The Science of Animal Behaviour

My post ‘The Mrs Mills Experience’ mentioned that Baroness Lena Jeger, one of the Labour Party’s many Wimmin’s Champs who was so helpful to Dafydd et al for so many years, began her rise to prominence as one who battled for wimmin and children as Vice-President of the NUS. Lady Lena joined the Civil Service – and the security services – in 1936, so she will have been Vice-President of the NUS at some point before that. I think that Lena may have been Vice-President at some time during the years that Sir Frederick Lincoln Ralphs was President of the NUS, 1934-36.

Sir Frederick Lincoln Ralphs (17 February 1909 – 16 October 1978) was born in Wellington, Shropshire into a Methodist family who had been victimised for their involvement with trade unions. My posts ‘There’s Methodism In This Madness’ and ‘Come, Friendly Bombs’ discussed how closely intertwined many Methodists were with Dafydd’s gang and the wider Westminster Paedophile Ring, a connection which was helped considerably by the child abuser George Thomas being for years the most prominent Methodist in Britain and Harold Wilson’s wife Mary being from a Congregationalist family. Thatch of course was brought up in the Methodist Church, although in later life she rather uncomfortably joined the Anglican Church, what with that still being the Tory Party at prayer and Methodism having dangerously close links to socialism. Thatch maintained that their shared Methodism was the basis of her friendship with George Thomas and that this overcame their political differences.

Like George Thomas, Ralphs was a lay preacher. He also served as President of the National Sunday School Union.

The family seats of two aristocrats who were deeply involved with the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal and the Westminster Paedophile Ring – Lord Lloyd Kenyon and Lord Harlech – were in Shropshire. See previous posts. After John Allen had established his children’s homes in north Wales, he opened homes in Shropshire and Cheshire as well. In the 1990s, a major investigation into organised abuse in children’s homes and other institutions for young people resulted in a number of care staff and teachers from Shropshire and Cheshire going to prison. Ralph Morris, the Headmaster of Castle Hill School in Shropshire who was convicted of abuse, was a well-known public figure in Ludlow. Ralph was pals with people linked with other institutions who exchanged staff with children’s homes in north Wales. The context of the case of Ralph Morris, as with those of Keith Laverack, Frank Beck and even Peter Howarth, suggests that although these men almost certainly were child abusers, they had been members of much bigger rings but for some reason they had been very publicly denounced as Vile Perverts and jailed for years while many more of those who joined in the party with them were never named, yet alone charged. See previous posts.

In 2001, Jonathan King was jailed for the sexual abuse of boys of 14 and 15 in the 1980s. He was universally denounced as a Vile Pervert. Jonathan King was a graduate of Trinity College, Cambridge and maintained that the judge who presided over his trial was known to him from his student days and had done the very same thing for which King was jailed. King angrily stated that he could name dozens of well-known people who had sex with both boys and girls of 14 and 15 in the 1970s and 80s as he and allegedly the judge did, yet none of them had been investigated and charged. King wrote and performed in a musical, Vile Pervert, in which he sought to expose the hypocrisy surrounding his case.

Jonathan King's Vile Pervert The Musical: Amazon.co.uk: Music

I am of the opinion that Jonathan King is a wally, but I believe him on this matter. Furthermore, Trinity College, Cambridge was the centre of a gay sex ring; the shenanigans became world famous as a result of the Cambridge Spies, some of whom were part of what was obviously a ring. Sir Anthony Blunt wasn’t publicly named as one of the Cambridge spies until 1979 and it was only much more recently that Blunt has been named as one of the elite members of the paedophile ring that was based at the Kincora Boys’ Home in Belfast. Lord Louis Mountbatten is another who has been named as being involved with the abuse of boys at Kincora. See previous posts.

One wonders why Jonathan King was investigated and charged when no-one else was, because there was definitely a problem, in Cambridge and in showbiz…

Jonathan King went to school in Seaford, East Sussex – there was a ring in East Sussex which went into partnership with Dafydd’s gang in the 1960s – and Oundle School, which is where Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, the centre of the Welsh Bloomsbury Group who lived at Llanfrothen (see previous posts eg. ‘The Village’, ‘The Vermin Club’ and ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’), went to school, as did many others who colluded with Dafydd and linked gangs. See previous posts. King also attended Charterhouse School in Surrey, where he played with a local band. Patient F who was fitted up in approx 1986 in north Wales for drugs offences as well as for arson and then substantially destroyed by Dafydd and the gang (see previous posts), grew up in Surrey and is of a similar age to King. F didn’t go to Charterhouse, he went to different independent schools in Surrey, but I’m fairly sure that F’s brother went to Charterhouse. F and his brother are of the same vintage as King and F hung around on the hippy and rock scene.

Jonathan King was hobnobbing with Brian Epstein in June 1964, before King went to Cambridge. Epstein was networked with Dafydd’s associates and died when the Beatles were staying in Bangor, in circumstances which raise questions. See eg. post ‘Bernard Levin And Jonathan Miller Talk Bollocks’.

King was a big figure in the music industry throughout the latter half of the 1960s onwards until he was jailed. He worked with a great many people who were known to be sexually exploiting young people such as Jimmy Savile, as well as people whom it is now known were sexually exploited themselves by their managers and others eg. the Bay City Rollers. See post ‘Remember Girls – Never Get Into A Car with a Stranger!’.

King was at Trinity College, 1964-67.

Here’s someone who was at Trinity College, Cambridge, 1967-70:

  • Here’s Rab, he was Master of Trinity College, 1965-77, after he had spent many enjoyable years as Mr Tory Party, concealing the crap from the dawn of time, throughout the Profumo Affair and afterwards (see previous posts):
Rab: Carlo’s personal mentor at Cambridge
Baron Butler.jpg

Rab was the Tory MP for Saffron Walden, 1929-65, then sat in the Lords until his death in 1982. Saffron Walden is in Essex but it is one of those places sufficiently near the border of Suffolk that people in Saffron Walden have a great deal to do with Suffolk and at least in the 1980s some people who lived in Suffolk had Saffron Walden as part of their postal address.

The family seat of the Herveys is in Suffolk. John Jermyn Hervey aka Lord Bristol was famous for his drugs and rent boy excess as well as for risking his own life and other people’s by crashing helicopters and cars. Lord Bristol unsurprisingly met a sticky and untimely end despite the willingness of Top Doctors to sell him class A drugs, write helpful Court reports about him, house him in their expensive private clinics etc. However Nicholas Hervey, Lord Bristol’s brother, also met an untimely end and was found hanging in his house in Chelsea. Nicholas had not led a lifestyle anything like his brother, but he was close to Lord Bristol and knew much of what was going on. Nicholas was diagnosed with ‘schizophrenia’ after a difficult period when young and once he received Help from the Top Doctors, Nicholas never looked back. His life was wrecked by the Help and the Medication in the way that I witnessed the lives of so many destroyed in north Wales.

Dafydd’s partner in crime John Allen was based in Suffolk before he opened his first children’s home in north Wales in the late 1960s. Dr John W. Paulley, who carried out dangerous unethical ‘research’ on patients, was based in Ipswich and his wife established a clinic for people with ‘psychological difficulties’ on the basis of no experience and no qualifications in the field. I have received information from people who knew Paulley telling me that the efforts of Paulley and his wife were a cover for organised abuse. Paulley was one of those who was instrumental in the foundation of the University of Buckingham, of which Thatch became Chancellor. See previous posts.

Rab was Chancellor of the University of Essex from 1966 until his death and of Sheffield University, 1959-77.

Rab was friends with Trumpers, who lived in Cambridge during the 1960s and 70s and was involved with the Cambridgeshire Tory Party. When she was Health Minister, 1985-87, Trumpers appointed her pal Jimmy Savile to the management task force of Broadmoor Hospital (see posts ‘The Socio-Political Context Of The Mental Health Services In The 1980s’, ‘A Pretty Classy Piece Of Operation’ and ’95 Glorious Years!’).

Here’s Trumpers, communicating with Lord Tom King, who, like Trumpers, colluded with Dafydd’s gang and the Westminster Paedophile Ring (see previous posts):

Baroness Trumpington, THAT two-finger gesture and how she ...

 

Another high profile Tory and his fragrant wife have also lived in Cambridgeshire for many years and held numerous public appointments, although one of them had their career in public life briefly interrupted when he served a prison sentence for perjury:

  • Jeffrey Archer and Kevin Keegan among 44 celebrities ...

Read more about Jeffrey and the fragrant Lady Mary – including that unfortunate business of the prostitute with whom Jeffrey claimed not to have had sex dying as a result of a very well-timed car accident shortly before she was due to give evidence at Jeffrey’s trial for perjury – in my post ‘Tuppence And His Fragrant Wife’). Lady Mary committed perjury as well, but for reasons unknown she was never charged.

 

In March 1997 at Chester Crown Court, Keith Laverack, the one time Director of Cambridgeshire Social Services,  was convicted and jailed for the sexual abuse of children while he worked in children’s homes in Cheshire and Cambridgeshire between 1975 and 1987. Judge Huw Daniel presided over the trial. The charges against Laverack arose as part of an investigation into a big paedophile ring. The police had obtained an order preventing the identification of some other defendants because their identification would risk the bigger police operation. See previous posts. Daniel lifted the Court order, the others were named and WHOOPS…

Huw Daniel sabotaged that trial just after the Waterhouse Inquiry had opened and just at the time that Sir Ronnie Waterhouse suddenly decided that he needed a holiday, so he put the Inquiry on hold for a few weeks while he nipped off to Hong Kong. Where amazingly enough he met up and dined with Derry Irvine, who was also hanging around in Hong Kong. At the time of the meal, Derry was Shadow Lord Chancellor, but everyone knew that Derry would soon be Lord Chancellor because a General Election was due and no-one expected the Tories to get back in, not even the Tories.

Huw Daniel is friends with Dafydd and the gang, as was his father. See eg. post ‘Tan yn Llyn’. Daniel spent his entire career on the corrupt Chester and Wales Circuit as a barrister and then a judge. At least one innocent man – the Rev Emyr Owen of Tywyn – was jailed in 1985 because of Daniel’s lies when Daniel was a barrister. See previous posts. Daniel was looking forward to sending me to prison as well, in 2004, on the basis of what he knew was the perjury of NHS staff but the charges were suddenly withdrawn on the first day of my trial. I was later told that someone had come forward who had witnessed the plan to fit me up and threatened to go public on the abuse of patients at the Hergest Unit if my trial went ahead.

 

What I want to know is who is the Mr Big linked with the Cambridge ring whom everyone is so desperate to protect?

Sir Frederick Lincoln Ralphs family moved to Sheffield while Ralphs was young and he attended Firth Park Grammar School and the University of Sheffield. It was there that Ralphs became involved with the NUS, serving as President, 1934-36. Ralphs was also President of the International Confederation of Students, 1937-38.

Yorkshire was another location of organised abuse, which by the early 1960s had been ramped up considerably by Jimmy Savile’s activities. When Sir Frederick was busy in the NUS and with the International Confederation of Students, Cambridge University and the Cambridge Apostles were at their spying, swinging best. See previous posts.

Frederick Ralphs himself may have left Shropshire, Sheffield and the NUS long behind when he held his own positions in public life, but as I hope that I have made clear on this blog, it is keeping quiet about people one has known as well as about those who one knows which is the crucial factor. Furthermore, people in public life do get called upon to show their loyalty to those on their past stomping ground, even if they only passed through relatively briefly and didn’t return.

No doubt I really did blot my copy book when I was working at St George’s Hospital Medical School, when a Nice Young Doctor called Jimmy Shroff popped up to see me because he wanted to meet the girl that he’d been told was from Bangor who was now at St George’s, because Jimmy was from north Wales! Jimmy had a cup of tea with me and ran a long list of names from north Wales past me, all of whom I knew to be involved in the abuse of patients. He asked me if I knew Dafydd; I wasn’t massively outspoken but I certainly didn’t agree with Jimmy that Dafydd ‘was a funny little man with a beard’. I indicated that I knew of very, very big problems…

Jimmy then dashed off back to work and I never encountered him again.

I now realise that Jimmy Shroff was well aware that I knew a great deal, because he had worked as a GP trainee in Dr D.G.E. Wood’s surgery; Wood was facilitating the ring… When I wrote my post about Jimmy Shroff ‘A Network Stretching To London?’ in Nov 2016 shortly after beginning this blog, I hadn’t yet received all my documentation and I had no idea how extensive the network was. In that post I wrote:

I often wondered whether he was part of the network that were trying so hard to silence me, but he didn’t seem like one of them – he was far more competent for a start and seemed much more normal than the very obviously dysfunctional people whom I was having such trouble with. However in 2005 when I finally retrieved my full medical files I had a surprise – among the very old records was a photocopy of a letter printed on headed North Wales Hospital Denbigh paper. The quality of the photocopying was so poor that I was unable to read the signature – but the content of the letter could just about be read. It was a letter to someone else (their name could not be distinguished either) asking whether their friend had found out which department in St George’s I was working in yet. I never did get to the bottom of Jimmy Shroff’s brief visit to me because he didn’t stay working at St George’s long. I have since discovered that Jimmy Shroff died in 2003. His widow works for the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board.

Jimmy was a mate of Dr D.G.E. Wood and Dr Tony Francis and had been sent to St George’s to see what I would say about Dafydd. Jimmy Shroff was not a loony like Dafydd, he was a competent and personable doctor, but he knew what Dafydd was doing and was part of the effort to keep a lid on the criminality, which is even more terrifying than the lunacy of Dafydd himself.

After Jimmy Shroff died, obituaries appeared in the BMJ and on Europepmc.org. Europepmn.org told us that Jimmy Foden Shroff died from a pancreatic tumour on 13 November 2003 and:

Jimmy Foden Shroff grew up in Leatherhead and qualified from Barts Medical College in 1983.

Bart’s had been facilitating organised abuse for years. Professor Anthony Clare who colluded with Dafydd et al and Prof Linford Rees, a Welsh psychiatrist who knew Dafydd, held Chairs at Bart’s in the 1980s and 90s which added to the party. See previous posts.

During his undergraduate career he also obtained a BSc first class honours in biochemistry. He was profoundly interested in all aspects of medicine, and this attracted him into general practice and he completed the vocational training course, obtaining the MRCGP. At the end of this period he conceived his ambition to train in obstetrics and gynaecology. It was typical of Jimmy that he would undertake this in a thorough way, and he first undertook a number of surgical jobs and obtained the FRCS in 1990. He then went into training posts in his chosen speciality, passing the MRCOG in 1994, and he was appointed a consultant in obstetrics and gynaecology at the Tameside General Hospital in September of 2000.

Dafydd’s gang had direct links with Tameside. Glanville Owen, who on April 1984 was appointed Deputy Director of Gwynedd Social Services and remained in that post while kids in the care of Gwynedd were systematically battered, raped and trafficked, had previously worked as a senior social worker to the Assistant Director at Tameside Metropolitan Borough Council. In his evidence to the Waterhouse Inquiry, Glanville didn’t manage to explain how he managed to not notice what was happening in the children’s homes for which he was the senior manager responsible, but he did tell Ronnie that he was now in a different role and didn’t expect to continue working for the local authority for much longer. After telling Ronnie that, Glanville however found a new lease of life. By 2003, Glanville was Chief Exec of Gwynedd Community Health Council, in which role he lied to patients and refused to investigate even the most serious of complaints. When the CHCs were restructured Glanville didn’t disappear, he was recycled into the North Wales CHC. He was definitely still there as recently as 2011… See post ‘I Know Nuzzing…’

[Shroff] quickly established himself as a hardworking and conscientious gynaecologist particularly concerned with dedicating himself to the colposcopy and oncology services. With a colleague he developed the West Pennine Gynaecological Oncology Unit and rapidly established a reputation as a valuable colleague who was very much liked by patients, nursing, and midwifery staff, as well as his consultant colleagues. He was a positive and effective multidisciplinary team worker as well as leader. He was also an extremely good teacher and lectured both in the department, the postgraduate centre, and in the Greater Manchester Gynaecology Oncology Group.

Dafydd and the gang had a branch in Greater Manchester. The branch had been in existence for a long time, but it expanded when Dafydd’s mate Dr Bob Hobson relocated from the Maudsley, where Hobson had facilitated organised abuse, to Manchester University, where Hobson facilitated organised abuse. Tony Francis worked in psychiatry at Manchester University in the early 1980s before he arrived to work with Dafydd in north Wales. Sadie Francis studied medicine at Manchester, as did the insane and dangerous Dr Tony Roberts who worked at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh and then the Hergest Unit. There was also an exchange of Angels between north Wales and Manchester and during the 1990s, Angels from north Wales were being sent to Manchester University to undertake postgrad degrees, which as far as I could see no-one ever failed. Furthermore the postgrad degrees were in ‘interventions’ which were based on research frauds in which members of the gang in north Wales had participated.

One Angel who did very well out of this scam was Dr Dave Reader, who turned up in Gwynedd as the ‘student’ of one of my key workers during the Waterhouse Inquiry. Dave Reader introduced himself to me as an Angel new to north Wales who was doing a PhD. He didn’t tell me that he had been qualified for many years, had worked as a senior Angel at St George’s Hospital Medical School, knew the people traffickers there and had decided to get a job as an Angel in Gwynedd at about the same time that I left my job at St George’s and moved back to Gwyneddd.

He was an outstandingly clear thinker and wrote most effective notes with a very attractive and neat hand. As a senior house officer he had developed the technique of writing the notes with different coloured inks to emphasise different points, and his note keeping was of such a high standard that few could aspire to it. His ability to draw clear diagrams reflected a school interest in art and technical drawing that stood him in good stead.

Jimmy had a real love of life with catholic interests ranging from swimming, cycling, maintaining his own cars, do it yourself, model railways, and scouting, which initially took him to camping trips to North Wales, where he eventually made his home. He was always positive and interested, and was an extremely attractive character.

His consultant work and life were extremely fulfilling and it was a sad shock for his family, colleagues, and the service when he became unexpectedly ill in January of 2003 and a tumour was diagnosed. He bore his illness and the treatments with considerable fortitude, even when it was clear that it was advancing despite the best possible treatment.

He leaves his wife, Liz; three children; and very favourable memories among his colleagues and patients. 

This tribute to Jimmy the Friend of a Gang of Paedophiles and Traffickers, but ooh he did make such excellent notes, he even used different colours, was penned by N.G. Hodges. Those notes could well have been, like the notes of Dafydd’s other pals, written in code. When Dr Robin Jacobson of St George’s Hospital wrote in 1991 that ‘Dr Jones is a psychiatrist in his late 50s or early 60s who trained with Bob Hobson’, Jacobson meant ‘Oh God, he was part of that notorious sex abuse ring at the Maudsley in the 1960s, we are not touching this patient who has complained about him’ and when Dr Neil Davies wrote ‘DAJ’ on the top of documents, it was a signal that the patient concerned had complained about Dafydd…

Ah the doctors they were wonderful! What does the acronym ‘DIEBITCH’ mean please doctor? It’s on so many of the records of the Empowered Service Users from north Wales!

The BMJ in Aug 2004 published a nice photo of Jimmy:

An external file that holds a picture, illustration, etc. Object name is shroffj.f1.jpg

N.G. Hodges has been a busy bee, he has published extensively with many others. For example, in 2016 Hodges published ‘Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease in Welsh Slate Miners’: Reynolds C.J., MacNeill S.J., Williams J., Hodges N.G., Campbell M.J., Newman-Taylor A.J., Cullinan P. (2016) Occupational Medicine, Nov 2016 67 (1):20-25.

When N.G. Hodges co-authored that article, he hadn’t published anything since he wrote the obituary for his mate Jimmy for the BMJ in 2004. Before Jimmy’s obit, N.G. Hodges’ last contribution to medical science had been in April 1996. So N.G. Hodges suddenly published a paper about Welsh slate quarrymen in Nov 2016, the month that I blogged about Jimmy. N.G. Hodges probably hadn’t read that post by the time that he submitted that paper, but he could well have discovered that I had begun this blog a few months previously.

N.G. Hodges gave his affiliation as the School of Health and Related Research, University of Sheffield. Which is a little odd, because N.G. Hodges is a Top Doctor getting on in years who worked in Gwynedd back in the 1970s and 80s, specialising in respiratory illness…

N.G. Hodges’ co-authors who realised that there was a sudden need to publish on obstructive pulmonary disease in Welsh slate miners in 2016 were Carl Reynolds of the National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College London; S.J. MacNeill of the School of Social and Community Medicine, University of Bristol; J. Williams of the School of Health and Related Research, University of Sheffield; Michael J. Campbell of the University of Sheffield; A.J. Newman Taylor of the National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College and P. Cullinan of the National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College.

Reynolds et al in the article’s abstract told us that the object was ‘to study the cumulative effect of mining on lung function and risk of COPD in a cohort of Welsh slate miners and whether these were independent of smoking and pneumoconiosis. The study was based on a secondary analysis of Medical Research Council (MRC) survey data….We created multivariable models to assess the association between mining and lung function after adjusting for age and smoking status…. In the original MRC study, 1255 men participated (726 slate miners, 529 unexposed non-miners). COPD was significantly more common in miners (n = 213, 33%) than non-miners (n = 120, 26%), P < 0.05. There was no statistically significant difference in risk of COPD between miners and non-miners when analysis was limited to non-smokers or those without radiographic evidence of pneumoconiosis…Slate mining may reduce lung function and increase the incidence of COPD independently of smoking and pneumoconiosis’.

Now N.G. Hodges and pals, not only is there nothing new in this research, but I note that the work was based on a secondary analysis of MRC data. In 2016, there was not a great deal of slate quarrying going on in Wales any longer and the few quarrymen still working in the industry were well-protected, the deleterious effects of slate dust being well-known. So HOW OLD was your data? Donkey’s years old perhaps? Was it perhaps from the MRC Unit which was located in south Wales many years ago, run by Archie Cochrane, with which Dafydd and Tony Francis’s old mucker Professor Kenneth Rawnsley was involved before he was appointed Chair of Psychological Medicine at the Welsh National School of Medicine? See previous posts for details of Archie et al and the MRC Unit in south Wales…

It was the geniuses linked to Archie’s old mates and the MRC Unit who were responsible for the research fraud carried out by Dafydd’s mates in Dec 1990, which blew up in everybody’s faces days after the silly buggers boasted of their Global First In Cancer Research in the world’s media. See posts ‘They Think It’s All Over – It Is Now’ and ‘Hey, Hey DAJ, How Many Kids Did You Kill Today?’. That paper was published the month in which Tony and Sadie Francis had me arrested on the basis of their perjury; they were attempting to have me imprisoned. When that didn’t happen, they perjured themselves again a few weeks later in another attempt to have me imprisoned; then they had another go some three months after that, in the spring of 1991. None of the charges were criminal charges; the Drs Francis had obtained a High Court injunction against me – again on the basis of perjury – and then repeatedly perjured themselves in their claims that I had breached the injunction and should be imprisoned for contempt of court. I have documents demonstrating that Hempsons, the MDU lawyers, who were acting for the Drs Francis, knew that they had perjured themselves and had advised them not to continue with the case against me. The Drs Francis continued nonetheless and Hempsons represented them.

Hempsons had copies of letters written by me detailing the serious abuse of patients and criminality on the part of Dafydd, the Drs Francis and their colleagues. I also had a long telephone conversation with Ann Ball of Hempsons in late 1990 and told her in no uncertain terms that patients were being seriously abused. Ann Ball told me that Tony and Sadie Francis had told her that they knew nothing about my allegations. Hempsons had documentary evidence themselves that Tony and Sadie were party to the abuse and criminality.

By Dec 1990, Professor Mark Williams was becoming well-known on the back of his Mindfulness work, which was yet another research fraud carried out by Dafydd’s colleagues. See post ‘The Biggest Expert Of The Lot’.

Tony Francis studied under Kenneth Rawnsley and then worked for Rawnsley as a junior doctor after Francis graduated.

With regard to the institutions with which those who’s names are on the 2016 paper with N.G. Hodges. Not long after I finished my MSc at Hammersmith Hospital, Hammersmith merged with Imperial College. Dafydd’s pals at Hammersmith and the Top Docs who were perpetrating research fraud, giving out jobs to the people with whom they were having sex etc all (see eg. posts ‘Oh, Lordy! It’s CR UK’ and ‘Interesting Facts’) became part of Imperial College. For years Imperial was ruled over by Lord Brian Flowers, who grew up in Swansea and retained close links with Wales. Flowers was then given domain over the whole of the University of London and served as VC. Flowers ignored patient harm, criminal misconduct and research fraud in all the London Medical Schools, including the pan-European trafficking ring which St George’s was facilitating. Flowers had a go at being the VC of Manchester University as well, just to ensure that the rot was firmly embedded in the north west of England as well as the north east and London. See previous posts.

Sir Charles Evans, the Top Doc who for the best part of three decades served as the Principal of UCNW while the whole institution was a vehicle for Dafydd’s trafficking gang, was close friends with Top Doctor Anne McCandless, who, like Sir Charles, was more interested in climbing than in being a Top Doctor and didn’t have much time for the human race. Anne McCandless worked as a paediatrician in the Liverpool and Manchester areas and along with her Top Doc mates, was complicit with the abuse of kids and vulnerable people. See post ‘Meet the Gwerin!’.

There were other people with close links to Imperial who colluded with Dafydd and the gang, including those from north Wales, such as Professor Wynn Humphrey Davies, who in retirement returned to north Wales and for many years held office on the Council of Bangor University. See post ‘I Told You I Was Trouble’.

My post ‘I Don’t Believe It!’ discusses what I am fairly sure was a huge research fraud conducted by Dame Julia Polak of Imperial College in collaboration with Sir Magdi Yacoub, in the field of er heart and lung research. I was told by someone the other day that Polak did commit that fraud but it was less certain as to how much Yacoub knew about it; there is a suspicion that he just believed her lies… Whatever the truth, Polak and Yacoub built a whole new research centre on the basis of the Medical Miracles that they were performing and millions and millions of dosh has gone the way of Imperial on the basis of Julia’s ‘research’.

One of N.G. Hodges’ co-authors was based at Bristol University. Dafydd’s gang had a hotline to Bristol University, because Dr D.G.E. Wood trained there. There were many more links between the gang and Bristol University as well, such as Sarah Jenkins, the daughter of Sheila Jenkins, a particularly abusive Gwynedd social worker, who did a degree in psychology at Bristol. Sarah Jenkins was on the psychology degree at Bristol at the same time as Sarah Macaulay, who later became Mrs Gordon Brown. Sarah was the business partner of Julia Hobsbawm and they established Hobsbawm Macaulay Communications, the PR company which served New Labour. Julia’s dad Eric Hobsbawm was the Marxist historian who spent much of his life in the Communist Party, had a second home at Croesor in Gwynedd and was part of the Welsh Bloomsbury Group who drew on the services of Dafydd’s gang for years. See eg. post ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’. Eric Hobsbawm was one of that cohort of Cambridge students who were recruited by the security services, so I can only presume that putting a stop to a gang of paedophiles operating within the post-war welfare state was not on their remit.

Lord David Hunt, who concealed the criminality of Dafydd et al throughout his many years as a Tory MP on Merseyside, Welsh Office Minister, Secretary of State for Wales, member of the Lords and is still doing so in his capacity as one of the most senior people in the international law firm DAC Beachcroft, completed his law degree at Bristol University.

As for N.G. Hodges, I have no idea how an elderly, clapped out doctor from Ysbyty Gwynedd who was mates with Dafydd et al managed to get himself an affiliation with Sheffield University in the twilight of his years, but in view of what is going on, it could very easily have been arranged. Sheffield was at the hub of the ring run by Jimmy Savile, who was involved with Dafydd’s gang. I am only surprised that the much bigger names from Sheffield University on that paper – one of whom I think now has a Chair in Australia – were stupid enough to have been party to this lame response to my blog.

 As for Sheffield per se, one of the hubs of Jimmy Savile HQ, didn’t a man called David Blunkett ever notice anything amiss in downtown, gangland Sheffield? He led the Sheffield City Council throughout the Savile years and was Home Secretary as well…
‘The People’s Republic Of Sheffield’ had old Tebbs and the Tories fuming. Not so much a People’s Regime if you were a kid in care or psych patient being targeted by Savile’s gang was it Blunkett?

Joan Beer I think is still alive; she is a leading light in Penrallt Baptist Church in Bangor. There are some very nice people in Penrallt, I know some of them there, but there is a big contingent of social workers, Top Docs and Bangor University staff who definitely colluded with the trafficking ring. Not much happened at Penrallt without Joan Beer being at the centre of it.
Bill Beer’s mentor at the Westminster Hospital, Peter Samman, died in 1992 and his biography is also to be found on the Royal College of Physician’s ‘Lives of the Fellows’ online:

Peter Samman was born in Darjeeling, India. His father, Herbert Frederick Samman, was a Commissioner in the Indian Civil Service, as was his mother’s father. His cousin, C T Samman, a lieutenant colonel who was master of the Worshipful Company of Apothecaries 1928-31…

On his father’s retirement the family returned to the Isle of Man, where Peter attended King William’s College. He went up to Emmanuel College, Cambridge, and then to King’s College Hospital, London.

Samman was at Cambridge in the 1930s, along with all those gay elite men who worked for the security services and used their positions to ensure that they could have sex with kids and young people who didn’t really want to have sex with them and then murder witnesses if they wouldn’t shut up.

Soon after he qualified, the second world war began. He volunteered for the RAF, rose to the rank of squadron leader, spent two years in Canada, and after the war returned to King’s and obtained his membership of the College.

Dannie Abse finished his clinical training at King’s after the Westminster Hospital and he spent quite some time working as a Top Doc in the RAF, reaching a senior position…

The King’s dermatology ethos had attracted him to the specialty. Sydney Thomson – of Thomson’s Disease, congenital poikiloderma, 1923 – was in charge of the department having succeeded Arthur Whitfield, of the ointment. He was house surgeon and medical registrar at King’s until 1947 when he moved to Bristol as senior registrar. There he started a lifelong study that brought him international recognition – the classification of the cutaneous lymphomas…

In 1951 he was appointed consultant physician for diseases of the skin to Westminster Hospital. He spent a sabbatical six months during 1958 at the University of Pennsylvania in the foremost academic unit in the USA, Pillsbury’s. This was followed by his appointment to the staff of St John’s Hospital for Diseases of the Skin. St John’s was his chief academic focus; he was dean for five years.

A man of upright and definite convictions…

He just missed a great deal of what was happening around him

He was punctilious in his attendance to his hospital work at Westminster and St John’s, where he was particularly respected for sound clinical judgement and also in committee.

Bill my dear chap! The international trafficking ring that young Abse is developing needs a dermatologist in the heartland of Gwynedd! You’re good with languages and the region is a Methodist stronghold, you must apply… We must remember our NHS work after all…

His opinion was always the first to be sought at national and international meetings on the subject of cutaneous T-cell lymphomas, mycosis fungoides and pre-reticulotic conditions. He would answer succinctly and clearly, reporting his meticulous analysis of the patients that had been referred to him from all over the UK.

I can only hope that Samman’s research was rather less flaky than that of N.G. Hodges et al…

He gave the Parkes Weber lecture in 1976, entitled ‘Cutaneous reticulosis’. He also contributed chapters on this subject, on nails in disease and on lichen planus, in the celebrated Textbook of dermatology, ed A J Rook and D S Wilkinson, Oxford, Blackwell, 1968, which went into several editions. His The nails in disease, London, Heinemann, 1965, went into four editions. In 1990 he edited A history of St John’s Hospital for Diseases of the Skin, Oxford, Radcliffe Medical.

You can see why a load of wallies in Parliament are taken in on every occasion can’t you. It sounds brilliant, very Dr Finlay.

He married Judith Mary née Kelly in 1953 and settled in Orpington, Kent. He and Judy had a large garden and Peter was a knowledgeable plantsman; he won many cups and awards at horticultural shows where his speciality was chrysanthemums.

The Gumbies of Monty Python fame liked chrysanthemums. The Gumbies did brain surgery as well.

[Samman] had three daughters, one of whom also qualified as a Gumby and works as a GP. In his later years he was afflicted with Parkinson’s disease; he died of pneumonia.

The Gumbies could do no more for him…

 

In Aug 1986, N.G. Hodges and others published ‘Mortality of Slate Workers In North Wales’ in the British Journal of Industrial Medicine, 43(8): 550-555.
So N.G. Hodges and his mates had published something in 1986 using data collected in 1975. Data this old and indeed much older can certainly be valuable in many areas of research, but not in this area. Once again, N.G. Hodges was telling the world something that it already knew about an industry that had changed its working practices and that was in decline anyway, using ancient data.
On this occasion, the cutting edge researcher which is N.G .Hodges co-authored with P.D. Oldham, C. Bevan and P.C. Elwood. I will return to these co-researchers of N.G.’s shortly.
In 1981, O.C. Parry-Jones and N.G. Hodges published ‘Severe Breathlessness, Respiratory Failure and Asphyxia’ in the BMJ, 282(6262):441-443]
Kenneth Rawnsley worked with those MRC Units at one time and he was able to publish work maintaining that the health differences between the different communities in south Wales were predicated on psychological factors. Ken explained that was why people living in the industrial parts of the valleys who spent their lives down coal mines and lived in poor housing covered in coal dust were moaning and groaning about their aches and pains, coughing their guts up and walked with stoops and limps, but those in the Vale of Glamorgan had a skip in their step, a smile for everyone and clean faces and necks.

Professor Peter Elwood was a key component of the MRC Epidemiology Unit and a man of whom Cardiff University are proud. See post ‘The Vermin Club’. Peter has been at the forefront of many medical breakthroughs and his stellar career continued at speed, even after his name was on that horribly embarrassing paper published by Dafydd’s gang in Dec 1990…
All the Top Docs at the Welsh National School of Medicine and in Cardiff knew what was happening in north Wales. It was why junior doctors would not take jobs in north Wales and even the medical students’ hearts sank if they had to complete a placement in Bangor. Meanwhile, Professor Fergus Lowe at Bangor University built an empire on the back of holding weak colluding fools over a barrel. Before Fungus blackmailed Unilever, the Leverhulme Trust and the ESRC over the wrongdoing of Dafydd et al, he raised funds and his profile by ‘working with health authorities’ in Wales. Fungus, the Leo Abse of Psychology, kicked all of them about because he knew how serious the criminality with which they had been complicit was. See previous posts.
What’s the betting that N.G. and co had used the same old data set that they brought out of mothballs in 2016 when the paedophile gang sent up a distress flare, after using it for their Aug 1986 paper? They certainly made good use of that 1975 data, from a slate industry that barely existed any longer, in which practices had changed out of all recognition by the time that they were publishing. Many of the people in the data set would have been dead by the time that N.G. still faithfully worked the data in 1986, let alone 2016.
Yet more meaningless research brought to the world by mates of Dafydd’s because I’ve popped my head above the parapet again. You can almost set your clocks by it. Aug 1986, my first formal complaint to the Mental Health Act Commission after I was unlawfully detained under the Mental Health Act in Ysbyty Gwynedd when I refused to leave the premises because my previous letters of complaint had not been answered. Dec 1990, I had given Hempsons full details of the abuse and criminality on the part of the NHS and social services in north Wales. Nov 2016, I’d begun this blog.
My how things haven’t changed.

In 1984, a brand new hospital opened in Bangor, Ysbyty Gwynedd:
Dafydd Wigley, Plaid MP for Caernarfon 1974-2001 and AM for the same constituency 1999-2003, fought long and hard for the quarrymen to receive compensation for their respiratory illnesses, but not until most of them were in a very bad way. He’s still fighting, although they’ve nearly all died. Lord Wigley didn’t mention a word about the nonsensical research of N.G. Hodges, but he didn’t mention anything about the trafficking ring either. One of Lord Wigley’s advisers was Ioan Bowen Rees, the Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council when the paedophile gang operated in the children’s homes run by Gwynedd County Council. See previous posts.

To return to Sir Frederick. In 1938, Sir Frederick Lincoln Ralphs married Enid Mary Cowlin, Vice-President of the NUS and the couple moved to Norwich in 1946. Appointed as Deputy Education Officer for Norfolk, one of Ralphs first jobs was to write a document calling for the creation of a university in the county; this was eventually founded as the University of East Anglia.

In 1950, Ralphs was promoted to the post of Chief Education Officer for Norfolk and he served in the position until 1974. In this role, Ralphs opposed the creation of the OU but was active in the Schools Broadcasting Council and in 1969, he also became Chairman of the Further Education Advisory Council. Ralphs was the key figure behind the establishment of Wymondham College in 1951.

Ralphs was given his K in 1973.  He died in 1978, but his wife Lady Ralphs lived until Jan 2014 and flew the flag until the very end. Days after her death, the ‘Eastern Daily Press’ reminded its readers of Lady Ralphs and her extensive good works. Lady Ralphs passed away at her home in Norwich, leaving behind ‘three children, seven grandchildren and eight great grandchildren’. Their descendants will be everywhere in Norfolk, preserving the good reputations on their forebears.

‘The retired lecturer…was actively involved in supporting Norfolk education right up until her death. Lady Ralphs made significant contributions – both locally and nationally – through her work as a magistrate and served as a Norwich magistrate for 27 years and was Chairman of the bench. In 1981, Lady Ralphs became the first woman Chairman of the Magistrates’ Association of England and Wales and was also made a Deputy Lieutenant of Norfolk in the same year.’

Lady Ralphs was born in January 1915 in Cornwall as Enid Mary Cowlin and went to school at Penzance Grammar School for Girls where she later returned to teach geography. During her university days, she was President of the students’ union at what became Exeter University and Vice-President of the NUS.

Adam Curle, who founded the Dept of Peace Studies at Bradford, which like UCNW survived a determined onslaught from Thatch’s for no other reason that people associated with that Dept, including Adam Curle himself, were closely associated with organised abuse and the Westminster paedophile Ring, in 1952 was appointed to the Chair of Education and Psychology at the University of Exeter. See post ‘The Stations Of The Crass’.

 

Lady Ralphs became a part-time lecturer at Keswick Hall teacher training college after she moved to Norwich in 1946, where she stayed until her retirement in 1980. Keswick Hall was an institution sustained by the Church of England since its establishment in the 19th century. It was an immensely troubled place by the 1930s and in March 1942 the Board of Education (what is now the Dept of Education), gave the college a year to resolve all the problems, or the College would have to close. Somehow however the college survived; I wonder how or indeed which Gov’t Minister was blackmailed over wrongdoing to enable the college to survive.

Lady Ralphs was Governor of Norwich School, Wymondham College and Culford School, President of Norfolk Girl Guiding and a member of the Guide Council for Great Britain.

Lady Ralphs was President of the Norwich branch of the UNA. Previous posts have discussed Dafydd’s links with the UNA. When I was doing my PhD and the gwerin were so outraged at my presence in Bangor University that they began surrounding me to hassle me at every opportunity, a one day conference on the Problems of Drug Abuse was organised by the local branch of the UNA, to be held in one of the main lecture theatres at Bangor University. The keynote speaker was Dafydd. The promotional material for the planned event gave a substantially misleading account of Dafydd’s career, expertise and reputation. So I offered to attend the event and distribute literature providing additional information about Dafydd. I received an e mail from a member of the UNA branch called Tegai which contained information about me that only Dafydd or Tony Francis could have provided. It wasn’t dynamite or some terrible secret, it was just info that no-one else in Bangor University or who was in my life at that time would have known.

The UNA subsequently cancelled the event and I found out years later that it had been organised by Menai Williams, the retired Deputy Principal of Bangor Normal College, the teacher training college which merged with Bangor University in 1996, but for years was managed and staffed by people complicit with the trafficking ring and even managed to train a few teachers who were convicted of abusing their pupils. See post ‘Thought For the Day’. Menai was a leading light in the UNA.

The UNA seems to attract people who associate with other questionable people or end up in trouble. After graduating from Oxford, Jeffrey Archer was employed as a fundraiser for the UNA. Tuppence organised the UNA’s flag day collection, yet despite barely increasing the previous year’s total, Tuppence was then promoted to organise a dinner at 10 Downing Street, which raised over £200,000. Tuppence was later accused by the then Chairman of the UNA, Humphrey Berkeley, of playing fast and loose with his expense claims while he worked for the UNA.

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

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

Berkeley was a strong internationalist who supported the work of the United Nations; his father had supported the League of Nations. Humphrey served on the Parliamentary Assembly of the Western European Union and the Council of Europe from 1963. Berkeley was a member of the Howard League for Penal Reform and from 1965 the honorary Treasurer. That year he also drew up the new rules for election of the Leader of the Conservative Party, which I think were used to elect Ted Heath.

In 1965, Berkeley introduced a Private Members Bill to legalise male homosexuality along the lines of the Wolfenden Report. Berkeley was well known to his colleagues as a homosexual and not much liked. His Bill fell when Parliament was dissolved in 1966, soon after its reading. Unexpectedly, Berkeley lost his seat in 1966 and attributed his defeat to the unpopularity of his bill on homosexuality.

In 1968 Berkeley had resigned from the Conservative Party, largely in opposition to its stance on Vietnam. In 1970, he joined the Labour Party, unsuccessfully standing as a Labour candidate in 1974.

Berkely then spent time working as a roving ambassador of the now defunct Republic of Transkei, until he was abducted one night in February 1979, assaulted on the side of a road, put into the boot of a car, and dumped over the border at Kei Bridge. Berkeley joined the SDP in 1981, and fought Southend East for them in 1987. In 1988 with the SDP splitting over whether to merge with the Liberals, he rejoined Labour.

