Man Of Steel

While trawling for more information on the Jeremy Thorpe case recently, I found a clip from ‘Newsnight’, June 2018, in which Evan Davies interviewed David Steel about both Jeremy Thorpe and Cyril Smith. Steel adhered to his usual line of ‘I knew nuzzing…’ re Jeremy and stressed that as far as Cyril Smith went, there were only ‘allegations’ and that nothing has ever been proved. David Steel knows as well as I do that nothing was ever proved because police officers who interviewed Smith in the wake of serious complaints received visits from senior police officers and other state officials and were told to make no more inquiries. Then there was the D notice served by MI5 on one of the local newspapers covering Rochdale ordering the newspaper not to publish a word about Cyril Smith. There were also the actions of one David Steel who asked George Carman QC to use his influence to keep the Cyril Smith allegations out of the London-based media after one radical newspaper in Rochdale had published them, because Jeremy’s trial for conspiracy and incitement to kill was approaching and David Steel feared that there would be nothing left of the Liberal Party if Cyril’s Ugandan discussions with kids in care hit the press as well…

Please see post ‘My How Things Haven’t Changed’ for details of how many people were involved over a period of many years in keeping Thorpe’s penchant for casual gay encounters out of the media and, much more worryingly, his dreadful conduct toward Norman Scott and the associated smearing of Norman. My post ‘Only One Died’ details: the circumstances of Thorpe’s convenient marriage to Caroline Allpass after his years as a Bachelor, the Caroline who was very popular in Thorpe’s constituency and consolidated Thorpe’s political position, as well as the inexplicable car crash in which Caroline was killed; Thorpe’s second marriage to Marion Stern who’s previous husband the Earl of Harewood was Lilibet’s cousin; and the havoc which broke out at UCNW (Bangor University) as Norman’s allegations that Jeremy was his former gay lover who had tried to have him killed became public. ‘Private Eye’ had got hold of the story years previously but didn’t publish. Sir Ronnie Waterhouse, who was from an influential Liberal family in north Wales and who’s dad was a Liberal MP, was employed as a libel reader for ‘Private Eye’. In 1976, once Norman’s story became public and could no longer be dismissed as the rantings of a madman, George Thomas, another member of the Westminster Paedophile Ring, was appointed as Speaker of the House and Carlo was appointed Chancellor of UCNW. George Thomas was the UK’s most famous Methodist. Ronnie Waterhouse’s family were high profile Methodists and there was a strong association between Methodism and the Liberal Party which were dominant political and cultural forces in Wales throughout the 19th and first half of the 20th centuries; Methodism also exerted a strong influence in the west country and was associated with a certain contingent in the Labour Party as well as being a strong force in the north of England. Harold Wilson’s wife was the daughter of a Congregationalist Minister. See posts ‘There’s Methodism In This Madness’ and ‘Come, Friendly Bombs’.

 

At the end of the ‘Newsnight’ interview with David Steel, Evan Davies turned to another matter ie. the concerns over abortion rights in N Ireland and reminded the viewers that it was David Steel who paved the way for the 1967 Abortion Act with his Private Member’s Bill. David Steel gained a great deal of kudos from this which served him well throughout his entire political career. I have read the many articles which Steel wrote explaining why he felt that the 1967 Act was needed and I don’t disagree with any of his arguments. However, as with matters Jeremy and Cyril, there were matters in relation to abortion both before and after the 1967 Act on which David Steel remained silent when he should not have.

The Abortion Act 1967 legalised abortion on certain grounds by registered practitioners and regulated the tax-paid provision of this through the NHS. When Steel introduced his Private Member’s Bill, there was considerable opposition to abortion from within the medical establishment and not just from those Top Doctors who were Catholics. People supporting the Bill made much of the deaths and huge number of hospital beds which were occupied by women suffering from the dreadful consequences of unlawful abortions and the deaths. It was true that on some gynae wards nearly every bed was filled by a woman who was recovering from a botched illegal abortion. What received far less publicity was the number of Top Docs who were already providing abortions, against the law, both on the NHS or in return for a fee, in some cases virtually on demand and not only hidden away in ‘private clinics’.

Dr Ann Dally – who in the 1980s ended up in hot water for flogging class A drugs to rich patients via the assistance of the corrupt Home Office Drugs Branch mandarin Bing Spear who also helped Dafydd to remain in business – openly discussed how as a junior Top Doctor at Tommy’s pre-1967, she was always happy to help the consultants performing terminations. Dally’s account does not make it clear whether the patients at Tommy’s were paying; I suspect that they were, because there are other accounts of distressed teenaged rape victims being refused abortions at Tommy’s. Of course they were, it was illegal, as they were told in no uncertain terms. In her account of an Everyday Story of Tommy’s Abortionist Folk, Dally mentioned that their role model and hero was the Aberdeen Top Doctor Sir Dugald Baird. See post ‘Little Things Hitting Each Other’ for an account of Dally’s activities. Dally failed to explain that Sir Dugald presided over a situation of abortion on demand in the Aberdeen region as long ago as in the 1950s because Sir Dugald was committed to the idea of abortion ‘for socio-economic reasons’. Sir Dugald was fond of big families for wealthy people and he had a big family himself; Sir Dugald however was very keen on the notion that the poor should not be allowed to breed and he did his best to ensure that they did not. Sir Dugald flagrantly broke the law for years as he aborted foetuses gestating in low-income uteri but he continued unhindered, the wheels being oiled partly by his wife, a Pioneering Woman who was sitting on the medical committees in Aberdeen which oversaw Sir Dugald’s work.

Not only was Sir Dugald unopposed with regard to his law-breaking, but he also received funding from the MRC to establish the Aberdeen MRC Sociology Unit of which Professor Raymond Illsley was Director. As part of Sir Dugald Baird’s Obstetrics and Gynaecology empire, Illsley pursued what was euphemistically described as ‘social reproductive health research’. Illsley arrived to work in Aberdeen University in 1951. Years later, between 1972-75, the Home Office Research Unit, which evolved from a Rab Butler initiative, commissioned Illsley of Aberdeen’s Dept of Sociology to carry out research into ‘juvenile delinquency and the social control network’, investigating the role of social workers with young people in trouble with the law.  It was in the early 1970s that John Allen and Dafydd were busy expanding their empire of child prostitution and trafficking in north Wales. Raymond Illsley had direct links with researchers and politicians in London who were colluding with Dafydd and linked gangs. Nearly all the research commissioned by the Home Office Research Unit could not have been conducted without the researchers discovering the widespread abuse of kids and young people in state care or in criminal justice settings. All the researchers very wisely kept quiet about this which enabled some of them to become the biggest names in the UK in criminology or academic social work, where they continued to remain silent even after they were appointed as Gov’t advisers. See post ‘Rab, High Table and the Founding Fathers’.

Dr Death trained and worked at Tommy’s when they were happily performing illegal abortions on a grand scale there but then Dr Death also worked as research register to Dr William Sargant, a Tommy’s psychiatrist so mad and so dangerous who’s experiments killed so many of his patients that medicine is doing its best to forget that Sargant ever existed (see post ‘Dr Death’). Tommy’s was also facilitating organised abuse and the Westminster Paedophile Ring as long ago as the early 1960s and the Top Docs there had links with Dafydd and Drs Dannie and Wilfred Abse (see post ‘O Jones, O Jones’). Dannie and Wilfred were the brothers of the south Wales Labour MP Leo Abse and all three of the Abses were big mates of George Thomas, who was busy molesting kids even back then.

My post ‘The Bay Of Pigs Invasion’ discussed how Dr Death joined the Vauxhall branch of the Labour Party in 1960 two years before he qualified as a Top Doctor and joined the Fabian Society in the same year. Areas like Vauxhall had in the early 1960s already established a base for the procuring of disadvantaged young people to provide sexual services for much richer people, which became clear during and after the Profumo Affair. There was already such a trade in existence in Wales (see posts ‘Only One Died’ and ‘The Wind Of No Change’). Dr Death grew up in Plymouth, Devon, the county in which Jeremy Thorpe was an MP, Death’s parents were Welsh and he spent his summers in south Wales as a boy and then he worked as a Top Doctor at Tommy’s. Dr Death’s family in Wales were Methodists. He’d have known more about the Westminster Paedophile Ring than nearly anyone else on the planet. Dr Death very conveniently gave up his job at Tommy’s and rocked up as the Labour candidate for Plymouth – in Devon, the same county as Thorpe’s constituency, Plymouth being a city in which Michael Foot’s family wielded wielded considerable influence (see post ‘The Bay Of Pigs Invasion’) – just as Leo Abse began to prepare to design new legislation with regard to the care of children who were not cared for by their parents. That resulted in the Children Act 1975, which resulted in hundreds of children ending up in the hands of Dafydd and John Allen’s gang in north Wales. The Children Act got onto the statute books as a result of a Private Members Bill introduced by Dr Death. See post ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’.

 

The Top Docs and others behind this highly planned and co-ordinated effort were linked to Top Docs at the Dept of Psychiatry at St George’s Hospital which had developed ‘expertise’ in sexual problems, the foundation of which was laid by Dr Desmond Curran, to whom Norman Scott was referred in the 1960s when he crumbled under the strain of Jeremy’s activities. See post ‘My How Things Haven’t Changed’. By the 1970s, St George’s and the associated psychiatric unit, Springfield Hospital, were facilitating a huge paedophile ring in south London with links to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales and other gangs. See post ‘Meet The Gwerin!’.

 

David Steel’s Private Member’s Bill was backed by the Gov’t, who appointed the President of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, Sir John Peel, to Chair a medical advisory committee that reported in favour of passing the bill. One year after the 1967 Abortion Act was passed, John Allen took out the lease on the building which soon opened as the Bryn Alyn Community.

Sir John Harold Peel (10 December 1904 – 31 December 2005) was Surgeon-Gynaecologist to Lilibet, 1961-73. He assisted his predecessor Sir William Gilliatt at the births of Carlo and the Princess Snap and after Gilliatt’s death in 1956, Peel delivered Princes Andrew and Edward as well as Ma’am Darling’s two children, Viscount Linley and Lady Sarah Armstrong-Jones, those births being assisted by Top Doc John Brudenell. 

Peel himself was succeeded as Surgeon Gynaecologist by Sir George Pinker, who knew of Diana’s extreme distress, suicide attempts and eating disorder, but dealt with it all by a ‘Now don’t you worry my dear, we’ll look after you’ and nearly screwed up the birth of Williams into the bargain, which was why Diana ended up having screaming great rows with Carlo with regard to her reluctance to go through another experience like that. Surrounded by her ever sensitive in-laws, Di the Pedigree Breeder was coerced into another pregnancy and Harry’s delivery was handled by Oinker once more. In 1964 Oinker established a charidee, the Childbirth Research Centre, dedicated to reducing the number of women and babies who died during pregnancy and childbirth. The charidee changed its name to Birthright in 1972 and it is now known as Wellbeing of Women. Diana became a Patron in 1984, what with Di Wanting To Help and not realising that what she experienced when delivering William probably should not have happened (see post ‘The Wellbeing Of Wimmin – The Fortnum and Mason Connection’).

Oinker was a friend of Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain of St George’s Hospital Medical School. Chamberlain was a friend of Oliver Brooke, the Professor of Paediatrics at St George’s who was a leading figure in a pan-European paedophile ring and who was jailed for possession of child porn in Dec 1986, days after Dafydd had me unlawfully arrested and illegally imprisoned in the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. See previous posts eg. ‘Oliver!’ Chamberlain was colluding with the south London trafficking ring  facilitated by his colleagues at St George’s and Wandsworth Borough Council as well as Dafydd’s ring in north Wales. Chamberlain was also perpetrating research fraud and in the 1960s when he worked at the George Washington Hospital in the US had performed experiments on live late gestation foetuses whom he had unlawfully aborted and allowed to die after the experiments had ended. See post ‘Now Then…’.

 

Sir John Peel was the son of a Methodist Minister and was educated at Manchester Grammar School and Queen’s College, Oxford. Peel undertook his clinical training at King’s College, London and qualified in 1930. He was appointed consultant at King’s College Hospital and then worked as a consultant at the Princess Beatrice Hospital, London, 1937-65. The Princess Beatrice Hospital was founded in 1887 as the Jubilee Hospital. It later became known as the Fulham and Kensington General Hospital, then the Kensington, Fulham and Chelsea General Hospital and after further development, in 1931, the Princess Beatrice Hospital. When the NHS was inaugurated in 1948, for two years the Princess Beatrice Hospital was attached to that institution in Knightsbridge which did favours for rich criminals, including Lord Lucan (see post ‘Yes, There Is Still Green Paint On The Renault…’), St George’s Hospital.

In August 1950 the Princess Beatrice Hospital was transferred to the Chelsea Group Hospital Management Committee. It had been decided in the late 1960s that owing to the development of St Stephen’s Hospital, the acute services at the Princess Beatrice Hospital would be transferred to St Stephen’s Hospital and after re-development enabled this to happen, the Princess Beatrice re-opened in 1972. With the NHS re-organisation in 1974, the Princess Beatrice became part of the Kensington, Chelsea and Westminster Area Health Authority. The hospital was finally closed at the end of March 1978.

St Stephen’s Hospital was one of those institutions which opened the first wards for people dying of HIV in mid-1980s, wards which were famously visited by Diana and much was made of anonymity because of the Stigma attached to the patients. There was a Stigma but as with the Stigma which is said to result from mental health problems, some of those who were the most stigmatising were the Top Docs and Angels. There was a much more important reason for the news black-out re the terminally ill HIV patients: they were young men who had been forced into sex work as kids in care a few years previously and a lot of them had been in the children’s homes in north Wales. The Middlesex Hospital was another Caring institution which opened its doors to people dying of HIV and then the Mildmay Hospital in the East End did. See previous posts. All of these places had links with people who were desperate to conceal the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal and were in a position to liberate funding to isolate those patients while they died, to ensure that word never got out regarding how they had become infected with HIV.

The Chairman of the Kensington, Chelsea and Westminster Area Health Authority, 1977–82, was Dr John Dunwoody. John Dunwoody trained at King’s College Hospital and the Westminster Hospital, as did Wilfred and Dannie Abse, whom he knew. Dunwoody worked as a Top Doctor in Devon, 1955-66. He served as the Labour MP for Falmouth and Camborne, 1966-70 and knew Leo Abse, Dr Death and of course George Thomas. John Dunwoody was a junior Health Minister, 1969-70, under Secretary of State Richard Crossman, who concealed organised abuse, including Dafydd’s gang and the Westminster Paedophile Ring. When Crossman’s diaries were finally published after his death they revealed that in 1957, Crossman, Nye Bevan and Morgan Phillips, the Labour Party General Secretary, had perjured themselves and as a result had won damages for libel from ‘The Spectator’. Morgan Phillips was the father of John Dunwoody’s first wife, Gwyneth Dunwoody, who was the Labour MP for Exeter, 1966-70 and then Crewe (later Crewe and Nantwich), 1974-2008. Gwyneth Dunwoody, like her husband, concealed the criminality of Dafydd’s gang as well as linked gangs. John and Gwyneth’s daughter Tamsin served as the Labour AM for Preseli Pembrokeshire, 2003-07, during which time Tamsin concealed the criminality in the NHS and social services which was the legacy of the gangs with whom her parents colluded. See previous posts for further lowdown on the Dunwoodys.

John Dunwoody served as Chairman of the Bloomsbury District Health Authority, 1982-90, in which post he colluded with the trafficking gang operating in Islington Borough Council when the leader of that Council was Little Nell Hodge. The richer bohemian residents of the Bloomsbury area had long had links with  Llanfrothen/Croesor in what is now Gwynedd as a result of Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, an Anglo-Welsh landowner who owned an estate in Croesor marrying Amabel Strachey, a member of the Bloomsbury Set and renting out his properties as second homes to the Bloomsbury crowd and their friends and relations throughout the middle years of the 20th century. Some of them, including the psychoanalysts and Top Doctors in the network, were directly involved with the sexual exploitation of children and even more of them were colluding with it. (See previous posts eg. ‘The Vermin Club’ and ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’). In Nov 1984, Thomas Jones, Lord Maelor, who had been the Labour MP for the constituency which included Croesor, 1951-66, died in a fire at his home at Wrexham for which the official explanation was highly improbable. Lord Maelor had grown up near Wrexham, where Bryn Estyn and the Bryn Alyn Community were located and his brother James Jones served as Labour MP for Wrexham, 1955-70. See post ‘Slaves, Perfect Slaves’.

Gwynne the lobotomist’s alma mater the Middlesex Hospital served the Bloomsbury and Soho area. From 1996, John Dunwoody was Vice-Chairman of the Merton, Sutton and Wandsworth Local Medical Committee, where he colluded with the trafficking ring facilitated by St George’s and Wandsworth Borough Council. Dunwoody was awarded a CBE in 1986, before Ollie Brooke was convicted and jailed.

 

Between 1948 and 1967, Sir John Peel was Director of Clinical Studies at King’s College Hospital Medical School, 1948-67, where Dannie Abse trained. Geoffrey Chamberlain passed through King’s College Hospital in the early years of his career. John Peel was an examiner at around a dozen British universities, including Oxford, Cambridge, London and Bristol. Dafydd’s colleague in the north Wales gang Dr D.G.E. Wood trained at Bristol and Wood’s father was a Top Doctor in that city.

Peel became a Fellow of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in 1944. In 1955 Peel became a member of the RCOG’s Council and in 1959 its honorary Treasurer, there by raising sufficient funds to allow the College to move into premises in Regent’s Park. Peel was President of the RCOG, 1966-69 and was elected to an honorary fellowship in 1989. As President of the RCOG Peel presided over the early years of massive dissatisfaction with regard to childbirth practices which provided the spark for the attempts to ‘humanise’ ‘medicalised’ childbirth in the 1970s and 80s.

John Peel headed a number of steering groups and committees to Gov’t agencies, which included Chairing the Peel Report: Enquiry into Domiciliary Midwifery Beds Needs (1971) for the DHSS, under Secretary of State Keith Joseph, who inexplicably had access to personal information about Brown and me when Joseph was Secretary of State for Education, 1981-86. See previous posts for further details and for Joseph’s role in concealing the criminality of Dafydd et al, Jimmy Savile – who ran the region surrounding Keith Joseph’s constituency of Leeds North East – and the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Joseph’s Ministerial career stretched back as far as Macmillan’s Gov’t.

  • To reduce maternal and infant mortality, Peel’s Report recommended that all women should give birth in a hospital and remain there for some days. Among the Report’s critics was epidemiologist Archie Cochrane, who pointed out that there was little correlation between high hospitalisation rates and lower perinatal mortality. Archie’s science was excellent but he failed to ensure that members of his own team upheld his own rigorous standards, including Professor Kenneth Rawnsley, who spent his entire career concealing Dafydd’s criminality. See previous posts eg. ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy…’. Everyone ignored Archie’s reservations and Peel’s Report resulted in a change in the medical establishment’s approach to maternity, at the expense of domiciliary midwifery services.
  • During the 1970s and 80s, the medicalisation of childbirth came under severe attack from various quarters, including feminist scholarship, who conjured up images of misogynist men getting their filthy patriarchal paws on wimmin’s bodies. There is some truth in that but the harsh reality is that the midwives of that era were not all Wise Wimmin or the compassionate souls characterised in the TV drama ‘Call The Midwife’. Some of them were every bit as unscrupulous as, and held very similar attitudes to, the worst male Top Doctors. The midwives of north Wales were fully on board with Dafydd and the gang; some of them because they were terrified but others because they were friends with the gang and fully paid up members themselves.
  • I was at a public lecture a few years ago in which an academic researching childbirth on Anglesey in the 1960s demonstrated that the presence of a domiciliary midwife on Anglesey – there were periods of time when Anglesey didn’t have such a thing – caused death rates for mothers and babies to increase. I would love that researcher or someone else to follow that up because I suspect that the explanation had something to do with Dafydd’s gang.
  • The harsh reality was that there was and still is endemic bad practice in obstetrics both in hospitals and in the community and midwives who dared/dare openly criticise did/do not last long in their jobs. The situation today is so serious that midwives are running away from the NHS as fast as they can because they don’t want to be party to placing mothers and babies in danger.

Midwives Chronicle & Nursing Notes: April 1969 – Midwives ...

Geoffrey Chamberlain used to tell everyone that he was in favour of hospital births because when he was a young Top Doctor, he witnessed a woman bleed to death from a postpartum haemorrhage. Chamberlain had a point; if a mother experiences that after delivering, she needs a transfusion or she will die and die very quickly. However, when a woman died at St George’s because her eclampsia wasn’t managed properly by the Top Doctor, Chamberlain conducted an investigation and wrote a report blaming the midwife, because he didn’t want any bad publicity adhering to his team of Docs. Well he was friends with Oinker and had two paedophile rings to conceal and research fraud to perpetrate, he couldn’t have afforded any fingers to point at his team. So the poor bloody midwife got it in the neck instead.

One reason why those we know and love at St George’s didn’t like me was because ‘you are friends with the midwives who are all really thick, especially the black ones’. I was indeed friends with the midwives, who were not all really thick, most of them were very, very nice and highly competent, including all the black ones except for one of them. There was one black midwife who was incompetent, but I don’t think that it was a cause and effect relationship. Being friends with the midwives, I found out about a great many things, including the Court orders obtained by Wandsworth Social Services and other Social Services Depts which were served on the staff of the labour ward at St George’s compelling them to call the police and social workers in order to remove babies from certain patients if they turned up in labour. The midwives found this very, very upsetting and were relieved that very few of these patients ever showed up because they had gone into hiding to give birth. Some of them were the victims of the paedophile ring which St George’s and Wandsworth Social Services were facilitating. Others were victims of the related rings from other areas of London, which, like the Wandsworth ring, had links to Dafydd’s gang.

  • In the 1980s, as sponsor of the Responsible Society, Sir John Peel accused the Dept of Education and the DHSS of encouraging girls under 16 to have sexual intercourse:

 

Previous posts eg. ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’ have detailed how numerous Top Docs were fully on board with Dafydd’s gang and other gangs in coercing underage disadvantaged girls who had been targeted by the gangs into Being Sensible and taking the contraceptive pill, even in cases of girls without boyfriends and who showed no interest in acquiring them. It was so obviously a way of, as one whistleblower told me, ‘preparing them for action’. John Peel was right to raise this matter, but he aimed his fire at teenage magazines which were not leading the way; that was his colleagues the Top Docs and the sex abuse gangs which were being run by Social Services Depts. Furthermore the aim wasn’t the glorification of sex for the physical satisfaction of the girls, it was for the physical satisfaction of the unscrupulous old gits who were members and customers of the gangs. John Peel had many opportunities to stop Dafydd et al but he didn’t. Instead, until the end of his long life, he dined and harrumphed and chortled away with those running the gangs and was part of the monumental effort to ensure that the truth never ever emerged.

The Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh paid tribute to Peel after his death in Dec 2004, although he was not a member of their College. We were told that ‘His principal research interest was diabetes in pregnancy but he will also be remembered for his support for the Abortion Bill when he was president of the RCOG, his presidency of the British Medical Association and of the Family Planning Association and his contribution to many government committees’.

Ed Miliband’s Uncle Harry’s speciality was in diabetes. Uncle Harry was a consultant at Guy’s and then at Guy’s and Tommy’s when the two institutions merged. Uncle Harry, like John Dunwoody, was in the Socialist Health Association. Ed’s dad Ralph was active in the New Left with Eric Hobsbawm and others, who were friends with the Welsh Bloomsbury Set. See posts ‘The Vermin Club’ and ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’.

The RCOG, BMA and FPA colluded every step of the way with the coercion of vulnerable kids and young people into sex work and the provision of contraception. John Dunwoody was Chairman of the FPA, 1981–87, the years through which Dafydd’s gang and other gangs did whatever they wanted without being challenged or questioned, while the BMA provided north Wales gang members with free advice as to how to frame me for criminal offences.

‘His hobbies extended from his Friesian cattle farm to salmon fishing on the Spey. Friends and colleagues will long remember his 100th birthday lunch attended by most of the ex-presidents of the RCOG – Chamberlain as well, almost certainly – and many of his hospital colleagues, treated to his delightful reminiscences.’ 

John Suenson-Taylor, Lord Grantchester, is a member of a family from Liverpool/Cheshire who have numerous links with Dafydd’s empire in the north west of England. Lord Grantchester is a dairy farmer and active in dairying/agricultural circles. See post ‘Meet The Family’. The 6th Duke of Westminster, Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor – Carlo’s close friend who was President of the City of Chester Conservative Association while Sir Peter Morrison was the Tory MP for Chester and his abuse of kids in care in north Wales and elsewhere was openly gossiped about by members of the Association and constituents – was involved with many farming/landowning organisations eg. President, Holstein UK & Ireland (formerly British Holstein Society), 1988; Life Governor, Royal Agricultural Society of England; Vice-President, Country Landowners’ Association, 1999 until death; and Vice-President, Royal Smithfield Club, 2004 until death, as well as numerous other organisations including those concerned with children, young people, drugs and health/welfare.

Lord Grantchester’s estate is located near to the Duke of Westminster’s family seat, Eaton Hall in Cheshire.

 

John Peel’s guest list at his 100th birthday bash almost certainly included Geoffrey Chamberlain and what reminiscences of Peel’s they might have enjoyed – the sex abuse gangs, the lies, the research fraud, the bad practice, the unnecessary patient deaths and harm, the ruined lives and how they’d got away with the lot, throughout every investigation and Inquiry and still saw every media outlet in the UK unanimously chant ‘Ah, the doctors they were wonderful!’. Peel died in Dec 2004, after many, many years of long service to Dafydd and associated gangs and before the recent admission that more than a few maternity services in the UK are dangerous and have been for many years yet this was concealed by everyone.

 

After the Abortion Act 1967 was passed, something happened in north Wales which David Steel, John Peel or any Right To Choose campaigner or Top Doctor never spoke about, although they all knew about it. The Top Docs across the whole of north Wales co-ordinated to make it nigh on impossible for women, no matter what their position, to access NHS abortions. The Top Docs did however have an arrangement with a private abortionist in Chester, or probably more than one, to refer women, on demand, who could pay. Furthermore, this ‘service’ was so dangerous that women were being instructed not to travel home afterwards on public transport because of previous problems re haemorrhaging. Women who could not afford the butcher in Chester were told that if they wanted an NHS abortion they had to stay at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh where they would be ‘assessed’ by Dafydd. They were still refused an abortion whatever the results of the ‘assessment’. Yet they did not return home with their babies. I have been told by women who became pregnant as a result of the activities of the paedophile gang that they were taken to abortionists in locations across north Wales at the ages of 14 and 15. Everyone knew that this was going on, it was completely illegal yet no-one at all spoke about it let alone tried to stop it. No-one has told me what happened to all those babies of Denbigh patients, although I personally knew of some Denbigh patients – adult women, not girls – who’s babies had been unlawfully abducted by Top Docs and Angels. They never found out what had happened to their babies. This situation prevailed until the end of the 1980s. See previous posts eg. ‘It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not Arf’.

Sir John Peel knew all about it but there was not a word uttered, not even discreet polite words in Obs and Gynae publications. The law was flagrantly broken, girls and women were abused, their lives were endangered and babies disappeared over a period of many years, yet no-one spoke about it in any context.

  • Sir John Peel | The BMJ

Peel’s predecessor as Royal Gynaecologist, Sir William Gilliatt who delivered Carlo, undertook his medical training at the Middlesex Hospital. After qualification in 1908, Gilliatt held house appointments at the Middlesex as house physician, house surgeon, obstetric house physician and, finally, obstetric registrar and tutor. He was also elected to the staff of King’s College Hospital in 1916, retiring as senior gynaecologist in 1946.

Gwynne the lobotomist trained at the Middlesex and those associated with that institution protected him until the old bastard died in 1986. Gwynne was of the generation of Top Docs who followed Gilliatt and were trained by him and Gilliatt would undoubtedly have been most useful to Gwynne as he conducted a reign of terror across north Wales, forcing kids and young people into prostitution and lobotomising those who objected too loudly. Then there was the Aversion Therapy for gay men; while Gwynne and Dafydd facilitated an enormous gang that specialised in producing rent boys for the Westminster Paedophile Ring. As well as the victims of the gang kept in the dungeon at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh; the murders of patients and concealing of the bodies; the disappearance of the babies of the female patients who had been raped or had their much wanted babies abducted…

Gilliatt was gynaecologist to the Royal Household for more than 20 years and as well as delivering Carlo and the Princess Snap, he attended the Duchess of Kent at the births of her three children. Gilliatt was elected President of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, 1946-49 and President of the Royal Society of Medicine, 1954-56. He died suddenly on 27 September 1956 as a result of a car accident in Chertsey.

Gilliatt married anaesthetist Dr Anne Louise Kann, by whom he had a daughter, a former Secretary to Sir Winston Churchill and a son, Roger. Roger Gilliatt became a well-known neurologist/neurosurgeon. Lobotomies come under the umbrella of neurosurgery, although neurosurgeons these days try to play them down, it’s all become a little embarrassing.

Roger Gilliatt was foundation Professor of Neurology at London University and Chairman of the Department at National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery at Queen’s Square, but relocated to the US in 1987 and held a senior role at the National Institute of Health. He died in Aug 1991 from pancreatic cancer at his home in Washington DC. Roger Gilliatt was educated at Rugby and Magdalen College, Oxford. He undertook his clinical training at the Middlesex and was just a few years younger than Gwynne the lobotomist. Gilliatt was resident physician at the National Hospital, Queen Square and consultant neurologist at the Middlesex. In 1962 he was appointed to the Chair of Clinical Neurology at Queen’s Square. Roger Gilliatt was an Honorary Fellow of the American Academy of Neurology and the American Association of Electrodiagnostic Medicine.

Gilliatt’s obituary in the journal ‘Muscle & Nerve’ described him as ‘a powerful leader whose well-conceived policies have resulted in the pre-eminent international position of the Institute of Neurology at Queen Square today’. That pre-eminent position has been achieved by the active concealing of scandal after scandal, involving Top Docs who ran a paedophile gang and unlawfully imprisoned and lobotomised the victims, those Top Docs displaying a great deal of Muscle & Nerve. Gilliatt emigrated to the US just months after Ollie Brooke was jailed and Gwynne pegged out and while Brown and I were contacting the GMC, Gov’t Ministers and MIND regarding the serious criminality of Gwynne and his colleagues.

 

Professor Roger Gilliatt’s close friend and colleague at Queen Square was a neurologist who specialised in MS, Professor Ian McDonald. William Ian McDonald, born in New Zealand in 1933, was: Lecturer in Medicine at the University of Otago 1962-65; Research Fellow, Harvard University, 1965-66; Consultant Neurologist, National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, London, 1966-98; Professor of Neurology, Institute of Neurology, London University, 1974-98; Editor, ‘Brain’ 1991-97; President, European Neurological Society 1994-95; President, Association of British Neurologists, 1994-95; Harveian Librarian, Royal College of Physicians of London, 1996-2004.

Ian McDonald’s 2006 obituary in the Indie told us that:

Ian McDonald was an ambassador for all that is valued most in British neurology…He taught a generation of students at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery (“Queen Square”) in London….McDonald was the quintessential “safe pair of hands” on any professional, academic or social occasion, and he revelled in them all….a young New Zealander arriving in the UK in 1963, the National Hospital was an inspiring yet intimidating place to work….In the 1960s, with Professor Tom Sears, McDonald characterised the physiology and morphology of demyelination and remyelination in the central nervous system….In the 1970s, with Dr Martin Halliday, he pioneered laboratory methods for supplementing the clinical diagnosis of multiple sclerosis…In the 1980s, McDonald realised that magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy could be used to illuminate the nature of inflammatory brain disease. Professor Alan Davison had suggested that, as a senior investigator who had never held a grant from the Multiple Sclerosis Society, Ian McDonald would be the ideal person to develop a research unit funded by the society. Resources were quickly mobilised by John Walford, general secretary of the society. The chairman, Dr Reginald Kelly, was worried that the unit would not be dedicated to multiple sclerosis research, and felt vindicated when the first paper was a letter to The Lancet on stroke. But the programme was nurtured through its infancy to a state of lasting success…

Ian McDonald trained in clinical and experimental neurology at the University of New Zealand, where he was taught, at Otago, by Professor Archie Macintyre and Dr Keith McLeod. In London, he became close to Sir Charles Symonds, then in retirement, saw something of Sir Francis Walshe, and was influenced, amongst others, by Dr Denis Brinton, Dr Macdonald Critchley and Dr M.J. (Sean) McArdle. At that time, the brightest neurologists training at Queen Square went to Dr Derek Denny Brown, another New Zealander who had worked in England from 1925, initially with Sir Charles Sherrington, before moving to Boston in 1939….

…appointed as consultant neurologist to the National Hospital, Queen Square, in 1966, and to Moorfields Eye Hospital on his return from Boston in 1969, McDonald held a personal professorship at London University from 1974 to 1995…Many expected the established professorship of neurology at the Institute of Neurology to transfer “down the corridor” to McDonald on Gilliatt’s retirement in 1987, but not until 1995 – and after the deaths of Gilliatt’s two immediate successors, Professors David Marsden and Anita Harding – was McDonald appointed, and then for only a short period before his own retirement. Although the interests of the institute may have been well served by this sequence, the perceived delay in recognising his suitability as chairman hurt, for a while; and whereas his friends were also surprised at the lack of public recognition for his contributions in the form of a civil honour, and other indicators of professional achievement in the sciences, these omissions…became matters of lofty indifference to McDonald…

 McDonald…edited Brain from 1991 to 1997…achieving substantial financial security in the process…thereby allowing the Guarantors subsequently to distribute significant resources annually in support of education for young people working in the neurosciences. In retirement, McDonald served as Harveian Librarian at the Royal College of Physicians of London…Throughout his life, Ian McDonald set aside time to engage with the arts, and his wide circle of friends included many individuals professionally active in music, dance, the visual arts, literature and history. These friendships outside medicine cultivated by McDonald and his partner, Stanley Hamilton, were important. Several revolved around the Garrick, membership of which he cherished.
The Garrick is favoured by lawyers, judges and people from the theatre. Three dedicated members of the Garrick who all played a substantial and direct role in concealing the criminality of Dafydd’s gang and the Westminster Paedophile Ring were Sir Ronnie Waterhouse, Sir Robin Day and Sir William Mars-Jones. See previous posts.

He was particularly pleased to be elected Foreign Member of the Venetian Institute of Science, Arts and Letters; and the connection with Venice was evident in the enthusiastic review he wrote of the most recent case of Commissario Brunetti (Through a Glass Darkly) by a thriller writer he much admired, Donna Leon, in the Times Literary Supplement. But his greatest passion was music. Taught piano by Ernest Empson in New Zealand and by Gigi Wild in London…Therefore, it was poignant that a small stroke in 2004 removed, for a while, his ability to understand music, read a score and play the piano….Ian McDonald’s lasting contribution is to have illuminated the clinical science of multiple sclerosis. For nearly half a century, people with that difficult disease had no better a professional friend.

In north Wales there have been complaints for many years that there was no ‘service’ for patients with MS. I know of one patient in Gwynedd, a health professional himself, who returned to his GP repeatedly after identifying a number of neurological symptoms who was referred to different consultants but not a neurologist. Suspecting that he might have a brain tumour in the end, after several years of this, he simply demanded to be referred to a neurologist. It was found that he had MS and had had it for a number of years. Another Gwynedd patient was told that she had MS, was left high and dry and some years later found that she didn’t have MS after all.

Professor David Marsden, who succeeded Roger Gilliatt because Queen’s Square preferred him to Ian McDonald, was a consultant neurosurgeon who was a big wig in the MDU. Marsden is another one of those Top Doctors about whom legends were created on the basis of no evidence. We are told that ‘Whether or not he really danced the samba with Dolly Parton in Rio only four hours before his keynote morning lecture on basal ganglia disease is unimportant’ – so he didn’t then –  ‘the fact is that David Marsden’s colleagues believed that it was well within the limits of possibility. He had the physical stamina and the intellectual prowess to do both brilliantly’. Marsden ‘attracted some of the best young neurologists from around the world… if they ever remembered anything after late-night drinks in the Phoenix & Firkin at Denmark Hill…’

Such material is used to create heroes out of dodgy Top Docs, yet identical material is used to discredit any patients who might need a bucket of slurry thrown over them…

Marsden ‘was blessed with a voice and demeanour that gave him instant advantage in committee work’ – so he intimidated everyone else. ‘He established a new research unit…funded directly by the MRC and was instrumental in helping to establish the Functional Imaging Laboratory in Queen Square.’ This translates as ‘by hook or by crook he extracted the dosh for a machine that goes ping’. So that was why David Marsden was preferred by Queen’s Square over McDonald…

Marsden’s successor – Ian McDonald was passed over once more – Anita Harding was a neurologist who died of colorectal cancer when she was just 42 – but the NHS is the best in the world! – which was dreadfully sad. But the victims of Dafydd et al were usually dead by the time that they were 30 and often much younger. They never had a go at being a neurologist on a healthy salary with a fulfilling life – they had been battered, raped, locked up and were abused all over again if they complained and they often hung themselves in Risley Remand Centre, where they had been detained after having been framed by their assailants. Marsden was one of many who could have stopped that happening to quite so many people – he didn’t.

See post ‘Gwlad y Menig Gwynion’ for further details re David Marsden and his appalling peers who held office with the MDU.

 

The neurologist Oliver Sacks of ‘the Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat’ and ‘Awakenings’ fame’ and who, like Roger Gilliatt, emigrated to the US, published an article in BMJ online with regard to ‘remembering’ his clinical teachers which contained the following:

After physiology finals at Oxford, I went on to begin my clinical training at the Middlesex Hospital. The Radcliffe Infirmary could accommodate only a dozen or so medical students, and it was felt that one could see a wider range of patients in a London hospital. The Middlesex Hospital…in central London, equidistant from Oxford Circus, Regent’s Park and Soho…My older brother, David, had been a medical student at Barts; my eldest brother, Marcus, at the Middlesex…I qualified in 1958, did a 6-month house job on the medical unit at the Middlesex, and then another 6 months on the neurological unit, where my chiefs were Drs Michael Kremer and Roger Gilliatt…Gilliatt was much more forbidding: sharp, impatient, edgy, irritable, with – it sometimes seemed to me – a sort of suppressed fury…

Oliver Sacks knew about Dafydd and the gang and one of Oliver’s close friends, Dr Jonathan Miller, was involved in concealing their criminality. See previous posts. Sacks was Professor of Neurology at Yeshiva University’ Albert Einstein College of Medicine, 1966-2007 and also held an appointment at the New York University School of Medicine, 1992-2007.

  • Six (scientific!) steps to social media success — Tamsen ...

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

In July 2007, Sacks joined the faculty of Columbia University Medical Center, as a Professor of Neurology and Psychiatry. At the same time, he was appointed Columbia University’s first “Columbia University Artist” at the university’s Morningside Heights campus, recognising the role of his work in bridging the arts and sciences. Sacks was also a visiting Professor at the University of Warwick in the UK. He returned to New York University of Medicine in 2012, serving as a Professor of Neurology.

 

These neurologists will all have known the daddy of neurologists in the UK, the Bastard of Newcastle-upon-Tyne who spent years providing 100% protection for Dafydd et al and was also facilitating the ring in the north east of England which supplied Dafydd’s gang with staff and children: Lord John Walton. Walton served as President of the BMA, 1980-82; President of the GMC, 1982-89; Warden of Green College, Oxford, 1983-89; and President of the Royal Society of Medicine, 1984-86. Walton was knighted in 1979, the year that Mary Wynch was unlawfully arrested and imprisoned by Dafydd and bagged his peerage in 1989, the year in which Dafydd’s mates Professors Robert Owen and Bluglass orchestrated a huge cover-up into my complaints about the gang. See post ‘Enter Professor Robert Bluglass CBE’. Walton was President of the GMC while the GMC refused to act upon complaint after complaint about Dafydd regarding patient deaths, unlawful imprisonment and indecent and improper behaviour. While Walton was in the hot seat, in one month alone there were five complaints about Dafydd. I suspect that Walton was appointed President of the BMA and GMC at that time because there were so many complaints about Dafydd and who knows what would have happened if John Walton had not been there to intimidate everyone into silence. Thatcher had become PM and Peter Morrison her Minister was enjoying Dafydd’s services, the last thing that anyone needed was an honest Doc at the top. Then Walton was needed in the Lords…

For more info on the long and shameful career of John Walton, his numerous public roles and the Pies in which he had fingers, see post ‘Little Things Hitting Each Other’.

Walton knew exactly what was going on and that witnesses were being killed:

Geoffrey Chamberlain followed in the steps of the giants Peel and Oinker when he was appointed President of the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, but Chamberlain was forced to resign his Presidency in Dec 1994 when the unfortunate business of the research fraud perpetrated by Chamberlain and his colleague Malcolm Pearce resulted in Pearce being sacked from St George’s. See post ‘I Don’t Believe It!’. At the same time Chamberlain was obliged to resign from his Chair and his Editorship of the British Journal of Obs and Gynae, which had published the paper by Pearce and Chamberlain describing their research fraud. Although Chamberlain’s name was on the paper in question, Chamberlain gave evidence against Malcolm at the subsequent 1995 GMC hearing, swore blind that he had not known about the fraud and that this whole messy business was simply a result of a ‘gift authorship’, Chamberlain’s name only appearing on the paper because he was Head of Dept.

Whilst gift authorship was common and some people’s names did appear on papers although they had not carried out the work themselves, the article which resulted in Pearce being sacked and struck off claimed that a near-miraculous operation had been carried out at St George’s by Pearce – the successful transfer of an embryo of an ectopic pregnancy from the fallopian tube to the uterine cavity. Chamberlain was extroverted and media friendly, if such a feat had been performed at St George’s, he would have demanded to meet the mother and the baby for media and PR purposes. Chamberlain wouldn’t have just merely rubber-stamped Malcolm’s paper, he’d have wanted a peerage out of that. Where were the mother and baby? Where were the theatre team who had assisted in the operation? Chamberlain must have known that no such operation had taken place when that paper was written, but Chamberlain threw Pearce to the wolves to save his own skin. Which, with Chamberlain’s celebrity friendships and him also being mates with Top Doc to the Royalty Oinker, he was able to do.

Despite the tainting of his reputation, in 2000 Chamberlain was offered sanctuary by Swansea University – an institution heavily influenced by Rhodri Morgan and Edwina Hart – where he published an internationally acclaimed textbook, From Witchcraft to Wisdom, whilst teaching history of medicine as an Apothecaries’ lecturer (see post ‘They Are MYRIAD, They Are Legion’). According to Chamberlain’s wiki entry, he relocated from London to Wales. Just in time for the publication/immediate aftermath of the Waterhouse Report then, which covered up the paedophile ring that Chamberlain and his colleagues had been colluding with and concealing for years.

Chamberlain had a Harley Street practice (or to be accurate, a Wimpole Street practice) as well as his NHS work and he was well-known to many high profile Top Docs. He was mates with both Lord Robert Winston and Wendy Savage, who have carefully cultivated reputations as not being as disgusting as other Top Docs, what with them being supporters of the Labour Party and the NHS and all that. Er – OK.

After being struck off in June 1995, Malcolm Pearce was subsequently employed as a medical negligence expert. This employment wasn’t mentioned in any media outlets for a very long time, but Malcolm and his history were so well-known that many people will have realised who the negligence expert proffering advice was. I believe that despite knives going into people’s backs all over the place at St George’s, a safety net would have to have been provided for Pearce because of the knowledge that he had regarding the very great wrongdoing of many of his colleagues.

Had I wanted to have publish anything about Dafydd and the gang or the excesses at St George’s, any opportunities for doing that were wrecked by Malcolm being struck off – he had been my last mentor and academic supervisor and was now disgraced. At the same time, all those paedophiles’ friends in north Wales had reinvented themselves as historians of medicine and had published a great deal of romantic, rose-tinted, frankly untruthful ‘histories of psychiatry in north Wales’, which were accompanied by Dafydd and other paedophiles’ friends appearing in the media remembering the happy experiences and excellent care provided by the North Wales Hospital Denbigh.

While doing this, the gang declared war on Graham Day, a senior sociologist at Bangor University who was not Of Them and ‘The Guardian’ assisted by publishing lies about Graham being a racist. Nerys, the sociologist who subsequently married Merfyn Jones, who later became VC of Bangor University, was caught in the crossfire and Merfyn and Nerys remained forever unforgiven. See post ‘Badlands’. The gang went after Nerys again years later. Nerys died while in the care of Dafydd’s colleagues at the Walton Centre and that was followed up by a co-ordinated campaign to remove Merfyn as VC and then from public life altogether, with which No 10 under Miranda, Gordon and then Cameron was involved. See previous posts eg. ‘Lest We Forget’ and ‘The Point Is To Change It’.

 

What if Chamberlain and Pearce had not been caught and exposed in 1994? They’d have became world famous, gone down in medical history and no-one would ever have believed a word that I had said about them and their colleagues.

Let us look further at the events which surrounded Pearce’s disgrace.

Pearce and Chamberlain published their pack of lies in the British Journal of Obs and Gynae in Aug 1994. Chamberlain was Editor-in-Chief of the journal. An unidentified whistleblower raised concerns about the veracity of the published research and the Principal of St George’s, Professor Sir William Assher, conducted an investigation.

Asscher had spent his career as a Top Doctor in Cardiff before relocating to St George’s in 1988 (see post ‘The White Heat Of This Revolution’). During his time in south Wales, Asscher had concealed much wrongdoing, including that of Dafydd, the paedophiles and George Thomas. Asscher relocated to St George’s in the wake of the imprisonment of Professor Oliver Brooke for the possession of child porn. Brooke’s office had been just down the corridor from Chamberlain’s and the two of them were friends. Brooke, the key figure in a pan-European child sex ring, which was linked to Dafydd’s gang.

Immediately after Asscher finished his investigation into Pearce and Chamberlain, his findings were reported to the St George’s NHS Healthcare Trust Board. On Fri 23 Dec 1994, the Trust put out a statement saying that Malcolm had been sacked with immediate effect after a disciplinary hearing which had been held on Thurs 22 Dec 1994. Journalists were unable to get hold of Malcolm, which was unsurprising, because he had been banished immediately before the Christmas break. Chamberlain had got in early and at the beginning of Dec 1994 had resigned as President of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. He also resigned as Editor of the journal which had published the paper with him as second author describing a research fraud of which he knew nuzzing.

As an NHS consultant who had been sacked, Pearce had the right to appeal to the Health Secretary, which at the time was Virginia Bottomley. Whether he did or not I don’t know, but Virginia, a former psychiatric social worker, had her hands full at the time with orchestrating the cunning plan that involved not putting Dafydd out to grass and not closing down the North Wales Hospital, although in the summer of 1995 the general public were told that both of these things had happened. See post ‘The Evolution Of A Drugs Baron?’.

Let me remind readers of events in north Wales whilst the Pearce-Chamberlain scandal blew up.

