My post ‘And Death Shall Have No Dominion’ described how, after Nerys, the late wife of Merfyn Jones the then VC of Bangor University who was finally hounded out of public life by the paedophiles’ friends some five years after Nerys died in the care of Dafydd’s mates at the Walton Centre, was laid to rest in Llanfaglan Church, the remains of dear old Lord Snowdon also ended up there; Lord Snowdon of the Gwerin who was born in and spent his entire life living in Belgravia.
Previous posts eg. ‘Badlands’ discussed how Nerys herself was caught in the cross-fire of the paedophiles’ friends in the 1990s, when the paedophiles’ friends, assisted by ‘The Guardian’, went to war on Graham Day, a senior sociologist at Bangor University and accused Graham of racist and corrupt practices when appointing academic staff. I have never been clear exactly when the fireworks happened; I had always presumed that it was in about 1993, but it must have been a bit later than that, because an article written by Nerys in ‘Prospect’ magazine mentions that she only returned to her native north Wales from Harvard in 1994. I guess that the Gwerin-inspired chaos must have happened in approx 1996, because I think Nerys had been back in Gwynedd a while before it all kicked off.
The Gwerin were in absolute overdrive in 1996, because they knew that there was going to be a Public Inquiry into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. Lest readers wonder why I can’t remember the events re Nerys and the Gwerin, it is because by 1996 my life was just one long round of having to defend myself and often Patient F as well from unfounded allegations of serious criminal offences made by the mental health services. It was of course in 1996 that we were arrested on yet more trumped up charges on the basis of the perjury of an Angel, Bridget Lloyd, which those we know and love were hoping would result in a long period of incarceration for me. We were acquitted in early 1997.
Nerys’s article in ‘Prospect’ mentioned an incident involving Nerys when she worked as a warden in one of the halls of residence at Bangor University. She had taken issue with a Page 3 style poster in one of the rooms in the Porter’s lodge and had been told by the porters to piss off, it was their office and cor blimey these feminists don’t have any sense of humour. I am someone who wouldn’t be rattled by a Page 3 or soft porn pic in a porters’ lodge, but Nerys’s article also mentioned something far more worrying: that one of the porters whom had been involved in the confrontation with her had subsequently disappeared from Bangor University after a female student made a complaint of him improperly touching her. Nerys’s article wasn’t about these matters per se, it was an article discussing ‘political correctness’, but just as Brown and Baker dared do when we mentioned a few things in our publications that we didn’t consider at all controversial at the time, the Gwerin hit the roof.
Nerys’s article was published in ‘Prospect’, Feb 20 1997. The Waterhouse Inquiry had begun the previous month.
The problem with working at Bangor University and publishing certain matters that are factual, do not involve a breach of confidence and may even have appeared in the media elsewhere first, is that because the whole region, including Bangor University, hosted a paedophile/trafficking gang for decades, those who weren’t directly involved are treading on eggshells and those who were involved are ready to gun down anyone who looks as though they might have some knowledge of what went on and who did it. Nerys gew up in Gwynedd, she knew about those we know and love and Nerys will have known that re the halls of residence, there was potential for a bigger scandal than the porter.
Dr Tony Jones, the Oliver Reed of north Wales, was the senior warden in the halls of residence and Tony Jones was very friendly with some of the members of the gang. Tony Jones was an odd man whom some people loathed and was the subject of speculation that he may have been involved in sexual activity with some of the male students, but no-one ever stated this for certain. What was certain was that he was mates with members of Dafydd’s gang, including corrupt police officers. Previous posts and comments which follow posts eg. ‘Dr Adrianne Reveley – A Loving Tribute’ have described how Jones, a marine geologist unknown outside marine geology and mountaineering circles, was the star of a ‘This Is Your Life’ episode in Jan 1993, recorded at the end of 1992.
Tony Jones was the most unlikely person to have been of interest to the viewers of ‘This Is Your Life’. The programme was a parade of people who claimed to have been rescued from certain death by Tony Jones, who was a member of the Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Team. The episode is available on You Tube and is worth watching; guest after guest does a little voice-over describing Their Hell when they were caught out in Snowdonia and they finish with ‘and then I saw you Tony and you saved my life that night; without you and the hospital in Bangor, I would not be here today’.
Hilarious, one of the most dangerous, corrupt hospitals in the UK, staffed and run by Dafydd’s mates, receiving free PR on prime time TV as a result of the heroics of Tony Jones. Not a word was mentioned about Jones’s racism – it was bad, Tony Jones was a white South African and not Peter Hain either, Jones used to call black students ‘niggers’ in lectures – and not a word about that jolly little joke that Jones played on a student who’d pissed him off which involved Jones’s corrupt mates in the North Wales Police wrongfully arresting the student, keeping him in the cells overnight and then kicking him out again without him being charged. All those young men who’s relationships with Tony Jones were subject to such speculation trooped on to the stage and explained to Aspel that Tony is ‘like a father to us’.
When Tony Jones who was mates with Dafydd’s gang starred with Michael Aspel on TV, the North Wales Police were investigating with regard to the presence of a possible VIP paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire, which was concealed at the highest levels of Gov’t.
A visitor to Bryn Estyn:

With Another Good Friend, Who Was Chancellor of UCNW and the Nephew Of Lord Snowdon:
Michael Aspel is always the gent on TV but he was a BBC star – including of children’s light entertainment – when Savile and Rolf were molesting in dressing rooms. Aspel busied himself with, among other things, compering Miss World, thus broadcasting the girls’ vital statistics while they were in their swimsuits and chatting to them about how they wanted to travel and work with children when they did the bit in their evening wear. It was their chance to marry Bruce Forsyth if they didn’t really want to work with children.
Aspel starred in many programmes, including ‘Give Us A Clue’ and ‘Strange But True?’ and he interviewed Thatch on his ITV chat show ‘Aspel and Company’.
Michael Aspel originated in Battersea but during WW II he was evacuated to Somerset. I was always told that Aspel was sent to Bridgwater, but his wiki entry states that he went to Chard. Aspel has said that he was very unhappy during his four years in Somerset but he didn’t explain why. In London, Aspel attended the independent Emanuel School in Battersea. Battersea is in the Borough of Wandsworth. Wandsworth Social Services were facilitating the paedophile ring facilitated by St George’s Hospital Medical School and were in direct contact with Dafydd, Tony Francis and Lucille Hughes just before I was forced out of my job at St George’s in 1991. Donald Naismith, the Director of Education for Wandsworth, was known to be abusing kids in care. See previous posts.

A nice selection of influential people there who could well understand that Fings Break when people upset the gang and thus could be relied upon to:
Aspel worked as a drainpipe-layer and gardener and sold advertising space for the ‘Western Mail’ in Cardiff. He worked as a teaboy at William Collins publishers in London and then entered National Service. Aspel took up a job at the David Morgan department store in Cardiff until 1955, then joined the BBC Welsh Drama Repertory Company before working as newsreader for the BBC in Cardiff in 1957. Aspel also acted in Cardiff, in a BBC Children’s Hour serial “Counterspy”, produced by BBC Wales and written by and starring John Darran. By the early 1960s, Aspel had become one of four regular newsreaders on the BBC.
Aspel has been married three times and has seven children. He married Dian Sessions in 1957 and they had two children and divorced in 1961. Aspel married Anne Reed, a TV scriptwriter, in 1962 and they had twin children and divorced in 1967. Aspel married actress Elizabeth Power, best known for her role in ‘EastEnders’ (they had two sons), but he left her for Irene Clarke, a Production Assistant on This Is Your Life.
My post ‘Apocalypse Now’ discussed how NHS staff and managers in the East End who had colluded with Dafydd’s partner gangs in that area and Peter Shore, who along with his wife Liz Shore, a Top Doctor at the very top of the DHSS (see previous posts), had also colluded with Dafydd et al, tapped Ken Clarke and Thatcher’s Gov’t – who had concealed the serious organised crime – for money to convert the decrepit Mildmay Mission Hospital in Shoreditch into an AIDS hospice in the late 1980s, when rent boys began dying in such high numbers. Numerous victims of Dafydd’s gang died in the Mildmay, concealed from the rest of the world. Everyone caring for them and funding their care knew who they were and that they had contracted AIDS after being coerced into sex work while in children’s homes in north Wales. Some of the EastEnders cast were Patrons of the Mildmay.
Aspel is a Vice-President of the Children’s Trust, a UK charidee for children with brain injury. He is also a Patron and long time supporter of Princess Alice Hospice, Esher.
Aspel is a supporter of Cancer Research UK; I worked for CR UK and witnessed the research fraud myself. See post ‘Oh Lordy! It’s CR UK!’. Aspel certainly seems to have touched my life on quite a regular basis. As a result of his association with CR UK, Aspel was made a Freeman of the Borough of Elmbridge, Surrey in April 2008.
My post ‘A Vampire At Glyndwr University!’ details the ‘memorandum’ by a group of ‘retired people’ who ‘played prominent roles in the NHS and public life in north Wales’ which was submitted in 2008 to the Select Committee on Welsh Affairs with regard to the organisation of cross border health services services, which were at that time under discussion by Westminster and the Welsh Assembly. I mentioned in my post that every name on that memorandum was a member of Dafydd’s network; the leading name on the memo was that of Huw Thomas, the Chief Executive of Gwynedd Health Authority, 1983-96.
Huw Thomas was a paedophiles’ friend of the highest order. Huw was Chief Exec of Gwynedd Health Authority while patients were abused, died when they should not have, when documents were forged, evidence planted and NHS staff perjured themselves in Court in order to secure convictions against witnesses to the gang’s crimes. Furthermore the Health Authority coffers were inexplicably empty although the money had certainly not been spent on NHS services. In 1989 there were questions in the House about the havoc prevailing (see post ‘A Visit To Gwynedd Archives’) and a hit squad from the Welsh Office was sent into Gwynedd in a vain attempt to get the show back on the road again.
The irony was that everyone was concealing the same criminality in the Health Authority presided over by Huw Thomas and the Health Authority Chair, Noreen Edwards. The questions in the House came from Plaid MPs Dafydd Wigley and Ieuan Wyn Jones, who were friends with Dafydd and the gang. The questions were answered by the corrupt Welsh Office Minister, Wyn – later Lord Wyn – Roberts, who was er friends with Dafydd and the gang. It was David Hunt as Minister at the Welsh Office who was given the task of actually confronting Thomas and Edwards re the fuckwittery; Hunt was friends with Dafydd and the gang. At the time, Hunt’s boss, the Secretary of State for Wales, was Peter Walker. Walker was not only on board with Dafydd and the gang, but he had been associated with Beata Brookes, former social worker, Tory MEP, 1979-89 and a key player in the gang, since their days in the Young Conservatives as long ago as the late 1950s/early 60s. See previous posts. The whole of the Welsh Office which sent in the management consultants was at that very time concealing the criminality in north Wales and had been since the establishment of the Welsh Office; indeed it continued to do so. There was not one person who was not colluding. See post ‘The Cradle Of Filth’.
Huw Thomas and Noreen Edwards were not removed and after Huw retired he continued his involvement in north Wales ‘community’ life as well as his charidee work for the Aga Khan Foundation in Tajikistan. Read about Huw’s life of crime in my post ‘The Naked Civil Servants’.
The memorandum was submitted the year that Nerys died in the care of Dafydd’s mates at the Walton Centre. At the time, Edwina Hart, the Welsh Gov’t Health Minister, was trying to impose an NHS reorganisation which would have meant that neurology/neurosurgery patients from north Wales would be referred to south Wales, either Swansea or Cardiff. When I wrote ‘A Vampire At Glyndwr University!’ I naively thought that Edwina was trying to do that because she knew that those bastards had conspired to finish off Nerys and had put her foot down. Sadly not. Edwina was scrapping with those we know and love but she was not doing it to defend the welfare and lives of anyone in north Wales; it was a shameless attempt to buy the votes of people in south west Wales, Edwina being the AM for Gower. See previous posts. Ah the doctors they were wonderful and ooh Edwina loves the NHS! Meanwhile the north Wales contingent were fighting Edwina tooth and nail because they wanted the right to continue to kill any Enemy Of The Paedophiles themselves.
As well as Huw Thomas, one of the other Leaders Of The Charge against Edwina’s plans to send potential targets of the gang to south Wales was Professor Robert Owen, the retired Professor of Surgery from Liverpool University. See post ‘In Memoriam -Professor Robert Owen’. Robert Owen was a paid-up member of the gang, a pal of Dafydd’s and was the man who in 1989 organised the cover-up of the criminality of Dafydd, Tony Francis, Gwynedd Health Authority (including Huw Thomas and Noreen Edwards) and Gwynedd Social Services, after being appointed by the Welsh Office to organise an ‘investigation’ into my complaint. See post ‘Enter Professor Robert Bluglass CBE’.
Hansard records that questions were asked in the House about Gwynedd Health Authority on 23 March 1989. By that time, the Welsh Office had appointed Dafydd’s mate Robert Owen to organise a cover-up with regard to my very serious complaint about Gwynedd and Clwyd Health Authorities and Gwynedd Social Services. Owen had already appointed Robert Bluglass, one of Dafydd’s mates and Dr Colin Berry, a member of one of Dafydd’s partner gangs in Coventry, to hold the ‘inquiry’ into my complaint. The rigged inquiry took place in July 1989. The inquiry was originally due to be held in the spring of 1989, as I remember March. I travelled from Surrey, where I was then living, to north Wales as requested, to find a very friendly but apologetic Prof Owen explaining that the inquiry had been cancelled at the last minute because one of the key people had been taken ill and they had not had time to contact me and tell me not to travel.
I am sure that Prof Owen told me at that meeting that it was Dafydd who had been ‘taken ill’, because I remember thinking ‘I have waited more than two years for this, I have been wrongfully arrested, Dafydd has attempted to bribe and threaten me into dropping my complaint, I have been harassed non-stop, letters have been ignored and High Court injunctions have been sought in order to try to stop me pursuing my complaint and now Dafydd has pulled a sickie at the final hour’. I even made jokes about it in letters to Gwynedd Health Authority. Yet in his final Report Bluglass noted that I was so mad and vindictive that I had even wrongly accused poor old Dafydd when it was he, Bluglass, who had been rushed into hospital!
Bluglass, if you are still alive, would you like to comment on anything that I have published on this blog and tell me why the world allowed you to conduct yourself in this manner? You were an Expert on mental health legislation yet you were clearly incapable of following any legislation or protocol yourself.
The minions at Bangor University were unaware that the Top Doctors had ordered that Nerys be executed because Merfyn was protecting her privacy. The first that most of us knew of it was when we attended a public lecture by Lord Charlie Falconer at Bangor University in 2008; Charlie was accompanied by Betty Williams, a member of the gang and the then Labour MP for Conwy. See previous posts for the gen on the appalling Betty. Betty announced to the whole lecture theatre that she just wanted to let us all know that the VC’s wife was now very ill and was not expected to live much longer. I and my friends were gobsmacked, although we were well aware that Merfyn had been under attack from the Gwerin for at least the past four years and there was a suspicion that people at the top of New Labour had joined in the Get Merfyn Out campaign; my computer had been stolen by John McTernan’s brother-in-law in 2005 and I was being threatened constantly by the gang. See post ‘Lest We Forget’.
Whatever Betty’s motives were, it was clear that they were unrelated to supporting Nerys and Merfyn. The vicious old cow made that public announcement for no constructive purpose…
When Betty did her town crier bit, Gordon was PM. Charlie Falconer had served as Lord High Chancellor, June 2003-June 07 and Secretary of State for Justice, May 2007-June 2007, Miranda’s Gov’t having changed the constitution, which resulted in the two overlapping roles being held by Falconer . In May 2008, it was announced that Falconer had been appointed as Chairman of the AmicusHorizon Group Limited, a Registered Social Landlord and on 8 July 2008, Falconer joined US law firm Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher as a senior counsel.
Charlie Falconer was educated at the Edinburgh Academy and Trinity College, Glenalmond. He read Law at Queen’s College, Cambridge. As did William Bingley, Dafydd’s mate, who provided armour plating for Dafydd and the gang in William’s capacity as legal Director for MIND, then Chief Exec of the Mental Health Act Commission, then as Chair of an NHS Trust in the north west of England, as the Prof of Mental Health Law and Ethics in the University of Central Lancashire, 2000-04, as well as via his work at Cumbria University… William’s dad was Admiral Sir Alec Bingley, a NATO Commander who was Of Lord Mountbatten and the gay spies in the Admiralty (see post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’) and his mum was Lady Juliet Bingley, a social worker who, after her husband died, became a big player in MIND.
Lady Juliet was friends with Richard Crossman, as well as with Dom Mintoff, the PM of Malta who himself was a member of the Maltese Mafia. Crossman was also a friend of Mintoff. See previous posts. Lady Juliet was a second generation facilitator of the Westminster Paedophile Ring; her dad was Reginald Vick, a surgeon at Bart’s who colluded with organised abuse before Lady Juliet joined the family business. See previous posts for the full story re the Bingleys.
Charlie Falconer is the same age as William Bingley, if they didn’t actually bump into each other at Cambridge, they will have got to know each other somewhere else along the way.
Falconer met Miranda when they were schoolboys in Scotland and then in the 1970s they shared a flat. I have mentioned previously that Miranda was a pupil of the bent barrister George Carman QC, who was not only linked with serious organised crime but who also acted for and was retained by members of the Westminster Paedophile Ring; Cherie worked in Carman’s Chambers until 1988. Carman knew Dafydd and the gang from his days based in Greater Manchester/Cheshire before he relocated to London after successfully defending Jeremy Thorpe in 1979. I knew that Charlie and Miranda had been flatmates but I have only just found out that they were based in Wandsworth. Wandsworth Borough Council were running a massive paedophile ring across south London in collaboration with St George’s Hospital Medical School and Springfield Hospital.
Dafydd’s mate John Tilley went to Battersea and Wandsworth in the mid-1960s, began organising down there and became a Wandsworth Councillor – Tilley was Leader of the Council for a number of years – ready to send kids in care to children’s homes in north Wales when John Allen and Dafydd opened for business in 1969-ish. Business received a wonderful boost when John Tilley served as the Labour MP for Lambeth Central, 1978-83. The PC and street cred of Dafydd’s gang reached a peak when Tilley became a good mate of Lord Scarman, who was often photographed with black children on his knee, but who somehow missed the serious organised crime linked to a sex abuse gang which by then was running the whole of south London and was networked to gangs across the rest of the UK and into mainland Europe. See post ‘Lord Snooty The Third’.
Dear old Lord Scarman, much loved by ‘The Guardian’, knew that up in north Wales there were two monsters, one who had until very recently been lobotomising away like there was no tomorrow.
What do you mean ‘no I don’t want to shag a horrible old man’?
Anyone for institutional racism on the part of the plods on the beat?
The institutional racism won’t have helped, but an even bigger problem was the sex trafficking business/ child porn trade/class A drugs distribution taking place which was run by highly paid corrupt professional people, rather than rastamen on street corners.
While Miranda went into politics, Falconer concentrated on his legal career, practising from Fountain Court Chambers in London. Charlie learned at the knees of the best there. Previous tenants of Fountain Court are a roll call of bent judges and senior lawyers who protected Dafydd and the gang as well as the wider Westminster Paedophile Ring: Sir Melford Stevenson, Lord Scarman, Thomas Bingham and Sir Henry Brooke. See previous posts. Lord Peter Goldsmith was also of Fountain Court and was the Attorney General when the gang mounted a prosecution against me for ‘threatening to kill’ Alun Davies, an NHS manager, in 2002, based entirely on the perjury of some eight NHS staff. The case circulated around the Courts for nearly two years and collapsed on the first day of the trial. Meanwhile I lost my house and my job. There was no investigation into the industrial scale perjury or into the conduct of the corrupt judge Huw Daniel, a friend of Dafydd’s, who presided over the mess and issued a legally invalid restraining order against me into the bargain. See previous posts…
Fountain Court became established as pre-eminent under the leadership of Sir Melford Stevenson in the 1950s and its status as part of the ‘Magic Circle’ was further cemented in the 1960s and 1970s by some of the crooks named above.
