-election in May 2015, Campbell announced that he would stand down at the next general election, although this did not materialise.

Campbell was one of 36 Labour MPs to nominate Jeremy Corbyn as a candidate in the Labour leadership election of 2015 and one of a handful of Labour MPs to publicly support leaving the EU. 

Campbell was one of thirteen MPs to vote against triggering the 2017 General Election. Having previously said that he would stand down at the next election, he changed his mind stating: ‘It was my intention to stand down at the next general election, however due to circumstances following the announcement of the snap election I have decided to stand again for Blyth Valley.’

Ronnie married Deirdre McHale in 1967, who serves on Northumberland County Council. 

In September 2016, Campbell underwent chemotherapy after being diagnosed with stomach cancer and returned to Parliament on 30 November 2016. Just as well that you and Deirdre never mentioned that huge paedophile ring which has operated in the north east for most of your adult life then Ronnie, or you might have found that somehow the Top Docs couldn’t treat you for that stomach cancer! Having said that, where stomach cancer is concerned it was a close run thing anyway. In 1990, the paedophiles’ friends of Ysbyty Gwynedd, assisted by none other than Sir Richard Doll no less, needing to generate a bit of good PR for themselves, perpetrated a laughable research fraud regarding the supposed cause of stomach cancer, which had it not been exposed within weeks would have thrown a spanner in the works regarding that whole field of research (see post ‘They Think It’s All Over – It Is Now’). Not that it held their careers back – one of them has spent the last few decades teaching statistics to psychology students at Bangor University and another one ended up leading the clinical trials unit at Bangor University.

 

 

My post ‘No Cuts’ provided details of Tony Benn’s career, another Champion of the Oppressed who ignored the organised abuse of vulnerable people, even when I wrote to him about it. Despite his undying loyalty to the white collar criminals who were sexually exploiting children and vulnerable adults, Tony Benn nevertheless went for a belt and braces approach and ensured that he remained very, very good mates with them all at St Thomas’s Hospital, an institution which not only employed/employs a few of those who directly protected Dafydd and the gang, but which also has a sizeable proportion of very rich Top Docs who run lucrative Harley Street practices as well as pulling in fat NHS salaries.

Tony Benn was a fourth generation MP – his father, his paternal grandfather Lord Stansgate and his great-grandfathers Sir John Benn and Daniel Holmes were all MPs, mostly with factions of the Liberal Party. Benn’s own children – and grandchildren – are politically active as well. Benn’s son Hilary became a Labour MP and was notoriously Blairite/centrist, at a time when Blair was known to loathe Tony Benn. Tony Benn always stressed that Hilary being to the right of him politically never caused any strain between them.

Hilary James Wedgwood Benn has been the Labour MP for Leeds Central since 1999. Hilary will therefore have known about Jimmy Savile’s activities in the Leeds area, including in the NHS there. Hilary will also remember the case of the two Yorkshire psychiatrists, Michael Haslam and William Kerr, who raped and sexually abused female patients for decades. Complaints were repeatedly made over a period of years by more than 100 patients but were ignored. One brave Angel who spoke out was demoted. An academic at Leeds University threatened to go public on what Kerr and Haslam were doing and was told that he’d lose his job if he did. Kerr and Haslam’s offending finally became public in 1996, at the end of their careers (see post ‘All The Ingredients Of A Scandal’). They both retired with their pensions intact and only Haslam went to prison, in 2003 – Kerr provided medical evidence of illness – and that was for a matter of just a few months. It was also revealed that the women whom these Top Docs had repeatedly assaulted were not permitted to have recorded upon their medical records that they had been assaulted by the Top Doctors who had compiled their records and described the nature of their ‘problems’.

When Kerr and Haslam were finally exposed, MIND spokespeople were all over the media expressing their outrage. At the time, I was repeatedly raising my concerns regarding the mistreatment of patients in north Wales at the hands of Dafydd et al only to be ignored by everyone, including MIND.

Dafydd held ‘clinics’ in Yorkshire, including in, of all places, the Queen’s Hotel, Leeds. Jimmy Savile hung out at the Queen’s Hotel Leeds and lay in state there after his death.