On 9 June 1994, Matt Arnold, the Head of Bryn Estyn, died of ‘an unspecified blood disease’. In 13 June 1994, the trial of Peter Howarth – Arnold’s colleague and friend of thirty years – for multiple sexual assaults on boys at Bryn Estyn opened at Chester Crown Court. Paul Wilson went on trial with Howarth charged with sexual abuse of the boys. On 8 July 1994, Howarth was found guilty and sentenced to 10 years imprisonment. Wilson was acquitted on all charges but on 28 Nov 1994, Wilson pleaded guilty to three counts of physical assault. Howarth always maintained that he had carried the can for other high profile abusers who were protected. Howarth ‘died from a heart attack’ in HMP Wakefield in April 1997. Four months after the Waterhouse Inquiry had opened, but while Ronnie Waterhouse had suddenly taken a holiday in Hong Kong, during which he met up and dined with Derry Irvine, who had also popped over to Hong Kong.

In the early summer of 1994, I and Patient F met with two members of the Mental Health Act Commission and told them that Dafydd was sexually exploiting patients and that serious complaints were not being investigated. We were accompanied by a nursing officer, Jeff Crowther. During the meeting, one of the Commissioners admitted that he had heard such complaints about Dafydd many times before. After they met us, Jeff told F and I that the other Commissioner had told Jeff that she had been a visitor/inspector to the North Wales Hospital in the 1960s ‘and it was exactly the same story then’.

My documents show that throughout the summer of 1994, Joyce Kaye of the Mental Health Act Commission wrote to the managers of the Gwynedd Community Health Trust a number of times asking for their response to the complaint that F and I had made. Their letters were ignored for weeks and then the Trust sent them a copy of a ‘care plan’ for me. How that was relevant I cannot understand. Our complaint was never addressed.

However, the Trust was busy. From the time that we met the Commissioners, letters circulated between the senior managers of the Hergest Unit, Dafydd and Tony Francis and the Trust’s lawyers discussing the serious danger that I presented to Dafydd and the necessity of protecting him from me. Discussions about transferring me to a forensic team and a secure unit were had. Dafydd then told the staff and managers of the Trust that I had thrown a brick through the glass door of his house at 3 o’ clock in the morning. I hadn’t and there was no evidence that I had. Yet the police met with Dafydd several times without me even being told that I stood accused of this and it was documented that I had indeed committed this crime. Dafydd contacted the MDU and the MDU documented that I had thrown the brick. On 3 Nov 1994 Dafydd obtained an ex parte injunction against me from Liverpool High Court. There was nothing in the injunction which related to me, it all referred to Patient F – but even then there were no details of any even moderately serious offences –  except for the allegation that I had thrown the brick through Dafydd’s door. By the time that Dafydd swore that affidavit, an Angel at Hergest had finally told me that I was being accused of throwing the brick and I told her that I hadn’t done it and I couldn’t have anyway because I had no car at the time that the brick was thrown. Dafydd’s house is inaccessible by public transport. Dafydd was told by the Angel that I could not have thrown the brick. Nonetheless, my crime was detailed on the affidavit which was presented to the High Court. The MDU did not ask Dafydd to produce any evidence for any of his allegations. The allegations were presented in court as uncontested matters of fact.

When the injunction was served on me the contents of the affidavit were so ludicrous that I let other patients read it, one of whom was a former lecturer from Bangor University, Dave Nunn, who told a number of other people what he had read. Tony Francis tried to have Dave sectioned on the morning that he had read the affidavit and Dave related the contents of the affidavit to the ‘independent psychiatrists’ from another hospital who were assessing him. Dave was not sectioned but he disappeared from north Wales shortly after this and none of us ever saw or heard of him again.

I have now been told that no-one threw a brick through Dafydd’s door, the brick was planted.

For further details of this idiocy, see eg. posts ‘These Sharks Are Crap As Well’, ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’ and ‘Now Then…’.

Some dates for your diary:

On 12 May 1994, John Smith, the leader of the Opposition, died at Bart’s after the Top Docs ‘could not revive him’ following a heart-attack. Dafydd’s mate and protector Professor Linford Rees ruled the roost at Bart’s (see post ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’). Dafydd had a few other pals at Bart’s as well and Bart’s had facilitated organised abuse for years, at least since the surgeon Reginald Vick, the father of Dafydd’s mate Lady Juliet Bingley, had worked there in the 1950s and 60s. See post ‘The Wind Of No Change’.

Bart’s also concealed Graham Chapman’s abuse of boys, although Chapman had left medicine soon after qualifying and gone into comedy full time. In the late 1980s before he died, Chapman became friendly with someone in Somerset who knew what was happening to me at the hands of Dafydd et al, who became inexplicably very wealthy in the following years and also found himself being befriended by the degenerate offspring of the rich n famous with links to the Tory Party. See post ‘Upper Class Twit Of The Year – Shooting Themselves’. The family of this man formerly had close links to Tom King, the lacklustre MP for Bridgwater who inexplicably rocketed up through the Tory Party after I encountered Dafydd’s gang. King was Secretary of State for Employment, 1983-85, while Sir Peter Morrison was a Minister in that Dept. King served as Secretary of State for N Ireland, 1985-89, when Thatch needed a safe pair of hands re the Kincora Boys’ Home scandal, which was linked to Dafydd et al. In 1989, King was appointed Secretary of State for Defence, a post he retained until 1992, when he was off to the Lords, days after the firebomb in Brighton killed five witnesses to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal (see post ‘The Silence Of The Welsh Lambs’).

When King was inexplicably promoted repeatedly despite being rather hopeless, the UK press used to wonder why he was being favoured by Thatch. Had the UK press not been ignoring what was happening to us in north Wales and all the documents which I now have been witheld from me, I could have told them. But weren’t ‘The Guardian’ prioritising an attack on Graham Day anyway? Oooh, I forgot. They all knew what was happening to me, it’s just that I didn’t realise it at the time…

Would Lord King and Lady Jane of the One Sausage Roll To Last All Evening like to make a statement?

On 21 July 1994 Miranda became leader of the Opposition. The Pretty Straight Kind Of Guy who is married to a lawyer who was mates with and indeed mentor to so many of those ‘radical lawyers’ who ignored the plight of kids in care and psych patients who were being so seriously abused. In 1993 I wrote to Michael Mansfield about what was happening to me in north Wales at the hands of Gwynedd Social Services. Mansfield sent me a one line reply. Tony and Cherie know many ‘radical’ lawyers and personal injury specialists – who undoubtedly know folk who worked for the MDU and/or Hempsons, who were acting for Top Doctors against me although they knew that perjury was being committed by their clients. Cherie’s colleague and friend Michael Beloff QC was the son of Lord Max Beloff, who was a buddy of Ioan Bowen Rees, the Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council.

Michael Mansfield lived in Wandsworth, just down the road from St George’s. Many St George’s staff lived in Wandsworth, including David Hole, the corrupt MSF rep who worked for Chamberlain. Chamberlain lived in Wimbledon, as did the crooked barrister George Carman QC, who knew about Dafydd and the paedophiles as well as Jimmy Savile. Cherie was a member of the same Chambers as Carman until 1988 and Miranda had previously been Carman’s pupil. Cherie and Miranda had also both worked for Derry Irvine on a city fraud case with Ronnie Waterhouse when they were junior barristers.

 

The only ‘response’ from the Gwynedd Community Health Trust to the MHAC re my complaints was made on 1 Sept 1994, when Alun Davies wrote to Joyce Kaye giving details of my ‘care’ and told Mrs Kaye that Rob Evans – the Assistant Director of Gwynedd Social Services – would meet with me.

Rob Evans had graduated in Social Sciences from Leicester University and obtained his CQSW in 1976. Whilst Evans was in Leicester, the paedophile gang involving Frank Beck and Greville Janner was concealed by a number of people at Leicester University (see post ‘Radical Leicester And Some Other Free Radicals’). In 1992 Rob Evans was appointed Assistant Director of Gwynedd Social Services (Mental Health).

I was told that my meeting with Rob Evans was to discuss the constant aggro between social worker Jackie Brandt, Keith Fearns, Brandt’s line manager and the leader of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team and me. However Rob didn’t discuss that. Instead Rob gave me a tutorial on ‘changing social work practice’. He explained that what was once acceptable is not any more. As an example, Rob Evans explained that when he used to take children into care, he would take their shoes away because if he didn’t they would run off. (People who had been in care in north Wales explained when they were adults that they had tried to run away from the beatings and the buggery but social workers took their shoes away so they couldn’t escape.) Rob told me that he knew some people in north Wales hated him but he didn’t care because he knew that he had done the right thing by taking their kids into care because they didn’t know how to look after them. I spent a long while wondering whether Rob Evans was just stupid, but I have come to the conclusion that he is pure bloody evil.

I last saw Rob Evans just before I left Bangor, in Tesco no less. When he saw me he told me that if I ‘arrassed him he’d call the police.

Rob Evans made a record of his meeting with me and what happened afterwards. After meeting me, Evans held a meeting with Keith Fearns and asked Fearns what he wanted him (Evans) to do with me. Fearns replied ‘lock her up’. Evans documented that he told Fearns that wasn’t possible. Fearns repeated ‘lock her up’. Evans recorded that there was no solution to this situation and because he was being transferred to a new role the following day the matter would no longer be his responsibility.

Before Rob Evans was appointed as Gwynedd Social Services senior manager for mental health, he was Gwynedd Social Services senior manager for child protection. While the kids in care were abused by the gang. See post ‘I Know Nuzzing…’.

 

A High Court injunction against me wasn’t enough for Dafydd. He also demanded that an alarm system be installed in the Hergest Unit because of the danger that I represented to him. On 1 Nov 1994 Alun Davies wrote a letter to the CEO of Gwynedd Community Heath Trust John Mullen regarding the alarm system as required by Dafydd. Alun Davies estimated the cost at £25k and told Mullen in his letter that he wanted to discuss the funding with Mullen.

Meanwhile, I had made representation to the Trust about the gossip, speculation and mad fantasy in Dafydd’s injunction and his breach of confidence. Dafydd had provided clinical details of a matter involving me many years previously which had no relevance to the injunction or to any of Dafydd’s claims re the danger that I presented to him. I remembered how many times people had told me that they wouldn’t complain about Dafydd ‘because he knows things about me and he’ll tell people’. I knew enough to know that Dafydd was not on sound ground including some of the comments that he had in his affidavit. So I wrote to the NHS authorities in north Wales making it clear that Dafydd had now done what he was constantly alleged to do in the face of challenge – he had breached confidence and this time in the High Court in Liverpool.

On 11 Nov 1994 John Mullen wrote to the Medical Director of Gwynedd Community Health Trust, Jeremy Corson, asking him to investigate my complaint re Dafydd and the breach of confidence. I was told constant lies over the following few months and my complaint was never investigated or resolved. Then, in Jan 1995, came Tony Francis’s referral of me to a forensic psychiatrist on the grounds of my extreme dangerousness and the necessity of banging me up. And a repeat referral when the forensic psychiatrist in question refused to declare me dangerous. Please see post ‘The Banality Of Evil’ for details.

 

So unbeknown to me, whilst repeated attempts were made to have me declared dangerous and incarcerated on the basis of absolutely no evidence at all, Malcolm Pearce had quietly come out of purdah and begun working as a medico-legal expert. Chamberlain had remained a clean skin and no-one breathed a word about the experiments on and killing of babies that Chamberlain had undertaken at the George Washington Hospital in the mid-1960s. I wonder why no-one mentioned that during any of the many scandals at St George’s after I had been forced out? The only person who would have found themselves under fire if they had published anything about healthcare after the Pearce-Chamberlain Scandal would have been me. The paedophiles’ friends would have reminded everyone that I had been the research assistant of that dreadful man who had faked research and been struck off.

I wonder if a few other people as well as Dafydd might have been worried about what I might write? A man who had carried out medical experiments on live babies perhaps? Or a Secretary of State for Health who used to work as a psychiatric social worker and was actively colluding with the most serious crime (see previous posts for further details of Ginny’s many interests)…

A full police investigation into the possibility of a paedophile ring in north Wales had been undertaken and closed in 1993. Just before those we know and love went into battle against me, at it would seem a most convenient time for some truly terrible Top Docs in London of whom I had knowledge as well…

Although the police had found no evidence at all of a paedophile ring in north Wales and Cheshire, a number of ‘care’ staff and teachers went to prison for abusing the children in their care. The month before Tony Francis wrote to Dr Chris Jones asking for a ‘forensic opinion’ on me, senior police officer Gordon Anglesea won damages for libel of almost £400k from ‘Private Eye’ and others after they had named Anglesea as being someone who had abused kids in care in north Wales (see posts ‘Y Gwir Yn Erbyn Y Byd’ and ‘Y Gwir Yn Erbyn Y Byd – A Few Additional Comments’). Two months later, Mark Humphreys, one of the men who had named Anglesea as his abuser when he was younger, was found hanging in the stairwell of the block of flats in which he lived in Wrexham.

In 2016 Gordon Anglesea was imprisoned for historical sex offences against children in care in north Wales.

On 9 Feb 1995 John Allen, the owner and manager of the Bryn Alyn Community, was convicted of indecent assault against six former residents and received six years imprisonment. John Allen is currently serving yet another prison sentence – his third – for the abuse of kids in care…

On 27 Feb 1995 Hefin Davies, the Chairman of Gwynedd Community Health Trust, wrote to the Trust’s lawyer Tony Lane asking if there was any more that they could do to have me prosecuted.

As a bonus for readers of this blog, here’s some extracts from the reminiscences of an anonymous Top Doc who was the junior colleague of Michael Brudenell, who helped Sir John Peel deliver Princes Andrew and Edward as well as Ma’am Darling’s children:

Michael Brudenell died on 30 March 2015 just two weeks prior to his 90th birthday. He was a traditional Obstetrician and Gynaecologist caring for all aspects of women’s health with a passion rarely seen nowadays. He qualified in medicine at King’s College London in 1949 where he undertook his house jobs, starting his career in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Queen Charlotte’s Hospital the following year. He spent most of his National Service as an Obstetrician in military hospitals in Germany returning to King’s in 1953 to carry out research on endometrial pathology and cervical cytology.

After obtaining both his membership of the RCOG and his fellowship of RCS he completed his time as a registrar and senior registrar at King’s before being appointed as a consultant to St Luke’s Hospital and the Royal Infirmary in Bradford in 1961. There he was one of just three consultants serving a population of a quarter of a million. However after only three years he was invited to apply for a consultancy at King’s College Hospital where he remained until he retired from clinical practice in 1990. In his retirement speech he commented that when he entered medical school a banner at the main entrance of the hospital read “this hospital is £2,000 000 in debt” – some things never change!

His career was significantly influenced by Sir John Peel and Sir Stanley Clayton both of whom were past Presidents of the RCOG. As a trainee and then colleague to Sir John Peel he assisted in the deliveries of both Prince Andrew and Prince Edward as well as Princess Margaret’s two children. During his time at King’s he took a major interest in diabetes in pregnancy undertaking research and lecturing widely on the subject. In collaboration with his physician colleagues the perinatal mortality in diabetic women at King’s was reduced to near non diabetic levels.

Throughout his working life Mike had strong links with the RCOG. He was a London Members representative and subsequently a London Fellows representative on Council with a period of time on the Finance and Executive Committee. He was the Fellows Representative on the Wellbeing Council and Investment Advisory Panel. In addition he was Chairman of many committees including the BJOG Management Committee, Scientific Advisory Committee and Logic Working Party. From 1978-1984 he was Honorary Treasurer. His only regret was that having stood for election on two occasions he failed to become President. During his time as Treasurer of Birthright he persuaded Philip Harris, later Lord Harris, to fund research into Obstetrics and Gynaecology and this established the first Harris Birthright Department of Fetal Medicine in the country at King’s College Hospital. This was opened by Princess Diana in 1984 and is now one of the largest and most successful fetal medicine units in the world, run by Professor Kypros Nicolaides, seeing over 20 000 patients a year from the UK and overseas.

When I worked at St George’s, in 1990 I was told that one of the Profs at King’s who was involved with the fertility unit there and enjoyed a reputation as far away from the pompous old Top Doc in a stripy suit and bow tie as it was possible to get, was a bit too much because ‘he has sex with his children’. I don’t know how old the children in question were. The man in question was not Prof Nicolaides.

Mike loved sport particularly rugby and was President of the King’s Rugby Club for 20 years. He played tennis and had a court at the end of his garden – at 50 he could still beat his son, by 55 he had to regularly use his exercise bike to stay fit and by 60 he reluctantly admitted that he was regularly beaten. He was also a keen skier and continued to ski well into his 70’s but only in the United States where he said the snow was softer! Fortunately for him his very loyal wife Mollie shared in most of his activities both professional and sporting. She campaigned very hard for Birthright and later Wellbeing of Women and for many years worked actively for the League of Friends at King’s College Hospital. Devoted to his family he took great pride in the many achievements of his four sons and their offspring.

I had a very special relationship with Mike Brudenell. When I first went to King’s as a registrar in 1979 my mother asked me who I was working for and I told her that one of my consultants was Michael Brudenell. She asked if it was “the Michael Brudenell who delivered the Queen’s children”. At the time I had no idea but I made enquiries and found out that it was. She was absolutely delighted and told me that he had delivered me by emergency caesarean section for fetal distress at Queen Charlotte’s Hospital in 1950. Initially I kept this information to myself until one day I decided that it would be useful to let him know that if he had been a little quicker I might have had an easier life. I don’t know whether this influenced him in his choice of a colleague but he appointed me as a consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist at King’s College Hospital 34 years later.

As a junior doctor I found Mr Brudenell challenging to work for. He generated an element of fear and respect.

A la Doug and Dinsdale Piranha.

He favoured the male trainees, particularly those who played rugby but did not really understand female trainees of whom there were relatively few at that time.

Although he was a gynaecologist…

However, he was always fair and ensured that we were properly treated even if he did shout at us from time to time.

Doug and Dinsdale. Ooh yes he nailed my ear to the floor but I deserved it…

We all benefited from his teaching, guidance and support. And he in return was receptive to learning new skills. When I was his senior registrar he persuaded me to teach him how to do a colposuspension on one of his American private patients for whom his anterior repair had failed to cure her stress incontinence.

So what went wrong with the repair then?

Much to his delight and my relief, she reported that three months later she was able to play “soft ball” without leaking.

Unless she was in a very bad way, she’d probably have been better off keeping well away from him.

He looked after his “firm” and ensured that the ward sister gave us breakfast after the ward round before we started the out patients clinic.

From what I saw, it was these acts of ‘consideration’ – which were nearly always the work of someone else – between the ruthless bullying and intimidation, which enabled complete scumbags to sustain reputations as having hearts of gold beneath that gruff exterior. In the era which the Top Doc is remembering, the shifts for junior doctors were horrific; they had probably been on call for the previous 24 hours anyway as part of an 180 hour week and had Sister not supplied a bit of grub they’d have fainted from exhaustion and hunger.

His generosity, availability and hands-on approach made him popular with patients, nurses and midwives.

But not other Top Docs?? So why was that? Did they perhaps know rather more about him than the patients, nurses and midwives?

He was so enthusiastic about all aspects of hospital life. His passion for both King’s and the RCOG influenced many of us and he will be remembered fondly by all of those with whom he worked or played.

Because Brudenell delivered Royal babies, he ruled King’s and the RCOG and if anything about the malpractice and patient harm is remembered, including that Top Doc who had sex with his children, we’ll never work again. King’s also hosted a students and Top Docs club which was involved in a ring procuring sexual partners for those in the club. Then there was the scam in the 1980s at King’s in which students were marrying oversees citizens who wanted permission to remain in the UK for a handsome sum. My point here is not to remember those students with a ‘Shocking, ooh they’re animals’, it is to point to the unrelenting pomposity of that institution and what was actually happening there, while the class of people who ran and still run it make insulting noises about aggressive patients attacking Angels and drinking too much and being too fat and generally a bit too plebeian.

 

When David Steel presented his Private Member’s Bill in 1966, huge swathes of the medical establishment were still firmly opposed to abortion. Abortion was a cause favoured by younger people or radicals, but the medical establishment were not young and radical and neither were their mates in the legal establishment. Many of the leaders of those professions at the time had been born in the 19th century. They were signed up to moralising, hypocrisy and personal benefit from these things. So someone must have really twisted the arms of someone else to ensure that Sir John Peel Chaired that medical advisory committee that reported in favour of passing Steel’s Bill. The Gov’t of the day – Harold Wilson’s Gov’t – was backing Steel’s Bill. The Harold Wilson’s Gov’t who were frantically rearranging the furniture to ensure that the Westminster Paedophile Ring which was being facilitated by corrupt Top Docs, lawyers and senior figures in the welfare state remained concealed…

 

After the Abortion Act 1967 Top Doctors were – rightly in my opinion – allowed to refuse to undertake abortions on the grounds of a ‘conscience’ clause. If they did so, they did have to explain to their patient that although they could/would not help they would refer them to another Top Doc who would. This was widely flouted and even in the early 1990s I heard  a Top Doc discuss how uneducated women from Tower Hamlets were being told by Top Docs that the Doc ‘could be struck off’ for requesting an abortion for his patient. The Doc who talked about this in a public lecture at St George’s was Wendy Savage, the Labour Party supporting feminist Top Doc. Wendy knew what Dafydd et al were doing in north Wales and she said nothing at all. Wendy Savage was a member of the GMC when those complaints about Dafydd and co were not acted upon. The Labour Party of the late 1980s really, really loved Wendy Savage, she was a regular on ‘Question Time’ and other such programmes where she would be insulted by Lord Hailsham and the like.

You didn’t mention the War then Wendy!!! It would have finished Hailsham off, but there was your mate Chamberlain to think of, Chamberlain who famously could be heard bellowing around St George’s that ‘one cannot be a gentleman and a Tory…’ As well as all the other Top Docs and Labour Party supporters who decided that I and others could be sacrificed…

One Top Doc who’s name isn’t mentioned as often as it should be on a police charge sheet is that of Deirde Hine. Deirdre was:

  • Principal Medical Officer, Welsh Office (1984)
  • Deputy Chief Medical Officer (1985)
  • Director, Breast Cancer Screening Service, Wales (1988)
  • Chief Medical Officer, Wales (1990-97)

Which puts Deidre at the scene of a great many crimes – eg. perjury, forgery, conspiracy, embezzlement – what with Health and Social Services having been the responsibility of the Welsh Office since the late 1960s. Deirdre was promoted to CMO for Wales from Deputy CMO in 1990; in 1989, the Welsh Office orchestrated Bluglass’s cover-up into my very serious complaint against Dafydd and the gang. Deirdre knows Carwen Howell, the pal of Lucille Hughes’s Lady Top Doctor friend; Carwen was a mandarin at the Welsh Office, responsible for pharmacy. Dafydd was flogging class A drugs with the collusion of corrupt mandarin Bing Spear of the Home Office Drugs Branch. Bing died in July 1995, four days apart from when the body of Peter Morrison was discovered. Bing was a great friend of Dr Ann Dally and her husband Dr Peter Dally. It was Bing who saved Ann’s bacon when she ended up suspended and under police investigation in the 1980s for flogging Class A drugs to the rich n famous. Ma’am Darling was a patient of Dr Peter Dally. Ann later wrote a book about her ordeal at the hands of the police and others and the book had a foreword written by Wendy Savage, another Woman Doctor Who Was Attacked By The Patriarchy (see post ‘Little Things Hitting Each Other’). Fortunately the Patriarchy at the GMC at the time was Presided over by Lord John Walton, so Ann was soon back on the Medical Register after a few guest appearances in the media.

Dame Deirdre Joan Hine (née Curran; born 16 September 1937) is a Welsh Top Doctor ‘who in 1984 began her career as a public health physician in Wales’.

Hine was born to David Alban Curran and his wife, Noreen Mary (née Cliffe), and raised in Cardiff. I wonder if Deirdre is a relation of Desmond Curran, the daddy of the trafficking gang at St George’s?

Deirdre attended Heathfield House (Cardiff) and Charlton Park (Cheltenham) schools before qualifying at the Welsh National School of Medicine (now Cardiff University Medical School) in 1961. The Welsh National School of Medicine, as long ago as the 1950s, was colluding with the sex offending of George Thomas. The Top Docs in south Wales and George had a love-in for the entire latter half of the 20th century.

In 1963 Hine married Raymond Hine; they have two sons and five grandchildren. Hine worked at Cardiff’s Royal Infirmary, trained in public health medicine and became a specialist in community medicine in 1974. It was George Thomas who diverted huge quantities of money from the NHS budget for Wales to build the flagship University Hospital of Cardiff at the Heath in the early 1970s. The folk at the Welsh National School of Medicine were delighted but the rest of Wales was left with crumbling inadequate hospitals, many of which were former workhouses and the like. See post ‘The Great Stink’. Not that it mattered, the Top Docs at the Heath were the ones who were cooking the books, ticking the boxes and writing the reports maintaining that the whole of Wales had an ‘excellent’ NHS, although Dafydd had a load of victims of sex crime imprisoned in a dungeon in Denbigh. In return George Thomas et al had sex with children.

Deirdre knew Professor Sir William Asscher who was called from Cardiff to help out at Paedophilia HQ at St George’s in 1988 after that embarrassing business with Oliver Brooke; she knew Tony Francis, she knew Dafydd, she knew all of them. Deirdre’s career in community medicine began in 1974, when Dafydd’s gang prepared to receive hundreds of children in north Wales once Dr Death succeeded in getting the Leo Abse-inspired Children Act 1975 onto the statute books with his Private Member’s Bill.

Hine retired in 1997, the year that the Waterhouse Inquiry opened and was appointed a Dame in the same year “for services to medicine in Wales”. Deirde was appointed to the Audit Commission in 1998. Jeremy Colman joined the National Audit Office in 1993  and in 2005 was appointed Auditor General for Wales. In 2010 Colman resigned and was subsequently imprisoned after child porn was found on his office computer. See previous posts.

Huw Vaughan Thomas replaced Colman as Auditor General for Wales. Huw was Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council throughout the years that kids in Gwynedd’s children’s homes were abused. Huw’s son was also employed by the Welsh Audit Commission. Huw has so many public appointments that I will simply refer readers to my post ‘I Know Nuzzing…’ where I have listed some of them. Huw is married to Enid Rowlands, who, among many other things, is Chair of the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority, served as a member of the GMC for eight years, was or is a Director of the North Wales Health Authority and was or is a Director of BUPA. Enid also has held so many public appointments that I invite readers to refer to previous posts.

Huw and Enid live in Colwyn Bay and Enid refused to relocate to south Wales when she was appointed Chair of ELWA, a ‘training and education’ quango. Within a few short years ELWA was so deeply in debt that over 100 staff were made redundant and several million had been given in grant funding to a business called Avanti who could not explain what they had done with the money. Enid refused to resign even though accounting procedures had not been followed and there was an undeclared conflict of interest in the appointment of Dr Peter Higson as interim CEO of ELWA, as both Enid and Higson were Directors of the North Wales Health Authority.

Higson is a clinical psychologist who worked at and then was manager of the North Wales Hospital Denbigh and then the manager of the regional mental health services in north Wales. After Enid refused to resign, ELWA was soon a smouldering ruin. Higson was appointed CEO of the newly created HIW (Health Inspectorate Wales) and when HIW was branded not fit for purpose some ten years later, Higson ‘retired’. Before retiring, Higson wrote a damning report regarding Merfyn Jones’s Chairmanship of the Betsi Board. A second damning report regarding Merfyn’s leadership of the Betsi was written by Huw Vaughan Thomas. Merfyn resigned. Peter Higson was appointed as the next Chair of the Betsi Board.

Merfyn: If you want to punish yourself by re-entering public life, drop me an e mail and I will arrange for huge quantities of child porn to be found among your possessions. I am sure that you will be inundated with offers of public appointments within days. Do you fancy being Chair of the Parole Board perhaps? Chief Exec of the NSPCC Wales? DG of the Prison Service? The world will be your oyster and furthermore you will not have the gwerin carping and grumbling, spreading poisonous rumours about you and planning to fit you up for a criminal offence like they did when you dared challenge their misconduct and criminality.

Peter Higson also picked up a seat on the Council at Bangor University. While Higson held that post, Higson’s sister Ruth Hussey, the Chief Medical Officer for Wales, was awarded an Honorary Fellowship by Bangor University. For further details of Peter and Ruth’s glittering careers see post ‘Topsy and Tim’.

 

Deirdre Hine was named as Chair of the Commission for Health Improvement in August 1999 and served as President of the Royal Society of Medicine, 2000-02. This explains a mystery of many years standing. In 2003, the Hergest Unit had one of the highest suicide rates in the UK, there were numerous complaints of staff assaulting patients, none of which were investigated and a number of patients, including me, had been prosecuted on the basis of the perjury of NHS staff. Patients were writing to MPs, to Gov’t Ministers and to the Secretary of State for Wales. There had been at least one patient death in the Hergest Unit itself. The Commission for Health Improvement carried out an inspection of the NW Wales NHS Trust’s mental health services at this time and I and at least two other patients met with the CHI and gave them first hand accounts of what had happened to us. I later found out that two Hergest Unit staff also spoke to the CHI and told them that the Unit and the community mental health service were so dangerous that patients had died as a result.

I and the other two patients who met with the CHI subsequently received a copy of the CHI’s Report. It praised the NW Wales NHS Trust’s mental health services in glowing terms. The CHI referred to the excellence, the caring staff and the ‘excellent joint working between the Community Mental Health Teams and the Hergest Unit’. Not only had there been complaints that the Arfon CMHT had threatened and assaulted patients, but the Hergest staff and the Arfon CMHT were at each others throats to such a degree that one Top Doctor from the Hergest Unit, Dr Devakumar, refused to even speak to, let alone work with, the Arfon CMHT. This made Devakumar popular among the Hergest staff and other CMHTs who all hated the Arfon Team as well, but Devakumar was mistreating patients himself.

I met with the other two patients who observed that the Report ‘was like reading about a completely different hospital’. Indeed it was, this wasn’t just a bit of skilful editing, it was an account of a mental health service that simply did not exist. We contacted the CHI and were told that no correspondence would be entered into. One of the patients who met with the CHI was later awarded an out of court settlement for the clinical negligence which she had sustained while in the ‘care’ of the NW Wales NHS Trust.

Brown quipped afterwards that the contents of the CHI Report probably reflected the quality of the dinner to which Alun Davies had treated the CHI the night before the inspection. I fear it was far worse than that now I’ve found out that Deirdre was Chair of the CHI at the time.

At the time of that CHI Report, the CEO of the NW Wales NHS Trust was Keith Thomson. In 1994, when Dafydd wrote to John Mullen, the CEO of the Gwynedd Community Health Trust and told him that he had ordered the MDU to raise a High Court injunction against me, Dafydd CC’d the letter to Keith Thomson. I don’t know what Thomson’s job title was at the time, but Keith Thomson eventually became the CEO of the North West Wales NHS Trust after Barry Shingles, yet another corrupt NHS manager in Gwynedd, who was expected to become CEO, killed himself.

Keith Thomson was a grade A nightmare, even by the standards of NHS managers in north Wales. He refused to investigate serious complaints and also refused to co-operate with external NHS investigations. He declared me and a number of other people to be ‘vexatious complainants’ and on those grounds refused to answer our correspondence. On Keith Thomson’s watch, north west Wales had the second highest suicide rate among women of any area in England and Wales. It was Thomson who was summoned before the High Court in Cardiff in 2005 and ordered to hand over all documentation relating to me or face imprisonment for contempt of court. Hours later Thomson resigned. An article subsequently appeared in the ‘Daily Post’ entitled ‘Ten Years At The Top For Keith’, waxing lyrical about Thomson’s glorious career and how he was now retiring. Thomson was then awarded an OBE. He didn’t retire. Dr Brian Gibbons, the Welsh Gov’t Health Minister who was one of those who refused to investigate my complaint and in the end even correspond with me, appointed Thomson as CEO of the Pembrokeshire and Derwen NHS Trust. Where there was havoc in the NHS…

I also took my complaint to the Gwynedd Community Health Council. The CEO repeatedly lied to me and then refused to investigate the complaint. The CEO was Glanville Owen. Who in the mid-1980s had been the Deputy Director of Gwynedd Social Services responsible for children’s homes…

Rhodri Morgan was FM when Welsh Gov’t Health Minister Dr Brian Gibbons – who was in the Socialist Health Association with John Dunwoody and Ed’s Uncle Harry – let Keith Thomson loose on the NHS in west Wales. There was a paedophile gang in operation in west Wales which had links to the one in north Wales. Ioan Bowen Rees, the Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council who was in post whilst the paedophile gang in were busy on his turf, had previously been County Secretary of Dyfed County Council, whilst a paedophile gang were busy there (see post ‘I Know Nuzzing…’). Rhodri’s wife Julie is a former social worker who was Assistant Director of Barnardo’s. Some Barnardo’s staff were involved with the abuse of children in north Wales.

Keith Thomson had grown up in Bangor and went to Friars School. Yet before becoming CEO of the NW Wales NHS Trust, he had spent time as an NHS manager in Stirling. The Stirling ruled by Lord Jack McConnell, who had gone to Stirling University with my best friend from school and the man whom she later married and shafted them from 1986 onward, when Dafydd and the gang went after them as well as Brown and Brown’s brother, being witnesses who wouldn’t abandon me. See post ‘The Turn Of The Screw’. The Lord Jack who is a big pal of Sarah’s Teddy Bear Gordon. Lord Jack was FM of Scotland, 2001-07. Lord Jack, I am so glad that my friend spurned your efforts at discussing Uganda with her when she was an undergrad. What a toe rag you are, no wonder she married your rival.

Here is the turd whom Scotland elected as FM:

The Lord McConnell of Glenscorrodale
Official portrait of Lord McConnell of Glenscorrodale crop 2.jpg

It was Lord Jack who appointed Prof Alexis Jay as the most senior social worker in Scotland. The Alexis who was responsible for the Orkney Satanic Panic, who ignored abuse which really did happen – including in Stirling – and who is now Chairing the IICSA. See post ‘The Scottish Play’.

Lord Jack is a big mate of Kirsty Wark of ‘Newsnight’ fame. See previous posts.

Lord Jack’s pal Gordon’s wife Sarah was the business partner of Julia Hobsbawm when they formed the PR company Hobsbawm Macaulay Communications in 1992. Hobsbawm Macaulay’s clients included the ‘New Statesman’, the Labour Party and trade unions.

In 1996, the year that William Hague announced the forthcoming Waterhouse Inquiry, the ‘New Statesman’ published an article by Richard Webster entitled ‘Can a Whistle-Blower Be Wrong?’. The article libelled Alison Taylor, the social worker from Gwynedd who spent years blowing the whistle on the abuse of kids in care in Wales only to be sacked by Gwynedd County Council. Alison sued and won, representing herself. The ‘New Statesman’ subsequently admitted that they published the article because they knew that she could not afford to employ legal representation if she sued. Richard Webster was the author of ‘The Secret of Bryn Estyn’ and maintained that the Secret was that there was no paedophile ring, Bryn Estyn was just a rather mediocre children’s home. Richard Webster spent a lot of time and money researching Bryn Estyn and associated matters and no-one has ever found out who footed the bill for it all. Richard Webster believed that the problem was one of vulnerable people naming innocent social workers and others as a result of discredited therapeutic techniques. The naming of innocent people was going on in north Wales but the targets were being encouraged to name people – often people from their pasts – who had definitely NOT abused them after they had named other people, including NHS and social services staff, who had been involved in abuse. People were certainly tied up in knots but no-one could have been involved with the Social Services, mental health services and criminal justice system in north Wales during the 1970s, 80s and 90s and not realised that very, very abusive people were staffing and managing those sectors and that corrupt people at Cabinet level and in the highest echelons of the civil service were protecting them.

The ‘New Statesman’ was owned by Geoffrey Robinson, who has been the Labour MP for Coventry North West since 1976. Geoffrey Robinson was the one who precipitated Mandelson’s first resignation after he gave Mandy that undeclared loan to enable Mandy to buy a posh house. Kids from Coventry were sent to children’s homes in north Wales. Dr Colin Berry, a Top Doc from Walsgrave Hospital in Coventry, was one of those who in 1989, assisted Bluglass in concealing the criminality of Dafydd and the gang, as organised by Deirdre and chums at the Welsh Office.

Ron Evans, the crooked lawyer employed for years by Gwynedd County Council – who in his efforts to conceal the abuse of children and psych patients forged documentation and encouraged NHS and social services staff to perjure themselves -has a daughter who is also a lawyer and entered the civil service. She worked/works as an aide to Mandelson and was in that job in 2011. Her mum is a magistrate and was a lecturer in the School of History at Bangor University, the Dept in which Merfyn Jones held his Chair.

Sarah Brown did a degree in psychology at Bristol University at the same time as Sarah Jenkins, a girl from Bangor did. Sarah Jenkins’s mother was Sheila Jenkins, a psychiatric social worker with the Arfon CMHT. Sheila lied to the police about psych patients, breached confidence and when she felt like it told bare faced lies about ‘clients’. Sheila Jenkins was involved with Prof Mark Williams’s Mindfulness fraud, as was Jenkins’s immediate boss, Keith Fearns.

After Sarah Jenkins graduated in 1984, she returned to Gwynedd for a while and lived in a house at Llandegfan on Anglesey that she rented from Dr D.G.E. Wood, the corrupt GP who was facilitating the trafficking gang. Sarah was a Labour Party supporter, as I think was her mother. She shared the house with Christine Lippai, a girl whom I’d been a student at UCNW with. Christine knew about a related paedophile ring in the west country and she also knew, from UCNW, two other students who were targets of Wood and the gang, but I don’t know if Christine knew that so many of their troubles were because they had been targeted.

 

Sarah Brown has been a friend of Julia Hobsbawm’s since they were at Camden School for Girls together. Sarah married her Teddy Bear in 2000, the year that the Waterhouse Report was published. Sarah left Hobsbawm Macaulay in Oct 2001 after finding out she was pregnant with her first child.

Julia Hobsbawm’s family had a second home in Croesor in Gwynedd for many years, until 1979 or so. Julia’s father Eric was friends with Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, his family and their friends from the Bloomsbury Set in London. Some of those in that network were involved with organised abuse themselves and many more were actively concealing it. They all knew about Dafydd and the gang. Eric Hobsbawm was mates with Ralph Miliband, Ed’s dad. Ed worked for Gordon before Ed became an MP and Ed’s now legendary Uncle Harry was a Top Doc at Guy’s who knew many who were colluding with Dafydd. See post ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’.

Here’s the shipwreck, after all those years of living it up in paradise:

Merfyn Jones grew up in Llanfrothen, knew the second home crowd, including the Hobsbawms and knew about the abuse gang. Harold Wilson’s mate Asa Briggs who was part of the gang went after Merfyn’s blood when he was at Sussex University and was involved in an anti-Vietnam protest in 1967. See post ‘Anthem For Doomed Youth’.

I know all about the Lord of the Rings, but I’ve now discovered Deirdre, the Lady of the Rings. Who in 2001, before she was responsible for ignoring the abuse and deaths of psych patients at the hands of people who were facilitating a paedophile gang, was appointed as an independent member to the House of Lords Appointments Commission.

Since January 2004 Deirdre has Chaired the BUPA Foundation. Deirde is also: President, Royal Medical Benevolent Fund; Non-executive Director of Dwr Cymru Welsh Water; Vice-President, Marie Curie Cancer Care; Member, Science Committee for Cancer Research UK (for details of the endemic research fraud in CR UK, see post ‘Oh Lordy! It’s CR UK’).

 

The Chairman of the Mental Health Act Commission in 1994, when Dafydd et al were failing to respond to serious complaints about Dafydd who along with his colleagues was lying, perjuring, planting bricks yet were still deemed to be Responsible Medical Officers given powers to bang people up for life without trial and yes, even these days, give them a lobotomy if they really are frightening the Top Doctors, was Louis Blom-Cooper QC. Louis Chaired that Commission when his two Commissioners met with F, Jeff Crowther and me and admitted that they knew that there had been numerous complaints about Dafydd sexually abusing patients, stretching back as far as the 1960s. They then failed to investigate the complaint that F and I had made about Dafydd and others.

Blom-Cooper was appointed to Chair the first Public Inquiry into Ashworth Hospital on Merseyside in the early 1990s. Ashworth Hospital was run by Dafydd’s mates and many of the patients had been sent there by Dafydd and the gang. There were complaints from Ashworth patients to the Mental Health Act Commission. Blom-Cooper was appointed as Chair of the MHAC in 1987. In 1987, David Ewart, of the MHAC’s Liverpool office, conspired with Dafydd, the Home Office and numerous others to frame and imprison me for ‘attempting to stab a doctor’. See previous posts eg. ‘Workers Play Time’. Ashworth was subjected to a second Public Inquiry not long after Blom-Cooper Chaired the first one, after a patient was beaten to death by the Angels. The person assigned to investigate the murder was Professor Robert Bluglass, who chose two Angels to assist him in this; one was a senior Angel from Bluglass’s own unit, the Reaside Clinic in Birmingham, the other was one of Dafydd’s senior Angels from Clwyd Health Authority. See previous posts eg.’Security, Security’.

Sir Louis Jacques Blom-Cooper (27 March 1926 – 19 September 2018) was a lawyer specialising in public and administrative law. Louis Blom-Cooper was educated at Port Regis School, Seaford College, University of British Columbia, King’s College (Blom-Cooper graduated from there in 1952, so he was at King’s with the Top Docs who facilitated the trafficking gang), the University of Amsterdam and at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge.

Blom-Cooper was an academic at London University, 1962-84, while Lord Brian Flowers, Swansea’s famous son, used his knowledge of research fraud, patients harm and the facilitating of the Westminster Paedophile Ring by Dafydd et al to climb to the top and ensure that it all continued. Prior to this he was a columnist for ‘The Observer’, which was owned by the Astor family and edited by David Astor. In spite of his liberal credentials, David did much fancy footwork to ensure that his brother Bill was covered in rather less slurry as a result of the Profumo Affair than he would otherwise have been. It was all blamed on Stephen Ward who most helpfully killed himself after the Top Docs didn’t work to hard to stop him; Christine Keeler, who went to prison for perjury, even though she was terrified and had been threatened at gunpoint; and Bill’s third wife Bronwen. When Bronwen met and married Bill she was a charming, beautiful, stunning, witty model. After Profumo, she was a Welsh slapper who’d gone to school in Dolgellau and was no better than she ought to be, so she was kicked out of Cliveden with her two young children and banished to downtown Surrey. See previous posts.

One journo who worked for ‘The Observer’ for many years until she fell out with Donald Trelford not long after he became Editor was Norah Beloff. Norah’s husband – she married later in life – also worked for ‘The Observer’. Not only that, but Norah was an old hand with Reuters too. Norah was the sister of Lord Max Beloff, a friend of the Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council, Ioan Bowen Rees. Lord Max was involved with the establishment of the University of Buckinghamshire, along with Dr John W. Paulley, who concealed organised abuse in Suffolk. See previous posts.

Before John Allen moved to north Wales to open the Bryn Alyn Community, he lived in Suffolk. One of his neighbours was John Jermyn, Lord Bristol, who’s family seat was in Suffolk. John Jermyn was a hopelessly addicted HIV positive user of, on his own estimate, thousands of rent boys. Jermyn died during the Waterhouse Inquiry, as did his brother Nicholas who had not led a lifestyle anything like John Jermyn’s but knew a great deal about it. Nicholas was left to die by the Top Docs in exactly the same way that so many less privileged Hergest patients were. See post ‘Captain Swing And His Crew’.

Thatch became Chancellor of the University of Buckingham and a number of Lord Max’s relations were given academic posts there. See previous posts. Lord Max’s son was Michael Beloff QC, Cherie’s colleague and a good friend of Cherie and Miranda, who in his role as legal adviser to Municipal Mutual, the insurers of Clwyd County Council as well as the North Wales Police, in 1996 ensured that no-one except for Clwyd’s and Municipal’s lawyers, ever got to read the Jillings Report into the abuse of children in the care of Clwyd County Council since 1974. See post ‘It’s A Piece of Cake…’

Blom-Cooper was a Judge in the Court of Appeal of Jersey and of Guernsey, 1988-96. Anyone for Haut de la Garenne?

Sad Satan - Nejzvláštnější hororová hra - Paraweb

 

Blom-Cooper Chaired more than a dozen Public Inquiries, including the Guns for Antigua scandal – who could have been a safer pair of hands?? – and the Jasmine Beckford Inquiry. He sat as a Deputy High Court Judge on housing and judicial review cases until 1996. That is so reassuring.

Blom-Cooper was well known for his regulatory work, particularly as Chair of the Press Council, subsequently known as the PCC and later as the founding Chair of the premium rate telephone regulator, ICSTIS now PhonepayPlus. So that was why the press published whatever they wanted and everyone was fleeced by the phones companies.

In 1992 Blom-Cooper was appointed by the N Ireland Secretary as the first Independent Commissioner for the Holding Centres, retaining the appointment until 1997. Who was the N Ireland Secretary at the time? Patrick Mayhew. Who had just one year previously in his capacity as Attorney General authorised my prosecution for contempt of court, although he knew that Tony and Sadie Francis had lied on oath; the solicitor Ann Ball of Hempsons knew that as well, as did the MDU. Paddy had previously authorised some more prosecutions of me on the basis of what everybody involved knew was the perjury of Top Docs, social workers and Angels. Oh well, witnesses were found dead, but at least Paddy got a promotion out of it and then a peerage in 1997, after the Waterhouse Inquiry began. Paddy was destined for great things even as a young barrister. In 1973, he was one of those who ensured that Dr Morris Fraser was allowed to continue working as a child psychiatrist after Fraser had been convicted of sex offences on children. Fraser was an Expert on childhood trauma and was involved with Kincora Boys’ Homes. Fraser later moved to England and worked at Springfield Hospital, the mental health unit attached to St George’s, as well as UCL.

Blom-Cooper was subsequently called to the Bar of N Ireland and granted Silk in N Ireland. Blom-Cooper was also Counsel to the Saville Inquiry, acting for the N Ireland Civil Rights Association. Just don’t mention Kincora.

Blom-Cooper’s 1997 book The Birmingham Six and Other Cases considered recent miscarriages of justice. It prompted an unsuccessful libel action in the Irish courts from Gerry Hunter and Hugh Callaghan. Of course their action failed, it’s not as if Louis would ever have lied his arse off is it?  Initially Blom-Cooper argued that the publication of the book in Ireland was outside of his control. When this failed, he relied on European Convention on Human Rights #Article 10 – Right to Freedom of Expression and the newly formulated defence of Qualified privilege – provided good practice was followed it was acceptable to get things wrong. Louis knew all about getting things wrong. Previously inaccuracy would have led to financial penalty. Despite this, solicitor Gareth Peirce accused Blom-Cooper of “shoddy research” and “total nonsense” in respect of the book. Gareth is someone else who ignored what was happening to us in north Wales.

Charged with terrorist offences? Need defending? No problem! Call Gareth Peirce and Mr Mansfield.

Bothered by an insane old man in north Wales? Er, sorry, Mr Mansfield is busy with a big trial, ooh it’ll be taking up all of his time for the next four and a half years… All other members of the Mansfield Community are fully engaged elsewhere as well I’m afraid… It’s the Denbigh dungeon for you…Have you tried MIND and the Community Health Council??