Some five years ago, when I was sitting in the Heddfan Unit, Wrexham Maelor Hospital, wrongfully detained after being threatened at gunpoint, it was reported in the media that Edwina Hart and Theo Huckle QC, two sheepshaggers from Wales, had been received and wined and dined by the Magic Circle. Theo was the Counsel General for Wales, 2011-16, who saw every one of the 10,000 documents now in my possession, which detail serious criminality and conspiracy on the part of every agency with which I had ever had contact over 30 years re health and social care and related litigation, yet managed to maintain that there was no evidence of clinical negligence or harm to me as a result. After doing the necessary as Counsel General for Wales ie. blowing my case out of the water, Theo joined Doughty Street Chambers. See post ‘Theo Huckle QC’.
Doughty Street Cambers undertakes criminal justice, public law, immigration, employment, human rights and civil liberties work. Doughty Street Chambers was set up in 1990 by Geoffrey Robertson QC (see previous posts), who is joint head of Doughty Street, along with Edward Fitzgerald. Other notable members include Louis Blom-Cooper QC, who concealed Dafydd and the gang’s crimes for years, particularly in his role as Chair of the Mental Health Act Commission when William Bingley was Chief Exec and St Helena Kennedy, who was a friend of and worked with Professor Nigel Eastman, one of the St George’s forensic psychiatrists who was colluding with Dafydd et al and those facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See previous posts…
Keir Starmer (see previous posts eg. ‘A Future Leader Of The Labour Party’) also works at Doughty Street, as does George Clooney’s wife Amal. Amal is not the only Doughty Street barrister to have close links with the film world. Ben Silverstone is also based there.
Silverstone was born in Camden and studied English at Trinity College, Cambridge and Law at the LSE. Ben starred in ‘Get Real’ and ‘Lolita’; he appeared on the cover of ‘Gay Times’ in May 1999. His most recent film project was Jump! (2007) starring Patrick Swayze and Martine McCutcheon.
Doughty Street, which exists for the Benefit of the Oppressed:
Many of the tenants of Doughty Street are also members of the Mansfield Community and Ben has also passed through Cherie’s establishment Matrix.
In 1993, I wrote to Michael Mansfield informing him of the abuses of social workers employed by Gwynedd Social Services. I received a one line reply. The North Wales Police were at the time winding up their investigation into child abuse in north Wales, which resulted in them stating that there was no evidence of a paedophile ring operating in the region. Michael Mansfield lived in Wandsworth. See previous posts for info on Mike eg. ‘Workers’ Play Time’.
Cherie grew up in Crosby, Liverpool, an area with a high number of Roman Catholics as well as many professional people who worked with Dafydd’s network. In the 1990s, as part of an investigation into organised abuse in the north west of England, a number of staff of institutions run by Liverpool Catholic Social Services were jailed. Some of them had links to north Wales and Cheshire. See previous posts.
The Gang Of Four targeted Crosby as a winnable seat for the SDP after they based their electoral strategy on their knowledge of the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Shirl held the seat, 1981-83. See post ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’
Shirl’s opportunity arose as the result of the death of the sitting Tory MP Sir Rodney Graham Page (30 June 1911 – 1 October 1981). Graham Page was educated at Magdalen College, Oxford and London University and later became a solicitor. He was a Privy Council appeal agent and a company and building society Director. Page contested Islington North in 1950 and 1951 was first elected MP for Crosby in 1953. He Chaired the Select Committee on Statutory Instruments, 1964-66. Page served in the Gov’t of Ted Heath, was appointed a Privy Counsellor in 1972 and was a Minister of State at the Secretary of State for the Department of Local Government and Development until 1974. He took a particular interest in Gov’t administration and played a significant part in the reorganisation of local government and water authorities in the early 1970s.
Page was the Chairman of the Pedestrians Association and a Governor of Tommy’s. Dr Death trained and worked at Tommy’s and knew Dafydd as well as many other Top Docs who facilitated the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Death was the MP who used his private member’s bill to ensure that the Children Act 1975 ended up on the statute books which resulted in so many kids being sent to children’s homes in north Wales as well as into the hands of linked gangs. Dr Death’s kind offer was the last stage in a process that was begun and stage managed by George Thomas’s friend Leo Abse. Abse, along with his two Top Doctor brothers and many of his friends and relations, was part of the Westminster Paedophile Ring (see post ‘O Jones, O Jones’). Abse was given full support in the rewriting of legislation with regard to children in care from James Callaghan when Callaghan was Home Secretary. See post ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’.
Graham Page was MP for Crosby, 1953-81, years of Peak Lobotomy for Gwynne at the North Wales Hospital. Page will have known about it, the corrupt professionals of Liverpool provided numerous umbrellas. Many members of the gang, including Dafydd and Lucille, were graduates of Liverpool University. North Wales heaved with Top Docs and lawyers who trained at Liverpool and they tended to be the ones in the senior positions.
Shirl lost Crosby in 1983 to Sir George Malcolm Thornton (born 3 April 1939), known as Malcolm Thornton. He was educated at Wallasey Grammar School and later attended Liverpool Nautical College. Thornton was first elected to Parliament in 1979 for the marginal seat of Liverpool Garston, gaining it from Labour’s Eddie Loyden. In the early 1980s, all seats were re-organised with the new boundaries set to come in at the next election. Liverpool Garston would lean strongly towards Labour, so Thornton sought a safer seat in Crosby. Shirl however bagged Crosby in 1981, but Thornton won it in 1983. Both Shirl and Thornton colluded with Dafydd’s network of corrupt professionals. In 1983, Eddie Loyden won a redrawn Garston for Labour.
By 1997, the Tories were deeply unpopular and Thornton lost Crosby, by a wide margin, to Labour’s Claire Curtis-Tansley (later known as Claire Curtis-Thomas). Cherie’s autobiography discussed her delight at Labour bagging the seat from the Tories.
However did Labour manage that then Cherie?
I was fortunate to still be a free woman and thus able to watch the May 1997 General Election on TV after being acquitted earlier that year after Dafydd’s gang made that attempt at securing a conviction against me and banging me up on the basis of the perjury of the Angel Bridget Lloyd. See previous posts.
Congratulations to Ms Curtis-Thomas!
In 2007, Sir Malcolm Thornton became a Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of the Board of Governors for Liverpool John Moores University. John Hamilton, Leader of Liverpool City Council, 1976-78 and then again during its years of Militant domination and scrapping with the Windbag, 1983-86 – although it was Deputy Leader Derek Hatton who did the scrapping (see previous posts) – was a Governor of Liverpool John Moores when it was Liverpool Poly. John Hamilton was a Bachelor and a schoolteacher who was enthusiastic about matters education as a local politician. Hamilton was a Quaker, like Gethin Evans, Luculle Hugh’s henchman in Gwynedd Social Services and Dr Paul Nickson of Bethesda Surgery, who ignored the crimes of Dafydd’s gang; Nickson later left Bethesda and went to work as a Top Doc in Liverpool. John Hamilton was nearly killed when his house went up in flames the month before the Waterhouse Report was published so if Hamilton ever felt like going on TV and telling the world that there were rather more people abusing kids from north Wales children’s homes than a few bottom feeding social workers and teachers, those third degree burns probably persuaded him otherwise.
Ronnie Waterhouse touched Degsy Hatton’s life. In early 1993, Degsy and two fellow Liverpool City Councillors stood trial for conspiracy in relation to their role as Councillors. Ronnie Waterhouse presided over the trial, which was held at Mold in north Wales, although Degsy and his co-defendants didn’t live at Mold and the alleged offences took place in Liverpool. After receiving a bit of helpful intervention from Ronnie, in March 1993, they were all acquitted. The trial was part of a much part of a far bigger police investigation into civic corruption in Liverpool, Operation Cheetah, which cost many millions and included investigations in the US, Ireland and Spain. Degsy and his barrister demanded that Cheetah be wound up after the acquittal of the Dafydd Three at Mold; it continued but I’m not sure how successful it was.
Malcolm Thornton served as a Merseyside Councillor before he was elected as an MP. He was a Wirral Metropolitan Borough Councillor, April 1973-May 1979 and Leader of Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council, 1974-77.
Lord David Hunt of Welsh Office Corruption served as the Tory MP for the Wirral and then Wirral West, 1976-97. Hunt was the son of RNVR officer Alan Hunt who was Of Mountbatten, Bingley etc and David Hunt grew up in Glyn Ceiriog, a valley in Denbighshire. Hunt went to school at Liverpool College, then studied Law at Bristol University, at the same time as Dafydd’s partner in crime Dr D.G.E. Wood trained at Bristol Medical School. Hunt was a member of the Young Conservatives in the 1960s, so he will have known Dafydd’s gang members Peter Walker and Beata Brookes. Hunt has been a senior lawyer in the international legal firm DAC Beachcroft since 1996. DAC Beachcroft handle work for the MDU, who acted for Dafydd and Tony and Sadie Francis on every occasion when they resorted to litigation against me. The MDU knew that Dafydd and the Drs Francis perjured themselves on each occasion and they also knew that my allegations of criminal conduct were supported by documentary evidence. Lord David Hunt was appointed Chair of the Press Complaints Commission in 2011, by which time the Digger had accessed my hacked e mails and various documents which disappeared from my property on three separate occasions.
See my post ‘He Knows Where The Bodies Are Buried’ for details of more Liverpool City Councillors who were in cahoots with Dafydd and the gang, including the Liberal Leader of the City Council, Sir Trevor Jones, from north Wales, who preceded John Hamilton’s 1980s stint as Leader. Jones was the key link between north Wales and Liverpool City Council.
|Cherie served as Chancellor of Liverpool John Moores University, 1999-2006.|
Cherie’s dad was the Scouse Git Anthony Booth, the Liverpudlian actor of the Merseybeat generation of whom so many used the services of Dafydd’s gang.
The Beatles at the Normal College Bangor in Aug 1967:
While the Beatles were visiting Bangor to spend time with their Guru, their manager Brian Epstein was found dead, although he was due to join them in Bangor. Epstein was gay, used rent boys and died as a result of barbiturates prescribed by a Top Doctor, the circumstances of which were worrying. See post ‘An Appalling Vista’. Dafydd’s gang ran and staffed the Normal College. See eg. ‘Thought For The Day’.
Cilla was a songbird from Liverpool and a mate of the Beatles:
In later life, Cilla was a personal friend of Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain.
Eddie Loyden (3 May 1923 – 27 April 2003) was the Labour MP for Liverpool Garston, Feb 1974-1979. However, favourable boundary changes allowed Loyden to be re-elected in 1983 and he remained MP for Liverpool Garston until he retired in 1997.
Loyden was born in 1923 into a large, working-class family living off Vauxhall Road, Liverpool. At the age of fifteen Loyden gained employment as a deck boy on a coaster, leaving his bike at the docks. His mother knew nothing of this until she received a telegram from his new employer. Loyden spent WW II in the Merchant Navy and saw many friends perish at sea. After the war, Eddie worked for the Mersey Dock and Harbour Board and became chairman of his branch of the Powers Workers Union, later part of the TGWU.
Jack Jones, General Secretary of the TGWU, 1968-78, was from Garston, Liverpool and like Richard Crossman and Lady Juliet Bingley, was a friend of Dom Mintoff of the Maltese Mafia. See post ‘The Naked Civil Servants’ for info re Jack Jones, including the allegations that he was a Soviet double agent working for the British security services.
Rhodri Morgan was a member of the TGWU and an MP sponsored by the TGWU.
Eddie Loyden joined the Labour Party and was elected to Liverpool City Council in 1960. He was involved in the seamen’s strike of 1966, despite Harold Wilson’s denigration of the strikers as a “tightly knit group of politically motivated men”. In 1974 Loyden was elected MP for the Garston area of Liverpool, a former traditional Tory seat. His majority was small, and he lost the seat to Malcolm Thornton in 1979 and went on to be elected as City Councillor, going on to become Deputy Leader of Liverpool City Council. In 1983 he was re-elected to Parliament, and also in 1987 with a vastly increased majority. Loyden retired in 1997 and died in 2003 from Alzheimer’s.
Eddie Loyden will have known about Gwynne and the lobotomies as well.
Cherie’s colleague Ben Silverstone’s father I am fairly sure is Anthony Silverstone, an obstetrician and gynaecologist who was appointed Consultant at UCH/UCL in 1982. Silverstone specialises in gynaecological oncology. He knew Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain and Chamberlain’s wife Professor Jocelyn Chamberlain, who was one of those Top Docs who developed the cervical screening programme. Silverstone knew that Chamberlain and others were facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring, he knew about the medical research fraud that so many of the cancer researchers were perpetrating and he knew that there were not enough lab staff to rung the cervical screening programme and that women were being conned and put at risk.
Anthony Silverstone is listed as practising at the Portland Hospital. The Portland is a real laugh, it is the place where the likes of Posh Spice go to sprog. The Portland is very accommodating; if you are seriously underweight and frail because you have prioritised the catwalk and you can’t deliver normally, the Portland will be on hand with an elective Caesarian. Likewise if you just don’t fancy doing the vaginal delivery bit, the scalpel will be on hand. If you do want to deliver vaginally, they’ll be on for doing pelvic floor surgery AND a designer vagina while they’re down there, no problem. I have such a low opinion of Top Docs’ honesty that I do have huge sympathy with patients who decide what they want and put their order in as it were; my concern is that not only are not enough Top Docs honest enough to allow their patients to make an informed sensible choice, but the sort of thing that Posh et al order makes mainstream women feel very bad about themselves. Posh’s requirements are not framed as the excesses of a mad narcissist, they are constructed as wise choices which should be followed by all sensible women, a la Angelina Jolie’s decision to have so many healthy organs surgically removed. See previous post. Anthony and his colleagues know how crazy it all is but they’re keeping schtum.
The food at the Portland is better than many of the poshest hotels in London and there’s a nursery for the mothers who aren’t that keen on doing the having their baby with them bit while they wait for the nanny to begin work.
I’m fairly sure that it was the Portland which a few years ago was the centre of a scandal involving the death of a mother as a result of utterly inadequate care. The Posh Spices of the world don’t usually realise that while the Portland has brilliant hotel facilities, it doesn’t invest in its medical facilities to the same degree. If your labour goes seriously wrong and you need the life-saving stuff and intensive care, you’ll be transferred to an NHS hospital anyway…
Anthony Silverstone can also be found at King Edward VII Hospital, the Patron of which is Lilibet and the President, HRH the Duke of Kent. The Chairman of the King Edward VII Hospital was and might still be Lord Simon Glenarthur. Simon was also a Director of the MDU for many of the years that they so ably assisted Top Doctors involved with serious organised crime to prosecute me. Simon Glenarthur was a Health Minister who was at the Dept of Health with Ken Clarke. It was Simon who followed Thatch’s orders to buy blood products from the US, although the Gov’t was warned by the Top Docs that the products were infected and would infect NHS patients if they were used. Thatch and Glenarthur ploughed ahead regardless and thousands of NHS patients were infected with Hep and HIV, many of whom have now died. The Top Docs warned the Gov’t but not NHS patients. They were careful to ensure that they or their nearest and dearest did not receive the infected products themselves. See previous posts.
I was told recently that I was knowingly treated with infected blood products at the C&A Hospital in Bangor 1984, without my knowledge. It didn’t entirely surprise me, I knew that I had been lied to by the Student Health Centre about not being given a transfusion when I was out cold under anaesthetic. The Top Docs must really hate me after I have survived so many of their murder attempts.
I wonder if Simon Glenarthur was on a Personal Mission to seek out and destroy, having been ordered to do so by Thatch and Ken Clarke?
Meet Mr Silverstone: ‘Now don’t you worry my dear, we’ll look after you’.
I’ll just have a look at your notes:
The notes of one of Ben Silverstone’s colleagues make a stack a mile high:
Jack Straw succeeded Charlie Falconer as Secretary of State for Justice and Lord High Chancellor and was in that role when Betty and Charlie visited Bangor. Jack has featured many times on this blog, especially in my post ‘Last Man Standing’. Jack was a member of Islington Borough Council when the paedophile ring was busy in the children’s homes run by Islington Council. Before he succeeded Babs Castle as the MP for Blackburn, Jack served as an adviser to Babs and assisted her in concealing the abuse and even deaths of children and vulnerable people in the care of the NHS and Social Services. Jack was cluttering up the DHSS when Dafydd’s pals, including Lord David Ennals, were working as advisers and Ministers there. Jack knew about Dafydd’s gang and the lobotomies that Gwynne carried out on people who dared complain. Jack is a barrister and a member of Inner Temple, along with Jeremy Thorpe and the Havers Family Of Covering Up Serious Sex Offenders In High Places. Jack’s wife was a civil servant who ended up as a mandarin in the Dept of Health.
Keith Vaz worked as a solicitor for Islington Council and then he popped up to Leicester, where another paedophile ring linked to Dafydd’s gang was in operation, where Mr Vaz was employed in a law centre funded by Leicester City Council, who were colluding with the ring. Keith soon decided that it was an MP’s life for him, after Brown had moved to Leicester to undertake his PhD. In June 1987, Keith became Brown’s constituency MP and mine as well, because I’d moved in with Brown the month previously. It was in 1987 that Dafydd and the gang conjured up their Cunning Plan to frame and imprison me, which backfired when no enough lies were told by not enough people, although the Home Office and the Mental Health Act Commission, with Louis Blom-Cooper as Chair and William Bingley as Chief Executive, were on board with the plan. See eg. ‘Hey, Hey, DAJ, How Many Kids Did You Kill Today?’.
When I worked at Bangor University, I attended a public lecture given by Craig Murray, the British Ambassador to Uzbekistan, 2002-04, Craig having been invited by one of the student societies at Bangor. Craig became well-known after he refused to keep quiet about human rights abuses in Uzbekistan; they were very serious abuses as well, opponents of the regime were being boiled alive and there was a system of slavery to ensure that the cotton plantations were manned. Craig complained to the Foreign Office that information given to the CIA was unreliable because it had been obtained by torture. Craig was withdrawn as the Ambassador and interrogated by British officials after he was denounced as being ‘overly focused on human rights’ and packed off to a mental health unit in London. It was Foreign Secretary Jack Straw who was behind the ending of Craig’s career as a diplomat. Craig maintained that New Labour were ignoring the dreadful regime of Islam Karimov, because the British Gov’t were seeking to get their paws on the huge natural gas reserves of Uzbekistan and other countries in that region.
My post ‘The Naked Civil Servants’ mentioned that former Gwynedd Health Authority CEO Huw Thomas worked for the Aga Khan Foundation in Tajikistan, 1999-2004. Tajikistan borders Uzbekistan as well as Afghanistan and it too has natural gas and coal reserves.
The North Wales Hospital Denbigh was managed by Clwyd Health Authority but Huw Thomas had an agreement that Gwynedd patients would be sent there:
Opium poppies are big business in Afghanistan now:
The UN are very worried about Afghanistan driving the heroin market in the west. The UN which hosted Trumpers and so many other people who have colluded with Dafydd’s gang…
When Huw Thomas was busy with his charidee work just down the dirt track from all those lovely poppies, his old buddies were busy trying to frame me and have me imprisoned for threatening to kill Alun Davies. Alun Davies worked as an NHS manager under Huw Thomas for the entire duration of Huw’s time as Chief Exec of Gwynedd Health Authority. Documents in my possession show that the crooked Gwynedd County Council lawyer Ron Evans advised Davies with regard to methods of constructing me as a danger to Dafydd’s life and limb. Ron also had access to Health Authority documentation concerning me, to which he had no right. Ron did some of the forging of documents as well as Davies, Ron’s forgeries being of much higher quality.