When Dafydd finally turns his toes up, I look forward to his coffin being pulled through the streets of north Wales by black horses with their manes plaited a la Ronnie Kray, while the route is lined with weeping mourners throwing flowers at the coffin.

Perhaps Dafydd can be buried on Church Island at Menai Bridge, a sort of north Wales variant of Princess Di’s resting place.

‘We didn’t know.’

Neither of course did Hilary Benn.

 

Hilary served in the Cabinet, 2003-10, under both Blair and Brown. From 2010 to 2016, Hilary served in various Labour Party Shadow Cabinets, most recently as Shadow Foreign Secretary, May 2015 until June 2016, when he was dismissed by Jeremy. In October 2016, Hilary was elected as the Chair of the Exiting the European Union Select Committee.

Hilary was the second son of Hilary and Caroline Benn – Caroline was an educationalist who also kept quiet about the abuse of children (see post ‘No Cuts’). Hilary studied at Sussex University, which has excellent radical credentials, but is also located near Brighton, along with the brothels owned by John Allen, who trafficked kids from north Wales to those brothels. A number of senior figures at Sussex University have been complicit with concealing organised abuse and a former Sussex student from north Wales who spilt the paedophiles’ pints decades ago has never been allowed to forget it. Neither have any of his friends or indeed members of his family. See post ‘Anthem For Doomed Youth’. This man later became VC of Bangor University and while he was in that role, some rather odd things were happening at Bangor University. Such as my computer being stolen by John McTernan’s brother-in-law – that was in 2005. Hilary was in Blair’s Cabinet at the time. Hilary, do you have any idea why Blair’s adviser’s brother-in-law might have made off with my computer?

By the way Hilary, among the many seriously bizarre people whom Brown and I found ourselves approached by over the many years since we complained about a paedophile gang who were murdering witnesses, was someone who asked me to accompany them to the Labour Party conference who said that they wanted to introduce me to your dad. This was just after John McTernan’s brother-in-law stole my computer. The person who wanted to introduce me to your dad was someone called Rachel, whom I later found out was transgender. I only discovered that because, after asking me and Brown to act as ‘expert witnesses’ in court to get her off driving offences and then offering us money to do it when we said no, Rachel told me that she had been abused by a therapist in Brighton called Karen and sent me heaps of documents relating to it all. Among the documents was a statement from Karen in which Karen said that she was very angry that Rachel had not told her that she had previously been male. Karen also alleged that Rachel had admitted to past membership of fascist groups and taking part in violent attacks on gays and blacks. Rachel e mailed me stressing that this allegation was CRAP.

Rachel was an HGV driver and was in danger of losing her licence as a result of a drink driving charge, which is why she had the bright idea of asking Brown and me to falsely represent ourselves in return for money to get her out of trouble. Rachel told me that a Top Doctor had helpfully lied on oath for her the last time that she was caught bladdered behind the wheel. I stressed that we were not lying Top Docs, we were honest sociologists.

Rachel also gave me a great deal of dirt on Diane Abbott whom she seemed to know and told me all about the role that she (Rachel) played in the attempt to get John McDonnell elected as Labour Party leader a few years ago. Rachel certainly had an exciting life, I’m not surprised that a drip of a therapist was completely confused by her. One thing that I was never able to understand was Rachel’s desire for the body of Bill Clinton, which she told me about as well.

 

Strange but true

 

At one point Rachel was threatening to come to north Wales to see me. So I told everyone whom I knew that if they spotted an HGV lorry travelling in the direction of Caernarfon with a drunk transgendered person behind the wheel, could they please tip me off so that I could make myself scarce.

Rachel was most disappointed when I refused to accompany her to the Labour Party conference to meet Wedgie Benn and John McDonnell et al, but I’d realised by then that there was no telling what was going to happen to me if I ever met Rachel in the flesh, so I made my excuses in the tradition of a good ‘News Of The World’ reporter. Rachel did try her hardest though, she left eleven mad messages for me on my boss’s answer machine and then started ringing up a whole variety of people in the University, asking them if they knew me.

