Our Man In Llandegfan

Previous posts and comments have emphasised the role of Douglas Hurd in how Criminals Were Getting Away With It for so long. Hurd worked for the security services and is one of many who’s loyalties were misplaced. Or if they weren’t, Hurd is the most ineffective member of the security services who was ever recruited.

The cover story:

Hurd went up to Trinity College, Cambridge in the autumn of 1949. In March 1951 he was approached by an Admiral to be recruited to British Intelligence. Hurd attended a selection panel, but withdrew from the process because, he later wrote, he did not want a career which would have to be pursued in secret.

Douglas DID join up, he remained in Disguise:

Hurd’s brother Julian, who was on the officer training course at Aldershot at the time, committed suicide in June 1951. In his third year at Trinity, Hurd served as Chairman of the Cambridge University Conservative Association for Michaelmas (autumn) Term 1951 and President of the Cambridge Union Society in Easter (summer) Term 1952. Hurd graduated in 1952 and joined the Diplomatic Service Hurd was posted to China, the United States and Italy, before leaving the service in 1966 to enter politics as a member of the Conservative Party.

Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate David Maxwell Fyfe aka Dai Bananas aka Lord Kilmuir served as Home Secretary, Oct 1951-Oct 1954. In 1952, PM Churchill ordered that MI5 should be made answerable to the Home Secretary rather than the PM. Dafydd was sent to Liverpool University School of Medicine by the security services in 1952, to be trained up as Gwynne’s assistant and eventual successor.

1953 was marked by two historic events; Brenda’s Coronation and the conquering of Everest by a team containing Plucky Brits.

The two events are forever linked in the History Of Britain, because the news of the successful ascent of Everest arrived in London on the morning of June 2, bang on in time for Brenda’s Coronation!


The Everest Team Leader was Col Lord John Hunt, a British Army officer who held a very senior role in Intelligence. The Deputy Leader was Sir Charles Evans, a Merseyside neurosurgeon from a family in north Wales but a family sufficiently posh so as not be seen as Welsh by the rest of the region.

Sir Charles was far more interested in mountaineering than he was in being a Top Doc and as a result of him spending more time in the Himalayas than in the operating theatre – yes, he remained employed by the NHS and was paid throughout the years that Evans often said ‘sod this for a game of soldiers, there’s another unconquered peak to scale’ and buggered off once more – he lost operating skill to such a degree that he was prevented from performing neurosurgery and confined to abdominal surgery only. It was gall bladders only for Sir Charles.

I am intrigued to know how many people Evans killed before anyone dared tell him to STOP THAT, you’re just on the Easy Stuff from now on,

See the source image

because Sir Charles was not a man to take orders and he wasn’t that exercised by catastrophes arising from his lack of judgement. This was a man who allowed the University College of which he was Principal to be used as the vehicle for a trafficking ring and Sir Charles even allowed Gwynne the Royal Lobotomist to sit in the Student Health Centre, in spite of the catalogue of disasters and complaints about him.

The official biography of Sir Charles tells us that as his multiple sclerosis progressed – it was the MS that put an end to Sir Charles’s Himalayan adventures – he found that he could no longer stand for the periods of time needed to operate. Thus he gave up surgery and accepted the offer of the post of Principal of UCNW, taking up the appointment in 1958.

Sir Charles did have MS (or at least some sort of progressive neurological condition that eventually resulted in him using a wheelchair), but if he had scaled Everest in 1952, it is unlikely that his MS was so advanced just six years later that he was unable to operate. It would have happened eventually, but not that quickly. I suspect that Evans’s butchery, his long absences from his highly-paid job and his very difficult nature resulted in someone realising that he Had To Go. What the Brain Surgeon And Everest Hero would be very useful for was being installed as Principal of UCNW as Swinging In High Places was reaching truly impressive proportions and needed facilitating and concealing. There had been an embryonic trafficking ring operating in Wales by the 1950s (see post ‘On The Occasion Of The 70th Birthday Of HRH Carlo’) and business rapidly expanded during that decade as a whole series of people were appointed to public and professional roles in north Wales and in Gov’t who would ensure that such a ring would expand rapidly and ruthlessly. See eg. ‘Cymro 007’).

In 1949, the Earl of Merioneth was appointed as Chancellor of UCNW. The Earl is better known as Phil the Greek, who had married Brenda in Nov 1947. Just before the wedding, Phil became the Duke of Edinburgh, the Earl of Merioneth, Baron Greenwich and entitled to insult everyone else, in particular Johnny Foreigner.

Phil, Famed For His Racism in the way that the ‘People’s Friend’ is Famed For It’s Fiction, was born into the Greek and Danish Royal Families. Phil was born on a kitchen table in Greece and his family was kicked out of Greece when Phil was an infant. After being educated in France, Germany and the UK, Phil joined the Royal Navy in 1939, aged 18. From July 1939, Phil began corresponding with the 13-year-old Brenda, whom he had first met in 1934.

After WW II, Phil was granted permission by George VI to marry Brenda. Brenda succeeded George VI as monarch after George VI died. George VI experienced a rapid decline after Welsh Top Doctor Sir Clement Price Thomas and his colleagues – who were known to Gwynne, Sir Charles et al – performed a Successful Operation on the King on 23 Sept 1951, thus Saving The King’s Life and making Clement and his friends famous. See ‘Successful Surgery On King George VI!’

Before the official announcement of their engagement in July 1947, Phil abandoned his Greek and Danish Royal Titles and became a naturalised British subject, at a speed and with a degree of convenience only matched by Zola Budd suddenly finding that she was British in 1984 after the Daily Mail was keen for Zola to avoid the South African sporting boycott in place at the time.

See the source image

Phil adopted the surname Mountbatten from his maternal grandparents. Having Assimilated and successfully passed the British Citizenship test, Phil married Brenda on 20 November 1947.

Phil then elbowed the other competitors off of the track.

See the source image

Phil left active military service when Brenda became Queen in 1952, having reached the rank of  Commander and was formally made a British Prince in 1957, the year before Sir Charles arrived at UCNW.

Sir Charles was all butch and macho but he did have Lady Friends. Sir Charles’s Lady Friends were posh women mountaineers. Charles’s wife Denise Morin was a well-known female climber, the daughter of Nea Morin; Nea was possibly the most famous woman climber that there was between WW I and WW II. Nea married Jean Morin of the famous French climbing family. Denise’s brother Ian Morin also became a well-known climber. Nea died in 1986, the year that Gwynne pegged out. Sir Charles and Denise had three sons who are all enthusiastic climbers.

When Sir Charles was a Nice Young Doctor, he shared accommodation in Liverpool with Anne McCandless, a Nice Young Lady Doctor who was also a climber. McCandless was from a wealthy US family and was as famous for her rude insulting behaviour as Phil was for his racism. McCandless was a paediatrician who worked in the North West of England. Like Sir Charles, Anne McCandless found herself working with a lot of people who were abusing kids or vulnerable people yet this never concerned her.

See the source image

See previous posts for info on Anne McCandless.

From what I can work out, Sir Charles and Anne shared accommodation when they were not married to each other in an era when that often scandalised the polite middle classes. I imagine that Charles and Anne did not give a stuff about this and I’d be interested to know if they were challenged re their Unacceptable Conduct, only to machine gun their critics down. If they did I’d find it admirable in the way that their climbing adventures were, but those two really were not cut out to be Top Docs. They were Posh Mountaineers who did a bit of Doctoring as a hobby and it had very negative consequences for a great many people, but not of course for them.

As the Principal of UCNW, 1958-84, Sir Charles’s bedside manner caused as many difficulties as it did when he had worked as a Top Doctor. The last decade of Sir Charles’s term at UCNW was blighted by student protests, scandals, demands that Evans Must Go and for a Public Inquiry into his mismanagement of UCNW.

Despite all the uproar, Sir Charles and all those who sailed in him of course remained very influential in the climbing and outdoor activities world. Sir Charles was a member of the Management Committee of the National Mountaineering Centre at Plas y Brenin, 1958-78. Plas y Brenin is one of most highly regarded such centres in Europe and many of the instructors at Plas y Brenin alternate their time at Plas y Brenin with time instructing in the Alps or elsewhere .

Sir Charles the Everest Hero kept the Gang out of prison but the Gang being what it is, they turned on him and he finally stepped down as Principal in 1984 (see ‘Meet The Gwerin!’). I have only very recently been made aware that Sir Charles finally threw in the towel in the spring of 1984 because of Brown and I refusing to withdraw our complaint about his Evans’s pal Gwynne the Royal Lobotomist, who was sitting in the Student Health Centre. Sir Charles would have gone soon anyway, but we were the factor that shoved him over the edge.

In 1976, Carlo succeeded Phil the Greek as Chancellor of UCNW.

The Gwerin have a great deal to thank me for, as do a few other people.

I got rid of Charles Evans for them, I saved the bacon of UCNW in the summer of 1984 after the UGC had intended to close the institution and the new Principal Eric Sunderland did a deal with the UGC, Carlo and Thatch to keep UCNW open in return for trashing me and wrecking my career and I was used by the Gwerin to blackmail Thatch and then Major into passing what became the Welsh Language Act 1993….

See previous posts eg. ‘The Cradle Of Filth’ for gen on Lord Wyn ‘Me, Gay??’ Roberts. Lord Wyn grew up near Llandegfan, the son of a local Methodist Minister, but as an older adult Wyn lived in Rowen in Conwy. Sir Charles came from the nearby village of Derwen. Sir Charles served in the RAMC after qualification; Lord Wyn, like Charles’s mate Col John Hunt, was an Intelligence officer. Paula Yates grew up in north Wales and went to Rowen Primary School.

13 days before the Brighton Bomb very nearly killed Thatch. Whoever planted the bomb had Inside Help, it was a major lapse in security. When he was at medical school in the 1950s, Dafydd infiltrated both Irish Republican and Welsh Nationalist activists who were using violent methods, on behalf of the British security services. Assigning that task to a sex offending serious criminal was not a good idea, as Tebbs and his wife discovered. Not that they could do a thing about Dafydd, his mate Lord John Walton was Chairman of the BMA at the time and Tebbs et al who had been injured after they’d been blown sky high didn’t want to be refused all healthcare…

This Tebbs is what happens when you refuse to act against a gang of old paedophiles because you can pick up votes by blackmailing people over their activities… They tried to kill me with an infected blood transfusion at the C&A Hospital in Bangor, you all concealed it and then another part of the network blew you up.

Col Brown was very rude about Band Aid when we were watching them on TV at the Brown’s house at Christmas 1984. We didn’t realise that Sir Charles’s mates were fuming with me and had bugged us.

Douglas Hurd had a direct link to the Heart Of Darkness that was the Dept of Plant Biology at UCNW; he was the nephew of Prof Edred Henry Corner, a Cambridge botanist who knew Prof Peter Greig-Smith, who ruled the roost in the Dept of Plant Biology for decades. Greig-Smith lived at Llandegfan on Anglesey, which is where I lived, 1983-86.

See the source image

Greig-Smith was a dreadful old bugger, but he invented the discipline of quantitative ecology and he was the reason for UCNW’s high standing in ecology for so many years.

Greig-Smith elicited much jealousy and resentment when he accepted a golden handshake from UCNW in 1984 after Thatch encouraged retirements in academia to Cut That Flabby University Sector Down To Size. Greig-Smith bagged a lump sum, a generous pension as well as Emeritus status and facilities at UCNW to pursue the research that he wanted on his own terms. I have been told that Grieg-Smith’s Cushy Number was one of the many deals thrashed out by UCNW for staff in return for my career being trashed. The order to do the dirty work re that task was given to my tutor while I was at UCNW, a former corrupt Home Office forensic scientist Adrian Bell.

UCNW’s continued existence after WW III erupted following my complaint about Gwynne was a piece of cake really, because since the 1981 UGC promise to close UCNW down when they next assessed to whom to give dosh in 1984, by the 1984 UGC visit, Lord Edward Boyle (see previous posts) had been replaced as Chairman of the UGC by Sir Peter Swinnerton-Dyer, a Trinity College, Cambridge mathematician, who’s career is discussed in previous posts. I’m not sure when S-Dyer was appointed, but it was a gift for UCNW. S-Dyer had when younger taught a man who in 1984 was the AUT rep for UCNW. Not only that, but that AUT rep knew that S-Dyer used to aggressively sexually proposition the male undergrads at Cambridge and he had been propositioned by S-Dyer himself. This AUT rep was the son of a Top Doc who had worked at the C&A Hospital in Bangor and was part of Gwynne and Dafydd’s network. He also assured his colleagues that Carlo, when at Trinity College, Cambridge, had been ‘AC/DC’. See eg. ‘Mr Fawlty, I No Want To Work Here Anymore’.

This AUT rep lived in Llandegfan, a just down the lane from me, but I didn’t know him at the time. He lived in a house that had been built and sold to him by my landlord, Dr Gwilym Parry-Jones, who was working as an academic in Saudi, at the University of Petroleum and Minerals.

Sir Peter Morrison, child molester, user of the services provided by Dafydd and Gwynne, Tory MP for Chester and Minister of State for Energy with responsibility for Oil, 11 June 1987-23 July 1990, was then appointed as Thatch’s PPS:

Sir Peter’s sister, Dame Mary Morrison, was Woman-of-the-Bedchamber to Brenda for decades, including when her brother was holding sex parties with boys in care.

Before Gwilym worked in Saudi, he had been a lecturer in Physics at UCNW. Gwilym grew up in Llandegfan.

Who was seething with envy at Grieg-Smith’s life in clover? One Adrian Bell, who lived at er Llandegfan and had asked me who my landlord was… But then Adrian Bell was also very envious of Dr D.G.E. Wood’s riches and was angered by Wood’s wife’s frequent absences from work – Chris Wood being a lecturer in Plant Biology – on the back of flimsy excuses and obvious lies.

D.G.E. Wood and his wife lived in Llandegfan.

When UCNW made Greig-Smith an offer of a Cushy Number that he couldn’t refuse, Dafydd and Gwynne’s mate Sir William Mars-Jones was President of UCNW. Mars-Jones was a High Court judge based in London who also took on work on the Chester and Wales Circuit, a ‘farmer’s son’ who grew up near Denbigh. The Mars-Jones’s were, by Denbigh standards, an affluent and powerful family and had run the region for years. Mars-Jones’s own father Henry had been at one time the  on Denbighshire County Council; William Mars-Jones stood as the Labour candidate for Denbigh in 1945. The Mars-Jones’s had concealed Gwynne’s crimes since Gwynne’s arrival as a Top Doc at Denbigh.

After I complained about Dafydd and the Gang after Dafydd unlawfully imprisoned me in 1986-87, then threatened and tried to bribe me, William Mars-Jones’s sister-in-law Dilys was inappropriately (and probably unlawfully) CC’d into correspondence about me written by senior staff of Clwyd Health Authority. Dilys was a stalwart of the local Methodist Church, a Conwy County Councillor, a JP and other things besides. Dilys’s husband David was a farmer and businessman near Denbigh, a prominent Freemason in north Wales, a Councillor and served as Mayor of Colwyn in 1976. See previous posts…

Dilys and David had children and grandchildren and the Mars-Jones family business in north Wales is now substantial.

William Mars-Jones worked for the security services and as allegations began to swirl that the security services, Freemasons and High Society were concealing something dreadful at Denbigh and a possible VIP paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire,

M-J presided over the 1978 ‘ABC trial’, allegedly involving members of the security services taking liberties. M-J made much of declaring that he wouldn’t be taking any nonsense from MI5 and he supposedly ruled against them. I suspect that the trial was a set-up to take the heat off of M-J. The ABC trial was swathed in secrecy, hence the title; no-one knew who A,B and C were…

All anyone knew was that M-J had Stopped MI5 Getting Their Own Way in the year in which Mr Thrope was charged, Mary Wynch was in hiding from the Gang before they found and unlawfully imprisoned her and Callaghan’s Gov’t were in such a mess that it was considered a major political and economic crisis.

Douglas and Dafydd were quaking in their boots when their mate Mars-Jones dealt with the security services.

M-J was also called upon to Take No Nonsense from the Gang when two high profile cases of the abuse of children in care in Clwyd occurred in quick succession in DATE. M-J Demanded That Clwyd County Council Held An Inquiry. My post ‘          ‘ discussed how so many lies were told by so many people that the situation as presented by Clwyd County Council, the Courts and M-J was open to other interpretations and great pressure had been applied to vulnerable people to get them to give ‘evidence’. One alleged abuser, NAME, was a female carer who was terrified, close to a nervous breakdown and admitted to anything in order to get out of the nightmare; another one of the accused, NAME, had some years previously been targeted by his colleagues at Bryn Estyn because he had come out as gay. The person who elicited the most Shock and Disgust was, surprise, surprise, not employed by Clwyd County Council; he was NAME, a former kid from Bryn Estyn who had not long before left the ‘care’ of Clwyd Social Services. He received a prison sentence for his part in the ‘abuse’. NAME was found dead on DATE, having ‘committed suicide’.

DATES – CORRELATE with my case

Bryn Estyn, the children’s home near Wrexham which was the centre of the most serious complains of the abuse of kids re Clwyd County Council closed in Sept 1984. I have only recently learnt that as with the departure of Sir Charles Evans, Bryn Estyn was closed because of Brown and I making representation about Gwynne to the authorities at UCNW and the GMC. Sadly, in the way that Sir Charles was replaced by a fellow member of the Gang’s partner ring from the North East ie. Prof Eric Sunderland, a PVC at Durham University – Sunderland had grown up in Carmarthenshire and was an alumnus of Aberystwyth University, before spending much of his career at Durham – Bryn Estyn closed but staff and residents were simply transferred to other children’s homes in the Wrexham area, run by Clwyd County Council, where business continued as usual, as discussed in previous posts.

Organised abuse had existed in north Wales for generations, but the party really got going when in 1973, Matt Arnold was appointed as Head of Bryn Estyn. Matt had previously been Head of Axwell Park Approved School in Gateshead and was part of the Gang’s partner ring facilitated by Lord John Walton, Eric Sunderland et al…Within months of taking the helm at Bryn Estyn, Arnold had appointed his friend and colleague from Axwell Park, Peter Howarth, to a post at Bryn Estyn…

UCNW trained social workers and employed social work lecturers who worked/had worked in the children’s homes in north Wales and they did know what was happening to those kids; some of them were abusing the kids themselves. UCNW trained clinical psychologists – the Dept of Psychology was ruled over by Dafydd until 1987 – who worked at Denbigh or at the very least completed placements there as part of their training. Prof Bob Woods, the UCNW academic responsible for the clin psy course, had worked at Newcastle before he arrived at UCNW. Dr Neil Davies, a psychiatrist who was Dafydd’s partner in crime at Denbigh, had qualified at Cambridge, then spent a few years working in Newcastle, before relocating to Denbigh…

Numerous kids in care from the North East were sent to children’s homes in north Wales; complaints of serious abuse were ignored. Brian Roycroft, who was appointed Director of Newcastle Social Services in 1970, recommended children’s homes in north Wales to other Directors of Social Services in the North East. Roycroft had spent part of his childhood living in the ‘village’ run by the NCH (National Children’s Home) in Frodsham, Cheshire, not because he was in care but because his parents worked there as houseparents and they lived in… Roycroft and his parents knew Gwynne and Denbigh.

On 17 Jan 1990 Thatch delivered the inaugural George Thomas Society Lecture at the NCH. Many involved in the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal had worked for the NCH, including Glanville Owen, Lucille Hughes’s Deputy Director at Gwynedd Social Services for years. Glanville told Ronnie Waterhouse at the Inquiry that although he was responsible for the management of children’s care services and the staffing of those services in Gwynedd, the paedophile ring under his nose was nuzzing to do with him. Glanville explained to Ronnie that he never expected to work again. Once the Inquiry was over, Glanville was appointed as Chief Exec of Gwynedd Community Health Council, in which role Glanville lied to me repeatedly and failed to investigate my complaint about the Hergest Unit even when I produced evidence of serious crime. Glanville was still on the North Wales CHC as recently as 2012. See ‘I Know Nuzzing…’ Glanville won’t have gone away, even now.

The George Thomas Society was founded by the NCH for the purposes of tackling child abuse. In was in Feb 1990 that Gwynedd County Council obtained an injunction against me from Sir John Kay at the High Court in Leeds, on the basis of the perjury of two Gwynedd social workers, Keith Fearns and Jackie Brandt. Fearns had never met me and Brandt I had met at most two or three times; Brandt had unlawfully detained me in the psych ward of Ysbyty Gwynedd in the very late summer of 1986.

Brandt and Lucille Hughes refused to answer any questions at all let alone investigate my complaint. When I rang Brandt at her office after my initial letter of complaint was ignored, Brandt simply said ‘Your letter was unsolicited mail and I don’t answer unsolicited mail’ and put the phone down on me. The unsolicited mail was a formal letter detailing the circumstances of an unlawful detention and the associated crime, including threats of physical violence from an Angel and me being shut in a room of with Dafydd who had Talked Sex to me and when I challenged him told me to get out of north Wales and not come back or he’d have me arrested. I wrote Brandt another letter taking the piss out of her constructing a complaint about an unlawful imprisonment and other criminal matters as ‘unsolicited mail’. I was met with a visit from the police and a Warning.

I persisted in trying to get answers and was met by that ex-parte injunction of Feb 1990 that prevented me from writing any further letters to any member of staff of Gwynedd Social Services for any reason, on the grounds that I was Dangerous and a Physical Threat to the safety of Brandt and her colleagues in the Arfon Community Mental Health Team, none of whom I had met.

Westminster molester George Thomas used the services provided by and provided an umbrella for Dafydd and the Gang.

During Thatch’s lecture she praised George Thomas and the work of the NCH. George Thomas was the Patron of NCH, an organisation that was established by Methodists. One of the Churchill Ladies was also a figurehead for the NCH. The NCH seems to have been plagued by organised abuse for a very long time.

When Thatch gave her lecture to the George Thomas Society and I was served with the High Court injunction in 1990, I was working at St George’s Hospital Medical School, in a team led by Prof Geoffrey Chamberlain, who along with his colleagues was facilitating organised abuse. Chamberlain grew up and went to school in south Wales, his dad had been Secretary to the Lord Mayor of Cardiff and the Chamberlains were a Labour Party supporting family.

It was so obviously a ring led by Gwynne and Lord Joh

Now here’s some Brand New History Relating To Gwynne that I have discovered from ‘One Doctor’s Odyssey’ the autobiography of Sir Donald Acheson, who was UK Gov’t Chief Medical Officer, 1983-91. Donald has starred frequently on this blog as one of those who protected Dafydd and Gwynne himself and those who sailed in them.

Donald was responsible for the Chief Fanny Inspector (London area):

and the Chief Fanny Inspector (Wales Region):

Image result for dr christine evans images

The Chief Fanny Inspector (Wales Region) also undertook supplementary duties with regard to Inspection Of Male Parts and Overseas Work. See post ‘A Charming, Uplifting Sound…’

Donald Acheson’s dad was a Top Doc in Belfast who worked for the Civil Service (Ministry of Pensions) and Donald studied at Gwynne’s alma mater, the Middlesex Hospital, but some 10 years after Gwynne. Donald’s path at the Middlesex probably coincided with that of Lord Snowdon’s close friend and best man Roger Gilliatt – Roger was a close friend of Mr Thrope as well – who became a well-known neurologist. Gilliatt’s dad Sir William Gilliatt was the Royal Doc who delivered Carlo and Princess Anne and Sir William taught both Gwynne and his own son at the Middlesex, as discussed previously and he’d have taught Acheson. Roger Gilliatt’s mum was a Top Doc of Viennese origin.

Just when I was wondering who at the Middlesex inspired Gwynne (and Roger Gilliatt) in the ways of neurology and lobotomising the victims of VIP sex offenders, I found out about Sir Douglas ‘Crackers’ McAlpine, Senior Neurologist at the Middlesex, from Acheson’s book.

Archibald Douglas McAlpine (19 August 1890-4 February 1981) pioneered research into multiple sclerosis. McAlpine was born in Garscadden, Glasgow, the only son and eldest of three children of civil engineering contractor Sir Robert McAlpine, 1st Baronet (1847–1934) and his second wife Florence Margaret Palmer (1850–1910).

Douglas’s sister Roberta married Richard Lloyd George the son of PM David Lloyd George by his first wife, Margaret Owen. Richard Lloyd George was educated at Portmadoc School and Christ’s College, Cambridge, graduating in 1910. Richard served in WW I and was commissioned into the Royal Engineers.  Richard became an associate member of the Institution of Civil Engineers and served in the British Army again during WW II.

Richard Lloyd George was the brother of Lady Megan Lloyd-George, who served as the Liberal MP for Anglesey, 1929-51 and then the Labour MP for Carmarthen, 1957-66. Lady Megan defected to the Labour Party in 1955 and died in office on 14 May 1966. The by-election as a result of Lady Megan’s death was won by Gwynfor Evans, who made history as the first Plaid MP to be elected. Gwynfor’s election is always spoken of by Plaid as being substantially the result of the fury in parts of Wales over the flooding of Capel Celyn to create the Tryweryn reservoir to supply water for Liverpool. It was during the anti-Tryweryn campaign in the 1950s that Dafydd as a Liverpool med student infiltrated Irish activist groups, supposedly to learn violent activist techniques to assist with the Tryweryn campaign.

Richard and Roberta Lloyd-George had two children, Valerie Davidia (1918–2000) and Owen (1924–2010), before being divorced in 1933. In 1935 Richard Lloyd George married secondly Winifred Emily Peedle. Valerie became the wife of Sir Goronwy Daniel.

Sir Goronwy Hopkin Daniel, (21 March 1914-17 January 2003) was born at Ystradgynlais, Powys and educated at Pontardawe Grammar School, Amman Valley County School and University of Wales, Aberystwyth.

Eric Sunderland grew up in Amman Valley and then went to Aberystwyth, but some years after Goronwy…

Goronwy Daniel obtained a D.Phil. from Jesus College, Oxford, being at Jesus College Oxford either at the same time as Harold Wilson, or just after Wilson had graduated. Either way, Goronwy knew Wilson. Goronwy joined the Civil Service in 1943, rising to Chief Statistician in the Ministry of Fuel and Power and eventually to Permanent Under-Secretary at the Welsh Office when it was set up in 1964, Goronwy remaining in post until 1969.

Thus Daniel was at the top of the Welsh Office while Wilson’s stooge Jim Griffiths was Welsh Secretary, then the Windbag’s friend Lord Cledwyn Hughes, Labour MP for Anglesey, 1951-79, who was succeeded as Welsh Secretary by George Thomas. See ‘The Cradle Of Filth’. George Thomas served as Minister in the Welsh Office under Cledwyn, so George was molesting away for years when Goronwy was at the top of the Welsh Office mandarins. Gwynne and Dafydd were busy too and it was on Goronwy’s watch that it was agreed that responsibility for Health and Social Services in Wales should be transferred to the Welsh Office.

The Ely Hospital Scandal blew up when Goronwy was running the Welsh Office. The Ely Scandal severely embarrassed Wilson’s Gov’t because the serious abuse of patients at Ely had been previously brought to the attention of the Welsh Hospitals Board responsible for running Ely Hospital (as well as Denbigh), one member of which was George Thomas. Lord Gwilym Prys-Davies (see previous posts) was another Welsh Hospitals Board member; he grew up and lived in Merioneth in north Wales and, like George Thomas, was a pal of Dafydd and Gwynne.

Wilson’s DHSS Secretary Richard Crossman – Crossman, like Wilson, had passed through New College, Oxford, a recruiting ground for the British security services – lied to the House about Ely, maintaining that the Gov’t Knew Nuzzing about the abuse of the patients, although Crossman was told that violence towards patients was witnessed on an Inspection visit to Ely and the Gov’t Chief Nursing Officer had been told about it. In their defence, Ely staff and managers claimed that things were much worse at Denbigh and no-one was complaining about that.

Crossman ordered an Inquiry into Ely, to be Chaired by Ronnie Waterhouse’s close friend Geoffrey Howe, who was at the time not in the Commons, but employed in his day job as a bent lawyer on the Wales and Chester Circuit. Howe grew up in south Wales, although he went to boarding schools in England; Howe’s father was a solicitor and coroner and very likely on board with the Ancients re organised abuse and the associated criminality himself. Howe concealed the worst at Ely. The usual techniques were employed, including describing the ‘nurses’ as ‘old-fashioned’; the Angels at Ely battered patients, hosed them down naked in cold water outside, stole from them and they will have sexually abused them as well but that wasn’t discussed. The member of staff who blew the whistle on the Ely Scandal was trashed, being an ancillary worker and a Black Man. It was stressed that the Black Man was Unqualified, in no position to Judge Matron and that his English left much to be desired.

Although it was admitted that the Black Man had not lied about any incident.

The Rev Bob Morgan, the father of the Baroness of Ely, was friends with George Thomas and was a social worker before he became the Rev Bob. The Rev Bob and many known to him knew what was happening to the patients at Ely Hospital.

Julia Gillard’s dad worked as an Angel in a psych hospital in south Wales until the Gillards emigrated to Oz in 1966; I don’t know if Mr Gillard worked at Ely, but he will have known what was going on there, everybody did. Mrs Gillard worked in a Salvation Army nursing home, so events down the road won’t have escaped the notice of the Gillards.

Julia Flew In the other day and met Mark Drakeford, the FM of Wales for a chat. Drakeford used to work as a social worker in Ely.

Julia is a lawyer, who graduated with a degree in law from the University of Melbourne in 1986 and a BA in 1989. In 1987, Julia joined the law firm Slater & Gordon in Werribee, Victoria. In 1990, Julia became a partner with Slater & Gordon; at the age of 29, Julia was the youngest partner within the firm and one of the first women to hold the position.

Here’s Jenni with her two Inspirational lapdogs, Hillary and Julia:

Slater and Gordon are an international firm and they are currently representing survivors at the IICSA. Slater and Gordon are the firm who took over Walker Smith Way, the lawyers in Chester and Wrexham who were acting for me against the Gang. The take-over happened while I was unlawfully detained in successive psych units for approx. one year. I wasn’t told by Walker Smith Way that they would be disappearing and when I contacted Slater and Gordon for copies of my files, I was told the hard copies had all been destroyed. Without my knowledge, let alone consent. I mentioned that this was rather seriously illegal and Slater and Gordon testily told me that the files had been digitised and they could retrieve them for me but I’d have to bloody well wait until they were good and ready. They did retrieve them for me eventually, but all documentation relating to certain crucial High Court cases – including in 1990 and 91 – which were the hub of even greater wrongdoing than usual

was not retrieved. Slater and Gordon have refused to have another go at retrieving any more files. I have no idea at what point the most explosive of the dynamite was removed from my files.

Julia Gillard resigned from Slater and Gordon in 1996 – the year that The Hague announced the Waterhouse Inquiry –

to serve as Chief of Staff to John Brumby, at that time the Leader of the Opposition in Victoria.

Julia has cited Nye as one of her political heroes. I expect that Barbara Castle is your other one isn’t she Julia? Nye and Babs are obligatory for Wimmin in Labour Parties to have as heroes. I hate both of them Julia, they were a pair of greedy hypocrites who knew that Gwynne was lobotomising people who refused to have sex to order and was running a paedophile ring… Dafydd was still keeping people in the Denbigh Dungeon when Julia joined Slater and Gordon and became Inspirational.

Julia has been on the Board of the mental health organisation Beyond Blue since December 2014, its Chair since July 2017 and was made an Honorary Fellow of Aberystwyth University in June 2015. Julia has also served as the Chairwoman of the Global Partnership for Education since February 2014.


John Allen took out the lease on what would become the Bryn Alyn Community in 1968. In 1969 Goronwy Daniel returned to Aberystwyth to become Principal of the University College of Wales and was knighted the same year.

Goronwy held the post of Principal of Aber for ten years. In 1977 Goronwy was appointed a Lieutenant of Dyfed. In 1982 he was appointed Chairman of the S4C Authority, having been one of the prime movers in its creation. When Thatch renegaded on her promise of a Welsh fourth channel, Goronwy, Gwilym Williams (the Archbishop of Wales and Bishop of Bangor – who was at Jesus College, Oxford, with Goronwy and Harold Wilson) and the Rev Alwyn Roberts (a PVC at UNCW and Gwynedd County Councillor) paid a visit to Willie Whitelaw and reminded him of a few matters, including Gwynne, Dafydd and Peter Morrison, and Thatch soon changed her mind. I have been told that Willie and Thatch were reminded that I had just entered UCNW as well and the Gang were already in pursuit of me (and Brown).

Goronwy is discussed further in previous posts.

On 1 January 1945 David Lloyd George, the former PM, was created Earl Lloyd-George of Dwyfor, his son Richard becoming Viscount Gwynedd. Less than three months later, on 26 March 1945, David Lloyd George died from cancer and Richard inherited his peerage, becoming the first member of the family to sit in the Lords, because David Lloyd George had been too ill to do so.

Richard’s siblings were:

  • Mair Eluned (1890–1907)
  • Olwen Elizabeth, Lady Carey Evans (3 April 1892-2 March 1990); she married Major Sir Thomas John Carey Evans (died 25 August 1947) in 1917 at London’s Welsh Baptist Chapel. She was the grandmother of Margaret MacMillan and great-grandmother of historian Dan Snow. In 2010, Dan married Lady Edwina, the daughter of Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor aka the 6th Duke of Westminster, a close friend of Carlo and with the Gang.
  • Gwilym, later 1st Viscount Tenby (1894–1967)
  • Megan Lloyd George (1902–1966)

Richard and Roberta Lloyd George’s son was Owen Lloyd George, 3rd Earl Lloyd-George of Dwyfor. Owen was educated at Oundle School, but left before his 17th birthday to be apprenticed as a civil engineer to Sir Alfred McAlpine, 3rd Baronet. Previous posts have discussed how many of Dafydd and Gwynne’s network were educated at Oundle; it seems to have stemmed from one of Bertrand Russell’s friends being the Head of the Oundle who taught Sir Clough Williams-Ellis when he was at Oundle and it sort of continued from there.

In 1942, Owen Lloyd-George was commissioned into the Welsh Guards. In WW II he fought with the 3rd Battalion in Italy, 1944-45. After WW II, Owen served with the 2nd Battalion in Germany.

See the source image

On the death of his grandfather in March 1945, Owen Lloyd-George experienced an imaginative gesture on the part of the PM Winston Churchill, who determined that all four of his old friend’s grandsons in the services should be brought home to attend the funeral in north Wales. One grandson was firing his guns across the Rhine, another was flying a bomber, a third was serving in HMS Enterprise in the North Sea and the fourth, Owen, was fighting in Italy. Owen was at once dispatched to Naples by fighter plane, given a bed in Field Marshal Alexander‘s villa, flown by bomber to England the next morning, whisked up to north Wales in a Spitfire (flown by a Polish pilot with a schoolboy atlas and no knowledge of Wales) and delivered at Llanystumdwy one hour before the funeral.

On the death of his father on 1 May 1968 Owen succeeded as Earl Lloyd-George of Dwyfor and became an active member in the Lords. Owen held the office of Deputy Lieutenant of Dyfed in 1993.

Owen Lloyd-George married first Ruth Margaret Coit (died 16 May 2003) on 8 September 1949, but they divorced in 1982. With Coit, Owen had two sons and one daughter:

  1. David Richard Owen Lloyd George, 4th Earl Lloyd-George of Dwyfor (born 22 January 1951)
  2. Hon. Robert John Daniel Lloyd George (born 13 August 1952)
  3. Lady Julia Margaret Violet Lloyd George

Owen Lloyd-George married secondly in 1982 to (Cecily) Josephine, Countess of Woolton (1925-2012), daughter of Sir Alexander Penrose Gordon-Cumming, 5th Baronet and Elizabeth, Countess Cawdor. It was her third marriage and her third to a peer.

  • Owen Lloyd-George carried the Sword at the Investiture of Carlo at Caernarfon in 1969.
  • Owen did not acquire a home in Wales until he was 63, when he bought Ffynone, a country house built by John Nash in a remote corner of Pembrokeshire.

[That’s enough Lloyd Georges – Ed.]


Douglas McAlpine qualified as a Top Doc from Glasgow in 1913. During WW I Douglas McAlpine served in the RAMC

See the source image

and then as a Surgeon Lieutenant in the Royal Navy. After taking his M.D. in 1923 and working in junior hospital posts, McAlpine was appointed neurologist to the Middlesex Hospital in 1924. McAlpine’s students at the Middlesex Hospital included neurologist Paul Sandifer and of course Gwynne the Royal Lobotomist. Paul Sandifer is discussed in previous posts; he is credited with being the Father Of Paediatric Neurology and colluded with the Westminster Paedophile Ring.

McAlpine served as a Brigadier in the RAMC as an adviser in neurology to the South East Asia Command during  WW II. In 1953, McAlpine was the leading light in the formation of the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Great Britain. His book Multiple Sclerosis (1955) was recognised as the authoritative study of the disorder and was revised and updated in subsequent editions. In 1958, McAlpine was the first to suggest that the Minamata symptoms resembled those of organic mercury poisoning.

After retiring from the NHS, McAlpine worked for the World Health Organization on demyelinating disorders. He was a member and Fellow of Royal College of Physicians, London.

Douglas McAlpine married Elizabeth Meg Sidebottom (d. 1941) in 1917. The marriage produced two children, Robert Douglas Christopher McAlpine (born 14 June 1919), and Florence Mary Scott (born 24 August 1922). Douglas married his second wife Diana Christina Dunscombe Plummer (d. 1981), daughter of Bertram Plummer, on 3 July 1945. The marriage produced one child, Alastair Bertram McAlpine (born 23 Apr 1946).

Gwynne’s mentor Douglas McAlpine had a number of older half-siblings from his father’s first marriage, Douglas’s mum being Sir Robert McAlpine’s second wife. Douglas’s half-siblings were: Robert (1868–1934), William Hepburn (1871–1950), Thomas Malcolm (1877–1967), Alfred David (1881–1944) and Granville (1882–1928) and two daughters, Agnes and Ethel.

Alfred David was Sir Alfred David McAlpine (6 November 1881-25 May 1944), the founder of the construction company Sir Alfred McAlpine & Son. After completing his education, Alfred David served an apprenticeship across the family construction and civil engineering business. Having been appointed to run McAlpine (Midlands) Ltd, which covered the Midlands and Northwest of England, in 1935 following the death of Sir Robert and his eldest son, Alfred ran the company independently. In 1940, it was agreed to formally separate the entities, and so the company name and the Midlands operations were handed back to the former company, while Alfred formed the new Sir Alfred McAlpine & Son. Under a non-compete agreement with its former parent company, Sir Alfred McAlpine confined itself to civil engineering and to the north west of England.

Alfred was appointed High Sheriff of Denbighshire for 1923–24.

In 1907 Alfred married Ethel May Williams; they had one son (Alfred James “Jimmie”) and two daughters (Gladys Gwendoline and Ethel Mary). In 1913, Alfred bought Marchwiel Hall in the village of Marchwiel, Denbighshire. Home to the Marchwiel and Wrexham Cricket Club, Alfred developed it as “one of the most picturesque settings for playing the game in the country”. Already Chairman of the county cricket association, Alfred played cricket for Denbighshire in the 1926/1927 season.

Alfred James “Jimmie” McAlpine (15 June 1908-6 November 1991), usually went by his middle name of James or Jimmie. After leaving Repton School (the seat of learning of a number of the grander members of the Gang’s network as discussed in earlier posts), Jimmie joined the family business Sir Robert McAlpine, under his father who ran operations in North West England. Jimmie became Chairman of the company after the death of his father in 1944.

Under Jimmie’s Chairmanship, Alfred McAlpine floated on the London Stock Exchange in 1958 under the name Marchwiel Holdings, only changing its public name to Alfred McAlpine PLC in 1985. This followed the decision in 1983 to end the non-compete agreement with Robert McAlpine allowing the firm to expand geographically. In 1985, James/Jimmie retired, and handed over Chairmanship of the company to his son Robert James “Bobby” McAlpine.

Jimmie McAlpine was married five times and had four children. He lived at Gerwyn Hall in Marchwiel near Wrexham and played cricket for Denbighshire in the Minor Counties Championship, 1930-35, mostly on the cricket ground at his father’s nearby home.

A noted car collector, Jimmie kept and maintained his large private collection in the various outbuildings of the hall. The collection included example models from: Alvis, Aston Martin, Bentley, Bristol, Bugatti, Jaguar, Jensen and Rolls-Royce. Jimmie and his chauffeur’s preferred mode of transport was a 1934 V12 Hispano-Suiza J12, which was often seen at Wrexham Golf Club where Jimmie was President.

Adrian Bell was a collector of vintage cars.

Gordon Anglesea, the senior North Wales Police Officer who was in 2016 jailed for the historical abuse of boys in care in north Wales, including at Bryn Estyn, used to play at Wrexham Golf Club and boys in care used to act as caddies for Anglesea and other golfers.

Jimmie McAlpine died in hospital at Wrexham on 6 Nov 1991. When Jimmie died, I was an in-patient on the psych ward at Ysbyty Gwynedd. After the Drs Francis had tried to have me imprisoned in April 1991 at the Royal Courts of Justice at The Strand – that is one of the Court cases re which all documentation has disappeared from my files – in autumn 1991, my neighbours rang the Bethesda GPs Surgery telling them that I was ill and surely it wasn’t true that I was being unlawfully refused NHS care. The dreadful Dr John Mithan from Bethesda surgery, who along with all of his colleagues had indeed refused me all NHS care, didn’t dare admit that to my neighbours and neither did Ysbyty Gwynedd. I was admitted to Ysbyty Gwynedd and told by the Drs Francis that the repeated Court cases had all been a dreadful misunderstanding and that peace had now broken out. Sadly it hadn’t, it was yet another Cunning Plan…

Brown came to stay at my place near Bethesda for Christmas 1991 and on his second day at my house he developed a kidney stone. The neighbours who came to my assistance before called the ambulance because I didn’t have a phone at the time. Brown was in so much pain that he could barely move. The ambulance arrived without a stretcher. The ambulancemen refused to help lift or manoeuvre Brown, so my neighbours and I did it, trying to cause Brown as little pain as possible, but he was still in agony. At Ysbyty Gwynedd A&E, Brown was ignored by the doctor on duty for approx. one hour. She didn’t seem to have any other patients of higher priority. When she did come to see Brown, she claimed to have ‘no idea’ what was wrong with him, although he described pain characteristic of a kidney stone. The Top Doc told us that Brown would have to see her colleague, who was in surgery. So we waited. Some two hours later, he arrived and asked Brown to describe the pain. The Top Doc ‘down from surgery’ responded immediately with ‘kidney stone’, ‘give him lots of pethidine and admit him to the ward’ and disappeared.

The female Top Doc on duty did not organise the pethidine, although she did begin the admission. After some 30 mins, Brown, having been in agony now for the best part of 14 hours, asked for the pethidine. The female Top Doc on duty then told an Angel who seemed to feel that she had no authority herself to give Brown a certain quantity of pethidine. It didn’t touch the pain, they refused to give him any more and Brown piddled the kidney stone out the next day on the ward.

Since those events, I have been told that the lack of pain relief or speedy care for Brown was deliberate, certainly on the part of the ambulancemen and the female doctor on duty in A&E, although I’m not sure if the surgeon was part of the sadism.

The female Doc who enjoyed herself so much was Vanessa Poeppinghaus, a friend of D.G.E. Wood. Vanessa’s dad was a GP in Menai Bridge and a friend of Gwynne’s. Vanessa graduated from the Welsh National School of Medicine in 1984 and was Of The Gang. After Vanessa’s father retired, one of the GPs who took over his practice, Dr Shah, raped a patient. Before doing that, Shah threatened me and broke the law to force me into the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. Shah owned an old people’s home in Bethesda which his wife, an Angel, managed. There were numerous complaints about standards of care there and then I became friendly with someone who had worked as a care assistant in that home. I was told at first hand that Shah and his wife were crooked, that residents were being injured and neglected and on every occasion it would be diligently noted on the records that the resident had been seen by Dr Shah. Who was the GP who owned the home…

In the 1980s, a Top Doctor tried to expose a similar set-up in a ‘failing’ care home in Devon via a letter to the BMJ. The Top Doc had visited a patient at the home, only to discover that another elderly resident has suffered serious scalding and that the ‘treatment’ had been kept within the family a la Shah, Mrs Shah and their home in Bethesda. The Top Doc noticed that some residents were tied to chairs with pairs of tights. That was, incredibly, a routine practice in the more mediocre establishments at the time; in hospitals, the elderly were tied to furniture with bandages, it was extraordinary witnessing how completely these practices were accepted.

Liz Stables, the Angel who ran the Student Health Centre at UCNW with D.G.E. Wood, was very critical of the Angels in Ysbyty Gwynedd for tethering the elderly with bandages. Because it was expensive and ‘once they’ve untied the old person they just throw the bandage away, now that’s waste isn’t it?’

The Labour Party’s Response:

Fatcher’s Cuts meant American Tan tights, not expensive bandages:

Mistral 30 Denier Sheer to Waist Tights - One Size - Various Colours (American Tan)


The Top Doc who wrote to the BMJ also noted that there was only one ‘carer’ on duty to see to the needs of many elderly residents, a teenaged girl, who had no knowledge of how to care for the lady who had been badly scalded.

So concerned was the Top Doc at what he witnessed at that home in Devon that he rang the Coroner, but only after he had heard that the lady with the extensive scalding injury had died days later. The Coroner was part-owner of the home.

The Top Doc’s letter to the BMJ was reasoned, moderate, factual and he did not name n shame. The BMJ’s decision to publish the letter was met with howls of outrage from other readers who testily stated that there was a place for this sort of discussion but the BMJ was not that place. Neither was the Coroner’s Court in Devon. The BMJ is a freebie sent to all members of the BMA.

Dr Shah died not long after I named him and discussed his activities on this blog. See eg. ‘Hippocratic Oath or Hypocritic Oaf?’, ‘How I Arrived At Denbigh’ and ‘Behind The Scenes – At The North Wales Hospital Denbigh’ .

Liz Stables bought a house in Menai Bridge in 1984. Shah and his partners ran the Menai Bridge Surgery as well as the GPs Surgery in Port Dinorwic (aka Felinheli).

Vanessa Poeppinghaus has starred in previous posts and comments. Vanessa enjoys rather better NHS care than her patients do. Vanessa, when in her 30s, underwent a multiple organ transplant, the Life Saving Op being carried out at King’s College Hospital, London. Vanessa was featured in the local media as an Inspirational Woman, following in the footsteps of another Inspirational Woman who was of Vanessa’s dad’s era.

See the source image

God knows how those who had suffered at Vanessa’s hands let alone the hands of her dad’s mates felt seeing Vanessa splashed across the press as the World’s Finest at King’s stressed how all boats would be pushed out for Vanessa’s continued active and long life, because obviously Vanessa Helps Others in her work in north Wales. The Gang all do.

Some time after the Life Saving Multiple Organ Transplant, Vanessa made headlines again. Vanessa did her Nancy Dell’Olio bit and was pictured in the media with a sad face explaining that I Want Babies Soon but I’m so worried that being a Survivor Of A Multiple Organ Transplant I might not be able to…

There was a Happy Ending once more for Vanessa! Medical Science mobilised the best that it had to offer again, it was Hi Tech Babies for Vanessa! Yes, Vanessa had the family that she feared might never happen – presumably Dr Shah played no part in the process, he was for Other People wasn’t he Vanessa – and after the Happy Event, Vanessa was once more touted as an Inspiration. Not as a criminal, ruthless, spoilt cow who accessed the sort of care that her patients were denied under virtually all circumstances.

The last encounter between Vanessa and I was in approx. 2008, the day after Vanessa’s colleagues in Ysbyty Gwynedd had hurled abuse at me, threatened me, refused to treat me, called the police and made fallacious allegations about me. I had returned to the scene of the crime with a voice recorder to ask for an explanation. Vanessa repeatedly shrieked at me that I would never be denied treatment, she Wanted To Help. I told her that her senior managers had tried to lean on the VC of Bangor University after I had complained about them, which indeed they had. Vanessa nearly fell over backwards in a faint and she then scarpered. Two days later, my solicitor received a furious letter from Martin Jones, the CEO of the NW Wales NHS Trust, quoting word for word my comments to Vanessa. I didn’t realise at the time, but Merfyn the VC was about to join the Board of the newly created Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, as the NW Wales NHS Trust was being dissolved by Edwina Hart, the Welsh Gov’t Health Minister. I knew that Martin’s ship was about to be torpedoed, it was such an embarrassment that it could remain no longer, but I didn’t realise that Merfyn was going to be braving the NHS…

It was, I have been told, Vanessa who organised the co-ordinated Campaign Of NHS Hate against Merfyn after he joined the Board and was then appointed Chairman the following year. Martin Jones and the dysfunctionals should have been arrested, but no, every one of them received posts in the new Board, created especially for them, at their old salary levels, with built-in pay increases, as a result of a deal between Edwina and the NHS unions.

Vanessa is now the senior consultant in A&E at Ysbyty Gwynedd and remains in post in the wake of scandal after scandal and patient deaths.

Anyone for a Royal Lobotomist, a GP who rapes his patients and their friend’s daughter utilising the World’s Finest thus Making Medical History, while her own patients are denied pain relief for what is acknowledged to be one of the most painful conditions possible, when, that is, they are not arrested by the police on the basis of false allegations made by staff or found dead in the Cathedral Gardens hours after being refused treatment by Vanessa’s colleagues? See eg. ‘Two Very Dangerous, Dishonest Nurses’.


There is of course another famous McAlpine who was related to Gwynne’s mentor; Thatch’s friend and advisor Alistair McAlpine, the second son of Ella Mary Gardner (Garnett) and Edwin McAlpine, the fifth Baronet, and the brother of William McAlpine, the sixth Baronet.

Edwin was the second son of William Hepburn McAlpine, ie. the second son of the half-brother of Gwynne’s mentor. In common with his elder brother Tom and younger brother Malcolm, Edwin joined the family firm when he left Oundle School at the age of 18, becoming a partner in the 1950s. In 1955 he became Deputy Chairman of the Nuclear Power Plant Co., becoming the Chairman four years later overseeing the construction of seven nuclear power stations for Sir Robert McAlpine.

Dafydd worked at Windscale before he began his medicine degree at Liverpool. Dafydd knew a collection of nuclear physicists, who in turn knew Lord Patrick Blackett, who had a second home at Croesor and was a friend of Sir Clough – an old boy of Oundle – and Bertrand Russell.

Edwin was knighted in 1963 – the year that the Profumo Affair erupted – and was made a life peer as Baron McAlpine of Moffat on 21 February 1980, in the immediate aftermath of Mr Thrope (a close friend of the Lloyd George family), Walking Free From The Old Bailey and of the Mary Wynch business. Edwin inherited the family baronetcy in 1983 on the death of his brother Tom.

Edwin was an enthusiastic racehorse breeder and owned his own stud at Henley on Thames, was Chairman of Sandown Park Racecourse and was a frequent gambler. Ronnie Waterhouse’s father-in-law bred racehorses and Ronnie knew most of the well-known breeders.

Michael Heseltine was the MP for Henley, Feb 1974-2001; Boris succeeded him in the seat. Heseltine grew up in Swansea and his first phase of being a Tory MP was between 1966 and 1974, when he was the MP for Tavistock in Devon, with Mr Thrope not far down the road and Dr Death close at hand in Plymouth as well.

On 8 December 1930 Edwin McAlpine married Ella Mary Gardner Garnett (d. 1987). They had four children: Patricia (b. 1932), William (1936-2018), (Robert) Alistair (1942-2014) and David (b. 1946). The sons also joined the family firm.

Robert Alistair McAlpine, Baron McAlpine of West Green (14 May 1942-17 January 2014) was a British businessman, politician and author who was an advisor to Thatch. McAlpine held a variety of jobs before becoming prominent in British politics in the 1980s as the Treasurer and a major fundraiser of the Conservative Party. A close ally of Thatch, McAlpine did not support her successor John Major, and later joined James Goldsmith‘s Referendum Party. Sir Jams of the gaming tables with the biggest spenders in the poshest dens… McAlpine later rejoined the Conservatives but resigned his seat in the Lords. Outside politics McAlpine was prominent in a variety of business developments in Australia as well as being an art collector and memoirist.

McAlpine was born at The Dorchester in Mayfair, a hotel owned by his family. He described his childhood as “idyllic” but not luxurious. He went to boarding school at the age of six. McAlpine left Stowe School at 16, the Stowe School of Perry Worsthorne of the Torygraph and the posh end of Dafydd and Gwynne’s network, and the Stowe School of George Melly of offering money in exchange for sex to underaged boys in Bangor as well as in other places.

At the age of 21, McAlpine became a Director of the family company, at the time named Sir Robert McAlpine & Sons. He made money in property development in Australia and worked in the building business until he entered politics. McAlpine founded his own publishing house in London in the 1960s, and was an art dealer, art collector, zookeeper (in Broome, Western Australia), horticulturist, beekeeper, agriculturist, gardener and traveller.

Although the inner circle of Harold Wilson had once considered appointing McAlpine as a fundraiser, McAlpine was entranced by the new Tory Party Leader Thatch at a 1975 dinner party – Peter Morrison had been elected as the Tory MP for Chester in Feb 1974 – and she soon appointed McAlpine Conservative Treasurer, a position that he would retain until 1990.

Anyone for lunch at the Clarence?

See the source image

Thatch and McAlpine continued to have a close working relationship throughout Thatch’s time as PM and McAlpine led the fundraising efforts for the Conservative’s General Election campaigns.

McAlpine’s obituary in the Torygraph described him as “…probably the most successful fundraiser the party ever had; yet by nature a dilettante, he did not become a significant political figure” and “…never really “into” politics. McAlpine’s personal political views were varied and included the decriminalisation of all drugs.

McAlpine was nominated to the Arts Council of Great Britain in 1980, despite protests at a perceived lack of experience in the field and his opposition to public subsidisation of the arts. Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate Sir Kenneth Robinson was Chair of the Arts Council of Great Britain, 1977-82. Robinson, a former Oundle boy, assisted Dafydd and Gwynne as the MP for St Pancras North, 1949-70, part of the Camden ring that was linked to the Gang in north Wales, as Harold Wilson’s Health Minister , 1966-68 and as Chairman of the National Association for Mental Health (MIND).

Robinson was instrumental in setting a trap for the Church of Scientology who had in the late 1960s accused psychiatry of ‘crimes against children’ and conducting dangerous research on patients. On those matters, the Scientologists were correct. They were lured into a libel case against MIND and Kenneth Robinson, which the Scientologists lost in a big and very public way. Ronnie Waterhouse acted against them and the presiding judge was Of Gwynne and Dafydd’s network. See previous posts…

The case inflicted damage on the Scientologists, but more importantly it meant that no-one dared touch Dafydd and Gwynne again. The case was rigged and was the work of the security services from start to finish. The trap was laid just as John Allen set up the Bryn Alyn Community and the industrial scale production line for child sex workers in north Wales.

Not long after the Scientologists lost the libel case, the barrister who had defended them disappeared and was never seen again. Ronnie enjoyed telling people that he ‘had heard’ that the Scientologists barrister ‘had fled with a wealthy client’s funds’. There was absolutely no evidence that he had done any such thing.

McAlpine served on the Arts Council of Great Britain, 1981-82. Other public bodies on which McAlpine served included the Theatre Investment Fund, of which he was Chairman. He was also a Trustee of the Royal Opera House and a Director of the Institute of Contemporary Arts.

McAlpine was created a life peer in the 1984 New Year Honours, as Mary Wynch advanced towards the Master of the Rolls and as D.G.E. Wood told Brown and me lies about Gwynne and then refused to treat me if I didn’t agree to see Gwynne.

See the source image

Tell me Wood, do you regret that now?

As Party Treasurer, McAlpine raised large sums for the Tories, often over lunches with business leaders. Money would never be discussed directly at the lunches, McAlpine would later say that “I used to lurk…I lurked all over London where rich people went.” The Conservative Party had raised £1.5 million the year before McAlpine became Treasurer, the figures had increased to £4 million by the 1979 General Election and more than £9 million by the time that Thatch’s was deposed in 1990.

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

McAlpine also channelled funds through offshore accounts and received funds from US and Hong Kong nationals. One of the funders of the era was Asil Nadir who was in 2012 convicted of stealing from the Polly Peck company. Nadir fled to Northern Cyprus to avoid jail for years, using the services of the medico-legal specialists that were so often on hand for the Gang. See previous posts. D.G.E. Wood has been holding clinics in Cyprus for some years now. Other foreign businessmen courted by McAlpine included Li Ka-shing and Mohamed Al-Fayed. McAlpine also claimed that he worked to help Major raise a large sum from Greek businessman Yiannis Latsis, though Major denied it.

McAlpine was allegedly on a target list of the Provisional IRA. He was on Thatcher’s team when the IRA bombed the Grand Hotel in Brighton in 1984, but was not injured. In 1990 the IRA bombed West Green House, a mansion in Hartley Wintney, where McAlpine had lived just weeks before, and where in the past Thatch had been a guest. It is now alleged by many that many of the terrorist bombings attributed to the IRA and other Irish nationalist organisations in that era were targeting people involved in organised paedophilia. The landscape is considerably muddied by Dafydd having been recruited by the British security services in the 1950s to infiltrate Plaid and Irish Republican groups, but being Dafydd he used all his knowledge and contacts to further his criminal empire.

In the mid 1980s, for reasons of safety and tax, McAlpine decided to move to Monaco and Venice. Before his departure McAlpine had sold many of his possessions at Sotheby’s.

McAlpine was Deputy Chairman of the Tory Party, 1979-83; Cecil Parkinson was Chairman, 14 Sept 1981-11 June 83. I’ve only just noticed that Cecil was appointed Chairman of the Tory Party approx one/two weeks before I went to UCNW for Freshers’ Week.

McAlpine joined Sir Jams’s Referendum Party in the autumn of 1996 and was Chair of its October 1996 Party conference. The Hague announced that there would be a Public Inquiry into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal in May 1996 and named Ronnie Waterhouse as the Chair of the Inquiry in Sept 1996. In 1997 McAlpine became the Referendum Party’s Leader following Goldsmith’s death, although the Party would soon become defunct. McAlpine was very critical of the Conservative Party under The Hague and sat as an Independent Conservative for some time in the Lords before rejoining the Conservatives.

In 1997 McAlpine was briefly involved in the movement by some British conservatives to help Chechnya, especially by trying to support its oil industry.

In order to maintain his non-dom status and so be able to avoid paying UK residents’ taxes, McAlpine stepped down from his seat in the House of Lords in 2010 because of a constitutional amendment to the British tax code.

McAlpine liked Cecil Parkinson but and disliked Parkinson’s successor, John Gummer. McAlpine was said to have used his influence over Thatch to ensured Gummer’s replacement as Party Chairman by Norman Tebbit. Sir Peter Morrison was Deputy Chairman under Tebbs.

McAlpine first went to Western Australia in about 1960. In the mid 1960s he went to Perth to work, developing office blocks and a five star hotel. In the 1980s McAlpine attempted to invigorate the tourism business in  Broome. McAlpine had first been impressed with Broome in the late 1970s. He invested $500 million on various developments, such as restoring crumbling buildings, fixing up a cinema, and creating the Cable Beach Resort club and the Pearl Coast Zoological Gardens. McAlpine bought a stake in a pearl farm and helped promote the South Sea Pearl. He promoted local culture including Aboriginal artwork.

McAlpine gave to charidees as well as start-up businesses. Economic conditions worsened in the early 1990s, and tourism was affected by the 1989 Australian pilots’ dispute. McAlpine had to sell his stakes and leave in the mid-1990s. The zoo closed, but many of his efforts lasted, such as the Cable Beach club. When McAlpine revisited Broome in 2012 he was described positively in several media stories and the town leaders honoured him as Freeman of the Municipality.

McAlpine was an early collector of the American painter Mark Rothko. He was keen on Abstract expressionism and artists such as Morris Louis and Jackson Pollock. He also collected the work of Australian painter Sidney Nolan. McAlpine made collections of folk art from various continents and was also interested in modern sculpturists such as William Turnbull, Naum Gabo, Michael Bolus and David Annesley.

In 1970 McAlpine donated 60 sculptures to the Tate, including works by Turnbull, Annesley, and Bolus, as well as Phillip King, Tim Scott, William Tucker, and Isaac Witkin. McAlpine also donated hundreds of erotic pictures to the Art Gallery of New South Wales, including works by Bob Carlos Clarke, Karl Lagerfeld, David Bailey, Terence Donovan, and others. Bloomsbury Book Auctions sold many of these items in 2003. The auction was entitled “A (Very) Private Collection: Fashion and Eroticism Photographs 1970–1990”.

In the 1970s McAlpine and the classical architect Quinlan Terry constructed various follies in the grounds of West Green House. McAlpine also constructed a classical triumphal arch topped with an obelisk that bears a plaque dedicating the arch to the “first lady Prime Minister of Great Britain”.

McAlpine lived in several parts of the world including England, Western Australia, Paris, Venice and Southern Italy.

In 1987 McAlpine had heart bypass surgery, which led him to relax his lifestyle and stop smoking. In 1999 he had further heart bypass surgery, which led to complications resulting in his having a tracheotomy  and thus difficulty in speaking. McAlpine was in a coma for a month on a life-support machine following his second heart operation,

after which he experienced a deathbed conversion to Catholicism.

McAlpine was married three times. He married for the first time in 1964, to Sarah Baron. They had two daughters together and divorced shortly after McAlpine became the Conservative Party Treasurer. His two daughters did not speak to him for many years following the divorce. McAlpine married his second wife, Romilly Hobbs, in 1980. She had been his political secretary and was a “glamorous and popular hostess” during Thatch’s premiership. McAlpine and Hobbs had a daughter, and divorced shortly after McAlpine’s second heart operation, owing to his adultery.

In early 2002 McAlpine married as his third wife, Athena Malpas. She was born in Dublin of a Greek shipping family. The couple met when she was working for the youth wing of the Referendum Party and married in Paris, with his reconciled daughters present. Athena was 32 and McAlpine was 59. They moved to Southern Italy, renovated an old convent and opened a B&B in the vicinity of the coastal city of Lecce.

In November 2012, McAlpine was named as an abuser in the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal after the BBC Newsnight programme accused an unnamed “senior Conservative” of abuse. McAlpine was widely rumoured on Twitter and other social media platforms to be the person in question. After The Guardian reported that the accusations were the result of mistaken identity, McAlpine issued a strong denial that he was in any way involved. The accuser was Steve Messham, a former Bryn Estyn boy; he unreservedly apologised after seeing a photograph of McAlpine and realising that he had been mistaken, leading to a report in the Torygraph that the BBC was “in chaos”. The BBC also then apologised.

The decision to broadcast the Newsnight report without contacting McAlpine first led to the resignation of the DG, George Entwistle. The BBC subsequently paid McAlpine £185,000 in damages plus costs, which he donated to charidee, some of it to charidees that had colluded with organised child abuse. McAlpine also won £125,000 in damages plus costs from ITV following a November 2012 edition of This Morning which linked Tory politicians to allegations of child sex abuse, again donating the damages to charidee.

Tony Francis was found hanged in 2012. I received an e mail telling me this when I was on the run in secret locations after being threatened at gunpoint. The gun was wielded by a policeman. When I told Rachel Vasmer, my lawyer from Walker Smith Way that a policeman had threatened me, as well as another witness, with a gun, Rachel told me to er go to the police. Shortly after that, Rachel sent me a letter saying that she would no longer be working on my case because she had accepted a job as a Tribunal Judge. One of Rachel’s colleagues then wrote to me saying that they would not be proceeding with my case any further, but if I wished they would release the files to another solicitor if I paid them £11k in outstanding fees. I responded by saying that I wasn’t aware that I owed them £11k, I didn’t have £11k, I was homeless, jobless and in hiding. Walker Smith Way replied thanking me for the £11k. I was mystified but before I had time to catch up with them, I was unlawfully detained in a psych hospital and when I emerged, Walker Smith Way had disappeared, along with the hard copies of my files…

McAlpine expressed his intention to pursue 20 “high profile” Twitter users who had reported or alluded to the rumours. He decided to drop the defamation claims against those with fewer than 500 followers in return for a £25 donation to the Children in Need charidee. Er, yes…

One high-profile case was settled out of court: in March 2013, McAlpine’s representatives reached an agreement with George Monbiot, who had tweeted on the case and had at that time more than 55,000 followers on Twitter, for Monbiot to carry out work on behalf of three charities of his choice whose value amounted to £25,000 as compensation. Monbiot described this settlement as “unprecedented” and “eminently decent”, reflecting well on McAlpine.

Another case went to court: McAlpine v Bercow. Sally Bercow, the defendant, is the wife of John Bercow, the Commons Speaker. On 24 May 2013, the High Court of Justice ruled that Sally’s tweet  was libellous. The two parties agreed on a settlement and McAlpine donated the damages awarded to the charidee Children in Need…

McAlpine died on 17 January 2014 at his home in Italy, aged 71.

I have no idea whether McAlpine did abuse kids in north Wales, but many of those with whom he was friendly and raised funds for did and even more of them facilitated and/or concealed organised abuse.

Sally Bercow doesn’t need to send cryptic tweets illustrated with pics of little smiling faces. It was Gwynne, Dafydd and Tony Francis Sally, along with their mates. I and others were trapped by them in the 1980s and it lasted for years and no-one, no-one would help, no matter what evidence we produced.

Amanda Platell worked for McAlpine in Oz at the beginning of her career. The Hague appointed Glenda as his Press Officer to work for him throughout the Waterhouse Inquiry and the aftermath. See post ‘Did Glenda Occupy A Key Role In Keeping It All Out Of The Media?’

Alistair McAlpine’s brother Sir William Hepburn McAlpine, 6th Baronet, (12 January 1936-4 March 2018) was Director of the construction company Sir Robert McAlpine. Born in 1936 at the family-owned Dorchester Hotel in Mayfair, William McAlpine was the oldest son of Sir Edwin McAlpine, 5th Bt by his marriage to Ella Mary Gardner Garnett. He had two younger brothers, Alistair McAlpine, Baron McAlpine of West Green and David McAlpine.

William McAlpine was brought up at the family home in Surrey and educated at Charterhouse; I think that F’s brother may have been to Charterhouse. F grew up in Woking and he and his brother went to prep schools that sent pupils to Charterhouse and some of their friends definitely went there.

McAlpine joined the family firm from school, starting his career at the Hayes Depot in Middlesex, which housed the McAlpine railway locomotive and wagon fleet. William served in the Life Guards, 1954-56.

In 1990, on the death of his father, McAlpine inherited his baronetcy and became Sir William. He was Patron of the Clan MacAlpine Society. Sir William served as High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire for 1999. He was a Director and Trustee of the educational charity Shiplake Court Limited.

In 2007 William McAlpine was President of the Smeatonian Society of Civil Engineers to which he had been elected a member in 1985. Sir William was also the President of the Railway Benevolent Institution, known as the Railway Benefit Fund, a charity helping current and retired railway industry workers. An acknowledged railway enthusiast, McAlpine returned to Hayes depot during the Beeching Axe to find that the company’s Hudswell Clarke 0-6-0ST No.31 was for sale. He purchased the locomotive, and moved it to his country estate home at Fawley, Buckinghamshire. This marked the start in 1961 of the Fawley Hill Railway, a private railway now over a mile long and it includes:

The Great Eastern Railway Somersham railway station

  • Midland Railway signal box from Shobnall Maltings, near Burton-upon-Trent
  • The footbridge from Brading on the Isle of Wight, where it spanned the Ryde Pier to Shanklin line

McAlpine’s private railway museum is maintained by volunteers. After starting Fawley Hill Railway, McAlpine purchased 4079 Pendennis Castle in partnership with John Gretton, which was subsequently housed at Market Overton in Rutland. After being moved to the Steamtown, it was sold to Rio Tinto and moved to Australia. In January 1973 McAlpine purchased 4472 Flying Scotsman after a financially disastrous tour of North America, to save it from sale to an American consortium.

McAlpine became involved in a plan to save the Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway (RH&DR) and became its Chairman. After the efforts of Dr Peter Beet to preserve Carnforth LMS 10(A) shed, McAlpine bought shares in 1970, and then took the controlling interest, 1974-87 in the visitor attraction that became Steamtown. McAlpine chaired the RH&DR, the Dart Valley Railway, and established and Chaired the Railway Heritage Trust.

McAlpine was also a Patron of the Swanage Railway Trust, as well as President of the Transport Trust.

The obvious links with the Gang here include specialist railways; Wales and the West Country have a lot of them and certainly in north Wales, members of the Gang are involved in running them. Penrhyn Castle near Bangor is in the hands of the Gang and has been for decades, both before and after it was handed over to the National Trust. The Railway Museum at Penrhyn Castle was used, throughout the 1980s, as a summer job scheme for victims of the Gang, funded by Thatch’s Manpower Services Commission, a body dominated by the grander members of the Gang eg. Sir Melvyn Prosser.

F worked at the Railway Museum and told me many entertaining anecdotes. The work placements were all occupied by former Denbigh patients or others who had their lives wrecked by the Gang. The supervision was provided by Wing Commander Ian Panton. F and his workmates liked Panton because he was friendly and joined in with the grafting himself; however, from what F told me it was clear that by chatting to F and the others and by listening to their conversations, Panton knew that they had been the victims of serious crimes on the part of police officers, Top Docs and others. F showed me the reference that Panton wrote for him; it would have bagged F another manual job at the bottom of the jobs market and that it where everyone on that ‘job scheme’ stayed. ‘The sort of people’ who were employed at the Railway Museum was also known in the area and it was probably enough to stop them ever getting out of that cohort… See previous posts.

Rio Tinto owned Anglesey Aluminium,  the major employer on Anglesey – apart from Wylfa Nuclear Power Station -for years. Liz Stables, the Angel in the Student Health Centre in UCNW, previously worked as the Angel for Anglesey Aluminium. Stables was mates with Dafydd and an essential member of the trafficking team in UCNW. Liz grew up on Anglesey, near Llandegfan and has lived in the area for most of her adult life.

McAlpine’s first wife Jill Benton Jones, whom he married on 31 October 1959, died on 9 February 2004. They had two children:

Sir William married his second wife, Judith, whom he had known for many years, on 25 March 2004 at the restored station on his private railway.

Sir William McAlpine died on 4 March 2018 and was succeeded in the baronetcy by his only son.


Donald Acheson was Deputy CMO CHECK in 1983 when Sir Henry Yellowlees (19 April 1919-22 March 2006) was still CMO of the UK, Yellowlees serving in that role 1973-84. Ken Clarke hated nearly everyone with whom he had to deal when he was at the Dept of Health, but Ken particularly loathed Yellowlees. Clarke maintained that Yellowless had no interest in anything other than ensuring that Eminent Top Docs received the right level of gong for their station in life. Ken Clarke tells many lies, but I’m prepared to believe him with regard to that. Senior Docs on the London scene seem to have had the part of their brain removed that assesses the value of people on qualities other than their gong. They are genuinely impressed by a gong in the way that I would not have thought any intelligent person who has (supposedly) clocked up academic and professional achievements in the field of science would be.

Yellowlees was educated at Stowe School and University College, Oxford. After a sequence of appointments to Regional Hospital Boards, Yellowlees was seconded to the Ministry of Health in 1963, rising to become CMO George Godber‘s Deputy in 1967 and CMO himself in 1973. Godber was CMO, 1960-73- see previous posts for details of George Godber. Godber was a dreadful bloke, a friend of Gwynne and Dafydd who provided them with an impenetrable shield. Godber was constructed as a living saint for being the bureaucratic turd who ‘helped Nye bring the NHS into being’. In reality, Godber was an elitist of the highest order who was of the opinion that he would decide what the plebs would have and they’d have it no matter how bad or indeed dangerous it was. Godber’s view of the world pervaded Gwynedd Health Authority in the 1980s, it wasn’t until years that later I discovered that Godber actually knew Gwynne and Dafydd.

Godber worked for the security services and held a senior role. He went to Bedford School along with Geraint Morgan QC, the Tory MP for Denbigh, 1959-83. Godber’s brother Joseph also went to Bedford School, Joseph Godber serving as the Tory MP for Thatch’s home town of Grantham, 1951-79. Joseph Godber succeeded Profumo as War Secretary in Supermac’s Cabinet after Profumo was obliged to resign, served in Douglas Home’s Gov’t and then as MAFF Minister under the Grocer, 1972-74. Joseph Godber stood down as an MP in May 1979 and was given a peerage. Douglas Hogg succeeded him as MP for Grantham. Joseph Godber died at the age of 66 on 25 Aug 1980, the year after Mr Thrope Walked Free From The Old Bailey and soon after Mary Wynch had finally got out of Denbigh and began her litigation against George Godber’s mates in north Wales. See previous posts for more info on Joseph Godber, who was also active in the NFU.

George Godber studied at New College, Oxford and was ‘partly inspired to pursue public health by his Warden, the historian H.A.L. Fisher who had been Lloyd George’s Education Secretary’. HAL Fisher was part of Bertrand Russell’s and Sir Clough’s Welsh Bloomsbury Set, as discussed in previous posts… Another mentor of Godber’s was Richard Crossman, when Crossman was a don at New College Oxford; Crossman later became Godber’s Secretary of State at the DHSS.