A Parliamentary Report detailing the Work of the Welsh Affairs Committee 2008-09 informed us that as well as other matters, they dealt with:
‘The provision of cross-border health services for Wales: The Committee published an interim Report into the provision of cross-border health services in July 2008, and our final Report in March 2009. We decided to publish an interim Report on our findings in this inquiry in order to contribute to discussions in several key areas that were taking place at that time; including a proposed protocol between the Department of Health and the Welsh Assembly Government, the proposed restructuring of the NHS in Wales, and Mr James Steers’s [Professor Steers is an Edinburgh-based neurosurgeon] review of neurosciences services for Welsh patients. That the Government delayed responding to our interim Report for 6 months is unacceptable.’
It was Gordon’s Gov’t who delayed responding to the interim report. The Health Minister at the time was Alan Johnson.
‘Legal Services Commission Cardiff Office. In spring 2009, we held an urgent inquiry into the proposed restructuring of the Legal Services Commission, an agency of the Ministry of Justice which is responsible for the provision of legal aid in England and Wales. The proposed changes included a significant reduction in the operations of the Commission’s Cardiff office, the only one of its offices located in Wales, with functions being transferred to processing centres in England.
Our evidence showed that the Legal Services Commission had failed to include the Wales Office in any form of consultation regarding the proposed changes to its Cardiff office. The extent of consultation with the Welsh Assembly Government and other stakeholders prior to the announcement of the restructuring was also extremely limited. During his appearance before the Committee, Lord Bach, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Ministry of Justice, acknowledged that there had been insufficient consultation about the potential impact of the proposed changes on legal aid in Wales and said that both the Commission and the Ministry would “learn a lesson” from the experience.
We published our Report on 1 May, recommending that no change to the functions of the Cardiff office should be implemented until thorough and genuine consultation has taken place to determine its likely impact on levels of service. We were particularly concerned that the proposed changes were put forward in the context of continuing legal divergence post devolution. The Commission needs adequate expertise for interpreting Welsh legislation and must continue to provide high quality bilingual services. Despite the Commission’s assurances, we were not confident that the quality of Welsh services could be maintained from outside Wales.
The Government’s response to our Report announced that any changes to the Cardiff office would be postponed pending further consultation:
The LSC has postponed the planned removal of processing work from the Cardiff Office from 2009/10 to 2010/11. This will enable sufficient time for them to conduct further discussions with the Wales Office and the Welsh Assembly Government, to fully explain the proposals and ensure that appropriate measures are in place to maintain the quality of service for Welsh clients and providers. Both the Ministry of Justice and the LSC accept the Committee’s findings that the level of consultation on the decision to remove processing work from Cardiff was inadequate.
We welcome this outcome. However, it appears that Whitehall guidance on the consultation procedures that must be followed when dealing with devolved areas of the UK has now been misunderstood on a number of occasions. This is why we decided to conduct an in-depth investigation of the protocols relating to the devolution settlement and its observation throughout government in a new inquiry into Wales and Whitehall, which will take place in the 2009-10 session.’
By the time that Charlie Falconer came to give his public lecture on Human Rights at Bangor, he, along with Dame Vera Baird, had cut legal aid substantially. The cuts that had been implemented nearly put the only lawyer in Gwynedd who was representing clients in NHS and Social Services cases out of business. I was one of her clients. She and I attended Charlie’s lecture and we both wanted to ask him what was the point of the Human Rights legislation being expanded in the way of which he boasted when patients and clients who had suffered serious harm at the hands of the NHS and Social Services could not access the legal aid necessary to bring cases at all, yet alone under the Human Rights Act. After Charlie ended his lecture, Betty told us all that Charlie didn’t have time to answer any questions because he had to rush of to another appointment. I found out the next day that Charlie’s appointment had been wine and nibbles with a small group of trusted senior Professors who could be relied upon not to say anything like ‘you endemically corrupt lying bastard who’ll stop at nothing, how dare you turn up here to rub Merfyn’s nose in it’.
The achievement of which Charlie has been most proud over recent years is losing five stone in weight.
Charlie is wearing Stella McCartney this season, but he remains the same amoral sociopath that he was before he became a male model.
Here’s Charlie’s side kick Dame Vera Baird:
Vera grew up in Lancashire and read law at Newcastle Poly, where she was also Vice-President of the Students Union and edited and founded a student newspaper. So Vera, as a student, probably knew about the sex abuse ring in the North East which was directly linked to Dafydd’s gang and sent children and staff to north Wales. Vera was a part-time Parish Council clerk in a parish council in County Durham in the late 1970s when she lived in County Durham. Baird joined the Labour Party in 1971 and later joined the TGWU, now UNITE. She is now also a member of UNISON and of the GMB Trade Unions and a member of the Co-operative Party. All of these unions colluded organised abuse, including in north Wales and defended members involved in abuse. See post ‘A Very COHSE Relationship With Some Very Nasty People’.
Vera was called to the Bar at Gray’s Inn in 1975; Dafydd’s big bodyguard Sir William Mars-Jones was a member of Gray’s Inn. She first practised in the North East, setting up Collingwood Chambers in Newcastle-upon-Tyne and became Head of Chambers.
Vera acted for CND and anti-apartheid protesters. Some leaders of CND knew about Dafydd and Gwynne because they lived near Bertrand Russell at Cwm Croesor. See posts ‘A Message Of Peace At Christmas’ and ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’. David’s mate Lord David Ennals was Chairman of the Anti-Apartheid Movement, 1960-64; David Steel, who concealed the Westminster Paedophile Ring as well as Dafydd and the gang’s criminality (see post ‘Man Of Steel’) was Chairman of the Anti-Apartheid Movement, 1966-70. Mr Thrope was an enthusiastic supporter of the AAM, as was Dafydd’s pal Professor Mervyn Susser. See previous posts.
Vera represented striking miners in 1984-85 and became a member of the Mansfield Community. Like Michael Mansfield, Vera represented rioting prisoners in Risley in 1989 but not the victims of Dafydd who were being beaten up and found dead on the ‘hospital wing’. Not a word passed Radical Vera’s lips. Or about the kids in care being visited by that pox doctor in Risley. See post ‘Include Me Out’. Vera was involved in the Emma Humphreys case, as was St Helena. They knew exactly what was happening to women at the hands of Dafydd’s gang and the Top Docs but they said nothing, not even when Emma was found dead after being prescribed a totally unacceptable ‘sleeping tablet’. See previous posts…
Vera succeeded Mo Mowlam as the Labour MP for Redcar and served as Solicitor General, 2007-10, left Parliament in 2010 and in 2012 was elected as Police and Crime Commissioner for Northumberland. See post ‘Sisters Are Indeed Doing It For Themselves’ for more info on Vera and her mates and how they have shafted vulnerable women to build their own reputations as Feminist Champs.
The Welsh Affairs Committee, 2008-09, consisted of a list of paedophiles’ friends. Readers will recognise their names from previous posts:
Dr Hywel Francis MP (Labour, Aberavon) (Chairman)
Mr David T.C. Davies MP (Conservative, Monmouth)
Ms Nia Griffith MP (Labour, Llanelli)
Mrs Siân C. James MP (Labour, Swansea East)
Mr David Jones MP (Conservative, Clwyd West)
Mr Martyn Jones MP (Labour, Clwyd South)
Rt Hon Alun Michael MP (Labour and Co-operative, Cardiff South and Penarth)
Mr Albert Owen MP (Labour, Ynys Môn)
Mr Mark Pritchard MP (Conservative, The Wrekin)
Mr Mark Williams MP (Liberal Democrat, Ceredigion)
Mr Hywel Williams MP (Plaid Cymru, Caernarfon)
In autumn 2007 the Welsh Gov’t Minister for Health and Social Services, Edwina Hart, commissioned an Independent review of adult neurosciences led by James Steers. This External Expert Review Group published its first stage report dealing with North Wales in July 2008 with all Wales recommendations and source documents following in September 2008. The Minister has asked the North Wales Regional Director for the Department for Health and Social Services to co-ordinate the development of a costed implementation plan for the recommendations.
The North Wales Neuroscience Implementation Group, NWNIG (The Group) is established by and chaired by the Regional Director. The Group will be an organisational and professional association of statutory and non statutory partners with the aim of planning for, co-ordinating and delivering a costed implementation plan (with timescales) for the consideration of the Minister. The Group’s work will be reported to the Minister, Chief Executive of the NHS in Wales and the North Wales Health Planning Forum through the Regional Director.
Membership of the Group will consist of:
Welsh Assembly Government North Wales Regional Office
North Wales Community Health Councils
North Wales NHS Trusts
North Wales Local Health Boards
North Wales Ambulance Service
The Walton Centre
Wales Neurological Alliance
North Wales Public Health Service
Health Commission Wales
Leonard Cheshire Disability
North Wales Local Government
Every one of the above bodies was/is under the control of Dafydd’s gang. They were all on board to force Merfyn out of his job as VC and indeed out of public life. See posts ‘Lest We Forget’ and ‘The Point Is To Change It’. Nerys died in the ‘care’ of the Walton Centre and the Wales Neurological Alliance were Of The Walton Centre.
A few observations. Because Nerys was seriously ill and then died, Merfyn was given compassionate leave from his job. That allowed Professor Fergus Lowe, the Deputy VC, to wreak havoc in the University and openly tell the gwerin that they could forget about Merfyn, he was finished, it was Fungus who was in charge now. Fungus was not Of Dafydd; previous posts have explained how Fungus built his empire by overthrowing Dafydd’s influence in the School of Psychology in the late 1980s and replaced it with his own equally toxic influence. Fungus bagged huge streams of research funding by blackmailing everyone who had colluded with, and concealed the crimes of, Dafydd and the gang. See eg. ‘Feet In Chains’.
Fungus was not a clinical psychologist himself, but he ran the School of Psychology which trained the clin psychs in north Wales and as Fungus expanded the School, he particularly built up the clinical side. I presumed that was because it is where the funding and the status is these days and because there were world famous Top Docs and other practitioners who concealed the paedophile ring so Fungus could bleed some very influential people dry. I have recently been told that Fungus went all out for clinical because he knew that I was the Bangor grad who had been sacrificed to save everyone’s bacon in the late 1980s and because I was a medical researcher, Fungus gripped the medical world by the knackers as a result of that as well. Top Doctors have a lot more power and influence than behavioural psychologists, which was what Fungus was.
Fungus headhunted a lot of high profile academics from the US when he built up the School of Psychology; the Westminster Paedophile Ring had an international network, including in the US, as described in previous posts. Nerys’s own former husband, Orlando Patterson, is a sociologist at Harvard who completed his PhD at the LSE in the mid-1960s, when the whole institution was dominated by Richard Crossman’s friends who were facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring eg. Brian Abel-Smith and Richard Titmuss. See previous posts. A number of Fungus’s catches were Top Doctors ie. neurologists.
In 2000, I developed screaming migraines out of the blue. I self-diagnosed cluster headaches, a serious form of migraine that used to be known as suicide headaches because people would kill themselves as a result of the pain. Cluster headaches are notorious and textbooks reassure everyone that of course patients with cluster headaches are fast-tracked through the system because they still kill themselves even these days if they don’t get the right treatment. I repeatedly consulted the GP and the mental health professionals with whom I was just about still involved. I told them that I was fairly sure that I had cluster headaches. It was just one ridiculous fob off after another. Various irrelevant diagnoses. Then ‘If you had cluster headaches you’d be in the corner screaming in agony’. Er, I have been, for three days, but in the house, because I couldn’t get out let alone in the car to come here’. The saga continued…
On one occasion I was near a hospital when I had a cluster headache. I went to casualty, was sat under a bright light for four hours, insulted by an Angel, refused treatment and then discharged at 3 am. I found out that someone had previously written on my medical records that I was a drug addict feigning pain relief to access opiates. I have never taken or even requested opiates. Neurology textbooks warn that people with cluster headaches are often mistaken for addicts feigning serious pain in order to obtain opiates. The risk of that will increase if someone writes that on one’s records.
Years before that accusation I know that the NW Wales NHS Trust knew that I was experiencing cluster headaches, as did one of the US neurologists whom Fungus had headhunted. I have an e mail acknowledging it. Before I gave up entirely with the mental health services, I was seeing a Top Doc called Richard Tranter, who emigrated to New Zealand with great haste in 2011, when Operation Pallial was announced. See previous posts. Richard was one of the Top Docs who held a senior position in the North Wales Clinical School, which overlapped with the School of Psychology, some staff holding dual roles. Richard acknowledged that I had cluster headaches and told me to write to one of his friends in the School of Psychology, an American neurologist whom Fungus had paid a fortune to go to Bangor and had also created an admin job for his wife Betsy, to make a really attractive package. This man wrote me a cheery e mail, telling me that he soon hoped that I could wave good-bye to cluster headache hell and the man to whom I should ask to be referred was Dr Martyn Bracewell.
Dr Bracewell was a neurologist who worked for the NW Wales NHS Trust. The NW Wales NHS Trust, who, as described in previous posts, flatly refused me any NHS care, unlawfully. Edwina Hart told me that she could do nothing about this and she also refused to fund a private package of care. The lawyer who was acting for me in an attempt to overcome these problems couldn’t continue because Lord Charlie and Dame Vera had withdrawn legal aid for my case.
My mates looked after me, as ever. The cluster headaches faded out some three years ago. I have recently found out that when I was 20, I sustained spinal damage and Dr D.G.E. Wood, the people trafficker who was a member of Dafydd’s gang, knew from the X rays that I would probably be clobbered with cluster headaches when I was older. No-one bothered to warn me and when it happened I was unlawfully refused all treatment. Edwina Hart knew this, as did Rhodri Morgan. A lot of other people did as well, including whoever read my e mails when John McTernan’s brother-in-law and others were unlawfully accessing and hacking into my computer, as explained in previous posts. I have been told that the Dirty Digger’s people got hold of the e mails, as did Uncle Harry’s nephew.
I read a few of the e mails again today. E mails to NHS staff, lawyers and Welsh Gov’t Ministers, explaining about the cluster headaches, that I wasn’t able to get treatment, that I had been threatened and assaulted by NHS staff, as had witnesses to what was going on.. There are also e mails from other people telling me about their own appalling treatment at the hands of the NHS; threatening e mails to me from corrupt police officers; reports of patient deaths and complaints; e mails to the GMC from me that weren’t even acknowledged… Hundreds and hundreds of e mails with extensive details of serious organised crime in the north Wales NHS, facilitated by politicians and assisted by corrupt police officers…
Some of those e mails were from a friend who in the 1970s withdrew from a social work course after blowing the whistle on the neglect of clients by Haringey Council. He then worked as a youth worker in Islington; he knew Margaret Hodge and Jeremy Corbyn and he knew that kids in care were being abused. He also witnessed what had happened to me. For the last few years he has been unable to access any NHS treatment, for either mental health or physical problems. He is now in his mid-60s and his health is deteriorating. Like me, no matter what happened, they just wouldn’t treat him, even when he sustained a head injury. In 2005, a member of staff at Bangor University, Dr Dee Gray aka Dee Jones, a former Angel from Liverpool who then worked for Public Health Wales and now runs an Executive Coaching Agency and flogs her ‘expertise’ to the NHS (see post ‘Little Shop Of Horrors’) admitted to me that there was a conspiracy on the part of the NHS to refuse to treat this man, no matter how life-threatening his condition.
It will be because he blew the whistle on Islington and Haringey…
Nerys died at the hands of exactly the same network of people who were doing all that they could to ensure that I didn’t live either and are doing their best to polish off the man who saw the action in north London back in the 1970s.
Martyn Bracewell is listed as a Clinical Senior Lecturer at the School of Psychology at Bangor University. He is also listed as a neurological consultant at the Walton Centre. As Thatch would have said ‘Remember the name, Martyn Bracewell’. We all did remember the name William Hague, but not for the reasons that Thatch thought that we should.
It’s OK Martyn, I’ll go without!! I just had years of agony, Nerys is dead. Would you like to tell us exactly which of your colleagues at the Walton Centre were responsible for Nerys’s death?
I think that I’ll ask Brown to train in abdominal surgery, just in case. He has done absolutely everything else for me that these worthless fuckers were paid so handsomely by the Gov’t to do, if ever I need my appendix whipping out, Brown can do that as well.
I must remember to ask Brown to ensure that when I do die, no member of the Royal Family tries to crowd me out of the graveyard.
Fungus had another link in the School of Psychology to the Mr Bigs of the Westminster Paedophile Ring in the London Medical Schools; the clinical psychologist Professor Richard Bentall who trained and worked with Dafydd and the gang is the son of the late Professor Hugh Bentall, the cardiac surgeon at Hammersmith Hospital. Hugh Bentall was involved in a major research fraud, he was given his Chair after he made a substantial financial donation to Hammersmith Hospital and his secretary doubled up as his mistress; he secured her a place to do a degree and a PhD in anatomy and then a lecturing job at Hammersmith. See post ‘Interesting Facts’. Richard Bentall’s ex-wife was a UCNW Plant Biology graduate who was the daughter of Eifion Jones, the Dean of Science at UCNW when the institution was a vehicle for the trafficking gang. See previous posts for more info on Richard Bentall.
My e mails that were hacked included e mails written by Richard Bentall accidentally CC’d to someone known to me which detailed complaints against junior lecturers of sexual harassment from psychology students and an admission from Bentall that it had become impossible to recruit research participants for mental health research anywhere in north Wales. I know why; it was because the mental health services were so abusive that no-one would go near them. So perhaps Richard can explain how he and his colleagues continued publishing work stating that big research studies had been carried out by Bangor University, involving hundreds of people from north Wales?
Whoever read my hacked e mails will also have read e mails concerning Dr Dawn Wimpory, a clinical psychologist based in the School of Psychology who had lied and misrepresented herself. Wimpory befriended a suicidal patient who had been refused treatment by the mental health services and then did all that she could to stop him complaining; Wimpory was using some of those who had neglected him as references and had published with some of them. The e mails also contained details regarding Wimpory befriending the patient’s ex-wife and offering to ‘help’, just as Wimpory knew that I was on my way over to photograph the terrible state of the patient’s house who had not been able to look after himself; Wimpory’s help consisted of removing all the evidence demonstrating that the patient was living in dreadful conditions which were a risk to his safety. Wimpory also made telephone calls to Angels in an attempt to extract confidential information about this patient without his consent or knowledge.
I made a formal complaint about Wimpory’s misconduct to Health Inspectorate Wales. At the time the CEO of HIW was Dr Peter Higson. My e mails were not acknowledged. Wimpory knew Peter Higson and had previously worked with him. Weeks later Peter Higson was appointed as Chairman of the Betsi Health Board after Merfyn was forced to resign, as a result of a critical report about Merfyn’s management of the Board written by er Peter Higson. Wimpory told a third party that she was delighted that Higson was back in north Wales – Higson had previously been a clinical psychologist and then the general manager of the North Wales Hospital – and that it was good news for the School of Psychology.
The hacked e mails also contained evidence of criminal conduct on the part of named probation officers in north Wales, evidence of Anglesey County Councillors’ involvement in criminality and evidence that one of the senior managers in Anglesey County Council had been caught dogging by the police but was not charged. I wonder why that might have been.
On 3 October 2008, as part of Gordon Brown’s Cabinet reshuffle, it was announced amid some controversy that Mandelson would return to Gov’t in the re-designated post of Business Secretary and would be raised to the peerage. On 13 October 2008 Mandy became Baron Mandelson. On 6 March 2009, environmental protester Leila Dean of ‘Plane Stupid’ threw a cup of green custard in Mandy’s face in protest over his support for a third runway at Heathrow Airport. Leila was cautioned on 9 April 2009 for causing “harassment, alarm or distress”.