Do you happen to know Rachel Hilary? Was she a regular chez Tony and Caroline?

 

After graduating, Hilary worked as a research officer for ASTMS and was then Head of Policy for MSF. Regular readers will remember that it was the corrupt MSF reps David Hole and his mates who colluded with the wrongdoing at St George’s Hospital Medical School and used their knowledge of patient harm and serious crime – including the facilitating of Dafydd’s trafficking ring in north Wales and the linked ring which operated in south London – to shore up their own positions (see previous posts).

My documents contain letters to Wandsworth Social Services – who were colluding with Dafydd et al as well as running the south London gang – from Dr Tony Francis, explaining how dangerous I was and that if they needed further information about the threat that I posed to other people, they were welcome to write to Lucille Hughes for further info. I have never met Lucille Hughes. See previous posts eg ‘Some Very Eminent Psychiatrists From London’.

After Dr Tony Francis took early retirement from the NHS – following a well-publicised breakdown and after falling out with the rest of the paedophiles’ friends – he enrolled for a history degree at Bangor University. The VC of Bangor who received such grief from the paedophiles’ friends held a Chair in the School of History.

Dr Sadie Francis followed her husband into retirement a few years after, as the paedophiles’ friends at the Hergest Unit began to rip each others throats out. Sadie enrolled for a course in Bangor University’s School of Lifelong Learning. The Head of Lifelong Learning at that time was dear old Meri Huws, who in the 1980s had been a community social worker employed by Gwynedd Social Services. Meri’s patch had included the Ty’r Felin children’s home, where children were abused and trafficked, including to Dolphin Square (see post ‘Are You Local?’).

 

Hilary Benn was Head of Policy at MSF when MSF was using to its maximum advantage the conviction of Professor Oliver Brooke at St George’s for the possession of child porn. A number of St George’s consultants were also discovered in Cynthia Payne’s brothel for members of high society at Ambleside Avenue in Streatham during the various police raids on Cynthia’s place, but that info was never made public. See post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part III’.

 

After joining the Labour Party, Benn was elected as a Councillor on Ealing Borough Council in 1979, on which he served for several years, rising to the rank of Deputy Leader, 1986-90. When I worked at St George’s, one of the obstetricians there lived at Ealing. When I was doing my MSc at Royal Postgraduate Medical School/Hammersmith Hospital, one of my fellow postgrads was a dentist who lived at Ealing. Neither of these Ealing residents, to my knowledge, were abusing their positions themselves, but they knew that other people were and kept quiet.

After the 1997 General Election, Benn was appointed as a Spad to David Blunkett, then the Secretary of State for Education and Employment. By 1997, there had been scandal after scandal regarding the abuse of children in schools, particularly special schools and residential schools. Many of those scandals had concerned schools in north Wales. In 1997, the Waterhouse Inquiry was underway and Waterhouse was hearing about the most serious abuse of children in residential schools/schools attached to children’s homes in north Wales. Blunkett has been around since the dawn of time, he knew all about Dafydd and the related gangs, as well as Jimmy Savile – after all Blunkett ran the People’s Republic of Sheffield, 1980-87 – and in his role as Home Secretary, Blunkett concealed further layers of wrongdoing by Dafydd et al and awarded a medal for ‘good citizenship’ to a woman who lived in Gwynedd who had a track record of intimidating ‘service users’ who lived in her village. This Good Citizen has a close relative who raped a six year old girl, but it was made quite clear to me by a Top Doctor and his lovely wife – who is an aspiring Lady Vicar – that I had to keep my mouth shut about that. See earlier posts for info about David Blunkett’s previous.

 

Since Labour’s defeat at the 2010 General Election, Benn has served on the front bench in the Shadow Cabinets of Harriet, Ed Miliband and Jezza. Harriet’s dad was a Harley Street Top Doctor, as was her granddad and Ed’s Uncle Harry was of course a consultant at Guy’s and Tommy’s, along with Dafydd’s mates and protectors.