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

Did the nightmare that was George Godber’s Training In Health for the Public Good get yet worse? Indeed it did. The security services officer that was Godber then trained as a Top Doc at the Royal London Hospital in Tower Hamlets, the institution that facilitated organised abuse with what became Gwynne and Dafydd’s partner gang in the East End. The Top Doc biggies of the organised abuse of the 1980s and 90s – William Asscher, Wendy Savage, Lord Bob Winston, Sir John Ellis, Clifford Wilson et al – trained/worked at the London Hospital in the 1950s and 60s. Godber was their forerunner, qualifying in 1933; I can only imagine the state of those in poverty as Godber held his nose and told their elders and betters – he certainly won’t have spoken to The Poor himself -how he would be Assisting Them. Gwynne was doing the same thing down the road at the Middlesex Hospital, on the doorstep of Bloomsbury and er Soho when it really was Soho…

Those to whom Gwynne Helped and put to er good use, if you please Earl Russell/Sir Clough/Lord Mountbatten:

The Middlesex Hospital still had a member of the lower orders in a top hat and frock coat to meet and greet the people who mattered – the Top Docs and med students etc ie. not the patients – in the 1960s. I had to pop over to the Middlesex when I was working at St George’s. I had no idea that it was Gwynne’s alma mater and that I’d caused a sensation by getting rid of him and that the reason why the Middlesex was targeted for closure as all other London med schools survived Thatch’s intended axe was Gwynne, who was now dead and being written out of history. I do remember the crumbling grandiosity and the lecturer with whom I was spending the morning being spoken to by the porter in a very cap-doffing way and addressed as ‘doctor’ rather than by her Christian name, although she wasn’t a bigwig. She was a friend of Chamberlain’s lot, she’ll have been briefed as to who I was and What I’d Done In Bangor To Poor Gwynne. I wish that I’d known at the time, I’d have had a good laugh and been even more observant re the Middlesex. Chamberlain’s wife was a Prof at the Middlesex as well, poor old Jocelyn Chamberlain had to transfer to UCL…

Three guesses as to who in Whitehall with the remit for Health thought that Dafydd might actually have a positive contribution to make and thus ensured that Dafydd was offered a place and subsequently qualified as a Top Doc from Liverpool as an older graduate, on the back of a truly dreadful academic and personal record?

Godber lived to see 100 and unfortunately remained active until the very end, including in the MDU… The toxic bastard died in Feb 2009.

The main effect of Godber was the Westminster Paedophile Ring being allowed to expand and continue it’s activities even when child witnesses were known to have been murdered as well as close friends of Thatch’s being allowed to continue to abuse children. Godber’s brother Joseph serving as the MP for Grantham until 1979 when he hurriedly left the scene, only to die the following year, leaves me concluding that this was the thickest of plots with George Godber absolutely at the centre of it. Godber wanted Thatch and Dafydd to stay put, definitely. I presume that Godber was tied up in the Airey Neave/Crazed End Of The Security Services plan to install Thatch as a sort of reliable second best to Lord Mountbatten, who it is known desired to become Dictator of Britain in the face of all the socialism that Mountbatten kept tripping over.

Godber clearly worked hard to damage me, but I wasn’t there when Godber initially got going; he was in on something seriously weird and criminal from his days as a young man.

Blasphemous Thought For The Day: When one takes a long hard look at those who Established The NHS, their backgrounds, politics and values – eugenics, covert euthanasia, covert forced ‘contraception’ etc – there is no way that they established the NHS to Help The Poor and when one looks at what happened to The Poor at their hands, it clearly didn’t Help them. Nye might not have known the real agenda, but who did and what was it really all about? Social control of the plebs obviously, but there must have been a real threat or imagined threat to someone…

The Middlesex was the most Royal of Hospitals. The Earl of Athlone aka Prince Alexander of Teck – brother of Queen Mary, Consort of King George V – was the Chairman of the Board of Governors and still Chancellor of the University of London even when Gwynne qualified…

Godber’s mate Yellowlees died on 22 March 2006, survived by his second wife, Mary and three children he had with his first wife, Sally.

‘The Guardian’ published a lovely piece of fiction as an obituary for Henry Yellowlees:

Sir Henry Yellowlees, who has died aged 86, was chief medical officer (CMO) at the Department of Health during a decade of turbulence in the health service and political change. Within a year of his appointment in 1973 the Conservative government fell to Labour and the NHS underwent massive reorganisation as the three former separate parts were brought into a single organisation, new health authorities came into being and new appointments made in a new speciality – community medicine.

Community medicine became the traffickers’ dream… Top Docs wielding power over aspects of their patients’ lives most vulnerable to bigoted judgemental misinterpretation, with draconian consequences eg. one’s children being declared as ‘troubled’ and sent ‘on placement’ to live with Gwynne and Dafydd’s friend John Allen.

The CMO historically acts as intermediary between the medical profession and government, a task that can be fraught, for instance when government acts unilaterally to reduce pay awards recommended by the independent pay review board.

Ah, the obituarist has identified the most pressing problem…

To the politician the CMO is the doctors’ friend, to doctors he appears to be always responsive to his political master’s voice. Since the early days of the NHS this role had never been more difficult than in Barbara Castle’s two years as secretary of state for health (1974-76). She arrived determined to finish “what Nye [Bevan] had started” by removing private practice from the NHS. Overruling the advice of senior officials she pressed ahead with predictable results: the alienation of the medical profession, a 16-week working-to-contract by consultants, industrial action by medical staff and collection of 16,000 undated resignations by the British Medical Association (BMA).

This is tripe. Babs made a great pretence of being determined to stamp out private practice, but Babs knew that she couldn’t and would be at the mercy of the Top Docs, not only because Babs used private medicine herself in her unsuccessful attempts re fertility treatment, not only because Babs had many close friends who were part of the Westminster Paedophile Ring with the Toppest of the Top Docs, but because Babs had what used to be called a past. What do all those women Labour MPs who See Barbara Castle As Their Political Hero think that the constant references to Babs’s ‘passion’, the ‘flaming red hair’, her ‘spirit’, her ‘surviving among so many men with terrible attitudes to women’ actually meant??? How did they imagine that Babs who, unlike Thatch, did not marry a millionaire Tory businessman, made her way in a landscape of tough old gits who had fought in the Spanish Civil War and believed that they had the right to have sex with people who didn’t want to have sex with them, even if they were children?

Do wake up Labour Wimmin.

So Babs, in cahoots with Dr Death, commissioned Dafydd’s friend nuclear physicist Sir Alec Merrison to Chair a Royal Commission on the NHS, recommending the phasing out of private practice, knowing that Merrison would not report until Thatch was PM – a certainty at the time – who would chuck Merrison’s Report in the bin and shoulder the blame for Private Practice and Not Supporting The NHS.

The Babs and Dr Death who were part of Sunny Jim’s Gov’t, Sunny Jim the smug old git who held a Cardiff constituency and was fully aware of the doings of George Thomas, Gwynne, Dafydd and the ‘underclass’ at Tiger Bay. Sunny Jim as a young man had worked in the Admiralty and as Home Secretary under Wilson, Sunny Jim had made things as easy as he could for Leo Abse and Gwynne and Dafydd’s mates to rewrite the legislation on kids in care. See eg. ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’. The legislation was finally passed with the help of Dr Death as the Children Act 1975 and thousands of kids were sent into the hands of the rings operating through the Social Services Depts across the UK.

Jim and Audrey colluded with abuse at Great Ormond Street as well, while receiving accolades for their Helping GOSH and Raising Money, Audrey Being Chair of Governors of GOSH for years and then responsible for fundraising.

None of this lot could have thought it all up themselves and there was a strong Wales theme throughout…

This was an agonising time for a CMO, obliged to participate in all-night negotiations between an implacable secretary of state, a furious profession and equally angry ancillary staff refusing to provide essential services to those occupying private beds.

The biggest punch-up was between the unions representing the ancillary staff and the unions representing Angels and Top Docs.

The post of CMO has always been seen within Whitehall as a heavy one, with many duties that cannot be delegated and an international role that entails a lot of travel. Sir George Godber, Yellowlees’s immediate predecessor, slept on a camp bed in his office two or three nights a week.

If that is true, it will have been for a reason other than Godber not having access to one of the best hotels and the NHS being willing to foot the bill.

Concern about the ever-increasing workload and awareness of Yellowlees’s coronary thrombosis in 1972

The Experts in public health weren’t doing too well with Yellowlees then.

led Godber to propose the appointment of two chief medical officers, the senior one to take forward public health, the other the NHS. This could solve one problem – the need to have that rare individual, one with a solid background in public health but also knowledge of the health service and its management; but at lower levels within the medical civil service there were duties that crossed the divide. Yellowlees preferred to remain the sole CMO at a time that saw cuts in response to the oil crisis and a change of government in 1979.

The son of an eminent psychiatrist, Yellowlees was educated at Stowe school and University College, Oxford. Service as an RAF pilot from 1941 to 1945 delayed his entry to medical school, and he did not qualify in medicine at the Middlesex Hospital until 1950.

Gwynne had already qualified, worked as a Royal Navy surgeon and had witnessed/facilitated/participated in all the gayness that such a role entailed

Image result for how very dare you derek images

and had begun his career as the Royal Lobotomist at Denbigh. Roger Gilliatt qualified at the Middlesex in 1949 and immediately took a job there as a Doc.

Almost immediately he became a medical manager,

No experience needed, straight in at the top, well his father was… I’ll come on to Yellowlees’s dad soon.

acting as resident medical officer there, and his handling of an epidemic among staff brought him to the attention of Godber.

It was saving the staff brought one to the attention of Mr Big in MI5, not merely saving the patients

After a sequence of appointments to regional hospital boards Yellowlees was seconded to the Ministry of Health in 1963, rising to become Godber’s deputy in 1967 and CMO in 1973.

Yellowlees arrived at the Ministry in the midst of the Profumo Affair, while Enoch Powell was Macmillan’s Health Minister and was saying absolutely nothing about Gwynne and Dafydd, although in 1961 Enoch had promised in public to put them out of action immediately.

During his time in office, Yellowlees rationalised the role of medical advice to other government departments – the Home Office with the prison medical service, the Department of Education and the Ministry of Food and Agriculture. New medical specialities, particularly accident and emergency medicine and community medicine, came into being. In Britain legislation on lead in petrol was passed, while abroad the World Health Organisation (WHO) campaign led to the eradication of smallpox.

Yellowlees knew all those we know and love, from Lord Kenyon, to Richard Crossman, to Lord Platt, to Dame Isobel Graham Bryce, all the old favourites who were keeping a lid on, indeed brewing, the catastrophe.

A long-standing concern about the long hours and uncertain career prospects of junior doctors led Yellowlees to take the first steps in reducing working hours, stimulating consultant expansion and helping the increasing number of young women doctors to stay in medicine while raising families.

Junior docs still have a very raw deal. If their consultant a la Dafydd just isn’t there, even when the consultant is flouting all ‘rules’ by not being there to such a degree that patient safety is seriously compromised, the junior docs simply do the job themselves and in the event of a patient death, they will be hung out to dry if they break ranks and fail to collude with the Cover Story saying ‘I was on my own, the consultant was at a private clinic elsewhere and could not be contacted…’ Remember the recent case of Dr Bawa-Garba in Leicester…

As for wimmin in medicine, for years now a lot of wimmin have qualified. If they want families they tend to become GPs, because they can then work two days a week, enjoy their children and earn more than most other people, wimmin and men, who work full-time, because the Docs salaries are now so high. Docs are explaining that there Is A Crisis because er so many wimmin GPs are working part-time.

Yellowlees was an outstanding administrator, totally without status consciousness,

Gwynne was described as a ‘wise administrator’. In NHS speak it means someone who conceals very serious crap in such a way that although everyone knows what is going on, the rigging of the system is sufficient to enable it to continue. In Gwynne’s case, that meant the forging of documentation and the destruction of the brains of witnesses/complainants.

Yellowlees being totally without status consciousness was why he was keen to ensure that the appropriate gongs went to the appropriate people; Dafydd’s minions in Wales received OBEs, Lord Bob became Lord Bob

genuinely non-discriminatory

Anyone up for such entrenched discrimination in the NHS that inequalities in terms of psych patients, learning disabled patients, social class and even in terms of regions of the UK have remained stubbornly with us after so many years of Nye, Godber, Michael Marmot, Uncle Harry’s friends and Yellowlees himself?

and always ready to give credit where it was due.

I’ve not received my compensation cheque yet or seen the public denunciation of the sex offending killers who caused so many problems.

He had a strong belief in an NHS free to all

Including one that knowingly infects thousands of people with HIV and Hep B, denying all responsibility until most of those infected have died

and leading the field in research and innovation.

Such as knowingly using infected blood products on Other People, never one’s own nearest and dearest

He was always ready to listen to argument and adjust policy in the light of new evidence.

Er, those infected blood products? Gwynne and Dafydd?

He was keen to help the nursing and other health professionals advance their roles and status.

That was done by appointing Angels who had colluded with the worst criminality to academic posts for which they were not qualified and could not do. Think Baroness Jean Macfarlane ‘the first Professor of Nursing in England’ and Gang members Professor Fiona Irvine, Professor Mike Nolan and at the bottom end (so to speak) Mr Ruined Behi. There are many more such examples. There are Angels with academic ability who would be excellent, but they took/take one look at this lot and ran/run.

On leaving the Department of Health in 1983, Yellowlees worked for a year at the Ministry of Defence on a new structure for medical staff in the armed services.

See the source image

I never saw Brown’s dad behaving as these Military Fairies are, but Col Brown was still busy in the British Army in 1983, as the Gang advanced on Brown and me, which makes Yellowlees’s transfer to a role at the MoD intriguing as well as worrying.

He then became a consultant at the WHO European office, among other tasks leading the team that successfully negotiated with Turkey and Bulgaria for the provision of healthcare for Bulgarian refugees.

Oh God, Yellowlees told Johnny Foreigner what to do

He was a council member of the Medical Research Council for nine years, a General Medical Council member for 10 years

While money was given to people whom were known to be fabricating research results and all complaints against Dafydd et al were ignored

and an active and vocal member of the BMA council from 1986 to 1990.

That was while the BMA were providing Tony Francis et al with free Advice re how to fit me up in Court and have me banged up for offences that they knew I had not committed

He remained on the health service supervisory board for 10 years and the council of the British Nutrition Foundation for more than 20 years.

That organisation is a rather odd scam driven by some of the usual subjects to deflect attention away from people ending up distressed because of being targeted by the Gang and rationalising it by using Brain Science to blame the targets’ disadvantage on their Poor Diet. See previous posts. These are the problem rather than organised abuse/criminality in the welfare state:

Yellowlees was a joy to work with, always considerate of staff and aware of the pressures on them, approachable, modest about his own considerable achievements,

with a strong sense of humour and a charming manner.

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

He accepted others as people who mattered, always keen to know about them and their families.

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

He carried his responsibilities lightly but was always well aware of the possible damage to the NHS and the standing of the medical profession that could stem from ill-considered decisions made within government.

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones


The Guardian’s obituarist for this dreadful old man Yellowlees was Dr Liz Shore. Dr – subsequently Baroness – Liz Shore was Yellowlees’s close colleague, one of the most senior Gov’t Medical Officers herself throughout the 1960s and 70s. Liz Shore was a good friend of Richard Crossman, facilitated the Westminster Paedophile Ring and was one of many who ensured that questions about Dafydd and Gwynne were never answered or ideally even asked. Baroness Liz was married to Peter – later Baron Peter – Shore, the Labour MP for Stepney, 1964-74, Stepney and Poplar, 1974-83, Bethnal Green and Stepney, 1983-97. Shore was in the Commons assisting Dafydd’s partner gang in the East End while the Docs at the Royal London Hospital did the biz medically.

See the source image

The Krays – Shore’s constituents – and Lord Boothby were running the good old fashioned crime at street level and Joe Simpson, bent Commissioner of the Met, 1958-68 – an old Oundle boy who studied at Manchester College of Technology and was a member of Gray’s Inn, with Mars-Jones  – worked hard to ensure that the outrage wasn’t stopped. Shore was the constituency MP of my friends who went to live at Bethnal Green after they graduated from Stirling and found themselves targeted by heavies (see previous posts eg. ‘The Turn Of The Screw’). I was targeted my a multiple rapist who had recently been released from jail on four or five consecutive occasions when I got off of the tube on my way to their place. After I began blogging, I was told that these things were all gifts from the Gang.

Peter Shore was the son of a Merchant Navy captain and attended Quarry Bank High School in Liverpool

See the source image

and, from there, went to King’s College, Cambridge where Shore was a member of the Cambridge Apostles, which was usually an introduction to working for the security services. Eric Hobsbawm and the Cambridge spy ring were Apostles.

It was Peter Shore who ordered Ken Clarke to open the NHS purse in mid-1980s when Gwynne and Dafydd’s victims began dying from AIDS, to convert the old Mildmay Mission Hospital in Shoreditch into a Compassionate Non-Judgemental AIDS hospice where those rent boys who had fallen from grace could die With Privacy, the public never knowing how they had become rent boys by the age of 15. See ‘Apocalypse Now’.

The Mildmay was like Fort Knox and was also reputed to have hosted a Famous Celeb with AIDS. If that is true, I suspect that it was Freddie Mercury, the clues point to him. Whoever treated Freddie Mercury was remarkably discreet for a Top Doc, there were no leaks, none, until Mercury himself allowed it to be known that he was ill, days before his death.

When the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert was screened on TV on 20 April 1992, I was on the psych ward in Ysbyty Gwynedd, watching the concert with my friend who, like me, had a great deal of difficulty with Top Docs after she went to work in London and witnessed some interesting things. My friend worked with Marco-Pierre White and told me a number of things about Dafydd and indeed Diana that I didn’t believe at the time but I know now to be true. Likewise, I told her that Thatch was using Class A drugs prescribed by Harley Street Docs and she didn’t believe me…

Here’s Sir George:

See the source image

Peter Shore became Lord Shore in June 1997, six months after Ronnie Waterhouse – who for years was a neighbour of Paul The Cute One in St John’s Wood – opened his Inquiry.

Peter Shore died in Sept 2001; Top Doc the Baroness Liz outlived him by years…

Liz Shore’s dad was the historian Edward Murray Wrong (14 April 1889-15 February 1928), Vice-President of Magdalen College, Oxford (1924–25). Known as Murray, he was the son of Canadian historian George MacKinnon Wrong, and of Sophia Hume Wrong, daughter of the politician Edward Blake. He was the brother of diplomat Humphrey Hume Wrong. Like all his siblings and his father, Wrong was educated at the University of Toronto. Murray proceeded to Balliol College, Oxford, where he graduated in Modern History in 1913. Murray Wrong served as Vice-Principal of the Manchester School of Technology between 1916 and 1919, when he was elected an official fellow and tutor of Magdalen.

In 1915 Murray Wrong married Rosalind Grace Smith, sixth daughter of A. L. Smith, his old tutor and Master of Balliol College, Oxford. A.L. Smith had nine children, among them Miriam, who married the diplomat Sir Reader Bullard and his youngest daughter Barbara, who married neurosurgeon Sir Hugh Cairns. Sir Hugh Cairns was Of Gwynne, but died at the age of 56 just weeks before Dafydd began his training at Liverpool.

Sir Hugh William Bell Cairns (26 June 1896-18 July 1952) was the Top Doc who treated Lawrence of Arabia, (T.E. Lawrence, who was born at Porthmadog, not far from Croesor) for a head injury, six days before Lawrence died from the injury and caused Cairns to study the positive effects of the use of motorbike helmets.

Hugh Cairns was born in South Australia and spent his early childhood in Riverton, South Australia, where he received all of his primary school education. His secondary education was at Adelaide High School and Cairns then studied at the University of Adelaide. Cairns went to the University of Oxford to read Medicine and was President of the Balliol Boat Club.

Cairns worked as a neurosurgeon at the London Hospital and with Harvey Cushing at Harvard, before setting up the Nuffield Department of Surgery in Oxford, in which he became the first Nuffield Professor of Surgery. Cairns was a key figure in the development of neurosurgery as a specialty, in the formation of the Oxford University Medical School and the treatment of head injuries during WW II.

Sir Charles Evans trained at Oxford, which was where he met Cairns. While at the London Hospital and in Oxford, Cairns trained Joseph Buford Pennybacker, who in 1952 after Cairns’s death took over as Director of the  Radcliffe Hospital’s neurosurgery department, a job that Pennybacker held until he retired in 1971.

Cairns died of cancer at the Radcliffe Infirmary, Oxford on 18 July 1952. A ward at the Walton Centre, Liverpool, is named after Cairns, but sadly the Walton Centre’s Expertise Doesn’t Work on those who have spilt the Gang’s pints eg. Nerys.

Cairns’s colleague Joseph Pennybacker was the really culpable man re Sir Chartles Evans and Gwynne, because Pennybacker worked with Sir Charles and did not die in 1952 (the year before Sir Charles became an Everest Hero), Pennybacker continued and multiplied. ‘Plarr’s Lives Of The Fellows’ online tells the story:

Joseph Buford Pennybacker was born in Kentucky, on 23 August 1907… His early education was at Knoxville High School, Tennessee, before entering the University of Tennessee, graduating BA in 1926…. He followed the earlier colonial tradition of going from the American south to study medicine in Edinburgh, graduating with honours in 1930… He had a short period in general practice before being appointed house physician at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary and later house surgeon to Sir John Fraser. He decided to pursue a career in surgery and took an appointment as resident surgical officer at Grimsby and District Hospital, passing the FRCS in 1934 and subsequently being resident medical officer to the National Hospital for Nervous Diseases, Queen Square…

The National Hospital at Queen’s Square was a bit naff until Lord Snowdon’s best man Roger Gilliatt

See the source image

was appointed to a position there

See the source image

and from then on the National Hospital at Queen’s Square was Marvellous, as Marvellous as Lord Snowdon’s mother-in-law. For its age.

See the source image

He then decided on a career in neurosurgery and was appointed first assistant to Hugh Cairns at the London Hospital in 1935, subsequently moving to Oxford two years later when Cairns was appointed first Nuffield Professor of Surgery. During the war years he was appointed honorary consultant to the Military Hospital for Head Injuries at Oxford, took the MD degree in 1941 and when Cairns was occupied with military duties Pennybacker ensured the efficient running of the professorial department’s neurosurgical service. After Sir Hugh Cairns’ death in 1952 he was appointed director of the new, separate department of neurosurgery at the Radcliffe Infirmary

Where he hit the jackpot in May 1960

See the source image

and remained there until his retirement in 1971. After some years in Oxford he became a naturalised British Citizen.

During his tenure of the post of director of his department he attracted many visitors who were impressed with his diagnostic skills and his ability to perform neuro-surgical operations with greater speed than had hitherto been considered possible. He was able to complete a prodigious amount of work and made valuable contributions to invertebral disc surgery.

Which might well have been what I should have had years ago but D.G.E. Wood kept quiet about what was revealed by that X-ray in 1983. It’s not a problem Wood, I’m glad, I am still walking, indeed sturrying and even running if I really need to and I wouldn’t be if you and your friends had Helped.

See the source image

A special interest was the Society of British Neurological Surgeons which he served as treasurer and secretary although he declined the offer of presidency. He was consultant adviser in neurosurgery to the Ministry of Health and in later years undertook much administrative and committee work.

It’s A Case For Gwynne!

See the source image

He was awarded the Cross of the Royal Order of George I of Greece in 1966 and Commander of the Order of the British Empire a year later.

In 1941 he married Dr Winifrid Dean MB, ChB Manchester, DA, and they had one son. He retired from hospital practice a year early in 1971 and went to live in Tighnabruaich, Argyllshire where he pursued his hobbies of gardening and photography. His wife died in 1980 and he died suddenly on 27 March 1983 aged 75.

Well that was odd, Pennybacker died just as the murder threats towards Brown escalated, as D.G.E. Wood ignored the danger that Brown was in and worked on his goal of propelling me towards Gwynne…

Mary Wynch was on her way to the Master Of The Rolls.

To return to Peter Shore’s in-laws, Murray Wrong and Rosalind; as well as Shore’s wife Elizabeth Catherine aka Liz, their children included the historian Rosalind Mitchison and Top Doc Oliver Wrong.
Here are the highlights!

Rosalind Mitchison married zoologist John Murdoch Mitchison, son of Naomi Mitchison and the Labour politician Lord Dick Mitchison. Mitchison was the son of the Labour politician Dick Mitchison and his wife, the writer Naomi (née Haldane). The biologist J.B.S. Haldane was John Mitchison’s uncle, and the physiologist John Scott Haldane was his maternal grandfather. John’s elder brother is the bacteriologist Denis Mitchison, and his younger brother is the zoologist Avrion Mitchison.

John Murdoch Mitchison went to Winchester College and Trinity College, Cambridge, later becoming Professor of Zoology at Edinburgh University in 1963 after working there for a decade. Mitchison knew zoologists at UCNW. He was an academic advisor to the 2001 Nobel Prize in Physiology recipient Sir Paul Nurse.

Paul Nurse was working in cancer research when I was working in cancer research at Surrey University and when Tony Francis’s psychiatrist pal Peter Maguire from Manchester University suddenly received funding from the CRC to become a cancer researcher. Maguire and his colleagues – who were colleagues of Vincent Marks, my boss at Surrey University, brother of then then BMA Chairman Dr John Marks -perpetrated a big research fraud which was exposed in 1990. Prof Tim McElwain, one of the team, was found dead shortly afterwards. ‘Suicide’. All others involved in the fraud went on to hold very senior roles in cancer research, mental health research or the NHS, except for one junior researcher who changed career. See ‘Reports Of Death Were Greatly Exaggerated’ and ‘Apocalypse Now’.

Paul Nurse knew many of the people involved.

Sir Paul Nurse won the Nobel Prize in 2001, the year following the Waterhouse Report, the year that the Gang had hatched yet another Cunning Plan, what with Geoffrey Chamberlain ‘retired’ from the NHS and in a nice little number as a Lecturer in the History of Medicine at Swansea University – an institution dominated by Rhodri Morgan’s family – and living on the Gower at Edwina Hart Central with his wife Professor Jocelyn, Entertaining At Home as ever…

It’s Paul, the Cute One:


John Murdoch Mitchison’s Torygraph obituary – Mitchison died in April 2011 – had some gems:

Professor Murdoch Mitchison

Professor Murdoch Mitchison

 ...In the early 1950s, around about the time Crick and Watson were examining the structure of DNA…

While Crick and Watson’s theft of Rosalind Franklin’s work and their subsequent huge fraud/scam led to the awarding of a series of Nobels to other Brilliant Scientists who Knew What Crick and Watson had done and just put their orders in for the Brig Prizes. Eric Hobsbawm wasn’t a scientist, but he was working at Birkbeck with some of the key people who shafted Franklin and Hobsbawm was well-aware of what was going on; some of them were, like Hobsbawm, members of the Communist Party who were working for the British security services.

Thatch’s former tutor at Somerville, Dorothy Hodgkin, was one of those who climbed onto the bandwagon, which was easy because she was having an affair with John Bernal who passed Franklin’s work to Crick and Watson and then froze Franklin out. Hodgkin had loathed Thatch as a student and was on the far left herself, but after Thatch became PM, it was a case of doors opening on a scale previously unimagined. See previous posts.

See the source image

Mitchison wanted to study the mechanisms and kinetics of growth and reproduction… His research resulted in the publication of his classic volume, The Biology Of The Cell Cycle, in 1971, five years after he had been elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of London in 1978.

In the early 1970s Paul Nurse successfully merged Mitchison’s cell cycle work with genetic tools and methods developed by the Swiss scientist Urs Leopold to identify the gene in S. pombe which controls the progression of the cell cycle and cell division.

Later Nurse would identify the equivalent gene in the human genome.

Nurse has described the six years he spent as a postgraduate student with Mitchison in Edinburgh as “pivotal” for his entire research career: “He gave me both complete support and total freedom, spending hours each week talking with me but never instructing me what to do,” Nurse recalled. “An astonishingly generous supervisor, he never once was a co-author on any of the papers I produced during my time in Edinburgh. He considered, quite wrongly of course, that he had not made a sufficient contribution to justify inclusion.”

One of five children, John Murdoch Mitchison was born on June 11 1922 in Oxford, the son of GR “Dick” Mitchison, a barrister who would serve as Labour MP for Kettering during the 1960s,

There was a ring in Northamptonshire at the time, involving Top Docs from St Andrew’s Hospital and the Local Authority. Frank Beck, the social worker who was the centre of the Leicestershire ring – if one ignores Beck’s friend Greville Janner – who received five life terms on 29 Nov 1991 for hundreds of sexual assaults on kids in his care – spent his early career as a social worker in Northamptonshire, as did others in the Gang in north Wales; the Gang exchanged staff with the ring in Leicestershire.

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

Freddie Mercury died on 24 Nov 1991, five days before Beck was jailed. I was a patient in Ysbyty Gwynedd, while the Gang were thinking up yet another Cunning Plan. Roger Gilliatt died on 19 Sept 1991. I was admitted to YG shortly after Roger’s death. When Vanessa Poeppinghaus decided that Brown wasn’t worthy of NHS care in Dec 1991, Brown had a Leicester address and he gave that address when he was admitted to Ysbyty Gwynedd.

When the Drs Francis took me to the Royal Courts of Justice at The Strand in April 1991, they knew that Beck was awaiting trial and probably knew that Freddie Mercury was dying. Frank Beck was arrested on 14 April 1990. In May 1990, Gwynedd Health Authority took me to the High Court in Cardiff and there was yet again extensive perjury, directed by Andrew Park, the crooked Welsh Office lawyer and the ignoring of evidence of serious abuse of Empowered Service Users in north Wales. Immediately after the case, Andrew Park rang Alun Davies at Gwynedd Health Authority and followed this up with written instructions to Gwynedd and Clwyd Health Authorities re building a Complete Dossier Of My Activities in collaboration with Gwynedd County Council and their bent lawyer Ron Evans, in order to take me back to the High Court asap.

Gwynedd County Council had taken me to the High Court in Feb 1990 on the basis of extensive perjury, then took me to the High Court again weeks later and perjured themselves in an attempt to have me jailed. Gwynedd Health Authority took me to the High Court yet again at some point between June and Oct 1990 and once more there was perjury; all the documentation re that case has disappeared. See ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’ and ‘The Bitterest Pill’.

The Gang moved in on F yet again in 1990…

and the novelist Naomi Mitchison. His maternal grandfather was the Edinburgh physiologist John Scott Haldane, co-founder of the Journal of Hygiene, while an uncle was the geneticist JBS Haldane. His siblings, too, would achieve eminence in their own fields – his older brother Denis became a Professor of Bacteriology, while his younger brother Avrion is a leading immunologist. His sister Lois became an eminent sinologist, and his sister Val a radio critic and columnist.

Murdoch was educated at Winchester College, where he was a scholar, and Trinity College, Cambridge.

He embarked on a medical degree, but decided to concentrate on Zoology after becoming disenchanted with Anatomy – the conclusive moment came when he had to root around in a bucket full of limbs to find an arm he was supposed to dissect…

Called up in 1941, Mitchison worked in Army Operational Research. Among the weapon systems he studied was a whole range of “funnies” – modified tanks equipped with unusual equipment such as flails, flame-throwers or propellers; he delighted in throwing cold water on some truly bizarre ideas, such as hundreds of arclight-generating tanks flickering all in synchrony, supposedly to demoralise the enemy. He then trained as an officer, becoming a lieutenant aged 21 and captain at 22. He served with the Eighth Army in Italy where his job involved analysing mud in the rice fields of Piedmont to see whether it was safe for tanks to roll through.

After the German surrender he recalled helping to liberate a small town in the Veneto where, during an impromptu street party, he danced with the female “capa” of the local partisans, who had live grenades round her belt.

Demobbed in 1946 in the rank of major, Mitchison returned to Trinity, where he became a research scholar then a fellow. In 1953 he moved to Edinburgh University as a lecturer and later reader in Zoology.

In 1947 he married Rosalind Wrong, a historian who would become the foremost authority on the social history of Scotland and expert on the Poor Laws.

Mitchison was Professor of Zoology at Edinburgh for 25 years, from 1963 to 1988, a member of the university court for several years and Dean of the Science Faculty in 1984-1985.

So Mitchison knew about the neurology research that was being carried out in Edinburgh in 1988 by the Top Doctors and others that involved brain surgery on cats, cruel and unjustified. George Carman QC and Miranda found out about it in the 1990s, because Brown and I discussed it in the letters that we wrote to each other that were subsequently stolen and sold to Carman, Miranda’s former boss and the Digger.

He also spent a decade as chairman of the university’s major buildings committee, in which capacity he designed the planting around many new buildings.

His interests extended far beyond his own scientific field, and he was never content to be a merely passive recipient of knowledge. An interest in architecture

Did Mitchison perhaps know that architect who owned most of Cwm Croesor, Sir Clough, who had such strong connections to UCNW and the Huxleys, Haldane etc?

led him to design his own house at Ormiston, East Lothian…

Mitchison served as president of the British Society for Cell Biology from 1974 to 1977. He was also a member of the Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution and the Advisory Committee on Safety of Nuclear Installations.

We’re back to Dafydd, who was of course working in partnership with the Chief Traffickers Of Edinburgh, psychiatrists Henry and Sula Wolff, analyst Ronald Fairbairn, father of abuser and Tory MP Sir Nicholas Fairbairn and Ronald Fairbairn’s network some of whom knew/had trained with Sigmund himself.

See the source image

Murdoch and Rosalind (“Rowy”) Mitchison were keen travellers and walkers and generous hosts with a wide circle of friends. She died in 2002 and he is survived by a son and three daughters.

Rosalind and John Mitchison had four children, three daughters and one son.

Liz Shore’s sister Rosalind Mary Mitchison (11 April 1919-19 September 2002) specialised in Scottish social history and was affectionately known as “Rowy” Mitchison. Rosalind Mary Wrong was born in Manchester, educated at Dragon School in Oxford, then studied history at Lady Margaret Hall and went to Manchester University as an assistant lecturer, working under Sir Lewis Namier, in 1943, remaining there until 1953, throughout much of its We’re Protecting Gwynne, Clough and Clough’s Friends phase, which I will discuss further later in this post.

In 1953 Rosalind and her husband moved to Scotland. Rosalind Mitchison taught history, initially part-time, at Edinburgh until 1957. In 1962 she began teaching at the University of Glasgow where she remained until 1967, latterly as a full-time lecturer. Rosalind returned to the University of Edinburgh in 1967 and was by 1981 Emeritus Professor of Social History, a post that she held until 1986.

In 1994 she was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh. Her proposers were T. C. Smout, D Stevenson, T. M. Devine, Michael Francis Oliver, Charles Kemball and D. E. R. Watt. Rosalind died in hospital in Edinburgh on 19 September 2002.

Among Rosalind’s proposers was Tom Devine, one of the notorious Three Bastards of Scottish academia, one of the other Three Bastards being sociologist Steve Bruce. Tom Devine and Steve Bruce turned up at Bangor University to give seminars when the harassment of Merfyn the VC (a social historian) was reaching its zenith, having been ‘invited’ by the harassers, enabling Devine and Bruce to be as rude as possible to as many people as possible.

Rosalind’s proposer Professor Michael Francis Oliver (1925–2015) was a Welsh-born Edinburgh cardiologist. The Michael Oliver Theatre at Glasgow University is named in his honour.

Michael Oliver was born in Borth, near Aberystwyth and was educated at Marlborough College and then the University of Edinburgh, qualifying as a Top Doc in 1947. Michael Oliver spent some time working as a GP, but returned to Edinburgh to research heart disease. In 1958 he teamed up with Desmond Julian, then working at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, to set up Europe’s first coronary care unit, which came to fruition in 1966. From 1976 to 1989, Michael Oliver was Duke of Edinburgh Professor of Cardiology at the University of Edinburgh, becoming Emeritus on retirement. Oliver served as President of the British Cardiac Society, 198-84; as President of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh, 1986-88; and as Director of the Wynn Institute for Metabolic Research from 1990 to 1994.

In the face of Edinburgh Royal Infirmary and Edinburgh University being in receipt of Michael Oliver’s cutting edge Excellence re cardiology, one can only wonder why, on 9 October 1988, John Smith, the then Labour Leader, having suffered chest pains the night before, was examined at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary using an ECG and was told by the Top Doctor who examined him “Whatever it is, we don’t think it is your heart”, before Smith suddenly collapsed with a heart attack and was briefly unconscious. Smith spent three days in intensive care before leaving hospital on 20 October 1988 and made a full recovery. Smith changed his lifestyle by going on a diet, giving up smoking and taking up Munro walking. Smith lost three stone before he returned to Parliament on 23 January 1989. On May 12 1994, Smith had a heart attack in his Barbican flat and was taken to Bart’s where the doctors Ah were wonderful, Did All That They Could but Smith didn’t pull through.

Bart’s was under threat of closure/major cutbacks at the time and the Doc who Did All That He Could to save Smith, Prof Mike Besser, had on 28 April 1994, showed Smith around the A&E Dept, explaining that Fings Might Break if the Dept were to be closed as suggested; Smith was campaigning to Keep The Dept Open. As Fings Broke when the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary A&E and Bart’s A&E were both still open, one can only wonder why they wasn’t closed immediately, along with the rest of that bloated, pompous institution, that had been using the Fings Might Break line since the 1980s on every occasion on which someone dared fart in their general direction.

Bart’s dined out on Lord Snowdon’s grandfather having trained there and Snowdon’s father being a Governor of Bart’s. Unfortunately, there was also a well-developed ring of organised abusers at Bart’s that had existed at least since Dafydd’s pal Lady Juliet Bingley’s dad Reginald Vick had worked as a surgeon there in the middle decades of the 20th century. Anthony Clare spiced things up further when he was Prof of Psychological Medicine at Bart’s, 1983-88. Things really went with a bang at Bart’s because Dafydd’s mate Prof Linford Rees, originally from south west Wales, succeeded Clare in that Chair.

Read all about Linford in my post ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’, his naughty nude pics of his female patients that he ‘accidentally’ displayed in his lectures and seminars, his Handsome Celtic Head and his magical way with the patients by whispering compassionate noises in their ears in his Welsh Lilt. So that was how Linford persuaded his patients to let him photograph them naked!

Linford qualified as a Top Doc at the Welsh National School of Medicine at Cardiff, then spent many enjoyable years at the Maudsley,

including when Dafydd was Training there. Linford returned to Cardiff to work at Whitchurch Hospital – which had the distinction of giving the highest rate of ECT in Europe for no explicable reason except the obvious ie. the presence of Dafydd’s mate Prof Kenneth Maudsley and Linford in south Wales psychiatry – then it was back to London for Linford once more, to the Maudsley and Bart’s.

Linford was President of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, 1975-78; President of the BMA, 1978-79; a member of the GMC; and a Governor of University College Cardiff.

Can anyone see Gwynne, Dafydd and Mary Wynch hidden in the picture?

Brenda awarded Linford a CBE in 1978.

Linford was the son of a south Wales teacher – think George Thomas who was a south Wales teacher and a leading light in the NUT – and he married Catherine Thomas from south Wales, who died in 1993.

Linford had a famous daughter and son-in-law: the 1970s siren Angharad Rees (Demelza in ‘Poldark’) and her husband Christopher Cazenove, who graduated from ‘Upstairs, Downstairs’ imitation ‘The Duchess Of Duke Street’ to starring in ‘Dynasty’ with Joan Collins. Cazenove, like Nigel Havers, maxed out on his Poshness; Cazenove was born in Hampshire, brought up in Somerset and schooled at Eton. Cazenove’s brother was one of those Officers who rides the horses outside Buck House dressed in flamboyant gear, thus delighting tourists.

Linford utilised his daughter’s famous friends and colleagues as much as he could and the family residence in Purley hosted glam At Homes with Celebs. Rashmi Varma, one of Geoffrey Chamberlain’s colleagues at St George’s, lived in Purley. Varma was a Brahmin and would only address her research register by his surname because he was of lower caste than her. After the Chamberlain-Pearce scandal in the Dept of Obs and Gynae at St George’s, there was the Prof Stuart Campbell scandal, Campbell having replaced Chamberlain as Head of Dept. After the Stuart Campbell scandal, the Dept was closed, but obviously the Obs and Gynae service for the patients remained, it was just the Academic Dept that shut. Standards remained high and a few years later, Rashmi Varman made media headlines  when a patient accused her of forcing his wife to donate eggs to private fertility patients as a condition of receiving NHS treatment. Varma found herself in front of the GMC, but she was cleared. Varma maintained that racism and sexism were the basis for the White Man’s Attack, denounced  British medicine for Putting Her Through Hell and returned to India, after an absence of many years.

When I worked at St George’s, Mrs Varma was known as being rude, brutal, incredibly snobbish and was definitely involved with very questionable practice that entailed patients being routinely lied to and misled. No-one was quite sure what Varma was up to, because like her equally sinister colleague Stuart Stanton, she was a law unto herself, just gave the orders to the minions and did Brenda’s bit of Never Explain. Varma conducted all business in secrecy. Geoffrey Chamberlain and Varma hated each other and it was known that Chamberlain wanted to shaft Varma. I don’t know whether he was anything to do with Varma ending up in front of the GMC, but Varma’s bacon was undoubtedly saved as a result of what she knew about the malpractice of her colleagues at St George’s, including how they’d been used by Dafydd and the Gang to get me out of medical research.

In the wake of the series of scandals, King of the Swingers Sir William Asscher, Dean/Principal of St George’s,

oversaw a merger in the mid 1990s with what used to be Kingston Poly.

St George’s was described to me a while ago as ‘a den of elitist hatred’, which resonated with what I saw there. I can only imagine the trauma when Asscher cross-bred the institution with a former poly, who wanted the status to boost its Nursing Training facility. Adrian Bell was a graduate of Kingston Poly and I am told had something to do with this extraordinary merger…

See the source image

As for Mrs Varma’s neighbour Linford Rees, there was family tragedy after family tragedy. Angharad and Christopher’s son Linford died in a motorway crash on 10 Sept 1999, just after he had finished a Masters at Cambridge. The crash did not involve another vehicle and no reason for the accident was ever identified. Christopher died ‘from septaecaemia’ at Tommy’s on 7 April 2010; I suspect that he had AIDS or Hep B but that was never admitted and Angharad died from pancreatic cancer on 21 July 2012. Angharad and Christopher divorced in 1994, but remained on good terms. Angharad had a relationship with Alan Bates of Wrestling Naked With Ollie Reed fame and after the relationship broke up, married David McAlpine, the brother of Thatch’s McAlpine friend, on 29 April 2005.

Linford Rees died on 29 July 2004.

Michael Oliver was made a CBE in the 1985 New Year Honours. He was also a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh. Oliver was awarded honorary MDs by Karolinska University in 1980 and the University of Bologna in 1985.

Tessa’s husband David avoided prison as a result of a technicality after he took a bribe from Silvio

Tessa, the daughter of a Top Doctor, had previously worked as a children’s social worker for Lambeth, as a psych social worker at the Maudsley and as Deputy Director of MIND. David was John’s Brother, John being a very rich man and one of the biggest donors to New Labour; John was married to the late Mrs Mills and they were both friends with Little Nell:

Little Nell’s late husband Sir Henry was on the NCCL Executive when the NCCL was affiliated with PIE. Sir Henry was a judge so he must have known that having sex with children was illegal. But then Mrs Mills knew that as well but it didn’t result in prosecutions in north Wales. Except for prosecutions of F and me of course, for looking at Jackie Brandt in Safeways.

During all those years in Edinburgh, Michael Oliver must have bumped into the Fine Art Treasures Collecting High Society Edinburgh movers and shakers Henry Walton and Sula Wolff

and surely Oliver knew about Tam Paton, the gangster who managed the Bay City Rollers and ran a rent boy and drug dealing business, allegedly serving the Edinburgh elite. Paton was eventually jailed; there were many complaints against him re the sexual assault on boys/young men, including from one of the Rollers. Most of the complaints were ignored by the police, even one made years later by a former Roller in middle age who alleged very serious offences on the part of Paton, but just could not seem to make himself heard…

Oliver will have definitely known about Derek Longmuir, the Roller who, years after he had given up drumming along to ‘Shang-a-Lang’, trained and worked as an Angel in Edinburgh and was convicted of child porn offences. Derek had worked at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary. The Court was most understanding and the Angels Establishment was even more understanding, Derek was not struck off or banned from working with vulnerable people and once the fuss had died down, he returned to working as an Angel.

Michael Francis Oliver…was born in Borth… the son of Wilfrid Francis Lenn Oliver, a retired captain and landowner, and Cecilia Beatrice Oliver née Daniel, the daughter of a colonel in the Royal Scots. He was educated at St Peter’s, Seaford and then Marlborough College. After the death of his father when he was 15, his mother married again and Oliver’s stepfather, Hugh Leishman, a local general practitioner, encouraged him to study medicine.

A GP in Aberystwyth in the 1930s? Leishman will almost certainly have been Of The Ancient Gang

He went to the University of Edinburgh…He held house posts at the Royal Infirmary, Edinburgh, where he was inspired by Rae Gilchrist and decided to specialisein cardiology. From 1948 to 1950 he was in general practice in Leith and then returned to the Royal Infirmary…From 1961, he became a consultant physician in the department of cardiology, and in 1974 he was appointed to a personal chair. In 1978, he was made… professor of cardiology.

In 1964, with the cardiologist Desmond Julian, he established Europe’s firstintensive coronary care unit at the Royal Infirmary, and went on to found the university’s academic department of cardiovascular medicine. From the early 1950s he began to study cholesterol and lipoproteins and their role in endocrine and heart diseases. In 1954, he showed that patients with coronary heart disease had higher concentrations of cholesterol than an age-matched control group. He went on to lead some of the earliest controlled trials of cholesterol-lowering drugs, including a 1963 study of clofibrate. While he found that healthy middle-aged men who took the drug were less likely to develop non-fatal cardiac problems, the overall rate of fatal incidents did not improve and those on clofibrate were shown to have aslightly higher risk of dying from non-cardiovascular causes. He concluded that pharmaceutical efforts to reduce cholesterol might lead to adverse biological changes.

His view changed following the development of statins. In 1994, a major study of the statin simvastatin showed health benefits in patients who already had heart disease. Oliver co-authored an editorial urging the use of the drugs to lower patients’ cholesterol, but he remained sceptical about the benefits of lowering cholesterol in people with moderate cholesterol concentrations. Later he cautioned against the over medicalisation of elderly patients; when he was 82 he wrote an opinion piece in the British Medical Journal warning of over diagnosis and treatment (‘Let’s not turnelderly people into patients’ BMJ 2009 338 873).

After he retired from his Edinburgh post in 1989 he moved to London as director of the Wynn Institute for Metabolic Research at Imperial College London and an honorary professor at the National Heart and Lung Institute.

When I was working at St George’s, May 1989-Dec 1990, Chamberlain’s lackey the High Society fuckwit Dr Cathy Wilson and Cathy’s aggressive, unpleasant overprivileged research assistant, Mandy Leigh, who spent every conversation dropping the names of her aristocratic friends or that of Will Travers (of ‘Born Free Foundation’ fame), were working in collaboration with the National Heart and Lung Institute. As with all Cathy and Mandy’s research, there was no transparency, ethical considerations and even laws were flouted regularly and there was much scepticism by saner people as to the value of whatever was being ‘researched’.

The zenith of Mandy’s contribution to Advances in Medical Science was her making loud croaking noises every time that a Yugoslavian Doctor on a sabbatical at St George’s entered the tea room, the Doc in question suffering from an endocrine condition causing distortion of her voice. Mandy fondly used the moniker ‘Eaglet’ for the Yugoslavian doc. Mandy and Cathy were er endocrine researchers. Cathy treated the visiting Doc so badly that one morning after she arrived at work she told Cathy ‘I cannot sleep at night because you are so harsh to me’. Cathy told us all that she ‘felt a bit guilty’ so tried to be a bit nicer. The culmination of Cathy Being A Bit Nicer was inviting the Yugoslavian Doc to a party at Cathy’s palatial residence at Notting Hill Gate – neighbours included Lady Antonia and Swearing Harold –  and getting pissed and screaming abuse at the Yugoslavian Party Guest. During her sabbatical at St George’s – the Yugoslavian Doc’s employers sent her to St George’s as a Privilege because as any fule kno, British Medicine Is The Best In The World – the Yugoslavian Doc was amazed to be told by Malcolm Pearce that Edinburgh was The Finest Centre of Medicine In The UK, not London. Cathy confirmed this and the Yugoslavian Doc determined to recommend Edinburgh Medicine to her colleagues at home.

There was another Yugoslavian Doc working with Chamberlain’s team, to whom Malcolm referred as ‘My Yugoslavian Boris’ ‘who’s a very nice bloke but smells of pigshit’.

Cathy was a member of her local literary society and dinners were enjoyed with, among others, Salman Rushdie – he was in hiding after the Fatwa, but Cathy knew where he was – and Angela Carter.

Oxford Blood By Lady Antonia Fraser

Lady Antonia, daughter of Frank Pakenham aka Lord Longford and relative of Harriet Harperson, was along with her first husband Sir Hugh Fraser and the rest of their extended family and friends, colluding with Dafydd, Gwynne et al (see ‘Comedies Of Menace’). Lady Antonia was a colleague and friend of Bertrand Russell’s son, Conrad Sebastian Robert Russell, 5th Earl Russell (15 April 1937-14 October 2004), one time aspiring Labour politician and subsequently a Liberal peer. Conrad succeeded to the earldom on the death of his half-brother, the 4th Earl John Conrad Russell, on 16 December 1987, six months after Ollie Brooke was released from prison early and just as I resigned from that bum deal with the CRC at Nottingham University, where I was working with Harriet, daughter of Sir David Fell. Both sons were named after Bertrand’s  great friend Joseph Conrad, who was also the 4th Earl’s godfather.

John Conrad Russell, 4th Earl Russell (16 November 1921-16 December 1987) was the eldest son of Bertrand Russell and his second wife, Dora Black. John succeeded to the earldom on the death of his father on 2 February 1970. John Russell was educated at Dartington Hall School, the University of California, Los Angeles and Harvard University. Upon leaving Harvard in 1943 John returned to Britain and enlisted in the RNVR. Russell had a distinguished early career, working for the FAO among other organisations, but in later life he was diagnosed with schizophrenia. This made John the only person in the UK to be denied the vote on two counts, first, for being a peer and, second, for being insane.

John Russell certainly experienced great distress in mid-life; he frequently expressed his rage with his father and one of the sign’s of John’s Insanity was his assertion that Bertrand was a wicked old sod who was having an affair with John’s wife. After many How Very Dare Yous, it transpired that on that matter at least, John was correct. It was those Wicked Delusions of John’s that led to one of Russell’s periodic demands that John should be Certified. At one point John seemed to have acquired a Top Doc who, unlike so many, didn’t simply follow the orders of ‘Russell’, as the Earl Russell signed himself when he wrote Important Letters; the Top Doc observed that John was doing quite well at that time and that he believed that his lifelong very bad relationship with Russell had contributed to John’s distress. This is of course a standard line from many Docs in certain circumstances, but John himself identified Bertrand Russell as the problem. Furthermore, there didn’t seem to be other people who were also an enormous problem named by John who then reassured everyone that ooh no, it wasn’t them, it was All John’s Dad.

Everyone who was around John as a child confirmed that Bertrand Russell had conducted some truly odd and cruel experiments on John for years, far in excess of the usual Pioneering Methods commonly tried out on the firstborn by enthusiastic first-time parents.

When Russell demanded that people should be Banged Up, the legal niceties were handled by Russell’s solicitor Theodore Goddard.

John Russell was married on 28 August 1946 to Susan Doniphan Lindsay, daughter of the poet Vachel Lindsay. They had three daughters: Lady Felicity Anne Russell (born 2 September 1945), Lady Sarah Elizabeth Russell (born 16 January 1946) and Lady Lucy Catherine Russell (21 July 1948-11 April 1975). Neither Sarah or Lucy married or bore children; Felicity had one daughter, Rowan. Just like their dad and mum, the three daughters suffered from Mental Illness, Bertrand being plagued by Mad Relatives.

Lucy was Bertrand’s favourite grandchild and lived with Bertrand near Croesor, after Bertrand had gained custody of Lucy – by the use of Theodore Goddard of course – by emphasising that her Mad Dad and Almost As Mad Mum were unsuitable to bring her up. As a teenager, Lucy complained about the way in which her grandfather ‘kissed’ her. When Lucy left home for university she acquired a boyfriend of whom Russell disapproved, so Russell cut Lucy off, emotionally and financially. In 1975, at the age of 26, Lucy was found on fire in the forecourt of a church near Penzance and subsequently died. The Top Docs who knew Lucy talked about her being A Schizophrenic, her friends maintained that she was having a hard time and no-one helped and Bertrand told everyone that Lucy set fire to herself while protesting in the cause of world peace. Lucy, who grew up on the turf of Gwynne and Dafydd who Helped Schizophrenics, was not alive to give her version of events, which would have been of great interest to those of us who knew what Gwynne and Dafydd did to people.

Eric Hobsbawm still had his second home at Croesor when Lucy lived nearby and then combusted in Penzance.

In my early encounters with Tony Francis, he told me that sex between family members was so common that Freud did not believe his patients when they had recounted such experiences to him. One of Freud’s most famous cases is of course The Case Of Dora, one of the many Mad Young Women whom Freud encountered.

The Case Of Dora has been interpreted and analysed by many people in many ways. I am more interested in the Case Of Dora Carter, who worked as Tony Francis’s secretary and lied to the police as well as to other people about Brown and me.

Dora Carter knew that Tony Francis used his discussion of Freud to try to persuade me to name innocent people as sex offenders. I was told by other patients that Tony did this to them as well. For years I presumed that Tony was adhering to tired old stereotypes and clichés; when I finally gained possession of my medical files I realised that something far worse was happening.

Since I began this blog I have been told repeatedly ‘It was a set-up from the beginning; someone was to be smeared and destroyed for political reasons…’

Which might be why Wood and Gwynne tried exactly the same ploy as Francis but so much more ham-fistedly that I confronted them, so the better social skills of Francis were then called upon. An unknown person recorded all of those bizarre consultations and knew exactly what was happening, but at no time were Brown and I (or indeed any other targets) supported when we wrote to the authorities and dissected the nonsense, the discredited psychoanalytic theory and indeed raised our concerns about the forged documentation, the lies, the threats…

Maurice Macmillan died suddenly in Westminster on 10 March 1984, ‘following a heart operation’. I had just encountered Gwynne. Maurice, son of Supermac, had swindled my father which caused him to go bankrupt in 1963, a few months after I was born. As my father’s financial difficulties became unbearable, a letter arrived for him at his farm in Devon, from a Posh London Solicitor of whom he had never heard, Theodore Goddard, asking father to meet solicitors from Goddards because if he did so, he would ‘hear of something to his benefit’. Father was surprised when he did meet Goddards to find out that they knew the details of his financial problems and that he was planning to sell his farm. He was told by Theodore’s men that he didn’t need to do that; they offered father the asking price of his farm in return for him and his family moving out and allowing their ‘client’ the use of the farm for some months although he was to ask no questions and then we could all could move back in again and he could carry on farming…

I was told that father knew that he was dealing with complete and utter crooks, so he refused the deal and went back home. He put his farm up for sale and as he was packing up, two flash men arrived from Theodore’s firm, who literally had cases of used notes with them and began telling father that he was a bloody idiot not to accept their offer, which was still open.

Father decided that gangsters were best avoided

and went ahead with the sale and got a job on another farm miles away from Somerset, after a huge row with my grandfather (who wanted to buy the farm himself and pay father as the manager). That was how my father ended up working on a farm in Hampshire owned by a friend of Lord Denning, with Lord Denning living just down the road from us.

See the source image

It was remembered that not long after father’s extraordinary encounters with Gangsters Sent By A Posh London Solicitor, the Great Train Robbery occurred and when the robbers hideout was found it was a farm with similarities to my father’s farm in Devon, but nearer London. I was familiar with this anecdote but I dismissed it as rather Grassy Knoll, until I had a good read of the finer details of the Great Train Robbery and discovered that the insider who fed the gang crucial information was a solicitor’s clerk and it was accepted that far grander bent professionals had organised the robbery, who were never identified.

Much dosh was never recovered from the Great Train Robbery  – remember those missing election expenses of Mr Thrope when a hitman alleged that he’d been paid to kill Norman? –  and Ronnie Biggs in particular got away with a great deal for a small time Tea Leaf in terms of defying extradition orders, making use of Top Docs’ Expert Opinions to assist his cause etc. Then I discovered that dear old Dafydd had links with street criminals in London as well as bent lawyers and politicians as long ago as the 1960s. Dafydd and his network were in business with rockers and people in the film industry.

Ah Ronnie Biggs is a Folk Hero really isn’t he?

Ronnie Biggs began hanging out with the Sex Pistols in the run-up to Mr Thrope’s appearance at the Old Bailey. Phil Collins played Buster, the cheeky Cockney with a heart of gold and Julie Walters his wife who missed her mum when they fled to South America so they came back home again, in the film released in 1988. I was working for Vincent Marks at Surrey University in Guildford as the time; Phil Collins had a gran living near me at Godalming and used to visit her. Collins went to Charterhouse, the public school near Godalming.

Michael Biggs was a Godalming-based businessman who seems to have been involved in making my father’s life as difficult as possible from 1988 onwards as a result of Ken Clarke’s battle with Vincent’s brother, Dr John Marks, the Chairman of the BMA at the time, in which I was used as a football by both gangs of criminals. See eg. ‘Jennifer’s Diary’. CHECK

When Ronnie Biggs starred with the Sex Pistols, it was emphasised to us teenaged fans that they did cosh the train driver yeh, but he didn’t die ’til ages later…. The recipients of the letter from Mr Goddard told me ‘Yes, because the driver sustained a head injury from which he never recovered. Head injuries don’t always kill immediately.’

The Gang coshed Brown in broad daylight in Nottingham after he confirmed in writing to Gwynedd Health Authority and verbally to Alwyn Jones my solicitor in Bangor that he heard Dafydd trying to bribe me. When ‘Buster’ was a box office success…

Anyway Ronnie and Reggie loved their mam as well, their friend Barbara Windsor always reassured everyone of that, including when Babs was a mourner at Violet Kray’s funeral. Ronnie and Reggie who were networked to Dafydd’s partner gang in London, Ronnie sharing Lord Bob Boothby as a sexual partner with many other people, including Dorothy Macmillan.

The Barbara, who was formerly married to gangster Ronnie Knight who was extradited from the Costa del Crime in DATE and subsequently jailed CHECK, has recently developed a rare variant of Alzheimer’s, in which the only symptom is Babs giving interviews to the media in a quiet voice, rather than in a loud raucous Cockney accent accompanied by that laugh that she did when Sid James slapped her bum or her bra flew off.

I have now been given sufficient info to take a stance of ‘Wow, this does seem to have been likely…’. It seems that Dafydd knew what the score was before I ever met him

and Tony Francis gained info at some point. The henchmen didn’t seem to know even part of the picture let alone the whole. I don’t think that Gwynne did either; Dafydd was Mr Big.

It is a great shame about the many people who died isn’t it Douglas?

Maurice Macmillan served on Kensington Borough Council, 1949-53, which will have brought him into contact with St George’s Hospital and much else. Maurice served as the Tory MP for Halifax, 1955-64. I’m not sure when Maurice’s activities with regard to swindling farmers were exposed in the press, but they were; not that any farmers were compensated.

Shirley Summerskill, the Labour candidate, took Maurice’s Halifax seat in 1964 and held it until June 1983. Shirley was famous as the Nice Lady Doctor who was the daughter of that Nice Lady Doctor, Edith Summerskill. Edith the towering figure among Pioneering Women In Politics and In Medicine as well… Shirley was fully on board with the Westminster Paedophile Ring, as  well as with Dafydd and Gwynne. Her mother knew about the earlier version of the same ring, but it was usually only Poor People who really suffered at the hands of the likes of Gwynne and contrary to popular belief, Posh Lady Doctors like Edith were much more concerned with the advancement of other Posh Ladies, not the Lower Classes who ended up in Gwynne’s clutches. Edith went to the Lords after serving an MP, so she was Of Dafydd’s era, while Shirley was facilitating the ring.

Shirley served as a junior Minister in the Home Office, 1974-79, under Home Secretaries Swinging Woy and Merlyn Rees, who both assisted the Gang in every way possible. Swinging Woy is legendary but Merlyn Rees is not as legendary re ensuring that the Swinging continued as he should be. Like Woy, Merlyn originated in south Wales. Merlyn didn’t hang around in south Wales for long, he is associated with Yorkshire rather than south Wales. Merlyn studied at the LSE during the era when Richard Crossman’s friends were beginning their domination of that institution and subsequently served as a Leeds MP, 1963-92, never noticing Jimmy Savile or that the welfare infrastructure of Yorkshire was facilitating a huge trafficking ring closely affiliated to the Gang. Merlyn succeeded Hugh Gaitskill’s Commons seat, after Gaitskill died suddenly and unexpectedly, resulting in Harold Wilson becoming Leader of the Labour Party.

In mid-December 1962, Gaitskell fell ill with flu, but he was declared well enough by his Top Doctor to travel to the Soviet Union, where he met the Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev for talks. Upon his return to Britain Gaitskill’s condition deteriorated after he contracted another virus. On 4 January 1963 Gaitskill was admitted to the Middlesex Hospital – Calling Gwynne and Roger Gilliatt, Emergency, Emergency, Profumo’s Doings are about to explode in the House and splatter all of us – where, despite enormous efforts by Gwynne’s mates to save his life, Gaitskill died on 18 January 1963, with his wife at his bedside. He had died from complications following a sudden flare-up of  lupus, an autoimmune disease that flared up all of a sudden like, affecting his heart and kidneys. Gaitskill was 56 years old.

The abrupt and unexpected nature of Gaitskill’s death led to some speculation that foul play might have been involved. The most popular conspiracy theory involved a KGB plot to ensure that Wilson (alleged by the supporters of these theories to be a KGB agent himself) became Prime Minister. This claim was given new life by Peter Wright‘s 1987 book Spycatcher, but the only evidence that ever came to light was the testimony of a Soviet defector, Anatoliy Golitsyn, whose claims about Wilson were repeatedly investigated and never substantiated.

It wasn’t the KGB wot did it, it was Gwynne and Dafydd, with Advice.

See the source image

Merlyn was a Leeds MP when Gren Kershaw, an NHS manager from Leeds who was one of Saville’s crowd, relocated to the NHS in north Wales in 1983 and when Savile and Savile’s mate Alan Franey, an NHS manager at Leeds General Infirmary, were put in charge of Broadmoor in 1988. Merlyn will have known the contribution made to the Cleveland Child Abuse Scandal during 1987-88, by Leeds paediatrician Jane Wynne.

Merlyn entered the picture again in 1996, when the Jillings Report was totally suppressed and then pulped on the advice of the QC acting for Clwyd County Council’s insurers, Municipal Mutual, who also insured the North Wales Police. Merlyn was a Director of Municipal Mutual at the time. The QC who proffered the advice was Michael Beloff, friend and colleague of Cherie and Miranda. Beloff’s dad Lord Max was a friend of Ioan Bowen Rees, for years the CEO of Gwynedd County Council, including when Gwynedd CC were fitting me up. Lord Max was also mates with Thatch… See previous posts.

I had written to Michael Mansfield about Gwynedd social workers in 1993; Michael the friend of Arthur Scargill of Yorkshire, trade unionism etc.

See the source image

Merlyn Rees also served as N Ireland Secretary, 1974-76, so he colluded with Kincora, Dr Morris Fraser and other dreadful things as well.

Shirley Summerskill was married to a Cad, John Ryman, 1957-71.

See the source image

Ryman was a crooked barrister who served as the MP for Blythe Valley, Oct 1974-87; he sat for Labour until 1986, then as an Independent. Ryman was a serial swindler, particularly of women; he was married five times and had mistresses. Ryman was a stereotypical conman, his speciality was fleecing wealthy women of their property and savings, having chatted them up by posing as a Swiss banker or other such figures. In 23 April 1992 Ryman was convicted of defrauding two women out of their life savings and jailed for two and a half years.

On 18 April 1992, the Brighton Firebomb killed five witnesses to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. The man who allegedly confessed to starting the fire was killed days later, after a lorry hit him on a country road. Two of the survivors of the firebomb died within the following few years, one being found dead immediately after he gave evidence in Court against John Allen. See post ‘The Silence Of The Welsh Lambs’.

Ryman died in 2009. He was selected as a Labour candidate and elected as an MP for a constituency on the location of the same ring as was Shirley Summerskill’s constituency, after being married to Summerskill for 14 years. Shirley she knew the extent of Ryman’s criminality and deception, as did other people in the Labour Party, including Wilson and Callaghan, so one wonders why Ryman ever was able to become a Labour candidate. Harold Wilson was Party leader when it happened…

See the source image

The Labour politician Eddie Milne was the MP ousted by Ryman, in a civil war within the Labour Party. After all my research for this blog, it is becoming clear that even the politicians with the cleanest reputations are pretty dreadful and virtually all of them have at best kept quiet about serious criminality in high places. Eddie Milne it seems refused to do this and was ripped to shreds. Eddie was a Labour MP who fought that huge network of people involved in the civic corruption in the north of England, T. Dan Smith, Poulson and Andy Cunningham were just the tip of the iceberg. That lot were crime partners of Gwynne and Dafydd, that was why so much of the scandal was concealed; it led directly to the Westminster Paedophile Ring and the associated criminality.

See the source image

Eddie published a book along the lines of this blog in that he named those responsible and detailed what they had done; Eddie’s book was subjected to over 30 libel writs and it nearly bankrupted the publisher. No-one dared  do what Eddie did again. Andy Cunningham, who went to jail for his part in the corruption that was exposed, saw his son John rise to the top of the Labour Party and nearly become Party Leader.

Nice Lady Doctor Shirley Summerskill was in the thick of that lot. Shirley was educated at St Paul’s School for Girls, then at Somerville, Oxford

See the source image

and trained as a Top Doc at Tommy’s, as did Dr Death, although Shirley was some eight years older. Drs Anne and Peter Dally, the Dafydd of Harley Street who served as Ma’am Darling’s dealers (see ‘Little Things Hitting Each Other’), were at Tommy’s in the same era. Shirley and Dr Death were contemporaries in the Labour Party. Shirley was a leading figure in the Socialist Medical Association along with Uncle Harry and the Medical Practitioners Union, which became part of MSF. David Hole, the crooked MSF rep at St George’s, used his knowledge of the criminality in the institution for his own benefit, as did his friends, the other corrupt MSF reps. What MSF did not do was use their political muscle to protect patients and expose the serious organised crime that pervaded St George’s.

Shirley Summerskill’s constituency of Halifax was one of the hubs of the Yorkshire ring. Sadie Francis and her mother were both Top Docs from Yorkshire. Sadie’s grandmother, like Edith, was one of the first women doctors in the UK, but I don’t know where she practised. Edith was the Labour MP for Warrington, 1955-61 and a Minister in Attlee’s Gov’t. Edith died on 4 Feb 1980, which brings to mind the names Mr Thrope and Mary Wynch.

Sadie trained at Manchester University, down the road from Warrington, the location of Risley Remand Centre. All Warrington MPs colluded with the Gang re the horrors of Risley and protected Gwynne and Dafydd. Risley was planned and built when Edith was the constituency MP.

See the source image

Previous posts have discussed how Risley was undoubtedly an integral part of the plan of someone during Macmillan’s time as PM to ensure that north Wales became the forced underaged sex worker capital of the UK and shored up the forces that were already rendering Gwynne and Dafydd as untouchable. Risley was so appallingly bad and murderous that Dafydd offering 15 year olds from ‘care’ who had ended up in Risley after they had been framed by sex offenders a bed at Denbigh constructed Dafydd as a ‘kind man’ who ‘helps those boys when no-one else would bother with them’. I was told this again and again; I knew the rest of the picture that was never told.

Feminist heroine Edith definitely Knew and assisted Gwynne and Dafydd. Previous posts have discussed Edith’s biography. I will find out more and if possible blog about salient aspects of which I haven’t yet realised the significance. Edith was in the middle of criminality that exceeded the usual expectations of a Posh Lady of that era.

One Wicked Old Bag:

Edith was educated at King’s College London and was admitted to medical school at Charing Cross Hospital Medical School, one of the first few women to be admitted to medical school. Edith was one of the founders of the Socialist Health Association which spearheaded the NHS in 1948. Edith pressed for equal rights for women in the British Home Guard. In 1938 Edith initiated the Married Women’s Association to promote equality in marriage and became its first President.

Summerskill entered politics at 32 when she was asked to fight the Green Lanes ward in Harringay in the Middlesex County Council elections. She then served as a Councillor on Middlesex County Council, 1934-41. Edith became the Labour MP for Fulham West at a by-election in 1938 ‘thanks tothe working women’s vote’. When the Fulham West constituency was abolished for the 1955 General Election, Edith was returned as MP for Warrington, being attracted to the Gang’s territory just as David Maxwell Fyfe aka Lord Kilmuir and the security services were preparing the ground in north Wales.

See the source imageDafydd was at Liverpool Medical School, infiltrating the Tryweryn Campaign and making links with Irish Republican activists…

Summerskill was included in Clement Attlee’s Labour Gov’t following the election victory in 1945. She served as a Parliamentary Secretary in the Ministry of Food, and was later promoted to the Ministry of Social and National Insurance, heading the Dept. Edith was profiled asthe Minister of National insurance, however she was not a Cabinet Minister.

As well as her service in Gov’t, Summerskill also served on the House of Commons Political Honours Scrutiny Committee from 1967 to 1976.

Summerskill served as Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food, 1945–50 and as Minister of National Insurance, 1950–51. She was a member of the Labour Party’s NEC, 1944-58 and served as Chair of the Labour Party, 1954-55. Edith left the House of Commons in 1961 and was created a life peer as Baroness Summerskill, of Ken Wood in the County of London on 4 February 1961.

Edith was awarded an additional honour beinginitiated into the Order of the Companions of Honour (CH) in 1966.

Sister Hutt’s dad Prof Michael Hutt trained at Tommy’s and knew Shirley Summerskill and no doubt Edith. Sister Hutt won’t have missed the opportunity of networking with the Finest Feminist Heroes. Sister Hutt in who’s offices at the Welsh Assembly Alun Davies was sitting in 2002, with Sister Hutt’s officials, when Davies made eight or nine phone calls to the police demanding that they arrest me for telling his secretary, over the phone, that Davies was a fat idiot. The police told Davies that they would do no such thing, it was ludicrous, so Davies rang them back and told them that I’d threatened to kill him and he was in fear of me carrying out my threat imminently. I was sectioned, in the Hergest Unit in Bangor at the time, as Davies knew.

Sadie had been my Top Doc, told me that she’d support me in every way possible, until Tony Roberts arrived, told me that Sadie had refused to treat me because she was terrified of me and he was now my Top Doc, me being Dangerous. I was discharged from Hergest by Roberts as soon as the injuries that I had sustained from an assault by four Hergest staff had healed and within four hours was arrested and charged with threatening to kill Alun Davies. Perjury on the part of some eight Hergest NHS staff and a police officer followed. I have the documentation… It also confirms that Sadie was not terrified of me.

There are so many ways in which the paths of Sadie’s family and the Summerskills crossed that these two families of successive generations of women Top Doctors from the same region of the UK must have known each other, absolutely. Tony Francis seemed to be quite close to Sadie’s family; he visited them frequently and Sadie’s mother’s art work was hung on the walls of the Francis residence in north Wales. Sadie’s mother qualified as a Top Doc but soon became an artist rather than a Doc.

Tony and Sadie relocated to work in north Wales from Manchester in 1983, just as Shirley Summerskill stepped down from the Commons.

Shirley’s nephew Ben Summerskill was CEO of Stonewall, 2003-14. Stonewall gave the Betsi Health Board awards for being an LGBT-friendly employer. When that goodie was dispensed by Stonewall, a young gay man whom I had known when he was a nursing student in north Wales had been qualified some two years. He had as a student hated his placement at the Hergest Unit; not only did he and two of his fellow students repeatedly try to raise concerns with their tutors re the neglect and abuse of patients only to then be on the receiving end of insults and bullying from the Hergest Angels, but the unpleasantness directed towards him was overtly homophobic.

Ben Jeffrey Peter Summerskill (born 6 October 1961 in Kent) is Chair of The Silver Line

See the source image

and Director of the Criminal Justice Alliance, a consortium of 135 charities working across the GB criminal justice pathway.

See the source image

Ben has a twin sister, Clare, who is a performer.

Ben’s first career was in the restaurant trade. He was Operations Director from 1987 to 1990 with Kennedy Brookes, by then a publicly quoted hospitality company, responsible for 300 staff and an £18m turnover at the age of 26. Ben left Oxford before finishing his degree, was in a sound sleep for a few years until the year that his auntie’s mates were the subject of a serious complaint from me after they illegally imprisoned me and then Ben bagged the job as Operations Director of Kennedy Brookes. Ollie Brooke was released from jail early in the same year. What was going on?

Becoming a journalist in 1990, Ben rose to the position of Assistant Editor of The Observer newspaper after joining the organ in 2000 after having worked with Peter Hitchens and Peter Oborne as Media Editor for Daily Express Editor Rosie Boycott, (see previous posts) and the London Evening Standard under Editor and mentor Max Hastings (see previous posts) and other magazines.

