Happy Birthday Sir!

On account of Carlo being a member of the gwerin and the gwerin containing a great variety and number of people (see post ‘Meet The Gwerin!’), I’m using this, the occasion of Carlo’s 70th, to write a post about just some of the gwerin who have contributed to keeping the show on the road re Dafydd and the gang whom I really should have mentioned by now but who have not had the attention that they deserve through pressure of blogging. Think of it as the equivalent of a medley.

 

Making his first appearance on ‘Service Shenanigans’ is David Vivian Penrose Lewis, 1st Baron Brecon (1905-1976). Lewis was born in 1905, the son of Alfred William and Elizabeth Mary Lewis of Talybont-on-Usk, Breconshire. He was educated at Monmouth School and left at the age of 16 when he left to work with his father, who owned stone quarries and slag merchants. Vivian Lewis made a considerable contribution to the development of the quarrying side of the business, which became the largest and most advanced in Wales.

At a young age, Vivian Lewis showed an interest in local politics when he was elected to Brecon Rural District Council in 1938. He obtained a seat on the Breconshire County Council in 1946, giving up his Rural District Council seat in 1949. Lewis was a Conservative and served as Chairman or President of a number of local Conservative organisations: Talybont-on-Usk Conservative branch, 1935-50; Brecon and Radnor Conservative Association, 1947-51; Brecon and Radnor Young Conservatives, 1949-56. In 1956 Vivian Lewis became Chairman of the Welsh Conservatives.

Vivian Lewis knew Beata Brookes, a much loathed member of Dafydd’s gang who ended up as the Tory MEP for north Wales, 1979-89. Beata came from a wealthy Denbighshire farming family of which the male members were all freemasons. She joined the Young Conservatives at the age of 15 in the mid-1940s and became national Vice-Chairman. After her stint with the Young Conservatives, Beata joined the grown-ups clubs and was elected to the National Union of Conservatives and Unionist Associates. In 1955 she was elected as a Conservative Councillor for Rhyl Urban District Council.

Beata Brookes studied at UCNW and then worked as a social worker for Denbighshire County Council. In 1963 the Conservative Government appointed Brookes to the Welsh Hospitals Board, the authority directly responsible for the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. She remained in that post for eleven years, whereupon Brookes became a member of the new Clwyd Health Authority, which took over the running of the North Wales Hospital. Brookes also served on the Social Services Committee in Clwyd, on the Family Practitioners Committee, on a number of other healthcare bodies and took a leading role in virtually every charidee for disabled people in north Wales.

Beata Brookes was one of the lynch pins in a huge prostitution/trafficking ring run by corrupt professional people which targeted children and vulnerable people in north Wales and she became involved with it at a very young age. Brookes was procuring young people for sex work with the elites by the time of the Profumo Affair and Dafydd and Lucille were involved in it by then as well. Beata Brookes’ attempt to get herself elected as the Tory MP for Clwyd North West in 1983 resulted in a civil war within the Tory Party in north Wales in which Cecil Parkinson at Conservative Central Office did not dare intervene although he was asked to, because everyone involved was on board with Dafydd and the gang. See previous posts. The war resulted in the later leadership challenge to Thatch from Sir Anthony Meyer, who was the key person battling with Brookes. When I first blogged about all this, I presumed that Meyer was trying to remove a people trafficker from circulation. Sadly not, Sir Anthony was a member of the gwerin himself, but he just hated Beata Brookes. Meyer had actually teamed up with Heseltine and was hoping that Heseltine would step forward to challenge Thatch as well if Meyer stood, but Heseltine held back until 1990. The whole situation began to explode as Mary Wynch headed toward the Master of the Rolls and Alison Taylor and I refused to shut up about the criminality in north Wales as well. For further information on Beata Brookes, Anthony Meyer et al, see previous posts.