I have surpassed Leila for being the subject of the excesses of the British state. In 1993 I had to cough up £60 after Bangor Magistrates found me guilty of causing Jackie Brandt, a Gwynedd social worker and a member of Dafydd’s gang, ‘harassment, alarm or distress’ because I had looked at her in Safeways in Bangor. Brandt made a statement to the police stating that I’d screamed and sworn at her and that she feared that I was going to attack her. She repeated the allegations on oath, admitted under cross-examination that I had in reality only looked at her and then began crying. Brandt also got her own name wrong, having regressed to childhood in front of the magistrates – that was Patient F’s theory anyway – and stated that she was called Jackie Muriel Billings. I was found guilty for looking at her.
Brandt had previously unlawfully detained me under the Mental Health Act in Ysbyty Gwynedd, where I was visited by Dafydd Who Wanted To Talk Sex and when I challenged him he threatened me. Brandt refused to answer all correspondence from me about the matter and Gwynedd Health Authority and Gwynedd Social Services refused to investigate my complaint. After a very long time indeed, the Mental Health Act Commission admitted that the law had not been followed and Brandt hadn’t even completed the necessary paperwork. There was no action against Brandt taken by anyone and after my third letter to Brandt, Gwynedd County Council raised a High Court injunction against me on the basis of the perjury of Brandt and her colleague Keith Fearns – who had never met me, spoken to me or indeed even received a letter of complaint from me and I did not know who he was – maintaining that I was a danger to Brandt as well as to everyone else who shared her office. Within months, Brandt, Fearns and two of their colleagues perjured themselves in Court again, in an attempt to have me imprisoned for breaching the injunction. See post ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’.
Ron Evans, the crooked Gwynedd County Council lawyer and the dad of the civil servant who was to be Mandy’s future right-hand woman, organised the perjury and forged some of the documentation.
Brandt’s husband Andrew threatened me in public on a number of occasions and there was no action taken. One such occasion was in the Lodwig Villa dentist’s waiting room in Bangor, as described in previous posts. There were witnesses to the incident and I reported the matter to the police. I heard no more about it. When that happened, Ron’s daughter was working for Mandy. It was after Nerys had died and the paedophiles’ friends were baying for Merfyn’s blood by then.
In 2004 I was deemed to have caused Alun Davies, the corrupt NHS manager in Gwynedd, ‘harassment, alarm or distress’ by, in 2002, ringing his secretary and telling her that Davies was a fat idiot. I was at the time sectioned, in a locked ward at Hergest Unit and injured as a result of an assault by Angels. Davies made eight or none calls to the police from Jane Hutt’s offices in Cardiff demanding that I be arrested. The police refused, saying that this was ridiculous, so Davies rang again claiming that I’d threatened to kill him and he was terrified. I was arrested, charged with threatening to kill Davies and remained on bail for nearly two years. The charges were withdrawn on the first day of the trial and it was back to the old favourite of causing ‘harassment, alarm or distress’. I received more than 120 hours of community service from the corrupt judge Huw Daniel, Dafydd’s mate. See previous posts.
In a Cabinet reshuffle on 5 June 2009, Mandelson was granted the honorific title of First Secretary of State and appointed Lord President of the Council. It was also announced that the Dept for Innovation, Universities and Skills would be merged into his, giving Mandy the new title of Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills and that he would continue as President of the Board of Trade. Mandy was a member of 35 of the 43 Cabinet committees and subcommittees.
A lot of people were outraged that Gordon had given Mandy so much power when Mandy had not been elected to any of the positions concerned. Ron Evans’s daughter was at his side at the time and the Digger had acquired the contents of my inbox and stacks of my documents.
The 2008-09 Report of the Welsh Affairs Select Committee also mentioned that they had dealt with matters regarding the Olympics. The Minister who was appointed by Gordon Brown with responsibility for the Olympics was Tessa Jowell. Tessa was a children’s social worker for Lambeth, a psychiatric social worker at the Maudsley when Dafydd’s mates ran an abuse ring there, the Chair of the Social Services Committee for Camden, Deputy Director of MIND and the sister-in-law of Dame Barbara Mills, the DPP who concealed so much of the criminality in north Wales. See eg. ‘A Future Leader Of The Labour Party’ and ‘The Mrs Mills Experience’.
Mrs Mills was DPP when Patient F and I were charged in 1996 on the basis of the perjury of the Angel Bridget Lloyd. Tony Francis prepared a Court report BEFORE our trial, recommending that WHEN we were found guilty, F should be put on probation and I should be sent to a secure psychiatric hospital. There was no apology and no investigation when we were cleared in early 1997, days after Ronnie Waterhouse opened his Inquiry. See previous posts. Mrs Mills was a member of Middle Temple, as was Ronnie.
I am talking about Tessa is the past tense, whereas my earlier posts featuring Tessa eg. ‘The London Connection’ and ‘Tower Hamlets, Paul Boateng and Tessa Jowell ‘ discussed her in the present tense. This is because Tessa died a few months ago, as the result of a brain tumour, just like Nerys. During Tessa’s final weeks there was much talk of Inspirational Wimmin and Tessa raising money for bizarre as well as more mainstream cancer research/interventions. She really should not have bothered; the Top Docs finding that they just could do nothing for Tessa a la Nerys confirms my view that toadying to the Top Docs who facilitated the Westminster Paedophile Ring is not a foolproof strategy. It isn’t worth it, they are vile and someone needs to challenge them. See post ‘Baroness Tessa Jowell – A Tribute’.
Previous posts have discussed the Welsh Bloomsbury Set who were part of Sir Clough Williams-Ellis’s and Bertrand Russell’s crowd who lived or had second homes in the Cwm Croesor area of Gwynedd eg. ‘The Village’, ‘The Vermin Club’ and ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’. Eric Hobsbawm had a second home in Croesor and was friendly with Sir Clough and his wife. Hobsbawm worked for the security services.
Merfyn grew up in the village; he knew the second homers and he also knew what Dafydd and Gwynne’s gang were doing to local people. When Merfyn was an undergrad at Sussex University in 1967, he and two of his mates threw red paint over a visiting US official as an anti-Vietnam protest. The VC of Sussex, Lord Asa Briggs, one of Harold Wilson’s corrupt buddies in public life who had worked for the intelligence services during WW II and was a close friend of one of the most senior people in the British security services, was colluding with the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Briggs was holding the fort at the Sussex end of Dafydd’s ring; John Allen owned brothels in Brighton ass well as in London, to which he trafficked kids from north Wales children’s homes. Asa was greatly pissed off over the red paint episode and in 2005, when the paedophiles’ friends were trying to force Merfyn out of his role as VC (see post ‘Lest We Forget’), Briggs’s daughter was interviewed on Radio 4 about his career – although he was still very much alive and in business – and stated that Briggs had never forgiven the students who had thrown the red paint. I didn’t realise at the time, but I presume that this was a Warning To Merfyn. See post ‘Badlands’.
Your father’s criminal mates ran a paedophile ring and murdered witnesses Asa Minor, if I was you I’d fuck off out of public view, never mind going on the BBC to warn Merfyn that Fings Break.
Previous posts have explained that Eric Hobsbawm’s daughter Julia is a friend of Sarah, Gordon Brown’s wife and together they ran the PR agency, Hobsbawm Macaulay Communications.
I have learnt a bit more about Hobsbawm Macaulay from Tom Bower’s biography of Gordon Brown. Sarah Brown previously had her own PR agency, Spirit Design, which in 1992 had produced a logo for the 1000 Club in Westminster, the 1000 Club comprising those who donated £1000k to the Labour Party. It was at that event that Charlie Whelan, Gordon’s spin doctor (see previous posts) introduced himself to Sarah Macaulay. In 1993 Spirit Design was dissolved and thus Sarah embarked on the partnership with Julia Hobsbawm, whom Sarah knew from their time at Camden School for Girls.
Hobsbawm Macaulay Communications did a lot of work for the Labour Party and the trade unions. Although Eric Hobsbawm was a Marxist historian and a lifelong Communist, for some reason he supported the Windbag in the Windbag’s lame attempts at ‘modernising’ the Labour Party. Hobsbawm and the Windbag had nothing in common at all, but they were both concealing the crimes of Gwynne, Dafydd and the gang. The Windbag knew Tony Francis from their student days in Cardiff and of course the Windbag’s wife’s parents were Labour activists on Anglesey, mates with Lord Cledwyn and had concealed Gwynne’s crimes before Dafydd stoked the business of the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Lord Cledwyn was the Labour MP for Anglesey, 1951-79 and Secretary of State for Wales when the child molester George Thomas was his Minister in the Welsh Office. Dafydd was conducting research into ‘incest on Anglesey’ in the early 1960s and Lucille Hughes was Children’s Officer for Anglesey, 1966-69. The gang, the Gwerin and the paedophiles’ friends went back a very long way…
Previous posts eg. ‘Additional Security Measures’ and ‘Lest We Forget’ have detailed some of the many links between the staff of the Dept of Plant Biology at UCNW where I did my first degree and the gang, mostly by dint of staff of the Dept being married to members of the gang. In the General Election of 1983, Angie Gliddon, the wife of Chris Gliddon, one of the lecturers in Plant Biology, had ambitions to stand as the Labour candidate for Anglesey; I have stated in a previous post that she did stand, but I’ve since found out that she wasn’t selected. Angie Gliddon did however serve as an Anglesey Councillor; she explained their appalling conduct by them being ‘sexist men’. Presumably if Angie had admitted that the problem was that they were running a paedophile gang and that the women married to the men were accessories it would have implicated Angie and her friends, so the old chestnut about ‘sexist men’ was pulled out of the fire. Angie’s literature prepared for the selection of the 1983 General Election candidate mentioned that she was a feminist and would campaign for free nursery places for all.
In 1993, one of Hobsbawm Macaulay’s clients was a trade union who asked Hobsbawm Macaulay to organise a reception at the Dorchester for Bill Clinton. Charlie Whelan, who was by then a mate of Sarah’s, arrived at the Dorchester with Gordon, which was when Sarah and Gordon were formally introduced.
Sarah visited Millbank regularly after Feb 1994 and became acquainted with Labour’s inner circle, including John Smith. It was Sarah who arranged the publicity for the Park Lane fundraising dinner at the Park Lane Hotel on 11 May 1994, the eve of John Smith’s death. Previous posts have described how John Smith could not be revived at Bart’s after having a heart attack in his flat at the Barbican. Smith had previously had a near lethal heart attack in Oct 1988. He had experienced chest pains and had been persuaded to attend the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary for a check up. Smith had an ECG and was told by a Top Doc that they didn’t think that it was his heart. Shortly after, he suffered a huge heart attack that left him in intensive care. Smith subsequently changed his lifestyle, took up mountain walking and lost a lot of weight. Then on 12 May 1994, WHOOPS…
Previous posts have explained how I was sitting in the garden of the Hergest Unit when I heard John Smith’s death announced on the radio. I called out to F and the others to tell them and behind me a window flew open and it was Tony Francis, asking for details. When I confirmed that it had been announced that John Smith was definitely dead, Francis disappeared again without finishing the conversation.
I have explained in eg. ‘The Banality Of Evil’ how in the spring of 1994, F and I met with two Mental Health Act Commissioners and told them that serious complaints about Dafydd were not being investigated, including complaints that he was sexually exploiting patients. The Commissioners admitted to us, in front of a nursing officer, that they had heard complaints about Dafydd sexually exploiting patients many times before and that the complaints reached back as far as the 1960s.
Our complaint to the Mental Health Act Commission was never investigated. The Commission did write to Gwynedd Community Health Trust, but the Trust failed to respond appropriately and the Commission did not follow the matter up. What did happen was that immediately after we met with the Commission, Dafydd told the police and the MDU that I had thrown a brick through his glass door at 3 am in the morning. I had done no such thing and there was no evidence that I had. It was quite some time before anyone even told me that I had been accused. It was however recorded by the North Wales Police and the MDU that I had thrown the brick. I have since been told that the brick was planted.
The gang was getting anxious in the summer of 1994. The Jillings Investigation into the abuse of children in the care of Clwyd County Council since 1974 was underway. Matt Arnold, the Head of Bryn Estyn, died from an ‘unspecified blood disease’ on 9 June 1994. On 13 June 1994, the trial of Peter Howarth, Arnold’s long standing friend and colleague at Bryn Estyn, for sexual offences against boys in care in north Wales opened. Pail Wilson was Howarth’s co-defendant. On 8 July 1994 Howarth was found guilty and Wilson was acquitted on all charges. Howarth received a substantial prison sentence and always maintained that he was scapegoated for numerous other high profile offenders. Howarth died in prison shortly after the Waterhouse Inquiry opened, while Ronnie Waterhouse was in Hong Kong on holiday, having suddenly decided to suspend the Inquiry because he needed a break. While in Hong Kong Ronnie bumped into Derry Irvine and they had a natter over a nice meal.
Miranda became the leader of the Labour Party on 21 July 1994. Throughout the late summer of 1994, Dafydd remained in communication with the MDU and at the beginning of Nov 1994, he obtained an ex parte injunction against me from Liverpool High Court. There was no evidence presented to the Court of any offence on my part. Dafydd banged on about the brick and said that it must have been me because he couldn’t think of anyone else who would have done it. He had been told by then that it could not have been me because I was known to have been in Bethesda, miles away from Dafydd’s place on Anglesey when the brick was ‘thrown’. Dafydd’s affidavit detailed an occasion when F had blown a raspberry down the phone at him and another occasion on which F had told him to bend over while F stuck a hand-grenade up Dafydd’s bum and to take a deep breath and wait for the grenade to explode. On the basis of that, I was served with an injunction.
‘The Banality of Evil’ explains how throughout 2005, the Chairman of the Trust entered into discussion with a number of lawyers asking them if there was any more ways in which I could be prosecuted…
Soon after John Smith’s death, Sarah and Gordon were together on a flight from London to Edinburgh. Throughout 1994 and 1995, things progressed and they began some sort of relationship, but by Tom Bower’s account there was much stress and Gordon kept popping back to his previous girlfriend’s place in Islington to spend the night and dropping in on another woman as well. The Labour Party seem to have all been a bit obsessed with Gordon’s love life and they couldn’t cope with him being single and wanting people to keep their noses out of his business or his reluctance to pose around in gents designer wear.
Contrast with this Example of Modern Labour Man:
As well as obsessing about aspects of Gordon that didn’t matter, the Labour Party had to deal with a few things that he was up to that did matter a great deal, such as planting stories in the press to undermine his political opponents. Between May and June 1996, stories appeared in the press which were designed to damage Chris Smith, John Prescott and Robin Cook, as a result of Whelan being deployed to brief against Brown’s enemies. Tom Bower alleges what others have alleged: that Gordon was a bit bonkers and very vindictive, stopping at nothing to deal with people whom he thought might block his path to No 10.
Previous posts have discussed in detail how two friends who supported me when Dafydd’s gang came after me were at Stirling University with Lord Jack McConnell, a friend of Gordon’s. Jack became very powerful in the Scottish Labour Party despite being close friends with someone who was loathed by Gordon; Jack became Scotland’s FM in Nov 2001, the year following the publication of the Waterhouse Report and just two years after being elected as an MSP. My friends were frozen out by their old crowd at Stirling soon after graduation, they found gangsters in pursuit of them, they were forced out of their careers in the media and their newborn died hours after birth as a result of serious clinical negligence. Their baby died in the same year that Lord Jack bagged his seat in the Scottish Parliament, just a few months before Ronnie Waterhouse published his cover-up. A lot of their friends at Stirling were Labour Party activists, as my friends had been; but Lord Jack and Gordon’s needs had to take priority. See eg. ‘The Turn Of The Screw’.
Tom Bower claims that by 1996, Gordon was worried about the revelation that Geoffrey Robinson had paid Julia Hobsbawm and Sarah Macaulay £100,000k to launch their PR agency. Gordon feared that Julia and Sarah might tell a journo and he warned them, personally and through Whelan, to keep it quiet.
As mentioned in previous posts, Geoffrey Robinson was a very, very wealthy businessman who was elected as the Labour MP for Coventry North West in 1976. See previous posts. Dafydd’s partner gang ran Coventry and kids from Coventry were sent to children’s homes in north Wales; Richard Crossman of the Westminster Paedophile Ring was a Coventry MP as well.
Geoffrey Robinson owned the ‘New Statesman’ and in the wake of the Waterhouse Report, the ‘New Statesman’ published Richard Webster’s article discrediting Alison Taylor, ‘Can A Whistle-Blower Be Wrong?’. Alison sued for defamation/libel, representing herself and won. The ‘New Statesman’ later admitted that it published the article after assuming that Alison would not be able to afford to sue them. Richard Webster was the author of ‘The Secret Of Bryn Estyn’ and was someone who simply would not accept that there had been serious abuse of children in north Wales and spent much time and energy telling people this. Webster spent a lot of time in north Wales, gathering info to discredit Alison, but no-one ever found out what his source of income was.
Tom Bower’s book states that New Labour successfully wooed the City thanks to Geoffrey Robinson’s legwork. Gordon was the man who provided the lectures and speeches comparing New Labour to Bill Clinton and explained that they they would champion popular capitalism, stressing that New Labour were pro-business. Tories who converted to New Labour included Martin Taylor, the CEO of Barclays Bank and Alan Sugar, a game show host who is filmed getting out of Rolls Royces and walking into soulless skyscrapers. The grovelling had begun in 1995 and resulted in Howard Davies, the DG of the CBI, inviting Miranda to Davies’s place in Islington. Sir Howard Davies was Director of the LSE, 2003-11; he stepped down over the business of the LSE giving a PhD to Col Gadaffi’s son, after someone else had written it for him.
Ed Miliband’s father Ralph was part of the New Left crowd and knew Eric Hobsbawm, E.P. Thompson and many others in the Croesor/Bertrand Russell network well. Ralph had studied and worked at the LSE with Crossman’s circle. See previous posts. Ralph’s brother-in-law Professor Harry Keen was a Top Doc at Guy’s and knew numerous Top Docs who knew Dafydd and the gang and were concealing or colluding with their criminality. See previous posts.
In 1993, Harriet Harman recruited Uncle Harry’s nephew as her policy researcher and speechwriter. Harriet’s dad John Harman was a Top Doc who knew many of the Top Docs who were facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring and concealing the crimes of Dafydd and the gang. See previous posts. In 1994, when Harriet Harman was moved to a new role by Miranda, Uncle Harry’s nephew stayed on in the Shadow Treasury team and was promoted to work for Gordon, then Shadow Chancellor. In 1995, with encouragement from Gordon, Uncle Harry’s nephew took time out from his job to complete a Masters at the LSE. After Labour’s 1997 landslide victory, Miliband was appointed as a special adviser to Chancellor Gordon, 1997 -2002. Sarah and Gordon got engaged in 1997. The Waterhouse Inquiry opened in Jan 1997.
Not only did Uncle Harry know the Top Docs who were repeatedly perjuring themselves, forging documents and planting evidence in an attempt to have me incarcerated, but Ralph was mates with many of the old New Left academics who were doing all that they could to wreck Brown’s career. See eg. ‘Life In Cold Blood’.
Sarah Brown did her psychology degree at Bristol University at the same time as Sarah Jenkins, the daughter of Sheila Jenkins, a Gwynedd social worker who was a member of the gang and highly abusive to patients. Shelia Jenkins’ husband David held a Chair at Bangor University. Sarah Jenkins knew me because during 1984-85 she shared a house with a girl who had been a student at Bangor with me and was very friendly with one of my house-mates. Sarah Jenkins knew Brown as well. See previous posts.
Keith Thomson, one of the disastrous senior managers in the NHS in Gwynedd, grew up in Gwynedd, but spent time as an NHS manager in Stirling. After Lord Jack McConnell graduated from Stirling University, he worked as a maths teacher and served as a Councillor in Stirling. Lord Jack concealed organised abuse in Stirling. See eg. ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – The Scottish Play’.