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

Blom-Cooper was involved in the foundation of Amnesty International in 1961. Martin Ennals, the brother of Dafydd’s mate Lord David Ennals, was General Secretary of Amnesty for years. It was at Blom-Cooper’s suggestion that Peter Benenson wrote to David Astor proprietor of ‘The Observer’ to publicise the campaign which launched Amnesty. Blom-Cooper also took part in a small committee of individuals who helped carry through the appeal which led to Amnesty International. For more details about Amnesty and those involved, including Polly Toynbee, see post ‘Dogma and Disarray?’.

Blom-Cooper was also a Patron of Prisoners Abroad, a registered charidee which supports Britons who are held overseas and was a Trustee of the Howard League for Penal Reform. Meanwhile at the North Wales Hospital and Ashworth…

Blom-Cooper was a member of the Athenaeum, as was Savile. The Athenaeum is the preferred club for Top Docs and Vice Chancellors. Indeed, Merfyn is a member. I’m only surprised that his dinner wasn’t laced. Would you like some sushi with a hint of polonium Professor Jones? It’s awfully good at this time of year. By the way, a friend of mine has a lovely house that has just come up for rent, in Salisbury, ooh it would suit a well-dressed man.

Salisbury Sehenswürdigkeiten: 65 Attraktionen ansehen ...

Blom-Cooper’s published works included ‘Occupational Therapy -An Emerging Profession in Health Care’ (1989). Now here’s an Interesting Fact. The Bastard of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Lord John Walton, held one of the most senior roles in the occupational therapists’ professional association. Walton was not a man who would have taken the role of an OT seriously and all of his other public positions were concerned with science or medicine. The only whistleblower in the mental health services in north Wales was a senior occupational therapist. Walton only decided that he would oversee the OTs professional body after this whistleblower had blown so many whistles that he had become to go-to man for patients who had been assaulted or fitted up in Court by his colleagues. The Hergest Unit tried to fit him up for inappropriate relationships with patients, then they tried to simply intimidate and bully him out of his job. He once told me that the only reason that he ever survived until retirement was that OTs have a different management structure and Alun Davies and the corrupt NHS managers were not his line managers.

Paedophiles In Distress, Call John Walton!!!

 

Why was any of this ever allowed to go on? There are people who are undoubtedly only alive and not in prison because the Hergest whistleblower refused to lie on oath, WHY was the Bastard of Newcastle-upon-Tyne allowed to try and stymy the one professional in the mental health services in Gwynedd who flatly refused to succumb to the threats of a gang of paedophiles?

 

Blom-Cooper’s wife Jane predeceased him in 2007. ‘The Guardian’ published an obituary:

Jane Blom-Cooper, who has died aged 67 of cancer, possessed two pearls of great price – passion and compassion. She brought them to bear on the many purposes she achieved, and on the host of people that her personality and ability drew to her.

Born Jane Smither to an East Anglian family, she was brought up in her early years by her grandmother, and hardly knew her father until his return from the second world war. Her independent spirit – rebelliousness towards some conventions and traditions was to remain with her – showed in various early jobs. These included a film project in Morocco and being assistant purser on a Cunard passenger liner. She would say later that not much behaviour could surprise her after what she witnessed on board ship.

Not even that of a gang of paedophiles whom her husband did all that he could to assist.

Not academically inclined at school, she was led by her social and political concerns to gain a social work qualification at Ruskin College, Oxford, in 1965,

Matt Arnold, the Head of Bryn Estyn, met Peter Howarth – who was imprisoned for a series of sexual assaults on the boys in his care at Bryn Estyn in 1994 while Jane’s husband ignored the other members of Howarth’s gang when F and I were screaming as loudly as we could in his direction in the very month that Howarth was jailed – when Arnold was teaching at Ruskin College in 1966. Prezza was a student at Ruskin at the same time. Perhaps Prezza served the drinks on the Cunard boat, where the behaviour on board rendered Jane unshockable?

and worked in the field of social services childcare in Oxfordshire until 1970

There was an organised gang in Oxfordshire at the time, concealed by social worker Barbara Kahan, who in the early 1970s was appointed a social work adviser to Keith Joseph in Heath’s Gov’t. Babs continued in Gov’t advisory work for years and in the early 1990s helped conceal the extent of the abuse of kids in care in Staffordshire (see post ‘Always On The Side Of The Children’).

and in the London borough of Camden until 1972.

Paedophiles in distress! Call Dame Barbara Mills/Tessa Jowell/famille Hobsbawm…

Via a research project in 1967 at Bedford College, London, she met the lawyer Louis Blom-Cooper.

Bertrand Russell’s son Conrad Russell was an historian at Bedford College for much of his academic career. Bertrand was one of Sir Clough’s mates and lived near Croesor when the Captain and his friends were swinging…

Marriage to him in 1970 meant that she joined forces with his independence of mind and involvement in causes of justice and liberty.

Oh please, this is overdoing it…

Her quarter-century career as a magistrate, particularly in the cause of youth justice, was a major life purpose.

Jesus Christ.

The need for social housing via the Circle 33 Housing Trust in London and the south-east was another, and she played an integral part in the architectural competition for the Old Ford affordable housing development in east London.

Give me Arundells with Ted in situ, it couldn’t possibly be worse than anything arranged by Jane.

With her brother David, she devoted much time and energy to enlarging greatly the chalk-quarrying business in Suffolk begun by their father.

In the quest for human rights and justice of course. SUFFOLK. Er, John Allan and John Jermyn???

Somehow she found time, too, for judicial appointments panels and prison reform causes;

Bluglass, Colin Berry and Dafydd’s other umbrella David Mawson were all on the Parole Board. And whoever could forget Lord Longford who knew all about Dafydd, as did members of his extended family, including Harriet, Lady Antonia, Harold Pinter (see post ‘Comedies Of Menace’)…

charities, including Parents for Children, Young Minds and Medical Aid to Palestine; school governorship;

I’ll just fetch the sick bucket

and even leading the rescue of a Shropshire inn and brewery.

The Real Ale Twats in Bangor knew about Dafydd’s gang, which had an outpost in Shropshire after John Allen opened a children’s home there.

Her deepest belief was in family life and its importance, giving equally of herself to her children, Martha, Hannah and George, and Hannah’s son Louis, and to her stepchildren, Alison, Jeremy and Keith, and to Alison’s two children.

They’ve bred.

Over the years, Jane temporarily added to her family numerous young people who needed a home as well as a place to stay.

Aaaarggghh…

In her many different roles, she encouraged others, faced down naysayers, cajoled committees, removed obstacles, took charge when there was much to do or difficulties piled high.

I wish that I’d known, I’d have just flattened her.

For she possessed the genuine quality of leadership – hard to define, but immediately recognisable.

I’m on all the Committees and my husband is Sir Louis.

Her steady eyes, generous smile, expressive hands and welcoming laugh helped put many – men and women alike – at their ease, and to then become her natural allies.

Mad psycho-like glare under the guise of ‘eye contact’; snarl with a good coating of angry red lipstick; expressive hands – er unwanted touching???

When illness stole upon her, she fought it with bravery and tenacity.

It was cancer, the research has been fabricated for the last three decades, by the mates of Jane and her husband. Doesn’t matter how brave and tenacious you are.

Although it often appeared that Jane was driven by some higher purpose,

Keeping a lid on absolutely all of it

she held to no particular faith other than an unwavering belief that she could change things for the better. The testament to that was all around her and lives on in her children, her family and friends, who loved and admired her.

Most of the witnesses to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal are dead. Many died while Jane and her husband ignored their screams.

 

 

A caring female relative like Jane is always useful, Greville Janner had one – in addition to his daughters Rabbi Laura and Marion the Mental Health Campaigner who gave birth to that Tibetan terrier as previously featured on this blog of course – but I only discovered that a couple of days ago. Greville had a sister, Ruth Lady Morris of Kenwood, CBE. Ruth can be found starring on the website of Manuel Swaden solicitors, which tells us that

Ruth joined Manuel Swaden in 2002 as a consultant to the Property team. Prior to that, she was Chairman of Partners at Janners and subsequently a consultant at Paisners and then Berwin Leighton Paisners. A recognised property lawyer, she spent many years specialising in the legal aspects of retail warehousing and now provides a wide range of commercial property advice to clients who rely on her expertise and guidance. Ruth has the loyalty of many longstanding clients to whom she has provided advice through the generations. Among her many other pursuits, she was a Vice-President of ‘Woman of the Year Lunch & Assembly’, a Chairman of Tribunals and is a Trustee of several charitable trusts as well as being a director of the Connaught Brown art gallery. In 2014 Ruth was awarded a CBE for services to the community. Ruth retired in October 2017 after 60 years on the roll’.

60 years, it is almost as terrifying as Trumpers.

 

There is a most illuminating interview with Ruth on the Spark 21 website which reveals what those who are not mates of Dafydd and the Piranha brothers are up against:

Let me start by saying that in my day…there were only 28 women a year who qualified, so it was quite a unique profession. I had a five-year article…a five-year traineeship and during that five years, I had two periods of six months which we were allowed off to go to law school, and we had to learn everything in those two six months there were two other trainees with me, one of whom went on to be a Law Commissioner, even though our firm was quite small, and the other was one of the Heads of the Legal department at Scotland Yard….

I am sure that Ruth and the Head of the Legal Dept at Scotland Yard kept in touch… Anyone going to the Woman of the Year Lunch?

 

Finally, while both the Tory and Labour Parties fight among themselves and with everyone else, ‘The Daily Post’ recently ran an article about a scrap in north Wales that has caused nearly as much trouble. A group of fund-raisers from Colwyn Bay blacked up during an event to raise money for the Betsi Heath Board’s baby charidee ‘Cuddles’ and the Board refused the donation because they were ‘advised’ that blacking up was wholly unacceptable. The fund-raisers are deeply offended, local people are fuming but a black barrister gave an interview to the ‘Daily Post’ saying that the fund raisers ought to Learn Their Black History. They are from Colwyn Bay, they are not likely to know much about Black History. Furthermore, if somebody wants them to find out about Black History, try approaching them in a positive friendly manner and offer to put on an exhibition or a lecture, don’t appear in the local newspaper and insult them all. They really won’t have been meaning to insult black people. By the way barrister, I too think that it is a good thing to be aware of histories from other parts of the world, but the Betsi Board is in special measures after hosting the biggest patient abuse scandal that the UK has ever seen, it is dangerous and bankrupt and a gang of paedophiles chased out a previous Chairman because he wasn’t one of them. That is a far greater threat to the health and well-being of the population of north Wales than some men from the pub in Colwyn Bay who are of the vintage to remember the Black and White Minstrels and unwittingly offended an adviser to the Best Board.

Before Merfyn was appointed Chairman of the Betsi and kicked out by a gang of criminals, he was Guvnor of the BBC for Wales. In 2005 I went to a meet the Guvnors evening at Cardiff and Michael Grade, then the Chairman of the BBC and Guvnor Ruth Deech, made offensive racist comments about Welsh people. People in the audience were offended and Merfyn made the point that any sort of racial stereotyping was unacceptable. Grade and Deech continued with their anti-Welsh comments.

Michael Grade is Jewish. I have blogged previously about how my friend who was supporting me in the face of what was happening to me at the hands of the gang in north Wales got into serious trouble in the summer of 1985. She was working at the box office at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and refused to pull strings to get Samuel Brittan, the FT journo who was the brother of Leon Brittan the then Home Secretary, tickets which had sold out and a hotel room when every hotel in Edinburgh was fully booked. Samuel wrote to his big mate Michael Grade demanding my mate’s head on a plate and Grade then complained to my friend’s boss. My friend received a copy of Grade’s letter to Samuel; Grade told Samuel that he was ‘appalled’ at my friend’s ‘rudeness’ and that he would make sure that Sam got a ticket, ‘even if I have to give you mine!’.

Leon Brittan at the time was actively concealing the Westminster Paedophile Ring as well as the criminality of Dafydd and the gang.

  • Sad Satan - Nejzvláštnější hororová hra - Paraweb
  • British child abuser Sir Jimmy Savile and the Thatcher ...

 

Leon Brittan is Jewish. So is Edwina Currie, who did not raise the alarm when Trumpers, Thatcher’s junior Health Minister, appointed Jimmy Savile to the management task force of Broadmoor; Edwina grew up in the Jewish community in Liverpool. Leo, Dannie and Wilfred Abse, who all facilitated the Westminster Paedophile Ring and Dafydd’s gang, were Jewish and from south Wales. Sir William Asscher was Jewish.

Now Mr Grade, were you doing favours for Samuel Brittan because you were simply mates, or because you too were part of the network concealing the Westminster Paedophile Ring – which was interlinked with the sex abuse ring in your own industry of entertainment – or because you are a shameless toady who knew that doing favours for the relatives of corrupt Cabinet Ministers would stand you in good stead? Or was it an act of cultural solidarity with a fellow Jewish person? Because Merfyn is someone who, like you, grew up in a community which was facilitating a vicious paedophile ring and to cover their tracks some of the people involved used the umbrella of language, culture and national solidarity. So Merfyn had buckets of slurry thrown at him by people waving those flags who accused him of being a sell-out and then he had to work with pompous Englishers like you who insulted him for being Welsh. The difference between you Grade and Merfyn is that he refused to do favours for a gang of paedophiles…

There is not a problem with ‘Jews abusing children’. There is a problem with child abusers involved in very serious criminality using whatever networks are available to them to protect themselves.

Here are just a few things about Greville Janner that I have not yet blogged:

Janner was President of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, 1978-84. In Parliament, and outside, he was involved in campaigning for the War Crimes Act 1991, lobbying the Thatcher Gov’t to allow legislation to bring those responsible for Nazi atrocities (and now resident in Britain) to justice. He was also a Vice-President of the World Jewish Congress until 2009 and of the Jewish Leadership Council until 2015. He was President of the National Council for Soviet Jewry (1979–85) and the Commonwealth Jewish Council.

In 1988 Janner co-founded the Holocaust Educational Trust with Merlyn Rees, a body which successfully persuaded the British government to add teaching about the Holocaust to the National Curriculum in 1988. Janner stood down from the role in 2012. The Lord Janner Scholarship provides funding for ten schools to take part in the Trust’s educational programmes each year.

Merlyn Rees was originally from south Wales and the Labour MP for a Leeds constituency, 1963-92. Throughout his political career, Rees – later Lord Merlyn-Rees – concealed the Westminster Paedophile Ring, as an MP for Jimmy Savile HQ, as Home Secretary and as the N Ireland Secretary. When Cherie’s mate Michael Beloff QC, in his capacity as legal adviser to Municipal Mutual, suppressed the Jillings Report in 1996, Merlyn Rees was a Director of Municipal Mutual. By 1996, the drama teacher John Owen, who taught at a school in Pontypridd, had been abusing his pupils for many, many years and the WJEC and Mid-Glamorgan Education Authority had colluded with the abuse. See post ‘Yet More Inglorious Bastards’. In 1996, Ron Davies was the Shadow Secretary of State for Wales and Miranda appointed him Secretary of State when Miranda became PM in May 1997. Before Ron was elected as the MP for Caerphilly in 1983, he was an adviser to Mid-Glamorgan Education Authority. Merfyn’s friend, the junior Minister in Miranda’s Gov’t who cleared my name after Dafydd’s gang tried to have me struck off the teaching register in 2004, was from Pontypridd, but unlike Merlyn Rees he wouldn’t collude with a gang of paedophiles so he was named in the media as having ‘let a paedophile remain in teaching’ and refused a peerage. Then the gang went for the jugular of his friend, the VC of Bangor University…

Janner ‘sought to foster good relations between different faiths and religions’ and wrote about this issue in his book One Hand Alone Cannot Clap. He co-founded (along with Prince Hassan of Jordan) the Coexistence Trust, a charidee to combat Islamophobia and antisemitism. Janner became Baron Janner of Braunstone in 1997. Janner was President and an Officer of the All-Parliamentary Group against Anti-Semitism, was associated with the Labour Friends of Israel and in 2002 backed Stephen Byers to be Chairman.

 

 

The Point Is To Change It

Previous posts and my post ‘Lest We Forget’ discuss the complete destabilisation of Bangor University by Dafydd’s gang and their associates from 2003 onwards, the witch-hunt to which my PhD supervisor and his wife were subjected and the plan to completely shaft the then VC, Merfyn Jones, because I had gained a PhD, was undertaking post-doc work and Brown and I had begun publishing about the excesses of the mental health services. Many paedophiles’ friends who were at each other’s throats united with a common purpose because the criminality that they had all been involved with for years was just so serious. The leader of the pack was Prof Fergus Lowe of the School of Psychology, who had built his career and his power base on overthrowing Dafydd’s influence in the University in the late 1980s and replacing it with his own equally toxic influence (see previous posts eg. ‘He’s Not The Messiah, He’s A Very Naughty Boy’ and ‘Feet In Chains’.)

As described in ‘Lest We Forget’, I realised that things were getting very nasty when I received a message from someone who’s daughter had died in the care of the mental health services in Powys telling me that a TV journo wanted to make a documentary on the appalling state of mental health care in the UK and they were interested in my story, yet the day before filming was due to begin the journo asked me to smear the VC when I was interviewed. When I refused I was told that filming could go ahead when I changed my mind. I heard no more, but I had previously been asked by an Angel who worked at Bangor University to place damaging untrue stories in the press about Merfyn after this Angel read an interview that I had given to a newspaper regarding the mental health services in Gwynedd…

Other gems were me being told that Professor Dylan Jones-Evans, an adviser to the Tory Party, intended to ‘blacken Merfyn’s name’ but he was going to wait until Merfyn’s wife had died before doing so, because it ‘will look bad’ if he did it while Nerys was terminally ill. Why was Nerys dying?? Just the little matter of the Top Docs at the Walton Centre finding that there was ‘nothing that they could do’ with regard to Nerys’s brain tumour. Of course some people do die from brain tumours, but Nerys died at a most convenient time for all those people who had stated that ‘we will get rid of him [Merfyn]’ before Nerys ever became ill. Dafydd’s gang ran the Walton Centre (see previous posts). Nerys had crossed the path of the gang herself in the early 1990s, which had resulted in fallacious allegations being made in ‘The Guardian’ about a senior sociologist at Bangor and Nerys was never forgiven (see post ‘Badlands’). Years later she married Merfyn and when he was appointed VC it was just too much for those we know and love to cope with.

At about the same time that Nerys died, a social worker who had been a colleague of Dafydd’s gang, along with her husband, was singing the praises of the Walton Centre who had successfully treated her for a brain tumour and now she was even back at work!

Ah the doctors they were wonderful!

Nerys and Merfyn were/are not neurosurgeons. How would they have ever known if the Top Docs – Dafydd’s associates – had told a few porkies about Nerys’s condition? Neither could they have relied on the second opinion of any other Top Docs; as experience has shown with me, Brown and two other witnesses, cross the paths of Dafydd and the gang and you will not get effective treatment no matter how ill you are and no Top Doctor at all will admit the truth, even if they keep a civil tongue in their head, a smile on their face and indulge in their very best ‘ooh don’t worry, we’ll look after you dear’. I have 30 years worth of documentation which demonstrates that.

At the same time that Dylan was waiting for Nerys to die so that he could blacken Merfyn’s name, another group of paedophiles’ friends were boasting about their plans to frame Merfyn for a crime.

Just before Nerys died, Fungus was telling Bangor University staff that they could forget about Merfyn now, he was finished and Fungus was in control. Dylan however was seriously pissed off because Merfyn ‘had been on his last legs but because he’s had compassionate leave he’s looking a bit better’.

It was widely known in the University that these things were happening, it was openly discussed. I was told that the RAE results were going to be terrible because so many people had co-ordinated to ensure a poor outcome to embarrass Merfyn, because his strategy was to build Bangor into a university with a solid research base. When Merfyn addressed the staff of the School of Education in his capacity as VC, I watched as, at 3-30 pm, the alarms of the watches of nearly everyone in the room went off simultaneously and they all walked out together, leaving Merfyn, my PhD supervisor and one Professor alone in the room with the post-lecture buffet. Many of those who staged the walk-out had previously worked as teachers in Gwynedd when that paedophile gang caused havoc, particularly among SEN kids. Brown and I had a lovely time with that buffet but if I’d been Merfyn I’d have sacked every one of those bastards. The associates of a gang of paedophiles on £40-50k pa who bugger off home at 3-30 pm and make a point of doing so when the VC has arrived to discuss the future of the University…

After the paedophiles’ friends walked out, an e mail was circulated to everyone in the School of Education from an ex-PE teacher inviting all to a meeting to discuss the very big threat that Merfyn posed to them what with his dangerous ideas of building up the research base of the University. My PhD supervisor turned up to find out what was going on only to find himself barred from entry. Paedophiles’ friends only!!!

Other joys at Bangor University at the time were the Finance Clerks Who Say Ni, who modelled themselves on the Knight Who Say Ni in ‘Monty Python and the Holy Grail’. None Shall Pass…

When we were writing big research grant bids which needed to be accompanied by spreadsheets detailing projected staff costs, materials, everything down to the last penny – which takes days and was the job of the finance dept – some of the finance clerks (not all, but enough of them to cause chaos) would simply say ‘you fill in the spreadsheet’ when they were presented with the documentation. They didn’t just do this to post-docs, I saw the delightful Gareth Who Said Ni flatly refuse to complete the spreadsheet needed by a senior Professor. The Finance Clerks Who Said Ni however did manage to fill in the spreadsheets required by Fungus and the Psychologists and Fungus didn’t even have to chop down a tree with a herring or give the Finance Clerks Who Said Ni a shrubbery. Faced with the Finance Clerks Who Said Ni, I completed my own spreadsheets. The procedure was that the bids had to then be signed off by the Chief Accountant. So I went over to his office, only to find that he was ‘in a meeting with the Psychology Dept and will not be available until next week’. By which time the deadline for submitting the bid would have passed. So the Chief Accountant Said Ni as well.

After the Finance Clerks Who Said Ni successfully caused serious problems, the Translators Said Ni. Because Bangor University is bilingual, all public lectures have to be accompanied with Welsh-English translation facilities and I and my colleagues used to do that for our seminars as well. As the paedophiles’ friends became angrier and angrier, we noticed that translators who had been booked weeks in advance either didn’t turn up to the events or turned up so late that we were unable to hold the lecture or seminar. We couldn’t go ahead without the Translators Who Said Ni because it would contravene the bilingual policy.

The Translators didn’t just Say Ni to small seminars held by my colleagues and I. The Translators Said Ni to Merfyn as well and they did it in spectacular style. At one major public lecture given by the VC which had been very heavily advertised and was fairly crucial, all the translating equipment was checked at the start of the lecture, as usual. It was working. Merfyn began giving the lecture – in Welsh – so all the English speakers put their headphones on. My headphones failed first. I signalled to the translator; I was ignored. Then other people’s headphones failed; they were ignored… Then our headphones came back on again, as Merfyn continued speaking. Then, through everyone’s headphones, loud and clear, came the sound of someone having a pee in the bogs next door. There is no way that was an accident, a Translator Who Said Ni took a microphone into the bog with them and ensured that the sound of them piddling was transmitted into everyone’s headphones. Merfyn had no idea what was happening but he noticed the expressions on the faces of those in the lecture and knew that something was going on. Everyone was far too polite to tell him what the Translators Who Said Ni had done, so after the lecture I told him: They recorded themselves pissing in the loos and made sure that the whole audience heard.

A mole has told me that the Translators Who Said Ni staged these happenings particularly when I was at the events. As usual, the desire of the paedophiles’ friends to cause problems for me screwed things up for a lot of other people as well.

OK Finance Clerks and Translators Who Said Ni, now I’m going to tell my readers where this spiteful campaign against me, my PhD supervisor and Merfyn ended up and I look forward to you trying to justify what you all resorted to.

 

Towards the end of his term as VC, Merfyn was appointed as a member of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board. The excesses of the NW Wales NHS Trust, the mortality rate, the litigation and the downright criminality of that Trust (see previous posts) had become so excruciatingly embarrassing that even the Welsh Gov’t could take no more and Edwina Hart, the then Health Minister, dissolved the Trust, along with the other two lethal, disastrous Trusts in north Wales and replaced them with the Betsi.

We cracked open the champagne, literally, foolishly believing that the services of the bunch of crooks and conmen – all associates of Dafydd – who had caused such destruction in the NHS in north Wales would now be dispensed with. Sadly not. Edwina’s past as a trade unionist and politician who had ignored so much criminality on the part of those we know and love meant that she was deeply compromised and couldn’t deal with them. There was a ‘no redundancies’ agreement with the NHS unions and almost every single one of those lying crooked bastards was recycled into the Betsi Board at their previous salary level, although I had given Edwina Hart enough documentary evidence to have had some of them arrested and charged, particularly Martin Jones, the CEO and Elfed Roberts, the Chairman. See previous posts.

Elfed was the only one who was not recycled into the new Betsi; he was given a seat on the Board of the Welsh Ambulance Trust instead. Martin had a job created for him, as the Director of the Workforce. There were ructions, people in north Wales were outraged at these crooks who had overseen such suffering and chaos just being transferred over to the new organisation. The outcome was that they were surrounding Merfyn, who was a new face in the NHS and the new CEO of the Betsi, Mary Burrows.

I and someone who made a witness statement about the threats and harassment to which he had seen me subjected were told repeatedly that ‘they won’t win’ and ‘when they lose, your life won’t be worth living’. Mary received death threats and I was told by a charming character that ‘we’ll take her out’. NHS union reps turned up to Board meetings and discussed threatening tactics outside in the corridor before the meetings got underway. Martin Jones began a blog, ‘The Workforce Director’s Blog’, which was no more than a vehicle for undermining Mary Burrows; every post was full of veiled insults and threats that were understandable to those of us who knew what was happening behind the scenes. Lies were spread about Mary in the locality and there was race hatred whipped up, Mary being American. I sat in meetings and heard racist insults and abuse directed at Mary.

After some months of sitting as a Betsi Board member, Merfyn resigned as VC. This was because he had been appointed as a SPAD to Leighton Andrews, the Welsh Gov’ts Education Minister and it would have been a conflict of interest for Merfyn to have held both positions. A rumour was sent around the University by the paedophiles’ friends that Merfyn had been embezzling the University funds and that was why he resigned.

After a year of Mary and the Betsi Board doing their best to reign the paedophiles’ friends in, an even bigger mushroom cloud went up when Merfyn was appointed Chairman of the Betsi. What followed was a wonder to behold.

Elfed Roberts began a campaign of terror against Mary and Merfyn when the Menai Deli, a sandwich shop which supplied the WRVS cafe in Ysbyty Gwynedd, lost the contract to Ginsters, a company based in Leicester. Not that is was anything to do with Mary and Merfyn, it was a decision made by WRVS HQ. Elfed’s campaign was based on the alleged ‘discrimination against a small Welsh business’. The small Welsh business in question being the Menai Deli, which happened to be owned by Elfed’s mates. Furthermore, its only contract was with the WRVS cafe in Ysbyty Gwynedd. Elfed’s wife was a leading light in the WRVS in north Wales. The Menai Deli was nothing more than a sub-contractor with regard to the cafe and it had bagged the contract through nepotism, it was not a ‘small Welsh business’, it was a scam. ‘Butty Wars’ was all over the ‘Daily Post’ for weeks and got as far as the London-based newspapers. WRVS HQ were subjected to hate mail and threats and the whole business affected their fund raising. See previous posts. Butty Wars succeeded in making north Wales look dreadful, just a bunch of racist, anti-English neanderthals.

The image of Wales was further tarnished at about the same time when Peter Hain’s house was surrounded by pro-hunting protesters and them telling journalists that Peter Hain ‘isn’t even Welsh, he’s fucking South African’. (I think that he’s Kenyan actually.) By the way liberators, Peter Hain’s mates were blown up and killed when he was in South Africa because he and his friends fought a bunch of racist bastards; Peter Hain was a braver man than you wankers. He came to the UK because he would have been killed if he’d stayed in South Africa. Furthermore, because he still insisted upon defending the rights of black people in South Africa when he was in the UK, someone tried to fit him up for a bank robbery and even after he was cleared, the old git of a Presiding judge insulted him. That judge was Sir Alan King-Hamilton, a friend of Sir Ronnie Waterhouse, Sir Ronnie being the man who concealed the VIP paedophile ring run by Dafydd and the gang.

Oh so you’re going to protest outside Peter Hain’s house because he’s not Welsh?? Why don’t you take a few corrupt judges who assisted a gang of paedophiles along with you, I’d recommend Huw Daniel myself, Huw’s Welsh as well, his dad was one of the founders of Plaid (see post ‘Tan yn Llyn’). Huw Daniel has spent his whole life kicking Welsh people who aren’t as privileged as him in the teeth. Is that to your liking? After you’ve invited a few corrupt Welsh judges to join you outside Peter Hain’s house in your protest re his racial origins, go and get your DNA analysed. No, it won’t show that you are related to the ancient Welsh Princes, no matter what Dafydd Iwan thinks, but you will find that you share over 90% of your DNA with vegetable matter, as does every other human being on the planet. DNA’s like that, it’s not very helpful to racist idiots.

I remember the dear old NF slogan well: ‘Racial purity means national security.’ Unfortunately for the NF, the Brits are one of the most mixed ‘races’ on earth…

After the cause of Butty Wars was sadly lost, there was an attempt at a repeat performance when a lovely little Welsh company owned by Welsh people in the heart of Wales called Blas ar Fwyd lost its contract to supply the patients’ snacks trolley in Ysbyty Gwynedd with cakes containing even more sugar than Mr Kripling’s cakes. Who owns Blas ar Fwyd?? Dafydd’s son, Deiniol ap Dafydd.

Calon Lan!

Elfed and Dafydd only wanted the best for the patients of Ysbyty Gwynedd, which was why they ignored the sky high mortality rates and flogged the patients butties and snacks produced by businesses owned by their friends and relatives.

I knew someone who kept Elfed under observation during Butty Wars, while Elfed was picketing Ysbyty Gwynedd. Not only did Elfed use his time on the picket line to try to find tenants for one of the bungaloids that he owns, but he went in for making a few new friends on Facebook. However the silly old bugger was new to Facebook and he didn’t put any privacy settings up, so one could network among Elfed’s Facebook friends. Hilarious, there were retired coppers from forces known to have had problems with police corruption and the Chief Accountant of Bangor University was a Facebook friend of one of Elfed’s Facebook friends no less…

When Elfed was Chairman of the NW Wales NHS Trust, he had me repeatedly arrested, on one occasion for having pink hair and calling his car a penismobile. On another occasion Elfed had me arrested for ‘harassment’, the harassment being sending the Trust ‘reams and reams of e mails’. Which I did, I was trying to follow up a complaint that I had made after I’d been refused treatment and threatened by Angels and had been subjected to an attempt to frame me for a crime when I tried to access medical help . If somebody had investigated my complaint I would not have needed to have sent reams and reams of e mails. On that occasion, I was interviewed by a DC Steve Power, who admitted in front of the lawyer who accompanied me to the station, that Elfed had ordered my arrest because he was ‘fed up’ with me. Steve Power then told us that he was retiring in a matter of days anyway and that none of this was to do with him. I was released without charge. See post ‘After The Attempt To Frame Me…’.

I recognised DC Steve Power. He was the officer who some years previously had flatly refused to take down my complaint regarding an Angel and three healthcare assistants who had assaulted and injured me. The lawyer who witnessed DC Power’s taped confession re Elfed ordering my arrest because he was fed up with me was Frances Jones. I asked her to send me copies of Power’s taped confession but I heard no more from her. Frances Jones’s name appears on documents that my lawyers only sent me some three years ago. Frances was one of the lawyers involved in one of the attempts to frame and imprison me on the basis of the perjury of Gwynedd Social Services and Tony Francis et al back in the late 1980s/90s. See previous posts.

I saw Frances Jones again a few months after my arrest. She was sitting behind me at the memorial service for Prof Duncan Tanner, the Director of Research for Bangor University. Duncan died suddenly and unexpectedly in the care of Ysbyty Gwynedd, during a routine procedure that is not considered at all risky. Unless you’re in the hands of Ysbyty Gwynedd of course. At Duncan’s memorial service, a number of people insulted Merfyn. As Frances Jones sat behind me I heard her telling other people that the huge problems in Bangor University were a result of the VC.

No Frances, the problems were the result of the associates of a paedophile gang, who, including you, are a bunch of lying, multifaceted crooked bastards.

One of my friends in north Wales told me that Frances Jones is considered to be an excellent lawyer who is much in favour with ‘the villains of Anglesey’, ‘she gets them off every time’.

Anglesey County Council – located at Llangefni – has been famed for its corruption for many years and children in care on Anglesey were abused. Some Anglesey County Councillors went to prison and returned to their roles as Councillors when they were released.

Regular readers will know that Elfed was previously Acting Deputy Chief Constable of the North Wales Police and was obliged to leave the force under a cloud smelling strongly of corruption (see previous posts). Back in the Good Old Days, Elfed was the Sergeant at Llangefni Police Station on Anglesey. Elfed was one of those coppers at Llangefni who was mates with Dafydd, Dafydd living about four miles away from Llangefni. A veteran of Welsh language protests told me that she and her mates were assaulted by Elfed when they were campaigning.

After Dafydd’s charidee CAIS began providing ‘substance abuse services’ for north Wales, the heroin problem in the region exploded. Particularly in Llangefni. No-one could work out why, Llangefni is a just a small rural market town!

 

One of the senior managers at Ysbyty Gwynedd who colluded to undermine Mary and Merfyn was Trystan Pritchard. Trystan told someone known to me that he really liked Elfed because Elfed had done so much for the Welsh language. Trystan is a Bangor graduate who, before joining the NHS as a corrupt manager, was a journo. I watched Trystan having a very chummy meetings with a journo days before yet another bad news story about Merfyn hit the local papers. Trystan is a Freemason who is relatively young for the sort of boring corrupt old fart who dresses up in silly gear.

 

After war was waged with tasty morsels baked by friends and relations of Dafydd, the forces of hell were unleashed upon Mary and Merfyn. Patients were told by Top Doctors to write to their MPs to ‘complain about them’; the appointments system was sabotaged which meant that cancer patients only received urgent appointments through the post AFTER the date of their appointment had passed; the pathology lab test results were screwed up, consistently placing patients in danger and resulting in numerous complaints; rumours were spread around Bangor that Mary and Merfyn had mismanaged the Board’s finances so badly that they were responsible for the Board’s debt (no, the previous Financial Director of the NW Wales NHS Trust stuffed Elfed and Martin over before the Trust was dissolved and the funds disappeared with her); medical records disappeared when Mary tried to investigate serious complaints and staff lied to protect abusive colleagues; and lies were told by the Top Docs, Angels and middle managers about every aspect of patient care and safety, so Mary and Merfyn couldn’t take preventative measures because the info needed was actively witheld from them.

When Mary and Merfyn organised a patients’ consultation day with regard to the mental health services, Alun Davies the former manager of the Hergest Unit turned up along with a bunch of henchmen and tried to influence the outcome. The North Wales Community Health Council, ‘the patients voice’, was colonised by Top Doctors and Christine Evans, a retired surgeon, took over as Chair while admitting on her blog that she had taken the position to keep her former surgeon colleagues at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd out of trouble after the Royal College of Surgeons had written a damning report about their misconduct. See previous posts.

The BMA joined in the fun. They mobilised the wider BMA in Wales and also busied themselves locally. A local BMA group specific to North East Wales was formed with a grandiose name; it was actually Philip Banfield and his mates. Philip Banfield is an obstetrician at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd who knows all about Dafydd’s gang, Banfield has been in north Wales for years.

On another occasion the BMA held a meeting in one of the north Wales hospitals with regard to an election which contravened all proper procedures in the run-up to an election. Mary and Merfyn told the BMA that they could not hold such a meeting on NHS premises at a time of ‘purdah’. The BMA got arsey and decamped to an hotel down the road and held their procedure-breaching meeting there.

Unlike Elfed and Martin at the NW Wales NHS Trust, Mary did investigate patients’ complaints. She was up against it because many of the staff of the complaints dept had been inherited from the NW Wales NHS Trust and they continued to insult patients and ignore Mary’s instructions to investigate complaints. The NHS unions continued to protect abusive staff.

On Mary and Merfyn’s watch, Alan Roberts, a senior Angel at Ysbyty Gwynedd, was prosecuted and convicted when he threw a lady in her 80s across the ward and injured her. Roberts mounted a campaign in his defence which was backed by other Angels as well as union reps and student nurses were bullied into supporting him. He took his case to appeal, backed by his union (which I think was the RCN) and won. Roberts didn’t win because he didn’t assault the old lady, he won because it could not be proved that her injuries had resulted from him throwing her across the ward. The old lady wasn’t there to give evidence because she had died. Roberts had also impersonated a police officer which was never addressed.

Roberts ‘the gentle giant’ received much press coverage and after he won his appeal, he told the media that he would be returning to work as an Angel. Roberts’s wife was an intensive care Angel at Ysbyty Gwynedd and She Stood By Him, as did his son, who was a student Angel.

After one of his court hearings, Alan Roberts shook his fist at me as he left. Why did I attend court? Because when the NW Wales NHS Trust was run by Martin and Elfed, Alan Roberts refused to treat me, threatened me and accused me of ‘impersonating a GP’. My subsequent complaint about him was never investigated and Martin told me that it was me who been ‘threatening and aggressive’ to Roberts. So Martin and Elfed ensured that Roberts remained in his job as an Angel, in a senior role, where he later threw an elderly lady patient across the room and injured her. See post ‘Two Dangerous Very Dishonest Nurses’.

 

After public protests and much ranting in the press over Mary and Merfyn’s alleged plans for the NHS in north Wales – no plans had been finalised, but the paedophiles’ friends spread panic across the region by telling bare-faced lies – Mary and Merfyn held a public meeting, at which they strove to be as honest and transparent as possible. They were met with a baying mob who threatened them with physical violence, in front of the journos, TV cameras and politicians who also attended the meeting. Not one person called for calm and the threats of violence towards Mary and Merfyn were not reported in any media outlet. What was reported was that the whole of north Wales were livid over that dreadful Mary and Merfyn who Weren’t Listening To The People.

I don’t know who the baying mob were, but I don’t think that they constituted The People. I had arrived for the public meeting early and I saw that baying mob disembark from a series of coaches, only to be greeted by a man with an NHS lanyard around his neck yelling cheerfully that ‘this is the day that Mary Burrows gets her P45’ and that today will be the day that they get the bitch out.

After threatening Mary and Merfyn, the baying mob walked out waving their fists and the meeting was closed shortly after. As people filed out of the door, the man who had greeted the coaches went absolutely apeshit. He started screaming at Mary that there would be blood and throwing chairs around the room. He was tended to by someone else who had an NHS lanyard around her neck who dispensed kind words in his moment of trauma. If that man had been an Empowered Service User he would have been arrested, charged and probably remanded in custody.

 

So who was the problem? A bunch of lying thugs who had facilitated a paedophile gang for years? Of course not, it was Mary and Merfyn as any fule kno. They listed to patients, they investigated complaints, they held public consultations, OF COURSE THEY HAD TO GO!!!

 

In June 2013, Merfyn and Mary hit the headlines of the London-based media as well as the north Wales media when they resigned after the publication of a damning report about patient care and safety at the Betsi. The report was compiled in the wake of a C difficile outbreak in which patients had died. Merfyn gave interviews and some of them are still available on BBC News Wales archive clips. He reflected on the report which had stated that there had been a breakdown between ‘ward and Board’ at the Betsi and that he and Mary had not been aware of what had been happening at ward level. Merfyn stated that he had to accept that was indeed true, they had not been aware of a number of matters of which they should have been aware. He told the BBC that he had not been able to effect change and he had therefore offered his resignation to the Health Minister Mark Drakeford and Drakeford had accepted it.

Merfyn did not tell the media that there had been a conspiracy to keep crucial information from the Board. He did not tell them that Mary and he had received hate mail and death threats. He did not tell them that I and other people who had complained about the NW Wales NHS Trust had been threatened, assaulted, repeatedly wrongly arrested and unlawfully refused all NHS treatment. Merfyn did not tell them that I had given Drakeford’s predecessor Edwina Hart enough evidence to have Elfed, Martin and a number of Top Docs and Angels arrested and that Edwina had simply refused to act. Neither did Merfyn tell the BBC that when he had been VC of Bangor University, a post-doc was asked to smear him in a documentary about the mental health services and two PhD students who were friends with that post-doc had been followed around University premises by off duty police officers and intimidated.

Perhaps Merfyn should have just said ‘I’m dealing with the associates of a fucking paedophile gang here who have deliberately let patients die in order to force my resignation’, but the BBC probably wouldn’t have broadcast that because Jimmy Savile had been a visitor to Bryn Estyn and one boy alleged that he had been gang-raped while Savile looked on.

 

 

The report that condemned Merfyn and Mary was compiled by the WAO (Welsh Audit Office) and HIW (Health Inspectorate Wales).

At the time of the report, the Auditor General for Wales was Huw Vaughan Thomas. Huw Vaughan Thomas was Chief Executive of Gwynedd County Council, 1991-96. Huw was Chief Exec of Gwynedd CC while the paedophile gang were active in Gwynedd’s children’s homes and while employees of Gwynedd Social Services lied about me and other patients to the police and on oath in attempts to secure convictions against us. Huw Vaughan Thomas was Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council when Patient F was denied access to his own baby on the basis of unproven allegations that he was a ‘risk’ to the baby. The baby was brought up in the care of a family with two adult male sex offenders in the household. F and other people raised concerns about one of these offenders and Gwynedd Social Services admitted that he had confessed to indecently assaulting two 10 year old boys. No action was taken against him, not even when he and his friend subsequently offered their services as babysitters and yet more complaints were made about them. F was never given access to his own child and the family whom Gwynedd placed F’s baby with later left the area. F never saw his child again and did not know where he was. See previous posts.

Huw Vaughan Thomas was appointed as Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council in the middle of the North Wales Police’s investigation into the possibility of a VIP paedophile ring in north Wales/Chester. The investigation was closed in 1992 and the police stated that no evidence of any ring had been found.

The child protection officer who denied F access to his child and who refused to even hold a case conference when F raised concerns that his baby could be at risk from the sex offenders in the household where his baby was being raised was Jo Bott. Jo Bott was a former police officer who was subsequently employed by Gwynedd Social Services.

Jo Bott alleged that F’s new wife had been ‘harassing’ the mother of F’s baby and ordered F’s wife to ‘leave her alone’. F’s wife had had no contact with the mother of F’s child since the baby was about two weeks old. The contact then was a visit to deliver clothes and a present for the baby. Because as Jo Bott knew damn well, F’s new wife had been friends with F and his stepchildren for a number of years and had paid for meals and lent the family money when they needed it. Hadn’t she Bott??? In fact the reason that she got to know F was that he found out about the attempts to imprison her on the part of Gwynedd Social Services and the Top Doctors and having been wrongfully imprisoned himself by the same people, F offered advice. F also offered other Empowered Service Users who were being abused and neglected by Jo Bott’s colleagues advice, which was why so many people used to congregate at his house in Bethesda…

Then there was the visit that F received from armed men when he put his house up for sale. No of course he didn’t tell Bott et al, but all the Empowered Service Users knew about it.

 

After Bott told F’s new wife to leave the mother of F’s baby alone, F’s new wife received nearly £1000 worth of bills from F’s former partner which had been run up in F’s name, along with a demand that she pay them. Then a few weeks later came a demand for some baby equipment. Oh then after that F and his new wife were offered baby photos of the baby that F was not allowed to visit – accompanied by a demand for more money of course…

Leave her alone??? F and his new wife wished that the malicious cow had moved to Jupiter but it really was quite difficult to escape her as the baby was wheeled past their house at regular intervals.

Then there was Martin, a young man who had witnessed everything re F’s baby, who was found dead in the road near Bethesda, at about the time that Huw Vaughan Thomas took up his job as Auditor General for Wales. Martin had witnessed rather more as well, because he was the father of the baby of F’s former partner’s daughter’s baby. Martin applied for custody when he discovered that the mother of his baby was battering the living daylights out of the baby. Gwynedd Social Services told Martin that they would be awarding custody to his former partner if she turned up to the hearing. Fortunately for Martin and his daughter, Mandy couldn’t even be arsed to go to the hearing so Martin was able to bring up his little girl. Until he was found dead that was.

So Huw Vaughan Thomas, who presided over this nightmare, had the final say on Merfyn’s performance as Chair of the Betsi Board!!!

For the full background on Huw Vaughan Thomas and his long list of public appointments – Huw has also been Chief Executive of Denbighshire County Council and a member of the Parole Board, among many other things – see post ‘I Know Nuzzing…’.

Huw: presided over a murderous paedophile gang:

Poor leadership a 'barrier' to safety, says watchdog - BBC ...

 

Why was there was vacancy as the Auditor General for Wales for Huw to step into? The vacancy arose when Jeremy Colman, the former Auditor General for Wales, resigned and was in 2010 jailed for the possession of child porn (see post ‘The Reality Is, There Is No Problem’).

 

Huw Vaughan Thomas wasn’t the only person who was responsible for those harsh words about Merfyn, I must be fair here. After all, HIW compiled the report in partnership with Huw Vaughan Thomas. The Chief Executive of HIW was Dr Peter Higson. Peter Higson had previously been a clinical psychologist at the North Wales Hospital; the manager of the North Wales Hospital Denbigh and the manager of the mental health services across the whole of north Wales. Peter Higson was a colleague of Dafydd’s and a good friend of Fergus Lowe.

Peter Higson had a little break away from his multiple roles in the NHS as a facilitator of Dafydd’s gang. In the early years of the millennium, Higson was the interim Chief Executive of ELWa, a Welsh quango responsible for education and training. The Chair of ELWa was Enid Rowlands. Who is married to Huw Vaughan Thomas. Enid is a psychology graduate who comes from north Wales! Just like Peter! There was a bit of a row in 2003 when Enid was Chair of ELWa because £2 million found its way into the pockets of a company called Avanti and no-one could explain where the money had gone after that. Enid refused to resign, even when it was revealed that accounting procedures had not been followed and that conflicts of interest had not been declared when Peter was appointed as interim Chief Exec of ELWa, even though Peter was a Director of the North Wales Health Authority and Enid Chaired that Authority!

Enid has clocked up nearly as many public appointments as her husband has. Among other things, Enid was/is Chair of the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority; was a member of the GMC for eight years; was UK Chair of Victim Support; was a member of the North Wales Police Authority; was/is a member of the S4C Authority; was/is a member of BUPA Council. See previous posts, including ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’.

  • Gwasanaethau cyfreithiol i bawb, nid i’r lleiafrif – Golwg360

 

ELWa eventually disappeared in disgrace although sadly Enid didn’t and Peter Higson was appointed as the Chief Executive of the newly created HIW. In that role, Peter Higson refused to investigate all of my very serious complaints about the North West Wales NHS Trust. But then Peter had, years previously, refused to investigate all of my complaints about Dafydd et al and Gwynedd Social Services.

 

So, after Merfyn was set up and blown out as Chair of the Betsi, a new Chair was appointed. It was Dr Peter Higson. After Higson took up the Chair of the Betsi Board, HIW was declared to be in such a sorry state that it was ‘not fit for purpose’. Peter Higson was the only Chief Executive that HIW had ever had and he had been there from its creation.

Do any readers know if the creation of HIW might have been the idea of a man called Peter Higson or one of his friends or relatives?