One of Beata Brookes’s partners in crime was Peter Walker, who like Brookes entered Tory politics as a teenager and in 1958 became the Chairman of the Young Conservatives when he was in his mid-20s. Walker was the Tory MP for Worcester, 1961-92. He served in Ted Heath’s Gov’t as Minister of Housing and Local Gov’t, 1970, Secretary of State for the Environment, 1970–72 and Secretary of State for Trade and Industry, 1972–74. It was under Ted Heath’s Gov’t that Dafydd’s gang’s speciality in rent boys in particular bloomed and the violent, extreme sexual abuse of boys in Bryn Estyn as well as in other institutions in north Wales was wilfully ignored at Gov’t level.

Although Peter Walker was considered a Tory wet, under Thatch he served as Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, 1979-83, Secretary of State for Energy, 1983-87 – during which time he led the charge against the NUM – and Secretary of State for Wales, 1987-90. It was a puzzle to some political commentators as to why Thatch had tolerated the wet Walker in her Cabinet. It was because he knew all about Dafydd’s gang in north Wales and colluded with and concealed their crimes. Walker was at MAFF when UCNW’s Dept of Agriculture, a hive of activity of Dafydd’s gang, effectively bankrupted the College; he used his knowledge of the trafficking gang in Wales that was led by Well-Respected People to shaft the NUM and break the 1984-85 Miners’ Strike and then he continued covering up all the crap – and murders – as Secretary of State for Wales. See previous posts.

Walker and his mate Beata knew the member of the gwerin (see post ‘Meet The Gwerin!’) which was Lord Kenyon, a Tory peer who was President of UCNW, 1947-82. Kenyon’s interests, like Beata’s, were agriculture and healthcare; his son Thomas Tyrell-Kenyon was known to be sexually abusing boys in care in north Wales yet Thomas never faced any charges. Lord Kenyon was Chairman of Clwyd Health Authority, the most senior Freemason in north Wales, a County Councillor, a member of the North Wales Police Authority, a JP and many other things besides. See previous posts. Brookes, Walker and Kenyon knew exactly what was going on in north Wales and ensured that it continued.

Peter Walker was a ‘determined supporter of the hospice movement’, becoming a Patron of St Richard’s Hospice in Worcester when it was founded in 1984. He campaigned for greater NHS support for the hospice movement. During a Lords debate in 2000, Lord Walker stated: “Anyone who visits hospices and meets the volunteers – the people running them and guiding them – will recognise their unique spiritual and compassionate contribution to the health service.” I presume that Walker’s pioneering and leading role in the hospice movement explains why in north Wales, St David’s and St Kentigern Hospices were established and are run by Dafydd’s gang (see previous posts). I have noticed that hospices in other parts of Wales and the wider UK are not always run by the sort of people whom should be left to care for the dying in spite of all the rhetoric about volunteers infused with spirituality. 

Brown had a grandmother who used to cause Brown, Brown’s brother and I much entertainment by telling everyone that she wanted ‘a place in a hospice’, because she thought that hospices were up-market old folks’ homes rather than places where one went to die. We didn’t realise at the time that hospices were run by paedophile gangs and crooks, but there does seem to be a problem. Furthermore, not so long ago St Margaret’s Hospice in Taunton was embroiled in scandal, so it’s just as well that Brown’s gran never got through the doors.

I’m probably missing something obvious but I cannot understand how Peter Walker the People Trafficker found hospices a source of raw meat/blood on which to gorge, but he obviously did. See previous posts for more information on Peter Walker.

 

Vivian Lewis was also well known in mid-Wales as a keen sportsman; he was President and Captain of the Crickhowell cricket team and a rugby player with both the Abergavenny team and Crawshay’s XV, formed by his friend, Captain Geoffrey Crawshay.