Keith Thomson had a side-kick, Martin Jones. Martin was a UCNW graduate, who had graduated in Marine Sciences one or two years before I graduated. Martin is alleged to have failed accountancy exams and he then begun working for Gwynedd Health Authority on the NHS management training scheme. Like Keith, Martin grew up in north Wales but has served a few stints in NHS management in other parts of the UK. Martin worked as an NHS manager in Coventry. He also completed management qualifications at Aston and York Universities.
I’m not sure exactly when Keith and Martin served their time in the NHS in other regions of the UK, but Thomson’s name appears on the documents compiled about me in the mid-1990s when documents were being forged, NHS staff were committing perjury and bricks were being planted. Martin was working for Gwynedd Health Authority in the late 1980s, amid the earlier perjury and forgery…
Keith Thomson became the CEO of the NW Wales NHS Trust and Martin was the Financial Director when Keith was CEO. Thomson resigned in 2005 when he was threatened with imprisonment by the High Court in Cardiff after unlawfully refusing to release my medical records to my lawyers. Martin then became CEO and behaved every bit as dreadfully as Keith had.
I handed the Welsh Gov’t enough evidence to have Keith and Martin arrested. The criminality was ignored.
Richard Crossman, the Secretary of State for the DHSS, 1968-70, a member of the Westminster Paedophile Ring who used his position to vastly expand the ring, served as the Labour MP for Coventry East, 1945-74. Crossman was Assistant Editor of the ‘New Statesman’, 1938-55, then Editor, 1970-72. Crossman protected Dafydd and Gwynne and was also personal friends with people networked with the Bloomsbury Group who colonised Cwm Croesor. Crossman knew Jack Butterworth, the VC of Warwick University well.
John Blackstocke Butterworth (13 March 1918 – 19 June 2003) was a lawyer and the first Vice-Chancellor of the University of Warwick, located at Coventry. Jack graduated from Oxford and on the eve of WW II, he enlisted in the Royal Artillary, spending spent much of WW II in Scotland, protecting strategic targets from air attack. Butterworth qualified in 1946 as a barrister at Lincoln’s Inn, of which Lord Denning was a member. Years later, Cherie and Miranda also became members of Lincoln’s Inn.
Butterworth became a law tutor at New College, Oxford and served as bursar of New College for the last seven years of his time there. New College was a recruiting ground for the British security services; Crossman was recruited as a student and became recruiter when he taught at New College. Crossman’s wife Anne also worked for the security services. Anne had been one of the Bletchley Park contingent, like Trumpers. Trumpers admitted herself that she did sod all at Bletchley Park and that her dad only got her the job because the upper classes needed to be seen to be contributing to the war effort. Ah the Queen Mum stayed in London throughout the Blitz to be at one with the East End, except for every single night when she and her old man were shuttled well out of London to safety, only to be shuttled back in again the next morning to Do Their Bit Against Hitler.
Whether Anne Crossman was as useless as Trumpers I don’t know, but there was much fellow feeling between the Crossmans and Trumpers’ network. Trumpers’ husband Alan Barker was taught by Crossman at Oxford and Crossman tried to persuade Barker to become an MP; an MP for any party, it didn’t matter which, Crossman just thought that Barker would make a fine MP.
It was the brainless, useless, dishonest Trumpers who entered politics rather than Alan Barker. In 1980, during the Great Panic in the aftermath of Jeremy Thorpe standing trial and Mary Wynch beginning legal action against Dafydd and the gang, Trumpers’ friend Thatch gave Trumpers a peerage on the grounds of her sterling community work, which involved making friends with Jimmy Savile, concealing the organised abuse ring in Cambridgeshire and having to resign as a magistrate after it was revealed that she was friends with the Cambridge Rapist. See post ’95 Glorious Years!’ Trumpers was appointed as a junior Health Minister, in which capacity she gave Jimmy Savile a place on the management task force of Broadmoor Hospital.
Trumpers knew Gwynne and Dafydd but I haven’t yet found out how; it might have been through the Lloyd George family, because Trumpers was mates with them, but she was also mates with the Royals and a lot of aristos, as well as Bill Astor’s first wife Sarah Norton…
Previous posts have discussed how Crossman and his circle of friends were members of the Westminster Paedophile Ring, that many of them had worked for the security services and they used this network to conceal their sex offending and to protect the people who were framing and killing witnesses. They ran the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of the Social Security and the ring greatly expanded its activities when the two Ministries merged into the super-department that was the DHSS under Crossman.
Anne Crossman worked as the personal secretary to Maurice Edelman, the Cardiff-born Labour MP who preceded Geoffrey Robinson in his Coventry North West seat. Edelman was first elected as a Coventry MP in 1945, so he was present as the organised crime in Coventry grew and grew. See post ‘And Death Shall Have No Dominion’.
Jack Butterworth married his wife Doris in 1948 and they had one son and two daughters. It was in 1963 that Jack Butterworth became the VC of the University of Warwick, one of the new universities created in the wake of the 1962 Robbins Report, remaining in post until 1985. Butterworth ‘believed strongly that his job was to select Professors who would be leaders in their discipline and that he should stand aside and let them develop their subjects in their own way (although within a tight budget). Because he had worked only at Oxford, Jack wanted Oxford’s standards of academic performance at the undergraduate level and in research. He had a belief that Warwick must maintain a balance between ‘pure’ and ‘applied’ disciplines’.
A large part of Warwick’s success stemmed from Butterworth’s cultivation of links with the rich industrial enterprises of the Midlands. One of his first creations was an industrial centre, intended as a stimulus of advanced engineering in the region. He cultivated (and earned) ‘municipal goodwill’. That will be the goodwill of those involved in the municipal corruption of Coventry, who had excellent links with Dafydd’s gang in north Wales. Robert Bluglass was from Warwick; he went to Warwick School and is an enthusiastic member of the Old Warwickians and when he was living in Solihull running the NHS in Birmingham, Bluglass involved himself in public life in Warwick. After his name was removed from the medical register some years ago, Bluglass continued his life of socialising with the posh and his role as one of the movers and shakers behind Compton Verney, one of the finest art galleries in Europe and located in Warwickshire, left Bluglass in an excellent position to do this. See previous posts.
The Bluglasses and the Butterworths will not have missed the opportunity to attend each others At Homes.
Jack Butterworth built the Warwick Arts Centre. It was Jack’s pride and joy, but has nothing on Compton Verney. Jack’s link with Miss Martin, the famous ‘Anonymous Benefactor’, represented the crucial launching pad for the project, but funds came from many sources including a contribution for the third and final phase from the about to be abolished West Midlands County Council, whose gift was steered through by a Coventry Councillor. Although a high Tory, Butterworth ‘persuaded’ a ‘left wing politician’ that his Arts Centre deserved money. Unlike anything else in Coventry, which is a very disadvantaged city. Jack traded on the ‘sympathies’ of his friends on grant-making committees to consider Warwick University when the dosh was handed out and ‘held forth without giving quarter to Ministers’ whom he happened to bump into in corridors.
I take it that Jack knew all about Richard Crossman and the Westminster Paedophile Ring, which was the only reason why people tolerated this obnoxious git who did nothing at all for Coventry while he built up a university that did nothing for them either and built an Arts Centre that his mates could enjoy but would be of no benefit to people in Coventry.
I’m particularly Dave Spart on this matter because I had the Coventry-Warwick University Experience some years ago when one of my mates worked at Warwick University and I went to visit him there. He was living in Staffordshire and commuting miles because like most of the junior staff he couldn’t afford to live near the University, unless he lived in Coventry itself, which is seriously disadvantaged. Even I was surprised at the hard time that people were having in Coventry and I heard yet more a few years later when I made friends with some people who were involved with a community based in Coventry supporting refugees. They really were not benefiting from Jack’s legacy at all. Yet when one stepped onto the Warwick University campus it was a different world…
Dom Mintoff’s friend the TGWU General Secretary Jack Jones became a full-time official of the TGWU in Coventry when he returned to Britain in 1938 after his war service. Jones played a key role in organising the workforce of the West Midlands motor industry in the postwar period as Regional Secretary of the TGWU. Jack Jones was an early supporter of the Institute for Workers’ Control. While Assistant General Secretary of the TGWU and a member of the Labour Party’s NEC, Jack Jones Chaired the Labour Party policy group on Industrial Democracy.
I remember the war at the Birmingham British Leyland plant between Red Robbo and Thatch’s man Michael Edwardes well. See previous posts.
Anyone for bringing Thatch down?
They only needed to have blown the whistle on Jack Butterworth and his mates in the Westminster Paedophile Ring…
I do keep telling everyone that the Comrades and Brothers and their Sisters too were solid supporters of Dafydd and Gwynne. As was the Anti-Apartheid Movement.
It was ‘The Specials’ who recorded ‘Free Nelson Mandela’. The Specials were from Coventry and very recently, Terry Hall, the lead singer gave media interviews about being the victims of a paedophile gang when he was at school… Other ‘Specials’ favourites included ‘Gangsters’ and ‘If You Have A Racist Friend…’
‘It doesn’t matter, it’s only happening in North Wales.’
The Institute for Workers’ Control was founded in 1968 by Tony Topham and Ken Coates, the latter then a leader of the International Marxist Group. The Institute drew together shop stewards and militant workers to discuss workers’ control of production.
Here’s Karl Marx, through to the final of Python’s ‘Communist Quiz’; Karl was answering questions in an attempt to win a Beautiful Lounge Suite.
Primrose Hill, habitat of Uncle Harry’s brother-in-law:
The Third World:
The Institute grew out of the Workers’ Control Conferences organised from 1964 by ‘The Week’ and the Voice and the Centre for Socialist Education. From around 100 at the first meeting in Nottingham, the figure grew to some 1200 in 1969. The Institute won sponsorship from a number of trade union leaders, including Hugh Scanlon. In the later opinion of the International Marxist Group’s journal, the Institute over-accommodated to its sponsors and failed to organise its supporters: “only 26 people attended the AGM in 1970 and affiliation and membership fees have been maintained at a very high level.”
Kenneth Sidney Coates (16 September 1930-27 June 2010) Chaired the Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation and edited The Spokesman, the BRPF magazine launched in March 1970. So he wasn’t going to touch Dafydd and Gwynne and their network of crime, what with Bertrand using the services so helpfully provided by Gwynne and Dafydd in north Wales…
Coates had joined the Communist Party of Great Britain, along with Eric Hobsbawm, E.P. Thompson and so many others in Uncle Harry’s brother-in-law’s circle. Ken Coates left the CPGB following the breach between Stalin and Tito, whom he defended. After the 1956 Soviet invasion of Hungary, Coates and Pat Jordan became the focal point of a group of Marxists with a developing interest in Trotskyism. After attending the fifth world congress of the Fourth International in 1958, of which they were very critical, Coates played a central role in founding the International Group, forerunner of the International Marxist Group.
Coates also played leading roles in END (European Nuclear Disarmament), of which E.P. Thompson was the principal mover and shaker. See post ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’. E.P. Thompson had a second home in Croesor and held a Chair at Warwick University…
Coates contested Nottingham South in 1983 as the Labour Party candidate, but lost. Coates was a Labour MEP, 1989-99 and spent five years as President of its Human Rights Subcommittee.
You forgot to mention something Ken!
In 1989, a junior psych nurse whom I knew who was becoming traumatised and disillusioned with what she saw happening to her patients told me that she could not understand why it was being written in to all the much boasted about human rights legislation, even at European level, that this legislation did not apply to psychiatric patients detained under the Mental Health Act. She knew about Dafydd and Denbigh and we had many a good chin wag. We could not understand why psych patients were being systematically excluded from the legal protection that was now being extended to convicted prisoners, illegal immigrants etc…
Right to a family life? Er not if you’ve been banged up in a secure psych unit without trial or conviction on the uncontested evidence of Dafydd and his mates. Right to life? Er sorry, it was the ‘side effects of the medication’ or a ‘life threatening situation’ and the Angels ‘had to restrain’. The taser that killed the patient? Another life-threatening situation again, we didn’t know that the patient had a dodgy heart, ooh he went at the Angels and police officers like a madman!
Just take a look at the pieces of legislation. Empowered Service Users have no protection at all, none. That is why they provided such fertile hunting ground for an international trafficking ring.
While Coates was an MEP, he was in contact with Vadim Zagladin, one of Gorbachev’s advisers, about the idea of a joint meeting between the European Parliament and the Supreme Soviet. Coates persuaded the European Parliament to explore the possibility of such a joint meeting, as a practical way of exploring Gorbachev’s call for a ‘common European home’ and supporting his democratic reforms. Eduard Shevardnadze, the Soviet foreign minister, visited the European Parliament, and said he would be willing to be present at a joint meeting. Coates visited Zagladin in Moscow, who offered a four-point programme of stages for realisation of the Joint Special Session, as it came to be known.
Ken Coates pioneered a number of initiatives to help focus the institutions of European civil society, beginning with a Pensioners Parliament and also including a Parliament of Disabled People and two Europe-wide conferences of unemployed people.
Meet Dr Rachel Perkins, who held a seat on the EHRC as the Commissioner for the disabled:
Rachel Perkins was Clinical Director of Springfield Hospital while the institution facilitated an organised abuse ring across south London and had direct links with Dafydd’s gang and colluded with their criminality. At Springfield, patients were raped and murdered and a member of staff was murdered as well. The death of the staff member was the event which eventually led to a Public Inquiry, at which it was concluded that Springfield was in such a bad way that it could not be rescued.
Ken Coates strongly supported the Delors programme for full employment in Europe and became rapporteur of the Parliament’s Temporary Committee on Employment, which carried two major reports with almost unanimous support of the European Parliament.
Coates was the co-author, with Tony Topham, of the official history of the TGWU, among numerous other books on poverty, political philosophy, democratic and humanistic socialism, social and economic issues, peace and disarmament as well as on democracy and human rights. He also continued to support the democratic left in Eastern Europe, and was a member of the advisory board of the ‘Novi Plamen’ magazine.
In the early years of the millennium, the people traffickers of Gwynedd Social Services began hitching rides on the EU collaborative projects that were being run by the social scientists at Bangor University. Social workers who had participated in the violent abuse and framing of psych patients attended seminars with German sociologists and social work professors and Shared Their Knowledge, explaining that the community mental health services in Gwynedd were among the Best In Europe. Patients at the time were dying destitute in Gwynedd and were being hauled off to prison on the basis of perjury and fabricated evidence. I worked with the same German academics some years later and just thought ‘you have no idea of what that lot were doing to us, no idea at all…’
The problem is Merfyn Jones! He’s given a PhD place and now a job to a Dangerous Nutter! We’ve sent him her medical records to Prove It, but look, look, She’s Still THERE!!!
Ken Coates was ‘special Professor’ in the Department of Adult Education at Nottingham University, 1990–2004. In 1987, I worked for Prof Robert Baldwin’s team at the Cancer Research Campaign labs at Nottingham University. Baldwin was perpetrating a massive research fraud with a US drug company. It was widely known, both in Nottingham University, in the CRC, among the Top Doctors in Nottingham and among the staff in other Big Pharma companies, including in Boots, which of course was based in Nottingham. A lot of people loathed Baldwin and the junior staff were just escaping from his lab as soon as they could, but no-one stopped him. See post ‘Oh, Lordy, It’s CR UK’. The VC of Nottingham University at the time, Professor Basil Weedon, an organic chemist, undoubtedly knew what Baldwin was doing. See previous posts…
Ken’s fellow revolutionary Pat Jordan (17 July 1928-1 September 2001) was a British Trotskyist who was central to the founding of the International Marxist Group. Jordan was born in Chelsea, the son of an electrical engineer. On 21 October 1950 he married Leonora May Comrie, but the marriage was annulled in 1958 and she went on to marry Rodney Kay-Kreizman.
Jordan was a full-time organiser in the Communist Party of Great Britain in Nottingham, but he left the party with Coates after the invasion of Hungary in 1956. After a brief period working with the Socialist Review Group in 1956, they joined the Revolutionary Socialist League (RSL) in 1957. Jordan edited the RSL’s paper Socialist Fight before leaving to form the International Group in 1961. From 1964 to 1968 Jordan edited and printed ‘The Week’ at his tiny bookshop at 4 Dane Street, Nottingham.
A short-lived reunification of Jordan’s International Group with the RSL in 1964 ended early in 1965, partly in protest at the RSL’s support for the expulsion of members of the Socialist Labour League from the Wandsworth Labour Party. Working with Tony Southall, Charlie van Gelderen, Ken Coates and a group students from Nottingham University, Jordan relaunched the International Group, which became the International Marxist Group in 1968.
In the 1970s Jordan worked full-time for the International Marxist Group as its National Secretary and then for the Fourth International, when he helped in the work of the Africa Commission. In 1985 he was struck by a chronically disabling stroke and removed from active political involvement. Jordan died in August 2001, eight months after the publication of the Waterhouse Report that was designed to be the final nail in the coffin of the bodies of all the victims of Dafydd’s partner gangs in Wandsworth, Nottingham, Coventry etc that no-one, no-one at all, knew about.
I remember reading this free plug that the Daily Mail provided for Chamberlain’s son’s fashion business, ‘Red Or Dead’. I noticed that they referred to Chamberlain as Sir Geoffrey, yet when the research fraud scandal involving Chamberlain and his colleague Malcolm Pearce blew up in 1994 (see eg. ‘Now Then…’), it was stated that it cost Chamberlain his expected knighthood. So did the Mail just make a slip? Or was Chamberlain known to be a dead cert for the K and it disappeared at the very last minute?
Pat Jordan’s obituary written by Steve Cohen in ‘Revolutionary History’ has an overwhelmingly sad tone to it:
Pat Jordan died alone in a nursing home in Lincoln on 1 September 2001, having lived there since suffering a stroke in 1986. The loneliness and isolation of his death were very different from the vibrancy of the period in 1968, when one newspaper described him as ‘the most dangerous man in Britain’. This somewhat hyperbolic, apocalyptic description was a response to Pat’s position as Secretary of the Vietnam Solidarity Campaign at a time when that campaign was able to organise demonstrations of over 100,000 strong, and when it was part of a global movement which eventually helped force the Americans out of Vietnam. It is doubtful whether anyone else in the nursing home knew he had once been perceived (and to an extent correctly perceived) as a danger to the world order – in spite of the fact that his room was stuffed with openly displayed revolutionary literature. Though Pat died largely forgotten, his positive role in the VSC should never be forgotten to history.
We should also remember Pat’s work in building the International Marxist Group. The IMG has been generally trashed by history as being some sort of ultra-left studentist indulgence. Pat’s death is an opportunity to provide a more positive appraisal of the organisation. It is also an opportunity to reflect on how revolutionary comrades, in this case one who was central to the major political campaign of his day, can become personally marginalised in old age and infirmity, whilst still retaining a socialist identity…
…The fact that it has fallen to myself to write this critical dedication/portrait, and not to some of the bigger luminaries from his past in the IMG or VSC in itself, shows the isolation in which Pat’s life ended. As far as I know, the only person prominent in both these organisations who has written an obituary is Tony Southall (who himself unfortunately died shortly afterwards). This was in the October 2001 issue of Socialist Outlook, the journal of the last surviving remnant of the IMG – the International Socialist Group. There has been no public meeting to commemorate Pat Jordan’s life. Whilst in Lincoln, he was visited by very few of his old comrades – one who did visit him was Charlie Van Gelderen, who would travel up from Cambridge, but who is also now dead…
They all died during or shortly after the Waterhouse Inquiry…
Pat Jordan was born in Chelsea, London, on 17 July 1928. He had a brother Peter, who was eventually to become a plastic surgeon…
There’s the clue everyone!! They really are not very nice at all and they will bump off anyone who is a witness.