In 2002, Hilary Benn became the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Prisons and Probation in the Home Office, serving as a Deputy to Lord Charlie Falconer as Minister of State (Criminal Justice). At the Home Office, Benn led a task force investigating internet paedophilia, which subsequently recommended the introduction of the new offence of ‘grooming’.  In January 2003, Hilary had responsibility for introducing the Sexual Offences Bill in the Commons.

It was while Hilary was at the Home Office that the paedophiles’ friends participated in yet another round of industrial scale perjury in another attempt to have me imprisoned – that time for ‘threats to kill’. Alun Davies, the senior NHS manager who was a key mover and shaker in it all, told everyone who would listen that I would be going to prison for seven years. I was on bail for two years, during which time I lost my job and my house. The case collapsed on the first day of the trial, when it was clear that eight or so Angels as well as Alun Davies had lied to the police. See post ‘Interesting Happenings In The Legal System’. There was no investigation into the perjury or into an assault on me by an Angel and three Angelic assistants.

 

Hilary Benn served as Secretary of State for the Dept of International Development, 2003-07, in Blair’s Gov’t. In 2007, the ‘New Statesman’ noted that ‘Benn’s work at DfID … has often been at odds with the Bush administration’. In particular, an example was Benn’s opposition to the United States policy of increasing abstinence when it came to fighting AIDS in Africa, whereas Benn took a ‘harm reduction’ approach. Benn was also dismissive of US policy, saying: ‘Abstinence-only programmes are fine if you want to abstain, but not everybody does.’ Indeed not Hilary, some of those sexually abusing kids in care in north Wales refused to abstain, even when they contracted HIV, such as Thomas Tyrell-Kenyon, the son of Lloyd Tyrell-Kenyon aka Lord Kenyon. Lord Kenyon was a Director of Lloyds Bank, President of UCNW, Chairman of Clwyd Health Authority, a Flintshire County Councillor, a member of the North Wales Police Authority, the highest ranking Freemason in north Wales and many other things as well (see post ‘A Bit More Paleontology’).

In late October 2006, Benn announced that he would be standing in the 2007 Labour Party Deputy Leadership election. One of his earliest backers was Dennis Skinner, who kept quiet about the paedophile ring on his patch in Derbyshire, which was linked to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales. Like many people of his generation who became big names in the Labour movement, Skinner attended Ruskin College. Matt Arnold, the Head of Bryn Estyn, taught at Ruskin College in the mid-1960s and Peter Howarth, Arnold’s friend and colleague at Axwell Park Approved School and then at Bryn Estyn, was taught by Arnold at Ruskin. John Prescott was a student at Ruskin while Arnold and Howarth were there.

The Lord Prescott, Deputy Prime Minister of the UK, 1997-2007:

  • John Prescott says some 'bitter' Blairites are trying to ...
  • Life is tweet, says John Prescott, as Twitter reaches 10m ...
  • John Prescott - Wikipedia
  • John Prescott's resignation from privy council welcomed by ...

 

The Lord Prescott managed to remain in high office despite barely being able to string a coherent sentence together – ‘This Labour Gov’t will increase ‘omelessness’ – and punching someone in the chops, twice, when on a walkabout in north Wales. The nation was subsequently entertained when Tracy Temple Opened Her Heart to the ‘Daily Mail’ and supplied details of her Ugandan discussions with Prezza.

  • Tracey Temple (@traceytemple) | Twitter
  • Only John Prescott could make me feel sorry for Tracy ...

 

Prezza subsequently went for the sympathy vote by claiming to have an eating disorder. He won’t have sought treatment for that at St George’s Hospital Medical School/Springfield Hospital, because an Angel admitted to me that the genius which was Professor Arthur Crisp simply discharged and refused to treat patients who weren’t making a good recovery. That is why Crisp had the best recovery rate among his patients of any Top Doc in the UK. I do hope that Prezza didn’t risk his sanity with The Priory Group either, because their Clinical Lead for Eating Disorders is Dr Adrienne Key, who ‘trained’ and worked at St George’s/ Springfield when those institutions were concealing and facilitating paedophile/trafficking gangs. I used to watch Adrienne shut the door in the face of distressed patients who were trying to talk to her. If the patients still didn’t piss off, Adrienne would shut herself in the Angels’ office and tell the Angels to get rid of them. Therefore an Angel would emerge from the office and yell at the patient to ‘leave Dr Key alone’. If the ward manager Stephanie, a particularly aggressive Australian Angel, was on duty, Stephanie would really push the boat out and swear at the patient. I always expected to see Stephanie opening a can of ale with her teeth, but she must have only drunk when off duty. See previous posts for details of the wonders of Arthur Crisp as well as Adrienne and her glorious career.