Dafydd’s gang’s great friend Sir Tasker Waktins, the ‘Greatest Living Welshman’, war hero, corrupt lawyer and judge, Law Lord, Deputy Lord Chief Justice, President of the Welsh National School of Medicine and many more things (see previous posts), was an enthusiastic rugger bugger throughout his life and was President of the Welsh Rugby Union, 1993-2004. Some rugger buggers are harmless but those who enjoy wrestling-with-each-other-in-oil-while-drunk-and-naked-to-show-that-they-are-not-at-all-gay do cause much trouble and many such specimens are to be found in medical schools. The rugger buggers are very loyal to each other as a result of all the drunken bonding and they have an extensive network which extends outside of the UK. The staff of Bryn Estyn were nearly all associated with Wrexham Rugby Club and the association between Bryn Estyn and the Rugby Club was so close that vacancies at Bryn Estyn were advertised in the Rugby Club. The one female member of staff at Bryn Estyn was also involved with Wrexham Rugby Club.

Capt. Geoffrey Cartland Hugh Crawshay (20 June 1892 – 8 November 1954) was a Welsh soldier, social benefactor and rugger bugger. Geoffrey Crawshay was born in Abergavenny and a descendant of Richard Crawshay, the ironmaster who oversaw the first major expansion of Cyfarthfa Ironworks.

Crawshay was educated at Wellington College and later University College of South Wales (which evolved into Cardiff University) before taking up an apprenticeship at an ironworks in Cwmbran. In 1914 he joined the 3rd Battalions of the Welch Regiment before being transferred to the newly formed Welsh Guards. Crawshay remained with the regiment until 1924 creating many social societies, including the Welch Guard Choir and the regiment rugby team. On leaving the armed forces, Crawshay ran as a Liberal candidate in several south Wales constituencies, but after failing to win a seat he left politics behind and moved on to social work.

Crawshay had always shown a strong connection to the Welsh rugby players living in England, often travelling to Oxford and Cambridge Universities, inviting Welsh undergraduates to breakfast, in an attempt to recruit new rugby talent. In 1922, Crawshay was invited to bring a team to play against Devonport Services RFC. The resulting team banded together as Crawshay’s Welsh RFC, an invitational team who still play to the present day.

Some of Crawshay’s proudest honours were the Eisteddfod prizes won by his military choirs. Crawshay was a member of the Gorsedd of the Bards – as were/are so many of the paedophiles’ friends – with the bardic name ‘Sieffre o Gyfarthfa’ and was a mounted Herald of the Bard. Crawshay was not a Welsh speaker from childhood, so learned the language as an adult to fulfil his bardic duties.

  • Proclaimation Stock Photos & Proclaimation Stock Images ...
  • BBC Wales - Eisteddfod - Guide - What is the Gorsedd?

 

Dafydd boasted a great deal about his links with the Gorsedd. I believe that his bardic name was ‘Twm Hen’ (‘Old Tom’), taken from the masterpiece drawn by a Hergest Unit patient in 1993, ‘Old Tom Meets Pussy Brandt’.

‘We didn’t know.’

Then why did the Hergest patients spend so much of their time taking the piss out of it all???

I even had some of the artwork on the wall of my house. Visitors would come in and roll around laughing, instantly recognising the subjects of the portraits. And on one occasion, Jeff Crowther the nursing officer at the Hergest Unit, observed that Dafydd’s willy should have been drawn as a far smaller appendage and with an incontinence device attached to the end of it. You were an inspiration Jeff, your suggestion was indeed followed…