When Peter Higson was appointed Chair of the Betsi Board, Margaret Hanson was appointed as his Vice-Chair. Margaret had previously worked as a children’s and family social work team leader for Cheshire Social Services. Dafydd’s gang operated in Cheshire as well as in north Wales, through the social services. Margaret was also a Councillor in Cheshire. Margaret Hanson is married to David Hanson, the Labour MP for Delyn in north east Wales. David was also a Councillor in Cheshire; Davies was appointed as Miranda’s PPS in 2001, when all those people were yelling in the aftermath of the publication of the Waterhouse Report that Waterhouse had been a huge cover-up. See previous posts for further info about the Hansons.

When Peter and Margaret took over at the Betsi, Margaret commented to the media that she was appalled at the state of the Betsi and she really didn’t know what those previously at the helm had been thinking of.

It is now more than five years since Merfyn and Mary resigned from the Betsi. Mary sadly died of cancer a few years ago, but not before the ‘Daily Mail’ published an article about her, denouncing ‘her shameful legacy’. There has been scandal after scandal after scandal at the Betsi since Mary and Merfyn resigned. There have been allegations of severe staff bullying and an Angel who blew the whistle on the Tawel Fan Scandal, the biggest EMI patient abuse scandal in the history of the UK, received death threats and was sacked by the Board. Not one of the Angels who were filmed undercover swearing at patients who were crawling around naked on floors covered in faeces and urine was disciplined. The Angels gave interviews to the ‘Daily Post’ stating that there was nothing wrong with the care in Tawel Fan ward and that the relatives who complained were ‘troublemakers’. Some of the same Angels were subsequently caught abusing patients in the ward to which they had been transferred after Tawel Fan closed down. None of them have been disciplined.

The obstetric service at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd was found to be so dangerous that a hit squad was sent in from the Welsh Gov’t to ‘turn it around’. There were accusations that the behaviour of one obstetrician was so crazed and intimidating that it had caused meltdown in the service. Phil Banfield is the senior obstetrician at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd. The Board was placed in special measures and the first goal of the hit squad was to ‘achieve normality’ in the maternity service. The Board remains in special measures all these years later because normality has still not been achieved.

The abnormality of the obstetric service at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd had obviously been missed by Huw Vaughan Thomas’s wife Enid, who was Chair of the North Wales Health Authority long before Mary and Merfyn got near the Betsi. But Peter Higson, being a Director of the North Wales Health Authority had missed the abnormality along with Enid. But then Peter’s mate Prof Bob Woods from the School of Psychology at Bangor University has been north Wales’s expert in dementia care for decades now, so he must have been something to do with the abnormality at Tawel Fan. Another of Peter’s many roles was that of a lecturer on the clinical psychology course at Bangor University. Bob Woods was Director of that course and before the North Wales Hospital was closed down, clin psy students did their ‘training’ placements under the lecherous eye – and hands – of Dafydd.

Peter Higson is also a member of the Council at Bangor University. After Peter was appointed to the Council, Bangor University awarded Peter’s sister, Dr Ruth Hussey, an honorary degree. Ruth was Chief Medical Officer for Wales, 2012-16. Ruth was CMO for Wales when the Betsi was failing to achieve normality, in spite of the best efforts of the hit squad from the Welsh Gov’t. See post ‘Topsy and Tim’ for further details of Peter And Ruth’s biographies.

 

Well after Merfyn and Mary resigned, the Betsi Board effectively went bankrupt and the Welsh Gov’t bailed it out. Several times. But still the Board couldn’t manage. The Board has a recruitment crisis in every aspect of its work, no-one wants to work for the NHS in north Wales in any capacity. Litigation against the Board is soaring and the Public Services Ombudsman for Wales has spoken out repeatedly about the worrying number of complaints that he is dealing with about the Betsi. The mortality and suicide rates for north Wales are some of the worst in Europe and have got worse since Mary and Merfyn departed.

Since Mary and Merfyn resigned, the Betsi’s performance, on every measure, has plummeted and the Board has sunk so deeply into the red that it doesn’t make sense for the Welsh Gov’t to talk about giving the Betsi a bail out to enable it to balance the books. The Board is bankrupt, has been for quite some time and it is sinking deeper and deeper and deeper.

 

The Tory AM Mark Isherwood some months ago made a speech in the Senedd in despair at the state of the Betsi and the patient harm and deaths, ending it with ‘this cannot be allowed to continue’. Vaughan Gething, the Welsh Gov’ts Minister for Health told Mark to stop talking down the NHS.

As for those politicians who sat in silence in that public meeting some six years ago while an organised mob hurled threats and abuse at Merfyn and Mary, they are still in office. One was Darren Millar, the Tory AM for Clwyd West. To be fair to Darren, he is the only politician who in recent years has called for prosecutions with regard to the abuse of patients at the Betsi.

Another of the politicians was Plaid’s Llyr Huws Gruffydd. I had met Llyr before I saw him sit in silence at that meeting. I had previously e mailed him and given him full details of the extended neglect and abuse of a friend of mine at the hands of the mental health services in north Wales. Llyr wrote me a very nice e mail back saying that this sounded shocking. When the mental health services heard that I was writing to politicians, they admitted my, by then, very very ill, suicidal friend to a psych ward in Wrexham Maelor Hospital. Llyr turned up and the Angel in charge told him that there were no problems at all re my friend. Llyr told me that my friend was in safe hands. My friend was discharged the next day and, once more, unlawfully refused NHS care. He became destitute and nearly died some months later. I never heard from Llyr again, although I did e mail him and tell him what was happening to my friend.

The third politician who sat in silence at the public meeting was the Labour AM for the Vale of Clwyd, Ann Jones. Ann Jones regularly comments on her support for the NHS and its wonderful staff. She has never said a word about the escalating horror prevailing at the Betsi since Mary and Merfyn’s departure. But then Ann Jones never said a word about the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal despite being on the scene throughout it all. Jones was born and educated in Rhyl, was a Rhyl Town Councillor and a Denbighshire County Councillor. Ann Jones is Deputy Presiding Officer of the Welsh Assembly. I am still on the mailing list for many of the things which I was involved when I was still in Wales and a few days ago I was invited to a Wimmins Event with Ann as a guest speaker. I’ll give that one a miss, I don’t want to be told that Ann is my role model. Even if I did feel in need of a role model, I would not choose Ann.

 

A third person resigned along with Merfyn and Mary, that was Dr Lyndon Miles, the Vice-Chair of the Betsi Board. I always found Lyndon very pleasant and approachable and after the threats and abuse at the public meeting, I bumped into him in a cafe and he told me that the Board were getting a very bad time but they were determined to see this through. Two weeks later Lyndon resigned and I think that he resigned before Mary and Merfyn.

Lyndon wasn’t crazed and threatening like the other Top Doctors, but he definitely knew what they were doing and had known for years. Lyndon is a GP and arrived in Bangor in about 1984, when the gang called for reinforcements. The reinforcements were all like Lyndon, they weren’t obviously mad a la Dafydd et al but they colluded with Dafydd and the gang. Lyndon was a GP in the Student Health Centre in UCNW, he worked with Dr D.G.E. Wood, Liz Stables and Gwynne the lobotomist who were facilitating the trafficking ring. Lyndon was the GP of my housemate Anne Vernon when she was killed by the gang. Lyndon was also the GP of the young female psych patient who was used for sex by the junior gynaecologists of Ysbyty Gwynedd, made pregnant twice by them and then coerced into abortions which they had arranged. She was subsequently refused all NHS treatment and told that if she wanted to access care she’d have to move to England. See post ‘Another Case Of Not Knowing?’

Lyndon worked as a GP in north Wales throughout the worst of Dafydd’s gang; he was there during the rapes of the kids in care, the unlawful denial of access to NHS abortions anywhere in north Wales thus forcing women into the hands of the dangerous ‘private’ abortionist in Chester, the framing of victims of the gang, the banging them up in high security hospitals, the constant suspicious deaths and suicides, the forging of records and throughout the Waterhouse Inquiry, Lyndon knew about it all and he has never said a word. He also knew what happened to me. Lyndon also spent years as Vice-Chair of the Gwynedd Local Health Board. Lyndon knows all about the murdering criminal bastards.

Lyndon is now Chair of St David’s Hospice, an institution run entirely by Dafydd’s gang. Alun Davies became Chief Exec of St David’s Hospice when the deaths and suicides of patients and staff at the Hergest Unit meant that even Davies was too embarrassed to remain as the Director of the mental health services for the NW Wales NHS Trust any longer. When Davies retired from St David’s Hospice just a few years ago, Trystan Pritchard was appointed Chief Executive. See post ‘The CEOs of St David’s Hospice’.

 

It is clear that Dafydd’s gang and their associates did indeed precipitate a situation in which patients died at the Betsi in order to cover Merfyn with crap and force him to resign as Chair.

Perhaps someone needs to hold the following people to account:

The Director of the Pathology labs who knew that infection was raging throughout the hospitals managed by the Board but did not control the situation or keep Merfyn and Mary informed. That person is Dr Avril Wayte. Avril is a member of the Board of Dafydd’s charidee CAIS.

Avril is married to Dr Donald Wayte, a retired pathologist. For years, Donald Wayte was the senior pathologist for north Wales. Highlights of Don’s career included accusing parents, in public, who’s children had died of SIDS of having murdered them on the basis of absolutely no evidence at all and taking the 15 yr old son of a friend of his into the hospital to work with him without gaining permission or ethical clearance from anyone. The teenager had a lovely time, he saw the dead bodies, the lot, thanks to dear old Don.

Don played a key role in many a Nasty Case and an ‘Orrible Murder, what with ruling the roost over the whole of north Wales for many of the years that Dafydd’s gang ran riot, years in which north Wales became famous for its corruption in medico-legal circles, the fitting up of innocent people and the ludicrous explanations for the suspicious deaths of so many victims of and witnesses to the crimes of Dafydd’s gang. People were found hanging, found dead from overdoses, they were hit by cars, they fell out of windows, down embankments, out of trains going at speed, they were killed in fires, there was no end to the untimely and unfortunate deaths of so many in north Wales who had encountered Dafydd et al. The coroner or judge presiding over the trial often relied on the evidence of Dafydd’s mate Don.

Don was the pathologist who gave evidence at the July 1996 trial of Howard Hughes. Hughes was found guilty of the 1995 rape and murder of a little girl called Sophie Hook, who disappeared from a tent in a garden in Llandudno and who’s body was later recovered from the sea. Howard was a wrong ‘un, everyone knew that, especially the police. Howard had a chromosome abnormality which caused him to grow very tall, he is getting on for 7 foot high. Howard also has learning disabilities and cannot read and write, so he could not read the statement that he made to the police. Howard has always denied knowing anything at all about Sophie’s disappearance. He came under suspicion because he was seen on a footpath near the garden from where Sophie disappeared. But nowhere near the time that Sophie disappeared. Furthermore, the garden where Sophie was camping is in a suburban part of Llandudno, so a lot of people were on that path.

The police seemed to know that they were looking for a big man with learning difficulties because they told the world that they were looking for a big brute. They found one shortly after saying that and arrested Howard. They had to release him again because there was absolutely no evidence linking him with the crime. While Howard was out, the police raided his house and most conveniently found child porn. So he was re-arrested. Howard was remanded in custody and when he was in prison on remand, another prisoner, a convicted child sex offender maintained that Howard had confessed to Sophie’s rape and murder. The account that this prisoner gave of Howard’s confession sounded rather like the fantasy of a child sex offender. That statement was the only evidence linking Howard to the Sophie’s disappearance. Everything else was pure speculation, including the allegation of ‘he was seen carrying her dead body’. No he wasn’t. Someone said that they thought that they saw someone who might have been Howard carrying a sack with something in it late one night. But there was no evidence that the person was Howard, if indeed such a person was seen and who knows what was in the sack, if there was a sack, which was far from certain. There was absolutely no evidence against Howard except for the confession of a convicted sex offender who also admitted that sometimes he did make things up but he hadn’t on this occasion.

Dafydd’s mate Don gave an account of the terrible injuries that had been inflicted on Sophie’s body, but true to form, Don didn’t just confine himself to that. Don explained exactly what Howard had done to Sophie. How Don knew this I don’t know, because much of his evidence could not have been extrapolated from the injuries postmortem on a body recovered from the sea, but Don Knew. See previous posts for further details.

When Howard Hughes was sentenced, the world heard the details of his previous, which was terrible, I would be wary of someone with a criminal record like Howard’s. Indeed, I nearly was someone with a criminal record like Howard’s. If every attempt that Dafydd and the gang had made to fit me up had been successful, I would have a criminal record like Howard Hughes. And it would all be a load of cobblers.

Howard was arrested, convicted and imprisoned at the time that Dafydd’s gang repeatedly tried to fit me up for serious offences by planting evidence, committing perjury and I am told, paying people to lie about me. The gang became very busy after 1994, because Brown had sent them yet more evidence of Dafydd trying to bribe me into dropping my complaint about him and I and another patient also had a meeting with two members of the Mental Health Act Commission and told then that serious complaints about Dafydd were not being investigated, including that of him sexually exploiting patients. Our complaints were still not investigated, but we were arrested.

The reason why I am so cautious before screaming for Howard’s knackers on a platter, is that from quite a young age, everyone responsible for Howard’s diagnoses, care and ‘assessments’ were associates of Dafydd and the gang. Howard had also been in Bryn Estyn, where he maintained that he was abused. Howard’s claim for compensation re Bryn Estyn was rejected on the grounds that he had serious criminal convictions. But then most of the boys from Bryn Estyn did, because if they weren’t brutalised and driven mad by being beaten and gang raped, they were fitted up by Dafydd’s gang to discredit them. Howard had also spent time in Garth Angharad, the ‘hospital for mentally abnormal criminals’ near Dolgellau. Except that it wasn’t a hospital at all, it was an isolated building hidden away which was owned by a solicitor who was later struck off for stealing his clients’ money. Before that occurred, the struck off solicitor had owned and managed children’s homes and schools, where the kids had been abused. Even Ronnie Waterhouse didn’t have a good word to say about the owner of Garth Angharad, Paul Hett. See previous posts.

I didn’t know of the existence of Garth Angharad until a few years ago when I received my own files. In the late 1980s, when I was sitting in a London medical school as a postgrad student, a case conference had been held about me in Garth Angharad, without my knowledge, by a man of whom I had never heard, who took evidence about me from people of whom I had never heard. The conclusion was that I was extremely dangerous, capable of murder and should be banged up in a high security hospital as soon as poss. See post ‘The Night Of The (Dr Chris) Hunter’. The reason why the case conference about me was held in Garth Angharad was that the man who held it, Dr Chris Hunter, of whom I had never heard, was visiting Garth Angharad to see one of his patients there. Hunter was a mate of Dafydd’s gang which was why Tony Francis and Dafydd had asked him to hold a case conference about me. Chris Hunter also had patients in Ashworth Hospital – where patients were raped and beaten by Angels, one patient being battered to death – in Whitchurch Hospital and in the Caswell Clinic in Bridgend. All of these places were receptacles for the victims of Dafydd’s gang who complained about him. They were hospitals in name only.

 

The Top Doctor who used to sit on the Betsi Board as the Top Docs’ representative at the time of Merfyn’s resignation has more than a few questions to answer. I can’t remember his name, but he was rude, awkward as fuck and highly defensive. He refused to co-operate with anything that Merfyn and Mary suggested re improvements in patient care and he took an entrenched position on absolutely everything.

 

The Health Minister who so willingly accepted Merfyn’s resignation and smugly announced that he would be appointing a replacement, which was Peter Higson was of course this blog’s old friend Mark Drakeford. Drakeford worked as a social worker for Dyfed Social Services when a paedophile gang operated in Dyfed Social Services which had links to Dafydd’s gang. Drakeford served as Rhodri Morgan’s SPAD for years while the slaughter continued apace in north Wales and when serious complaints went uninvestigated. When Drakeford was Health Minister, bombs went off under him constantly, NHS deaths, scandals, corrupt practices, the lot. He refused to accept responsibility for any of it. During that time, I wrote to Drakeford and gave him full details of a medical research fraud that I had witnessed. I did not receive a reply and some three weeks later, Drakeford appeared with members of the team who perpetrated the fraud at a media PR event, promoting the fraud.

Just a few weeks ago, Mark Drakeford’s 31 year old son was sentenced to eight years in prison for the prolonged violent rape of a young woman. Drakeford junior was also charged with grooming a child.

 

Martin Jones, the Director of the Workforce at the Betsi who hated Merfyn and Mary, was one of the leaders of the lynch mob and after all those scandals at the Betsi was appointed Director of Investigations for NHS Wales. Martin is now the ultimate man for investigating complaints in Wales’s NHS…

 

The PM when Merfyn was forced out by a bunch of psychopaths who conspired to allow patients die to make him look bad was Lord Snooty the Third. Health is a devolved responsibility, so the Betsi was nothing to do with Lord Snooty the Third, but as previous posts (eg. Lord Snooty The Third) explained, Lord Snooty had a great deal to do with what was going on in north Wales. As indeed did Cherie, Miranda, Gordon Brown and Ed Miliband (see post ‘Lest We Forget’).

 

The Torygraph, the newspaper most supportive of Lord Snooty the Third, some 10 years ago, ran a flattering report about an Angel from Ysbyty Gwynedd, Stephen Gallagher, who was in the TA and while on duty in Afghanistan, had ‘saved a boy’s life’. The story was substantially untrue, breached confidence and put the lives of the boy and his family at risk. I had made a complaint about Gallagher some months previously, after he had refused to treat me and threatened me. Martin Jones destroyed the CCTV that showed Gallagher doing this. I was told that the senior managers of the NW Wales NHS Trust had given the story about Major Gallagher the War Hero to the Torygraph. I was also told that before he had threatened me, there was already a note on Gallagher’s HR file saying that his competence and integrity could not be relied upon, after a Top Doctor made a complaint about him. Some time after Gallagher appeared in the Torygraph, he threatened me again and two witnesses made a statement detailing what they had seen. One of the witnesses worked at Ysbyty Gwynedd and then Gallagher threatened her. She was subsequently accused of conspiring with me to ‘get’ the Trust Board. There was no investigation into any of the complaints that arose from any of this. See post ‘Two Dangerous, Very Dishonest Nurses’.

 

For crying out loud, get it into your heads everyone, Dafydd’s gang don’t have and never did have any limits. They fitted complainants up and had them imprisoned for years or banged up in high security hospitals and they murdered witnesses. They have ruled north Wales for decades and what a legacy there is. I thought that they were pretty bloody stupid coming after a young woman with a postgrad degree in medical sciences, but they stop at nothing, nothing at all. They made statements claiming that I had attempted to stab someone. Then admitted that no, I had done no such thing. They made statements saying that I had tried to throttle someone. Then admitted that no, I had done no such thing. They made statements saying that I was known to carry and use weapons. They were not able to show evidence of this. Or of their allegation that I had held an Angel hostage. Or that I have been in prison for attacking someone with a knife. Or that I had sexually assaulted a psychiatrist. Yet no-one would take action against this lot, no-one.

Then in 2013 they let a load of patients die because they wanted to force out a man who had been a VC and Governor of the BBC and who’s wife had died at their hands. I recommend that Merfyn hires a lawyer and obtains copies of his medical records. They probably explain that it was really him who raped that young woman, not Mark Drakeford’s son at all, but what with his wicked ways, Merfyn blamed it all on Drakeford junior.

Just for the record: Merfyn was my ultimate boss for a number of years when I worked at Bangor University. I never ever witnessed him raise his voice to anyone, swear at anyone, lose his temper or even be rude to someone else. I saw him look really fucking exasperated as the paedophiles’ friends insulted him, shouted at him in public and refused to do the jobs for which they were so generously paid while treating staff and students appallingly. He should have broken his code of conduct and fucking well flattened the lot of them.

Now, all the names of those worthless bastards who assisted in the deaths of those patients to force Merfyn to resign please, to me at this blog or via my e mail address and I’ll name every one of them…

 

Here he is in his well-dressed man disguise, you can tell he’s a wrong ‘un:

  • BBC News - Sport and public service in Wales birthday honours
  • Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board chairman Professor ...

 

 

Someone else who’s attempted a well-dressed man disguise:

‘There is no evidence that Dr Jones ever behaved unprofessionally or in any way that was not in the best interests of his patients.’

Don’t Mess With Daddy

Readers will know from my post ‘Dr Victoria Winckler Threatens To Sue Dr Sally Baker’ that Victoria Winkler, the Director of the Bevan Foundation, a ‘social justice organisation’, has recently sent me a highly irregular letter from her solicitors, Harding Evans, which alleges that I have made a number of allegations about a number of people in this blog which I have not in fact made. Someone had also unlawfully accessed a database which contained the personal information of two friends of mine in order to find a contact address for me which they then gave to Harding Evans.

A number of readers left comments after that post with information and advice and a few more people have e mailed me privately with further information and advice. People also supplied a bit of background on the Bevan Foundation, which was established in 2001 by a number of Labour politicians, in the immediate aftermath of the Waterhouse Report. Since then, there has been much internal scrapping at the Bevan Foundation with little things hitting each other and resignations. Victoria however has been CEO since 2002. The Bevan Foundation is £66k in debt.

Many people have passed through the Bevan Foundation on their travels – including the Usual Suspects – far too many to cover in detail on this blog, but I did think that it would be worth blogging further about a few of the more high profile people.

 

A reader helpfully sent me a link to information provided by the Bevan Foundation about themselves. It states that ‘The Bevan Foundation develops ideas that change Wales and improve people’s lives‘ and that ‘the inaugural Bevan Prize for Health and Well-being‘ was awarded ‘in Westminster to celebrate one individual and organisation who have made an outstanding contribution to health and well-being in their field in the past year (1st January 2012-31st December 2012). The presentation event, held in the Attlee Room at Portcullis House, was hosted by Dr Hywel Francis MP, attracted around 90 guests from across England and Wales, and included nominees, nominators, MPs, peers and other interested parties. Prizes were awarded by Baroness Ilora Finlay of Llandaff, Christina McAnea, Head of Health at UNISON and Jaselle Williams, Trustee of the Bevan Foundation and Secretary of the Aneurin Bevan Society, representing the judges…Our Director is Dr Victoria Winckler, who has more than 30 years experience in public policy in the public, private and third sectors. She is supported by a small staff team.’

Dr Hywel Francis was one of the founders of the Bevan Foundation who later resigned among the hissy fitting. Hywel Francis was the Labour MP for  Aberavon, 2001-15. He was preceded in the seat by Lord John Morris, corrupt barrister; Secretary of State for Wales, 1974-79, under Harold Wilson and then Jim Callaghan; and Attorney General for England and Wales, as well as for N Ireland, 1997-99, under Miranda. John Morris was one of those who provided much protection for Dafydd and his gang as well as old favourites like George Thomas (see previous posts).

Hywel Francis was succeeded as MP for Aberavon by the Windbag’s son, who is so famously committed to Wales that he grew up in London, went to Queen’s College, Cambridge University and then to the College of Europe in Bruges; lived in Brussels, Russia, Sierra Leone, Geneva and then London again. Windbag junior describes himself as coming from a ‘Labour and Trade Union family’. Well what with having two parents in the European Parliament and the House of Lords and being married to the Prime Minister of Denmark, how else would he describe himself?

Hywel Francis studied at what is now Swansea University, an institution pretty much run by Rhodri Morgan’s friends and relations. Highlights of Hywel’s political career included a stint as SPAD for Paul Murphy, Secretary of State for Wales, who in that capacity took receipt of the Waterhouse Report in 2000. Murphy stated that he was delighted that the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal had now been extensively and transparently investigated, that there was no VIP paedophile ring in north Wales concealed by those in High Places and would everybody now please shut up about it all, even though nothing very much happened to anyone anyway.

Paul Murphy is someone who knows a great deal about the paedophile ring which never existed, having succeeded Leo Abse as Labour MP for Torfaen. Leo Abse was a crooked and very unpleasant lawyer who concealed the sex offences of George Thomas and Dafydd’s gang in north Wales (see previous posts); Paul Murphy was a Councillor in Torfaen when old Abse was threatening and paying off complainants. Paul Murphy also served as Secretary of State for N Ireland, 2002-05, so he knows all about the Kincora Boys’ Home and the elite paedophile ring with links to the rings in north Wales and other places on mainland Britain which operated at Kincora. Murphy was Secretary of State for Wales, 1999-02 and 2008-09 and Secretary of State for N Ireland, 2002-05. Just to reassure readers that trusted hands are on the tiller, Murphy was Chairperson of the Intelligence and Security Committee, 2005-08. I can only hope that the spies didn’t actually tell him what they were getting up to, the information might well have been misused. Particularly as Murphy’s tenure straddled both Miranda’s and Gordon’s time as PM.

Paul Murphy is a devout Roman Catholic who has never married or been blessed with children.

See previous posts for more information on Paul Murphy.

 

Hywel Francis’s dad was Dai Francis, who led the South Wales NUM throughout the years of industrial unrest in the 1970s. Like his dad, Hywel was a member of the Communist Party of Great Britain. So Hywel and Dai knew all those other members of the CP of GB who knew about George Thomas, Dafydd’s gang etc, including those English radicals/intellectuals who spent their summers in Llanfrothen/Croesor and had the best gen of all re Dafydd and Gwynne the lobotomist, including the gen on Bertrand Russell. See previous posts, including ‘The Village’.

Hywel Francis worked at University of Wales Swansea (now Swansea University) as a Professor in Adult Continuing Education prior to being elected to the Commons in 2001. At the University of Wales, he founded the South Wales Miners’ Library. Francis also was the chair of the Wales Congress in Support of Mining Communities. He is a Welsh speaker and has been a member of the Gorsedd of the Bards, along with so many mates of Dafydd’s, since 1986. Hywel Francis is Honorary Parliamentary Patron of the adult learners’ body, NIACE (National Institute of Adult Continuing Education). He is a Trustee of the Paul Robeson Trust and the President of the South Wales Miners’ Museum.

Hywel Francis co-authored ‘The Fed: A History of the South Wales Miners in the Twentieth Century’ (1980) with Dai Smith. Dai is the dad of Owen ‘Oily’ Smith, Labour MP for Pontypridd. Before Oily was elected to the Commons, he worked for the BBC as a journo, while his dad Dai had a senior role at the BBC. Then Oily worked as a SPAD for Paul Murphy and after that as a lobbyist/senior marketing manager for Pfizer. Dai Smith has held a number of academic posts, including Chairs at Cardiff and Swansea Universities and he was PVC at the University of Glamorgan.

 

Hywel Francis really maxes out on being all working class and Miners and Communists and Duw It’s Hard, but what Hywel really enjoys doing is writing articles for ‘The Guardian’ and ingratiating himself to the Top Doctors. Hywel has been Vice-President of Carers UK, but has been strangely silent on how carers have really been shafted and sold down the river by the Top Docs. In 2014 Hywel Francis became Chair of Byw Nawr, an organisation set up by the Dying Matters Coalition.

Dr Hywel Francis knows as well as I do how bloody unscrupulous the Top Docs are and the gross abuses which are taking place, but you won’t hear a word from him about it. Hywel has suggested that Wales could have a Carers’ Commissioner that could be based on the Children’s Commissioner. Hywel hasn’t mentioned that every Children’s Commissioner for Wales has been a senior social worker and at least two of them worked alongside paedophile/trafficking gangs earlier in their careers (see post ‘Yet More Inglorious Bastards’). The daughter of one of the Angels from the North Wales Hospital Denbigh who manned Dafydd’s Dungeon for years was a senior social worker in the Office of the Children’s Commissioner for Wales.

 

The Horny Handed Son Of The Soil, giving yet another media interview, perhaps just before he pens his column for ‘The Guardian’:

Here’s Baroness Ilora Finlay, one of those who awarded the prizes at the Bevan Foundation’s do in Parliament House:

Ilora Gillian Finlay, Baroness Finlay of Llandaff, is a Top Doctor who sits as an Independent crossbencher in the Lords. Born the only daughter of Professor Charles Beaumont Benoy Downman, Ilora married Andrew Yule Finlay in 1972, with whom she has two children.

The Baroness is a past President of the Royal Society of Medicine and Professor of Palliative Medicine at Cardiff University. Finlay is a consultant at the Velindre Cancer Centre in Cardiff.

The Baroness is a Vice President of Marie Curie, Patron of The Trussell Trust’s foodbank network in Wales and of the Motor Neurone Disease Association. She is also Patron of Student Volunteering Cardiff. Ilora Finlay was a Founding Fellow of the Learned Society of Wales and is a Member of its inaugural Council. The Learned Society of Wales is a real laugh, it is a group of rather pompous people who identify as being Cultured and Welsh who got together and made each other members of their Learned Society. My post ‘A Bit More Paleontology’ names many of the members of the Learned Society of Wales. Ilora Finlay is Patron of the charidee Students for Kids’ International Projects.

In March 2015, Finlay was awarded the Grassroot Diplomat Initiative for her vigorous championing of improving the care of dying patients.

Baroness Finlay is a Top Doctor and has been for her entire career. The fact that so many people still have such dreadful experiences when dying is entirely the fault of the Baroness and her colleagues. The conditions for a peaceful, pain-free death achievable by most people have been known for many years. There are a few people who get clobbered with conditions where pain relief and other matters do make a peaceful death tricky, but not many of them. The problem is that as with so many things Top Doctors, no-one bothers to do what they know is necessary and every account from a distraught bereaved relative is met with ‘How very dare you? We are the NHS and everyone knows that we are Selfless, Low Paid and Worked To Exhaustion.’ Thus nothing ever changes.

The Baroness picked up her peerage in 2001, the year after the Waterhouse Report. Well, she was/is a leading light at Cardiff University’s School of Medicine, in which virtually every Top Doctor was concealing the sex offending of George Thomas and the crimes of Dafydd and the gang.

 

So who is the President of the Bevan Foundation? It is the Windbag of course, someone else who knew all about George Thomas, Dafydd and the gang and much, much more. The Windbag who knew Dafydd’s mate Dr Tony Francis when they were at Cardiff University and who is married to Glenys, the school teacher from Holyhead, whose parents were active in the Labour Party, parents who concealed the crimes of Dafydd’s gang in a previous era and were friends with the likes of Lord Cledwyn, who was Bigger and Better at concealing the same crimes (see post ‘The Cradle Of Filth’).

One famous example of the Windbag’s oratory (ie. drunken ranting) was that speech he made just before the 1987 General Election, which included the following: ‘Why am I the first Kinnock in a thousand generations to be able to get to university? Why is Glenys the first woman in her family in a thousand generations to be able to get to university?’

Well Windbag, I was the first person in my family ‘in a thousand generations’ to go to university and unlike you I got a good degree, but when you were making that speech, your mate Tony Francis and his colleagues were in the midst of formulating that elaborate well co-ordinated plan with David Ewart of the Mental Health Act Commission, Risley Remand Centre and Clwyd Health Authority, to have me framed and imprisoned for a serious crime (see previous posts), because I was the first in my family for a thousand generations to have tripped over the branch of the Westminster Paedophile Ring which your mate Francis, along with Dafydd et al, was facilitating in north Wales…

So why is Stephen Kinnock the next Kinnock of that thousand generations who has not become Labour PM, no matter how hard he and his parents have tried?

Perhaps because we have all had quite enough of the famille Windbag, their hypocrisy, troughing and massive sense of entitlement…

Of course he has to be given a safe Labour seat! Ooh I hear that Hywel will be retiring soon…

 

As of June 2015, the Chair of the Bevan Foundation was Vivienne Sugar. Sugar was appointed Chair of the Welsh Consumer Council in 2003 and then of Consumer Focus Wales in Jan 2008, where she remained until April 2014 when the UK Government transferred its functions to the CAB, the CAB being one of the domains of Lucille Hughes. Consumer Focus (now known as Consumer Futures) was an executive non-departmental public body of the Dept of Business, Innovation and Skills and represented consumers across regulated markets. The Secretary of State for the Dept of BIS, 2009-10 and its predecessor, the Dept of Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform, 2008-09, was Mandy.

I have mentioned in previous posts that one of Mandy’s civil servants and right hand women was a local star from Anglesey, the daughter of Ron Evans. Ron was the crooked lawyer who worked for Gwynedd County Council and was the Brains behind the attempts to imprison me on the basis of the perjury of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team (see post ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’). Documents in my possession demonstrate that Ron was acting on the orders of Lucille Hughes. Ron was also offering his services to Gwynedd Health Authority and when that body became Gwynedd Community NHS Trust in respect of their attempts to imprison me, although Ron was employed by Gwynedd County Council not the NHS.

Mandy spent many years trying in vain to transform the Windbag into a PM. It was during those years that Ron Evans repeatedly tried to have me stitched up and imprisoned. Mandy is a former Lambeth Councillor, Lambeth being a Borough who’s children’s homes were infiltrated by a paedophile gang with links to Dafydd and Lucille’s gang in north Wales. Children in the care of Lambeth were sent to children’s homes in north Wales.

 

Vivienne Sugar was born in Gorseinon, Swansea and studied at Leeds University. She held positions at Newport Borough Council and Cardiff City Council; Sugar was Director of Housing in both Councils. In 1995 Sugar was appointed Chief Executive to the City and County of Swansea, where she remained until 2003.

So not only was Vivienne in the thick of the scoundrels in Newport Borough and Cardiff City Councils, but she presided over Swansea during those years when the enormous problems in the Social Services in Swansea were, as usual, ignored, concealed and denied, until the explosion which followed the murder of the baby Aaron Gilbert in 2005, by which time Vivienne Sugar had scarpered from the wreckage. The Inquiry and investigations that followed Aaron’s death confirmed what many people had known for years, that Swansea Social Services were negligent fuckwits who had no idea what they were doing. Aaron’s murder was one of those cases of ‘Christ, however was any of this allowed to happen?’ There was a bit of a scrap after Aaron’s death, because someone from Swansea Social Services was actually sacked. However, they bravely fought back in a way that only a health and welfare professional caught out after the death of a Service User can and they were subsequently reinstated. I also seem to remember that the progress up the ladder of a senior person involved was temporarily halted, but after a short interval, once the media had lost interest in the scandal, they were promoted to an even more senior position.

It was however all a bit embarrassing for Swansea Social Services, who pioneered the excuse of ‘it wasn’t social workers who killed Aaron’ accompanied by comments that there ‘will always be’ ‘wicked’ and ‘evil’ people who murder children and the people responsible for Aaron’s death were now in prison. Which indeed they were. They were two troubled young people who had been in the ‘care’ of the ‘services’ themselves, who could not look after Aaron but had been left to stew nonetheless. It was revealed that the neighbours had been deeply concerned about the welfare of Aaron and one of them had rung Swansea Social Services and told them that he was being neglected. Unfortunately because the neighbour concerned told the Social Services that Aaron’s mum was behaving like a tart and was hanging around with junkies, Swansea Social Services refused to act on the information as a result of the ‘inappropriate’ and ‘judgemental’ language used by the caller. So when Aaron was murdered by the casual addict boyfriend of his mum, Swansea simply denounced the tart and the addict as ‘evil’, being so non-judgemental themselves.

The tart herself had not played any part in the murder of her baby, but she was jailed for the newly-created crime of ‘familial homicide’; it was the first such prosecution in Wales, on the grounds that the tart had ‘allowed’ the crime to happen. She had not conducted herself in a particularly sensible manner, but she was 21, had grown up in care and was terrified of the man who did kill her baby. She was not in the house when her boyfriend killed Aaron.

‘Familial homicide’ was introduced in the Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Act 2004 to deal with parents who keep silent or blame each other for fatal injuries involving children. I am waiting for similar legislation to be passed with regard to all those well-paid professional people who have kept quiet about the abuse of vulnerable people in Wales and elsewhere.

After Aaron’s mother and her boyfriend were jailed, NSPCC Cymru/Wales Director, Greta Thomas, said ‘Without this new law it is likely that Rebecca Lewis and Andrew Lloyd would have joined a long list of couples who have been acquitted or not even brought to trial for murdering a child.’

NSPCC Cymru – and the wider NSPCC – were among many who knew about the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal and other gangs carrying out organised abuse but who remained silent, even when their own staff were involved in the abuse. It was the NSPCC who established the Helpline to ‘support’ those who gave evidence at the trials of some of the few who were prosecuted for abuse in north Wales. Very few people would agree to give evidence because they feared reprisals. The managers of the Helpline were former social workers in north Wales who were colleagues of the abusers. One of the few people who dared avail themselves of the support provided by the Helpline was found dead. The NSPCC stated in response that they had followed policy and were fully covered by their insurance. See previous posts.

 

A few other Social Service Dept’s have taken a leaf out of Swansea’s book since Aaron’s death and after monumental cock-ups they have simply observed that it wasn’t the social workers wot did it. Er no, the social workers weren’t the ones who actually bludgeoned the victims to death, but lest anyone has taken their eye off the ball, I will remind everyone that Social Services Depts were established and are run – at the cost of many millions – to prevent such events happening. That is why the senior managers are paid high salaries, why everyone in the Dept is actually employed and why legislation is in place which gives them enormous power over birth parents, foster and adoptive parents and other family members/carers. If they are simply going to wash their hands of everything entirely, let’s just sack the lot of them, shut the Social Services down and save the taxpayer a great deal of money. At the same time, we can close the police force down because it is after all the robbers wot do it not the police and shut down the schools, because it’s the kids who fail their exams, not the teachers. Why not just destroy the whole of society Swansea Social Services, after all it’s not working very effectively is it?

In 2005 – Aaron Gilbert was murdered in May 2005 – Vivienne Sugar was appointed as Wales Adviser to the Joseph Rowntree Foundation and also became Pro-Chancellor of Swansea University, a position that she held until 2012. The Bevan Foundation has commissioned the JRF to carry out work. Another person who has had a go at being Wales Adviser to the JRF is Michael Trickey. Trickey is married to Jane Hutt, who is the Labour AM for the Vale of Glamorgan. Jane is a former social worker who founded Welsh Wimmin’s Aid and was the Welsh Gov’t Minister for Health and Social Services as the disaster which led to Aaron Gilbert’s death unfolded. Having been such a roaring success in that post, Rhodri then gave Hutt the job of Minister for Assembly Business and appointed her Chief Whip. In July 2007 Rhodri made Jane Minister for Children, Education, Lifelong Learning and Skills, where she cluttered up the corridors until Dec 2009. As havoc prevailed at Bangor University…

 

I was told by a friend who is an academic in Bradford that the JRF are well-known for only funding research bids submitted by people whom are already favoured by them. A professional bid writer at a Russell Group university told my friend that if one is not already in the inner circle of the JRF, it is not worth submitting any bids to them, no matter what the JRF are requesting. The only way that academics extract funding out of the JRF is by making friends with them and joining the club. A look at those who do receive funding from the JRF is instructive. They do indeed seem to favour certain people, particularly Professor Danny Dorling, the JRF really loves Danny. Danny writes much about poverty and exclusion and he does his stats and analyses, but one area that Danny does not touch is the neglect and abuse of vulnerable people by the welfare services themselves. Never mind, it’s been enough to transport him from Sheffield University to Oxford University.

 

Until December 2013 Vivienne Sugar was Chair of the National Regeneration Panel advising the Welsh Government. Vivienne is a consultant to Local Government and a member of the Council of the Property Ombudsman. She is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Housing.

Here’s Viv picking up an honorary Doctor of Law degree from Swansea University in 2013, the year after she finished being their Pro-Chancellor:

 

Vivienne Sugar

 

In the spiel on Swansea University’s website, it is explained that during Viv’s tenure as Pro-Chancellor, the University ‘experienced one of the most dramatic periods of growth and transformation in its history, including the realisation of plans for the construction of the University’s new Science and Innovation Campus’. A great many of Those In The Dark such as I wondered how the scandal ridden troubled wreckage of an institution which was Swansea University managed to persuade the Welsh Gov’t to stump up for that Science and Innovation Campus. I presumed that it had something to do with Rhodri Morgan, because Rhodri Morgan’s friends and relations virtually run Swansea University (see post ‘A Bit More Paleontology’), but the presence of Viv, an insider throughout the decades of corruption in the rotten Councils of south Wales, won’t have done Swansea University any harm at all.

When Viv was given her honorary degree she commented that ‘I have been particularly pleased to be involved in developing the student experience’. The students at Swansea were so impressed with their student experience that after the wrecking ball which is Professor Hilary Lappin-Scott almost single-handedly destroyed the Business School at Swansea, the students held a demo, explaining to the media that the allegations of nepotism and dreadful behaviour on the part of Hilary and the senior staff in the Business School had brought the University into such disrepute that their degrees had been devalued.

Those of us who were employed at Bangor University some years ago also enjoyed the Hilary Satan-Scott Experience. Hilary, was for a brief, terrible time, the PVC for Research at Bangor University. The damage that she did was seriously impressive. A minor crime of Hilary’s was to e mail me and tell me that she had a special interest in Wimmin should I wish to support her. I had already become aware of Hilary’s shameless lies and ruthless bullying in the direction of other members of staff so I sent Hilary an e mail politely saying that I had not experienced discrimination at Bangor on the basis of my gender and that being a woman without children I didn’t see any reason why I should be afforded any special privileges or indeed have anyone taking a particular interest in me because I was a Woman. Weeks later, the University refused to pay my fieldwork expenses -which they were legally obliged to pay – amounting to several hundred quid. I discovered that Satan-Scott had e mailed the finance dept refusing to sign the payment off. No reason, she just wasn’t going to do it. I had no money for petrol or groceries. My mates lent me dosh to tide me over and after communications with Satan-Scott proved fruitless, I went to see the VC who facilitated the payment of my expenses.

Shortly after that, Satan-Scott and Professor Fergus Lowe attempted to close down five Depts at Bangor University, one of them being the one in which I worked. One member of staff from one of the Depts earmarked for closure committed suicide. Satan-Scott’s plans to close down most of the University were stopped because the VC announced his retirement on the day that Satan-Scott and Fungus attempted to force the plans through. Satan-Scott tried to go ahead nonetheless but was prevented for doing so by the University Council…

Meanwhile, the grapevine let us know that while Satan-Scott was employed at Bangor, she was hobnobbing with her former colleagues at Exeter University, telling them all how shite we were and that the VC was a ‘rat leaving a sinking ship’ no less.

The late Professor Fungus Lowe, in the days when he was still in possession of hair:

Fungus’s mistress, Professor Pauline Horne:

  • Prof Pauline Horne | School of Psychology | Bangor University

 

When Fungus died in 2014, his acolytes from the School of Psychology wrote a wonderful obituary for him in which they claimed that as a young graduate from Dublin in the early 1970s, Fungus couldn’t decide whether to become a Film Director or a Psychologist, but he decided on Psychology and made his way to UCNW at Bangor to begin his PhD (see post ‘Feet In Chains’). When Fungus registered for that PhD, the Psychology Dept in Bangor was a derelict house containing a very small number of Dafydd’s mates, who did what Dafydd told them and facilitated the paedophile/trafficking gang, assisted by the rest of UCNW. I do not for one minute believe that Fungus waved goodbye to Hollywood to join Dafydd. Perhaps Pauline, someone else who inexplicably decided that her future lay as a psychologist and went up to UCNW to join old Fungus after she had been working as a biomedical researcher in the London hospitals, would like to tell us the real reason why the sociopath Fungus rocked up in Bangor to work with a paedophile gang?

Hilary Satan-Scott parted company with Bangor University shortly her failure to close the place down. By the end, she was inflicting so much damage upon the institution that there were serious discussions regarding the possibility that she was being paid by someone to damage the University. Bangor University and the VC were most definitely under attack from the paedophiles’ friends at the time (see eg. posts ‘Badlands’ and ‘A Discovery Of Witches’), but whether Satan-Scott was a gift from them or just a fuckwit I don’t know.

When Satan-Scott finally departed the parish, it was rumoured that she had been sacked and escorted off the premises by security, but no-one leaked any information, not even Professor Colin Baker aka The Sieve, so we all remained in the dark, save for a brief e mail from the Registrar telling us all that the nightmare was over and no more would be said about the matter.

My most bizarre Satan-Scott Experience occurred when Duncan Tanner, the former Director of Research at Bangor University, died. Because Hilary was such a nightmare, a lot of the staff, including me, were going to Duncan for advice and mentoring. Duncan was a Welsh Labour modern historian and some of the work that I was doing overlapped with his field, so we began working together. One day I arrived at work and I saw Hilary heading towards me. Because I thought that I would just be berated with more fuckwittery about Wimmin, I tried to escape, but Hilary  caught up with me and opened the conversation with ‘Eee you knew Duncan very well didn’t you? You were working together weren’t you? Well ‘e’s dead. ‘Is ‘eart I understand. Ee, very sad.’ And then she buggered off.

I was gobsmacked, so I went to my office. It was still before 8 am, so the only people whom I could ring to check out this story were my friends but none of them knew whether Duncan had died. One of them observed ‘well surely even Hilary isn’t such a psycho that she’d have told you that Duncan was dead when he’s not’. I found out within the next hour that Duncan had indeed died, just hours before, at Ysbyty Gwynedd. Duncan was only 51 and he died during a minor, routine operation which should never have led to his death. But that’s Ysbyty fucking Gwynedd for you and no doubt the truth will never be told about that death.

Shortly after Duncan’s death, ‘The Daily Post’ ran a fictitious Good News story about the miracles which had been performed on a patient who had died and come back to life repeatedly no less while in the care of one of Ysbyty Gwynedd’s cardiologists. I knew the Lazarus who was at the centre of the story. Some years previously I had caught her stealing from an older lady whom I used to lodge with and her alcoholic husband had been offering to provide ‘sex education’ for the young adult daughter of the older lady, a young woman who had learning disabilities and mental health problems. When I challenged Lazarus and the alkie about their conduct, they rang the relatives of the older lady and her daughter and told them that a Dangerous Mental Patient had moved in with them. The Arfon Community Mental Health Team were delighted to confirm to the relatives that indeed I was Dangerous, so Dangerous that they would refuse to visit the older lady and her daughter – who were both ‘clients’ of the Arfon Team – if I remained in the house. I moved out to give everyone a quiet life.

I raised my concerns about that offer of ‘sex education’ but I was ignored.

The older lady, when she was younger, had a child forcibly and unlawfully removed from her at birth by the combined forces of Dafydd, St David’s Laundry in Bangor and her mother, whom she did not get on with. She old lady’s ‘difficult’ behaviour was manifested by her refusing to shut up about the baby whom had been abducted. She told me that she had called him Martin and all that she knew about him was that he had been given to a couple in Cheshire. Her one wish was to trace him before she died but no-one would help her. She was found dead in her house near Caernarfon during the period of time between 2002 and 2003 when the Hergest Unit were trying to frame me for ‘threatening to kill Alun Davies’. My post ‘Oliver!’ and the comments which follow it explain that Davies made eight or nine phone calls to the police demanding that they arrest and charge me while he was in a meeting at the Welsh Assembly with Jane Hutt and her officials. At the time, I was sitting in a locked ward in the Hergest Unit, injured, having been denied contact with the police to report the assault on me by four Angels, which had resulted in the injury.

Documents now in my possession show that at the same time, Dr Sadie Francis also made a number of claims that I had threatened her and that she was too frightened to come near me. Other documents written at the same time – by Sadie – confirm that I had not threatened Sadie and no, she was not frightened of me. It appears that Sadie had only made such statements in an attempt to assist the cause of Alun Davies and Dr Tony Roberts, a Hergest Unit psychiatrist who had previously worked with Dafydd at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh, who were both desperate to frame me, on the grounds that I should be imprisoned for my terrible crimes.