WHY DIDN’T YOU LISTEN TO US?
Pat spent the last years of his life before his stroke as a revolutionary militant in Hackney Labour Party – doing what other revolutionary militants were then doing in the Labour Party (in my view, for what it’s worth, knocking their heads against brick walls).
And telling us all that the doctors they were wonderful…
Within the party, he was active in the campaign which fought against the local council on the ‘Three Noes’ – no rate increases, no rent increases, no cuts.
I suspected as much…
He participated in Irish and Palestinian solidarity work. History sometimes has a way of coming full circle, or at least half-circle. Four decades after quitting the Revolutionary Socialist League (the Militant tendency) and whilst still disagreeing with most of its politics, he helped set up Labour Against the Witch-hunt to campaign against its expulsion from the Labour Party – though by this stage the RSL was denying its own existence and had become the organisation that dare not speak its name. At the time of his stroke, Pat had put himself forward to the local party for selection as a Councillor for Hackney.
The Borough which was sending kids in care to Dafydd et al in north Wales, while Wendy Savage the Socialist Feminist performed repeated abortions on the gang’s victims in Tower Hamlets, explaining to the world that she was Supporting these chaotic, dysfunctional women who made Bad Choices. See post ‘Uncle Harry’s Friends…’
When I visited Pat in his last years in Lincoln, he was not in a good way. He had completely lost his short-term memory. However, he had memories of the longer term – not least his days in the Vietnam Solidarity Campaign, and his meetings with Jean-Paul Sartre in Paris to coordinate international events. His spirit remained unbroken, and he evinced no self-pity about his physical condition, or about his personal or political isolation. His somewhat stoic view seemed to have been that as a revolutionary the system was eventually going to get him – either through its armed bodies of men or through a stroke. I think he would have preferred it was the armed bodies of men! But best of all he would have preferred to have seen the triumph of the revolution. But then, wouldn’t we all?
You could have if any of you had shown the least bit of concern for the sheepshaggers in north Wales. You were occupied with rather more important matters.
As with a number of New Labour stalwarts, in his teenage years, Mandy was a member of the Young Communists League, although he later became a member of the Oxford University Labour Club. Mandy was an undergrad at St Catherine’s College, Oxford, 1973-76. St Catherine’s has a close association with New College, Oxford. See post ‘A Study In Tyranny’. In the late 1970s Mandy became Chairman of the British Youth Council. As Chair of the BYC, he was a delegate in 1978 to the Soviet-organised World Festival of Youth and Students in Havana, Cuba, where with several future Labour Cabinet colleagues, Mandy – together with future IUSY President Hilary Barnard, Charles Clarke, Richard Corbett and Trevor Phillips – ‘successfully frustrated agreement on a distorted Soviet text on youth in the capitalist countries’.
Mandy was elected to Lambeth Borough Council in September 1979 but stood down in 1982, disillusioned with the state of Labour politics. Presumably not because of the en masse abuse of kids in care in Lambeth. Mandy then worked for some time as a TV producer at LWT, where he formed a friendship with his then boss John Birt.
In the early 1990s, Cilla’s ‘Blind Date’ was the biggest money spinner for LWT. Cilla’s pal Geoffrey Chamberlain used to stress that he was a supporter of the Labour Party.
Jack Butterworth’s period as VC of Warwick was not without controversy, particularly regarding his opposition to the establishment of a Students’ union. Above the main bar of the Students Union building at Warwick University there is an inscription quoting him as saying “The Students’ union shall never have its own building”. Jack’s period of office included the student protests beginning in the late 1960s. During the Warwick Events, in which Merfyn played a major role being the Chairman of the Socialist Society at Warwick, where he was a postgrad at the time (see previous posts), Butterworth’s office was occupied and files rummaged through. The students found that secret files on themselves had been compiled and evidence that Butterworth was doing a lot of things that he should not have been doing. The protests were supported by E.P. Thompson, who later wrote his book ‘Warwick University Ltd’ about the Events, as a result of which Thompson resigned from his post at Warwick. Butterworth had appointed E.P. Thompson himself.
Butterworth’s other passions were the Association of Commonwealth Universities, an organisation devoted to providing assistance to anglophone universities in developing countries, of which he was Chairman for 10 years; and the Foundation for Science and Technology of which he became Chairman in 1990, subsequently holding the position of President until his death. Butterworth was also the Chairman of Midland Community Radio, the consortium which successfully bid for the Independent Radio franchise for Coventry and Warwickshire. The radio station launched as Mercia Sound in 1979 and became the most successful commercial radio station in England in terms of audience figures.
Butterworth was given a seat in the Lords on retirement from Warwick University in 1985, the year that Mary Wynch hit the media after winning her appeal before the Master of the Rolls re Dafydd and the gang. In the summer of 1985, I first contacted MPs and Ministers re the gang; I did not realise that Tony Francis had contacted them first, as soon as he thought that I would raise my concerns with Parliament. Butterworth sat as a Tory peer.
Jack Butterworth died in June 2003, so he outlasted the Waterhouse Report and was around to give a helping hand there. ‘The Guardian’ published an obituary for him:
The death of Lord Butterworth of Warwick, at the age of 85, marks the departure of the last of that group of vice chancellors who had the opportunity in the early 1960s – offered to no one else in the last 50 years – of founding a university from scratch on a greenfield site. The group included Lord Fulton at Sussex…
Lord John Fulton passed through everywhere necessary to play a leading role in concealing the Westminster Paedophile Ring. He studied at St Andrews University, Bluglass’s alma mater and then Balliol, which hosted Ted Heath, Denis Healey and Woy Jenkins all at the same time. Fulton lectured at the LSE and Balliol and became a good friend of Harold Wilson during WW II.
Fulton was Principal of University College, Swansea, 1947-59 and served as VC for the University of Wales, 1952-54 and 1958-59. He preceded Asa as Principal/VC of the University of Sussex, 1959-67. Fulton was Chairman of UCCA, 1961-64. Dafydd’s gang were accessing info from UCCA in order to target sixth formers who had applied to university. Fulton was a member of the OU PLanning Committee, 1967-70. He became involved in university policy making overseas, including in Malta, Sierra Leone, Nigeria, and Hong Kong, and in 1962, Fulton Chaired the committee that established the new Chinese University of Hong Kong.
From 1962 to 1965, Fulton was Chairman of both the BBC and ITA Committees on adult education. He served as a BBC Governor, 1966-71, serving twice as Vice-Chairman, 1966-67 and 1968-71. Wilson invited Fulton to Chair the Committee on the Civil Service in 1964. Reporting in 1968, it included the creation of a Civil Service College as one of its 158 recommendations. In 1968, Fulton’s international work continued as he became Chairman of the British Council, serving until 1971.
Butterworth, or “Jolly Jack” as he was known, was born in Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, went to Queen Elizabeth’s grammar school, Mansfield and won an open scholarship to Queen’s College, Oxford…After wartime service in the Royal Artillery, he returned to the chambers of Rupert Cross, but but was soon back in Oxford as fellow in law (1946-63) and bursar (1956-63) at New College…
In the late 1950s, it became apparent that more university places were required in Britain…the university grants committee (UGC) encouraged cities and regions to bid for new foundations. Most came from committees headed by archbishops or hereditary peers; only from Coventry was there a bid led by industrialists, trade unionists and Labour city councillors.
At the age of 43, Butterworth turned down the vice chancellorship of the new University of Lancaster to take on Warwick…He brought some very untraditional ideas to Coventry: he believed that the university had to combine academic excellence with a strong orientation towards the local and regional community…
When the UGC resisted, the university starting engineering, Butterworth persuaded industry to protest – and when it ignored Warwick’s bid to create a business school, he raised the funds to establish one anyway. He and Lord (Billy) Rootes, founder of Rootes Motors in Coventry and Chairman of the local promotion committee, were an extraordinary fundraising combination and established a tradition at Warwick that success could not be achieved on government funding alone…
William Edward Rootes, 1st Baron Rootes (17 August 1894 – 12 December 1964) was a British motor manufacturer. He opened his first car sales agency in 1913, leading to the eventual formation of the global Rootes Group. During WW II Rootes supervised the manufacture of aircraft, engines, the supply of military motor vehicles and armoured fighting vehicles. Rootes was knighted in 1942 for these services and for organising the reconstruction of bomb-damaged Coventry by the Luftwaffe on 14–15 November 1940. In the 1950s, Rootes became a leader of Britain’s export drive and Chaired a committee to found Warwick University, with a vision of academic links with industry.
William (Billy) Rootes was born in Kent, attended Cranbrook School and on leaving school in 1909 was apprenticed to the Singer car company. Billy left Singer in 1913 to start his own car agency. Rootes married his first wife, Nora Press, in 1916. The marriage produced two sons, William Geoffrey Rootes (1917–1992) who served as Chairman of the family business (at that time a subsidiary of Chrysler Corporation and renamed as Chrysler United Kingdom), 1967-73 and Brian Gordon Rootes (1919–1971) who also held a succession of senior positions within the company, 1937-67.
In 1958, Billy Rootes bought Ramsbury Manor, Wiltshire. The family seat of Peter Morrison’s family was in Wiltshire; Morrison’s father Lord John Margadale had been the Tory MP for Salisbury, 1942-65 and Morrison’s brother Charles was the Tory MP for Devizes, 1964-92. The Morrison virtually ran Wiltshire. See previous posts.
Billy Rootes died in 1964. It had been intended that Rootes would be the first Chancellor of Warwick University; he is commemorated there by the Rootes Social Building, Rootes student residences, Rootes Grocery Store and the Lord Rootes Memorial Fund.
Billy Rootes’s son (William) Geoffrey Rootes, 2nd Baron Rootes (14 June 1917-16 January 1992), commonly styled Geoffrey Rootes, inherited his father’s business empire in 1964. He was the Chairman of Rootes Motors (1964-67) Chrysler UK (1967-1978) and of Britain’s National Economic Development Council, 1968-1973. The National Economic Development Council was loathed by Thatch and finally abolished by John Major, but it played an important role during the Wilson and Heath years in deciding Gov’t business strategy and investment. The son of the man who was involved with so much corruption linked to the Westminster Paedophile Ring was appointed Chairman when Harold Wilson was PM…
Geoffrey Rootes was educated at Port Regis, Harrow and Oxford. He married his wife, Marian, on 15 August 1946. Their children were Sally Hayter Rootes and Nicholas Geoffrey Rootes, the 3rd Baron Rootes.
[Butterworth] remained a remarkable picker of professors, persuading selection committees to make controversial choices of people who went on to become academic stars and build international reputations at Warwick…
Butterworth was a great vice chancellor not just because of his vision, but because of his enormous commitment and enthusiasm for the task. He and his remarkable wife Doris gave the best parties in the university, filling the lodge with a bewildering mixture of academics of all ages and seniority, industrialists, local politicians and students…
His ambition for Warwick’s success and his willingness to take risks – coupled with a shrewd management of its finances – drove the university forward. Perhaps his crowning achievement was the Warwick arts centre, built entirely from private monies, with its complex of theatres, concert hall, cinema and art gallery right in the heart of the campus and attracting sometimes 2,000 visitors a night from all over the west midlands…
He was also sometimes a controversial figure. He fell out badly with student and staff radicalism in 1970 over allegations, never substantiated, of industrial interference in the university, and over his invitation to Margaret Thatcher in 1984 to open the university’s science park…
Throughout this period, he also played a significant role outside the university – as a Coventry magistrate
Dafydd’s gang will have greatly appreciated that particular contribution to public service.
a managing trustee of the Nuffield Foundation, chairman of the inter-university council for higher education overseas and of the body responsible for trades union negotiations with universities’ employees. He sat on numerous significant committees. On his elevation to the House of Lords in 1985, he played a full part on the science and technology select committee, and chaired the Foundation for Science and Technology.
But Butterworth’s lasting contribution must be his 22-years at Warwick, and only a few days before his death, he attended an alumni event in the Lords, hosted by one of his most distinguished professorial appointments, Lord Robert Skidelsky…
Robert Jacob Alexander, Baron Skidelsky (born 25 April 1939) was a boarder at Brighton College, 1953-58. He read history at Jesus College, Oxford, a college with very strong Welsh links, which educated many of the people in senior professional roles who colluded with Dafydd and the gang eg. the corrupt judge Huw Daniel as well as Daniel’s father, J.E. Daniel, who knew Dafydd when Dafydd was a medical student and newly qualified Top Doc. Harold Wilson was a graduate of Jesus College. See previous posts. From 1961 to 1969, Skidelsky was successively a research student, senior student and research fellow at Nuffield College, Oxford.
Skidelsky held a research fellowship at the British Academy. In 1970, he became an Associate Professor of History in the School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University. Skidelsky was Professor of History, Philosophy and European Studies at the Poly of North London, 1976-78. In 1978, he was appointed Professor of International Studies at Warwick University, where he remained, although he joined the Economics Department as Professor of Political Economy in 1990. Robert Skidelsky was appointed Professorial Fellow of the Global Policy Institute at London Met University. Skidelsky has been an honorary Fellow of Jesus College, Oxford, since 1997. He was elected a Fellow of the British Academy in 1994.
Skidelsky co-authored on globalisation with Vijay Joshi, a Fellow of St John’s College, Oxford. Edward du Cann and Kingsley Amis are both graduates of St John’s College, Oxford who concealed the Westminster Paedophile Ring as well as Dafydd’s gang. One of the biggest protectors that Dafydd’s gang had was Sir Idwal Pugh, a mandarin who served in the Welsh Office and then as Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman and allowed the gang to do whatever they wanted. See post ‘The Naked Civil Servants’.
Skidelsky was originally a member of the Labour Party. He became a founding member of the SDP, where he remained until the Party’s dissolution in 1992. On 15 July 1991 he was created a life peer and in 1992 he became a Tory. Skidelsky was made Chief Opposition Spokesman in the Lords, first for Culture, then for Treasury affairs, 1997-99, but was removed by Conservative Party leader William Hague. In 2001, Skidelsky left the Conservative Party for the cross benches. He was Chairman of the Social Market Foundation (see previous posts), 1991-2001.
In September 2015, Skidelsky endorsed Jeremy Corbyn’s campaign in the Labour Party Leadership election.
An extract from Jack Butterworth’s Torygraph obituary told us that:
…In 1970 Warwick dons passed a motion of no confidence in Butterworth after the publication by a young but influential member of staff,
That was E.P. Thompson
of a pamphlet which alleged that Butterworth had allowed the university to become dominated by business interests and that he had attempted to “bribe” a former Professor of Mathematics by promising him additional accommodation for his department if he would stop supporting students in their demands for their own union building. Butterworth kept his cool; none of the allegations was ever substantiated and the row eventually blew over…
With regard to the ‘allegations’ against old Butterworth that were ‘never substantiated’, Richard Crossman was pals with Jack and Doris and they received a few mentions in his ‘Diaries’, as did the Warwick Events and the documents that E.P. Thompson, Merfyn and their mates discovered in the Registry. Crossman was a little concerned at what Butterworth had been up to…
From 1964 to 1999 he was a governor of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.
Which will have brought Butterworth into contact with numerous luvvies who had links to those in Dafydd’s wider network, including Sir Ian McKellan and Dame Judi Dench, who is Patron of the St James’s Singers, the elite choir in which Robert Bluglass and his wife Top Doctor Kerry Bluglass sing. See previous posts…
On Feb 20 1970, Crossman noted in his diary that he visited Rugby School to give his ‘usual address’ to the boys and after drinks ‘and a very good dinner’ with the then new Headmaster, James Woodhouse, Crossman got into conversation with a ‘very keen young man who teaches economics to the fifth form and has just got himself made the Labour candidate for Warwick and Leamington’. It was J. T. Watkinson. ‘He was full of the story of Warwick University, where the students have been holding a sit-in in the Registry and have broken open the files and found that Jack Butterworth has been corresponding with industrialists in Coventry and America, discussing his staff and undergraduates in a most undesirable way. I am in two minds about this. I deeply feel that no one can run a university or a Ministry if private files are broken open and people are allowed to see confidential letters. On the other hand I have also felt for a long time that Jack Butterworth would kowtow to industrialists with no kind of scruples about academic independence because he wants them to give money to the University. A lot of his staff rather suspected him of this and in the political climate there is at Warwick the discovery of these letters seemed to clinch this suspicion. Yet the manner of their discovery makes life absolutely impossible’.
So even the unscrupulous Westminster Swinger Richard Crossman who was letting Dafydd and Gwynne do whatever they felt like thought that Jack Butterworth’s practices were a little beyond the pale.
A footnote in Crossman’s ‘Diaries’ informs us that the demos at Warwick spread to Oxford and then onto other universities, where students raided university offices in search of files on the political activities of students. On Feb 27th, the university VCs met representatives from the NUS, led by their President, Mr Jack Straw. As a result of the meeting, the Chairman of the Committee of VCs and Principals, the VC of Durham University, Sir Derman Christopherson, announced that in future, details of a student’s academic record would be open to the individual concerned. He added that in his own mind he was quite certain that no university kept files on the political or religious affiliations of students.
At the time that Jack met the VCs, Sir Charles Evans was Principal at UCNW and Dafydd and the institution was a vehicle for the trafficking gang. Sir Derman’s institution at Durham was colluding with Dafydd’s partner gang in the North East and employed a social anthropologist, Eric Sunderland, who grew up in Carmarthenshire, was networked into the gang and would become a PVC at Durham. In 1984, Professor Sunderland responded to the distress flares sent up by the gang and became the Principal of UCNW on the retirement of Sir Charles. Distress flares were going up all over the place because I had complained about Gwynne the lobotomist, who was sitting in the Student Health Centre at UCNW doing things that he should not have been doing. Eric then continued denying and concealing what Gwynne and the gang were doing.
In 1984 I wrote to the GMC about Gwynne who told me that my complaint about him fell outside of their remit. The President of the GMC at the time was Lord John Walton, Dafydd’s and Gwynne’s mate, who was a psych and neurosurgeon and pretty much ran Newcastle-upon-Tyne University, which was of course linked to Durham University. Walton knew Gwynne and he also knew Sir Charles Evans, Sir Charles being a former neurosurgeon himself.
Walton was President of the GMC, 1982-89 and during that time the GMC ignored numerous very serious complaints about Gwynne and Dafydd, including complaints relating to unlawful imprisonment, sexually improper behaviour, abuse, neglect and deaths. There were five complaints in one month alone about Dafydd. Walton knew that they were running a trafficking ring, because he was facilitating the linked branch of that ring in the North East. Walton was appointed President of the BMA in 1980, when Mary began her litigation against Dafydd and the gang, was shortly in place as President of the GMC as well and in 1984 was appointed President of the Royal Society of Medicine, just to ensure that the fortress was impenetrable.
Walton was given a peerage in 1989, when Alison Taylor and I would not shut up and Alison had written to Thatch, Carlo and other Ministers. 1989 was the year in which I was offered the job at Westminster Paedophile Ring Central, St George’s Hospital Medical School, as a trap to ensure that I would be forced out of medical research permanently. See previous posts for info about Walton and his service on so many Lords Committees, including the Medical Ethics Committee, which he Chaired in 1993-94.

Dafydd, who obtained an injunction against me in 1994 from Liverpool High Court on the basis of no evidence at all, although his affidavit did discuss his anus:
In 1993, the North Wales Police terminated their investigation into allegations that a a VIP paedophile ring was operating in north Wales/Cheshire and was being concealed at the highest levels of Gov’t, stating that there was no evidence of this.

Dafydd will be holding one of his clinics in Prestatyn next week should any patients require an appointment:
In 1984 Jack had succeeded Babs Castle as MP for Burnley and was continuing to conceal the criminality of Gwynne, Dafydd and the gang, as Jack had done for many years.
It’s All Merfyn’s Fault! Kick Him Out!