 

In 2007, Benn was the bookmakers’ favourite for the Deputy Leadership of the Labour Party, which was triggered by the resignation of Prezza. In the event Harriet won. 

In 2007, Benn was appointed as the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, following Gordon’s election as Leader. Benn succeeded David Miliband in this post and therefore took over what had been Miliband’s responsibility to respond to the threat to cattle from bovine TB. The recommended option from the Chief Scientific Advisor until 2007, Sir David King, was a badger cull. In April 2010, on Benn’s watch, a badger cull was announced in Wales, after the High Court in Cardiff rejected a legal challenge from The Badger Trust.

Bovine TB led to some very strange events in Wales. There is just as much evidence that TB is not transferred to cattle by badgers as there is that badgers do transmit TB, which was why the cull was so controversial. Vets with sound credentials opposed the cull. Anxieties over bovine TB in Wales led to the extraordinary scenes involving Shambo, a bull who became famous. Shambo was a sacred bull who lived in the interfaith Skanda Vale Temple near Llanpumsaint. In April 2007, a routine skin test for bovine TB bovine indicated that Shambo may have been in contact with the bacterium that causes the disease. As a result, the Welsh Government required that Shambo be slaughtered. Skanda Vale disputed this and campaigned for a reprieve. They were backed by the Hindu religious community at large and by other well-wishers. Skanda Vale also set up a camera so that the public could go online and watch Shambo.

Shambo:

 

 

On 15 July 2007, Deputy High Court judge Gary Hickinbottom ruled that slaughtering Shambo would be unlawful, since the two slaughter orders had failed to give enough weight to the rights of the monks. He ruled that killing Shambo would violate the human rights of the Skanda Vale community, which has a right to ‘manifest’ its religious faith, according to Article 9 of the European Convention on Human Rights. A spokesman for the Farmers’ Union of Wales called the ruling ‘ludicrous,’ arguing that it ‘contradicts the principles upon which successful TB eradication programmes throughout the world have been based for generations.’ On 23 July 2007, the Court of Appeal upheld the Welsh Assembly Government’s appeal. Lord Justice Pill said former Rural Affairs Minister Jane Davidson acted lawfully when she refused to make an exception for Shambo as a sacred bull. David Miliband, who was at the time still Secretary of State for DEFRA, confirmed in his official blog that the matter came under the jurisdiction of the Welsh Assembly, not the House of Commons.

It is widely accepted in Wales, even by the most loyal of Labour Party supporters, that Labour at Westminster tell Labour in the Welsh Assembly what to do, even though there is much strife between the two groups.

Skanda Vale was notified that Shambo would be taken away for slaughter on 26 July 2007 at 8 am. Veterinarians arrived at the temple at 08:50 on 26 July accompanied by police and other officials, but without a cattle truck to remove Shambo. They were refused entry by the monks because they had no warrant and so they left to obtain one from a local magistrate. A warrant could not be issued until they had been refused entry, according to ‘The Guardian’. One of the monks said ‘They will have to physically desecrate a temple to get him … we will be having an act of worship in front of where he is. If the Welsh Assembly Government want to take him out of there, they will have to interrupt an act of worship…Our religious laws prevent us from assisting in the killing of any life and so we will not help the inspectors remove Shambo.’ At 2:00 pm the officials returned with two warrants which gave them permission to enter within one calendar month, but failed to gain access to the bull. At about 4:00 pm, police used bolt cutters to get through the gate and move their vehicles – including an animal trailer and four riot vans. The bull was removed from the site at around 7:25 pm, after protesters had been removed, who had come from as far away as New Zealand and Switzerland. Shambo was taken to a local abattoir and officials confirmed on 27 July that Shambo had been slaughtered.