A subsequent complaint by me to the GMC about Tony Roberts did not result in an investigation. However, a forged letter to the GMC purporting to be from me about Tony Roberts, was found in the possession of the GMC at a later date. See post ‘The General Medical Council And Yet Another Forged Document’.

 

Here are a few other middle aged men involved with the Labour Party with knowledge of skulduggery who died relatively young and unexpectedly from heart problems:

Robin Cook-close crop.jpg

Then of course there was Michael Carr, the Labour MP for Bootle, who died in the ‘care of’ the Walton Hospital, 57 days after he took office, after tangling with both Militant and the paedophiles’ friends. Walton Hospital was effectively run by Militant. See post ‘News From Sicily’.

 

A memorial service was held for Duncan Tanner at Bangor University, during which The Red Flag was sung. At the memorial service, a number of people insulted the VC. But then the paedophiles’ friends had insulted the VC at his own wife’s memorial service, so why are we not surprised. The person who sat behind me at Duncan’s memorial service was a local lawyer, Frances Jones, who told those sitting next to her that Bangor University was being wrecked by the VC’s strategy.

I recognised Frances Jones because just a few weeks earlier, she had joined me at Bangor Police Station when I was unlawfully arrested by Elfed Roberts, the Chair of the North West Wales NHS Trust, for having pink hair, calling his car a penismobile and because he was fed up with my complaints. Frances certainly got me out of the police station quickly and I heard no more from the police. But interestingly enough I heard no more from Frances either, although she had extracted a confession, which was recorded, from the police officer involved, a DC Steve Power, that I had been unlawfully harassed and arrested. I recognised DC Power. He was the police officer who some years before had refused to take a statement or investigate my complaint after I was assaulted by Angels in the Hergest Unit in 2002, although I had been given an appointment with DC Power for the very purpose of making a statement about the matter, having been denied contact with the police by the Angels in the immediate aftermath of the assault. See previous posts.

I was later told by a colleague that Frances Jones is the favoured lawyer for ‘the villains of Anglesey, she gets them off every time’.

Dafydd and many of his henchmen live on Anglesey.

When I took delivery of yet more of my medical records some two years ago, Frances Jones’s name was on them. In one of the cases against me brought by Gwynedd Social Services in an attempt to imprison me in the early 1990s, Frances had been the lawyer who had prepared the ‘exhibits’. The ‘exhibits’ included affidavits sworn by members of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team – two of whom had never met me – which were substantially untrue. Furthermore, documents in my possession contain information which suggests that the four perjurers of the Arfon Team had not actually seen those affidavits which they had previously ‘sworn’ and ‘signed’ when they arrived at Chester Court to give evidence against me. I know this because of the instructions provided to the Arfon perjurers in a little handwritten note written by Ron Evans, the corrupt solicitor who was employed by Gwynedd County Council. Ron told the perjurers to arrive for the case early, to make themselves known to the clerk of the court who will be expecting them and who will then ‘show them where to go’ so that they can ‘familiarise themselves’ with the affidavits. This was the court case over which Justice John Roch – later Lord Justice Roch – presided. The venue and judge were changed just before the case. I have a copy of the note written by Ron to the perjurers telling them this and giving them details of the new venue, but my barrister wasn’t told. She was sent to the wrong court and arrived very late, so didn’t have time to speak to me before the case.

However, whoever had ‘prepared’ the exhibits had told so many lies in the affidavits that the lies in each affidavit were inconsistent with the other ones. Something like 14 charges against me were thrown out. Did Roch make any comment about the industrial scale perjury? Er no. Roch instead offered the perjurers extra time to rewrite their statements to co-ordinate their lies.

See post ‘Some Big legal Names Enter The Arena’.

Frances! How can the villains of Anglesey rely on you when you couldn’t even achieve consistency with the lies in those statements? Could it possibly be because rather than being a hot shot, you are completely fucking bent?

Ron Evans knew all about the abuse of kids in north Wales, because his wife Dinah told me that he did. Dinah told me that when the investigations into the abuse of kids in north Wales began, Ron told everyone that they must never, ever say a word about it to anyone, because what had happened was so bad and so indefensible that everyone would go to prison. Dinah had no idea that I was one of the witnesses whom her husband had shafted, I only got to know her years later when I worked as a sociologist at Bangor. I got to know Dinah because she was a lecturer in the Dept of History at Bangor, having finished her PhD with Duncan Tanner. Dinah is a magistrate in north Wales!

I don’t think that Dinah was in on the skulduggery that was happening at Bangor University at the time of Duncan’s death. Years previously Ron had developed cancer and had a breakdown and the north Wales NHS being what it is, Ron was left to rot. The paedophiles’ friends will have theorised that if Ron died, it will have been one less person who knew what they all did. Dinah thought Duncan was marvellous and she was distraught when he died; she also really loathed Hilary Satan-Scott.

Dinah, you are completely out of your depth. This lot are terrible, they are still killing witnesses and they threw you and Ron to the wolves years ago.

Dinah is a neighbour of Dr Sadie Francis. After Tony Francis killed himself, Sadie told Dinah that it was my fault. Dinah didn’t realise that I was the ‘awful woman’ whom she had been told hounded poor Tony to death, but I worked out from the context that it was me…

Dinah’s colleague in the History Dept who also worked closely with Duncan is Professor Andrew Edwards. Andrew went to university as a mature student; before that Andrew was a police officer in the North Wales Police.

Duncan died in Feb 2010.

This man was PM at the time:

  • Gordon Brown's battle for Britain: 'You have to think ...
  • William Keegan: Gordon Brown Saved Britain... and May Even ...

 

In Feb 2010 Mandy, for whom Ron and Dinah’s daughter was working as a senior aide, was Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills. Universities fell under Mandy’s remit. Mandy was also at the time Lord President of the Council. One of the functions of the Lord President of the Council is that of the visitor for the constituent colleges of the University of Wales, except for Lampeter. By the time that Mandy was Lord President of the Council, Bangor had very recently waved a fond farewell to the University of Wales and was a university in its own right, Bangor University. But what with all those tentacles, I’m sure that Mandy knew a man who could.

Two paedophiles’ friends who really loathed the VC were the leading lights in the School of Theology and Religious Studies at Bangor, Professor Densil Morgan and Dr Catrin Haf Williams. Densil and Catrin Haf had made a great nuisance of themselves for years and there were many complaints from students of vicious bullying and unfair practice on the part of Densil and Catrin; there was also a steady exodus of their students changing course and escaping to other Depts. So there was much celebrating when word got around that Densil and Catrin would be leaving Bangor.

There were constant allegations that the VC was going to close the School of Theology and a paedophiles’ friend hurled insults at him in one public meeting on this basis. However the School of Theology didn’t close, although Densil and Catrin departed – for Lampeter. I had a friend who was a theologian and he told me that Lampeter really did not want Densil and Catrin Haf because their reputation for toxicity was known throughout the UK, but Densil and Catrin Haf had done a deal with another authority somewhere (but I can’t remember which one) to relocate to Lampeter. Within a few years of Densil and Catrin arriving, many members of staff from the Theology Dept at Lampeter found themselves jobs in other universities.

Densil is a Nonconformist Minister. He comes from West Glamorganshire and was was educated at UCNW and Regents Park College, Oxford. He trained for Ministry at the North Wales Baptist College. Following ordination, Densil was settled to the Welsh Baptist group of churches centred on Penygroes in Gwynedd where he ministered for some years before moving to assist two churches on Anglesey. It was after this that Densil became a member of staff of the School of Theology and Religious Studies at Bangor. He also became Warden of the North Wales Baptist College, Bangor on the retirement of the previous Principal, the Rev’d John Rice Rowlands.

That biography suggests that Densil knows a great deal about much of the wrongdoing discussed on this blog. Densil is the man who has written the hagiographies of J.E. Daniel, a theologian and inspector of schools in north Wales. J.E. Daniel was one of the founder members of Plaid. Dafydd knew J.E. Daniel and also knows his son, Huw Daniel. See post ‘Tan yn Llyn’.

Huw Daniel is a bent judge who was a colleague of John Roch. Huw Daniel presided over the hearings after Alun Davies and the perjurers of the North West Wales NHS Trust had me arrested and charged for ‘threatening to kill Alun Davies’. The charge was withdrawn on the first day of the trial but nonetheless Huw Daniel issued a restraining order banning me from NHS properties which he knew was legally invalid. No questions were asked about the perjury by anyone. See previous posts.

 

Catrin Haf’s father is the clergyman who conducted the marriage of William and Ffion Hague. William Hague, in his capacity as Secretary of State for Wales, orchestrated the carefully rigged Waterhouse Inquiry and Ffion met William when she was working as a civil servant in the Welsh Office, when the Welsh Office was full of people concealing organised abuse in Wales and had been for decades. When Miranda became PM in 1997, he appointed Ron Davies as Secretary of State for Wales. The Ron who had been doing many interesting things that were well-known in south Wales for years, such as cottaging in public, but who was only outed in the media when he had that moment of madness on Clapham Common with a male prostitute called Boogie (see previous posts, including ‘Cottaging At Castle Gate). Ron’s (now ex) wife Christina Rees is a barrister who since 2015 has been the Labour MP for Neath and is now the Shadow Secretary of State for Wales. Who did of course know nothing at all about Ron’s Ugandan activities, even if the rest of south Wales did.

When Ron stepped down after the much publicised encounter with Boogie, he was replaced by Alun Michael, the Labour MP for Cardiff South and Penarth and AM for Mid and West Wales. Michael was born on Anglesey, went to school in Colwyn Bay and is a former journalist, youth and community worker, magistrate and City of Cardiff Councillor, who also knew a great deal more about the abuse of vulnerable people in Wales than he ever admitted. Alun Michael subsequently became FM of Wales, but scarpered as soon as the Waterhouse Report was published (see post ‘News From Sicily’). Alun is now the Police and Crime Commissioner for South Wales.

Alun’s son Tal Michael was based in London and held a senior role in a London Borough Council until he felt the pull of hiraeth some ten years ago and landed in north Wales. Tal immediately bagged the job as Chief Exec of the North Wales Police Authority and then stood for election as the Police and Crime Commissioner for North Wales. He was unsuccessful and then tried to become the Labour AM for Ynys Mon when Dafydd’s mate Ieuan Wyn Jones stood down as the Plaid AM for Ynys Mon in 2013. Allegations of dirty tricks were made regarding the process by which Tal was selected as the Labour candidate. Tal didn’t have much luck at the polls and he now runs the CAB for Gwynedd. Lucille Hughes has been involved with the senior management of the CAB in Wales for years.

I once had the pleasure of sitting in an IWA meeting with Tal who assured me that Labour were a dead cert to win the next General Election. I told him that they wouldn’t. Tal snapped that they would, all the polling showed that they would. I told Tal that polls had got it very wrong before. Tal shot back with that was only one General Election when Thatch won unexpectedly.

Tal: Did you notice that Ed Miliband didn’t win the General Election? I know that you told everyone that he would and Ed was so sure that he would that he even promised the tossers like Tristram, Ed and Yvette Cabinet jobs, but he LOST. I told you that he would because I could see that even Labour voters were sick of what was going on. I might be an Empowered Service User Tal rather than a candidate for Police and Crime Commissioner or the Labour AM for Ynys Mon, but I don’t spend my time lording it over people so I tend to know what’s going on at ground level and my father didn’t conceal the fucking Westminster Paedophile Ring either.

A Chip Off The Corrupt Old Bastard’s Block:

Who's who in the Anglesey Welsh Assembly by-election ...

 

 

After mergers, some years ago, the University of Wales Lampeter became the University of Wales Trinity St David. Densil and Catrin Haf were not the only people who exited Bangor only to make their way to Trinity St David. The Crack of Doom aka Meri Huws, formerly a PVC at Bangor and former bedfellow of many a Welsh Gov’t Minister, including it is rumoured Rhodri The Ale Twat himself (see post ‘People With Energy’), left for the green green grass of Trinity St David after causing much destruction in north Wales. In the 1980s, Meri was a community social worker in Bangor and her patch included Ty’r Felin children’s home, in which children were physically and sexually abused and sold for sex by their social workers in north Wales and further afield, including in Dolphin Square in London (see post ‘Are You Local?’).

Nefyn Dodd, the manager of Ty’r Felin, used to boast of his friendship with Dafydd. When Meri was Head of the School of Lifelong Learning in Bangor University, that School offered ‘courses’ carried out in collaboration with Dafydd and Lucille’s Charity CAIS.

Another person who has found themselves a nice little number at Trinity St David wearing her environmentalism hat is Jane Davidson, the former AM for Pontypridd, who was the Welsh Gov’t Minister for Education and Lifelong Learning. Jane Davidson is from Birmingham and has a background in education, but by a process of which I know nothing arrived in Wales and was sufficiently well-networked with those we know and love to sit as a Cardiff City Councillor and then bag a seat in the newly created Welsh Assembly. Davidson’s time as Minister for Education was notorious for the business over ELWA.

ELWA was yet another organisation which provided a few highly paid jobs for the paedophiles’ friends and benefited no-one else to any great extent, although it swallowed a great deal of taxpayers’ cash. ELWA went under the umbrella of being a ‘learning and training’ organisation. At one point it was realised that Jane had authorised the transfer of £2 million from ELWA into the hands of another company who could not explain where the dosh had gone. Neither had Gov’t accounting procedures been followed and other irregularities had not been disclosed when requested.

The Chair of ELWA at the time was Enid Rowlands. Enid, the ‘proud north Waleian’ refused to relocate to south Wales when appointed as Chair of ELWA, nearly all of whose staff were in south Wales. The Enid who is married to Huw Vaughan Thomas, who was Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council when the paedophile gang were busy within…

After the £2 million fiasco and the redundancy of nearly 100 staff, Enid refused to resign as Chair of ELWA. An interim Chief Exec had been appointed – Dr Peter Higson. Higson was an Executive Director of the North Wales Health Authority when one Enid Rowlands was the Chair. Dr Peter Higson is now Chairman of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board.

For further details regarding this sordid con and the huge conflicts of interest of everyone involved, see post ‘You Know I’m No Good…’

 

I note that Jane Davidson was Minister for Education just as I began my teaching career and the paedophiles’ friends had noted that and were sending each other memos that they would have to put a stop to this…

 

Densil and Catrin Haf were famed for their poison, but even some of the more benign members of staff of the School of Theology at Bangor knew much about the wrongdoing of Dafydd et al. Eryl Davies – later Professor Eryl Davies – was when I was in my first year at UCNW, warden of the hall where I lived, Llys Tryfan. Eryl was very popular among the students because he didn’t hassle us and people used to drop in at his for a coffee. I never heard any allegations about Eryl doing things to undergrads that he should not have, but he knew all about Gordon Farley, the sexual harasser who was employed as a lecturer in the Agriculture Dept (see post ‘Not Seen Since The 80s – Carwyn’), because Farley had been warden the year before Eryl was and there had been constant problems with Farley finding himself in the rooms of female students when he hadn’t been invited in. All this was discussed quite openly in front of Eryl, the anecdotes were legion and Eryl was on the scene when a pissed Farley crashed a students party and tried to grope the girls.

There was another reason why Eryl was held in high esteem by the students. That was because it was said that Eryl refused to let the Drug Squad into Llys Tryfan. In the 1980s the Drug Squad in north Wales were notorious for their corruption (see previous posts) and were constantly hassling students and hippies; carrying out busts and if they didn’t find any drugs, they’d plant them. People had so much grief that some people who were in possession of recreational chemicals and didn’t want to be hassled moved into Llys Tryfan for a quiet life. I don’t know WHY the Drug Squad obeyed Eryl’s instructions not to enter, they certainly didn’t obey such instructions from anyone else and they didn’t even obey the law, but it was true that they did not come near Llys Tryfan. They didn’t even pay a visit to the boy who lived on the floor below me who set up shop, kept his scales for weighing out the drugs on the windowsill and who did a roaring trade.

Eryl did something else as well that I never heard any of the staff at UCNW doing; he visited the students who were taken to the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. I have mentioned in previous posts that very few students did go to Denbigh. Because of what Dafydd et al were actually doing out there, huge efforts made to ensure that students were kept well away from Denbigh lest middle class English parents hear a terrible tale and ask questions, but a few stragglers did end up there and Eryl would go out and see them. I always thought that was very good of Eryl and I’m sure that the students appreciated it, but I know that Eryl did know much of what Dafydd et al was up to. Eryl grew up in north east Wales and his brother was a dentist in that area, they will have known a great deal about Dafydd and the gang.

Furthermore Eryl knew Patient F, who, after challenging Meri Huws’s colleagues about their abuse of boys in the Ty Newydd children’s home, was framed by the Drug Squad, assaulted in the police station, framed for arson, unlawfully held in Risley Remand Centre and then in the North Wales Hospital Denbigh and subsequently relieved of his property, money and child by the paedophile gang. See previous posts. At one point F began a degree in theology at UCNW and Eryl was one of his tutors. F liked Eryl, indeed Eyl was the only tutor whom F did like, he told me that the others were absolutely dreadful and it was because of the others that F withdrew from the course. However F got to know Eryl well and F, being very chatty and extroverted, openly discussed his time in Risley and Denbigh with Eryl. F never told me whether he told Eryl what he had found out was going on at Ty Newydd, but it is highly probable that he did, it was one of F’s lines of conversation because he was so shocked at the way in which the boys were treated.

 

Following Hilary Satan-Scott’s adventures at Bangor, everyone presumed that she would never work again, except for Brown who said ‘oh no, she’ll be really useful to a totally unscrupulous university which wants to sack staff and close depts’. Brown predicted that Satan-Scott would soon become VC of a former poly in England and that there would be much trauma. That hasn’t happened – well not yet anyway – but within months of leaving Bangor, Satan-Scott landed her job as a PVC at Swansea University…

However Hilary has managed to win an award for being an Inspirational Woman and get herself photographed with HRH Princess Snap.

See previous posts for more information re Hilary Satan-Scott.

One thing that I did hear on the grapevine was that Hilary was going nowhere in her previous job at Exeter University which was why she went to Bangor. Yet Hilary hated Bangor, hated ‘The Welsh’ and was still batting for her old mates at Exeter. Her relocation didn’t make much sense even if she did want to Move On. There were also rumours that Bangor University investigated the possibility of suing Exeter for providing such a misleading reference with regard to Satan-Scott’s abilities.

The VC of Exeter University who oversaw Satan-Scott’s departure was Professor Sir Steve Smith, who has been Vice-Chancellor of the University of Exeter since October 2002. Steve Smith was previously Senior Pro Vice-Chancellor at Aberystwyth, where Steve Smith was most unpopular. Sir Steve is a graduate of the University of Southampton, which is an institution that hosted many high profile Top Doctors who afforded protection for Dafydd and the gang (see post ‘Professor Prestigious And His Associates’).

Exeter has excelled in its choice of Chancellors as well. Their current Chancellor is Lord Paul Myners. Myners was brought up in Truro, Cornwall, and has led a ‘distinguished career’ in international banking and business. Myners attended Truro School and obtained a First Class Honours degree in Education and a PGCE from the University of London, after which he taught for a year in Inner London, 1971-72, by which time kids from inner London were being exported to the children’s homes of north Wales. Myners proceeded. Myners then entered journalism via the Daily Telegraph and moved into a 20-year career in the City as a fund manager, initially at N M Rothschild & Sons Ltd, then at Gartmore plc until 2001.

In 2008, Myners was appointed City Minister in Gordon Brown’s Government and joined the Lords. He now sits as a crossbencher.

Myners has Chaired a number of public companies including Marks & Spencer, Land Securities and Chaired non-commercial organisations, including The Tate and the Low Pay Commission.

Many moons ago when the Royal College of Psychiatrists was first established, Professor Martin Roth was for some reason given a huge loan by M&S, the purpose of which was to buy the Royal College a magnificent building in Belgravia in which to house themselves. Other Top Docs told them that they could never afford it, but grandiosity won the day and the building was purchased. The Royal College was nearly bankrupted subsequently and the grandiose building had to be quietly flogged off. I have not been able to find out why M&S helped Dafydd’s mates out in this way, but years later, the widow of the Chair of M&S also threw her lot in with the initiatives of the paedophiles’ friends.

Paul Myners has held a Directorship of the Singapore Sovereign Wealth Fund and membership of the Court of the Bank of England. He has also served on several arts and public policy boards, including as Chair of the Tate Foundation and Trustee of Glyndebourne, London Symphony Orchestra and the National Maritime Museum.

Myners was Chair of the Guardian Media Group, the publisher of ‘The Guardian’ and ‘Observer’, 2000-08. So he was installed as Chair in time to deal with the aftermath of the Waterhouse Report. No wonder we heard so little about the travesty which was the Waterhouse Inquiry and the Report.

Myners is currently working with a number of public and private companies primarily in the asset management sector.

Being a Cornishman, Paul has a love of the South West and a lifelong commitment to enhancing the future educational and economic prosperity of our region. Paul loves Cornwall so much that lives in London. His interests include contemporary art, opera and jazz.

Coming from Cornwall and going to Truro School, Paul Myners probably knew David Penhaligon, the Lib Dem MP who had much dirt on many people and who was killed in a car crash in Dec 1986, days after Professor Ollie Brooke was imprisoned for child porn offences and days after Dafydd unlawfully arrested and imprisoned me. Myners probably also knew Penhaligon’s assistant, Matthew Taylor, who took over Penhaligon’s seat and ended up bagging a seat in the Lords despite spending his entire career in obscurity. See post ‘It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not ‘Arf’.

 

Paul Myners succeeded Floella Benjamin as Chancellor of Exeter. Baroness Benjamin is a Trinidadian-British actress, author, TV presenter, singer, businesswoman and politician. She is known as a presenter of children’s programmes such as  ‘Play School’ and ‘Play Away’. On 28 June 2010, Lady Benjamin was introduced to the Lords by the Lib Dems.

Floella’s Other TV credits include ‘Angels’, ‘Within These Walls’, ‘Crown Court’ and ‘Dixon of Dock Green’.

Benjamin is Vice-President of NCH Action for Children and Barnardo’s and was in the NSPCC’s Hall of Fame. She runs the London Marathon to raise funds for Barnardo’s and the Sickle Cell Society.

Staff of the NCH and Barnardo’s, as well as the NSPCC, were involved with the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal and in organised abuse elsewhere. George Thomas was Patron of the NCH, while he abused children. Thatch also supported the NCH, while she ignored warnings that her friend and Minister Sir Peter Morrison was abusing children in care, including in north Wales.

In July 2007 Floella spoke of what she saw as the low standard of children’s television. In Floella’s ‘Play School’ heyday, Jimmy Savile was a staple of children’s and young people’s TV.

In March 2013, Floella used a speech marking International Wimmin’s Day to warn of the impact on children of the availability of violent pornographic material online, claiming this was leading to the increasing objectification of women. 

John Allen’s gang in north Wales used their victims to make child porn which catered to the most exotic tastes, including bestiality.

Floella is a Patron of the charidee Beating Bowel Cancer, having lost her mother to the disease in and knowing much about tumour biology, having previously presented ‘Play School’.

What can we see through the Round Window? Some histopathology slides? No, it’s Big Ted, Little Ted, Humpty, Hambel and Jemima:

In October 2015, in a talk to migrant children, Floella Benjamin said that dropping her accent was the key to her success and that migrant pupils should do the same to avoid racism and bullying. Floella: advising people to drop their foreign accents IS racist bullying, even if the advice is emanating from the Black Baroness with a healthy coating of red lipstick.

I suspect that the real key to Floella’s success was keeping schtum about Savile, Rolf, Stuart Hall and a few others who are sitting next to her in the Lords. I wonder if Floella ever met BBC comedy favourite Spike Milligan who was on record as saying that he could never accept that an Indian man was the equivalent of a white man? Changing one’s accent is not going to make any difference in the face of such theory.

The Chancellor of Exeter University, 1998-05, was the Tory Peer Robert Alexander QC. Alexander was Chair of the Bar Council 1985-86. He represented Jeffrey Archer in his successful libel case against the Star in 1987 – the case that the Star later took to appeal when new evidence emerged that Archer had perjured himself, which eventually resulted in Archer going to prison. The case hinged upon whether Archer had paid a prostitute for sex or not. The prostitute herself was not available to give evidence at Archer’s trial for perjury, having most conveniently keen killed as a result of a car crash shortly before the trial. See post ‘Tuppence And His Fragrant Wife’.  Alexander retired from the Bar in 1989 and was Chair of Nat West Bank, 1989-99.

 

Exeter also has a Royal connection, with Princess Snap’s two children, Peter and Zara Phillips, having attended the university. No wonder Princess Snap gave Hilary Satan-Scott an award for being Inspirational.

Exeter has another Royal connection as well. The authorities at Exeter University forced Professor Edzard Ernst out of his job after pressure from Carlo, because Edzard’s work showed that many complementary therapies were clinically ineffective and Edzard refused to fiddle his results (see post ‘And The Lucky Winners Are…’).

 

I have strayed a long way from Vivienne Sugar, so let me return to her.

When Viv was Chair of Consumer Focus Wales, the Board of Consumer Focus contained a few others known to this blog, such as the quango queen Dame Suzi Leather and Sukhvinder Kaur-Stubbs. I presume that Dame Suzi and Sukhvinder were Board members of the wider Consumer Focus, as opposed to Consumer Focus Wales.

Christine Farnish was a Board member and then appointed Chair of Consumer Focus in late 2010, having Chaired the Audit and Risk Committee since 2007. Christine’s career has spanned both public and private sectors. She has been Managing Director Public Policy for Barclays Group; Chief Executive, National Association of Pension Funds; Consumer Director, FSA; Consumer Director, OFTEL; and also held senior roles in Local Government. Christine has Chaired the Family and Parenting Institute and serves as a Civil Service Commissioner. She is on the Boards of ABTA and Aggregate Industries. She formerly served on the Boards of the Office of Fair Trading, ING Direct, the ASA and Papworth NHS Trust. 

Not only do the experiences of millions of people who have been systematically fleeced in various ways by the financial services suggest that Christine has not regulated the financial services in any way in any of her roles, but I doubt that she has sufficient knowledge of both the Aggregates Industry and heart and lung transplants to be making a meaningful contribution to both. Unless this really is a transplant surgeon who then became a quarryman:

Here’s Christine at work, breaking the glass ceiling:

Splitting of the slate blocks with hammer and chisel to produce roofing slates requires great skill. This process was not mechanized until the second half of the 20th century, and some slate is still produced in this way. Christine and her colleagues are working at the Dinorwic Quarry. 
Christine fancied a change after doing this for a few years:
Donor-Derived DNA Predicts Lung Transplant Rejection
Then Christine became Chair of Consumer Focus, working for Mandy, before the task of reigning in the excesses of global capitalism was handed over to Lucille at the CAB.

Mandy certainly picked them to sit on the Board of Consumer Focus. Who else was there along with Viv and Quarryman Christine but this blog’s old friend and that most excellent longstanding friend of Dafydd and the paedophile gang, Enid Rowlands, star of ELWA and the £2 million quid and wife of Huw Vaughan Thomas, Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council when the paedophile gang enjoyed themselves in Gwynedd’s children’s homes. After excelling in that role, Huw rocked up as Auditor General for Wales. Lilibet appointed him when the previous Auditor General, Jeremy Colman, was imprisoned for the possession of child porn (see previous posts). For details of Huw Vaughan Thomas’s myriad public appointments, see post ‘I Know Nuzzing…’.

Enid, a psychology graduate from north Wales, began her career working with ‘long-term unemployed and disadvantaged people’. So  Enid was off to a flying start then and is one of many who’s efforts in this sphere produced absolutely no benefit for the disadvantaged people. Not that her efforts will have been designed to do that, they will have been designed to give Enid and her peers well-paid jobs and start them on their ladders to the top of the world of quangos. It worked. Enid ‘has maintained an interest in the users of public services and the importance of working closely with the voluntary sector’ and ‘has nearly 15 years of board experience and is currently on the board of the GMC, Consumer Focus, the Information Commissioner’s Office and has recently been appointed a Trustee of the National Employment Savings Trust (NEST)’. Enid has also served as a Trustee/Advisory Board Member of RNID as well as the Prince’s Trust. Enid’s husband Huw is also big in the Prince’s Trust. Enid has also been Chair of Victim Support and of the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority. She had sat on the Board of S4C, on the North Wales Police Authority and on the North Wales Health Authority.

Previous posts on this blog have described the many breaches of the Data Protection Act that I have found the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board to have committed. A few days ago, someone e mailed me with much info regarding how serious the wrongdoing was and recommended that I take the matter up with the Information Commissioner. I did do that more than a year ago and the matter was never investigated. Now that I know that Enid is involved I understand why the Information Commissioner just didn’t bother to do their job or even pretend to do it.

 

Other Trustees of Consumer Focus include Cerys Furlong. Cerys is another person who is well-networked into the right crowd. In Feb 2017, Cerys became Chief Exec of Chwarae Teg, the ‘gender equality’ and ‘wimmin’s economic development’ organisation which Jane Hutt was pivotal in establishing. English readers might be interested to know that ‘Chwarae Teg’ is Welsh for ‘Fair Play’. I suggest that the organisation changes its name to ‘Llygredd a Nepotiaeth’…

The PR puff about Cerys said at the time that ‘Ms Furlong has spent over a decade working in the public, private and voluntary sector in Wales. She has been Director for Wales at the Learning and Work Institute for the last three years, and has a vast amount of experience in politics, government, research and public affairs.

Former Cardiff City Councillor Ms Furlong also holds a number of voluntary positions and is a Trustee and Vice Chair for The Bevan Foundation and a Board member at Chapter Arts Centre. Alongside her husband, Tom Furlong, she has also established several successful food and hospitality businesses in Cardiff, including The Potted Pig, Porro, The Lansdowne pub and The Grange pub.

Ms Furlong said: ‘I’m extremely excited to take up this role with Chwarae Teg at this crucial time in the organisation’s history. Throughout my career I’ve been a passionate advocate for gender equality and social justice, and my experience of working in both the private and public sector has showed me that tackling gender issues is just as important now as it was 25 years ago when the charity was first established.

With a fast-changing political and economic landscape facing us in Wales, my priority will be to continue the vital work Chwarae Teg does to improve the position of women in the workplace and in wider society, and to further raise the issues of gender equality and social justice within Welsh public life.’ 

Sandra Busby, Chair of the Board of Trustees at Chwarae Teg, said: ‘When recruiting for this role, it was critical that we found a candidate who could demonstrate an absolute commitment to tackling the core issues that Chwarae Teg exists to address. Cerys really impressed us with her hugely diverse range of commercial and public sector experience, and her knowledge of education and personal development makes her a perfect fit for the organisation.

Next year marks 25 years since Chwarae Teg was first set up. Thanks to a string of successful leaders including most recently Joy Kent, we have achieved so much in challenging attitudes towards gender equality in Wales and helping thousands of women progress in their careers. There’s still so much left to do, and we’re confident that Cerys will drive the organisation forward in achieving its vision of creating a Wales where women achieve and prosper.’

The economic situation for women, as well as men, is in most parts of Wales, grim. In swathes of Wales most of the jobs on offer are part-time minimum wage jobs. Huge numbers of people in Wales need to claim benefits on top of their wages to make ends meet. There are a number of well-paid jobs available for professional people in Cardiff, but that is where the miracle stops. The affluence of the affluent parts of Cardiff has not even stretched out into the valleys, let alone the rest of Wales. Chwarae Teg has not ‘helped thousands of women progress in their careers’, it has been of great assistance to a very small number of wimmin involved in the Labour Party in Wales, because a period at Chwarae Teg is almost obligatory if you are female and want a job in the Welsh Assembly.

 

Cerys Furlong completed a Sociology degree at Bristol University in 2000; undertook a Masters at Cardiff University, 2003-04; was employed as a Research Associate at the University of Oxford, April-Sept 2005, working on review of Initial Teacher Training in Wales, commissioned by the Welsh Assembly Gov’t. I do not know if Cerys is any relative of Professor John Furlong, the Professor of Education at Cardiff University.

Cerys was also:

Policy Officer, Nov 2005-March 2007 and then Programme Director, March 2007-March 2012 at the NIACE (National Institute of Advanced Continuing Education).

Cardiff City Councillor for Canton, May 2008-Dec 2013

Assistant Director of External Strategy at the OU, April 2012-Dec 2013

Board Member Agored Cymru, July 2013-July 2016

Director for Wales, Learning and Work Institute, Jan 2014-Jan 2017

Governor, ACT Training, Jan 2014-Jan 2018

Trustee, Bevan Foundation, Feb 2011-April 2018

RSA Fellow since Sep 2015

Trustee, Chapter Arts Centre, Sept 2015-present day. Cerys describes Chapter as ‘a multi-platform arts venue and has been at the heart of creativity in Cardiff for 40 years’

I’ve been to Chapter Arts Centre. I used to go there when I was a Trustee of WEN (Women’s Equality Network Wales), WEN liked holding events there. Chapter Arts Centre is very enjoyable if you are me or Cerys Furlong, but many Wimmin in Wales would never think of going there and would consider it very expensive and not to their tastes anyway. But I have found that the social justice and equality organisations in Wales do like a bit of organic luxury and also tend to book venues for their events that exclude the plebs.

Cerys has been or is a Board Member of Cardiff Capital Region Economy Growth Partnership.

She is also a Fellow of the British American Project, since Nov 2017: ‘The British American Project is a transatlantic fellowship of over 1,000 leaders, rising stars and opinion formers who come from a broad spectrum of occupations, backgrounds and political views.’

Cerys is obviously one of those Rising Stars but I can guarantee that they will not come from a broad spectrum of occupations, backgrounds and political views.

Throughout my time as a Trustee of WEN, I met a lot of nice, interesting people, but they were virtually all women from professional backgrounds, usually health and social care or business. Throughout that whole time, I only met one woman at a WEN event who had travelled there on the bus. She had come from Barry and was an Empowered Service User who was taking an interest in all sorts of things because she had lost her job. It was terrifically good to meet her, but she was the only person who didn’t have a car and a salary who I met throughout the whole time that I was mixing with the social justice/gender equality crowd.

WEN used to hold their Board meetings in the Chwarae Teg offices.

Cerys is Director of NIACE Cymru, ‘a charity that promotes opportunities for adults to learn and work’.

‘Sandra Busby left school without A levels but has become the spokeswoman for the contact centre industry in Wales…If you have anything to do with the contact centre industry in Wales you will probably have come across Sandra Busby. The vivacious managing director of the Welsh Contact Centre Forum was born and brought up in Cardiff. Her parents were young when they had her, the second of three girls. Her father was a chartered accountant, the youngest qualifying accountant in Wales at the time, with his own accountancy business employing 40 at its height, as well as running Cardiff’s first wine bar.

So Sandra is not from the mean streets herself then…

Besides bringing up the three children her mother had various jobs. She was a qualified hairdresser and had her own hairdressing business.

Sandra’s mum was a successful businesswoman as well as her dad…

The young Busby had a Catholic education, going to St Joseph’s Convent primary school then Our Lady’s Convent. “I was taught by some very mean nuns, but I was probably just very unlucky,” she said.

Sandra is treading very carefully here…

The experience of a private education convinced her not to send her own children to private school when the time came. “It doesn’t give you a good grounding in life to be in an all-girls school, it leaves you with a lot of things to learn when you leave school,” she said. “I wanted my children not just to have a mixed gender education but also an inclusive education. You don’t get to see all walks of life and you don’t get to meet the people that you’re going to come across in life with a private education.”

Despite her rejection of her schools she had a happy childhood growing up with two sisters, she says.

So Sandra’s family life was enough to counteract those bloody awful nuns, whom she remembers so well that she’s never going to put her own kids through it.

By her own account the schools her parents chose to send her to did not get the best out of her. I was one of those kids who could achieve without trying too hard and probably did not achieve to my potential in my school years,” she said.

Probably because those nuns killed any love of learning that Sandra had, but she’s not going to say a word. Sandra can’t afford to lose customers now that she runs call centres in south Wales and is Chair of Chwarae Teg. The Catholic Church still has a lot of clout and there is a big RC Community in Cardiff.

“So I gave up and my parents immediately said to me, you need to do something.” She went to college for a year to study business, then her father secured her an interview with a firm of solicitors.

Dad to the rescue!!!

She was all set to start a career as a legal secretary when a conversation with a friend sent her on a different course, one that would shape her life. “My best friend at the time was working in telesales at the Western Mail and South Wales Echo, earning what seemed to be a fortune in commission,” Busby said. “She said, there’s a vacancy, you should apply. I applied and got the job.

Well-connected friends came in useful when Sandra didn’t find the job that her dad lined up for her that inspiring.

Busby had found her niche. Beginning in the mid-80s she worked for a decade at the Western Mail and Echo, starting out by selling motors advertising and handling birth, marriage and death notices. It wasn’t long before she was promoted to field sales, visiting car dealers and “having to get under the car to speak to one-man businesses, which private school had not equipped me for.” From there she moved up to field sales manager, a post which in those days carried “real bottom line responsibility, you had your targets, you were also responsible for the training and recruiting.” When Wales on Sunday was launched she was made its general manager, a post which gave her a wider exposure to different aspects of the business. “Those 10 years gave me an unbelievable grounding. I never had so much fun as when I worked in newspapers,” she said.

Sandra spent years working in the media. She’ll have heard the dirt on absolutely everyone, including the dirt that no-one dared print.

Nevertheless, the arrival of her first child heralded a break. She planned to take two years off to look after the baby and had no plans to return to the Western Mail and Echo. But within three months she had been approached by the Cardiff Independent, a free newspaper of the time, to join them as a consultant. Within six months she was general manager. Through various changes of ownership and mergers she ended up working for the South Wales Argus, where she helped set up the newspaper’s website in the early 90s.

Even more years in the media, becoming increasingly well-connected.

But when the Argus itself was bought by Southern Newspapers her post was transferred to Portsmouth, and now the mother of two children she decided to take redundancy.

Sandra doesn’t know anyone in Portsmouth and will lose her place in the pecking order…

Once again a conversation with a friend led to a redirection, and she took up a job at the Cardiff and Newport Call Centre Initiative, a project set up by six public sector partners to attract call centres to south-east Wales.

Mates to the rescue again.

“The WDA’s focus at the time was to take business out of Cardiff and Newport and into the Valleys,” Busby said.

An everyday story of WDA (Welsh Development Agency) folk. Jobs with huge salaries for the spivs that ran the WDA, jobs in call centres for everyone else. Not for Sandra though obviously, she’s running the call centres.

“Cardiff and Newport wanted to make sure they got their fair share of any business that was out there.” At the time there were around 40 contact centres in Wales, a fifth of the number there are today.

So these are the thousands of opportunities for Wimmin. Jane Hutt gets a job as a Minister, the other thousands are in call centres. Being restricted in terms of how often they can go to the loo. Perhaps the Presiding Officer of the Senedd can start clocking Jane in and out when she goes for a wee. Jane will probably take the case to the European Court of Human Rights on the grounds that an Older Woman’s Dignity is at stake. Julie Morgan can join her and they could make it a class action.

One of the first things we wanted to do was set up a small employers’ forum so we understood what was needed to be successful,” she said. “We brought a lot of business into Wales. The WDA then joined the initiative and other local authorities joined.”

Bring on those call centres.

By the early 2000s there was close to full employment in Wales, punctuated only by areas of high economic inactivity in the Valleys.

Oh excuse me, where exactly did those figures come from? Full employment in Wales??? There has NEVER been full employment in Wales post-Thatcher. I lived there from 1981 onward, I remember it well… Furthermore the ‘punctuations’ in the valleys were not so much ‘punctuations’ as complete devastations, it was terrible and many areas never recovered.

There was some resistance to bringing further contact centre business into Wales, while at the same time call centres were being shut down and the work outsourced to India.

People found out what a con call centres were and call centre authorities being what they are, they’ll go wherever people can be exploited most effectively. That used to be Wales ‘with its full employment’ but now its India…

“I could see that the future had to be about protecting the jobs we had, handing the inward investment side back to the local authorities and the Welsh Government,” said Busby.

So Businesswoman Sandra was dependent upon taxpayers dosh to run her call centres.

“We decided to set up the Welsh Contact Centre Forum as an independent not-for-profit company that was a stand-alone business. We got some funding from the Welsh Government to kick-start us on the premise that it was an independent business that could give independent advice and help, not just to the Welsh Government but to all local authorities, and safeguard the jobs.”

More dosh from the Welsh Gov’t needed. This time to give ‘independent advice’ to other people who want to establish a call centre.

The year was 2008, and after years of growth the sector now had 24,000 people working in up to 160 contact centres in Wales.

This is a nightmare. The Welsh Gov’t gave Wimmin dosh to employ 24ooo people in bloody call centres.

It may be difficult to recall now, but in the years before the recession contact centres had a poor reputation, with negative stories about low pay, poor working conditions and high attrition of staff.

‘Negative stories’. I heard them as well, straight from the horse’s mouth, my friend’s daughter worked in a call centre.

“When we had zero unemployment the reputation of contact centres wasn’t great,” Busby admits.

Their reputation was bloody terrible, because the staff were treated so badly. By the way, when did this zero unemployment happen? I missed that.

“[They’ve] become more popular because people are now taking contact centre jobs far more seriously.”

Because so many people have been entirely cut out of the benefits system that they now have to take anything at all. Which was the point of forcing so many people off of benefits. They were getting fussy and refusing to work in Sandra’s call centres.

She added: “We’re one of the only industries that has seen a net gain during the recession…And indeed contact centre employment in Wales has risen 4,000 to 28,000 since 2008.

We’ve forced the buggers in there. I Daniel Blake In Sandra Busby’s Chwarae Teg Call Centre.

In any case, much of that reputation was undeserved, Busby insists.

So why aren’t you, Cerys and Jane Hutt working in the call centres then Sandra?

“Eighty per cent of my board started on phones, so the myth about no career is not right. And the pay was higher than recognised,” she said.

‘80% of your Board’. How many people are on your Board Sandra? 80% of that 24000 who were in the call centres across Wales after the Welsh Gov’t ‘invested’? No, I thought not. That Board will be you and a few of your mates or even members of your family.

It’s all about best practice, which the Forum helps companies to achieve. “We have an obligation to help companies achieve best practice where they want to. We have in the past asked companies to leave our membership because they haven’t operated what we consider best practice in terms of their people.”

How does one develop ‘best practice’ in a fucking call centre?

From the customer side, it was the large scale transfer of operations to India that was the main anxiety, one that Busby understands.

Well at least they’re adopting best practice over there. They’ve probably taken advice from Sandra’s Forum.

How the Philippines is crushing the Indian call center ...

 

“It’s not about accents or understanding. Companies weren’t looking at the cost to their brand. They weren’t getting it right in the UK, so what made them think they could move 12,000 miles away and get it right was beyond me.

If they ‘weren’t getting it right’ that suggests that Sandra’s Forum and Independent Advice weren’t very effective.

“It’s all about customer retention, and whereas the people in contact centres used to be considered back office, companies now understand those people are responsible for the brand.

I don’t think that I can bear much more of Sandra’s propaganda.

 

“A lot of money is being ploughed by the industry into making sure you as an individual have got channels that you want, whether you want a webchat or telephony. If you look at contact centres now, at some of the hi-tech blended [operations] where you’re dealing with phone calls, email chat, webchat, it’s not just voice now. Some of them are completely online.” The big thing facing the industry now, she adds, is mobile communications, “making it easy when you’re walking around a supermarket, that the apps are right so that people can contact you. The stats are staggering about the people who use their mobiles in supermarkets.” A staggering 10 billion calls are made each year in the UK to contact centres, so it’s perhaps not so surprising that the sector has continued to grow in recent years.

The potential for sweated labour is mindblowing, as Sandra has noticed.

And with many companies that outsourced to India bringing their operations back to Europe we’re now seeing Indian outsourcers coming to Europe because they don’t want to lose their clients, Busby says – and Wales is perfectly placed to pick up some of that business.

Because after 25 years of Chwarae Teg, people in Wales are still so desperate that they’ll get in those call centres.

There’s areas in Wales that could benefit from having a contact centre, but also businesses that would make a lot of savings by locating in certain areas of Wales,” she said.

Sandra has her eyes on a call centre near you…

The key drivers are population and skills, but Wales also has a great advantage when it comes to staff loyalty.

It’s not loyalty Sandra, it’s called ‘having no other choice’.

“I was talking to a chief executive of a company that has a base in Caerphilly and Bristol. The place in Bedwas has the same staff it’s had for 15 years, whereas in Bristol they’re constantly trying to replace staff.

Why ever would Bristol have such trouble getting people to remain working in a call centre for more than a decade??? Surely the residents of Clifton would give their right arms to work for Sandra and progress onto her Board?

 

The CEO of Chwarae Teg prior to Cerys Furlong was Joy Kent. ‘Wales Online’ helps out here once more, they published a feature on Joy in Sep 2016, which tells us that Joy has led Chwarae Teg’ for four years. During her tenure, Chwarae Teg ‘has helped thousands of women progress in their careers in Wales’. They’re sitting in Sandra’s call centres. Chwarae Teg has ‘delivered two EU and Welsh Gov’t funded programmes in Agile Nation 1 and Agile Nation 2′.

There is nothing agile about this moribund structure, which involves taxpayers’ money being given in great quantities to ruthless businesses to establish exploitative operations in Wales, while friends of Jane Hutt act as the middlemen.

‘Wales Online’ gives us the essential criteria for Chwarae Teg’s next CEO: ‘they will have a commercial mindset, flair and creativity and will also bring strong leadership, business development, networking and communication skills to the role. Previous experience of leading an organisation is essential.’

No real experience or qualifications necessary then. Just the ability to bullshit for Wales and preside over a load of people who haven’t had the benefit of parents and friends to set them up in business.

Joy Kent told ‘Wales Online’ that she was ‘immensely proud’ of the charidee’s achievements under her leadership and that ‘our work is critical to building a more inclusive Wales, not only for women but for the benefit of wider society and the economy’.

It’s such an inclusive Wales that it involves a small number of not very bright middle-class wimmin having a whale of a time by telling thousands of other wimmin that they are ‘helping their careers progress’ as they sit in call centres.

While discussing Wimmin’s Empowerment, it is worth mentioning that I saw someone whom I knew from WEN featured on BBC Wales News Online yesterday; it was Sarah Rees, who was the Chair of WEN when I was a Trustee. Sarah has given an interview about being unlawfully sacked from her job – because she had a baby. The BBC mentioned that the employer who unlawfully sacked Sarah was ‘a national women’s charity’. I don’t know whether it was WEN because Sarah has very carefully not named the organisation. If Sarah did name them, she would probably find that she’d never work in the Wimmin’s or Third Sector again. Jane Hutt would make sure of that.

 

 

Now for a man who I’ve been meaning to revisit on the blog for a while, Huw Lewis. Huw was a Labour Co-operative politician, the AM for Merthyr Tydfil and Rhymney, 1999-16. Born in Merthyr Tydfil and brought up in Aberfan, Lewis went to Edinburgh University. He was active in the Scottish Labour Party, working for both Labour Party leader John Smith and later Donald Dewar. Lewis campaigned for a Scottish Assembly alongside Edinburgh Labour Club colleagues Douglas and Wendy Alexander and Pat McFadden. What is less publicised is that Huw Lewis also knew Jack McConnell, who was at Stirling University with my best friend from school, who, along with her husband, had her media career destroyed and came under attack from gangsters after they expressed an interest in making a film about what was happening to me in north Wales (see post ‘The Turn Of The Screw’).