Lord John Walton knew the Global Leaders In Neurosurgery at the Walton Centre as well, the Global Leaders who were associates of Dafydd’s gang and who found themselves unable to offer Nerys any effective treatment, despite all the Global Leading.
Now Don’t You Worry My Dear, We’ll Look After You.
J. T. Watkinson, the teacher at Rugby who had the dirt on Jack Butterworth and had a good gossip to Crossman about it, was John Taylor Watkinson, (25 January 1941-21 September 2004). He was educated at Bristol Grammar School before reading PPE at Worcester College, Oxford. Lord Asa Briggs, defender of the Brighton end of Dafydd and John Allen’s business empire, was Fellow of Worcester College, 1945-55 and Provost of Worcester, 1976-91.
From graduation until 1971 Watkinson taught at Rugby and thereafter was called to the Bar, where he practised on the Midland Circuit. As did this crooked old sod, who worked in Chambers in Nottingham before being elected as a Tory MP for an affluent constituency in Nottingham, who subsequently did battle with the BMA, loathed them, but couldn’t win because they were all concealing the Westminster Paedophile Ring, so he came after me and those who knew me instead. See eg. ‘Jennifer’s Diary’.
John Watkinson was the Labour MP for Gloucestershire West, Oct 1974-1979. Watkinson was on the right of the Labour Party. He joined Dr Death in October 1981 and contested Gloucestershire West under those colours in 1983 and 1987.
Watkinson died from cancer in 2004, the year that Dafydd and the gang hoped to see me imprisoned for a substantial time for ‘threatening to kill Alun Davies’. His obituary in ‘The Guardian’ stated that:
...Although a good constituency MP, Watkinson made the mistake of taking minor parliamentary jobs. He was parliamentary private secretary at the home office, first to Roy Jenkins and then Merlyn Rees.
Both of whom colluded with Dafydd and the gang. Woy was a Westminster Swinger himself and Chancellor of the Exchequer when Crossman ran the DHSS.
He was also rapporteur on human rights in the council of Europe and the Western European Union. These posts provided few headlines in constituency newspapers. The Thatcher tide in the 1979 general election replaced him by [Paul] Marland, and Watkinson went to work for BBC TV as a financial reporter.
He reappeared in the political world in 1981 when more than 40 Labour MPs and ex-MPs publicly defected to the SDP under the leadership of the Gang of Four. Like most of the others, Watkinson was pro-European and critical of the leftwing postures and union domination of Michael Foot’s Labour party, and, although he twice carried the flag for the SDP in Gloucestershire West, in 1983 and 1987, he did not seriously threaten Marland’s hold.
He returned to the law, becoming a solicitor in 1986, and also a director of a Chepstow firm, Interconnect Communications. From 1992 he became a specialist adviser on telecommunications to a score of newly emerging countries, largely on the basis of his 1987 book, UK Telecommunications Manual.
He is survived by his wife Jane, two sons and two daughters.
Paul Marland, Watkinson’s Tory opponent, married Caroline Marland, the Caroline Marland who was at one time former managing director of Guardian Newspapers Ltd.
Anyone for Supporting Our NHS?
2003 in Lincoln’s Inn Chapel. Canon W.B. Norman officiated. The Hon
John Butterworth, Jack’s son, read from Shakespeare’s Cymbeline and Lord
Peyton of Yeovil gave an address.
John Wynne William Peyton, Baron Peyton of Yeovil, (13 February 1919 – 22 November 2006) was the Tory MP for Yeovil, 1951-83, preceding Paddy Pantsdown in that seat. Peyton was an early and leading member of the Monday Club. He served as Minister of Transport in Heath’s Gov’t, 1970-74. He was a candidate for leader of the Conservative Party in 1975, losing to Thatch.
It was the crooked Tory MP for Taunton, Edward du Cann, who was involved with precipitating the leadership challenge to Heath. Peyton will have known du Cann and Peyton will have known my grandfather as well, the West Country Tories were all well-acquainted. Peyton will also know whatever David Hunt’s ‘services to politics in the West Country’ were which resulted in Hunt of Dafydd And The Gang receiving a gong before Hunt ever became elected to the Commons. Neither did Hunt represent a West Country constituency when he was elected; he represented the Wirral, part of Dafydd’s Merseyside arm. See previous posts.
The cheerleader for Thatch in the Tory leadership campaign was Sir Peter Morrison.
Peyton studied law while confined and was called to the Bar in 1945. He accompanied Sir Walter Monckton, adviser to the Nizam of Hyderabad to India in 1946 and 1947, in the run up to Indian Independence. Peyton will therefore have been party to the shenanigans of, or at least the allegations re the shenanigans of, Lord Louis Mountbatten. See post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’.
Peyton became a broker at Lloyd’s of London in 1947 and then pursued a political career.
Peyton married twice. He married Diana, daughter of Douglas Clinch, in 1947, but was divorced in early 1966. They had two sons, one of whom died young and a daughter. He remarried on 27 July 1966, to Mary Cobbold, daughter of Colonel Humphrey Wyndham (also her second marriage). Peyton unsuccessfully contested the safe Labour seat of Bristol Central for the Tories in the 1950 General Election, before being elected for Yeovil in 1951. He was PPS to Nigel Birch, a junior defence minister, 1952-58.
Nigel Birch aka Lord Rhyl was the Eton education Tory MP for Flintshire and then West Flintshire, 1945-70, who was one of those who brought Macmillan down after Profumo. Which was the height of irony; Dafydd’s embryonic activities had something to do with Profumo and Nigel Birch had quite a lot to do with Dafydd. It was Nigel Birch who as a ‘friendly gesture to a fellow old Etonian’ supported Sir Anthony Myer as the Tory candidate to succeed him in the seat in 1970.
After more than a decade as the MP for West Flintshire, Myer did battle with Dafydd’s mate Beata Brookes and the local Tory Party was nearly destroyed in the process. Meyer’s subsequent stalking horse challenge to Thatcher’s leadership paved the way for her disposal a few years later. However, Sir Anthony was a Westminster Swinger himself and only bagged the seat on the turf of Dafydd and Gwynne because of Nigel Birch’s act of kindness. Meyer was so distant from Tory policies at the time that he could not find a seat anywhere else. He had previously served as the Tory MP for Eton and Slough… A constituency just like Flintshire, obviously. See previous posts.
Sir Anthony Meyer was also something to do with Heseltine and Heseltine’s attempt to become PM by throwing hissy fits and thus precipitating the Westland Crisis in the mid-1980s. Westland involved an ailing business in Yeovil and various people who knew what was happening to me at the hands of the gang all capitalised on it, including Janet Mitchell, an engineer at Westland with whom I used to play when I was young. See previous posts…
Heseltine was from Swansea and the first Commons seat that he held had been in Devon, so like Peyton, Heseltine knew about Mr Thrope and Mr Thrope’s links to Dafydd and co in Wales.
Peyton served as Parliamentary Secretary to Richard Wood and Frederick Erroll, the Ministers of Power, 1962-64. There will have been links to the Profumo Affair there because the whole Gov’t was embroiled…
Peyton remained Opposition Spokesman on power until 1966.
Peyton was in office when the Mersey Docks and Harbour Board collapsed; he privatised British Rail’s travel agency, Thomas Cook & Son in 1972; and made helmets compulsory for motorcyclists.
Peyton became Shadow Leader of the Commons in Opposition. Peyton was Shadow Minister for Agriculture in Thatcher’s Shadow Cabinet and was offered the position of Minister of Transport after Thatcher’s 1979 victory, but refused to return to his old office and became the only member of the Shadow Cabinet not to secure a Ministerial position in the new Gov’t.
Peyton stood down from the Commons at the 1983 General Election. He was created a life peer on 5 October 1983. That will have been to do with whatever happened at UCNW which was as consequence of Dafydd and Gwynne. Something big happened in about 1982 although I haven’t found out what precisely – I suspect that it was the death of a student – but it was the reason for a spate of gongs for those Who Knew.
Peyton was Chairman of the British subsidiary of Texas Instruments, 1974-90. He also held positions with the London and Manchester Assurance Company, Trusthouse Forte and British Alcan Aluminium, of which he was Chairman, 1987-91. British Aluminium owned a site at Dolgarrog in Gwynedd but closed it in 2002.
Peyton was Treasurer of the Zoological Society of London, 1984-91. So Peyton the Monday Clubbing industrialist took up zoology in the year that I began sharing a house with zoology students at UCNW, one of whom, Anne Vernon, was killed by the gang in 1986. Ronnie Waterhouse had an interest in zoology as well, but I think that Ronnie’s involvement with the London Zoo might have begun before I made friends with zoologists. Before I arrived at UCNW, Dafydd and the gang nearly destroyed the life of Dr Bill Hemming, one of the lecturers in the Dept of Zoology at UCNW. See previous posts.
Peyton wrote a biography of Solly Zuckerman in 2001, Solly friend of Ronnie Waterhouse that is, Solly who was one of the head honchos at the London Zoo… See previous posts.
Peyton was survived by his second wife, Mary and his daughter and surviving son from his first marriage.
Peyton’s obituary was published in ‘The Guardian’ in Nov 2006 and was written by John Biffen, the Tory MP for Oswestry and then North Shropshire 1961-97. Dafydd and John Allen’s business extended as far as Biffen’s constituency. Not only did the ring in Shropshire have links to Dafydd’s gang anyway, but John Allen established a children’s home in the county. The family seat of Lord Harlech, the Ormsby-Gores, is near Oswestry and the number of members of that family who, since David Ormsby-Gore – Biffen’s predecessor in the seat – served as the British Ambassador to the US when J.F. Kennedy was President, have died young or in traumatic/violent circumstances suggests that some nasty people have a big problem with them. Francis Ormsby-Gore, who lived on his farm near Harlech rather than at Oswestry, certainly had all the hallmarks of being under attack from the gang. See previous posts eg. ’95 Glorious Years!’
John Biffen went to school with my father and grew up on a farm about three miles away from my grandparents house where I spent my teenage years; the Biffen’s farm was about half a mile down the road from my other grandparents house and my aunties as well. John Biffen’s parents were still living at the farm when Biffen was in Thatch’s Cabinet. Biffen’s parents lived in Tom King’s constituency, the King who knew relatives of mine and who was involved in much skulduggery in the attempts to shaft Brown, me and my friends. Brown and my friends also grew up in King’s constituency and still had families living there.
Biffen was Lord President of the Council, which therefore meant that he was the visitor for UCNW, April 1982-11 June 1983. Which is certainly interesting, because it was during that time that Brown began receiving murder threats when he was at Aston University, was held hostage in his room by the man who sent the murder threats while the man trashed his room and told Brown that he’d be back again. My tutor at UCNW, Adrian Bell, told me that things like that don’t happen, wouldn’t let me in his room again and ordered me to see Dr D.G.E. Wood, Dafydd’s mate in the Student Health Centre, who ignored what was happening to Brown as well. Brown graduated in May 1983 and moved in with me because it was far too dangerous for him to stay in Birmingham. By then we were being seriously hassled by weird people whom I now know to have been undercover officers. See previous posts.
Biffen is dead, so I wonder if Lord Tom King can explain what was happening at the time?
John Biffen was a paid up member of the Thatcher fan club for a while but then fell out with her. See previous posts eg. ‘A Local Boy Made Good?’ for further info on Biffen.
Peyton’s obituary in the Indie mentioned that he was insulting to Ted Heath, that Heath didn’t like him, that ‘Peyton was never a respecter of persons, and he would not move a millimetre off his chosen course to procure advancement, or even respect’ and that ‘it was solely the advocacy of William Whitelaw that got him a job in government’ when Heath was elected PM. Willie Whitelaw knew all about Gwynne and Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring back to the time of Lord Mountbatten, the gay spies in the Admiralty and of course Profumo. Whitelaw covered up for that lot for years in numerous roles, including as Home Secretary, Chairman of the Conservative Party, Lord President of the Council and Deputy PM (see previous posts) and he will have known whatever Peyton’s former boss Nigel Birch was doing with Dafydd’s gang as well. Willie will have known that Heath’s personal friend and Top Doc Sir Brian Warren, as well as Warren’s Top Doc wife and their colleagues were running the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See post ‘Uncle Harry’s Friends…’.
Willie had to do a lot of favours for people who had the dirt of Dafydd and Gwynne, when Thatch renegaded on her promise to establish S4C, Willie was visited by a delegation of three Welsh language activists, all mates of Dafydd and Gwynne’s, who reminded Willie of a few things. There was an immediate U turn and S4C was given the go-ahead. One of the three who visited Willie was Alwyn Roberts, a Gwynedd County Councillor and a PVC at UCNW (see previous posts eg. ‘Meet The Gwerin!’) – Willie served as Lord President of the Council, which brought with it the role of visitor to UCNW, so he knew what Alwyn and his mates were up to – and another was Gwilym Williams, the Bishop of Bangor and the Archbishop of Wales. Willie wasn’t going to argue. See post ‘A Bit More Paleontology’.
The obituary noted that many people were puzzled by Peyton’s sudden interest in zoology in 1984.

Leslie and Harold’s sister and two other brothers were all lawyers.
George Carman QC was based in Chambers in Manchester and worked on the Northern Circuit until he relocated to London after successfully defending Mr Thrope.
Geraint Morgan QC, the Tory MP for Denbigh, 1959-83, practised as a barrister and Crown Court Recorder on the Northern Circuit, which was unusual for a Welsh speaking lawyer living in Wales and having been educated at Aberystwyth University, although Morgan did study at Trinity Hall, Cambridge and London University as well. The roads between Denbigh and Manchester and the surrounding area weren’t very good then either.
The Nuffield Foundation is a charitable trust established in 1943 by William Morris, Lord Nuffield, the founder of Morris Motors Ltd. Morris also founded the Nuffield Trust and Nuffield College, Oxford. He took his title from the village of Nuffield in Oxfordshire, where he lived. William Morris was raised to the peerage as a Viscount after he was raised to the peerage as a Baron.
In May 1938 a serial blackmailer, Patrick Tuellman, tried to kidnap Morris for a £100,000 ransom. But Tuellman had an accomplice who betrayed his plan to Oxford City Police. The force briefed Morris and planned to catch Tuellman in the attempt. Morris took a keen interest in the preparations and insisted on attending every meeting. On 28 May police ambushed Tuellman in Cowley in his car. Officers found him to be in possession of two automatic pistols, ammunition and items of disguise. Birmingham Assizes tried Tuellman and on 22 July 1938 convicted him. He served seven years’ penal servitude.
How much of that bit of Lord Nuffield’s biography we can believe I am not sure.
The Nuffield Trust, formerly the Nuffield Provincial Hospitals Trust is registered with the Charity Commission and is a company limited by guarantee registered in England. The Patron is the Princess Snap, Anne, Princess Royal. The Chief Executive of the Trust is Nigel Edwards, expert adviser with KPMG’s Global Centre of Excellence for Health and Life Sciences and a Senior Fellow at the King’s Fund. The Chair of the Board is Andy McKeon.
Readers may remember that in a previous post, I mentioned that my Tory activist grandfather went into the Nuffield Hospital in Taunton in the mid-late 1970s, after he had a stroke to give my gran a rest and uncovered a prostitution racket being run by the Angels there. He made a complaint, demanded to phone the police and two Top Docs contacted his relatives and told them that they would certify him if the complaint wasn’t dropped immediately; they insisted that he should leave the hospital immediately but still kept the money that he had paid in advance for his planned stay. We were later told that the prostitution racket at the Nuffield in Taunton had been going on for ages.
Ah the doctors they are cheating, lying, swindling, criminal bastards.
Dafydd used to hold clinics at the Grosvenor Nuffield Hospital in Chester. Carlo’s friend the Duke of Westminster, Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor, was a Committee member of the Nuffield Hospitals from 1995 until his death in 2016. The Duke was President of the City of Chester Conservative Association while Sir Peter Morrison was the constituency MP. The Duke had many interests, but particularly matters agriculture and drug/alcohol abuse and of course the welfare of children… See previous posts.
Jack Butterworth was of course a managing Trustee of the Nuffield Foundation, so the ‘improvement’ of the hospital at Hatton by Doris will have been another dodgy deal brought to the world by Jack Butterworth, friend of the Westminster Paedophile Ring.
Doris’s efforts at Hatton – the only account that I can find of them is one stating that through gentle persuasion, Doris encouraged volunteers onto the wards, so Hatton was obviously given a wide berth then a la Denbigh – led to Doris being appointed as Chair of the National Association of Voluntary Help Organisers. Doris was also President of The Women’s Council, ‘which promotes Friendship between women of Asian countries and the UK and improves the care of children with disability and their families within their own communities in Asia’. Doris has made a significant contribution to Warwick’s philanthropic endeavours. She has been a constant supporter of fund raising initiatives since the University’s outset.
Doris was a Director of the Independent Schools Council, as well as a governor of a number of private schools.
Jack and Doris’s daughter is Anna Elizabeth Blackstock Walker (born 1951).
Walker became Chair of the Office of Rail Regulation on 5 July 2009. In this role, Walker was the IRG-Rail Chair for 2013; the members of IRG-Rail consist of the independent Regulatory Bodies of twenty-one countries inside and outside the European Union. She stepped down from this role in 2015. Anna Walker has been a member of Consumer Focus since 1 October 2008.
Now this is what I am more interested in:
Anna Walker, the daughter of a man in public life who was participating in serious corruption in HE, in healthcare and in civic life involving Gov’t and industry and who was a friend of the man who facilitated the Westminster Paedophile Ring and protected Top Docs and other NHS and Social Services professionals in north Wales perpetrating organised abuse and associated serious crime, served as the Chief Executive of the Healthcare Commission, April 2004 – March 2009. In March 2009 the Commission was abolished and its functions in England were broadly subsumed by the Care Quality Commission.
In 2005, the Heathcare Commission published a Report following an inspection of the mental health services run by the NW Wales NHS Trust. There was quite a long delay between the inspection and the publication of the Report. The inspection had been carried out by the Commission for Health Improvement, the organisation which preceded the Healthcare Commission. By that time, that the CHI conducted the inspection, the ‘services’ run by the NW Wales NHS Trust were in meltdown. There had been numerous deaths of patients, including some on the wards of the Hergest Unit. I had been arrested on the grounds of the perjury of NHS staff and another patient had killed himself in Altcourse Prison after he too was arrested and charged after staff lied. I and a number of other patients had made complaints about staff violence, none of which were investigated. The same staff were named repeatedly by patients as having assaulted them. A number of patients and relatives had written to AMs, MPs and the Secretary of State for Wales. Patients were also consulting lawyers
The NW NHS Trust at the time had the highest suicide rate among women of any area in England or Wales except for Camden.
I was told the other day that the Hergest Unit was assessed as being the most dangerous psych unit in the UK for five years in succession.
When the CHI visit was announced, I and at least two other patients met with the inspector – an Angel wearing a name badge – and told her of our experiences. We found out months later that two staff whistleblowers had also met with the inspector and told her in no uncertain terms that the Hergest Unit was dangerous, that patients who complained were being prosecuted on what the whistleblowers suspected was fabricated evidence, that the senior managers of the Trust were not investigating complaints and that their statements about the ‘services’ on offer and the quality of those services could not be believed.
The staff of the Hergest Unit and the staff of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team hated each other so much that they refused to speak to each other.
The subsequent Report, many many months later, from the Healthcare Commission re the mental health services provided by the NW Wales Trust was a wonder to behold. It praised the ‘excellent’ relationship and joint working between the Hergest Unit and the Community Mental Health Teams. It talked of caring compassionate staff and the high levels of patient satisfaction. It talked of the transparent no-blame culture that prevailed at the Trust, enabling staff to raise concerns to which the Trust then responded.