In 2015 Ben won a Lifetime Achievement Award at the British LGBT Awards. In 2017, he was appointed by the UK government to the Council (Board) of ACAS, the Advisory Conciliation and Arbitration Service. Ben was first appointed a Trustee of the Silver Line in 2017. Esther always maintained that she only ever heard ‘rumours’ about Savile. Well she heard more than rumours about Ben’s auntie’s colleagues in north Wales, because after my unlawful imprisonment by the Gang, I wrote to Esther and supplied her with details of what had happened and what I had witnessed happening to other people. I wrote to Esther in the later part of 1987.

Kennedy Brookes are now operating as a finance company. Their registered office is in Rubery, Birmingham. Rubery is the location of the Reaside Clinic, run for so many years – including in 1987 – by Dafydd’s mate Robert Bluglass. Bluglass also held a Chair at Birmingham University; his wife Kerry was also a psych who held an academic post at the same University. By 1987, Tony Francis’s former boss at Manchester University, Ian Brockington, had been appointed to a Chair at Birmingham University as well. Brockington was offered that Chair in the mid-1980s, soon after the Drs Francis moved to north Wales. See ‘Ian Brockington’s Mischief’.

In 1988, Bluglass was appointed to Chair the whitewash into my complaint about the Gang. My complaints were ignored throughout all of 1987. After the Welsh Office’s Medical Ombudsman for Wales, Prof Robert Owen – another mate of Dafydd’s – replied to me and told me that he had organised an investigation and then told me that Bluglass would Chair it, there were more delays and cancellations. Bluglass finally conducted the whitewash in the summer of 1989. Tony Francis was called to give evidence at the hearing without me being informed. Bluglass did not investigate any part of my complaint relating to Tony Francis, although Francis’s ‘concerns’ and opinions re me received a good outing in Bluglass’s Report.

Documents only released to me decades later demonstrated that the Welsh Office lawyer Andrew Park was responsible for organising and concealing much of the criminality re the Gang.

Robert Owen was the Prof of Orthopaedic Surgery at Liverpool University. He trained at Guy’s and remained closely associated with Guy’s throughout his career. By 1987, Sister Hutt’s father had been Prof of Pathology at Guy’s for years. Rhodri, the AM for Cardiff West, 1999-2011, became FM in 2000 and inherited Sister Hutt as the Welsh Gov’t Health Minister from Alun Michael, who resigned as FM just as the Waterhouse Report was submitted to Welsh Secretary Paul Murphy, as discussed in ‘News From Sicily’. Rhodri served as the MP for Cardiff West, 1987-2001 – George Thomas’s former seat – and much of Rhodri’s time as MP was spent in the Welsh Office. As a younger man, Rhodri had worked for the Welsh Office. When the National Assembly for Wales was established, many of the civil servants appointed to senior roles in the Assembly had previously been civil servants in the Welsh Office.

Sir Jon Shortridge is one such shining example. Shortridge served as the Permanent Secretary of the Welsh Office from March 1999 and then of the National Assembly of Wales from its creation in May 1999. Shortridge became Permanent Secretary of the Welsh Assembly Gov’t on its establishment as a separate institution in May 2007 and left the post at the end of April 2008. Which was when Elfed Roberts, Chair of the NW Wales NHS Trust, was having me unlawfully arrested and refusing me NHS treatment and Edwina Hart was failing to deal with it. It was also when Fiona Irvine, an Angel who had worked in Gwynedd with the Gang

and subsequently bagged a lecturing job in the School of Nursing aka Healthcare Sciences was abusing her position at Bangor University.

In 2009, Shortridge was brought back as interim Permanent Secretary of the Dept for Innovation, Universities and Skills. Mandelson was the Secretary of State for that Dept and his right hand woman in the Civil Service was the daughter of Ron Evans, who for years worked as a lawyer for Gwynedd County Council. Ron was the lawyer who, in the wake of the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal, told everyone that what had happened was so serious and so inexcusable that none of them must ever say a word about it to anyone. I know that because Ron’s wife told me. She worked as a lecturer at Bangor University. She is (or was) also a magistrate. Documents in my possession with Ron’s signature on them detail perjury and conspiracy in an attempt to have me imprisoned. The names of colluding officers from the North Wales Police also appear on those documents. See previous posts for details.

The documents in my possession with Ron Evans’s name and signature on are from the late 1980s/early 1990s. Jon Shortridge joined the Welsh Office in 1984. I first complained about Dafydd and the gang to Keith Best, a Welsh Office Minister, in 1985. Between 1987 and 1988 Shortridge was Private Secretary to two Secretaries of State for Wales, Nicholas Edwards and Peter Walker. Throughout this time the sex trafficking gang caused havoc in north Wales and complaints about the NHS and social services were simply ignored.

From 1988 to 1992 Shortridge  was Head of the Welsh Office’s Finance Division.

Sir John undertook the Senior Management Review of the Welsh Office in 1995, the year that the Welsh Office told lies about Dafydd ‘retiring’, told the world that Denbigh had closed when it had not and when the Gang were once more mounting a Cunning Plan with a view to incarcerating me with Mr Savile or better still, lobotomising me. On 9 July 1995, Bing Spear, Dafydd’s mate in the Civil Service, the corrupt Home Office Drugs Branch Chief Inspector died. On 13 July 1995, Peter Morrison was found dead in his house. Brown was forced out of his job in the same month.

Then there was the cluster of deaths of Insider witnesses in 1995, including Peter Cook, Viv Stanshall and on DATE Aug 1995, Dafydd’s old mucker Lord David Ennals, who spent his career facilitating organised abuse as an MP for Dover, for Norwich, as Callaghan’s DHSS Secretary and of course during all that work that Ennals did for MIND. David Ennals also served as Chairman of the Anti-Apartheid Movement when Mr Thrope was involved with the AAM. Ennals’s brother John also served as Chairman of the AAM and his other brother Martin spent years leading Amnesty International. Sir Paul Ennals, David’s son, was Chief Exec of the National Children’s Bureau, which, like the NCH, has been colonised by abusers and those who facilitated abuse for many years and held many roles re children and young people after Miranda became PM.

Shortridge was appointed Director of Economic Affairs in 1997, with responsibility for establishing the National Assembly for Wales.

So Sir Jon, did Ron Evans tell you as well to never to say a word to anyone because what happened was so serious and inexcusable? And how exactly did the delightful Fiona and Stuart Irvine let you know that they had all the shit on you and that they’d both like Chairs at Glyndwr University once you became Chancellor, after students and staff at Bangor University had threatened to sue because of Fiona and her nasty bullying ways and in return Fiona told the HR Dept at Bangor that she’d bring a counter-case against Bangor University?

It was the old story. Everyone was going to play Sue Merfyn And Win Bingo. Fiona bagged a Chair at Glyndwr, then at Liverpool John Moores University just when I was sending evidence of serious crime in the north Wales NHS to Edwina Hart, begging her to sort this out… No, Edwina didn’t.

Here’s the former Chancellor of Liverpool John Moores with a friend of Geoffrey Chamberlain’s:

One of the PhD students at Bangor who was driven to serious clinical depression by Fiona knew me well and I was with him when Edward Evans, one of the HR staff at Bangor, asked him not to bring a grievance against Fiona because ‘she’s not a nice lady’ and would make counter-allegations. When I was an undergrad Edward had been a technician at UCNW. Edward was one of the many who knew about Gwynne and That Girl Who Complained About Him.

Edward’s wife Mu had for years worked as a secretary in the School of English. Mu had been there when the English lecturer Dave Nunn had a manic depressive breakdown, was forced out of his job and ended up on the scrapheap at the Hergest Unit with the rest of us. Dave was the patient whom Tony Francis attempted to have sectioned on the day in Nov 1994 when F and I took the copy of Dafydd’s crazy High Court injunction into the Day Centre and let Dave read it.

Dave started quoting from Dafydd’s mad affidavit as he was ‘assessed’ by the Independent Psychiatrists – Dafydd discussed his anus and Dave knew about the baby doll nightie with nae panties as well – and the Independent Psychiatrists refused to section him. Dave disappeared some two weeks later, saying that he was going on holiday to the Alps. No-one ever saw or heard from Dave Nunn again.

The PhD student who crumbled under Fiona’s dreadful conduct had great difficulty obtaining mental health care. He then was threatened with eviction by Gwynedd County Council, so my former PhD supervisor paid his rent arrears to ensure that he wasn’t made homeless. Some weeks later, the PhD student was visited at home by armed police no less

and then he received a visit from Dyfed Edwards, Leader of Gwynedd County Council, who, the PhD student told me, told him that ‘They [ie. me and those supporting me] won’t win this and when they lose your life won’t be worth living’.

There was a happy ending. The PhD student rang my lawyer, told her that he was withdrawing the statement that he had made in support of me re witnessing me being threatened and unlawfully arrested and was instead providing a statement in support of the NW Wales NHS Trust.

He then hacked into my e mail account, downloaded hundreds of e mails and shared them with many people who did not wish me well. Although he hadn’t finished his PhD – funded by the Welsh Language Board – the Welsh Language Board offered him funding to begin another PhD and the School of Education at Bangor University gave him a part-time lecturing job. He is currently on secondment with the Welsh Gov’t. He still hasn’t finished his PhD all these years later, but who needs to actually achieve anything when

Threatened by policemen wielding guns??? Terrorised by Gwynedd County Councillors? Refused NHS treatment when really quite ill? Bullied into the ground by EVERYONE but Merfyn? It’s Easy! You just play Sue Merfyn and Win Bingo!!! Prizes, Prizes, Prizes! Here’s your job with the Welsh Gov’t…

Fiona’s PhD student boosted his chances of a Big Prize by being the son of Lucille Hughes’s secretary and one of the ambulancemen who used to drive the abducted patients under cover of darkness to Denbigh…

As for Fiona, after I began this blog, she became Professor and Head of Nursing at the Queen’s Medical Centre, Birmingham University. Bluglass’s and Brockington’s former habitat. Well Fiona remembers Gwynne and she knows who concealed Tony Francis’s crimes post-Gwynne…


Sir Jon was educated at Chichester High School for Boys, then St Edmund Hall, Oxford and then Edinburgh University.


Alun Michael succeeded Sunny Jim as MP for Cardiff South and Penarth in 1987 and was AM for Mid and West Wales, 1999-2000. Michael was born on Anglesey – when Lady Megan Lloyd George was the MP, only to be replaced by the Windbag’s mate Cledwyn Hughes soon after – and went to Colwyn Bay Grammar School. Michael worked as a journo and youth worker, after graduating from Keele University. Keele that employed a number of academics who concealed organised abuse in Staffordshire, a ring linked to the Gang. When the Gang’s friend David Hunt was Welsh Secretary, he accused Alun Michael of taking orders from NUPE (see ‘The Paedophiles’ Friends Of Cardiff North’). NUPE members and even shop stewards abused kids in care in north Wales, as detailed in previous posts.

Michael Mansfield is a graduate of Keele University and is of a very similar age to Alun Michael. Mansfield served as Secretary of the Students’ Union at Keele, was sociable and will have known Alun Michael somehow.

Not only did Esther not know about Jimmy Savile, but she didn’t know about her former bedfellow, Tory MP Nicky Fairbairn, the drunken, wife-beating all round git who was later named as a child molester. Nicky the son of Ronald Fairbairn, Eminent Edinburgh Top Doc and analyst who knew the Gang.

Sir Jon Shortridge, graduate of Edinburgh University, with another good friend of the Gang, Trevor Jones (see post ‘A Vampire At Glyndwr University!’):


Some universities do ‘ave ’em: When Glyndwr University (formerly NEWI and before that Cartrefle College, the institution under the control of Lucille and Dafydd that handed out Qualifications to the batterers and molesters who staffed the children’s homes of north Wales, as discussed in previous posts) came into being, Sir Jon Shortridge was the first Chancellor. Sir Jon was followed by Lord Barry Jones, Lord Baz being a former teacher and then the President of the NUT’s Flint branch before becoming a Labour MP in north east Wales and joined the merry band under the Windbag. See previous posts. When Lord Baz stood down, Trevor picked up the baton…


Eccentric Judge James Pickles, who had a sideline in writing steamy novels and a column for ‘The Sun’, was of course a son and indeed star of Halifax. Pickles’s father, Arthur Pickles, was an architect and surveyor who became a property developer and later a Liberal member of the Halifax Town Council and ultimately Mayor of Halifax. James Pickles’s family were also involved in building and masonry: his great-grandfather worked on the construction of the Royal Courts of Justice on The Strand in London. His uncle was the radio presenter Wilfred Pickles

Pickles was educated at local primary schools, a prep school and then at Worksop College in Nottinghamshire. He read law at Leeds University and Christ Church, Oxford and was called to the bar at the Inner Temple in 1948. The Havers clan were members of Inner Temple, as was Mr Thrope.

Pickles practised as a barrister at Bradford, Yorkshire on the Northern Circuit, 1949-76, originally in the Chambers headed by Joseph Stanley Snowden. Snowden was educated at Sedbergh School and St John’s College, Cambridge. Ronnie Waterhouse was educated at St John’s Cambridge and was an enthusiastic member of the alumni association. Snowden married, in 1938, Agnes Enid Mitchell. They were not blessed with children.

Snowden was a member of Inner Temple. He joined the North-Eastern Circuit in 1925. He was Deputy Chairman, West Riding of Yorkshire Quarterly Sessions, 1960–71. Snowden was Recorder of Scarborough, 1951–71 as well as a Recorder and honorary Recorder of Scarborough from 1972–73. Jimmy Savile had a house in Scarborough and Savile’s friend Peter Jaconelli served as a Councillor and Mayor of Scarborough. Jaconelli owned and ran an ice cream business which was a front for him and Savile to abuse children. This was widely known in Scarborough. Joseph Snowden was Chairman of the Yorkshire and Lancashire Agricultural Land Tribunal from 1963–71.

Pickles became Head of Chambers in 1972.

Pickles was a Labour member of Brighouse Borough Council, 1956-62 and stood for election to Parliament in Yorkshire seats twice; as Labour candidate for Barkston Ash in the 1959 and as Liberal candidate for Brighouse and Spenborough in the  1964.

Pickles served as an Assistant Recorder of the Crown Court from 1963, and then served as a Recorder of Bradford, 1972 -76, when he was appointed  Judge on the North Eastern Circuit.

Pickles had three children, Roger and Simon Pickles, and Carolyn Pickles, an actress. Caroline appeared in Emmerdale on TV and most recently in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1. James’s sister, Christina Pickles, is also an actress, most famous for her role as an Angel in the hospital drama St. Elsewhere and for playing the mother of Ross and Monica in the sitcom Friends.

Pickles’s wife died in 1995. He died on 18 Dec 2010 and was survived by his three children.

See post ‘Judge James Pickles’ for more info…

Pickles appeared on ‘Have I Got News For You’ on 28 Oct 1994. On 4 Nov 1994 Dafydd obtained an injunction from Liverpool High Court – on the Northern Circuit – against me on the basis of a discussion about his anus, perjury and a description of a raspberry that F had blown down the phone at him months previously.

The MDU acted for Dafydd.

Harriet Harperson’s dad died on 13 Nov 1994; John Harman served as President of the MDU after he retired in 1972. John Harman knew Gwynne and Dafydd.

Bradford was host to organised abuse for generations that finally erupted in the scandal of the Bradford trafficking and drug dealing ring, which resulted in numerous men being jailed, nearly all of them of South Asian origin, usually employed as taxi drivers or in the takeaway trade. These three men knew all about organised abuse and trafficking in Bradford decades before those prosecutions and they weren’t South Asian taxi drivers or curry house owners ever bothered by the law:

A few more links. Stefan Kiszco, a man with learning disabilities, who lived in Rochdale was jailed in July 1976 for the 1975 rape and murder of 11 yr old Lesley Molseed who lived near Stefan. Kizsco was fitted up by bent police, bent Top Docs, bent forensic scientists and bent lawyers. They knew at the time that Stefan did not and could not have committed the crime. See previous posts.

One psychiatrist who gave Expert Evidence and lied about Stefan was Michael Tarsh. Tarsh was friends with Prof Hugh Freeman, a friend of Gwynne, Dafydd et al, who had worked in Manchester with the Drs Francis. Hugh Freeman dominated psychiatry in Manchester from 1961-88. Freeman was Vice-President of MIND in the 1980s, he edited the British Journal of Psychiatry, 1983-93 and established the British False Memory Society. Freeman became particularly busy on the national scene in the wake of Mary Wynch and me raising concerns. One of Hugh’s early triumphs was his role in founding Salford University. Hugh and Tarsh both retired from the NHS in Manchester in 1988 and left their retirement party ‘on a tandem bound for London’. I have not discovered yet exactly what those two got up to in London ‘in retirement’.

Tarsh I think must have died in 1993 or the first months of 1994; the Indie ran an article about his widow flogging Tarsh’s valuable collection of porcelain pigs in July 1994.

Freeman was a graduate of St John’s College, Oxford, along with Edward du Cann, John Betjeman, Kingsley Amis, Sir Idwal Pugh (see post ‘The Naked civil Servants’), David Lewis Davies (Dafydd’s mate from the Maudsley) and many more who collectively propped up Dafydd and Gwynne… Miranda was a later graduate of St John’s College, Oxford. Hugh Freeman died in May 2011. He didn’t act alone, Freeman was married to a psychologist, Joan Casket, who specialised in Gifted Children. Freeman and Joan had children who survived him.

See previous posts eg. ‘The Science Of Animal Behaviour’ for info on Freeman, who also began rewriting the history of he and his colleagues when so many of Dafydd and Gwynne’s mates became historians of medicine when the police investigations began.

David Waddington was the defending barrister at Stefan’s trial; Waddington did not question so many worrying matters that it is now assumed by many that he knew his innocent client had been fitted up. Peter Taylor was the prosecuting barrister.

Waddington succeeded Douglas Hurd as Home Secretary, serving 26 Oct 1989-28 Nov 1990. Waddington was in post as the Gang mounted case after case against me on the grounds of their perjury, including the series of High Court cases during 1990, the documentation relating to two of those cases having disappeared from my files. I have been told that one of those cases was followed by an unsuccessful application to Court to have me detained at Brenda’s pleasure with a view to having me effectively lobotomised.

I was working at St George’s at the time and in 1990, Tom Burns, a psychiatrist at St George’s/Springfield/Atkinson Morley Hospital admitted to me that he believed what I was alleging about the Gang in north Wales, that psychiatry ‘attracts disturbed people’ and it is ‘a big problem’. Tom then wrote to his friend Dr Nita Mitchell-Heggs, the bent Occ Health Physician for St George’s – who had trained as a psych herself – telling her that I was not psychotic but might have a ‘paranoid personality disorder’. When the Gang had me arrested months later in Dec 1990, Mitchell-Heggs contacted Tom once more for his ‘help’; Tom told her that he ‘didn’t have anything to offer’ me.

Mary Wynch was the subject of a TV programme – ‘Who Will Listen To Mary Wynch?’ Details – MONTH 1990 – Paxo’s ex-partner. Mary also featured in ‘The Spectator’ on DATE. See post ‘     ‘. That was the last time that Mary was mentioned in the media.

Tom wasn’t just waiting for me to be found dead, Tom knew that things could be unravelling. Greville Janner had been interviewed under police caution earlier in 1990 and his mate Frank Beck had been charged and remanded on bail. Thatch had just been deposed with the help of Tom’s Labour supporting Top Doc friends and colleagues and a police investigation into a possible VIP paedophile ring in north Wales and Cheshire had just begun. Tom later joined Prof Mark Williams at Oxford University’s Dept of Psychiatry and became an advisor to Miranda’s Gov’t on mental health; Tom was responsible for the disaster that are Community Treatment Orders.

I am so busy with this blog that I don’t have time to keep an eye on everything that I should. Thus, this offering from the website of the Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust had escaped me until now:

Tom Burns To Step Down From Trust Board

Tom Burns

Professor Tom Burns is stepping down from his role as a Non-Executive Director on the Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust Board after two years during which he has played a key role in helping establish our planned Institute of Mental Health Research.
See the source image
Tom, who is leaving for personal reasons, joined the Trust in October 2016
Two months after I began this blog
with previous experience as both a Non-Executive Director and Clinical Director in two mental health trusts.  
See the source image
He had worked as a consultant psychiatrist for 10 years before becoming a professor of social psychiatry, first at St George’s Medical School in London and then at the University of Oxford.
Trust Chair, Leisha Fullick, said:  “We have greatly appreciated having Tom on our Trust Board.  His enormous knowledge of mental health services and research into mental health has been of huge benefit in so many ways and it has been a great privilege for all of us to have worked with him. We are really sorry to see him go and we wish him all the best with his future projects.”
Professor Burns said: “I have been most fortunate to be a member of the Board at a time when the Trust significantly improved in Care Quality Commission ranking. 
See the source image
It was revealed in the early years of the millennium that only one area of England and Wales had a higher suicide rate for women than north west Wales; it was Camden.
“I was originally attracted to joining the C&I Board in helping set up an Institute of Mental Health Research. This work has developed very successfully and more rapidly than expected.”
See the source image
The planned Institute is a joint innovation with the Trust’s academic partners UCL, and will build on the Trust’s established reputation as one of the strongest academic mental health NHS trusts in the UK. It will provide a collaboration of clinical services, academic psychiatry, psychology and neuroscience.
Tom explained: “I feel that I have been able to provide as much support and insight as I can on this specific task and that now is a natural point to step down. I am delighted though that I will be continuing involvement as a member of the steering group of the new Institute.  
See the source image
“I wish the Trust every continuing success and will miss working with such a talented and committed group of people.”
See the source image
Jeremy Corbyn is robustly supportive of the Camden and Islington NHS Trust and was a member of an earlier incarnation of this disgrace.
It is expected that Professor Burns will step down at the end of December.

See the source image

This news item from Camden and Islington was not dated, so I’m not sure whether Tom has already left the Board or will be this coming December.

Tom is not a one-man band; he has a wife. Psychotherapist Eva Burns-Lundgren:

Eva Burns-Lundgren

Incontinentia Buttocks starred at the Oxford Literary Festival this year.

Tom’s friend Nita – who told me that Tom was ‘the loveliest man’ whom she knew – and Nita’s husband Peter (who was also a Top Doc) have both voluntary relinquished their licences to practice medicine. As has Shirley Summerskill. A Caroline Mitchell-Heggs however is working as a GP at Fir Road Surgery, Feltham, Middlesex. Caroline qualified at the University of London in 1987, the year in which Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane released Ollie Brooke from prison early. I suspect that Caroline is one of the daughters of Nita, Occ Health Physician  to the Westminster Paedophile Ring and colleague of Ollie. When Nita was trying to draw me into silly girlie chats with her re whether I had a ‘boyfriend’ and other Bridget Jones subjects, Nita banged on about her lovely daughters and how she had sent them to boarding school in Sussex for reasons THAT I JUST CAN’T GO INTO, NO, NO, DON’T ASK, but Ooh I feel guilty, I do, I do I do

See the source image

and I was down at that school EVERY weekend, EVERY weekend, although the Head must have thought that I was the craziest mum that they had…

But did the Head know that Nita was a people trafficker who ensured that abusers retained their very senior jobs in the NHS and whistleblowers were hounded out???

Fir Street Surgery is located at Feltham, as is one of the most notorious brutal young offenders institution, in which inmates have murdered each other. See the source image

Dafydd’s mate Bluglass presided over one Inquiry re the murder at Feltham of a vulnerable young man with Schizophrenia who had been arrested for a ludicrous offence. He was murdered by a man who had told the screws that if he was forced to share a cell, he would kill whoever was put in with him. The murder took a long while and the murderer ate the ear of his victim, who parents were horrified at Bluglass’s smearing of their son and exoneration of the screws who heard the killing and allowed it to continue. The victim’s parents were subjected to such threats after they asked questions that they moved house to a secret location.

See the source image

Tom Burns qualified at Cambridge in 1971, along with Neil Davies, Dafydd’s partner in crime at Denbigh. Neil is still registered with the GMC but ‘without a licence to practice’. Neil worked with Mark Williams who ended up at Oxford with Tom! Mark arrived at Oxford in the early part of the millennium – straight from Bangor – and then Tom joined the party. When I lived in Surrey, 1988-89, one of the GPs whom I encountered was Nigel Baldock. Baldock wasn’t as dreadful as the others, but he knew what had happened to me at the hands of the Gang and just kept out of it. Until he had a phone call from D.G.E. Wood, who just wondered if Nigel was the Baldock with whom he had been at Bristol Medical School… No, Nigel qualified at Cambridge, but Wood decided to make friends with him anyway… See previous posts. Nigel qualified at Cambridge in 1976 but he too has now voluntarily relinquished his registration.

See the source image

Goodbye Cruel World, it’s that cow again, we always knew that she has a black heart and Ooh what she said about poor Gwynne and Dafydd…

See the source image

It is indeed; when a Top Doctor voluntarily relinquishes their registration/licence, they cannot be investigated or disciplined by the GMC and their Good Name Remains Intact. Dafydd and Wood are still on the Medical Register with a licence to practice, so they must feel pretty bloody certain that their close working relationship with the Royal Lobotomist has rendered them bombproof.

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

David Waddington was a member of Gray’s Inn along with William Mars-Jones, St Helena and Michael Mansfield as well as Sir Malcom Pill, who presided over one of the High Court cases that the Gang brought against me in Cardiff in May 1990. Letters written by me detailing the most serious crimes on the part of the Gang were read by Pill and the two barristers involved in the case, Ian Murphy and Crispin Masterman, as evidence of my ‘harassment’ of people employed by Gwynedd Health Authority. That unsuccessful application to have me sent to live with Jimmy Savile was made to an unknown judge in Cardiff after the case over which Pill presided.

See previous posts eg. ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’ and ‘The Bitterest Pill’ for details of the High Court cases while Waddington was Home Secretary. One case, in Feb 1990, was heard in Leeds High Court although all parties lived in Gwynedd. The presiding judge was Sir John Kay, an old friend of the Gang, who practised on the Northern Circuit and knew George Carman and other Helpers. See previous posts…

Waddington served as a Lancashire MP, for Nelson and Colne, 1968-74 and then for Clitheroe, which evolved into Ribble Valley, 1979-80. The seat was succeeded by Nigel Evans, the gay Tory from Swansea who not only denied that he was gay until relatively recently, but appeared on TV in the 1990s arguing against lowering the age of consent in male gay relationships. It was on Kilroy wasn’t it Nigel? Or was it ‘The Time The Place’? F and I saw you, we took to watching those programmes because Dafydd and his mates were turning up on them nearly every week. Kilroy knew Dafydd, but I don’t know if John Stapleton and his wife Lynne ‘Let’s talk about bottoms, I’ve got bowel cancer and I’m Raising Awareness’ Faulds-Wood did.

Waddington  served as a Lord Commissioner of the Treasury, 1979-81, with Peter Morrison, under Chancellor Geoffrey Howe, Ronnie Waterhouse’s lifelong friend. Waddington was Minister of State in the Home Office, 1983-87

and after Waddington had spread his poison as Home Secretary, he served as Governor of Bermuda, April 1992-May 1997.

Waddington died on 23 Feb 2017, five months after I began this blog.

The Lancashire ring merged with the Cheshire/north Wales ring and the Yorkshire ring; Harold Wilson and Babs Castle were Lancashire MPs. Babs of the two proteges:

One reason why Stefan Kiszko spent years in prison for a crime that he could not have committed was because of the greater priority given to protecting a man called Cyril Smith who, sadly for Stefan, was his constituency MP. Jim Callaghan and Thatch also stalled and/or ignored pleas for help re Stefan’s case.

Not to worry, as David Steel knew, Cyril had only just ‘spanked a few bare bottoms’, so what was that to worry about.

Particularly when people had to go home to their constituencies and prepare for Gov’t.

Stefan was finally allowed to go home in April 1992.

Stefan’s case is considered to be one of the biggest miscarriages of justice in UK history. His appeal against conviction was dismissed on 25 May 1978 by Lord Bridge, who stated that there was no problem with the safety of the conviction. In Feb 1991 – when the Drs Francis had yet another go at me in the High Court in London, requesting that I should be imprisoned on the basis of the perjury – the Home Office agreed to a judicial investigation into Stefan’s case. The Home Secretary by then was Kenneth Baker, who had succeeded Waddington. I have been told that Baker played a role in the framing of F in 1986; by Feb 1991, the predators sent by the Gang were moving in on F…

Stefan was cleared on DATE 1991, yet he was still not allowed to go home. On 15 March 1991, Stefan had been transferred from prison to Ashworth under the Mental Health Act. Ashworth was run by the Gang and at the time the subject of the first of two Public Inquiries in the 1990s re the abuse of patients at Ashworth. The Inquiry into Ashworth underway when Stefan was transferred there was Chaired by Louis Blom-Cooper. Who had been Chairman of the Mental Health Act Commission when my complaints to the MHAC about the Gang were ignored. Blom-Cooper was Chairman of the MHAC when the MHAC colluded with one of the Cunning Plans to frame and imprison me…

Stefan was transferred to Ashworth the month before I starred at the Royal Courts of Justice in The Strand, although all documentation relating to the case has disappeared. I was definitely there though, St Helena was holding a big test case in the neighbouring Court and there were Wimmin Protesting, TV cameras, journos the lot.

The second Inquiry into Ashworth was led by Peter Fallon, assisted by Robert Bluglass. Bluglass’s task was to investigate the murder of a patient by an Angel. Bluglass was assisted in this by a Senior Angel from his own Reaside Clinic and a Senior Angel of Dafydd’s from Clwyd Health Authority. The Fallon Inquiry was absolutely damning about Ashworth, but the murders, beatings, sexual assaults and the paedophile ring being run inside the institution were all squarely placed on the fact that Dangerous Patients were housed there.

The second Inquiry had actually arisen from a complaint made by the parents of an Ashworth patient to Alice Mahon, the then Labour MP for Halifax. Alice, a former Angel, was Shocked and Disgusted at what Fallon and Bluglass had revealed was going on in Ashworth, including a little girl in the care of Bradford Social Services being taken into Ashworth ‘to visit a paedophile’ (staff member or patient one wonders?). Alice explained that she knew how difficult it was to deal with Nutters and this just showed what happens when people are Soft On Them. I’m not sure how much harsher the Angels could have been than beating the Nutters to death; boiling them in oil perhaps?

Alice starred on an old webpage that supplied the details of ‘175 Heroes of Bradford College’:

Alice Mahon

Determined political campaigner, Alice Mahon, lectured at Bradford & Ilkley College for 7 years prior to being elected as Labour Member of Parliament for Halifax in 1987.

Alice MahonAlice trained as a nurse but left to have a baby before completing her qualifications. She then worked as an auxiliary nurse for 9 years, becoming active in NUPE in 1972 and helping to set up their National Women’s Committee. As her eldest son went off to Oxford University aged only 17, Alice began a Social Policy degree at Bradford University, graduating aged 40. She then came to College to teach Health & Safety at Work and Trade Union Studies.

“I loved doing it. It was one of the best jobs I ever had. I used to tell mystudents ‘Give ‘em hell! Don’t let them get away with anything!’ I particularly remember that throughout the whole of the miners strike Maura, who worked at McMillan, and I stood on street corners collecting for the miners and stood on freezing the picket lines at Emley Moor at 5.30am every Tuesday morning.”

During the early ‘80s Alice had been elected onto Calderdale Council and gained a seat on the Health Authority. Standing as MP was a natural progression. “I was never a career politician and never planned to become an MP. Now many politicians map out their political careers while still at university. But if they don’t have life experience they cannot relate to the needs of their constituents and what they don’t know puts them at the mercy of the lobby groups. It was certainly a culture shock when I went to Westminster. I was told off in the House of Commons for having a Yorkshire accent! The Speaker, Bernard Weatherall was getting fed up of my constant questions and said ‘The Honourable lady would have receive better answers if she spoke the Queen’s English.’ Parliament gives you a voice and I was never afraid to use it.”

Alice stepped down from parliament in 2005 but continues to fight for causes she believes in. When she was diagnosed with age-related macular degeneration she discovered that PCT policy was to deny NHS funded drugs until a patient had lost the sight in one eye. She mounted a high profile campaign to help others in her position. “I won that fight but if I had been Alice Mahon, ordinary citizen, no one would have listened. I am keen to keep a watch on PCTs, unelected quangos who decide who will lose their sight and who will not.

I am Vice President of the National Association of Women and I am working with them at the moment to raise the profile of the Lisbon Treaty that is going to take so many rights away from trades unionists without any debate. I have just accepted an invitation from the Italian Left to speak on the Lisbon Treaty at a meeting in Rome.”

The ‘Personality Disorder Unit’ at Ashworth that was the subject of the Fallon Inquiry in particular, Lawrence Ward, was established and managed by Chris Hunter, friend of the Gang. In Nov 1989 Chris Hunter, after Chairing a Case Conference about me that I only found out about 30 years later, a Case Conference that received Evidence about me from people of whom I had never heard – I hadn’t heard of Hunter either – declared me to be Homicidal and Dangerous and in need of a place in Broadmoor. It was Tony Francis earlier in 1989 who asked Hunter to hold this charade. See post ‘The Night Of The (Dr Chris) Hunter’.

See previous posts for further info on Ashworth and the bloody nightmare that is Alice Mahon.

Stefan had been repeatedly attacked and injured when in prison on the grounds that he was a Monster and Wot He Did To That Little Girl was Evil. More intriguingly, once in prison, in 1979 Stefan was diagnosed with Schizophrenia and at one point a Top Doc – a forensic psych – deemed him to be suffering from delusions of innocence no less. Stefan was transferred from Ashworth to Prestwich Hospital on 20 Dec 1991, where he remained until late April 1992, although he had been cleared on DATE.

The day after Stefan was cleared, Peter Taylor, the prosecuting barrister at his original trial, was appointed Lord Chief Justice. Waddington – Bermuda – HERE

The Presiding judge at Stefan’s trial was Sir Hugh Park. Park presided over the bizarre event that was the Operation Julie trial in DATE, the culmination of a police witch-hunt against some cannabis-smoking, LSD dropping hippies in Wales while the same police carefully ignored Dafydd and Gwynne’s far bigger and more criminal operation that the police constantly bumped into when investigating the hippies. See ‘They Planned To Put Acid In All The Reservoirs’. Park – Details – Western Circuit – CHECK

I suspect that Sir Hugh was some relation of the crooked Welsh Office lawyer Andrew Park but I haven’t been able to confirm this.

When Stefan eventually was released after the Help from the friends of the Top Docs who Helped fit him up, Stefan was awarded £500k compensation. Stefan died aged 41 on 23 Dec 1993, shortly after I wrote to Michael Mansfield about Gwynedd Social Services, before Stefan received the compensation…

On 6 Jan 1994, former kid in care Peter Wynne was found hanging from the door of his flat in Wrexham. ‘Suicide.’

On 12 Jan 1994, the Jillings investigation into the abuse of kids in the care of Clwyd County Council since 1974 began.

On 1 April 1994, Brendan Randles, former kid in care, was found dead at his home in the Wrexham area.

Stefan’s mum, who maintained his innocence throughout, died on 3 May 1994, shortly after F and I met with the Mental Health Act Commission and raised our concerns that Dafydd was sexually abusing patients and serious complaints were not being investigated. Matt Arnold, the former Head of Bryn Estyn, was dying and Peter Howarth, his friend and colleague was awaiting trial. Howarth had, as a student at Ruskin College in the 1960s, undertaken a placement at an institution in Richmond, Yorkshire, where Arnold also worked. Leon Brittan was the MP for Richmond, June 1983-Dec 1988; The Hague succeeded Leon in the seat. Prior to serving as MP for Richmond, Leon was MP for Cleveland and Whitby, Feb 1974-June 1983, until the constituency was abolished.

Leon was the son of Joseph Brittan, a Top Doc who was a Lithuanian Jew and migrated to the UK before WW II. Leon attended the Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys’ School and Trinity College, Cambridge, where Leon was President of the Cambridge Union Society and Chairman of the Cambridge University Conservative Association. After further study at Yale University, in 1974 Leon bagged his first seat on the location of the big ring in the North East run by Dafydd’s partner gang, led substantially by Top Docs Lord John Walton and Israel Cohen. When that constituency was dissolved, Leon managed to get selected as the candidate for and then elected as the MP for a constituency on the location of the big ring in Yorkshire that blurred into the one surrounding his former constituency. So Leon was just the person to be offered the job of European Commissioner for Competition, that he took up on 6 Jan 1989 after resigning his seat.

I maintain that Thatch’s mates who should have been arrested did very well out of Europe…

In Jan 1993, Leon became European Commissioner for Trade and in Jan 1995, he became European Commissioner for External Relations. Leon was succeeded in that post by Fat Pang, who has been a loyal supporter of the Gang, as has his wife Lady Lavender.

From March 1999 to Sept 1999 Leon was Vice-President of the European Commission. He was succeeded in the post by the Windbag. Two loyal friends of Dafydd and Gwynne who had colluded with the most serious crime for decades.

On 13 May 1994 John Smith, Labour Party Leader died.

Little Nell waded into the action when she was elected as the MP for Barking on 9 June 1994, the day that Matt Arnold died; the vacancy had arisen when Jo Richardson, an Insider witness of decades standing, conveniently died in office on 1 Feb Feb 1994.

NB. Little Nell: This is not about Jewishness, it is about networks, in particular networks of doctors and lawyers. Because of the huge influence of Freud, one big network can be directly traced to the Viennese Whirls of Central Europe pre-WW II. You know that, but I’m flagging it up here lest you decide to make another speech about the Wicked Misogyny and Anti-Semitism of Jeremy Corbyn OK? BTW, you should really be writing a thank you letter to Jezza rather than denouncing him, because as any fule kno, Jezza was the rep for NUPE when their members were molesting and trafficking the kids in the care of Islington Borough Council when the children’s homes were your responsibility. Because both of you are responsible for the same serious criminality, you are throwing spurious allegations of bigotry at each other.

See the source image

You might remember Little Nell, that Thatch’s first Cabinet was the subject of anti-Semitic comment; ‘All these Jewish bankers and businessman’. The reason why Thatch appointed so many ‘Jewish bankers and businessmen’ (male and white as well) wasn’t because of their shared cultural values – although there are many shared cultural values between Methodists and Jewish people as George Thomas and the Abses never tired of telling people – it was because Thatch’s appointments were the Viennese Whirls bankrolling Gwynne and Dafydd’s business. In north Wales it was known that the Jewish community in Manchester favoured employing teachers trained in Wales, because of ‘their shared values’. For some people that will have been true, but the shared values of others was their participation in Dafydd and Gwynne’s trafficking business.

‘Paedophiles are so clever, ooh they’re clever, they Hide Behind Things.’

No, it is not rocket science to spout bollocks and lies, safe in the knowledge that Little Nell yells the bollocks and lies louder than the voices of reason. So if anyone else Of Dafydd wishes to tell people about my Mosleyite grandfather – yes, when Mosley was in the Labour Party, along with John Strachey, Bertrand’s mate – or wishes to present Evidence Of My Racism as supplied by er people who, among other things, were paid to say that, yelled ‘Abbo’ at the black newsreader on TV, stated that when a Black Person was convicted the headline ought to read ‘Black bastard jailed’, or dug up a corpse from a grave yard and gave the skull to his mate to use as an ornament, be my guest. Just expect to look very, very foolish if/when I finally decide to tell everyone what the source of info was.

OK Uncle Harry’s nephew?


In July 1994, Dafydd had contacted the MDU with the cock and bull story about me having thrown a brick through his glass door in the early hours. Dafydd and Tony Francis declared me to be a Danger to Dafydd in particular and to ALL Docs. Dafydd told the MDU that he wanted to obtain a High Court injunction against me.

Meetings were held with police, lawyers, Top Docs and others to discuss my Dangerousness and the brick that I’d thrown although by Aug 1994, everyone knew that I could not have thrown the brick. The conversations about me throwing the brick continued and it was documented by all that I’d thrown the brick. Ron Evans the bent lawyer was given to access to my NHS records, forged a few documents and advised Gwynedd Community Health Trust to install an alarm to Protect Dafydd From Me at a cost of £20k. Not because an alarm was needed but because it Would Show The Court The Danger That I Presented To Dafydd.

In July 1994 Richard Williams, a former kid in care in north Wales, was found dead in a car.

On 8 July 1994, at Chester Crown Court, Peter Howarth was sentenced to 10 years for the abuse of kids in care in north Wales.

Miranda was installed as Leader of the Labour Party on 21 July 1994. HowartMiranda was the MP for Sedgefield, on the site of the North East ring of which Arnold and Howarth were part of pre-Bryn Estyn. The Labour MP for Durham North West, 1964-87, Ernest Armstrong (a former Leeds Headmaster) concealed their activities when he was a Sunderland Councillor and as an MP. Ernest was instrumental in securing Miranda the candidacy for Sedgefield. Ernest died on 8 July 1996, just weeks after The Hague confirmed in the House that there would be a Public Inquiry into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. Waterhouse was named as the Chair just a few weeks after Ernest died.

I am delighted that Stefan did at least have a bit of freedom before he died, but Stefan is someone else who was only released because of yet another deal between those we know and love to ensure that I never won a case against the Gang.

Prof Geoff Sagar of the Plant Biology Dept at UCNW, who also served as a PVC during the 1980s, grew up in Lancashire.


Shirley Summerskill’s predecessor in Halifax, Maurice Macmillan, was out of the Commons for two years while Dafydd settled into his new role as a consultant and then Maurice returned in 1966 as the MP for Farnham, the year that Dafydd was named in ‘The Times’ in a big patient abuse scandal.

F lived near Farnham and went to art college there in the mid-1970s. It was when F was at Farnham that he became ensnared with the Top Doctors in the south east of England who were in partnership with the Gang in north Wales. Previous posts have discussed F’s initial encounters and the role played by other people, including Harold Cheeseman, one of the senior figures at what was then called West Surrey College of Art and F’s father-in-law at the time, a society dentist with mates in Harley Street, with whom F had a terrible relationship.

Maurice’s seat became the constituency known as South West Surrey at the 1983 General Election. Maurice served as Economic Secretary to the Treasury, 1963–64, under Alec Douglas-Home, when my father was bothered by gangsters sent by Theodore and then was offered a job by Lord Denning’s neighbour and in Grocer Heath’s Gov’t as Chief Secretary to the Treasury, 1970–72, Secretary of State for Employment, 1972–73 and Paymaster General, 1973–74.

The lunch at the Clarence in Bridgwater between Thatch and a relative of mine took place in 1973…

Maurice was made a Privy Counsellor in 1972.

Oxford Blood By Lady Antonia Fraser

Maurice married Katherine Ormsby-Gore, Lord David Harlech’s sister; The West Country politician Alexander Macmillan is their son. Alexander’s celeb circle, especially the one that resulted from his marriage to Miranda Quarry (the third wife of Peter Sellers and all who sailed in him), reached well into Dafydd’s network. See previous posts. Alexander married Miranda Quarry on 23 Dec 1995; they divorced in 2011.

It was in the early/mid-1990s that so many  from the shabbier and unscrupulous circles around well-known celebs began converging on the Bridgwater area Bearing Gifts. I have mentioned in posts and comments that they were very intimidating towards my father. He would be trying to have his dinner or watch the TV in the evenings and this bunch of animals would crash in having been invited by other people in the household and show absolutely no regard at all for him very obviously not wanting them there. It was exactly what had been happening to me so often when I shared flats and houses in Surrey and London. Deeply unpleasant people who had been invited by others in the house would roll up and very obviously try to intimidate me in a way that mainstream visitors just would not have done. I note that father took the same stance that I had: ‘I live here, I don’t know who you are but you are bloody appalling and I am not going to be hounded out of my own home.’ Except that at father’s place they helped themselves to food that he had paid for, did their washing, dossed down for the night and told very obvious lies about their alleged occupations etc. These were not celebs/ Oxford academics/Governors of the Bank of England themselves, but they were their degenerate friends and relations, that bit was not fantasy. The first celeb to make contact back in 1987ish was Graham Chapman; the Python who was the most socially unacceptable of the Pythons and who did hang out with unsavoury people… But ooh he’s a Python! Even if he is a child abuser and his mates are serious criminals.

The phenomenon was way beyond a few mates dropping in and getting a bit boisterous. Neither did it just happen once or twice, the bay of pigs invasion went on for years, routinely. It was particularly good if they had been filmed by the TV themselves and were due to be on later that day or whatever; father would be sitting watching the news, there’d be a Drunken Roar outside with much swearing, the door would fly open and a group of Strangers would enter the room, walk over to the TV and switch it to whichever channel they would be appearing on. Without a word to anyone already in the room. I was there when they did it on one occasion. I asked father if he knew any of them. ‘No’. On one occasion, as I was passing through the kitchen, a group of them were shouting and yelling and making noises of disgust because the member of the household who had been stupid enough to respond to their demands for a dinner hadn’t cooked something up to their standards…

DENZIL FREETH – the Tory MP for WHERE, the constituency that included Lord Denning’s home village, was removed as an MP by Lord Denning in DATE after Denzil – A Known Omosexual who was a big name in the classical music and music journalism world as well as a friend of Grocer Heath – was prosecuted after a policeman ‘found him outside in his underwear, drunk’. One David Mitchell then became the MP for WHERE, remaining in the seat until DATE. David Mitchell is the father of Andrew Mitchell of Plebgate fame. See previous posts.


Dora Carter, you are out of your depth, fess up all that you know and your silly little friend Kitty can as well, Kitty Stevens, another Ysbyty Gwynedd secretary who bore witness to Francis lying repeatedly while Francis carefully made a recording of his version of events in Kitty’s presence AFTER I wrote my first letter to Francis raising concerns. Whoever was recording everything happening in that hospital didn’t let on that they had the evidence that would have confirmed my ‘conspiracy theory’…

Conrad experienced poor mental health for much of his life; he had what could be described as nervous breakdowns and as a young man was acutely suicidal when young. Conrad Russell’s physical health worsened in the late 1990s and he died of respiratory failure at Central Middlesex Hospital on 14 Oct 2004. The Central Middlesex Hospital was the domain of Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate Top Doc Francis Avery Jones and Jonathan Miller when he was younger and worked for Avery Jones. Miller’s son William worked with my friend at the BBC in the late 1980s who was forced out of his job after refusing to take a bribe… Jonathan Miller had been a good pal of the Gang and was a friend and colleague of Graham Chapman who’s close friends turned up to make friends with the Bridgy crowd in 1987ish… See previous posts for gen on Jonathan, William and Jonathan’s dad the child psychiatrist Emmanuel.

Conrad Russell was predeceased by his wife Elizabeth Sanders in 2003.

Oct 2004 – Pinochet – Heather Hallett at Bristol Crown Court – the Philanderer clearing my name

Conrad’s heir Nicholas Lyulph Russell, 6th Earl Russell (12 September 1968-17 August 2014), styled Viscount Amberley between 1987 and 2004, was the elder son of Conrad Russell, 5th Earl Russell and Elizabeth Russell (formerly Elizabeth Sanders).

Like Bertrand, [Or should that be ‘Like, Bertrand??? !! OMG!!! – Ed], Nicholas was an active member of CND from his teenage years until his death. Like his father and grandfather, Nicholas was a member of the Labour Party (although Bertrand and John Russell eventually left the Labour Party), sitting squarely within its left wing. Russell was the disability rights campaigner for the Labour Party

and was Campaigns Officer for the Royal National Institute of the Blind. He also trained the Metropolitan Police Service. Nicholas was a Regional Board Member of the Co-operative Group and was active in the Co-operative Party, as well as SERA and Transport 2000.

Nicholas Russell was also a longstanding National Executive Member of the Socialist Educational Association.

Nicholas was actively involved in Disability Labour and was a former Chair of the group.

Nicholas was Disability Labour’s first representative on the Labour Party’s National Policy Forum, the National Executive Committee’s Equalities Sub-committee and the Socialist Societies Executive.

On 7 May 2010 Russell was elected as Labour Councillor for Waltham Forest London Borough Council, a position he held for a four-year term until May 2014.He lived with his fiancée Georgina Farrer in Leytonstone, until his sudden death from a presumed heart attack on 17 August 2014, aged 45. An autopsy later confirmed the cause of death to have been due to a thrombosis. Georgina subsequently died in 2014 as well.

Outside medicine [Michael Oliver] enjoyed skiing, shooting and sailing, English porcelain and antiques. In his retirement, he spent more time at his old farmhouse in Umbria, Italy, and became an expert on Italian Renaissance art.

In 1948 he married Margaret Yool Abbey, a doctor. They had three sons and a daughter. They later divorced and he married for a second time, to Helen Daniel. She predeceased him, as did his eldest son, John, who was killed in a car crash. Michael Oliver was survived by his children, Mark, Sarah and Paul, and by five grandchildren.

The Indie obit for Michael Oliver:

Michael Oliver was one of the most eminent cardiovascular researchers of his era. His work was most notably concerned with the relationship between diet, cholesterol and coronary disease and he led early trials into cholesterol-lowering drugs.

He was born in Wales, raised in Hampshire and educated at Marlborough College and Edinburgh University, where he gained a First in biochemistry and physiology. Rather than National Service, he spent two years in general practice in Leith, Edinburgh – a salutary and important experience where he “learned” to be a doctor and practice clinical medicine.


The bothering of Merfyn by these Scottish invaders

closely associated with the Gang was noticeably after Eric Hobsbawm’s Scottish friend Gordon, a graduate of Edinburgh University, became PM and his running dog, Uncle Harry’s nephew, decided that he ought to become proactive as well.

Rosalind’s 2002 obituary in ‘The Guardian’, written by one of her colleagues, R.J. Morris, tells us that:

After a variety of teaching and lecturing jobs in English universities, in 1953 Rowy moved to Edinburgh with her husband, who had been appointed to a lectureship. She herself began teaching part-time in what became the department of economic history, and developed an interest in the history of Scotland, on which she contributed a number of landmark publications. One of her pupils was the present chancellor, Gordon Brown.

Gordon by this time had married Sarah. They had suffered their own tragedy earlier in the year that Liz Shore’s sister Rosalind died, when the Browns’ baby Jennifer died from a brain haemorrhage on 7 Jan 2002, having been born prematurely on 28 Dec 2001. I have been wondering for a while who wanted the Top Docs to give Gordon a kick and I still haven’t worked out who put them up to it. I will however remind Gordon and Sarah that they are Fucking Stupid to have played ball with this lot.

Gordon’s ‘mate’ Lord Jack McConnell became FM of Scotland on 22 Nov 2001.

Official portrait of Lord McConnell of Glenscorrodale crop 2.jpg

Lord Jack only became FM after Scotland’s first FM Donald Dewar died from a brain haemorrhage after that nasty fall. Dewar wasn’t elderly and the world had a surprise when he left a fortune after his death. No-one had realised that Dewar was seriously loaded and no-one ever explained how Dewar could have acquired such a fortune, Dewar having only ever worked as a Scottish lawyer and politician. See ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – The Scottish Play’. But then Henry and Sula Wolff amassed a collection of art treasures so valuable that it was bequeathed to the Scottish nation and Henry and Sula were NHS psychiatrists who Helped Children.

[Rowy] was professor of social history from 1981 to 1986…(Rowy’s first academic post had been as research bursar to the Nuffield College social reconstruction survey.) Next came the widely read History Of Scotland (1970), which made the scholarly history of Scotland accessible, and was dedicated “To Murdoch, who saw this coming before I did”.

her major book, The Old Poor Law Of Scotland: The Experience Of Poverty, 1574-1845, published when its author was 80, though still showing the same humanity…

Her last published words are on the website of the fourth statistical account of East Lothian, a splendid outcome of collaboration between academics and community history groups.

Among Rowy’s many contributions to the life of Edinburgh University was the vigour with which she demonstrated the weaving together of domestic, academic and intellectual life. Her annual fireworks parties were legendary; children were first…

See the source image

At work, she also took care to make spaces for other women academics…

One of her most fruitful collaborations, in 1948 with Leah Leneman, produced Girls In Trouble and Sex In The City, both pioneering contributions to the history of sexuality in Scotland and to understanding the culture of social control and the kirk, which demonstrated her usual sharp understanding of legal process and sources…

The writer of this toadying nonsense remembered that when he, as a young academic in his 20s, joined the Dept of Economic History at Edinburgh University, he discovered that Rosalind supported the House of Lords because her father-in-law was in there, ‘one of the early Labour peers’.

Thus the obituarist realised that Rosalind with the father-in-law who was a Labour peer Of That Era was ‘a colleague of sensitivity and generosity’, in opposing the abolition of the Lords which would have seen her powerful relative without dining facilities…

Who is the toadying R.J. Morris? I have been guilty of dreadful gender stereotyping by assuming that R.J. is female, on the basis that R.J. spouted nonsense about Rosalind ‘making spaces’ for wimmin in the academy. R.J. is a man, Robert John Morris, Emeritus Professor of Economic and Social History at the University of Edinburgh.

Morris studied PPE at Keble College, Oxford, graduating with a BA in 1965. Sir Peter Morrison and Keith Best both studied at Keble; Peter Morrison was almost certainly at Keble with R.J. Morris. Morris spent the following three years completing his DPhil at Nuffield College, Oxford. In 1968, Morris joined the Department of Economic History in the Social Science Faculty of Edinburgh University and discovered that he had a generous, sensitive Lady Colleague who made spaces for Wimmin and had a father-in-law in the Lords and many other influential relatives as well. R.J. Morris taught at Edinburgh until he retired, eventually being appointed Professor of Economic and Social History. So Morris must have come across Gordon Brown as well.

R.J. Morris served as President of the European Urban History Association in 2000–02, and, as of 2017, is a patron of the Thoresby Society and President of the Scottish Economic and Social History Society.

Morris’s research has focused primarily on class and urbanisation, especially relating to the formation of the middle classes in nineteenth-century Britain, especially with reference to gender, and family and property relations. His publications include:

  • “Voluntary Societies and British Urban Elites, 1780–1870: an analysis”, The Historical Journal, vol.24 (1982), pp. 95–118.
  • Class, Sect and Party. The Making of the British Middle Class: Leeds, 1820–50 (Manchester University Press, 1990).
  • (ed. with W. H. Fraser) People and Society in Scotland vol. 2, 1830–1914 (Edinburgh: John Donald, 1990).
  • (ed. with Richard Rodger) The Victorian City. A Reader in British Urban History, 1820–1914 (London: Longman, 1993).

  • Scotland 1907: The Many Scotlands of Valentine and Sons Photographers (Edinburgh: Berlinn, 2007).

These old teachers of Gordon who specialised in economic and social history will have known Merfyn’s PhD supervisor E.P. Thompson, who was also a second homer at Croesor along with Eric Hobsbawm and the crowd.

E.P. Thompson and presumably his wife Dorothy Thompson, who was Prof of History at Birmingham University:

E.P. Thompson moved near Halifax when he was older;

shortly after Gwynedd Social Services had taken F and I to Court on the grounds of the perjury of Jackie Brandt, a Gwynedd social worker.


One of Brandt’s managers, Thomas Merfyn Hughes, lived in Cwm Croesor and had lived there for years. I think that he was the Welsh Speaking Social Worker recruited by Dafydd in the late 1960s to make it even easier for Dafydd and Gwynne to bang up complainants. Merfyn Hughes had stood as the Labour candidate for Caernarfon in a previous era but later defected to Plaid and was Elfyn Llwyd’s election agent. Llwyd was a barrister and the MP for the constituency that embraced Croesor.

Merfyn Hughes physically retrieved documentation about me from the grasp of Brandt and her fellow criminals in the Arfon CMHT in 2005, after the Arfon CMHT refused to hand it over.

Merfyn Hughes knew E.P. Thompson, Bertrand et al.

Merfyn Hughes was found dead in Nov 2010. His body was found at the bottom of an embankment hidden behind a greenhouse, concealed from the road and the house of the garden that contained Merfyn’s body, the house of one of his neighbours. Dewi Pritchard Jones the Coroner concluded at the inquest that Merfyn had been drinking in the Bron Danw Arms in Llanfrothen and when walking home in the early hours had slipped down the embankment, fallen into the garden, decided to have a nap there and then froze to death, before he concealed his own body. No, no-one – well apart from me – fell about laughing at Dewi’s conclusion, but then Dewi pushes the boat out regularly at inquests. For the terrible details, including those relating to Det Inspector Brian Kearney and the pathologist Dr Mark Lord who colluded with Dewi’s idiocy, see post eg. ‘A Particularly Worrying Death’.

In 2013 Dr Mark Lord, in his capacity as Chief of Pathology Services for the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, starred in PR pieces for the Betsi as New Expensive Pathology Facilities were under construction. Six years later, that Health Board is such a disaster that it is an object of wonder. It has been in special measures for five years now, none of the ‘support’ from the Welsh Gov’t has improved anything, the hit squads and Management Consultants bought in at great expense have not managed to Turn The Board Around and the mortality rates – already the highest in Western Europe – rocket ever upwards. Is this surprising when the Chief of Pathology colluded with what was fairly obviously a murder of a fellow Gang member?

When Merfyn Thomas was busy being a Gwynedd social worker, the lead pathologist in north Wales was the infamous Dr Donald Wayte, who was always happy to confirm as evidence in Court matters of which he could not have been sure, who accused innocent bereaved parents in public of murdering their children and who as a Treat for the 15 yr old son of Lucille Hughes’s secretary, took the boy into work with him at Ysbyty Gwynedd for a few days, providing access to all areas – including the Dead Bodies – breaching all ethical guidelines and the law. Donald’s wife Avril is also a pathologist for the Betsi, Avril was/is In Charge Of The Path Labs at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd and is a Trustee of Dafydd’s charidee CAIS. See previous posts…

I’d love to be able to say ‘They don’t make them like Donald Wayte anymore’ but in north Wales in particular, they do.


Rosalind’s father-in-law Gilbert Richard Mitchison, Baron Mitchison (23 March 1894-14 February 1970) was educated at Eton College and New College, Oxford, and became a barrister. He served with the Queen’s Bays in WW I. He worked in the Ministry of Labour during WW II on the Beveridge manpower survey, and led the Nuffield College social reconstruction survey.

Mitchison was the Labour MP for Kettering, 1945-64, beating the young incumbent, John Profumo, at the 1945 General Election. He was created Baron Mitchison, on 5 October 1964, in the aftermath of the Profumo Affair. Dick Mitchison served on the Executive of the Fabian Society.

Mitchison married the writer Naomi Haldane (daughter of John Scott Haldane and sister of J.B.S. Haldane). They had six children, including four sons: Geoffrey (1918–1927), Denis (born 1919, a Professor of bacteriology), Murdoch (born 1922) and Avrion (born 1928), both Professors of Zoology. Their daughters were Lois and Valentine, the latter of whom married the historian Mark Arnold-Forster.

Dick Mitchison died in Westminster aged 75.

Dick Mitchison’s son-in-law Mark Arnold-Forster (16 April 1920-25 December 1981) is best remembered for his book The World at War, which accompanied the 1973 TV series of the same name.

Mark was the only son of William Edward Arnold-Forster (b. 1886, d. 1951), painter, publicist, and gardener, and his wife Katharine “Ka” Laird, née Cox (b. 1887, d. 1938) and grandson of Hugh Oakeley Arnold-Forster. His parents’ families included leading politicians and writers, among them Matthew Arnold, and his mother had been close to Rupert Brooke and his group as well as to Virginia Woolf. Mark’s family were part of Sir Clough’s Bloomsbury Group.

Shortly after his birth, Mark’s parents went to live in a picturesque Cornish house. They placed Mark at the age of seven in a boarding school in the French-speaking part of Switzerland, and at nine years old in Kurt Hahn‘s Schule Schloss Salem in Germany. When Hitler came to power in 1933, Hahn was driven into exile and Arnold-Forster followed him to Gordonstoun, where Mark stayed until he left school in 1937.

Bloomsbury Mark was at Gordonstoun with Phil the Greek, they were virtually the same age; Phil the Greek first met Brenda when Phil was still at Gordonstoun with Bloomsbury Mark.

Mark Arnold-Forster undertook a year’s apprenticeship during 1938–39 with the Blue Funnel Line, and then joined the Royal Navy. Mark Arnold-Forster served throughout WW II, first as a merchant seaman and then in the RNVR.

In 1946, Arnold-Forster joined the editorial staff of The Manchester Guardian. He worked first in Manchester and then in Germany. In 1949 Mark became labour correspondent, a job that he carried out for eight years. Arnold-Foster then joined The Observer as a political correspondent, but in 1963 he had a falling out with The Observer over an issue related to an editorial change to one of his articles. He resigned in disgust and returned to The Guardian as Chief Editorial writer. Arnold-Foster later moved to ITN, as Deputy to Editor Sir Geoffrey Cox. In the 1970s, Mark wrote the series The World at War, with narration by Laurence Olivier and Jeremy Isaacs as the producer. He continued to write regular leaders for The Guardian until his death in 1981.

Here’s a brief translation/resume: Think Alastair Hetherington, who had it in for my two friends when they were at Stirling University, when Hetherington was appointed as a Research Prof at Stirling in spite of having none of the experience or interest needed for such a post, but because the VC of Stirling wanted a Big Media Friend (my friends were among the Stirling students who signed a letter to ‘The Scotsman’ opposing Hetherington’s appointment, Hetherington who’s father Hector was an academic at what became Cardiff University); the Astor family; and dear old Michael Grade. They’re all in Arnold-Foster’s biography, as well as Bertrand Russell et al. See previous posts.

On 12 January 1955, Mark married Valentine Harriet Isobel Dione Mitchison (b. 1930), also a journalist, daughter of Dick Mitchison and Naomi Mitchison. Both were related to successive Secretaries of State for War, Hugh Oakeley Arnold-Forster and R. B. Haldane. Mark and Valentine had five children: three sons and two daughters.

M. Arnold-Forster’s later life home in Notting Hill was the former home of Emmeline Pankhurst and fellow women’s suffragist Christabel Pankhurst

Mark Arnold-Forster suffered from persistent ill health in his 50s, in particular a series of minor strokes. In 1979, he developed cancer of the upper colon and died at his home in Notting Hill, London, on 25 Dec 1981.

Liz Shore’s brother Professor Oliver Murray Wrong (7 February 1925-24 February 2012) was a nephrologist, one of the founders of the speciality in the UK, as were Lord Robert Platt and Sir William Asscher, who were leading figures in ensuring that no harm or indeed dismissals let alone arrests came to Dafydd, Gwynne, Geoffrey Chamberlain et al.

Here’s the Uncle Harry bit: ‘Wrong himself contributed to much of the molecular work after his own “retirement”. He dictated amendments to his final paper during his final illness in his own teaching hospital, UCH. Though academic in his leanings, he was a compassionate physician who established a warm rapport with patients, a link he regarded as the keystone of his research. He belonged to a generation of idealistic young doctors responsible for the establishment of the UK’s NHS in the post-war years.’

Oliver on holiday at Blackpool, being all compassionate, worrying about the Poor:

Oliver got off to a flying start, being born in Magdalen College, Oxford and like Uncle Harry, Julian Tudor Spart et al, was so shocked at the Poverty that he saw as a medical student before Nye waved his magic wand

that Oliver was moved for ever. Oliver’s dad Murray died of heart disease at the age of 38, so one wonders what the Top Docs did wrong there. Oliver wrote an account of his father’s illness, including consultations with Sir William Osler, in a vignette “Osler and my father”. Osler was one of the forerunners of the study of the history of medicine which, by the 1980s, had very obviously become a vehicle through which Top Docs covered their arses. When police investigations began into the big paedophile rings across the UK, including north Wales, the History of Medicine became frankly ludicrous, because Dafydd’s colleagues began writing it.

One historian of medicine who is taken seriously is Prof Roy Porter. I love Porter’s work but I noticed that he never touched certain areas of medicine that I always felt could do with the Roy Porter treatment, so imagine my surprise when I began researching for this blog and I discovered not just Roy Porter’s many links with the grander academics in Dafydd’s web, but that Dafydd and Tony Francis’s mates at Manchester, Hugh Freeman and John V. Pickstone, had persuaded Roy Porter to get on board with the rewriting of history re medicine in Manchester. See eg. ‘The Science Of Animal Behaviour’. I knew that Roy Porter stood out among the Cambridge elite because of his leather jackets, his bike and his love of a good party but then I realised that Roy enjoyed recreational chemicals as well and knew which Docs supplied them.

Roy retired before anyone imagined that he would in 2001. He stepped down as the Director of the Wellcome Institute for the History of Medicine at UCL and went to live near Brighton. Roy Porter died suddenly and unexpectedly on 3 March 2002, five months after he retired. Heart attack while he was out cycling. Bechod, Rhodri Morgan went in exactly the same way on 17 May 2017, but was older and thicker than Roy Porter. See previous posts for details re Roy Porter.

Oliver Wrong’s father’s early death and the Great Depression led to a split in the upbringing of the six children. Oliver was sent to Toronto with two of his sisters and was raised by his grandfather, George MacKinnon Wrong.

Oliver Wrong studied Medicine at Magdalen and completed his clinical studies at the Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford. His National Service was spent with the RAMC in Singapore and Malaysia.

After internships in Toronto and at Massachusetts General Hospital with Alexander Leaf, Oliver Wrong was appointed University Tutor in Medicine at Manchester Royal Infirmary. It was at Manchester with Dr. H.E.F. Davies, in 1959, that Wrong wrote ‘a ground-breaking paper’. Lord Platt still ruled supreme in Manchester and Sir Douglas Black, another mate of the Gang, was in training to succeed Platt as The Big Man In Manchester. See post ‘The Logic Of Medicine’.

After an appointment at UCH, Oliver Wrong became Senior Lecturer in Medicine at the Hammersmith Hospital, then dominated by Professor Hugh Bentall. Bentall was the heart surgeon who: purchased his Chair from Hammersmith after one of his colleagues was found dead in suspicious circumstances in the hospital; perpetrated a huge research fraud and then flogged his Expertise re this matter to a team of Soviet cardiac surgeons during the Cold War, gaining much political kudos; and employed a secretary who was his mistress who, thanks to Bentall, ended up with a BSc and PhD in Anatomy and then a lecturing job at Hammersmith. See post ‘Interesting Facts’.

Hugh’s son Richard Bentall – UCNW – married Rhiannon, the daughter of Eifion Jones, the Dean of Science at UCNW, when I encountered Gwynne and the aggro began. Rhiannon completed a degree in the Dept of Plant Biology at UCNW just before I did and then she trained as an Angel.

William Eifion Jones (1925-March 2004) was a marina botanist, an algologist, as was Greig-Smith’s wife. D.G.E. Wood’s wife Chris was a marine botanist who worked in the Dept of Plant Biology at UCNW. Eifion Jones was born and brought up in Aberystwyth and studied botany at the University of Wales under Professor Lilly Newton. Jones moved to Bangor in 1953 to join the newly founded Marine Biology Station as a Lecturer with Denis Crisp and completed his PhD in 1957. Jones had a wife, Marian, and two children, Rhiannon and Aled. Eifion Jones retired early in 1986, but went on to lecture in Kuwait, returning to do part-time lecturing at Bangor.

Eifion Jones died in a car accident on Anglesey in March 2004. Jones died months after Merfyn’s friend the Philanderer, a junior Minister in Miranda’s Gov’t, had infuriated the Gang by clearing my name after the Gang had tried to have me struck off the teaching register on the grounds of my Severe Mental Illness, that, according to them, I had suffered from for 17 years no less. The Gang’s original Cunning Plan had of course been to have me framed and imprisoned for threatening to kill Alun Davies, but that imploded because, unknown to me, a whistleblower came forward just before the trial, explained that they had witnessed the discussions to frame me and the scale of the perjury became evident and thus the charges were withdrawn on the first day of the trial and replaced with a charge of the lowest level of an offence under the Public Order Act ie. putting the wind up Alun Davies.

Huw Daniel, the Presiding Judge and a mate of Gwynne and Dafydd’s, hit the roof because he seemed to think that he was going to be jailing me for Threats To Kill, only to find that I, having pleaded guilty to putting the wind up Davies, merely had to return for sentencing in July 2004. CHECK. Daniel demanded an Expert Report from Tony Roberts, one of the NHS perjurers before sentencing and told me that he would imprison me if I ‘refused to co-operate’ with the perjurer Roberts, who had been appointed as My Doctor without my consent. I returned to Court for sentencing in MONTH, only to find Daniel roaring and bellowing (again) in Court, because their was no Court Report; neither could Daniel blame and imprison me, because the Report had never been officially ordered. That’s what you get for presiding over a chaotic, corrupt Court Daniel, you fat fool. So Huw Daniel gave me the heaviest sentence possible – over 100 hours community service – for telling Davies’s secretary, over the phone, that he was a fat idiot.

That was two months after Lady Justice Heather Hallett at Bristol Crown Court had stopped Mr Bridgy Celeb’s trial for manslaughter and ordered the jury to acquit on a technicality. The technicality being that Mr Bridgy Celeb had managed to kill someone in a way in which no-one else had previously – by firing them from a medieval catapult -and thus there was no Health and Safety precedent re Risk Assessment. Which was news to me, because I had sat in Mr Bridgy Celeb’s house many months previously, as Mr Bridgy Celeb compiled a file of documentation re Health and Safety and Risk for the HSE, at their request. I saw the file myself Dame Heather AND I was told the purpose. After Mr Bridgy Celeb submitted that file to the HSE, one person thrown from the catapult broke their arm and another broke their pelvis. I know that Mr Bridgy Celeb was warned by some of his friends that they were concerned that if he continued, he would kill someone. Indeed, I wrote that in an e mail to two members of staff at Bangor University, one of whom was friendly with Eifion Jones; those e mails were among the e mails that were hacked and passed to Miranda and the Digger.

Very shortly after the death of the young man who had been killed after being thrown from the catapult, I received a call from a friend who had seen the news bulletin on TV with Mr Bridgy Celeb interviewed, who urged me to ring him on the grounds that he must be feeling terrible. I suspected not, but my friend was insistent, so I rang Mr Bridgy Celeb. I asked him if he was OK and he breezily told me that the dead man was ‘A Bulgarian student without one living relative in the UK so no-one’s going to worry too much about him’. I made my excuses and rang off a la a News of the Screws reporter.

I was told after I began this blog that Mr Bridgy Celeb was one who gave Evidence re my Insanity and Dangerousness to Dafydd, Tony Francis etc and that this was almost certainly the reason why Dame Heather stopped that trial.

I met Eifion Jones’s daughter Rhiannon after the summer of 2005 when I finished my PhD. By that time the Gang were in full cry for Merfyn’s blood – Merfyn had been acting VC of Bangor from 2003 and then confirmed as VC in 2004 – because he had refused to force me out of the University unlawfully when I was doing my PhD and then really pissed them off by refusing to force me out of my postdoc job there. I met Rhiannon when I saw an advert for her services as a masseur – she had left the NHS and was running a complementary therapy centre on Anglesey – and booked in. I was suffering from serious musculo-skeletal problems in my back and my neck and was being unlawfully denied NHS care. They had just tried to imprison me anyway, so I really didn’t want anything to do with them and I booked in with Rhiannon…

The Welsh Gov’t Health Minister At The Time:

Rhiannon was very pleasant and the massages did help the problem but I did have to keep returning, because the condition was quite serious. Rhiannon told me who she was – Eifion’s daughter and Richard’s ex-wife -but she didn’t tell me that she, her father and Richard had all been part of the Get Merfyn Out Campaign because they knew that I was the One Who Made The Wicked Allegations Against Gwynne and All Those Complaints about the Gang… Rhiannon mentioned that her dad had recently died in a car accident.

I have looked up the details of the crash that killed Eifion Jones. He was driving slowly and safely, when a lorry hit his car and he died instantly of serious head wounds. The Inquest, held by the notorious Dewi Pritchard-Jones, nonetheless deemed Eifion to have been responsible for the crash, presuming that Eifion didn’t see the lorry when he should have: ‘Accidental Death, through Eifion’s own actions’.

The Inquest heard that the vehicle inspector, Ken Stone, found no faults in either of the vehicles involved in the crash.

I am fairly sure that Ken Stone was the vehicle inspector who flagged me down on my way home from Bangor when I was doing my PhD, stated that he could find no fault with my car on his ‘spot check’ but he couldn’t find any record of me having insurance on his IT system. I told him that I was insured but ooh no, Ken couldn’t find any record. My car was impounded on the orders of Ken and the police took it to Gwalia Garage at Caethro, the location of the police pound. I was told to take my insurance documents to Caernarfon Police Station within a certain number of days and pay a fee to reclaim my car, or the car would be scrapped. I took my documents in as requested and as I was in the reception area of the station, I was insulted and harassed by a teenager AND his mother, who was, it transpired, waiting to be cautioned. This happened in front of the civilian police worker on duty. I challenged the boy and his mother about their harassment of a member of the public, only to be Warned by the civilian police worker. Not a word was said to the two people who for an unknown reason had begun catcalling and insulting me after I walked into the station.

Although my documents were in order, there was an inexplicable delay before the police gave me the go ahead to collect my car from the pound. After some five days, I was able to and paid £100 for the pleasure of the police wrongly impounding my car. The North Wales Police maintained that they could not be held responsible for my insurance not showing up on the IT system.