Sadly Jeff’s own wife, an Angel who later got a job as a lecturer in the Psychology Dept at UCNW, died at the hands of Dafydd’s gang. Jeff’s wife was an enthusiastic Women’s Morris Dancer and after her cremation, her mate Nicky Heinersdorff, a GP in Bethesda, another Morris Dancer, led a Morris Dance in tribute to Jeff’s wife. Heinersdorff was one of those who refused to blow the whistle on Dafydd’s crimes. As was Jeff. Jeff was subsequently threatened with murder by one of Dafydd’s ‘substance abuse patients’ and had to go into hiding. Jeff then left north Wales. Heinersdorff continued to practice as a GP with the gang and some years later, as the on-call out-of-hours GP, refused to go out and see a patient who was having a heart attack, although the man was one of her own patients who had a long history of heart problems. He died. This man lived about 10 mins walk down the hill in Rachub from Heinersdorff’s own house. That man was my former next door neighbour who had, over a period of years, witnessed what had happened to me and others at the hands of Dafydd’s gang. He was denied medical help after the gang had launched their attack on my PhD supervisor, the VC of Bangor University and escalated their attacks on Brown and I after we began publishing about the mental health services.

Nicky Heinersdorff’s victim had numerous connections which had left him with knowledge of gang members. This was well-known because he was friendly and chatty. As a young man he had done a degree in botany at Manchester University, where he had been taught by Peter Greig-Smith, who later relocated to UCNW where Greig-Smith spent years as a Prof in the Dept of Plant Biology, when that Dept was staffed by many friends and relatives of the gang. Greig-Smith was a colleague/friend of the Cambridge botanist Prof Edred Henry Corner, who was Douglas Hurd’s uncle. See post ‘Additional Security Measures’. Hurd was one of the Home Secretaries who colluded with Dafydd and the gang’s criminality. Greig-Smith’s son, also called Peter, was a Top Doctor in Liverpool. The man who was left to die by Nicky Heinersdorff had also for years been a volunteer for clinical trials/experiments in the Dept of Psychology at UCNW/Bangor University.

Ron is buried in Coetmor Cemetary near Rachub, if anyone would like to visit the grave of a man who was rather more intelligent, erudite and had more integrity than the murdering bastards who run north Wales.

Yesterday the Welsh Gov’t announced that it would be giving another £39m to the NHS in Wales to help it cope with ‘winter pressures’.

Ah the doctors they were wonderful! You can’t complain can you!

Indeed not, you’ll soon be dead if you do.

Heinersdorff’s husband was a builder and the Bethesda builders all had a massive scam which they were working in collaboration with the building societies in Bangor, to force people applying for mortgages to undertake expensive, unnecessary work on houses. See post ‘Meet The Gwerin’. I’m fairly sure that the estate agents in Bangor knew what was going on as well. One of the estate agents, Karen, who worked in Reeds and Rains in Bangor at the time later went to do an archaeology degree at Bangor University. Karen stayed on for a PhD and then secured a bit of lecturing work in the Dept where the VC of Bangor University Merfyn held his Chair, which was teaming with gwerin who had close links with Dafydd and the gang, when the gwerin were trying to force Merfyn out of his job.

 

Ron’s widow lives on her old age pension and supplements her income by selling her art work. GPs are some of the most highly paid people in Wales, which is why Heinersdorff only needed to work two or three days a week, yet still had a higher income than virtually anyone else in Rachub. Except for Ioan Bowen Rees of course, the Chief Executive of Gwynedd County Council, who was employing the social workers who neglected and abused their clients in Rachub. Heinersdorff now benefits from the very generous Top Doctors’ pension arrangements. Her pension will be more than the incomes of many people in Rachub who are of working age.

The Crawshay family married into the Huxley family in the early 20th century. The Huxleys were friends with Bertrand Russell and Sir Clough Williams-Ellis’s crowd in the Llanfrothen/Croesor area of what is now south Gwynedd, who knew about – and sometimes utilised the services of – Dafydd’s gang and, before Dafydd arrived on the scene, those who preceded Dafydd, Beata Brookes, Peter Walker etc, such as Gwynne the lobotomist.  See previous posts eg. ‘So Who Was Angry About What?’ and ‘The Village’.