Jack – now Lord – McConnell became a very, very powerful figure in the Scottish Labour Party, inexplicably so for a maths teacher and local Councillor. Jack became an MSP in 1999 and by 2001 was Scotland’s FM! Not that my friends knew Jack by then. Jack’s friendship with them and the friendships of so many others who were in their crowd at Stirling sort of melted away in the late 1980s when they found themselves under attack from all angles… See previous posts (eg. ‘Badlands’) for the names of the guilty, as well as for the names of the Scottish politicians with whom Jack did his dirty deals. Gordon Brown hated one of them but Jack had Gordon by the knackers didn’t you Jack…

After returning to South Wales, Huw Lewis worked briefly as a chemistry teacher at Afon Taf High School, before working full-time for the Labour Party. Huw was elected to the position of Assistant General Secretary of Welsh Labour and organised the campaign for the Labour ‘Yes’ Vote campaign in 1997, that lead to the creation of the Welsh National Assembly.

Huw Lewis was elected to the National Assembly for Wales in 1999, at the same time as Lord Jack was elected as an MSP. Huw has been party Whip in the Assembly, a post from which he resigned following the resignation of Alun Michael as First Secretary. Alun Michael resigned as FM as soon as the Waterhouse Report was published. Huw was appointed as Deputy Minister for Education and Lifelong Learning in October 2000 – the month after I began teacher training in Bangor – a post from which Huw resigned following the use of a landfill site in Trecatti, within his constituency, for the disposal of carcasses during the foot and mouth crisis in April 2001. Huw has resigned nearly as many times as Mandy.

Huw Lewis was re-elected in 2003 and was appointed Deputy Minister for Social Justice and Regeneration in May 2003. In the Third Assembly he was appointed Deputy Minister for the Economy and Transport on 31 May 2007 but announced to the media that due to his private opposition to One Wales coalition deal with Plaid Cymru he had been sacked on 18 July 2007. The little things were hitting each other again. On 26 June 2013, in light of the resignation of Leighton Andrews, Lewis was appointed Minister for Education and Skills. Not being a Welsh speaker, that brief was returned to FM Carwyn.

In January 2016, Lewis announced that he would leave the Assembly at the May 2016 election.

Lewis is married to his second wife Lynne Neagle, who has been the Labour AM for Torfaen since 1999. Lynne was born in Merthyr and educated at Cyfarthfa High School, Merthyr and Reading University. Neagle worked as a carer in the voluntary sector and then as a Careers Development Officer. Neagle struck gold when she landed a job as Research Assistant to the Windbag’s wife. She was then a dead cert for selection to stand as an AM in a safe Labour seat.

Lynne and Huw live in Penarth – the highly desirable part of Cardiff – near to Jane Hutt and Michael Trickey, with whom Lynne and Huw are good mates…

A quick resume here. Lynne and Huw’s pal Jane was the daughter of Top Doctor Michael Hutt, a pathologist who worked at Tommy’s. Tommy’s was heaving with Top Doctors who concealed the Westminster Paedophile Ring, as well as the crimes of Dafydd et al in north Wales. Dafydd had personal friends among the Top Docs at Tommy’s and the Tommy’s Sex Therapist Professor Jim Watson was up to his neck in concealing organised abuse, including that of Dafydd’s gang. See previous posts.

Hutt completed her Certificate of Qualification in Social Work at the LSE in 1972. Look at the biographies of so many of those involved in the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal as well as the people who protected them; again and again, graduates of the LSE of Jane’s vintage and older pop up.

I do not know when Hutt came to Wales, but she helped found Welsh Wimmin’s Aid and in Jan 1978 was appointed co-ordinator. I have known enough people who worked for Welsh Wimmin’s Aid to know that the organisation was complicit with organised abuse in north Wales and elsewhere. See previous posts. By 1978, business for Dafydd and John Allen in north Wales was booming, they had hit millionaire status and there were ‘children’s homes’ all over north Wales, loads of them, warehousing hundreds of children, nearly all of whom were being horrifically abused and forced into sex work. There is no way that Welsh Wimmin’s Aid could ever have missed the scale of what was going on.

Hutt will have known the appalling Jo Richardson, another Wimmin’s Rights Campaigner who occupied key positions in the Labour Party, who carefully ignored the organised trafficking of women and their children as well as the thriving business in dangerous, illegal abortions and child abductions in north Wales/Cheshire as recently as the 1980s. The Top Doctors were central to all of it and Hutt’s father knew who was involved. See post ‘It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not Arf’.

I would be interested to learn whether Jane Hutt was a useful idiot who went to Wales anyway and went into action when she arrived or whether she was sent by a higher authority…

 

 

BBC News Wales featured a Shock Horror report yesterday. A ‘Bangor University lecturer’, Gwil Sion ap Gruffudd, has conducted some research which demonstrated that a lot of the kids at Holyhead School who are entitled to free school meals won’t claim them because of their feelings of shame, a phenomenon that Gwil has termed ‘rural pride’. I do know some kids in that position, but there are so many kids at Holyhead who are living on low incomes that I’d be surprised if ‘rural pride’ is a problem there. Particularly as Holyhead is not rural.

I know Gwil. I used to know him very, very well. I was very friendly with him for some years when I worked at Bangor University, but it all ended rather sadly.

I first became friends with Gwil when he was a PhD student in the School of Healthcare Sciences at Bangor. He was being ferociously bullied by three Angels there – who had bullied his colleague out of a job previously – and they had such a bad effect on him that he ended up having to take time off. None of it was Gwil’s fault, he was treated appallingly and he asked one of my colleagues and I for help. So we arranged for him to transfer to our Dept. He was treated very differently from then on, there were a lot of supportive people around him, including two Professors.

I got to know Gwil very well and he knew exactly what was happening to me at the hands of the paedophiles’ friends; indeed he witnessed much of it. He was frank that he knew many of the people involved, that they were absolute bastards who had abused patients for years and were involved in serious crime. I knew that Gwil’s own family were all employed in the NHS. His mum had been a secretary who knew Dafydd and Lucille Hughes; his brother was an NHS manager at Ysbyty Gwynedd and his sister was a senior manager in the Welsh Ambulance Trust. Gwil told me freely that his brother and sister had virtually no qualifications but had got their jobs through their father, who worked for the Welsh Ambulance Service. Throughout the time that I knew Gwil he supplied me with a wealth of detail about the most serious criminality that he had witnessed at first hand when he worked for Gwynedd County Council, Gwynedd Social Services and the Probation Service. I heard about deaths, sexual assaults and people being fitted up in Court. Some of those involved had played a part in my own case.

Gwil also let me know that he knew what had happened to Patient F.

What I did not realise was that Gwil had extracted money and landed jobs by blackmailing people in the ‘services’ over this wrongdoing.

Gwil was very resentful of his brother and sister who did not have his ability but had been promoted to high levels in the NHS – far higher than they ever should have been – and were earning big salaries, while he was on a studentship. I didn’t realise at first how keen Gwil was to get his hands on huge quantities of dosh.

Because I knew Gwil so well, I let him read many of the documents that my lawyers obtained. We went through them together and after that he said to me ‘do you realise that you could get at least £5 million for this? You have documentary evidence of serious organised crime over 20 years in every agency with which you had contact. You have the names of leading doctors, lawyers, police officers, judges, civil servants and politicians. All of them colluded. You’ll be a millionaire if you play this right.’

I told Gwil that all I wanted after being put through 20 years of hell was to be treated fairly. He kept telling me that I should sue for a great deal of money. Gwil then started to tell me that if I sold my story I’d be famous. One day we were watching TV and he said ‘oh for God’s sake, let me contact the media, you’ll be rich.’ I said that I had no intention of ever going on daytime TV with Phil and Fern or whatever they are called.

Gwil was one of the people who provided a witness statement for my lawyers.

After this, one day Gwil rang me up terrified. He told me that Dyfed Edwards, the leader of Gwynedd County Council, had just called at his house and had threatened him. Gwil told me that Dyfed had told him that the VC of Bangor University would be ‘taken out’, that Gwil and me wouldn’t win this and when we lost, our lives would not be worth living. I took the view that Dyfed Edwards could fuck off.

A few days later Gwil received a visit from some ‘traffic police’, who once in his house produced firearms. Later that week I encountered one of the ‘traffic police’ as well, who also had a gun.

I subsequently received a call from my lawyer. She told me that Gwil had just rung her, had withdrawn his statement and had also told her that if I continued with my case, he would give evidence against me and he had already told the North West Wales NHS Trust this. My lawyer told me not to tell Gwil that she had told me about this. I never did tell him.

I was then told that Gwil had been paid to withdraw his statement and that he had given those we know and love huge quantities of information about me and everyone who was supporting me. I am also aware that at some point he accessed my e mail account and downloaded copies of probably every e mail in my in box. Thousands of them, highly confidential, including info from witnesses.

I didn’t confront Gwil about any of this, I realised that he was very dangerous and was best avoided. I began receiving info that Gwil was trying to find out where I was living – I had moved house at this point – and had been supplying those we know and love with details regarding my whereabouts, which was why people with guns and people who tried to run me off the road at speed knew where I would be.

Over the next few weeks I received e mails from Gwil asking me why I wouldn’t contact him, telling me that he was suicidal and desperately needed my help etc. I ignored them. I never saw him again.

I later discovered that Gwil had established a fraudulent charity with some associates, after dropping out of his PhD.

So imagine my surprise when I learned recently that Gwil was back at Bangor University, registered for a PhD and working as a lecturer in the School of Education no less. Furthermore, his PhD is funded by the Office of the Welsh Language Commissioner – one Meri Huws! So who funded Gwil’s first PhD studentship, the one which he strung out for years and then walked away from? The Welsh Language Board. The Chair of which when Gwil was awarded the studentship was one Meri Huws!

But Gwil has a mountain of shit on Meri haven’t you Gwil?

Gwil had even more shit on Meri once he read my documents!

Gwil, now that you have returned to the thoroughly rotten fold from which you strayed when you thought that I was going to bag millions and it might be worth being friends with me, perhaps you would like to come clean about the massive amounts of serious crime that you witnessed. Including that on the part of your mother and father as well as your brother and sister.

As well as that involving the old man whom you told me that your sister ran over and killed in Bontnewydd when she was 17 and driving illegally. Not that she ever was charged because of that helpful member of your family who was ‘high up in the Courts’.

Gwil told me and other people that he is a distant relative of Huw Daniel. Not that Gwil had a good word to say for Huw Daniel, according to Gwil, the whole family hated Daniel. On one occasion when I was discussing Huw Daniel’s corruption with Gwil, I asked Gwil if Daniel was in the pay of drug barons. Gwil cheerily said ‘no, he’s frightened of them, they kill judges as well, he wouldn’t dare mess with them in any way.’

Uncle Huw just banged up the victims of a sex trafficking gang!

If Gwil is busy chuckling away because he has all those e mails of mine and is ready to sell them to those we know and love – at a price of course – I’ll remind him of that laptop that he sold me before he went over to the Dark Side. Gwil was always flogging his second-hand stuff to me because he liked New. He flogged me an ancient laptop because he wanted a flashy new one.

Gwil forgot to clean his old laptop up once he’d pocketed my dosh. When I realised how fucking dangerous he was, I retrieved the info from his old laptop.

I’ve got the lot Gwil. All the names of those on the rent boy scene in north Wales, Chester and Cardiff. Your contacts, the Top Docs, the lawyers, the BBC and the celeb crowd, the sportsmen, all the closet gays, the whole lot. Furthermore I’ve got all the interviews that you did for the Liverpool Prison project as well. Admissions and details of the most serious crime and corruption in the Prison Service…

By the way Gwil, you still owe me £4000 quid. All that dosh that sustained you when you were too ill to work but unbeknown to me were still able to go clubbing in Chester and Cardiff. You also owe John and Della Fazey £1000. Remember that? The time that they paid your rent arrears when your old muckers at Gwynedd County Council were going to evict you?

I’ll say that for the paedophiles’ friends, they might have all been busy uniting in their attempts to kill me, but they fight tooth and nail among themselves non-stop and there’s no loyalty there. Gwil did a corrupt deal with Coleg Menai which resulted in Helen Owen, a senior manager at Coleg Menai, promising him a job before it was even advertised. Only Helen stabbed him in the back and gave the job to a Pathetic Shark who was working in the School of Healthcare Sciences, Angharad Roberts. Angharad didn’t have any of the qualifications or experience needed but Angharad had much more important things to offer. Angharad’s father was a senior police officer in North Wales; Angharad’s father had also told her to join the right choir, because the man who was a dead cert to be the next Principal of Group Coleg Llandrillo was a member of the choir and Angharad had to make friends with him. Angharad followed all the orders of the Top Cop. She did get the job and was subsequently photographed being congratulated on her outstanding work for Welsh Medium Education by Leighton Andrews, the Welsh Gov’t Education Minister. It was a close thing though, because Ian Rees, the man with whom Angharad made friends in the choir in order to get the job, didn’t become Principal of Coleg Llandrillo. That shook everyone up. But luckily there was so much Llygredd and Nepotiaeth in the system that Angharad still got her job. Which had also been promised to Gwil.

Gwil felt doubly sore because he is a relative of Ann Beynon, who is married to Leighton Andrews…

Gwil was fuming, absolutely fuming. So he then went cap in hand to that old war horse Meri who came up trumps… With her CV Meri is probably being blackmailed constantly.

Why Gwil has been foolish enough to advertise himself on BBC News Wales I cannot fathom. It is not something that any sensible person would do who has been involved with what Gwil has. But then these are a bunch of gangsters who have got away with everything for decades, they feel 100% immune…

By the way Gwil, after you put my life in danger, I took delivery of thousands more documents with many more names. Because you haven’t seen those documents, you don’t know who’s names are on there do you, so you won’t have been able to warn them all…

It’s a Rat Trap Gwil…

Newsflash: After completing this post, I noticed that a big NHS scandal had broken in south Wales. Twenty cases of babies dying and six stillbirths are being investigated by Cwm Taf Health Board. The Board confirmed it was looking at 43 cases with “adverse outcomes” over more than two years from the start of 2016. One Professor Angela Hopkins, the interim Director of Nursing for Cwm Taf, is the senior NHS manager dealing with the media. She stated that ‘We want to offer families our commitment to providing a safe service going forward’.

I know Angela Hopkins. She was the Director of Nursing for the NW Wales NHS Trust, when I was repeatedly threatened, assaulted and wrongfully arrested by the Angels and other staff of that Trust. Hopkins was one of those who wrote me rude insulting letters and refused to investigate. When Edwina Hart – who was given full details by me of Hopkins’s misconduct – abolished the NW Wales NHS Trust, Hopkins disappeared. I presumed that her services had been quietly dispensed with. Silly me. Hopkins had been given even more senior roles in south Wales. After a disaster down there, Hopkins reappeared in north Wales and was given a Chair at Bangor University. Angela, the semi-literate lying bitch, was now Professor Hopkins! When disaster hit Angela’s turf – yet again – Angela announced her retirement. But Angela didn’t retire. She formed herself into a Management Consultancy and flogged her services to the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, which was by then in special measures because of the problems which Hopkins had concealed when she was Director of Nursing for the NW Wales NHS Trust. Problems in the mental health services and maternity services. Which led to patients dying.

So Angela returned to south Wales after that. And now at least 26 babies have died. As ever Angela is offering her commitment to a safe service going forward. Meanwhile, evidence of dangerous staff and patient harm/deaths will be destroyed and witnesses will be intimidated. No matter how much Angela offers her commitment going forward, patients will be personally met with extreme aggression and hostility and there will be no resolution. It will be blamed on them. It was their hostility that was the problem. Or their lack of trust. Or their complaints. Somehow, it will be the patients’ fault.

Angela has conceded that there is a ‘staff shortage’ at Cwm Taf. There was one in north Wales as well, because no-one wants to work for Angela. In north Wales at least two Angels killed themselves when Angela was running the shop at the NW Wales Trust. Both Angels left suicide notes naming senior managers and Angels who had destroyed their lives. One Angel in his suicide note – he was a male midwife at Ysbyty Gwynedd – said that such terrible things were happening at the hospital that no-one would ever believe it. At the time, Angela’s boss was CEO Martin Jones.

Martin is now the man responsible for investigations across the whole of the Wales NHS. Martin was the man who destroyed CCTV footage of an Angel screaming abuse at me, refusing to treat me and threatening me. Martin had me unlawfully arrested repeatedly.

Twenty six dead babies. And it’s Martin and Angela in charge once more.

The Cwm Taf Health Board covers 300,000 people living in the south Wales valleys, with maternity services at Prince Charles Hospital in Merthyr Tydfil and the Royal Glamorgan Hospital in Llantrisant.

One of my friends who lives near Merthyr had her own baby down there about six years ago. She told me that all the mothers were telling each other to avoid one of the Cwm Taf hospitals for their births. Because it was dangerous and women had been mistreated there, but the Top Doctors were denying that there was a problem. So someone obviously decided to employ Angela in the face of those mothers warning each other…

It will have happened when this man was Health Minister:

Mark Drakeford - National Assembly for Wales.jpg

When he was a social worker his colleagues ran a paedophile ring; when he worked as an academic at Cardiff University his colleagues concealed organised abuse and patient harm; his 31 year old son was jailed for a violent rape last week. And he’s probably going to be the next FM of Wales.

What price the Well-being of Future Generations Act now suckers?

It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not ‘Arf

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We never found out where the young man had gone.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Here’s Jim:

Professor-JP-Watson

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

Particularly the BMA of course.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Gerard Vaughan was elected FRCS in 1993.

 

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

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

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

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

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

What have you got to say about that then Polly?

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Patrick Jenkin replied:

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

‘We Are Wimmin, We Are Strong.’

Jo Richardson:

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

Anyone for Getting Tough On Dangerous Nutters Who Attack Angels?

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

.

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Here’s where all the action took place:

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

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

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

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

The basis of Richardson’s feminism was among the poorer women of her council ward, and later her constituency of Barking…

Little Nell was most concerned about the Oppressed Wimmin of Barking as well when Little Nell took over the seat from Jo. There was a problem in Barking while all this Wimmin’s Wisdom was present in that constituency. Precisely that the residents of Barking kept voting for the BNP. Another little local difficulty was the hospital in Barking, which had an appalling death rate, particularly among women and newborns. Little Nell mouthed off non-stop about the BNP but she didn’t breathe a word about that lethal hospital killing women in childbirth and their babies. Not even when the scandal hit the press and an investigation was demanded.

The Labour Party never asked themselves why the voters of Barking were so magnetically attracted to the BNP. Not even when the BNP were following a strategy of meeting local people having a hard time and helping them with their housing and benefits problems etc.

Meanwhile…

  • Millie Tant by C-Caudrey on DeviantArt

 

In her maiden speech she [Richardson] supported better pay for primary teachers and nursery teachers.

Not that Richardson was ever concerned for better off women. Teachers certainly don’t enjoy the lifestyles of bankers, but they’re a damn site better off than care workers or Empowered Service Users.

She wanted the nationalisation of banks and insurance companies. She sponsored various domestic violence acts to aid battered wives.

While Jo Richardson and Wimmin’s Aid continued to ignore and freeze out victims of the trafficking gangs across the whole of the UK.

 

Richardson was Chairperson of the Black and Advisory Committee of the Labour Party. She was a member of ASTMS [later the MSF]’ and  ‘to the pleasure of her union’ she was made Labour Spokesperson on Wimmins Rights on the front bench… ‘had there been a Labour gov’t she would quite certainly have been the first minister for womens affairs in Britain – alas that honourable ambition was not to be’.

Well there wasn’t a Labour Gov’t for Jo to be in, the Tories remained in power for years because the Labour Party was full of foolish old hypocritical trouts like Jo Richardson, who did the bidding of highly paid professional people involved with serious organised crime and they sold the victims of the gangs which those white collar criminals were running down the river.

While Jo Richardson sang We Are Wimmin, We Are Strong, this dominated the landscape in north Wales:

 

  • PROJ3CTM4YH3M Urban Exploration | Urbex: Denbigh Lunatic ...
  • PROJ3CTM4YH3M Urban Exploration | Urbex: Denbigh Lunatic ...
  • Denbigh's North Wales hospital put up for sale AGAIN at £2 ...
  • North Wales Hospital, Denbigh - County Asylums

 

 

When Labour finally did get back into power, after Miranda had turned it into a branch of the Conservative Party and given key roles to the paedophiles’ friends, the UK was blessed with a Minister for Wimmin. It was Harriet. Who was succeeded by Baroness Jay of Paddington aka Jim Callaghan’s daughter. Who was succeeded by Patsy Hewitt. Who was succeeded by Tessa Jowell. The only reason we wimmin didn’t get Little Nell to represent our interests was that Miranda made her Minister for Children, after her loyal years of service as Leader of Islington Borough Council, when that Council’s children’s homes were infiltrated by a trafficking gang who murdered some of the children.

 

The Jo Richardson Community School in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham was named in the honour of this ruthless, dishonest, paedophiles’ friend.

 

When I read of what people like Jo Richardson did while mouthing off about helping Wimmin, I am reminded of someone with whom I was friends in north Wales, who had the full Paedophiles’ Friends Experience after he developed mental health problems. It culminating in years of abuse from the Top Doctors, one term of imprisonment on the basis of the perjury of the staff of the Hergest Unit and him watching a number of his friends commit suicide, before he was unlawfully denied all NHS treatment by the Top Docs. He was a pacifist and a kind and gentle person, who, after hearing that yet another Hergest patient had topped themselves or was up in court for ‘attacking an Angel’ would sometimes remark of the paedophile gang ‘you just want someone to break their fucking legs don’t you’. This man moved to Gwynedd in 1979 because of his enthusiasm for climbing. Where had he lived before that? North London. He had been a youth worker in Islington and he walked out of a social work course because he witnessed the neglect and abuse of clients by Haringey Council and told his tutors who ordered him to not report any of it. This man knew Little Nell and Howard Levenson. When he moved to north Wales, he made the mistake of telling a few people what he had witnessed in Islington and Haringey.

 

Now to Dr Oonagh McDonald, the other Labour MP who questioned Dafydd’s mate about abortion. McDonald was born in Stockton-on-Tees, Co Durham, the daughter of Dr HD McDonald, an Irish protestant minister. The family moved to London and she was educated at the Roan School for Girls in Greenwich, East Barnet Grammar School and King’s College London, where Oonagh gained a Master’s in Theology in 1962 and a PhD in 1974. She worked variously as a teacher, lecturer, researcher and management consultant. Oonagh taught philosophy at the Bristol University, 1965-76. D.G.E. Wood was a medical student at Bristol in the late 1960s and many of his network had links with Bristol University. David Hunt, who as a Minister in the Welsh Office and then Secretary of State for Wales spent years colluding with Wood, Dafydd and the gang, studied law at Bristol University in the mid-1960s. Hunt is now a leading light in international law firm DAC Beachcroft, which acts for the MDU. See previous posts.

MacDonald also served as a member of the Financial Services Commission in Gibraltar and was a senior consultant on international regulatory and public policy issues.

McDonald was elected Labour MP for Thurrock in Essex in 1976. She became PPS to the Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Joel – later Lord – Barnett in 1977. Joel Barnett was responsible for devising the Barnett Formula, which was used to assign funding from Westminster to Wales and Scotland. It was accepted by everyone that the Barnett Formula was unfair to Wales and over-generous to Scotland, but despite many conferences and working parties, the dear old Barnett Formula remained firmly in place. McDonald was Opposition Spokesman on Defence, 1981–1983 and then Opposition Spokesman on Treasury and Economic Affairs, 1983-1987, under the Windbag, during those years when the Windbag planned his election campaigns upon the need to ingratiate himself to the Top Doctors and Angels, including those in north Wales committing serious crime.

In 1998, McDonald was given a CBE for services to financial regulation and business. So she received something during the Waterhouse Inquiry for keeping her mouth shut then, even if it wasn’t a peerage.

McDonald is a Director of the British Portfolio Trust, Complaints Commissioner for the London Metal Exchange, ICE Futures and Virt-x and a member of IMF’s Expert Roster. She was previously a Director of the UK FSA (formerly the Securities and Investments Board), a Director of the General Insurance Standards Council, a Director of Skandia Insurance Co Ltd, a Director of the Financial Services Ombudsman Scheme, a Director of the Investors Compensation Scheme and of Scottish Provident (until demutualised and sold to Abbey National in 2001) and a member of the Gibraltar Financial Services Commission. She has undertaken numerous consultancy projects on financial regulation and the development of private pensions for the Asian Development Bank, the IMF, USAID and the British Know-How Fund in Russia, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Brunei and Moldova.

She was Gwilym Gibbon Fellow at Nuffield College, Oxford and wrote The Future of Whitehall, Weidenfeld and Nicolson (1992) and is also the author of Parliament at Work, Methuen (1989) and The Future of Retail Banking in Europe: A View from the Top, with Professor Kevin Keasey, John Wiley & Sons (2002) and numerous research papers for a variety of clients including Deloitte’s and PricewaterhouseCoopers. In 2013, Bloomsbury Academic Press published her book “Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac: Turning the American Dream into a Nightmare”. She is currently a Visiting Fellow, International Institute of Banking & Financial Services, Leeds University. She also edits the Journal of Financial Regulation & Compliance. She has been the Chair of the Fairbanking Mark Assessment Panel for the Fairbanking Foundation since November 2013.

Good to see that a woman who wasn’t capable of challenging Dafydd and a dodgy dangerous abortionist was subsequently given responsibility for controlling the excesses of global capitalism.

 

I noted that in the list of the private hospitals that Patrick Jenkin admitted were carrying out abortions in the late 1970s/early 1980s, not only did the Grosvenor Nuffield in Chester appear, but so did the Nuffield Hospital in Taunton. I knew someone who booked into the Nuffield Hospital in Taunton in about 1974. He had suffered a major stroke many months previously, had regained a bit of movement, but wanted to go into the Nuffield for a couple of weeks to give his wife a rest. Off he trundled and three days later there was the most unholy row. His wife received a phone call from the Top Doctors, maintaining that he had ‘gone mad, was violent’ and that if a solution could not be found to this problem, they would certify him and it would be off to Tone Vale (the asylum near Taunton) for him.

His wife, as well as other members of the family, went straight down to Taunton. They found a very distressed stroke patient who was quite sane but bloody fuming, because he maintained that he had discovered that some of the Angels at the Nuffield in Taunton were running a prostitution racket IN the hospital and were offering sex to patients. The Top Docs gravely explained that they couldn’t have such allegations made tch tch and if the family agreed to take this madman out of the Nuffield – but nonetheless agree to pay for his planned stay in the brothel which had been pre-booked – they would say no more about it. If the dosh and removal of the patient was not agreed to, there were already the Dafydds of Somerset ready and waiting to certify him.

The elderly man returned home, where he was reassured by one of his relatives who had spent years working as a nurse in Taunton and then Bridgwater, that he wasn’t mad, that there was indeed a prostitution racket going on at the Nuffield, it had been going on for some while and was widely known among the medical professionals in the area.

I was only about 12 when all that kicked off but I remember it well Dafydd and unfortunately for you, I inherited rather more of the genetic loading of the angry old boy who wanted to do battle with the Bastards of the Nuffield than the Appeasers.

There was a network across the whole of the UK by that time which continued for years, run by corrupt medical and welfare professionals, who were involved in the sex, drugs and porn trade. I will be blogging more about this soon.

By the way Taunton network – MR RAINEY. The butcher of an orthopaedic surgeon who insulted and brutalised his patients and when he thought that he could get away with it violently assaulted a few of them as well. Absolutely legendary throughout Taunton and Bridgwater and became a millionaire to boot. Not one person dared put a stop to him.

You think that my grandpa caused you problems Top Doctors  – he wasn’t a blogger who had encountered Dafydd… By the way, grandpa freaked the Top Doctors out because he tried to ring the police to report the prostitution racket in the Nuffield. In the same way that I and others repeatedly reported the members of a trafficking gang to the police…

 

Here’s a few Interesting Facts:

Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor aka the Duke of Westminster, a close friend of Carlo’s and the President of the City of Chester Conservative Association when Sir Peter Morrison was MP for Chester, was a Committee Member of the Nuffield Hospitals from 1995 until his death in 2016.

Virginia Bottomley, a former psychiatric social worker who was Minister of Health, 1989-92 and Secretary of State for Health, 1992-95, was a non-executive Director of BUPA, 2007-13. Ginny’s daughter Cecilia is a Top Doctor (Obs and Gynae) who undertakes private work on behalf of BUPA.

Enid Rowlands, who is married to Huw Vaughan Thomas -the Chief Executive of Gwynedd County Council when the kids in the care of Gwynedd were being abused and trafficked to various locations including Dolphin Square (see posts ‘I Know Nuzzing…’ and ‘Are You Local?’) – was/is a member of the Board of BUPA. Enid has also been a member of the GMC; a Trustee of the GMC Pension Scheme; Chair of Victim Support; a member of the North Wales Police Authority; a member of the S4C Authority; Chair of the North Wales Health Authority; Chair of Education and Skills Wales; Chair of the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority. Enid served on the North Wales Health Authority at the same time as did Dr Peter Higson. Peter Higson worked as a clinical psychologist at the North Wales Hospital, then was the manager of that institution. Higson is now Chair of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board. His sister, Ruth Hussey, is the former Chief Medical Officer for Wales. Huw Vaughan Thomas was appointed Auditor General For Wales after his time as Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council. Huw picked up that job when Jeremy Colman, the previous Auditor General for Wales was jailed for child porn offences. See previous posts.

Here’s Enid, lest anyone wishes to perform a citizen’s arrest if they bump into her, because it’s fairly clear that she is in no danger of being apprehended by the North Wales Police:

The President of the Denbighshire branch of the Royal College of Midwives, 1955-75, knew all about the disappearing women and babies. She was Geraldine Mackeson-Sandbach, the daughter of a wealthy landed family in north Wales, who also owned sugar plantations in the West Indies. Geraldine’s son Ian Lawrie Mackeson-Sandbach was appointed the most senior Freemason in north Wales in 1997, just in time for the Waterhouse Inquiry, where he remained until the cover-up was complete and the dust had settled. Ian’s daughter Antoinette Sandbach worked as a barrister in London until the paedophile gang called for reinforcements some ten years ago, whereupon Antoinette felt the pull of hiraeth and returned to Paedophile HQ in north Wales. Within months she had become a Tory AM. Much as Antoinette was dedicated to the welfare of farmers in north Wales, at the first opportunity she bagged a safe Tory Westminster seat in Cheshire, where she remains. See previous posts for details of the adventures of Antoinette, her ancestors and the Causes Close To Their Hearts.

 

Abortion has remained a political hot potato and a focal point for campaigners ever since the Abortion Act of 1967. There have been a number of attempts to legislate to reduce access to abortion as well as to widen access. The arguments used by anti and pro abortionists are very familiar and have remained virtually unchanged for years, as indeed have the identities of a number of those involved in leading the campaigns.

In none of these campaigns has anyone ever drawn upon or even mentioned the grisly lessons of the Top Doctors Of North Wales.

In Jan 1988, the Lib Dem MP David Alton tried to cut the limit for legal abortions to 18 weeks by the introduction of a private members bill but the bill ran out of time. Alton’s bill caused much debate and mobilisation of campaigners. At the time, I was asked by a Top Doctor at the Royal Free what I thought about David Alton’s attempt to change the law. I told him that I that David Alton may have very genuine feelings on the matter but that I suspected that he did not realise just how terrible the situations of some women were. I was thinking of some of the victims of Dafydd et al in north Wales at the time, but I didn’t say that. I was told by the Top Doctor that the problem with making it easier to access abortion was that ‘callous women’ would ‘take advantage’ of it.

Callous women do exist, indeed they were appointed as Wimmin’s Ministers in Parliament repeatedly, but there was no-one so callous as those Top Docs in north Wales, who while running a trafficking gang unlawfully prevented women from accessing NHS abortions and forced them into the hands of a dangerous abortionist in England who demanded money. I know for a fact that the Royal Free Top Doc who pompoused away to me knew about Dafydd and the gang in north Wales and the situation re access to abortion. Furthermore, the Royal Free was one of the institutions which was providing a big umbrella for Dafydd.

Duncan Orme, when he was the Students’ Union Welfare Officer at UCNW in the mid-1980s concealed the members of the trafficking gang who was occupying the Student Health Centre as well as the harm to students which they inflicted and was rewarded for this with a place on the graduate trainee programme for NHS managers – at the Royal Free (see post ‘I Predict A Riot’). When I was at UCNW, Liz Stables, the Angel who was facilitating the trafficking gang in UCNW, told me that a Bangor student had been offered a place to read medicine at the Royal Free.

The Mr Big who was the link between Bangor University and the London Medical Schools was Lord Brian Flowers, a nuclear physicist who held a number of very senior posts at London University, including that of VC. Brian Flowers concealed en masse research fraud, patient harm and the trafficking gangs who were operating in the London hospitals. Flowers later served as the VC of Manchester University. Flowers was originally from Swansea and remained loyal to his old muckers in Wales. See previous posts.

I accept that there are people who genuinely feel that abortion is wrong and I don’t think that they should be shouted down or have their views dismissed on the grounds that they are a bunch of old misogynists, because not all of them are. However, the Top Doctors are so flawed and have so grossly abused their positions, that I suggest that decisions regarding abortion, at least early abortion, should be taken right out of their hands. The most sensible thing would be to make early abortion available on demand and then for someone to have a long hard think about how the messy and grim realities of late abortion or abortions on very young, vulnerable or uncertain women are addressed, because these decisions cannot be left solely in the hands of such an abusive profession.

 

Anti-abortionists were scuppered yet again in an attempt to achieve a significant tightening of the law in June 1990; not only that, but their attempt backfired due to a complex voting system and resulted in a further liberalising of the law. This was achieved solely by the casting vote of then Deputy Speaker, Sir Paul Dean, which was seen as probably the most significant act of his political career. Sir Paul Dean was not a man whom one would have expected to be particularly sympathetic to liberalising abortion.

Paul Dean was the Tory MP for Woodspring (formerly north Somerset), 1964-92. North Somerset was the neck of the woods from which D.G.E. Wood came; his father was a Top Doc in the Bristol/north Somerset area. Dean was succeeded as the Tory MP for that seat by the right wing tosser of a Top Doc, Liam Fox (see previous posts).

From 1982 until his retirement, Dean served as Deputy Speaker, first under George Thomas, then under Bernard Weatherill. George Thomas sexually assaulted children and young people for years, throughout his whole career. This was widely known in Parliament, to the police and in south Wales, where Thomas was a high profile Labour MP and a leading light in the Methodist Church. A great many people pushed out a great many boats to protect George Thomas and the Top Docs of Wales pushed out more boats than most. Paul Dean knew that Thomas was molesting children, as did Bernard Weatherill.

Dean served as Second Deputy Chairman of Ways and Means, 1982-87 and First Deputy Chairman of Ways and Means, 1987-92. He was preceded by Ernest Armstrong in both posts and was also preceded by Ernest Armstrong as Deputy Speaker. Ernest Armstrong was the Labour MP for North West Durham, 1964-87, who in his capacity as an MP as well as previously when a Sunderland Councillor, had concealed the paedophile ring in the north east of England, which was linked to the ring in north Wales and supplied both staff and children to the gang in north Wales/Cheshire. It was Ernest Armstrong who did Miranda so many favours when Miranda went after his seat at Sedgefield and then built his stronghold in the north east. Ernest Armstrong’s daughter Hilary succeeded him as MP for North West Durham. Hilary Armstrong became one of Miranda’s inner circle (see post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part III’).

Paul Dean was born in Nantwich, Cheshire, into a family who owned farms in Cheshire and north Wales. He was educated at Ellesmere College, Shropshire and Exeter College, Oxford. At Oxford, Dean was President of Conservative Association and also the Oxford Carlton Club. He served with Welsh Guards during WWII, but after the war he abandoned family farms and became  tutor at Swinton Conservative College in north Yorkshire. Paul Dean then worked in the Research Dept of Conservative Central Office, 1957-64. At the time, that Dept was known to be dominated by a number of senior staff who propositioned boys for sex. When Matthew Parris worked there just a few years later, he found that holidays in Italy were being organised by the staff of that Dept at a place known as the Villa of Vice or the Villa of Shame, where ‘willing boys’ were supplied for parties. See previous posts.

Paul Dean was a junior Minister in the DHSS, 1970-74. After the Tories’ election victory in 1970, Dean was made junior Minister for social security. He was a parsimonious minister, opposing the abolition of tax on pensioners earning less than £2,000 a year. He proudly introduced the 1973 Social Security Act and attacked Barbara Castle for ‘vicious political vandalism’ when, on Labour’s return to office the following year, she delayed implementation of parts of it. Dean worked under Secretary of State Sir Keith Joseph, the MP for Leeds North East, 1956-87. Joseph’s constituency was at the heart of Jimmy Savile and Police Corruption Country and Joseph spent his whole career concealing organised abuse. It was Keith Joseph who took on as his adviser for children in care Barbara Kahan, a social worker who was married to Top Doctor Vladimir Kahan. Kahan colluded with organised abuse as did her husband. Kahan had been the manager of a number of social workers who were later identified as paedophiles, including Louis Minster. Once she became a Gov’t adviser, she worked with many more social workers, teachers and academics who were using their work as a front for child abuse. See post ‘Always On The Side Of The Children’.

There is no way that Barbara and Vladimir Kahan and Keith Joseph did not know about Dafydd.

When we were undergrads, Brown and I wrote to Keith Joseoh about student finance. We wrote separately and from our university addresses. When Joseph replied – he wrote quite a rude reply, the same one to both of us – he made it clear that he knew that Brown and me were friends and also that we both came from Bridgwater in Somerset. We had not mentioned this in our letters.

Keith Joseph was actually the architect of Thatcherism. Unlike Thatch, he was intelligent enough to understand it, but he blew his chances at becoming Tory leader when he made a speech warning that the lower orders were breeding like rabbits and Something Had To Be Done.

The outcome of that rather rash speech was this:

 

Paul Dean made someone happy, because he was given a knighthood in 1985, the year in which the threats to Brown and me from the Top Docs really began to escalate and which my documents show was the year that the Welsh Office busied themselves with the beginning of their plan to blow me out of the water. In 1985 Mary Wynch won her appeal to the Master Of The Rolls and made legal history by suing Dafydd, thus receiving coverage in the London-based media. Then Alison Taylor refused to shut up.

In 1993, after my career in medical research had been ruined and the media careers of another two witnesses had also been destroyed, Sir Paul Dean became Baron Dean of Harptree of Wedmore in the County of Somerset. I don’t know what Dean’s connection to Wedmore was, but Gary Glitter lived at Wedmore for quite some time before he ended up in prison in Bristol for child porn offences. Professor Robert Owen, a surgeon from Liverpool who doubled up as the Medical Ombudsman for the Welsh Office and was Dafydd’s mate who concealed Dafydd’s crimes (see post ‘In Memoriam – Professor Robert Owen’) had a daughter who lived at Shapwick, a village on the Somerset levels not far from Wedmore. Ian Dunbar, the tame Prison Service Governor who was called in by the bent Home Secretary Douglas Hurd after the 1989 riots at Risley Remand Centre to try and get a rapidly unravelling situation back under control, was based in the south west and lived on the Somerset levels. See post ‘Include Me Out’ and other posts.

After the Risley Riots, there were frank admissions, even from the Home Office, that conditions at Risley were completely unacceptable. The women’s wing was shut down and major changes to the institution did follow. Michael Mansfield emerged as the hero of the hour when he represented some of the rioters, who were in Risley after being charged with serious crime. At no point did anyone mention that the hospital wing of Risley was full – and had been for years – of kids in care from north Wales and psych patients of Dafydd and it was they who were repeatedly found dead after ‘committing suicide by hanging’. See post ‘Include Me Out’. The patients whom I knew who had been in Risley all said ‘it’s full of murderers there, I was terrified’. It was Michael Mansfield’s clients that they were terrified of. There were kids from the north Wales children’s homes as young as their early teens in Risley and because they were on remand, they had not been convicted of any offence. That contingent of the Risley population were nearly always transferred to Denbigh, where once they had been sectioned for a year, the charges against them were dropped. Some of them were never seen again and most of the others died soon afterwards. Michael Mansfield’s clients went on to be found guilty as charged and received long prison sentences. None of this received any press coverage.

Another person who lived on the Somerset levels was a man who taught me at school, Ray Stanlake. I have been told that Stanlake was in touch with Dafydd and the gang…

 

Paul Dean, who was fairly obviously at the centre of many cesspits, was a Director of Charterhouse Pensions and the brewers Watney-Mann and Truman; a consultant to Grand Metropolitan and Antony Gibbs Pension Services; a Governor of BUPA and the Deputy Chairman of the PR firm Roward Panton. Paul Dean was on the governing body of the Church in Wales. Some of whose clergyman were fully on board with Dafydd et al.

Paul Dean’s rot went back a long way. From the outset, he was a supporter of Edward Heath, who was then Leader of the Opposition In 1969, Dean became Heath’s Deputy Spokesman on social security. Throughout his leadership of the Tory Party, Heath colluded with Dafydd et al. Dean was a big fan of private health and pension schemes.

 

One additional note about Paul Dean and his casting vote which accidentally liberalised abortion. It only happened because the anti-abortionists had tried to get the legislation that they wanted by the use of a tied vote on an amendment on the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill. Only days previously there had been a major Commons row over the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill, which people like Enoch Powell were hoping to use to outlaw research on embryos. One MP became very, very angry during the debate, because he had lost two children to an hereditary problem and knew that a third child would die as well. He got so angry that he banged his fist on a chair and damaged the chair. That MP was Dafydd Wigley. He was the Plaid MP for Caernarfon at the time and he knew that the trafficking gang operating under his nose had killed witnesses, including my house mate Anne. Dafydd Wigley really wanted the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill to pass.

So how did you persuade Paul Dean to use his casting vote to support you then Lord Wigley? Anything to do with that letter that I wrote you providing details of my experiences at the hands of Dafydd et al, to which you wrote me a very nice reply, saying that if there was anything that you could do at a Parliamentary level you would? Then when the intimidation of me became even worse, I wrote to you again. I didn’t hear back.

Ooh that was in about 1990 wasn’t it??

Yma O Hyd!

 

Now here’s someone else who was fully aware of the crimes of Dafydd and all related gangs who has successfully gone under the radar: Alan Jinkinson.

Alan Raymond Jinkinson is a trade unionist who was born in Sheffield. Jinkinson was Deputy General Secretary of NALGO, 1983-90; General Secretary of NALGO, 1990-93; General Secretary of UNISON, 1993-96, preceding the very good friend of the paedophiles, Rodney Bickerstaffe (see post ‘A Very COHSE Relationship With Some Very Nasty People’).

NALGO was the union which represented huge numbers of local gov’t employees, including many who staffed and managed children’s homes and were named as abusers or colluding with abuse. Some NALGO reps were named in abuse scandals, including one rep in north Wales/Cheshire. It was accepted that the NALGO rep in north Wales had abused children in care, so the solution to this was to allow him to take early retirement. He was a bit worried that he wouldn’t be able to begin drawing his pension early as well, but a letter from a helpful psychiatrist sorted that and the member of Dafydd’s gang was able to go off into the sunset into a comfortable early retirement avoiding any criminal charges.

There was one social worker in north Wales whom NALGO refused to support, although she was a fully paid up member – Alison Taylor. NALGO washed their hands of Alison and provided no support when Gwynedd County Council sacked her in Nov 1987, after informally suspending her in Dec 1986. In Dec 1986, Dafydd had me unlawfully arrested and imprisoned in the North Wales Hospital Denbigh and two/three days later Ollie Brooke, the Prof of Paediatrics at St George’s Hospital Medical School was imprisoned for child porn offences. Ollie’s gang had direct links to Dafydd and Lucille.

Alan Jinkson became the General Secretary of the newly merged UNISON on 1 July 1993. My trial at Bangor Magistrates Court for ‘staring at a social worker in Safeways’ took place in July 1993. It was planned to be a trial for screaming and swearing at her, putting her ‘in fear of immediate violence’, but once she was in the witness box, she started crying and admitted that she had lied to the police. The social worker concerned, Jackie Brandt, was a member of Dafydd and Lucille’s gang and had previously unlawfully detained me in Ysbyty Gwynedd. See post ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’. No complaints of mine against Brandt were ever investigated and neither was her perjury. I had to cough up £60 for looking at her in a supermarket.

Stop The Cuts!

 

Jinkinson stood for the Labour Party in the Orpington by-election, 1962. A supporter of Hugh Gaitskill, Jinkinson he attacked Eric Lubbock – a lifelong paedophiles’ friend himself (see previous posts) – the Liberal Party candidate for supporting unilateral nuclear disarmament. Lubbock won the seat, while Jinkinson took third place with 12.4% of the vote, losing his deposit.

A wonderful article about Jinkinson was published in the Indie on 29 Oct 1992. Here are some extracts:

Alan Jinkinson has rapidly become the most powerful public sector trade unionist in Britain…next year he is due to become head of the new Unison organisation of 1.4 million public sector workers, the largest union in the country.

Note to Gov’ts of all colours: There’s 1.4 million of us, many of us with the dirt on the health and social care services…

Political posturing is not in the character of Mr Jinkinson, who carefully weighs up each comment before making it, avoiding remarks that will upset any faction within the union, or which can be interpreted as favouring militancy. This balancing act is on display when he stresses that a public sector pay freeze, or award at less than the rate of inflation, would be met by a ‘measured response’, while hinting that some of the more militant members of the union could become difficult to restrain from taking strong action.

FINGS BREAK…

 … concedes that stringent public sector pay control is a very real possibility. ‘There appears to be a conspiracy between the bosses and the Government to attack public sector pay over the next 12 months…clearly angered by some of the rumours that came out of Conservative Party conference. ‘Allegedly, an unnamed minister said that it would be nice to have a Nalgo strike. That is provocative, irresponsible and does nothing for good industrial relations.’ He stresses that Nalgo and the other public service unions would respond with restraint. ‘That kind of view will not force Nalgo or anyone else out on to the streets.’
The only people forced onto the streets were the kids in care and Empowered Service Users.

Nalgo and the other leading public sector unions Nupe and Cohse have been in merger discussions for several years…the new union Unison will be in place next July. Mr Jinkinson is to be the general secretary until early 1996, when Rodney Bickerstaffe, currently of Nupe, is expected to take over.

The General Secretary of COHSE was David Williams, who trained as an Angel at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh in the Dark Ages. See post ‘A Very COHSE Relationship With Some Very Nasty People’.

…stressed that the unions would not co-operate in any exercise designed to cut the real wages of public services staff… the truth is that public sector workers have been taking more than their share of the pain for some years now.

Duw it’s hard. When we get caught abusing the kids in our care we have to get Dafydd to provide us with a letter to enable us to draw our pension early.

Take the NHS trust hospitals as an example. The pay of senior managers has increased enormously, in contrast to the pay of clerical and administration workers, which has fallen in net earnings by about 5.2 per cent. The best part of 100,000 of these workers are paid below the European Community minimum decency threshold of £207 per week.