Menai Williams has been involved with the UNA for a very long time. Menai first joined the staff of the Normal College back in the 1950s. So Menai was busy when Humphrey Berkeley was Chairing the UNA and Tuppence was allegedly fiddling his expenses. Was Dafydd associated with the UNA then as well? I think we should be told.

Someone else who was involved with the UNA for many years was Lord David Ennals, frequent star of previous blog posts. Ennals served as Secretary to the UNA, 1952-57 and became Chairman in 1984. In previous posts I have detailed David Ennals’ many links with Dafydd and Dafydd’s mates. Ennals was involved with MIND for many years while Dafydd was a leading figure in that organisation and while MIND was concealing Dafydd’s criminality. Ennals led a big campaign for MIND between 1970 and 1973, was appointed Chairman in 1984 and served as President, 1989-95. Ennals was also mates with Dafydd’s pal at the Maudsley, Dr Jim Birley, who was nearly as mad as Dafydd, but who nonetheless remained at the top of the Maudsley and the Royal College of Psychiatrists for years. Birley felt able to denounce the Soviet Union for its abuse of psychiatry while Dafydd used exactly the same techniques as Soviet psychiatrists but against people who had complained about he and his colleagues abusing people, rather than political dissidents. See previous posts.

As if that wasn’t enough, Ennals concealed the wrongdoing of Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring when he was a junior Minister at the Home Office in 1967 under Woy. Ennals was able to push the boat out for Dafydd even further as Minister of state at the DHSS, working under Barbara Castle, alongside Babs’s two advisers, Jack Straw and Prof Brian Abel-Smith. Between them, Castle, Ennals, Abel-Smith and Straw concealed enormous quantities of patient harm, as well as deaths, within the NHS and Social Services, in addition to the widespread organised abuse of kids in care and vulnerable adults. See previous posts.

Ennals however had become acquainted with Dafydd et al early in his career before Ennals was on many radars. Ennals’ first go at being an MP was between 1964 and 1970 when he was the Labour member for Dover. In 1968, Ennals served as a junior Minister under what was then called the Minister for Health (now known as the Health Secretary), Sir Kenneth Robinson, who was also Chair of the National Association of Mental Health (MIND) in the 1960s. The Top Docs loved Sir Kenneth, the BMA still fondly remembers him as the Best Minister Of Health That We’ve Ever Had. Sir Ken gave the Top Docs lots of money and rolled over on every point when in ‘negotiations’ with them. Sir Ken didn’t only collude as much as possible with Dafydd and the gang, Sir Ken didn’t only ensure that Dafydd was given a job as consultant at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh, Sir Ken didn’t only remain silent when Dafydd one day loaded hordes of seriously ill totally institutionalised inmates of Denbigh onto a fleet of coaches with no warning and dumped them in B&Bs on the north Wales coast where they were late found starving and covered in lice (I bet some of them died as well), but Sir Ken was a good friend of Dafydd. I don’t know WHY Sir Kenneth Robinson was a pal of a sex offending nutter who ran a paedophile ring, but he was. That I think was how dear old Lord Ennals was introduced to the ring…

A few Interesting Facts that might explain Sir Kenneth Robinson’s fondness for Gwynne the lobotomist, Dafydd and the paedophile gang:

Sir Kenneth’s parents were a Top Doc and a nurse, so he was off to a flying start. Kenneth was a St Pancras Borough Councillor, 1945-49, then the Labour MP for St Pancras North, 1949-70. St Pancras was a constituency which contained lots of seriously poor people and many working as prostitutes, who lived not a million miles away from the much richer folk of Camden which included the Bloomsbury Group, many of whom were having sex with very young people who didn’t particularly want to have sex with them. Gwynne and Dafydd loyally served the Welsh Bloomsbury Group who had second homes in Croesor…

So Kenneth would have known Lena Jeger, the Labour Party’s Wimmin’s Champ who was the MP for the neighbouring constituency and he’d also have known her Top Doc husband, a founder member of the Socialist Medical Association and one of those who just wanted to Help The Poor. See post ‘Stations Of The Crass’.

Kenneth Robinson went to Oundle School, which was where Sir Clough William-Ellis, the Anglo-Welsh landowner who let out his properties in Croesor to his friends from the Bloomsbury Group who had their main homes in London, also went to school. Professor William Trethowan – a colleague of Dafydd’s mate Kenneth Rawnsley when Rawnsley worked at Manchester University – who was the GMC member who in the early 1970s ensured that paedophile child psychiatrist Dr Morris Fraser was allowed to continue to practise (see eg. post ‘The Mrs Mills Experience’), went to Oundle.

During WW II, Robinson served in the Royal Navy, so he knew about the gay spies in the Admiralty and whatever it was that Lord Louis Mountbatten was up to which enabled so many people to silently blackmail other people thus ensuring comfy lifestyles for themselves. Sir Ken would have also known Admiral Sir Alec Bingley, who’s wife Lady Juliet and son William Bingley held senior roles at MIND throughout the 1970s and 80s and did so many favours for Dafydd. William carried on the good work for Dafydd when he became Chief Exec of the Mental Health Act Commission. See previous posts eg. ‘The Defence Of The Realm’.

See previous posts for more info on Sir Kenneth Robinson, who remained loyal to dear old Dafydd until the day that he died in Feb 1996. By which time William Hague knew that Ronnie Waterhouse would soon be Chairing an Inquiry into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal and I bet that Dafydd did as well. Kenneth Robinson was a good age when he died but I’m sure that a Top Doc could have put him on the Liverpool Care Pathway just to help him on his way lest Ken did live a few more months and mention a few names. Or indeed State Secrets.

Dutch judge orders 'mercy killing' of 80-year-old dementia ...

 

Brian Abel-Smith was the LSE economist who designed the fundamentally flawed model of the NHS. He wouldn’t admit or amend the flaws and after many years of doing the ah the doctors they were wonderful bit and just explaining how they needed more money, Abel-Smith finally admitted that the doctors they are fucking impossible to deal with and he gave up his advisory role with the NHS and went to work as an adviser to Peter Shore, the Minister concerned with housing. Peter Shore was an East End MP who also spent years saying ah the doctors they were wonderful while he concealed the kids who were being abused and trafficked to north Wales children’s homes by Dafydd’s business partners in London. When the kids who had returned to London infected with HIV and working as rent boys began dying from AIDS in the mid-late 1980s, Peter Shore helped extract dosh out of Ken Clarke at the Dept of Health to convert the defunct Mildmay Mission Hospital in Shoreditch into an AIDS hospice, where the kids trafficked by Dafydd died in invisibility. See post ‘Apocalypse Now’. The Mildmay also had a few celeb patients who were kept well-hidden… Once more, Parliament and the media led the chorus of ah the doctors they were wonderful…

Abel-Smith knew about the Westminster Paedophile Ring himself. Not only was he a state bureaucrat who wouldn’t tolerate any criticism of the NHS, but he was also gay and from 1965 he also busied himself running a gents fashion business which flogged gear to celebs such as the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, who, I was told by Empowered Service Users on the scene in the 1960s, were using the services of Dafydd’s gang… For more information on Abel-Smith, see previous posts…

Abel-Smith worked with the LSE sociologist Prof Peter Townsend, who also served as an adviser to the Labour Gov’ts of the 1960s and 70s. One thing that I haven’t mentioned in previous posts is a speech that David Ennals made to the Socialist Medical Association on 27 March 1977, in his capacity as Secretary of State for the DHSS; Ennals served in this role, 1976-79, in Jim Callaghan’s Gov’t. Ennals was asked by the SMA to talk on the subject of ‘The Gov’t and the NHS’. Ennals made a speech about health inequalities and recited stats about the differential mortality rates etc between people of different social classes and told the SMA of how many more millions that he was investing in the NHS and in Health Education. Much of Ennals’ speech could have been made by Theresa May or indeed any Gov’t Minister in the last few days.

Ennals also mentioned in his speech that his Chief Scientist was appointing three advisers to Tackle The Problems, one of those advisers being Professor Peter Townsend, who was going to be the next speaker at the SMA event after Ennals had done his turn. The Peter Townsend who had by then been advising the Gov’t on er poverty and inequality for many years…

Lord David Ennals knew Lady Ralphs and not just through the UNA. David Ennals knew Lady Ralphs because David Ennals was the Labour MP for Norwich North, Feb 1973-June 1983… Ennals then sat in the Lords between 1983 until he died in June 1995. Ennals died in June 1995, so like his pal Kenneth Robinson, Ennals was out of the way by the time that the Waterhouse Inquiry was underway.

Ennals died of pancreatic cancer. I cannot help noticing how many people who were involved with Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring died of pancreatic cancer. Pancreatic cancer is not a nice one to have because by the time it is diagnosed it is usually well-advanced and there is not much life expectancy left. When I first noticed how many people with info on the Westminster Paedophile Ring had died suddenly of pancreatic cancer it did occur to me that perhaps the Top Docs had simply carefully not raised the possibility of pancreatic cancer, knowing that it would soon be too late… But another thought has occurred to me. I’m not sure that pancreatic cancer is that common, yet an awful lot of these witnesses died from it. We are dealing with a network of deeply corrupt, seriously criminal Top Docs here; they and their associates include pathologists, coroners, oncologists etc… I know that bare-faced lies have been told about the cause of deaths in north Wales by pathologists and coroners. What if that has been happening elsewhere?

David Ennals’ brother Martin was DG of Amnesty International for many years. Lord David Ennals’ son Sir Paul Ennals sits on numerous safeguarding boards and was/is the CEO of the National Children’s Bureau, with which the paedophile social work academic Peter Righton was involved, as was Righton’s friend social worker Barbara Kahan. Kahan concealed the organised abuse of children in care for many years, including in Oxfordshire, where she was a social work manager. Her husband Dr Vladimir Kahan, a child psychiatrist, assisted her. Keith Joseph appointed Barbara Kahan as his adviser on children in care when he was Secretary of State for the DHSS, 1970-74, in Heath’s Gov’t and Kahan remained a Gov’t adviser throughout the 1970s and 80s. See eg. post ‘Always On The Side Of the Children’.

I mentioned that the UNA planned a conference at Bangor University in 2005, at which Dafydd was to be the keynote speaker. Imagine my surprise when I found out that not only has Frank Field, the Labour MP for Birkenhead since 1979, been involved with the UNA for many years, but Frank Field was still very much involved with the UNA in 2006. Previous posts have discussed how Dafydd’s gang ran Birkenhead, how dispossessed people from Birkenhead have been turning up in north Wales for many years now, as patients in Dafydd’s care homes or as clients of his ‘substance abuse’ charidee CAIS. They are never cared for properly and many of them were frankly abused.

Frank Field is famous for taking his Anglicanism seriously and for never having been married or blessed with children. Field comments in media interviews that he has led a Full Life with his Parliamentary work. So how he’s found time to waste with a load of old paedophiles I don’t know.

Frank Field was Director of the Child Poverty Action Group, 1969-79 and the Low Pay Unit, 1974-80. The CPAG was established in 1965 by Brian Abel-Smith and Peter Townsend. Virginia Bottomley worked as a researcher for the CPAG before she entered the Commons. Bottomley is a former psychiatric social worker who spent her time in the DoH as a Minister and then Secretary of State colluding with Dafydd and the gang (see previous posts).

Frank Field is notorious on the grounds of his admiration for, and friendship with, Thatch.

Tony Lynes (1929 – 12 October 2014) was appointed as the first full-time Secretary of the CPAG in 1966, but resigned in 1968. Lynes was employed as assistant to Professor Richard Titmuss, Abel Smith and Townsend’s colleague at the LSE, 1958-65. Lynes was recruited by Margaret Herbison, Harold Wilson’s Minister of Social Security, in 1965 and worked for a year in the Ministry of Pensions and National Insurance writing a paper on family allowances. After resigning from the CPAG, Lynes moved to Oxfordshire where he met his wife, Sally. He was probably the first welfare rights officer employed by a local authority working for Oxfordshire Children’s Department. Where Lynes will have known one of the senior managers there, a Barbara Kahan…

Tony Lynes led the shareholder revolt against the Distillers Company unwillingness to compensate Thalidomide victims. The Thalidomide scandal is an excellent example of how people harmed by the NHS were mangled on numerous levels by numerous people.

Thalidomide was prescribed to pregnant women during the late 1950s and early 1960s. If taken at a particular stage in pregnancy, Thalidomide causes phocomelia. Thalidomide had been deemed safe for humans after tests on animals did not show phocomelia. Animal rights activists thus use Thalidomide as an example of why drugs shouldn’t be tested on animals. What they do not explain is that the reason why phocomelia didn’t show up during the testing of Thalidomide was that the drug had only been tested on ONE species of animal. Had it been tested on both rats and rabbits, the phocomelia would have been obvious… Thalidomide is not a good advert for not testing drugs on animals. Thalidomide wasn’t tested on enough different species of animals…

So Thalidomide was widely prescribed and the link between the drug and phocomelia was soon noticed. In some European countries, docs were told to stop prescribing Thalidomide. Not in the UK. NHS – and of course private – Top Docs continued prescribing Thalidomide even though it was known to cause phocomelia…

The Great Thalidomide Battle was taken up by Campaigning Sunday Times journo, Marjorie Wallace, who received loud applause from all quarters and established her reputation. Marjorie was married to a psychiatrist, Andrew Skarbek, who worked at UCL and was part of Dafydd’s network. Skarbek and Marjorie knew that kids in care and patients were being abused and they colluded 100%.

Marjorie and her Campaigning resulted in a settlement for the Victims of Thalidomide. It was a very poor settlement, even by the standards of the time, but no-one clearly explained that. It soon became very clear however and when the Victims tried to improve their deal, they were told to fuck off.

Now this is where it gets interesting. Previous posts on this blog have provided full details of the Court case and the lawyers involved who Won For The Thalidomide Victims. The lawyers who Fought For The Victims and the Generous Judge Who Helped were the very same legal professionals who covered up for Dafydd and the gang and who also ruined the Church of Scientology in their legal battle with Sir Kenneth Robinson, after the Scientologists had stated that psychiatrists were abusing children and involved in harmful research on patients. The Scientologists had found out about Dafydd and his network in the 1960s and no matter how mad the Scientologists are, they should not have lost that case. They did and no-one ever dared accuse Dafydd and the gang again. Ronnie Waterhouse was involved in that case and acted against the Scientologists.

Ronnie Waterhouse, since he had been a young man, was a good mate of Geoffrey Howe, who was another Welsh barrister colluding with Dafydd et al…

There is also a link between some of the lawyers involved with Marjorie and the People’s Victory Over Thalidomide and the Aberfan disaster. One of the lawyers involved in ‘gaining justice’ after Aberfan, who so surprised south Wales by being sympathetic to them even though he was a Posh English Lawyer, was also one of those who knew about Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring and who was involved with the network re the quiet shafting of the Thalidomide victims without anyone realising until a later date.

Can anyone remember what happened after the Posh English Lawyer succeeded in Helping Aberfan? The Aberfan Disaster Fund, established to help the people of Aberfan, was raided to fund the removal of the slag heaps, lest another one fell down the mountainside and killed a few more people. The Disaster Fund was raided because the NCB refused to foot the entire bill for removing the slag heaps. The Secretary of State for Wales who raided the fund was George Thomas, who’s sexual abuse of children was being concealed by the lawyers and politicians involved in the Thalidomide case, the Church of Scientology case and the Aberfan case. Dafydd’s gang were linked to George Thomas.

Of the people from Aberfan who did receive compensation for their suffering, they had to demonstrate that they had experienced Real Suffering; the emotional distress at losing a child did not count. The Suffering had to be Real, in terms of injury or financial loss etc.

Previous posts detail the Thalidomide, Scientology and Aberfan cases, so I haven’t reproduced the info in detail here. But they were all cases which took place in the mid-late 1960s, in which victims of people linked to the Westminster Paedophile Ring were shafted. It is also clear that the politicians and lawyers involved in these three cases planned how the three cases would be ‘resolved’ in unison. This was Harold Wilson’s Gov’t, Ordinary People had been harmed and killed and Wilson et al had to do a bit of thinking to stop this blowing up in a very big way.

Paedophiles in Distress, Paedophiles In Distress, Can Marjorie Lead A Campaign?

Marjorie – The Prototype for Esther!

Should readers be able to stomach much more, do read my posts about the fate of the Top Docs who prescribed Thalidomide after it was known to cause phocomelia; they destroyed records, suffered from convenient lapses of memory and ended up on bodies concerned with the regulation and safety of medicines.

Professor Sir William Asscher Chaired the Dept of Health’s Committee on the Review of Medicines, 1985-87 and it’s successor, the Committee on Safety of Medicines, 1987-93. Asscher’s wiki entry tells us that ‘he was knighted for this work’. Asscher was actually knighted for concealing Dafydd’s gang, George Thomas et al while Asscher worked at the Welsh National School of Medicine during the 1970s and then concealing the Westminster Paedophile Ring yet again while he was Dean of St George’s throughout the later years of the 1980s and the first half of the 1990s…See previous posts.

 

Distillers did behave disgracefully, but so did many other people…

Thalidomiders! I know that you are continuing to battle for help to address your needs now that you are in middle-age and are becoming increasingly disabled. Much as I would like to do a massive investigation into your stitch-up which was linked to Aberfan and the Westminster Paedophile Ring, I’m not going to have the time to do so. But please, read back through my posts and use the info in them as a basis for further research to help you. Your case was definitely part of a bigger deal to save the skins of Dafydd, George Thomas et al in the wake of the Scientologists trying to expose them.

Tony Lynes was a social security adviser to Labour Secretaries of State from 1974 to 1979, ie. Barbara Castle and David Ennals. Tony Lynes claimed to have tabled more (good) amendments to Social Security legislation than anyone in history.Tony Lynes is credited with bringing the idea of a welfare rights movement to the UK, after he visited the US. He ‘famously attended Parliamentary debates and on the same day composed press releases at the CPAG office which he then delivered, in person, to Fleet Street, all on his bicycle’. That this is worthy of note, suggests how common excessive troughing was in Lynes’s circle of Those Helping The Poor.

Small black pigs eat from the trough. Back view. Stock Photo
Lynes spent his years in retirement working with the Southwark Pensioners Action Group, campaigning for a better deal for pensioners. He also founded the Southwark Explorers Club and the Welcome Singers. Southwark is on the doorstep of the Maudsley and not only were staff of the Maudsley facilitating organised abuse in Southwark, but corrupt Southwark Councillors and the local Labour MP Bob Mellish were sending numerous kids in care from Southwark to children’s homes in north Wales. See post ‘The Battle For The Labour Party’s Soul’. Dafydd’s mate Dr Jim Birley ran employment schemes and housing projects for Empowered Service Users in Southwark. Birley was a friend of David Ennals.

 

Tony Lynes doesn’t sound as though he was the trougher that those with whom he worked were, but he worked closely enough with them to know that they were working in collaboration with a big sex abuse ring. Which might well have been why Tony Lynes died as a result of a being knocked over by a car in Herne Hill on 11 October 2014, before the publication of the Macur Review, which covered up the cover up which was the Waterhouse Report.

 

Former South West Norfolk MP Baroness Shephard, who first met Lady Ralphs of the Paedophile Ring in 1963, said: ‘Lady Ralphs has given seven decades of continuous public service to the people of Norfolk and further afield. She has contributed so much to many areas of public life in education, teacher training, the magistrates service, the United Nations Association and girl guiding to name a few. She was a towering figure and an outstanding role model. She was a strong supporter of Wymondham College from its formation to the end of her life.’

Gillian Shephard was born in Norfolk and was educated at North Walsham Girls’ High School and St Hilda’s College, Oxford. She became a schoolteacher and then worked as an Education Inspector for Norfolk County Council, 1963-75. From 1975 to 1977 Shephard worked for Anglia Television. Tuppence’s wife the Fragrant Lady Mary was a non-executive  Director of Anglia Television. In 1994, Lady Archer was a non-executive Director when Anglia Television was the target of a takeover bid. Following reports from the London Stock Exchange, the DTI appointed inspectors on 8 February 1994 to investigate possible insider dealing contraventions by certain individuals in relation to the Anglia TV takeover bid, including Tuppence. No charges were brought.

Shephard was elected to Parliament in 1987 and became PPS to Peter Lilley in 1988, when Lilley was at the Treasury. Lilley served as Secretary of State for the DHSS, April 1992-May 1997. Throughout the police investigations into the possible VIP paedophile ring in north Wales and the chaos on the ground up there, which was blindingly obvious to anyone who was involved with the NHS/Social Services in Gwynedd and Clwyd at the time. Forged documents Lilley, patients framed for offences, as of course I was, kids in care and psych patients found dead constantly…

Lilley knew about the Westminster Paedophile Ring long before he became Secretary of State. His dad was a personnel officer for the BBC in the days when the BBC was run by the security services and at the same time hosted the early paedophile ring.

Peter Lilley will have been exposed to more high jinks when he was an undergrad at Cambridge, along with other future Tory Cabinet Ministers, who came to be known as the Cambridge Mafia. Including Ken Clarke, Michael Howard, Norman Lamont…

Gillian Shephard was appointed a junior Minister in the DHSS in 1989 under Secretary of State, who will have been either John Moore or Tony Newton; Shephard may have worked for both of them. Moore and Netwon colluded with Dafydd and the gang, even after Alison Taylor wrote to Tony Newton and told him that kids in care in north Wales were being abused. Moore lived at Wimbledon and knew how bad the criminality was at St George’s, his local hospital. Which was probably why when he became ill when Health Secretary, he refused to use St George’s and booked into the private Parkside Hospital in Wimbledon. See previous posts. Shephard was in the DHSS when Thatch’s mate Jimmy Savile was sexually assaulting Broadmoor patients, having been recently appointed as the General Manager of Broadmoor by the DHSS.

In 1990, Shephard became Minister of State at HM Treasury. In 1990 she was given the additional role of Deputy Chairman of the Party. Dear old Ken Baker was Chairman at the time. Ken was Home Secretary during the three times that the Drs Francis perjured themselves in an attempt to have me imprisoned for allegedly breaching a High Court injunction which they’d obtained by er perjuring themselves.

Lord Ken also seems to have played a role in the stitching up of Patient F, Lord Ken being the constituency MP known to someone in Surrey who was mates with corrupt Harley Street Top Docs and was very keen to see F safely in prison… See previous posts. 

John Major appointed Gillian Shephard as Secretary of State for Employment, then as Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food in 1993.

Shephard moved to the position of Education Secretary in 1994 and stayed at the Dept when the Dept of Employment merged into it in 1996. She remained in this position until the 1997 General Election. While Shephard was Education Secretary, there were investigations into the organised abuse of children in many parts of the UK and a number of care workers and teachers were imprisoned for very serious offences stretching back to the 1970s and 80s. Kids in special schools and schools attached to children’s homes in particular had been targeted, including in north Wales. It was revealed that many complaints had been made about some of the institutions and people concerned but they had been ignored.

Shephard seemed to be both extraordinary complacent and callous in the face of what was being revealed. I suspect because Gillian had already accumulated years of experience of being complacent and callous in the face of human suffering. Many of the institutions investigated when Shephard was at the Dept of Education/Dept of Employment were the very same institutions dogged by controversy and complaint when Shephard had been at the DHSS in the late 1980s. Including institutions in north Wales.

How did you miss what was going on Gillian? It was your responsibility and your failure again and again, yet you still showed not a jot of concern when people finally started going to prison in the mid-1990s.

Shephard stepped down from the Commons at the 20o5 General Election. On 21 June 2005 she became Baroness Shephard.

Shephard is currently Chairman of the Association of Conservative Peers. Perhaps Baroness Gillian would like to ask her fellow Conservative Peers to explain why so many of them, for so many years, concealed a huge pan-European trafficking ring with hubs across the UK, including in north Wales, who were murdering the witnesses.

Gilliam Shephard is also Deputy Chair of the Social Mobility and Child Poverty Commission. Having done everything possible to ensure that there is no social mobility and that children in poverty stay there or are exterminated by the state.

Who ever decided to give Gillian the remit for Social Mobility and Child Poverty? There is no indication that she has any interest or knowledge about either. It would be like appointing me Deputy Chair of a company which manufactures motorbike engines, I’d have no idea at all whether the company was doing the right thing. I read yesterday that Enoch Powell used to advise Ministers not to take on jobs at Ministries dealing with matters of which they knew a lot about. So that is why Health Minister after Health Minister cannot control the BMA, is utterly unable to identify that the ‘intervention’ that they are being advised to spent masses amounts of money on to ‘roll out’ across the NHS is clinically ineffective or based on fraudulent research.

Here comes Professor Mark Williams with his Mindfulness Revolution! In clinics! In schools! In universities! In prisons! In the Army! In big US corporations! All based on research conducted by a gang of paedophiles who’s patients killed themselves so frequently that the regional suicide rate showed up as a statistical outlier. It will lead us into a Gentle Compassionate Future!

Mr Cameron, there’s a lady in matching brightly coloured tent and turban to see you who says that if you give her money, she’ll distribute it to teenagers in Inner London to buy drugs and expensive shoes with and this will thermostatically regulate their self-soothing mechanisms, which became  dysfunctional in utero. Can she have a few million quid please? There’s that bloke from the BBC with her, him what does the Arts programmes and knows Jimmy Savile.

 

Melvyn Roffe, principal of Wymondham College, said: “Lady Ralphs was involved from the very inception of Wymondham College, supporting her husband Sir Lincoln Ralphs and taking an interest in every detail of the college as it has developed. It was her energy, charisma, contacts and determination that galvanised the campaign to save the college when it was threatened with closure. She served as College Visitor for over twenty years, regularly attending governors’ meetings and other college events. No one, student, staff or governor, who met her could have failed to have been inspired by her extraordinary perceptiveness and sharp intellect, by her integrity and wisdom and by the vigour of her approach to life.”

The perceptiveness and sharp intellect couldn’t have possibly missed Lord Ennals, Tuppence and Dafydd at the UNA.

 

Wymondham College is a coeducational school in Norfolk. It is one of 36 state boarding schools in England and the largest of its type in the country, with up to 700 boarding places. Boarders are required to pay for the costs of living at the school (£11,000+) whereas day pupils attend the school free. It has specialisms in technology and modern languages. Wymondham College  is one of the highest performing state schools in England and Wales and in 2015 it was the top performing state school in East Anglia. Except that it is a state school that is charging 700 kids more than £11k pa to attend. That’ll alter the profile of the kids attending the ‘state school’ and bump up the exam results nicely.

Then the State School was first opened in 1951, it was located on the site of a WW II hospital, comprised of forty Nissen huts which were used as classrooms and dormitories. Brick-built accommodation began to appear in the late 1950s, but the Nissen huts remained in use, principally for classrooms and storage, through to end of the 1990s. The only Nissen hut now remaining is the State School’s College chapel. A memorial garden has been created on the site of the former hospital’s mortuary, which for many years was used as the State School’s technical drawing classroom. Sir Lincoln Ralphs seemed to have founded quite a bizarre State School, although the State School now has very impressive facilities indeed.

In 1951 there were two separate schools, Grammar and Technical, each with separate Heads. They merged in the mid-1950s, to form a co-educational boarding grammar school. It was intended for academically-gifted children with no grammar school in their local area that they could attend, as well as those with parents abroad or who regularly moved around the country. Wymondham College gave priority, where possible, to children from families where the parents had separated, thus possibly under financial hardship. So the kids at the State School would have been comparatively vulnerable with family difficulties…

Oh God, here comes the UNA to Help The Children…

The State School remained exclusively ‘boarding’ until the early 1970s, when it was merged with the County Grammar School, which had been hosted at Wymondham on a ‘temporary’ basis for nearly ten years.

In the mid-1970s, the State School had 700 boarders and 750 day pupils. By 1978 this was 1,000 day pupils as well as the 700 boarders. Thatch visited the State School in the early 1970s, presumably when she was Heath’s Education Secretary.

The State School in the 1970s had been in a state of disrepair with an out-dated water supply and drainage system and had an unreliable heating system (built in 1944) in the winter and lack of insulation.

Gilliam Shephard was a Norfolk Schools Inspector, she must have heard about these substandard conditions…

Despite these problems the State School was ‘still producing outstanding academic results’. It was offered £250,000 in 1978 by the Labour Gov’t to address the situation, on condition that the State School became comprehensive. The ‘money never appeared, partly because soon after, Labour lost the 1979 general election’.

One wonders why else the money never appeared, State Schools usually hold Gov’ts to their promises if that sort of dosh is at stake. Perhaps Shirl could tell us, she was Education Secretary at the time. Lord David Ennals was Secretary of state at the DHSS and a local MP as well, surely Lady Ralphs could have asked Ennals where the dosh was over a cup of char at a UNA meeting?

Wymondham College lost its grammar status with the advent of comprehensive education, which presumably must have happened despite the £250k not being handed over. In the early 1990s it became a grant maintained school. The facilities of the State School are used for external summer schools. In August 1998, seven children from London on a course run by a special needs charity were taken to the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital after being stung by a swarm of non-native Median wasps. On 9 March 1990, the Phil the Greek visited the State School.

In 2010 the State School became an academy. In 2016 the DfE recognised the College as being in the top 100 schools nationally. The State School was awarded world class school status in November 2015. In 2016 it was the founding school of a new multi-academy trust, the Sapienta Education Trust. The Trust grew in size to 11 schools by December 2017.

 

A memorial service was held in Norwich Cathedral for Lady Ralphs, the woman behind the State School throughout its unfathomable journey from a load of Nissan huts housing boarding pupils who’s parents couldn’t care for them to a world beating State School charging over £11k pa for each of 700 kids and subsequently breeding another 10 schools.

Among all this achievement on the part of those in the State School on the patch of Gillian ‘I couldn’t give a stuff if there’s a paedophile gang at work’ Shephard, Lord David Ennals and Lady Ralphs, what I do know about Norfolk is that as in Somerset, there is quite a gulf between the more privileged and the proles and what for one group of people is a lovely rural place to live that is near enough to London to pop down when one wants to, for another group in many ways is a Godforsaken land of low incomes and little opportunity.

In recent years, another phenomenon has developed in Norfolk. As in Wales, Norfolk has become a place of Assessment Centres and Care Homes. These are not nice places, they are housing distressed young people with learning disabilities/mental health problems who have been removed from their families by law because They Have To Live Independently and they are often sectioned for years on end. There has been scandal after scandal of residents being abused and neglected and more than a few deaths. There are usually no investigations no matter how serious the complaints and when parents or others try to draw media attention to what is happening, they have been served with Court orders forbidding them to discuss the matter. A number of relatives are known to have been imprisoned because they have refused to keep quiet about what they believe has been abuse. No-one knows how many people have been imprisoned because after those cases began to make headlines, Court orders were served forbidding discussion of that as well…

Such is the cosy relationship between Dafydd’s colleagues and their peers in Norfolk, that Empowered Service Users are being sent to units in Norfolk and Norfolk people are being sent to Units in Wales! I know of at least one case in which a young learning disabled man who spoke only Welsh and who had never left Anglesey before was sent to a Unit in Norfolk by a Top Doc at the Hergest Unit who had been the subject of many complaints of aggression and abuse herself. The young man had no understanding of what was happening to him, he didn’t even know where Norfolk was. His family engaged a lawyer who took the case to Appeal in London, only to be given a bollocking by the judge who maintained that he had every confidence that the Top Doc was acting in the best interests of her patient. This was a colleague of Dafydd’s…

Tony Francis grew up in Norfolk and when he was working at the Hergest Unit, his elderly father was still living in Norfolk.

 

Another major player in Sir and Lady Ralph’s neck of the woods is David Gifford Leathes Prior, Baron Prior of Brampton. Readers may remember that I covered Lord David’s previous on this blog not so long ago. Lord David was the Tory MP for North Norfolk, 1997-2001. Prior lost his seat to the Lib Dem Norman Lamb in 2001.

Prior was educated at Charterhouse School and Pembroke College, Cambridge, where he studied Law. During his time at Cambridge, Prior helped to launch the Cambridge University Industrial Society. He was Chairman of the Cambridge University Conservative Association and was elected an officer of Cambridge University Students’ Union.

From 1977–80, Prior worked for Lehman Brothers and Lazard Freres in New York, training as an investment banker and qualified as a barrister in 1976, becoming a member of Gray’s Inn. So Prior joined Dafydd’s mates Sir William Mars-Jones and Lady Brenda Hale in Gray’s Inn.

Lord Prior was seconded to the British Steel Corporation to work with Sir Ian MacGregor, before MacGregor was used as Thatch’s hatchet man to destroy the coal industry and the NUM. Prior was appointed Managing director of British Steel Service Centres Ltd and later appointed Commercial Director British Steel, establishing joint ventures in China, Turkey, Europe and North America.

Flintshire in north east Wales depended greatly on the steelworks at Shotton which of course suffered badly as a result of the Tories actions with regard to the UK steel industry in the 1980s.

On 31st March 1980, 6,500 workers at Shotton Steelworks were made redundant.
BBC - In pictures: Shotton Steelworks through the years

 

Perhaps Lord Prior can tell us all how, when the rest of Wales was being left to die on its feet after Thatch destroyed its industrial base, the Councillors and Labour politicians of north east Wales were so successful at extracting dosh from the Gov’t for ventures such as the Deeside Industrial Park? See previous posts. The Councillors and Labour politicians who had facilitated that paedophile ring with a very heavy presence in north east Wales, of which Sir Peter Morrison, the Tory MP for Chester, was a member…

Meet Lord Baz!

Lord Baz was educated at Hawarden Grammar School and Bangor Normal College. He worked as a teacher and was President of Flint NUT.

Lord Baz served as Shadow Secretary of State for Wales, Jan 1989-July 1992. This was his Party Leader:

After British Steel, David Prior managed a number of private steel and manufacturing businesses.

David Prior became Chief Exec of the Conservative Party, its Deputy Chairman and a member of the trade and industry select committee. Prior was acting Chairman of the Conservative Party in 2001, in post to deal with the aftermath of the Waterhouse Report and the angry yelling that it was a huge cover-up.

In 2002 Prior was appointed Chairman of the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital NHS Trust resigning in November 2006. On 14 November 2006, Prior was arrested, among others, by Norfolk Constabulary investigating allegations of financial irregularities at Cawston Park Hospital, previously known as Cawston College, a private psychiatric hospital in Cawston, Norfolk. He was cleared of involvement in the alleged fraud on 15 February 2007 and subsequently reappointed as Chairman of the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital NHS Trust. In 2009, Prior was invited to be Chairman of Ormiston Victory Academy in Norwich. He founded and Chairs two free schools, the Jane Austen College and Sir Isaac Newton Free School, a sixth-form college. Prior is also the Chairman of Norwich Primary Academy. In 2012, he became a Trustee of the Inspiration Trust. From 2005-2009, Prior was Chairman of Friends of Families House.

On 28 January 2013 David Prior was appointed as Chairman of the Care Quality Commission. In April 2014 Prior had a hip replacement operation paid for by private insurance but was treated in a public ward at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital NHS Trust.

In March 2015 Prior told a conference that “the role of the market is hugely limited in health and social care, in part because many of the people who need care the most – as many homeless people are – are often unheard; they have no power. The market requires people with power, people who can choose [in order to bring improvement]. In healthcare that’s not the case.” His stance appeared to conflict with the assumptions underlying the Health and Social Care Act 2012.

On 14 May 2015 David Prior was appointed a junior Minister for Health by Cameron. In May 2015, Prior also picked up his peerage. In the midst of the Macur Review…

On 21 December 2016, Prior was appointed as junior Minister at the Dept for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. A large part of this role was the development of the Gov’ts new industrial strategy. Prior resigned from the Gov’t in October 2017.

I have previously blogged about David and the utterly sordid role played by his father, Lord Jim Prior, in the concealing of the Westminster Paedophile Ring, Dafydd’s gang and most sordid of all, the paedophile ring at Kincora. Kinocora was particularly dreadful, because being serious crime in the throes of the Troubles in N Ireland, Kincora involved even more members of the British security services at war with each other, even more murders and torture etc. Jim Prior was Thatcher’s loyal N Ireland Secretary, 14 Sept 1981-27 Sept 1984. Which almost exactly covered my time as a student at UCNW,  when the institution was a vehicle for facilitating the trafficking gang run by Dafydd, which was directly linked to Kincora.

During that time, murder threats to Brown were ignored, Brown was left to look after me by himself when I was quite seriously ill and as I began to recover I was referred to Gwynne the lobotomist who behaved insensitively and indecently. After we complained, Brown and I were openly threatened by Dr D.G.E. Wood. We knew other students who had been targeted by the gang as well. See eg. post ‘Than Just A Language Divide?’ It was while Jim Prior was colluding with murder and paedophilia in N Ireland that Brown and I were placed under surveillance by the security services, which involved various people eg. Leslie Gore, Naomi Grunfeld and Patricia Margaret Edwards aka Trishles causing us much needless expense, time and energy. See previous posts. More recently I was told that in 1984, during an injury repair at the C&A Hospital in Bangor, I was given a transfusion with blood that known to be infected (see previous posts). I’m happy to say that I’ve defied the dear old Top Docs once again, I don’t seem to have developed Hep B or HIV, but other people did.

Ah the doctors they were wonderful!

So imagine my surprise when I discovered that shortly after I’d blogged about Lord Jim’s son, who definitely knows a great deal of what his father got up to, Lord Jim’s son who was arrested on suspicion of fraud in relation to matters involving a private psychiatric hospital, Lord Jim’s son who hasn’t really shown that much support for NHS provision, that Lord Jim’s son was given a new job!

On 5 September 2018, David Prior was invited to attend a pre-appointment hearing with the Health Select Committee and was subsequently appointed Chair of NHS England. David Prior’s appointment was for four years from 31 October 2018. What better hands could NHS England have found itself in?

As an added extra, David Prior is also Chairman of UCH. Previous blog posts have discussed many of the folk down at UCH who knew Dafydd and/or his gang and who protected them, as well as those who have been involved in very questionable research. Members of Dafydd’s gang were referring patients from north Wales to people at UCH who seemed every bit as mad as Dafydd et al.

Professor Fergus Lowe and the School of Psychology at Bangor University have a very chummy relationship with UCH and UCL.

Well, now that David Prior is Chairman of NHS England – no doubt at least part of the goodwill towards him on the part of Gov’t results from the favours that his old dad did Thatch and the crap that Lord David has on so many people – I’d better supply a bit more information on Lord Jim. Jim went back before Thatch’s reign, in fact Jim went back a very long way.

Jim served as the Tory MP for Waveney in Suffolk, 1959-87, so Jim was elected just before Profumo, to a seat in Suffolk on the patch of John Allen and Lord Bristol when Lord Bristol was learning the ropes re using class A drugs and rent boys as a young man…

Jim Prior was Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, 1970-72, under Heath. That sounds benign, but remember, Lord Lloyd Kenyon, who served as President of UCNW for nearly four decades until he was deposed in 1982 as a result of the inter-gwerin war, had two big interests, Agriculture and Health. Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor, the 6th Duke of Westminster and Carlo’s close friend was also an agriculturalist. Lord Kenyon and the Duke of Westminster both had numerous links to those involved in the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. Lord Kenyon’s son Thomas Tyrell-Kenyon was known to be sexually using at least one boy in the care of the Social Services in north Wales; it was recorded on his records, yet there was no attempt to stop the exploitation and Thomas was never charged. Thomas died from an AIDS related illness in 1993. The Dept of Agriculture at UCNW had a great deal to do with Dafydd and the gang. Mary Wynch was employed as a Secretary in the Dept when Dafydd and the gang went after her. Mary’s initial battle with the gang began in 1972…

Trumpers, friend of Savile, was junior Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, June 1987-Sept 1989, under Minister John Selwyn Gummer and then John MacGregor. Kids of 12 gang-raped? Stuff and Nonsense…

Baroness Trumpington 2011.jpg

John Major appointed Gillian Shephard Secretary of State for Employment, then Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, in 1993. The year that Gwynedd Social Services encouraged one of their social workers to commit perjury – again, she’d done it twice before – by stating that I’d screamed and sworn at her in Safeways, such that she thought that I was about to violently assault her…

 

Although the Dept of Agriculture at UCNW during the 1980s and 90s was full of the maddest, most incompetent dysfunctionals that one could ever imagine and was haemorraging students at a truly impressive rate, an agricultural economist called Richard Howarth was appointed as an adviser to Thatch. This was a Dept which ran a university farm which was so badly mismanaged that it went bankrupt. Twice. College Farm was such a liability that it was one of the reasons why UCNW was in such dire straits financially. Nonetheless, there was the Eurosceptic Richard Howarth and his side kick Terry Thomas jetting off to meet Gov’t Ministers – the Agriculture Ministers – and big wigs to dispense advice.

I guessed that it was all related to Dafydd and the gang and Sir Peter Morrison and Carlo, but I’ve been told recently that it was related to me as well. I was one of the students who, in the first year at Bangor, changed course to botany and waved the dear old dysfunctionals of the Agri Dept goodbye. However I had Seen What Was Going On and I was mates with people who knew even more and because we were all under surveillance it got back to Paedophilia HQ that I and my mates needed to be shafted after graduation lest people in professional positions came forward with damning memories a few years later…

It all fell apart for Professor Richard Howarth in the mid-1990s when he disappeared from Bangor University, was dropped by Gov’t and stopped being touted as a genius by his mate Richard Body, the MP who wrote the ‘Old Muckspreader’ column in ‘Private Eye’. See previous posts. Richard Howarth was last heard of running a B&B with his wife. So somewhere out there are people who have had their Full English Breakfasts cooked by one of Thatcher’s advisers.

Made up in Britain: Full Breakfast : Full British ...

Perhaps Richard Howarth was assassinated like Thatch’s other adviser Airey Neave:

Neave was killed in 1979 and his death was at the time attributed to Irish republican activity. It is now one of the murders of those close to Thatch that is thought may have been carried out because the targets were believed to be involved with organised child abuse.