One of the patients who met with the CHI inspector commented that reading this Report ‘is like reading about a completely different hospital’. They asked for an appointment with the Healthcare Commission but were told that the Report had now been completed and there would be no further discussion. I was told the same when I contacted them. The two staff whistleblowers were shocked at the contents of the Report, because they claimed that they had made it clear to the CHI that the ‘services’ were dangerous, abusive and that what was being claimed by senior managers at the Trust was simply untrue.
Brown quipped at the time that the contents of the Report will have been a result of the quality of the dinner to which Alun Davies treated the inspector. It was worse than that. The contents of the Report were a result of the Chief Exec of the Healthcare Commission being the daughter of the friend of the man who in a previous generation had concealed the crimes of the mental health services in north Wales. The people causing the havoc at the NW Wales NHS Trust in 2005 were the juniors of or the children of the crowd whom Crossman protected. In the case of some people in public life in north Wales, they were the same people.
The whitewashing of a dangerous, troubled Trust run by white collar criminals steeped in corruption is worthy of scrutiny. The CHI was established by the Health Act 1999. It was ‘the first organisation ever to assess the clinical performance of NHS hospitals in England’ and it was a ‘non-departmental public body sponsored by the Dept of Health, 2001-04. It’s Chair was Top Doc Dame Deirdre Hine.
Deirdre trained at the Welsh National School of Medicine in Cardiff, graduating in 1961. Deirdre worked as a Top Doc at Cardiff’s Royal Infirmary. She worked with Sir William Asscher in Cardiff, who was concealing the crimes of George Thomas and Dafydd’s gang, as was the whole of the Cardiff medical scene. Asscher was headhunted to become Dean of St George’s in 1988, after the previous Dean was deposed in the wake of Professor Oliver Brooke being jailed. Asscher went to St George’s to conceal Ollie’s colleagues, the Mr Bigs of the Westminster Paedophile Ring, who were still busy there. Tony Francis worked as a medical student and junior doc at Cardiff Royal Infirmary.
Deirdre trained in public health medicine, becoming a specialist in community medicine in 1974. Public health docs and ‘community medicine’ practitioners are always in an excellent position to conceal organised abuse because they have responsibilities across different specialities, they have feet in many camps and they work with other institutions that will also be colluding eg. schools, colleges, social services, prisons etc. Previous posts eg. ‘Houseparty’ and ‘And Death Shall Have No Dominion’ explained how the roots of public health medicine as a discipline are to be found among the Docs who concealed abuse, including the Westminster Paedophile Ring. It was Dafydd’s mate Professor Jerry Morris who designed and established the course at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine for public health specialists ie. the community physicians.
Like psychiatry, public health is a low status speciality and a lot of Docs don’t take it seriously. Like psychiatry, this is probably because they know what is involved and they don’t want to be party to it, which, as with psychiatry, leaves the field wide open to the unscrupulous and incompetent.
Deirdre became a community physician in 1974, the year before the Children’s Act 1975 ensured that hundreds of kids were sent into the hands of Dafydd’s gang and gangs linked to his. The Children Act 1975 was of course the work of Leo Abse, who was George Thomas’s close friend and who’s brothers Danne and Wilfred were two Docs who were facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Leo was given a free reign by Jim Callaghan, when Callaghan was Home Secretary. Callaghan was an MP for Cardiff constituencies, 1945-87. Before he was ever elected, Callaghan had got to know Harold Laski at the LSE, the man who mentored Uncle Harry’s brother-in-law Ralph, Lady Juliet Bingley and that generation of LSE grads/staff who capitalised on Richard Crossman’s links with them all and on their knowledge of Crossman’s role in the Westminster Paedophile Ring.
Deirdre became Principal Medical Officer for the Welsh Office in 1984, which was the year that I complained about Gwynne and wrote to the GMC. In 1984, George Thomas was hospitalised with an STI and lies were told to the press by Leo Abse to conceal this, backed up by the Top Docs. The Top Doc ignoring all complaints about Dafydd, no matter how serious, was Duncan Egdell, the community physician for Clwyd Health Authority. Egdell’s equivalent in Gwynedd was also ignoring complaints; he made the excuse that it was Egdell’s responsibility to investigate because Dafydd’s contract was held by Clwyd. Complaints were simply ignored and it was the community physicians directly responsible for that; patients with concerns were told to write to them…
Deirdre knew Egdell – as well as everyone else – and she knew just how serious the criminality which was ignored was. Deirdre was well rewarded with colluding; in 1985 she was appointed Deputy Chief Medical Officer of Wales. 1985 was the year that I contacted Keith Best at the Welsh Office. It was also the year that Mary Wynch won her appeal to the Master of the Rolls and appeared in the London-based broadsheets, making legal history. Deirdre became Chief Medical Officer for Wales in 1990, the year following Bluglass’s Welsh Office-organised cover-up of my complaint. By 1990, Deirde had overseen a great deal of very serious crime and continued to do so as Andrew Park, the bent lawyer from the Welsh Office and Ron Evans conspired with Dafydd, Tony Francis et al to frame and imprison me…
Thus Deirdre arrived with an impeccable background as the Chair of the CHI.
The Chief Exec of the CHI was Dr Peter Homa. Homa started work in the NHS in 1979 as a hospital porter, after which he commenced the NHS National Management Training Scheme in London in 1981. Peter Homa was Chief Executive at Leicester Royal Infirmary in 1989, when it was one of two national pilot hospitals ‘to achieve significant improvement in both the quality and efficiency of patient care’. While the whole of the Leicester medical profession concealed the ring involving Greville and Frank Beck… Homa was appointed a CBE in the Lilibet’s Birthday Honours in 2000 for ‘contributions to the health service’, just a few months after the Waterhouse Report was published.
The CHI was abolished on 31 March 2004 and replaced by the Healthcare Commission, Chaired by Jack Butterworth’s daughter. The glowing Report about the butchers and sex offenders of the NW Wales NHS Trust was then written. Whether they even looked at the notes compiled by the stooge of an inspector sent by Deirdre months previously I do not know. I and the others who gave evidence to the stooge remember the inexplicable length of time between the inspection and the Report and how no-one could explain what the delay was.
Homa was appointed as the first Chief Executive of the Healthcare Commission but resigned from the post in April 2003, just weeks after being appointed, at the request of Sir Ian Kennedy, who had been appointed as shadow Chairman of the Healthcare Commission in Dec 2002. Deirdre was traumatised at the resignation:
|I am saddened and concerned to learn that Peter Homa is not now to take up his post as chief inspector of the Commission for Healthcare Audit and Inspection, to which he was appointed only weeks ago.
“It is a serious setback for CHAI [the original acronym for the Healthcare Commission] to have lost a chief officer of Peter’s calibre at this early stage of its life.
“I have had the privilege of working with Peter as my chief executive for the past three and a half years.
“During that time we have broken new ground in establishing, for the first time, a body to which the NHS is required to account for the quality of the service it provides to patients.
“It is my view, and that of the CHI commissioners, that Peter’s personal qualities of leadership and integrity and his unrivalled experience and expertise in the management of NHS organisations, and of CHI, made him the obvious and ideal choice for the chief inspector post in CHAI.
“We feel that he will be very difficult to replace in this role. He remains the much admired and respected Chief Executive of CHI.”
Dr Gill Morgan of the NHS Confederation, which represents health service managers, said: “Peter Homa made a major contribution to NHS management and we are sad to see him go. We hope he will continue to contribute to the service and that his talents won’t be lost.”
She added: “It is important that momentum will be maintained and we hope that this setback will not interrupt the transition to the new organisation at this crucial stage.”
Dame Gill Morgan was Permanent Secretary to the Welsh Gov’t, 2008-12. Morgan was Chief Executive of North and East Devon Health Authority at the turn of the millennium, based in Exeter where her husband was a teacher at Exeter School. She has also been Director of Public Health for Leicestershire…Morgan was President of the Institute of Health Services Management in 1997-98 and is a past President of the International Hospital Federation. From 2002 to 2008 Morgan was Chief Exec of the NHS Confederation. Gill Morgan retired on 31 August 2012.
Morgan served on a large number of national committees and working groups and was a member of the NHS Stakeholder Forum. Morgan was also one of the three members of the review team led by Sir Jeremy Beecham set up in 2006 to advise the Welsh Assembly Gov’t on the reform of public services in Wales. See previous posts.
GILLIAN MORGAN: AT THE CENTRE OF THE ROT WHEN I WAS THREATENED AT GUN POINT, AS WAS ANOTHER WITNESS.
CHAI is scheduled to start work in April next year. It will be responsible for carrying out inspections and ensuring standards are being maintained in NHS organisations across England and Wales.
It will take over the work of CHI, the Mental Health Act Commission, the National Care Standards Commission and some of the work carried out by the Audit Commission.
[Miranda abolished the Mental Health Act Commission, maintaining that it would be replaced by a more robust body. I had er written to a few people about the MHAC failing to protect patients from abusive practitioners…I’m sorry to say now that some of those e mails were written using my Bangor University PhD student e mail account. It will have been noticed. Particularly because my e mails were being hacked and read by the security services anyway.]
Sir Ian was appointed shadow chairman of CHAI in December last year.
Peter Homa went on to become Chief Executive of St George’s Healthcare NHS Trust in November 2003. He was an assessor in the Mid-Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust Public Inquiry. Homa was Chief Executive of Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust, 2006-17.
Sir Ian Kennedy was said to have had ‘a clash of personality’ with Peter Homa and that’s why Homa had to go. Kennedy, when he gave Homa the boot, had just finished Chairing the Inquiry into the Bristol Heart Surgery Scandal, which resulted in the damning of one of the surgeons, James Wisheart. Readers might remember that after I blogged about that, I received an e mail from Andy Wisheart, James’s son, telling me that his dad had been unfairly scapegoated. I left a comment on the blog telling readers this and interestingly enough, I mentioned the way that Merfyn was set up and blamed and stated that if Andy or anyone else wanted to write a piece for the blog, or send me info re any scapegoating process, I would definitely put it up on the blog.
Miranda: You saw my comments to Lord Patel, your stooge whom you installed as Chair of the Mental Health Act Commission, you read my references to the deaths in north Wales and the framing of patients. You knew that I had copies of those documents demonstrating that Patel’s staff lied to patients and that the MHAC were concealing serious organised crime. You are sick Miranda, seriously twisted, as well as being a sociopath.
I feel the hand of history upon my shoulder! Pity about Nerys AND all the others.
War Crimes re Iraq?? What about War Crimes In Wales?
Ian Kennedy was appointed as Chairman of the shadow Healthcare Commission in Dec 2002. Which was just a few weeks after I had been charged with ‘threatening to kill Alun Davies’ after Angels and others perjured themselves. I’ve got a copy of the memo written by Patricia Gaskell the Ysbyty Gwynedd solicitor Miranda: ‘more nurses down the police station to complain about [me] please’.
In 2005, when Anna Walker, Butterworth’s daughter, drafted that ludicrous Report, Dafydd and Lucille, who’s criminality Butterworth’s friend Crossman concealed, were running the charidee which had been commissioned by the NW Wales NHS Trust to provide ‘substance abuse’ services.
Anna’s mum Doris Butterworth was of course the President of the Royal College of Midwives when girls and women with inconvenient pregnancies were banged up in the North Wales Hospital Denbigh and their babies disappeared. Some of those women are still alive and furthermore Anna, I knew one of them. Although you probably knew that I was friendly with that particular witness anyway, so effective are the jungle drums. She was found dead in her house just after I was forced out of my teaching job and charged with ‘threatening to kill Alun Davies’.
Brown’s mum was found dead in her house in 2005…
Bangor University is responsible for training social workers, Angels and clin psychs and had to work with the NW Wales NHS Trust/Social Services with regard to this. The Gwerin and paedophiles’ friends had declared war on Merfyn by 2005 and were openly stating that they would force him out of his job as VC. The biggest problems were among the School of Education who employed former teachers in north Wales and the Schools of the University who employed NHS staff and former NHS staff.
Months after Patricia Gaskell wrote that memo requesting more Angels down the police station to tell lies about me please, Dee Jones, a serially sacked Angel from Liverpool and Meri Huws, a former Gwynedd social worker who was by then Head of Lifelong Learning at Bangor University, were given a big research grant to work in collaboration with Patricia Gaskell, who by then had been appointed as Chief Exec of the Welsh Risk Pool, the body set up by the Welsh Gov’t to ‘assess’ claims from patients who were suing the NHS. I had just begun legal action against the NW Wales NHS Trust. The Chairman of the Welsh Risk Pool was Gren Kershaw, who had previously been the Chief Exec of the NE Wales NHS Trust, which ran the lethal Ysbyty Glan Clwyd. Prior to that, Gren had been an NHS manager at Jimmy Savile Central in Leeds. See previous posts.
After I finished my PhD, Dee Jones asked me to plant damaging stories in the media about Merfyn. Dee later sued Bangor University, by using her knowledge of what had happened to me at the hands of the gang and a corrupt UCU rep, Eileen Tilley, who also hated Merfyn and was doing deals with others who were trying to force Merfyn out, including those in the NHS. Dee now runs an ‘executive coaching agency’ and flogs her expertise to the NHS… See post ‘Little Shop Of Horrors’.
By the time that I met with the inspector from the CHI, I had been forced out of school teaching as a result of libellous allegations made to my former employer by staff of the mental health services. See post ‘Thought For The Day’. Serious charges brought against me by the Trust had resulted in a trial collapsing on the first day. More unsubstantiated allegations were then made about me in an attempt to have my name removed from the teaching register. My name was cleared by a junior Gov’t Minister who is a friend of Merfyn’s and a former student of Warwick University who took part in those Events and found the documents demonstrating that Anne Walker’s dad had been a naughty boy…
There was only one solution! Appoint Jack Butterworth’s daughter as CEO of the Healthcare Commission in the wake of an inspection of the NW Wales NHS Trust conducted by Deirdre and get Anna Walker, nee Butterworth, to write the Report!
Then kill Merfyn’s wife.
The north Wales NHS was at war with Merfyn by the time that Walker was appointed CEO of the Healthcare Commission.
Andy Wisheart: My offer stands re a piece about your father on this blog. This is dreadful, your father was judged by a thoroughly rotten man, Ian Kennedy, who was doing the work of another thoroughly rotten man, Miranda, who removed a CEO of a public body to replace him with the daughter of Jack Butterworth, who’s wrongdoing had been exposed by Merfyn and his friends years ago, to enable the daughter of Butterworth to conceal the criminal activity of a bunch of gangsters who were after Merfyn’s blood because he had given me a place to do a PhD. Then they killed his wife.
Anna Walker went to Oxford High School and then Benenden. Dr Adrianne Reveley went to Benenden, as did Ma’am Darling’s children. Adrianne Reveley was a corrupt psychiatrist who was networked into Dafydd’s circle, whom the Welsh Gov’t legal services requested carry out an Expert report on me when my lawyers began legal action against the NHS some years ago. See post ‘Dr Adrianne Reveley – A Loving Tribute’ for an account of mine and Brown’s adventure with Adrianne and for the background on Adrianne and her many old friends from Benenden, a school which has recently been the subject of allegations that pupils were abused and that a Posh People’s ring was in operation at the school. Adrienne died not so long ago, very quickly, from a condition that usually takes many years to kill someone. But then she was rash enough to be treated in King’s College Hospital by her colleagues who were concealing serious organised crime.
One of Adrianne’s sons is a lawyer in the Civil Service, the other one is a neuropsychologist. Adrianne’s husband is a psychiatrist in Leicester, where there was a ring with close links to Dafydd’s gang, which involved the Labour politician Lord Greville Janner.
Anna Walker attended Bryn Mawr College in the US, a women’s liberal arts college in Pennsylvania with strong links to north Wales, some of the founders of Bryn Mawr having come from Gwynedd. Bryn Mawr was originally a Quaker College. Lord Jack Butterworth was entering into dodgy deals with American industrialists, so Anne no doubt received a warm welcome in the US.
After Bryn Mawr, Anna went to Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford, alumni of which include Benazir Bhutto, Michael Gove, Nigella Lawson (who’s dad knew about that ring in Leicestershire), Josie Long and Ann Widdecombe (who knew about the Westminster Paedophile Ring as well as Dafydd’s gang through her close links with the Anglesey Conservatives).
Anna Walker worked for the British Council, 1972-73, beginning her post the year after her dad’s mate Lord John Fulton had stepped down as Chairman of the British Council. Anna worked as a civil servant, 1975-94, mostly in the DTI. So Anna will have known all about the Westland Crisis in which the DTI played the starring roles. Anne will also have been at the DTI when Sir Peter Morrison was a Minister there, Sept 1985-Sept 1986. My house-mate Anne Vernon was killed by the gang in April 1986.
Anna Walker was Deputy Director-General, Oftel, 1994-97. Then Anna was Director-General for Energy at the DTI, 1998-2001; Mandy was Secretary of State for the DTI during 1998. Do you know Ron Evans’s daughter by any chance Anna? Perhaps you sought a bit of advice from her when you had to conceal the legacy of her dad while you did your bit at the Healthcare Commission. Walker was Director-General for Rural Affairs at the Dept for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, 2001-03, so there would have been plenty of scope for Anna to continue her father’s good work in rural areas such as Wales and Somerset in that role. Then in 2004 Anna was need at the Healthcare Commission, where she remained until 2009. During which time Brown’s mum told us anecdotes about her emergency NHS alarm never being responded to and then she was found dead… The friend of mine from school who found Brown’s mum’s body then had a great deal of difficulty with Top Docs herself…
Readers will remember the catalogue of disaster that were the UK’s health services while Anne was at the Healthcare Commission and how many very troubled Trusts were, like the NW Wales NHS Trust, given glowing reports after inspections. The bombs began exploding at the centre of excellence that is St George’s Hospital when Anna was in post.
In 2009 it was a new challenge for Anna when she was appointed as Chair of the Office of Rail Regulation, where she remained until 2015. That went well didn’t it Anna. Anna returned to that area where she made her most valuable contribution, health, in 2009, when she became Chair of Young Epilepsy, a post she held until 2016.
Anna’s dad really did not like Merfyn and Merfyn’s friend who exposed Anna’s dad’s corruption and his secret files on people.
Anna was CEO of the Healthcare Commission when NHS staff declared that they would hound Merfyn out of his job and when his wife died at the hands of Dafydd’s mates. Miranda was PM when Jack Butterworth’s daughter was appointed to lead the Healthcare Commission and Gordon was PM when Nerys died. Jack Straw’s wife was a Civil Service mandarin in the Dept of Health.
Anna Walker is married to Timothy Edward Hanson Walker (born 27 July 1945), a retired mandarin. He served as Director General of the Immigration and Nationality Directorate, 1995-98 and Director General of the Health and Safety Executive, 2000-05. From 2006 to 2012, Timothy Walker was the Third Church Estates Commissioner, one of the most senior lay people in the Church of England. Timothy’s record almost equals that of Anna’s…
In 1969, Tim Walker married Judith Mann; she died in 1976. Together they had one daughter. In 1983, he married Anna. Together they have two daughters.
In 1998, Timothy was appointed a CB in recognition of his service as Director-General of the Immigration and Nationality Directorate. Did Lilibet actually know what was happening at the Home Office re immigration at the time?
Jack, Anna and Timothy, I can only echo what F used to yell at the thugs and accomplices of Dafydd’s gang when they did the most appalling things to him: I suggest that you read your New Testament.
One person who knew the ins and outs of the sordid deals between Anna’s dad, Richard Crossman, Harold Wilson and Dafydd and Gwynne was of course Marcia Williams aka Lady Falkender, who had that much observed ‘huge power’ over Harold Wilson and who was given a peerage when Wilson resigned ‘for reasons that no-one understood’, although Marcia never managed to speak in the Lords. Marcia can no longer give us the full story, although I provided as much of it as I could a couple of weeks ago. Because about two weeks ago Marcia died, but her death was only made public some three days ago.