Alan Jinkinson could have brought down those overpaid Trust senior managers overnight – including those in north Wales who were running a trafficking gang – if he’d blown the whistle on their criminality, corruption and concealment of patient harm and deaths. But he didn’t because some of his members were responsible.

‘The response of our members to pay policy will very much depend on that key word ‘fairness’. The fairer any policy is perceived to be the more measured any response will be. There are about 6 million in the public sector workforce, some of these covered by review bodies. If it was perceived that those covered by review bodies were treated better, the reaction would be very hostile indeed.

Note to Gov’t: We can muster 6 million at a push… Whatever would happen if Fings Started To Break?

Those not covered in the NHS already need an increase of 25 per cent to bring them up to comparative levels.

Don’t make me fucking laugh. In regions like north Wales, public service workers were in clover.

Mr Jinkinson does not see it as his role to help the Government in bringing about its revolution in public sector culture. ‘I don’t like CCT (compulsory competitive tendering), or all the talk about an ‘enabling’ local authority. We’ve got these citizen’s charters by the sackful, but they will not succeed until the public sector workforce is well-paid, well-managed and well-trained.

The sackfuls of Citizen’s Charters produced by John Major were indeed worthless, because the public service workers knew that they could abuse their positions with impunity. After all, they knew where the bodies were buried and Fings Break.

As well as merging into one giant union, the public service unions are also coping with the transfer of their members away from public employers into the private sector; whether into an NHS trust, a private company winning service contracts…Even within the local authority sector there is a strong move away from national pay bargaining towards local negotiation. According to Mr Jinkinson, such changes, though they pose threats, also provide opportunities.

Here comes the deal with New Public Management and neoliberalism… Ooh our members won’t be unemployed after all, they will be encouraged to form themselves into companies and consultancies,  where they will be commissioned by their former employers in the NHS and local authorities to ‘deliver services’ to their previous ‘client groups’ and they will continue to abuse them exactly as before. With the added bonus that those being abused will be told that they are Empowered and Have A Choice.

‘It has been an inevitable stimulus to Nalgo to adjust its delivery of services to its members. One or two people join a trade union for political reasons, but for most people it is a practical question of the value of the benefits at the workplace. We have had to adjust our ways of delivering services and train many hundreds of stewards that are now involved in local bargaining.

Told you so. The paedophiles’ managers and union reps made damn sure that the paedophiles picked up the new contracts.

The trend is towards devolution of provision of support services to district level. Unison is a catalyst to an even more radical approach to service delivery, which will be member-centred, a member-led union, serving all, from the highest-paid manager to the lowest-paid individual.’

Er, hasn’t really worked out that way has it?

One challenge facing Unison is persuading blue-collar and white-collar workers that they have a shared outlook. Tension between Nalgo members and other public sector workers has heightened in recent years as managers have overseen the contracting out of manual work.

The bastards have turned on each other in their pursuit of filthy lucre.

Now the boot is on the other foot, with Nalgo members facing commercial competition for their own jobs.

SCRAAAAP!!!!

Mr Jinkinson is adamant that the contracting out of work must not be used as a means of reducing rates of pay, and that members should resist pay levels being cut to make tender bids more competitive. ‘We say to our branches, ‘talk to your employers, get them to open their books, get into a rational dialogue, and get the best deal available, which is also the best deal for service quality and the local community.’

Fings Break…

We want to encourage the authorities to put in the most competitive bids, but there shouldn’t be cuts in pay to bring this about.’

The Empowered Service Users can take the hit, not Our Members.

Even though the change in public service culture is bitterly resented and opposed by the public sector unions, they are making parallel changes. Local authorities are recognising that many of their powers have gone, so they adopt a new role of community voice and vehicle for lobbying.

They gangs run the charidees, the ‘Service User Involvement Groups’, the Advocacy Associations…

Similarly, Mr Jinkinson sees Unison as a means of bringing about broader change in society.

I’m still waiting Alan.

He explained: ‘A union of 1.4 million people will have enormous influence in society at large, including the European Community, as a driving force for a return to a public sector culture, which very many members of the public now yearn for…

Their wishes for a genuine change in culture were ignored because it was Jinkinson who wielded power over Gov’ts, not the people in the receiving end of the shite, abusive, neglectful public services.

What is needed is increased public spending on housing, schools, sewers, and so on. What we don’t need is to bear down on public sector spending. What is missing in the economy is that indefinable thing called ‘confidence’. Cuts in public spending will bring a further twist to the deflationary spiral, and that is the opposite to what the economy needs at the present time.’

There never were substantial Cuts until very recently, as a result of the aftermath of the financial crisis in 2008. The Empowered Service Users saw no improvement in their services, because the services were run for the benefit of Jinkison’s members, not the Empowered Service Users. Any public sector workers that challenged the scam were sacked and like Alison Taylor, found that Mr Jinkinson and his mates were not in the least bit interested in their plight.

 

While I was reading some old political almanacs recently, I was reminded of a name from the past, which to my shame I had completely forgotten about, that of David Penhaligon. David Penhaligon was the Liberal MP for Truro, who was elected in 1974. Not only did Penhaligon know all about the doings of Jeremy Thorpe, the Liberal MP for North Devon and Liberal Party leader, but when Jeremy became a laughing stock following that rigged trial in 1979 after he was charged with conspiracy to murder his former gay lover Norman Scott and the Liberals dissolved into utter confusion but as ever kept their hopes up, David Penhaligon was considered to be likely to be their next leader. The thing that stopped him was being involved in a most unfortunate car accident which killed him. On Dec 22, 1986. Approx one week after Ollie Brooke went to prison and about 10 days after Dafydd had me unlawfully arrested and imprisoned.

David Penhaligon was brought up in Truro. He attended Truro School, where he knew musician Roger Taylor of Queen and then Cornwall Technical College. Penhaligon worked for Holman Brothers in Camborne as a research and development engineer working on rock drilling. By 1973 he had qualified as a Chartered Mechanical Engineer; he also took over from his father a sub-post office in Chacewater from 1967 (after his marriage in 1968 to Annette Lidgey, she ran the business). His Liberal activities led to some work in local broadcasting.

Penhaligon’s decision to join the Liberal Party was inspired in 1963 when, aged 19, he was an important witness to a murder case. His evidence, which supported the case of the defendant Dennis Whitty, was not enough to prevent him from being convicted and hanged. Penhaligon was appalled by capital punishment. He led the Truro Young Liberals and built up the local party (which had been the weakest in Cornwall) into one of the strongest; he was the chair of the Cornish Young Liberals, 1966-68. However he was not selected as Liberal candidate for Truro in the 1966 General Election (nor for any other seat) and he was also rejected for Falmouth and Camborne in 1968 apparently because his strong Cornish accent was thought unattractive.

By the mid-1980s, everyone loved David Penhaligon’s Cornish accent, what with Old Etonians, City Slickers and cousins and friends of Lilibet having taken quite a battering as a result of Jeremy Thorpe’s activities.

 

 

In the 1970 General Election, Penhaligon fought the Devon constituency of Totnes, when the previous candidate Paul Tyler transferred to Bodmin. Bodmin had previously been held by Peter Bessell for the Liberals. Bessell was a good mate of Thorpe’s and it was Bessell who gave evidence at Thorpe’s 1979 trial that Thorpe had openly discussed killing Norman Scott and the ways in which that could be done. During the trial, the famously biased Presiding judge, Joseph Cantley, trashed Bessell, Norman, Thorpe’s co-defendants and Andrew Newton, the man who openly admitted that he had been hired to kill Norman. The only person who could be believed was Jeremy and that was because he was married to Lilibet’s cousin and had shagged both Princess Margaret and Lord Snowdon, although that snippet wasn’t mentioned.

Bessell emigrated to California in 1974 and died there in 1985. David Penhaligon was one of the west country Liberals who would have known the full details re Jeremy and Norman. It was widely known that Norman was being threatened, harassed, robbed and beaten up when he lived in Devon and that Jeremy was behind it. Norman openly talked about his affair with Jeremy and how Jeremy had dumped him and had behaved appallingly ever since.

Justice Cantley might have told the world that Norman was a fantasist but at the time of Jeremy’s trial, I knew two people in Somerset who had Seen The Photos that Norman had of him and Jeremy… One of those people was a travelling salesman who flogged Kleeneze products no less and the other one was the baker from Stogursey, Mr Lovell. After Jeremy was acquitted, Mr Lovell was convinced that someone would have another go at bumping Norman off. To the amazement of many people, Norman remained alive. However Mr Lovell’s wife didn’t. Mr Lovell’s wife suffered from depression and had been a patient at Tone Vale. Tone Vale colluded with organised abuse, although not to the same extent as Dafydd and Denbigh. Mr Lovell’s wife was declared much improved and came home from Tone Vale. So imagine how shocked everyone was when many months later, Mr Lovell came home to find that she had hanged herself. No-one asked any questions, it was all a bit ‘cor poor old Mr Lovell, his wife must have been hiding how bad she felt’.

Mr Lovell had a teenage son and I think that it might have been him who found his mum’s body first. Mr Lovell’s son wanted to go in the Army and he was an admirer from a distance of Brown’s dad, because he once called at the house when Col Brown was in uniform and it wowed him. He had been in the Army cadets, seemed to get over his mum’s death but had the most terrible shock when he was rejected by the Army when he left school. He worked in a factory in Bridgwater instead. I am fairly sure that a few years later, he was found dead as well. Ooh well, he got it from his mum didn’t he…

No-one in the west country disbelieved Norman, they all knew that Jeremy was as guilty as they come. David Penhaligon will have known as well and he’ll have known many more people than I did who were witnesses to Jeremy’s shenanigans.

 

In 1970, Penhaligon polled poorly in the context of an election in which the party as a whole suffered. However, Penhaligon had acquired useful experience of fighting election campaigns and picked up additional tips from Wallace Lawler’s practices in inner-city Birmingham. David Penhaligon wasn’t a complete hayseed then.

In 1971 Penhaligon was easily selected as candidate for Truro, a seat which did not look an easier prospect than Totnes. This gave him three years in which to get his name known and meet his prospective constituents and when the election came in Feb 1974 he won nearly 21,000 votes and cut the majority of the sitting Tory MP to 2,561. Truro became the fourth ‘target’ constituency for the Liberals for the next election – which would take place within months because of the inconclusive outcome in February.

Penhaligon was readopted and worked on trying to persuade the remaining Labour voters in the seat to back him. In the Oct 1974 election, he was elected with a majority of 464 votes – the only Liberal gain of that election. In Parliament he swiftly won a reputation for humorous speeches, urging a national minimum wage and increased state pensions. He voted for fellow Cornish MP John Pardoe over David Steel in the Liberal leadership election of 1976. John Pardoe’s brother lived in the village where I spent my teenage years and Brown and I used to work on his farm in the summer holiday. See previous posts.

Penhaligon was hard to place in conventional political terms: he changed his mind over capital punishment, initially voting against in December 1974, but supporting it in December 1975. Which sort of reminds me of that old Python joke in ‘Election Special’: ‘A little pink pussycat has taken Barrow-in-Furness, that’s a gain from the Liberals there’.

Although frequently speaking on national issues, it was clear that Penhaligon’s main concern was local. He became known in particular for defending Cornish tin mining and local fishing fleets.

When the Lib-Lab pact was first mooted in March 1977, Penhaligon was initially opposed and spoke against it. He later came round and told the Liberal Assembly in September 1977 that it had achieved an ‘economic revolution’. I missed that particular revolution. At a special Assembly in January 1978 Penhaligon was a star speaker in persuading the delegates representing Liberal members to continue the pact. The pact allowed the Liberals to influence Gov’t legislation.

Part of Penhaligon’s support for the Lib-Lab pact was his fear that an early general election would result in a poor performance for the Liberals, and his own seat might be vulnerable. In October 1978 after the pact had lapsed, he explained that “Turkeys don’t volunteer for Christmas!”. The scandal over Jeremy Thorpe – who was charged with conspiracy to murder in August 1978 – was a matter of particular concern and Penhaligon urged Thorpe to stand down and the Liberal Party not to endorse him. When Thorpe did seek re-election, Penhaligon refused to help his campaign. Despite his narrow majority and the belief that he was the most vulnerable of the Liberal MPs, Penhaligon kept his seat with a much larger majority (8,708) in the 1979 General Election.

The Lib-Lab pact involved two desperate parties with much to hide doing a great deal of wheeling and dealing while both trying to shaft each other. At the same time, no-one trusted Jeremy, who was known to be capable of striking a bargain with anyone at all in his desperation to gain power, as he had when he almost joined Ted Heath’s Gov’t some years previously.

After the bomb exploded and Jeremy was arrested and charged, some months before his trial, an alternative newspaper in Rochdale printed allegations that Cyril Smith, another high profile Liberal MP, was sexually abusing boys. David Steel was so concerned at the damage that would be done to the Liberal Party and to Thorpe’s chances of being found not guilty if Smith’s activities found their way into the London-based media, that he utilised the services of the crooked barrister George Carman QC to ensure that the stories about Smith did not appear in the UK wide media.

George Carman was Jeremy’s barrister at the 1979 trial. Carman had until then been based in the north of England and he had lived in Cheshire. He mixed with bent coppers, journos, gangsters and sex workers and had a serious drink and gambling problem. He was also very violent. People did not mess with George Carman, they were very, very frightened of him. Carman knew about Dafydd and the gang in north Wales/Cheshire and after Carman died it was revealed that although he had never acted for Jimmy Savile, he had been retained by him, which was quite enough to have shut everyone up re Savile’s offending.

Getting Thorpe off made Carman’s reputation. He moved to London, where one of his pupil barristers was Miranda. Cherie also worked in Carman’s chambers until 1988. In the 1990s Carman lived in Wimbledon, along with so many of the Top Docs of St George’s, including Prof Geoffrey Chamberlain, Ollie Brooke’s friend and one of those who had colluded with Ollie and the gangs linked to him, including Dafydd’s in north Wales/Cheshire.

For the full background on George Carman, see posts ‘No Ordinary Methods’ and ‘No Ordinary Methods – Supplementary Post’.

 

In June 1981 Dr Death entered Penhaligon’s life, when the SDP-Alliance was formed. The Dr Death who was the MP for Plymouth and who personally knew some of the Top Docs in north Wales involved in the trafficking gang. Dr Death’s fellow travellers in the Gang Of Four all knew about Dafydd and the gang. See post ‘We’ve Been Expecting You’.

David Penhaligon supported the SDP-Liberal Alliance from the start, although he resented SDP attempts to take control of the Liberal Party’s target seats. He was named in January 1982 as one of the ‘firemen’ who would sort out any disagreements between the parties. Penhaligon was particularly prominent in the 1983 election campaign in which he spoke for the Liberal Party on Transport, Industry and Energy. After the election he became an early proponent of a merger between the SDP and the Liberals under a single leader, largely to avoid disputes over allocations of Parliamentary seats.

From 1983 Penhaligon headed the Liberal by-election unit which planned the campaigns in individual seats. At the Liberal Assembly in September 1984 he was chosen as President-elect of the Liberal Party and served as Party President, 1985-86. This carried with it the job of presiding over the Liberal Assembly at the end of his term.

Penhaligon was appointed as Chief Spokesman on the economy in 1985. He was a central figure in planning the Alliance General Election campaign at the time of his death.

At 6.45 am on 22 December 1986, he was travelling to a post office to meet workers there when a van skidded on an icy road and hit his Rover SD1 car near Truck Fork, Probus, Cornwall. Penhaligon was pronounced dead at the scene. The van driver was not prosecuted for the accident. The inquest held in March 1987 strongly suggested that Penhaligon was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, nor was the driver of the van, who was thrown out of his vehicle and suffered two broken legs as a result. Penhaligon’s injuries were extensive fracture of his ribs and fracture of the neck vertebrae. The cause of death was damage to the aorta as well as massive damage to the spleen and liver.

David Penhaligon was very much a west country figure, but the other stronghold of the Liberal Party was of course in Wales. In his various efforts to have Jeremy reigned in, at one point when Norman Scott was living in Wales, a lady who found out about Jeremy’s dreadful conduct was friends with Emlyn Hooson, the Liberal MP for Montgomery. She made representation to Hooson re Jeremy and the Liberal Party set up an inquiry. It ended with Lord Frank Byers, the grandfather of the Labour MP Lisa Nandy, hurling abuse at Norman and Norman walking out and subsequently making an extensive statement to the police. Which was ignored. Hooson told people that he was horrified at Thorpe’s activities, but he didn’t try to stop them or even speak up after Thorpe was arrested and charged. Hooson was one of the corrupt barristers on the Chester and Wales Circuit who spent his career colluding with Dafydd and the gang. Hooson grew up in Denbighshire and was a close friend of Sir Ronnie Waterhouse.

If Emlyn Hooson knew about Jeremy, the rest of polite society in Wales will have. Norman and Jeremy both had links to Wales, including to Denbigh. After he dared tell people about his problems with Jeremy, Norman was discredited by that tried and tested method, a Top Doctor. Namely Desmond Curran of St George’s Hospital Medical School. They have a long and fine tradition there…

See previous posts, including ‘My How Things Haven’t Changed’ for the full background on the Jeremy and Norman story.

 

Penhaligon was killed at the end of 1986, which was the year that the Westland Affair nearly brought down Thatcher’s Gov’t. The Westland Affair was a huge scrap within the Tory Party over the fate of an ailing Somerset engineering company in the Liberal MP Paddy Ashdown’s constituency. The scrap was between Thatcher’s Cabinet Ministers and was precipitated by Michael Heseltine, who was born in Swansea, had been the MP for Tavistock in Devon, 1966-74 and who really, really wanted to be PM (see post ‘A Legend Lives’). The Minister of State at the DTI at the time, the Dept at the centre of the scrap, was Sir Peter Morrison. Sir Anthony Meyer, a north Wales Tory MP with Ugandan interests who knew about Dafydd and the gang benefited from the Westland Affair (see post ‘You Know I’m No Good’). A number of the other MPs who took advantage of the Westland Affair were known to people in Somerset who knew me and knew what was happening to me at the hands of Dafydd and the gang. Some of those individuals did very, very well for themselves after Westland (see posts ‘Those Who Are Ready To Serve’ and ‘Upper Class Twit Of The Year – Shooting Themselves’.)

 

There were just so many unscrupulous people joining in the feeding frenzy during 1986 and so many people with a great deal to lose that it wouldn’t have been in the realms of fantasy to imagine that a few of them had got together and decided to deal with the dangerously popular Mr Penhaligon, a man who knew Peter Bessell and was on the scene back in Bessell and Thorpe’s heyday.

David Penhaligon’s son Matthew has been an active member of the Lib Dems and was the Party’s candidate for the Mayoralty of Hackney in May 2006.

 

David Penhaligon’s cousin was the actress Susan Penhaligon. Susan was one of the fruitiest actresses of the 1970s, up there with Angharad Rees, who was the daughter of Dafydd’s mate Professor Linford Rees at Barts (see post ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’). Susan and Angharad will have known each other and they’ll both have known a few politicians as well, particularly as for many years Susan was active in the Liberal Party. During those years when Jeremy Thorpe was still spoken of as a natty dresser, a charming man about town and a possible future PM, rather than simply being the butt of homophobic jokes by teenage boys.

Susan’s TV roles included parts in ‘Bouquet of Barbed Wire’, ‘Count Dracula’, ‘Doctors’, ‘Casualty’ and ‘Tales Of The Unexpected’. On stage she starred in ‘Death Trap’ and her films included ‘House Of Mortal Sin’, ‘Nasty Habits’ and ‘No Sex Please We’re British’.

From July 1986, David Penhaligon had employed Matthew Taylor, an Oxford graduate, as his research assistant. Taylor was selected to follow him as Liberal candidate for Truro and was duly returned in the Truro by-election in 1987, where he remained as the MP until he stood down in 2010.

Matthew Taylor is the adopted son of Kenneth Taylor, a TV script writer best known for ‘The Jewel In The Crown’. In 2008 Matthew traced his birth mother and learnt that his great-grandfather had been another Liberal MP Sir Percy Harris who served later as an allied-Progressive MP.

Taylor was educated at Treliske Preparatory School (now known as Truro School Prep) in Truro and University College School in Hampstead. Alan Barker, the husband of Trumpers, was the Headmaster of University College School for a number of years, probably when Matthew Taylor was there. Trumpers aka Baroness Jean Trumpington was the junior Health Minister who appointed Jimmy Savile to the task force which managed Broadmoor. In Trumpers’ younger day she had been one of the weekenders at Cliveden, along with the call girls, Russian spies, Gov’t Ministers and members of the Royal Family; Trumpers’s mate Sally Norton had been Bill Astor’s first wife. See previous posts.

Matthew Taylor studied at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford. Taylor campaigned in his first general election in 1979 when he was 16 and joined the Cornwall anti-nuclear alliance a year later. While at Oxford, he was elected as President of the Oxford University Student Union, 1985–86 on the Lib/SDP Alliance ticket.

Matthew Taylor succeeded Penhaligon’s former Truro seat in early 1987 and retained it for the Liberals at the 1987 General Election. That was the election of such high stakes that all parties concealed the rapidly escalating chaos in north Wales and Dafydd and the gang designed an elaborate trap in the weeks before the General Election which was supposed to culminate in me being imprisoned for a serious offence just after it. Risley Remand Centre and the Mental Health Act Commission were fully in cahoots, but everything unravelled when a nursing officer and a Sgt in Bangor Police Station didn’t tell the lies that they were expected to tell. See posts eg. ‘Workers’ Play Time’ and ‘Security, Security’.

Taylor’s celebrity status as the Baby Of The House gave him early access to political media and TV programmes including the BBC’s ‘Question Time’ while being an MP in a small party brought quick promotion to the front bench as local gov’t spokesman.

Matthew Taylor had a successful track record in backing leaders of his party, including Paddy Ashdown and Charles Kennedy, whose successful leadership campaign Taylor led in 1999 after Ashdown stepped down. His reward was to be made the Party’s Treasury spokesman, 1999-03, under Charles Kennedy. So that’s where Matthew Taylor was when the Waterhouse Report was published. Taylor was then Chair of the Lib Dems, 2003-05, as Charles Kennedy was busy killing himself with alcohol but instead of trying to save his life the Lib Dems just worried about what would happen if it became public that Kennedy was drunk on TV.

Taylor announced in 2007 that he would not be seeking re-election to Parliament and did not stand in the 2010 General Election. The Truro and St Austell constituency he represented was then abolished after a boundary review.

So what became of this minor politician who had never been in Gov’t and bagged his seat as a result of the untimely and unexpected death of a man who knew a great deal about a VIP paedophile gang that looked as though it was in deep trouble with the jailing of Ollie, Dr Big in London? He was given a peerage of course. In July 2010. Which was just about when it became clear that a criminal re-investigation into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal would be launched and that a judicial review would be taking place of the Waterhouse Inquiry in the face of so many allegations that it was a huge cover-up. Oh yeh and Brown and I began publishing about our experiences with the north Wales mental health services as well.

In December 2015 Matthew Taylor was appointed President of the National Association of Local Councils.

 

Taylor married Vicky Garner, a former Director of pressure group Surfers Against Sewage, in 2007.

I don’t know what this lot are campaigning against sewage for, they have nothing to offer public life but sewage.

Taylor & Garner Ltd provides business consultancy services, based in Roche, Cornwall.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch in Wales, the Welsh Gov’t have announced that the Top Docs and Angels are getting an even bigger pay rise than the one which they have received in England. In a week of dreadful headlines about the dire state of the NHS in Wales, accompanied by stories of scandal, neglect and fuckwittery. By the time that pay rise hits the bank accounts of the Top Docs, the Public Inquiry into the ‘Tainted Blood’ Scandal will be well underway and it will be clear to the general public that the Top Docs knew that thousands of NHS patients were knowingly being given infected blood products which would kill many of them, but the Top Docs said not a word to anyone but other Top Docs. Who of course were not agreeing to accept those infected blood products themselves or for their families.

Carwyn is thinking of backing the Baroness of Ely as the next FM for Wales because she is in possession of ovaries. She is also in possession of a husband who is a Top Doctor who knew about that infected blood and who will also bag the pay rise. The corks will be popping in the Baroness’s house.

As for those who were witnesses to the crimes of Dafydd’s gang and who think that they haven’t appeared on this blog yet because I’ve forgotten about them, no I haven’t. I’ll introduce here another witness to the appalling abuse and neglect of some Empowered Service Users in Bethesda as well as to the framing of F and the hijacking of his child to whom he was denied access and who was given to a bunch of child abusers by Gwynedd Social Services. I am talking about a Blodwyn aka ‘Blod’ of Coetmor Road, Bethesda. Blod had a baby called Liam at pretty much the same time as F’s baby was born. Blod and her husband knew the family who lied about F and fleeced him of his money and property. Blod had been wanting a baby for years but she didn’t have Liam until she was in her late 30s. Blod was of the opinion that Liam was the result of the fertility Top Docs at Ysbyty Gwynedd. I’ve got news for Blod; those Top Docs did not know their arses from their elbows, they really were clueless, Liam will have had sod all to do with whatever they thought that they were doing.

When Liam was a toddler, there were people in Bethesda who had what would now be called ‘child protection concerns’ about him. Not that anyone said anything, Blod was an aggressive unpleasant piece of work and it was only Empowered Service Users who ever found that they were sleighted as being a risk to children. Blod however found one Empowered Service User very useful indeed. A vulnerable woman in Bethesda who’s whole family were grossly neglected by the Top Docs and Arfon Community Mental Health Team and who was unable to have children herself. Blod cultivated her company and in return for a glimpse of Liam, was subjected to hard luck stories by Blod regarding Blod’s poverty – stories which were not true – and the Empowered Service User was so concerned at the thought of a Baby Going Without that she ended up handing over a good proportion of her disability benefits. I watched the scam escalate over a period of months until it became very obvious that there was exploitation almost as good as that to which F had initially been subjected as he was snared by predators.

One day I made a comment to one of the GPs in Bethesda surgery about what was going on. I was told that it didn’t matter, because buying things for Blod’s baby gave the Empowered Service User so much happiness, what with her not being able to have children herself. The Empowered Service User as a young woman had been due to inherit a considerable amount of money from her mother after her mother died. She was swindled out of nearly all of it by a crooked lawyer in cahoots with a Top Doctor. Bethesda surgery knew about that swindle, so a few years later they encouraged another one.

You Know I’m No Good…

My last post ‘More Dogs That Did Not Bark’ discussed General Pinochet’s arrival in Britain in 1998, his stay at a private hospital in London and his subsequent arrest and detention in London after the Spanish authorities obtained an international arrest warrant. Spain wanted to extradite Pinochet and put him on trial for war crimes, but some helpful Top Doctors provided medical evidence that Pinochet was unfit to stand trial and thus the then Home Secretary Jack Straw overturned a Law Lords ruling that Pinochet should be extradited and Pinochet was flown back to Chile. Pinochet made a remarkable recovery the minute that he hit the tarmac in Chile and lived for another six years.

There was outrage, particularly as it was perceived that the Top Docs had done Pinochet a massive favour.

Now for a few more details with regard to those very helpful British Top Doctors.

When General Pinochet was placed under house arrest, he was staying at The London Clinic. The London Clinic touts itself as a leading ‘private hospital’ and is of course registered as a charity, but it also seems to provides hotel accommodation for the very rich elderly and frail.  Ian MacGregor’s volume on the 1984-85 miners’ strike discusses a meeting that MacGregor had with John Paul Getty II, which culminated in Getty giving a donation of £100k to the National Working Miners. MacGregor mentions that Getty was staying at The London Clinic, which was where Getty usually ‘lived’ when he was in the UK. One of the Trustees of The London Clinic, 1994-2002, was Thatcher’s Cabinet Minister John Biffen (see post ‘A Local Boy Made Good?’). For further details about the London Clinic and those involved with it, see post ‘A Legend Lives’.

I have not yet discovered which Top Doctor(s) operated on Pinochet’s back, which was the main reason for Pinochet’s visit to the UK, but after Pinochet was placed under house arrest, medical opinions regarding Pinochet’s fitness for extradition and trial were supplied by Prof Sir John Grimley Evans, Professor of Clinical Geratology at the University of Oxford; Dr Michael Denham, Consultant Physician in Geriatric Medicine at Northwick Park Hospital in London and Professor Andrew Lees, Professor of Neurology at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in London. Dr Maria Wyke, a Consultant Neuropsychologist at London’s Devonshire Hospital, provided an additional report.’

I provided full details of the background of Professor Sir John Grimley Evans in my post ‘A Few More Who Might Be Able To Answer Questions’.

Dr Michael Denham stars on the website of the London North West Healthcare NHS Trust, which provides the following information:

Dr Michael Denham recently retired as Consultant Geriatrician at Northwick Park Hospital having been both Secretary and later President of the British Geriatrics Society. He hosted the MRCP Examinations on several occasions, and features in the MRCP PACES video. He has recently successfully completed a PhD.

 

In may 1997, The Indie reported that Michael Denham had Chaired the Royal College of Physicians working party which had just published a Report concerning the serious problem of unnecessarily drugging elderly people in ‘care homes’. Denham made some damning comments about the practice, which he admitted was widespread. The Indie told us that:

The practice of “switching the patients out with the lights” is causing increasing concern among medical and charitable organisations, according to the report by the Royal College of Physicians. More than 90 per cent of residents of the homes are prescribed drugs, and nearly half are taking major tranquillisers and other sedatives. Dr Michael Denham, consultant geriatrician at Northwick Park Hospital and chairman of the working party that produced the report, said there had been a six-fold increase in places in private and voluntary homes since 1983, fuelled by a 30 per cent decline in NHS long-term care, which had placed a severe burden on local GPs.

“I fear that in some homes these drugs are being used like a chemical ball and chain to keep patients quiet. These are very frail physically and mentally ill people and virtually the entire lot are on medication, with a large proportion on sedatives. It is a growing cause for concern.”

National guidelines on prescribing drugs in the homes should be reviewed and closer monitoring introduced, possibly by giving overall responsibility to one or two GPs for each home, the report says…

The report, Medication for Older People, says that the over-65s are being prescribed 50 per cent more drugs than a decade ago. The annual number of items prescribed to older people has risen from 14.6 on average in 1985 to 21.8 in 1995. The cost of each prescription rose from £4.10 to £7.55 and accounted for almost half the increase in health authority drugs bills over the decade. Although older people make up 18 per cent of the population they receive 45 per cent of all prescriptions dispensed.

Dr Denham said doctors under pressure tended to have a reflex response to certain conditions such as dizziness in older people and prescribe a tranquilliser without investigating further. “If you leave them on tranquillisers they may end up with symptoms of Parkinsonism … There is a tendency to treat the symptom rather than the disease.”

However, underprescribing is also a problem, driven by some doctors’ ageist approach to treatment. The report says there is evidence that older people benefit more from drugs for heart conditions and high blood pressure than younger people, yet they are less likely to receive them.

“It is sad to note that … the attitudes of some doctors [remain] fixed to the concept of chronological age rather than biological age – the capacity of an individual to benefit,” it says.

 

That Report was published in 1997. It was an update of a previous one published in 1984.

When I was doing my A levels in 1980, my best friend worked in an old folk’s home in Bridgwater, the Drummier Nursing Home. The Drummier was famed throughout Bridgwater for being appalling. My friend, an A level student, told me that the old dears were told that she and other staff were ‘nurses’ and all of the residents were loaded up to eye-balls with a chemical cosh. The Drummier was owned and run by a woman called Johnson, who had previously worked as an Angel in the hospitals in Taunton and Bridgwater. Nurses who had worked with ‘Johnny Johnson’ told of how abusive she had been to the patients in the hospitals.  The Drummier remained up and running for a long time after we left Bridgwater to go to university.

In the summer of 1984, I applied for a job as a care assistant in an old folk’s home in Menai Bridge. I didn’t ever work there because those running it all turned out to be a bit bonkers. It was owned by a man who was an alcoholic and the woman running it, an Angel called Wendy – although that wasn’t her real name – had been sacked from her job at the C&A Hospital in Bangor for having sex with a patient on the ward. Dr D.G.E. Wood had patients in that home. I was told by one of Wood’s colleagues that of course, Wood wouldn’t ever put one of his own relatives in that place. ‘That place’ was located directly opposite the house where Top Doctors Tony and Sadie Francis lived.

Wood and the Drs Francis were facilitating the trafficking ring in north Wales, along with Dafydd, who owned old folk’s homes himself. By 1987, there had been many complaints to the GMC about the neglect, abuse and deaths in Dafydd’s homes, but no action was taken. Mary Wynch always maintained that her mother had been killed unlawfully, probably by a barbiturate overdose, while in one of Dafydd’s homes, but because Dafydd had Mary unlawfully arrested and sectioned, she was never able to prove it (see post ‘The Mary Wynch Case – Details’).

In the early 1990s, I worked at Ceris Nursing Home, near Menai Bridge. Virtually all the residents were well drugged up. The woman who owned and ran Ceris, Mrs Murphy, was an SEN, not an SRN, which meant that Mrs Murphy was not qualified to take control of prescription medication, so Mrs Murphy was legally obliged to employ other SRNs/RGNs to do that. At least one of those registered nurses employed by Mrs Murphy had been sacked from a local hospital.

I worked in old folk’s homes in Gwynedd and Anglesey again during 1999. Every home that I worked in, except for one, was drugging the residents up. In one case, an elderly man was drugged with anti-psychotics when he complained about not being allowed to sit next to his wife during the day – the sitting rooms were separated on the grounds of gender, so a married couple who had been together for 50 years were separated. The old man protested, a tame GP was told how ‘difficult’ he was and out came the prescription pad. Not that the GP who prescribed for him and the other residents ever saw his patients, the order for the drugs was put in over the phone by the monstrous old bag who ran the home, Mrs Moffat, a former Angel of course and the prescriptions were sent over. This home also housed former North Wales Hospital Denbigh patients, including a lady who had been lobotomised. Furthermore she had been lobotomised years after Dafydd and Gwynne had stopped lobotomising awkward customers, or at least they had according to the journal articles and the books telling the history of the North Wales Hospital.

‘We didn’t know.’

Well how did I keep coming across the evidence then?

The lobotomised witness to the wrongdoing was hidden away in the Bryn Ceirios home at Pentraeth on Anglesey for years. Dafydd’s son Dr Dyfrig ap Dafydd works as a GP on Anglesey. I understand that Moffats are no longer at Bryn Ceirios; if they were I would suggest that someone disguises themselves as a transgendered elderly person and watch the confusion as everyone tries to work out whether they should be ordered to sit in the Men’s sitting room or the Women’s sitting room.

Elderly people are still being drugged up by Top Doctors at the request of Angels who run homes for the elderly and some of the offending homes are owned by Top Doctors. There was an EMI home on Anglesey, St Tysilio, owned by one of the Top Docs at Ysbyty Gwynedd. There were reports of abuse at St Tysilio. Dafydd’s mate Dr K. Shah, who was involved in my illegal detention in the North Wales Hospital Denbigh (see post ‘Hippocratic Oath Or Hypocritic Oaf?’), owned the Brig-y-Nant old folk’s home in Bethesda, where patients were abused and neglected, according to one of the care assistants there. Shah’s wife, an Angel, managed the home.

The drugging of the elderly residents of care homes is pretty much routine, no matter how many Top Docs Speak Out. When the Top Docs do Speak Out, the message is always the same – ooh, the GPs are becoming pressured by this and it’s putting a burden on the NHS. The GPs very often own the bloody homes, they’re making a packet out of mediocre or neglectful/abusive ‘care’ of the elderly.

For some of the details of the abuse and neglect that I witnessed while working in homes for the elderly, see post ‘Are There Dark Forces At Work – Again?’.
In many badly managed hospital wards for the elderly, patients are also drugged. The EMI patients who were abused in Tawel Fan at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd were inappropriately drugged. See previous posts. North Wales has hosted for many years one of the UK’s leading experts in EMI care – Professor Bob Woods. Bob Woods is one of many who ignored the trafficking ring and ignored the abuse of elderly patients. Bob Woods was far too busy concerning himself with being an Expert to give a bugger about them. Bob’s own colleague, Professor Clare Wenger, an expert in the care of the elderly herself, blew the whistle long and loudly a few years ago after she was horrified by what she witnessed passing for ‘elderly care’ in Ysbyty Glan Clwyd. She was denounced as a stuck up old cow by Ysbyty Glan Clwyd and the media. Every one of her colleagues remained silent. See previous posts. Well they’d spent years telling the world that they were experts in care for the elderly. Indeed, Bangor produced the Angel who became the first Professor of Gerontological Nursing, Professor Mike Nolan, a former teacher in north Wales who was years later given the Chair in Gerontological Nursing at Sheffield University (see post ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’). Nolan used to run the day centre for the elderly at Ysbyty Gwynedd, where he ignored the abuse of patients. Mike Nolan’s day centre, the Deiniol Day Centre, was located next door to the Menai Day Centre, which was the forerunner of the larger Menai Day Centre which was located in the Hergest Unit when that was subsequently built. So we would go next door and watch Mike Nolan’s patients being abused and neglected and Mike Nolan and his colleagues would keep quiet about what was happening to us.
Did Mike Nolan also keep quiet about what was happening to kids when he worked as a teacher?
For a long while, the consultant psychogeriatrican for Gwynedd was the appalling Dr Devakumar, one of the self-styled ‘BMA psychiatrists’ who’s name and signature is all over my documents, demanding that I be sent to a secure hospital on the grounds of my insanity and dangerousness (see previous posts). Other Devakumar highlights included him swearing at Empowered Service Users – including me – and rolling his sleeves up in a ward round and threatening to have a fist fight with an Empowered Service User (not me amazingly enough).
Dr Devakumar ran the service for sick doctors in north Wales. They didn’t come much sicker than Devakumar and his colleagues…
It was hardly surprising that the Angels in north Wales had no idea how to care for elderly people, because they had never ever been taught how to. Not only were those responsible for ‘training’ the Angels in north Wales frequently clueless and unpleasant, but I watched what happened to student nurses in the hospitals and they were left to flounder. My first experience of this was in 1984, when I was admitted to the A&E at the C&A Hospital in Bangor with a serious injury. There was a student nurse left with me who was pleasant but clearly terrified of the blood spurting out of me, had no idea what to do and was barked at by a passing Angel to fill the documentation in regarding my details. So this poor teenager sat next to me, floundering with the paperwork, saying ‘I’m sorry, I’m new, I’m a student’ and no-one helped her or even told her what she should be doing. At one point, someone said to me ‘I know what you’re thinking but please don’t say it’. I thought, no I’m not going to say a word about this girl not knowing her arse from her elbow, because I can see that no-one is even trying to teach her anything.
I have since been told that the C&A knew that they were being called upon to treat that cow of a UCNW student who was creating uproar re Gwynne the lobotomist, so I wasn’t going to have the benefit of an Angel who knew what she was doing.
Dim problem Top Docs, I am on the side of that Angel – she was a nice girl who was being shafted by you. As were the rest of us you worthless turds.
Now, here’s an interesting story. Liz Stables, the Angel who worked at the Student Health Centre at UCNW in the 1980s and helped facilitate Dafydd’s trafficking gang, trained as an Angel in north Wales and had worked in all the local hospitals in the region. She told me an anecdote involving one newly qualified Angel who was sacked from Llududno Hospital back in the 1980s, because when a Top Doctor told her to warm up some blood, she opened the bag of blood, emptied it into a saucepan and put it on the cooker ring.
I wouldn’t do that to warm up blood and Liz Stables wouldn’t, because someone has familiarised us with the way in which blood is warmed up for clinical use, but what’s the betting that no-one had ever taught that fresh-faced Angel how to warm up blood? If I know anything about the NHS in north Wales, that Angel will have been set up after having been identified as needing to be removed from the inner sanctum of the Angels and Top Docs. That lot screwed up on an hourly basis and people died; furthermore the whole lot of them were running a sex trafficking gang. The newly qualified Angel will almost certainly have raised a concern about some aspect of very serious wrongdoing and the rest of them will have been just waiting for their chance…
Liz Stables was a friend of Dafydd’s. That’s how careers were built, it was entirely unrelated to one’s clinical skills.

Er – no.

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

 

Sir Ronnie in action:

  • SILENT WITNESS | REBECCA
In the Waterhouse Report, Ronnie explained that although he was given evidence that John Allen did serially sexually abuse many of the boys in his care at Bryn Alyn and that there were boys who were known to the other kids as ‘Allen’s bum boys’, there was no evidence that John Allen was violent – except for those occasions on which he lost his temper of course, when the temporary loss of control resulted in extreme violence – and furthermore John Allen was a kind and generous man who gave certain boys at Bryn Alyn many thousands of pounds and expensive gifts, such as motorbikes and stereos. Dafydd too was a kind and caring man who was harassed by me mercilessly, as Dafydd’s friend Professor Bluglass confirmed in another Report, compiled in 1989, which was when the kind and generous John Allen was giving his bum boys thousands of quid and motorbikes.
Three years after Dr Mike Denham raised his deepest concerns about the practice of drugging elderly people which the whole of his profession silently endorsed and continue to endorse, Dr Mike was of very great assistance to the old war criminal from Chile.

Andrew John Lees, Professor of Neurology at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square, London and UCL, helped old Pinochet out by providing medical evidence. In 2011 Lees was named as the world’s most highly cited Parkinson’s disease researcher.

Lees studied medicine at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel, which was on the patch of one of the trafficking gangs linked to the north Wales gang. Lees then trained as a neurologist at the Pitie-Salpetriere Hospital, Paris, UCH and at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery.

Lees was Director of the Reta Lila Weston Institute of Neurological Studies at UCH, 1998-2012. From 2002 to 2012 Lees served as Director of the Sara Koe PSP Research Centre funded by the PSP Association to conduct research into progressive supranuclear palsy.

In 2006, Lees received the American Academy of Neurology Movement Disorders Life Time Achievement Award. In 2012, he was awarded the Dingebauer Prize by the German Society of Neurology. In 2014 he was awarded the Jay Van Andel Award for outstanding research in Parkinson’s disease. This prize is awarded by the Van Andel Institute which was created by Jay Van Andel co-founder of Amway and a Parkinson’s disease patient.

Jay Van Andel might well be motivated to fund a research institute if he suffered from Parkinson’s himself, but not only do I suspect that the co-founder of Amway would not have the knowledge to decide which the most promising lines of research to follow would be, but the profits from Amway was not exactly clean money. I remember Amway really well, it swept north Wales in the early 1990s and friends in Somerset told me that Amway had arrived there as well. Amway was a pyramid selling con which involved flogging expensive detergents and soaps to people who probably didn’t need them. Amway gripped regions of the UK where there was a lack of secure well-paid work – it was why Amway took north Wales by storm – and it also appealed to better off ruthless money grubbers who thought that they could add Amway to their portfolio and make a quick buck.

In 2015 Lees was awarded the Association of British Neurologists Medal. He received the Bing Spear Award for outstanding contributions towards Saner drug policies in 2016.

Bing Spear was a corrupt civil service mandarin who spent decades at the top of the Home Office Drugs Branch; Bing was Deputy Chief Inspector and then Chief Inspector and what a gift he was to Dafydd and other Top Docs who flogged any drugs requested to anyone who had the dosh to pay for them. From the information available, it seems likely that Bing was an addict himself and involved with serious organised crime (see post ‘Little Things Hitting Each Other’). Bing was found dead four days before Sir Peter Morrison was in July 1995, days before Dafydd ‘retired’, clutching in his paws the contract for providing ‘substance abuse services’ for the whole of north Wales (see post ‘The Evolution  Of A Drugs Baron?’) and before the Tory Gov’t told lies about the North Wales Hospital Denbigh now having closed. By that time Ronnie Waterhouse’s ESP had let him know that he would be Chairing the Waterhouse Inquiry, although William Hague didn’t announce it for another year. Meanwhile, Ronnie got on with his tour of Wales, wining and dining with many people who should have asked questions about the activities of Dafydd and the gang but didn’t (see post ‘Heart Of Darkness’).

Throughout 1994 and 1995, the mental health services were, once more, frantically planning and implementing plans in an effort to have me banged up in a secure hospital without trial (see post ‘The Banality Of Evil’).

 

Andrew Lees has also been awarded the Parkinson Canada’s Donald Calne Award and Lectureship for 2017.

Lees has delivered various keynote lectures and memorial lectures worldwide including the UK, Thailand, Budapest and Dublin. Other of his achievements include: Council Member for the Academy of Medical Sciences, UK, National Institute for Health Research Senior investigator, Co-founder and past President of The Movement Disorder Society, Former Co-Editor-in-Chief of the journal ‘Movement Disorders’, UK Government NICE Guidleline Development Group for Parkinson’s Disease (2016-2019), Visiting Professor to the University of Liverpool, Visiting Professor to the Hospital Sao Rafaele, Salvador Brazil, Honorary overseas member of the Academia Nacional de Medicina, Brazil.

In addition to his academic career, Lees has written a book about the  city of Liverpool and co-authored the authorised biography of footballer Ray Kennedy, with Kennedy himself. Ray Kennedy played for Arsenal and Liverpool in the 1970s and early 80s and in Jan 1982 joined Swansea City, but his career ended not long after due to Parkinsons, although he was still a young man. Kennedy was particularly high profile in terms of being a Liverpool player.

Andrew Lees was a longstanding friend of Oliver Sacks, who went to school with Jonathan Miller and remained a close lifelong friend of Miller. Sacks trained at the Middlesex Hospital, Gwynne the lobotomist’s alma mater, an institution which provided Gwynne with lifelong protection. Miller was a Top Doctor, as was his father and Jonathan Miller made some very helpful TV programmes about Madness and how helpful Top Doctors are in the face of Madness in the early 1990s, just when Dafydd and the paedophiles really needed a bit of good PR. Jonathan Miller’s son William worked at the BBC with one of my friends who knew what happened to me in north Wales and was forced out of the BBC soon after Jonathan made those programmes on Madness. Miller and Sacks were big mates with Eric Korn, who was a marine zoologist and had links with UCNW. See post ‘The International Language Of Screaming’ for information on this charming trio and their numerous links to Dafydd and the gang.

Oliver Sacks, like Andrew Lees, also trained at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square and Lees was acknowledged in the preface of Sacks books ‘Awakenings’, a story about treatment of lathargica, which was made into a film starring Robin Williams and ‘The Island of the Colour Blind’, which deals with Parkinsonism.

Robin Williams was found dead in 2014; it was assumed that he’d hung himself, although the reason why was unclear. He had previously experienced drug and alcohol problems as well as depression, but his suicide was attributed to early stage Parkinsons causing his depression.

In his memoir “Mentored by a Madman” Lees explains that his career was influenced by Conan Doyle’s character Sherlock Holmes and by the self-experimentation of William Burroughs.

William Burroughs was famous for his ‘counter-culture’ books detailing his lifestyle, which revolved around an aggressive brand of gay sex accompanied by misgyny and excessive consumption of heroin. What I remember most about William Burroughs’ writing is his description of a corrupt, decrepit old incompetent Top Doctor whom Burroughs and his mates use for their supply of heroin or to patch up the wounds when someone gets shot, but whom they refuse to go anywhere near if one of them is actually ill. I have known since the mid-1980s that north Wales has a Top Doctor of that variety. Unbelievably, he is still there.