 

Gentleman Jim was Leader of the House and Lord President of the Council, Nov 1972-March 1974. The role of Lord President of the Council brings with it the role of the visitor for the University of Wales, which at that time, included the colleges of Bangor and Aberystwyth. Gentleman Jim was in post while Dafydd and the gang ran UCNW and while Aber continued to churn out bent lawyers who then spent their working lives colluding with criminality, including that of Dafydd et al. Throughout the 1970s and the early part of the 1980s there were ructions at UCNW. It manifested itself as strife associated with Welsh language activism, but the gang were the cause of it. See post ‘Meet The Gwerin!’.

It was in 1973 that Matt Arnold and Peter Howarth relocated from Axwell Park Approved School in Gateshead to Bryn Estyn. Arnold and Howarth had been part of the ring in the north east of England which was linked to Dafydd’s gang and when they got to Bryn Estyn they greatly expanded on the ring that was already in existence in north Wales. Matt Arnold was appointed Head of Bryn Estyn after the previous Head was killed in a car crash, along with his wife and young son. The Deputy Head of Bryn Estyn was killed in the crash as well. Later that year Arnold gave his old pal Howarth a job at Bryn Estyn.

Jim retired from Parliament at the June 1987 General Election and was created a life peer on 14 October 1987. In the weeks preceding June 1987, Dafydd and the gang, in collaboration with the Home Office, Risley Remand Centre and the Mental Health Act Commission, hatched an elaborate plan to get me up to north Wales just after the General Election – I was living in Leicester with Brown at the time – and then frame me for a serious offence which would result in me being held on remand in Risley Remand Centre. The gang were at fever pitch because Mr Big, Prof Oliver Brooke of St George’s Hospital Medical School, had been imprisoned in Dec 1986 for the possession of child porn and it looked as if the net was in danger of closing in on them all. Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane came to their rescue in May 1997, by cutting Ollie’s sentence on Appeal and subsequently releasing him. The plan to have me banged up just after Ollie was a free man once again fell apart when a nursing officer and a police sergeant didn’t tell as many lies as required. See post ‘Hey, Hey DAJ, How Many Kids Did You Kill Today?’ for details and the political context at the time.

Patient F was also fitted up and imprisoned by the gang in 1986, after challenging social workers about the ill-treatment of boys in the Ty Newydd children’s homes in Bangor, although I didn’t know F at that time.

 

In April 1992, days after John Major won the General Election, Jim Prior’s former fellow resident of Suffolk, John Allen, invited some young men to a party in Brighton, telling them that he would meet them there. John Allen never turned up but a firebomber did. Five people died and a few more who survived were found dead in the following months and years. There were a number of people among the dead who had been kids in care in north Wales or witnesses to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. See post ‘The Silence Of The Welsh Lambs’.


 

Other fires of note include the one which engulfed Bertrand Russell’s granddaughter Lucy, who died after setting light to herself – at least it is presumed that it was she who had set light to herself – in April 1975 in the forecourt of a Penzance churchyard (see post ‘So Who Was Angry About What?’).

Bertrand Russell’s children John Conrad Russell (Lucy’s dad, although she had spent much of her young life living with Bertrand Russell after he deemed John too mad to care for her) and Lady Katherine Tait, both went to Dartington Hall, the progressive school in Devon. There are allegations that an abuse ring existed at Dartington Hall. John and Katherine also both studied at the University of California. John went on to Harvard and then served in the RNVR, along with so many others who found out about Lord Mountbatten etc via that route. Katherine Tait studied at Radcliffe College, the women’s option when Harvard was men only. Radcliffe College was fully integrated with Harvard by 1999.

Another fire of significance was the one which was the result of spontaneous combustion which killed Lord Maelor in Nov 1984. Lord Maelor aka Thomas Jones had served as the Labour MP during the 1950s and 60s for the constituency in which Bertrand Russell, Sir Clough and their friends lived. Lord Maelor’s brother James Jones served as the Labour MP for Wrexham during the years that the boys at Bryn Estyn and Bryn Alyn, both near Wrexham, were abused by Dafydd’s gang. See previous posts.

Other fires was the one that burnt down Patient F’s house in Carneddi, Bethesda in 1986 or thereabouts, which was always attributed to Patient F sending the place up in flames as a result of a drug induced psychosis, but since beginning this blog I have been told that F didn’t succeeded in setting the house on fire; when F went up into the mountains, someone else went in and set the place ablaze.

There was the King’s Cross Fire, in Nov 1987, which I have been told was meant to kill me; I was due to be passing through at the time of the fire, but I’d been delayed.

Another more recent fire which killed a witness to much wrongdoing happened in Ireland some six years ago. In the 1990s, the witness who died as a result of this fire in lived in Carneddi with his wife and a lot of children. The family were quite chaotic and were seriously short of money, but the young parents doted on the kids. Those Who Help were livid because the mother of the children Refused Contraception no matter how much the gang of paedophiles tried to force it on her, because she was a Catholic but she also liked having a big family. When he was in middle age, the father of this family developed serious mental health problems. All pleas for help were ignored. One gets Sex Therapy – at least if one is female – Screening and Contraception in north Wales, because these present ample groping/trafficking opportunities. What was not available was meaningful help for seriously ill people. The man from Carneddi remained on good terms with his wife and by then young adult children, but he started living in barns, turning up at Bangor University trying to gatecrash the graduation ceremonies etc. He was disorientated but never worryingly aggressive. Then he went to Ireland. His dead body was found after someone had set him on fire…

Owza about that then Bethesda surgery? You tried to stop a loving young couple from having children because you had a problem with their religion of all things, yet when one of them became very ill years later you stood by and watched until someone murdered him.

Ah the doctors they were wonderful!

But then I know a midwife based in Holyhead who ordered a pregnant woman’s family to ‘have those dogs put down’ – three dogs, the family pets – while at the same time she was colluding with Gwynedd Social Services and Top Docs to conceal the offences of two child abusers by pointing the finger at an innocent man…

Fires that never got off the ground were those which were supposed to set my house alight on a number of occasions but didn’t do the trick. Although one involving fireworks exploded in my dog’s face. At the time I was living just down the road from Ioan Bowen Rees, the Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council, who, according to his obituarist Meic Stephens, was a man who identified with The People not the elites. I don’t think that Meic Stephens lived in Bethesda but he knew that Ioan, living in his Plas secluded from the rest of the village, was no man of the Common People. See post ‘I Know Nuzzing…’

Note to Englishers who believe that north Wales was full of Welsh Nash who set fire to holiday homes: No, north Wales was host to Dafydd’s gang, who favoured using the purifying flame to deal with people who had spilt their pints. The second homes that went up a treat were a useful muddying of the waters and the consensus of opinion was that it was all the work of the security services, who were of course helping old Dafydd et al anyway…

 

David Prior’s dad Lord Jim took part in some interviews with members of Parliament and the recordings and transcripts are available. Here is the introductory spiel to Lord Jim’s interview:

At Cambridge, Prior did not join the Union or a political party. He became a professional farmer, and had little political experience when, on his first attempt, he was elected to represent Lowestoft in 1959….During Margaret Thatcher’s government he was Secretary of State for Employment (1979-1981) and Secretary of State for Northern Ireland (1981-1984), although he was regarded as out of sympathy with some of the views of the Prime Minister and the right of the conservative party.

Like Ian Gilmour, there was always much discussion as to how Jim Prior, a ‘wet’, ever found his way into Thatch’s Cabinet. I’ll give you all three guesses…

Here are the highlights from the summary of Lord Jim’s interview. Read it and weep:

Grew up in Norwich, went to Boarding School. Father was a lawyer who went into business, mother was a Christian social worker. Father loved racing, gambling, Norwich football club etc: mother got religious but hated everything father enjoyed.. father voted Tory, mother probably a reluctant Tory –a “wet”-… Inherited most political beliefs from Charterhouse House Master and Head Master –Robert Birley –“Red Robert” – Remained lifelong influence.  Impressed by abject poverty of the time –mother made them visit families on poor estates locally. Birley’s views on freedom and responsibility also important. Didn’t see politics as main aim in life –wanted to go into agriculture and have a farm.  At University didn’t join Union or Party. World of agriculture –bad state between the wars. Used to visit bankrupt farms with his father (Official Receiver), saw terrible scenes of poverty. War/post-war boom. A professional farmer –not a “knight of the shires” with inherited land and servants etc.  Was surprised when he visited Lord Carrington’s estate that he actually knew about farming.

Thatcher’s Cabinet, 1980:

An Everyday Story Of Lord Carrington’s Estate:

  • How Margaret Thatcher reset the status quo of British ...

 

Comfortably–off family; mother had inherited money –but badly invested; Church Missionary Society was main beneficiary…. Contemporaries at school and college –Simon Raven (author) was friend at school. No interest in politics at all at Cambridge. Aware of post-war changes under Labour. He was a “private enterprise man” –wanted to make some money through farming.

Small black pigs eat from the trough. Back view. Stock Photo

Had no money of his own.  By 1950/1 he did some canvassing in Norwich North for Tory candidate –thought it might be interesting…National Service experiences –platoon of public school men and cockneys – good friendships. Found he could work with anyone. Enjoyed his service. Political ambitions began. Working as Farm Manager for John Hill, who fought a by-election in 1955 for South Norfolk seat. Liked him, so helped him as a “warm up” speaker. Developed interest in politics… asked to put himself forward as candidate for Lowestoft… no doubt that he was going to get selected. Labour seat, but candidate was popular but old and tired.  Didn’t think he would beat him… If he hadn’t won he probably wouldn’t have carried on trying.  No idea what political life would be like – never been to House of Commons before he got there. Lack of experience… meant he was a hopeless speaker and debater.. “The most inexperienced and apolitical person who ever got into politics”.   Balancing business life, family and politics to fight campaign.  Lost his job, had to buy a farm; got a mortgage from friend of father. Now his own boss –could spend what time he liked on politics/farming. Became harder when he got into politics –having young children and needing to find somewhere to live in London.  Deplorably badly paid as MP in those days –couldn’t have done it without farming income.  Had bought land v cheaply and built it up. Was able to send children away to school. Private income was £2-3,000 per year to start with.  Impossible to exist on MP’s salary alone. As young MP tried to get a few part-time jobs – failed to get taken on by anyone. Thought Whips would find him “one or two cosy directorships in the City –never happened to me at all” Happened to colleagues if they got their affairs into desperate states. Then most Tory MPs had quite a bit of money and many Labour MPssupported by unions.   At 1959 Election a number of “fairly racy types” got elected unexpectedly under Macmillan and they had to be supported –“Whips bought their loyalty by finding them directorships” 
No help from Government –only got free railway warrant for weekly trip to constituency. No Postage, secretarial expenses, cost of living expenses, research etc. Did constituency work with part time secretary…
1959 campaign for Lowestoft….Youngman not expecting to win. Local issues important; national issues –took advantage of Macmillan’s popularity.   Little support from national party –not a critical seat so left to himself. Small local party with a few good supporters and his own friends. Constituency party not v active between elections…not on official candidates list; was interviewed in London. Chosen because he was local. Another competitor was a woman from London – but in those days women were going to find it impossible to get a seat, especially in Lowestoft. Labour sitting candidate thought he was safe –but swing in country towards Tories. Election didn’t cost him anything…Started to build contactsattended Backbench committees e.g. Agriculture… Became Secretary of Agriculture Committee, then eventually Parliamentary Private Secretary to President of Board of Trade (Government was suffering from lack of knowledge about agriculture). Kept on as Secretary…Didn’t take life deadly serious –didn’t expect to hold seat with smallmajority.

Ambitious to make his mark; disappointed not to get a job after Night of the Long Knives. Then given chance to go to America on Scholarship –“a douceur” from party.  Chief Whip Martin Redmayne didn’t bother to train people much or look far ahead but he was coming to notice of people –e.g. seconded the Queen’s Speech in 1962 – public mark of favour and got to know Macmillan… He was first person to introduce Private Member’s Bill on Disablement.  Not the intense politics in the 1960s of later years –nowadays more driven by career politicians.  Then there were fewer committed, ideological politicians. They had to do other things to support themselves…

He still gets 4-5 invitations to functions every day, even having been absent from Parliament for some time.  Culture of Lobbying became apparent when he returned form Northern Ireland –enormous change (early 1980s). Industry felt it had to get its view across more. Charity movement became more about Pressure Groups –operated through constituencies and press.  After leaving Government and joining GEC he found that they had to use PR people to get their case across to Ministers –“once the PR game had really started, we all had to join in

MIND became one hell of a powerful lobbying force. MIND was always ready to explain that it needed big grants from Gov’t because the general public all impose Stigma upon the Empowered Service Users and Won’t Give to charidees Helping Nutters.

…Aware of his own involvement with GEC as being useful for influence. Got out of hand though –including charities –mentions his own work with Great Ormond Street.

The Great Ormond Street of Jimmy Savile’s ‘volunteering’, of Audrey Callaghan’s Chairmanship of Trustees, while she and Jim Callaghan colluded with Dafydd, Jimmy Savile et al…

….1960/70s used to get calls from BBC to do contributions “down the line” from un-manned Norwich studio…
Working life of MP…encouraged not to speak in first six months.  Employment Bill 1959 affected his constituency, so he made maiden speech  -never more than 15-20 people in Chamber. Fuss about his comments on farm workers’ pay…Row about his involvement with  Birds Eye reception in House of Commons to announce expansion in Lowestoft.  Upset older members –“propaganda”. Working hours –Monday mornings to Thursday night. Two mornings in Standing Committees –to makeup numbers without speaking. Constituency work.  Was lent a flat in London then rented a flat for £8 per week in Westminster. No allowances for it.  Wife came up with him. Two children at Boarding School, two others went to Day School in London. Pact that during Term time wife would spend time with him in London and during holiday she would spend all the time in Suffolk with children…Having wife in London helped build relationships with other members –via kitchen suppers etc.
Few relationships with members of other parties –until he got into Government. Time spent in Chamber –a lot to start with, less afterwards….Was a supporter of Margaret. Heath had called him in 1966 to discuss appointing Thatcher to Shadow Cabinet –“statutory woman” for Social Services –he suggested Thatcher. Willie Whitelaw had advised against -“if we get her, and we don’t like her, we’ll never be able to get rid of her”!

That is exactly what happened.

In government as Sec of State for Education she got into trouble over School Milk. Heath helped her –but never liked her…

Supporter of National Health Service but wanted some competition in it and less bureaucracy…. Culture of Parliament – “Conservative Party was always sycophantic” – would usually go along with leadership.  People plotted in tea room, although many members never went there; not a hub of activity. Workload pretty light in early years…Some MPs got no letters at all.  On important matters, MPs could have influence; on other matters they let government get on with it… Influences on his career –Ian Gilmour, Robert Carr, Peter Carrington, Quintin Hailsham all close friends.  Rivals were of different political disposition e.g. Margaret Thatcher was one, Airey Neave was another. Had lots of political enemies on the Right on the Backbenches…Relationship with Margaret –always slightly difficult and got worse over time –“she was jolly glad when I left”…But in Agriculture and Employment he knew what he wanted to do –and didn’t want to do toomuch  -resisted pressure from people to do more. Remained as a practising farmer –not seen then as a conflict of interest e.g. over subsidies he was also drawing…

Small black pigs eat from the trough. Back view. Stock Photo

Role as Secretary of State for Northern Ireland – effects on lifestyle. security constraints –“they were trying to blow me up” …You are the number one person, allocated a budget to run the Province as you decided –v interesting. Example of World Cup where N Ireland did well –he promised them a new Stand for football ground – could do it without reference to Margaret or Treasury –one snag caused by the sectarian rules of the footballing organisation.  Thatcher’s visits – visit by road gave her the impression we were spending too much money there.  “We had plenty of money!”  Frustration was the inability to make any movement  -he was in too much of a hurry. Talks about elections where Sinn Fein got a slice of the vote.

Biggest achievement Cynics would say, enabling Heath to remain in office for four years as PM (as PPS he helped him deal with recalcitrant party).

Gee, however did a wet like Jim Prior bag a Cabinet seat under Thatch? He was Heath’s PPS – there’s the clue everyone… Heath the friend of Charles Morrison, Sir Peter Morrison’s brother and the Tory MP for Devizes…

His work as Employment Secretary the most important thing –sensible reform of unions –picketing, secret ballots etc. “reforms which they could take” Leader of the House – not noticed. Chaired Emergency Committee of Cabinet –lots of them  -“we were always turning the lights out” Deciding where emergency generators would go in Three Day Weeks period.  Leaving Office after 1974 election –“awful! Sad, unbecoming”. Leaving in 1984 was a relief….Happy to leave. Time to try something else. Had joined GEC as chairman…
Most misses having influence on things that could be handled better and where he could help.  Influence from Lords doesn’t work e.g. Thatcher’s fall from office – Lords went on with business oblivious to it.  Commons and Government don’t listen much to the Lords…

Is it not incredible that this lazy old bugger who had no interest in and no knowledge of politics, who as a farmer shamelessly milked the EU CAP subsidies that his own Gov’t claimed to despise, who believed that he was not a wealthy man when all of his kids were at fee-paying schools, was allowed to do pretty much what he wanted in N Ireland while a civil war was taking place and a vicious paedophile ring linked to terrorist activity ran riot and the criminality spilt over onto mainland Britain?

Jim Prior was not the only East Anglian farmer who achieved fame in the 1980s. Whoever could forget Bernard Matthews and his bootiful factory farmed turkeys:

  • BBC - In pictures: Bernard Matthews dies at 80
  • @RutlandPartners Sells UK No. 1 Turkey Producer Bernard ...

Bernard was a millionaire who encountered much bad publicity when it became public that pay and conditions for his workforce were dreadful and that loads of them had incurred RSI and had become quite disabled but Bernard didn’t give a bugger. The ‘New Statesman’ published loads about it. But not a word about the murderous paedophile ring that Lord Jim ignored…

In my post ‘The Mrs Mills Experience’ I discussed the career of Dr Alfred Charles White, who has been a big wig in psychiatry in Birmingham for many years now. I detailed Dr White’s career, including his stint working as a junior doctor for Dafydd’s mate Professor Robert Bluglass and Professor William Trethowan. Trethowan, at approximately the time that Alfred White was working for him, was the member of the GMC who allowed the paedophile child psychiatrist Dr Morris Fraser to continue practising medicine. Fraser went on to sexually assault children. He was allowed to continue practising even after that… Morris Fraser was involved with the Kincora Boys’ Home and made a name for himself in the 1970s as an expert on the trauma suffered by children in N Ireland as a result of the Troubles. See previous posts.

Children’s homes in north Wales accepted a great many children in care from the local authorities in the West Midlands.

Dr White undoubtedly spent many years working with a number of Top Doctors who were members of a sex abuse ring. Among his many other commitments. Dr White has managed to take on private work with BUPA and has ‘over 25 years experience as an expert witness’.

Between July 1971 and July 1972, Dr Alfred Charles White worked as a SHO at the Midland Nerve Hospital for Mr M. Sim. Mr M. Sim is Myre Sim, another Great Man of Psychiatry. Myre Sim died in Aug 2009 and his obituary can be found on the website of the Royal College of Physicians Edinburgh. I have reproduced it below; I will not make any comment on it because I think that the worrying ways in which this man, who spent years working alongside Top Docs who were facilitating a paedophile/trafficking ring, exerted influence over his profession are glaring obvious. I will just invite readers to read the obituary carefully.

Dr Myre Sim.

Dr Myre Sim was a renowned and published psychiatrist who assisted many individuals and organisations through his long and successful career, in addition to making a major contribution to the medical community. He became a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh in 1970.

Dr Myre Sim was born in Edinburgh on October 2, 1915 to Julius and Sarah Sim, his grandparents having emigrated from Lithuania to Scotland at the end of the 18th Century. He was brought up and educated in his formative years in Edinburgh and graduated MBChB from Edinburgh University in 1938. Although he did not remain in Edinburgh to practice medicine, he retained a great fondness for the Edinburgh University Medical School and the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh.

He obtained his Diploma in Psychological Medicine from the Royal College of London in 1946, before entering the Army where he served as Regimental Medical Officer and Officer Commanding the Army Psychiatric Hospital in Netley. He then returned to the University of Edinburgh in 1948 for his M.D. After receiving his M.D. he was appointed to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham in 1950, where he developed the Department of Psychological Medicine and began his extensive writing career. His most successful work was a medical textbook, Guide to Psychiatry, which reached its 4th edition. He also co-authored a second textbook, Basic Psychiatry, and published many articles in the British Medical Journal, the Lancet, the British Journal of Psychiatry and the Journal of Neurology and Psychiatry. He also wrote a monthly medical column for the Birmingham Post and the Liverpool Post.

In 1975, at the age of 60, he moved to Ottawa assuming the role of Head of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Ottawa. He subsequently retired at 65, moving to Victoria, British Columbia where he continued a highly successful private practice in psychiatry for over 20 years. During these years, he helped countless individuals, acted as an expert witness in many legal actions and authored a number of medical publications including Compensation Claims, Insurance, Legal and Medical Aspects which he considered to be his best work.

Dr Myre Sim had strong interests and opinions on many matters both medical and non-medical. Many of his opinions can be found via the internet by searching for ‘Science Quotes by Myre Sim’. Perhaps two of his most well known are:

“I am concerned at the over-enthusiasm of unbridled reformers who initiate costly and frequently useless or even dangerous schemes. Progress is not synonymous with radicalism” quoted from ‘Myre Sim’, Gale, Contemporary Authors Online (2002)’.

“Sir Adolph Abrams, the physician, in lecture entitled Amanuensis, described a case history as an amalgam of false memories, rumour, innuendo and downright lies, and on these we are expected to make a diagnosis” quoted from book review, ‘Ending the Cycle of Abuse’, The Canadian Journal of Psychiatry, 1997; 42: 424.

He always accredited his successful career to his wife, Winnifred, who proof-read all of his publications. Sadly, Winnifred died in 2001 and following her death he lived alone until his failing health necessitated a move to St Charles Manor in 2008 where he was well cared for until his death.

Although Myre Sim was appointed a Fellow in 1970, the story of how the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh came to benefit from his donations started in 1984. Having previously contributed to the College Conference Centre Appeal, Myre Sim offered funds to set up a travel fund intended to support the professional development of Fellows and Collegiate Members. The College accepted readily. Further donations followed, leading to the establishment of the Myre Sim Education Fund. This fund had a wide remit which included support for symposia, lectures, workshops, the College Library, desk-top publishing and M.D. Theses. However, its main purpose was to encourage clinical research by doctors in non-academic positions. The Education Fund eventually transformed into the Myre Sim Charitable Trust, set up in Edinburgh but outwith the College. Later, in 1995, the Charitable Trust came under the management and trusteeship of the College. The Myre Sim Fund was formally established and has continued in that form to date, benefiting both Members and Fellows as well as medical students and medical graduates of the University of Edinburgh.

The Myre Sim Fund Committee meets twice a year and disburses the income generated by investments held as part of a wider portfolio. This is done through the award of grants to assist eligible individuals to further their professional competence and research activities; bursaries to students of the University of Edinburgh who elect to pursue a research project; and via direct support of College. The latter includes fund contributions towards the College Library, teaching symposia and on-line web casting of educational events. The Committee also oversees the award of the Collegiate Members’ prize. This prize, which is designed to encourage Collegiate Members to actively participate in research, is awarded biennially to the Collegiate Member who, in the opinion of the Committee, has published the best article in a high ranking peer-review journal.

In recent years, grants have been awarded to an international cohort of Fellows and Members and medical graduates of the University of Edinburgh for clinical research, for travel to worldwide meetings to present research work and to support the development of techniques of investigation and management of patients. Bursaries have been awarded to undergraduates of the University of Edinburgh for research in a diverse range of medical areas including the patient’s journey through healthcare and the effects of altitude and hypoxia in different countries, most recently in Peru.

Although the Fund is managed principally by the Committee, in accordance with its purposes, over the years Myre Sim has played a key part in steering and encouraging the Committee to broaden its scope. Consequently, the Fund has benefited a wide cohort of Fellows, Members and students and has retained a contemporary focus, demonstrated through the support of IT innovations such as CD production, e-learning initiatives and web-streaming. At this time, the capital reserve of the Fund, which is held in trust as a permanent endowment, is in the region of £600,000, giving an income of approximately £25,000 per annum. Despite Myre Sim’s passing, the activities of the Fund continue unabated under the careful management of the Myre Sim Committee.

Over the past 7 years, Professor Campbell as Convenor and Mr Nigel Owen, Deputy Chief Executive Officer and Head of Finance of the College have remained in regular contact with Dr Myre Sim advising him of the activities and financial status of the Fund. Throughout this period Dr Sim has maintained a great interest in the College and how his fund has been used to benefit others. The College is grateful for his long-standing generosity and interest, which has seen many Members and Fellows advance their careers and enabled undergraduates of the Edinburgh University Medical School to seize the opportunity to pursue medical research in their formative years.

‘To employ one sex abusing psychiatrist may be regarded as a misfortune; to employ two looks like carelessness.’ To have yet another bankrolling the Royal College of Physicians is quite extraordinary…

Dr Ernest Jones, who introduced Freudian analysis to Britain:

Ernest Jones.jpgBorn 1 January 1879, Gowerton, Wales

Died 11 February 1958 (aged 79), London, England

Nationality: Welsh

Alma mate: University College, London

Spouse(s): Morfydd Llwyn Owen (m. 1917; died 1918). Ernest managed to kill Morfydd by poisoning her with chloroform while performing abdominal surgery on her with one of his mates in her parents’ house in south Wales. Katharina Jokl (m. 1919)

Ernest Jones trained and influenced virtually all psychiatrists in the UK during the middle years of the 20th century. He knew Professor Wilfred Abse and Gwynne the lobotomist and he almost certainly lived long enough to encounter Dafydd as well.

Ernest’s son was Mervyn Jones, the author, who was a close friend of Michael Foot.

MIND has featured a great deal on this blog and indeed has featured in this post. I mentioned above that Dafydd’s pal Lord David Ennals was Chairman of MIND, 1984-89, while MIND was colluding with the criminality of Dafydd et al. The Vice-Chairman of MIND, 1984-88 was Hugh Freeman.

Professor Hugh Freeman was another big name in British psychiatry and was Editor of the British Journal of Psychiatry. Freeman died in 2011 and ‘The Guardian’ published his obituary:

Professor Hugh Freeman, who has died aged 81, was effective in changing mental health provision in Britain. He spent most of his professional life in Salford, Greater Manchester, where he was consultant psychiatrist to the city’s hospitals from 1961 until 1988.

Dafydd’s mate Professor Kenneth Rawnsley worked in psychiatry in Greater Manchester until he relocated to Cardiff in 1966. Tony Francis worked in Salford and Greater Manchester during the early 1980s, until he relocated to north Wales. Sadie Francis and Tony Roberts, both of the Hergest Unit, trained at Manchester University. In 1974, Dafydd’s mate Bob Hobson, who had run the abuse ring at the Maudsley, relocated to Manchester University…

Beginning in 1967, at Hope hospital and Salford Royal, he pioneered psychiatric units in general hospitals. This was at a time when the hospital was almost the entire focus of psychiatric treatment. Using the meagre resources he was given, Hugh greatly expanded day hospital and outpatient care, thus enabling seriously ill patients to be managed in various settings outside medical institutions.

He also initiated and maintained one of the first psychiatric case registers with the help of Mervyn Susser, Salford’s medical officer for mental health. Hugh was creating a new service responsive to the needs of a population in a poorly resourced industrial city, and he used the invaluable information from the case register to monitor its progress.

The ‘service’ at Manchester was very poor even after Hugh Freeman and Mervyn Susser had transformed it. Manchester’s mental health service struggled along on its knees until it finally imploded a few years ago, with mental health staff celebrating at the resignation of the psychiatrist whom they blamed for the mess. But he only resigned as Chair of the NHS Trust; he continued working as a Top Doc, ‘leading’ the service and also leading the mental health research programme in Manchester.

His concern was with the conditions in which people were treated in mental hospitals and the various ways in which admission could either be prevented or treatment given in community settings. He initiated teams of co-workers, such as mental health social workers, mental welfare officers, nurses and GPs, to create a system of referral which prevented many hospital admissions, by providing early treatment and alternative care.

Everyone was told that this was what was happening in north Wales. In reality, patients were neglected at best, assaulted and framed for criminal offences or found dead at worst.

Hugh was a thoughtful author of papers dealing with subjects as diverse as the history of the NHS, racial discrimination and psychiatry, particularly aspects of psychiatry in the community. His early work had been concerned with the effects of drugs, and as a young doctor, he published one of the first studies on the treatment of patients with schizophrenia with chlorpromazine.

As an old doctor, he knew just how disabling the effects of chlorpromazine were. He and his colleagues continued to dose people up nevertheless.

Several of his early papers dealt with behaviour therapy, others with the role of the social worker in the mental health service, and the kind of services that should be available for what were then called the “mentally subnormal”. Then, as now, there were problems with the reorganisation of the NHS and the shortages of suitable trainees in psychiatry.

Hugh knew exactly why no young doctors wanted to go near psychiatry…

For 10 years from 1983, Hugh was a highly successful editor of the British Journal of Psychiatry, taking it to great international heights.

Throughout that time, Dafydd and the gang broke the law in just about every way possible, abused patients, illegally imprisoned people and were not prosecuted or even investigated once.

He had been involved in the origins of Salford University and in 1986 was appointed honorary professorial fellow. He also acted as an editor of many multi-authored books and in 1988 started the international journal Current Opinion in Psychiatry, as well as being assistant editor of journals such as History of Psychiatry. His later books included Mental Health and the Environment (1985), Community Psychiatry (1991) and A Century of Psychiatry (1999).

I have mentioned in previous posts that in the wake of Mary Wynch, but particularly the police investigations into the possibility of a VIP paedophile ring in north Wales, psychiatrists suddenly all became Historians of Medicine. As they used to say on ‘Blue Peter’, John Nettleton tells the story…

In 1988 both he and his close Salford colleague Michael Tarsh went south to London, exuberantly leaving their retirement party on a tandem. In later years, Hugh helped to found the British False Memory Society,

I wonder why Hugh felt the need to do that?

and his last book, provisionally titled Cycles of Violence and not yet published, is concerned with the causes of terrorism. His wide circle of interests included being representative for the Mercia region of the National Trust

Lucille Hughes is involved with the National Trust. In the 1980s, at Penrhyn Castle near Bangor, the National Trust used to run a summer job scheme for disadvantaged people. Every one of them was a victim of Dafydd’s gang. They did enjoy working on the scheme, they had a real laugh. But it was a very effective way of marginalising them and keeping them together in one place, where they discussed being beaten up by the police, sexually molested, illegally imprisoned, overhearing what were possibly murders in Risley Remand Centre… The man who ran the work scheme, Wing Commander I.H. Panton, used to roll his sleeves up and work with his team, so they respected him. But the Wing Commander also knew what had happened to them and how very serious it was, yet he didn’t ever raise any concerns. See previous posts. I have also discussed in previous posts how some of those at the very top of the National Trust colluded with the wider Westminster Paedophile Ring.

and he was a keen supporter of the Woodland Trust. In 1997, he was appointed honorary visiting fellow at Green College, Oxford. He had many other visiting posts and honours in universities abroad.

The Bastard of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Lord John Walton, one of the biggest umbrellas that Dafydd et al had – particularly in Walton’s capacity as President of the GMC, 1982-89 and President of the BMA, 1980-82 – was Warden of Green College, 1983-89. Walton was in post at the BMA as soon as Mary Wynch got out of the North Wales Hospital and began her litigation against Dafydd and the gang…

Hugh was born in Salford and educated at Altrincham grammar school,

The abuse ring in north Wales/Cheshire upon which Dafydd et al built and expanded had been present for decades

from where he gained an open scholarship to read modern history at St John’s College, Oxford, a rare schoolboy among the ex-servicemen after the second world war. His scholarship subjects were all in the arts, but his family put pressure on him to read medicine. However, these early passions were the basis of his abiding interests in the history of psychiatry, as well as a restless concern about the way people live and how the service might be developed for them.

He qualified in 1954, and did his house jobs at the  Manchester Royal Infirmary

Kenneth Rawnsley was working in Manchester at the time

before serving as a captain in the Royal Army Medical Corps. Although not psychiatrically qualified, during his time in the army he was in sole charge of discharging men and dealing with violent alcoholics, and he took the first part of the diploma in psychological medicine in this time.

They’re only nutters and alkies, we don’t need anyone qualified to deal with them. They may have been violent because of psychosis or neurological factors rather than the booze, but Freeman won’t have known…Or a la North Wales Hospital and Hergest Unit, their ‘violence’ might actually have been someone assaulting them…

After the army he went on to the Maudsley hospital in London,

Freeman was probably at the Maudsley at the same time as Dafydd then. He was definitely there when Bob Hobson was running the ring in south London and Hobson’s many crazy, incompetent colleagues did damage to patients. See post ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’ and ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy…’

then became a consultant psychiatrist in Salford.

In 1957 he married Joan Casket, now better known as a professor of psychology and expert in gifted children. They were a mutual support to one another.

I’ll be getting onto Joan soon…

She survives him, along with three sons, Stephen, Justin and Felix, a daughter, Rachel, and two grandsons.

 Hugh Lionel Freeman, psychiatrist, born 4 August 1929; died 4 May 2011

Just a couple of years older than Dafydd…

‘The Times’ mourned Hugh Freeman’s passing as well:

Professor Hugh Freeman was a erudite and thoughtful psychiatrist with a deep concern for social issues. Born in Salford, he began his career as a 17-year-old, with an open scholarship at Oxford University. He completed his medical and psychiatric training at Manchester Royal Infirmary, followed by the Bethlem Royal and Maudsley Hospitals in London. Returning to his roots, he became a NHS consultant psychiatrist with Salford Health Authority, and an honorary consultant at the University of Manchester School of Medicine.

There he capitalised on his personal qualities, presciently pioneering and managing an integrated system of community care and record-keeping in a socially deprived area.

Freeman initiated and maintained the comprehensive Salford psychiatric case register, originally in association with the epidemiologist Dr Mervyn Susser. The objective of the register (bolstered by the studies that flowed from it), was to formulate public health goals. It made a serious contribution to health in the community.

Freeman’s primary problem was to integrate the very poor psychiatric resources he inherited, across three hospitals, into a service responsive to the needs of the people of Salford. In a period when the hospital was almost the entire focus of psychiatric treatments, he created that service, integrating the meagre resources and greatly expanding day hospital and outpatient care. At that time, this was ground-breaking.

It wasn’t that groundbreaking, by the time Freeman died, Manchester and Salford’s mental health services were at the centre of scandalously bad care

Freeman was always sensitive to the sense of community, social ties and networks that existed in a physically uncongenial industrial area. In Salford, he found long established kinships and friendships, going back several generations.

Like Dafydd, he’ll have had the whole extended family mapped, with a view to co-opting the unsupportive members or trashing the supportive ones in the face of complaint

He harnessed these into his system of care, treasuring constant little gifts such as a hand-knitted dishcloth or a small paper bag of boiled sweets.

A hand-knitted dishcloth?? I’d be quite pleased if someone gave me one of them, but I suspect that was a patient taking the piss; the Grand Professor Freeman will not really have communicated to his patients that he wanted a dishcloth, either hand-knitted or as a pack of six purchased in the market.

Working against the general trend of competition for resources, with the advantage of his personality and genuine charm,

They all have charm in their obituaries

Freeman was able to achieve his objectives through the help of mental welfare officers, mental health social workers and GPs. With their help, he set up a system of screening before hospital admission, so that when people arrived in the mental hospital they had organised relationships with those who were working outside.

That is not what I was told about Salford mental health services by someone who later committed suicide while in their ‘care’. Guess what? She had been at UCNW with me and had made a complaint about Gwynne the lobotomist… Found dead in Salford years later… They’ll have had her medical records, Mervyn Susser the case manager and Hugh won’t have missed that she’d encountered Gwynne and then Tony Francis…

Professionals came from all over the world to see what he had achieved in keeping people out of hospital.

Dafydd was described in the ‘Bangor and Anglesey Mail’ as ‘Europe’s Leading Forensic Psychiatrist’. At the Waterhouse Inquiry, the mental health services in Gwynedd were described as ‘probably the best in Europe’ by Rob Evans, who ignored the serious abuse of Empowered Service Users. The thugs of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team used to turn up to Bangor University seminars to hobnob with visiting German social workers.

But Freeman was pragmatic and pointed out that the hospital did not stand in opposition to community support, but was, as he wrote, “in fact part of the community, and provides one of its services.”

That is exactly the line that the Top Docs of the Hergest Unit used. I happen to agree with their point, but it was a line that was trotted out when the seriously dysfunctional relationships between the hospital and the community teams was questioned.

In accord with his wish for social justice and the focus of his concerns, he concentrated on chronic and progressive disorders.

Psychiatrists have been maintaining for years now that they prioritise the seriously and chronically ill. Then why are so many of them destitute, in prison, dying in their 50s or dependent upon family for their care? Anyone familiar with the UK mental health system knows that the most seriously ill are abandoned or even refused treatment. They are more difficult to look after than a professional person with anxiety and they are not a powerful lobbying group.

In addition to full time hands-on clinical commitments, in a very busy department, he wrote or edited more than two dozen books and hundreds of scientific papers.

Yes, Hugh churned them out. When did he have the time to perform the clinical miracles which were happening in Greater Manchester?

He was socially perceptive, with a quiet but effective leadership style that was exemplified in his being the founding editor, of Current Opinion in Psychiatry, and his very successful ten years as editor of the British Journal of Psychiatry, beginning in 1983. Freeman expanded the journal considerably, while vastly improving its financial base supporting his principal objective — the dissemination of scientific information.

How did the fraud that was Mindfulness get through the filtering system then?

Professor Freeman achieved international recognition, including a visiting professorship at the Universities of the West Indies, where he worked on setting up a mental health care service (removing the pre-existing double beds), Western Australia, Switzerland and Hungary.

He won the Anniversary Medal of Merit, Charles University, Prague, was a member of the committee of honour of the European Association for the History of Psychiatry, a fellow of the European Association of Psychiatrists, a consultant to the World Health Organisation,

Dafydd’s mate was both International and Award Winning…

and a government advisor to the Mental Health Act Commission,

The Chief Exec of the MHAC was Willing Bingley. Who had been previously been the Legal Director of MIND, when Hugh Freeman was er the Vice-Chair of MIND…

the Home Secretary’s Committee on fear of crime, and the Minister of State’s panel on private practice.

Both the Home Office and the DHSS were fully on board with Dafydd and the gang.

Despite his eminence, Freeman was modest, considerate, kindly and respectful of the opinions of others. He had always been an innovator, devoting his early endeavours to improving community psychiatry, but over the past 20 years was very active in founding the False Memory Society.

The False Memory Society caused havoc with regard to cases of abuse; but that is exactly what the False Memory Society was set up to do. Because organised historical abuse had come under the spotlight.

His group work on research into terrorism will be published next year as Circle of Violence. He was a strongly appreciated supporter of Sane,

SANE was established by Marjorie Wallace, the Thalidomide Heroine! The Marjorie who was married to a Top Doc who was colluding with abuse and who also had an affair with Lord Snowdon who used the services of Top Docs who supplied class A drugs and sex workers. SANE’s main campaigning point was to stop the closure of asylums. I wrote to Marjorie in 1988 and gave her full details of what Dafydd et al were doing. I did not receive a reply. Marjorie was a regular visitor to Broadmoor while Jimmy Savile was the General Manager and assaulting patients. Marjorie did not mention any concerns until after Savile was dead. At which point she told everyone that he was mad and she’d never liked him. See post ‘One Dangerous Fucker’ for more Marjorie info…

Savile became General Manager of Broadmoor during those years when Hugh Freeman edited the British Journal of Psychiatry, but it obviously escaped Hugh’s notice.

and active in the World Psychiatric Association. He was also involved with the National Trust as the representative for the Mercia Region, the preservation of woodlands and the protection of ancient buildings He leaves behind his widow, Professor Joan Freeman, who is eminent in her own field of education and gifted children, and his children Stephen, Justin, Felix and Rachel.

Professor Hugh Freeman, psychiatrist, was born on August 4, 1929. He died on May 4, 2011, aged 81

A helpful blog written by a Top Doc about Hugh Freeman tells us that:

Freeman will probably be best known to list members as one of the founders of the journal, History of Psychiatry and the editor of a number of essay collections on the history of psychiatry in Britain.  These include the two volume, 150 Years of British Psychiatry (London: Gaskell/Athlone, 1991 and 1996) edited with German Berrios;  A Century of Psychiatry, (London: Mosby-Wolfe, 1999),  and Psychiatric Cultures Compared: Psychiatry and Mental Health Care in the Twentieth Century (Amsterdam: Amsterdam University Press, 2005) edited with Marijke Gijswijt-Hofstra, Harry Oosterhuis and Joost Vijselaar.

Hugh has determined what the world knows about psychiatry, its practices and of course the practices of his colleagues and of course Hugh himself.

After retiring as consultant psychiatrist to Salford Health Authority, Freeman was engaged in large scale history of psychiatric policy in post war Britain under the supervision of John Pickstone.  Parts of this work have been published including:

‘Mental Health: Policy and Practice in the NHS’, Journal of Mental Health 7.3 (1998): 225-39.

‘Mental Health Services in an English County Borough before 1974’, Medical History 28 (1984): 111-28.