Rupert Crawshay-Williams, the great-grandson of Thomas Henry (T.H.) Huxley, wrote ‘Russell Remembered’, an account of Russell’s life of thinking and socialising and dropping in for afternoon tea with Clough and generally living the life of Riley while Gwynne and Dafydd destroyed the lives of their less privileged neighbours. It is a fascinating book and one which drops the names of many paedophiles’ friends from an earlier era.

Thomas Henry Huxley, known as ‘Darwin’s Bulldog’ for his defence of Darwin’s work, ‘The Origin Of Species’.

 

Julian Huxley, when Fellow of New College, Oxford, 1922:

Sir Julian Huxley (1887–1975) was the first Director-General of UNESCO. He was Secretary of Zoological Society, Co-founder of the World Wildlife Fund and President of the British Eugenics Society.

The Duke of Edinburgh is the Patron of many organisations, including WWF and the Duke of Edinburgh Award. The Duke was the first President of WWF-UK from its foundation in 1961 to 1982, and President of WWF-International from 1981 to 1996. He is now President Emeritus for WWF. 

HRH Carlo’s father was famously promoting the WWF while he enjoyed a bit of hunting.

Get that panda:

Many of the Top Docs who worked at the Maudsley when Dafydd and his colleagues ‘trained’ there were members of the British Eugenics Society.

Julian’s brother Aldous is famous for writing ‘Brave New World’, which when Louise Brown was born in 1978 people stated was ‘about test-tube babies’. At the end of the book the hero in ‘Brave New World’ is found hanging, although Dafydd’s gang don’t feature in the story.

 

Strange but true

 

 

Aldous also experimented with mescaline and wrote ‘The Doors Of Perception’ as a result.

Here are the Doors Of Bryn Estyn; of course no-one can believe what those boys said about what happened to them there because they were just a load of drug addicts:

Aldous Huxley’s only child was Matthew Huxley (1920-2005). Matthew was an author, educator, anthropologist and prominent epidemiologist. His work ranged from promoting universal health care to establishing standards of care for nursing home patients and the mentally ill to investigating the question of what is a socially sanctionable drug. Didn’t he do well!

Andrew Huxley (1917–2012), another of T.H. Huxley’s grandchildren, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for studies of the CNS, especially the activity of nerve fibres. Huxley’s work was carried out on the Atlantic squid, a creature with tentacles that get everywhere. Andrew was the second Huxley to be President of the Royal Society, the first being his grandfather, T.H.Huxley, because being President of the Royal Society, like mental illness, is Genetic. Sir Andrew Huxley’s education and work took place mostly at Trinity College, Cambridge and UCL. That was probably Genetic as well.

Here is the man who inherited such superior strands of DNA:

Jessie, the eldest daughter of T.H. Huxley, married Frederick Waller, who became architect to the Dean and Chapter of Gloucester Cathedral and unofficial architect-in-chief to the Huxley family. Sir Clough Williams-Ellis was an architect, he was memorably described as having built Portmeirion from a few bits and pieces that he found lying about in his back garden.

One of the victims of Dafydd’s gang whom I knew in Bangor in the 1980s and 90s was a man called Trevor Tunstall. Trevor had been one of the architects who had worked on the Bull Ring Centre in Birmingham in the 1960s and knew much about the civic corruption in Birmingham at that time, which was linked to the network of those we know and love in north Wales (see previous posts). People liked to believe that Trevor was a nutter but Trevor was in reality an intelligent man who knew much about the wrongdoing in Bangor University, especially that in the Psychology Dept and Trevor could name names as well, along with details of the crimes. Including Dafydd’s corrupt practices in relation to the abuse of the Army pensions system.