Brown came with me to Gwalia to collect my car. As the garage men drove it out the front, another employee of Gwalia presented me with a form and said ‘Just sign here to acknowledge receipt of your car’. Just as I was about to do so, Brown yelled ‘Don’t sign a thing, come and look at this’. Brown had inspected the car immediately after it had been parked for me to collect. He had discovered extensive damage to the car on the side that was facing a fence ie. concealed from my view when the girl from Gwalia waved the form under my nose. We then found that someone had tried to prise the bonnet open with a crowbar and inside, the radio and all electrical wiring had been ripped out. Furthermore, all documentation that was in the locked glove box had been stolen. Letters from my lawyer re my difficulties with the NHS.

Gwalia denied all knowledge of the damage. Brown pointed out that when Ken Stone had hijacked my car, he had provided me with documentation saying that the car was roadworthy with no defects. Ken Stone robustly maintained that the damage to my car had not happened at the hands of the police, but at Gwalia. Gwalia suggested that someone must have broken into the pound but they really hadn’t noticed. Gwalia refused to agree to repair the car until Brown reminded them of a few legal niceties, including returning a dangerous unroadworthy vehicle without working lights to me on a dark winter’s night and telling me to drive off in it. They agreed to repair the damage. They didn’t do that. I returned repeatedly to find that the bare minimum had been ‘repaired’, but much more damage was left untouched. I lived in the mountains miles away from Bangor and I needed the car to get to work. After three weeks of the repairs still not being carried out in total, I gave up and paid another garage to do the work. Gwalia were hostile and aggressive throughout and the North Wales Police washed their hands of all responsibility.

A few months later, a member of staff at Bangor University told me that their daughter had her car unlawfully impounded, that Gwalia had behaved appallingly and that it was rumoured that Gwalia and the North Wales Police (or at least corrupt elements of the force) were maliciously impounding vehicles of certain targets.

One of my biggest problems with the NW Wales NHS Trust was with the Chairman, Elfed Roberts, the former Assistant Chief Constable of North Wales who had left under a cloud of allegations of corruption. So obviously the Welsh Gov’t appointed him as Chair of the NHS Trust and a Governor of Bangor University. Elfed had me wrongly arrested four or five times in his capacity as the Chair of the NHS Trust. Members of the public wrote to the Trust and to the North Wales Police as witnesses, complaining about what they had seen happening to me. There were no investigations on any occasion. See previous posts eg. ‘                                                      ‘.

By the time that Elfed was busy in my direction, Sister Hutt had been removed as Health Minister after Failures, to be replaced with people who also Moved On after Failures.

A Cougar On The Prowl, About To Be Blown Out:

Mountain Lion in Glacier National Park.jpg

I heard about that man on Anglesey who had sex with you in return for business grant funding when you were Welsh Gov’t Business Minister Edwina, as did a lot of other people.

As a younger plod, Elfed had been the Sgt at Llangefni Police Station, near Dafydd’s house. Elfed was mates with Dafydd and Gwynne.

Rhiannon’s father Eifion joined the British Phycological Society in 1955 and served as a Member of Council (1959 and 1974–77), as Assistant Secretary (1959) and Hon. Treasurer (1964–1968). At the Eighth International Seaweed Symposium, held in Bangor in 1974, Eifion was a member of the organizing committee and secretary. Eifion was President of the North Wales Wildlife Trust and Bardsey Bird and Field Observatory. Some of those biologists who were bribed into keeping quiet about what happened to me at the hands of the Gang were given jobs with the NW Wales Wildlife Trust and the Bardsey Bird and Field Observatory.

When I was a postdoc, I discovered that Martin Jones, the CEO of the NW Wales Trust and an equally big problem as Elfed, had taken up birding. There is nothing about Martin that would make him a potential birder. I wondered at the time if Martin might have been networking with people who had known me at UCNW, because most of my friends and their network back then were birders. The crooked lawyer Ron Evans who used to work for Gwynedd County Council and was Brains behind the Gang also took up birding and bird photography in later life, at the same time as Martin. Martin is a UCNW grad who was some two years older than me. Martin did Marine Sciences, wasn’t very good at it and ended up with a Third, then failed accountancy exams. But that’s what the NHS wants and Martin was accepted onto the NHS graduate management training programme with Gwynedd Health Authority, just after the Gwynne business.

My friend Anne who was killed by the Gang in April 1986, in her first year at UCNW found her first boyfriend, a Marine Sciences student, Pete Howlett. Pete and Anne split up after a year, but remained friends. Pete knew Brown and me and was one year below Martin at UCNW. Pete was treated dreadfully by Eifion Jones, after er becoming depressed and finding that there was no mental health support in Gwynedd. Anne discussed it with me when our house was bugged. Pete struggled after graduation; he I think received an ordinary degree and then had difficulty with the bank although he wasn’t a big spender. I was glad to find that a few years ago however, that Pete has made his way in his desired career. Pete is CEO of Bardsey Bird Reserve…

I haven’t seen Pete for years so I have no idea if he knew that the Gang killed Anne or whether he was told that a Nutter whom he knew at UCNW had Gone Really Mad, was Dangerous and Could Cause Embarrassment if she began contacting old pals now that she was back working at Bangor, so here’s a job running Bardsey but it would be best not to reply to her if she contacts you.

When Pete was an undergrad and struggling, he told the local mental health team that he felt suicidal and they gave him the number of the bus to the Menai Suspension Bridge, ‘if that’s what you want’. I had heard this before I met Anne and I thought it was students exaggerating, but no, it was Pete and Anne remembered it happening. This sort of thing is why there were so many conversations among the Bangor students re ‘The doctors and social workers here are really bad, my mum’s told me to go home’.

It was in 1980-81 that Pete was given the number of the appropriate bus…

Rhiannon’s father was killed by the Gang after he did so much for them, so Rhiannon – and her ex Richard Bentall – then participating in the witch-hunt re Merfyn and me seems a little pathetic. Did Doug and Dinsdale nail your dad’s ear to the floor because he deserved it then Rhiannon? They woz cruel but fair?


After Oliver Wrong worked at Hammersmith, he was appointed to the Chair of Medicine at Dundee University in 1969. BLUGLASS In 1972 Wrong returned to UCH and succeeded Professor Charles Dent as a Professor of Medicine.

accounts of Wrong as a total genius, a polymath and blue skies thinker who made breakthrough after breakthrough re nephrology – completely inconsistent with the reality of treatment for kidney patients at the time – Wrong’s colleague William Asscher trained at the Royal London Hospital, specialised in nephrology, relocated to Cardiff in the mid 1960s – became the lead nephrologist in Cardiff – covered up for George Thomas, Gwynne, Dafydd – kidney services remained dreadful, esp in north wales. Ysbyty Gwynedd only secured its own dialysis facilities in DATE – 1985?? CHECK when Asscher finally arranged it. YG did a deal with Asscher over me –

1988 – asscher headhunted for post of dean of St George’s after Ollie – I was given the job with chamberlain in 1989 – a trap – in 1990, asscher expanded the kidney charidee that he had founded a few years previously – Kidney Wales – into a lobbying organisation re organ transplant – held a jamboree on college green outside parliament on DATE 1990, as the Gang were mounting repeated High Court cases against me – All Welsh MPs supported Asscher’s charidee, Welsh Office Secretary of State David Hunt led the charge, with his Minister Gwilym NAME acting as the henchman. The opposition joined the knees-up, including Rhodri Morgan. Thus the heart of the Westminster Paedophile Ring had a party in public dressed up as a medical charidee. See post ‘The Paedophiles’ Friends Of Cardiff North’.

In 1990, the Gang were targeting F with a view to fleecing him of his property, money and future child

One of Oliver’s sister Rosalind’s volumes was ‘Coping with Destitution: Poverty and Relief in Western Europe’ (Joanne Goodman Lecture) University of Toronto Press (1992).

Oliver Wrong, who had been diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis seven years earlier, was working on his final paper when admitted to Intensive Care Unit at UCH, the hospital at which he had spent most of his professional life. Wrong’s colleagues did their best but bechod…

Wrong died on 24 Feb 2012, one of the biggest and best Insider Witnesses in medicine, just after I had been threatened at gunpoint, before I was unlawfully detained at Wrexham Maelor Hospital, after being violently assaulted and injured in mid-Wales by the daughter of a barrister. Tony Francis was found dead not long afterwards, by which time I was in hiding. Hugh Bentall died on 9 Sept 2012.

Greig-Smith – died

Ralph Oxley –

Geoff Sagar –

Eric Sunderland –

whole cluster of others from Dept of Biology at Bangor died, of varying vintages

Oliver Wrong married Marilda Musacchio, a primary school teacher from the Val d’Aosta, Italy, in 1956. They had three daughters, one of whom is the author and journalist Michela Wrong.


The career of Sir Henry Yellowlees’s dad is another excellent example of stasis in medicine. Sir Henry’s dad was also Henry Yellowlees and of course the Royal College of Physicians ‘Munk’s Roll Lives of the Fellows’ online comes up trumps:

Henry Yellowlees

b.11 June 1888 d.5 April 1971
OBE(1918) MB ChB Glasg(1910) MD(1916) FRFPS(1919) MRCPE(1921) DPM Eng(1921) FRCPE(1925) MRCP(1930) FRCP(1935) FRCPG(1962)

Henry Yellowlees was honorary consultant physician in psychological medicine to St Thomas’s Hospital. He was born in Glasgow and educated at Kelvinside Academy and the University of Glasgow, where he graduated MB ChB in 1910. He was the younger son of David Yellowlees, a consulting physician and superintendent of a mental hospital,

Sir Henry’s GRANDDAD banged up Nutters as well! David will have been a Top Doc of the generation who taught Gwynne’s teachers…

and his wife, Federata Williamson, who was the daughter of a Presbyterian minister.

After house appointments at the Western Infirmary, Glasgow; Perth District Mental Hospital; and the Royal Hospital, Morningside, Edinburgh, he joined the RAMC in 1915 and served in France with the rank of captain. He was mental specialist in the Etaples hospital area, was twice mentioned in despatches and awarded the OBE in 1918.

Sir Henry’s dad was a Top Doc who treated soldiers with shell-shock so brutally that they will have preferred to return to the trenches rather than remain under his ‘care’. He’ll have probably been instrumental in having a few men shot for cowardice as well. Sir Henry’s dad will also have believed that officers don’t get shell-shock, or at least not the sort of shell-shock that the other ranks developed.

After the war he was appointed lecturer and assistant to the professor of psychiatry at the University of Edinburgh, becoming physician superintendent of The Retreat, York, in 1922.

That was one hell of a job to have for a psychiatrist of his era, you don’t get much grander than that.

In 1929 he was appointed physician for mental diseases and lecturer in psychological medicine at St Thomas’s.

Unless you’re appointed physician for mental diseases and lecturer in psychological medicine at St Thomas’s, obviously.

With the exception of a short break during the second world war, when he was consultant psychiatrist to the BEF, Henry Yellowlees held these two appointments for twenty years. He also established a flourishing private consultant practice in London. He obtained his MRCP in 1930, was elected a Fellow in 1935 and served as examiner for the College from 1936 to 1939. After retirement he continued his London practice, but moved to the Circus, Bath, in 1956, where he undertook consulting work and joined the Bath Clinical Society.

He was a very popular lecturer with both medical and lay audiences and published extensively. Well known works include A Manual of Psychotherapy (1923), Clinical Lectures on Psychological Medicine (1932), Out of Working Hours (1942), The Human Approach (1946), To Define True Madness (1953) and Frames of Mind (1957).

In 1918 he married Dorothy, daughter of Arthur John Davis, a chartered accountant, and they had two sons (one of whom, Sir Henry Yellowlees, FRCP, became Chief Medical Officer, DHSS, DES and Home Office) and a daughter. They entertained a great deal at their London home and had a wide circle of friends.

Henry was a man of very strong personality and a great clinical teacher. He spanned the transition period between the alienists and the more or less dynamic psychologists. He had been steeped in academic and institutional alienism since childhood, for his father’s position as an academic alienist and practitioner was fully recognized by Glasgow University.

See the source image

At the same time he acquired the traditions of university education and the disciplines of a therapeutic eclectic, but unlike most eclectics he stuck firmly to what he conceived to be general principles. He distrusted the influence of German psychiatry, then making itself felt in Britain; and his esteem for Freud, who had been to psychology ‘all that Darwin was to biology’, was only tempered by his love for Shakespeare, in whose characters he could discern all the prototypes of psychiatric illness.

Donald Acheson – Lord Denning turf


Throughout the period of time the events involving Jacqui NAMES HERE et al that Shocked and Disgusted William Mars-Jones and were therefore the focus of An Investigation were alleged to have taken place, senior North Wales Police officer Gordon Anglesea abused boys from Bryn Estyn while playing golf with members of Respectable Society in north Wales, using boys in care as caddies. From DATE Anglesea was stationed at Colwyn Bay and he lived there. Colwyn Bay housed the HQ of the North Wales Police and numerous senior staff of the NHS, County Councils, Social Services etc. The infamous Gwynfa Unit, for children and adolescents with mental health problems, was located in Colwyn Bay. Children at Gwynfa were beaten, dropped out of windows on their heads, raped and buggered. The manager of Gwynfa was a former North Wales Hospital Denbigh Angel, Nigel Mannering Berry. See ‘Don’t Be Silly, He’s Nice’.

Prof Robert Owen, Prof of Orthopaedic Surgery at Liverpool University and an NHS Ombudsman for Wales, lived at Colwyn Bay. After Owen was appointed by the Welsh Office in 1987 to whitewash the Gang’s criminality, Owen received phone calls, correspondence – and I expect visitors- regarding me at his home in Colwyn Bay.

Old Nick Edwards was the Welsh Secretary when the Gang unlawfully imprisoned me in the Bryn Golau Peep Show at Denbigh, but by the time that anyone had actually bothered to answer my letters and appoint Prof Owen to conduct the cover-up, Peter Walker was Welsh Secretary.

The Bryn Golau Peep Show Ward was commissioned by Old Nick at the Welsh Offfice after the Mary Wynch Scandal, designed by Gwynne and built very cheaply indeed in 1982, just after I arrived at UCNW and was sharing a house in Port Dinorwic with Frank Jones, a former kid in care, who was under attack from the Gang himself. The Gang had noticed my presence…

See the source image

When I lodged with Frank Jones, Hurd was Minister for Europe and Beata Brooks was a Tory MEP for north Wales.

Hurd was Home Secretary before the June 1987 General Election and remained in the post after the General Election, although there had been a reshuffle of paedophiles’ friends.

Old Nick stepped down as Welsh Secretary to make way for one of the Gang’s oldest buddies – and an old friend of my grandfather’s old foe Edward du Cann as well – after copies of my very serious complaint arrived on various desks…

See the source image

Four days after I was unlawfully imprisoned in the Bryn Golau Peep Show, Ollie Brooke, the Prof of Paediatrics at St George’s Hospital, was imprisoned for child porn offences. Ollie had his sentence reduced on appeal by Lord Justice Geoffrey Lane in May 1987. Old Nick stood down as Welsh Secretary at the June 1987 General Election. Ollie was actually released from jail just after the June 1987 General Election.

See the source image

Geoffrey Lane’s Deputy Chief Justice was Gwynne and Dafydd’s old mucker, bent Welsh barrister and judge, Greatest Living Welshman Sir Tasker Watkins, a former Military man and War Hero. See previous posts.

Tasker had been a Chairman of the Mental Health Review Tribunal Wales Region when Gwynne was lobotomising.

It was in 1986 that F was framed by the Gang for Class A drugs offences and arson, ending up in Risley and then Denbigh for a year. F had previously refused to keep quiet about the abuse of boys in a children’s home in Bangor. While he was in Risley, F received an undocumented visit from an aggressive unidentified detective from London grilling him about subjects of which F knew nothing. The detective became angry, yelled and swore at F, denounced him as a Nutter and shoved him back in his cell. When F was in Risley, he witnessed what was probably a murder of another Empowered Service User in the ‘hospital wing’ with him by a screw.

After my complaint had landed on desks in Feb 1987, the Gang formulated a Cunning Plan to have me framed for a serious offence and imprisoned soon after the June 1987 General Election. The Cunning Plan had 100% backing of the North Wales Police, Risley Remand Centre and the Mental Health Act Commission, as well as the Welsh Office and DHSS.

Norman Fowler, Secretary of State for the DHSS, 14 September 1981-13 June 1987:

John Moore, Secretary of State for the DHSS, 13 June 1987-25 July 1988:

See the source image

Thatch split the DHSS in July 1988 and Moore remained as Secretary of State for Social Security, 25 July 1988-23 July 1989. Moore lived in Wimbledon, a neighbour of Prof Geoffrey Chamberlain et al; I was lured into the trap which was my job with Chamberlain in April 1989, the year that Gwynne’s mate Lord John Walton stepped down as President of the GMC, leaving the scene of the crime. Walton bagged his peerage on 24 July 1989.

See the source image

Walton was Mr Big of the ring in the North East and, like Sir Charles Evans, was a neurosurgeon.

Douglas was Home Secretary, 2 September 1985-26 October 1989. Another Douglas, Hogg, was a junior Minister in the Home Office, 10 September 1986-26 July 1989; so Hogg, a QC himself, was party to a great deal of very serious crime. Douglas Hogg’s dad was of course Huge Hogg aka Lord Hailsham, so long a supporter of the Gang, including throughout the difficult time that was the Profumo Affair, when Huge Hogg was Lord President of the Council and therefore also the visitor for UCNW. See previous posts for discussion of the extended family of Hoggs and the huge damage that they have inflicted on those who dared challenge the Gang.

To those of my generation, Huge Hogg is fondly remembered as a ludicrous, insane, bigoted, fat old git who sat on the Woolsack and delighted in shouting in Latin at young journos whom he knew would not have studied Latin.

Quintin Hogg, Baron Hailsham, in 1990

However it was not always thus. Huge Hogg in his youth had been a keen mountaineer – Huge Hogg broke his ankles in a climbing accident which was why he limped and walked with the stick that doubled up as something to wave at people – and he knew Sir Charles Evans et al…

See the source image

F was someone who did know schoolboy Latin, having gone to a rather posh prep school. I therefore presume that when Huge Hogg and his mates in the Intelligence services tapped our phone in the 1990s, they’ll have understood when F told Dafydd in Latin that he was ludicrous and then continued to give Dafydd a lesson in Latin grammar, precisely the declension of the verb ‘ludicrous’.

Huge Hogg was Lord High Chancellor, May 1979-13 June 1987. Huge Hogg was on hand to assist with the Cunning Plan, but when the time came for the perjury and wrongful arrest in July, Huge Hogg had left the scene of the crime, to be replaced as Lord High Chancellor by Lord Michael Havers. Who was a neighbour and the constituency MP of Ollie’s pal and Defender Prof Geoffrey Chamberlain (and of course John Moore, Wimbledon’s man at the DHSS) and had just finished being Attorney General when so many innocent people were fitted up and so many serious criminals were allowed to Abuse In Plainsight. Or in the case of the Denbigh Dungeon, Murder In Plainsight. See ‘Hey, Hey, DAJ, How Many Kids Did You Kill Today?’

See the source image

Huge Hogg told the press after Victory had been declared re the Falklands on 14 June 1982, that it woz God wot had won it for us. God came through for Thatch and the murdering paedophiles in June 1987 as well, because as any fule kno God votes Conservative. A lot more Top Docs and NHS staff did that than admitted it in June 1987 as well, because all the main party leaders knew about the Cunning Plan – IT WAS OLLIE BEING CAUGHT WOT WORRIED THEM – and the vain foolish idiots all thought that they could benefit. Particularly this one:

In the event only Thatch fully benefited and to a lesser extent Ieuan Wyn Jones, who won Anglesey for Plaid. Unless Greig-Smith supported Plaid, he let the side down there on a Llandegfan-level.

Sadly for Greig-Smith, Alwyn Jones, my solicitor in Bangor, who refused to take up the matter of repeated perjury, fabrication of evidence etc, was a friend of the then Bangor-based solicitor Ieuan Wyn Jones. I don’t think that Alwyn had much love for Dafydd, but Alwyn didn’t want to be found dead and neither did his wife, who worked as a solicitor for Gwynedd County Council and neither did Alwyn’s father-in-law who was a retired policeman and Freemason in Bangor. Ieuan was born in Denbigh and his dad was the Methodist Minister there and knew Dafydd and Gwynne; Ieuan’s wife grew up just outside Denbigh and was an Angel and midwife. Ieuan stood as the Plaid candidate for Denbigh in DATE. I doubt that Ieuan and his wife liked Dafydd and Gwynne either but they didn’t want to die; although obviously Ieuan’s wife did die in 2014 after the Top Docs Did All That They Could, so what a pity that weak dim Ieuan didn’t help those of us who could have had those bastards jailed decades previously.

Ieuan’s wife, being a midwife who lived on Anglesey, will have known the Sister Midwife who lived at Llandegfan who ignored the abuse, butchery and murder of the Gang. However at least the teenagers in Llandegfan gained a great deal of light entertainment from the size of that Senior Angel’s husband’s testicles. I heard many times that they were enormous; those testicles were a local topic of conversation among the schoolkids. They were described in detail in my house in 1984

when we were bugged by MI5 so don’t tell me that Huge Hogg didn’t kn

Gwynfa Unit was so indefensible that it was closed shortly before the Waterhouse Inquiry. It was replaced by Cedar Court, run by one of Dafydd’s ex-wives. Cedar Court was closed down after an investigation revealed it to be completely unsuitable, but not before Estyn, the Education Inspectorate for Wales, gave it a glowing bill of health after an inspection… See previous posts.

After his retirement, Nigel Mannering Berry served as a Director of Colwyn May Masonic Hall, as discussed previously…

The local constituency Tory Party in the Colwyn Bay area was strong – it was a safe Tory seat and had been for years – and included many friends of Gwynne, Dafydd and the Mars-Jones’s, including Beata Brookes.

Brookes went back as far as the 1950s with Gwynne, Dafydd and the Tory Party, as well as with Peter Walker, Hurd’s colleague in Thatch’s Cabinet and their partner in crime David Hunt.

See the source image

See the source image

Peter Walker was a friend and business colleague of Jim Slater, a friend of Edward du Cann.

See the source image

Slater was a friend and colleague of Nigel Lawson.

Tebbs also bumped into Peter Walker et al in the Young Conservatives in the 1950s but Tebbs doesn’t boast about that too loudly.

Geoffrey Howe grew up in south Wales and worked as a barrister on the corrupt Chester and Wales Circuit. Howe and his wife were close friends of Waterhouse and his wife from their 20s onwards. When Howe bagged Big Jobs, such as Foreign Secretary and Chancellor, Ronnie Waterhouse enjoyed his stays at Howe’s Official Residences.

Beata Brookes knew Hurd as well. Brookes served as a Tory MEP for North Wales, 1979-89. Her early career had been as a Denbighshire social worker. Beata was Chair of Clwyd Social Services Committee, a member of Clwyd Health Authority and held numerous positions in north Wales charidees for the disabled, as well as on bodies concerned with the NHS/social care system and its regulation. The males of the Brookes family, including Beata’s brother Henry, were high profile Freemasons and leading figures in the NFU. CHECK.

On one occasion, the Brookes family hired the services of Dai Bananas (a former Lord Chancellor) in the event of a petty local spat with the Council, that even in the events of them winning, would never have been worth Dai Bananas’ fee. However, it did show everyone that the Brookes’s and their Friends Shall Not Be Mocked.

See the source image

Dai Bananas, Tory politician who drafted the European Convention of Human Rights and at the same time as being virulently and outspokenly homophobic did everything possible to ensure that the ground was fully prepared for Gwynne and Dafydd to go into production re child sex workers, in particular boys (see previous posts):

See the source image

Beata, after a lifetime of facilitating a trafficking gang:

See the source image

Beata Brookes loathed a fellow member of the Gang, Sir Anthony Meyer, Tory MP for West Flintshire, 1970-83 and the pitched battle between them over which one of them should bag the nomination as the Tory candidate for the newly created constituency of Clwyd North West in 1983 nearly destroyed the local Tory Party. Meyer wanted the Chairman of the Party Cecil Parkinson to intervene, but Cecil knew that Gwynne and Dafydd were involved so Cecil kept out of it, particularly as Cecil had more immediate concerns…

Thatch and Parkinson knew that Sara Keays, Parkinson’s long-term mistress, was pregnant with Parkinson’s baby and eventually that would become public.. Parkinson had unceremoniously dumped Sara and her family, an Army Tory family in Bath, were furious. Sara had wanted to become a Tory MP and her family were deeply upset when the Party machine savaged her.

My leftie mates all commented at the time ‘How could she not know what that lot were like?’ but there were old Sir Herbert Gussets in the shires who I don’t think did have any idea of the depths to which some of the Party had sunk or what they were prepared to do to bury bad news. Even I am impressed at what was done to my friends and I after we trod on Gwynne’s toes or indeed after my grandfather jumped up and down on Edward du Cann’s knackers decades previously. I’m even more impressed that someone killed Brown’s father shortly after the Waterhouse Report, Brown’s father being as Of Them as one could ever have been.

The sadness is that if info can bring down a Gov’t or result in Brenda and the firm being covered in slurry, one can expect absolutely everyone whom one has ever known to be bribed, or if that doesn’t work, threatened or blackmailed and not many people feel able to withstand that sort of pressure. To do so one has to be very unmaterialistic and immune to sneers of ‘Well look where it’s got you’ and not afraid to tell just about everyone ‘So I was able to stand up to a bunch of criminals who were molesting kids whom you now all claim to find ‘abhorrent’. Why did you make friends with them then because you knew what they were doing…’

I have just read another flurry of articles on ‘The Guardian’ online about how They Won’t Rest Until Sexual Harassment of Girls Is Illegal etc. Well what hampered them before then and why are they still churning out PR materials for the NHS which is a major source of distress and even abuse for vulnerable people?

Peter Preston could have published years ago re Dafydd, Gwynne, Peter Morrison et al and got rid of Thatch. He didn’t, instead he published flattering articles about Eric Hobsbawm and libelled Graham Day who had stood up to the Gang. See eg. ‘Badlands’.

Bath had an organised abuse problem of its own anyway; the Bishop of Bath and Wells was concealing a great deal, Jeremy Fry – Lord Snowdon’s mate – was there, as were rich celebs with Class A drug problems, some of whom were using kids and vulnerable people for sex.

Cecil Parkinson’s daughter Mary developed addiction problems herself and worked as a prostitute; Mary was found dead some two years ago which I find deeply worrying, Mary having been a witness to so much. See previous posts. It’s what Edward du Cann and his mates had planned for me wasn’t it, one wonders if Cecil pissed off some very nasty branches of his own network. D.G.E. Wood and co had control of Bath within their Bristol empire

and all the detox clinics and Help that Mary received was Of That Lot, no-one would have been there to tell her ‘Don’t go near them, find another structure to support you, don’t go near any of them…’

David Hunt – who succeeded Peter Walker as Welsh Secretary, 4 May 1990-27 May 1993 and then made another brief reappearance in that post, 26 June 1995-5 July 1995, when the very sticky problem that was Dafydd’s ‘retirement’ and the ‘closure’ of Denbigh had to be lied about – is now Mr Big in ‘international law firm’ DAC Beachcroft, which acts for the MDU.

David Hunt the son of a Royal Navy officer, David who grew up in Denbighshire, went to public school in Liverpool, read law at Bristol University when D.G.E. Wood was a med student there, who remained in Bristol after graduation ‘working for the Conservative Party in the West Country’ and then in 1976 succeeded Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate Selwyn Lloyd as the MP for the Wirral, thus becoming the MP of so many of the more affluent who were assisting in running Dafydd’s Merseyside empire…

I’ve been told that the war between Beata and Sir Anthony was another event in which my presence at UCNW was a factor, although I was completely unaware of this at the time. The Gang had me in their sights, the security services had Brown, my friends and I under surveillance and by Feb 1983, Brown was receiving threats to murder him and an MI5 plant had arrived to share our student house at Llandegfan, who cost us much time, money and energy.

Hurd was still Minister of State for Europe when the Tories in the Colwyn Bay area went for each other’s jugulars over the matter of whether Beata, a Tory MEP, should secure a Westminster seat.

Meyer eventually won the nomination via Court action; Sir Anthony had even closer links to the security services than Beata did. After the June 1983 election, at which Meyer was elected as the Tory MP for the newly created Clwyd North West, Douglas was appointed as a Minister at the Home Office, under Home Secretary Leon Brittan. Brittan served as Home Secretary, 11 June 1983-2 September 1985, while the Gang moved in on me proper…

In DATE Leon was given a dossier of the names of Westminster and Whitehall figures whom Geoffrey Dickens – the Tory MP for Huddersfield West, May 1979-June 1983 and Littleborough and Saddleworth, June 1983-17 May 1995 – maintained were molesting children, using kids for porn and flogging Class A drugs. Mr Dickens was talking about Gwynne and Dafydd’s business. Geoffrey Dickens was subjected to a smear campaign and constructed as a national joke, but interestingly for such a figure of fun, Dickens also received death threats. One Greville Janner accused Mr Dickens of anti-Semitism.

Leon later claimed that he had never received Geoffrey’s dossier; then Leon remembered that he had received the dossier but couldn’t remember into which drawer he had stuffed such a trivial document. Leon mislaid quite a few documents directly relating to Gwynne, Dafydd and Westminster Paedophile Ring. They still have not been found, despite so much searching.


Dickens – Sir Peter Hayman – It was later admitted by Lord Michael Havers, Thatch’s Attorney General, 6 May 1979-13 June 1987, that he had blocked the prosecution of Hayman for child porn offences. Investigations and prosecutions against other VIP sex offenders including Cyril Smith were, it has now been admitted, inexplicably dropped or obstructed when Havers, the Tory MP for Wimbledon, 18 June 1970-11 June 1987. Havers was Heath’s Solicitor General, Nov 1972-4 March 1974, which spanned the arrival of Matt Arnold and Peter Howarth in north Wales from the ring in the North East.

Havers was the barrister for the Crown in the Guildford Four and Macguire Seven trials and when the victims of those substantial miscarriages of justice were finally cleared, it was accepted that Havers was well-aware that the cases for the prosecution were deeply flawed.

Havers was the man whose comments regarding the Peter Sutcliffe case in terms of Sutcliffe’s victims “Some were prostitutes, but perhaps the saddest part of the case is that some were not. The last six attacks were on totally respectable women.” caused uproar. The situation was far worse than a high profile barrister believing that women who are not respectable are less deserving of sympathy when attacked by a serial killer; Havers knew that some of the most Respectable people on the planet – six year old children – were being multiply assaulted and trafficked by Gwynne, Dafydd et al.

Havers simply knew that whenever questions were asked, the first line of defence was to raise questions re the target’s Respectability. It was the MO used in my own case. I was not a Totally Respectable Woman in the way that Havers’ sister Lord Elizabeth Butler-Sloss was – I’ve never been a member of the General Synod of the C of E – but I most definitely was not what the Gang maintained that I was. Their declaration of my friend Anne to be a prostitute – whom they then murdered  (see post ‘A Trail Of Blood’) – was farcical. Anne was raised in affluent Surrey, went to an all-girls grammar school, had never had a boyfriend until her second year at UCNW and at the age of 22 didn’t want to tell her mum that she was sharing a house with her boyfriend lest it upset her mum…

Furthermore when I used to chat to Anne about what I have now been told was the ring operating in the Bridgwater schools and I mentioned that there were indeed girls in my school who were in sexual relationships with adult men when they were 14, Anne initially refused to believe me. If anyone can find me a prostitute who spends her time birding, wearing a track suit and wellies and being an active member of the Anglesey Bat Group, please do point me in their direction.

Sutcliffe was of course not arrested for years, although he was stopped by police who were Looking For The Ripper many times and on one such occasion he had the tools that he used to murder people in his car. Sutcliffe was not arrested because he was on the turf of Savile and huge police corruption and no-one quite knew what to do when those murders began happening, so many people were compromised.

See the source image

Sutcliffe was jailed, Havers rejecting the Evidence of four Top Docs that Sutcliffe had Paranoid Schizophrenia – the Experts were those we know and love – but after some time in jail, Sutcliffe was transferred to that well-know Holiday Camp, Broadmoor. Savile was running the Holiday Camp by then and made friends with Sutcliffe. I suspect that Savile might have known Sutcliffe before they met at the Holiday Camp; Dafydd was also involved in the Sutcliffe case somewhere.

Lord Havers was forced to resign as Lord Chancellor in Oct 1987 on the grounds of ill-health. Havers died at the age of 69 on 1 April 1992, some three weeks before the Brighton Firebomb killed five witnesses to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. The man who had (allegedly) confessed to starting the fire was killed by a lorry on a country lane days later. Two of those who survived the firebomb died within the next few years, one of them immediately after he had given evidence in Court against John Allen. See ‘The Silence Of The Welsh Lambs’.

Havers’ house in Woodhayes Road, Wimbledon, was bombed by the Provisional IRA on 13 November 1981; Havers and his family were in Spain at the time of the attack.

In spite of all those favours for the Gang and their mates then, some dangerous people were quite cross with Lord Havers, who was in Inner Temple, as was Mr Thrope and Havers’ sister, Lord Elizabeth Butler-Sloss who covered up the ring in the North East when she was Chair of the Cleveland Child Abuse Inquiry, 1987-88. ‘The Guardian’ loved Lord Elizabeth at the time, there was acres of admiring comment about her Wisdom, Compassion, Womanly Qualities When Discussing Infant Anuses in which Dafydd’s Friends In The North had such an interest etc. See eg. ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas and The Culprits Were Named’.

It was left to ‘Viz’ magazine with their popular ‘The Bottom Inspectors’ cartoon to expose the insanity that prevailed and the ludicrous excuses used by people who could not bear to admit that the Top Docs in the North East were doing something quite odd. The Bottom Inspectors let rip in the North East when Alison Taylor, Mary Wynch and I refused to shut up about the Gang; the Bottom Inspecting began with a vengeance in 1987 when Lord John Walton was still Chairman of the GMC.

Nigel Havers was born in Edmonton, the area in which Deb Everard lived, Everard being the unpleasant lab technician at St George’s who was afforded 100% protection by Geoffrey Chamberlain, even when her wrongdoing was so great that disciplinary action was finally taken against her. Everard was a Tory Councillor in Edmonton and as discussed in previous posts, that crew used every weapon at their disposal, including all people with influence who had any links to Edmonton.

Lord Havers was a great one for the Garrick, the club favoured by lawyers, judges and folk from the theatre/media. William Mars-Jones virtually lived at the Garrick, Robin Day was a regular there and Ronnie Waterhouse hammered on the door loudly until they let him in because Ronnie knew that membership was an essential requirement for a bent lawyer if one was to make it big.

After Greville Janner was interviewed under police caution in 1990 – George Carman was on standby because the evidence against Janner was substantial – a file was sent to the CPS but no prosecution was mounted. It has been confirmed many times that no-one can explain why because the evidence was damning. Havers had by then been succeeded as AG by Paddy Mayhew. Paddy was a barrister who back in the 1970s had worked for the MDU. It was Paddy who had acted in the case of the paedophile Belfast-based child psychiatrist Dr Morris Fraser when he faced a GMC Fitness to Practice hearing after being convicted of child sex offences in the US. Paddy and the GMC came through for Fraser, he was allowed to continue practising.

In Belfast, Fraser had been considered a Pioneering Top Doc, Ah he does wonderful work with the children growing up in the Troubles. Fraser was the Top Doc who predicted future mass insanity among the population of N Ireland who had been children during the Troubles. Fraser was doing his Wonderful Work with the kids at the Kincora Boys Home, among others. Fraser received much favourable media coverage, including on prime time London-based TV.

Sir Charles Evans’s Everest Hero colleague and Military Intelligence pal John Hunt was the man who in Oct 1969 wrote the Hunt Report that advised on policing in N Ireland.

See the source image

After that appearance in front of the GMC, Fraser relocated to the mainland to work, precisely at UCL and Springfield, the mental health unit attached to St George’s…

Paddy was a member of Middle Temple, as was Waterhouse and indeed Greville.

See the source image

Paddy was AG, 13 June 1987-10 April 1992 and authorised every one of the High Court cases that the Gang brought against me during 1990 and 91; there were about seven in total, but the documentation relating to the cases in which the stitch-ups were most ominous has disappeared off of the face of the earth. See ‘More Antonin Artaud’ and the comments that follow that post.

Prof Nigel Eastman, St Helena’s friend who works at St George’s/Springfield and ignored what was happening to me but simply in Feb 1991 told me to go back to north Wales because Dafydd was my doctor and knew me (see eg. ‘Some Very Eminent Psychiatrists In London…’), was a barrister as well as a Top Doc. Eastman had by then been told by his colleague at Springfield Robin Jacobson that Dafydd had told Jacobson on the phone that I was ‘attractive and seductive’ and that he ‘had a soft spot’ for me. Jacobson told Eastman that Dafydd was sexually involved with patients and that he suspected Tony Francis was as well.

Hamid Ghodse, Tony Francis’s old mate from their days as junior docs in Cardiff/south Wales, worked at Springfield in the drugs team. Prof Hamid Ghodse was an International Expert in Substance Abuse, who worked at Springfield, where a trafficking ring dealing in Class A drugs was in operation. Hamid is now dead but his widow Barbara remains, Barbara who also held/holds senior roles in the NHS… See previous posts.

After Jacobson held his phone conversation with Dafydd, he told his junior docs Ruth White and Alice Levinson to speak to Lucille Hughes and Tony Francis to gain evidence of my Dangerousness, as Dafydd had recommended. Jacobson was also happy to tell third parties, including Eastman, that I had ’caused chaos’ in north Wales, had stopped the mental health services from functioning up there and had ‘broken into’ Dafydd’s office and threatened him ‘in such a way that he believed that he would be killed there and then’.

Douglas was Foreign Secretary at the time.

Anyone remember the first Gulf War and Operation Desert Storm?

Choose your weapons as Douglas advised, here’s a particularly phallic SCUD Transporter Erector Missile Launcher:

Ground troop movements 24–28 February 1991 during Operation Desert Storm

The ground campaign consisted of three or possibly four of the largest tank battles in American military history. The US Marine Corps fought the biggest tank battle in its history at Kuwait International Airport. The Iraqis suffered the loss of over 3,000 tanks and over 2,000 other combat vehicles during these battles against the American-led coalition.

Kuwait’s liberation:

Two Iraqi tanks lie abandoned near Kuwait City on 26 February 1991.

For months, American units in Saudi Arabia had been under almost constant Iraqi artillery fire, as well as threats from Scud missile or chemical attacks. On 24 February 1991, the 1st and 2nd Marine Divisions and the 1st Light Armored Infantry Battalion crossed into Kuwait and headed toward Kuwait City. They encountered trenches, barbed wire, and minefields. However, these positions were poorly defended, and were overrun in the first few hours. Several tank battles took place, but otherwise coalition troops encountered minimal resistance, as most Iraqi troops surrendered. The general pattern was that the Iraqis would put up a short fight before surrendering. However, Iraqi air defences shot down nine US aircraft. Meanwhile, forces from Arab states advanced into Kuwait from the east, encountering little resistance and suffering few casualties…

Sir Charles Evans’s mate John Hunt was the first Director of the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, a post he held from 1956-66. In Brenda’s Birthday Honours in 1966, Hunt bagged a peerage.

Happily, George – a big fan of the Royals – lived long enough to enjoy Diana’s televised funeral, preceded by Brenda’s Tribute on TV, after Brenda had eventually got her arse down to London from Balmoral at the urging of ‘The Sun’ to Show Us You Care Ma’am!

whom I encountered in early 1991. White by that time was a senior doc who had been practising for years and held an academic post as a Senior Lecturer at St George’s Hospital Medical School, she was not the tea lady.

Alice Levinson for years ran a private psychoanalytic/therapy practice in Richmond-upon-Thames and also held an academic post, although I note that she has now turned up on the East England NHS website as a ‘Consultant Psychiatrist in Psychotherapy’. Alice supervised/supervises other analysts, including at PhD level. Richmond-upon-Thames hosted one of the big rings for decades, an arrangement facilitated considerably by the appointment of Louis Minster, an active paedophile, as Director of Richmond-upon-Thomas Social Services. As a younger social worker in Oxfordshire, Minster’s manager had been Barbara Khan, who, with her husband child psychiatrist Dr Vladimir Khan, facilitated abuse, including in Oxfordshire, Douglas’s turf when he entered the Commons in Feb 1974, at the same time as Peter Morrison. The Grocer’s Secretary of State for the DHSS Sir Keith Joseph appointed Babs as his children’s social work adviser. See post ‘Always On The Side Of The Children’. Douglas was working as the Grocer’s Private Secretary at the time.

The Top Docs’ chutzpah has to be admired. Alice Levinson is the crème de la crème in analysis; she trained at Tommy’s with the poshest (Tommy’s is of course the local hospital for Parliament) as a Top Doc. Alice has undertaken extensive training in analysis and psychotherapy, she has academic credibility and is now a senior figure in her field. In 1991, I witnessed Alice working with gangsters running a trafficking ring, whom Alice knew were gangsters running a trafficking ring and Alice worked with them for quite a while. Alice took their word re my ‘history’ and my ‘mental state’, she refused to treat me or help in any way although she noted that I was suicidal because of the constant arrests at the behest of the gangsters. Alice discharged me homeless, with no aftercare, no job and no income and her only advice to her colleagues was that I should be ‘referred to the forensic team for containment’. See previous posts.

Alice, the best that one can get in UK analysis.

Alice’s constituency MP was/is Zac, who was elected after being selected as the candidate for Richmond via Call Me Dave’s A list. Call Me Dave’s own constituency was the one formerly held by Douglas Hurd. Call Me Dave’s dad was Chairman of White’s club, of which Peter Morrison was a member when Ian Cameron was Chairman.

Ian Cameron spent his career in the City, as had his father before him. He kicked this off with two years as a banker at Robert Fleming before following the family tradition by entering Panmure Gordon; Cameron became a partner before the age of 30. Moving into a flat in Basil Street, Knightsbridge,

Ian Cameron threw what a friend described as “endless parties with the most beautiful girls”.

Ian Cameron

Call Me Dave’s mum Mary sat on the Oxford Magistrates Bench. As any fule kno, Call Me Dave’s brother Alexander Cameron is a QC who has starred in a few questionable legal battles (see previous posts). However I have not yet blogged about Call Me Dave’s maternal grandfather. Mary Cameron’s dad was Lt Col Sir William Malcolm Mount 2nd Baronet, (28 December 1904-22 June 1993). Eldest son of Sir William Arthur Mount, 1st Baronet and wife Hilda Lucy Adelaide Low, Mount was educated at Eton and New College, Oxford. New College was a favourite recruiting ground for the British security services (see eg. ‘A Study In Tyranny’); Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate Richard Crossman was recruited at New College. Crossman was of a very similar age to William Mount.

William Mount married Elizabeth Nance Llewellyn (born in Staffordshire, 22 December 1904-1994). Mount’s eldest daughter, Cameron’s auntie, Cecilia Mary (born 1931) married Sir William Dugdale, Warwickshire landowner and former Chairman of Aston Villa FC and is the mother of the documentary filmmaker Joshua Dugdale.

On 25 February 1924, Willian Mount was commissioned in the 99th (Bucks and Berks Yeomanry), a TA unit of the Royal Regiment of Artillery, Mount served in WW II and was wounded at D-Day in Normandy and transferred to the Reconnaissance Corps on 14 September 1941.

Mount had interest in aviation, being a Director of the Miles Aircraft Company. In 1950 he stood trial with F.G. Miles on 24 charges of making false and reckless statements in connection with the 1946 Miles share prospectus. Mount went on to develop Brimpton Airfield.

Mount was appointed as High Sheriff of Berkshire and Vice-Lieutenant for Berkshire in 1960.

Mount died at the age of 88 on 29 June 1993. At the time, F and I were awaiting trial after we had been charged on the basis of Gwynedd social worker Jackie Brandt’s perjury. F was also in the midst of his battle with the Gang in the wake of them encouraging the predators who fleeced him and hijacked his baby in Dec 1992 to make further allegations about F in return for goodies. It was in the summer of 1993 that the predators were also encouraged to target me in their efforts to extract further dosh, after having bled F dry. During the summer of 1993, WPC Jo Bott, the child protection officer for Gwynedd, the Hergest Unit and the GPs at Bethesda Surgery, all ignored F’s concerns re two people with a history of child abuse who were members of the family with which his baby had been placed. One of those about whom F raised concerns was reported again to Bethesda Surgery just weeks later by third parties after bagging a ‘babysitting’ job. The person concerned simply moved house so that he was no longer a neighbour of those for whom he was ‘babysitting’ and there was no further action taken…

Following that, the mother and sister of the man who’s conduct had now been brought to the attention of the child protection services in Gwynedd repeatedly were prioritised for two North Wales Housing Association new builds, without ever having been on the housing list, which caused a near riot in Bethesda as there was an accommodation crisis at the time. Then one of their best friends, who had also made unfounded allegations about F and tried to pressurise me into parting with money in the direction of the predators, moved into a North Wales Housing Association new build just down the road from the predators. I have been told that the Houses For All were secured in a direct exchange for lies about F to the child protection team and Gwynedd Councillor Dafydd Orwig was the broker as it were. Orwig was a retired lecturer from the Bangor Normal College – an institution managed and staffed by Dafydd’s mates – who pretty much ran Bethesda. See eg. ‘Thought For The Day’.

At the time of William Mount’s death, he had three daughters but no surviving sons so his baronetcy was inherited by his nephew Ferdinand. Ferdinand has starred on this blog before; Ferdinand is of course colloquially known as Thatch’s favourite sociologist.

Ferdinand Mount worked at Tory Party HQ as Head of Thatch’s No 10 Policy Unit, 1982–83, when I was in the vicinity of Hurd’s Man In Llandegfan.

Ferdinand has written for numerous publications, often of a Tory variety and serves as Chairman of the Friends of the British Library

Ferdinand was only son of Robert Mount and Lady Julia Pakenham, youngest daughter of the 5th Earl of Longford, KP, thus Julia was THE Lord Longford’s sister. Lord Longford aka Frank Pakenham and most of his extended family concealed Gwynne and Dafydd’s criminality, as discussed in ‘Comedies Of Menace’.

Frank Packenham married Elizabeth Harman, Harriet’s auntie. Elizabeth Harman’s dad was Top Doc Nathaniel Bishop Harman. Elizabeth’s brother Top Doc John B. Harman, was Harriet’s dad. John Harman knew Dafydd and Gwynne and, through Oundle School, the Top Docs and others in Sir Clough’s circle who colluded with Gwynne and Dafydd, including the particularly culpable facilitators of organised abuse: Minister of Health, 1964-68, Sir Kenneth Robinson; David Lewis Davies, Dean of the Maudsley when Dafydd passed through there; Sir John Ellis of the Royal London Hospital; and William Trethowan SPELL who was Chair of the GMC Panel that allowed Morris Fraser to continue to practice. See previous posts.

Trethowan’s family virtually ran Guy’s Hospital of Uncle Harry and Sister Hutt’s dad fame. Dafydd’s old Maudsley mate Jim Watson subsequently worked as a Sex Therapist at St George’s and then at Guy’s and Tommy’s. The Gang’s mate orthopaedic surgeon Prof Robert Owen who came to the Gang’s aid in 1987-89 trained at Guy’s.

Dr Death knew ’em all…

Harriet’s dear old dad died on 13 Nov 1994, nine days after Dafydd obtained his injunction against F and I from Liverpool High Court on the basis of an extraordinary affidavit in which Dafydd discussed his anus, detailed a raspberry that F had blew down the phone at him months previously and provided a full account of me throwing a brick through Dafydd’s glass door in the early hours in the Spring of 1994, which an accomplice of Dafydd’s had planted, as the police and the MDU who acted for Dafydd knew within two weeks of Dafydd alleging that I had thrown the brick.

Douglas Hurd was Foreign Secretary at the time.

See the source image

After Harriet’s dad retired in 1972, he became President of the MDU, who were at the time employing a barrister called Mayhew…

Dr Death was appointed Minister of State in the DHSS on 26 July 1974, at about the time that the GMC decided that it was OK to continue to let Morris Fraser loose on the unsuspecting public. Douglas Hurd had been elected to the Commons five months previously.

See the source image


Zac Goldsmith’s dad was of course Sir Jams of Fishpaste, the mistresses, the nightclub, the huge quantities of dosh and the many links to the Posh End of Gwynne and Dafydd’s network, not least because of his friendship with John Aspinall and Lord Lucan’s crowd.

Previous posts have discussed this, particularly St George’s Hospital’s sectioning of Lady Lucan on the grounds of her Insanity when she turned up with serious head wounds screaming hysterical gibberish about that nice Lord Lucan having tried to murder her. Meanwhile a dead nanny was in the family home and Lord Lucan had disappeared never to be seen again. Lady Lucan had Been Seeing A Psychiatrist before that hysterical nonsense and the head wound; Lord Lucan called the Top Docs in after his wife began making Ridiculous Allegations. Lady Veronica Lucan then made more Ridiculous Allegations ie. that the psychiatrist was in cahoots with her husband and they were declaring her mad for their own ends.

I haven’t yet found out who the Private Psychiatrist was who was seeing Lady Lucan before she incurred the head wound and Sandra Rivett’s body was found in the house, but it will almost certainly have been one of the St George’s crowd. St George’s was located at Hyde Park Corner then and it had long hosted psychiatrists who concealed Naughtiness on the part of those in High Places. Mr Thrope paid for Norman Scott to be treated by St George’s Desmond Curran, an Expert In Perverts, after Norman had a breakdown in the 1960s largely as a result of Mr Thrope’s conduct. Curran was one of the founders of the Dept of Psychiatry at St George’s, which from it’s very beginnings served to facilitate the Westminster Paedophile Ring, as discussed in previous posts eg. ‘Meet The Gwerin!’.

Alice’s colleagues at Springfield named their Psychotherapy Wing after their pal, Prue Skynner, wife of Top Doc and analyst Robin. Robin is a close friend of John Cleese and they co-authored their best-selling books re ‘analysis for the educated layman’ when the Gang was receiving bad PR… I understand that Tony Francis may have had a hand in it.

Cleese got together with Dr Death in the mid-1980s and made party political broadcasts for the SDP-Lib Alliance. At the time, Mr Bridgy Celeb had been befriended by Zany Graham Chapman, who had trained as a Top Doc with Dafydd’s mates at Bart’s, climbed frequently in Snowdonia, knew them at the C&A Hospital and also sexually abused boys throughout his life. Chapman grew up in Leicester, the son of a policeman.

Tom King knew Mr Bridgy Celeb’s circle. Tom succeeded Douglas Hurd as N Ireland Secretary, 3 September 1985-24 July 1989.

Thatch appointed King as Secretary of State for Defence on 24 July 1989. Witness to much wrongdoing Graham Chapman died in Oct 1989, which defended quite a few. King stood down from Defence on 11 April 1992, days before the Brighton Firebomb killed the five witnesses to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal.

John Biffen was King’s Cabinet colleague and another of Thatch’s retainers who personally knew the family of Mr Bridgy Celeb. Biffen was Leader of the Commons, 7 April 1982-13 June 1987, after which he fell out with Thatch badly. John Biffen’s constituency was in Shropshire, on the turf of the ring linked to Gwynne and Dafydd, the activities of which have resulted in members of the Ormsby-Gore family being found dead in questionable circumstances so frequently, ever since David O-G aka Lord Harlech, Biffen’s predecessor in his Parliamentary seat, served as the US Ambassador and was on the scene when JFK was shot.



Tony and Sadie Francis arrived in north Wales in 1983, when Douglas was a Minister in the Home Office under Leon Brittan.

Leon was Home Secretary, 11 June 1983-2 Sept 1985; the Nice Young Drs Francis turned up in north Wales pretty much at the same time as Leon (and Douglas) turned up at the Home Office.

See the source image

In 1985, a friend of Samuel Brittan, Leon’s brother, grovelled to Sam when Sam demanded my friend’s head on a plate after she refused to pull strings to secure Sam tickets and a hotel for the Edinburgh Fringe after everything had sold out. My friend had known me since we were 12 and the security services had her under surveillance when she was at Stirling University, probably because she was a close friend of Brown and I and was supportive re the north Wales Gang.

Leon’s brother sought the help of reinforcements to flatten my friend soon after I had the first big row with Tony Francis after he told barefaced lies and then lied again about not having lied. I contacted Keith Best, then the Tory MP for Anglesey

about the constant misconduct of the mental health services; Best could not have been less interested and Francis had got to the Welsh Office before me anyway.

Someone who knew my friend at Stirling and whom she found in her bed on one occasion without her permission later made excellent use of his having known a close friend of mine, finding himself the FM of Scotland the year after the publication of the Waterhouse Report.

After the Drs Francis arrived in north Wales, UCNW students who complained about Gwynne were referred to Tony Francis; Sadie Francis initially worked as a junior doc at Denbigh.

The Drs Francis arrived in north Wales after war broke out in the Colwyn Bay area Tory Party that was settled by Sir Anthony Meyer winning via the Courts and then being elected as the Tory MP for the newly formed Clwyd North West constituency in June 1983. Meyer’s grandmother, Adele Meyer, had been a friend of Bertrand Russell’s first wife Alys Pearsall and together they had established, in Camden, the forerunner to mother and baby clinics. Not that Adele’s and Alys’s organisation was what they thought, or claimed. See ‘International Women’s Day! Let’s Celebrate With Jane…’.

Meyer had previously been the Tory MP for Eton and Slough, 1964-66. After losing his seat, Meyer found that no constituency would touch him. However, Nigel Birch aka Lord Rhyl, the Tory MP for Flintshire, which evolved into West Flintshire, 1945-70, ensured that Meyer would succeed him in his seat. According to Meyer, this was no more than ‘one old Etonian doing a favour for another’.

While he was the MP for Clwyd North West, June 1983-April 1992, Meyer had two goes at knocking Thatch off of the throne; in both cases the Cunning Plan had been cooked up with Heseltine, with the Cunning Plans being for Heseltine to become Leader of the Tory Party and PM.

Image result for michael heseltine images

Meyer and Heseltine’s unsuccessful plots to install Heseltine as PM did result in Broughton DETAILS in Meyer’s constituency picking up lots of contracts, as did people associated with Westland Helicopters in Yeovil. The Westland Affair in 1985-86 was yet another event in which people in Somerset known to me starred, along with Leon Brittan, who was by then Secretary of State for the DTI. The Westland Affair began in April 1985 some three weeks before I had the first clash with Tony Francis over what Brown described as his ‘duplicity’. Thatch was nearly brought down by the Westland Affair but fancy footwork by mysterious forces that was never fully explained saved Thatch’s bacon and by Feb 1986 she was in the clear and rode on.

Douglas was Home Secretary and I was living down the road from Hurd’s Mole at the time. Many people benefited from Westland, but obviously not me or anyone who supported me. In April 1986, the Gang killed my friend Anne.

Heseltine grew up in Swansea and he knew Gwynne and Dafydd of old, having served as the Tory MP for Tiverton, 1966-74, when Mr Thrope was busy in Devon and elsewhere with the assistance of Gwynne and Dafydd…


[as was Lord Peter Taylor who succeeded Geoffrey Lane as Lord Chief Justice and was in post, 1992-96. Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate Tasker remained as Deputy Chief Justice after Taylor replaced Lane. EG’s of CRIMES re me – HERE Peter Taylor – born Newcastle – CHECK – lived Guildford – including when I was working at Surrey University in Guildford – Vincent Marks – brother of Dr John Marks, Chairman of the BMA – battling with Ken Clarke while Tony Francis and other members of the Gang received advice from the BMA re how to frame me for offences that Ken and co knew had not been committed – Ken and co also knew how serious the crimes were against kids and Empowered Service Users in north Wales -PETER TAYLOR – DEATH date]

Ken and co – came into their own on Black Wednesday -DATE –  Sarah Hogg – Lamont – Lamont’s aide Cameron – utterly clueless, panicking, no idea what to do

Lamont was the son of a surgeon who knew Lord Platt and Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate Top Doc Sir Douglas Black – See ‘The Logic of Medicine’ – Lamont also knew about Ollie Brooke and the Top Docs and lawyers who protected him -including Hugh Bentall surgeon at Hammersmith Hospital who’s son Richard was a clinical psychologist working at UCNW with Dafydd et al while Gwynne was parked in the Student Health Centre – Kingston-upon-Thames – Richard Bentall was married to the daughter of the Dean of Science at UCNW who had completed a degree with Greig-Smith et al in the Dept of Plant Biology and then trained as an Angel…]


Lord Rhyl aka Nigel Birch was a Swinging member of the Gang himself, as was Sir Anthony. Although Birch went back a long way with Dafydd and Gwynne, in the long tradition of intra-Gang scrapping, he put the knife into Harold Macmillan as the Profumo Affair exploded, insulting whores, tarts and those who cavorted with them, but forgetting to mention that the business was the bread and butter of Birch’s mates Dafydd and Gwynne . See previous posts.

Nigel Birch had served in Eden and Macmillan’s Cabinets as Secretary of State for Air, Dec 1955-Jan 1957. In 1950 Birch married Esmé Glyn, the daughter of Frederick Glyn, 4th Baron Wolverton who was a partner in the family banking firm of Glyn, Mills & Co. Nigel Birch almost certainly knew Hurd from Hurd’s days in Disguise, before Hurd joined the Tory Party.

Nigel Birch knew Mars-Jones as well as Ronnie Waterhouse. Waterhouse was Mars-Jones’s pupil and then his junior colleague for many years.


Greig-Smith was undertaking Gov’t advisory work years after he retired in 1984. For example, he co-authored ‘Pesticide Poisoning of Animals 1988: Investigations of Suspected Incidents in Great Britain’, published on 1 Jan 1990.

In 1989, Tony Francis, with the assistance of Dafydd and others known to Greig-Smith (and indeed Greig-Smith’s Top Doctor son), organised a case conference about me, the Chair of which was one of the Gang of whom I had never heard, Dr Chris Hunter, who received evidence of my Dangerousness from people of whom I had never heard. Hunter concluded that I was Extremely Dangerous, in need of being sent to live in Broadmoor with Jimmy Savile and in Nov 1989 offered to write a Court Report stating this. I was not facing any charges at the time. The case conference was held in Gwynedd; I was at work in St George’s Hospital Medical School, London at the time. I only found out about the event some four years ago when I received copies of the documentation relating to the matter. See post ‘Night Of The (Dr Chris) Hunter’.

St George’s were facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring and were in partnership with the Gang in north Wales. Mr Big at St George’s, my Prof and Head of Dept Prof Geoffrey Chamberlain, lived at Wimbledon and was one of Lord Havers’ constituents and neighbours…

See the source image

In Feb 1990, the Gang brought the first of their High Court cases against me during that year, based entirely on their perjury; there were another four High Court cases in 1990 alone, with the intent of having me imprisoned. See eg. ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’ and ‘The Bitterest Pill’.

Greig-Smith knew some of the perjurers who gave ‘evidence’ against me. ‘The Bitterest Pill’ details the incestuous circle who played key roles in the High Court cases against me. Sir Malcolm Pill grew up in Cardiff and went to the same school as Rhodri the Ale Twat; Pill was a graduate of Trinity College, Cambridge and a member of Gray’s Inn, along with Mars-Jones. St Helena and Mike Mansfield who knew what was happening to me but kept it quiet are members of Gray’s Inn, as was David Waddington, the Home Secretary, 26 October 1989-28 November 1990, who had been Minister of State in the Home Office, 1983-87, under Home Secretaries Leon and then Douglas, whom Waddington succeeded. Hurd was promoted to the post of Home Secretary on 2 Sept 1985 and was in post throughout many Cunning Plans and an attempt to kill me that resulted in the deaths of many others.

On 17 May 1995 Geoffrey Dickens died from liver cancer.

Peter Cook had died on 9 Jan 1995. Viv Stanshall spontaneously combusted on 5 March 1995. Dafydd and Gwynne’s good mate of decades died on WHAT Aug 1995. Sir Charles Evans died on 10 Dec 1995, but from ‘prostate cancer’ rather than that MS of his that stopped him from operating back in 1958…

Towards the end of June 1995, my former boss at St George’s Malcolm Pearce was struck off by the GMC for perpetrating a major research fraud. Geoffrey Chamberlain was 100% on board with the fraud but was not even brought before the GMC, but then Chamberlain was a friend of Royal Doc Sir Hugh Pinker who delivered William and Harry. Chamberlain gave evidence to the GMC against Malcolm. The Chairman of the GMC at the time was Lord Robert Kilpatrick. Kilpatrick had been headhunted by the GMC as their Chairman in 1989 to succeed Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate Lord John Walton. Kilpatrick had since DATE been the Dean of Leicester Medical School, in which role he colluded with the ring in Leicester. Prior to that, Kilpatrick served as the Dean of Sheffield Medical School, in which role he facilitated the crimes of Jimmy Savile and friends.

Malcolm Pearce wasn’t as Posh as many of his colleagues in London. Malcolm was a grammar school boy who had qualified as a Top Doc at Leeds, Jimmy Savile HQ, who in 1988 had become General Manager of Broadmoor; Savile’s mate Alan Franey, who had been a senior NHS manager at Leeds General Infirmary, became CEO of Broadmoor.

Chamberlain enjoyed celeb friends, the most boasted about of which was Cilla From Scottie Road in Liverpool, who found fame in that city when Dafydd was building up his speciality of procuring underaged/vulnerable people as sex workers for celebs in Liverpool and elsewhere.

Cilla is an example of someone who’s career had pretty much gone to sleep until she had a second phase of stardom in mid-life that began in 1986 with the rather lame ‘Surprise, Surprise’ and rocketed to stratospheric levels in the early 1990s, with ‘Blind Date’ in particular. Cilla was constructed as an auntie with a sense of humour in the context of a show that was the target of complaints re racism, crude gender stereotyping and at one point allegations of quite serious backstage misbehaviour. What I noticed most was Blind Date’s contribution to that era’s culture of Idolising The Posh and Moneyed.

Cilla was famously a Tory and a big fan of Thatch. On ‘Blind Date’ Cilla played her usual game of stressing her Liverpudlian qualities, exaggerating her Common accent, making jokes about contestants who put on Cultured Airs – Cilla almost shamed one young man on ‘Blind Date’ who stated that his favourite film was NAME – yet led the most appalling grovelling when someone supposedly Rich or Really Posh made an appearance. I am sure that it was no coincidence that the famous ‘Blind Date’ wedding – Cilla bought an ‘at -was between Alex, an old Etonian and Sue, a woman who counted as posh as well. The name of the bridegroom’s old school was mentioned constantly, viewers were not allowed to forget it.

Cilla’s values reflected those of Doreen, the rude, thick, Thatcherite snob of a medical secretary employed at St George’s for the purposes of the Private Patients, although Doreen’s salary was paid by the NHS. Doreen was fairly obviously a member of a crime family who had a great deal of money to throw around and her expressed rationale for working in that job – she got bored in the house all day – made no sense. Malcolm used to get angry with Doreen because she was so incompetent; the Top Docs openly acknowledged that Doreen was ‘as thick as two short planks’, yet she was valued because ‘the private patients love her’. St George’s were admirably very discreet about the private patients, Cilla was the only one who’s name was bandied about, but that was because Cilla was happy to provide PR for Chamberlain whenever he needed it.

Cilla’s LWT success escalated when I was working for Chamberlain and the Gang kept taking me to the High Court. In 1992, by which time I’d been forced out of medical research, Cilla alone had turned the fortunes of LWT around (it had been struggling) and was the highest paid most successful light entertainment star on British TV. Mandy worked for LWT before he secured that job with the remit of modernising the Windbag. Mandy has also worked for the security services since he was a young man, probably having been recruited by Alan Bullock at Oxford University. See ‘A Study In Tyranny’.

Mandy was famous for his close relationship with John Birt, achieved after much grovelling.

Alex and Sue met on ‘Blind Date’ in 1988; gosh, in 1991 they got married!

See the source image

In 1991 the North Wales Police were undertaking the first investigation into the possibility of a VIP paedophile ring in north Wales and Cheshire. The investigation ended some two years later with the conclusion that there was no evidence of any such ring. Although over 100 complaints were made about the abuse of kids during the investigation and the CPS sent a file to the DPP, Mrs Mills did not mount a prosecution.

Alex and Sue were invited back on the TV in 1995 to meet Cilla because Cilla had been so chuffed to hear that Sue had given birth to their first baby!

In June 1995 Malcolm Pearce was struck off by the GMC. Cilla’s pal Chamberlain was seen as the Decent Man who’s name had been dragged into the gutter by that naughty Malcolm. Shortly before I left St George’s, Doreen walked out of her job after Malcolm yelled at her ‘You are hopeless, utterly incompetent’. She probably rang Cilla…

Malcolm was publicly scapegoated in 1995, but I’m delighted to say that he was given a comfy mattress; Malcolm secured a job as an adviser on negligence cases with a barristers Chambers. If any readers know which Chambers employed Malcolm, please do let me know.

‘Blind Date’ was subsequently presented by Cilla’s close friend Paul O’ Grady. Paul is of course a former social worker from Liverpool. One of Paul’s jobs was as a Lambeth social worker. Paul used to leave clients alone at night when he was on sleep-in duties to visit gay clubs and hang out with his mates, including rent boys. Another prank of Paul’s when he worked for Lambeth was to conceal the death of one of his clients in order to move into their Lambeth council flat. See previous posts for more info on Paul, who presents ‘For The Love Of Dogs’ after past activities that would have resulted in a prison term for an Empowered Service User in Gwynedd.

At one point, I was absolutely assured by someone in Somerset that Brown had rung them and told them that I had tried to commit suicide. Not only was that allegation untrue, but Brown promised me that he had never done such a thing and never would. The mystery remained until a few years ago I was reading yet more of my files that had been finally released. There was a written admission in there by Dr Nita Mitchell-Heggs, the corrupt Occupational Health physician at St George’s when I worked there, that someone had rung the person in Somerset and this had to be concealed because it was ‘a breach of confidence’. It was rather more than that. Not only had I never provided St George’s with the phone number or indeed any details relating to people in Somerset, but this seems to have been the call that I was told about ‘from Brown’. It appears to have been yet another sophisticated fraud on the part of the security services, in which recordings of Brown’s voice had been spliced together…


On 9 July 1995, Bing Spear, the corrupt Home Office Drugs Branch mandarin who had been of such assistance to Dafydd as well as to Dr Ann Dally – the Dafydd of Harley Street who was Ma’am Darling’s dealer (see post ‘Little Things Hitting Each Other’) – died. On 13 July 1995 Sir Peter Morrison was found dead in his house in Belgravia. At the end of July 1995, Brown was forced out of his job at Aston University. Ronnie Waterhouse was by then conducting his retirement-related ‘farewell tour’ of his old Circuit, wining and dining with so many of those who’s ‘failures’ had substantially contributed to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. See ‘Heart Of Darkness’.

Hurd was Foreign Secretary, 26 Oct 1989-5 July 1995, retiring from politics four days before Bing Spear died. Bugger me, four days after that, the corpse of Thatch’s pal Sir Peter was found.

Hurd might be forgiven for wanting to get the hell out of the Cabinet in July 1995, because 1995 was quite a year for deaths of Insiders. After his ‘retirement’ – Dafydd ‘retired’ in the same month – Douglas remained a key supporter of John Major, and ‘kept a range of active political involvements as well as taking on some business appointments, most notably as a Deputy Chairman of NatWest Markets and a Board Director of NatWest Group, posts that Douglas held from October 1995–99. Douglas left the Commons at the 1997 General Election and on 13 June 1997 was created Baron Hurd of Westwell.

If Douglas thought that it was safe to go back into the kitchen once Ronnie Waterhouse was sitting in Ewloe and had begun that whitewash, he was sadly wrong.

The pleas to Ma’am to Show Us You Care and the great wailing and the gnashing of teeth after the business with the Fiat Uno and the tunnel rather eclipsed the death on 4 Sept 1997 of another very guilty man, dear old H.J. Eysenck, a man who spent decades at the Institute of Psychiatry alongside Dafydd’s mates and earlier in his career worked with Cyril Burt and other research cheats at UCL. UCL hosted many who colluded, including some who have no excuses at all re Gwynne and Dafydd, including The Count aka psychiatrist Dr Andrew Skarbek. Skarbek was a facilitator of organised abuse both at UCL and his private practice in Hampstead and Skarbek’s wife – they were man and wife but many other bedfellows were built into that relationship – Marjorie Wallace, founder of the charidee SANE, must be one of the biggest excusers for Gwynne and Dafydd’s criminality that there has ever been who has not been Chairman of the GMC.

Marjorie’s crimes are so numerous that I will simply refer readers to previous posts eg. ‘One Dangerous Fucker’. Of course I wrote to Marjorie in 1987 about Dafydd and Gwynne when she set up SANE, but as with my letter to Esther, I received no reply. I did not realise that the time that Marjorie and Esther had both begun their charidee work because of me er complaining about the Gang. Esther’s ChildLine was established after a colleague of Esther’s suggested that it would be a good idea in 1986.

So instead of Ringing The Electricity Board, Esther and the young men with curly hair Rang Dafydd and Cyril recited an Odd Ode about… Well we’re talking Dafydd and a man who was obsessed with misshapen root vegetables, it is not difficult to imagine what Cyril’s Ode would have pivoted around.

One of Marjorie’s many bedfellows was Lord Snowdon and at some point in 1996, Ma’am Darling’s ex metamorphosed into a Disability Campaigner and began touring the UK with Marjorie who had long since been a Disability Campaigner, Campaigning. As well as Marjorie and others, one of Snowdon’s longstanding mistresses at the time was Ann Hills, the daughter of Top Doc, Freud’s cousin Elliot NAME. NAME, an obstetrician and gynaecologist, was facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring and Ann Hills was a high class call girl. Ann was found dead on the roof of her London penthouse in the early hours of 1 Jan 1997, in a kneeling position, dressed in party gear. Lord S claimed to be heartbroken but evidence later emerged suggesting that he had treated her appallingly and a message from Ann was left on his answering machine that, had anyone bothered to investigate Ann’s death properly, might have left Lord S with some difficult questions to answer.

It was all OK though, the Westminster Coroner Paul Knapman, a St George’s graduate who has for decades been wheeled out to explain away difficult deaths of posh people – Knapman Did The Inquest on Sandra Rivett and many more, as discussed in previous posts – presided over an inquest that would have done the notorious Dewi Pritchard Jones in Caernarfon proud and concluded that Ann had Committed Suicide. Ann’s father told the world that Ann had always been Mad, ever since the age of 18 when she ‘took an overdose’ and that although NAME didn’t approve of Ann’s promiscuity, if she had to behave like a Slapper, he couldn’t have wished for a better ruthless sexual predator than Lord S. Ann’s dad added that he knew that Ann was ‘safe’ with Lord S. Until Ann was found dead on a Posh Roof in London that was.

Now over to you Cyril…


The sad story of Ann Hills and discussion of her crazy old dad, her unscrupulous GP, my rationale as to why any Top Doc or toxicologist would have known that Ann definitely did not kill herself in the way that was claimed at the inquest and the activities of Marjorie and Lord S at the time of Ann’s death, can be read in ‘Error Of Judgement’.

Ann Hills died just days before F and I were cleared at Caernarfon Magistrates Court after the Gang had tried yet again to have us convicted of a serious offence on the basis of their perjury. Tony Francis had prepared a Court Report weeks before the trial, for WHEN we were found guilty. He stated that F should be put on probation and I should be sent to a secure unit. There was a refusal on the part of everyone to apologise when we were cleared and Francis continued to maintain that I was Dangerous and should be transferred to a secure unit. Documents now in my possession show the enormous conspiracy that took place and the orders given to Angel Bridget Lloyd to perjure herself. See previous posts, including ‘Error Of Judgement’.

Ronnie Waterhouse opened his Inquiry between Ann’s body being found and F and I being cleared.

Although I have copies of the memos etc written by Lloyd and her colleagues demonstrating perjury, all documentation relating to proceedings in Caernarfon Magistrates Court is missing. I can remember three magistrates, I think that the Chairman was a lady; they were very pleasant and clearly worried by what was going on. Alwyn Jones defended us, but no, Alwyn didn’t follow up on the perjury, conspiracy etc.

The manager of the Hergest Unit Alun Davies was present in Court in the public gallery and seemed to think that he would see me jailed. When we were cleared, Davies’s expression was that of a man who had just had the contents of a chamber pot emptied over his head.

The policeman called to give evidence was the man who had arrested us months previously in the summer of 1996, after ringing us up at home, giving the impression of being friendly and asking if we could go to Caernarfon Police Station ‘for a chat’, but he wouldn’t tell us what about. When we arrived, the door slammed behind us and we were arrested. He became very aggressive, the custody Sgt was even worse and F was accused of ‘threatening women’; essential medication was taken away from F. We were separated and placed in different cells when I told the Sgt that he was breaking the law. We were then kept in the cells for hours while a Mental Health Professional came to assess us as being fit to be interviewed; the Professional was a colleague of Bridget Lloyd’s, who had made the complaint about us… We were released late in the evening, after the last bus back to Rachub, so we hitch-hiked home.

The Orrible Crime was alleged to have been committed when F phoned one of Lloyd’s colleagues, although he didn’t say what was alleged. Yet the CPS worked extra hard to have me charged as well. I had not made the phone call or even spoken to Lloyd’s colleagues. We were charged with ‘joint enterprise’ on the grounds that I had been in the house when the call was made.

The DPP at the time was this blog’s old friend from Middle Temple, Dame Babs.