Now for Hugh’s lovely, talented psychologist wife!
Joan Freeman is a child psychologist who is known for her work in the lifetime development of gifts and talents. Freeman earned her BSc in psychology at Manchester University followed by an Advanced Diploma in School Counselling, an MEd in Education and a PhD in Educational Psychology. Freeman then taught at Preston Polytechnic/Lancaster University, where she was a Senior Lecturer. She then became a Research Associate at Manchester University and later, Lecturer at the UCL Institute of Education.
 
In 2006 the College of Teachers, of which Joan was Senior Vice-President, awarded her an Honorary Fellowship.
Was the Senior Vice-President on the panel who decided on the awarding of Honorary Fellowships??
In 2014, Mensa International awarded Joan a Lifetime Achievement Award. Jimmy Savile used to bang on about being in Mensa.
Joan was also awarded the First European Talent Networking Award, for the promotion of Europe-wide co-operation in support of young talented people.
So Joan is international as well as her husband.
Joan Freeman was made an Honorary Patron of the National Association for Able Children in Education (NACE) in 2006. She has an elected fellowship with the British Psychological Society, where she has been honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007. Joan is also a Chartered (Licensed) Psychologist.

Freeman’s ‘ongoing aim is to inspire a scientific approach to the study and development of high-level potential, and to develop a dynamic communications network of knowledge and practice around the world’. I think that Joan’s got quite a steep hill to climb there…

Freeman’s most significant research contribution to the field of child development has been her unique 35-year in-depth UK comparative study of 210 gifted and non-gifted children as they grew to adulthood. This was funded by the Gulbenkian Foundation and the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation. ‘This groundbreaking research showing the lives of the gifted and talented as normal people with special challenges helped to make positive changes in attitudes to the development of high level potential all over the world. The research was noted for its depth of investigation and scientific set-up, notably with double matched control groups.’

Freeman was an adviser on the education of the gifted and talented for about eight years for the UK Gov’t and primary witness to the Standing Committee on the education of Highly Able Children.

The UK Gov’ts Gifted and Talented scheme was not a resounding success…

Joan founded and was President of the Tower Education Group, a think tank of UK experts which reported to the Education Development Trust.

In 1988 Freeman established the European Council for High Ability, bringing cooperation across the West and the Soviet zone. It became a Council of Europe NGO and is ‘now a flourishing worldwide organisation of which she remains founding President and honorary member.’ It publishes the academic journal ‘High Ability Studies’, of which Freeman was editor-in-chief; she is now on their international advisory board.

I’ll look forward to reading some of Joan’s papers in there then, if they pass the rigorous scrutiny of the editor-in-chief that is.

Hugh Freeman’s friend and colleague Mervyn who presided over the mess that was Salford’s mental health service certainly boasted of some even more impressive friends that Hugh Freeman. Mervyn Wilfred Susser (26 September 1921 – 14 August 2014) was a South African activist, Top Doctor and epidemiologist. His career was closely interwoven with that of his wife, Zena Stein. Susser is considered to be one of the pioneers of epidemiology in the 20th century. As is Sir Richard Doll, but Doll did rather let himself down on a few occasions, particularly when his name appeared as an ‘adviser’ on that laughable research fraud that Dafydd’s mates published in Dec 1990… See previous posts for details of Richard Doll’s feet of clay.

 

Mervyn Wilfred Susser was born in Johannesburg. As a boy, he learned to track game in the wild. His mother committed suicide when he was a child. His parents enrolled him in a Catholic girls’ school because it was the best education available before later switching to an unspecified boys’ school several hundred miles away.

Susser married Zena Stein in 1949. Susser and Stein three children: including Ezra Susser, Ruth Susser and Ida Susser.

Susser, Stein and colleagues began their careers at a clinic in Alexandra Township, where they developed ties with members of the Anti-Apartheid Movement, including Joe Slovo, Walter Sisulu and Nelson Mandela. 

Susser and Stein were influenced and mentored by Sidney Kark. In 1955, Susser and Stein left South Africa for political reasons, taking positions at Manchester University, where they stayed for 10 years. In 1965, Susser and Stein moved to Columbia University to lead the Division of Epidemiology. At Columbia, Susser founded the Gertrude H. Sergievsky Center, where he held a Chair.

Towards the end of their careers, Susser and Stein became increasingly concerned about the HIV epidemic both in New York and in South Africa. They helped to organise a conference in Maputo in April 1990, which aimed to alert the ANC about the HIV epidemic in South Africa, with limited effect. Susser, Stein and colleagues, worked on building scientific capacity in Southern Africa to deal with the HIV epidemic and Susser and Stein served as early Directors at the Africa Centre for Health and Population Studies, a research centre in Northern KwaZulu-Natal.

Mervyn Susser died on 14 August 2014 in New York.

On learning of Susser’s death, aged 92, Section 27 issued the following statement:

His contribution to the fight against the HIV pandemic cannot be overstated. Dr Susser served as the joint director of the newly founded Africa Centre for Population and Reproductive Health Research in Kwazulu-Natal with his wife Dr Zena Stein in 1999. Mervyn and Zena were instrumental in highlighting the possible impact of the HIV pandemic in South Africa from the late 1980s. He worked alongside Dr. Salim (Slim) Abdool Karim to submit the first successful application to Fogarty in 1993 which sought to build strategic, sustainable scientific capacity to enhance the response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic in South Africa, Lesotho, Namibia and Swaziland.

 

 

  • It was known that there were difficulties dealing with the HIV epidemic in South Africa because of political reasons. The situation was not helped by Thabo Mbeki, President of South Africa, 1999-2008, maintaining that HIV did not cause AIDS. Health Minister Manto Tshabalala-Msimang’s ban of anti-retroviral drugs in public hospitals is estimated to have been responsible for the premature deaths of between 330,000 and 365,000 people.

But then Mervyn Susser knew that Dafydd’s gang had been responsible for infecting a great many kids in care with HIV, who in turn infected many other people when the gang forced them to work as rent boys. Susser did not say a word.

  • Zena Stein is currently Emeritus Professor of Epidemiology and Psychiatry at Columbia University. Stein and Susser spent a decade at Manchester where they were active in the Anti-Apartheid Movement, before leaving for New York.
  • Lord David Ennals served as Chairman of the Anti-Apartheid Movement, 1960-64, a position that was later held by his brother John, 1968-76. Jeremy Thorpe campaigned on behalf of the Anti-Apartheid Movement.

Others involved with the Anti-Apartheid Movement included Canon John Collins, the founder of CND, who was associated with Michael Randle, a CND activist as well as a member of the Committee of 100. Randle and his fellow CND activist Pat Pottle spent many years living at Croesor, where they acquired knowledge of the organised abuse in the region by Dafydd’s gang. Many, many CND activists, including very high profile ones such as Bertrand Russell and E.P. Thompson, knew about the gang. See previous posts eg. ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’ and ‘A Message Of Peace At Christmas’.

Lewis John Collins (23 March 1905 – 31 December 1982) was Chairman of CND, 1958-64. Collins was an Anglican priest who was active in several radical political movements in the UK. Educated at Cranbrook School, Kent and Cambridge University,  Collins served as a chaplain in the RAF during WW II and was radicalised by the experience. In 1946, Collins founded Christian Action to work for reconciliation with Germany. He was appointed as a canon of St Paul’s Cathedral, London in 1948, an office he held for 33 years. Shortly afterwards he became disturbed by the newly developing apartheid system in South Africa.

In 1951, Collins was one of the four founders of the War on Want. In 1956, he committed Christian Action to raising funds for the defence of anti-apartheid activists accused of treason in South Africa and this gave rise to the Defence and Aid Fund for Southern Africa. The fund raised over £75,000.

Collins was one of the founders of CND and was also a member of the Anglican Pacifist Fellowship, working with the Rev Sidney Hinkes on anti-nuclear campaigns.

The Canon Collins Educational & Legal Assistance Trust, formerly known as Canon Collins Trust for Southern Africa (CCETSA) is a charity founded in 1981. It was set up as the Defence Aid Fund for Southern Africa and Collins was its first Chairman. Under apartheid it provided money to help South African and Namibian refugee students gain HE in the UK and in independent African states. It now provides scholarships for students within South Africa and in other African countries.

Collins married Diana Clavering Elliot (1917–2003) in 1939; they had four sons. In 1999, the year before the Waterhouse Report was published, Diana Collins became Dame Diana.

Dame Diana partnered her husband in his CND and anti-apartheid activism. She was born at Stutton Hall, Suffolk and as a student gave up reading English at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford, to marry Collins, then Dean of Oriel College.

In 1946 John and Diana Collins convened a public meeting at Oxford Town Hall, calling for Christians to involve themselves in social and political action. This led directly to the formation of Christian Action, with John Collins as the Chairman. Diana Collins edited Christian Action’s journal.

The Collins’ friends included Sir Stafford Cripps, Bishop Trevor Huddleston, the Lord Chancellor, Gerald Gardiner, J.B. Priestley, Bertrand Russell and Oliver Tambo.

When he was living in England, Trevor Huddleston was accused of behaving indecently with two pre-pubescent boys. He admitted that he had behaved as the boys alleged but that the incident had been ‘misinterpreted’. The police were involved but nothing went very far, what with him being Trevor Huddleston. See previous posts…

 

Diana’s friends named above were all active in anti-capital punishment, anti-nuclear proliferation, anti-apartheid and other progressive causes. They launched the Defence and Aid Fund to support black South Africans. Diana Collins travelled incognito to South Africa when her husband was banned from entering that country. The Collins’ raised large sums of money for the legal defense of their causes by the best barristers, including the defence of Nelson Mandela at the Rivonia trial.

Following her husband’s death in 1982, Collins became a Trustee of the International Defence and Aid Fund for Southern Africa until 1991 and remained on the Council of Christian Action.

Diana Collins died, aged 85 in 2003, and was survived by three sons. One son predeceased her.

Diana’s 2003 obituary in the Torygraph included additional information:

….Diana Collins was, in fact, more intellectually able than her husband, and combined this with a persuasive charm which helped to smooth situations made difficult by his hasty decision-making and somewhat abrasive style. Yet, in spite of her considerable gifts and total commitment to their shared concerns, she was always ready to take a subordinate place on the public stage and remained totally loyal in her support of his leadership….Marriage to a man of Collins’s mercurial temperament could never have been easy; but her deep affection for him never wavered, and to their many friends the quality of their relationship was as impressive as their shared Christian faith.

She was born Diana Clavering Elliot at Stutton Hall, Suffolk, the home of her grandparents, on August 13 1917. Her father was at that time serving with the Suffolk Regiment in France, and, until his demobilisation and settlement at Putney after the war, she was accustomed to a household that supported a butler, a nanny and a cook.

Education at a dame school was followed by less than happy years in a girls’ boarding school, which she was asked to leave. A church boarding school proved to be more to her liking and, having ended as head girl and captain of games, she was sent to a finishing school in Paris. A London season followed, and she was one of the few young women to be presented at Court in the presence of King Edward VIII, whom she recalled as looking very sad as well as very bored.

At Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford, Diana won a lacrosse Blue, but her academic work was hindered by her engagement to Ronald Lunt, who was later ordained and became a distinguished Chief Master of King Edward’s School, Birmingham. When Lunt broke the engagement, she became involved with his friend John Collins, then Dean of Oriel. They were married in October 1939.

In the following year Collins joined the RAF as a chaplain and Diana returned to Stutton Hall, remaining there until 1945 when her husband resumed his duties at Oriel and they were given the use of a small college house. In 1946 they convened a public meeting in Oxford Town Hall, calling for Christians to become more deeply involved in social and political affairs, and this led to the formation of Christian Action, with John Collins as the chairman.

Soon he became a national figure, and Christian Action, with its fast-growing membership, provided the organisational base for their joint work. When the prime minister, Clement Attlee, appointed Collins to a Canonry at St Paul’s Cathedral in 1949, this was to provide him with a London headquarters; and the basement of his new home at 2 Amen Court became the office of Christian Action.

Diana Collins ran the office, drafted many of her husband’s speeches and wrote articles and letters to the press on a wide variety of social concerns – housing, abolition of the death penalty, and, increasingly, nuclear weapons. She felt deeply about the likely horror of future wars and, in 1957, she chaired and spoke at a meeting in Trafalgar Square which led to the formation of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament.

Again, John Collins assumed the public leadership of the new movement, but she served on its women’s committee and was involved in the Aldermaston marches.

Next came the launching of the Defence and Aid Fund, to support black South Africans who had fallen foul of their country’s segregation laws; this later became an important weapon in the fight against apartheid. Diana Collins spoke on this subject at meetings all over Britain, and went incognito to South Africa when her husband was forbidden entry to the country. She also edited the Christian Action journal which at this time had a wide and influential readership.

Looking back on her 33 years at 2 Amen Court, she said, “It was like living on a railway station at permanent rush hour, but they were exciting, exhilarating and rewarding years.” When, however, John Collins was not appointed to the Deanery of St Paul’s in 1967, she became somewhat disenchanted with the Church, and, although she continued to attend Anglican services for the rest of her life, she later developed a great interest in eastern religions.

Following her husband’s death in 1982, Diana Collins became a trustee of the International Defence and Aid Fund for Southern Africa until 1991, and remained on the Council of Christian Action.

Increased leisure enabled her to use her literary gifts more freely and, in addition to Partners in Protest, she wrote an acclaimed book, Time and the Priestleys(1994), an account of another partnership, that of her friends J B Priestley and his wife Jacquetta Hawkes. Diana Collins had given the address at Priestley’s memorial service in Westminster Abbey.

Although life for her after the death of John Collins was never easy – she underwent major surgery, and a much-loved son was killed in a road accident – she remained her sparkling, energetic self and was a delightful friend as well as an outspoken advocate of justice, freedom and peace until the end of her days.

Diana Collins was appointed DBE in 1999.

She died on May 23, and is survived by three sons, one of whom is Sir Andrew Collins, a High Court judge of the Queen’s Bench Division.

Sir Andrew David Collins (born 19 July 1942), styled The Hon. Mr Justice Collins, is a retired barrister and judge. He served as a High Court judge, 1994-2017.

Sir Andrew was educated at Eton (where he was a contemporary of Prince Michael of Kent and Jonathan Aitken) and at King’s College, Cambridge. Collins was called to the Bar at the Middle Temple in 1965. Ronnie Waterhouse had joined Middle Temple just a few years previously. Sir Andrew became a Bencher of Middle Temple in 1992; Ronnie was also a bencher. Sir Andrew was appointed a QC in 1985 and was a Recorder from 1986 until 1994, when he was appointed a High Court judge. Sir Andrew served as President of the Immigration Appeal Tribunal, 1999-2002 and was Lead Judge in the Administrative Court for England and Wales, 2004-07.

In 2006 Collins reversed the GMC verdict to strike off Professor Sir Roy Meadow. The GMC had invited Collins to recuse himself from the case in light of the fact that Collins’s own brother, psychiatrist Dr Mark Collins, had been judged by the GMC for ‘crossing the patient-doctor boundaries’. Collins saw no conflict and not only found in favour of Meadow but ruled to limit the power that the GMC held over expert witnesses. The GMC appealed against his findings. Two of the three judges at appeal found that Meadow had been guilty of professional misconduct but only the senior of the three felt that it had been serious professional misconduct. The three judges reversed Collins’s ruling that the expert medical witnesses should be immune to proceedings by the GMC.

Sir Andrew Collins and his colleagues didn’t seem to have understood a few basics about Sir Roy Meadow. I have covered Sir Roy Meadow in detail in previous posts, so I’ll just mention the most worrying matters re Roy Meadow here. Sir Roy Meadow, a paediatrician, invented a psychiatric illness, Munchausen’s Syndrome by Proxy. The symptoms of the illness that Roy Meadow invented include the harming of another person to cause them to need medical attention. Sir Roy’s invented illness was said to usually affect parents who harmed their children in order to gain attention. A number of mothers were subsequently accused of killing their children and were said to be suffering from Munchausen’s by Proxy.

Sir Roy gave expert evidence at some of the trials; Sir Roy was the expert because he had invented the illness. At some of the trials – for murder, not for shoplifting – Sir Roy made up statistics to ‘prove’ that the women had murdered their children. He didn’t just invent the illness, he then invented some statistics. Anyone with a grounding in basic stats could have told the Court that Sir Roy’s stats were wrong. A good statistician would have demolished him. But nobody asked for a statistician. A Court full of lawyers and journos and many other people watched Sir Roy Meadow tell lies in Court cases and innocent women were jailed because Roy Meadow told lies. When Roy Meadow’s lies and fuckwittery were revealed – years later – a whole string of women had their convictions for murder overturned and were released from prison.

The most famous victim of the miscarriages of justice as a result of Meadow’s evidence was Sally Clark, who had lost two babies to cot death. Sally was convicted of murdering both the babies and a great many lies were told about her in Court, including Roy Meadow’s made-up stats concerning the improbability of two babies in one family dying from cot death. There was one person who definitely knew that Sally Clark was not a double murderer and that was the pathologist who performed the postmortem on one of her babies. He discovered that the baby had died of a respiratory infection. He concealed the evidence, let Sally go to prison for double murder and let her remain in prison for years. He knew that Meadow had lied in Court and he stayed silent. That pathologist never faced any disciplinary action.

After Sally was released from prison she never returned to her old self. She had been violently attacked in prison – well she was a baby murderer wasn’t she, Roy Meadow could tell us all that – and when she was finally freed she remained incredibly depressed and drank heavily. She died a few years later. On one occasion, Sally’s husband was interviewed on TV about the case. Roy Meadow’s colleague, paediatrician David Southall, saw the interview and told his colleagues that if Sally hadn’t killed her babies, he knew that her husband had. The matter was referred to a child protection team. No evidence at all was needed – David Southall watched Mr Clark on TV and knew that He’d Done It. Of course Mr Clark had not done it and he was never charged. David Southall is probably still seething that the word of a Top Doc was ignored. Southall too had a bit of trouble with the GMC, but he remains practising… See previous posts.

When Southall was referred to the GMC and placed under investigation, he was supported by a voluble campaign led by Top Docs, Angels and social workers who stressed that the general public had no idea how wicked and manipulative Child Abusers are and only Top Docs, Angels and social workers Know. Southall was also given much free PR in the Times Higher Educational Supplement. Shortly after I had appeared in there and after Brown and I had also appeared in the media discussing the mental health services.

 

Sir Andrew Collins’s brother the psychiatrist Dr Mark Collins advertises his services online. Dr Collins practices privately these days, solely with outpatients at his Harley Street practice. However, Dr Collins can refer patients needing residential treatment to a variety of his colleagues, both within and outside of the UK.

Dr Collins took up his first post as a Consultant Psychiatrist in 1990, with responsibility for an NHS catchment area in Central Wandsworth, ‘where he pioneered the introduction of a community based service for patients who were at risk of slipping through the net’. So Dr Collins was one of the Top Docs who was working in Wandsworth while St George’s and Springfield Hospital – which is where Dr Collins will have been based – and Wandsworth Borough Council were facilitating the paedophile ring in south London with direct links to Dafydd and co in north Wales.

I have in my possession copies of documents compiled by Dr Collins’s Top Doc colleagues in Dec 1990 and Jan 1991, which state clearly that Dafydd and, they suspected, Tony Francis were sexually exploiting patients. They also recorded that I was suicidal because of constantly being threatened and arrested by Dafydd and the gang. They observed that I was not psychotic and was not going to be offered any care or treatment but would be discharged and referred to the forensic team ‘for containment’. I hadn’t read these documents at the time, so when I received an appointment to see another consultant, having by then been forced out of my job at St George’s, I kept the appointment. He told me to go back to north Wales because Dafydd was my doctor and ‘they know you there’. That man was Professor Nigel Eastman, who has worked extensively with Wimmin’s Champ St Helena Kennedy and even received an acknowledgement in her book ‘Eve Was Framed’. See previous posts…

Documents in my possession also show that although St George’s Top Docs admitted in writing that patients were being abused in north Wales, they were ringing up Lucille Hughes, Tony Francis and Dafydd to take evidence regarding my ‘dangerousness’… They diligently wrote down that I had tried to strangle and stab people and that on one occasion I broke into Dafydd’s consulting room ‘such that he believed that he would be murdered there and then’. It was noted that the only reason why I had not been imprisoned as a result of my many murderous attacks on people was that I was so clever the police had not been able to catch me.

This happened in Dec 1990/Jan 1991. A long time ago now. Those Top Docs are all still practising and since 1991 they have made numerous decisions with regard to who should be sectioned, imprisoned, locked up for many years in a high security hospital, refused treatment or have their children removed from them and adopted. They were running an international  paedophile/trafficking ring and they lied and lied and lied under all circumstances.

It was in 1993 that Dr Mark Collins entered full-time private practice. Until 2016 he was a Staff Consultant at the Roehampton Priory Hospital, where for many years Dr Collins was Associate Medical Director and Lead Consultant of the Addiction Treatment Programme. After a number of years Dr Collins established a working relationship with Cottonwood de Tucson Clinic in America and when they decided to open an outpatient facility in London, they appointed Dr Collins as their London Medical Director.

Some years ago I googled the mad lying Top Docs at St George’s who colluded with Dafydd et al in 1991. Dr Robin Jacobson was working at the Priory Roehampton. Dr Adrienne Key, who wasn’t involved in my own case, but was working on the same wards with the people who were involved with my case, is now The Priory Group’s Director for Eating Disorders. Professor Nigel Eastman is one of the World’s Leading Top Docs and jets around the globe giving evidence in Foreign Courts. Dr Tom Burns, who saw me on another occasion and admitted that he believed that there was an abuse ring in north Wales is now Professor Tom Burns of Oxford University. One of his colleagues at Oxford is Professor Mark Williams, who was one of Dafydd’s colleagues in north Wales while I sat in St George’s/Springfield and told them all what Dafydd et al were doing. Tom of course also knew about the ring in south London which his colleagues were facilitating.
The whole bloody lot of them knew that I knew about Dafydd et al and the criminal wrongdoing at St George’s. Is it surprising that I have now been unlawfully refused all medical treatment, that there have been repeated attempts to frame and imprison me and that I am now in hiding?
Don’t bother to arrest any of them police. They are all about 70 yrs old, their victims died years ago and you knew what they were doing but you let them do it.
People contemplating consulting Dr Mark Collins re drug problems might like to know that the St George’s gangsters were dealing in class A drugs as well. But that is what many people go to drug specialists for…
Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

Sir Andrew’s dad, the Rev John Collins, was succeeded as Chair of CND by Olive Frances Gibbs who died in September 1995. Gibbs entered Oxfordshire politics in 1953 and was Lord Mayor in 1974–75 and again 1981–82. Olive was also the first woman to Chair Oxfordshire County Council. Her husband, Edmund, an accountant and founder of an eponymous Oxfordshire firm, was also a Councillor for some time.

Gibbs Chaired CND, 1964-67. She was made an Honorary Freeman of the City of Oxford and of the City of London. Olive was a Deputy Lieutenant of Oxfordshire. Gibbs Crescent, a new street of social housing, was named after her, as was the Humanities building at Oxford Brookes (then Oxford Polytechnic).

As a result of her longstanding involvement in Oxfordshire politics, Olive Gibbs will have known that Barbara and Dr Vladimir Kahan were concealing organised abuse in Oxfordshire. It is highly likely that Olive also knew something about the booming trade in class A drugs among students in Oxford during the 1980s, which resulted in a great many people telling a great many lies after Olivia Channon died in June 1986. See post ‘Is The Party Over Yet?’

Someone else who knows about such matters is David Cameron’s mum, who served as an Oxford magistrate for years. Of course Dave himself knows as well, having been an Oxford undergrad during some of those years of drug fuelled excess and lying-through-one’s-teeth when one’s friend has died.

Olive Gibbs died in Sept 1995. William Hague and Ronnie Waterhouse, as well as a few others, knew that Ronnie would be holding the Waterhouse Inquiry by then, although Hague didn’t announce that Inquiry for another year. Olive was yet another who could name names who’d pegged out by the time that Ronnie opened his Inquiry.

A blue plaque to Olive Gibbs was unveiled on her childhood home at Christ Church Old Buildings, St Thomas’s, Oxford on 11 April 2015.

Baron Krebs, who has been hiding away in the Lords while I have been writing this blog!

John Richard Krebs, Baron Krebs (born 11 April 1945 in Sheffield) is a zoologist who researches the behavioural ecology of birds. He was the Principal of Jesus College, Oxford, 2007-15. Jesus College has very close links with Wales and many of those who concealed the crimes of Dafydd et al were/are graduates of Jesus College, including the fat corrupt judge Huw Daniel.

Lord Krebs was President of the British Science Association, 2012–13.

Lord John Krebs’s dad is THE Krebs of the Krebs cycle ie. the sequence of the biochemical reactions involving the uptake and release of energy in cells. John Krebs never did anything like discover the Krebs cycle though…

So what did John Krebs discover?

John was educated at the City of Oxford High School and Pembroke College, Oxford, where he graduated in 1966 and then received his DPhil in 1970. John Krebs then held posts at the University of British Columbia and at UCNW.

While at UCNW, John Krebs discovered a paedophile ring!

After discovering a paedophile ring, John returned to Oxford as a Lecturer in Zoology, with a fellowship at Wolfson College, Oxford, then at Pembroke. John Krebs was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1984. The year that I graduated and was given infected blood at the C&A Hospital!

In 1986, my housemate Anne Vernon was killed. Anne had been doing her PhD in the Zoology Dept at UCNW, where John Krebs discovered a paedophile ring.

From 1988 to 2005 John Krebs held a Royal Society Research Professorship in the Department of Zoology, University of Oxford, where he was based at Pembroke College. Brown’s cousin Katie Dent was offered a place at Pembroke College to study a subject that she hadn’t applied to study, because someone at Oxford knew that John Krebs had discovered a paedophile ring at UCNW. Katie did not get on well with Brown’s side of the family, so it is only recently that I have found out why Katie bagged that place at Pembroke College under such peculiar circumstances. Katie seems to have changed her name since her days at Oxford. See previous posts.

Krebs was the Chief Executive of NERC,1994–1999. NERC funded Anne’s PhD!

It was all a bit weird with NERC at UCNW from the mid-80s onward. NERC used to have a lot of money to give to biologists but Thatch couldn’t see why the Gov’t should fund research into creepy crawlies and boring old plants, so NERC received a huge cut in their budget. From 1984 onward, very few lecturers at UCNW managed to get funding out of NERC. About the only person who did was the Bad Tempered Bastard John Farrar. Who had previously had an affair with one of the undergrads, Stel, bagged funding from NERC for a research assistant and had given the job to er Stel. Stel finished her PhD the year that I graduated. Farrar carried on bagging the dosh from NERC when no-one else could get a penny out of them…

John Farrar knew that his colleagues were colluding with a trafficking gang and he knew that one of them was having sex with schoolgirls from Bangor. He also knew that I and my friends were shafted because we refused to drop our complaints about Gwynne the lobotomist et al…

Farrar did very well out of NERC when John Krebs who discovered the paedophile ring was Chief Exec of NERC.

See previous posts for details of the rise and rise of John Farrar and his very nasty ways…

In 1999 John Krebs was knighted for discovering the paedophile ring. Just before the Waterhouse Report was published, which denied that the paedophile ring discovered by John Krebs existed.

From 2000–2005, John Krebs who discovered the paedophile ring was the first Chairman of the British Food Standards Agency. During those years Huw Daniel, graduate of Jesus College, Oxford and many others were involved in a huge conspiracy to fit me up for threatening to kill an NHS manager and imprison me.

On 15 February 2007, it was announced that John Krebs who discovered the paedophile ring was to become a cross bench life peer. In 2007 Lord Krebs accepted the role of Principal of Jesus College, Oxford, a post that he held until 2015.

Krebs’s career has been both productive and influential. His publications include more than 130 refereed papers, 5 books, and 130 book chapters, reviews, or popular pieces. They have introduced new methods to the science of ornithology, including the use of optimality models to predict foraging behaviour and, more recently, techniques from neurobiology and experimental psychology to assess the mental capacities of birds and to relate these to particular regions of the brain.

Birds of the World:

Parus is a genus of Old World birds in the tit family. It was formerly a large genus containing most of the 50 odd species in the family Paridae. The genus was split into several resurrected genera following the publication of a detailed molecular phylogenetic analysis in 2013. The genus name, Parus, is the Latin for “tit”.

The great tit (Parus major) is found right across Europe:

The biggest tit of all: John Krebs who discovered a paedophile ring.

  • British policymaker: Israeli, Palestinian cooperation on ...
  • The Krebs Report
  • John Krebs | Royal Society
  • John Krebs, Baron Krebs - Wikipedia

John Krebs discovered the paedophile ring at the time that the wider world discovered that Jeremy Thorpe was a member of the Westminster Paedophile Ring, which was at the elite end of the ring that John Krebs discovered.

I can remember the folk in the Zoology Dept at UCNW with whom John Krebs was working when he discovered the paedophile ring. There was Malcolm Cherrett, Tony Pitcher, Gavin Gatehouse, Dr Clifford-Jones, Mrs Morgan, Mr Hobart, Dr Probert, Dr Herbert, Simon Webster and many more…

As with so many scientific discoveries, John Krebs was not the first to discover the paedophile ring. John Krebs was just the man who for some reason wasn’t murdered or subjected to a prolonged attack by gangsters after discovering the paedophile ring. So how did you avoid that grisly fate then Lord Krebs? Because your colleague Dr Bill Hemming discovered the paedophile ring before you did and he was destroyed. Mr Hobart discovered the paedophile ring as well, which is why his daughter was later arrested and sectioned by the Hergest Unit and diagnosed with ‘paranoid schizophrenia’, when she was actually suffering from the consequences of a rare autoimmune disease, which had been diagnosed and was known to cause psychosis-like symptoms. It was text book stuff, but the one thing that the Top Doctors of north Wales cannot do is read a bloody text book.

Was John Krebs’ roaring success after he discovered the paedophile ring in any way perhaps related to his dad being the Krebs who discovered the Krebs cycle, the famous German biochemist who made history and God could there have been trouble if John Krebs was not rewarded for discovering the paedophile ring…

I will investigate further…

 

Having led the Randomised Badger Culling Trials, Krebs became one of the UK’s leading experts on bovine TB. The findings of the RBCT led him to oppose further badger culling in 2012 and he contributed to a paper on the subject written by centre-right think tank The Bow Group.

Krebs was a member of the Nuffield Council on Bioethics, 2006–2007 and Chaired the Working Party on Public Health2006–07. He took up the Chairmanship of the National Network of Science Learning Centres in 2007. Krebs was a member of the independent, statutory body the Committee on Climate Change and Chairman of its Adaptation Sub-Committee, from 2009 to 2017.

For his scientific research and leadership John Krebs has been awarded honorary doctorates by 16 universities.

It’s amazing what can happen to an ornithologist when they discover a paedophile ring.

 

BMA Pompousing Rituals 

Bernard Levin And Jonathan Miller Talk Bollocks

My post ‘A Message Of Peace At Christmas’ explained that in 1960, Sir Reginald Manningham-Buller, the then Attorney General, made the decision to mount a prosecution against Penguin Books using the new Obscene Publications Act after Penguin republished ‘Lady Chatterley’s Lover’ in 1960. Bernard Levin criticised the decision in ‘The Spectator’ which caused Manningham-Buller to suggested prosecuting “the proprietors of The Spectator, the editor and Mr Bernard Levin” once the Chatterley trial itself was over. The Solicitor General Sir Jocelyn Simon convinced Manningham-Buller to reconsider. Sir Jocelyn knew that pissing Bernard Levin off would not be a good idea, as we shall see.

Bernard Levin has rather faded from public consciousness now, but for a long while people put up with Bernard Levin’s pronouncements on many subjects and even treated them seriously. Then Levin became an object of ridicule and as such he was mentioned in a scene in ITV’s ‘Spitting Image’ in the 1980s. Levin was caricatured in high-flown discussion with Top Tosser Jonathan Miller in a sketch entitled “Bernard Levin and Jonathan Miller Talk Bollocks”. Levin had considered himself a Labour Party supporter but by the 1980s his political views were moving to the right and he had come to admire Thatch.

Sir Jocelyn Simon persuaded Reggie not to prosecute Levin because Levin Knew about matters that a lot of people were working very hard to keep quiet. Furthermore Sir Jocelyn Knew a great deal as well, indeed Sir Jocelyn Knew as much or even more than Bernard Levin and Reggie.

Jocelyn Edward Salis Simon, Baron Simon of Glaisdale (15 January 1911 – 7 May 2006) was a Law Lord having been, by turns, a barrister, an officer in the British Army, a barrister again, a Tory politician, a Gov’t minister and a judge. As noted by ‘The Independent’ in their obituary for him, “Jack Simon was the last of a breed of judges who first pursued a successful career in politics before promotion to the Bench.”

Jocelyn Simon’s appointment marked the last appointment of a former member of the Commons as a Law Lord, although Reggie Manningham-Buller, who was appointed before Simon but retired after him, was the last serving Law Lord to have previously served in the Commons. 

There was a good reason why Jack was given a job as a judge after his successful career in politics…

Jack Simon spent 11 years in the Commons as the Tory MP for Middlesborough West, 1951-61. Middlesborough was on the patch of the paedophile ring in the north of England which, by the 1970s, had expanded and established a direct link to the north Wales gang, supplying children and staff to Dafydd et al. It received a considerable boost from the 1950s onward by Jimmy Savile’s activities in Yorkshire, ‘managing dance halls’ and ‘inventing the disco’.  The considerable problems caused by Savile and his associates in the region’s NHS and the social services finally erupted in the form of the Cleveland Child Abuse Scandal of 1987-88, the extent of which Lord Butler-Sloss was called upon to conceal. See post ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas And The Guilty Were Named’.

Jocelyn Simon was noted for being ‘attentive to constituency matters’, ‘despite continuing his legal practice’. So being a barrister who took an interest in what was happening to his constituents, Simon will have known about the serious organised crime under his nose which was being fanned by Savile.

Jocelyn Simon entered the Commons when Winston Churchill was re-elected but Macmillan was PM by the time that Simon held Ministerial office. Simon was PPS to the Attorney General, Sir Lionel Heald, for three years and in 1957 was appointed as a junior Minister in the Home Office, under Home Secretary Rab Butler. Simon took charge of the bill that became the Homicide Act 1957, ‘earning the respect’ of Rab.

Macmillan’s One Nation approach to the economy was to seek high or full employment. This contrasted with the Treasury ministers who argued that support of sterling required spending cuts and, probably, a rise in unemployment. Their advice was rejected and in January 1958, the Ministerial team at the Treasury resigned en masse. Thus Derick Heathcoat-Amory became the Chancellor of the Exchequer, replacing Peter Thorneycroft and Jack Simon was promoted to Financial Secretary, replacing Enoch Powell. Simon held this second office for only one year, being appointed Solicitor-General in 1959 to replace Sir Harry Hylton-Foster who had been elected as Speaker. Meanwhile, Reggie Manningham-Buller was Attorney General.

Although Simon seemed destined for a Cabinet seat, in 1962, after three years as Solicitor-General, to widespread surprise, he resigned from his office as well as from Parliament to become a High Court judge and President of the Probate, Divorce and Admiralty Division, replacing Lord Merriman. Simon remained in the post until 1971, then became a Law Lord until he retired in 1977.

Jocelyn Simon left politics just before the Profumo Affair became public, but after it was clear that the scandal would break very soon. See previous posts. Simon remained as a High Court judge after Dafydd and John Allen had begun their business of trafficking children via children’s homes in north Wales in the late 1960s. He was a Law Lord while the business rapidly expanded and took advantage of the Children Act 1975 which was the result of a well-planned and co-ordinated campaign led by Leo Abse and others who were instrumental in facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See previous posts eg. ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’. Simon retired the year following Carlo’s appointment as Chancellor of UCNW and George Thomas’s appointment as Speaker of the House. Both of these moves were valuable in keeping the show on the road in the aftermath of Norman Scott’s dog being killed by Andrew Newton and Newton attempting to shoot Norman, after allegedly being hired to kill him. The shooting occurred in Oct 1975 and by 1976 it was obvious that at least some of the Thorpe-Scott story would become public very soon. See previous posts.

Jocelyn Simon’s ‘legal practice at the family bar had prepared him for this position [High Court judge] perfectly’. The best preparation was however Simon’s knowledge of Naughtiness in High Places and the lengths to which a great many other people in High Places had gone to conceal it all.

Just after becoming a High Court judge, Jocelyn Simon had an operation to remove a benign tumour, which caused him to lose the use of his right eye; he habitually wore a black eye-patch thereafter, ‘which gave him somewhat of a piratical air’.

Family Lore: Lord Simon of Glaisdale

 

When Anthony Clare interviewed Savile on ‘In The Psychiatrist’s Chair’, among much inane idiocy from Savile about women giving him ‘brain damage’, Savile boasted to Clare that he was a ‘pirate’. Clare knew about Savile’s sex offending but politely never mentioned it at any point.

Sad Satan - Nejzvláštnější hororová hra - Paraweb

Anthony Clare knew what was happening to the boys in here as well:

THE TRIALS OF GORDON ANGLESEA | REBECCA

 

Anthony Clare was raised in Ireland as a Roman Catholic and was fully aware of the extent to which the Roman Catholic church was perpetrating organised abuse. Savile was famously a lifelong Catholic who received a Papal knighthood from John Pope II in 1990.

Following initial training in psychiatry at St Patrick’s, Dublin, Anthony Clare moved to the Institute of Psychiatry at the Maudsley,  where he studied under Professor Michael Shepherd. Dafydd, Tony Francis and Professor Bob Woods who ran the gang in north Wales ‘trained’ at the Institute of Psychiatry/the Maudsley and the institution protected all of them. Michael Shepherd was an incredibly powerful man in psychiatry as a result of him carefully cultivating junior doctors who served as acolytes and then helping their careers in any way that he could. Shepherd didn’t just give British Top Doctors a hand, he mentored overseas doctors too and ensured that those loyal to him found senior positions in psychiatry across the world. See previous posts. As long ago as the 1950s, the Top Docs at the Maudsley were facilitating trafficking, paedophilia and the dealing and distribution of class A drugs, so Prof Shepherd’s helpers occupying powerful roles on many continents certainly oiled the wheels when those linked to the Maudsley and their mates evolved into an international crime syndicate in the 1970s and 80s.

 

Anthony Clare held the positions of Professor and Head of Dept of Psychological Medicine at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, London, 1983-88, before Dafydd’s mate Professor Linford Rees held that position. Bart’s had already been colluding with organised abuse as a result of Lady Juliet Bingley’s presence as an almoner (social worker) there after she qualified in the mid-1950s. Lady Juliet’s own influence at Bart’s was based on the position of her father Reginald Vick, a surgeon at Bart’s for decades. Bart’s protected Graham Chapman from the excesses of his sexual abuse of adolescent boys, although Chapman had given up medicine after qualifying at Bart’s and working there as a house officer for only a short while. After Bart’s, Clare was Professor of Clinical Psychiatry at Trinity College, Dublin and Medical Director of St Patrick’s Hospital, Dublin. Clare was due to retire from his post as Consultant General Adult Psychiatrist at St Edmundsbury Hospital in Lucan, County Dublin, when he died suddenly from a heart attack in Paris at the age of 64 in 2007. Just as the demands for the re-investigation of the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal began to grow and Brown and I began publishing about the mental health services.

By the time of his death, Clare had been out of the public eye for years because in the late 1980s he returned to Dublin and soon after gave up all of his media work. Clare’s rapid return to Ireland coincided with me beginning a career in medical research, refusing to withdraw my complaint about Dafydd et al and writing repeatedly until the complaints process began, although that turned out to be a farce. Clare never gave a reason for his refusal to undertake further media work but by the early 1990s, when investigations were beginning into a possible VIP paedophile ring in north Wales and Chester, he was reluctant to even review books. See previous posts.

In the 1980s and 1990s Clare was the best-known psychiatrist in Britain. His first media appearances were on the Radio 4 programme Stop the Week. ‘Stop the Week’ was Chaired by Robert Robinson who was notorious for presenting the dreadful BBC TV programme ‘Ask The Family’, which provided a rich source of entertainment for teenagers and satirists. In my post ‘I Predict A Riot’ I mentioned that I found an old clip of an ‘Ask The Family’ episode, in which the Grand Final featured the Griffiths family from Llandudno; the father David was ‘an Office Manager’ – so was most likely employed in local gov’t – and the mother Arlene was a teacher. Not only was north Wales a very unlikely source of suitable contestants for ‘Ask The Family’ – they were usually grammar school teachers from the home counties – but some of the most serious offenders with regard to collaborating with Dafydd and the gang in north Wales were those who worked in local gov’t and teaching.

Llandudno was a hot spot for such folk, being one of the towns in north Wales which contained a lot of the professional people who were colluding with and concealing what was going on, rather than worrying about their own kids being targeted. My post ‘How Much Greater Is A Man Than A Sheep?’ describes how the constituency in which Llandudno is located always fielded paedophiles’ friends as candidates because no-one else would stand a chance of being elected. The seat was held by the vile Tory Lord Wyn Roberts, 1970-97, who was fully on board with Dafydd et al.

Before going into politics, Wyn Roberts worked in TV as a journo and a broadcaster and then moved into executive roles in TV; he also worked for the security services during WW II. Ann Clwyd’s husband Owen Roberts was a TV executive who worked for HTV Wales, BBC Wales and S4C. Clwyd and Roberts were both journos who grew up in north Wales, Clwyd near Denbigh and Roberts on Anglesey; Ann Clwyd stood as the Labour candidate for Denbigh in 1970. Then there were the many other paedophiles’ friends who worked for the BBC, including Mr BBC Huw Wheldon, who went to Friars School in Bangor and retained lifelong links to north Wales and UCNW. See previous posts. For yet more details of Psychiatrist Friendly TV stars who suddenly achieved fame and fortune at times when Dafydd and the gang were being challenged, including Vanessa Feltz and Trisha Goddard, see post ‘Dates For Your Diary’.