The man who wrecked Trevor’s life and credibility was Dr Tony Francis. Francis sectioned Trevor and detained him in the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. Trevor was then offered a bed in ‘High Pastures’, one of Dafydd’s nursing homes. After admission Trevor noticed much wrong at ‘High Pastures’ and he was also presented with a bill for a great deal of money, far more than he had been led to believe. So Trevor discharged himself. He was subsequently refused all care and treatment after Tony Francis declared that ‘there is nothing that anyone can do for him’. Trevor and I made friends in the late 1980s and began exchanging experiences. Then a police officer in Bangor told Trevor that I was mad and dangerous and told me that Trevor was mad and dangerous. Trevor and I made friends all over again when we realised that we had both been told lies about each other and we exchanged a lot more information. At one point – although I only found out about this later – Trevor visited local solicitors in Bangor, including my solicitor Alwyn Jones and told them that he was very concerned at what was happening to me at the hands of the mental health services. But no-one took any notice because Trevor was mad. Then I told a few people that I was worried about what was happening to Trevor, but no-one took any notice, because I was mad.

Trevor died some years ago after being mad for decades. There are however Bangor grads about who knew Trevor because the students thought that Trevor was a bit of a laugh and used to invite him to their parties and they did not simply dismiss him as mad… I presume that one such Bangor grad is not Danny ‘Slumdog Millionaire London Olympics 2012 Wheel Me Out Whenever Dafydd’s Gang Needs Good PR’ Boyle.

 

Jessie and Fred had a son, Noel Huxley Waller, and a daughter, Oriana Huxley Waller. Noel became Colonel of the 5th Gloucesters and succeeded his father as architect to Gloucester Cathedral.  and had five children from two marriages. He married, first, Helen Durrant, with Anthony, Audrey, Oriana and Letitia as children. Then he married Marion Taylor, with daughters Marion and Priscilla.

Oriana married E.S.P. Haynes, an Eton and Balliol scholar  – although he wasn’t a Fellow of All Souls like all the best people are, he didn’t do too badly because Ted Heath went to Balliol – who became a dedicated divorce law reformer. They had three daughters, one of whom was Renée. Renee married Jerrard Tickell and they had three sons. One son is Crispin Tickell.

Sir Crispin is a member of the gwerin who has served the paedophiles’ friends in his capacity as Chef de Cabinet to Woy Jenkins, when Woy the member of the gwerin who gave long and loyal service to Dafydd’s gang was the President of the European Commission, 1977–1980. Sir Crispin was British Ambassador to Mexico, 1981–1983; Permanent Secretary of the Overseas Development Administration (now DfID), 1984–1987; British Ambassador to the UN; Permanent Representative on the UN Security Council, 1987–1990; Warden of Green College, Oxford, 1990-97. Sir Crispin is Director of the Policy Foresight Programme of the James Martin Institute for Science and Civilization at Oxford University. He is the President of the UK charidee Tree Aid, ‘which enables communities in Africa’s drylands to fight poverty and become self-reliant, while improving the environment’. Sir Crispin has many interests, including the early history of the Earth. Read all about it on this blog Sir Crispin, including the paleo-archaeology of the gwerin. See previous posts for more information re Sir Crispin and Woy.

The daughter of Sir Crispin’s brother Patrick is Dame Clare Tickell, Chief Executive of Action for Children, the new name for NCH (the National Children’s Home) which needed rebranding when it became public that many of those involved with it were paedophiles, including the Patron, George Thomas. In 2011, Clare Tickell’s brother, Adam, was appointed PVC at Birmingham University. Birmingham University grew out of Mason Science College, which Thomas Huxley formally opened in 1880. Professor Adam Tickell became VC at the University of Sussex in 2016.

Now here’s an interesting fact. Merfyn Jones went to Sussex University when he was a student because he took the view that Oxbridge was full of a load of moribund old stuffed shirts who were scratching each others backs. There’s no escape Merfyn, not even to Sussex, they are myriad, they are legion. Furthermore, as someone who left a comment on this blog recently observed, the stuffed blouses are every bit as bad as the stuffed shirts. What we need is Diversity! Let’s have some Wimmin! Now who’s wife/daughter/bedfellow is in need of a job???