The day after the Court case, Jeff Crowther, who had been appointed F’s key worker after we had been arrested in the summer of 1996 – our usual key workers were ordered not to communicate with us and were told that they’d be sacked if they did – came to visit us at home. When F told Jeff that we’d been cleared, Jeff had a good laugh and told us that ‘Fatty Davies can be very nasty’.

I was surprised at the time that Jeff hadn’t found out what the verdict was by the time that he arrived at our house some 24 hours later because the Hergest had made so much out of the prosecution a la ‘We’ve got you two nailed now’. I am now in no doubt that Jeff found out the verdict very soon after it was returned; he probably made that appointment to see F for the day after the trial believing that he would be visiting a distraught F having seen me carted off in the Black Maria the previous day.

One thing that F and I discussed after our trial at Caernarfon was how ours was the very last case of the day and as late afternoon approached, the Magistrates Court gradually emptied of almost all staff. When the verdict of not guilty was returned, F and I left the Court and we noticed the Risley van – which was notorious in north Wales, everyone knew the Risley van – and a gaggle of police officers outside the Court, preparing to leave. F looked gobsmacked and said ‘That was for us wasn’t it? They were waiting to take us to Risley’. I thought that it was a little odd because one only usually saw the Risley van arrive AFTER it had been summoned if it was required, the guilty were usually kept hanging around in the cells until the Risley van turned up. We only discovered subsequently that Tony Francis had written a Court Report before the trial recommending that I be banged up when I was found guilty…

Jeff was at the time working in the Anglesey Drugs Team, the domain of Dafydd, although F was not a patient of the Drugs Team. Jeff was also a personal friend of the predators who had fleeced F and hijacked his baby. Shortly after we were cleared, Jeff’s wife Lilimore collapsed at home and died later that night in Ysbyty Gwynedd under the care of her colleagues. Brain haemorrhage. Jeff’s wife was a lecturer in the Dept of Psychology at Bangor and had finished her PhD there in 1987. Lil had shared an office with Dafydd’s daughter Dwynwen, knew what had happened to me at the hands of the Gang – it was why she was given her lecturing job – and Lil also knew about Dafydd trying to steal money from the NHS to foot the bill for Dwynwen’s training as a clin psy at a private college in Devon. It was in 1987 that Prof Mark Williams, who worked with that lot, discovered the Miracle of Mindfulness.

Some weeks after Lil died, Jeff received murder threats from one of his addict patients and went to live in a safe house. Jeff left north Wales a few months later.

At some point amidst all this, Martin, the man who had lodged with the predators’ in 1992 and witnessed the plot to frame F, was found dead in the road near Bethesda one night. Martin was the father of a little girl to whom Gwynedd Social Services had tried to deny him access in 1993/94; his daughter’s mother, Mandy, was the daughter of the predator who was the mother of F’s baby. Martin applied for custody of his baby after Mandy had attacked and injured the baby. Gwynedd Social Services told Mandy that if she simply turned up to the hearing, she would be awarded custody. Mandy didn’t bother to attend the hearing, so Martin gained custody and provided a stable home for his daughter, with the help of his parents in Tregarth.

Jeff and his wife were friends with Dr Heinersdorff of Bethesda Surgery, who was the GP of the predators, Martin and his family, and of course F and I were registered with Bethesda Surgery. I now have copies of records written by Dr H re ‘F’s family situation’ and they have the air of a Nice Lady GP writing sympathetically about the cast of ‘Shameless’. Dr H’s own role in sexual assault, perjury, conspiracy and murder is not mentioned. She was however good enough to write of me, that my accounts of ‘bad experiences’ with male doctors ‘were not delusional’.

Those were the Male Doctors who’s word re my Insanity and Dangerousness were repeatedly accepted as fact in Court.

See the source image

Mandy went on to have more children with other men and they were finally removed from her care after they had also been injured. I don’t remember any prosecutions against Mandy.

Jeff and Bridget Lloyd had both been involved in lies told to conceal the circumstances of the death of Dorothy Griffiths, a patient in Ysbyty Gwynedd in 1987. Sadie Francis lied at Dorothy’s inquest in Caernarfon, as did Jackie Ehlen. See post ‘Inside Information About A Hergest Unit Death’.

Jackie Ehlen was appointed as my keyworker against my wishes after F and I were arrested in the summer of 1996; Jackie was by then a senior Angel with the forensic team. Tony Francis insisted that Jackie remain as my keyworker even after F and I were cleared in Jan 1997.

I was still seeing Jackie in 1999. When I gained my medical notes I was surprised to see that Jackie had noted the death of my friend’s baby in 1999. My friend’s baby died as a result of gross negligence at Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton. It was the friend who had been targeted by Samuel Brittan, who was then forced out of her career in the media, as was her husband, just as I was forced out of medical research. My friends were bothered by gangsters as well (see ‘The Turn Of The Screw’) so they went abroad for a few years, only returning to Somerset when my friend was pregnant.

At about that time, another man whom my friends knew from the past chose to move to Bridgwater of all places ‘because it’s near the motorway to get to London and no-one recognises him’. Except for my friends of course, particularly as one of them had been forced out of his job in the BBC Drama Commissioning Dept after refusing to take a bribe.

See the source image


Lest anyone try the line that ‘This all happened a very long time ago’, not only are nearly all of those who knew about and/or were involved in the seriously criminal events of which F and I were the main targets in 1995 still working in professional positions, but a number of them were promoted to high or higher office. After I finished my PhD, I bumped into Jackie Ehlen in Tesco who told me that she was undertaking a Masters at Bangor University. At the time, the NW Wales NHS Trust were ordering even hopelessly non-academic staff to undertake postgrad degrees ‘because it makes the Trust look good’. It was a standing joke among some staff at Bangor University that Masters degrees in Mindfulness and from the School of Nursing/Healthcare Sciences were given to anyone who had paid the fees. The NW Wales NHS Trust were always happy to foot the bill, even for Jackie Ehlen, who had been at the centre of a great deal of serious crime including murder since her days as an Angel on the psych wards in Ysbyty Gwynedd in 1987.

Prof Fergus Lowe, who overthrew Dafydd’s influence in the Psychology Dept in 1987 and replaced it with his own toxicity which underpinned Fungus’s own subsequent substantial empire, was found dead in Dec 2014. See eg. ‘Feet In Chains’. Fungus was a witness to so much since he arrived at UCNW as a PhD student in 1970ish that I am only surprised he wasn’t found dead years ago.

Food Dudes founder Fergus Lowe dies

Douglas Hurd retired from the Lords on 9 June 2016, just before I began this blog.

When Bridget Lloyd perjured herself in 1996-97, she worked for the Arfon CMHT. Bridget later transferred to the Anglesey CMHT and was allocated the Angel to see Ron Evans, after Ron developed mental health problems. Ron had previously been employed by Gwynedd County Council as the bent lawyer who advised them as to how to frame me. Ron was the man who advised Bridget’s colleagues in the Arfon CMHT on their perjury in the High Court in 1990… Ron was ever so good, his forged documents were of a much higher quality than those forged by other people, Ron had access to my medical records although he did not work for the NHS, he fabricated evidence, he advised on the purchase on an alarm system in 1994 costing the NHS £20k to enable Dafydd to use that as evidence of how dangerous I was, Ron was bloody marvellous. See previous posts.

Ron lived in Llandegfan, with his wife Dinah, who later became a magistrate. Dinah told people that when the investigations into the abuse of kids in care in north Wales began, Ron told them all in north Wales that none of them must ever speak about what happened to the kids because it was entirely indefensible and they’d all go to prison if ever it came out. Ron ‘went down to London’ to see Big Names.

Ron and Dinah’s daughter became a lawyer, joined the Civil Service and by 2011, was Mandy’s senior aide!

See the source image

Ron and Dinah were neighbours and friends of Tony and Sadie Francis, the Drs Francis having moved to Llandegfan at some point after 2004 or so.

Hurd’s Man In Llandegfan was still busy when the Gang put Bridget up to lying – again – and was the author of this July 1996 publication:

Recommendations from the International Workshop on Earthworm Ecotoxicology (Intercept biology, zoology (insects)) 

The Hague announced that there would be a Public Inquiry into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal in May 1996, although Ronnie Waterhouse knew that he would be Chairing that Inquiry in early 1995 at least, that was why he altered his retirement plans.

Waterhouse – friendly with NAME -Williams  UCNW – – friend of family of Prys Morgan Jones, who was the Dean of Education at Bangor University when I did teacher training at Bangor, 2000-2001.

Prys knew Dr Bob Whitbread. Bob Whitbread’s daughter Ruth Whitbread worked for the BBC (see previous posts), when the BBC Didn’t Know About Jimmy Savile.

Hurd’s Uncle Edred Henry Corner was the son of a famous Top Doc, Edred Moses Corner, as discussed in previous posts.

Edred Corner and Greig-Smith were educated at Cambridge during the same period as the members of the Cambridge spy ring:

See the source image

Goronwy Rees, Principal of what was then University College of Aberystwyth, 1953-57, was a friend of Guy Burgess and in old age stood accused of being a double agent himself. Aber churned out the lawyers and other professionals and public figures who colluded with the Gang. Goronwy had shades of Dafydd about him in so far as much was made of Goronwy being a local Welsh speaking man of relatively humble origins who Fought For The Common Man. Goronwy served as Principal of Aber while Dafydd was completing his medicine degree in Liverpool. Goronwy was forced to resign from Aber in the year that Dafydd qualified, after it was revealed that Goronwy was the author of some published material that was very rude about Burgess.

Goronwy’s brother Geraint was a High Court judge in Wales and knew Ronnie Waterhouse.

Anthony Blunt was of course the man responsible for Brenda’s art collection and it is alleged was one of those of the VIP paedophile ring at Kincora; Lord Mountbatten has also been named as a member of that ring and suspicions have also fallen upon Robert Grosvenor, the 5th Duke of Westminster, the father of the 6th Duke, Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor, friend of Carlo and a man who had close contacts with the Gang and St George’s Hospital. I have received information maintaining that Robert Grosvenor repeatedly molested Peter Morrison when Morrison was young and Morrison was never the same again…

Phil the Greek was Chancellor of the whole of the University of Wales and thus all the constituent colleges from 1949 until Carlo succeeded him in the role in 1976. Thus Phil the Greek reigned over Aberystwyth.

The mother of Top Doc Julian Tudor Spart claimed to be working for the British security services at the same time as the Cambridge spies and was friendly with their circle. Tudor Spart worked for years as a GP in south Wales and definitely colluded with Dafydd, Gwynne and the Gang, although Tudor Spart made much of being a Communist and a Barefoot Doctor.

See the source image

Uncle Harry et al idolised Tudor Spart, they loved him as Tudor Spart banged on about inequalities and how he remembered the grinding poverty in the East End and the south Wales valleys pre-NHS. Which he did, but Tudor Spart died at the age of 91 on 1 July 2018 without ever even attempting to stop a murdering paedophile ring. Before I discovered the Secret World Of Julian Tudor Spart, I wondered how on earth he ended up as a partner in the same GPs practice as Dr Brian Gibbons, AM for Aberavon, 1999-2011, who, when Gibbons was the Welsh Gov’t Health Minister, 2005-07, responded to my evidence of serious organised crime in the NHS in north Wales with a letter saying ‘This correspondence is over’.

This is Gibbon’s contribution to the website of the Socialist Health Association, dated Feb 4, 2014:

Dr Brian Gibbons

I am honoured to have the opportunity to seek your support to continue to serve on the SHA’s Central Council. Over recent years the Association has gone a long way to re-discover its unambiguous commitment to a public service health and social care system. It is crucial that this work continues.

I have worked as a general practitioner in Upper Afan Group Practice from 1980-1999 in the former mining village of Blaengwynfi. When I worked as a GP I was a council member of the Medical Practitioners Union/Doctors in Unite ( MPU/DiU)and  it’s representative on the GMSC/GPC for many years. I was also Local Medical Committee Member and Secretary for West Glamorgan.

In 1999 I was elected to the  National Assembly for Wales for 12 years representing the Aberavon Constituency. I served as Health Minister and Local Government Minister in the Welsh Assembly Government.

I am passionately committed to the National Health Service as a public service. This is the best and most cost effective way to deliver quality, equitable health care for all the population. Our NHS needs to deliver continuing, personalised, readily accessible care to those who need it, tackle health inequalities as well as promoting public health and well-being.

Our health service must be under-pinned by an integrated, free and coherent social care system. We need to place greater value on social care staff so that they can have the training and time to deliver a service that promotes the independence and dignity of those who need it.

Our public services cannot stand still. They must work to improve standards and quality. This must be driven by the visible hand of patient and public accountability rather than the invisible hand of the market.  Commercialisation is a blind alleyway which undermines the very essence of the service.

Greater investment is needed in our health and social care system. This is indispensable if we are to have the people and the means to deliver a service that is fit for the needs of the 21st century.


Prof Greig-Smith worked at Manchester University after he left Cambridge. Manchester University provided yet another umbrella for Gwynne and Dafydd, in particular Manchester University’s School of Medicine. See eg. ‘The Logic Of Medicine’. However, other parts of Manchester University made themselves useful as well, sometime in a very direct way. Isabel Emmett, a social anthropologist from Manchester University married a man from Croesor and Dorothy Emmet, a philosopher who was for years based at Manchester University, knew Bertrand Russell and his mates. See ‘Vested Interests Or Common Pool?’

See the source image

Isabel Emmett wrote a famous 1964 CHECK community study of Llanfrothen/Croesor; it is one of my favourite books, but there were a few drivers in that community that Isabel didn’t mention.

Isabel’s husband was friends with the Welsh Speaking Psychiatric Social Worker who was recruited in the late 1960s in a flurry of PR to reassure people that if one was unlawfully banged up and lobotomised by Gwynne and Dafydd, one’s language rights were respected. The Welsh Speaking Social Worker was an initiative that resulted from pressure applied by er Dafydd’s friends. I suspect that Bertrand had a hand in it as well.

There were so many of that crowd working for the security services that all ideas from all angles were not ideas that ever helped the poor sods on the receiving end of a gang of sex offenders, because so many of those in the security services were involved in organised abuse themselves or had friends and family who were. I know that there were a few people who really did want to put an end to Gwynne and Dafydd et al, but everyone quailed in the face of the British Medical Establishment, so even today, all anyone does is piss about with politicians which has been spectacularly ineffective because they too won’t take on the Top Docs.

The Top Docs are the key problem and someone should have gone for their jugular as long ago as Lord Max Rosenheim’s day, because it was Lord Max and his mates – including Harriet Harman’s dad – who really did spread the rot in medicine.

Lord Max, President of the Royal College of Pathologists and the King Of London Medicine throughout the middle decades of the 20th century:

See the source image

Just read my previous posts about Lord Max; the armour worn by Gwynne and so many other dangerous Docs was applied by Lord Max, a bachelor who was not blessed with children, who ruined the careers of anyone who farted in his general direction yet ensured that toadies and his partners in crime reached the very top and were shrouded in myths of their brilliance.

Lord Robert Platt, Physician and Big Wig of the Manchester Medical Establishment for the middle decades of the 20th century.

See the source image

Lord Platt viewed psychiatrists as the lowest of the low, although Lady Platt was one. Lady Platt knew Gwynne and Dafydd.

Lord Platt was from a liberal family steeped in the arts. Lord Platt had fingers in Posh Pies such as music, opera, the theatre etc. Do read about Lord and Lady Platt and their Eminent Son Sir Peter Platt who emigrated to Oz in earlier posts; Lord Platt and family who concealed Gwynne and Dafydd although they viewed them as beyond the pale, it is terrifying…

When Lord Platt ruled supreme over the NHS in Manchester, Dame Isabel Graham Bryce’s husband Alexander worked as a thoracic surgeon in Manchester and Dame Isabel held NHS governance roles, including at Manchester Children’s Hospital. When Isobel’s husband retired in 1955, they moved to Bloomsbury country in Sussex. The Dame served on the ITA for five years. The Dame and her husband moved again to Berkshire. The Dame held yet more NHS governance roles, including the Chair of the National Nursing Staffing Committee, 1967-76 and the Chair of Oxford Regional Health Board, 1963-72, concealing organised abuse and criminality in Oxfordshire, which formed the basis of the Dame’s close friendship with Richard Crossman. Oxfordshire Regional Health Board also held responsibility for a number of institutions outside of Oxford, including Stoke Mandeville.

The Dame’s father, Prof James Lorrain Smith, was a Belfast-born pathologist, who worked in Manchester and then Edinburgh, where he became Dean of the Faculty of Medicine.

Like Lord Platt, the Dame’s children and other relatives held influential positions…

The Dame died on 19 June 1997; Ronnie was calling former kids in care in north Wales lying criminals and Miranda had become PM the previous month. George Thomas died on 22 Sept 1997, some three weeks after Diana crashed into that tunnel.

At the time, Manchester was much more famous for its music scene; it had begun with the Hacienda in DATE, but once the investigations into a possible VIP paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire began, the Manchester music scene became even bigger than the Welsh music scene, which was led by Gruff Rhys, son of Ioan and other children of the Gang. See previous posts eg. The International Language Of Screaming’. Miranda soon invited Liam and Noel to No 10. See previous posts.

Sir Joseph Cantley, who worked on the Northern Circuit as a barrister and then as a High Court judge:

Sir Joseph resided over Mr Thrope’s Old Bailey trial in 1979 and provided the memorable summing-up. Mr Thrope was defended by George Carman, a barrister who worked on the Northern Circuit and knew Sir Joseph. They both knew Lord Platt’s colleagues as well as Dafydd and Gwynne.

The so-called hitman, Andrew Newton, who couldn’t even carry out a simple murder plot without cocking the whole thing up:

Mr Thrope’s wife Miriam was previously married to Brenda’s cousin, the Earl of Harewood.

Ken Barlow was appointed the Patron of St David’s Hospice when Alun Davies was Chief Exec. Ken went to Rydal School in Colwyn Bay, as did his son Linus Roache. Rydal educated many children from the affluent but not the very poshest families of north Wales; Lord Mervyn Davies, banker, Gordon Brown’s Minister and the former Chair of Governors of Bangor University went to Rydal. An investigation into historical abuse at Rydal revealed a substantial problem with a small number of teachers in the 1980s. In the 1980s, the son of my landlord in Llandegfan was at Rydal School. Rydal educated many boys who became professionals of the Top Doc/lawyer/accountant classes and the sons of big landowners.

Most Governors of Rydal School are old boys.

Ken Barlow’s colleague Len Fairclough hit the headlines in the 1980s after he stood trial for molesting children; his defence barrister was George Carman.

brief overview here – 1983

….PREV – AA etc

In February 1983, Adamson sold behind the scenes stories about co-stars Barbara Knox, Christopher Quinten, Doris Speed, Johnny Briggs, Bill Roache, Anne Kirkbride and Pat Phoenix to the Sun newspaper journalist Dan Slater without permission. He was given a warning by management at Granada that he faced dismissal for breach of contract if it happened again. Adamson was suspended for six weeks.

On 24 April 1983, a Sunday newspaper reported that Adamson had been arrested the previous day for indecently assaulting two eight-year-old girls in a public swimming pool in Haslingden where he had assisted as a part-time instructor in two separate incidents. The police complaint alleged that Adamson’s ‘hands had strayed’ while giving swimming lessons.

Adamson’s final ever appearance as Len Fairclough was made on 11 May, but recorded before his arrest. Adamson asked Granada to write him out of the programme until his court case was over. His trial began on 18 July 1983 and he was represented at his trial by the barrister George Carman QC, who had a prominent career defending celebrities. On 26 July 1983, at Burnley Crown Court, a jury found Adamson not guilty.

Len Fairclough encountered the problems from which he was rescued by George Carman while Beata and Sir Anthony Meyer were at each other’s throats and when the Tony and Sadie Francis arrived in north Wales from Manchester. William Mars-Jones had been appointed President of UCNW the previous year, some NUMBER  months after I arrived as a student there.

DATES OF M_Jcases in Clwyd CC??

In early June 1988, still suffering financial and drink problems, Adamson was allegedly persuaded by freelance Sun reporter Dan Slater to change his story following several bottles of whisky. Adamson allegedly told Slater “I am totally guilty of everything the police said”….”But what I hope you will print – is there was no sexual intent.” He withdrew from the play The Railway Children he was starring in Birmingham. As a result, Lancashire Police interviewed Adamson at Chorley Police Station, but he categorically denied the confession. No further charges were brought against him.

After he was charged, Adamson was refused legal aid. Two weeks before the trial began, he approached Granada to see if they would help with what was a potentially enormous legal bill. As they were preparing to hand over a £10,000 loan cheque, Adamson admitted to Podmore and Granada management that he had signed an unauthorised contract to sell his memoirs to The Sun and The News of the World along with the story of his arrest and trial without permission. The trial left Adamson with legal bills of £120,000. Producer Bill Podmore called this “indefensible” and the cheque was hastily withdrawn. He demanded that Adamson give clear assurances that he would never again break Granada’s house rules on press interviews. Adamson said that he couldn’t guarantee he would. Adamson was sacked by Podmore whilst on holiday in Bali on 26 August 1983.

At the time of his sacking Adamson was earning a reported £25,000 a year. In 1974 he was earning £12,000 a year. Len Fairclough was killed off-screen in a motorway crash on 7 December 1983. To demonise the character, it was revealed that he had been returning home from an affair, cheating on wife Rita (Barbara Knox). Adamson claimed this was motivated by sheer spite on Granada’s part, to turn viewers against Len.

Adamson celebrated the character’s death by delivering an obituary on TV-am dressed as an undertaker and delivered a bitter parting shot towards both Coronation Street and Granada in a poem that he wrote.

On 30 July 1985 Adamson appeared on TV, talking about the trial and the aftermath in a TVS programme called Regrets. Granada refused to run the episode because Adamson criticised Granada over his dismissal. They threatened TVS with legal action for using the Coronation Street theme and photographs from the series.

Adamson’s career post Coronation Street got off to a good start. He starred in a West End production of Dial M for Murder from 1 November 1983 to March 1984 which also featured Simon Ward and Hayley Mills. The play was successful. In June 1984 he was in a play in Croydon and in the summer of 1984 read short stories on BBC Radio 4. He was in a play in Harlow when his wife fell dangerously ill in September 1984 and had to quit to return north. In February and March 1985 Adamson was based in Cambridge when he had a part in Entertaining Mr Sloane and in the spring and early summer of 1985, he was in Darlington as he played Tommy Beamish, the leading role of an actor-manager of a troupe of music hall entertainers on the eve of WW I in Empires by J.B. Priestley.

In February, March and April 1986 Adamson was in A Taste of Honey, a touring play. Anne was killed by the Gang in April 1986. In the late Summer of 1986, as I was unlawfully blown out of my place on a MSc at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and thus enrolled for the MSc at Hammersmith, run by the Gang’s friend Hugh Bentall’s mates – yet another trap for me I am assured – Adamson moved to Toronto, appearing in Run For Your Wife, the Ray Cooney farce at the Bayview Playhouse and later performed in a guest role in the detective drama Adderly. This was successful and Adamson returned to the UK in the Spring of 1988 and played in a revival of The Relapse at the Mermaid Theatre from September to December that year. Adamson was also in a play in Belfast running from February to April 1989. Adamson had to change his address supposedly due to a death threat after an argument that he had in a pub, but perhaps due to the alleged admission that he made in ‘The Sun’. Adamson’s acting roles became increasingly rare after that. Adamson was declared bankrupt in 1991, with £32,000 debts, largely due to the legal fees from the 1983 court case.

Adamson retired from acting after being declared bankrupt. In the final decade of his life he lived on the state pension and benefits in a Housing Association flat in Welton, Lincoln. He revealed in an interview with the ‘Sunday People’ in May 1994 that none of the cast had ever contacted him since his sacking and that he had written twice to Julie Goodyear who he had been very close to, but she never replied. Adamson was also friends with Bryan Mosley and Jean Alexander but lost touch.

Adamson married his wife Jean on 2 December 1953. They had two sons. Jean died in Wrightington Hospital, Bolton, on 26 September 1984 of septicaemia aged 52.

On 11 Sept 1984 Nicholas Eden was moved from the post of Minister under Peter Walker in Energy to Minister under Waterhouse’s colleague Patrick Jenkin in the Dept of the Environment. The NUM strike was underway and it was known that Nicholas was seriously ill with AIDS. Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate David Hunt succeeded Nicholas Eden as the Energy Minister under Walker – Hunt had responsibility for Coal, so was at the centre of the action – and Eden died on WHAT Aug 1985. The month that Tony Francis lied to me yet again and smugly told me that I could even contact the Secretary of State about him if I wanted…

George Thomas was hospitalised with an STD in 1984 and was in a dreadful state, fearing that all would be lost if it became public knowledge. George’s mate Leo Abse was summoned to the hospital (I don’t know which one) late at night to reassure George that Leo would issue a press release stating that George had ‘waterworks’ trouble. The doctors they were Ah wonderful, they colluded with Abse, there were no leaks and the Top Docs continued to milk George Thomas and his sex offences against children as much as possible.

Leo’s brothers Dannie and Wilfred were both Docs. Wilfred was a psychiatrist colleague of Gwynne’s who emigrated to the US in DATE and became Prof of WHERE – Leo, Dannie and Wilf’s sister also emigrated to the US and played her role in expanding the family business…

See ‘O Jones, O Jones’ for info on the Abses and their network; Pere Abse knew George Thomas years before Thomas became an MP, when George was a school teacher, teaching the Abse boys. The Abse family were mostly employed as lawyers or Top Docs. Greville’s father Barnett Janner was a lawyer in south Wales along with the Abses; Barnett later relocated to Leicester, where he became a Labour MP and Greville succeeded him in the seat. Linford Rees’s father was a school teacher in south Wales in the same era as George Thomas.

Dannie Abse was coerced into entering a career in medicine by his family, in particular his older brother Wilfred. Dannie struggled academically and after qualifying really was not interested in Top Doctoring. Dannie Abse practiced medicine throughout his adult life but his real interest was poetry and jazz. Dannie was a big name on both of these scenes from the early 1960s onwards. Eric Hobsbawm loved jazz (see post ‘Captain Swing and His Crew’) – as did Ken Clarke – and Wendy Savage married a jazz musician. Dannie trained as a Top Doc in London, as discussed in previous posts was a great networker and, like Uncle Harry, Wendy Savage, Julian Tudor-Spart et al, was active in the Socialist Medical Association (later known as the Socialist Health Association).

Dannie and Wilf both trained at Westminster Hospital, a popular choice for students from south Wales, after it’s reputation was made by the presence there of Clement Price Thomas, King George VI’s Top Doc, who originally came from south Wales. See eg. ‘Successful Surgery On King George VI!’.


Then there was novelist Kate Roberts, who graduated from UCNW, went to south Wales where she taught while also being active in the newly formed Plaid Cymru, to be joined by Dafydd some 20 years later. Kate married – her husband, Morris T. Williams, also a Plaid activist, was known to be gay but this has only been admitted relatively recently and that has been followed by suggestions that Kate was a lesbian – and they moved to Denbigh in 1935, where they ran the publishing house Gwasg Gee. Kate was widowed in 1946. Kate continued working for Plaid, in particular on behalf of Welsh medium schooling and enjoyed a close penfriendship with Ernest Jones, the Welsh psychiatrist who was substantially responsible for bringing Freud’s theories to the UK. Ernest Jones knew Gwynne.

The “Committee”, 1922. Left to right, seated: Sigmund Freud, Sándor Ferenczi, and Hanns Sachs. Standing; Otto Rank, Karl Abraham, Max Eitingon, and Ernest Jones.
Ernest Jones went on to serve two periods as President of the International Psychoanalytic Association from 1920 to 1924 and 1932 to 1949, through which he exerted considerable influence.

Ernest is also noted for having killed his bride Morfydd after only 12 months of marriage when he performed abdominal surgery on her in her parents’ house in south Wales. Ernest told obvious porkies about the cause of Morfydd’s death, but he was Ernest Jones, Friend Of Freud, so it didn’t matter.

Ernest Jones.jpg

Morfydd had, before her death, been pissing Ernest off with her silly ways, shortcomings as his wife and her Presbytarianism, which Morfydd took a little too seriously for Ernest’s liking. Ernest and Freud fell out over Ernest’s conduct towards Freud’s own daughter Anna…

Ernest died on 11 Feb 1958, shortly after Dafydd had embarked upon his Career In Medicine with Ernest’s mate Gwynne at Denbigh. Kate Roberts lived at Denbigh until her death on 4 April 1985, just when I had the big bust-up with Tony Francis and when Nicholas Eden was bowing out of Gov’t to die from AIDS out of the glare of publicity, although Kate was 94 at the time.

Whenever an investigation into anything relating to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal reared its head, there would be a flurry of interest in Kate’s writing, her novels would be reprinted (usually by Gwasg Gee), TV programmes about her would be broadcast and a reminder that Kate was known in Wales as Brenhines Ein Llen (The Queen Of Our Literature), at least by herself, in the way that Dave Lee Travis became known as The Hairy Cornflake by himself.

Meet The Power And The Glory:

Kate was friendly with Saunders Lewis as well, the man who’s nationalism so rattled the British Establishment that Dafydd was sent Undercover to befriend Saunders and infiltrate Plaid. Saunders had very close links with UCNW; he died on 1 Sept 1985, just days after Nicholas Eden.

Kate is buried in a chapel in Denbigh, probably in the Plot next to Gwynne.

Morfydd Llwyn Owen, killed by Ernest Jones, Pioneering Welsh Top Doc and Psychoanalyst, in 1918:

Morfydd Llwyn Owen.jpg

See eg. ‘Feet in Chains’ for more details re the Brenda of Wales’s literature.

Kate Roberts obviously knew that she would be famous and on TV after her death, because in 1965, the year after Dafydd was promoted to a consultant’s position, Kate purchased ‘Gae’r Gors’, her childhood home on the mountain at Rhosgadfan and Presented it to the Nation. Gae’r Gors is not a stately home or even a building with the capacity to do B&B for visitors. To describe Gae’r Gors as a Humble Cott would be grandiose. Gae’r Gors is really basic, even by the standards of a quarryman’s cottage in Gwynedd. I’d love to live there, but most people wouldn’t. Furthermore, when Kate lived there and in 1965 when she Presented it to the Nation, Gae’r Gors was a sort of crumbling stone cave. It remained that way until 2005, when Alun Ffred and Cadw organised a lick of paint and a new wooden door and it became a Tourist Attraction, to detract attention from another Tourist Attraction a few miles down the road at Bangor University, a Tourist Attraction under fire from Miranda:

Greig-Smith’s own son, also Peter, was a Top Doc in Liverpool and a well-known ornithologist. If one looks on the search facility of the Medical Register to check the status of Peter Greig-Smith, at present, one just receives a message stating that the information is not available, but that doesn’t mean that Greig-Smith is not registered with a licence to practice. My friends at Bangor were ornithologists…

Plant Biology was packed with Gang members and allies. D.G.E. Wood’s wife Chris Wood worked there, the ecologist and lecturer Ralph Oxley’s wife Isobel Hargreaves was Gwynedd social worker, lecturer Chris Gliddon’s wife Angie was an Anglesey County Councillor who aspired to be a Labour MP, Prof Geoff Sagar was a PVC and part of the on-going horror that tolerated Gwynne the Royal Lobotomist sitting in the Student Health Centre, lecturer John Farrar was either having sex with students or yelling and swearing at them, lecturer John Wilson was known to be having sex with local schoolgirls and there were fears as to what would happen If He Gets Caught, lecturer Adrian Bell was a former corrupt forensic scientist who was following orders from the Gang… Virtually every other member of staff was on board with the Gang via friendships, family ties, previous marriages/relationships etc. Even one of the mature students, Gay Kennaway, was married to Ian, a Posh Man from a well-known Tory family – who’s mother’s second husband was an aristocrat – who occupied a senior position in the National Trust, an organisation that was doing business with the Gang…

See previous posts, including ‘Additional Security Measures’.

Greig-Smith wasn’t just Hurd’s man in UCNW, Greig-Smith lived in Llandegfan, not just the same village as me, but one of the more affluent villages on Anglesey that was/is a mecca for the better paid NHS staff as well as Bangor University staff. If you want to find a Top Doctor or a Professor on Anglesey, you just have to conduct your fieldwork from Menai Bridge, through Llandegfan, to Beaumaris and you’ll have plenty of sightings.

THE BEST BIT OF PR THAT LLANDEGFAN EVER HAD – Aled Jones of ‘Walking In The Air’ fame, a worldwide star by 1985 – yes, they knew that it was Christmas alright…

The world has followed as Little Welsh Aled From Llandegfan has grown up and is now an easy listening sort of star, presenting a whole variety of programmes from ‘Cash In The Attic’

See the source image

to ‘Songs Of Praise’. Aled’s own daughter Emilia is a luvvie.

Aled was born in the St. David’s Laundry in Bangor (see eg. ‘The BMA and It’s Ethics’), the only child of Nest Rowlands, a teacher and Derek John Jones, a draughtsman for a shipbuilder. Aled attended Ysgol David Hughes with D.G.E. Wood’s children and the girls who knew about the enormous testicles that lived in Llandegfan.

Aled joined the choir of Bangor Cathedral when he was nine and was lead soloist within two years, although he was never Head Chorister.

At that time, Gwilym Williams was both Bishop of Bangor and Archbishop of Wales. Gwilym, the son of a wealthy landowner in north Wales and who was at Jesus College, Oxford with Harold Wilson (see previous posts), was on excellent terms with Gwynne and Dafydd.

See the source image

Aled’s singing was so appreciated by a member of the congregation, Hefina Orwig Evans, that Hefina wrote a letter to local record company Sain, and Aled was duly signed.

Dafydd Wigley’s wife Elinor Bennett was one of Sain’s stars. Sain was established by Dafydd Iwan, former Leader of Gwynedd County Council who once wrote a Tribute Song to a much more famous Dafydd. Hefina noticed Aled warbling away in what was known to be one of the most dysfunctional Cathedrals in the UK just when the Gang really needed good PR…

Lord Wigley: Tony Francis described him as a ‘splendid man’:

Dafydd Wigley was touting himself about in search of a Plaid seat when Dafydd Alun Jones was standing for Plaid as the candidate for Denbigh in the late 1950s and 60s. Furthermore, in the 1970s and 80s, Dafydd Wigley had two terminally ill children who were in the clutches of the Top Docs. The Top Docs just gave Wigley his orders, particularly when he was given a place on the Warnock Committee, who took their orders from Dame Josephine Barnes, one of Lord Max’s proteges. Dame Josephine and her husband Sir Brian Warren, Grocer Heath’s close friend and personal Top Doc, were facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring. But then so was Noreen Edwards, the Chairman of Gwynedd Health Authority who, along with Wigley, was given a place on the Warnock Committee.

Noreen’s name is all over my documents and the chaos prevailing in Gwynedd HA when she was Chair was such that in the late 1980s, a hit squad of management consultants from the Welsh Office was sent in

See the source image

and Welsh Office Minster David Hunt was sent up to Gwynedd to deliver a bollocking to Noreen. Noreen remained in post…

Daughter of the vicar of Conwy, Noreen undertook her Angel’s training at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, and midwifery training at Queen Charlotte’s in London – Geoffrey Chamberlain and Robert Winston worked at Queen Charlotte’s when they were Nice Young Doctors, as did Royal Doc Hugh Pinker

– and at the St David’s Laundry in Bangor. Noreen was matron at the Nant-y-Glyn Maternity Hospital, Colwyn Bay, then Denbighshire Hospital and finally Abergele Hospital. Noreen was appointed Chair of the RCN’s Welsh Board and went on to become Chair of RCN Council 1969-71, and Deputy Chair until 1973. In that year Noreen married Geoffrey Edwards, the town clerk of Colwyn Bay.

An Angel member of Gwynedd Health Authority, Noreen was its Deputy Chair in 1979 and Chair in 1982. In 1987, Noreen Chaired the Welsh Office Committee that reviewed community nursing. In 1988, as the Welsh Office prepared to send in the hit squad to Gwynedd HA, Noreen bagged a CBE.

See previous posts for further details re Noreen the People Trafficker who was also a Lt Col in the TA.

There really wasn’t any excuse for Noreen’s presence in polite society was there Douglas? Except of course to ensure that the kids from the Ty’r Felin children’s home in Bangor continued to be trafficked to Dolphin Square.

Dafydd Wigley received a letter about Ty’r Felin, but as Bangor fell in Lord Wyn’s constituency not Dafydd’s, Wigley passed the letter on to Lord Wyn ‘for him to deal with’.

Aled became famous for his version of “Walking in the Air”, the song from Channel 4’s ‘The Snowman’ based on the book by Raymond Briggs. The record reached No. 5 in the UK charts in 1985.

‘I was appalled… You can have MY ticket if necessary!’

Sam SHALL go to the Fringe!

Michael Grade has had just about every senior job that it is possible to have in the media –

he has passed through LWT, Embassy Television in the US, the BBC and Channel 4 – but stunned the media world when on 28 November 2006, Grade and the BBC confirmed that he was to resign as Chairman of the BBC to join ITV plc on 8 January 2007 as Executive Chairman, replacing both Sir Peter Burt as Chairman, and Charles Allen as Chief Executive. In 2005 I had quipped to Merfyn in an e mail that one of my friends experienced an interesting encounter with Michael Grade in 1985 re the Edinburgh Fringe, but I didn’t supply details. That e mail was among those hacked by Miranda’s agents some months later.

On 2 March 2006, Sarah Flooks, the daughter of a neighbour of Brown’s mum, disappeared on her way to work (Sarah was Head of a primary school in London); her body was found in undergrowth in Jan 2007. Sarah grew up in Stogursey near Bridgwater and her mother taught Brown’s brother. Mrs Flooks was a nasty old bag – although everyone maintained that Sarah was much nicer – and knew about organised abuse in the Bridgwater area. Sarah’s brother Tim was a good friend of Mr Bridgy Celeb in the late 1980s/early 90s.

See the source image

Brown’s mum was found dead in her cottage in Stogursey some months after Sarah disappeared.

See the source image

Michael Grade has also been: Head of the First Leisure Corporation (he was appointed in 1997, the year that the Waterhouse Inquiry opened); Chairman of Pinewood and Shepperton Film Studios Company (appointed in 1999); a Board member of the Millennium Dome project; Chairman of Octopus Publishing, the Camelot Group, and Hemscott; a Director of Charlton Athletic F.C. and Non-Executive Chairman of Ocado.

Grade was appointed a CBE in 1998. Grade is married to Francesca Leahy; he was previously married to Penelope Jane Levinson (1967–81), who is now married to Torygraph stalwart Max Hastings (see previous posts for details of Hitler Hastings and his many links to the Gang) and film producer Sarah Lawson (1982–91). Sarah Lawson was a Governor at St. Patrick’s Hospital, Dublin, the institution where member of Gwynne and Dafydd’s network Top Doc Anthony Clare undertook some of his training and where he took refuge as Medical Director after he suddenly fled London as well as all media work in the early 1990s. I am fairly sure that Sarah Lawson was at Heathfield School in Ascot with a relative of mine, who as a teenager was quite close to my grandfather and spent much time with him when she visited Somerset.

See the source image

Anthony Clare died on 28 Oct 2007, in Paris, suddenly and unexpectedly ‘from a heart attack’. Sarah Lawson died on 8 November 2008 ‘after a long battle with cancer’.

Tony Francis’s old psychiatrist buddy from Manchester who suddenly transformed into a cancer researcher, funded by the CRC just as I began working for the CRC in 1988 and who was part of the huge research fraud known to Sir Paul Nurse and his colleagues at the time, died on 7 Oct 2006. Maguire knew of the same crimes committed by the same people as did Anthony Clare.

Sir Henry Yellowlees who, along with Mr Big Sir George Godber, facilitated so much of the wrongdoing at Whitehall level, died on 22 March 2006.

Michael Grade ‘revealed his membership of the Tory Party for the first time in May 2010’, although some of us already had our suspicions about that.

‘I know nuzzing about a dossier with details of a VIP paedophile ring.’

See the source image ‘And neither does my brother or any of his friends…’

On 25 January 2011, Michael became Baron Grade of Yarmouth.

In June 1985, Aled Jones was the subject of an Emmy Award-winning BBC Omnibus documentary, The Treble.

Aled, with the National Philharmonic Orchestra, was behind the Santa Claus The Movie, original motion picture soundtrack, Every Christmas Eve of 1985. Also in 1985, Aled was asked by Mike Oldfield to sing on Oldfield’s single “Pictures in the Dark”, on which Aled performed with Anita Hegerland and Barry Palmer.

In 1986, Aled sang the theme song for the Siriol Animation film A Winter Story.

Aled’s recording career was temporarily halted when his voice broke at 16. By then Aled had recorded 16 albums, sold more than six million copies and sung for Pope John Paul II, Brenda, Carlo and Di, and presented numerous children’s TV programmes. Aled sang at the wedding of St Bob Geldof and Paula Yates in 1986.

See the source image

Aled was the first artist to have two classical albums listed simultaneously in the popular music charts, and worked with Leonard Bernstein (Chichester Psalms). In 1986, Aled sang the oratorio Athalia with Emma Kirkby.

Aled’s first biography, Walking on Air, was published in 1986. I haven’t read that book so I do not know if the enormous testicles of Aled’s neighbour in 1983 – who’s wife might have delivered Aled at the St David’s Laundry back in 1970 and knew that patients in the Laundry were being sexually assaulted by Top Docs – are mentioned.

The entertaining visitors from Norfolk/Suffolk who stayed with us in Llys Tegfan in 1983 – who came to take the piss out of Trishes, the MI5 plant -Duncan, Charles, Jo Marsh (who’s grandfather was someone Posh in Norfolk, either a Sir or a Lord). Heard about the enormous testicles and much else, went to the Pen-yWHAT?? with them, we got thrown out for singing Peters and Lee ‘Welcome Home’ – so we went on to the Gazelle Hotel. Llys Tegfan was bugged by MI5 at the time, all of our conversation re the excesses of UCNW, Llandegfan etc with the Norfolk crowd was recorded. They’ll all have been approached subsequently even if they didn’t realised it. Big ring in Norfolk/ Suffolk – Rab Butler in Suffolk. David Ennals, Jim Prior etc in Norfolk –

The Gazelle Hotel near Llandegfan was a favourite hang-out of Top Docs and the facilitators of the ring.

The Gazelle was owned and run by Barbara and Ken Moulton who had relocated from Cheshire. Barbara, a former porn queen, had an ex-husband who was a Detective with Greater Manchester Police and he was on good terms with Barbara and Ken, often staying over at the Gazelle. See previous posts.

Sophie Cowgill from Norfolk stayed at Llys Tegfan regularly – Sophie’s dad was Col Cowgill – Sophie was at UEA, then became involved in overseas development work – Sophie was on Channel 4’s ‘Right To Reply’ just after Brown was on there in 1987 – some 10 years ago Sophie was a big name in a charidee working with asylum seekers

In 1983 – the retired vicar of St Tegfan’s – tried to get me to join in the witch-hunt against the family in Llandegfan with evidence of the ring in Birmingham who had been targeted by Dafydd – got very nasty when I challenged him. See eg. ‘Amber Rudd, The Miners’ Strike and A Memory Jogged’.

Keith Best was the Tory MP for Anglesey, 1979-87:

Best relocated to north Wales from Brighton, where Best had served as a Councillor; the Gang trafficked children from north Wales to brothels in London and Brighton owned by John Allen.

Best, a barrister and TA officer, went to Keble College, Oxford, as did Peter Morrison.


Best stood down as an MP after he was convicted a jailed for fraud re his BT share applications. It hasn’t held Keith back. He has since been praised for his work with the oppressed. Best has led the organisations Prisoners Abroad (1989–1993), the Immigration Advisory Service (1993–2009), Freedom from Torture (2010–2014) and SurvivorsUK (2015-2018).

Two other regular visitors to our house Llys Tegfan were Dave Reid and Dave’s girlfriend (whom he later married) Wendy, who worked as a secretary at Ysbyty Gwynedd during the 1980s. In 1984, Dave began a collaborative PhD between UCNW and Ysbyty Gwynedd and was treated very badly by his Top Doc ‘supervisor’ at YG; the Top Doc didn’t know his arse from his elbow and wasn’t capable of supervising a PhDs.

Nancy’s café in Norfolk – Anne and the birders from Bangor/Anglesey used to frequent that café, famous for birders

Terry Maxwell and the old trollops See eg. ‘Maxwell’s Silver Hammer’.

After the Gang declared war on me big style in 1986-87, I was forced out of Llys Tegfan – although my stuff was still there – by some unpleasant postgrads from Marine Science, one of whom had moved into Llys Tegfan when I began my MSc at Hammersmith in Sept 1986. One of that group is now Professor of Oceanography at Bangor University, Tom Rippeth. Tom’s greatest ambition is to be a Lib Dem MP and he has stood as the Lib Dem candidate several times now, in constituencies in north east Wales, near Wrexham and Denbigh.

After stopping me from even entering Llys Tegfan, Tom Rippeth moved out himself and in later years declared it the worst house that he had ever lived in, drafty, cold and damp. We had a great time there Tom, surely one of the many bungalows in Llandegfan would have been more to your taste than a crumbling old rectory? But then I wasn’t in a bungalow and in need of being squeezed out was I.

Independent Governor of Birkbeck

Lady Judy Hurd, wife of the former Conservative Foreign Secretary Lord Douglas Hurd, and an Independent Governor of Birkbeck since October 2005, died on 22 November 2008. She was a former Birkbeck student who obtained a BA History in 1998 and also a former member of staff at the College, having worked as a secretary in the Department of History of Art in the 1960s.

Lady Hurd maintained an interest in the College through contact with the Development and Alumni team, and as a member of the Buildings Committee. Lord Marshall, who worked closely with her, said “Judy made a good contribution to Governors’ meetings. She was always mindful of issues of importance to students and her presence will be sorely missed.”

Eric Hobsbawm worked for the British security services, having been recruited when he was at Cambridge in the 1930s. Hobsbawm worked as an academic at Birkbeck for decades and was President of Birkbeck from 2002 until his death.

Hobsbawm kept a second home at Croesor for many years until 1978, the year that Mr Thrope was charged with conspiracy to murder

Image result for jeremy thorpe images

and was a close friend of Sir Clough, Bertrand Russell et al. Hobsbawm knew what Gwynne and Dafydd were up to. Eric Hobsbawm’s daughter Julia was the friend/business partner of Sarah Macaulay, who began a relationship with Gordon Brown when he was Miranda’s Chancellor. They married on 3 Aug 2000, six months after the publication of the Waterhouse Report.

Titter ye not, Gordon knew a great deal about Dafydd and Gwynne and not just via famille Hobsbawm. Sarah Brown was at Bristol University on the psychology degree with Sarah Jenkins, daughter of Sheila Jenkins of the Arfon CMHT. During 1984-85, Sarah Jenkins lived in Llandegfan, in accommodation rented from D.G.E. Wood, shared with Christine Lippai, who knew me,

Christine having been at UCNW with me and a good friend of one of the people who shared our house. Christine had worked at the Gazelle as a waitress. Christine knew of at least two other UCNW students who had been targeted by the Gang and she also knew about James Warram in Dorset who ran a dolphin centre that Warram used as a cover for organised abuse of girls as young as 12. One of Warram’s child victims was a postgrad student at Bangor in 2000 and was unable to access support from Linda Evans, the University Counsellor after she told Linda about Warram. But then Linda was a close friend of Sadie Francis and refused to support anyone who had complained about the Gang. Gordon was also a good mate of Jack McConnell…

Douglas Hurd’s son Thomas is a diplomat. In May 2013, Thomas’s wife Catherine (known as Sian) died after falling 40 ft from the roof of her block in New York one week before they were due to return to Britain. Someone worked very hard indeed to construct Catherine’s death as suicide, the rationale being that Catherine, feeling very tired after all the packing that she had been doing to prepare for the family’s move back to the UK the following month, had gone to bed for a nap. To help her chill out Catherine had taken a small dose of a minor tranquilliser. In her Drugged Haze, Catherine had then climbed up a ladder, into the roof space of their tower block and hurled herself off of the roof, a la the most vivid of anecdotes that did the rounds in the 1970s re the effects of LSD. ‘They think that they can fly and they jump out of the windows on the 10th floor.’

Before Catherine took the sleeping pill:

Douglas: You may not have noticed but your nearest and dearest are probably being murdered and it is something to do with the Gang. Next time that Edward du Cann sends a ratpack of assorted sex offenders and killers in pursuit of the granddaughter of one of his political opponents, perhaps you could not assist them in pursuing her and her friends and destroying their lives when she refuses to join the brothel run by the Royal Lobotomist. Do us a favour and fuck off out of public life Douglas along with the rest of your family, because you facilitating Gwynne and Dafydd’s criminality has put everyone in danger.

See the source image

Now that I’ve exposed the murdering Top Docs, cough up the compensation Douglas and fess up that you should never, ever have done any of this.

Douglas’s son Nicholas Richard Hurd (born 13 May 1962) served as Minister for London from 2018 and Minister of State for N Ireland since 2019. Nick has been the Tory MP for Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner since 2005. He served as Minister for Civil Society at the Department for Culture, Media and Sport in Call Me Dave’s Gov’t, 15 May 2010-14 July 2014. On 28 November 2015, Nick was appointed junior Minister at the Dept for International Development.

In Theresa’s Gov’t, Hurd served as Minister of State for Industry and Climate Change from 16 July 2016 to 12 June 2017 at the newly created Dept for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, after which he was appointed as Minister of State for Policing and the Fire Service.

After attending Sunningdale School, Eton, and Exeter College, Oxford (where he was a member of the Bullingdon Club), Nick Hurd ran his own business and represented a British bank in Brazil. In 2002, he set up the Small Business Network to advise the Tory Party on business policy. More recently, Hurd worked as Chief of Staff to Tim Yeo MP – famous for his five mistresses at once during the heady years of John Major’s ‘Back To Basics’ campaign – who at the time was Shadow Secretary of State for Environment and Transport…

Douglas Hurd’s father Anthony, Lord Hurd, was also a Tory politician.

Anthony Richard Hurd, Baron Hurd (2 May 1901-12 February 1966) was in the Commons throughout the Profumo Affair and knew of the criminality of Dafydd and Gwynne. Hurd was given a peerage in Aug 1964 and his seat was succeeded by John Astor, the youngest of three sons born to John Jacob Astor V, 1st Baron Astor of Hever (1886–1971) and Lady Violet Mary Elliot-Murray-Kynynmound (1889–1965); John Astor was the uncle of Lord Bill Astor.

John Astor had two elder brothers, Gavin Astor, who inherited his father’s barony, and Hugh Astor. His mother had two children, Mary Petty-Fitzmaurice, and George Petty-Fitzmaurice, from her first marriage to Lord Charles Petty-Fitzmaurice who was killed in action at Ypres. His elder half-brother George later became the 8th Marquess of Lansdowne 

John Astor’s paternal grandparents were William Waldorf Astor, 1st Viscount Astor, and his wife, Mary Dahlgren Paul. His maternal grandparents were Gilbert Elliot-Murray-Kynynmound, 4th Earl of Minto and his wife Lady Mary Caroline Grey.

During WW II John Astor served in the RAFVR. He was a Berkshire County Councillor from 1953 and an Alderman from 1960. Astor served as the Tory MP for Newbury, 1964-Feb 1974. In 1970, John Astor was appointed as PPS to the Minister of Overseas Development NAME

In 1950, John Astor married Diana Kathleen Drummond (1926–1982). They had three children:

Elizabeth Kathleen Astor (born 1951); John Richard Astor (1953–2016), who married Katherine Mary Darell in 1977; George David Astor (born 1958), who married Marianne Piroska Julia Leche in 1983.

In 1982, John Astor married Penelope Eve Bradford (d. 31 Dec 2006). They had no children. Astor died on 27 December 1987; I resigned from my job at the CRC Labs at Nottingham University in Dec 1987, after it became obvious that there was no genuine research underway there. Harriet, daughter of Sir David Fell, knew that as well. Meanwhile, the rich n famous converged on Bridgy.

Anthony Hurd received on of a cluster of peerages handed out to people in 1964 who were Inside Witnesses re the Profumo Affair. Another lucky winner was Denis Vosper, a graduate of Pembroke College, Cambridge, the Tory MP for Runcorn in Cheshire, 1950-64. Macmillan appointed Vosper as his Minister for Health in Jan 1957 when Supermac became PM. Yet Vosper stepped down after only nine months ‘on medical advice’, which was exactly the way that Anthony Eden had been deposed as PM in Jan 1957. Vosper had covered for Gwynne and he resigned when the newly qualified Dafydd joined Gwynne at Denbigh. Vosper’s resignation couldn’t have been because his services weren’t appreciated by Macmillan, because Vosper lay low until 1961, when he was appointed as a Minister in the Home Office and was good enough to keep quiet about the Profumo Affair. Like Hurd, Vosper didn’t last long as a peer; he died on 20 Jan 1968.

Dafydd was promoted to the post of consultant psych in 1964, when Vosper went to the Lords.

Vosper was succeeded as the Tory MP for Runcorn by Mark Carlisle, an appalling man who was one of the best mates that Dafydd and Gwynne had re concealing the slaughter of victims of the Gang in Risley and ensuring that the miscarriages of justice, beatings, rapes and deaths continued. Vosper was succeeded as Minister of Health by Derek Walker-Smith, who gave long and loyal service to the Gang, as have some of his offspring. See previous posts…

REMEMBER – P BATES N BROWN N ASTON – JAN 1983 – Margaret newton n tim miles


Anthony Hurd’s father Percy, Douglas Hurd’s grandfather was the Tory MP for Frome in Somerset, 1918-23 and Devizes in Wiltshire, 1923-45. Wiltshire was the family seat of Peter Morrison’s family; the Morrison’s virtually ran Devizes and to a large extent, Wiltshire. Peter Morrison’s brother Charles served as the Tory MP for Devizes, 1964-92.

Percy’s son Robert Hurd, Douglas’s uncle, was an architect. If Douglas’s Uncle Robert didn’t actually know Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, then his close friends definitely did.

Robert Hurd was a bachelor who was not blessed with children. Robert’s wiki entry remembers to say that he was gay and had ‘one partner’. Robert Hurd died on 17 Sept 1963 in Switzerland during the aftermath of the Profumo Affair.

Stephen Ward, the Society Osteopath and Portrait Artist who supplied the call-girls for the Cliveden parties, ‘committed suicide’ on 3 Aug 1963, on the last day of his trial, as the verdict was awaited. The Top Docs gave Ward a great deal of assistance with his suicide as discussed in previous posts.

Stephen Ward and Christine Keeler were the scapegoats for the Profumo Affair and Ward was dropped by Bill Astor’s circle who had previously been very happy to welcome Ward into their circle. Churchill’s son-in-law Duncan Sandys was a very good mate of Ward’s. Sandys was a friend and business partner of Edward du Cann.

On 21 June 1963, Harold Macmillan ordered Lord Denning to investigate the Profumo Affair. Lord Denning’s Report was published on 26 September 1963 and concluded that there had been no security leaks in the Profumo Affair and that the security services and Gov’t Ministers had acted appropriately.

See the source image

See the source image


Profumo had been guilty of an “indiscretion”, but no one could doubt his loyalty. Denning also found no evidence to link members of the Gov’t with associated scandals and the rumours re Phil the Greek’s role in events at Cliveden were politely ignored. Denning laid most of the blame for the scandal on Stephen Ward, an “utterly immoral” man whose diplomatic activities – the security services themselves used Ward to WHAT – were “misconceived and misdirected”. Even at the time, Denning’s Report was widely perceived to have been a rather obvious and inadequate whitewash and criticism has intensified as the years have passed.

Duncan Sandys’ wife Diana (nee Churchill) was found dead from an overdose of barbiturates on 20 Oct 1963. A coroner later ruled that Diana’s death was a suicide. Diana suffered badly from what used to be called nerves throughout her life; it was a topic of conversation that Churchill’s children were all rather troubled.

Lord Denning was Master of the Rolls, 19 April 1962-29 September 1982. Lord Denning was appointed in time to handle the Profumo Affair as the rumours grew and it was clear that soon names would become public. Denning stepped down as Master of the Rolls just as I began my second year at UCNW. I and my former neighbour in hall during the first year, Ros, had arranged a house share for the second year and the landlord then blew us out weeks before we were due to move in. It was why I ended up lodging with Frank, the former kid in care who was targeted by the Gang – and I have now been told was therefore working for them as well – and died not long ago of a neurological condition. Frank advertised for a lodger via the UCNW Student Accommodation Office, who boasted of ensuring that everywhere on their list had been checked and was suitable for students and I arranged the accommodation from Somerset in the summer, having found myself without anywhere to live for the forthcoming term. I was told that there would be other students sharing Frank’s house as well; there was just me in there. I moved out of Frank’s house in Dec 1982 when it became clear that it was ‘unsuitable’ and moved into Llys Tegfan in Llandegfan.

The Lord President of the Council and therefore the visitor for UNCW, 7 April 1982-11 June 1983, was John Biffen, who went to school with my father and who’s family farmed some two miles away from my family’s home. Biffen knew the Bridgy crowd and previous posts have discussed him being the architect of much of the action re the Gang in Somerset. Biffen was a Director of the private London Clinic, who’s Top Doctors provided the Expert Evidence in 2000 declaring Thatch’s mate Pinochet unfit to be extradited to stand trial, although Spain obtained an international arrest warrant for him in 1998.

In 1981, Biffen, as Secretary of State for Trade, allowed the Digger to buy The Times and The Sunday Times without reference to the Monopolies Commission. According to Woodrow Wyatt, who helped persuade Thatch to ensure this, the Commission “almost certainly would have blocked it.” Woodrow Wyatt was a close friend of Bertrand Russell and his crowd – Wyatt used to stay at Croesor – as well as a friend of Thatch, the Digger and the Queen Mum. Woodrow served as the Labour MP for Birmingham Aston, 1945-55 and Bosworth in Leicestershire, 1959-70, but he had mates across the political spectrum. Rich and powerful? You were OK with Woodrow. See previous posts…

Willie Whitelaw succeeded Biffen as Lord President and served, June 1982-Jan 1988 and was in place when the Gang moved in to do their worst. Willie had been a big friend of the Gang from Anthony Eden’s time as PM.

Ros, who was supposed to be sharing ‘Frondirion’, the house on Glanrafon Hill, with me was particularly upset because the man who shafted us was a vicar and Ros took her Anglicanism seriously: ‘Fancy a clergyman behaving like that’. That vicar will have known the Gang but I had no idea about that back then. Ros was the student who was later referred to Gwynne, attempted suicide hours afterward and ended up in the care of Tony Francis who lied to her mum re This Will Never Happen Again. Francis then abruptly discharged her from ‘care’ in the Spring of 1985, exactly when he did the same to me. It was about the time that Nicholas Eden resigned from the Gov’t when he was dying of AIDS. Ros was dogged by mental health problems for the rest of her life. She completed a Masters at Manchester University but never held a job down. Ros remained living in Manchester, although her family spent a lot of time caring for her when she was at her worst, under the ‘care’ of Francis’s old pals, but I don’t think that she realised that. From the little that I saw/heard about, their care of Ros was astonishingly negligent. She made serious suicide attempts and the standard of care became no better. Her mum explicitly told Ros’s psychiatrist after Ros nearly died from an overdose of particularly toxic anti-depressants that she feared that Ros would take another overdose and die if she remained on the same drug. Ros was given repeat prescriptions of the same drug with no other support. Ros killed herself some eight years ago, not long before Tony Francis was found dead.

When Ros killed herself, her constituency MP was former Gwynedd social worker Ann Coffey. Coffey completed a Masters in Psychiatric Social Work at Manchester University, a course run by Tony Francis’s mates.

Lest anyone responds to this info about Ros in the way in which Liz Stables responded to me when I dared remind her that Gwynne had caused Ros to attempt suicide ie. ‘She was ill, that’s why that happened’, Ros was ill, but nothing could excuse some of what happened to her at the hands of Top Docs. Neither did Ros challenge them; she trusted them and was indeed ‘compliant’. On one occasion, immediately before Ros was due to fly to Oz to stay with her sister, the Top Doc from Manchester advised Ros that she would need ‘medication to keep her calm’ for the trip and handed over a prescription with instructions to take it hours before the flight. It was a huge dose of Haloperidol which caused Ros to collapse when she was changing planes in the Far East. No sensible Doc would ever have advised that; Ros didn’t even have problems with flying, the ‘advice’ was inexplicable.

Tony Francis knew that Ros’s older sister Anita had graduated from UCNW in 1980 and as a student had volunteered for ‘Community Action’, a UCNW society. CA (as it was known) sent students to help at Ty’r Felin and was under the control of the Gang; a lot of CA volunteers became social workers.

Ros never mentioned anything about Anita knowing about child abuse, but Francis will have been on the alert. Ros’s other sister was a primary teacher in Stratford in the East End and she did talk to Ros about some of the kids being abused, but Ros didn’t ever tell me that there were links with north Wales in Stratford.

Ros was no doubt rendered even more of a target by the Gang because her family lived in Shrewsbury, the location of the Shropshire ring that was in partnership with the Gang. Lord David Harlech died in Shrewsbury Hospital on 26 Jan 1985 after a road accident. Ros’s mum was a nurse at Shrewsbury Hospital. John Biffen was the Tory MP for Oswestry, 1961-97; he succeeded Lord Harlech in the seat. Biffen went to the Lords in 1997 and died in Aug 2007, 10 months after my father died.

Lord Denning was a member of Lincoln’s Inn; Richard Crossman’s father, High Court Judge Sir Charles Stafford Crossman, was alive and a member of Lincoln’s Inn when Lord Denning became a member.

Lord Denning starred on ‘Jim’ll Fix It’ in DATE. Denning did know about Savile’s crimes at the time.

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

Dafydd once told me ‘Ewe know I have a little wry smile at ewe’r black humour’; when he was saying this to me, Dafydd and his colleagues were compiling Evidence as to my Insanity and Dangerousness. A few weeks later, F and I read the obituary of a Man In The Public Eye of whom it was said would be remembered for his ‘wry smile’, so we sent a picture of that man’s wry smile to Dafydd. I had a little wry smile myself when, years later, after finally receiving my medical records, there, lovingly preserved as Evidence, was the photo of the wry smile that F and I had sent to Dafydd.

From Collinsdictionary.com:

If someone has a wry expression, it shows that they find a bad situation or a change in a situation slightly amusing.

On 25 Oct 2013 an article appeared in ‘The Cyprus Mail’ re an elderly British gent who had been ‘living quietly in Cyprus’ for 12 years, managing his vineyard:

D.G.E. Wood has for some years been popping over to Cyprus to ‘hold clinics’.

Edward du Cann died on 31 Aug 2017 at the age of 93. He died in comfort in Cyprus, rather than being found hanging having ‘committed suicide’ or at the foot of a tall building after throwing himself from a height because he took one Valium.

Dafydd and Lucille are still with us, at nearly 90. Dafydd remains on the Medical Register with a licence to practice.

Mr Fawlty, I No Want To Work Here Any More

My post ‘More Antonin Artaud’ discussed how the unions NUPE and NALGO were actively on board with the abuse of kids in care in north Wales. Not only did NUPE and NALGO offer full protection to members who had admitted abusing kids, but some of the worst abusers were NUPE and NALGO reps/shop stewards. Those at the very top of NUPE and NALGO knew exactly what was happening and used it for their personal benefit. Accounts of paedophile/trafficking rings in other parts of the UK linked with the Gang in north Wales confirms that exactly the same situation prevailed eg. in Islington.

‘More Antonin Artaud’ discussed the biography of Alan Fisher, General Secretary of NUPE, 1968-82, who died on 20 March 1988 in Gwynedd. By the time that Alan Fisher had died, the rich n famous had begun making Bridgwater and the Cottage Inn near Fiddington their venue for socialising. See eg. ‘Upper Class Twit Of The Year – Shooting Themselves’ and ‘A Holy Fool Among A Feast of Fools’.

Previous posts have discussed Jeremy Corby’s earlier life as a NUPE rep in north London, while the ring in Islington resulted in kids being murdered and at least one social worker disappearing, and Gang loyalist Tory David Hunt’s denunciation of Labour’s Alun Michael, another Gang loyalist, as someone who took orders from NUPE (see post ‘The Paedophiles Friends Of Cardiff North’).

There seems to have been only one member of NUPE whom the union refused to support and that was Gwynedd whistleblower Alison Taylor. Alison was a fully paid up member of NUPE throughout her time working as Gwynedd social worker and was still of that status when she was suspended and then sacked by Gwynedd County Council. NUPE refused to take up her case.

In ‘More Antonin Artaud’ I provided a pic of Alan Fisher and his colleague Roger Poole conferring over Important Things; Poole died on 3 July 2015 and a Tribute to Roger Poole appeared on the UNISON website, 16 July 2015:

‘Roger Poole obituary – A trade unionist with a reputation as a hugely constructive negotiator’. The Guardian has published an obituary of Roger Poole, former UNISON Assistant General Secretary who died on 3 July.

Described by Dave Prentis as “always a dedicated and feisty trade unionist”,

See previous posts for info on Dave…

Roger worked in NUPE from 1971 and then in UNISON until his early retirement. 

See the source image

Many people will remember his fine negotiating skills, not least the 1989 National Ambulance dispute. He continued to do arbitration work in industrial relations disputes as well as being the Chair of the Northern Ireland Parades Commission.

The UNISON website provided a link to Roger Poole’s obituary for ‘The Guardian’, which was published on 15 July 2015 and written by Martin Adeney: 

Roger Poole in Belfast in 2005.
Roger Poole in Belfast in 2005. 


Roger Poole, who has died aged 68 of colon cancer,

The Ah the doctors they were wonderful did their best for Roger after Operation Pallial had resulted in yet more convictions of elderly sex offenders who had worked in children’s homes in north Wales in the 1970s and 80s and the Macur Review was on it’s way to reassure the world that the Waterhouse Report was in no way a cover-up but for some unknown reason the Macur Review was so heavily redacted that no-one had any idea of what was in it… Savile had died and the media had acknowledged the extent of his offending and there had been a flurry of media interest in the NCCL ‘s rather benign view of child abusers in previous decades and gosh Harriet and Little Nell’s husband (Sir Henry Hodge, a judge) were at the scene of the crime re the NCCL at the time… Retired senior North Wales Police officer Gordon Anglesea was jailed for the historical abuse of kids in care in 2016, so Roger Poole et al will have known that Gordon was under investigation once more in the time leading up to Roger’s death…

became the acceptable face of trade unionism at the end of the bitterly divided 1980s, as the spokesman for ambulance staff in their largely successful six months of industrial action. He went on to build a reputation as one of the most constructive negotiators of his generation.

Poole’s homespun style, aided by his West Country burr, could not disguise a fierce commitment to low-paid workers, while his patient capacity to build trust and find a way through complex negotiations

Roger found a way through complex negotiations by blackmailing his opponents using his knowledge of their wrongdoing, he cut his teeth using that strategy in NUPE. Much of the mess and violence in N Ireland resulted from successive British Gov’ts using any methods at all to conceal the ring at Kincora Boys’ Home in Belfast that was linked to rings on mainland Britain, including Dafydd’s Gang. Dafydd was recruited by the British security services in the 1950s to infiltrate Welsh activists as well as Irish nationalist activists, so when Dafydd involved himself with violent crime, no-one could reign him in. The added extras were Dafydd’s Top Doctor mates advising on the torture of interns in N Ireland and adopting the pretence of ‘helping’ those interns whilst ensuring that the abuses continued. See previous posts eg. ‘More Antonin Artaud’.

later led to his appointment as chairman of the Norther Ireland Parades Commission (2005-09). Subsequently  his constructive, often humorous, presence was in demand as a patient behind-the-scenes fixer helping to resolve industrial relations conundrums.

Born in Bristol, he was the son of Samuel Poole, a decorator and trade unionist, and his wife Lillian (nee James).

Bristol was the home city of Dafydd’s accomplice Dr D.G.E. Wood. Wood’s father was a Top Doc in Bristol. Bristol was one of the hubs of the Gang’s network; Lord David Hunt read law at Bristol University while Wood was a medical student there. After graduation, Hunt remained in the area until he succeeded Dafydd’s mate Selwyn Lloyd as the Tory MP for Wirral in 1976, working on behalf of the Tory Party.

Roger was educated at one of the early comprehensives, Ashton Gate, where he led his first protest; he was also a lifelong supporter of Bristol Rovers. With the school committed to playing rugby, he headed a successful delegation to demand a soccer pitch. But he left at 15 without any qualifications.

Rugby is popular in medical schools; Wood was an enthusiastic rugger bugger when he was young. Wales of course is famous for rugby and there were very direct links between the Gang and rugby. Recruitment of staff for Bryn Estyn was carried out via Wrexham Rugby Club and no-one ever explained this eccentric arrangement.

Sir Tasker Watkins aka ‘The Greatest Living Welshman’ who doubled up as Deputy Lord Chief Justice, 1988-93 and then became a Lord Justice of Appeal and one of the biggest umbrellas that the Gang had in Wales was President of the Welsh Rugby Union, 1993-2004. Tasker played with and supported a number of Rugby Clubs in south Wales during his lifetime. Tasker was a War Hero who was awarded a Victoria Cross. He was also a bent barrister and a member of Middle Temple with Ronnie Waterhouse. Tasker presided over Assizes in various parts of south, mid and west Wales and was a Recorder in Merthyr Tydfil. Tasker was the Leader of the corrupt Chester and Wales Circuit, 1970-71 and Presiding Judge of the same circuit, 1975-80. Tasker’s bonus balls were his roles as a Chairman of the Mental Health Review Tribunal for the Wales Region, 1960-71 – Gwynne, Dafydd and everyone linked to Profumo must have been delighted – and as President of the Welsh National School of Medicine, 1987-98.

Tasker’s very safe hands will have been the reason why he was appointed Deputy Chief Justice by Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane who did such big favours in May 1987 for Prof Ollie Brooke of St George’s, one of the Mr Bigs in a pan-European paedophile ring (see eg. post ‘Oliver !’) and remained as Deputy Chief Justice after Lane’s retirement, under Lord Peter Taylor of Gosforth who carried on Geoffrey Lane’s good work. See previous posts for details of Lane, Taylor and Tasker…

Tasker was one of the Establishment’s reinforcements to pack senior roles in law and the judiciary during the 1980s when it looked as though the Westminster Paedophile Ring was at risk after Tory MP Geoffrey Dickens refused to keep quiet and spoke about the matter in the Commons in the first half of the 1980s under Parliamentary privilege, as discussed in previous posts.

See the source image

I understand that Tasker’s talents were utilised re shafting me. Tasker pegged out on 9 Sept 2007, as the Top Docs left Nerys dying when they realised that They Had Done Everything That They Could.

Tasker knew that I’d finally obtained my medical records in 2005 via the High Court in Cardiff and there would be publications of some sort on the way at some point. I had of course written to Prof Robert Bluglass and Dr Nita Mitchell-Heggs of St George’s Hospital Medical School to ask them if they could explain their contribution to the contents of my records and I am told that caused quite a panic… If dear old Tasker wasn’t dead himself I’d ask him about the extensive perjury over so many years, encouraged by his mates, as detailed on this blog.

Tasker worked for the security services in Ancient Times and will have been one of those who believed that Dafydd was a useful addition to their ranks.

Tasker has a son and a daughter; they won’t be working on the tills in Tescos, but I haven’t yet found out who they are.

Ioan Bowen Rees, the Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council while the ring raged within the Council’s child care system, was President of Bethesda Rugby Club. Bangor University had an out of control rugby club, as did the Welsh National School of Medicine. In the early 1980s one of the medical students who was in the Welsh National School of Medicine’s Rugby Club who sexually assaulted more than one woman in Cardiff, as well as the usual brawling and smashing pubs up. There was outrage that he was being protected by the medical school in Cardiff, even in the case of the assaults on women. He qualified and no doubt has spent a whole career in medicine doing damage without being held to account.

There is a high commitment to rugby on the part of the medical establishment even in the case of serious injury  of one of their own.

After working in a laboratory and as a motor mechanic, he became a security officer on Avonmouth dock. In 1970 he and his wife Bernice (nee Peglar) spent their honeymoon with friends driving a doubledecker bus, with a CBI grant to promote British goods, across the US and into South America, until it sank in a Peruvian river..

There was a Rosina Peglar who worked as a nursing assistant at the Hergest Unit for years. Rosina was among the staff at the Hergest who was genuinely very nice and helpful to patients on a personal level, but who did know that serious abuses were happening. Rosina witnessed those abuses and when the Gang were working overtime to have me convicted and imprisoned after 2001, at one point Rosina perjured herself along with a number of others. Rosina then appeared in the local media bagging an award for her selfless duty to Empowered Service Users.

I am fairly sure that Rosina made the statement about me at gunpoint; two of her relatives lived in Rachub in the 1990s when I lived there, as did Ioan Bowen Rees, although man of the people Ioan lived in a huge Plas down a lane, shielded from the plebs who were being shafted by the Council that he ran. Previous posts have discussed the unexpected deaths of three witnesses who lived in that village and knew me well (and other Empowered Service Users as well) who all died shortly after it became known that I had finally obtained my files and was publishing. One of the witnesses died after Dr Heinersdorff, the GP on call, flatly refused to visit him when she was rung. She lived about 10 mins by foot up the hill from the man who died.