Robert Robinson began presenting ‘Stop the Week’ after he had spent three years presenting the ‘Today’ programme. Stop the Week ran from 1974-92,  the last show being broadcast on 25 July 1992. Each week a panel of four or five, drawn from a pool of ‘regulars’, would discuss a number of topics. Among the regulars, as well as Anthony Clare, were Ann Leslie, Laurie Taylor and Dr Michael O’Donnell. Ann Leslie was the original Glenda who was on board Cap’n Bob’s ship for years and knew about the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See previous posts.

Laurie Taylor is the media sociologist who has featured often on this blog. Taylor grew up in Liverpool and attended the Roman Catholic school St Mary’s College in Crosby. Crosby is the home town of Cherie and is full of professional people who colluded with Dafydd’s gang’s Liverpool branch, which was why the constituency of Crosby was held by Shirl, 1981-83. See post ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’ Laurie was a mature student at Eric Hobsbawm’s domain Birkbeck, University of London (see post ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’) and then dear old Leicester University, Greville Janner’s manor. Laurie was a member of the Trotskyite International Socialists, many of whom were working for the security services.

Laurie has been a lifelong leftie and his first wife was Anna Coote, a journo who was Deputy Editor of ‘New Statesman’ and who held office with the NCCL when that organisation was associated with PIE and was sympathetic to paedophiles’ rights. Laurie became famous when, along with Stan Cohen, they taught sociology to prisoners from maximum security jails. The bank robber John McVicar was one of their students who was subsequently given a column in the ‘New Statesman’. Taylor and Stan Cohen also published on the conditions under which maximum security prisoners were kept. I don’t have a problem with prisoners receiving an education and much of what Taylor and Cohen published was eminently sensible; however Laurie found out about a great deal which he did not ever publish.

Laurie’s pal the criminologist Prof Dick Hobbs specialises in serious organised crime and as a result of that conducted ethnographic research with gangland figures, corrupt police officers etc. Like Laurie, Dick has details of much serious crime that he has never released. Dick Hobbs was mates with the criminologist the late Jane Morgan. Jane grew up in Wrexham and did her PhD at Leicester University, when the whole institution was colluding with the Leicestershire paedophile ring. David and Richard Attenborough’s father Frederick was Principal of Leicester University and the Attenborough family connection was and still is fully exploited by the abuse ring (see previous posts eg. ‘Gwlad y Menig Gwynion’ and ‘Life In Cold Blood’). Jane was a specialist in child victims of crime, worked in the Criminological Research Centre at Oxford University, 1985-89, served as a magistrate and worked with victim support. Believe me, Jane knew about Dafydd et al but never mentioned them. See previous posts.

Jane married Lord K.O. Morgan, an historian with close links to people on the right of the Labour Party, who was Vice-Chancellor of Aberystwyth University, 1989-95, (see post ‘A Bit More Paleontology’). Lord Ken went to University College School, Hampstead, which also educated Harold Wilson’s two sons while Trumpers’ husband Alan Barker was the Headmaster there. See previous posts. Lord Ken bagged his peerage in June 2000, five months after the publication of the Waterhouse Report.

Laurie’s son Matthew Taylor was appointed Miranda’s Head of Policy Unit in 2005, as I finished my PhD and the gwerin and paedophiles’ friends, assisted by people in No 10, unleashed their campaign to Get Merfyn Jones, the VC of Bangor University. Matthew is Chief Exec of the RSA and was employed as an adviser by Theresa May’s Gov’t after his loyal service to Miranda. Taylor is a regular on Radio 4’s ‘Moral Maze’ which is Chaired by Michael Buerk, who knows about Dafydd and the gang and stars Claire Fox, who comes from Flintshire, went to the Richard Gwyn Roman Catholic High School in Flint, studied at Warwick University and qualified as a teacher at Thames Poly in 1992. Claire worked as a psychiatric social worker, 1981-87. Claire knows all about Dafydd and the gang but although Claire Says The Unthinkable, she’s never mentioned them. Not even when she was a member of the Revolutionary Communist Party and publishing ‘Living Marxism’. I used to read it Claire and I always wondered where the articles were about the abuses of psychiatry which was the best example of state oppression that there was in the 1990s. Claire is now involved with the neocon website Spiked Online which has published exposes of social work and ‘therapy’ doing the dirty work of neoliberalism, but still hasn’t discussed the real horrors. Spiked Online asked Brown if we’d like to write for them after they read our work on the HE system evolving into a branch of the social care system but we said no when it became clear that we would be expected to tone ourselves down and adhere to the Spiked neocon line on all matters. Claire Fox is the Director and founder of the Institute of Ideas. I’m fairly sure that Claire is one of the people whom MI5 planted in the Revolutionary Communist Party and is still working for them re the neocon movement. Claire, you could have exposed Dafydd but you didn’t, so it was all a bit pointless wasn’t it.

Brown and I were only discussing yesterday that it isn’t that difficult to look after people if you have a bit of dosh and few hands on deck. What the fuck is wrong with you all??

When HUNDREDS of complaints are made about a sex abuse gang just LISTEN and then act on them…

Is it surprising that there’s still green paint on the Renault???

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

When I was doing my PhD, I received an e mail from a researcher who was working for Laurie’s Radio 4 programme ‘Thinking Allowed’, who had read something that I’d published criticising ‘service user led research’. He asked me if I’d like to appear on Laurie’s programme and said that all I’d have to do is pop over to the BBC studio in Bangor. I e mailed back and said yes but I soon received an e mail saying that they were sorry but Laurie had decided that he wasn’t going to run that item.

Here’s Laurie, while not exposing a trafficking ring who murdered witnesses:

‘The visitors have been’ Laurie:

  • The Laurie Taylor interviews - OpenLearn - Open University

 

After I was blown out by Laurie, imagine my surprise when some two years ago I heard two of my former colleagues from Bangor University starring on ‘Thinking Allowed’. One was someone from Bangor Business School who had co-authored a publication with someone else known to me which had relied on fabricated data. The researcher who made up the data given all the good PR by Laurie, as a teenager, had spent her weekends at Dafydd’s house and liked Dafydd on the grounds that he ‘was a good laugh’. Just a few weeks after Laurie featured her work, this person’s ‘research’ was also featured on the ‘Today’ programme.

 

‘Stop the Week’ favourite Michael O’Donnell is a tosser of the highest order even by the standards of a media Top Doc. The son of a Top Doc from Yorkshire, O’Donnell is an alumni of Stoneyhurst College of the sexually assaulting priests. O’Donnell then went to Cambridge and Tommy’s. He was a member of Footlights and is a slightly older member of the group of smart-arsed young Docs which included Graeme Garden, Graham Chapman, Jonathan Miller etc. O’Donnell worked as a GP between 1952 and 1964, then retired from medicine completely becoming a full-time writer.

Although O’Donnell gave up medicine and replaced it by farting around in the media, for some unknown reason O’Donnell remained very influential within a medical establishment that he claimed to loathe and be desperate to drag kicking and screaming into the present. The medical establishment is utterly ruthless, the fact that they allowed O’Donnell to remain sitting on the GMC, leading BMA campaigns etc means that he was/is serving a purpose very useful to them. O’Donnell is not the rebel from within and thorn in their side that he boasts of being because he is still there. Neither has he improved matters.

O’Donnell made his name as a defender of the oppressed in the early 1970s when he led a junior Docs campaign in the wake of the GMC pissing the junior Docs off over a trivial but symbolic matter. The junior Docs threatened to strike which certainly made Sir Keith Joseph, the then Secretary of State for the DHSS, sit up and take notice. Sir Alec Merrison, a nuclear physicist who was called upon by Gov’ts of the time to deal with the Docs when they threw hissy fits and was good at pretending that Change for the benefit of all had happened when the Wind Of No Change had in fact prevailed, Chaired the Inquiry which resulted from O’Donnell’s campaign. O’Donnell was constructed as a junior Docs champ, although their working conditions remained unacceptable and their careers would still end if they stepped out of line in a minor way. See previous posts for more info about O’Donnell.

O’Donnell was a voluble supporter of Dr Ann Dally, class A drug dealer to the stars and Royalty, who spent her youth performing illegal abortions and got into trouble when it was discovered that ‘educational’ material published by Ann was actually porn. During the 1980s, Dally, the Dafydd of Belgravia, was suspended by the GMC and there were a lot of people who were desperate to see her struck off including the police, but O’Donnell and the crooked Home Office Drugs Branch civil servant Bing Spear led a campaign in support of her which involved media appearances and the construction of Dally as a Caring Lady Doctor. Dally soon reappeared on the Medical Register. The Chairman of the GMC at the time was Lord John Walton who was protecting Dafydd and other suppliers of the Westminster Paedophile Ring; O’Donnell was sitting on the GMC along with Walton and knew all about those very serious complaints re Dafydd which were flooding in and ignored. No-one was going to strike Ann Dally off with that happening, particularly when she let it be known that one of the patients of she and her husband Peter Dally was Royal and called Margaret. See previous posts eg. ‘Little Things Hitting Each Other’. Working at the BBC, O’Donnell knew the names of many others customers of the Drs Dally and of course he knew about Jimmy Savile. O’Donnell would have known about Savile before O’Donnell ever got near the BBC, because O’Donnell grew up in Yorkshire and his dad was a Top Doc there. The mother and grandmother of Dr Sadie Francis who worked with Dafydd and the gang were both Top Docs who came from Yorkshire; three generations of Lady Doctors who colluded with organised abuse!

 

‘In The Psychiatrist’s Chair’ was broadcast on Radio 4 from 1982. Clare came up with the idea for a show informing the public All About Psychiatry as Mary Wynch began her legal action against Dafydd and the gang. Sadie and Tony Francis were among the Nice Young Doctors who relocated to north Wales in 1983 or thereabouts in order to con people that after Mary Wynch Things Had Changed and It Couldn’t Happen Again.

After Anthony Clare stepped down as the presenter of ‘In The Psychiatrist’s Chair’, Raj Persaud, one of Clare’s Top Doc colleagues from the Maudsley, took over. Persaud came to grief in 2008 when it was demonstrated that he had plagiarised other academics’ work; he was suspended from the Medical Register by the GMC and he left his consultants job at the Maudsley. Poor old Radio 4 was covered in shame and Persaud disappeared from the airwaves for a while. There was one particularly interesting angle regarding Persaud landing in hot water. Persaud had been plagiarising other people’s work for years yet complaints about him had gone nowhere. However, the man who’s complaint about Raj was listened to by the GMC was Professor Richard Bentall. See previous posts. I was very glad that Richard Bentall grasped Persaud by the knackers, someone should have done it a long time ago.

However, readers might recognise Bentall’s name from previous blog posts. Richard Bentall is a fully paid up member of Dafydd’s gang. Bentall did much of his training at UNCW in Dafydd’s gang when that training involved placements and work with the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. Bentall knew all about the paedophile gang. Bentall married the daughter of Eifion Jones, the Dean of Science at UCNW when the institution was used as a vehicle for the gang. Eifion’s daughter completed a degree in Plant Biology at UCNW, when the staff of the Dept of Plant Biology were colluding with the gang and two members of staff were married to members of the gang. Then she trained and worked as an Angel in north Wales. Richard Bentall has held Chairs at Bangor, Liverpool and Manchester Universities. He knows not only about the paedophile gang and the associated serious crime, but he knows about er the plagiarism and research fraud with which Bentall’s senior colleague for so many years, Prof Fergus Lowe, was involved. Both Richard and his Angel of a wife – now ex-wife – knew about patient harm and corruption in the NHS in north Wales.

It gets better. Richard’s dad was Professor Hugh Bentall, the Prof of Surgery at Hammersmith Hospital. Hugh Bentall was involved with research fraud, as were his colleagues. See post ‘Interesting Facts’. He ensured that his secretary, who was also his mistress, was given a place to do a degree, then a PhD, then a job as an anatomy lecturer. Bentall’s family owned Bentall’s, an upmarket department store in Kingston-upon-Thames and the Bentalls virtually run that town. Brown’s auntie worked at Bentall’s and the family lived in Kingston-upon-Thames. Brown and his immediate family didn’t get on very well with that branch of the clan and after I began this blog, I was told that they were yet more people who did very nicely out of keeping quiet about north Wales. See eg. post ‘Conference At Cold Comfort Farm’.

Hugh Bentall was given his Chair at Hammersmith in the wake of the suspicious death of his colleague and after Bentall had made a huge financial donation to Hammersmith Hospital. See post ‘Interesting Facts’. Hammersmith Hospital became part of Imperial College, which had a number of senior staff who were not only colluding with the research fraud and criminality in London University, including at Hammersmith and St George’s Hospital Medical School, but also had strong connections to Wales. One was Lord Brian Flowers from Swansea (see previous posts, including ‘A Bit More Paleontology’) and another was Professor Wynn Humphrey Davies, from north Wales (see post ‘I Told You I Was Trouble’).

 

Richard Bentall, his ex-wife, Fergus Lowe and their wider network, including Professor Catherine Robinson, John Bailey and Dr Richard Tranter, were all part of the attempt to remove Merfyn Jones from public life, particularly after Merfyn became Chairman of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board and challenged the abuse and criminality in the NHS in north Wales. See posts ‘Lest We Forget’ and ‘The Point Is To Change It’. Fungus built his entire career by overthrowing Dafydd’s influence in the Dept of Psychology at UCNW in the late 1980s and then blackmailing everyone who had colluded with Dafydd. See post ‘Feet In Chains’. Catherine Robinson spent her career sheltering under Fungus and keeping quiet about Dafydd and the abuses at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. Catherine’s ex-husband John Bailey worked at Ashworth Hospital which was run by Dafydd’s mates and the regime there sexually and physically assaulting the imprisoned victims of the gang who were in Ashworth after having been fitted up. One patient at Ashworth was beaten to death by the Angels. During the 1990s, the problems at Ashworth were so bad that there were two Public Inquiries into the ‘hospital’, but as both were led by mates of Dafydd’s, the criticisms, although damning, were not quite as damning as they should have been. What was happening at Ashworth was so dreadful that I doubt that many lay people would have believed it anyway. See previous posts. Jimmy Savile popped into Ashworth whenever he felt like it.

Catherine’s colleague Professor Rob Poole is a Top Doc from north Wales who knows all about Dafydd and the gang, as does her other colleague Dr Richard Tranter, who decided that he was going to emigrate to New Zealand a few years ago as it looked as though the net might be closing in on the gang, what with the launch of Operational Pallial and demands for a review of the Waterhouse Inquiry. Before he left for the other side of the world, Richard did all that he could to persuade me to give up work, then demanded to know ‘who you are talking to in the university’ because ‘we know that you’re telling someone what happened to you’ and then prescribed a combination of drugs that I didn’t want, didn’t need and had I taken them could have killed me because they were neurotoxic. Richard is a psychopharmacologist and even if he wasn’t he could hardly have missed the warnings in even the non-specialist guides to NEVER prescribe the two drugs together. See previous posts.

Professor Wynn Humphrey Davies was part of the Get Merfyn contingent when Merfyn was VC of Bangor University and even dear old Lord Flowers was involved.

Paedophiles’ friends all! And now it’s blown up in your faces…

 

Anthony Clare was also for many years the voice of the BBC science programme QED. QED was a series of documentaries aimed at a lay audience which ran from 1982 to 1999. Some of the documentaries were:

  • A Guide to Armageddon (1982) – the effects of a one megaton nuclear bomb being exploded over London.
  • The Laurie Taylor interviews - OpenLearn - Open University

 

 

  • Simon’s War (1983) – the life of Simon Weston. Simon Weston was the only Welshman who supported the Tories and he received media PR at highly convenient times for the Tory Party and indeed the paedophiles’ friends. Simon the Veteran was wheeled out on que every time that the gang, run by Dafydd who specialised in Helping Veterans, were under threat. I haven’t had time to cover Simon the Falklands Hero yet on the blog, but he hasn’t escaped my notice… Simon is a double whammy of The Doctors They Were Wonderful and Mrs Thatcher She Saved Britain.
  • Celebrity arrests could soar after police discover Jimmy ...
  • Round Britain Whizz (1986) – a sped-up flight around the coastline of Britain.
  • Snorting Morphine | Signs, Symptoms, Effects & Treatment
  • Michael O’Donnell:

Dr Ann Dally’s prescription pad:
  • Princess Margaret and Roddy On Mustique. Let’s hope that Dr Dally gave them enough supplies to last the holiday.

  • The Esoteric Curiosa: The "King" Of Mustique's Last Call ...
  • John’s Not Mad (1989) – follows a 15-year-old boy with severe Tourette syndrome. This was one in a whole glut of TV and radio programmes that appeared when questions began to be asked of Dafydd and the gang that claimed to be Fighting Stigma. ‘John’s Not Mad’ was indeed a sympathetic portrait of a boy who had experienced a bad time, but as with all of those programmes, it actually made the position of people diagnosed with serious mental illness worse. Indeed John wasn’t mad, he had Tourette’s; the Others are Mad! It’s not as if John had Paranoid Schizophrenia so we must be understanding. The enlightening broadcasts occurred in parallel with media story after media story about Paranoid Schizophrenics who, even if they hadn’t murdered someone in cold blood, were going to at any minute.

Every patient who complained about Dafydd and the gang was given a diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia, until Dafydd and the gang wanted to have them incarcerated in prison rather than a hospital, in which case the diagnosis then magically became one of personality disorder. Scores of patients in north Wales underwent this Journey and the only similarity between their symptoms was that they had made serious complaints about sexually inappropriate or abusive conduct and refused to withdraw their allegations.

  • The Burning Question (1998) – on spontaneous combustion. The prime example in north Wales being that of Lord Maelor, who served as the Labour MP for Merioneth, the constituency which embraced Sir Clough, Bertand Russell et al, 1951-66 and who’s brother James Jones was the Labour MP for Wrexham, 1955-70. Lord Maelor spontaneously combusted at his home near Wrexham in Nov 1984. See post ‘Slaves, Perfect Slaves’.

 

Anthony Clare also hosted many episodes of the memorable Channel 4 series ‘After Dark’, which ran between 1987 and 1997. The appearance of ‘After Dark’ and the hype around the profound nature of the programmes in the series could be mapped against concerns being raised about Dafydd et al and investigations and scandals in other parts of the UK that were also the site of gangs linked to Dafydd et al. ‘After Dark’ featured pretentious people being rude to each other while getting increasingly drunk throughout the duration of each three hour episode. Like episodes of ‘Kilroy’ and ‘The Time The Place’, ‘After Dark’ constantly featured people who were concealing the Westminster Paedophile Ring and the criminality of Dafydd et al. It happened so frequently that it couldn’t have been a coincidence.

The second programme of the first series of ‘After Dark’ – transmitted on 8 May 1987 – centred on press ethics and featured, among others, Tony Blackburn, Peter Tatchell, Victoria Gillick, a key figure in the Profumo Scandal and a ‘Private Eye’ journo. Blackburn knew what Savile was doing as did all of his Radio One colleagues. Peter Tatchell knew about Dafydd’s gang and although he never went public on Dafydd and the trafficking ring, Tatchell challenged the appalling corruption of Dafydd’s business partners, the Councillors and MPs in Bermondsey and Southwark. A week after the After Dark broadcast the following correction in relation to the Labour MP Simon Hughes was broadcast: “Mr Hughes has asked us to say that he is not a homosexual, has never been a homosexual and has no intention of becoming a homosexual in the future.”

When Peter Tatchell stood as the Labour candidate in the 1983 Bermondsey by-election, Dafydd’s partners in crime subjected him to an appalling homophobic hate campaign, in which Simon Hughes’s campaign team joined. Tatchell was violently assaulted and received death threats. Years later Simon Hughes admitted that he had been in gay relationships since a he was a young man. Hughes went to school in Brecon, is a barrister and a member of Inner Temple. As is Lord Butler-Sloss. Simon Hughes was one of the signatories to the Early Day Motion tabled by Elfyn Llwyd that opposed plans to close Garth Angharad, a ‘hospital for mentally abnormal criminals’, which in reality was an isolated building in Snowdonia which served as yet another one of the prisons for victims of Dafydd’s gang. Garth Angharad was owned by Paul Hett, a solicitor who was later struck off for embezzling clients’ money. Hett also owned and was the ‘headmaster’ of a number of ‘residential schools’ in which children were assaulted. Even the Waterhouse Report was rude about Paul Hett. See previous posts. For the low down on Dafydd’s criminal pals in Bermondsey who treated Tatchell so badly and about who’s crimes Simon Hughes has kept schtum, see post ‘The Battle For The Labour Party’s Soul’.

Victoria Gillick made a name for herself as a Family Campaigner in the mid 1980s when she took a test case to Court to prevent, in principle, any Top Doc prescribing the contraceptive pill for her underage daughter. The entire media debate around Victoria Gillick concerned her Catholicism and whether she was a caring mother or a mad old bat controlling her oppressed teenaged children. The elephant in the room wasn’t mentioned: that whatever Victoria Gillick was or wasn’t, Top Docs were prescribing the contraceptive pill for numerous girls of 13 and 14 who were ‘in care’ and being forced into sex work, with the knowledge of those Docs. By the time that Mrs Gillick caused a sensation, I had found out quite a bit about this and had I been raising teenagers I wouldn’t have let them near those Docs. Mrs Gillick’s Court victory was later overturned and the Top Docs of the nation heaved a sigh of relief as once more it was business as usual. It wasn’t their children being forced into sex work and pumped full of hormones a la a factory farmed chicken to prevent difficult questions in the event of a pregnancy. As with so many other matters Top Docs, that was for Other People. See previous posts.

Dear old Dafydd even managed to have a finger in the pie which was the Profumo Affair. In the years before that scandal broke, there was an embryonic trade in young women between Wales and England for sexual services (see eg. posts ‘On The Occasion Of The 70th Birthday Of HRH Carlo’ and ‘Only One Died’). More fortunate young women like Bronwen Astor had a view to actually marrying rich and famous people rather than just being hired by them as call girls (see eg. post ‘In Memoriam – Bronwen, Lady Astor’). Dafydd found out about this and the identities of those involved, got into medicine on the back of that knowledge (see post ‘Those Who Are Ready To Serve’), became involved himself and made friends with Sir Kenneth Robinson, President/Chairman of the National Association of Mental Health aka MIND and Harold Wilson’s Health Minister, 1964-68. Dafydd’s mate Kenneth remained around to provide assistance in the form of being Minister for Planning and Land, Nov 1968-Oct 1969 – just when John Allen was acquiring the property which would become the Bryn Alyn Community – and served as Chair of the Arts Council of Great Britain, 1977-82. The sky was the limit for Dafydd…

Under Ian Hislop’s editorship ‘Private Eye’ has been brave enough to publish at least some articles about the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. However for years the Eye knew all about Dafydd et al and the Westminster Paedophile Ring but refused to publish. Ronnie Waterhouse worked as a libel reader for the Eye. Paul Foot, the nephew of Michael Foot, was a journo for the Eye and the whole extended Foot family were colluding with the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See post ‘The Bay Of Pigs Invasion’. Michael Foot was actively involved with the Westminster Paedophile Ring as a younger man and was close friends with many others who were as well. When Footie was a white haired old man waving his stick about and leading the Labour Party, he was still protecting Dafydd, Tony Francis et al. See previous posts, including ‘Oh, No! It’s The Pathetic Sharks!’. Foot was friends with Mervyn Jones, the son of the Welsh psychiatrist Ernest Jones, who was a colleague of Gwynne the lobotomist and many others involved with the ring (see posts ‘The Vermin Club’ and ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’), including Professor Wilfred Abse and his brothers Dr Dannie Abse and Leo Abse, the Labour MP for Pontypool and then Torfaen, 1958-87, (see post ‘O Jones, O Jones’).

In 1987 when ‘After Dark’ got off the starting blocks, Dafydd’s gang were in hot pursuit of me, Brown and my two friends who worked in the media (see post ‘The Turn Of The Screw’). On 18 Nov 1987, a catastrophic fire broke out at King’s Cross Station for which no-one was ever able to find the cause. I was due to be passing through the station at the time but I’d been delayed. After I began this blog I was told that the King’s Cross Fire was designed to kill me. Thirty one people died and more than 100 were injured.

After watching some state occasion on TV in which Lilibet travelled in that hideous Coronation Coach with so much gold baroque decoration that even Lilibet couldn’t have been failed to be impressed by with its tastelessness, Patient F drew a series of cartoons which featured Dafydd riding in the Coronation Coach, waving to the adoring crowds. It was a comment on Dafydd’s delusions of grandeur after he told the ‘Bangor and Anglesey Mail’ that he was ‘Europe’s Leading Forensic Psychiatrist’, so imagine my surprise when I discovered that Dafydd was indeed hobnobbing with the best and sheltering under their huge armour-plated umbrella.

The second series of ‘After Dark’ kicked off with a programme about Masonic corruption. The programme featured Chief Inspector Brian Woollard of the Met who alleged that he was suspended because his investigations into fraud came up against corrupt Masonic loyalties. Masonic corruption was a running theme in the criminality in north Wales prevailing at the time. ‘After Dark’ featured two ex-Masons, a clergyman who abandoned the brotherhood on religious grounds and the solicitor, Sir David Napley, ‘who had briefly flirted with it in the old days’. Former Deputy Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Colin Woods spoke unofficially for the police. The former Labour leader of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, T. Dan Smith, 1960-65, mentioned in the programme how in jail he received the Masonic knuckle squeeze from both wardens and prisoners. T. Dan Smith’s PR firm was involved with Wandsworth Borough Council in pushing a redevelopment scheme, where its contact was Alderman Sidney Sporle. Sporle fell under police suspicion of corruption in the late 1960s and an inquiry led to Smith being charged with bribery in January 1970. Although acquitted at trial in July 1971, Smith was forced to resign all his political offices. T. Dan Smith was involved in business deals with architect Poulson’s company, which was declared bankrupt in 1972. The subsequent hearings disclosed extensive bribery and in October 1973 Smith was again arrested on corruption charges. He pleaded guilty in 1974 and was sentenced to six years’ imprisonment.

T. Dan Smith was a beneficiary of business dealings with those Councillors and MPs from Bermondsey and Southwark who sent kids in care to children’s homes in north Wales. Gov’t Ministers and civil servants ignored the obvious civic corruption. John Poulson was alleged to have had links with the paedophile gang operating in Yorkshire. See previous posts.

 

Brian Woollard was something of a hero at the time. Which might have been why one of those – whom I only recently found out about – who was in those days working with Uncle Harry’s brother-in-law and Prof Stuart Hall in their attempts to Stop Brown, made friends with Brian Woollard. Sir David Napley was the solicitor who represented Jeremy Thorpe and Greville Janner. If Napley had given up Freemasonry it was because his success predicated on corrupt practices was so well-known that he no longer needed Freemasonry to oil the wheels.

In the ‘After Dark’ programme broadcast on 3 Sept 1988, Dafydd’s umbrella Jonathan Miller talked bollocks, although his summarising comments disappointed many, not being quite such bollocks as his previous contributions had been.

Jonathan Miller talking bollocks on After Dark

Sean French in the ‘New Statesman’ described “the best moment of my week” occurring at the end of that ‘After Dark’ edition:

After Dark had been debating the problems of alternative medicine…The last comment of all was made by Dr Jonathan Miller. Since he had been the evening’s most vociferous opponent of fringe medicine I expected him to deliver a final diatribe. Instead of this, he said he wanted to speak of something which was more important than any kind of medicine delivered on a one-to-one basis:

The main welfare which was ever conferred on the human community was actually by social administration. They were the improvement of drainage, the rationalisation of diet and a humane society, administered by a just and equitable government which actually sees human welfare as being something which has to be honoured according to principles of distributive justice.

Therefore, he concluded, he thought the most pressing need was ‘the ousting of this appalling government’.

Jonathan Miller was part of the ex-Cambridge Footlights crowd which included Graham Chapman. When Miller appeared on ‘After Dark’, Chapman had become very friendly with someone known to me in Somerset who knew some of what was happening in north Wales and who inexplicably found himself very wealthy over the next few years (see post ‘Upper Class Idiot Of The Year – Shooting Themselves’). For years Graham Chapman was known to be picking up teenage boys for sex and even ‘adopted’ one of them. Chapman grew up in Leicester where his father was a policeman, had strong links with north Wales and qualified as a Top Doc at Bart’s. Bart’s and the Celebrity Crowd protected Chapman throughout his life. A public image was painted of him as a gay man who was Brave enough to have Come Out years before most other people and as a man who battled alcoholism. The reality was that Chapman sexually abused numerous boys both in the UK and when he was overseas – the rest of the Python team used to quip about ‘Dr Graham disappearing for a few hours in search of company’ knowing damn well that it wasn’t adult company – and behaved very, very unacceptably in public on a regular basis and would undoubtedly have faced charges had he not been Famous and a Top Doc. Michael Palin has just picked up a K in the New Year’s Honours; I never heard the sort of anecdotes about Palin that I heard about Chapman, but Michael Palin did know what Chapman was doing.

The presence of so many people who had shades of Graham Chapman about them in luvvies circles was the reason that those appointed to senior positions at the Arts Council all had a track record of keeping quiet about organised abuse. See previous posts.

 

In Sept 1988 when Jonathan Miller was sounding off on ‘After Dark’ regarding alternative medicine, I was working in Professor Vincent Marks’s team at the University of Surrey, funded by the Cancer Research Campaign. Vincent was the brother of Dr John Marks, then the President/Chairman of the BMA who was locked in battle with Ken Clark at the Dept of Health. The Top Doctors, including John Marks and Jonathan Miller really hated Ken Clarke and the Tories, the flashpoint being the NHS restructuring of NHS management. Clark and Thatch were desperate to rein in the excesses of the Top Docs and put an end to the multiple scams, but because they had a symbiotic relationship with the Top Docs in relation to Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring, they couldn’t. So they introduced ‘managers’, which were simply the former crooked NHS administrators with new job titles, more power and bigger salaries. It was a disaster because there were now two groups of powerful dishonest people in the NHS who hated each other but united in the face of opposition and patients.

While I was working at Surrey, Tony Francis, Dafydd et al  were in direct contact with the BMA, who were providing Francis et al with free advice with regard to concealing their own wrongdoing and framing me for criminal offences. I had no idea that this was going on and I never received any aggro at all from my colleagues at Surrey. What I didn’t know was that my work was stolen by colleagues as yet unknown and given to Professor Nicola Curtin of Newcastle-upon-Tyne School of Medicine who published it with her name on it and raised further funding, while I was told that there was no further funding available for me and I was made redundant after a year. Curtin was not part of our team and I had never even heard of her until a few months ago when I found out about this for the first time. See previous posts. Lord John Walton of Newcastle-upon-Tyne School of Medicine was the then Chairman of the GMC who had refused to act on my complaints about Dafydd et al.

I didn’t realise it at the time either, but just after I began working for the CRC, Dr Peter Mcguire, a former psychiatrist colleague of Tony Francis’s at Manchester University, decided that he was going to be a cancer researcher with the CRC as well and was even given funding by them. McGuire and his mates used their funding to perpetrate a big research fraud with the intention of smearing the Bristol Cancer Help Centre, an alternative medicine clinic, but their fraud was exposed in 1990. It resulted in the suicide of one of their team, Prof Tim McElwain. It didn’t hold them back, nearly all of them went on to become leading figures in cancer research, except for Prof Clair Chilvers, who decided to establish a mental health research charidee and also became Chair of the NHS Trust which served Nottingham. Clair has never looked back. See post ‘Apocalypse Now’.

In 1988 Vincent Marks set up ‘Quackwatch’ and was leading the Top Docs in their charge against alternative medicine. Someone needed to, because it was fraudulent, misleading and was fleecing desperate people. At the time I didn’t realise that Vincent too and his team were plagiarising researcher’s work – let alone mine – and involved with research fraud, although I knew that he and his team knew other people who were doing this, including Professor Robert Baldwin at the Cancer Research Campaign Laboratories in Nottingham University (see post ‘Oh Lordy! It’s CR UK’), but they didn’t blow the whistle. Some members of the Tory Gov’t were supporting alternative medicine and very volubly. Some of them probably ‘believed in it’, others knew that there was growing support for it because so many people were being treated so disrespectfully by the Top Doctors that there was an exodus into the hands of people who were often friendlier and a good deal less offensive but were er con men at worst or ineffective at best.

Patients were caught between a ruthless dishonest medical establishment, a ruthless dishonest political establishment and a collection of alternative practitioners, some of whom were just as ruthless and dishonest as the medical and political establishment. Then the ultimate nightmare arrived – a Top Doctor who was A Bit Alternative! Anyone for Professor Mark Williams’s Mindfulness??? A Miracle which occurred in the late 1980s, when the meditating vicar who was Mark was working with the gang of paedophiles in Gwynedd (see post ‘The Biggest Expert Of The Lot’).

Bangor had a tradition of Spirituality to match the best. In 1967 the Beatles rocked up in Bangor with the Indian guru Maharashi Mahesh Yogi. Brian Epstein had previously agreed to travel to Bangor after the August Bank Holiday to join the Beatles, but he never made it that far. On 24 August 1967, Epstein asked Peter Brown and Geoffrey Ellis down to Kingsley Hill, Epstein’s country home in Sussex, for the bank holiday weekend. After they arrived, Epstein decided to drive back to London alone because an expected group of rent boys that he had invited failed to arrive, although they did turn up after Epstein left. Epstein phoned Brown at 5 pm the next day from his Chapel Street house in London. Brown thought that Epstein sounded “very groggy”, and suggested that he take a train back down to the nearest railway station, instead of driving under the influence of Tuinal, a barbiturate. Epstein replied that he would eat something, read his mail and watch Juke Box Jury before phoning Brown to tell him which train to meet. He never called again.

Epstein died of an overdose of Carbitral, a barbiturate, in his locked bedroom, on 27 August 1967. He was discovered after his butler had knocked on the door and then hearing no response, asked the housekeeper to call the police. Epstein was found on a single bed, dressed in pyjamas, with various correspondence spread over a second single bed. At the statutory inquest his death was officially ruled an accident; caused by a gradual buildup of Carbitral in his system, combined with alcohol. It was revealed that he had taken six Carbitral pills in order to sleep, which was probably normal for him, but in combination with alcohol they reduced his tolerance to lethal levels.

 

When in Bangor, the Beatles stopped over at the Normal College, the teacher training college staffed and run by friends of Dafydd’s who educated generations of the gwerin who subsequently went out into the world but Knew Nuzzing. See post ‘Thought For The Day’.

Previous posts have discussed worrying matters surrounding Epstein’s death which have never been adequately explained, as well as the spate of worrying unexpected deaths of a number of people known to Epstein and the Beatles shortly before or after Epstein died. The pathologists and coroners involved in nearly every case were drawn from a group of three Top Docs who were alleged to have been dishonest and willing to do favours for organised criminals. See eg. posts ‘An Appalling Vista’ and ‘Oliver!’.

The wonderful thing about being a Top Doc in the 1960s who would like to see the back of someone, was that in the event of a ‘Now we’ll look after you dear’ situation, you could prescribe barbiturates which are lethal in quite small quantities and not warn your distressed, volatile patient that six of those and you’re dead. Then you fail to provide any genuine assistance in the face of very real problems that would tax even the most robust person and you wait for Nature To Take Its Course as the Top Docs say.

Patient F was in Surrey/London/Sussex when many of those deaths happened and was part of the hippy/drug/rock scene. The Hergest Unit won’t have known that because once Empowered Service Users have been swallowed up by the psychiatric services, after three years or so they are rendered invisible and the staff charged with neglecting them usually know nothing about them and ignore everything that they say. However, the Top Docs involved in the original neutralisation process do know the details of the criminality of which the Empowered Service Users had knowledge. Dafydd was aware of the celeb crimes that F had info about and at least one hospital – Hellingly in East Sussex, located on the patch of Dafydd’s business partners in the Brighton area – was involved in ensuring that F was never believed again.

Unlike Angels and those who care, I do listen to what nutters chunder on about and I heard a great deal from F.

The Harley Street Connection Dafydd! As well as the Switzerland Link!! And the rest… I heard about all of it.

 

As to present day patients who are trying to navigate a path through the myriad endemically corrupt dishonest Top Docs and researchers, the answer to the question, ‘Oh God, who can we believe??’ is: Dr David Healy re the truth behind clinical trials and the dreadful practices of Big Pharma and Professor Edzard Ernst re the scams involved on the part of alternative medicine. David Healy and Edzard Ernst have been subjected to repeated attempts to stop them working and Carlo himself was behind Edzard’s removal from his Chair at Exeter University (see previous posts). One can of course also believe Brown and I, but as any fule kno, Brown is an armed revolutionary and I am completely mad. Furthermore, we are both absolute bastards who must be regularly told in public very loudly that we are talking crap, only to be quietly approached at a later date for advice by those who have been rude to us. Those who don’t have the decency to do that just plagiarise our work and continue being rude about us or pretending that we don’t exist. Don’t they Cynog Prys and Rachel Perkins?

As for Jonathan Miller’s final comment on ‘After Dark’ re most medical improvements being the result of ‘social administration’ ie. drainage, diet, humane society, equity and justice, well Brown published that just before Miller talked bollocks on ‘After Dark’. Not that it stopped Jonathan Miller doing everything that he could behind the scenes to assist Dafydd and the Top Docs, including making a TV series, entitled ‘Madness’, in 1991 to provide them with good PR when the gang in north Wales was under police investigation. One of the people linked with that series is a friend of a National Treasure who is a close relation of a patient in north Wales who was handed over to Dafydd and abandoned many years ago. Miller’s son William bothered one of my friends when he worked with William at the BBC, before my friend was forced out of the BBC for being friends with me and refusing to accept a bribe. See previous posts eg. ‘The International Language Of Screaming’ for info on Jonathan’s family, friends and colleagues past and present, many of whom have links to Dafydd and even more of whom concealed his criminality.

I am still waiting for Jonathan to join Brown in living modestly and sharing his income with friends in need such as me, thus spreading a bit of equity in a harsh climate. It would involve Jonathan giving up fine wine and food and that rather comfortable life in the posh bit of London that he has enjoyed for so long. Or he could start writing a blog in which he dishes the dirt on his old pal Graham Chapman and Dafydd et al who enjoyed the protection of Jonathan for so long. I won’t say ‘make a police statement about the whole lot of them’ as I have often said before, because I have concluded that I don’t want any of them to go on trial. That would simply serve to pretend that the police and the security services didn’t know what they were doing and Want To See Justice. The state knew, they helped them and they had and have no interest at all in Seeing Justice. As Brown said yesterday ‘Dafydd was the state’.

I want these people to continue to dine at the trough, on far bigger incomes than the rest of us, I want them to have peerages and gongs, to live in the best houses and receive generous pensions of the sort that my generation will not receive. What I do want someone to do is to excavate the North Wales Hospital, recover the bodies that are concealed there, identify them and date their remains and Tell Us How It Happened when No-One Knew. Then I’ll watch Jonathan and his friends try and live the rest of their lives in clover after what went on can no longer be denied. Lynching at dawn in Hampstead Jonathan? Or will it be emigration to another galaxy before the mob catches up with you?

The victims and witnesses are dead and they’re not coming back. As Patient F once said to Dafydd ‘and it looks like you did it’. They’re not coming back, so spare us the ‘we want justice for the victims’ and ‘ooh we’re sorry, we failed’ and the ‘we’re on a journey learning lessons’. The state forced disadvantaged young people to provide sexual services for horrible old gits and murdered those who complained.

Oh DO meet Jonathan! He’s a polymath and SOOOO talented:

Having survived Jonathan Miller talking bollocks until he started quoted a bit from Brown’s publications, ‘After Dark’ excelled on 26 Jan 1991 when Ollie Reed was invited onto the same programme as the feminist writer Kate Millett to discuss ‘masculinity and male violence towards women’, rather than any of the many reasonable people who would have discussed the subject intelligently.

Ollie got pissed and rolled on top of Millett who then made a complaint, though she later asked for a tape of the show to entertain her friends.

Kate Millett was famously diagnosed with bipolar disorder and popularised being a high profile person with that condition before Stephen Fry caused the stampede. At one point Kate Millett was sectioned in a truly horrific psychiatric hospital in Ireland which was run on very similar lines to the North Wales Hospital. It was seriously bad and Millett obtained evidence of corruption every bit as bad as the sort of thing that Dafydd was involved in. Millett only got out when her mates discovered that she was banged up in this hell hole, contacted the authorities and it was discovered that Millett was a Famous Author. She was out within hours. Did Kate or her mates then go public and help those poor bloody patients who were being left to fester within? Er no. They did exactly as the Irish authorities requested; left Ireland with Kate and kept quiet about the whole business. Kate won yet more literary prizes and it was only years later that Millett wrote about what had happened and what she had witnessed in that hospital.

In other words Kate was brought off in exactly the same way as all those horrified clin psych students or other academics who complained about Dafydd: ‘Er, keep quiet about this and your career will go a long way. Prestigious job at Great Ormond Street Hospital? No problem luv, it can be arranged!’

Of course Dafydd didn’t try to bribe me when he offered me a place at Liverpool Medical School if I withdrew my complaint. He ‘spoke supportively to me as he would to any young person’. Neither were any noises made about the wonderful career that I could have in London if only I’d stop going back to north Wales at weekends. All a figment of my imagination, along with Brown’s of course…

Would Brown and Baker please keep quiet about the sexual assaults, the illegal arrests and imprisonments and the murders being committed in north Wales? No we won’t and you fatheads should have known that we were not going to be intimidated.