 

One of the UK’s leading neurologists of the generation before Andrew Lee, in whose footsteps Lee followed, was Lord John Walton. John Walton was the Bastard of Newcastle-upon-Tyne and dedicated his life to protecting Dafydd and the gang, which Walton was in an excellent position to do holding numerous powerful roles, including President of the BMA, 1980-82; President of the GMC, 1982-89; Warden of Green College, Oxford, 1983-89; President of the Royal Society of Medicine, 1984-86. Walton was Mr Newcastle-upon-Tyne, when that city supplied the gang in north Wales with both children and staff. See post ‘Little Things Hitting Each Other’ for more info on John Walton.

 

The Lord Walton of Detchant

In a House of Lords debate in 2015.

 

Enemy Of The Paedophiles in need of treatment for a brain tumour? Ooh, we’ll just give Lord John Walton a ring and see what he thinks.

Lest anyone accuse me of ‘surely this can’t happen’, it can and it does. When D.G.E. Wood and Tony Francis lost their tempers with me when I first raised concerns about Gwynne the lobotomist, they both screamed at me that if I didn’t withdraw my complaint my career would be ruined and no Top Doctor would ever treat me. I have 10,000 documents in my possession which demonstrate that is exactly what they worked very hard to achieve and they were able to nobble every other Top Doc whom they approached, even Top Docs who didn’t like them. Because they were involved with a bunch of gangsters.

Francis has killed himself but Wood is still with us. I haven’t needed life-saving surgery yet Wood, but I know damn well that I wouldn’t get it if I did, so before that ever happens, you’ve got this blog to deal with you worthless criminal murdering bastard. It is well past the time when someone should have dealt with you and your massive network of criminal associates. Higher pay? I’d cut your fucking pay and pensions by half and then have most of you marched out of your sodding consulting rooms in handcuffs and detained until full confessions are made.

Andrew Lees, a Top Doctor with strong links to Merseyside  and the University of Liverpool, knows them all over at The Walton Centre, who find that their clinical skills are so ineffective when called upon to treat Enemies Of The Paedophiles. Andrew probably knows Dr Death, who served as Chancellor of Liverpool University, 1996-09 and was of course a neurologist and psychiatrist himself before he decided that he was destined to become PM (see post ‘Dr Death’).

Gee Dr Death, come and join our party, you’re a Top Doc from Tommy’s who has the full gen on the Westminster Paedophile Ring and can con the electorate into believing that you’re a caring man with principles who Supports The NHS. We don’t want to die Dr Death, please, not us, we like a drink, we live comfortable lives, we’re all developing type II diabetes, we’re at risk of heart attacks, we’ll do whatever the BMA say, not us, please, it’s not as if we are Empowered Service Users who need to be refused NHS treatment or banged up in Risley Remand Centre because Dr DA says so.

Andrew Lees’s expertise in combating Parkinsonian symptoms has had little effect on the prescribing practices of his psychiatrist colleagues, who continue to wield the prescription pad with alacrity with regard to anti-psychotics, although those drugs not infrequently lead to irreversible Parkinsonian symptoms, resulting in Empowered Service Users visibly twitching and grimacing involuntarily until the day that they die, even if they stop the medication. Some Top Docs are acutely aware of this and only prescribe anti-psychotics when they really do feel that there is no other option, but many more, including dear old Dafydd and his mates of course, really enjoyed prescribing ‘medication’ for unknowing patients without giving them any clue as to what could happen to them.

Brown always told me that if you are Dafydd and you need to ruthlessly exclude your victims from society, anti-psychotics are great because if the patients develop tardive dyskinesia, they look like nutters and even if what they are saying is entirely rational no-one will take them seriously. I saw a few prime examples of this.

There was a lady who used to go to the day centre at Hergest called Delyth, who was really nice and very popular with other patients. Delyth had very severe tardive dyskinesia, so severe that when she was on the bus, members of the general public used to give her a wide berth. When Terry Maxwell and Alun Davies elicited the Great Genocide in the run up to the Waterhouse Report and withdrew virtually all facilities for mental health patients including insisting on the closure of the Menai Day Centre, Delyth was one of those who didn’t survive for much longer. She was placed in some sort of old folk’s home in Penmaenmawr, although she wasn’t elderly and she died not long afterwards. Delyth had had the Denbigh Experience, so there was probably a good reason why she had to be marginalised and finished off at such a critical time.

The world leading Springfield Hospital attached to St George’s Hospital Medical School also had a surprisingly high number of patients with tardive dyskinesia, I would see them wandering around clad in clothes purchased from the hospital shop (see previous post), twitching like there was no tomorrow and bloody hell did they look weird. But then so would I had I ever followed the advice of the Top Docs. Not the sort of weird that upset the Top Docs so much and was lovingly documented as evidence of my Dangerousness – pink hair, untoward hats and hairstyles, Doc Martens etc – but really weird. The sort of weirdness that Empowered Service Users exude when they have been left to die after the attentions of the Top Docs.

Here’s Professor Lees, from who’s expertise General Pinochet benefited even if no-one else has:

 

Andrew Lees

 

 

Dr Maria Wyke who provided an additional report on Pinochet seems to have a limited recent internet presence, although she is mentioned in some articles discussing Pinochet’s case. I have found some old journal articles with her name on, including one published in Dec 1987 with Simon Baron-Cohen and Colin Binnie, in ‘Perception’ about synaesthesia. Wyke’s affiliation was given as the Department of Clinical Psychology, at the Institute of Psychiatry. In 1987 the Institute of Psychiatry was heaving with Top Docs who were concealing the crimes of Dafydd et al in north Wales as Alison Taylor, Mary Wynch and I refused to keep quiet. Many of the gang in north Wales had passed through the Institute of Psychiatry themselves during the course of their ‘training’. The Institute of Psychiatry at the time was located at the Maudsley, also heaving with Dafydd’s mates, which was given as Colin Binnie’s affiliation. Baron-Cohen stated his affiliation as the Dept of Psychology, UCL.

Wyke also published an April 1993 article on synaesthesia with Baron-Cohen, John Harrison and Laura H. Goldstein. Harrison’s affiliation was given as the Academic Unit of Neuroscience, Charing Cross Hospital. By April 1993, Dafydd’s gang had pressed charges against me for staring at a social worker, Jackie Brandt, in Safeway’s and I subsequently appeared in Bangor Magistrates Court later that summer. Brandt, who had previously illegally detained me and then refused to answer any questions about the matter, had told the police that I had screamed and sworn at her in Safeways, such that she believed that I was going to attack her. When cross-examined in the witness box she started crying and admitted that I hadn’t said anything to her at all, but I had looked at her. For further details see previous posts, including ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’. My solicitor told me after the case that I would have been found not guilty had I not started laughing when Brandt began crying. This was a woman who was a member of a paedophile gang, who had goose-stepped into the Court glowering at me, got her own name wrong when asked by the magistrates – ‘Jackie Muriel Billings’ – who then perjured herself and had to retract. Of course I laughed, it was ludicrous.

Did this case set a precedent – in the case of transparent perjury, a guilty verdict will be returned if the defendant laughs? Perhaps we should ask the Chairman of the Bench who presided over that case, Gwynfor Evans. Gwynfor was a retired bank manager from Holyhead. God knows what he did when he was in charge of that bank.

It was subsequently recorded upon my medical records by Dr Sadie Francis that I ‘stormed out of the Court, ranting and swearing’. No, I was far too busy laughing, which was why I had been found guilty…

Jackie, it cost me £60 thanks to a bent Bench, but that was a performance of a lifetime, it was memorable. You were trotting around Gwynedd sectioning witnesses and victims of a paedophile gang, you rang the police and had them break somebody’s door down because they hated you and wouldn’t let you in, Gwynedd Social Services were under investigation by the North Wales Police because of allegations of a huge paedophile ring and you forgot your own name. And I was found guilty because I laughed at you.

The North Wales Police concluded in 1993 that there was no evidence of a paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire. Lucille Hughes, Dafydd’s mistress and Jackie’s boss, was delighted. The London-based media reported on the investigation into a possible paedophile ring in north Wales.

Meanwhile, at Bangor University, the paedophile gang was causing havoc by levelling fallacious allegations of anti-Welsh racism at Graham Day, a senior sociologist. ‘The Guardian’ provided full coverage of Graham’s wicked ways but forgot to mention that those who were causing the problems included some former social workers employed in Gwynedd. See post ‘Badlands’. At the time Bangor University was still completely under the control of Dafydd’s gang.

 

Laura H. Goldstein who co-authored with Mari Wyke is now Professor of Clinical Neuropsychology at King’s College, London and Honorary Consultant Clinical Psychologist at the Lishman Unit, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust. Goldstein’s books include:

  • Goldstein, Laura H; McNeil, Jane E (2004), Clinical neuropsychology : a practical guide to assessment and management for clinicians, Wiley.
  • Cull, Christine; Goldstein, Laura H (2002), The clinical psychologist’s handbook of epilepsy : assessment and management, London.

Goldstein also co-authored ‘Frangou, Sophia, Stuart Donaldson, Michael Hadjulis, Sabine Landau and Laura H. Goldstein. “The Maudsley Bipolar Disorder Project: executive dysfunction in bipolar disorder I and its clinical correlates.” Biological psychiatry 58, no. 11 (2005): 859-864.

Bipolar disorder is still on average not diagnosed until approx 15 years after the condition has developed, is frequently misdiagnosed and very often so poorly managed that the patient’s life is disrupted to a far greater degree than it should be. The best attentions of the Maudsley et al seem to be having very, very little impact on the lives of most people with this condition. David Healy recently published some work which demonstrated quite clearly the sorry state of affairs with regard to bipolar disorder and there has been much comment recently on the way in which bipolar disorder has become an acceptable, even fashionable, illness among high profile people. Try having bipolar disorder when you’re living in north Wales; your lifestyle will not be that of Stephen Fry and you won’t be cultivated in the way that Mr Fry is either. It was noted by people having the Empowered Service User Experience that Stephen Fry went to the US for treatment, although he was happy to make documentaries about bipolar disorder which provided much good PR for the UK Top Doctors.

Stephen Fry is not a stupid man, he knows exactly what life is like for most people with bipolar disorder in the UK and he did not touch on those harsh realities when he was enthusiastically raising awareness and educating the public. A friend recently told me that Stephen is no longer touting himself as a celebrity manic depressive, having been told by a Top Doc that he doesn’t have bipolar disorder after all. This rather proves my point about the Top Doctors and their expertise, but Stephen’s change of status has received very little publicity. There has been no massively promoted BBC series entitled of ‘The Secret Life Of The Incompetent Top Doctors, Who Have Got It Wrong Yet Again’.

 

There are references to another co-author of Wyke’s, John Harrison, a neuropsychologist, in both the UK and the US; I have not had time to find out whether they are the same person or two people working in the same field.

 

I could spend time trawling through everything that these folk have published and who they have published it with, but I have enough here to make the point that when they were early career researchers, they worked with and were mentored by people who were concealing a trafficking gang and perpetrating research fraud.

Simon Baron-Cohen is of course now world famous, he established his reputation in the field of dyslexia and used to turn up as a guest at the School of Psychology at Bangor University when Professor Fergus Lowe ruled over that domain (see previous posts for more info on Baron-Cohen). The Fungus who built his empire entirely upon blackmailing and threatening people in high and low places who had colluded with Dafydd and the gang (see posts ‘He’s Not The Messiah, He’s A Very Naughty Boy’ and ‘Feet In Chains’).

The parents of children whom I know with dyslexic kids are still reporting that they are having terrible trouble getting help from the state school system. There was a quip on Radio 4 the other day from a not very old comedian remembering his terrible school days as a kid with dyslexia and how little understanding or support there was. He observed that the difference between kids who got support and those who didn’t was £400. He was spot on. Parents battle for ages, get nowhere but are told that if they consult a psychologist privately, their child can be assessed and once that happens, the doors to ‘support’ will open. Well they will if their child is at the right sort of school. If they are at a school which still is incapable of supporting dyslexic kids, those with more money give up and send their kids to a private school. I used to work at Hillgrove School in Bangor, a small private school, which was packed with lovely kids who had encountered terrible problems in the local state schools because they were dyslexic and the schools just couldn’t deal with it.

Bangor University’s School of Psychology was a centre of excellence with regard to dyslexia. This reputation was built upon the work of the late Professor Tim Miles, who was a pioneer in the education of dyslexic children (see post ‘Sleeping With The Fishes’). Tim’s pioneering work was carried out among children on Anglesey in the mid-1960s. At the time, Lucille Hughes worked as a social worker on Anglesey, precisely as the Children’s Officer. Dafydd himself was conducting a ‘community health’ project with another member of the gang on Anglesey.

Tim Miles must have seen at least some clues as to what was happening to some kids on Anglesey.

Tim the Enchanter:

  • LE VIDEO SHELF: Tim The Enchanter

The MP for Anglesey at the time was Cledwyn Hughes, later Lord Cledwyn, who spent his career concealing Dafydd’s gang (see post ‘The Cradle Of Filth’). Lord Cledwyn was a big mate of the parents of one Glenys Kinnock, a girl from Holyhead who became a teacher and had a Windbag of a boyfriend from south Wales, who’s later career as a Professional Windbag received a considerable boost from Lord Cledwyn. The Windbag knew one Tony Francis when they were at Cardiff University.

When I was working at Hillgrove School, Tim’s colleague Anne Cook got very angry with me when she heard me telling one of my friends that I had a lot of dyslexic children in my class at Hillgrove. Ann snapped at me ‘and have you completed the MSc in dyslexia?’ I explained that no I hadn’t, but I had completed some of the SEN modules on the MEd and I had never told anyone that I had completed specialist dyslexia training, presuming that I was being accused of misrepresenting my experience. Cook walked off in silence, with a distinctly frosty aura.

I wondered for ages what is was that had riled Anne Cook that day. I can’t be sure, but I am wondering whether Anne Cook was angered to have come up against evidence of her failure. There she was, Bangor University’s dyslexia expert, yet Hillgrove School was full of kids with dyslexia who’s parents had withdrawn them from the local state schools in despair. The state schools which were providing the training for the student teachers at Bangor University and the subject material for that centre of excellence re dyslexia that was the School of Psychology. The reason why the dyslexic kids coped better at Hillgrove was really very, very simple. There were eight or so kids in the class, so the teacher had much more time to address whatever difficulties the children had. It is not rocket science, this is quietly acknowledged by nearly all teachers and it is often the main reason why parents who’s children encounter difficulties with academic work send them to a private school. If kids are bright and happy and have no problems, they are fine in a class of 30. They are not if they have problems learning.

Whatever expertise Baron-Cohen et al believe that they have, it is not being felt by huge numbers of children with dyslexia in many state schools. Few people will admit that and no-one will admit the rotten roots from which the dyslexia experts have arisen: Dafydd et al in north Wales and Lord Brian Flowers et al in the University of London. See previous posts.

 

Before Professor Simon Baron-Cohen became Mr Big in dyslexia, another name one would hear a great deal about in dyslexia circles was that of Dr Margaret Newton, who worked in the Dept of Psychology at Aston University. Tim Miles was a big pal of Margaret Newton. In the 1970s, Bangor and Aston were the only universities carrying out any research into dyslexia and even in the 1980s, Bangor and Aston led the field. London University didn’t get a look in. Brown knew Margaret Newton, she taught him when he was an undergrad. She was a little old lady who rode a massive motorbike and like Tim Miles, she endeared herself to many people. Like the endearing Tim, the endearing Margaret worked alongside some very unpleasant people.

There was Professor Elwyn Edwards for a start, who invited male freshers to his room for a welcome drink, only to greet them dressed in nought but a silk dressing gown and would then try and seduce them (see post ‘A Vintage Crop’). Above Elwyn Edwards, at the top of Aston University, there was Thatch’s favourite VC, Sir Freddie Crawford, who was as corrupt as they come and had a criminal son who relied upon his dad to get him out of trouble. Crawford junior was found dead in an hotel in Israel, allegedly from a drugs overdose, but that was one of the ways that witnesses to the wrongdoing of Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring tended to go. Then there was Aston’s student doctor, the dreadful Philip Cauthery, who doubled up as a sex therapist, was on the Editorial Board of ‘Forum’ magazine when the small ads were colonised by paedophiles and presided over the highest student suicide rate of any UK university. See previous posts for details on Philip Cauthery, who like Dafydd, was protected from scandal as a result of being a Top Doc.

Freddie Crawford was subsequently appointed Chair of the Criminal Cases Review Commission, which caused a huge row because Crawford was an active Freemason. Freddie Crawford was a big name in Birmingham civic life, which at the same was highly corrupt, partly as a result of the West Midlands Serious Crime Squad. A trafficking gang linked to Dafydd’s also operated in the West Midlands and many kids from the region were sent to children’s homes in north Wales. Dafydd’s mate Professor Robert Bluglass reigned supreme over the NHS in Birmingham and he was subsequently joined by Tony Francis’s mate Professor Ian Brockington (see post ‘Ian Brockington’s Mischief’).

I have no idea how much Margaret Newton knew about the serious crime swirling around her, but with Sir Charles Evans and then Professor Eric Sunderland at Bangor along with Fungus and Dafydd and then Freddie Crawford at Aston, nothing will have been clean. I’d be interested to know how Lord Brian Flowers wangled things to ensure that London University was able to start touting itself around as being a centre of excellence in dyslexia.

London University: I know that you’re all big and posh and grand but perhaps you could drop me a line and let me know exactly what the deal was between the Gov’t and the Universities of London, Bangor and Aston re the whistleblowing students from UCNW and Aston who in the 1980s tripped over the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Thanks London!

 

I used to know someone who kept getting my name wrong and calling me Sally Butler. She explained that she kept making this mistake because she knew that my name was the name of one of the Education Acts, either the Baker Act or the Butler Act, but she couldn’t remember which one.

Altogether now, from assorted politicians and people in various universities who take themselves rather more seriously than they deserve to be taken:

An article in ‘The Guardian’ dated 13 Jan 2000, published the week after the ‘six hours’ of ‘medical tests’ which were performed on Pinochet at the Northwick Park Hospital in order to determine his fitness to stand trial, stated that Andrew Lees is a fluent Spanish speaker and that the tests were conducted in Spanish, ‘Pinochet’s native tongue’.

Lees’s status as a medical adviser to the British Boxing Board of Control is mentioned in ‘The Guardian’ article. In which case Lees might like to explain why the BMA mysteriously dropped their opposition to boxing, which in the late 1980s they were determined to outlaw; Dr John Marks, the then President of the BMA really had the bit between his teeth on that matter. The BMA won just about every battle with every Gov’t, but they didn’t win that one. We haven’t heard anything about the dangers of boxing from the BMA for a very, very long time now and boxing is now being advertised as a healthy past-time for young men in danger of going off the rails and even as Empowering for young women. The medical evidence with regard to boxing isn’t in any way controversial; being repeatedly hit on the head is not a good idea and if you’re really unlucky, you can die after one punch, which is still on occasions happening in boxing matches.

So then BMA, what shut you up? Er – perhaps Andrew Lees’s knowledge of the slurry pit which was Dafydd and the gang, which became deeper and deeper and deeper and with which you are intimately involved? It can’t have been the favour that Andrew Lees did for Blair’s Gov’t regarding Pinochet because you’d gone silent with regard to the dangers involved in boxing before then.

 

‘The Guardian’ told us that Maria Wyke was also a fluent Spanish-speaker and ‘specialises in studying brain behaviour relationships… in evaluating and treating people thought to have something wrong with their nervous system.’

Press reports from 2000 stated that Maria Wyke worked at the Devonshire Hospital, London. I don’t think there is a Devonshire Hospital, London, but there is a Devonshire Unit, which is a huge wing of The London Clinic. I assume that is what the press reports are referring to. The London Clinic in which Pinochet was placed under arrest, after arriving there for his back surgery…

The Top Docs can cater to one’s every need when they feel so inclined.

 

It is obvious that these Top Docs of ‘outstanding national and international reputation’ as Jack Straw described them got it completely wrong with regard to their assessment of Pinochet, which can only mean that their tests do not work, or they were seriously incompetent or they knowingly produced misleading reports.

The additional report by Dr Maria Wyke caused particular controversy, as her work was criticised in detail in July 2000 in a report written by Dr Nimisha Patel, Head of Clinical Psychology at the London-based Medical Foundation for the Care of Victims of Torture.

 

I was so busy blogging yesterday that I didn’t have time to dig out the names of the Top Doctors who provided the reports on Pinochet, a helpful reader e mailed me the names last night. However, he told me that he couldn’t find the name of the Top Doc who carried out the operation on Pinochet’s back anywhere. Pinochet was placed under house arrest at The London Hospital within days of his arrival there. Pinochet was not a man to go unprepared, he arrived in London with armed bodyguards, who were with him in The London Clinic. Pinochet will have known that the Spanish authorities wanted to put him on trial and were in hot pursuit of an extradition order. So it was certainly convenient that The London Clinic had a Spanish speaking neuropsychologist – Maria Wyke – available to provide an additional report on Pinochet.

Did Pinochet actually have any surgery on his back at The London Clinic? Is it possible that The London Clinic knew that the General might need a helpful neuropsychological medical assessment conducted by an expert fluent in his native tongue – you can’t argue with that! – before he arrived at the clinic with his lumbago? If General Pinochet had tried to claim social security on the basis of that bad back of his, he’d have been accused of swinging the lead.

  • Cold War Killer File: Augusto Pinochet – The Red Phoenix

 

Augusto Pinochet’s regime was responsible for various human rights abuses during its reign, including murder and torture of political opponents. According to a Gov’t commission report that included testimony from more than 30,000 people, Pinochet’s Gov’t killed at least 3,197 people and tortured about 29,000. Two-thirds of the cases listed in the report happened in 1973.

Professor Clive Foss estimates that 1,500–2,000 Chileans were killed or ‘disappeared’ during the Pinochet regime. In October 1979, the ‘New York Times’ reported that Amnesty had documented the disappearance of approximately 1,500 Chileans since 1973.  Among the killed and disappeared during the military regime were at least 663 Marxist MIR guerrillas. The Manuel Rodríguez Patriotic Front, however, has stated that only 49 FPMR guerrillas were killed but hundreds detained and tortured. According to a study in Latin American Perspectives, at least 200,000 Chileans (about 2% of Chile’s 1973 population) were forced to go into exile. Additionally, hundreds of thousands left the country in the wake of the economic crises that followed the military coup during the 1970s and 1980s. Some of the key individuals who fled because of political persecution were followed in their exile by the DINA secret police, in the framework of Operation Condor, which linked South American military dictatorships together against political opponents.

According to Peter Kornbluh in ‘The Pinochet File’ “routine sadism was taken to extremes” in the prison camps. The rape of women was common, including sexual torture such as the insertion of rats into genitals and “unnatural acts involving dogs.” Detainees were forcibly immersed in vats of urine and excrement, and were occasionally forced to ingest it. Beatings with gun butts, fists and chains were routine; one technique known as “the telephone” involved the torturer slamming “his open hands hard and rhythmically against the ears of the victim,” leaving the person deaf. At Villa Grimaldi, prisoners were dragged into the parking lot and had the bones in their legs crushed as they were run over with trucks. Some died from torture; prisoners were beaten with chains and left to die from internal injuries. Following abuse and execution, corpses were interred in secret graves, dropped into rivers or the ocean, or just dumped on urban streets in the night. The body of the renowned Chilean singer, theatre director and academic Victor Jara was found in a dirty canal “with his hands and face extremely disfigured” and with “forty-four bullet holes.”

The practice of murdering political opponents via “death flights”, employed by the juntas of Argentina and Chile, has been the subject of numerous alt-right internet memes, with the suggestion that political enemies be given “free helicopter rides.” In 2001, Chilean President Ricardo Lagos informed the nation that during Pinochet’s reign, 120 bodies had been tossed from helicopters into “the ocean, the lakes and the rivers of Chile”.

 

Margaret Thatcher’s friend. Treated to tea on the Commons terrace. Given the best treatment that the British medical establishment could rustle up which also got him off torture and murder charges :

Now for more background on someone else introduced to readers of this blog in my last post ‘More Dogs That Did Not Bark’, Karl Davies, the Plaid activist who at one point worked for BBC Wales and sent me inadequate replies to my letters to the BBC. I mentioned that I remembered reading that Karl had stood as a Plaid candidate in north Wales in an election back in the 1980s. I have discovered that Karl stood for Plaid in Clwyd North West in the 1987 General Election, on the 11 June. That was the General Election in which everything was up for grabs and the dirty tactics were even dirtier than usual. The Windbag really thought that he was in with a chance and he was out and about in Llandudno and on Anglesey with Mrs Windbag, where he did actually kiss babies and children. Plaid got their hopes up as ever and wanted a good showing across Wales rather than just in their traditional stronghold of the north and the west. After all the effort and everyone keeping quiet about the paedophile gang in north Wales, Thatch romped home.

Documents in my possession show that before that election, Dafydd et al had very carefully planned to get me up to north Wales (I was living in Leicester at the time) a few days after the election, where once I was there, I would be fitted up for a serious offence and imprisoned in Risley Remand Centre. I have evidence that Risley Remand Centre and the Mental Health Act Commission were colluding. It went pear-shaped when a nursing officer didn’t tell as many lies as he was required to do so and by the refusal of Sgt Morgan at Bangor Police Station to play ball. See eg. posts ‘Workers’ Play Time’ and ‘Security, Security’. The nursing officer’s wife later died in the care of Ysbyty Gwynedd at the age of 40 years or so and he subsequently went into hiding after receiving death threats. Sgt Morgan was found guilty of indecently assaulting a teenaged girl in Bangor Police Station and was sacked. The nursing officer who found himself been bitten by the hand of the paedophile gang whom he had politely ignored if not actually fed, seemed to know that Sgt Morgan was going to be found guilty immediately after Sgt Morgan was charged, long before his trial.

Alun Davies, the NHS manager at Ysbyty Gwynedd, had previously bellowed down the phone at me ‘we’ll be putting in a complaint about him’ after I reminded Davies that Sgt Morgan had admitted that ‘they’re all conspiring against you up there’.

Karl Davies polled the least votes out of the four candidates who stood in Clwyd North West in June 1987. Sir Anthony Meyer, the sitting Tory MP held the seat.

Clwyd North West was a very fraught constituency. It covered an area which was/is a paedophiles’ friends’ stronghold and included part of the Colwyn Bay area, which as I have previously described is a favourite location for the higher paid paedophiles’ friends to reside, as well as many police officers, due to the HQ of the North Wales Police being sited there. Dafydd’s umbrella Professor Robert Owen lived at Colwyn Bay (see post ‘In Memoriam – Professor Robert Owen’), as does the former Chief Executive of Gwynedd County Council, Huw Vaughan Thomas (see post ‘I Know Nuzzing’) and his wife Enid Rowlands (see post ‘Dirty Rotten Scandals’) and many, many more. Gwynfa Unit, the children’s mental health unit where children were raped, buggered and beaten, was sited at Colwyn Bay and the Angel who ran the Unit, a former Denbigh Angel called Nigel Mannering Berry, lived at Colwyn Bay and in later life was the Director of Colwyn Bay Masonic Hall. Dr Barry Kiehn, the Top Doctor who was attached to the Gwynfa Unit, also lives in Colwyn Bay. See post ‘Don’t Be Silly, He’s Nice’.

In 1983, a civil war broke out in Clwyd West when that bestest of paedophiles’ friends, former Denbighshire social worker and Tory MEP Beata Brookes, did dreadful things in an attempt to become the Tory candidate for Clwyd North West (see post ‘The Celtic Iron Lady And Yet More Recent History’). Sir Anthony, the sitting Tory MP for Clwyd North West, did battle and prevented the corrupt old cow from achieving her ambition, for which we should be forever grateful. Sir Anthony then memorably stood as the stalking horse in a leadership challenge against Thatch in 1987. Sir Anthony was widely ridiculed but it was this action which resulted in Thatch facing a stronger leadership challenge and being ousted in Nov 1990. I very much suspect that Sir Anthony took the view that this really was too much, corrupt fucking police officers trying to fit up the target of a trafficking gang and then stitching up the police officer who protected her. How do I know that Sir Anthony knew about it? Because MI5 had my phone bugged, they’d wired up the hospitals, the police stations etc etc as I have previously described and they knew what was happening to me in 1987.

The security services knew exactly what was going on and it was getting very, very out of hand. Sir Anthony was the sort of old upper crust gent who would have had links with the security services.

MI5: Thatch was subsequently deposed. Many thanks. She was replaced by John Major, who concealed exactly the same trafficking ring, using the same Ministers and the same infrastructure – the Top Doctors and the welfare services. What you did not do was warn Brown, me or any other targets.

On 18 Nov 1987, a fireball at King’s Cross Station killed 31 people. I was due to be travelling through there at the time of the fire, but I was delayed. Since beginning this blog, I have been told that the King’s Cross Fire was supposed to kill me.

MI5 shouldn’t have replaced the Gov’t, they should have obliterated the medical establishment. I and my friends had the evidence which would have allowed them to do that, but they stood by while we all had our lives and careers destroyed.

 

On 9 April 1992, the General Election was held. Once more, the Windbag got his hopes up.

John Major was returned as PM and Rod Richards was elected as the Tory MP for Clwyd North West. Rod Richards is one of those who later admitted that Thatcher knew that Sir Peter Morrison was molesting children.

Peter Morrison stood down at the 1992 General Election.

Some two weeks after the 1992 General Election, a firebomb was thrown into a building in Brighton where a party was underway, to which a number of witnesses to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal had been invited. Five people died. See post ‘The Silence Of The Welsh Lambs’. The man who was alleged to have started the fire was killed when he was hit by a lorry a few days later. A number of other party-goers were found dead in the following years.

The year 1992 saw a flurry of peerages handed out to paedophiles’ friends. Dr Death was one of the lucky winners.

 

To return to Karl Davies, who wanted to enter the fray in Clwyd North West in 1987. Karl Davies was brought up in Abergele, just down the road from Colwyn Bay. North Wales was entertained when back in the 1990s, Abergele was named in the media as being somewhere with a vigorous swinging scene. Dafydd owned a house just down the road in Prestatyn. What did Dafydd do in that house? He held clinics of course. Very odd clinics, because from what I heard when I listened into one of those clinics, there was loud music being played, drinks were being dispensed and there was much noise and raucous laughter. That house was in very bad nick as well, it wasn’t maintained and if I had turned up there for a clinic, I would have left immediately. However, the house was a substantial size and would have been just right if one wanted to hold a party without anyone complaining or indeed even watching what was going on.

Knocking Shop Sticker Pack – Wheel Whores

 

Karl Davies studied law and history at Aberystwyth University, alongside so many who found work with the corrupt lawyers of north Wales. After failing to become the Plaid MP for Clwyd North West, between 1990 and 1993, Karl worked as Parliamentary Editor for BBC Wales, responsible for producing two weekly television programmes and organising all political news coverage for BBC Wales. So Karl was in that post during the 1991-93 North Wales Police investigation into the possible paedophile ring, which drew a complete blank. No evidence found of any such thing. Neither did any of the chaos and craziness which surrounded Dafydd et al ever find its way onto BBC Wales or indeed any part of the BBC.

Karl had worked for the BBC prior to 1990, but I’m not sure when; he had produced the BBC Radio Cymru programme ‘Heddiw’.

In 1993, Karl became Chief Executive of Plaid, remaining in post until 2002. In May 2002, Karl’s career took a new direction. The enthusiastic Plaid activist who had even stood for Parliament, took up the post of Director of the Welsh branch of the NAHT (National Association of Head Teachers).

In 2002, I was forced out of my teaching job after Keith Fearns, the leader of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team, paid a visit to the Headmaster of Hillgrove School and told him that I was a dangerous nutter who ‘carries knives in her handbag’. I didn’t have a handbag at the time, with knives or anything else in it. The Headmaster told Fearns that he had never had any concerns about me, whereupon Fearns left. Over the next few days, the Headmaster and his wife received numerous telephone calls from the parents of children, who had been told that one of the teachers was a dangerous loony. The person who had told them this was another parent, who was employed as a psychiatrist at the Hergest Unit. I told Hillgrove that I’d stand down to save them any more grief. It wasn’t sufficient, the paedophile gang carried out a further attack on Hillgrove School, which caused very much more trouble than Fearns’s lies about me had (see previous posts).

I will be blogging more about this soon, but at this stage I’ll make the following observations now that Hillgrove has closed, although I won’t provide full details of events, because I do not want the former pupils to be identified. At Hillgrove, there were two children of social workers whom it was believed were being sexually abused at home. One of those children, some five years later, as a teenager, carried out a serious sexual assault on a little girl. A Hergest Unit assessment maintained that he posed no risk. There was one child of a Top Doc at Ysbyty Gwynedd who was being sexually abused by a relative. There were two children of police officers who were known to be subjected to serious physical violence at home. There were two children who’s parents were known to be involved with serious crime, mainly drug dealing and one of the children told me that he had been threatened with a gun by his mum’s boyfriend. There was one child who’s mother was a sex worker. She is now employed as an Angel at Ysbyty Gwynedd. I don’t know how, because although she began training as an Angel years ago in Derbyshire, I’m fairly sure that she didn’t qualify.

None of these serious child protection issues were ever reported. Hillgrove School knew exactly what would have come their way if they had ever pointed a finger at a Top Doctor, a social worker or a police officer. I would not be surprised if these abusive criminal parents in professional positions were used as a stick to beat Hillgrove with when they employed me.

Now, the other staff at Hillgrove. One was the wife of Peter Field, the former Head of the School of English at Bangor University. Peter Field worked at Bangor University when the paedophiles’ friends ran the institution and he knew all about them. He also knew that Dave Nunn, one of his colleagues, had been destroyed by the gang after a period of illness. I knew Dave from the Hergest Unit. Dave disappeared from north Wales a few weeks after reading the laughable affidavit concerning my alleged crimes that Dafydd swore into Liverpool High Court at the end of 1994 and telling the Top Doctors, including some Top Doctors from outside of north Wales who were requested to section him but refused, what was in that affidavit. See previous posts. Another Hillgrove teacher was Sally Atkinson, who’s father was John Webster, who had been a lecturer at Bangor Normal College, at the hub of the paedophiles’ friends. Sally Atkinson had regular socials with Gwynedd social workers, including Judith and Macolm Stammers, who had worked with Dafydd at Denbigh and with everyone at the Hergest Unit. Sally Atkinson waxed lyrical about how Hillgrove School was failing to adhere to child protection procedures. So were Sally Atkinson and all her mates in the trafficking gang… Another teacher had been the neighbour of one of Dafydd’s victims when they had both lived near Bethesda back in the 1980s and she knew about much of the wrongdoing involved in his arrest and imprisonment. Another teacher was the neighbour of Adrian and Alison Bell, two retired members of staff of the Plant Biology Dept at Bangor University who, like Peter Field, knew all about the trafficking gang. Adrian was one of those who simply ignored me when I told him that Brown was receiving death threats. Adrian also ignored the pleas for help from two other students whom he knew were being targeted by the gang and were being seriously harassed by the Drug Squad. Another teacher at Hillgrove was married to someone who worked at the Hergest Unit and knew how badly the patients were treated.

I was not the only teacher at Hillgrove who was targeted by the gang. I was friends with another teacher who was living with a violent man and this was known; she was sporting bruises. He threatened to kill her if she tried to leave. I knew her well and she was very frightened. One day, she summed up the courage and told him that she was off. He contacted Hillgrove School and told them that she was a drug addict. Her GP confirmed this. She was sacked. The drugs to which she was addicted were benzodiazepines, which had been prescribed by the GP who knew that she was living with a man of whom she was terrified. They lived in Llandudno – Dafydd’s territory.

There is very much more that I could say regarding the criminal methods used by the low-life employed as Top Docs, Angels, social workers and police officers who caused such chaos in order to force me out of my job at Hillgrove, but I am not going to compromise other targets and victims.

There was another Hillgrove parent of two of my former pupils whom I need to mention. She used to work as an Angel in Denbigh and she staffed Bryn Golau Ward when I was illegally imprisoned by Dafydd in the winter of 1986/87. She was one of the nicer nurses and she spent time telling me of at least some of the laws which Dafydd had broken. The documents in my possession are covered in her protests regarding what was happening to me; she recorded it all and provided full details of the laws which were broken, the ‘deal’ that Dafydd struck with Superintendent Roberts at Bangor Police Station to have me wrongly arrested and illegally imprisoned and of how Dr Neil Davies was also part of it. Her children had no idea that I had known their mum before they were born. Her daughter did tell me that long ago her mum worked at a ‘terrible, terrible hospital in Denbigh’ and that she left because it was so bad.

That nurse is now dead. She was taken ill very suddenly, at about 40 yrs old and died in the care of Ysbyty Glan Clwyd. She died just a few weeks after I was forced out of my job at Hillgrove.

Wendy Gough-Hughes – another witness who is now dead. All the patients who were in Bryn Golau Ward with me are dead and so is the one honest Angel who dared raise concerns about what was happening.

Dafydd and Fearns, you have a great deal of explaining to do.

 

Do you wish that perhaps you hadn’t started all this Top Doctors?

Back to Karl Davies!

Upon being appointed as Director of NAHT in Wales, Karl stated that he had only ever intended to stay with Plaid Cymru in the short term: ‘I don’t see myself as moving out of the political process: I will be involved in politics in a different way. It might be more satisfying: being involved intensively in one area’. Karl stated that education ‘is the most important political field in Wales at the moment. And Jane Davidson, Assembly Minister for Education and Lifelong Learning, is keen to work with unions to develop a Welsh agenda’.

Jane Davidson is from Birmingham and has a background in education herself. When she was Minister for Education, Jane found herself in the middle of a scandal after it was realised that Jane had authorised the transfer of £2 million from ELWA,  a ‘learning and training organisation’, which slipped through ELWAs hands into the hands of another company who could not explain where the dosh had gone. Neither had Gov’t accounting procedures been followed and other irregularities had not been disclosed when requested.

The Chair of ELWA at the time was Enid Rowlands. Enid is a ‘proud north Waleian’ who refused to relocate to south Wales when appointed as Chair of ELWA, nearly all of whose staff were in south Wales. Enid is married to Huw Vaughan Thomas, who was Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council when the paedophile gang were busy within. Huw was then appointed as Auditor General for Wales, after the previous Auditor General for Wales, Jeremy Colman, was imprisoned for the possession of child porn.

It gets better.

After the £2 million fiasco and the redundancy of nearly 100 staff, Enid refused to resign as Chair of ELWA. An interim Chief Exec had been appointed – Dr Peter Higson. Higson was an Executive Director of the North Wales Health Authority when one Enid Rowlands was the Chair. Enid Rowlands is the former Chair of Victim Support; served on the GMC for 8 years; has served as a member of the North Wales Police Authority, as a member of the S4C Authority and has been/is a member of the BUPA Council. Enid is the former Chair of Education and Skills Wales, which was responsible for all post-16 education and training in Wales outside HE.

The icing on the cake is that Enid was and might still be the Chair of the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority.

Enid has a degree in psychology. What’s the betting that degree was undertaken in the Dept of Psychology at Bangor, under the watchful eye of dear old Dafydd and the paedophiles’ friends?

After ELWA imploded, Dr Peter Higson bagged himself a new job, as Chief Exec of the newly created HIW (Health Inspectorate Wales). After some nine years at the helm, Higson left HIW, to become Chair of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board. Higson’s early career had been as a clinical psychologist in the North Wales Hospital Denbigh and then as the manager of that institution, while Dafydd kept the victims of the trafficking gang in the dungeon out there. HIW was declared as not being fit for purpose immediately after Higson departed.

See post ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’ for more information on the putrid network of this little bunch.

 

 

To return to Karl Davies. When joining NAHT as Director, Karl explained: ‘Coming from politics, I would be in a good position to assist NAHT in their reaction to policies and in the lead they give to change in Wales’.

No-one seems to have mentioned the words ‘conflict of interest’ to Karl, but then no-one mentioned them to Peter Higson and Enid Rowlands either. They are not words that one hears as often as one should, particularly in north Wales. Indeed, Karl’s huge conflict of interest was positively embraced by his new employers: ‘I chose Karl Davies because he has enormous experience at putting over a message, both through the media and through politics,’ said David Hart, General Secretary of the NAHT. (I do not know if this David Hart is the mad right wing figure who used to lurk in the shadows and advise Thatcher.) ‘He has substantial political connections, with a particularly Welsh dimension. His Plaid Cymru background will enable him to make effective representation at the Assembly level.’

Neither had Karl long left his political ambitions behind. Karl had stood for selection as the Plaid Parliamentary candidate for Ynys Mon (Anglesey) at the previous General Election, ie. 2001. Ynys Mon was won that year by Albert Owen, the Labour candidate.

There was a little local difficulty in terms of education on Ynys Mon at the time, in the form of Holyhead School. It was in meltdown, as a consequence of the gross incompetence of the Head, Margaret Chantrell and her fuckwit of a Deputy, Gerald Hewitson. I undertook one of my teacher training placements at Holyhead School in 2001 and had nothing but aggro from Gill Dennis, the students’ mentor and Hewitson, the ‘senior mentor’. I was not alone – Dennis and Hewitson maintained that all the trainee teachers but one were so terrible that we should all be failed. They worked particularly hard to fail one student within days of him arriving. We never worked out what it was that he was supposed to have done that was so terrible, but Dennis told us all how much she hated him within days of our arrival. Dennis claimed that he was ‘unprofessional’. Er, OK Dennis, pots and kettles come to mind. Hewitson’s golden good-bye to one student teacher was to sexually harass her on her last day. Bangor University received constant representation from student teachers at Holyhead School regarding unfair practice on their placements.

The parents of Holyhead were not happy with Chantrell either. The train into Bangor in the morning was full of kids who’s parents had refused to send them to Holyhead School. Chantrell and Hewitson’s response to this was to berate the citizens of Holyhead for ‘not supporting’ them. I witnessed the way in which Hewitson spoke to the children’s parents and he spoke to them in exactly the same way as he spoke to their kids – very rudely.

On the last day of my placement, Gill Dennis told me that she hated Holyhead School and only volunteered to be a mentor for the student teachers in order to elicit a glowing reference from Hewitson, to enable her to find a job at another school.

Gill Dennis was pretty much a one-off among the classroom teachers at Holyhead, most of them were very nice and very friendly. The school was only in bits because of the senior managers. The staff had no confidence in Chantrell and Hewitson and Chantrell was hardly ever in the school anyway. She spent most of her time ingratiating herself to the officials in the Welsh Assembly because she wanted a job there. Presumably Chantrell was on good terms with Jane Davidson.

Chantrell did not get her job in the Assembly and she disappeared from Holyhead School after it could no longer be denied that she was the problem and the number of children at the school fell by half as hundreds and hundreds of them were withdrawn by their parents.

For more details of the mismanagement of Holyhead School, see previous posts.

As for all those ‘unsuitable’ student teachers whom Holyhead School demanded that Bangor University should fail, they all went on to teach without doing anything dreadful, although of course I faced serious allegations from the paedophile gang within a year of qualifying. Most of the people whom I did teacher training with at Bangor did leave teaching within a few years, because teaching is basically in a mess. Many of them moved into jobs with universities. I only know of one of my peers who came unstuck. He didn’t undertake a placement at Holyhead and he was never flagged up as being a cause for concern while he was a student. This young man bagged a job at at school near Colwyn Bay and was later obliged to resign after a sexual relationship with a sixth former, but I don’t know the details. That young man was offered his job after I was shortlisted for the same job. I have been recently told that I didn’t get that job because just before the interview, the school received a phone call warning them that they had a dangerous nutter sitting in the interview room…

 

Karl Davies knows the man who was the Plaid Parliamentary candidate for Ynys Mon at the 2005 General Election, Eurig Wyn. Eurig didn’t win the seat, the Labour MP Albert Owen retained it. However, Eurig Wyn was an old hand at politics, he had served as the Plaid MEP for north Wales, 1999-04. So Eurig was in that seat at the time of the publication of the Waterhouse Report and its aftermath. One would have thought that having previously worked as journalist for the BBC, Eurig Wyn might have had a few thoughts on the Waterhouse Inquiry…Prior to his selection as the Plaid candidate in 2005, Eurig Wyn had spent about a year building up a profile in Ynys Mon; the seat was one of Plaid’s target seats for 2005, but Labour held on.

Eurig was the region’s MEP when Holyhead School was sinking like a stone. He didn’t say a word, but then neither did Albert Owen. Instead Albert was happy to provide a bit of PR for Holyhead School, he proudly told everyone that he was an old boy. Holyhead School has hosted a bigger star than Albert in the dim and distant past though – Baroness Windbag is a former old pupil of Holyhead!

Glenys, that school and indeed the residents of Holyhead could have really done with your help at the time. The Baroness must have had her hands full with other duties. What was she busy with precisely? Well, between 1999-09, Glenys was an MEP for Wales! Prior to that, Glenys had been the MEP for South Wales East, 1994-99. Little wonder she missed the Waterhouse Inquiry into child abuse on her home patch, although she could have always have asked the Windbag’s mate Tony Francis if he knew anything about it all. Ooh – the child molester George Thomas had spent decades as a Labour MP in south Wales, the Windbags knew him very well… South Wales also hosted Ron Davies who has some interesting past-times. Ron was still a Labour MP and indeed Secretary of State for Wales when Glenys was an MEP for South Wales East.

Glenys might have noticed something else on her home patch of south Wales at the time of the Waterhouse Inquiry though. The huge scandal involving John Owen, a drama teacher at Ysgol Gyfun Rhydfelen in Pontypridd. Owen was a big name in Welsh language children’s writing and drama for young people and wrote/directed the S4C teenagers series ‘Pam Fi Duw’ (Why Me God). John Owen had been sexually abusing his pupils and it transpired young people in theatres, music festivals etc as well for decades. There had been serious complaints about him at least as far back as the early 1980s and Mid-Glamorgan County Council, the WJEC exam board and of course Ysgol Rhydfelen, had ignored or concealed every one of them. Ron Davies had been employed as an education adviser by Mid-Glamorgan Education Authority while John Owen worked at the school.

John Owen was finally arrested and charged and he killed himself – at least it was presumed that he had died by his own hand – just before his trial in Oct 2001. After his death, as more and more former pupils and their parents came forward, all those people who had stood by John Owen swearing that he was innocent admitted gradually that yes, er, we did know. Including his girlfriend. After John Owen was charged, HTV continued working with his material. Menna Richards, a senior exec with BBC Wales, was one of many who attended Owen’s funeral.

I do not think for one second that John Owen’s friends and colleagues should have abandoned him and demanded that he be buried in unconsecrated ground. But they did know what he was doing, they lied their arses off and told the kids who were trying to escape his attentions that they were the liars.

After Karl’s change of career in 2002 and his burning ambition to become Director of the NAHT in Wales, what with him realising how important education was in Wales, people must have been a little surprised when in 2003 Karl was up and off again, after having found himself a new job! On 1 August 2003 the BBC issued a press release stating that Karl had been appointed as the Secretary for BBC Wales. As the mad mother in the horror film ‘Carrie’ said ‘the Devil has returned to his own…’

Here’s what the BBC said:

BBC Wales has named Karl Davies, Director of the National Association of Head Teach