Much as I wish that Rosina and so many others had not been so weak, can I just respond to people who are telling me that I’m saying that Rosina et al were better than their colleagues but they were still culpable, by emphasising that had ANYONE stood up to be counted, perhaps Rosina, Pat Capper and other staff who definitely were not among the worst might have felt able to blow the whistle as well? It was known in Ysbyty Gwynedd that you would be flattened if you challenged the Gang, don’t underestimate the reign of terror. Nursing assistants and receptionists like Rosina and Pat were terrified of the Gang, no-one would have supported them if they had broken ranks and they knew it. There were only two whistleblowers in Gwynedd: Alison Taylor and the Occupational Therapist who was the Hergest whistleblower. People watched what happened to them and just did not dare do the same.

I was told that there was a social worker from outside of Wales who went to work with the infamous thugs of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team, raised concerns about their appalling misconduct and was given sick leave. The day after she returned to work, she rang a friend and told them that she had been sexually assaulted by a male member of staff from the Arfon CMHT who told her that was what happened to ‘grasses’; she left Wales the next day and never returned.

The Welsh Gov’t knew that there were complaints of workplace bullying and assault of Empowered Service Users on the part of the Arfon CMHT and four of them repeatedly perjured themselves in Court in relation to me (see ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’ and ‘The Bitterest Pill’), yet there was never any disciplinary action taken against any of them. On one occasion I wrote to Jeff Crowther, the Nursing Officer at Ysbyty Gwynedd, after I was told by an Empowered Service User that Kevin Payne, her CPN from the Arfon CMHT, had told her not to be friends with me because I was ‘extremely dangerous’ and Jeff raised the matter with the Arfon Team. Kevin Payne responded by telling the Empowered Service User that she’d got him ‘into trouble’, so he wouldn’t be ‘helping’ her again. Payne subsequently featured in the local media when the School of Nursing/Healthcare Sciences presented him with an award for being an Outstanding Angel; when Payne completed his degree, he was given a First.

The tutors at the School of Nursing in Bangor had all worked as Angels with the Gang and the Head of that School, Ruhi Behi, had worked as an Angel in the North Wales Hospital and then completed a degree in Psychology at Bangor. Two people who graduated in psychology at the same time as Behi told me that there was a widespread belief that someone else undertook Behi’s degree for him; he worked as a Angel in the operating theatre in the C&A Hospital throughout his course and no-one remembered seeing him attending lectures or sitting any exams. As Behi was working in the C&A in the operating theatre during that time, he will know the full story re me being given an unnecessary general anaesthetic and then knowingly transfused with blood infected with HIV in the C&A Hospital in April 1984.

Ruhi Behi was a very unpopular man and there were constant complaints of workplace bullying against him, some of which resulted in Bangor University being sued. Things became so difficult that not only did Ruhi’s Behi’s Dept have great trouble recruiting staff, but people who were personally approached/headhunted simply said ‘absolutely not, I know what Behi has done to people’. Even Bangor University staff from other Depts who were asked to teach on courses run by Behi and his colleagues were treated with such rudeness and hostility that they refused invitations to return. One of those visiting lecturers being me.

‘Mr Fawlty I No Want To Work Here Any More.’

Although I declined the offer of giving more lectures at the School of Nursing, I was at one time the joint PhD supervisor for one of the postgrads in that School. After I left the building following a supervision session, I received information telling me that one of Behi’s Senior Nursing Lecturers had seen me and told the School receptionist not to let me into the building again because I was ‘dangerous and attacked people with knives’.

By that time, I had received such a bellyful from that fucking Gang – I knew the Senior Nursing Lecturer concerned, he had previously worked at Bryn-y-Neuadd Hospital for the ‘mentally handicapped’ in Llanfairfechan, the dumping ground for those who had been brain damaged by Gwynne’s lobotomies as well as others and F had told me a few anecdotes re that Senior Nursing Lecturer when F had carried out voluntary work at Bryn-y-Neuadd for a short time in the late 1980s – that I made a complaint to the University. The Senior Nursing Lecturer disappeared from the University shortly afterwards and I was told that he had been dismissed. That was another black mark against Merfyn the VC’s name, so I’ll remind Miranda and Gordon who received copies of my hacked e mails of just how serious the misconduct on the part of that lot was, over years, it was all detailed in e mails to my friends and colleagues. Behi’s entire Dept should have been closed, not given huge quantities of Welsh Gov’t funding and touted about as a centre of ‘excellence’.

Bryn-y-Neuadd was so ahead of the game that Anne Craft, the wife one of Dafydd’s pals, worked there and Supported Residents In Their Sexual Relationships. Including residents who were so disabled that they couldn’t communicate. Not that it did Ann any harm, she ended up with a senior academic role at Nottingham University and a charidee Committed to Empowering Learning Disabled People has been founded in her name. Ann’s husband Dr Michael Craft carried out community research into incest on Anglesey with Dafydd. See ‘The Old Devils’.

It is no surprise that Excellence pervaded the service for people with learning disabilities in north Wales because Dafydd’s mate Cledwyn Williams was, from 1983 to 1996, Assistant Director of Social Services, responsible for mentally handicapped services and for the All-Wales Strategy for People with Learning Disabilities. Cledwyn was responsible for developing services for people with learning disabilities for the Education, Health and Social Services group. After this, Cledwyn became Director of Social Services for Conwy.

Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate Sir William Mars-Jones’s sister-in-law Dilys was, among other things, a Councillor for Conwy, as was Gareth Jones – who also served as the Plaid AM for Conwy – who in the 1980s was appointed to the Panel of the Cartrefle Inquiry established by Clwyd County Council to investigate the abuse of kids at Cartrefle, a children’s home of excesses. Gareth and his fellow investigators found no real cause for concern, although Stephen Norris, who worked at Cartrefle, was one of the worst abuses employed by Clwyd Social Services and subsequently served two prison terms for sexual assaults on boys in care. See previous posts…

Cledwyn Williams is now, along with Dafydd’s former mistress Lucille Hughes, a Trustee of Dafydd’s charidee CAIS; Cledwyn is Vice-Chair of CAIS.

Dafydd really is the only game in north Wales, Dafydd is the key to an academic Chair, generous funding streams, an advisory role to the Welsh Gov’t and indeed elected office.

After Prof Fergus Lowe of the Psychology Dept had used Ruhi Behi as much as he could, Fungus hounded Behi out of his job at Bangor University in approx. 2008-09. Behi developed Bell’s Palsy and his targets delighted in referring to him as ‘Ruined Behi’.

Some of Ruined Behi’s colleagues who previously worked as Angels with the Gang have ended up as Leaders of the Nursing Profession outside of Wales. Mike Nolan became Prof Michael Nolan of Sheffield University and after Fiona Irvine became Prof Fiona Irvine of Glyndwr University, she became Prof Fiona Irvine of the Queen’s Medical Centre, Birmingham University. See previous posts.


Lest anyone be too appalled at Record Breaking Kevin Payne’s comments to my friend re the Danger that she was in from me, before Payne Warned her about me Tony Francis told me not to befriend her because ‘she is bad news’. I continued with the friendship, so Mr Payne stepped in…

I now realise that the real problem with us two Nutters being friendly with each other was that my friend was being sexually exploited by the junior docs at Ysbyty Gwynedd and I knew about that. Two of them made her pregnant and arranged the abortions themselves (they were working on the Obs and Gynae team); she didn’t want either of the abortions, so to ensure an appropriate outcome, she was admitted to the psych ward on each occasion and reminded that she couldn’t possibly look after a baby what with her being a Nutter. After each abortion she was then discharged with no care, being such a Nutter. After the second abortion, she was in addition refused all further care from the psych services, in writing, by Tony Francis, which was then backed up in writing by Sadie Francis. Who served as the ‘second opinion’ to her husband.

The GP of this young woman who was au fait with the full horror was Lyndon Miles, who is a friend of Edwina Hart, the Welsh Gov’t Health Minister, 2007-11. Edwina, like everyone else, found that there was just nothing that she could do about the abusive, violent, perjuring NHS staff in north Wales, as discussed in previous posts.

Lyndon arrived in Gwynedd in 1983/84, as part of the influx of Nice Young Doctors, along with the Drs Francis, to reassure the people of Gwynedd that after Mary Wynch, Things Had Changed. Lyndon held sessions at the Student Health Centre at UCNW when Gwynne and D.G.E. Wood were there. Lyndon was the GP of my friend Anne Vernon who was killed by the Gang in April 1986.

Some years ago Lyndon became Chairman of St David’s Hospice, an institution founded and run by the Gang. After the Hergest Unit was a charred heap on the ground and Alun Davies’s wrongdoing could be disguised no longer, Davies became CEO of St David’s Hospice. After Davies finally had to jump ship from there, another former crooked NHS manager from north Wales, Trystan Pritchard, took over as CEO. See eg. ‘The CEOs Of St David’s Hospice’.

Nice Young Doctor Lyndon:

Once Alun Davies arrived at St David’s Hospice, Stars Of Stage And Screen began supporting that establishment. Ken Barlow from Corrie became Patron. Ken aka William Roach and his son luvvie Linus Roach went to Rydal School near Colwyn Bay; Rydal has educated many of the affluent professional class of north Wales and has been the subject of historic abuse investigations. Old boys from the 1980s in particular alleged that there was a serious problem with a small number of teachers. Between 1983-86 I lived in a shared house on Anglesey owned by a former lecturer at UCNW who’s son, David Parry-Jones, went to Rydal; David’s sister, Gwen Parry-Jones went to Penrhos College, the affiliated girls’ school that later merged with Rydal. I have blogged previously about the benefits that accrued to the Parry-Jones’s re them keeping schtum about the Gang’s activities with regard to me. David Parry-Jones was a keen rugby player…

Alun Davies was still CEO of St David’s Hospice when they held a fundraising concert, ‘The Giddy Goat’, featuring Paul Merton, Marcus Brigstocke and Phil Jupitus. See previous posts for details, including links between these comedians and the Gang’s network; Brigstocke’s mum was the Headmistress of the elite school attended by Ronnie Waterhouse’s daughters and became a Tory peer.

See previous posts eg. ‘Another Case Of ‘Not Knowing’?’ re the sexual exploitation of Lyndon Miles’s patient, the Nutter, who, until she was diagnosed as a Nutter but one who Could Not Be Treated, was an outstanding student at Bangor University, who was winning national poetry competitions and bagged a First, but unlike Kevin Payne didn’t do so by assisting a gang of sex offenders.

I cannot understand how Sister Ella Fisk who ran the Day Centre at the Hergest Unit kept telling me that it was not true that the Top Docs at St David’s Hospital (the Obs and Gynae Hospital in Bangor) were not sexually assaulting the patients when she knew that I had been a good mate of the girl whom two of them made pregnant.

Among the letters of mine that were stolen from my loft by builders and given to George Carman and the Digger were letters to Brown discussing the Nutter who had become pregnant by two junior docs at St David’s (at the time, St David’s staff were in the process of moving into their New Facilities In Ysbyty Gwynedd. They changed the building rather than the staff, in fine north Wales/NHS tradition). Imagine my surprise when I also found, years later, that the letters that I wrote to Jeff had also been handed to various third parties, including the bent Welsh Office lawyer Andrew Park. I discussed the conduct of those junior doctors in one letter to Jeff. So he ‘raised concerns’ re Kevin Payne but not the junior docs. Thus Kevin Payne refused to see my friend any more and the Drs Francis refused her all psych care as well.

These adventures occurred at the very end of 1991 and the first few months of 1992. My friend disappeared from north Wales later on in 1992, having been told by the Hergest Unit that she would not be given any NHS care in north Wales ‘because she was no longer a student and didn’t live in Wales’. Her mother and stepfather lived on Anglesey; Tony Francis responded by saying that ‘But ah her father lived in England and her mother didn’t want her daughter to live with her on Anglesey’. That was true, but her father was severely mentally ill and was in no position to support her; his house was uninhabitable anyway. This Empowered Service User was yet another person who was refused ‘care’ when her mistreatment at the hands of the Ah the doctors they were wonderful became so obvious that it could not be denied. So she was forced out of north Wales; pregnant (twice) by junior Top Docs, no NHS care, no home, no money. I was later told that she was living in England somewhere. I never heard from her again.

Back To Basics everyone and now there’s a Citizen’s Charter to Ensure That Your Rights Are Respected By The NHS.

Lord David Hunt, Secretary of State for Wales, 4 May 1990-27 May 1993:

Official portrait of David Hunt, Baron Hunt of Wirral crop 2.jpg

In 1990, Lord Hunt joined Brenda’s Privy. Lord Hunt is now the Head Honcho at ‘international law firm’ DAC Beachcroft, that handles work for the MDU.

Lord Hunt, did you read my letters to Jeff and others about my friend, or was it just Andrew Park who was at the business end as it were?

Lord Hunt, who was so pissed off with Alun Michael for taking instructions from NUPE re what matters to raise in the House!

When my friend was being passed around the Top Docs, Michael Mansfield was Bravely Defending some of those who had taken part in the Risley Riots on 1989, as discussed in previous posts. MM Bravely Defended people who admitted to him that they were guilty of the very serious crimes with which they had been charged, but he didn’t mention anything about the Risley  ‘hospital wing’ being full of kids in care and Empowered Service Users who were being found dead at an impressive rate, having ‘committed suicide’ although they were Under Suicide Watch and the Medical Care at Risley was deemed to be of an acceptable standard by the Home Office. See eg. ‘Include Me Out’.

When I wrote to Michael Mansfield in 1993 about the abuses of Gwynedd social workers, I received a one-line reply. At the time, MM shared Took’s Court Chambers with St Helena the Wimmin’s Champ, who was taking a particular interest in Wimmin In Secure Hospitals. See ‘Eve Was Framed – As Were A Lot Of Other People’ and ‘Close Your Eyes And Make A WISH’.

Dafydd, Tony Francis et al were at the time, without my knowledge, trying to make a case for me to be sent to live with Jimmy Savile, who in 1988 had been appointed as the General Manager of Broadmoor. St Helena and the Wimmin never mentioned what he was getting up to at Broadmoor either, although they did know.

Back in Britain, Poole became an official of the National Union of Public Employees, which organised lower-paid, largely manual workers, particularly in the health service and local authorities, eventually becoming an assistant general secretary. The union was at the centre of the 1978-79winter of discontent”, which alienated many voters and assisted the election of Margaret Thatcher’s Conservative government.

When it was eventually admitted that a huge paedophile ring had operated within Islington’s children’s homes for years, much was made of industrial action by NUPE not having put children at risk. This could well have been true, the kids were safer when NUPE members were nowhere near them, in the way that the presence of Dafydd simply escalated the Risk faced by Empowered Service Users. The Islington ring had links to the Gang in north Wales; there an exchange of staff between the two rings. Michael Taylor, a former Franciscan Friar, worked as the Deputy Superintendent at a children’s reception centre in Islington before being appointed as Officer-in-Charge of Bersham Hall, a children’s home in Clwyd, in Sept 1972. Taylor was a serial child molester. See eg. ‘So Absolutely Sane, Clear, Quick, Intelligent and Safe…’.

Little Nell spent many years as an Islington Borough Councillor, including a number of years as Leader of the Council.

Little Nell’s fellow Councillor at Islington Borough Council and her Deputy on the Housing Committee was Jack Straw, who married his second wife Alice Perkins in 1978. Alice was brought up in Hampstead among the Camden crowd, which included the second homers at Croesor and their mates, Labour Royalty eg. Douglas and Peggy Jay, Lena Jeger and her Top Doc husband, Michael Foot and Jill Craigie… The organised abuse in the Poor Bit of Camden – the targets lived in the St Pancras area in the bad housing – was facilitated/concealed by the Hampstead crowd across the political spectrum eg. the Tories Henry and Barbara Brooke and the Neuberger crew. So as in north Wales, there was no-one who would speak for people having the hardest time.

Again, like north Wales, all lawyers in Camden were on board. Benedict Birnberg did take the initial case against Dafydd et al for Mary Wynch, but she was then dropped after the Gang continued their abuses once Mary had won in front of the Master of the Rolls Lord Donaldson in 1985. Birnbergs were warned never to take another case against Dafydd should I knock on their door. Camden lawyer Leolin Price was married to Lindy, who was the daughter of Tory peer Lord Brecon aka David Vivian Penrose Lewis, a member of the Gang from Gwynne’s heyday in the 1950s…

After graduating from St Anne’s College, Oxford, Alice Perkins joined the Civil Service Fast Stream in 1971. The early years of her career were spent in the DHSS, so Alice knew about much.

See the source image

In 1993, Perkins moved to the Treasury as Director of Public Spending, where her priorities were Defence, the Intelligence Agencies, Aid, Foreign Office and Agriculture spending. In 1998, Alice returned to the Dept of Health as Director General for Corporate Management responsible for administration of the Department. In 2001, Perkins moved to the Cabinet Office to work as Director General, Corporate Development Group, responsible for human resources across Gov’t, top appointments and Civil Service reform, reporting direct to the Cabinet Secretary. Perkins left the Civil Service in 2005. See previous posts for details of Alice’s many other appointments.

But Poole showed how well he had absorbed the lessons of the 1970s and 80s as spokesman and chief negotiator for the group of five unions that mounted industrial action in 1989. The claim by ambulance staff included a £20 per week increase and a pay formula linked to inflation. It also sought money to develop the new role of paramedic.

The dispute became bitter as it escalated from overtime ban to emergency-cover-only arrangements, to lockouts and occupations of some stations, with the government bringing in army ambulances. The unions trod a fine line between public support and disapprobation. But Poole’s reasonable manner in his regular broadcasting appearances and the tight unity of the inter-union negotiating team contrasted with the divided voices from government and health service employers. In the end the unions achieved a 16.9% increase and the funding that allowed staff to train as paramedics. Although some criticised the failure to achieve a binding pay formula, Poole hailed the settlement as “driving a coach and horses through the government’s pay policy”. Poole’s public reasonableness – he was runner-up as the Today programme’s “man of the year” – had much to do with it.

His own philosophy was: “I believe in the collective approach to solving problems. The problem with the unions is that their public face has belied their private face. The private face is people out there spending hours so that some poor soul who has had an accident at work gets compensation. The public face is the big set-piece confrontations, and the unions put this across very badly.

“Scargill and Thatcher were opposite sides of the same coin. They were both saying, ‘It’s either me or you.’

Thatch had Scargill, a good friend of Michael Mansfield and the Windbag, over a barrel as Poole knew.

I don’t think you can operate like that.”

But they did, because Thatch had a bigger and better umbrella than Scargill re that Tory aide of hers who was molesting kids procured by the Gang in the form of his sister, Dame Mary Morrison, Woman-of-the-Bedchamber to Brenda:

Carlo served as the Chancellor of UCNW from 1976. I only found out the other day that in 1947, the Earl of Merioneth aka Phil the Greek, was appointed Chancellor of UCNW. So Brenda’s family would seem to have ignored some terrible things at UCNW since post-WW II.

The Windbags’ friend Lord Cledwyn, the Labour MP for Anglesey, 1951-79, who served as Secretary of State for Wales, 1966-68 while George Thomas was a Minister in the Welsh office, was a valuable umbrella for Gwynne and Dafydd for decades. Lord Cledwyn succeeded William Mars-Jones as President of UCNW in 1994/95. See previous posts eg. ‘The Cradle Of Filth’.

In 1993 Poole helped to negotiate the merger of his union with the larger Nalgo, representing local authority white-collar staff, and the health union, Cohse, to form Unison. He became an assistant general secretary.

NUPE, NALGO and COHSE merged in July 1993 to form UNISON. Rodney Bickerstaffe became the General Secretary of NUPE in 1981 and took up the post of General Secretary of UNISON in Feb 1996. Bickerstaffe, who had such a saintly reputation that Miranda wondered how He Did It, was an organiser for NUPE in Yorkshire during the latter 1960s and 70s. Through his work Defending The Interests Of The Oppressed, Rodney Bickerstaffe encountered one David Williams.

David Williams grew up in Gwynedd and Trained as an Angel at the North Wales Hospital when Gwynne was at his lobotomising best. Williams became active in COHSE and in 1955 became a COHSE organiser in Savile-land in Yorkshire. In 1962 David Williams was appointed National Officer for COHSE. The year that Harold Macmillan kicked Gwynne and Dafydd’s mates out of the Cabinet in the Night of the Long Knives and the year before the Profumo Affair became public, in which Gwynne and Dafydd were involved. Williams never looked back, becoming Assistant General Secretary of COHSE in 1974 and then serving as General Secretary, 1983-87.

David Williams is a well-known Champ of the NHS and a big admirer of NYE. Here’s Williams (the dark haired man in the centre of the photo) with Nye:

The COHSE blog provides this pic of Angels from Hellingly Hospital urging the public to Support Them:

See the source image

Hellingly Hospital was originally known as the East Sussex County Asylum. Hellingly was on the site of Dafydd’s partner gang in the Brighton area; the kids from the north Wales children’s homes were trafficked to brothels in London and Brighton.

Some years ago I was told that (another) grade A row had broken out with Mr Bridgy Celeb at the centre of it in the wake of someone from Brighton rearing their head with litigation on the grounds that Mr Bridgy Celeb was the father of her teenaged daughter after a questionable encounter (in terms of the degree of informed consent involved) in Brighton. It was alleged that brothels and sex workers were part of the Brighton events. My only surprise was that it was Brighton rather than Bristol or somewhere else in the West Country. I have since been told that Mr Bridgy Celeb knew about Dafydd’s trafficking ring; I don’t know whether Mr Bridgy Celeb found out before or after the Gang came after me. Mr Bridgy Celeb is five years older than me and has always been very sociable and gregarious, he might well have bumped into someone linked with Dafydd before I ever encountered the Gang, particularly with regard to pop and rock stars who were playing in West Country venues in the 1970s and 80s.

There were some total wallies from Weston-Super-Mare who formed a group called ‘Racey’ and managed to get themselves on Top of the Pops in 1979. My mates and I cringed with horror at what the Radio 1 DJs would no doubt have described as their ‘great lyrics’ – Racey’s one Hit having the chorus of ‘Some Girls Do, Some Girls Don’t/ Some Girls Need A Lot Of Loving… – they were SO bad, but much entertainment was gained when Racey arrived in the shop in Bridgy (or it might have been Taunton) where the then girlfriend of Mr Bridgy Celeb worked and they gave her their autographs. ‘To Wendy, with love from Racey’.

I always wondered how the hell Racey turned up, in their TOTP gear, readily identifiable as Racey, in Wendy’s shop; I had info the other day that Racey and those promoting them knew who Wendy’s boyfriend was and that Wendy knew me. I can only presume that it was something to do with Stuart, the paedophile who was a spotter of Dafydd’s who lived near me when I was younger – Stuart briefly reappeared in 1979, sought me out and then returned ‘to Wales’ again – or the teachers at Chilton Trinity School…

See the source image

Racey died a merciful death not long afterwards and Wendy decided that she was better off without Mr Bridgy Celeb and eventually married someone else. I know that someone closely associated with Mr Bridgy Celeb kept in touch with Wendy though and Wendy might not have realised how many potential problems could result from that.

Mr Bridgy Celeb also encountered Shakin’ Stevens before Shaky vibrated his way to fame. Shaky Played Bridgy in 1978; Shaky was from south Wales and the wife of his one-time manager, Lorraine Barrett, was a friend of Rhodri Morgan who served as a Councillor in south Wales and then as an AM. I blogged about all this in previous posts, but some of the text seems to have disappeared…

Shaky is really called Michael Barratt and was the youngest of 11 children born to Jack and May Barratt. Shakey’s dad was a WW I veteran who by 1948 was working in the building trade, having previously worked as a coal miner. Shaky grew up in Ely, Cardiff, and as a teenager, in the mid-1960s he formed his first amateur rock and roll band with school friends and became its vocalist and frontman. The short-lived band changed its name several times and performed gigs in the local Cardiff and South Wales area. In the late 1960s, Stevens was associated with the Young Communist League (YCL), the youth wing of the Communist Party of Great Britain through playing at YCL events. At the time the YCL was associated with several leading music industry figures, including Pete Townshend. The Townshend who has been done for child porn offences, as discussed in previous posts…

Shaky will have encountered at least some of the Communists of Gwynne and Dafydd’s network who were mates with the second homers at Croesor, Eric Hobsbawm, Uncle Harry’s family and friends etc. See eg. ‘Captain Swing and His Crew’.

Shaky is a lifelong supporter of his local football team Cardiff City.

Lorraine Jayne Barrett (born 1950) is the former Welsh Labour & Co-operative  AM for Cardiff South and Penarth and an Assembly Commissioner from 2007 until 2011.

Lorraine Barrett publicly announced in February 2009 that she would not be seeking re-election to the Assembly in 2011. I can remember what was happening in the NHS in north Wales when Lorraine the Angel decided that Rhodri and Edwina, I No Want To Work Here Anymore.

and would instead pursue her new vocation as a Humanists UK-accredited humanist Celebrant. Rosie Waite, a north Wales social worker who was a neighbour of mine in Rachub left social work to work in the Library at Bangor University, after telling me that social work in north Wales was so abusive that she had given up with it. Rosie, F and I had many conversations re the abuses of the Gang, including details of Dafydd’s excesses with female patients and a chain of ‘care homes’ given the stamp of approval by Conway Social Services that were a front for people trafficking, behind which the hand of Dafydd drove business. Imagine my surprise when a few years later I discovered that Rosie had bagged herself a job as a social work trainer for Conwy Social Services. Rosie has now trained as a Humanist Funeral Celebrant. I have no idea what the attraction for such a career is on the part of members of Dafydd’s network…

The Library at Bangor University was one of the hotspots for those who Wanted Merfyn Jones Out As VC, one of the movers and shakers being the Librarian Eileen Tilley who doubled up at a corrupt UCU rep. Another one of Merfyn’s greatest foes within the ranks of Bangor University was Aled Griffiths aka the Buffet Slayer. The Slayer’s wife Joanna has not long retired after years as the Director of Conwy Social Services. The Slayer’s sister Gwenan Carrington is the former Director of Gwynedd Social Services; after they imploded, Gwenan was appointed Director of Community Services for Anglesey. There weren’t many Community Services on Anglesey when Gwenan took over as Director, now there are none. The Slayer’s twin brother Huw is a grossly incompetent lawyer who used to watch as victims of the Gang were stitched up in the north Wales Courts during the 1980s and 90s. Pere Griffiths was a Nonconformist Minister on Anglesey, so he too knew Dafydd, Gwynne, Lucille and the crowd.

So the Slayer and his family are the key to riches and success in north west Wales. Before the Slayer worked at Bangor University, he worked at the Normal College. See eg. ‘Are You Local?’ and ‘Local Accessories’.

Lorraine Barrett was born in Ynyshir, Rhondda, to Rosina and Donald Booth, a retired coalminer, and went to Porth County School for Girls. She married Paul “Legs” Barrett, the manager/agent of rock and roll acts such as Shakin’ Stevens and the Sunsets. They have a son, Lincoln Barrett (also known as drum and bass DJ High Contrast) and a daughter, Satellite City actor Shelley Miranda Barrett.

Lorraine was an Angel and a Councillor in the Vale of Glamorgan

Meet the AM for the Vale of Glamorgan since 1999:

Sister Hutt’s dad was a Top Doc who, after training at Tommy’s, spent years working in Uganda and subsequently returned to a post at the Uganda that is Guy’s Hospital, as Prof of Pathology. Prof Michael Hutt’s colleague Prof Harry Keen was of course THE Uncle Harry. Michael Hutt and Uncle Harry were Top Docs who remembered Gwynne and a Young Dafydd.

Lorraine was a Penarth Town Councillor and worked as an assistant to the then Cardiff South and Penarth MP, Alun Michael from 1987-99. Lorraine was a member of the Welsh Labour Executive and the National Policy Forum.

Barrett was elected to the Welsh National Assembly as the member for Cardiff South and Penarth in May 1999 and was subsequently been re-elected twice.

Barrett is a member of the Unite the Union and was Chair of the Co-operative Party Group and the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Animal Welfare within the Assembly. She is an Honorary Associate of the National Secular Society. Lorraine is also a member of Humanists UK (formerly the British Humanist Association).

Lorraine the Humanist Celebrant led the funeral ceremony in May 2017 for Rhodri the Ale Sinking Meathead.

In her capacity as Assembly Commissioner for a Sustainable Environment, Lorraine was involved in a 2007 row over genetically modified foods in the Welsh Assembly Canteen. The Assembly had earlier signed a document committing to “maximum restrictions on GM crops” when it later became apparent that the Assembly canteen was serving items containing GM ingredients. Barrett explained the situation saying “We have discussed this with our in-house caterers, Charlton House. They do not deliberately source GM foods and in fact make every effort to avoid using GM products.”

Barrett was critical of the planned Cardiff Bay expansion of “something like 1,250 apartments a year“. Barrett suggested this might cause future problems with community cohesion and lack of affordable housing. Barrett pressed for the Cardiff Bay Barrage to be opened up for pedestrian and cycle traffic. The pedestrian and cyclist short cut to Cardiff across the barrage finally opened to the public on Friday 27 June 2008. Barrett was one of the first to cross, walking to work at the Assembly and she described the experience as “invigorating”.

Lorraine Barrett AM.jpg

F was detained Hellingly Hospital in the 1970s. F maintained that Hellingly was seriously bad; fights between the patients were set up by Angels who then watched the fight as a sporting event. A ‘totally psychotic Teddy boy’ tried to murder F in Hellingly; the staff admitted that they were unable to protect F after the Teddy boy told them that he would try and kill F again as soon as he could, so F was discharged, homeless although he had days previously been declared to be so crackers that he was in need of being detained in Hellingly under the Mental Health Act.

While at Hellingly, the Top Doc breached F’s confidence by discussing ‘his case’ with F’s father-in-law, whom F loathed. After I began this blog I received information alleging that F’s father-in-law, a society dentist with friends in Harley Street, did a deal with the Doc to damage F. There are also suspicions that Dafydd was dealing with F’s father-in-law after F moved to Carneddi; F was fitted up for Class A drugs and arson in 1986 and ended up in Risley and Denbigh for a year, unlawful detained. F also could well have witnessed a murder in Risley.

See previous posts for info on Hellingly Hospital.

I have been very interested in the info that arrived after I began blogging. We always knew that the Top Docs and their associates were bad, but they were much worse than we realised. Furthermore a great many other people seem to have known this but nobody ever told us…

They were also utterly incompetent but in a way that rendered their targets ‘not credible’ as witnesses. I’m happy to use F as an example here because F was always quite upfront re his diagnosis of schizophrenia. Throughout my time with F, the Hergest Unit constantly banged as to whether F’s schizophrenia was ‘drug induced’ or ‘there anyway’. F cheerfully admitted that when younger he’d been a heavy cannabis smoker, was keen on shrooms, hallucinogens and amphetamines. Ironically F only ever took speed after giving it up for ages when he was flogged it in Denbigh by one of Dafydd’s dealers.

F will not have done himself any good by his excessive use of recreational chemicals, but it was clear to me that not only was much of his distress years later caused by the dreadful conduct of those who Help and their frankly dangerous prescribing practices, but F had probably never suffered from ‘schizophrenia’ even by the criteria of Top Docs at that time. He seemed to have had a drug-induced psychosis, the symptoms of which terrified him and was then framed for a serious offence that resulted in him being kept in the hell-holes of Risley and Denbigh for a year. By the time that F emerged, he had lost contact with many of his mates, his marriage had been badly damaged and he never really recovered from the fall-out. The world was told that he had schizophrenia and would ‘never get better’.

I used to spend much time telling F that it was irrelevant whether he had drug induced or ‘real’ schizophrenia, that illness (or, more properly, group of illnesses) was poorly understood even by the best of Top Docs, some maintained that it didn’t exist, but Dafydd et al were just bonkers anyway and could not be believed on any matter. What mattered as far as I could see was providing F with a low stress environment because he was massively anxious about everything. So the Services had us arrested constantly, they hijacked F’s baby, they encouraged predators to unlawfully run up bills in his name by using his personal data, they raised his anxieties constantly by implying that my continued friendship with Brown was a big threat to F, they constantly screwed up his medication, they prescribed drugs that were known to increase symptoms that he found hard to tolerate and then told him not to listen to me when I was telling F that these were known to be side-effects of the drugs that were being prescribed for him…

In the face of all that, keeping F’s stress levels down was very, very difficult. He also suffered from chronic insomnia, which was partly due to the ‘medication’, so he would angrily ring the GPs in Bethesda. I used to tell F not to waste his time, they were hopeless anyway; meanwhile, the GPs complained about F ringing them with ‘trivia’, while at the same time emphasising that he must not Listen To Sally, he must er Talk To The Doctors…

The Services surpassed themselves when on the day before we went to Portugal for a week on one of our Brown-funded jaunts, F, as usual, diligently went to the Hergest to Collect His Medication For The Holiday; it was constantly emphasised to F how Important it was Never To Miss Your Medication. When we got home, F did his usual bit, carefully counting the tablets to ensure that He Had Enough To Last. The right quantity weren’t there, by quite a long way as well. It wasn’t the pharmacy, it was the prescription issued by the appalling Dr Quasim Ijaz (see previous posts). There was no time to return to any pharmacy to get what was needed, so other Empowered Service Users helped as they so often did. It was the addictive benzodiazepines that were short, so our mates lent F some of theirs. It stopped a potential drug-related crisis in Portugal, but it did mean that I spent most of every day on holiday trying to reassure F to just CALM THE FUCK DOWN, we can deal with Ijaz’s fuckwittery when we get home…

Previous posts have discussed the many complaints against Ijaz and for the only time ever, F received an apology from Tony Francis for the cock-up. When Francis left the Hergest Unit, Ijaz was told by the authorities not to apply for Francis’s job (a consultant’s position) because there had been so many complaints that he would not get it. There were no applications for the post and after the Trust re-advertised three times with no joy, Ijaz was given the job, although Quasim Ijaz did not have the qualifications and CV required under GMC rules for a consultant’s post. The GMC knew that. Ijaz remained at the Hergest Unit for at least another 15 years. There were stacks of complaints and deaths. Ijaz is still on the Medical Register but working somewhere other than Gwynedd.

See the source image

Many patients complained to GPs, other consultants, Angels and social workers about Ijaz. Dr Heinersdorff of Bethesda admitted to me that Ijaz ‘Is stiff and uncommunicative’. (Indeed, he did not speak to patients, he just stared at them, read the notes of fantasy written by others, repeated their frightening diagnosis and handed over the wrong prescription.) Dr H’s friend Jeff Crowther told F that Ijaz was a very nice bloke when F raised his concerns… There was a complaint of indecent assault against Ijaz; there was no need for an investigation though because that patient ‘doesn’t like Dr Ijaz’ in the way that I ‘don’t like Dafydd’. None of the patients liked Dr Ijaz because he was just so bloody unpleasant…

Ijaz lived in Holyhead, so the Windbags’ Support Group in that town will know all about him.

Brown observed that in the 1980s, he could have supported me much more effectively if the ‘chaos that is the mental health services’ would just fuck off and keep out of it. I ended up feeling the same way re F and Those Who Help. ‘You are inflicting massive damage on him, you are raising his fears and anxieties in every way possible, you are hostile to him and label him a ‘demanding patient’, yet whenever he shows any sign of telling you to take a running jump, pressure is applied from all angles to ensure that he does not just walk away from the whole lot of you…’

I watched the same process with other Empowered Service Users. The Services resented us, loathed us and undermined us, yet did everything possible to stop us from leaving their loving embrace. It is only after writing this blog that I realise how may of us were witnesses to some aspect of that paedophile ring. Empowered Service Users who definitely weren’t eg. younger people who had only moved to Wales at a much later date, were just treated minimally and neglectfully. They couldn’t understand why the ‘care’ was just so bad and why these aggressive loonies had ever been given jobs as social workers, Angels or Top Docs. They had no idea that when those ageing thugs had been younger they had run one of the biggest sex abuse gangs in the UK; none of them had any idea re good practice and they weren’t interested either. They just knew that if they carried on bandying the diagnoses about, people who had witnessed appalling misconduct, Ancient and Modern, would have their credibility undermined.

Jeff Crowther told me in the late 1980s that my ‘protests’ against Dafydd ‘have shot your credibility to bits’. So the Gang unlawfully withholding their own written, signed accounts of their law breaking and plans to frame me that were in my medical notes, them being caught red handed lying to the police, perjuring themselves, witnessed assaulting me, threatening me, third parties providing witness statements or complaining to the authorities about what they had seen happening to me and others counted for nothing, because in the end I had yelled at Jeff and a group of Docs in public ‘He’s fucking murdering people you idiots’ of Dafydd. Well he was and they all knew it.

As for whether F had ‘schizophrenia’ or not, one day Bob Tresman, F’s doc at the Hergest Unit, asked me ‘Do you think that he’s got schizophrenia?’ and I said ‘No, I don’t’. Tresman said ‘I agree with you actually’. Tresman and the rest continued to tell F that he had ‘chronic schizophrenia’ and I found out years later that on records that F was never given sight of, the words ‘resistant to medication’ followed. So that must have been why there was so much medication prescribed, years after that ‘diagnosis’ and new ‘medications’ as well, yet the other ‘medications’ that didn’t work were also still prescribed…

Had I had weeks to explain, I could have told Tresman and other people who asked me about F that I did believe that when he was younger he had experienced a serious psychotic illness almost certainly from excessive hallucinogen use, but just look at what the Top Docs have done… Quite apart from causing F to become addicted to benzodiazepines as well. I just never had enough time…

Patients’ friends and relatives would observe again and again of so many Empowered ones that ‘They’ve made them worse, I can’t believe it, they’ve made them worse and worse…’

Ah it’s the intractable nature of Serious Mental Illness! Well, you probably wouldn’t want to be clobbered with it if you were asked, but people have to begin to wake up and realise that people with serious conditions that could just about be lived through were finished once they encountered the Gang.


Read more about Bickerstaff, David Williams and others who had for years facilitated the organised abuse of vulnerable people and ignored the murders of witnesses and how they merged into one huge whole in the form of UNISON to Fight The NHS CUTS in ‘So Absolutely, Sane, Clear, Quick, Intelligent and Safe…’

I realised yesterday evening that there is one more man who gained high office in COHSE and then UNISON who is in need of a mention on this blog; I don’t know how I missed him previously, but he’s well worth a visit as they used to say on ‘Blue Peter’. Let me introduce Colm O’Kane. Colm succeeded Hector as Deputy General Secretary of COHSE, 1987-93; he then served as Deputy Gen Sec of UNISON, 1993-94 in partnership with Dave Prentis and Tom Sawyer, before Prentis succeeded to the same role alone.

Colm Sean O’Kane (1935-14 June 2005) was born in County Londonderry. O’Kane studied at St Columb’s College alongside John Hume. Colm then became a mental health nurse, working at Purdysburn Hospital in Belfast then worked at Darenth Park Hospital in Kent, with people with learning disabilities. Finally, Colm worked at Aston Hall Hospital in Derbyshire. Not only was Derbyshire the location of yet another big ring that exchanged staff with the Gang in north Wales, but Aston Hall Hospital is one institution that has received a lot of publicity in recent years in terms of patients, including children, being subjected to horrors worthy of the North Wales Hospital in terms of being drugged and/or subjected to ridiculous therapies while they were repeatedly sexually assaulted or raped. Aston Hall Top Doctor Kenneth Milner in particular has been named repeatedly as having been behind all this, but his targets have made it clear that a lot of other people knew what was happening to them, including the ‘authorities’ who forcibly sent them to Aston Hall.

One thing that interested me was why Aston Hall and Kenneth Milner were the focus of media reports when Denbigh and Gwynne and Dafydd weren’t, because the cases were very similar, although I’m fairly sure that the abuses at Denbigh were worse. I’m now wondering why, when the abuses at Aston Hall did become public, that no-one screamed COHSE AND UNISON ARE UP TO THEIR EYEBALLS IN THIS. Or indeed John Hume, remember the name!

I have been intending to blog about John Hume’s ‘interest’ in mental health for a while now, but I had no idea about this association of Hume’s…

John Hume (born 18 January 1937) is an Irish former politician from Derry, N Ireland. Hume was a founding member of the Social Democratic and Labour Party, and was co-recipient of the 1998 Nobel Peace Prize, with David Trimble.

Hume was the Leader of the Social Democratic and Labour Party (SDLP), a position he held from 1979 until 2001. Hume has served as a n MEP and a Member of the UK Parliament, as well as a member of the Northern Ireland Assembly.

Hume is regarded as one of the most important figures in the recent political history of Ireland and one of the architects of the Northern Ireland peace process. Hume is also a recipient of the Gandhi Peace Prize and the Martin Luther King Award, the only recipient of the three major peace awards. In 2010 Hume was named “Ireland’s Greatest” in a public poll by Irish national broadcaster RTÉ to find the greatest person in Ireland’s history. In 2012, Pope Benedict XVI made Hume a Knight Commander of the Papal Order of St. Gregory the Great.

John Hume was born in Derry with an Irish Catholic background. His great-grandfather was a Presbyterian immigrant into County Donegal from Scotland. Hume was a student at St. Columb’s College and at St. Patrick’s College,  Maynooth, the leading Catholic seminary in Ireland and a recognised college of the National University of Ireland, where he intended to study for the priesthood. Among his teachers was the future Tomás Cardinal Ó Fiaich, a future Primate of All Ireland.

Hume did not complete his clerical studies but did obtain an M.A degree from the college and then returned home to his native city and became a teacher. Hume was a founding member of the Credit Union movement in the city and was chair of the University for Derry Committee in 1965.

Hume became a leading figure in the civil rights movement in the late 1960s along with people such as Hugh Logue. Hume was prominent in the unsuccessful fight to have Northern Ireland’s second university established in Derry in the mid-sixties. After this campaign, John Hume went on to be a prominent figure in the Derry Citizens’ Action Committee. The DCAC was set up in the wake of 5 October march through Derry which had caused so much attention to be drawn towards the situation in N Ireland. The purpose of the DCAC was to make use of the publicity surrounding recent events to bring to light grievances in Derry that had been suppressed by the Unionist Government for years. The DCAC, unlike Northern Ireland Civil Rights Association (NICRA), however, was aimed specifically at a local campaign, improving the situation in Derry for all and maintaining a peaceful stance. The committee also had a Stewards Association that was there to prevent any violence at marches or sit-downs.

Hume was a founder member of Derry Credit Union. At the age of 27, he became the youngest ever President of the Irish League of Credit Unions. He served as President, 1964-68.

NOTES: There were some patients in the North Wales Hospital who were from N Ireland and Ireland, for no understandable reason. Gang members such as Ioan Bowen Rees, Delyth Prys and Meri Huws have much contact with people in Ireland because of their alleged shared interest in minority language matters… See previous posts.

Well that went well didn’t it:

It was Colm who led Cohse’s negotiations with the National and Local Government Officers’ Association (Nalgo) and the National Union of Public Employees (Nupe) to create the single union that is Unison. Colm ensured that the Cohse ethos and traditions were at the heart of the new union.

See the source image

Once Colm, digging in against Nalgo and Nupe, was asked by Dave Prentis (now Unison general secretary) to give the intellectual argument behind Cohse’s position. “You want the intellectual argument?” retorted Colm. “I will give you the intellectual argument. It is this: we are not bloody well having it. Full stop! Is that intellectual enough for you?”

See the source image

“Do you want the intellectual argument?” is now a Unison catchphrase. At the merger in 1993, Colm became a deputy general secretary of Unison.

See the source image

Born in County Derry, Colm was educated (alongside John Hume) at St Columb’s College. He became a registered mental nurse at Purdysburn hospital, Belfast, and a registered nurse for learning difficulties at Darenth Park hospital, Kent. He began nursing in England in the later 1950s and his final posting was as a charge nurse at Aston Hall hospital. Then, in 1964, he became a Cohse regional secretary.

In 1994 Colm retired,

working on for the Labour Party, as a school governor and at the local Citizens’ Advice Bureau.

1994: Matt Arnold, former Head of Bryn Estyn, died from an ‘unidentified blood disease’, four days later the trial of his close friend and colleague Peter Howarth went on trial for the sexual abuse of boys in care in north Wales, John Smith died, Margaret Beckett and her caravan FROM DERBYSHIRE became the interim Leader of the Labour Party before Miranda ascended the throne. The Beat of Bolsover was also a Derbyshire MP, the Beast who had been at Ruskin College, as had Prezza, at the same time as Matt Arnold and Peter Howarth. Wedgie Benn served as a Derbyshire MP, , after heaven and earth were moved to get Eric Varley out of Chesterfield and Wedgie Benn in when the Gang really needed Wedgie Benn there in March 1984. When Wedgie Been contested Denis Healey for the Deputy Leadership of the Labour Party in Sept 1981, NUPE were among Wedgie Benn’s most enthusiastic supporters…

Wedgie Benn had served as the MP for Bristol South East, Aug 1963-June 1983. He’ll have known about the bunfight between my grandfather and Edward du Cann. I had certainly heard all about Wedgie Benn, he was THE Bogeyman to the Somerset Tories…

On 4 Nov 1994, Dafydd obtained his injunction against F and I from Liverpool High Court on the basis of no more evidence than, that some months previously, F had blown a raspberry down the phone at him.

Dafydd contacted the MDU to begin to put steps in place re a High Court injunction

See the source image

days after we met with the Mental Health Act Commissioners and told them that Dafydd was sexually abusing patients and that serious complaints were not being investigated. Our complaint was never investigated, although an exchange of letters between the MHAC and the Gwynedd Community Health Trust followed with regard to my ‘care’ and the danger that I presented to the lives of Dafydd and all other NHS docs. See post ‘The Banality of Evil’.

My post ‘Now Then…’ details the wrongdoing of Prof Geoffrey Chamberlain and others at St George’s Hospital Medical School; the research fraud that Chamberlain and his colleague Malcolm Pearce perpetrated in 1994 which would have been history-making had it not been rapidly exposed correlates exactly with events in north Wales. Chamberlain and Pearce published impressive nonsense in the ‘British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology’ (Chamberlain was the Editor) very soon after F and I met with the MHAC and raised concerns with them.

Chamberlain personally knew members of the Gang and grew up in Cardiff; his father was Secretary to the Lord Mayor of Cardiff. The Dean of St George’s at the time – who was on board with the  research fraud and the ring at St George’s – was William Asscher, who until 1988 held senior roles in Cardiff University and he knew the Gang as well. Asscher had homes in London as well as in south Wales.

Furthermore, Lucille Hughes was part of the senior management of the CAB at a national level.

And he kept in touch with Irish events.

You bet that Colm kept in touch.

Six years ago, he developed symptoms of what was later diagnosed as motor neurone disease.

Notes: Tessa Jowell – died, brain tumour; Mo Mowlam – died, brain tumour; Mo’s husband – died, not that long after Mo…


When I look back on my friend’s life [Colm’s], it will be that time which I will find inspirational. Devoid of bitterness, he never complained; always cheerful, he demonstrated the courage that many of us could not. Although almost completely paralysed,

See the source image

he continued to get to the theatre with his wife, and to the pub with his sons. We shared many a bottle of red wine – and the world was invariably put to rights. Whether with ministers, civil servants, the Duchess of York (who does much work around motor neurone disease)

Fergie knows nothing about MND but she’ll be a source of good PR. Well perhaps not, that particular brainwave might have backfired.

or a pub acquaintance, Colm was completely at ease.

[Colm] is survived by his wife Lila, their daughter and two sons.

Who will be keeping their gobs tightly closed if they want to stay alive.


To return to Colm’s Comrade, Roger Poole: His retirement was followed by the Parades Commission appointment in Northern Ireland, where his capacity to build trust and understand what might be acceptable to different groups was put to the test. He failed to get co-operation from the Orange Order, but his period in office was marked by strikingly more peaceful marching seasons. He had characteristic success in encouraging local groups to make arrangements between themselves. He claimed that he had enjoyed his time immeasurably.

See the source image

His abilities remained in demand, with a string of industrial troubleshooting appointments. He spent patient months working on the highly charged reorganisation of working practices at Royal Mail. He was called on to adjudicate over Remploy’s plans to close factories employing disabled people

See the source image

The closure of Remploy’s factories was pushed through on the wishes of New Labour Gov’ts backed up by the likes of Sue Sayer, a Service Users Spokesperson who has made a good living in paid roles with charidees and Gov’t funded bodies. Those employed in the Remploy factories said loudly and clearly that they liked their jobs, they had worked there for years and they would never get another job if the Remploy factories closed down. Sue Sayer and New Labour told the Remploy employees that they didn’t Understand Present Policy and that they would be better off Included than in the ghettoes of Remploy. The Remploy factories were shut and every analysis conducted since then has showed that the former Remploy workers never again secured employment as stable and well-paid as Remploy offered them.

There was a Remploy establishment of some sort in Wrexham. There are now other opportunities for Empowered Service Users and the Disabled in that area; they are with Dafydd’s charidee CAIS. The ‘work placements’ are low paid, short term and the ‘training’ offers no more than training in the sort of jobs that don’t need any more training than two weeks on the job. Such as the CAIS ‘catering industry’ training, in a portacabin near Llandudno that serves as a café. CAIS have received huge amounts of funding from the DWP for providing those ‘work placements’. See previous posts eg. ‘Another Scam Brought To You By CAIS’.

Sue Sayer (see previous posts) did not lose her job when Remploy closed.

and the train drivers’ union Aslef’s embarrassment when it suspended its leaders after a brawl at a union barbecue. He was a visiting lecturer at Warwick University.

Gwynne and Dafydd’s umbrella in Gov’t Richard Crossman was the constituency MP for Warwick University (which is in Coventry) for decades. Crossman was a good friends of the then VC of Warwick Lord Jack Butterworth. In the early 1970s Richard Crossman and Wilson’s Gov’t found themselves in a difficult position when a group of Warwick students held the Warwick Events, during which the students occupied the Registry and found secret files that Jack had kept on the political activities and evidence that Jack had been doing deals that he shouldn’t have with industrialists in the UK and the US. Two of the students who held the Events were Merfyn and his friend the Philanderer (see ‘Anthem For Doomed Youth’); the Philanderer was years later denied a peerage by Miranda for not assisting a gang of sex offenders like the rest of Miranda’s Cabinet had.

E.P. Thompson, one of the second homers at Croesor (see post ‘Captain Swing and His Crew’), also played a major role in the Events and later based his book ‘Warwick University Ltd’ on the dirt that the Events had uncovered. Jack Butterworth had plenty links with the Gang, as did his wife, Lady Doris. Lady Doris held a senior role in the Royal College of Midwives, although she wasn’t an Angel herself.

See previous posts for info on the Butterworths and the Warwick Events.

Poole is survived by Bernice, his son, Jason, daughter, Jessica, and three granddaughters, Lexus, Megan and Bethany.


Martin Adeney, who wrote this obituary ‘has had a privileged insight into British industry and politics for over forty years on both sides of the media. Reporting for The Guardian in the ’60s and ’70s, his specialisms included community affairs and industrial relations, and assignments in former imperial possessions in Asia.

‘The Guardian’ was written by and for those we know and love who could have split the beans on the Gang but they were mates with those using their services.

See the source image

See previous posts for details of Peter Preston, Editor of ‘The Guardian’:

See the source image

Peter Preston maxed out on his many contacts with the Gang by launching ‘Guardian Society. a supplement aimed at the health and social care sector; the ailing coffers of ‘The Guardian’ benefited from the advertising revenue from ‘Guardian Society’. The Gang and their partner rings placed expensive adverts for senior staff, to accompany the rose-tinted accounts of Social Work Practice. Take a look at old issues, those we know and love are all in there, Preston knew exactly who was using his organ as a PR vehicle. Brown and me wondered for years ‘Why have none of these people mentioned what we know is happening at Denbigh??’

It was ‘The Guardian’ who libelled Graham Day, the senior sociologist at UCNW in the 1990s when the Gang launched their attack on Graham. Merfyn’s late wife Nerys was caught in the crossfire.  See ‘Badlands’ and ‘The Wizard War’. Those attacked and damaged by ‘The Guardian’ as a result of that saga had impeccable liberal credentials. The beneficiaries were a gang of sex offenders and their customers, including Tories whom ‘The Guardian’ claimed to despise.

Nerys gained another black mark against her name when she wrote a piece for ‘Prospect’ magazine raising her concerns re sexual misconduct towards students at Bangor University on the part of staff.

A few interesting facts about Peter Preston: he grew up in Leicestershire, worked on the Liverpool Daily Post as a young journo, a few years after Dafydd had qualified as a Top Doc, including when the Profumo Affair broke. Preston was on the scene for Swinging Liverpool with the Beatles, Cilla etc… Peter Preston was a graduate of St John’s College, Oxford; think Edward du Cann, Kingsley Amis, John Betjeman, Sir Idwal Pugh and other allies of Gwynne and Dafydd. Miranda is an alumnus of St John’s College, Oxford…

Peter Preston was appointed as Editor of ‘The Guardian’ in 1975. He remained in post until 1995, when loyal long-serving Peter decided that he needed a change. In 1995 Ronnie Waterhouse and Insiders knew that there was going to be a Public Inquiry into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal, although Home Secretary Michael Howard – who had chewed up Mary Wynch and spat her out but without ‘The Guardian’ saying a word not long before – and The Hague hadn’t told the plebs.

From 1977 to 1978 [Michael Adeney] was industrial correspondent of the Sunday Telegraph

Perry Worsthorne was Associate Editor at the time:

Peregrine Worsthorne appearing on "After Dark", 21 October 1989.jpg

Perry went to Stowe School where he had alleged that he was ‘seduced by’ George Melly. Melly was abusing kids but never a word was published; F discovered that Melly offered an underaged boy in Bangor money to have sex with him. F was rash enough to tell those who help about that… Melly had a house in the Brecon area and was revered in jazz circles. Think Dannie Abse (see post ‘O Jones, O Jones’), Eric Hobsbawm et al, they loved jazz. As do some people who are Not Of The Gang of course, but Dannie and Hobsbawm knew about the sleazy jazz contingent as discussed in previous posts. Ken Clarke and Prezza are two more big jazz fans.

Perry is married to Lucinda Lambton, daughter of Lord Lambton, the Tory Minister who was forced to resign from the Grocer’s Gov’t over a prostitues n drugs scandal. Lord Lambton defended himself when the pompous old hypocrite Robin Day (Waterhouse’s close friend) tried to shame him on TV and I have always admired Lambton for that. However, Lambton was linked to Gwynne and Dafydd’s partner ring in the North East that Lord John Walton was running. I have no idea whether Lambton had the slightest interest in under-aged sex workers, the problem will have been that his acquaintance with Dafydd’s Gang will have been used to maximum benefit by the Gang. There’ll have been bribery and blackmail everywhere; Lord Lambton’s activities spanned the North East and Chelsea. He might have cheerfully told Robin Day ‘I like a bit of variety, don’t you?’ and not given a stuff about being caught in bed smoking a joint with two sex workers, but John Walton will have been knocking at Lord Lambton’s door in 1984 explaining that there’s two young lefties who have told Wicked Lies [shurely shome mishtake? – Ed] about Nice Doctor Gwynne in north Wales and Ooh what will happen if anyone believes them?

That is what happened isn’t it Perry? I expect that Bill Deedes, Denis and Thatch were all consulted and of course Tom King, John Biffen et al…

See post ‘Shurely Shome Mishtake?’ and others for info on Bill, Perry, Lord Lambton etc.

before joining BBC TV, where he became its first industrial editor.

He planned and presented daily news coverage and made films for programmes like Newsnight and The Money Programme over a decade in which industrial relations was at the top of the political agenda.

See the source image

The Gang’s immediate network had many tentacles reaching into the BBC. Think ‘Panorama’ with Waterhouse’s close friend Robin Day and Jim Callaghan’s daughter Margaret Jay (who’s first husband Peter Jay was a good mate of Dr Death), also Elwyn Parry who grew up in Denbighshire. Then there was Huw Wheldon who went to Friar’s School in Bangor and wielded influence at UCNW (as well as at the LSE, an institution colonised by Richard Crossman’s friends), Attenborough, who’s dad was Principal of what became Leicester University, Esther, Savile etc…

Members of the Gang also sat on the BBC Board of Guv’nors. Gwynne and Dafydd’s mate Lord Charles Hill aka Charlie Corkscrew of the BMA Who Helped Nye Establish the NHS (Charlie told Nye that the Top Docs wouldn’t work in the NHS unless he gave them a great deal of money, promised that they could dictate their own pay and conditions and ensured that GPs remained self-employed), was appointed Chair of the BBC by Harold Wilson and that certainly helped Savile and the ring at the BBC. The Rev Alwyn Roberts, PVC of UCNW, who was also a Gwynedd County Councillor was a Guv’nor of the BBC… See previous posts.

In 1989, he moved to Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI), then the UK’s largest manufacturing company with a worldwide spread of activities. He became vice-president of public affairs before establishing his own consultancy in 2000.

His experience is reflected in three books: The Miners’ Strike, 1984–85: Loss without Limit (with John Lloyd), The Motor Makers: The Turbulent History of Britain’s Car Industry and Nuffield: A Biography, a life of the industrial magnate and charitable benefactor Lord Nuffield.

He contributes to The Guardian’s obituary columns and the Dictionary of National Biography.

When ‘The Guardian’ launched it’s libellous assault in 1990s on Graham Day, the UCNW senior sociologist who had dared piss the Gang off (see post ‘Badlands’ and ‘The Wizard War’), one of Graham’s biggest tormenters within UNCW was the criminologist Roy King. Roy knew a lot about that Gang; he subsequently bagged a Chair at Cambridge. See previous posts.


The Indie also published an obituary for Roger Poole:

Roger Poole, who has died of cancer, became a hero of the trade union movement in 1989 when he led the ambulance workers in a dispute which gained the support and sympathy of public and press and was one of the few successful strikes during the Margaret Thatcher era

It was the ambulance service in north Wales that took the unlawfully abducted victims of the Gang to Denbigh under cover of darkness as described in previous posts. Victims were always wrongfully arrested, but police cars constantly arriving at Denbigh would have been obvious; ambulances suggested that healthcare was the order of the day.

Previous posts discussed the violent domestic abuser who worked as an ambulanceman in north Wales who’s first wife Went Mad, was Taken To Denbigh and then after she was released and was being driven home by her ambulanceman husband, Went Mad In The Car, Overpowered Him and Escaped. She was found drowned on Denbigh moors hours later. He remarried and I got to know his wife, after she had divorced him; she told me that she was certain that he’d killed his first wife. He also terrorised his second wife’s young adult daughter who ended up in the Hergest Unit and he was a neighbour of F’s at one point. F was taken to Ysbyty Gwynedd with breathing difficulties in 1990/91 and the Caring Ambulanceman told F that next time he’d let him die because he hated fucking hippies and nutters.

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

I took piss out of Dafydd during that 1989/90 ambulance strike; I asked him how he would transport his abducted victims to Denbigh now that the ambulancemen were on strike. Dafydd quipped that they’d always be able to find an ambulance if they needed one. Dafydd’s confidence with regard to that will not have been misplaced.

Young, dynamic, smartly dressed – he brought a new suit for the dispute –

and with a soft Bristolian burr and a new haircut,

With a quiff, but not such an impressive quiff as that sported by the CEO of the NW Wales NHS Trust Martin Jones some decades later when Martin was continuing Poole’s good work in concealing the same gang of sex offenders. When I was working at Bangor University – with Criminologists no less – we conducted our Mental State Assessments of Martin by the size of his quiff and the gaudiness of his cufflinks.

Martin with a new haircut after he realised that he was not going to be escorted from his office in handcuffs, although I had sent evidence of his lawbreaking to Edwina Hart; Martin had good reason to feel confident, Edwina cooked up a deal with the NHS trade unions, enabling Martin to be given a new Executive Position, guaranteed for five years:

Once Martin became Director of Workforce, the Betsi Board found it impossible to recruit virtually any staff at all, as opposed to the prevailing situation in previous years ie. nearly impossible to recruit good staff.

Martin was a Lucky Winner in Edwina’s NHS Bingo in 2008; the last that I heard, Martin had been appointed as Head of NHS Wales Complaints and Investigations.

Poole became the public face of the health unions, in stark contrast to the look of past union leaders, scoring points against the rather tired-looking, sometimes seemingly confused Health Secretary of the time, Kenneth Clarke. In victory he spoke of the settlement as “driving a coach and horses” through Government pay policy, and became runner-up to the Today programme’s Man of the Year.

In 1988-89 when I was working at Surrey University in a research team led by Vincent Marks, brother of John Marks, the Chairman of the BMA, while Ken was doing battle with the BMA, I was used as the bargaining chip. Ken and John Marks called a stalemate in the end because they were both colluding with the same very serious criminality. I was the one who suffered; at the time, the BMA were providing Tony Francis and the Gang with advice re resisting any investigation into my complaints and framing me for serious offences. Virginia Bottomley was Ken’s junior Minister before becoming Health Secretary herself and what a mess she and Ken made (see ‘The Evolution Of A Drugs Baron?’)…

Virginia studied at the LSE when Crossman’s mates ran the place and is a former psychiatric social worker; she has been many other things, including a Director of BUPA. Ginny’s daughter is a London-based Top Doc who has worked for BUPA. See previous posts. Ginny has numerous relatives who have also supported the Gang, including her Auntie Peggy Jay.

See eg. ‘Oh Lordy! It’s CR UK’, ‘Reports Of Death Were Greatly Exaggerated’ and ‘Apocalypse Now’, as well as other posts for details of the research fraud, plagiarism etc with which Vincent Marks and his colleagues were involved; Peter Maguire, one of Tony Francis’s psychiatrist mates from Manchester University, was given funding by the CRC to join the party…

Lord Chief Justice Peter Taylor lived at Guildford.

Poole was born in Bristol, his father a decorator and trade unionist.
Bristol University – D.G.E. Wood trained there- was a hub facilitating organised abuse in the West Country. From the late 1960s, that was masterminded by colleagues of the Bristol crowd at the London Hospital, which was facilitating Dafydd’s partner ring in the East End. Professor Sir John Ellis, Dr Anthony Jackson and Prof Clifford Wilson at the London Hospital were given responsibility for medical postgrad training across all the London hospitals and their role involved organising placements for junior docs across the whole of the south of England, including in the West Country.
Two of the main men in the network were Bristol University Top Docs paediatricians Profs Neville Butler and David Baum. Butler was running huge national surveys/research programmes and had access to the personal data of thousands of families and children without their knowledge or consent. Butler shared this with others facilitating abuse. The London Hospital gang’s contact in Taunton was Dr Brian Wykeham Webb.
See previous posts eg. ‘Oliver’s Army’ and ‘The Logic of Medicine’.
Others involved from the London Hospital were: Sir William Asscher, who relocated to Cardiff and subsequently reached a senior level there  – where he assisted Gwynne, Dafydd, George Thomas etc – before returning to London as Dean of St George’s in 1988, after Ollie Brooke caused major embarrassment; Geoffrey Chamberlain’s mate Wendy Savage, who worked at the London Hospital for years; and Lord Bob Winston, who trained at the London, but found fame and fortune at Hammersmith.
After Asscher relocated to St George’s, he kept his home in Sister Hutt’s territory in the Vale of Glamorgan and returned to live there full-time after he retired from St George’s. Chamberlain moved to Edwina Hart’s territory of the Gower after he retired from the NHS, just in time for the fall-out after the Waterhouse Report; Chamberlain was given a retirement number as a lecturer at Swansea University (see ‘Now Then…’).
Wendy Savage was married to a jazz musician. I used to wonder why everyone went on about that but it is becoming clear now in the light of the drug use and organised abuse in some jazz circles.
[Poole] showed an early inclination to taking on the authorities at his rugby union-playing school, Ashton Gate, successfully demanding that a football pitch be installed. Leaving at 15 without qualifications, he eventually secured a job at a local laboratory then worked as a motor mechanic and as a security officer. In 1970 Poole and his new wife Berenice spent their honeymoon, along with friends, armed with a CBI grant to promote British goods…
He returned to become an official of the National Union of Public Employees, the union responsible for organising the lower-paid, usually manual workers in the NHS and in local government.
They tended to be the bottom feeders who actually got their hands dirty, giving kids in care a thump (or far worse), failing to protect them from predators. Furthermore, they also knew what people in High Places were concealing and that often reaps rewards if one is an uneducated thug.

Here is Nye and Bickerstaff’s old mucker David Williams, former Assistant to the Royal Lobotomist, manhandling some sort of Award, circa 1980, just as Mary Wynch finally got out of Denbigh:
There’ll have been Awards for many in 1980. That was the year that I applied to UCNW as well, only to have my details accessed by the Gang via the UCCA system.
His understanding of the problems workers faced, along with a natural ability to argue succinctly on their behalf, led to his becoming assistant general secretary.
No, Poole’s collusion with serious organised crime as Alan Fisher’s Deputy  (see post ‘More Antonin Artaud’) was what led to Poole becoming Assistant General Secretary.
The union played a militant role during the winter of discontent and was one of those blamed for the anti-union feeling that led to the Tory landslide of 1979, enabling Thatcher to put into action most of her plans aimed at breaking the power of the unions.
If the unions hadn’t have allowed themselves to be blackmailed repeatedly by Thatch over Dafydd and Gwynne and the Westminster Paedophile Ring, Thatch could never have destroyed them. But then Thatch had assistance from the security services, including those who were er running the ring and plants in the unions.
Meet Lord Jack Jones:

But Poole, with a more conciliatory approach, took on board lessons learned from unsuccessful disputes when he became spokesman and chief negotiator for the group of five unions that combined to take industrial action in 1989 on behalf of the ambulance staff, who wanted a £20-a-week pay increase and a formula linking pay to inflation. “The public face of unions is the big set-piece confrontation,” he observed, “and the unions put this across badly. Scargill and Thatcher were opposite sides of the same coin. I don’t think you can operate like that.”

See the source image

The dispute started as an overtime ban then escalated to lock-outs, occupations and arrangements for emergency cover; the Government responded by bringing in “Green Goddess” army ambulances. But whereas in the past the public might not have shown much support, this time it was different: the unions worked closely together as the government and health service employers began to differ on how they should approach the dispute.

The dispute lasted nearly six months and ended with a settlement that gave ambulance staff a pay rise of 16.9 per cent and also led to a new understanding and recognition of what ambulance staff work entailed, laying down the foundations for the transformation of ambulance workers into even more highly skilled paramedics.

In reality, Ken Clarke achieved a great deal in the face of industrial action involving Poole and his mates. At one point, Clarke successfully split COHSE by offering members who were qualified Angels a substantially bigger pay rise than staff who were unqualified. The comrades of COHSE took the bait, the Qualified Angels grabbed the dosh, the others were left with bugger all and the strike collapsed. Lord Hector MacKenzie, the General Secretary of COHSE who succeeded David Williams as Gen Sec, colluded with Ken over that.

Hector was appointed to a senior role on the Whitley Council, the loathed body that negotiated pay rates for NHS staff who were not Top docs or Angels. Angels were paid badly until the Gov’t wanted to bribe them and they were then removed from Whitley negotiations; their pay soared overnight. All other NHS professions under Whitley remained appallingly badly paid, which is why there was such a shortage of NHS lab technicians, pharmacists, medical physicists… There was nothing said in the media although by the 1980s there was a real crisis.

Hector was elevated to the Whitley Council as a reward for being a Gov’t poodle. Hector had even more bargaining power than David Williams; David knew about Gwynne, but Hector had worked as a psych Angel in Cumbria and had found out about whatever it was that Willie Whitelaw was doing up there… So Hector became Lord Hector.

See previous posts for info on Hector and the Whitley Council.

Ambulance workers in Wales are now Paramedics who strut around in green boiler suits. It has not improved matters. The Welsh Ambulance Service is one of the most troubled of Wales’s Services, there has been a constant stream of scandal, complaint and patient deaths. The is such serious corruption and workplace bullying in the Welsh Ambulance Service that some years ago, the Service famously broke a series of Chief Execs; four or five CEOs in sequence just gave up and left.

Some 10 ago, Gordon Grant, a Welsh Ambulance Service Senior Manager beat up his mistress – he was married to someone else at the time – and smashed up her house. She was a Senior Manager in the Welsh Ambulance Service as well. The assault was covered up and the victim was housed in an expensive hotel until her house was repaired, everything paid for by the Welsh Ambulance Service. Gordon then received promotion and relocated to the Scottish Ambulance Service.

See the source image

Gordon was subsequently jailed for a violent attack on his wife, involving an axe. Gordon had responsibility for the Service’s Violence and Aggression Policy at the time.

When he worked for the Welsh Ambulance Service, Gordon Grant was friends with Lyn Meadows, his line manager. Meadows was heard to say of Gordon, ‘Gordon’s a bastard but he’s my bastard’. My response was to laugh at the Mafia techniques of the managers of the Welsh Ambulance Service until I saw the photos of the woman whom Gordon attacked and then read about his activities when he relocated to Scotland.

Lyn Meadows is now a member of the Betsi Board.

See the source image

Gordon’s former mistress who was seriously injured by him is unqualified but got into the Ambulance Service when she left school because her father was an ambulanceman. Her mother was a Secretary for Gwynedd Social Services and worked with Lucille Hughes. When she was 17 and driving illegally, the future manager of the Ambulance Service knocked over and killed an elderly man in Bontnewydd. There were no serious consequences for her because ‘a member of the family was senior in legal circles in Wales’. I also suspect that her dad transporting the abducted victims of a sex abuse gang under cover of darkness to be lobotomised might have been a powerful bargaining chip as well…

Poole stayed with Nupe, and in 1993 helped to negotiate the merger with Nalgo, which represented local-authority white-collar staff, and the other health union, Cohse. He became an Assistant General Secretary of the resulting union, Unison.

After that merger, Roger Poole and St Rodney Bickerstaffe found themselves with a great deal of political muscle. St Rodney was in post as General Secretary of UNISON just in time for The Hague’s announcement that the would be a Public Inquiry into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. Ronnie Waterhouse knew that he’d be the Chair of that Inquiry months before The Hague stated that there would be one (see ‘Heart of Darkness’), so no doubt St Rodney knew that it would be held as well.

See the source image

St Rodney was elected as Gen Sec of UNISON in November 1995, taking office on 28 February 1996. Dafydd’s bent mate, Home Office Drug’s Branch mandarin Bing Spear, died on 9 July 1995, Peter Morrison was found dead in his house on 13 July 1995. Brown was forced out of his job at Aston University in July 1995.

Someone saw an opportunity:

Here he is with two friends, when they all saw another opportunity years later:

See the source image

When The Hague saw his opportunity at the Welsh Office, the Gang were forging documentation, perjuring themselves, ordering other people to perjure themselves, the lot… The Hague will have known about that, the misconduct was receiving the rubber stamp of approval from the very top… See previous posts, including ‘A Solicitor’s Letter From North East Wales MIND’ and ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’.

“His negotiating and communicating skills helped countless thousands in the NHS and in public services,” said Rodney Bickerstaffe, General Secretary of Nupe and later of Unison. “He believed in conciliation.”

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

Poole continued to work hard for those he felt needed most protection, work he described as being “the private face of trade unionism”.

In 1996 he warned employers that they were now responsible for the mental as well as physical health of their employees following a court case which saw a large award to an employee who had suffered from several breakdowns while working in local government.

The Hague announced in May 1996 that there would be a Public Inquiry into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. In the autumn of 1996, The Hague told the House that Ronald Waterhouse would Chair the Inquiry.

Shortly after The Hague announced that there would be an Inquiry held, F and I were arrested on the basis of the perjury of an Angel with the Arfon CMHT, Bridget Lloyd. We were cleared in early 1997, days after Ronnie opened the Inquiry. The Gwynedd Community Health Trust refused to apologise to us and stated that we would still be treated as Dangerous Patients who had Threatened Bridget Lloyd. See previous posts.

See the source image

Bridget Lloyd had been the Senior Angel on duty who had refused to let me leave Ysbyty Gwynedd when Jackie Brandt had unlawfully detained me in autumn 1986. Lloyd insisted that I could not leave until I had Seen Dafydd. I knew nothing about Dafydd but didn’t want to ‘see’ any of them after I had been threatened and unlawfully imprisoned. Lloyd said that Only Dafydd Could Give Me Permission To Leave. She then left me alone in a room with Dafydd who tried to Talk Sex and threatened me with arrest when I asked him what the hell he thought that he was doing.

See the source image

Thus after F and I were cleared in Jan 1997 – there was no investigation into Lloyd’s perjury – we remained under the ‘care’ of the Forensic Team, our most regular contact being a Senior Forensic Angel Jackie Ehlen.

Not long after I had been unlawfully detained in the autumn of 1986, a young woman called Dorothy Griffiths was found dead on the same ward on which I had been imprisoned by Lloyd etc. Jackie Ehlen was the Senior Angel on duty when Dorothy died, rather than Bridget. My post ‘Inside Information About A Hergest Unit Death’ details what I know about Dorothy’s death…

To summarise, Jackie Ehlen, the junior doc on duty Colin Flood and Sadie Francis, all lied at the inquest. The coroner noted that their evidence was inconsistent and none of it was consistent with the path lab report on Dorothy’s body, but he refused to follow it up. The coroner simply summed up by saying that Dorothy had drowned in the bath after locking the door and it was therefore not a good idea for psych wards to have lockable bathroom doors. Previous posts have discussed how in the Bryn Golau Peep Show at Denbigh, if patients wanted to use the only bath on the ward, Angels would constantly walk in and offer to ‘help you have a bath’.