Can you join the Labour Party please because they’ve started killing us now?

No! Die suckers – or sort out the Top Docs…

On the night of the broadcast of the ‘After Dark’ episode featuring Ollie and Kate Millett, I was languishing in Springfield Hospital as the Drs Francis, Dafydd and the gang did all they could to conjure up serious criminal charges against me and wrote each other letters discussing how dangerous I was while admitting that Dafydd was sexually exploiting patients and that Tony Francis was under suspicion with regard to this as well. See post ‘Some Very Eminent Psychiatrists From London…’ ‘After Dark’ was broadcast just days after I was admitted to Springfield.

Meanwhile, up in north Wales, the gwerin were beginning to cause havoc at UCNW by launching an all-out attack on Graham Day, a senior sociologist who was Not Of The Paedophiles’ Friends. ‘The Guardian’ assisted by publishing an article accusing Graham of racism when he made staff appointments. Nerys Patterson, the sociologist who later married Merfyn Jones, was caught in the crossfire. Nerys and Merfyn – and Graham – remained forever unforgiven and the knives came out once more when Merfyn was appointed VC of Bangor University in 2004. See post ‘Badlands’.

None of this could possibly have been related to the police investigation into a suspected VIP paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire or the police investigation underway at that time into the paedophile ring operating in Leicestershire, as a result of which Frank Beck, a social worker pal of Greville Janner’s, went to prison in Nov 1991. Greville had been interviewed himself and upon returning to the House of Turds had read out that marvellous statement explaining to his fellow Turds that there ‘is no truth in the allegations whatsoever’.

And when they say no they mean yes as Dafydd will confirm.

Greville was famously never prosecuted for the crimes which he did not commit, as part of the ring in Leicestershire which did not exist and which had no links to Dafydd’s ring which did not exist in north Wales/Cheshire.

When many years later the Janners were finally obliged to load Greville, by then an elderly man with dementia, into a car and transport him into a Court for the first part of the ‘trial of the facts’ – Greville pegged out before the last part of the process, the CPS worked at an extra slow pace just to make sure –  and when in Court Greville yelled out in that posh voice of his ‘Oh isn’t this WONDERFUL.’ Janner’s outraged offspring – it was Marion, who gave birth to Buddy the Tibetan Terrier and rates abusive psych wards as ‘excellent’ in her capacity as a mental health campaigner, who accompanied Greville to his wonderful Court hearing – used this as evidence that their poor old dad had no idea what was going on and ooh this was Cruel. It was indeed pretty pointless and I’ve no doubt that by that time Greville was in the later stages of dementia. But dementia patients do recognise the familiar and I thought it salient that Greville had noticed a grand building with judges and barristers and had deemed it to be a wonderful occasion. Greville was a barrister who also spent years in Parliament. If I find myself in a posh building I presume that it is yet another attempt on the part of a gang of paedophiles to fit me up and imprison me. Greville never had that experience. Posh buildings for Greville were associated with being paid a great deal of money, meeting his mates and going on for a good dinner afterwards. Of course Greville thought that his court appearance was wonderful, he thought that there would be wine and nibbles and a visit from a Royal personage to follow.

When I’m in the latter stages of dementia, someone had better leave me in a garden with dogs and hens, at least I won’t be thinking that a fucking paedophile gang is trying to imprison me.

 

Ollie and Kate Millett were however not the biggest Event during that edition of ‘After Dark’. Someone with a sense of humour succeeded in inflicting serious damage on this foolish PR vehicle for Dafydd and his extended circle. The Ollie and Kate episode of ‘After Dark’ received much media coverage because it was taken off air for 20 mins  and the space was filled with an old documentary about coal mining. When the programme returned, Reed was still on set being offensive. It wasn’t Anthony Clare hosting that episode, it was Dafydd’s other mate St Helena. St Helena had allowed Ollie to carry out behaving like a fuckwit as had the production team. St Helena ‘didn’t feel that the situation was out of control’. St Helena stated that the guests could themselves decide whether and when to ask Ollie to leave the set.

By Jan 1991, St Helena was at the centre of the action re Dafydd and the gang herself. St Helena is a friend and colleague of Professor Nigel Eastman, who was one of those who ‘assessed’ me when I was in the clutches of the Top Docs at Springfield; Nigel received a letter from his colleague Dr Robin Jacobson telling him that Dafydd et al were sexually abusing patients and that I was suicidal as a result of the constant attempts to imprison me. Eastman met me once and told me that I ought to return to north Wales because Dafydd ‘is your doctor’ ‘and they know you up there’.

St Helena’s book about the injustice faced by Wimmin at the hands of the British criminal justice system, ‘Eve Was Framed’, contains a thank you to Nigel Eastman for helping St Helena with so many of her cases. See post ‘Eve Was Framed – As Were A Lot Of Other People’. St Helena was involved with the charidee WISH, ‘Women In Special Hospitals’. WISH was established in the mid-1980s to campaign on behalf of women in Broadmoor, Rampton and Ashworth. WISH did highlight the fact that most of the women in those places were not ‘serious criminals’ as well as the dreadful conditions in which they lived. WISH did not mention anything about nearly all those women having been abused in the child care or psych system themselves. Not a word was said when Jimmy Savile became the general manager of Broadmoor although he was sexually assaulting the patients and two of them committed suicide as a result. Not a word was said about the Top Docs perjuring themselves to frame innocent people, not a word was said about the organised criminal gangs being facilitated by the Top Docs and staff of the psych system and not a word was said about the many suspicious deaths of patients. See posts ‘Socio-Political Context Of The North Wales Mental Health Services In The 1980s’ and ‘A Pretty Classy Piece Of Operation’. WISH kept quiet about many, many things. See post ‘Close Your Eyes And Make A Wish’.

One of the particularly hopeless ‘independent’ mental health advocates in north Wales, Marilyn, who refused to support patients making serious complaints because the NHS funded the IAA (Independent Advocacy Association), was given a job as a Wimmin’s advocate at Broadmoor, after her partner committed suicide while in the care of the mental health services in north Wales. See previous posts.

 

The transmission of the Ollie/Kate edition of ‘After Dark’ was interrupted because while the then Commissioning Editor of After Dark, Michael Atwell, was watching the show, he was phoned by someone representing himself as the “duty officer” of the IBA. This individual said that an angry Michael Grade, then Chief Executive of Channel 4, had demanded the programme be stopped. Atwell stopped the transmission, although the guests continued their discussion in the studio.

So why did live transmission then resume after 20 minutes? Because further enquires by Atwell revealed that Grade was away on his boat. In fact it was Liz Forgan, awoken at home, who said the programme should be put back on air… Open Media, the production company who made ‘After Dark’, were asked by Channel 4 to issue a joint statement which would have absolved Channel 4 from responsibility. They refused. Six days later Atwell admitted on Channel 4 that After Dark was not implicated in the screw-up.

Ollie was asked to leave by the other guests some wh after the show resumed transmission. Atwell kept his job at Channel 4 and axed the show at the end of that run in 1991. ‘After Dark’ was resurrected by the BBC in the early years of the millennium.

The highly effective hoax call was made by Victor Lewis-Smith, the man with a sense of humour who on one occasion booked Arthur Mullard as a replacement for Libby Purves when Libby couldn’t appear on one of her mindless Dinner Party On Air programmes on Radio 4. Lewis-Smith explained that once his call was connected he’d shouted ‘Michael Grade is furious about this. Take the bloody programme off… now!’

Channel 4’s Deputy Programme Director, John Willis, wrote an internal memo: “Oliver Reed got drunk and a hoaxer caused the programme briefly to be taken off air. I view the latter with a great deal more seriousness than the former… 1,000 calls from an audience estimated at just 300,000. Remarkable.”

Can someone appoint Victor Lewis-Smith as Cabinet Minister responsible for all media? The nation is sorely in need of him to challenge the layers and layers of complete morons dominating that industry.

‘After Dark’ was consigned to the rubbish bin as a result of Victor Lewis-Smith having the measure of the pillocks who work for C4 and knowing that if Michael Grade shouts at them they have to do what they are told because he wears matching braces and socks and does favours for the brothers of Tory Home Secretaries who concealed the Westminster Paedophile Ring, as described in previous posts. Later in his career Grade graduated on to attending Meet The Guvnors BBC events in Cardiff where he insulted Welsh people (see previous posts) and grovelled to Richard Tait, who was responsible for the lame 1970s offering ‘Nationwide’ and knows why Frank Bough’s career ended after he attended parties with consenting prostitutes and snorted cocaine, yet Jimmy Savile, Rolf and Stuart Hall continued to be allowed into polite company. In the case of Savile he was allowed into Royal circles, as was Rolf even if it was only to paint a picture of Lilibet. Presumably Lilibet didn’t realise that Rolf was a figure of fun, she obviously thought that he constituted a Real Artist. Like Lucian Freud.

 

On 9 March 1991 ‘After Dark’ discussed the doings of Dafydd’s network in Rochdale. The programme was screened after the Rochdale Satanic Panic had resulted in crazy social workers and Top Docs accusing innocent people on low incomes with not much education of doing ridiculous things in the face of no evidence at all and removing their children which resulted in huge long term trauma to some of the children. The nonsensical allegations of Satanic Abuse collapsed and thus ‘After Dark’ immediately discussed child protection proceedings. The show was watched by even more people than expected when news broke that in spite of the blood on the carpet at Rochdale, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (RSSPCC), the Northern Constabulary and social workers from Orkney Islands Council, had seized another nine children to save them from Satan.

On ‘After Dark’ two academics explained their view that ‘disclosure therapy’ and MPD (multiple personality disorder) were iatrogenic. At the time, Dafydd and the gang in north Wales as well as their colleagues across the UK were causing untold distress by demanding that people who had complained about them ‘name their real abusers’. The complainants were then subjected to endless ‘therapy’ in an attempt to point the finger at the wrong person. People who refused to name an innocent person were deemed to be massively problematic and dangerous and in Gwynedd, one man went to prison in the wake of two of his daughters who ‘responded well to therapy’ naming him, whereas his third daughter maintained that her dad was fitted up. She ended up ‘dying as a result of alcohol abuse’ some 10 years ago in Ysbyty Gwynedd, although her closest friend has the suicide note that she left behind. Not that anyone but other patients have ever seen the note because everyone involved knew what the Hergest Unit were doing to complainants so no-one has let on who has that note.

The security services bugged the ‘therapy sessions’ in which innocent people were named. They were recording undercover in Ysbyty Gwynedd when the young woman died and they undoubtedly know the truth in this case. They have not shown themselves or produced that evidence. OK, that young woman is now dead, but she was one of a group of us who were being harassed and threatened by Dafydd’s gang because we had complained about them. All of us were left in danger. Patient F was a man who was denied access to his baby – on a permanent basis – after false allegations were made about him and his baby was left in the care of a family with two members who were known abusers. F’s child will now be in his mid-20s. One of the witnesses to the fit up was found dead at the beginning of the Waterhouse Inquiry.

It’s OK though! Professor Alexis Jay who is Chairing the IICSA and the dear old police are now going to Put Things Right. That’s the Professor Alexis who ordered the removal of the children from the Satanists on Orkney. The Prof Alexis who, even after that, was appointed Scotland’s most senior social worker by Lord Jack McConnell when Jack became Scotland’s FM, after he shafted those two friends of mine who had been at Stirling University with Jack and supported me in the face of Dafydd and the gang. See previous posts.

Professor Alexis and the police couldn’t put this right even if they wanted to. Patient F lost his child and the baby of my two friends who came under fire from Lord Jack died after Musgrove Park Hospital made damn sure that she wasn’t going to survive.

 

One person on the edition of ‘After Dark’ discussing child care proceedings who very obviously had no idea at all as to how social workers and Top Docs were conducting themselves was the feminist author Bea Campbell. She was unshakeable: they are caring, experienced, sensitive, competent people who act in the best interests of children and are as respectful as they can be to parents accused of abuse. Bea, they are not. There are social workers who enter the field wanting to be like that, but they are driven out. I don’t quite know how Bea Campbell constructed her ideas of the way in which social workers and Top Docs conducted themselves, but they were terrifyingly idealistic and the comments of other people would not shift Bea’s ideas which were set in concrete.

I had an interesting experience with Bea about three years ago. I went to see her speak in Cardiff and she was very supportive and generous to the other much younger speaker which was good to see. After the discussion, Bea was flogging her latest book and I purchased a copy. Bea said ‘Oh I’ll sign it for you’ and I said ‘No, don’t worry about that’, because I always think that it’s daft having authors sign books when they don’t know you from Adam. But Bea absolutely insisted; she just maintained that Your Book Is Going To Be Signed By Me and because there was a queue behind me I didn’t like to make an issue of it. So I am the proud owner of a book by Bea Campbell which has written in the front of it ‘To Sally, from Bea’ which a Wimmin’s Message of Love n Peace.

Bea, you don’t know me and if you did you probably wouldn’t be wishing me love n peace.

Bea Knows What’s Best For Wimmin. Even if it’s gang of traffickers who have succeeded in duping her and people are screaming ‘Oh God, look what they are doing…’

Bea: They were sex offenders, they honestly were not Caring Wimmin. Next time, listen to us. We were screaming as loudly as we could and were telling everyone what they were doing. The problem was not just the Men, the Wimmin were fully on board with them. The Wimmin were helping them, they were being used to extract information that the Men couldn’t and they were being used to get the female patients to come back to the ‘service’ when they had walked away in disgust and complained. The Wimmin were there to pretend to the Beas of the world that of course everything was fine, because the Wimmin Were Caring!

Bridget Lloyd. Sheila Jenkins. Nicky Heinersdorff. Jackie Brandt. Sadie Francis. Maggie Fookes. Isobel Hargreaves. Judith Soulsby. Louise Ingham. Alison Greenaway. Jo Bott.

100% complicit Bea. Part of the gang. The gang also put Ella Fisk and Rea Stanley to good use, but I suspect that Ella and Rea were terrified of them rather than it being entirely a matter of free will. There were many other Little Women Helpers as well…

 

The Satanic Panic edition of ‘After Dark’ also featured Andy Croall, the Deputy Director of Nottinghamshire Social Services, who following this TV appearance, was suspended by Nottinghamshire County Council when the authority was at the centre of the row which followed their own so-called ritual aka Satanic child abuse panic. In fact Nottingham was Britain’s first Satanic Panic. Like Bea, Andy Croall believed that Satanic Abuse was a real danger for many kids, although he came from a rather different angle than Bea ie. an explicitly Christian one. Like Bea, it was a case of I Am Right and even after the havoc in Nottingham, Je Ne Regrette Rien. On After Dark Mr Croall said that abortion was the “greatest form of child abuse” and claimed that Christians could help abused children better than social workers.  There are many people who do believe that abortion is wrong and I know Christians in north Wales who have been amazing in their support for people under attack from the gang. I also know Christians who are members of that gang. When I lived in north Wales I was very friendly with a social worker as well who was definitely not abusive. He left social work and became an academic because he was of the view that social work is in such a bad way that he could not protect his clients from abusive colleagues.

After Andy Croall starred on ‘After Dark’, agreeing with Campbell about the existence of Satanic Abuse and said while he was on TV that “as a Christian I believe it’s God’s time for it [Satanic Abuse] to be revealed….. it’s a time when, in God’s plan, it’s going to be revealed”, more than 100 Christians gathered outside County Hall in Nottingham to demonstrate their support for Mr Croall. Meanwhile members of NALGO held a protest backing his suspension from work. Croall’s supporters rallied before a meeting of the county Social Services Committee. Mr Croall’s remarks had outraged members of NALGO, who called for his resignation. Croall was reinstated in August 1991, subject to restrictions which denied him direct responsibility for child care. He resigned in 1992 and took a full-time job with a born-again Christian organisation.

NALGO was one of the unions who had many members who were social workers or social work managers. In 1993, NALGO merged with NUPE and COHSE, both unions who gave their full support to members who were abusers, to form UNISON. A former Angel from the North Wales Hospital Denbigh, David Williams, served as the Gen Sec of COHSE before the merger. See post ‘A Very Cosy Relationship With Some Very Nasty People’. I only ever heard of NUPE refusing to defend one member: it was Alison Taylor after Gwynedd County Council unlawfully dismissed her. NALGO supported their members under virtually all circumstances, even when they had admitted or been convicted of abuse. In north Wales, the NALGO reps were among the abusers. One NALGO rep was allowed to take early retirement after abusing a child and was permitted to draw down his pension before the usual age after receiving a ‘letter of support from a psychiatrist’. I wonder who that very helpful Top Doc was?

Bea, you’re welcome to leave a comment expressing a bit of Wimmin’s Wisdom on the blog…

Deborah Cameron, then the Director of Newham Social Services also appeared on ‘After Dark’. Newham was one of the Boroughs which sent kids in care on placement to children’s homes in north Wales. Complaints were ignored and like other London Boroughs that partnered Dafydd et al in the criminality, Councillors and politicians from Newham participated in the cover-up when the rent boys who had been forced into sex work by Dafydd et al began dying from HIV/AIDS in the mid-1980s, the cover-up being linked to the bonanza that was the development of London Docklands and fully supported by people like Lord Bob Mellish and Sir Robin Wales (see posts ‘The Bodies Buried Beneath Canary Wharf’ and ‘The Battle For The Labour Party’s Soul’).

Although Newham Social Services were condemned repeatedly as being hopelessly inadequate, Deborah did well out of it. Deborah was: Director of Newham Social Services, 1990-2000; Interim Director of Services, ARP (a housing, counselling and employment support service), 2003-05; Chief Exec, Addaction, 2006-09; Board Member, Positive Behaviour, Ireland, (safeguarding) 2010-11; Non-Executive Director, Positive Care Ireland, Cara Care Consultancy (whistleblowing) Feb 2011-Oct 2011; Associate Director, Effective Change, Barts Health NHS Trust, 2013-14; Consultancy, Barts Health NHS Trust, 2014-15; Independent Consultancy, NHS Southend CCG & Southend University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Jan 2018.

Deborah is currently the Independent Chair of NHS England.

Now why does that not surprise me?

Along with Deborah et al, a Posh Lady joined the ‘After Dark’ panel, one Jean Graham Hall. By the time that she starred on ‘After Dark’, Jean Graham Hall was a judge, but as she was obviously in her 60s or older I guessed that she had been knocking around in the criminal justice system as long as Dafydd. I googled Jean, but couldn’t find much out about her – Jean was pre-internet – but she did write a book entitled ‘Child Abuse: Procedure and Evidence In The Juvenile Courts’ in 1987. I have acquired a copy. I was hoping to find the names of Jean’s partners-in-crime in her book, but all I found was references to loads of legislation ancient and modern as well as references to well-known legal cases after yet another disaster blew up.

Jean’s book tells me that Jean was formerly a probation officer and stipendiary magistrate but at the time of publication, she was a circuit judge and a member of Gray’s Inn. So Jean knew Dafydd’s mate Sir William Mars-Jones from Gray’s Inn. Jean sat on ‘After Dark’ talking about the best way of handling cases of child abuse knowing that across the UK, the children whom she was seeing in Court were in the hands of organised paedophile gangs and furthermore Jean had ordered them into the hands of those gangs. But then Jean will have been colluding with child abuse since the day that she began her training as a probation officer.

Jean Graham Hall’s co-author of ‘Child Abuse’ was Douglas F. Martin, ‘formerly a Principal in the Lord Chancellor’s Department’. So Douglas was a retired civil servant in the Lord Chancellor’s Dept. Jean and Douglas published another book in 2003, ‘Yes Lord Chancellor: A Biography of Lord Schuster – Permanent Secretary to 10 Lord Chancellors’.

Both Jean and Douglas had law degrees.

 

Among the Beas and the Committed Christians and the Unions Against The Tory Cuts and the insane social workers and therapists and the molesting Top Docs and their friends and the Posh Lady Judge, sight of the kids in care was utterly lost, as I am sure that it would would have been of the Empowered Service Users had the programme included their plight. In March 1991 Brown and I were two youngish people with postgrad degrees and Brown was working as a university lecturer; I had just been forced out of my job at St George’s where a trafficking ring linked to Dafydd’s gang was in operation. One attempt to imprison me on the perjury of Tony and Sadie Francis had just collapsed and I faced another one in April, at the Royal Courts of Justice in The Strand no less. See previous posts. If Brown and I could not make ourselves heard and Brown was subjected to murder threats followed up by a murder attempt, what chance did anyone else have?

I am not waiting for anyone to apologise to me, I am just waiting for the President of the World to explain how any of this was ever allowed to happen. Perhaps MI5 would like to Open Their Files and Hearts and tell me how they ever got this so badly wrong. And don’t just say ‘Thatch’ or ‘Carlo’, that will not suffice. Documents stolen from me have ended up in the hands of News International and God knows who else, I have spent years being surrounded by members of MI5 disguised as fuckwits, people were planning to murder me, the whole of Bangor University, including my computers, was bugged and hacked and fully paid up gwerin and paedophiles’ friends befriended me to plagiarise my work, extract info and relay it back to Dafydd and Fergus Lowe Central. Meanwhile Merfyn’s wife died at the hands of the Top Doctors along with so many other patients, that the outcomes have shown up as statistical outliers and left north Wales with some of the worst mortality figures in Europe.

There were just a few more episodes of ‘After Dark’ following the appearances of Bea et al. One episode – which I happened to watch at the time incredibly enough – was a discussion about the intolerance of teachers and the host was Dafydd’s mate Anthony Clare. There was only one child selected to appear on the show to air his experiences of being so badly bullied at school, the teachers cheerfully adding to it and that was James Harries. James Harries was one of the Faces of the Late 80s/Early 90s, an eccentric boy from Cardiff who looked a lot younger than he was and who’s parents maintained that he was a prodigy with regard to antique dealing.


James received much media coverage, but ‘After Dark’ with James was particularly fascinating because this discussion about Respecting And Listening To Children could not have been more disrespectful to James and children in general. James was a patronised and then ignored by all the adults who, as usual, were on the sauce throughout the show, got bladdered and were ruder and ruder to him. Anthony Clare was the only person who had the sense not to do this and at one point said to James that the discussion was an excellent example of adults not listening to children. I thought it was terrifically nice of Clare to say that at the time, but that’s because I didn’t realise that he was a mate of Dafydd’s, was just as bad as the rest of them, but knew how to behave himself on TV.

James Harries had a difficult time as a kid but things spiralled out of all proportion as he got older. Harries first TV appearance was in August 1988 on Wogan, when he was 10 yrs old. His dad ran a kissogram business and later participated in various scams, including an insurance fraud which involved setting fire to the family shop and was jailed. James suffered badly as a result of being touted around on TV and in his mid-teens suffered a nervous breakdown and made a suicide attempt. In young adulthood, James underwent gender reassignment surgery in 2001 and is now known as Lauren. This was a consequence of, during childhood, Harries being taken by her family to see a doctor because ‘she displayed feminine mannerisms’. Well that’s never a good idea. Seeing a Top Doctor that is, rather than ‘displaying feminine mannerisms’. Funding for Lauren’s surgery was generated from publicity arranged by the later imprisoned and now dead sleazebag Max Clifford.

In 2004, after Harries had undergone sex reassignment, Channel 4 broadcast a documentary Little Lady Fauntleroy made by actor Keith Allen – Lily’s dad, the Lily who recently horrified the Daily Mail Online by posting pictures of her bits up on social media. The Daily Mail shrieked ‘is there any need for this?’ and faithfully published the photos. Lily’s family snaps were accompanied by little messages including ‘Look, three babies have come out of here’. Much as you might be chuffed with that achievement Lily, the three babies will soon be three children who will be excruciatingly embarrassed when their mates get hold of those pics. It would have been a better idea to have kept them under wraps until the kids were old enough to resist peer pressure. Now for Lily’s next song, ‘How to make your children’s school years really bloody difficult by silly gestures in an attempt to show that you’re an Empowered Woman’. Lily is an alumni of Bedales. Recently a number of former Bedales pupils have spoken about the rampant sexual bullying and abuse to which they maintained they were subjected when at Bedales. There have been allegations that a elite prostitution ring was operating at Bedales. Dr Adrianne Reveley, the corrupt Harley Street Expert Witness who was part of Dafydd et al’s network went to Bedales and Adrianne loved her time there so much that as an adult she threw herself into a leading role with her former school, promoting Bedales, talking about her happy years there and becoming involved with the School Associations. Adrianne took it upon her to do this from the 1990s on, when police investigations were launched into suspected VIP paedophile rings across the UK, including in north Wales. See post ‘Dr Adrianne Reveley – A Loving Tribute’.

The lovely thing about Bedales is that as with all schools that posh it is International! We can’t ask Adrianne who paid her to work her arse off when Bedales became a little jumpy, because Adrianne is dead. She died last year, at a not very great age, very quickly, from a type of cancer that usually takes many, many years to kill someone. But then Adrianne was foolish enough to receive treatment from her colleagues at a London hospital.

 

On 8 July 2005, a gang of five to seven men attacked Lauren Harries, her father and her brother in the family home. One 17-year-old boy was later fined and given a supervision order for his role in the incident. In October 2006, Harries appeared in the Channel 5 TV series ‘Trust Me – I’m A Beauty Therapist’ which was filmed on location in a beauty therapist’s in Swansea.  In November 2008 Harries was featured as a cover girl in the specialist lifestyle magazine TranslivingIn August 2013, Harries became a housemate in Celebrity Big Brother. In September 2013, she appeared on Celebrity Juice. Harries has cited past sexual relations with Russell Brand, claims Brand adamantly denies. Harries repeated her claim in January 2015 stating “It’s all true […] he doesn’t want people to find out, maybe he doesn’t want his mother to know!” He’s vile Lauren, I’d forget about it…

Lauren’s debut single “I Am a Woman” was released in January 2015.

One thing missing from Lauren’s wiki entry was her brief career as a counsellor some years ago, which happened after she – and I think her mum as well – purchased fake PhDs in astrophysics. For a while Lauren styled herself as Dr Lauren and offered her services as a therapist, but that soon ended in headlines and disarray.

A fellow guest on ‘After Dark’ with James Harries et al was Russell Profitt, the Deputy Director of Education for Southwark Borough Council. One of those who was in business with Dafydd et al… Zoe Readhead, the daughter of A.S. Neill, founder and Head of Summerhill, also appeared. I’ve got a lot of time for alternative education having witnessed what happened to people in my own school but I wouldn’t be entirely surprised if there were worrying things about A.S. Neill and Summerhill beyond the usual hysteria of kids Not Wearing Uniform. It’s a long time since I read anything about A.S. Neill and no doubt he had links to those with whom I became disillusioned…I will refresh my knowledge of it all.

After Dark had a belated hurrah in 2003 when the BBC resurrected it and airtime was given to Tom O’Carroll, who in 1972 founded PIE. PIE became affiliated to the NCCL in the 1970s which caused Harriet Harman and other leading New Labour figures great embarrassment when they were reminded of this some four years ago. You did it dipsticks, just as you ignored what the Councils that you ran were doing when they sent all those kids in care to north Wales, when you ignored their complaints and when you snapped at desperate people that you really couldn’t take this further or argue with a ‘psychiatrist’s opinion’ as the abyss opened under us all. Dafydd’s gang had links with PIE and PIE shared an address with other groups committed to Radical Causes, such as the drugs charidee Release and Friends of the Earth. Release definitely knew what Dafydd was doing and ignored it and one of the students with whom I was at UCNW was Lisa Glover, the sister of Mark Glover who was at the time leading FoE. Lisa was a mature student doing teacher training who went around with a big group of students who were much younger than she was; she probably didn’t end up knowing as much about Dafydd et al as I did, but she knew quite a lot. See previous post.

O’Carroll and five other members of PIE were convicted for “conspiring to corrupt public morals” in the 1980s by publishing a magazine advocating sex with children. O’Carroll joined the After Dark panel for a discussion on paedophilia and child protection. Also on the panel were Esther, who I think has been every bit as damaging as PIE in terms of her friendships with Savile and Nicholas Fairbairn and her ignoring of the crimes of Dafydd et al, even after I wrote and gave her full details. St Helena appeared as well. The only surprise is that ‘After Dark’ didn’t take a leaf out of Kilroy or Vincent Kane’s book and invite Dafydd himself.

 

Here’s a pic online of Professor Anthony Clare, looking all wistful, in his Sunday best, in a ward cleansed of Empowered Service Users and redecorated before his photo was taken, ensuring that the nice arched window formed the background.

 

What can we see through the Arched Window today?

Playschool NMM.jpg

It’s a Professor of Psychiatry diagnosing a Narcissistic Personality Disorder. In Little Ted.

What can we see through the Round Window?

  • It’s him again, he’s diagnosing Jemima with Paranoid Schizophrenia now.

Is there a happier scene through the Square Window perhaps?

He’s having a coffee after he’s sectioned Humpty. I note that the pic has been carefully taken to enable us to see that the Professor of Psychiatry is reading ‘The Times’. The stack of ‘Take a Breaks’ were hurriedly stuffed under the chair when the photographer arrived.

Like Adrianne, Professor Anthony is no longer with us, he died unexpectedly in Paris ‘from a heart attack’ in Oct 2007. Which was after Brown and I appeared in the media discussing the mental health services and after the first Corrupt Expert Witness, Robert Kehoe, had lied about Brown and me. See post ‘An Expert In Resistant Service Users’.

Don’t tell me that I’m on the Grassy Knoll, for goodness sake, this STI raddled, lifelong coke snorter who Likes A Wee Dram is still with us:

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

 

To return to Jurassic Park, the source of the madness which erupted in a major way during the late 1970s and 80s.

Sir Jocelyn Simon was born in Hampstead, the son of Claire and Frank Cecil Simon. His father was a stockbroker. Sir Simon was educated at Gresham’s School in Holt, Norfolk and studied at Trinity Hall, Cambridge. He was elected an Honorary Fellow of Trinity Hall in 1963. Simon was called to the Bar at Middle Temple in 1934 and joined the Chambers of Lord Denning.

So Sir Simon was already a fixture at Middle Temple when Ronnie arrived. Ronnie boasted the best connections that one could ever have wished for and he grew up with Dafydd and the gang. Simon will have been off to a flying start by joining Lord Denning’s Chambers as well. Dafydd will have appreciated a link to Lord Denning because Lord Denning famously turned down the appeal of the Birmingham Six not because he believed that they were guilty, but because so many people had been involved in stitching them up that to admit it would result in such an ‘appalling vista’ that Denning thought it best that the Birmingham Six remain in prison. See previous posts.

A very similar logic has been applied to me. I did enjoy registering the gurning on the faces of those who speak to me in the tone of one addressing a loony (as Adrianne Reveley did) after they asked me whether I really did believe that ALL these doctors and caring people could have been in this together, when I began to provide clear accounts of the names of those involved, the dates, the details of the crimes, the links to famous cases and the likes of Lord Denning etc. Much gurning always followed and the conversation would be closed down and a letter written about my delusions and dangerousness, accompanied by a memo or other communication which the gurner never expected me to gain a copy of, simply stating that I Must Be Stopped and Professor Bluglass Knows About This Case.

Yes, it was the name ROBERT BLUGLASS that got them running scared. One mention that the Godfather had been brought in to silence me yet I was still gathering evidence had the distress flares going up like there was no tomorrow.

Bluglass who ran the NHS in Birmingham for years and who is now Director of Compton Verney, one of the finest art galleries in Europe.

When F used to ring up Dafydd and pretend to be a Texan oil millionaire or a distressed aristocrat or someone who’d attended a gay spanking party with Dafydd or a Top Doctor from India telling Dafydd that the police were investigating the murder and ‘the finger points at you’ and Dafydd would listen to all the idiocy, I had no idea that we were dealing with International Criminals who really did know such people and had committed such serious crimes that Dafydd was listening and trying to work out exactly which crimes it was that we had knowledge of.

 

In the WW II, Jocelyn Simon joined the Inns of Court Regiment and was commissioned as an officer in the Royal Tank Regiment. He commanded a special service squadron in the invasion of Madagascar in 1942 and the subsequent six month campaign to liberate it from Vichy French control. Simon later fought with the 36th Division in Burma. Jocelyn Simon returned to legal practice in 1946 and was appointed King’s Counsel in 1951.

Simon retired from judicial office in 1977, but continued to attend the Lords and sat as a crossbencher, despite earlier sitting in the Commons and holding Ministerial office as a Conservative. Simon was appointed as a Deputy Lieutenant for North Yorkshire in 1973.

So Dafydd’s contact Jack Simon was a big name in the Family Courts – very useful if you’re abducting people’s kids – from 1962-71, then a Law Lord until 1977 and was around to Lend A Hand until he pegged out in 2006.

 

The Guardian’s obituary for Jack Simon told us:

With his black eyepatch, bald head and harsh voice, Lord Simon of Glaisdale, who has died aged 95, seemed more like a pirate than the House of Lords’ most respected and feared voice of legality…. [His] impairment made him impatient with his slowed speech and sharper in his remarks, previously veiled by court niceties and the Lords’ excruciating etiquette. Lord Cledwyn, leader of the Labour peers in the 1980s, said he had become “uncontrollable”;

Lord Cledwyn was the Labour MP for Anglesey, 1951-79 and served as the President of UCNW, 1995-2000, through the years of the Waterhouse Inquiry. Lord Cledwyn was a loyal paedophiles’ friend throughout his long life, as a solicitor in Holyhead, then as a Councillor, then as a Minister in the Welsh Office, throughout his days in the Lords. Cledwyn was a big mate of the Windbags who went back to the pre-Cambrian with Glenys’s mum and dad. See post ‘How Much Greater Is A Man Than A Sheep?’.

Clues to Lord Cledwyn’s Midas Touch, which was magically passed on to famille Windbag: Lucille Hughes was the Children’s Officer for Anglesey in the late 1960s; Dafydd carried out ‘research into incest’ on Anglesey in the 1960s; Lord Cledwyn was Secretary of State for Wales, 1966-68, when George Thomas was a Minister in the Welsh Office.

Lord Carter, Labour chief whip (1997-2002), described him as a “rarity – a reusable ultimate deterrent”.

  • Denis Victor Carter, Baron Carter (17 January 1932 – 18 December 2006) was an agriculturalist, who are to be found among the paedophiles’ friends because of the presence of estate farmers and landowners such as the Duke of Windsor, Lord Kenyon and Beata Brookes in the network and of course as a result of the contribution made to the gang by the dysfunctionals of the Dept of Agriculture in UCNW, which resulted in Prof Richard Howarth bagging a job as Thatcher’s adviser. See previous posts.Carter was born in London and the family later moved to Hove to run a sweetshop. He was educated at the Jesuit Xaverian College in Brighton. Denis Carter did national service in the Suez Canal Zone in Egypt, 1950-52 and then studied at the East Sussex Institute of Agriculture – on the manor of the Dafydd’s Brighton gang – and the Essex Institute of Agriculture. Carter later studied at Oxford. In 1957, Carter founded Agricultural Accounting and Management (AKC Ltd), which grew to manage and handle the accounting for a large number of farms, mainly in southern England. In 1968, Carter founded and then worked for 30 years with United Oilseeds, a substantial farm trading operation, introducing large-scale oilseed rape marketing into Britain, and with WE & DT Cave, which raised thousands of pigs in Wiltshire. Carter was the sort of man who benefited greatly from the EEC CAP which provided wealthy farmers with generous subsidies, causing people to believe that struggling hill farmers in Snowdonia were also living like kings.The Windbag nominated as a Labour “working peer” and Carter was in the Lords by March 1987. Which was when the Top Docs had realised that I was not going to forget about their criminality and reinforcements were being called in from all directions. Thus the Windbag – who believed that he was really going to win the General Election in June 1987, as did his pal Tony Francis – nominated an agri-businessman of the variety that did British farming a great deal of harm for a seat in the Lords as a ‘working’ peer.

Baron Carter of Devizes in the County of Wiltshire – Sir Peter Morrison’s brother Charles was the landowner and agriculturalist Tory MP for Devizes, 1964-92 and the Morrison family seat was in Wiltshire – was Labour Spokesman on Social Security in the Lords, 1988-90 and on Health, 1989-92. Did the Windbag think that an agri-businessman would know a great deal about the DHSS, particularly at a time when there was an enormous problem with endemic corruption in the Dept and serious organised crime in the NHS and Social Services? Just when Brown and I – as well as Alison Taylor – were writing and writing to the authorities about the abuse of kids in care and psych patients in north Wales, one of the leading lights with regard to the abuse of kids in the region being Sir Peter Morrison, who sister Dame Mary was Woman-of-the-Bedchamber to Lilibet.

Lilibet knighted Peter Morrison in Feb 1991, just after the screening of the ‘After Dark’ programme with Ollie n Kate Millett, after I had been forced out of my job at St George’s.

Baron Carter had been in the Lords for two months when Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane slashed Prof Ollie Brooke’s prison sentence for the possession of child porn. Ollie was the Prof of Paediatrics at St George’s Hospital Medical School and was Mr Big in the pan-European trafficking ring of which Dafydd et al were a part. See post ‘Oliver!’.

Baron Carter of Massive Subsidies, Herbicides and Intensive Pigs was also an Opposition Whip from 1987 and Deputy Chief Whip, 1990-92.

Lord Carter was appointed Captain of the Gentleman-at-Arms in the Lords when Miranda gained power in 1997 and joined the Queen’s Privy. He also chaired the BBC Rural Affairs and Agriculture Committee, 1985-90 and in 1993 was appointed to Chair the UK Co-operative Council. As the Gov’t Chief Whip in the Lords, Lord Carter steered the Gov’ts programme of legislation, including the Human Rights Act, through the Lords and was involved in the negotiations over the reform of the House of Lords.

In 2001 Sky News investigative journalist Gerard Tubb revealed Denis Carter’s farming company was linked to illegal sales of swill fed pigs to a major supermarket supplier. In 2002 Sky News showed video of pigs kept in sow stalls on the company’s Wiltshire farm, a practice which had been banned in the UK during his time in Gov’t. He denied any knowledge of wrongdoing or of animals being kept in stalls on his farm, but it was later revealed that four years earlier Janet Jones, the wife of the then leader of the Lords Lord Richards, had published a diary describing pigs kept in the same stalls on the farm. She wrote: “Denis told us he was not ‘happy’ with them.” Denis Carter lost his Gov’t position in a Cabinet reshuffle two months later in May 2002.

I don’t like the style of farming that Carter undertook and supported, but does it not say everything about Miranda and Co that Carter was kicked out of the Cabinet for breaching Gov’t legislation with regard to intensively reared porkers, not for his role in concealing an international trafficking ring who murdered witnesses?

  • Carter was President of the Institute of Agricultural Management, 1996-97, a post to which he returned, 2002-06.Denis Carter married Teresa Greengoe in 1957; both their children predeceased him, a son Andrew at the age of 19 in 1982 and a daughter Catherine at the age of 44 in 2004. As a result of this, the Lord and Lady Carter set up the Andrew and Catherine Carter Foundation Trust to help disabled people. Carter was made an honorary member of the Royal Society of Psychiatrists in recognition of his work for the disabled.
  • So what work would that have been then Dafydd?

 

Simon affronted Lord Astor by calling him a “gauleiter” when Astor was trying to hurry him…

Dafydd’s mate Jack dictated what was included in the Child Support Bill at the time when the priority of Parliament was to conceal the Westminster Paedophile Ring…

Simon was a fine example of an outside expert who had come into the Lords, in his case as a 60-year-old life peer in 1971, to contribute his specialised knowledge to its legislative processes…This did not stop him from getting stuck into the minutiae of Lords legislation,

It is the minutiae which kills. The minutiae is there to protect people like Dafydd, to ensure that they and people who have protected them are never held to account, to ensure that if a minion comes forward with, for example, 10,000 documents demonstrating quite clearly serious organised crime on the part of Top Docs and every agency with whom the minion has had contact over 30 years, still no-one will be held to account. The minutiae is there to baffle and confuse everyone except for the layers of Gov’t lawyers who were involved in drawing up the legislation or worked for those who did. If Jack Simon was good at the minutiae in the Lords, it was because he’d spent a lifetime finishing people off with the minutiae. It will have been the minutiae that was used to justify placing Brown, me and my friends under surveillance when we were younger but not for our own protection; it will have been that which led to all of our personal data being accessed and used to damage us.

Dafydd’s existence was predicated on the minutiae. ‘Dafydd’s Done It Again’. ‘Oh, let’s look at the minutiae, there’ll be something in there to get us out of this.’

Some years ago when I was still working at Bangor University and it was being openly discussed that I had been repeatedly wrongfully arrested by the Chairman of the NW Wales NHS Trust, that I was being openly threatened by the Chief Exec of the Trust and others and that I now had possession of documents in which Dafydd had observed that I was attractive and seductive and detailed plans in which I would be wrongfully arrested and imprisoned with the help of the police, the Home Office, helpful judges etc, one of my friends told me that Gov’t lawyers were almost certainly taking advice from lawyers in the US with regard to my case because this was the British state involved in the attempted murder of a British citizen and Christ no-one could let me win even part of this case…

When I received the communication from the Welsh Gov’t denying all allegations of clinical negligence, I was sitting in a locked ward, jobless  and homeless, having been unlawfully sectioned. For the fourth time in my life. Someone certainly got to know the minutiae well. I was in the position that Mary Wynch was when I first met her; I was in possession of mountains of evidence of serious organised crime on the part of the state but the state had dealt with it by breaking the law all over again and rendering me destitute to ensure that even if I began another case, I’d be 70 years old before it ended. As Mary was when Michael Howard finally ruined her when he was Home Secretary.