Here are a few observations.

Testing ‘positive’ for bovine TB is not a conclusive or definitive process. Furthermore, animals which do test positive may not necessarily be carrying, let alone be suffering from, bovine TB; they may merely have been exposed to the bacterium. A similar process led to me, in my thirties, ‘testing positive’ for Rubella. I have never been vaccinated against Rubella, caught Rubella or even as far I know been near someone suffering from it.

Even if Shambo did have bovine TB, treatment was available and Skanda Vale were prepared to pay for it – no human would be slaughtered for testing positive for, or indeed for developing, full blown TB. Slaughtering Shambo was completely unnecessary.

Those involved in the murder of Shambo included two paedophiles’ friends. Jane Davidson, the then Rural Affairs Minister, is from Birmingham and has been involved with teaching/lecturing and knows much about Dafydd and the paedophiles but has spent her career keeping quiet (see previous posts). Lord Justice Pill, who upheld Davidson’s decision to murder Shambo after Skanda Vale appealed, was the man who in his previous incarnation as Sir Justice Pill, sat in the High Court in Cardiff in May 1989 for more than an hour and entertained the lies that Dafydd and the paedophile gang told about me in their attempt to gain a High Court injunction which would have prevented me writing to anyone in Gwynedd Health Authority in an attempt to pursue my complaints against them. Sir Malcolm Pill didn’t actually give Gwynedd Health Authority an injunction with the terms that they requested, which really pissed the Health Authority off. Their response was to instruct Andrew Park, the crooked lawyer employed by the Welsh Office, to collaborate with Gwynedd Social Services and Gwynedd’s corrupt lawyer Ron Evans, in order to gain an injunction on the terms that Pill had refused. My documentation shows that Park and Evans from then on encouraged even more false allegations, conspiracy and perjury.

While I was grateful that Malcolm Pill did not give Gwynedd Health Authority what they wanted, Malcolm Pill read scores of documents which showed quite clearly that patients in north Wales were complaining of being abused, assaulted, unlawfully arrested and imprisoned and that these complaints were not being investigated. Pill also saw evidence of perjury, conspiracy and of Dafydd intimidating people – including police officers – with his Doberman dog. Pill said not a word about any of this. Neither did the two barristers presenting the arguments to Pill – Ian Murphy and Crispin Masterman. Ian Murphy and Crispin Masterman later became judges themselves and both have presided over child abuse trials in Wales.

See post ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’ for the full story regarding Sir Malcolm Pill and the perjury that was involved in the attempt to gain the desired injunction.

When I was working as a post-doc at Bangor University in 2006 I encountered someone who knew Ian Murphy and Crispin Masterman as a result of previously working as a secretary in a Chambers in Swansea. She was a woman called Sue Davies who turned up as a secretary at Bangor University. Sue Davies lied, bullied other members of staff so badly that at least one secretary left her job because of her, forged documentation in order to cover for her many ‘sick days’ and threatened to sue me for defamation of character when I e mailed her and asked her to please stop trying to access confidential information about me. Davies wrote me a splendid letter in such a way that I was obviously supposed to believe that it had been written by a solicitor and e mailed it to me at 7 am one morning. My response was to laugh, so Davies then arrived at the office of the corrupt HR Director, Lyn Meadows, a good friend of the paedophiles herself, demanding that a bullying investigation be launched with regard to my shocking tendencies to laugh at attempts to intimidate me.

Sue – I know that you enjoyed telling people that you were ‘Clerk to the Chambers’ but I know that you weren’t. Because the Clerk to the Chambers is a lawyer, not a daft unqualified bint who is a member of the typing pool.

Not that Sue Davies intended to remain as an admin assistant for long, she clearly wanted to really be Chief Clerk to the Chambers, because I subsequently discovered that she had applied for a place on the law degree at Bangor University and had even been offered a place. This was after Davies had bullied, harassed, lied and produced forged documentation. Did Lyn Meadows eve