I’ll wait for you to leave a comment on the blog then Brangelina, when you have two minutes in between collecting babies from Hot Countries.


Sadie Francis stated at Dorothy’s inquest that Dorothy would never have died if her parents had allowed her to be Cared For at Denbigh. Dorothy had been in Denbigh before and her parents said ‘No way, not again’, but Sadie didn’t explain why…

See the source image

The inquest was told that a ‘male nurse’ had broken the bathroom door down and found Dorothy dead. Yet the Male Nurse was never called to give evidence or named. It was Jeff. Dorothy’s parents told me. They also told me that the first they knew of Dorothy’s death was ‘two hospital managers’ calling at their house who were ‘awful, absolutely dreadful’. Hours later, Sadie arrived and apologised, saying that it would not have happened if she had been there at the time. Dorothy’s parents told me that Sadie ‘was good, really good’. Sadie has been very ‘good’ to me on occasions, but I now have the records that she completed at the same time as she was being so pleasant to me personally. On some of those occasions, she was demanding that I should be arrested. I know that on one occasion, Sadie told me that I was welcome to phone her, but she had the phone wired up to ‘catch’ me if I did…

Jeff left north Wales during the Waterhouse Inquiry, after his wife died in the Care of Ysbyty Gwynedd and he received death threats from ‘one of his addict patients’ and had to go into a safe house. At the time, Jeff was working for the Anglesey Drugs Team, of which Dafydd pulled the strings. Jeff departed from the region not long after F and I were cleared after Bridget Lloyd perjured herself in 1996 on the orders of more senior members of the Gang in the attempt to have us fitted up.

In November 2005, Poole, newly retired, was appointed to the Northern Ireland Parades Commission, becoming its chairman, a position he held until 2009. During that time he did much to initiate rapprochement among local groups. Peter Hain, the Northern Ireland Secretary who appointed him, said: “No one lost dignity and principles. Roger persuaded people to find solutions, sometimes without them realising that they had done so.”

Dafydd, being all things to all men, infiltrated Irish Republican activist groups in the 1950s, also worked with the Top Docs who were advising on the torture of interns in N Ireland in the 1970s and of course helped facilit

The finger points at Dafydd

as well as quite a few of Peter Hain’s mates in the AAM, who were also mates with Dafydd or those in Gwynne and Dafydd’s network eg. David Ennals, John Ennals, Mervyn Susser, Zena Stein, Ruth First, Joe Slovo, Janey Buchan and many more as discussed in previous posts.

I received my medical records in thePhD in the autumn of 2005. Miranda et al were trying to force Merfyn Jones out of his role as VC of Bangor University at the time.

At the beginning of 2004, charges of ‘threatening to kill’ that had hung over my head for nearly two years and resulted in me losing my job and home were withdrawn on the first day of the trial. Dafydd’s mate corrupt judge Huw Daniel seemed to think that he would definitely be sending me to jail after a guilty verdict and was most irate.  Months later, Lady Justice Heather Hallett presided over Mr Bridgy Celeb’s manslaughter trial at Bristol Crown Court. Heather stopped the trial and ordered the jury to acquit. Weeks later Huw Daniel sentenced me to more than 100 hours of community service for telling Alun Davies’s secretary, over the phone, that Davies was a fat idiot. Furthermore, Huw Daniel told the journos in Court lies about my ‘victims’ being Davies’s family, none of whom I have ever met or communicated with. The local press obligingly published Daniel’s lies. See previous posts.

Jack Straw served as Home Secretary, May 1997-June 2001 and David Blunkett succeeded him and served as Home Secretary, June 2001-Dec 2004. Those two would seem to be rather culpable with regard to the huge conspiracy on the part of numerous people – with senior NHS staff leading the pack – to fit me up, then the prosecution of me for a ludicrous offence after the charges were withdrawn on the first day of the trial, just before Heather Hallett stopped the manslaughter trial and ordered the jury at Bristol Crown Court to acquit Mr Bridgy Celeb…

The original phone calls to the police in 2001 demanding that I should be arrested for ‘threatening to kill Alun Davies’ such that he was in immediate fear of his life, were made to the police by Alun Davies who was sitting in the Welsh Assembly at the time with Sister Hutt’s officials and very probably Sister Hutt herself.

I was in a locked ward in the Hergest Unit, about as far away from Sister Hutt’s office in Cardiff as one can get while still remaining in Wales. See previous posts. I was a very long way from Guy’s Hospital with Uncle Harry

and Old London Town as well.

Roger Poole, trade unionist and conciliator: born Bristol 11 July 1946; married 1970 Berenice Peglar (one daughter, one son); died Droitwich 3 July 2015.

An online funeral guide for Roger:

In the year the Berlin Wall came down, Roger Poole, the public face of the 89/90 ambulance dispute, was voted runner-up to Mikhail Gorbachev in the Today programme’s ‘Man of the Year’ contest.

While Thatch and Gorby made friends, everyone worked overtime to conceal Dafydd, Geoffrey Chamberlain, George Thomas, Greville and the murders of witnesses…

The outstanding communications skills of the then Assistant General Secretary of the National Union of Public Employees won, paradoxically, unprecedented popularity for national industrial action in a front-line emergency service. For over six months his deft verbal sparring with the then Health Secretary Ken Clarke and his modern, conciliatory leadership attracted colossal support for the crews well beyond their unions’ natural heartlands. Roger’s campaigning flair was rooted in his deep sense of social justice and equality which pre-dated his 30-year plus career in the trade union movement.

Born in Bristol to Lillian Marguarite and Samuel Martin Poole, Roger was one of three children and grew up in Clifton,

Clifton is the posh bit of Bristol. Bristol University is there, as is Clifton College – John Cleese’s old school – and Bristol’s Top Docs and lawyers.

attending Ashton Park secondary modern school… Roger’s first job was in a laboratory with his father; afterwards he became an apprentice motor mechanic, then a police officer with the Avonmouth Docks Police, where his interest in the trade union movement first began.

The Avon and Somerset Police were famously very corrupt by the late 197os and the Chief Constables were very much part of the problem, particularly Kenneth Steele, who occupied the office, 1974-79 (see previous posts). The Big Wigs of the police corruption seemed to be in the Bristol area. One policeman who grew up in Bridgwater was kicked out of the force for flogging heroin and he maintained that he was scapegoated and the biggest dealers among his former colleagues were still in the force. I was prepared to believe that because I had already witnessed serious threats made to members of the public from corrupt officers based in Taunton. A retired Top Doc from Taunton told someone known to me who had worked with him years before that the big drugs gangs numbered police among them and Top Docs, because his son, a Top Doc, was one of them. This elderly Top Doc was out of his depth and terrified that his son would be killed by his fellow gangsters; his son was a heroin addict himself. I had no idea at the time, but that crew in Taunton and Bristol were part of the Dafydd-Bing Spear- London medical schools crowd who were also facilitating the trafficking rings. Bing Spear appointed one of the most reliable members of his bent team as the Home Office Drugs Branch Inspector for the West Country and Wales region, so Dafydd will have had excellent relationships with the crooks of Somerset and Bristol.

He always claimed that his devotion to the ‘underdog’ was honed by a lifetime’s support of Bristol Rovers FC.

Roger relished a challenge and had a keen eye for a presentational angle.

See the source image

In 1970 he and Bernice spent their honeymoon – with nine other passengers – touring the US and South America on a double decker bus promoting British goods, including Cornish jewellery, chemical toilets and carpets. Under Harold Wilson’s “Backing Britain” initiative, Roger had secured CBI backing for this Summer Holiday style expedition which called in at every embassy and consulate on route but was finally stopped in its tracks in a river in Peru.

It was always quipped that Harold Wilson was a crook, but Wilson was a far greater crook than anyone dared to admit because he ensured that the crooked practices were tied up with the Westminster Paedophile Ring, knowing that made it impossible to stop the practices and put the crooks out of business. That was why the revelations re the Poulson Scandal was only the tip of the iceberg and even those who went to prison – Poulson, T. Dan Smith and Andy Cunningham – didn’t seem to suffer so badly. See previous posts. Poulson, T. Dan Smith, Cunningham et al were running the huge empire in the north of England that was predicated on the ring run by Gwynne’s mate Lord John Walton. Savile was involved as well. Andy Cunningham’s son John became a Labour MP for a constituency in Cumbria – think Willie Whitelaw and Lord Hector MacKenzie – and a leading figure in the Labour Party, who at one point was seen as a potential Labour Party Leader.

Richard Crossman was mates with T. Dan Smith; Crossman was mates with Dom Mintoff, once the PM of Malta, who was also a senior figure in the Maltese Mafia. It was fine by Harold Wilson as long as the press never got hold of the story. Dom Mintoff was also mates with Dafydd’s mate Lady Juliet Bingley, who’s husband Admiral Sir Alec Bingley was one of the most senior Commanders of NATO. The trade unionist Lord Jack Jones was also mates with Mintoff…

So whatever Roger Poole was doing with the CBI under Wilson’s ‘Backing Britain’ carapace will have been dodgy and provided Poole with suitable blackmailing material for future use.

‘I’m Backing Britain’ was a short-lived, lame campaign launched in 1968 which had the support of various people from both the Labour and Tory Parties, although there were detractors from both sides as well. The campaign was fronted by five secretaries from Surrey, who’s role caused an outburst of snobbery from Enoch Powell. Meanwhile the NHS Workers’ Friend and the Windbag’s as well, union baron Clive Jenkins, banged on about the Ruling Class being behind ‘I’m Backing Britain’.

However, the usual suspects saw their opportunity.

On Monday 8 January 1968, Pye Records issued a single, “I’m Backing Britain”, supporting the campaign. Written by Tony Hatch and Jackie Trent, and sung by Bruce Forsyth, All involved in making the single took cuts in their fees or royalties so that the single sold for 5 s instead of the going rate of 7s ​4 12d. However, the song did not make the charts; it sold only 7319 copies.

The most visible manifestation of the campaign was in the Union Flags, which began to be put on shopping bags. Postmaster General Edward Short encouraged the Royal Mail to introduce an “I’m Backing Britain” franking mark, which was used on 84 million letters passing through 125 Post Offices between 9 and 29 February 1968.

Ted Short was married to Battling Barbara Castle who Loved The NHS and Was Determined To Get Rid Of Private Medicine. Battling Babs never advertised her own use of Private Medicine when she and Ted unsuccessfully underwent fertility treatment. Babs only publicised the ludicrous saga, so ludicrous that she walked away from what she realised was fuckwittery when she was an elderly lady. Well Babs couldn’t afford to take on the Top Docs could she, particularly with her being the poster girl for the NHS and Wimmin In Politics. Babs colluded with Gwynne and Dafydd for years and employed an aide when she was at the DHSS, one leftie whippersnapper called Jack Straw, to help her with the task.

I wonder if Babs’s Shameful Secret re that Private Fertility Treatment – Babs later talked about the Fertility Treatment but didn’t mention that she Went Private – was used to great effect whenever the Top Docs wanted anything at all done that was controversial, including expensive fertility treatments on the NHS DESPITE THE LOW SUCCESS RATES?

Bob Edwards, of Steptoe and Edwards and Louise Brown of Bristol, the First Test Tube Baby, was a graduate of UCNW. Remember the name, Bob Edwards!

The ‘I’m Backing Britain’ campaign found expression in the giving of conscience money to the Exchequer, as noted by The Guardian’s Financial Editor William Davis; in the middle of January 1968, it was observed that every postal delivery to the Treasury contained letters offering gifts. If the letter specified that the money was to pay off the Gov’t debt, the funds were paid into the Debt Redemption Fund; otherwise the Consolidated Fund was the beneficiary. Jimmy Savile found his own way to support the campaign by volunteering to work nine days as a hospital porter at Leeds General Infirmary over two months, stating that at his rate of pay, nine days’ work, would have earned him £1,600 (equivalent to £30,000 in 2018).

Popular newspapers backed the campaign enthusiastically and praised the workers behind it. As early as 30 December 1967, the Daily Express ran the headline “Five Girls Britain Can be Proud of” over a picture of the five originators. The Daily Mirror welcomed the spread of the campaign as its lead story on 3 January 1968. A Mirror editorial on 5 January declared that “the patriotic truth about these rule-book dominated trade union sourpusses is that they are incapable of recognising true patriotism when they see it”.

The Economist wrote on 6 January that on hearing of the campaign, “the fashionable response in many sophisticated circles was a giggle”, but it had transformed into “something louder than a grunt of admiration”. Likewise, the Financial Times regarded it as “a beacon of light in an otherwise dismal economic and industrial prospect” but encouraged the diversion of the campaign into opposing absenteeism and restrictive practices as well as encouraging individuals “to identify their efforts with the success or failure of the country as a whole”. A week later, the Economist leader was slightly more wary about the campaign and saw it as a symptom of widespread disenchantment with politics and thinking Britain lucky that “there is no demagogue of sufficient ability around to exploit it”. The New Statesman admitted that “in strictly economic terms”, the campaign to work extra hours made sense, but pointed to some of the oddities of the campaign, including the Birmingham betting shop, which had opened early as a contribution to the production drive, and the Portsmouth workers, who demanded to leave early so they could see a television programme about the scheme.

The campaign took a knock when the London wholesaler Scott Lester ordered thousands of white T shirts on which it screen-printed the “I’m Backing Britain” slogan; the shirts had been made in Portugal. Scott Lester’s marketing director explained that “we just cannot find a British T-shirt which will give us the same quality at a price which will compare” and that the shirts would have to retail at £1 if British sources were used.

The newly appointed Poet Laureate, Cecil Day-Lewis, inaugurated his appointment with a poem entitled “Now and Then” supporting the campaign. It was commissioned by the Daily Mail and appeared on the newspaper’s front page on 5 January. The poem compared Britain’s economic plight in 1968 with the Blitz and ended:

To work then, islanders, as men and women
Members one of another, looking beyond
Mean rules and rivalries towards the dream you could
Make real, of glory, common wealth, and home.

It was the Industrial Society, a nonpartisan body to promote the best use of human resources in commerce and industry, who was asked to set up an organisation to run  the ‘I’m Backing Britain’ campaign. The Society’s Director at the time was John Garnett. The Society appointed Admiral of the Fleet Sir Caspar John (one of Gwynne’s network, as discussed in previous posts) as the campaign’s figurehead. The campaign was handled on a day-to-day basis by Mark Wolfson, the Head of Youth Services for the Industrial Society.

Geoffrey Mark Wolfson (7 April 1934-14 November 2018), known as Mark Wolfson, was the Tory MP for Sevenoaks in Kent, 1979-97. Mark Wolfson was educated at Eton College and Pembroke College, Cambridge. He served in the Royal Navy, 1952-54. After working as a teacher, Wolson was Head of Youth Services at The Industrial Society from 1966 to 1969, leading the I’m Backing Britain campaign. Wolfson became a Director of Hambros Bank in 1973. Wolfson’s successor as the MP for Sevenoaks was Michael Fallon. Wolfson subsequently became Director of Brathay Trust and was appointed OBE in the 2002 New Years Honours, following the Waterhouse Report, which might be salient as I shall explain shortly.

Wolfson’s obituary in the Kent local paper provided further details re Wolfson:

After attending Pembroke College, Cambridge,

Lord Chief Justice Peter Taylor was a graduate of Pembroke College; he was there at either exactly or nearly the same time as Wolfson.

where he was captain of boats and later coaching the winning team for the Boat race, he served in the Royal Navy between 1952 and 1954 before working as a teacher, taking on a position as principal of Brathay Hall in Ambleside from 1962 to 1965. The youth training centre attempted to give young people a broad range of indoor and outdoor skills not normally taught in the classroom. His colleague at the time, Maurice Dybeck, remembers Mr Wolfson as working “tremendously hard” with a real commitment to young people.

Ambleside is on Lake Windermere in Cumbria; Cumbria was the territory of Willie Whitelaw for decades and decades. Wolfson was Principal of Brathay Hall during the Profumo Affair and the aftermath, including the collapse of Macmillan’s Gov’t and the arrival of Alec Douglas-Home as PM. Willie was one of the Ancients who in every role that he occupied concealed the activities of Gwynne, Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring.

Willie was close to Grocer Heath and was the Grocer’s N Ireland Secretary, March 1972-Dec 1973, when Matt Arnold and Peter Howarth arrived at Bryn Estyn and things began Swinging in earnest in the children’s homes of north Wales. Willie’s refusal to stand for the Tory Leadership in 1975 ‘because of his loyalty to’ the Grocer, was a crucial factor in Thatch becoming Leader, once Edward du Cann had been shafted by someone more powerful than my grandfather, but using the allegations of corruption against du Cann that my grandfather had made before du Cann was shafted. See eg. ‘The Milk Street and Other Mafias’.

Willie was Tory Party Chairman, March 1974-Feb 1975. That was when Stuart the spotter for Dafydd’s Gang moved into the house that was the next nearest house to ours…

When Wolfson was teaching at Brathay Hall, Willie was a Whip in Macmillan’s Gov’t and then Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Labour, Lord John Hare and then the Tories’ Chief Whip.

Willie served as Lord President of the Council and thus the visitor to UCNW twice. First, between June 1970 and April 1972, when Willie doubled up as Leader of the Commons. It was during that time that David Ursell was removed as Head of Bryn Estyn that eventually led to the appointment of Matt Arnold who ran an enormous paedophile ring there, but only after Peter Burton, the Head who succeeded Ursell, was killed in a car crash, along with his wife, his son and the Deputy Head of Bryn Estyn. Those deaths and the subsequent arrival at Bryn Estyn of Arnold and his mate Peter Howarth occurred when Willie was N Ireland Secretary concealing the VIP paedophile ring and the associated criminality at the Kincora Boys’ Home. What better training could Willie have had for his role as Thatcher’s Home Secretary, May 1979-June 1983?

Willie’s second go at being Lord President of the Council and visitor to UCNW was between June 1983 and Jan 1988, as the Gang moved in on me and then caused havoc. Willie was Leader of the Lords as the same time.

Willie’s early career post as Parliamentary Secretary to John Hare aka Lord Blakenham provided a rich network of influential people for the Gang to utilise. John Hare colluded with Gwynne and Dafydd; Hare served in the Gov’ts of Macmillan and Douglas-Home, and was Chairman of the Tory Party under Douglas-Home. Viscount John Hare and his extended family of aristocrats on all sides are discussed in previous posts, so I’ll just flag up those who I have been told were put to most use by the Gang re my case.

John Hare’s older brother William, the 5th Earl of Listowel, was a Labour politician. Among his many roles, William served in the Intelligence Corps and in Attlee’s Gov’t in the Burma Office as Secretary of State for India and Burma. William Hare was subsequently Governor General of Ghana, 1957-60. William has descendants who’s influence was put to god use by the Gang… See previous posts…

Hare’s son and heir, Michael Hare, the 2nd Viscount Blakenham, is an environmentalist and was Chair of the RSPB Council, 1982-86. Previous posts and comments have discussed how one of the students who shared our house on Anglesey was given a job with the RSPB after he graduated in 1985 in return for supplying ‘evidence’ about my friend Anne and I being prostitutes. The Gang killed Anne in April 1986.

Michael Hare’s sister Joanna is the US-based clinical psychologist Joanna Breyer. Joanna has a heavy internet presence as a result of her work regarding Children With Cancer. This is the brief biography for Joanna as provided by her publisher, Penguin Random House:

Joanna Breyer was educated at Oxford and Harvard where she got her psychology doctoral degree in 1983. As a psychologist she worked with children with cancer and their families for over 25 years at Dana Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) and Children’s Hospital Boston. She worked in the David B. Perini Quality of Life Clinic for Survivors of Childhood Cancer for over 10 years. She is married to Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer.

As well as Caring For Children With Cancer, Dr Joanna enjoys social events. There is such extensive coverage of Dr Joanna at US Society knees-ups, that I can only scratch the surface here. Readers are encouraged to google Dr Joanna to gain a better idea of the extent of her Caring.

Here’s Dr Joanna with Justice Stephen at the Washington National Opera’s Golden Gala, April 2006:

See the source image

Joanna really maxed out last year when she published her book “When Your Child is Sick”. Unlike the rest of us, when Joanna publishes a book, a rich friend throws a book party attended by other rich women, because we all know that women are more Caring than men and a photo of Dafydd at such a PR puff in these days of Jeffrey Epstein and Harvey Weinstein related anxiety could backfire . This was the coverage of Joanna’s event as provided by the website Hollywoodonthepotomac.com:

On the eve that Dr. Joanna Breyer’s book “When Your Child Is Sick” went hot off the presses, Jan Smith hosted a dinner party in her honor at her home in McLean, VA co-hosted by Diane Jones, Kathy Kemper, Doreen Spiegel and Janine Van Lancker, MD.  Breyer was introduced by Smith as “one of the most genuine people I’ve ever met. She rides her bike all around town. She rides her bike not just for fun, but she shows up for lunch and she shows up for meetings on her bike. She’s always enriching, and uplifting, and educating.”

About the book: To many parents, it is hard to imagine a more upsetting reality than one where their child is hospitalized, severely sick, or terminally ill. In When Your Child is Sick, psychosocial counselor Joanna Breyer distills decades of experience working with sick children and their families into a comprehensive guide for navigating the uncharted and frightening terrain. She provides expert advice to guide them through the hospital setting, at-home care, and long-term outcomes. Breyer’s actionable techniques and direct advice will help parents feel more in-control of a circumstance that has upended their life. When Your Child is Sick is a valuable guide to managing the myriad practical and emotional complications of an impossible situation.

“My path to the book was a little circuitous. I began trying to write after I left Dana-Farber. I started trying to write a book for children on treatment with a part for parents, and people kept saying ‘well, the part for parents is really good, the part for children, hmm.’ And then the final straw was somebody said:  ‘Well, what you need actually is an editor. Why don’t you go and find a children’s author to write that part?’ Fortuitously, just about at that moment, someone else suggested that I perhaps could write a book reflecting parent’s stories for parents, and including my own observations, and that led me to think about the wonderful families whom I’ve worked with over the years, and the work that we’ve done together, and so I suppose I did start writing this book hoping to pass on what I have learned, and also to honor the children whom I’ve worked with in the hope that it would be useful for other parents.”

Dr. Joanna Breyer

“I did want to communicate a few things. One, that having a sick child does have a huge emotional impact on an entire family. That a parent absolutely is a child’s best support, and that therefore the better physical and mental health that they can be in, the better it is for the child. That parents and the children are incredibly different from each other, and that some children being in the hospital and getting treatment is much more difficult than for others. That there are inventions that can help any child, the challenge is to find what. And also that parents themselves are very different, and some want lots of information, some want minimum information. I think what I discovered was that the more that they can know their own style, the less they will sort of get into conflict with either themselves or each other, or with the medical team. The other thing I wanted to convince them of is that siblings are a very important part of the picture and that they are very part of it by what’s happened, and that they have their needs too.”

Senator Amy Klobuchar

“The last part of the book is for the few, and I emphasize few and very unlikely parents whose child has treatment that has not worked. And I think there I focus on how different parents and children react to this awful news. And I try to suggest a few ways that conversations and goodbyes can be made a little bit more bearable, and more comforting. I guess my hope for this book is that it will be helpful to some parents, and that it does honor to the parents and families whom I’ve worked with.”

Senator Amy Klobuchar related her own personal experience with a sick child. “We never knew if she was going to make it through. And none of it would have happened if we didn’t have these incredible, not just doctors, but people who cared about her and tried to figure it out and got her through it. There’s a lot of people that have these stories, so thank you.”

Anyone up for suing the Sacklers for Not Telling Joanna’s Top Doc colleagues that Opioids Are Addictive?


He [Mark Wolfson’s obituarist] said: “Mark always spoke his mind but only after weighing his words. He could always be relied on to come up with a careful assessment of any situation, giving credit where due, but never afraid to point out errors. Behind his charm there was a firm will to promote any rightful cause.”

His interest in Brathay continued throughout his time in politics, becoming chairman of trustees 1992 – while serving as MP for Sevenoaks. In 2002 Mr Wolfson was made an OBE in the New Year’s Honours List, his name put forward by fellow volunteers and employees at Brathay.

Brathay Trust chief executive, Godfrey Owen said: “Behind the establishment person, the old Etonian – there was a very, very kind and thoughtful person – committed to the development of young people.”

On leaving his full time position at Brathay in 1966 Mr Wolfson worked for the Industrial Society and then as a director of Hambros Bank in 1973 where he was appointed personnel director…

…the Sevenoaks Chronicle reported his [election] victory as a “remarkable result” more than doubling Sir John’s [the previous MP] majority of 11,000 to become one of the safest Conservative seats in the country.

His stint in Parliament saw Mr Wolfson also serving as chairman of the Northern Ireland Affairs Committee and when a number of his constituents were among the 543 injured in the Cannon Street train crash in 1991, calling for an end to the overcrowding of commuter trains and the replacement of 60 year-old slam door rolling stock, which contributed to the number of those injured.

Julian Wolfson said his father, who spent many happy years living in the tiny hamlet of Heaverham near Kemsing, was at his best in cross party politics. “Sevenoaks really suited him,” he said

“He was a cross party politician and enjoyed the fact Sevenoaks’ mayor at the time was I believe – Labour. He and my mother really loved Sevenoaks and he loved being an MP for Sevenoaks. There was a real two way bond of affection.”

Mr Wolfson stepped down as Sevenoaks MP at the 1997 election making way for Sir Michael Fallon…

The big storm of October 1987 destroyed the Seven Oaks of Sevenoaks and Wolfson did his bit for Sevenoaks at the time. I can remember that storm very clearly because I was working at the graveyard of CRC labs at the time, Robert Baldwin’s shambles at Nottingham University. I have discussed in previous posts the huge research fraud that Baldwin was perpetrating with Zoma, an American drug company, while he received millions from the CRC and pretended that his team in Nottingham were Discovering Things when they absolutely were not. See ‘Oh Lordy! It’s CR UK’. It was so dire in Baldwin’s lab that anyone with any get up and go got up and went. I was mates with two medical students, Harriet and Mark, who were doing projects in Baldwin’s lab and things were so terrible there that it was the spirit of the Blitz and I’d have coffee and lunch with them in Nottingham Medical School and chat about the excesses of Baldwin and his fellow fraudsters as well as that storm when it happened.

Other parts of Nottingham University had strong links with the Gang as well as the Medical School. Nottingham’s Social Sciences Dept had long hosted members of the Gang’s network who were social workers who facilitated abuse; one of them, Olive Stephenson, was the partner of a former St George’s social worker, Phyllida Parsloe. Parsloe reached very senior levels in Bristol University and the University of the West of England. Parsloe became the Chair of an NHS Trust in Bristol and was forced to resign… See ‘Vested Interests Or Common Pool?’

Harriet lived in Surrey in the stockbroker belt and as in Sevenoaks, the trees in her street had blown over and landed on the Porsches.`Although most of Harriet’s neighbours worked in the City, her mum and dad didn’t and were despairing of their neighbourhood filling up with very rich people who were pricing everyone else out. Harriet’s mum and dad I think were Labour supporters, although they were very well-heeled.

Harriet’s mum taught at a private girls’ school and the Tarbucks’ daughter – presumably Lisa – went to the school, as did Angela Rumbold, the dreadful old bat who became one of Thatch’s Ministers and banged on about Parents Taking Responsibility. Who never ever attended parents’ evenings? One Angela Rumbold. Rumbold was fully on board where concealing organised abuse and the Westminster Paedophile Ring was concerned, as discussed in previous posts.

Harriet’s dad was a Civil Service mandarin. I found out years later that he was Sir David Fell; previous posts discuss Sir David. Sir David served as the Permanent Secretary at the Dept of Economic Development, which is what I think he was when I knew Harriet. Following that, Sir David was transferred to the N Ireland Office and he was Head of the N Ireland Civil Service, 1991-97. Sir David served under N Ireland Secretaries of State Peter Brooke and Paddy Mayhew…

Sir David previously had N Ireland links because he was a graduate of Queen’s University, Belfast. Sir David was appointed Pro Chancellor of Queen’s University in 2005 and Chair of the Senate for Queen’s in 2008. Sir David was Chairman of Harland and Wolff and of Northern Bank. He was also Chair of the N Ireland Council of the Prince’s Trust, 1999-2005. Previous posts provided details of the many other banks and financial institutions of which Sir David was a Director.

Hansard records the slight controversy that arose as a result of Sir David’s early resignation on 1 Oct 1997 and the ‘compensation payments’ that were due to him until his 60th birthday:

HC Deb 16 July 1997 vol 298 c218W

Mr. Robert McCartney

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what will be the total cost of the annual compensation payments made to Sir David Fell from his resignation on 1 October 1997 until his 60 birthday; and what are the grounds on which he is receiving compensation. [7720]

Mr. Murphy

With the approval of the former Secretary of State, Sir David was offered and accepted early retirement in February 1997, under the provisions of the Northern Ireland Civil Service Pay and Conditions of Service Code. The Code provides for flexible retirement on structural grounds where an officer’s departure would assist in easing problems of succession planning. Under the scheme Sir David will receive an annual payment (know as an annual compensation payment) in lieu of pension until normal civil service retirement age.

The total cost of the annual payments is personal to Sir David, under the terms of the Data Protection Act 1984.

Sir David No Want To Work Here Any More

Sir David bagged his knighthood in 1995, the year that Hefin Davies, Chairman of the Gwynedd Community Health Trust, asked a number of different lawyers if there was anything at all for which I could be prosecuted, the year that lies were told about Dafydd retiring, about Denbigh closing down, the year that Bing Spear and Peter Morrison were found dead, the year that Brown was forced out of his job at Aston University…

I found Sir David’s daughter Harriet very pleasant; she and Mark noticed all the wrongdoing in both Baldwin’s lab and at Nottingham Medical School and they both later left medicine. When I knew them they both freely articulated that they would not advise anyone to do medicine, it was an utter con and a very dysfunctional profession.

The rich n famous had just begun to descend on Bridgwater when I knew Harriet and she did used to ask me about them. Not an obvious grilling, but I’m sure she’ll have known that my troubles with the Gang, which she knew about and the offspring of Tories with interests in the City dropping into Bridgwater were of interest to her dad. See ‘Upper Class Twit Of The Year – Shooting Themselves’. The Dangerous Sports Club who were frequenting Fiddington at the time numbered Tommy Leigh-Pemberton (see eg. ‘The Village’) among them. Tommy was the son of Robin Leigh-Pemberton aka Lord Kingsdown, a barrister who later became the Chair of the National Westminster Bank, before serving as the Governor of the Bank of England, 1983-93. Robin Leigh-Pemberton held many roles, including that of a Director of the Bank of International Settlements. I have discussed Robin Leigh-Pemberton in previous posts; his family, including his son James, have held various roles with Carlo. Leigh-Pemberton lived in Kent and was part of County Life there.

Robin Leigh-Pemberton bagged his peerage in 1993.

Here’s Colm O’Kane, who became Deputy General Secretary of UNISON in 1993, without an intellectual argument, but with friends who were sex offenders:


I met Sir David Fell’s daughter Harriet in Sept 1987. Ollie Brooke had been freed from prison by Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane earlier in the summer of 1987 and the Gang’s long-planned Cunning Plan to frame me and have me imprisoned in July/August 1987 had imploded just before I got to know Harriet. Instead I had been charged with yet another non-offence and had been referred to Dr James Earp in Leicester for a Court Report. Earp was on board with the Gang in north Wales and the ring in Leicester, where I was living. Those we know and love were getting jumpy because Frank Beck and Greville Janner were under investigation…. See previous posts.

Risley Remand Centre and the Home Office were on board with the Gang’s Cunning Plan; Douglas Hurd was Home Secretary at the time. Hurd was the nephew of Edred Henry Corner, the Cambridge botanist who was friends with Prof Greig-Smith in the Dept of Plant Biology at UCNW. Hurd was also good mates with Trumpers and her husband Alan Barker, who had taught Hurd at Eton. See ’95 Glorious Years!’.

HOGG – Minister In Home Office under Hurd, DATES. Hogg’s dad Lord Hailsham – ROLES – Dates – UCNW –

Hailsham and Willie of similar vintage. Hailsham was a keen mountaineer as a younger man, so will have known Cumbria and Sir Charles Evans, Principal of UCNW, 1954CHECK-84.

The Mental Health Act Commission were also part of the Cunning Plan. Their CEO was William Bingley, who’s father Admiral Sir Alec knew Hailsham and Willie. William later held a role at Cumbria University, among many other roles; he died in 2011 after a fell-walking accident in Cumbria CHECK.

Hurd served as N Ireland Secretary, Sept 1984-Sept 1985. Tom King the MP for Bridgwater succeeded Hurd, serving as N Ireland Secretary, Sept 1985-July 1989. Harriet’s dad will have known them, he’ll have known about Kincora, Gwynne and Dafydd’s links with Kincora, Dafydd infiltrating Irish Republican activists in N Ireland, Sir David will have known a great deal about Gwynne and Dafydd. Sir David will have known that Dr Morris Fraser, the paedophile child psych who was involved with Kincora, was allowed to continue practising by the GMC after a fitness to practice hearing in the 1970s, although he’d been convicted of a child sex offence. The MDU represented Fraser and Patrick Mayhew acted in the case. Mayhew served as N Ireland Secretary, April 1992-May 1997. Prior to that, Mayhew was Attorney General. It was Mayhew who authorised the attempts to jail me for contempt of court during 1990 and 91. The MDU knew that perjury was committed in every case.

Most of those court cases were brought when I was working at St George’s. Chamberlain and other people working with me there were still publishing with Ollie and he gave his affiliation on the articles as St George’s. See ‘Too Many Pills’. I was told by those publishing with Ollie that he had long gone and he was a broken man.

After Dr Morris Fraser left Belfast, he moved to the mainland and worked at UCL and St George’s.

Ollie was jailed in Dec 1986 at Kingston-upon-Thames Crown Court where many porkies were told about Ollie, with the Court’s knowledge. Sir David lived in the area of Kingston-upon-Thames, a town pretty much owned and run by the corrupt surgeon who also pretty much owned and ran Hammersmith Hospital. Hugh’s son Richard Bentall, in the 1980s, was working as a clinical psychologist with Dafydd’s Gang.

So the Gang had ensured that I had ended up doing my MSc at Hammersmith, with their mates, led by Hugh Bentall, who’s son Richard was a clin psy with Dafydd’s Gang. At Hammersmith I was offered what seemed like a really good number with the CRC, only to encounter Baldwin, as well as Sir David’s daughter. After I got the hell out of Baldwin’s lab, I was offered a job with Vincent Marks’s CRC team at Surrey University. Vincent brother of Dr John Marks of the BMA, on the turf of Peter Taylor, who succeeded Geoffrey Lane as Lord Chief Justice. Following that, I ended up at Westminster Paedophile Ring HQ, St George’s, with Ollie’s mate Prof Chamberlain…

Thatch unexpectedly won the June 1987 General Election after the word had quietly gone out to the Top Docs and others who desperately needed the Westminster Paedophile Ring not to be exposed that they had to vote for whoever had the best chance of shafting me, Alison Taylor, Mary Wynch Brown and the others who were witnesses and complaining. That was not believed to be the Windbag. A lot of people voted SDP-Alliance; Dr Death was mates with the Gang. Death didn’t get what he wanted in June 1987 because of the first past the post British system, although a lot of people voted for him. Shirl declared it a ‘moral victory’. Shirl, Death et al as well as all the other party leaders knew about the plan to frame me and they knew about Alison Taylor and Mary Wynch and they all colluded, hoping to benefit. So I’d say that it was an Immoral Victory Shirl.

The person who had the biggest Immoral Victory was Ieuan Wyn Jones, who won Anglesey for Plaid in June 1987. Ieuan and his wife came from Denbigh, knew Dafydd and Gwynne and Ieuan was friends with my solicitor Alwyn, who took my cases for years but never followed up the rampant perjury that preceded so many cases collapsing. It was Alwyn who found me James Earp after Bangor Magistrates asked for an Expert Report with regard to such a trivial charge…

I have no idea whether Sir David Fell was working on a Cunning Plan with the police who were trying to close in on Ollie, Greville et al, but if he was, he wasn’t very effective and Thatch won in June 1987…

Never mind, Sir David was able to get dressed up for Queen’s University:

After his retirement Mr Wolfson continued his work with Brathay as well as buying a canal boat in which he toured the English waterways…

Bruce Napier, a clin psy who worked at the Hergest Unit in the 1990s and didn’t seem to be as mad and as aggressive as many of his colleagues, disappeared from the Hergest either just before the Waterhouse Inquiry or during it. Bruce went to work in Prof Mark Williams’s research team at Bangor University. After a not very long time working with the Mindfulness ones, Bruce told his colleagues that he ‘wanted to get out of the NHS’ and he was last heard of living on a canal boat in England.

[Wolfson] leaves his wife Edna, whom he married in 1965, two sons, Julian and Nicholas and a granddaughter, Lily.

The Industrial Society convened a group of industrialists and leading trade unionists to reshape the official aims of the campaign.

According to his biographer Joe Haines, Robert Maxwell – the Labour MP for Buckingham, 1964-70, Stoke Mandeville Hospital being nearby – had the idea for a popular ‘Buy British’ campaign around the same time as the ‘I’m Backing Britain’ campaign emerged. Through an intermediary, the Cap’n approached David Frost, who gave a personal donation of £1,000 and invited the Cap’n to appear on David Paradine Frost’s TV show on 5 January 1968. On TV, the Cap’n told viewers to “think before buying. Buy the home product or service first whenever you can, even if it means buying less for a time”. The Cap’n tried to amalgamate his campaign with that of the Industrial Society, but the Society refused him. The Cap’n therefore set up a rival “Help Britain Group”.

The Cap’n obtained letters of support from well-known personalities and launched his campaign with full-page press adverts on 7 February 1968. The adverts, topped with pictures of the three main party leaders, urged readers to “Act on just six of the uncranky suggestions on this page” and listed those who had supported him. One of those named, Bernard Delfont, was upset when his support was revealed, feeling that the Cap’n should have asked him before doing so. Critics pointed to the fact that the Cap’ns Pergamon Press printed a large number of its textbooks and scientific journals in Eastern European countries.

According to the Cap’ns widow, Elizabeth, his campaign won “the hearts and minds of countless ordinary workers around Britain”. However the Cap’n dropped the ‘Buy British’ part of his campaign by the end of February 1968 (retitling it ‘Sell British, Help Britain, Help Yourself’) and he wound up the whole thing in March. Tom Bower, noted that the Cap’n succeeded in becoming the nationally recognised personality of the whole ‘Backing Britain’ campaign, but the Cap’s former lackey, Mirror Editor Roy Greenslade noted that the Cap’n was “a rogue politician” whose protectionist campaign was a “fruitless [cause]”.

At an after-dinner speech in Burnley on 8 January 1968, Harold Wilson criticised those who were “complaining that the other fellow is not pulling his weight” including trade unionists who pointed to the failures of individual employers. Wilson, who later wrote that the campaign “was a helpful and robust response to the gloom and near-defeatism” after devaluation, put Edmund Dell, Under-Secretary at the Dept of Economic Affairs, in charge of Gov’t assistance, presumably the source of dosh that funded Roger and Berenice’s honeymoon jolly across the US and South Africa in the double decker bus.

Edmund Dell was a big mate of Dafydd and the Gang. Dell served as a Manchester City Councillor, 1953-60, when the ring led by the Top Docs of Manchester were proving an umbrella for Gwynne. Dell was then the Labour MP for Birkenhead, 1964-79, one of the Merseyside constituencies run by the Gang; the residents of Birkenhead very obviously did not benefit from Dafydd or Edmund Dell themselves. Frank Field succeeded Dell in the seat. See previous posts. Dell was Sunny Jim’s Secretary of State for Trade, 1976-78. Dell defected to Dr Death’s club in 1981. Edmund Dell was Chairman of Guinness Peat, the founding Chair of Channel 4 and Director of Shell Trading. He was President of the London Chamber of Commerce, 1991-92.

Re Edmund: I think that I’ve found one of those who did so much damage after my grandfather denounced Edward du Cann and the ‘immorality’ in the Liberal Party. Edmund’s own Top Doc friend bit him on the bum; I note that Edmund died on 1 Nov 1999. So Dafydd ensured that Edmund was out of the way before the Waterhouse Report was published in Feb 2000.

See previous posts for more on Edmund Dell…

In early February 1968, The Times went round to ask supermarket chains what the campaign was achieving and found that it varied between “very little” and “none at all”. By the middle of March, the Industrial Society was hinting that it needed a grant from the Gov’t to keep going. It had encouraged local civic leaders across the country to set up local committees of industrialists and trade unionists. The TV series “Dad’s Army“, the opening episode of which was recorded on 15 April 1968, began with a contemporary scene in which Alderman Mainwaring was the Chairman of the Walmington-on-Sea “I’m Backing Britain” campaign.

The Sunday Times ran a large article by Nicholas Tomalin on 3 March 1968 about “the serious and comic history of a patriotic idea”. Tomalin quoted one of the original Surbiton typists as saying that “we got mixed-up when asked horrid questions about trade unions. Thanks to all the interviews and things, we just didn’t get any typing done”. Also in March, the campaign moved from the Industrial Society’s headquarters at Bryanston Square to rent-free offices donated by National Cash Register. The National Cash Register was a wholly owned subsidiary of an American corporation. The Industrial Society’s staff working on the campaign were down to four in May 1968.

The Cap’n declared his campaign was officially over on 5 August 1968. The Industrial Society’s activity for the campaign was limited to sending out badges and promotional material to people who had requested them and it declared that the campaign office would close at the end of September 1968.

Paul McCartney thought the campaign was ridiculous and it inspired him to write a parody song called “I’m Backing the UK”, which eventually became “Back in the U.S.S.R.” on the Beatles‘ 1968 double LP, the “White Album“.

At the conclusion of the film Carry On… Up the Khyber, made during the summer and opening in November 1968, the raising of a Union Flag with the “I’m Backing Britain” slogan is greeted by Peter Butterworth turning to camera and saying: “Of course, they’re all raving mad, you know!”

The events that originated this daft campaign are even more interesting that the fuckwittery of the campaign proper.

Each month, the Board of Trade published figures of the ‘balance of trade’ between exports and imports which seemed to show an ever-increasing deficit. Having put up the bank rate to 6% on 19 October 1967 on 18 November, Wilson’s Gov’t abandoned three years of attempting to maintain the exchange rate and devalued the pound sterling from $2.80 to $2.40. Devaluation was perceived as an export opportunity that British industry needed to seize.

Arising out of devaluation, John Boyd-Carpenter (then Tory MP for Kingston-upon-Thames) wrote to The Times in a letter published on 13 December 1967 suggesting, “If a number of people, particularly in responsible positions, would set by an example by [sic] sacrificing say the first Saturday of every month and working on that morning without extra pay, profits or overtime, it would give an example to others at home, and show the world that we were in earnest”. He complained that capital equipment stood idle from Friday afternoon to Monday morning.

John Boyd-Carpenter had been Thatch’s boss in her first Gov’t position (in Macmillan’s Gov’t). They were in the thick of it as the Profumo Affair broke and they both knew about Gwynne and Dafydd and used their knowledge to benefit themselves. Thatch remained an ally of Boyd-Carpenter (as much as a ruthless disloyal old cow could remain an ally of anyone) for the rest of his days. Previous posts have discussed Boyd-Carpenter and his offspring; they all did very well out of the legacy of Gwynne and Dafydd…

On 27 December 1967, Fred Price (Marketing Director of Colt Ventilation and Heating Ltd) sent out a memo headed “General progress report”, which assessed the company’s economic prospects. Inspired by Boyd-Carpenter, he wrote that the balance of payments deficit would disappear overnight if the working population of the UK worked a five-and-a-half-day week without demanding higher incomes for the extra half day. Price said that Britain would become once more the wealthiest country in the world.

The memo was received by the five secretaries working in the company’s head office in Surbiton, Valerie White, Joan Southwell, Carol Ann Fry, Christine French and Brenda Mumford. The next morning, they discussed it and Joan Southwell said that she was willing to work an extra half day a week. The others agreed, and White took the initiative of writing a reply that said, “What about starting this scheme of a five-and-a-half-day week? Let us be the first company to start the ball rolling”. After discussing the suggestion with the other members of staff, on 29 December 1967, the 240 employees at the head office voted to report for work at 8.30 a.m. instead of 9 a.m. They also made contact with the workers employed at the company’s factory in Havant, Hampshire, to encourage them to do the same. Before the workers had a chance to work their first extra half hour, their campaign had already begun “snowballing fast”. Over the weekend of 30–31 December 1967, five other companies had already decided to follow their example, based in Portsmouth, Southend, Bicester and Manchester; others were telephoning to show their interest.

Phil the Greek sent a telegram describing the campaign as “the most heartening news I heard in 1967” and wishing it success… Advertising agency DPBT bought a full-page advert in The Times of 3 January 1968 offering their spare time, free, to make commercials backing the campaign. All three major political party leaders sent their support, and an all-party press conference promoted the campaign on 5 January 1968. Not all companies joining the campaign did so by working extra unpaid hours, as some cancelled projected price increases and waived fees. The campaign extended to Wales, with the slogan of “Rwy’n Bacio Cymru” (“I’m Backing Wales”).

Now here’s a bit more info that I’ve received very recently. Previous posts discussed a teacher at Chilton School confronting me over my grandfather’s alleged ‘three hour lunch-breaks’ along with other ‘British bosses’ and how I responded by saying that my grandfather had built up the business himself and told all of us constantly that workers won’t respect bosses who work shorter hours than they do, thus my grandfather made a point of arriving in his office by approx. 7am, before anyone else arrived. Some years after my grandfather retired and was partially paralysed by a stroke, the company of which he had been Chairman was clobbered with serious difficulties; either in the late 1970s or early 80s. The workers did an unusually collective thing and agreed to take a pay-cut in order to save the factory. Everyone took the hit, that was the success of the strategy; the factory remained in business and no jobs were lost. Somerset being Tory, the event received a lot of publicity in the right wing press and I think that it made into the London broadsheets as well. There was much praise from some right wing people whom sane people wouldn’t want anything to do with, but that wasn’t the work of anyone to do with the workers at grandpa’s former company who had agreed to do the collective bit to save their jobs…

I have been told that the whole business was attributed to that fascist old grandpa of mine who Exploited The Workers and that this was used by those we know and love to smear me without me knowing it.

Well I’ve cleared up the misunderstanding now haven’t I. Should anyone else wish to pass on lies, gossip and tittle tattle about third parties that have been generated by corrupt professional people running a paedophile gang, do just let me know and I’ll explain why it is not a good idea. There was of course one person in Somerset who did used to roar with laughter when a local young man joked about ‘When I grow up I’m going to Exploit The Workers’; that person was one of Dafydd’s main sources of evidence re my Dangerousness and Insanity…

As for the joker re Exploiting The Workers, he was a SCHOOLBOY who’s parents ran the local health food shop and Natural Healing emporium and the comment was a satire… But then the teachers at Chilton had a problem with him as well and hated his brother so much that when the Somerset police fitted his brother up for child sex offences, the teacher who was linked to Dafydd’s Gang was delighted to fuel the fire…

I will understand if those who played a role in any of this now decide that I No Want To Work Here Any More. It would be best for everyone if you did all piss off once and for all.

Roger’s next project was helping to launch an international emergency fund for students before joining Nupe as a full-time official in 1971.

The Grocer’s Secretary of State for the DHSS, 1970-74, was Keith Joseph:

It was in 1972 that seriously weird events began at Bryn Estyn. The newish Headmaster, David Ursell, was the subject of a complaint and then an investigation re his methods of upholding discipline, was then removed and replaced with Peter Burton, who shortly after was killed as the result of a car crash in Cheshire, along with his wife, his young son and the Deputy Head of Bryn Estyn. In May 1973, Burton was replaced by Matt Arnold from Axwell Park Approved School in Gateshead, who in Nov 1973 was joined by Arnold’s old mate from Axwell Park, Peter Howarth. Arnold and Howarth vastly expanded on the organised abuse in north Wales; they had been part of the ring in the North East and Harold Wilson’s Ministers, including Tony Crosland and Ernest Armstrong – who later became a good mate of Miranda’s – covered up for them. See previous posts.

The ingredients were all available before Keith Joseph was at the DHSS, but it was under Joseph that things really began Swinging in north Wales. Willie Whitelaw as Home Secretary was an essential ingredient, as was Peter Thomas as Welsh Secretary and Thatch the Education Secretary was most obliging as well. Grocer Heath presided over it all.

There is nothing on my documentation directly pointing to the Grocer molesting kids a la tabloid allegations, but if the Grocer wanted to ensure that Gwynne and Dafydd expanded a hub of organised abuse across the whole of Britain, he certainly found an effective way of doing that. This happened while members of my family were very active in the Tory Party and Insiders did know some of what was going on. It was why some people walked away from careers in politics appalled at what was going on and others were reduced to stereotypical country cousins observing that they wouldn’t dare say anything, people like them would be trampled underfoot. My grandfather tried to put a boot in the knackers of one of those most responsible and found himself under attack; he was attacked in ways of which he was unaware as well, as were his sons and then it seems me.

Here’s an even bigger boot in your knackers Tom King, sorry it’s been so long coming, but as you know, I’ve been hampered…

See the source image

Keith Joseph’s orientation to his role at the DHSS can be deduced by his appointment of Barbara Kahan as his children’s social work adviser. Babs and her husband child psychiatrist Dr Vladimir Kahan had been facilitating organised abuse in Oxfordshire for years. Babs was the manager and mentor of Louis Minster, the paedophile social worker who became Director of Richmond-upon-Thames Social Services and ran a huge ring there, linked to the other rings… Babs outlasted Joseph, Babs stayed at the top of her profession in an advisory capacity for decades and was on hand to conceal the big ring in Staffordshire after the Staffordshire Pin-Down Scandal became public. See post ‘Always On The Side Of The Children’.

The Staffs ring was linked to the Gang in north Wales and was responsible for the eventual meltdown of the NHS in that region. See previous posts.

Roger was deeply committed to international socialism working tirelessly with sister unions in Cuba, South Africa and elsewhere.

When Roger Poole was a whippersnapper in NUPE during Grocer Heath’s time as PM, Peter Hain was still a Young Liberal, active in the AAM with Dafydd’s mate David Ennals and others, digging up cricket pitches. The Tories hated Peter Hain but no-one was discussing Cyril Smith et al in public in those days. Or indeed Mr Thrope, who was a supporter of the AAM before wanting to free Nelson Mandela was quite such a popular past-time.

Chris Patten’s wife Lady Lavender who was Patron of Prof Mark Williams’s Oxford Mindfulness Centre, based on the research fraud that he perpetrated with Dafydd’s mates in Bangor – Mark discovered the Miracle of Mindfulness in 1987 – while her husband was Chancellor of Oxford University and held Mark Williams’s contract of employment, was a pal of Peter Hain’s back in the 1970s, because of their mutual AAM activities. Lavender was on board with Mark’s Mindfulness when the NHS in north Wales was in meltdown and I wrote to Peter Hain about their criminality in Peter’s capacity as Secretary of State for Wales. I did not receive a reply. The NHS in north Wales was in meltdown but thought that screaming ‘Mark Williams developed Mindfulness when he worked in Bangor’ somehow compensated.

Prof Mark Williams left Bangor for a Chair at Oxford soon after the Waterhouse Inquiry.

His vision and values identified causes long before they were mainstream. In the 80s Roger joined forces with ex-General Secretary Alan Fisher to present evidence at the Sizewell B inquiry.

The Gang and their associates called on the help of those involved wity the nuclear industry in times of serious crisis. Dafydd had contacts in the nuclear industry who could be bribed or blackmailed via him having worked at Windscale before his degree in medicine at Liverpool University as discussed in eg. ‘Those Who Are Ready To Service’- Dafydd’s ‘career’ in nuclear physics was linked to the activities of Lord Patrick Blackett, one of the Welsh Bloomsbury Set, James Chadwick CHECK NAME , OTHERS – See previous posts

Sir Alec Merrison – the deal with Babs Castle and Dr Death re NHS and private practice

Lord Brian Flowers was the nuclear physicist who served as VC of Manchester and London Universities. Flowers was Mr Big, who gained the upper hand over the Top Docs of the London Medical Schools including Bentall, Bob Winston et al at Hammersmith. Flowers presided over the merged London Medical Schools, merged a few more of them and world domination by the Gang began. See previous posts.

He also campaigned with HIV/AIDS specialist Professor Tony Pinching to highlight HIV/AIDS as a workplace issue despite fierce resistance in some union quarters.

Roger worked with unlikely allies – including a senior Tory politician – to influence Margaret Thatcher on the need for urgent action.

Acheson – fowler – infected blood transfusions

He used the same widely-focused approach to even greater effect in representations during the ambulance crews’ campaign.

Roger was a key player in the negotiations between Nupe, COHSE and NALGO to form Britain’s first super-union Unison in 1993.

In 1999 Roger was asked to join the team set up by the government to look at the future of the Co-operative movement. And when he retired from Unison, he was appointed by the then Northern Ireland Secretary Peter Hain to chair the NI Parades Commission from 2005 to 2009. Roger’s exceptional negotiating skills were further recognised and put to use in a series of sensitive roles in recent years, including mediating on labour relations at Royal Mail.

When Roger was diagnosed with colon cancer he fought the disease in the same way he had fought his union battles – with the conviction of hope, humour and humanity.

Now don’t you worry Mr Poole, we’ll look after you.

See the source image

Only Acheson himself had died on 10 Jan 2010 after bechod they did all that they could, so one of Poole’s big umbrella’s had been removed.

He is survived by his wife Bernice, son Jason, daughter Jessica and three granddaughters – Lexus, Megan and Bethany.

Ambulance Dispute 1989-1990

Ambulance workers enjoyed unprecedented levels of public support during the six-month dispute as opinion polls found more than four out of five people consistently backed the unions.

Successive Gallup polls for the Daily Telegraph found even a majority of Conservative voters felt Health Secretary Kenneth Clarke should come up with more cash as he took the brunt of the blame for the disruption to patient services.

When I was still discussions current events with D.G.E. Wood, we discussed Ken’s war with the BMA. I commented to Wood that all the BMA have to do is tell the media that Patients Will Suffer, the TV news reports will show footage of neonates in cots and the BMA will get whatever they want. Wood laughed loudly, rubbed his hands together and said ‘It’s called political muscle’. He did not admit that the real political muscle was exerted by he and his colleagues trafficking kids for Peter Morrison, Norman St John Stevas, George Thomas and many others…

Electors said they would even be prepared to pay a little more income tax to fund a deal,

The electorate didn’t know what the NHS Heroes were doing

while other health service staff, including nurses, disclosed that they would not demand an equal pay rise if ambulance crews and control room staff were awarded more than the going rate.

The cohorts within the NHS are at each other’s throats constantly, so that display of solidarity must have involved holding many people over a barrel.

Such sympathy was evident daily by the millions of pounds that filled the buckets
thrust forward by the ubiquitous, fluorescent-jacketed ambulance staff that became as much a part of shopping centres as Boots and McDonald’s.

TUC General Secretary Norman Willis told how would-be queue-jumpers were ordered to the back of the line while he waited patiently to add his name (no doubt again) to the record-breaking petition.

Norman Willis (see previous posts) and his mates had a great deal of muscle at the time, because Ollie Brooke had been caught and convicted and there was a major police investigation into organised abuse in Leicestershire focussing on social worker Frank Beck, who was a friend of Greville Janner.

All good stuff for the unions but, of course, it was never ordained to be so, as previous disputes involving NHS workers in the 1970s and early 1980s demonstrated.

This time round the five unions involved COHSE, NUPE, TGWU, NALGO and GMB — paved the way for their own success by breaking new ground with a slick public relations campaign that went further than any previously used by a workforce during a dispute. The initiative was seized with a strategy that had its effect on the wider world of statements and actions worked out, instead of merely addressing the troops, and realised the importance of newspaper, radio and TV in getting a message across.

Thatch used the same strategy on a Britain-wide basis. It was Lord Tim Bell wot masterminded it (see post ‘Lord Tim Bell’), using his knowledge of Dafydd and Gwynne and various politicians, particularly Tom King and Edward du Cann…

See the source image

Once a groundswell of public opinion had been generated, every opportunity was taken to portray the crews and not the Government as the patient’s friend and to hammer home a simple message.

also Alison n n wales – 1989

Initiatives were repeatedly launched to make the running rather than merely provide reaction which, by staying one step ahead, often wrong-footed the Government and kept the Departmental of Health on the defensive for much of the time.

Alison – mary – me

Frequent press conferences, a national demonstration, the petition, a quarter-hour of action and even a hunger strike kept the dispute in the public eye when it might have been forgotten.

The unity displayed by the five unions and the absence of what for the NHS used to be traditional in-fighting, rivalry and factionalism allowed a united front to be displayed which forced journalists to look towards the Government for splits and divisions.

In that vein, tasks were allocated to avoid repetition and confusion. NUPE’s Roger Poole, the chief negotiator, became the public voice and was constantly in the media, modelling a new hair cut and a businessman’s suit to look as well as sound the part.

Thatch was famously revamped, but one thing that many observers missed was that one bit of the earliest advice was to lose those ridiculous Ladies’ Luncheon Club hats of which Thatch had been so fond.

See the source image

The hats had been a gift to political cartoonists when Thatch was the Grocer’s Education Secretary and they weren’t deemed acceptable for a PM.

Meanwhile, COHSE’s Bob Abberley beavered away behind the scenes in Parliament to put crucial political pressure on Ministers which was as important.

See the source image

Several years ago everyone would have been clamouring to appear on TV as they jockeyed for status and, no doubt, future members. Now a trio of those involved, COHSE, NUPE and NALGO, could end up merging — partly as a result of the demonstration that they can work together.

See the source image

The two immediate goals of the dispute — a substantial pay rise and new pay machinery — were constantly pressed home in simple, relevant terms by the unions, while other issues such as local bargaining and privatisation which the public would either not understand or have less sympathy with were left in the background.

Opinion polls showed that the ambulance worker-supporting public did not know what the Government’s offer was or how the pay mechanism demanded would work. But what they did believe was that crews were worth more, and the new system would just about rule out future industrial action.

The employers, on the other hand, varied their official spokesman between Kenneth Clarke, NHS chief executive Duncan Nichol,


and David Rennie, who chairs the employers’ side on the Whitley Council negotiating body, with the result that apparent differences of opinion were interpreted as splits.

There were splits, splitting COHSE and setting the different groups of NHS workers against each other was a plan dreamt up by Ken Clarke and the Leadership of COHSE were fully signed up to it.

In many respects the unions’ public relations campaign set a model for others to follow and established standards by which they will be judged in the future.

King’s Cross, November 1987; it is believed that the fire was intended to kill a witness to a paedophile ring:

A black and white photograph of King's Cross underground station during the fire with billowing smoke, station lights and fire engines.

The strategy was not entirely new, although the effective use of the latest communications technology which meant Poole and Abberley could always be reached for an instant quote did break new ground.

After all National Union of Railwaymen General Secretary Jimmy Knapp
projected himself very successfully last summer as the passengers’ friend in the confrontation with BR over pay and bargaining rights by hammering home a simple message and making it relevant to the wider travelling public rather than limiting the dispute to the interests of his members.

The NUR and others working with the railways had the gen on George Thomas, because one of Thomas’s favourite locations for assaulting young men and boys was on trains. There were complaints but no action taken. The NUR sponsored a number of Labour MPs, including in south Wales at George Thomas Central. See previous posts for info on the NUR and the big wigs of the railways, including Shirl’s ex, Sir Peter Parker, Chairman of the British Railways Board, 1976-83.

And the Confederation of Shipbuilding and Engineering Unions hired a PR firm with close links to the labour movement to get their message across in the shorter working week campaign. But the five national negotiators, dubbed the “famous five” for the way they often appeared together and even started wearing matching overcoats, took PR a significant step further.

The dispute was right for the tactics. Ambulance workers had a reasonable it not a good case and have a high public profile because of the life-and-death nature of the job. The timing of the dispute was also right in that the polls had already started to move against the Government, which the unions were able to capitalise on.

Flashing blue lights and 999 sirens provided excellent TV pictures in particular

Further, crews used to dealing with the public in high-pressure situations adapted well to the glare of TV lights and, judging by the number of local stunts launched, actually liked the media attention.

Running a similar campaign on behalf of other low-paid groups such as ancillary workers — however deserving — will not be as easy.

It is not so easy to tell such blatant lies about their way of conducting business

See the source image

But the lessons are there and should be learnt.

Splits and in-fighting in the union camp would have been reported. Violent picketing and clashes with the police would have made attention-grabbing TV pictures. Disputes will be covered in the form they occur. It’s up to the unions how they want to run their campaigns, but if it’s public opinion they want on their side, they could do worse than copy the ambulance workers.

COHSE Journal, May 1990. Kevin Maguire is the Daily Telegraph labour correspondent. He writes here in a personal capacity:

MAY 1990!! High Court –

knew what was in those letters and med records

NOTES: In my experience, this was undoubtedly one of the best led strikes in the NHS, the ability to use the media and the discipline of local Ambulance union reps and members was key to winning and maintaining public support.

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones


The hub of the dispute was undoubtedly London and West London in particular most notably Park Royal, Feltham, Twickenham and Hillingdon ambulance stations. Crews in Birmingham, Merseyside and Dorset were also very strong.

These will have been key areas re Gwynne, Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring in some way. Obviously with Birmingham and Merseyside it was the Robert Bluglass and Dafydd connection.

The tactic of slowly increasing pressure on employer (overtime bans, emergencies only etc) forced the management in frustration to effectively “lock out” ambulance staff by refusing to send any calls to these stations and bring in the Army.

The Crews responded by occupying the ambulance stations as they did at Hillingdon, the management being forced to issue injunctions, but with little effect.

Elsewhere, in the country, Ambulance management in many areas did not follow London’s tactics and the crews remained at work, allowing them to secure even more support and money for those “locked out”.

Nine weeks into the dispute the Health Service Journal reported that an estimated 27 out of 44 ambulance services were operating a 999 only service.

Kenneth Clarke’s remarks that ambulance workers were little more than “professional drivers” totally incensed the crews.

One Nation Tory Ken pissed everyone off at the time by commenting that ambulance workers drove ‘little old ladies’ around. An Angry Letter into ‘The Guardian’ asked what Ken Clarke had against little old ladies. Uncle Harry and his friends and relatives will have been most grateful that there was no chance at all of ‘The Guardian’ publishing a word about the purpose and conduct of some of the ambulance drivers in north Wales.

On January 13th 1990 75,000 attended a TUC national demonstration in support of the ambulance workers and on 30th January a day of solidarity, when South London bus drivers came out on strike.

While the dispute was not a total success, the public was confident the unions had rightly won and gave a big fillip of confidence to NHS trade unionists.

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

Roger Poole was an excellent public speaker and with a CP background understood the need to keep both the public and the members on side. Bob Abberley became known as “Rogers bag carrier” and Jeanette Roe COHSE Regional Officer did Stirling work with Pete Marshall COHSE Regional Secretary in galvanising COHSE members in London.


Dafydd’s mates at the Maudsley were heavily represented in COHSE; Strong Woman Jo Brand was a COHSE rep for the Maudsley before she became a Woman Who Told The Boys On HIGNFY What It’s Like To Be Sexually Harassed, as discussed in previous posts.

This is what the COHSE blog has to say about Pete Marshall:

Pete Marshall started his nursing career at St Margaret’s hospital in Birmingham which cared for mentally handicapped patients/clients.

That will have been part of the domain of Dafydd’s mate Prof Robert Bluglass…

He was a keen advocate of progressive policies with regard to the mentally handicapped. He soon became involved in the local COHSE branch becoming its Assistant Branch Secretary and publicity officer. Pete, along with his close friend Andy Stackhouse, organised a very high profile campaign regarding staffing levels at the hospital, which culminated in a huge vote of no confidence in the hospitals senior management.

Pete Marshall was appointed COHSE regional officer for North Thames & Oxford region of COHSE in May 1984, securing a high level of popularity amongst the COHSE activists on his patch.

He soon secured a high profile in the London media, around campaign such as Brent anti-cuts campaign.

Red Ken, Paul Boateng, Harriet and Mr Harman-Dromey will have known about that, all being activists or elected representatives in/for Brent. Red Ken and Boateng colluded with the Gang in north Wales (see previous posts) and Harriet’s dad Top Doc John Harman knew Gwynne and Dafydd. Which makes the business of Harriet assisting the Maudsley when they wanted to unlawfully detain a man who had consulted Harriet in her capacity as his local MP by following the Maudsley’s orders when they told her to make a police statement claiming that he’d threatened her and she felt in danger, as discussed in earlier posts, even more worrying than it would have been if Harriet’s dad had not have been mates with Dafydd and his network at the Maudsley.

Strong Woman Mary Turner who rose to be President of the GMB in 1997 lived in Brent, worked as a school dinner lady there and became a trade union organiser in the area, rising to the top of the GMB. While Mary was making much of her concern for ‘women and children’, Jasmine Beckford died in full view of her school in Brent and in the care of the local authority. See post ‘Mary Turner – An Appreciation’.

The Central Middlesex Hospital was located on the border of Brent. One dominant figure at the Central Middlesex was Welsh Top Doc Sir Francis Avery Jones, who knew Dafydd and Gwynne. Avery Jones was a DHSS adviser while I was doing battle with the Gang and it was Avery Jones’s lack of goalposts re patients’ access to the medical records that enabled the Gang to legally withhold evidence that could have imprisoned them for years; although after Avery Jones’s Guidance no longer applied, the Gang simply unlawfully withheld my records. 

Jonathan Miller worked as a junior doc for Francis Avery Jones. Jonathan was the son of a child psychiatrist Emanuel Miller, so the Millers went back with Gwynne and Dafydd to the dawn of civilization. Jonathan helped the Gang out in many ways, most obviously in the early 1990s, when they were under police investigation and trying to have me imprisoned; Jonathan made a mini-series for TV about Madness, a combination of messages including Ooh they can be Clever In Their Madness you know and of course Ah the doctors they were wonderful. At least one Top Doc Filmed With Real Psychiatric Patients was working in a team that was facilitating abuse. See eg. ‘The International Language of Screaming’ and ‘Bernard Levin and Jonathan Miller Talk Bollocks’.

Jonathan’s son William worked with one of my friends at the BBC, who was forced out of his job after he refused to accept a bribe. And Jonathan was friends with Zany Graham Chapman who became friends with Mr Bridgy Celeb…

Francis Avery Jones was a gastroenterologist. Imagine my surprise when, after decades of my records being withheld from me, I discovered that they contained a copy of a job application that I had made in the 1980s for a research fellowship in gastroenterology, but not with Francis Avery Jones; it was with a Professor King. I can’t remember who Professor King was, I must look him up.

That profession is the pits, it absolutely is. I have discussed the most extraordinary things that were in my medical records, but how did they end up receiving copies of my job applications and filing them after they had received copies? Perhaps the GMC or BMA could explain.


Neasden hospital occupation and the 1988 nurses dispute (the later securing not only a significant pay rise for nurses but also a massive increase in London Weighting). Pete helped establish the London Co-ordinating committee of COHSE and served for many years as London Health Emergency treasurer.

In the mid 1980’s, Pete along with Bob Abberley were key in pushing through a mayor review of COHSE’s policies with regard to the Mentally Handicapped services (Learning difficulties). This led the union into having a progressive view with regard to the closure of the old large Victorian institutions. Without this progressive view COHSE would not only have lost new professionals entering this field, but more importantly could have seriously undermined any move to the community facilities.

Pete was a committed anti-racists and fascist and was involved the infamous “Battle of Waterloo” against the BNP at Waterloo station.

Pete was elected to the Executive of the Greater London Labour Party and was a close associate of Jim Fitzpatrick (later MP for Bow & Poplar).

Dafydd’s partner ring operated in the East End, facilitated by Wendy Savage et al at the London Hospital. Fitzpatrick was elected as the MP for Bow and Poplar (now Poplar and Canning Town) in May 1997, five months after the Waterhouse Inquiry opened. 

Legacy of Gwynne and Dafydd in the area – the Tories opened to purse strings to regenerate the East End after Gwynne and Dafydd – silently blackmailed by the Labour Councillors and MPs in the East End. See ‘Tower Hamlets, Paul Boateng and Tessa Jowell ‘, ‘The Bodies Beneath Canary Wharf’ and ‘Apocalypse Now’.

James Fitzpatrick (born 4 April 1952) served as a Minister under Gordon Brown. In June 2019, he announced that he would not stand for re-election to Parliament.

Fitzpatrick was born in Glasgow and educated locally at the Holyrood R.C. Secondary School in Crosshill.


In 1974, Fitzpatrick joined the London Fire Brigade and left the fire service when he was elected to the Commons in 1997.

Fitzpatrick was elected as the Chair of the Barking Constituency Labour Party, and was Chair of the Greater London Labour Party for seven years.

Strong Woman Jo Richardson was the Labour MP for Barking, 1974-94. After a lifetime on the left of the Labour Party campaigning for Wimmin while carefully ignoring everything unpleasant happening to Wimmin at the hands of Gwynne and Dafydd. Jo did know about the Gang and very early in her career as well because she served as secretary to Ian Mikardo, one of the East End MPs who was colluding with Gwynne and Dafydd’s partner gang in the East End (Mikardo retired to Cheshire). Jo co-authored the ‘Keep Left’ pamphlets with Richard Crossman, Ian Mikardo and Michael Foot. Foot was involved with sexual exploitation and at least linked to organised abuse and his huge network of family and friends assisted in concealing it. See ‘The Bay Of Pigs Invasion’. Jo was a Woman Who Campaigned Against Porn, yet was on the Executive of the NCCL when the NCCL was affiliated to PIE. Jo wrote an article in PIE’s publication ‘Children’s Rights’, in support of PIE’s stance against corporal punishment. In 1985 Jo, was named as a KGB agent by a defector; Jo denied it, but surely the question is what would the KGB want with an idiot like Jo Richardson?

Jo’s death in office on 1 Feb 1994 provided the opportunity for Little Nell to enter the Commons. Little Nell was elected as the MP for Barking on 9 June 1994, the day that Matt Arnold died of an unidentified blood disease. Little Nell’s husband the judge Sir Henry Hodge was a leading light in the NCCL.

There is a school in Barking named after the paedophile-friendly Jo Richardson. See previous posts for further info re Jo…

Fitzpatrick was appointed as the PPS to the Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Alan Milburn in 1999, until Milburn became the Secretary of State for Health later in the same year. Milburn was a Newcastle Councillor and then constituency MP in the North East on the turf of Dafydd and Gwynne’s partner ring; Miranda appointed Milburn as Health Secretary when he could no longer cope with Dobbo’s efforts at the Dept of Health. Milburn is married to a Nice Lady Psychiatrist.  For info on Dobbo Of Camden and Milburn, see eg. ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part IV’.

After the 2001 General Election, Fitzpatrick was appointed as Assistant Gov’t Whip by Miranda, becoming a Lord Commissioner to the Treasury (Government Whip) in 2002. Fitzpatrick was again promoted within the Whips Office in 2003 when he became the Vice-Chamberlain of HM’s Household

Following the 2005 General Election, Fitzpatrick was then appointed a junior Minister in Prezza’s Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, with the role of Minister for London, a role that Fitzpatrick took with him on his subsequent move to the Department of Trade and Industry in May 2006. In 2007, he argued against a CWU strike saying it would harm their cause.

On 29 June 2007, Fitzpatrick moved to become the junior Minister at the Department for Transport, with shipping, aviation and road safety amongst his responsibilities, and was replaced as Minister for London by that good friend of the Gang,  former Lambeth child care officer and Maudsley psychiatric social worker, Top Doc’s daughter and former Deputy Director of MIND, member of Camden Royalty Tessa Jowell.

In 2008, during the Christmas period, Fitzpatrick and his wife visited Bangladesh, touring the development projects supported by the Canary Wharf Group. The purpose of the trip was to re-visit the country since 1999, and see the regeneration projects that this group supports. During his visit, he visited the Football Academy in Dhaka, also to Jagannathpur and Sylhet, where many Bangladeshis in the UK originate from including many in his constituency. Fitzpatrick was promoted to Minister of DEFRA in the June 2009 reshuffle. He kept this role until Labour’s defeat at the 2010 General Election.

Fitzpatrick was campaign manager for former Labour MP Oona King (Baroness King of Bow) in her failed attempt to be endorsed as the Labour candidate in the 2012  London Mayoral Election. Baroness Oona is a friend of Uncle Harry’s nephew. The Baroness’s auntie is Dr Miriam Stoppard, who began her career as an Angel in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, until she discovered the ring in the North East that was facilitated by Gwynne’s mate Lord John Walton, after which Miriam was soon the Dr Miriam of HRT and Celebrity. Miriam was previously married to playwright Tom, who had close links to Bristol as a consequence of Tom having been a journo on the ‘Western Daily Press’, based in Bristol, in the 1950s/60s…

When I was a teenager, the ‘Western Daily Press’ was a West Country version of ‘The Sun’ really, right wing and full of sex. There will have been much that those who worked on the WDP found out about but never published…

After splitting up with Dr Miriam, Tom had a relationship with Felicity Kendall, famous for her award winning bum. Tom is now married to Carlo’s ex girlfriend, Sabrina Guinness.

Fitzpatrick is a Parliamentary supporter of Labour Friends of Israel.

In June 2019, Fitzpatrick announced that he would not stand for re-election to Parliament.

Jim Fitzpatrick is married to Dr Sheila Fitzpatrick.