The point is that thousands of people have died because of the people who had to be protected at all costs from Mary and I.

 

long chairing the joint consolidation committee (to combine several acts of parliament and/or statutory instruments into a single act without significantly changing the law) and contributing his views on parliamentary scrutiny. He last voted in the chamber in 2004…There was little in his history to suggest that he would be other than a typical Tory barrister.

That was because no-one realised that Simon would gain evidence of the most serious Naughtiness in the Highest Places…

He was born Jocelyn “Jack” Simon in London, the son of Claire and Frank Simon, both Unitarians; he himself was for many years a practising Anglican…he joined the chambers of the future Lord Denning, which did not stop him from crossing swords with him when they were both in the Lords…

Being brought up as Nonconformist but then joining the Anglican Church – Thatch followed the same path – meant that Sir Jack had many options covered regarding concealing organised abuse. Previous posts eg. ‘There’s Methodism In This Madness’ and ‘Come, Friendly Bombs’ described how the Nonconformist denominations colluded with Dafydd et al; as of course did the Anglican Church, the RC Church and even the Quakers…

Lord Denning and Jack Simon might have crossed swords but they were concealing the same heap of dung.

…Simon’s resignation as an MP did not end his affection for the north. The Glaisdale in his title came from his 17th-century farmhouse home in north Yorkshire, where he and his second wife, Fay, had been living for a decade. He became one of north Yorkshire’s deputy lieutenants, remaining sensitive to northern feelings, such as their fear that the Channel tunnel link would mainly benefit the south-east…

Simon kept his finger in the Pie that was Yorkshire of Jimmy Savile and the trafficking gang and ensured that his finger remained there. Sir Jocelyn Simon, being a legal big wig based in Yorkshire for so long, knew that no nonsense down to earth straight talking Yorkshireman who wasn’t a namby pamby Eton educated ponce like so many of his fellow judges, dear old Judge James Pickles. Who did a lot for Jimmy Savile and other sex offenders of his and other parishes. See post ‘Judge James Pickles’.

 

An ‘avowed feminist’ – like Bea Campbell – Simon thought divorced women, particularly those no longer young, had a rough deal. He helped provide them with the right to a share of their ex-husbands’ pensions... Bea was right behind him.

Family Lore: Lord Simon of Glaisdale

 

Jack Simon married his first wife, Gwendolen Evans, in 1934, who sounds a bit Welsh. She died in 1937. Jack married his second wife, Fay, in 1948; they had three sons. One, Sir Peregrine Simon, also became a barrister and High Court judge.

Peregrine Simon was educated at Westminster School and Trinity Hall, Cambridge. He was called to the Bar at Middle Temple in 1973. Ronnie Waterhouse had already arrived at Middle Temple a few years previously. Peregrine was appointed a Bencher in 1999 and Recorder in 1998. He was knighted in 2002 at the same time as Colman Treacy, who was also then appointed as a High Court Judge. Peregrine was appointed as a Lord Justice of Appeal in 2015.

 

Sir Colman Maurice Treacy (born 28 July 1949) is a retired Lord Justice of Appeal. Previously, he was a barrister in Birmingham, practising mostly in criminal law in the Birmingham Courts. So Treacy knew about the civic corruption in that city as well as the abuse of kids in care both in Birmingham and when they were sent to children’s homes in north Wales. Treacy will have been aware of Robert Bluglass’s role in concealing organised abuse and the activities of the West Midlands Serious Crime Squad will not have escaped Treacy’s notice. Treacy presided over the 2005 trial of Afghan warlord Faryadi Sarwar Zardad under the principle of universal jurisdiction with conspiracy to torture and conspiracy to take hostages during the 1990s in Afghanistan. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison and recommended to be deported. Treacy also presided over the trials of two of the killers of Stephen Lawrence.

Treacy attended Stoneyhurst College, a Jesuit boarding school in the Ribble Valley, Lancashire and studied at Jesus College, Cambridge. He was called to the Bar at Middle Temple in 1971, so he joined Ronnie in there just before Peregrine arrived.

Treacy was appointed Assistant Recorder in 1988 and Recorder in 1991, a post he retained until his appointment to the High Court on 1 October 2002. From 2006 to 2010, Treacy was a Presiding Judge of the Midland Circuit. He is now Chairman of the Sentencing Council for England and Wales. On 1 October 2012, he was appointed a Lord Justice of Appeal. Treacy presided over a number of criminal trials. On sentencing Nottingham gang boss Colin Gunn to 35 years for conspiracy to murder the parents of a gangland rival, Gunn told Treacy to “die of AIDS”. Thanks to Treacy and a fellow barrister on the Midlands circuit failing to put a stop to Dafydd and Bluglass’s crimes, a lot of former kids in care did, although I imagine that Treacy ensured that he was never exposed to the virus in the way that those Cared For were.

Official portrait of Mr Kenneth Clarke crop 2.jpg

Ken Clarke didn’t join Ronnie, Peregrine and Colman in Middle Temple, when Ken was called to the Bar in 1963, he joined an even bigger mate of Dafydd’s in Gray’s Inn, Sir William Mars-Jones. There’s the link that we need to be aware of!! Sir William with his farming family still living in Denbighshire, Sir William who’s sister-in-law Dilys Mars-Jones was receiving confidential documents about my complaints when Ken was in the Dept of Health, Sir William who was President of UCNW, 1982-95. Ken, you really could not have known about Dafydd and Gwynne could you?? I knew that you were behind that business of my father’s employers in deepest Bridgwater being inexplicably taken over by a Nottingham man who worked in a different field and the chaos that ensued (see post ‘Jennifer’s Diary’) –  you cheeky monkey Ken as they used to say in Somerset!!

Did you know a man called Tom King Ken? Of course you did! When you were hobnobbing with William Mars-Jones and businessmen in Nottingham as well as with Trumpers, Edwina Currie, Virginia Bottomley, the paedophile-friendly civil servants in the Dept of Health and Lord Glenarthur and failing to stop them from giving Jimmy Savile a job as the general manager of Broadmoor – or indeed failing to stop Simon Glenarthur from purchasing infected blood products from the US which resulted in thousands of NHS patients being infected with hep B and/or HIV – Lord Tom was Secretary of State for N Ireland. In July 1989, once I’d been lured into that job at St George’s in order to have me driven out of medical research by a VIP paedophile gang – only the best Ken  n Tom, Professors of Paediatrics, Obs and Gynae, Psychiatry and the peers, celebs etc who were frequenting Cynthia’s brothel at Ambleside Avenue – Lord Tom became Defence Secretary! A reward for covering up the crap at Kincora!

 Now then Ken and Tom, when it finally dawns on the great British public what you two did – allow a vicious gang of criminals to traffick kids in care out of the UK and into other countries, participate in importing and dealing class A drugs and run a trade in child porn, while murdering witnesses, as well as knowingly infect thousands of NHS patients with lethal viruses – do you think that they’ll string you up by your necks or your knackers?

 When are we going to be told the truth about Paddy’s death then?

Ken: Do you know anything about the violent assault on Brown in broad daylight in Nottingham, when you were so busy in relation to people known to me? The man who had been threatening to kill Brown for years – I did tell people about it but I was ignored – encountered him in Nottingham and smashed Brown’s head repeatedly on the pavement. Brown sustained a broken cheek and teeth. A student witnessed everything and helped Brown. When the case came to Court, Paul Bates, the man who’d tried to kill Brown, had got himself a rather posh black barrister who was Down With The Kids and accused Brown of attacking Paul and of cooking up a deal with ‘his student’ to frame Bates. The posh black barrister hurriedly retreated when it was revealed that the student who helped Brown wasn’t one of Brown’s students, didn’t know Brown and had gone to his aid because he could see that someone was trying to kill Brown.

Ken, Brown wasn’t Bates’s first victim. Bates had nearly murdered the old man who lived in the flat next door to him and when the case came to Court, Bates was found not guilty after it was alleged that the old man’s injuries were self-inflicted. The police knew about Bates because there had been so many complaints of assault and threats made about him. The West Midlands Police, Aston University and the NHS in Birmingham knew that Bates was a very great danger to the public.

In 2010, Colman Treacy was the judge at the first major English criminal trial in more than 400 years to be heard without a jury. The decision by the Court of Appeal to allow the trial without a jury came after the third attempt at a trial fell apart due to attempts at jury tampering. The decision was criticised by Shami Chakrabarti of Liberty. The case concerned the £1.7 million robbery of the Menzies World Cargo warehouse at Heathrow airport in February 2004, of which all four of the accused were convicted. The trial reportedly cost £25,000,000.

Shami, could I invite you to turn your attention to the equally worrying tradition of judge tampering in trials involving witnesses to the Westminster Paedophile Ring?

There did used to be a nice pic of a judge who was tampered with, in Chester in 1990 to be precise, Mr Justice Roch, who became Lord Justice John Roch after the tampering, but it has disappeared and now if one puts Roch’s name into google, one gets this:

  • Thoughts and stuff: Most handsome Mr Rochester(s)

Yes, as any fule kno, it’s Mr Rochester.

So here’s another judge who was tampered with because of a Madwoman In The Attic:

After John Roch had been tampered with, Brown observed ‘I wish I could nobble judges and rig Court trials’.

There’s a website called ‘Natural Collection’ which advertises gifts and it has a section for Duchy Originals, but the Natural Collection has nothing from the Duchy Originals range on offer at the moment. However, here are a couple of other things currently advertised on the Natural Collection:

I am told that Dafydd’s Gang became over-excited with regard to the possible recruitment of me after one of their gangster friends spotted Brown and I going into a transvestites night club in Birmingham in 1982. It was quite simple Dafydd, we wanted to see the film ‘Pink Flamingo’ which at the time was not for general release, so we became 24 hour members of the Arts Lab in order to be lawfully allowed to watch the film! ‘Pink Flamingo’ starred Divine, who later became mainstream, but Divine was still considered quite cultish in 1982.

Ursula - Cautionary Women

Just to clarify another point Dafydd:

Whiskers, our gay friend who ran the antique and clothes shop in Birmingham whom we used to visit and who used to compere at the gay club ‘Heaven’, was a friend. You might not have any friends whom you do not sexually exploit Dafydd, but you might be surprised that Brown and I have a whole variety of friends and we haven’t shagged all of them. But then we’re not running a trafficking gang.

Another offering from the Natural Collection which surely is a must for the Men In My Life – I understand that Dafydd believed that there were many people in this category and his feelings were hurt because Gwynne and him were excluded so they tried to kill me – is ‘Dalit’, for Male Grooming. So to speak. Dalit is a must for the well dressed man and looks just the sort of thing that one would find in the possession of the dalits of Bryn Estyn and the North Wales Hospital Denbigh, they all had one of these sets:

In December 2011, Colman Treacy presided over the trial of Gary Dobson and David Norris for the racially aggravated murder of Stephen Lawrence in April 1993. Five men had been arrested and two were charged but the prosecution was dropped by the CPS due to lack of evidence. A private prosecution of three of the suspects was brought by the Lawrence family in 1994…

Call Mr Mansfield QC of the Mansfield Community! You’ll hear it echoing through the Court… Call Mr Mansfield… Er not if you’ve complained about Dafydd obviously, but in all other cases, terrorist charges, miscarriages of justice, prison riots, Inquests on Princesses and their Muslim boyfriends, call Mr Mansfield… gardens dug, chimneys swept, Mr Mansfield is appearing at a Court and on a picket line near you soon…

The Torygraph obituary for Sir Jocelyn Simon provided a few more insights:

Although by nature a gentle and genial character, during his time in the High Court Simon became an outspoken, and at times controversial, opponent of changes to the law that made divorce easier. His views were underpinned by his firm belief in the merits of the traditional family.

The gentle natured pirate’s firm belief in traditional life was only equalled by his commitment to protecting a paedophile ring which depended upon breaking up families in order to acquire the kids who could then be taken into care and battered, raped and forced into sex work before they were 16 yrs old…

To those who advocated easier divorce by consent, he contended that wives were often brought under “a quite cruel and relentless pressure” to divorce husbands who wished to remarry.

Well Dafydd dumped a few wives but some of the others were desperate to escape.

Simon argued that there was a sound economic, as well as a moral, argument for monogamy,

Cultures who practice polygamy would disagree and point at the wreckage of ‘monogamous’ relationships that can so often be spotted in our own culture.

and that the reason for many marriages breaking up was simply that wives lost their sexual attraction before husbands lost theirs.

Dafydd divorced four times, obviously being a man who retained his sexual attraction while all four of the ex-wives lost theirs, along with the numerous mistresses and other women who were casually exploited and dumped. Excuse me while I swoon.

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

“Is it consonant with our ideas of justice,” Simon asked, “that a husband who has enjoyed the services of his wife during her springtime and summer, should be able to cast her away in the autumn?” On another occasion he observed: “The cock can feather the nest because he does not have to spend most of his time sitting on it.”

A lot of hens had their nests destroyed and the eggs and chicks murdered by Dafydd and the gang.

THE TRIALS OF GORDON ANGLESEA | REBECCA

 

Simon proposed a “new deal” for wives, suggesting that the matrimonial home and its contents should be treated as a community asset throughout a marriage. As the 1960s wore on, however, some of Simon’s views came to be seen as rather out of date.

Allowing Top Docs to run a paedophile/trafficking ring perhaps while banging on about wives who were too fat and ugly to get a man while Dafydd retained his sexual attractiveness?

 

In 1965, for example, he lent his support to a scheme to prohibit divorce for couples with children under 16,

So was the plan simply to hand the kids over to Dafydd’s gang but prohibit the divorce?

adding that the sums released by reducing the divorce rate could be spent on education and marriage guidance.

Dafydd’s charidee CAIS provides teaching with regard to Safeguarding Children From Sexual Abuse. The fact that most Social Services Depts in the UK are now under police investigation because of the targeting of kids in their care by organised criminal gangs would suggest that prevailing notions of ‘education’ in every sense would seem to be questionable. Divorce statistics, even among those who have received ‘marriage guidance’, inform us that marriage guidance is ineffective.

These proposals were greeted by howls of execration from those urging easier divorce. The Labour MP Leo Abse described them as “extraordinarily naive”, and seeming to come “out of another century”. Far from benefiting the children, Abse argued, such a rule could result in appalling suffering for them and leave them mentally scarred.

The proposals were naive and coming out of another century and they probably would have scarred children, but then so did Leo Abse when he concealed the child sex offences of his close friend George Thomas and played a leading role in facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Abse was investigated for historical abuse himself.

...a leader in The Daily Telegraph supported Simon’s stance: “If the parents of young children know that they cannot approach the divorce court for five, 10 or 15 years, they will be compelled to make the best of the situation and so of each other. Thus they may even come to appreciate, and to practise, the true ideal of responsible family life.”

Nearly every parent on the planet did a better job of looking after their own kids than the people running the children’s homes in Gwynedd and Clwyd. Or Islington, Lambeth, Leicestershire, south Wales, Sunderland, [that’s enough paedophile rings run by Top Doctors and Social Services – Ed]…The people who protected that lot are in no position to dispense advice re personal relationships and responsible family life to anyone else.

Specialising in family and trust cases, he blended forensic rigour with a senatorial style of advocacy.

‘Family cases.’ Jack will have known the individuals involved in giving expert advice, evidence etc. His forensic rigour missed a few clues.

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

  • Bertrand Russell, London England. 1953. (Large Version ...

….Within two months of becoming an MP he had been appointed Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Attorney-General. From 1954 until 1957 he served as a member of the Royal Commission on the law relating to mental illness and mental deficiency, after which he became Joint Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Home Office (under Rab Butler)…

Jack knew Dafydd and Gwynne personally and Bluglass, no doubt about it. There was much PR with regard to Rab Butler’s Royal Commission re mental illness, but it achieved very little. Butler did suggest ‘reforms’, but many of them were never implemented despite the constant assurances from psychiatrists that ‘things are very different today’ and ‘the locks have gone from the wards’. Because psychiatry was being used to facilitate organised abuse, the field could not be reformed; the serious criminality of Top Docs, social workers and others would have been impossible to conceal and the state could not have dealt with it. People with mental health problems have been constantly excluded from every piece of human rights legislation and legislation re informed consent and access to data held on them. If that had not happened, psychiatry would not have survived and furthermore there would be no way of removing whistleblowers from professional employment. The process for doing so is always the same: if the whistleblower cannot be successfully accused of misconduct, a requirement from the employer or professional body for a mental health assessment is always imposed and the Top Doc will find something terribly wrong with them.

As Solicitor-General, Simon led the prosecution in the “Mummy In the Cupboard” trial at Denbighshire Assizes. The defendant, a 65-year-old Welsh woman, was accused of strangling her lodger and hiding her body in a cupboard in her house for 20 years until it was discovered, in a mummified state, by her son, who was decorating the house for her as a surprise for her on her return from hospital. All the while the defendant had been drawing the dead woman’s maintenance money. When his key witness collapsed while giving evidence, however, Simon was forced to ask permission to halt the prosecution case, and instead the defendant pleaded guilty to fraud.

I haven’t come across this case yet, but it will have been a miscarriage of justice and it will have involved Gwynne et al.

Simon might well have risen further in government, but he had no hesitation in leaving politics and moving, on the death of Lord Merriman in 1962, to the job for which he had been preparing all his life.

Simon left politics just before the Profumo Affair became public.

He proved a patient, careful and conscientious judge who usually refrained from interruption. During his presidency he suffered a severe stroke, which resulted in his reappearance on the High Court bench wearing a black eye patch. But his mental powers remained as sharp as ever…

In 1970 he warned that vigilance was needed to ascertain whether the new Divorce Reform Act involved a substantial reintroduction of the “rigged adultery” divorce that in the past had been found so objectionable.

Later the same year he resigned from the Marriage Guidance Council in protest at an article in a council booklet welcoming the new laws, which made irretrievable breakdown of marriage the sole ground for divorce.

The piece had suggested that either it would become acceptable for young people to live together unmarried, or else divorce in the mid-20s would become accepted as an ordinary part of life. Simon commented sternly that, while the author may have been right, it was not a situation which an organisation designed to promote stable marriages (or which he as a family judge) should view with complacency.

I remember the moral panic well. Brown and me, being the shockers that we were, not only lived together without being married, but we lived with quite a few other people as well. All in the same house. While a gang of paedophiles threatened to murder us and it was ignored by all authorities.

Simon was appointed a Lord of Appeal in Ordinary in 1971, and finally retired in 1977.

Thereafter he continued to participate in House of Lords debates as a cross-bencher. In 1977 he made an impassioned appeal on behalf of one-parent families, castigating the government’s negative response to the Finer Committee’s calls for a new social security benefit. Children of one-parent families, he argued, lived lives which were “as stunted as the limbs of those who slaved in the mills and factories of the 19th century”.

The children from north Wales children’s homes who experienced anal injuries, one of whom was told by a Top Doc that he had ‘piles’, experienced ‘stunted’ lives. As did the kids who sustained broken bones which were left untreated and the boy who had a gun bashed into his mouth, breaking his teeth. Then there were the girls who were raped and made pregnant, only to have their baby forcibly removed or who were subjected to an illegal abortion and the attendant risks. The kids who were never taken to a dentist, who didn’t receive any schooling, who were fitted up for criminal offences and hung themselves in Risley Remand Centre, the kids who contracted STIs including Hep B and HIV, the kids who became alcoholics and drug addicts and of course sex workers, the kids who were found dead before they were 25 years old… The outcomes for the kids in care in north Wales and elsewhere were dire, absolutely dreadful. They would only have been better off in care if there was a certainty that their own parents were going to murder them. Very nearly anything would be less damaging than Lucille, John Allen and Dafydd.

During the passing of the Matrimonial and Family Proceedings Act in 1984 he reaffirmed his long-standing belief that wives suffered economically through the very fact of marriage, and were therefore entitled to “financial justice” when marriages broke down.

Some wives undoubtedly did, but by 1984, the ‘economic’ damage if wives were in an abusive relationship or one which ended with them being treated unfairly would be increased if they remained in the relationship for a long time in line with Jack’s quaint notions of the benefits of long term monogamy even with a scumbag.

Later he was a prominent critic of Lord Mackay’s legal system reforms in 1990 and his divorce law reforms in 1996. On another occasion Simon argued that the interests of any children affected by divorce should be paramount, but eventually withdrew his proposed amendment stating that there should be no divorce in families where there were children under 16. He also spoke in favour of preserving hereditary peers…

Thatch gave George Thomas an hereditary Viscountcy in 1983. Being a gay paedophile and one of those who was protected by Jack Simon, poor old George Thomas’s Viscountcy died when he did in Sept 1997. As the Waterhouse Inquiry was taking evidence and calling the people whom George’s friends had raped, infected with STIs and repeatedly beaten up a bunch of lying bastards.

 

…Latterly his son Sir Peregrine Simon, a High Court judge, took over the house in Yorkshire, and Lord Simon lived in London.

Good to know that there’s still a Simon in Yorkshire keeping a family finger in the PIE…

 

Here’s a bit about Bernard Levin whom Sir Jocelyn Simon knew better than to cross, even if Jocelyn looked like a pirate and was shit hot on the minutiae.

Henry Bernard Levin (19 August 1928 – 7 August 2004) was described in his obituary in ‘The Times’ as “the most famous journalist of his day”, probably because he worked for ‘The Times’.

Levin was born in London, the son of a tailor of Jewish Besserabian descent and his wife. Levin’s father abandoned the family and moved to South Africa when Levin was 3 yrs old. Bernard was brought up with the help of his maternal grandparents, who had emigrated from Lithuania at the turn of the 20th century. Levin was encouraged in his schoolwork by his mother and won a scholarship to the independent school Christ’s Hospital in West Sussex. Or as would be said in Bethesda by people if they had known of the criminality to which Levin had contributed, ‘Jesus Christ’s Hospital’:

Levin’s time at Jesus Christ’s Hospital was not pleasant. He was a Jew at a Church of England establishment; he was from a poor family; he was slight of stature; he was utterly indifferent to sport and his teachers were bullies who were feared by the pupils. Levin adopted a Marxist stance, hanging the Red Flag from a school window to celebrate the Labour victory in 1945. In the local streets, the school’s conspicuous uniform, including a cloak and tight stockings, made the pupils a laughing stock. Levin’s biographer Bel Mooney writes of this period, “Jeers put iron in his soul”. Among the consolations of Christ’s Hospital was its thriving musical life. At concerts by the school orchestra (whose members included Levin’s contemporary, Colin Davis), Levin listened seriously to music. 

Levin studied at the LSE, 1948-52. He was encouraged at the LSE by Karl Popper and Harold Laski and got on very well with both.

Karl Popper (l.) and Harold Laski

Uncle Harry’s brother-in-law Ralph was at the LSE at the same time as Levin, as was Lady Juliet Bingley. Academics at the LSE at the time were Brian Able-Smith and Richard Titmuss, who’s work underpinned most of the post-war welfare state. Abel-Smith was almost single-handedly responsible for the flaws that were built into the NHS from its creation and he knew that the most disadvantaged patients were being abused, neglected and were indeed dying. Abel-Smith papered over the cracks for decades and even in the 1970s when the rot was spreading uncontrollably, Abel-Smith was called upon once more to reassure everyone that the NHS was a Friend Of The Poor; Abel-Smith knew that the NHS in Wales was performing far worse than in England and he knew that George Thomas, as Secretary of State for Wales, had mismanaged and plundered the NHS budget in order to buy off the powerful Top Docs in the Welsh National School of Medicine at Cardiff. In the late 1940s/50s many people who later became big names in welfarism or the Labour Party studied at the LSE; a good number of them colluded with the Westminster Paedophile Ring, including Joan Mercer, who married Dr Dannie Abse.

These were not idealistic socialists, they were ruthless state bureaucrats and many of them, such as Abel-Smith, lived to see the beginning – or the whole of – the Waterhouse Inquiry and the cover-up had to continue at any cost.

  • Bernard Levin became a skilled debater and also wrote for the LSE student newspaper , entitled ‘The Beaver’ no less. After graduation, Levin joined the BBC’s North American Service, his job being to read newspapers and weekly magazines, selecting articles that might be useful for broadcasting. From 1953, Levin spent a year working on the weekly periodical ‘Truth’. The paper had recently been taken over by the publisher Ronald Staples who, together with his new Editor, Vincent Evans, was determined to cleanse it of its previous right-wing racist reputation. Levin’s Jewish surname, together with his skills  in shorthand and typing, gained him immediate acceptance. He was offered the post of “general editorial dogsbody, which was exactly what I had been looking for”. After a year, Evans left and was succeeded by his deputy, George Scott; Levin was promoted in Scott’s place and wrote for the paper under a variety of pseudonyms.

While still at Truth, Levin was invited to write a column in ‘The Manchester Guardian’ about ITV, which was launched in 1955. Levin was very rude about ITV and observed that “a mentally defective aborigine who was deaf in both ears would have little difficulty in leaving ‘Double Your Money’ £32 richer than when he entered”. Such insults were considered far more acceptable when Levin wrote that than they are now, but Levin missed the fact that ‘Double Your Money’ was not aimed at him. I despair of the crap on TV which is why I don’t bother to have one, but even I know that I’m not the target audience. What was far more offensive than ‘Double Your Money’ was Levin remaining silent throughout his whole life about a criminal gang specialising in child abuse and trafficking that involved well-known people in the media and politics. If Levin wanted to be rude about mindless TV, surely he could have been rude about ‘Jim’ll Fix It’ and ‘Clunk Click’ and revealed Savile’s off screen habits. Levin didn’t mention Rolf either. Or Stuart Hall. Or even the woman who built an entire media career on displaying deformed root vegetables on TV and describing violent sex offenders as ‘perfectly charming’ before reinventing herself as a campaigner against child abuse.

  • ‘Perfectly Charming’: Sir ‘Nicky’ Fairbairn with whom Esther had sex. Although I don’t know whether Esther had the affair with Nicky while she was having sex with Dessie Wilcox while Dessie was married to someone else. Fairbairn was a member of the Scottish Minorities Group which gave rise to PIE and was accused of child sexual abuse by the daughter of one of his friends.

    Compare with another sex offender of whom Esther knew nuzzing:

  •  Nicky with his wife, who, after the old bastard had died of drink, admitted that he violently assaulted her regularly and that she lived in fear of him.

Whether Esther had an affair with Nicky while he was married to the wife pictured above or to his first wife I know not. Neither do I know if Esther was having an affair with the Perfectly Charming Nicky at the same time as that mistress of his became so distressed that she tried to hang herself outside his house in central London.

Like Jimmy, Perfectly Charming Nicky was known to Dafydd.

 

If only Bernard Levin had lived in Wales during the 1990s, he could then have enjoyed ‘Ready Money’, a quiz show hosted by Owen Money, which reflected just how poor Wales was in so far as people from Anglesey appeared on ‘Ready Money’ in the hope of winning the jackpot which was about £50. Even if they’d won the jackpot it would have barely covered the train fare to Cardiff. ‘Ready Money’ was such a cheap n nasty game show that when a contestant answered a question correctly, Owen Money took a fiver out of his back pocket and gave it to them, the prize for each correctly answered question being £5. Owen Money was completely talentless and his claim to fame was that in the 1960s and 70s he used to play in rock bands in Merthyr. When Owen Money name-dropped some of those with whom he spent his youthful years of excess, I recognised some of the showbiz names as being linked to Dafydd and the gang. Owen Money will have known about George Thomas as well, which was probably why he was being paid good money to appear on TV in the 1990s banging on about some rather lame 1960s musicians. Owen Money had a son who was done for drugs offences some years ago…

The worst St David’s Day evening that I have ever experienced was in an hotel in Cardiff where I was staying the night and I switched on the TV and it was a St David’s Day special hosted by Owen Money. The star guest was Max Boyce, which only livened my evening up by reminding me of the tales I heard about Max Boyce from someone whom I knew who used to frequent the gay scene in Cardiff…

 

In 1956, Levin found himself in disagreement with Truth’s support of the Anglo-French military action in the Suez Crisis. The proprietor and Editor of the long-established weekly ‘The Spectator’, Ian Gilmour, invited Levin to join his staff. Ian Gilmour was a barrister who was a member of Inner Temple – as was Sir Cecil Havers, his daughter Lord Butler-Sloss and Sir Simon Hughes who was never in the least bit gay -who was Secretary of State for Defence in Ted Heath’s Gov’t and survived to become Lord Privy Seal in Thatch’s Gov’t, despite being a leading ‘wet’. Now how did he persuade Thatch to keep him in Gov’t? See previous posts for info about Gilmour.

Levin became the political correspondent of The Spectator.  Levin wrote his column under the pseudonym “Taper” and made no pretence of even-handedness. There were politicians he liked and politicians he did not like. For those in the latter category, “Taper” created insulting and not very witty nicknames. Taper was not Levin’s only work for The Spectator. He wrote on a wide range of subjects, including supporting the publication of Lady Chatterley’s Lover novel and he denounced the retired Lord Chief Justice, Lord Goddard. The latter move led to a secret meeting of more than 20 senior judges to see whether Levin could be prosecuted for criminal libel; there was no prosecution and ‘his accusations about Goddard’s vindictiveness, deceit and bias have relatively recently been claimed to have been justified’. When one has knowledge of the extent to which judge tampering takes place, I can only marvel at how Levin managed not to be prosecuted. What could his magic potion have involved?

In 1959, Gilmour, while remaining as proprietor, stepped down as Editor and was succeeded by his Deputy, Brian Inglis; Levin took over from Inglis as Assistant Editor. Later in that year, after the election victory of another of his bêtes noires, Harold Macmillan, Levin gave up the Taper column, professing himself to be in despair.

Concurrently with his work at The Spectator, Levin was the drama critic of ‘The Daily Express’ from 1959, offending many in theatrical circles. 

Gilmour discouraged any hopes Levin might have had of succeeding Inglis as Editor and in 1962, Levin left both The Spectator and The Daily Express, becoming drama critic of ‘The Daily Mail’. He remained there for eight years and for the last five of them also wrote five columns a week on any subject of his choice.

By the early 1960s Levin was becoming a well-known name, but not yet a well-known face. In 1963 Levin was invited to appear regularly on BBC TV’s new satirical revue, ‘That Was The Week That Was’. Levin starred with David Frost and the other old warhorses who remained in comedy, unlike Frost who branched off into being a media exec and hobnobbing with American Presidents, as well as presenting ‘Through The Keyhole’.

In 1966 BBC TV screened a new musical quiz, ‘Face the Music’ which ran intermittently until 1984. Levin was a frequent panel member along with, among others, David Attenborough and Robin Ray.

Levin published his first book in 1970. Called The Pendulum Yearsits subtitle, Britain and the Sixties, summed up its subject. In 22 self-contained chapters, Levin considered various aspects of British life during the decade. Among his topics were prominent people including Harold Macmillan and Harold Wilson and institutions such as the monarchy, the churches and the British Empire in its last days. Among the individual events examined in the book were the 1968 student riots  and the prosecution of the publishers of Lady Chatterley’s Lover.

In June 1970, during the General Election campaign, Levin fell out with the proprietors of The Daily Mail, Lord Rothermere and his son Vere Harmsworth. Levin’s contract guaranteed him absolute freedom to write whatever he chose, but Harmsworth, an unswerving Tory, attempted to censor Levin’s support for the Labour Party. Levin resigned, and immediately received offers from The Guardian and The Times to join them as a columnist. In the end, he chose The Times. 

At ‘The Times’, Levin commandeered a desk in the anteroom to the Editor’s office, a location that kept him closely in touch with the daily affairs of the paper. It also gave him ready access to the Editor, William Rees Mogg, with whom he developed a good friendship. 

Within weeks of joining The Times Levin provoked a lawsuit and a strident controversy. The first was in March 1971, in an article titled “Profit and dishonour in Fleet Street”, accusing Rothermere of underhand conduct and personal avarice during the merger of The Daily Mail and The Daily SketchThe libel action brought by Rothermere was settled out of court, at substantial cost to the proprietor of The Times, Lord Thomson. Two months later, controversy followed Levin’s renewed condemnation of Lord Goddard immediately after the latter’s death in May 1971. The legal profession closed ranks and defended Goddard’s reputation against Levin’s attacks. Among those denouncing Levin were Lords Denning, Devlin, Hodson, Parker, Shawcross and Stow Hill. Nonetheless, Levin lived to fight another day…

After Levin’s death The Times published an article opining that information made public since 1971 “strongly supported” his criticisms of Goddard. At the time, the lawyers took revenge on Levin by ensuring that his candidacy for membership of the Garrick was blackballed. Thus Levin was unable to enjoy the company of those regulars in the Garrick, Ronnie Waterhouse, Sir Robin Day and Sir William Mars-Jones. Those three were ready to commit murder to become members of the the Garrick, but Bernard Levin didn’t experience any ill-effects by being barred from the Garrick. I suppose he could always have joined White’s when David Cameron’s father Ian was Chairman, Peter Morrison was a member at that time, as was Carlo. They let pretty much anyone in, even if they were wearing trainers.

 

In 1971, Levin appeared in an edition of ‘Face the Music’, along with a new panellist, Arianna Stassinopoulos (later known as Arianna Huffington). He was 42; she was 21 and they began a relationship developed. Although Levin had rejected Judaism when a youth, he quested after spirituality. With the help of Stassinopoulos he continued to search after spiritual truth. She later wrote, “He tried therapy, he tried Insight, a self-awareness seminar that I had helped to bring to London, he tried a stint in an ashram in India. Lesser souls would have avoided the ridicule that was heaped on him for his spiritual ‘search’ by simply keeping it to himself. But he didn’t, because anything he was touched by he had to write about”. In 1980 Bernard Levin wrote extensive accounts in his column about his visit to the Indian commune of the meditation teacher Osho.

Levin was commissioned by the BBC to visit musical festivals around the world, broadcasting a series of talks about them. Together with Stassinopoulos, he visited festivals in Britain, Ireland, continental Europe and Australia. He later wrote a book, Conducted Tour (1982) on the same subject. By the time it was published he and Stassinopoulos were no longer together. Levin never wanted to marry or be a father. She concluded that she must break away, and moved to New York in 1980.

In 1981 Levin took a sabbatical from The Times after the Digger bought the paper and Harold Evans succeeded Mystic Mogg as editor. Evans and Levin were friends, but Levin had publicly stated his preference that Charles Douglas-Home should be appointed. Within a year Evans and the Digger fell out and Evans left in 1982; Douglas-Home became Editor and coaxed Levin back in October 1982.

By the 1980s, Levin had become a fan of Thatch, but not the rest of her party: “But there is one, and only one, political position that, through all the years and all my changing views and feelings, has never altered, never come into question, never seemed too simple for a complex world. It is my profound and unwavering contempt for the Conservative Party”.

Bernard could have got rid of them if he hadn’t have kept quiet about Peter Morrison, Norman St John Stevas, Dafydd and Lord Wyn Roberts…

Levin made three TV series for Channel 4, screened between 1985 and 1989. The last of the three series was in 1989, A Walk up Fifth Avenue in New York and in this series he met a wide variety of people, including Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Donald Trump. Levin wrote books based on each of the three series, published in 1985, 1987 and 1989 respectively.

Levin was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in the early 1990s. From September 1995 his Times column appeared once weekly instead of twice and in January 1997 the Editor, Peter Stothard, concluded that the weekly column should cease. Levin retired, though he continued to write for the paper occasionally over the next year.

In his last decade, Levin’s partner was the journalist Liz Anderson, who took care of him during the long degenerative phase of his illness. Bernard Levin died in London and at his memorial service, David Frost delivered the eulogy.

Levin was President of the English Association, 1984–85 and Vice-President 1985–88. He was an honorary fellow of the LSE from 1977 and a member of the Order of Polonia Restituta, conferred by the Polish Government-in-Exile in 1976. 

So that was Bernard Levin. He wrote columns about food and travel and other things that aren’t crucial and insulted numerous judges as well as other people. He survived it all and never found himself having to clean the public bogs in Prestatyn in order to make ends meet. I wonder what it was about Dafydd that Levin had knowledge of?

A Message Of Peace At Christmas

Previous posts eg. ‘The Vermin Club’ and ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’ discussed the enormous circle of radicals, political activists, high profile literary figures, psychoanalysts etc who spent much time in south Gwynedd –  or who were friends with those who did – during the middle decades of the 20th century, as a result of the presence of Sir Clough Williams-Ellis who married into the Bloomsbury Group and Bertrand Russell taking up residence in nearby Penthyndeudraeth. The Welsh Bloomsbury Group knew about the presence of Dafydd’s gang in the area – and pre-Dafydd, Gwynne the lobotomist’s gang – but Dafydd and Gwynne provided a service for them, not the local people, so they weren’t in the least bit worried.

One strong link between with current politicians wielding power and Croesor is via the Hobsbawm family. Eric Hobsbawm kept a second home at Croesor for many years. He left the area in the late 1970s, but connections remained. Eric’s daughter Julia spent much of her young life at Croesor, although the family’s main home was in Hampstead. Julia’s best mate from Camden High School for Girls was Sarah, with whom Hobsbawm established a PR company that worked for the Labour Party and trade unions. While working for Hobsbawm Macaulay Communications, Sarah met Gordon, just when Gordon was in need of a wife, him wanting to be PM one day and they married. For a long time the Hobsbawms had a family friend who was the wife of the Chancellor of the Exchequer but they hit the jackpot in 2007 when they found that they were mates with the PM and his wife! It was good news for the Hobsbawms but disastrous for the public services in north Wales because the Hobsbawms were right behind a group of people who had caused very great suffering in north Wales…

 

Croesor was a place of many tales of derring-do because of the numerous very well-known radicals and bohemians who lived there at some point throughout the middle decades of the 20th century. The Croesor-related story that impresses some people the most is of course The Croesor-George Blake Link, which I briefly mentioned in my post ‘O Jones, O Jones’. It was Michael Randle and Pat Pottle, who lived in Croesor for many years, who helped the spy George Blake escape from prison in 1966. In 1991 Randle and Pottle finally stood trial at the Old Bailey for their role in springing Blake from Wormwood Scrubs and smuggling him out of the UK and into the Soviet Union.

George Blake (born George Behar on 11 November 1922) worked as a double agent for the KGB. Blake became a Communist and decided to work for the KGB while a prisoner during the Korean War. Blake’s espionage was discovered in 1961 and after a great deal of ‘How Very Dare You’ from the British establishment, he was sentenced to 42 years in prison after it was alleged that his activities had led to the deaths of many, many agents. George Blake escaped from Wormwood Scrubs in 1966 and fled to the Soviet Union. Blake was not one of the Cambridge Five – or at least the received wisdom states that he wasn’t – although he associated with Donald Maclean and Kim Philby after he  arrived in the Soviet Union.

Blake was born in the Netherlands in 1922, the son of a Protestant Dutch mother and an Egyptian Jewish father who was a naturalised British subject. The family lived a comfortable existence in the Netherlands until Blake’s father’s death in 1936. The 13 year old Blake was sent to live with relatives in Egypt, where he continued his education at the English School in Cairo. When WW II broke out, Blake was back in the Netherlands. In 1940, Germany invaded and quickly defeated the Dutch military. Blake was interned but released because he was only 17. He joined the Dutch resistance as a courier. In 1942, Blake escaped from the Netherlands and he reached London in January 1943. There, he was reunited with his mother and his sisters, who had fled at the start of the war. It was in 1943 that his mother decided to change the family name from Behar to Blake.

Blake joined the Royal Navy as a sub-lieutenant before being recruited by the Secret Intelligence Service, MI6, in 1944. For the rest of the war, Blake was employed in the Dutch Section. In 1946 Blake was posted to Hamburg and put in charge of the interrogation of German U-boat captains. In 1947 the Navy sent Blake to study at Downing College, Cambridge, where his fellow students included Michael MccGwire.

With a biography like this, George Blake would have been party to huge quantities of sensitive information that the British state are still desperately refusing to come clean about, such as whatever it was that Lord Louis Mountbatten did for so long that sent everyone into a blind funk and caused state agents to do anything at all to ensure that it was never openly admitted, even years after his death. See post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’.

MccGwire was a Royal Navy commander who in 1952 joined GCHQ to develop naval intelligence on the Soviet Navy. In 1956-58 MccGwire became a British assistant naval attache in Moscow where he provided military intelligence. As a ‘war planner’, MccGwire worked in the Supreme Allied Commander Atlantic (SACLANT) in the US. MccGwire retired from the Navy in 1967 aged 42 and became a student in International Politics and Economics at Aberystwyth University. While at Aber, MccGwire started and ran the Interstate Journal of International Affairs and published on the Soviet Navy for the UK’s Institute of Strategic Studies. MccGwire spent a year at Aber teaching postgrads.

For much of the 20th century, Abersytwyth churned out law graduates who spent the rest of their professional lives colluding with the organised abuse and criminality in Wales and elsewhere. The institution was also managed by deeply corrupt people who perpetuated this situation. Goronwy Rees, Principal of Aber, 1953-56, was a friend of Guy Burgess and was named as a double agent himself, although Goronwy’s fan club hotly denied that. Goronwy’s brother Geraint was a High Court judge in Wales who knew Ronnie Waterhouse and the gang. MccGwire was at Aberystwyth when Carlo was a student there for a brief time learning Welsh. For further details of corrupt people in high places as Aberystwyth University, see post ‘A Bit More Paleontology’.

 

In 1970 MccGowrie became Professor of Maritime and Strategic Studies at Dalhousie University, Canada, staying there until 1979. He then became a Senior Fellow of the think tank in Washington DC, the Brookings Institute. MccGwire semi-retired in 1990, joining Cambridge University as a visiting Professor for three years on their Global Security Programme. At Cambridge, he continued to argue for an end to nuclear deterrents. In 2006 MccGwire participated in the national debate re the replacement of Trident and after that continued publishing and commenting on world affairs. He died in 2016.