He has two children from a previous marriage. A supporter of Millwall Rugby Club, Poplar Bowls, Wapping Hockey Club and West Ham United Football Club,.

In 2011, Fitzpatrick was honoured to receive the Freedom of the City of London and subsequently was admitted as a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Shipwrights. In 2017, he was elected to the Court of the Shipwrights Livery and made a Younger Brother at Trinity House. Fitzpatrick is an honorary associate of the National Secular Society.

Hansard, July 2010, stars Jim Fitzpatrick, who had secured a debate in the House about a painful neurological condition that he had experienced; luckily for Jim, in the end it was a case of Ah the doctors they were wonderful, in particular the Top Doctors at the National Hospital for Neurology, Queen’s Square (Lord Snowdon’s close friend Roger Gilliatt worked there for years, Roger being a friend of Gwynne who was the son of Sir William Gilliatt, the Royal Top Doc who delivered Carlo and Anne and taught Gwynne when Gwynne was a student (as was Roger) at the Middlesex, as discussed in previous posts) and the Top Docs at the Royal London Hospital, workplace of Geoffrey Chamberlain’s friend Wendy Savage, that hosted the partner ring to Gwynne and Dafydd.

Can I just ask readers when they read Jim’s account and the responses of others in the House, that in 2008 the Gang in north Wales had mounted a Rebellion via the Welsh Affairs Select Committee, after it was mooted that neurology patients from north Wales should be referred to south Wales rather than Liverpool. Nerys had died after Dafydd’s mates at the Walton Centre in Liverpool had found that there was nothing that they could do shortly before the Rebellion was launched.

Trigeminal Neuralgia

Motion made, and Question proposed, That this House do now adjourn. -(James Duddridge.

7.5 pm

Jim Fitzpatrick (Poplar and Limehouse) (Lab): I am very pleased to have secured this debate, and I hope it might provide some comfort to many people across the UK who suffer from the condition of trigeminal neuralgia or TN. I should declare my interest: I have been a fellow sufferer. It is an interest I would gladly disown and, indeed, I fairly recently had neurosurgery to try to achieve just that-to disown it. I am grateful to the Minister for being in his place, and I am sure that he is as pleased as I would have been in his position to be closing the sitting for the Government before the recess.

If I may, I will outline some background to the condition, because part of the reason for securing this debate was to raise awareness of TN. Then I would like to express a little appreciation for those trying to deal with TN and help the sufferers. I will conclude with a few requests of the Minister, of which I have given him prior notice.

The Trigeminal Neuralgia Association UK-TNA UK-of which I am a member, is a support group for people suffering from an agonisingly painful neurological condition. Trigeminal neuralgia affects one or more of the three branches of the trigeminal nerve in the head and has been called “the worst pain known to man.” It is characterised by sudden, excruciating spasms of electric shock-like pain, usually just on one side of the face. Thankfully, it is a relatively rare condition thought to affect less than 0.1% of the population, although the latest TNA indications are that there are 12.6 sufferers per 100,000 people in the UK. It is more common in women than men, and although it usually affects people aged 50 or over, the association is coming across many younger sufferers, even young children.

I remember my first referral to a maxillofacial consultant at the Royal London hospital. He asked me to describe my symptoms. I told him and the medical students who were with him, “It makes me cry”. “There you are,” he told his team, “a classic definition of the condition. You either have a London bus parked on your foot or you have trigeminal neuralgia.”

Apparently there is nothing new about TN. It has been documented from the times of the Greeks and Romans in the 1st century, but because of its rarity research has been spasmodic and it is still a little-known condition often misdiagnosed due to lack of knowledge among some medical professionals.

The exact cause of the condition is unknown, but it is thought to be as a result of damage to the root of the nerve at the base of the skull where it emerges from the brain stem and often because the nerve is being compressed by a vein or artery. This damage causes the nerve to malfunction and send messages of intense pain to the brain in response to just a light touch on a “trigger” area of the face.

The pain can last from a few seconds to a few minutes, and there can be many bursts of pain in quick succession. Many patients suffer for months or years without correct treatment, and even undergo extensive, unnecessary dental work before the condition is correctly diagnosed. There can be periods of complete pain remission, but these gradually become shorter and shorter, and patients therefore live in constant fear of a severe attack of debilitating pain.

Any facial movement, such as eating, talking, smiling or kissing, shaving, washing the face or brushing one’s teeth can provoke an attack, and that can completely destroy any quality of life. There were several occasions in this place when I was preparing to speak and was fearful that I would be prevented from doing so because of the sense of an impending attack. That might have improved others’ quality of life in not having to listen to me, but for some patients being unable to live normally leads to their becoming isolated and depressed, sometimes to the point of suicide.

Normal painkillers do not bring any relief and initially anticonvulsants used to treat epilepsy are prescribed. However, these often have unpleasant side effects and lose their efficacy with time so ever larger doses are required. When the medication is no longer effective, or if the side effects cannot be tolerated, various surgical procedures can be considered, although these carry a risk of complication and results are not always long lasting. The data on the success of surgical procedures are only now being assessed and will be more accurately evaluated in the future. The most effective operation is a micro-vascular decompression or MVD-major surgery that involves moving the offending blood vessel or vessels away from the nerve, close to the brain stem. Unfortunately, TN has a habit of recurring, and even this operation does not always deliver long-term relief.

I should at this point express my sincere thanks to the excellent Mr Neil Kitchen and his first-class team at the national hospital for neurology and neurosurgery in Queen’s square, London. He operated on me last December, and I am happy to say that since then, when I was in considerable distress, my condition is much improved and my need for medication is now minimal. I should also say thank you to my wife, Dr Sheila Fitzpatrick, without whose care, love and attention a difficult experience would have been much more painful.

The Trigeminal Neuralgia Association was formed in 1999 by a patient and a doctor, Professor Joanna Zakrzewska. It specialises in treating TN, offers support and encouragement to sufferers, and became a registered charity in 2002. Professor Zak, as she is fondly known for obvious spelling and articulation reasons, is a beacon of hope to all TN sufferers. Worldly and wise, she is the essence of reassurance, and on her own or sometimes allied to Mr Kitchen and other surgeons, she offers sufferers real hope.

The aims of the association are to continue to provide information and offer support to members, and to raise awareness of TN among medical professionals and the general public. TNA UK receives no Government or corporate funding and is entirely dependent on membership fees and donations. All the association’s officers give their time for free, and TNA UK is now in contact with more than 1,000 patients, receiving many new inquiries each week. The officers of the association-the tireless chairman Jillie Abbott, supported primarily by Mr George Cunningham, a former hon. Member and treasurer of TNA UK, and membership officer Mr Clive Clifton-and numerous other generous individuals volunteer to spread the word, helping sufferers and raising awareness. They are all very much appreciated because of their efforts. The association can be reached by searching the web for TNA UK.

I mentioned earlier the misdiagnosis of TN as dental problems. I am pleased to report that the British Dental Association has acknowledged that its members can help in this regard. I am told that it plans to commission an article on facial pain for its British Dental Journal, and is considering a session on facial pain at next year’s BDA conference. We in TNA UK will be happy to do all we can to assist with that, and we are grateful to the BDA for looking at the issue so seriously. I have also written today to the BDA to seek confirmation of the initiatives.

I would be very grateful if the Minister advised the House on the following matters. In his briefing for this debate, have his officials acknowledged that there is an awareness issue? Notwithstanding the rarity of the condition, greater familiarity among medical and dental practitioners would save money and, more importantly, reduce suffering. TNA UK is not asking for funding, although that would be welcome-if the Minister has his cheque book, we would like to see it.

As I have said, the association volunteers work very hard. However, can the Minister advise whether there is anything that TNA UK can do to help additionally promote awareness of trigeminal neuralgia within the NHS family? Is there anything that the NHS can do specifically to support Professor Zak in her research into the condition and surgical outcomes? Finally, TNA UK and individual sufferers would welcome any advice that the Minister might have in respect of their condition and how their overall situation might be improved.

I am grateful for the opportunity to have this debate and I look forward to the Minister’s response.

7.14 pm

The Minister of State, Department of Health (Mr Paul Burstow): I congratulate the hon. Member for Poplar and Limehouse (Jim Fitzpatrick) on securing the opportunity to debate this important issue on the last day before the summer recess. To have the privilege to be the Minister replying to a debate at this Dispatch Box is not something I necessarily expected when we all departed from this House in April, so it is a double pleasure to be concluding business in the House before we leave for a busy summer recess.

I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on highlighting this important topic, on bringing it to the attention of the House and on raising it with me as the Minister and, through me, with officials. He is right to raise both his personal experience and, in doing so, the experiences of many others who suffer from this condition and who often live with long-term chronic pain. He has spoken movingly and powerfully about the misery and discomfort that the condition can bring. I have heard that in some cases a strong wind just brushing a person’s cheek can be enough to trigger or ignite that intense pain through the nerve endings firing up. That is almost impossible to imagine unless one has personally experienced it, as he has described.

The hon. Gentleman asked about professional awareness. I have to confess that ministerial awareness of this condition was extremely low until quite recently. I had not heard about it-I will be honest-and I have spent the past few days learning as much as possible about it. From what I have learned, I agree that the condition deserves to be much better understood by policy makers, the general public and front-line clinical staff. The hon. Gentleman gave an excellent account of what clinical experts believe causes trigeminal neuralgia and of how the condition can be managed, and he rightly talked about how understanding of its prevalence is developing.

As the hon. Gentleman has explained, there are various treatments available. I understand that in about three-quarters of cases, patients respond well to anti-convulsant drugs, which have the effect of settling the nerve endings. However, although those drugs can be effective in reducing the frequency of attacks, they might not remove the pain entirely. Pain management techniques are then important for helping patients to manage their condition when attacks occur. As he has described, some patients might find that drug treatments become less effective over time or that they cause undesirable side effects. That is when surgery might become necessary to interrupt or block electrical activity in the nerve. There are several options, as he has described, but in the most severe cases, surgery is often the option taken up; it can be invasive and delicate, and it might not always bring the long-term relief that is desired.

Radiosurgery is another option, which may successfully interrupt the nerve impulses. There is exciting work under way using Gamma Knife technology, which is less invasive and can be more effective. The hon. Gentleman might be interested to know that the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence recently issued updated guidance on treating trigeminal neuralgia using Gamma Knife.

I have been told by my policy officials that one of the big challenges in treating this condition is diagnosis, which involves a GP or dentist having to rule out a whole host of other possibilities, including tumours, dental problems, the after-effects of shingles and dysfunction of the jaw. I can tell the hon. Gentleman that the Royal College of General Practitioners has developed a curriculum statement for neurological problems, which includes the need to consider trigeminal neuralgia in patients with headaches and neuropathies-I think that last word will read better in Hansard than I pronounced it-so it should be something that GPs cover as part of their initial training.

I add that the condition is also referenced in undergraduate dentistry training. Of course, because of its rarity, many GPs and dentists will see it only very infrequently in their practice, so I join the hon. Gentleman in welcoming the work that the British Dental Association is doing to promote the condition and to keep these possibilities in the front of dentists’ minds. By way of supporting these efforts, I have asked my officials to contact the dental deans to make sure that the condition also features in the continuing education and training of dentists.

The hon. Gentleman’s description of trigeminal neuralgia shows the need to join up national and local approaches to pain management and long-term conditions. As an action arising from this debate, I have asked my officials to look carefully at pain management in the context of the framework for long-term neurological conditions. I want to help the NHS to make the right connections between local services and to align national and local policies more closely to be helpful in that regard. We will have to make sure that all that feeds into commissioning and clinical practice at local level, and there are several areas in which we are looking to build knowledge and awareness at all levels of the NHS.

First, as the hon. Gentleman might be aware, NICE has recently issued new clinical guidelines on managing neuropathic pain. The guidelines specifically mention trigeminal neuralgia and describe the circumstances in which patients should be referred to a specialist pain service. On the back of that, NICE is working with the National Institute for Health Research to explore additional avenues of research that could help patients with the condition.

The NICE guidelines on neuropathic pain recommended four areas for future research, one of which is specific to trigeminal neuralgia and would give us evidence of the effectiveness of one of the most commonly used treatments. The other three topics cover the use of combination drug therapies, factors influencing quality of life, and the question of how much treatment should be influenced by the underlying cause of pain. They will be relevant to all forms of neuropathic pain, including trigeminal neuralgia. I can tell the hon. Gentleman that the topics are being considered for research as part the health technology assessment programme, and that a decision will be made in due course.

A second area of interest concerns the future planning of local services. The Government have agreed to press ahead with a national pain audit, to which 200 pain clinics are already signed up. Data collection will begin later this year. The audit will assess not only the organisation of local services to ensure that they meet local needs, but quality of care through the measurement of patient outcomes. The audit will help us to build a picture of patient need, which will help the NHS to build local strategies to improve pain management services. Again, such information will enable us to ensure that the right services are available for people with trigeminal neuralgia.

Thirdly, as the hon. Gentleman might also be aware, a consultation will take place during the summer on the NHS transparency in outcomes framework set out in the recent NHS White Paper. We want to hear the views of health care professionals, patients, carers, hon. Members and the public on what measures we should seek with regard to best outcomes and ensuring that patients have the right experiences in the NHS. I would certainly like TNA UK to contribute its thoughts on that, because that would help the shaping of the kind of outcome agenda that we want to see.

Fourthly, I will meet the Neurological Alliance, an umbrella group representing more than 50 neurological charities and organisations, to discuss the way forward on long-term conditions more generally. I understand that TNA UK is part of this group, so I hope that it will make its views known in the alliance so that they can form part of our discussions.

I join the hon. Gentleman in thanking third sector organisations such as TNA UK, which he rightly praised, for their work in raising patient awareness. On average, someone with chronic pain will have direct contact with a health professional for only about three hours a year; they care for themselves for the rest of the time. It is therefore extremely important for patients to know about their condition and receive the support that they need to manage their pain. That will become ever more important as we broaden control through personal health budgets and offer patients greater choice and say over their treatment. Good information for patients is the key to unlocking those benefits. I should add that there is also useful information on the NHS Choices website, which discusses the diagnosis and treatment of the condition and puts patients directly in touch with TNA UK.

The hon. Gentleman asked what else TNA UK could do to raise awareness of the condition or to improve the position of sufferers. I have already described a number of initiatives on which we would warmly welcome input from TNA UK. If I may make a final suggestion, the Chronic Pain Policy Coalition is doing excellent work nationally and regionally to inform and shape policy. TNA UK has common cause with such groups, so they could helpfully join forces to make the case for better pain management throughout the country.

I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing the debate, and I am now aware of the pain and agony that the condition can bring. Although I am afraid that the Department of Health is not resourced to give equal attention to every individual condition, it is gratifying to know that organisations such as TNA UK are supporting patients and promoting greater awareness. I am keen for us to work with them, and with the hon. Gentleman, to continue improving the quality and effectiveness of treatment for those who suffer pain, and I believe that the White Paper provides useful impetus in that regard.

On a personal note, I wish the hon. Gentleman the very best. I am delighted to hear that his treatment was to his satisfaction, and I hope that it provides him with lasting relief from this distressing condition.

Question put and agreed to .7.25 pm. House adjourned.

A few observations: Trigeminal neuralgia is a very painful condition, but it is not as painful as cluster headaches/migraines, that used to be known as ‘suicide headaches’ because people killed themselves as a result of the pain, in the days before cluster migraines were controlled by Modern Medicine. I know a bit about cluster headaches because for some eight years (approx. 2003-2011) I suffered from them. Every Top Doc whom I consulted failed to diagnose them and NHS direct kept telling me to go to A&E because they were worried that I had meningitis. Every Doc knew that there was something very wrong but no-one would make a diagnosis or prescribe the appropriate medication. The only way that I ever gained any relief was by meeting someone else who suffered from the same condition who literally shared her tablets with me when she witnessed what was happening to me, which then enabled me to go to my GP and say ‘I want a prescription for sumatriptan please’.

It worked, but I had a lucky escape because after I began taking sumatriptan, Richard Tranter, a psychiatrist who formerly worked at the Hergest Unit, began arriving at my office at Bangor University telling me that I would ‘burn out’ and make myself ill if I did not stop work. I ignored his ‘advice’, told him that I loved my work and I had much that I wanted to publish. Tranter then told me that if I was to carry on working, he wanted to prescribe me Stelazine. Stelazine is a 1950s anti-psychotic that Gwynne and Dafydd dished out like Smarties. It can cause tardive dyskinesia, but some people do find it helpful in some circumstances. I wondered what the hell Tranter was on about, because not only had he arrived back in my life offering to Help after the mental health services had refused to provide all care after their attempt to imprison me in 2004 flopped, but I was in no way in need of Stelazine, although I was certainly stressed, being threatened and harassed by the Gang constantly. I continued to refuse Tranter’s generous offers of Stelazine and ignored his dire prognosis re the outcome If I Continued To Carry On Like This. In the end I told Tranter to piss off – after three more unlawful arrests at the hands of the Gang – because I was sick of all of them.

Some four years later an Angel in another part of the UK showed me his pharmacopoeia and the warnings in BOLD TEXT stating that Stelazine must in no circumstances ever be prescribed with sumatriptan because the combination is neurotoxic and will result in psychosis, brain damage or possibly death. Those warnings were in the literature that Richard Tranter had used when he did all that he could to persuade me to take that combination of drugs. Tranter is a psychopharmacologist who emigrated to New Zealand after Operation Pallial was launched; he now has a Chair in New Zealand.

Miranda and Gordon know about all this, because the furious e mails that I was exchanging with Tranter and his colleagues over the matter until approx. 2010 were hacked and passed to Miranda, Gordon etc. They will also have read the e mail to me from a Prof of Neurology based at Bangor University at the time, American Bob, who was so eminent that he was headhunted by Bangor and paid a fortune to come to the UK; an admin job was created for  his wife Betsy as part of the package. American Bob was a friend of Tranter’s, who commiserated with me re the cluster headaches – so American Bob accepted that they were happening – and recommended a neurologist called Martin Bracewell to me. Bracewell worked for the NW Wales NHS Trust and at the Walton Centre. An earlier e mail to American Bob explained that the difficulties between the NW Wales NHS Trust and I were so great that I could not accept a referral to a neurologist who worked for them…

In the end my cluster headaches gradually eased. I have since found out that they were related to a spinal injury I sustained when I was 20, that D.G.E. Wood knew would result in cluster headaches years later but failed to tell me this. The X-ray taken at the C&A Hospital in 1983 showed the warning signs…

See eg. ‘Why So Many Die So Early’ and ‘A Possible Reason For All Those Prescriptions’ and other posts for accounts of other patients who suffered harm or who’s lives were placed at risk by Richard Tranter and his colleagues.

As for shingles, Jim Fitzpatrick might be interested to know that for some five years, as he died slowly and painfully in the Care of the Top Docs in Somerset, my father suffered from repeated attacks of shingles. They were, by his own account, far worse than the effects of the myeloma that was very slowly killing him. I knew that shingles are bad, even these days, but I couldn’t understand why the care of shingles had not advanced since the 1950s. The only pain relief that he was offered was morphine, from the notorious Dr Matthews at Nether Stowey. Father refused to take it on the grounds that morphine can kill you if you take too much. Which it can and I noticed that there had been no guidance at all given to father as to what would be a safe dose. Just a good old fashioned bottle of morphine containing enough to kill someone.

The reason that father found shingles so unbearable wasn’t simply the shingles pain. It was because the shingles covered his head and left his head literally covered in huge weeping sores. Matthews relied on another member of the family who had worked as an Angel until 1957 to dress father’s head. So bandages/dressings were applied, which would become soaked with pus and then have to be removed after a couple of days, after having stuck firmly to father’s head. It was that which caused father so much agony that people were leaving the house rather than listen to him screaming. That was indeed the standard way of dressing shingles in the 1950s.

When I told third parties what was happening, one of them, an Angel with experience er since the 1950s, commented that for years now, special dressings have been available for the sort of condition that father suffered from, that do not involve ripping off bandages stuck to scalp wounds; this person could not understand why no-one at all among the Docs and Angels treating father had not told him about this.

I didn’t see that much of father when he was at his worst. I had been arrested on the perjury of Alun Davies and the Angels, detained in a locked ward and told that if father died, I could attend his funeral but would have to be handcuffed to an Angel and a police officer.

Should I need my leg amputating in the future, I’ll ask Brown to do it with his chainsaw before I swig three bottles of whisky. It’s what was done before anaesthetics were available and as a medical student in Glasgow in the 1950s, R.D. Laing witnessed an amputation under whisky, on a man who could not tolerate a general anaesthetic. It’ll be far better than anything that the sadistic, murdering Top Docs have on offer in the 21st century for those who have spilt the pints of a Royal Lobotomist and his gang of paedophiles.

In June 1990 Pete [Marshall] was appointed Regional Secretary for the new COHSE London region, but on appointment stated in typical style that his best job was “renting deck chairs out on Bournemouth beach”.

May 1990: High Court case in Cardiff over which Sir Malcolm Pill presided – Pill of Gray’s Inn – brought against me by Gwynedd Health Authority. A dodgy deal was done between the barristers, Ian Murphy, acting for me and Crispin Masterman, acting for Gwynedd HA. After the case, the bent Welsh Office lawyer Andrew Park rang Alun Davies, then followed up with a letter, devising yet another Cunning Plan to have me banged up. See ‘More Antonin Artaud’.

Sir Peter Morrison was appointed as Thatch’s PPS on 23 July 1990, which coincided with fabricated evidence against me provided on the orders of Andrew Park. See ‘The Bitterest Pill’.

At some point between June and Oct 1990 there was another case against me at Cardiff High Court brought by Gwynedd HA before Justice Cocklecarrot with added Cocklecarrot’s jokes of a Mandy Rice-Davies nature. Jeff Crowther was the only witness called to give evidence; it is highly likely that on that occasion the Gang had asked for an order to have me incarcerated at Brenda’s pleasure but they didn’t get it as discussed in ‘More Antonin Artaud’ and the comments following that post… All documentation re that case is missing…

Alison and Graham, two social workers employed by Somerset County Council, had a business arrangement with the Bridgy contingent at the time…

After the creation of UNISON in 1993, Pete struggled with the new channels of accountability, famously denouncing the wrong right winger in Labour Briefing, earning him a famous but hilarious rebuke from Rodney Bickerstaffe General Secretary.

Pete turned down the opportunity to head up health in the capital and moved into UNISON’s energy sector finally moving back to the West Midlands, close to beloved football club, Birmingham City.

As the ambulance service had been initially part of Local Government( London County Council) most staff in London were members of NUPE 70-80%. However COHSE had from 1964 built up a small but significant membership based around the leadership of Bill Dunn at Hanwell, West London (The other key COHSE branch being at Park Royal)

Hanwell and Park Royal will have been hotspots re Gwynne, Dafydd et al for some reason and Bill Dunn will have had the dirt on someone…

The Ambulance dispute started October 1989 – March 1990 and lasted six months

In Feb 1990, Gwynedd County Council obtained their injunction against me on the grounds that the Danger I presented to their social workers. Perjury had been committed by both social workers, Jackie Brandt and Keith Fearns of the Arfon CMHT, who gave evidence. One of them had met me at most two or three times and in the autumn of 1986 had unlawfully detained me and refused to answer my questions or respond to my complaint subsequently. The other social worker had never met me. The application was heard in the High Court in Leeds, although all parties involved lived/worked in Gwynedd. See ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’ and ‘The Bitterest Pill’.

A Resident of Leeds who Did So Much For The NHS in Leeds and elsewhere:

Sir John Kay issued the injunction. I have provided details of John  Kay in previous posts. Kay grew up near  Liverpool, was educated at Denstone College and subsequently studied Christ’s College, Cambridge. Kay read for the Bar while teaching at a prep school in Hertfordshire and was called by Gray’s Inn in 1968, thus joining Gwynne and Dafydd’s friend Sir William Mars-Jones there. Michael Mansfield and St Helena are also members of Gray’s Inn. John Kay was subsequently a Tutor in Law at Liverpool University for a year while starting out as a general common law barrister on the Northern Circuit, based at Chambers in Liverpool.

Kay was appointed a Recorder in 1982, took Silk in 1984 and was approved to sit as a Deputy High Court judge in 1989. He was appointed to the High Court bench in 1992, assigned to the Queen’s Bench Division, and was Presiding Judge on the Northern Circuit from 1994 to 1997 before being promoted to the Court of Appeal in 2000, the year that the Waterhouse Report was published.

See the source image

Kay was Presiding Judge on the Northern Circuit in Nov 1994 when Dafydd obtained a High Court injunction against F and I on the basis of F having blown a raspberry down the phone at him some months previously, some ludicrous statements that Dafydd made about his own anus and the allegation that I had thrown a brick through his glass door. By the time that Dafydd swore that affidavit, Dafydd, the police and the MDU, who acted for Dafydd, knew that I had not thrown the brick and that the brick had been planted on the orders of Dafydd.

John Kay was a rugby enthusiast who played for Waterloo Rugby Club in his youth and later became Club President. John Kay had two daughters and a son, Ben, who was part of the victorious 2003 Rugby World Cup squad. Sir John Kay’s daughter Amanda was appointed to the High Court in 2017.

Kay spent his career on the Northern Circuit, as did many other members of the Gang, including Geraint Morgan QC, the bent barrister who served as the Tory MP for Denbigh, 1959-83. George Carman worked on the Northern Circuit before he relocated to London following his successful defence of Mr Thrope in 1979.

The libcom.org website also published content related to the 1989-90 ambulance workers dispute:

The Red Menace, Number 5, January 1990. Taken from the Practical History website.

Article attempting to link up the 1989-1990 London ambulance workers’ dispute with that of council, construction and hospital workers.

Now the police won’t just put you in hospital, they’ll drive you there too
As we go to press the ambulance dispute is in its 4th month. Having escalated their action from an overtime ban to answering only 999 and emergency calls, some crews (notably those in London) are now refusing to answer any calls from central control. They are dealing only with emergency calls made directly to stations by the public or hospitals. In various parts of the country crews have been suspended and the army and the police are running a limited ambulance service.

Clearly it is necessary for ambulance workers to escalate their own action. Support is growing for an all out strike: at Isleworth, Twickenham, and Feltham stations in West London crews are already on virtual strike, refusing to answer any calls official or unofficial. With management cutting off phones to stations (as they have done in Dorset and Birmingham), other stations may have little choice but to follow suit. The real key to winning this dispute though is all out action by other groups of workers too.

The potential for this has been shown already. On December 6th, council workers (in Hackney and Hammersmith), construction workers (including 300 steel erectors on the Canary Wharf site) and hospital workers (at the Elizabeth Garret Anderson in Soho) were among those in London who took unofficial strike action for the day in support of the ambulance crews.

Wimmin’s Champ Wendy Savage may well have been involved in co-ordinating some of that support. Savage was high profile re her support for the Labour Party at the time and led the ‘Keep Our NHS Public’ campaign. See previous posts, including ‘Uncle Harry’s Friends…’ Savage was also wheeled out to save the bacon of the Elizabeth Garret Anderson Hospital whenever Camden Borough Council threatened to Cut It. See previous posts…

Previously bus workers at Hanwell garage (West London) and workers at Homerton and St Bartholomew’s hospitals took token action.

Bart’s was another London hospital facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring, with strong links to Gwynne and Dafydd. Lord Snowdon and everything to do with him rendered Bart’s bullet proof. Snowdon’s grandfather Robert Armstrong Jones was a psychiatrist who grew up in north Wales, studied at UCNW and then at Bart’s. He kept a country home near Caernarfon, as well as a London residence and Snowdon stayed there as a boy and for PR purposes after he married Ma’am Darling. Snowdon used the services of Dafydd and Gwynne…

Snowdon’s father Ronald Armstrong-Jones was a barrister – a member of Inner Temple, like Mr Thrope and the Havers family who were so helpful to Gwynne, Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring – who was a Governor of Bart’s. Many docs working in north Wales, including at the C&A Hospital, trained at Bart’s. In the late 1980s, Bart’s was earmarked for closure by the Gov’t and there was a robust campaign to prevent closure. The campaign won the day and more recently Bart’s, as well as Savage’s former place of work the London Hospital were completely rebuilt and are now big shiny structures in London. Bart’s and the London were two institutions that are soaked with the blood of Gwynne and Dafydd’s victims; I suspect that was the muscle that ensured that those hospitals were expanded and rebuilt. The new developments were PFI initiatives and are costing the NHS so much in repayments that they are in crisis and the NHS cannot afford to staff them.

Wimmin’s Champ Wendy, Uncle Harry and the rest of the crowd all knew what a bum deal the redevelopment of the London and Bart’s was, but they’re a load of troughing hypocrites who wanted posh new buildings and knew that they’d be retired by the time that the deals imploded, so they didn’t worry. See previous posts…

But then Peter Hain knew how much trouble that PFI hospital in Neath – the only PFI hospital in Wales – would lead to.

Ronald Armstrong-Jones was a Lord Chancellor’s visitor ie. a member of the inspectorate that ensured Gwynne and Dafydd’s prisoners in Denbigh were Cared For Properly and that the Law Wasn’t Abused. Ronald retired from that role in 1963, on the advice of his own Top Doc, as the travelling would exhaust the poor dear. Very wise, the Profumo Affair was going to explode very soon and an in-law of Brenda’s couldn’t afford to be caught with his trousers down, even if Dafydd was on a daily basis. See previous posts for further info on the Armstrong-Jones tribe and ‘Holding The Country To Ransom – Part II’ for the extraordinary events that threw the drug and rent boy-using bisexual Tony Armstrong-Jones and Ma’am Darling together…

Ronald Armstrong-Jones died on 27 Jan 1966; he was followed Into A Better Place by Lord Bill Astor on 7 March 1966; then Dorothy Macmillan joined them in that Golden Cliveden In The Sky on 21 May 1966. Dafydd was named by ‘The Times’ as being at the centre of a patient abuse and neglect scandal weeks later…

Things being what they are re the Gang, Eric Sunderland, who was Called Home To Wales in 1984 to rescue the Gang when Brown and I refused to withdraw our complaint about Gwynne, was part of the Reinforcements back in the early 1960s. Eric grew up in Carmarthenshire, went to Abersytwyth and then UCL, before spending his career at Durham University, until returning to Wales in May 1984. Lord John Walton reigned over Durham as well as Newcastle University. The bonus ball was that Miranda’s dad lectured at Durham University; Miranda who after training as a barrister with George Carman and living in Wandsworth on the turf of the St George’s/Springfield ring…

Cherie remained in Carman’s Chambers until 1988.

Here’s Cherie with a celeb friend of Geoffrey Chamberlain’s:

Geoffrey was friends with someone else who would be very contemptuous of the pair above, but they helped keep her and Geoffrey out of prison, so she won’t have let on that she considered them a pair of brainless trollops:

I worked for Wendy’s mate Geoffrey between May 1989 and Jan 1991, although I didn’t return to St George’s to waste my time with Wendy’s vile, insane, criminal friends after I was arrested on the basis of the perjury of their mates in north Wales in Dec 1990.

See the source image

Take a look at the dates; when I worked with Wendy’s friends, Roger Poole conducted those Complex Negotiations Skilfully, the Strike Woz Won (except that it wasn’t, Ken Clarke and Hector MacKenzie sold them down the river), but most importantly for Wendy, Chamberlain, John Marks, Uncle Harry et al, they got rid of Thatch! They were landed with John Major instead who was no better, but they really loathed Thatch.

As Lord Hailsham told Wendy when she starred on ‘Any Questions’, ‘So my dear Wendy, don’t diagnose a problem when there isn’t one’. The problem wasn’t so much the Tories as you and your criminal mates Wendy you raddled old bag, the BMA were, as you know, responsible for Ted Heath winning in 1970 because they wanted to give Richard Crossman a kick and show him who was boss (see previous posts); the Grocer appointed Thatch as his Education Secretary who knew about the rumpus in Somerset re Edward du Cann, so Thatch went down there and had lunch…

Never mind Wendy, God knows how many people died, the Chicago School style of capitalism took root in the UK, but you’ve enjoyed a high salary, getting pissed, shagging around and being touted as a Wimmin’s Champ and now that you’ve been exposed on this blog, you’ve let your registration with the GMC lapse, so you’re off of the Medical Register and even if anyone who has been damaged by you does persuade the moribund old criminals at the GMC that they should take action against you, by GMC rules they can’t. But then you sat on the GMC anyway didn’t you? Oh just do us a favour and fuck off and take Uncle Harry’s dreadful goofy nephew with you. In fact take both of Uncle Harry’s nephews with you.

BTW Wendy, your medical students swore blind that in a lecture in the early 1980s, you literally got your tits out. Is that true and is that why the students used to be very rude about you? Is that what the carefully worded phrases re the allegations about your ‘sexual conduct’ that appeared in the press when your battle with the authorities at the London Hospital was at its height in the mid 1980s were about? Because whatever you were up to, no-one dared publish it. But then you were a mate of Dafydd’s so who knows what was going on…

‘The Male Medical Establishment were so vindictive that even after Mrs Savage was cleared of professional incompetence, the London Hospital refused to reinstate her teaching commitments’.

The students will have been quite glad about that.

In addition many other workers have been involved in demonstrating, collecting money and organising ambulance support groups. Ambulance people have also made links with strikers elsewhere- in Luton they joined car workers’ picket lines at Vauxhall. The main obstacle to any escalation of the dispute is the unions. Having originally recommended acceptance of the initial 6.5% pay offer, their main tactic has been to focus activity around useless petitions and calls for arbitration (i.e. a negotiated deal falling well short of the 11.4% rise demanded). Already they have publicly abandoned demands for a cut in the working week and longer holidays.

Roger Poole, chief union negotiator, has bluntly stated: “we don’t want solidarity strikes from other workers”.

That was probably because the Tories would have been far easily able to label the strikers as a Rabble if they were not Angels and ambulance workers.

See the source image

In November the National Union of Public Employees (NUPE) even refused to allow any non-ambulance workers on a demonstration in Manchester, and they are hoping to do the same on the TUC-sponsored march on January 13th. At all sorts of union meetings workers have been told that solidarity can’t be discussed as it constitutes illegal secondary action. For instance at the London Hospital (Whitechapel), NUPE branch officials refused to allow an ambulance worker to speak at a meeting of other health workers.

See the source image

Those who still believe that they can rely on the unions for support should remember what happened when ambulance workers tried to speak to NUPE leader Rodney Bickerstaffe at the TUC (Trades Union Congress) headquarters: he called security guards to throw them out. Not daring to be seen to do nothing however NUPE have called a ‘day of action’ to coincide with the January 13th demo – on a Saturday! And union leaders are also considering asking other workers to stage periods of silence (lasting between 5 and 15 minutes) to show their support!

Ambulance crews and their supporters need to talk directly to other workers and argue that they should strike, not just out of sympathy but in their own interests.

See the source image

At Canary Wharf, ambulance workers not only spoke to steel erectors before December 6th but also turned up on the day to make sure they stood by their decision to strike; for construction workers the lack of a decent ambulance service on the streets is a clear threat to their health and safety. On the same day Hammersmith council workers linked up support for the ambulance crews with support for the’ council’s own striking nursery workers. It is this sort of activity that could lay the groundwork for a united strike movement around all our needs.

Alan Fisher, NUPE and the New Reformism

(March 1977)

From International Socialism (1st series), No.96, March 1977, pp.9-13.
Transcribed & marked up by Einde O’ Callaghan for the Encyclopaedia of Trotskyism On-Line (ETOL).

The ferment among public sector workers hit by the cuts has thrust Alan Fisher and NUPE into the centre of the stage. In May NUPE’s biennial conference meets with its agenda loaded down with motions attacking the Social Contract and calling for greater union democracy These issues will also be raised by two Right to Work Candidates standing in the NUPE Executive elections taking place over the next month or so. Alex Callinicos analyses the politics and the record of Fisher and union he leads.


ALAN FISHER of the National Union of Public Employees (NUPE) is the current darling of the reformist left. NUPE is seen to be in the forefront of the battle against the cuts, providing the backbone of the November 17 demonstration last year and launching a new series of local protests this spring.

NUPE has grown rapidly as a result of this policy. In the eighteen months from January 1975 to June-1976, NUPE gained 112,980 new members. This was an increase of 22 per cent and took the union to a total of 620,806 members. NUPE is now the fifth largest union affiliated to the TUC.

Alongside this, Fisher has increased his personal standing. The CP and the Broad Left, who five years ago adulated Jack Jones; today regard Fisher as the rising star. At the 17 November rally the Tribunite Norman Atkinson, Treasurer of the Labour Party, was loudly heckled. Fisher was heard in rapt silence and cheered to the echo. The emergence of Fisher and NUPE is a major development in the trade union movement. In this article we will try to show how and why this took place and how it affects our tactics in the fight against the Social Contract and the cuts.

How NUPE was built.

NUPE BEGAN life as the London County Council Employees’ Protection Society in 1888. For nearly fifty years it struggled on mostly in London and by 1934 had a grand total of 13,000 members. In 1934 Bryn Roberts was appointed General Secretary. This was a turning point for the Union. Roberts was to dominate the Union until his retirement in 1962 and preside over its transformation into a major force. Roberts had ambitious plans. He told the 1936 Conference:

My mind is set towards the 100,000 membership mark for this Union. My mind is set towards raising the wages and conditions of public employees from the low and capitalistic levels upon which they are now based. My mind is set towards creating our own NUPE group of Members of Parliament in order to be on an equal footing with the other Unions within the service.

The problems were enormous. The potential membership was scattered across the country with 9,000 different authorities employing over 1 million workers, often only a tiny handful in remote rural areas. There was also tough competition from the big general unions, the TGWU and the NUGMW (now GMWU), who were powerfully entrenched among manual workers in the big urban centres.

Roberts thrust the union into an all-out recruitment campaign, beginning with the underpaid County Council roadmen. NUPE drew up and campaigned for a Roadmen’s Charter. Its demands were to be implemented not as a result of strike action but through an extension of the Whitly scheme. This system of National Joint Councils (NJC’s) of employers and unions in the public sector had been proposed in 1918 but never fully implemented. NUPE called for an NJC for all local government services. As Robert’s biographer puts it:

The demand for machinery for the national determination of wages and other conditions of service became the pivot around which the whole of NUPE’S programme turned.

Roberts’ campaigning strategy payed off. The Roadmen won an NJC in 1941 and by 1947 their wages were 100 per cent above 1938 levels. NUPE grew rapidly: by 1939 it claimed 50,000 members, by 1945 the goal set by Roberts had been reached – NUPE had just over 105,000 members. The massive expansion of the welfare state after the war gave further opportunities for union growth and by 1955 NUPE, with 200,000 members, was in the big league as the ninth largest union in the TUC.

The mushroom growth of NUPE had been achieved throughout by campaigns of pressure and publicity and not by strike action. It was concentrated throughout on winning central negotiations through NJC’s. NUPE had taken its modern form.

NUPE has important differences from other Unions organising in the public sector. Firstly, it is above all a manual workers’ union, particularly in local government and the hospitals. This sets it apart from white-collar unions like NALGO, NUT, CPS A etc. which are also recruited exclusively from the public sector. NUPE is far closer to the mainstream of the British labour movement in that it does not have to fight against professionalism, a hierarchical jobs ladder etc.. On the other hand, unlike the TGWU and the GMWU, NUPE membership is concentrated solely in the public sector. Thus what happens there is not one issue among many but a matter of life and death for NUPE. The combination of these factors mean that NUPE is forced to play the key role in anti-cuts activity.

Power in NUPE

NUPE IS a very undemocratic union. The authors of a study of the union’s structure specially commissioned by NUPE put it very tactfully:

To the outsider, one of the most striking characteristics of NUPE is the key role played in the organisation by its full time officials. Once again, this has a great deal to do with the way the union was built. Roberts ruled NUPE supreme. In 1937 he persuaded the conference to move from yearly to two-yearly conferences. The number of full time officials grew rapidly, from 5 in 1934 to 25 in 1936 to 45 in 1954. These officials were accountable solely to Roberts, who decided their pay and appointment individually. Whenever the rank and file stepped out of line they were stamped on hard. In 1951 Roberts, not usually a ‘cold war warrior’, expelled the three Communist leaders of a 10-day unofficial strike in Edinburgh Corporation.

The structure which Roberts built outlived him. Both the biennial Conference, the ‘supreme government of the Union’, and the lay Executive Council (EC) which meets quarterly, theoretically to run NUPE between conferences, are under the General Secretary’s thumb.

The General Secretary stands at the head of a hierarchy of full-time officials, 105 of them in 1975, who run the union at Division and Area level. None of these officials are elected; all, including the General Secretary, are appointed by the EC. The full-timers tend to be appointed from outside the membership and vacant posts are not advertised in the union journal Public Employee. The salaries of these officials are secret but they probably run between £3,000 and £5,000; Fisher’s salary is estimated at between £8,000 and £10,000. On top of that there are various perks like free cars and cheap mortgages.

The post of General Secretary is inherited rather than decided by vote. Roberts retired in 1962 and was replaced by Sydney Hill, whom he had made national officer in 1946 and who acted as General Secretary during Roberts long illness from 1961. One of Hill’s first acts was to appoint Alan Fisher as Assistant General Secretary. Fisher had been Hill’s blue-eyed boy since he became a clerical assistant for the Union in 1938. When Hill retired in 1968 Fisher succeeded him as General Secretary. He had been a full-time employee (except for a war time break) since the age of 17 and had spent 30 years inside the union’s full-time apparatus.

When elections do take place, as in the case of the EC, they are far from democratic. Each branch votes as a ‘block’. Under this system, those attending the branch meeting cast their votes. These votes are then counted by the branch secretary and the winning candidate receives a vote equal to the total strength of the whole branch.

Added to this is the lack of rank-and-file involvement at the branch level. A recent survey of the union revealed that 67 per cent of branches were attended by 5 per cent or less of their members and 13 per cent rarely or never met. Branches receive a commission of 12½ per cent of membership subscriptions; this can add up to quite a big branch, so there is an inbuilt pressure towards secretaries wanting a large and unwieldy branch.

However, the low level of rank-and-file involvement does not arise only from the undemocratic structure. The centralised bargaining structure and the emphasis on protest campaigns rather than strike action meant that in the 1950’s and 1960’s NUPE did not develop the strong shop-steward organisations which grew up in other areas. The officials settled most things, and the union was very remote from the average member.

Moreover, the areas in which NUPE recruits are ones of high labour turnover, particularly among women workers, many of whom are classified as part-time: ‘no fewer than 81 per cent in local government and 50 per cent in the National Health Service are classified as part time (women workers – AC) … labour turnover is, of course, reflected in membership turnover. For example, for the last quarter of 1973 one large branch had to recruit 9 per cent new members in order to register a 1.5 per cent net increase in branch membership.’ Even a much more democratic union than NUPE would have difficulty in involving the rank-and-file in these conditions.

Enter the Rank and File: 1969-74

THE EMERGENCE of government-imposed incomes policies in the 1960’s began to transform NUPE. Incomes policies have hit public sector workers hardest because it is far easier for the government to enforce guidelines for their own employees and because the majority of these workers lack traditions of strong organisation. NUPE members were hit hard by the freeze imposed by the 1964-70 Labour government and in 1967 the NUPE Conference, after giving Wilson a standing ovation, almost unanimously passed a resolution condemning the wage freeze.

In 1969 the rank-and-file turned words into deeds when the London dustmen smashed through the freeze with a militant unofficial strike. Fisher was as surprised as anyone, but he learnt the lesson quickly. In 1970, with a Tory government in office, the dustmen were in action again, this time officially, and the final settlement met many of their demands.

By December 1972 it was the turn of the hospital ancillary workers. The leadership of the four unions involved – NUPE, TGWU, GMWU, and COHSE – submitted a claim clearly hoping to settle within the limit laid down by the Tory incomes policy.

The rank and file thought differently. On October 2 Bristol and Gloucester Hospitals came out on unofficial strike for £8. On December 13, the day the agreement expired, 180,000 ancillary workers took part in demonstrations across the country. Fisher was forced to ballot the membership. Out of 446 branches, 45 did not vote. 352 voted for militant action and of these 207 voted for total strike.

The NUPE leadership opted for selective strikes from March 1st. It was left to the rank and file to try to spread and co-ordinate the strikes against the open sabotage of the officials. The response was magnificent, despite the press propaganda about the danger to patients. By March 14 299 hospitals were on strike. A group of workers without previous traditions had demonstrated fantastic initiative and militancy.

Unfortunately, the strength built up during the strike was not used to win it. Fisher concentrated on a policy of ‘saving our strength’ (for what?) and trying to persuade the Tory government that hospital workers were ‘a special case’. He was aided by the other TUC leaders who sabotaged attempts to organise solidarity action. On April 13 Fisher settled for the original offer plus a small concession on equal pay.

The 1973 claim saw an even greater success for the tactics of divide and rule. Fisher skilfully played off hospital workers and local government workers by separating their claims and stressing the dangers of isolation from the movement as a whole. The offers, well within ‘Phase Three’, were accepted without a fight.

As an alternative route out of the low pay trap Fisher pushed bonus schemes. These offered more pay in return for higher productivity and reduced manning levels and thus seemed a way of increasing pay without a stand-up fight over incomes policy.

Here, however, Fisher’s plans were set back by the new mood in the rank-and-file. The May 1973 conference showed a marked swing to the left and Fisher had the experience, unusual for a NUPE General Secretary, of being overruled by Conference. ‘Composite 14’ was passed, rejecting bonus schemes and explicitly stated that ‘existing schemes should be honoured only as long as they suit the members’.

Fisher is not the sort of man to let a little thing like a Conference decision stand in his way, and continued to push bonus schemes. Under pressure from the DHSS he wrote, on 30 October, to all members of NUPE’s organising staff:

I want you to take an initiative yourself, where this is possible, to see if more ancillary staff can be brought on to lead-in payments (to bonus schemes – AC) at an early date.

The whole of this revealing correspondence was published in full in Hospital Worker, the excellent rank-and-file newspaper which was born out of the 1973 strike. There were a number of local fights against bonus schemes. Nevertheless, Fisher persisted and in 1975 was able to force bonus schemes through the conference.

In the meantime, Fisher had moved to the right. In the summer of 1974 the hospital nurses began strike action against appalling wages and conditions. This time, with a Labour Government in office, Fisher publicly attacked COHSE for calling strike action and bent every effort to avoid embarrassing the Labour Government.

Containing the Rank and File: the 1975 Reorganistion

THIS WAVE of action had, however, changed NUPE irrevocably. One indication was the growth of shop stewards’ organisation. These were only officially recognised in local government in 1969 and in the NHS in 1971, but the strikes and battles over bonus schemes led to their rapid growth:

In 1970, 39 per cent of branches had no Union stewards at all and 21 per cent had five or more. By 1974 only 11 per cent of branches reported having no Union Stewards and the proportion with five or more had grown to almost half (48 per cent).

Three sociologists from Warwick University were called in to inquire into the structure of the Union and recommended changes. Their ideas were largely implemented by a special conference in January 1975. Their report concentrated on the problem of integrating the new rank and file into the union’s structure and, not surprisingly, came down against the election of full-time officials.

Stewards were now to be automatically on the branch committees and the major conclusion was that there should continue to be separate organisational structures for the main groups, council and hospital workers. This reinforced existing practice with separate Branch, District and Area organisations for each group. The only official bodies on which stewards from the different sections can meet are: at one of the union’s 10 Divisional Councils or at National Conference. The officials, and Fisher in particular, are thus free to play off one group against another.

Women in NUPE

THERE ARE more women in NUPE than in any other British trade union. In 1968 they made up about half the total membership, by 1975 the 382,638 women members made up about two-thirds of the membership. Of the 301,000 new members signed up between 1968 and 1975, more than three-quarters were women. Fisher gave an ‘explanation’ for this at the 1975 Conference:

’Some people say it is because of the attractive officers we have got! … My lack of a haircut … is what is really doing it. (Laughter)’

NUPE’s record bears out Fisher’s sense of humour – it is a mixture of tokenistic gestures and effective male dominance. The union strikes all the fashionable poses, supporting the Working Women’s Charter, opposing the James White Bill, etc. Under the re-organisation 5 EC seats are reserved for women. But it is only very recently that two or three women full-timers have been appointed and there are few women branch secretaries and shop stewards. Those that there are tend to be treated as second-class citizens.

Fisher and the Social Contract

IN 1974 Fisher was co-author with Bernard Dix of a book entitled Low Pay and How to End It. This book outlines a strategy for ending low pay by means of a statutory minimum wage which is right in line with the NUPE tradition of national wage fixing and campaigning. But the book sets this goal in terms of a wider economic strategy of price controls, the extension of planning and public ownership and the establishment of a National Enterprise Board – a strategy very similar to Labour’s 1973 Manifesto. The book goes on to argue that this can only be achieved by an alliance between a Labour government and the trade unions. The conclusion is resolute:

’If the Labour Movement is to be serious in its intent to eliminate low pay it must act as a surgeon rather than a first aid attendant.’ [14]

Faced since 1974 with a Labour Government resolutely set on playing the role of first aid attendant the authors of this pamphlet have walked a tightrope. The nurses in 1974 suffered the first attack in the interests of maintaining the Labour Government and at the May 1975 conference Fisher succeeded in having a motion opposing the Social Contract thrown out. His line of attack was that the existing Social Contract had big faults but ‘we do not need to throw it out of the window. The strategy he advocated was to try to improve the terms of the bargain.

The next round of pay restraint showed the same fighting words and craven deeds. NUPE opposed the £6-limit agreed between the government and the TUC in July 1975 and after the February 1976 White Paper on public spending the EC issued a statement full of dark warnings. This was published as Time to Change Course. After the standard calls for an ‘alternative economic strategy’ the document became positively threatening:

The government must be made to understand that if there is no overall change in the direction of its economic policy an increasing number of trade unionists will question the desirability of continuing involvement in a wages policy that is manifestly weighted against the solution of Britain’s overall economic problems. If government policies create a situation where living standards continue to fall, and where the only way in which trade unions can exert a positive influence is through the collective bargaining process, unions will of necessity have to seek to protect their members’ interests by seeking wage increases at a level above what is acceptable to the Government.

Despite all these fine words, NUPE settled within the £6 limit.

The EC balloted the membership on phase 2 of the incomes policy before the June 1976 Special TUC in the following terms: The Executive Council recognise that the agreement on pay guidelines reached by the TUC General Council and the Government has the support of the majority of TUC affiliated unions and we therefore instruct the Union’s delegation to the special TUC to support that aspect of the General Council’s report.

The result of this loaded question in a branch ballot conducted on the iniquitous block voting system were, out of branches representing 60 per cent of the membership, 73.4 per cent in favour and 26.6 per cent against.

At the September 1976 TUC Conference NUPE organised a mass lobby against the cuts and sponsored a resolution attacking the totally unacceptable’ level of unemployment, but when the seamen voted to take industrial action against the pay policy Fisher lined up with the rest of the TUC General Council to bludgeon them back into line. In February 1977 Fisher was one of those union leaders urging a ‘wait and see’ policy with regard to yet another round of wage restraint, although the agenda for the NUPE Conference in May is packed with resolutions attacking the incomes policy.

NUPE and the fight against the cuts

DESPITE THIS sordid record on wages, NUPE has built its reputation for militancy in another field – the fight against the cuts. However, even this campaign remains firmly at the level of public protests – demonstrations, lobbies, rallies – rather than effective strike action. According to Public Employee:

’On industrial action the EC have told branches that extensive or prolonged all-out strikes could be counter productive by reducing wage costs and thus giving employers the savings in expenditure they are seeking.’

The alternative is presented as the ‘guerilla tactics’ of selective local stoppages which proved so disastrous during the 1973 ancillaries’ strike.

Where battles have developed – for example the Highland cleaners, the Canterbury dustmen, and East London Hospitals – the NUPE leadership has done little or nothing to publicise or support these strikes.

Once again the main focus has been on a campaign for an ‘alternative economic policy’ and on building up support for a left Labour government necessary to implement this strategy. The NUPE leadership has put a great deal of effort into boosting the union’s affiliated membership to the Labour Party from 150,000 to 400,000 and 500,000 and branches have been circularised on the importance of affiliating to the Constituency Labour Parties. Fisher claimed victory when at the September 1976 Labour Party Conference an anti-cuts resolution was passed overwhelmingly. The Labour government has gone cheerfully on cutting his members to pieces.

Even at the level of ideas, Fisher does not object to the argument underlying the propaganda in favour of the cuts that workers need to be shifted from the public sector to manufacturing industry. He simply claims that with the ‘alternative economic strategy’ there could be more jobs in manufacturing and more and better social services. The subordination of people’s needs to the demands of profit go unchallenged.

The New Reformism

FISHER CAN be said to be one of the leaders of a new reformist current on the British left. The politician most closely identified with it is Tony Benn, its most prominent theoretician is Stuart-Holland and it has influential backers on the new intellectual right wing of the Communist Party (David Purdy, Geoff Roberts, Jon Bloomfield, etc).

This group differs from the old Broad Left in union like the AUEW in a number of ways. In the first place, the social bases of the two groups are different. The strongholds of the Broad Left have been industrial unions like the AUEW and the NUM. The focus of the hew reformism is among the mass of public sector workers created by the expansion of the welfare state during the boom and now hit by the cuts. Moreover, the two groups’ origins are different. Hugh Scanlon, Jack Jones, Lawrence Daly emerged from the shopfloor as rank-and-file leaders. As we have seen Fisher has spent all his life on NUPE’s payroll. And where the Communist Party was a formative influence even on those Broad Left leaders who later abandoned it, the new reformists owe the CP nothing, although the two groups collaborate closely within the bureaucracy.

Of course, the Broad Left is in disarray as a result of their heroes’ support for wage restraint and the revival of the right wing in the AUEW. The importance of the new reformists for those, like the Communist Party, who base their strategy of shifting the Labour Party left and alliances with left officials is therefore central.

Within NUPE the CP and its allies do not operate as a separate Broad Left grouping fighting for its policies even to the extent that it does within the AUEW. It is completely integrated into Fisher’s apparatus. It is estimated that 25 per cent of the full-timers are CP members. Irene Swann, former chairman of the CP Executive Committee, sits on the NUPE Executive as one of the women’s members and chairs the Economic Committee, the kitchen cabinet that runs the union’s policy on wages and the cuts. However, because Fisher does not owe his position and his power to the CP in the way that Bob Wright will if he wins the AUEW presidential election, the muscle the CP can bring to bear within the NUPE bureaucracy is limited.

The rhetoric of the new reformists differs from that of the old Broad Left. For example, a cornerstone of the latter’s programme was opposition to all incomes policies under capitalism. Yet for Fisher and NUPE, their opposition is not to wage restraint as such, but to its implementation in the absence of an ‘alternative economic strategy’. The strategy itself represents a shift. Whereas the old Broad Left stressed .the need to extend nationalisation, their successors concentrate on import controls and state control of investment. Colin Sparks discusses the new reformists’ overall strategy for socialism elsewhere in this issue. It is simply worth noting here the sea change that is taking place within the reformist left in Britain today.

The prominence of Fisher and NUPE today arises from a number of factors. As we have seen, NUPE’s traditions fit it more for a prominent role in the campaign against the cuts than is true of other public sector unions in a situation where the effect of the cuts is to push even traditionally more right-wing unions like NALGO into rhetorical opposition to the government.

But the anti-cuts campaign has also involved a shift within NUPE. Fisher now adopts a much more stridently militant stance than was true a few years ago. The result is to alienate some sections of his traditional supporters – for example, he was shouted down recently at a Newham’s dustmen’s meeting.

In part, this represents a struggle for survival on NUPE’s part. The union has grown very fast in recent years. This growth has taken place particularly among previously unorganised women part-timers. The cuts campaign has been used to recruit: ‘FIGHT THE CUTS – JOIN NUPE’ said stickers on November 17. In order not simply to continue growing, but also to keep membership at its present level, Fisher needs to keep up the momentum of the anti-cuts campaign. Otherwise demoralisation particularly among new members will cut membership drastically as the cuts wipe out their jobs.

Unfortunately, as we have seen, NUPE’s strategy for fighting the cuts does not go beyond pressure politics aimed at forcing the Labour government to the left. Fisher refuses to contemplate concerted strike action against the cuts. His reason for this – the comparative economic weakness of public sector workers – is revealing. An appeal to other sections of workers with greater economic muscle – engineers, miners, electricians, etc. – would mean a policy of all-out opposition to the Social Contract. It would also mean challenging the TUC General Council and its support for the present government’s policies. It would mean taking the fight to Jack Jones’, and Hugh Scanlon’s and Joe Gormley’s, and Frank Chapple’s members. It would mean building a class-wide national rank-and-file movement against the Social Contract.

Of course, Fisher would do nothing of the kind. Apart from the political implications, once you accept the principle of appealing to union members over their leaders’ heads, the same principle can be applied to your own union, and Fisher is not that fond of trade union democracy.

The initiative for the national rank-and-file movement will have to come from revolutionary socialists, not reformists, old or new. However, success in building this movement will require a very positive response to even the very partial initiatives against the cuts made by Fisher and his like. They have already set in motion a movement that brought 80,000 workers onto the streets on November 17. It is up to us to take that movement further than Fisher would like it to go. We will be aided by the tremendous upsurge of rank-and-file militancy against the cuts in recent months. In doing so, there will be much scope for collaboration with Fisher on certain issues, none for reliance on him.


As any fule kno, one Famous UCNW graduate is Roger Whittaker, who, unlike Prof Eric Sunderland when the Gang sent up distress flares in 1984 after I refused to keep quiet about Gwynne, didn’t want to leave Old Durham Town.

Roger was always mentioned as a famous alumnus in the UCNW prospectus, but in 1984, Post-Gwynne, someone got Roger to return to UCNW at graduation to make a public appearance. Roger had died a death by then and we were rolling around laughing, but Roger was all over BBC News Wales and the local press. Roger was maxing out on his Kenyan roots and banging on about Kenyan traditions and doing a lot of whistling. It was all rather Rolf, Australia and the didgeridoo. I had no idea that Rolf and Roger were of Dafydd and Gwynedd until more recently.

In 1984 Roger fessed up to being academically hopeless, struggling through his degree and when the journos asked him if he felt a bit naff being a folkie instead of a biochemist, Roger said that he had no problem with it at all, because his whistling and music makes people happy, far more than biochemistry does.

So imagine my surprise when I listened to a radio interview with Roger, recorded and broadcast in 2014 – think Operation Pallial and the Macur Review – in which Roger provides a rather different account of his time at UCNW. By 2014, Roger had metamorphosed into a brilliant biochemist all those years ago, Keen To Be At The Cutting Edge Of Science and when he was at UCNW, We Were Learning About DNA And That, It Was All Being Discovered At The Time, So We Were Learning The New Technologies.

Readers, I can promise you that they weren’t; Crick and Watson only published their paper describing the double helix in 1953, there is no way that those two Cambridge princesses – who stole Rosalind Franklin’s work anyway as described in previous posts – popped up to UCNW to give a guest lecture to Roger Who???

Anyway, Roger explained during the radio interview that he was really torn between Becoming A Biochemist and he had this Really Brilliant Professor in Bangor, Sir Charles Evans and Sir Charles said ‘Roger, there is a job for you now in my Biochemistry Research Team, please take it, it’s yours’. Roger Loved Science And All That, but he realised that he really wanted to Make It In The Music World, it tore him apart but he had to tell Sir Charles Evans that he wanted To Give the Music A Go, so Sir Charles told him that he was very disappointed but That Job would be there for Roger for the Next Ten Years (being all cutting edge, nothing would have moved on after 10 years) if Roger chose to return to UCNW. Roger said no, Music Was His Love and Gee, He Made it Big!

See the source image

In Roger’s 2014 interview, he conflated the two different Charles Evans’s who worked at UCNW at the time. One was a Prof of Biochem, the other was Sir Charles, the Principal, a Liverpool-based neurosurgeon who was most famous for being part of the 1953 Everest Expedition with Edmund Hilary, Sherpa Tenzing etc…

Roger leads the listeners to believe that it was Charles the Everest Hero who begged him to work at UCNW…

Roger didn’t mention the most famous UCNW alumnus in that discipline of Roger’s (biochem and zoology) which is of course Bob Edwards, of Steptoe and Edwards, the First Test-Tube Baby fame, as discussed in previous posts. I wouldn’t be that surprised if Roger didn’t know about Bob Edwards, because in 2010, I was having a laugh with two friends from Bangor and we found Roger’s PR material on the internet. At that point Roger was being honest enough to say that he was academically very weak at school, began teacher training, withdrew and then flew across to Wales to do the biochem degree at UCNW because it was the only such degree that would accept him with such a weak academic record. Furthermore, Roger got a Third, after struggling for three years…

By the time that Roger was interviewed on the radio in 2014, Roger had also completed two years of a medicine degree as well, but he gave it up For The Love Of Music…

I don’t know who put Roger up to broadcasting such Barbara Cartland-esque nonsense in 2014, although I can guess who may have contributed, but can I just tell them that the lies are so silly, so transparent and so easily debunked that you probably shouldn’t have done it.

Oh get your heads around it Gang, no matter how many times you’ve forced me out of jobs and into destitution, until you’ve done that, I have always performed very well in whatever job I’ve secured until you arrived demanding that I be shoved out. I don’t need to tell silly lies about myself or litter the internet in photos of me with celebs, I just do whatever I’m doing and now I’m doing this blog.

Next time, don’t stake your futures on a Royal Lobotomist and his crazed sidekick, who in F’s words is ‘sexually depraved and in need of satisfaction’ and in bull elephant terms, permanently In Muste. Attenborough will know what that means, Dafydd’s testicles drip fluid and he tramples over anything in his way to gain access to the females. You really have made complete idiots of yourselves.

Don’t tell me; you’re all Missionaries and there’s this long lost tribe…

Roger Whittaker (born 22 March 1936) is a British singer-songwriter and musician, who was born in Nairobi to English parents. His music is an eclectic mix of folk music and popular songs in addition to radio airplay hits. He is best known for his baritone singing voice and trademark whistling ability as well as his guitar skills.

He is widely known for his version of “Wind Beneath My Wings” (1982), as well as his own compositions “Durham Town (The Leavin’)” (1969) and “I Don’t Believe in ‘If’ Anymore” (1970). American audiences are most familiar with his 1970 hit “New World in the Morning” and his 1975 hit “The Last Farewell“, the latter of which is his only single to hit the Billboard Hot 100 (it made the Top 20) and also hit No. 1 on the Adult Contemporary chart. His final top-charting hit was “Albany”, which scored No. 1 in West Germany in 1982.

Whittaker’s parents, Edward and Vi Whittaker, were from Staffordshire, England, where they owned and operated a grocery shop. His father was injured in a motorcycle accident and the family moved to a farm near Thika, Kenya, because of its warmer climate. His grandfather sang in various clubs and his father played the violin. Roger learned to play the guitar.

Upon completing his primary education, Whittaker was admitted to Prince of Wales School (now Nairobi School). Upon completing his high school education, Roger was called up for National Service and spent two years in the Kenya Regiment fighting the Mau Mau

FIGHTING THE MAU MAU!! So that is what Roger did, Bangor University haven’t advertised that along with Charles Evans (but which one??), the DNA And All That, the Music and the Whistling…

In 1956 Roger was demobilized and decided on a career in medicine. Was that in order to learn how the kill the Mau Mau as slowly and as painfully as possible?

Roger enrolled at the University of Cape Town in South Africa.

However, Roger left after 18 months and joined the Civil Service Education Dept as a teacher, following in his mother’s footsteps. In Roger’s radio interview, he mentioned that before his parents emigrated to Kenya, they held senior roles in Stafford, ‘Directors of Education’ and suchlike.

To further his teaching career, Whittaker moved to Britain in September 1959. For the next three years, he studied zoology, biochem and marine biology at UCNW and earned a BSc while singing in local clubs and released songs on Flexi discs included with the campus newspaper, the Bangor University Rag. That’s another porkie as well, because UCNW was never called Bangor University until well into the 1990s.

Shortly afterwards, Roger was signed to Fontana Records, which released his first professional single, “The Charge of the Light Brigade”, in 1962. (On the labels of the Fontana singles, he is billed as “Rog Whittaker”.) In the summer of 1962, Whittaker performed in Portrush, N Ireland. He achieved a breakthrough when he was signed to appear on an Ulster Television show called This and That. His second single was a cover of “Steel Men”, released in June 1962.

In 1966, Whittaker switched from Fontana to EMI‘s Columbia label, and was billed as Roger Whittaker from this point forward. His fourth single for the imprint was “Durham Town (The Leavin’)”, which in 1969 became Whittaker’s first UK Top 20 hit. Whittaker’s US label, RCA Victor, released the uptempo “New World in the Morning” in 1970, where it became a Top 20 hit in Billboard magazine’s Easy Listening chart.

That same year, Roger’s downbeat theme song “No Blade of Grass”, written for the film adaptation of that name that was sung during both the opening and ending titles, became his first film credit.

In the early 1970s, Whittaker took interest in the Nordic countries when he recorded the single “Where the Angels Tread (Änglamarken)” to the music of Evert Taube in 1972. In 1974 Roger performed at the Finnish Eurovision qualifications. The song “The Finnish Whistler” he performed became famous in Finland as it was used as a title music for the popular Finnish Yle television cooking programme Patakakkonen.

1975 saw EMI release “The Last Farewell“, a track from Roger’s 1971 New World in the Morning album. It became his biggest hit and a signature song, selling more than 11 million copies worldwide. In 1979, Whittaker wrote the song “Call My Name” which reached the final of the UK Eurovision selection, A Song For Europe, performed by Eleanor Keenan and coming third. Whittaker recorded the song himself and the single charted in several European countries. He established himself in country music with “I Love You Because” getting “into the lower reaches of the country chart” in late 1983.

Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, Whittaker had success in Germany with German language songs produced by Nick Munro. Unable to speak German, Whittaker sang the songs phonetically. He appeared on German and Danish TV several times, and was on the UK Top of the Pops show ten times in the 1970s. Whittaker’s German-language songs were not initially well received by the critics, who derided the songs as “meaningless folk music”. Notwithstanding, Whittaker released 25 albums in Germany and managed to grow a considerable fan base within the country, where he feels he has his most loyal fans, saying “The past few decades have been wonderful … My relationship with the German fans is great.”

In March 2006, Whittaker announced on his website that a 2007 Germany tour would be his last, and that he will limit future performances to “occasional concerts”. Now more fluent in German, he was seen singing and was interviewed in German on Danish TV in November 2008. In a 2014 interview, Whittaker reiterated that he had retired from touring in 2013, but claimed that he had written 18 new songs for an album and said “I still whistle very well”.

Before moving on to a career in music, Whittaker studied medicine and trained as a teacher in his native Kenya. Roger has said that he was “stupid, selfish and angry” in his youth and that the army “made a man” out of him. That’s what fighting the Mau Mau does for you.

On 1 April 1989, Whittaker’s parents (still living in Kenya) were subjected to a brutal attack by a gang of four men in which his mother was tortured for eight hours and his father was murdered. His mother moved back to England after the incident. Roger Whittaker said about the incident, “It will affect me for the rest of my life, but I believe we should all live without hate if we can”. I wonder if there was a possible motive behind that attack that was never made public? The Gang were getting very jumpy by April 1989; the net was closing in on Frank Beck and this was an international trafficking operation, so big that they thought it worth setting me up repeatedly until I was forced out of medical research completely. The last step being Chamberlain offering me that job with his team in April 1989.

Wendy Savage has worked in Kenya; as well as Nigeria, the US and New Zealand.

In 1964, Roger met Natalie O’Brien and they married in August. She has been Whittaker’s manager since 1989. They have five children: two sons and three daughters (Emily, Lauren, Jessica, Guy and Alexander). Jessica became a presenter on VH-1. They now have 11 grandchildren.

In 1986, Roger published his autobiography, So Far, So Good, co-written with his wife. The year in which Anne was killed by the Gang and I had Wood yelling at me to move far away from north Wales and ‘forget about everything that’s happened here’. Ollie Brooke was arrested and charged either in early 1986 or before and the Gang’s activities resulted in the London School of Tropical Medicine unlawfully withdrawing my place on an MSc weeks before I was due to begin, thus ensuring that I enrolled on the MSc at Hammersmith, an institution run by one of the Godfathers, Prof Hugh Bentall, who’s son Richard was working as a clin psy with Dafydd et al at UCNW and who had married into the Gang in north Wales in the form of the daughter of the Dean of Science at UCNW.

Ollie Brooke’s appearance after he was charged was at Kingston-upon-Thames Crown Court, the Kingston that was substantially owned by Hugh Bentall’s family… The Court was not told the truth about the extent of Ollie’s offending, or his academic status or research record and numerous letters from Top Docs testifying to the Excellent Character of this genius who had Helped So Many Children were received by the judge… It was all nonsense. See ‘Too Many Pills’.

F was framed and unlawfully imprisoned by the Gang in 1986. Alison Taylor was suspended from her job in Dec 1986.

In recent years Roger Whittaker had been living in Eyrecourt, County Galway, Ireland. He moved to France in 2012.

In 1976, Whittaker undertook his first tour of the United States. In 2003, he again toured Germany. After recovering from heart problems at the end of 2004, he started touring in Germany in 2005, and then in the UK from May to July.

In his career to date, Whittaker has earned over 250 silver, gold and platinum awards. He was part of a successful British team that won the annual Knokke Music Festival in Belgium and won the Press Prize as the personality of the festival. He was awarded a ‘Gold Badge Award’, from the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors (BASCA) in 1988 and earned a “Golden Tuning Fork” (Goldene Stimmgabel in Germany) in 1986, based on record sales and TV viewer votes.

Roger was the subject of This Is Your Life in 1982.

Roger Whittaker discography

Roger is not that prolific with the whistling and the guitar, so one wonders how he’s scooped so many awards…

Another Famous UCNW alumnus, but one who is not famous for whistling after turning his back on a brilliant career in DNA And All That, is Professor Sir Gareth Gwyn Roberts (16 May 1940-6 February 2007), a physicist who specialised in semiconductors and molecular electronics. Gareth Roberts was influential in British science policy through his Chairmanship of several academic bodies and his two reports on the future supply of scientists and how university research should be assessed. Gareth was knighted in 1997 for his services to Higher Education.

See the source image

Born in Penmaenmawr, Gwynedd (then Caernarvonshire), Roberts studied physics to PhD level at UCNW, graduating in 1964. Following a post at the New University of Ulster, Roberts was appointed Professor of Applied Physics at the University of Durham in 1976, where he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1984, the year that Eric Sunderland left Old Durham Town to take up the post of Principal of UCNW after that little local difficulty with Gwynne.

Gareth went back into industry in 1985 as Director of Research at Thorn EMI plc, and was appointed to a Visiting Professorship in the Department of Engineering Science at Oxford University and to a Fellowship at Brasenose College in 1986. The Professor of Cunning at Oxford University presented the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures in 1988.

Sir Gareth Roberts was a member of the PM’s Advisory Council on Science and Technology from July 1989 to July 1992.

Roberts was VC of the University of Sheffield from 1991 to 2000, an institution that came to be heavily influences by David Blunkett after years of Blunkett running the People’s Republic of South Yorkshire up there and then getting his feet under Miranda’s Cabinet table. Or indeed his bum on that famous Sofa that was Miranda’s Gov’t. See post ‘The Big Questions’. Blunkett never noticed that Sheffield was on the turf of Savile’s crime empire, so Blunkett will not have noticed that one of the biggest names in science, Sir Hans Krebs, had worked at Sheffield University. Sir Hans did of course discover the Kreb’s Cycle. Sir Hans had a son, John, who became an even bigger Giant of Science than his dad. John became Lord John Krebs. Lord Krebs was an ornithologist and zoologist who specialised in ethology and was rather obscure until he went to work at UCNW in the 1970s and discovered a paedophile ring.

See the source image

After discovering that paedophile ring at UCNW, John Krebs was appointed as a Lecturer at Oxford University, with a Fellowship at Wolfson College and then Pembroke College. KATIE _ that place at Pembroke

John Krebs was the Chief Executive of the Natural Environment Research Council 1994–1999 and in 1999 was knighted. Bangor University did remarkably well in terms of research funding from NERC during 1994-99, in particular Prof John Farrar, who taught me when I complained about Gwynne. Farrar either shagged students or yelled and swore at them. He was loathed by his colleagues who were all very wary of Farrar. Farrar particularly hated John Wilson, a lecturer who was shagging local schoolgirls. There was concern about Wilson’s activities on the part of Alison Bell, the technician in the Dept of Plant Biology, ‘because he’ll get caught and then he’ll be in trouble’. Alison was married to Adrian Bell, my tutor when I was at UCNW, who was mates with Dr D.G.E. Wood and I am told spread many of the poisonous rumours about me after I graduated. Alison was friendly with Stel Farrar, the student with whom Farrar had an affair and then appointed as his Research Assistant. Alison admitted that ‘it looked bad’.

Not half as bad as that Royal Lobotomist and the sex abuse Gang that he and Wood were running Alison, but then the solution to that particular problem was to slander and libel me.

Stel and Her John became no less unpleasant as the years went by and when Merfyn was appointed VC, Stel and Stel’s John – who by then had dumped her for a number of other women – caused many difficulties for Merfyn. See eg. ‘Lest We Forget’.

John Krebs, from 2000–2005, was the first Chairman of the British Food Standards Agency. On 15 February 2007, the House of Lords Appointments Commission anno