Michael MccGwire was married to Helen, formerly an occupational therapist and author of a children’s storybook. They lived in Dorset and had five children: the writer and adviser to Labour Party figures, Scarlett MccGwire; author/communication consultant Lucinda Neall; CAB adviser Katrina Higham; business publisher Rory MccGwire; and corporate financier Paddy MccGwire. Scarlett has featured in a previous post on this blog and Lucille Hughes has been involved in the senior management of the CAB for a long while.

 

After Cambridge University, George Blake was posted to Seoul, South Korea, arriving in November 1948. Under cover as a Vice-Consul, Blake’s mission was to gather intelligence on Communist North Korea, Communist China and the Soviet Far East. Blake and the other British diplomats were taken prisoner after the Korean War broke out in 1950. While in Korea, Blake became a Communist and volunteered to work for the KGB.

When Blake was asked, “Is there one incident that triggered your decision to effectively change sides?”, he responded, “It was the relentless bombing of small Korean villages by enormous American Flying Fortresses. Women and children and old people, because the young men were in the army. We might have been victims ourselves. It made me feel ashamed of belonging to these overpowering, technically superior countries fighting against what seemed to me defenceless people. I felt I was on the wrong side … that it would be better for humanity if the Communist system prevailed, that it would put an end to war”.

Following his release in 1953, Blake returned to Britain as a hero, landing at RAF Abingdon.

In October 1954, Blake married MI6 secretary Gillian Allan in London. In 1955, he was sent by MI6 to work as a case officer in Berlin, where his task was to recruit Soviet officers as double agents. He informed his KGB contacts of the details of British and American operations, including Operation Gold, in which a tunnel into East Berlin was used to tap telephone lines used by the Soviet military. Until Blake’s treachery was discovered, this operation had been hailed as a resounding success. It is claimed that in the course of nine years Blake betrayed details of some forty MI6 agents to the KGB, destroying most of MI6’s operations in Eastern Europe, although this remains unsubstantiated. Blake later said of this, “I don’t know what I handed over because it was so much”. In 1959 Blake became aware of a CIA mole inside GRU, the foreign military intelligence agency of the Soviet Army and was thus instrumental in exposing P.S. Popov, who was executed in 1960.

In 1961, Blake fell under suspicion after revelations by Polish defector Michael Goleniewski and others. Blake was summoned back to London from Lebanon where he was enrolled at the Middle East Centre for Aranic Studies (MECAS) and arrested on arrival in London. Blake denied that he was ever tortured or blackmailed by the North Koreans and gave his MI6 interrogators a full confession.

The maximum sentence for any one offence under section 1 of the Official Secrets Act 1911 is 14 years, but Blake’s activities were divided into five time periods charged as five offences and, in May 1961 after an in camera trial at the Old Bailey, he was sentenced to a total of 42 years imprisonment by the Lord Chief Justice, Lord Parker. It was the longest sentence (excluding life terms) ever handed down by a British court until in 1986 Nezar Hindawi was sentenced to 45 years for the attempted bombing of an El Al jet.

Hubert Lister Parker, Baron Parker of Waddington (28 May 1900 – 15 September 1972) served as Lord Chief Justice, 1958-71. He went to Rugby (in later years he was Chairman of the Governors) and Trinity College, Cambridge. Following that, Parker was called to the Bar at Lincoln’s Inn in 1924. He became a High Court judge in 1950 and by 1954 was promoted to the Court of Appeal, in which Parker served until 1958. Harold Macmillan appointed Parker as Lord Chief Justice in 1958 and Parker remained in the post until 1971. 

Parker was criticised when he imprisoned the journalists who refused to reveal their sources during the Vassall Tribunal of 1963, the Public Inquiry undertaken by the British Gov’t in the wake of the John Vassall Scandal. Vassall, a civil servant working in the Admiralty, had been revealed in 1962 to be a Soviet spy and considerable criticism had been levelled at the security arrangements that were in place. The Tribunal was established to investigate these claims and determine whether any blame could be laid on officials or ministers. At first, the Inquiry was to be conducted by three senior civil servants. However, before it could begin, letters were discovered in Vassall’s possession from Tam Galbraith, who had been Civil Lord of the Admiralty. See previous posts. Vassall had been Galbraith’s junior Private Secretary; nevertheless some people suggested that it was odd that a minister would communicate by post with an official of his own department and there was considerable speculation of impropriety in the press. Given Vassall’s homosexuality, which had now become known, there were rumours that he and Galbraith were involved with each other and that Galbraith might have shielded him from discovery. The committee of civil servants investigated the correspondence and declared it innocent, but this verdict was not universally accepted. Eventually, the PM, Harold Macmillan, was compelled to open a wider Inquiry, conducted by three jurists. The Inquiry determined that Vassall had not been helped or favoured by any of his seniors.

Like so many other people, John Vassall will have known whatever it was going on in the Royal Navy and the Admiralty at the time that Gov’t was so desperate to keep quiet. Vassall was arrested in 1962 and was subsequently sentenced to 18 years’ imprisonment; he was released in 1972 after 10 years. Vassall was befriended in prison by the social reformer, Lord Longford, who during all that prison visiting and reforming gathered a great deal of information regarding who was witness to Naughtiness In High Places (see post ‘Comedies Of Menace’). Vassall subsequently changed his surname to Phillips, settled in St John’s Wood, London and worked as an administrator at the British Records Association and for a firm of solicitors in Gray’s Inn. He died after suffering a heart attack on a London bus in November 1996, two months before the Waterhouse Inquiry opened: it was not until nearly three weeks later that the press became aware of Vassall’s death. Ronnie Waterhouse lived in St John’s Wood, as did a great many lawyers, judges and politicians who were keeping the lid on the Westminster Paedophile Ring.

Lord Parker’s judgement with regard to the Vassall Tribunal stated in part that “the citizen’s highest duty is to the State”. Unfortunately for people like John Vassall who began dropping like flies as the Waterhouse Inquiry loomed and then got underway, the State was complicit with a bunch of vicious gangsters who were forcing kids and vulnerable people into sex work and bumping them off if they told people what was happening to them. Parker was quoted as saying that the Courts “have a positive responsibility to be the handmaiden of administration rather than its governor”. So who WAS/IS the Guvnor?

However, Lord Parker was popular among the legal profession as he secured improvements in judicial salaries and pensions. Which was an effective way of ensuring a tame judiciary that is the handmaiden of administration rather than its governor.

 

    • Lord Parker was a ‘mild reformer’ who supported legal aid, tried to modernise some judicial procedures and took an active part in Lords debates. He supported moves to abolish the death penalty.

 

On 22 October 1966, George Blake escaped from Wormwood Scrubs with the assistance of three men whom he had met in jail: Sean Bourke, Pat Pottle and Michael Randle, the escape being masterminded by Bourke. Sean Bourke was a petty Irish criminal, Pat and Michael were two anti-nuclear activists who had spent years living in Croesor.

In 1989, Michael Randle and Pat Pottle published their book giving an account of Blake’s escape, along with their rationale for helping him, ‘The Blake Escape: How We Freed George Blake And Why’. When in June 1991 Randle and Pottle stood trial at the Old Bailey for their part in the escape they were no longer living at Croesor. They defended themselves in court, arguing that while they in no way condoned Blake’s espionage activities for either side, they were right to help him because the 42 year sentence that he received was inhuman and hypocritical. Despite a virtual direction from the judge to convict, the jury found them not guilty on all counts.

Their trial attracted a great deal of publicity partly because there was such a high degree of farce involved. The crime had taken place many years before and it was unclear why it was suddenly deemed so important for Randle and Pottle to stand trial. What really attracted attention though were the allegations that the security services themselves had helped Bourke, Randle and Pottle spring Blake. It was also claimed by some that CND had been behind the escape. Randle and Pottle were CND activists but always denied that the escape was a CND act and they also denied that they had been assisted by the security services.

 

Randle and Pottle both served as Secretaries of the Committee of 100,  an anti-war group that was set up in 1960 by Bertrand Russell, Ralph Schoenman and the Rev Michael Scott. Pat Pottle was always referred to by people in north Wales as ‘Bertrand Russell’s Secretary’ rather than the ‘Secretary of the Committee of 100’. Randle was appointed as Secretary when the Committee of 100 was created, but Pottle took over the following year after Randle was jailed for his involvement in an anti-nuclear demonstration; Pottle himself had recently been released from prison after being jailed for his part in organising the demonstration at Wethersfield, of which more details will be provided later in this post. In 1955, Russell leased Plas Penrhyn in Penrhyndeudraeth, some four or five miles from Croesor and in the following year it became his principal residence.

People around Croesor talked to me about Russell, Pottle, Randle and Schoenman, but no-one ever mentioned Michael Scott. A lot of people involved with the activism took a rather dim view of Schoenman, but never explained why.

 

The Rev Guthrie Michael Scott, (30 July 1907 – 14 September 1983), was an Anglican priest and an anti-apartheid activist, who became active in anti-apartheid in South Africa in the 1940s. Scott was born in Sussex on 30 July 1907 and educated at King’s College, Taunton, Chichester Theological College and St Paul’s College, Grahamstown. Scott was ordained by George Bell in 1932, the George Bell who in recent years has been at the centre of a huge row in the Anglican Church regarding allegations that he was a child molester. Scott’s career began with curacies in Slaugham and Kensington. He was Domestic Chaplain to the Bishop of Bombay, 1935-37 and then served at St Paul’s Cathedral, Calcutta. In 1943 Scott moved to Johannesburg where he was Chaplain to the St Alban’s Mission. In 1952, Scott co-founded the Africa Bureau, “an organisation to advise and support Africans who wished to oppose by constitutional means political decisions affecting their lives and futures imposed by alien governments.” He was a leading international promoter of Namibian independence along with Chief Hosea Kutako and Captain Hendrik Samuel Witbooi. For his efforts in the Namibian War of Independence, Scott has a street named after him in Windhoek. He met with Martin Luther King Jr. during Ghana’s celebration of independence.

 

The Committee of 100 was committed to a campaign against nuclear weapons based on non-violent mass civil disobedience. The idea emerged early in 1960 in discussions between Ralph Schoenman, Hugh Brock, April Carter, Uncle Harry’s brother-in-law Ralph Miliband and Stuart Hall, some 23 years before Uncle Harry’s brother-in-law and Stuart Hall began a campaign of mass civil disobedience with the aim of hampering Brown’s career (see previous posts ‘eg. Life In Cold Blood’).

When Bertrand Russell established the Committee of 100, Dafydd and John Allen hadn’t yet gone into business big-style, but there had been organised abuse in north Wales for years; Gwynne the lobotomist ruled supreme and locals who crossed the path of powerful people were destroyed. Bertrand Russell and his mates had nothing to fear, Gwynne and subsequently Dafydd were there to serve the needs of posh powerful people.

 

Schoenman approached Bertrand Russell, the President of CND, with the idea which led to the Committee of 100. Russell resigned from the Presidency of CND in order to form the Committee of 100, which was launched at a meeting in London on 22 October 1960 with a hundred signatures. Russell was elected as President and Michael Randle was appointed Secretary. Russell explained his reasons for setting up the Committee of 100 in an article in the ‘New Statesman’ in February 1961.

Many in CND, including some of its founders, supported the Committee of 100’s campaign of civil disobedience. In 1958 CND had cautiously accepted direct action as a possible method of campaigning; but, largely under the influence of Canon John Collins, CND Chairman, CND’s leadership opposed any sort of unlawful protest. The Committee of 100 was created as a separate organisation partly for that reason and partly because of personal animosity between Collins and Russell. It has been suggested that this separation weakened the campaign against nuclear weapons and research also suggested that during the activities of the Committee of 100, public support for unilateral disarmament decreased, so Bertrand Russell’s campaign seemed to be counter-productive. About as effective as Uncle Harry’s brother-in-law’s and Stuart Hall’s efforts to stop Brown getting a PhD and publishing…

The Crisis being that from the mid- 1980s onwards, Brown and his friends refused to shut up about the vile old lobotomist and his gang who had for years been supplying kids and young people to provide sexual services for Bertrand’s circle…

Bertrand was long dead but there was his legacy and his many friends and family to think about and of course CND and the other Radical Causes with which so many of those who had been and still were involved were also linked to the sexual exploitation of kids and young people, as well as the associated serious organised crime.

Many of the ageing and recently retired social workers of Gwynedd turned out for the Feb 2003 anti-Iraq War march. Never mind the gangsters and the murders of witnesses, there’s the world to save, an organic wholefood diet to follow and an angry letter to ‘The Guardian’ to be written.

Prof Stuart Hall and his mates found themselves with an even greater Crisis to police in 2003 when Merfyn Jones, the then acting VC of Bangor University, gave me a place to do a PhD. The Crisis worsened when Merfyn’s appointment as VC was confirmed in 2004 and then race riots broke out in 2005 when I acquired my PhD. The solution to the serious civil disorder was to Get Merfyn (see post ‘Lest We Forget’). As well as Brown and me of course. I mean Merfyn was from Llanfrothen but his dad wasn’t Bertrand Russell!!!

Information about Plas Penrhyn can be found on the website of ‘Humanist Heritage’. Among other things we are told:

Plas Penrhyn was Bertrand Russell’s home in Penrhyndeudraeth, Wales. Russell had a fondness for Wales and would live there for most of his later years.  The original idea to move to Wales was to provide a suitable place for his grandson’s family to live comfortably.  John, Russell’s grandson, wanted to be a writer and there was little way to support his wife and three children in this manner. Plas Penrhyn was near Duedraeth castle where Russell had stayed before and was near the sea (Penrhyndeudraeth means peninsula with two beaches in Welsh).  Percy Bysshe Shelley also had maintained a cottage in the local area.

It was from this regency manor that Russell would telegram both Khrushchev and Kennedy during the Cuban Missile Crisis, write his biography and live out his later years. In one passage of his biography he describes his first impressions of the house:

We stopped in North Wales where our friends Rupert and Elizabeth Crawshay-Williams had found a house, Plas Penrhyn, that they thought would make a pleasant holiday house for us and the children. It was small and unpretentious, but had a delightful garden and little orchard and a number of fine beech trees. Above all, it had a most lovely view, south to the sea, west to Portmadoc and the Caernarvon hills, and north up the valley of the Glasslyn to Snowdon. I was captivated by it, and particularly pleased that across the valley could be seen the house where Shelley lived. The owner of Plas Penrhyn agreed to let it to us largely, I think, because he, too, is a lover of Shelley and was much taken by my desire to write an essay on ‘Shelley the Tough’ (as opposed to the ‘ineffectual angel’). Later, I met a man at Tan-y-Ralt, Shelley’s house, who said he had been a cannibal…

The Committee of 100’s campaign tactic was to organise sit-down demonstrations, which were not to be undertaken without at least 2,000 volunteers pledging to take part. Many eminent people participated in the sit-downs but few of the 100 signatories took part in the Committee’s activities. Demonstrators were required to adopt a discipline of non-violence and were recommended to remain limp if arrested and to refuse to co-operate in any way until inside the police station.

While I lived in north Wales I met a few people who had been part of the Committee of 100’s demonstrations, some of whom had joined the Committee of 100 at a young age. Merfyn joined while he was still at school and I knew another person who had joined as a school girl who had been arrested and imprisoned as a result of one demo, although she was only 15 yrs old. There was quite a fuss when Holloway discovered that one of their prisoners was a school girl.

I got to know this person better as a result of Brown and me publishing about the problems in the NHS in north Wales. She knew people who were going to England for mental health care because they just could not get any in north Wales and her own father was treated appallingly as a patient in Ysbyty Glan Clwyd. She raised her concerns and was subjected to insults and ridicule from the Angels. This was not a family who could be pathologised as plebs Ignoring Public Health Messages, the elderly man who had the Ysbyty Glan Clwyd Experience was a retired senior Army officer and his daughter was an academic who also worked as a journalist. The family did not publicise what had happened because it was all just so distressing that they wanted to retain their privacy and dignity, which was often why so much gross abuse of patients does not become public. Mark Drakeford knows that most of the families involved in the Tawel Fan scandal at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd never went public on just how bad it all was for the same reason.

The care of the elderly in Ysbyty Glan Clwyd was known to be atrocious and had been for years. It was ignored, even when Prof Clare Wenger, a retired academic from Bangor University and a specialist in the well-being of older people, wrote a report about her own experiences as a patient there and went to the media in 2007. Clare Wenger was denounced by Ysbyty Glan Clwyd as a stuck up old cow and not one person came to her defence in public, although every health and social care specialist at Bangor University, every politician in north Wales and every Top Doctor knew that Clare Wenger was not exaggerating with regard to just how bad the ‘care’ of elderly patients in that hospital was. See previous posts. Sadly, even Clare herself did not flag it up until she got in the neck…

At first, the Committee of 100 differed from CND only in its methods. Within the Committee, however, there were different ideas about civil disobedience, direct action and non-violence. Bertrand Russell saw mass civil disobedience merely as a way of getting publicity for the unilateralist cause. Some members followed Gandhi and they regarded direct action as a way of creating a non-violent society. Ralph Schoenman and others, including the anarchists who later led the organisation, saw direct action as a sort of insurrection that could force the state to give up nuclear weapons. Once that had been achieved, perhaps they could have done the world an even bigger favour and dealt with Gwynne the lobotomist and Dafydd. Nicolas Walter, a prominent member of the Committee, said later that it had been an anarchist organisation from its inception and that the hundred signatories were, in effect, a front.

The Committee’s first act of civil disobedience on 18 February 1961 was a sit-down demonstration at the MoD in Whitehall, London, to coincide with the expected arrival of USS Proteus on the River Clyde. Between 1,000 and 6,000 people took part; there were no arrests. At the next sit-down demonstration, on 29 April 1961 in Parliament Square, the police arrested 826 people. There were also marches and sit-downs against nuclear testing and demonstrations at the US and Soviet embassies in London and at the Polaris submarine base. 

On 17 September 1961, Battle of Britain Day, supporters blocked the pierheads at Holy Loch and the approaches to Trafalgar Square. The September demonstration is regarded as the high-water mark of the Committee of 100. A week before the demonstration, the hundred committee members were summoned to court without charge under the Justices of the Peace Act of 1361, because they “incited members of the public to commit breaches of the peace” and were likely to continue to do so. The court bound them to a promise of good behaviour for 12 months; 32, including Bertrand Russell, then aged 89, refused to be bound over and chose to go to prison instead. It is estimated that 12,000 to 15,000 people attended the demonstration despite the invocation of the Public Order Act, which effectively made it illegal to be in the vicinity of central London that day. Several thousand sat down and there were 1,314 arrests, but no violence from demonstrators despite allegations of police brutality.

The success of the September demonstration encouraged the Committee to move from symbolic sit-down demonstrations in London to mass direct action at the places where nuclear weapons would be deployed and they planned simultaneous demonstrations on 9 December 1961 to walk on to RAF bases at Wethersfield, Ruislip, Brize Norton and Cardiff to sit on the runways and to prevent planes from taking off and street sit-downs in Bristol, Manchester and York.

The official response to the Committee of 100 had escalated from prosecution for incitement to breach of the peace to prosecution for the much more serious offences of conspiracy and incitement to breach the Official Secrets Act. Six organisers, the “Wethersfield Six”, were charged with these offences and five later imprisoned for eighteen months: Ian Dixon, Terry Chandler, Trevor Hatton, Michael Randle, Pat Pottle; and the sixth, Helen Allegranza, to twelve months. Bertrand Russell said that he was equally responsible, but the authorities ignored him and concentrated on the six young, unknown Committee of 100 officers. 3,000 military and civilian police were mobilised at Wethersfield. 5,000 demonstrated there and 850 were arrested. The Wethersfield demonstration was the Committee’s last act of large-scale civil disobedience. There were recriminations within the Committee, one internal memorandum saying that its policies had turned it into “a public spectacle, a group isolated from the general body of public opinion and feeling.” Herbert Read resigned from the Committee, saying that the action was “strategically foolish”. The Committee was weakened by the imprisonment of its officers.

The force used by the police at sit-down demonstrations surprised many of the demonstrators, which, with the Committee’s insistence on nonviolence and the use of pre-emptive arrests for conspiracy, discouraged many and support dwindled. The Committee’s plan to “fill the jails” by means of mass civil disobedience and thus compel the Gov’t to respond to their demands, was frustrated by the authorities imprisoning a few important members and ignoring the rest. Ralph’s brother-in-law Uncle Harry and his colleagues subsequently did ensure that the jails were indeed filled, but with Empowered Service Users rather than anti-nuclear activists. The harsh sentences on the Wethersfield Six “brought home to the Committee its inadequacy when faced with the might of the State,” and some of the Committee’s leaders were not willing to “fill the jails”, mounting strenuous appeals against conviction or, in the case of Pat Pottle, going on the run. Pottle went into hiding in December 1961, when he was wanted by the police after the occupation at Wethersfield. It was only in February 1962, when he appeared at a press conference at Kingsway Hall in London, that Pottle was arrested by Special Branch. He defended himself at his trial and attempted to use the trial as a platform for his political beliefs. Pottle, Randle and  the four other Wethersfield Six defendants were jailed for 18 months.

These days jails are not for peace activists or even serious criminals, they are for Empowered Service Users, who, should they say one word in protest, even when having been obviously framed, will be told by Caring Angels and Top Doctors that they Should Have Thought Of That Before. Fortunately, when Professor Oliver Brooke of St George’s Hospital Medical School Didn’t Think before he assisted in the organisation of a pan-European paedophile ring, his Eminent Colleagues realised that a prison sentence caused Great Suffering for a man like Ollie and at Ollie’s appeal in May 1987, five months after he was imprisoned, Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane received many testimonials and letters of support for Ollie, declared Ollie’s enthusiasm for child porn to be the equivalent of a collection of ‘cigarette cards’ – did packets of fags still come with cigarette cards in 1987??? – and ordered Ollie’s release, although Ollie’s conviction was not overturned. See post ‘Oliver!’.

  • By 1962, half of the original 100 signatories to the Committee of 100 had resigned. The Committee was in debt, faced the failure of its mass civil-disobedience campaign and was dissolved. The campaign was decentralised and thirteen regional committees, each with a hundred members, became responsible for organising demonstrations, with a co-ordinating National Committee. Of the regional committees, the London Committee of 100 was the most active and influential. A national magazine was launched by the London Committee in April 1963. Like CND, the Committee of 100 had begun with a self-appointed and unelected leadership and like CND, it faced pressure for greater participation by supporters. This re-organisation was intended to involve more people in decision making and to spread demonstrations throughout the country; Bertrand Russell opposed this. Well of course he did, because they weren’t Earl Russell, the Nobel Laureate and Very Clever Philosopher.

In March 1962, Russell addressed a sit-down demonstration in Parliament Square against the sentences on the Wethersfield Six. All the 1,172 protesters were arrested, but there was a growing feeling that such demonstrations were becoming an end in themselves and would not now create a mass movement against nuclear weapons. A sit-down of 7,000 outside the Air Ministry planned for the following September had to be called off because of lack of support.

To underline its opposition to Russian nuclear weapons as well as those of the West, the Committee held a demonstration in Red Square, Moscow, at an international congress of the World Peace Council in the summer of 1962, calling for the abolition of all nuclear weapons and attacking the Soviet system.

From 1962 onwards, the Committee became increasingly radical and extended its campaigns to issues other than nuclear weapons. Peter Cardogan, an officer of the Committee, said that it was “trying to go in 12 directions at once”, including campaigning for civil liberties in Greece, against Harold Wilson’s failure to produce a promised Vietnam peace initiative and against siting London’s third airport at Stansted. In 1963 Russell resigned, although he was careful not to denigrate it publicly. Following Russell’s departure, the public image of the Committee deteriorated, many signatories also resigned and “the Committee of 100 ventured even further into the wilderness of libertarian politics”.

Members of the Committee of 100 doubled up as the Spies for Peace and were responsible for the revelations in 1963 regarding the Regional Seats of Gov’t, a network of secret Gov’t bunkers.

The Committee’s interest in Greek politics was sparked by the banning of a march by the Greek “Bertrand Russell Committee of 100” in Easter 1963, by the expulsion of some of the British Committee of 100’s members when they attempted to join the march and by the murder of Grigoris Lambrakis, a Greek MP and peace activist. Plans to protest against the London visit by King Paul and Queen Frederika in July 1963 were met by official attempts to prevent the demonstrations and draconian prison sentences on demonstrators. Macmillan’s Gov’t was criticised in the press for the severity of its treatment of the demonstrators and eventually there were embarrassing climb-downs. Some of the sentences were overturned on appeal and the Home Secretary, Henry Brooke, had to offer financial compensation.

Henry Brooke, as well as members of his family were directly responsible for concealing successive generations of the Westminster Paedophile Ring and of course the crimes of Dafydd’s gang. Brooke was married to Barbara Brooke, the daughter of a Welsh Nonconformist Minister, who became Baroness Barbara Brooke and ruled over swathes of the NHS in London; their son was Peter Brooke, the Cabinet Minister in Thatch’s and then John Major’s Gov’ts. Another son was Sir Henry Brooke, a Lord Justice of Appeal and there were also two daughters who married Top Doctors. See previous posts for details of this unpleasant dynasty.

 

One of the demonstrators criminalised by Henry Brooke et al proved that an offensive weapon had been planted on him and forced a public inquiry that criticised the police and led to the eventual imprisonment of three officers. However, a nine month sentence on Terry Chandler, Secretary of the London Committee, was upheld on appeal. Diana Shelley said that the imprisonment of Chandler, “the force which had driven” the Committee throughout the summer, had a profoundly damaging effect. Four years after these events, following the 1967 military coup in Greece, a “non-violent invasion” of the Greek embassy resulted in prison sentences of up to fifteen months for Committee of 100 demonstrators.

Previous posts have discussed Patient F who was targeted by Dafydd and the gang repeatedly. Their biggest immediate problem with F was that he found out about the abuse of kids in one of the children’s homes in Bangor and challenged the gang about it; he also knew plenty about police corruption and the abuse of psych patients. When younger, F had been a fixture of the art and rock scene in the south east of England and Dafydd was fully aware that F seemed to have info about the deaths of Jimi Hendrix and Brian Jones. F also had a great deal of information on David Hockney, Francis Bacon and Mick Jagger. Dafydd and the gang probably won’t have known this, but MI5 would: when F was young, he and his mates travelled extensively, through Afghanistan, Turkey, Morocco etc and they also went to Greece, where they were held at gun point by soldiers. F and his friends had found an empty building to kip in and there were flags rolled up in there, so they unrolled them and hung them up outside. They were the flags of the previous regime in Greece and the Colonels nearly shot F et al for flying the wrong flag…

The Committee of 100 was wound up in October 1968.

 

Ralph Schoenman (born 1935) is an American left-wing activist who was Personal Secretary to Bertrand Russell and became General Secretary of the Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation. He was involved in a number of projects supported by Russell, but shortly before Russell’s death in 1970, Russell publicly broke with Schoenman.

Born in New York, Schoenman was educated at Princeton University, but left the U.S. for Britain in 1958. He became active in the CND after arriving in Britain, which brought him into contact with Russell, for whom Schoenman began working in 1960. Bernard Levin wrote critically of Schoenman’s influence on the aged Russell, painting Schoenman as partly responsible for Russell’s virulent anti-Americanism, in contrast to his earlier pronouncements against communism. Russell said of Schoenman, “You know he is a rather rash young man, and I have to restrain him.”

In 1963, Schoenman participated as Russell’s Secretary in attempts to mediate a solution for the Sino-Indian border conflict, after China declared a ceasefire the previous year. Schoenman was an organiser and member of the Russell Tribunal, an International War Crimes Tribunal which visited North Vietnam and Cambodia, 1966-67. After making these visits, Schoenman argued in a hearing of the tribunal that the U.S. had committed genocide in Vietnam. During the course of the tribunal, the U.S. Govt revoked Schoenman’s passport because of unauthorised visits to North Vietnam. In November 1967, Schoenman was deported back to the U.S. by Bolivian authorities when he travelled there to attend the trial of Regis Debray. As a result, he was prevented from attending the tribunal’s proceedings in Copenhagen later that month because Danish authorities refused to allow him to enter without a passport. This led to a sequence in which Schoenman shuttled between several European countries, none of which would admit him, before illegally entering Britain, where he remained for 10 days until being deported in June 1968.

Russell publicly repudiated his relationship with Schoenman in December 1969 and had him removed from the Board of the Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation. Schoenman then renamed the American branch of the foundation the American Foundation for Social Justice and continued to promote hearings into alleged US atrocities in Vietnam. Later, Schoenman settled in Princeton, but was again able to travel, visiting Iran during the waning days of the Shah’s Gov’t to raise awareness of the human rights violations of the U.S. backed Gov’t. The new Provisional Revolutionary Gov’t expelled him in March 1979.

Since 2002 Ralph Schoenman has worked with documentary filmmaker, Mya Shone, providing commentary for radio stations in many parts of the United States and Canada and produces the “Taking Aim” radio show, billed as “Uncompromising, fact intensive exposés of the hidden workings of a capitalist system addicted to permanent war”.

Ralph, once you have brought down global capitalism and put an end to permanent war, how about a documentary exposing Dafydd et al, whom you knew all about when you were knocking around north Wales for all that time? My friend wanted to do it in the late 1980s, which is why she was driven out of her job at the Royal Television Society and her husband was forced out of the BBC. Part of your expose could include the activities of Dafydd’s pals at the Walton Centre, in who’s care Merfyn’s wife Nerys died in 2008. After Nerys had divorced Orlando Patterson, the US answer to Stuart Hall she returned from the US and married Merfyn.

Ralph Schoenman got busy with those documentaries in the wake of the Waterhouse Report when people just wouldn’t stop alleging that there had been a huge cover up, the year before Merfyn Jones was appointed acting VC of Bangor University; Merfyn had been effectively performing that role for a while before it was confirmed.

In 2002 I wasn’t an acting VC or anything else, I had been unlawfully forced out of my teaching job by the gwerin and the gang and had been charged with ‘threatening to kill Alun Davies’ on the basis of the perjury of at least eight people, most of them NHS employees. The charges were withdrawn on the first day of the trial, which was repeatedly adjourned so I was on bail until 2004. I then received a letter from the DES telling me that I was under investigation with a view to striking me off the teaching register as a ‘dangerous teacher’. My name was cleared by a junior Minister who was a friend of Merfyn’s; he was then named in the media as a Minister who had let a paedophile remain on the teaching register. See previous posts.

Michael Randle and Pat Pottle met George Blake in Wormwood Scrubs after they had been sentenced to 18 months imprisonment in 1962 for their part in organising the Committee of 100 demo at the USAF base in Wethersfield. Michael Randle also got to chat with John Vassall while he was in the Scrubs.

Michael Randle (second from left) with Bertrand Russell (centre) leading an anti-nuclear march in London, Feb 1961

Born in England in 1933, Michael Randle spent WW II with relatives in Ireland. Active in the peace movement since registering as a conscientious objector to military service in 1951, Randle was a member of the Aldermaston March Committee which organised the first Aldermaston March against British nuclear weapons at Easter 1958. He was Chairman of the Direct Action Committee Against Nuclear War, 1958–61; Secretary of the Committee of 100, 1960–61; and a Council and Executive member of War Resisters’ International, 1960–88, including the Chairman, 1966–73.

In 1959–60, Randle spent a year in Ghana, participating in the Sahara Protest Team against French atomic bomb tests in the Algerian Sahara and helping to organise a pan-African conference in Accra which took place in April 1960. In 1962, he was sentenced for his part in the Wethersfield demo; while Randle was serving that sentence his first son, Sean, was born. In October 1967, Randle was sentenced to 12 months’ imprisonment for participating in an occupation of the Greek Embassy in London following the Colonels’ coup in April of that year.

During his time in the Scrubs, 1962–3, Randle became friends with George Blake. After he escaped from prison, Blake then stayed at ‘safe’ houses around London which were mostly friends of Randle’s and Pottle’s, before he was hidden in a secret compartment in a camper van and Michael Randle drove him to Eastern Europe, with Randle’s children sitting on top of the seat that Blake was hidden underneath to put off any customs officers who might look into the van.

Michael Randle took a keen interest in developments in Eastern Europe. In 1956, he undertook a march from Vienna to Budapest with leaflets expressing support for Hungarian passive resistance to the Soviet occupation, though he was prevented from entering Hungary by Austrian border guards. In 1968, Randle jointly co-ordinated for War Resisters’ International protests in Moscow, Budapest, Sofia and Warsaw against the Soviet-led invasion of Czechoslovakia. In the 1970s and 1980s, he collaborated with the Czech dissident, Jan Kavan, then living in London, smuggling literature and equipment to the democratic opposition in Czechoslovakia.

In 1966, Randle graduated from London University and in 1981 completed an M.Phil in Peace Studies at Bradford University and then a PhD in Peace Studies at Bradford in 1994. There was a trafficking gang operating in the Bradford region with links to Dafydd’s gang, the guest star of which was of course Jimmy Savile, who by 1994 was the manager of Broadmoor Hospital and sexually assaulting patients there. Previous posts eg. ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’, ‘The Banality of Evil’ and ‘Now Then…’ have detailed how from the early summer of 1994, Dafydd and the gang were working very hard to have me constructed as ‘dangerous’ and transferred to an institution like Broadmoor. Their efforts began in earnest immediately after I and Patient F met with two members of the Mental Health Act Commission and raised our concerns about Dafydd sexually exploiting patients and serious complaints about Dafydd and his colleagues not being investigated.

The shenanigans in north Wales were accompanied by a major research fraud committed by two Top Docs at St George’s Hospital Medical School in London, Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain and Malcolm Pearce, for whom I had previously worked as a research assistant, which, had they not been caught, would have seen them established as making medical history and any attempt on my part to publish anything about their wrongdoing or their collusion with Dafydd and the gang in north Wales would have resulted in me being cast as a nutter telling porkies about World Famous Top Docs. There was further wriggling after Chamberlain and Pearce were exposed. Chamberlain, the more senior of the two and a man who was friends with Sir George Pinker, the Royal Gynaecologist who delivered William and Harry, as well as celebs such as Cilla Black, blamed everything on Malcolm and later gave evidence against Malcolm at the GMC hearing in 1995. Malcolm was struck off but what wasn’t made public was that Malcolm was then given a job as a medical negligence expert no less. When I worked at St George’s, 1989-91, I was officially Malcolm’s research assistant, although Chamberlain was Head of Dept. So even after it all blew up in their faces, had I gone public, I would have been known as the research assistant of that terrible man who faked his own research and no doubt Chamberlain would have been happy to confirm that I was a wrong ‘un, not having been publicly disgraced himself. Malcolm wouldn’t have come forward because he had that nice little number as a negligence expert and there’d have been one hell of a row if it had been known.

I don’t know who cooked all this up, but it was well beyond the ken of the St George’s crowd or indeed the Health Secretaries at the time, Virginia Bottomley, a former psychiatric social worker and then Stephen Dorrell, both of whom concealed the criminality at St George’s and in north Wales. See previous posts. The arrangements with regard to Chamberlain and Malcolm involved people at the highest levels of Gov’t as well as the security services. However it did all save the face of the man who since 1976 had been Chancellor of Bangor University and who also had a few other links to this heap of crap.

On 9 June 1994, Matt Arnold, the Head of Bryn Estyn, died of an ‘unspecified blood disease’. On 13 June, the trial of Peter Howarth, Arnold’s long time friend and colleague, for the sexual abuse of boys in his care, opened at Chester Crown Court. Howarth went on trial with Paul Wilson. On 8 July, Howarth was found guilty and sentenced to 10 years in prison; Wilson was acquitted on all charges. Howarth maintained that he’d taken the rap for other abusers who were protected by their Friends in High Places. In April 1997, just after Waterhouse Inquiry had opened, it was briefly suspended because Sir Ronnie suddenly felt like a holiday in Hong Kong, during which time he met up with Derry Irvine, who was either the man who within days would be Lord Chancellor or he was the Lord Chancellor, depending upon the day that Ronnie and Derry bumped into each other. While Ronnie was in Hong Kong, Peter Howarth died in HMP Wakefield from a heart attack. Ronnie had previously worked with Derry and Derry’s two junior barristers, Tony and Cherie!

The Courts, lawyers and judges of the Chester and Wales Circuit were and still are endemically corrupt and have colluded with organised abuse on Wales for decades. In 1990 three Gwynedd County Council social workers and their colleague, an Angel, perjured themselves in Chester Court in an attempt to have me imprisoned for breaching a High Court injunction. It became obvious that they had lied on oath and the case fell apart. There was no investigation. I now have copies of documentation relating to that case and the granting of the injunction just weeks previously. Perjury had been involved in obtaining the injunction. The injunction had been applied for and granted by the High Court in Leeds, although I lived in Bethesda in Gwynedd. Sir John Kay granted the injunction. Leeds falls within the Northern Circuit; barristers and judges on the Northern Circuit were colluding with Jimmy Savile and the Yorkshire gang. Until he made his name by acting for Jeremy Thorpe when Thorpe was tried for conspiracy and threats to kill at the Old Bailey in 1979, George Carman QC worked on the Northern Circuit. Carman was a grade A crook who spent years concealing the Westminster Paedophile Ring and the constituent gangs. Cherie Booth worked in Carman’s Chambers until 1988 and Miranda had been his pupil. Jimmy Savile was said to have ‘held’ Carman in reserve lest any media outlet ever named him as an abuser. Greville Janner retained George Carman when he was interviewed by the police re the abuse of children in care in the early 1990s. In his later years, Carman lived in Wimbledon, as did Geoffrey Chamberlain and many other Top Doctors and staff of St George’s. John Moore, Thatch’s Secretary of State for Social Services, 1987-88 and Secretary of State for Social Security, 1988-89, also lived at Wimbledon and interestingly enough refused to risk his own neck at St George’s in Nov 1987 when he became ill himself. Moore was a instead a patient at the private Parkside Hospital in Wimbledon. This was not surprising; Moore was at the top of the DHSS and knew that the Dept itself and the NHS was in chaos; he also knew that serious organised crime had permeated St George’s Hospital and that a huge trafficking ring was being facilitated by the staff. Ollie Brooke had been released from prison early in the summer of 1987…

When I first arrived to work at St George’s myself in 1989, Parkside Hospital were advertising for part-time lab staff and I showed interest in doing a few hours for them at weekends. When I mentioned this to my new colleagues at St George’s, they became incredibly nasty. The senior technician David Hole started shouting at me and stated that he wouldn’t give me a reference if I applied for a job at Parkside and I gained the impression that Hole was going to ensure that no-one else did either. I was baffled by the complete hostility but I now know that by that time Hole was fully aware that I was refusing to drop my complaints about Dafydd et al who were linked to the ring that Hole’s own colleagues were involved with. Hole was the MSF rep, he was corrupt and he was using his knowledge of the criminal Top Docs to personally benefit. Hole couched his aggression in ‘I hate private medicine’ – well he was an SDP Councillor – but he was working with NHS consultants who were also running Harley Street practices and raking in the dosh. When I found out about John Moore recently I wondered whether Hole and co had been desperate to keep my away from Parkside lest I bumped into a few of the Rich N Famous in Gov’t who were providing the umbrellas for Ollie Brooke et al.

 

Documents in my possession show that the perjury and even much of the rigging of the court cases involving me, including the perjury at Leeds High Court and subsequently in Chester, was organised by Ron Evans, a lawyer employed by Gwynedd County Council, who was communicating directly with Lucille Hughes and NHS managers and staff in north Wales. Ron forged and altered documents in the process. See previous posts eg. ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’. Ron’s wife taught history at Bangor University and also serves as a magistrate in north Wales and their daughter is a lawyer who entered the civil service and by 2011 was employed as Peter Mandelson’s aide.

Gwynedd Social Services came after me – and F – again in 1993. Jackie Brandt, one of the Gwynedd social workers who had perjured herself in 1990, made a statement to the North Wales Police maintaining that I had screamed and yelled at her in Safeways in Bangor, such that she feared imminent attack. I was prosecuted and subsequently tried at Bangor Magistrates Court in the summer of 1993. Brandt got her own name wrong in the witness box, admitted that she had lied to the police and that I hadn’t even spoken to her in Safeways and then started crying, after she had explained to the magistrates that she had Plenty Of Experience In Dealing With Dangerous Clients but I was even worse than all the others. I had to cough up £60 for causing Brandt ‘alarm and distress’. I subsequently wrote to Michael Mansfield QC about this and the abuse of the law by Gwynedd Social Services to harass and silence complainants; I had previously complained about Brandt when she broke the law and unlawfully detained me in Ysbyty Gwynedd. Michael Mansfield wrote a one line reply in response, although he had just published his book ‘Presumed Guilty’ about corruption and abuse within the criminal justice system. Mansfield’s former Chambers colleague is St Helena Kennedy, who was a guest at a do held by Julia Hobsbawm at the Portmeirion Hotel in Gwynedd some years ago; St Helena is a Wimmin’s Champ, but not of those Wimmin who have challenged Dafydd and the gang, probably because she spent years working with Professor Nigel Eastman of St George’s Hospital Medical School, who when he ‘assessed’ me in 1991, just told me to go back to north Wales ‘because they know you there’. Eastman’s colleague Dr Robin Jacobson had told Eastman in writing that Dafydd was sexually abusing patients and that he suspected Dr Tony Francis was as well. Tony’s wife Sadie was a Top Doctor who was also part of the gang in north Wales. Sadie grew up in Yorkshire, where her mum was a Top Doctor – although she preferred to work as an artist – and herself was the daughter of one of the first Wimmin Doctors in Britain.