Meri Huws, bedfellow of Alun Pugh AM, Andrew Davies AM and, it is said Rhodri Morgan FM. Meri’s highest qualification however is her previous job as a Gwynedd community social worker, while the gang abused the kids in care, including in the Ty’r Felin children’s home in Bangor, on Meri’s patch:

Henry Huxley, the youngest son of T.H. Huxley, trained  as a Top Doc at Bart’s, along with so many others who served as umbrellas for Dafydd and the gang. Henry married Sophy Stobart, an Angel. Sophy was the daughter of a landowning and churchgoing Yorkshire family who were somewhat nervous of a connection with the son of a famous infidel, T.H. having maxed out on being an agnostic. Thus family meetings were held to smooth feelings and avoid difficulties. Everything must have been sorted though, because after the nuptials the couple were set up in London, with a medical practice for Henry.  Henry and Sophy had five children: MarjorieGervasMichaelChristopher and Anne.

A shooting party in Scotland, 1907:

Back row: Henry Huxley; Gervas Huxley. Front row: Anne Huxley; Netty Huxley; Dighton Pollock.

Gervas, the eldest son of Henry Huxley, fought in WW I and received the Military Cross on the first day of Passchendaele for capturing prisoners whose presence showed the arrival of a fresh German Guards Division. In 1939 Gervas was recruited to help set up the wartime Ministry of Information. After the war he sat on the Executive Committee of the British Council. Gervas’s second marriage was to Elspeth Grant (1907–1997) in 1931. Elspeth had grown up in Kenya and was a friend of Joy Adamson.

Joy Adamson’s life and adventures with Elsa the lion were of course immortalised in the film ‘Born Free’. Although things weren’t quite as they were portrayed in ‘Born Free’. Joy Adamson, who had studied medicine, was reputed to be a very confrontational woman who was discussing Uganda with numerous people other than her husband – George Adamson was Joy’s third husband, her second husband had been a botanist – and treating the servants very badly. So much so that the servants really hated her. At one point, in order to raise money for the lions, Joy Adamson offered to have sex with the highest bidder. It’s not as if she was coerced into doing that by Dafydd et al, it was free will, but it was nonetheless the sort of thing that wasn’t mentioned on ‘Blue Peter’. When Joy Adamson was found dead in 1980, the world’s headlines screamed that she’d been killed by her Beloved Lions. It transpired that the Beloved Lions had been framed by the servants who had murdered Joy Adamson because they had had a bellyful and they had constructed a scene to make it look as though it was the lions wot did it. If only Adamson’s servants had employed the services of Dafydd’s gang, with Dr Donald Wayte as the pathologist, Dewi Pritchard Jones as the coroner and Huw Daniel as the judge, those lions would have gone down for that. In 1989, Joy’s husband George was murdered as well, but that was by Somali bandits and it couldn’t be blamed on the Beloved Lions.

The person who starred in ‘Born Free’ was Virginia McKenna:

Virginia McKenna

 

When I worked at St George’s Hospital Medical School, one of the most obnoxious members of staff who enthusiastically joined in the efforts to force me out when I refused to withdraw my complaint about Dafydd and the gang, with whom St George’s had links, was a researcher called Mandy Leigh. Mandy was mates with Virginia McKenna’s family and was involved with their conservation and fund raising activities. Other highlights of Mandy’s biography were her subjecting a visiting Yugoslavian doctor to a hate campaign because the doctor had a hormone disorder which caused a distortion in her voice, so Mandy referred to her as Eaglet and every time the Yugoslavian doctor entered the room Mandy would start making loud croaking noises; and Mandy having sex with Richard Penketh, a Top Doctor, in the lab during working hours, while Penketh gave her the list of names of the other staff that he wanted to shag. Penketh proved to be such a liability in terms of his relentless sexual harassment of staff who were not consenting a la Mandy and his failing of professional exams, that St George’s stated that they would ‘pass him on’, but not within London. They were going to give Penketh to Wales, ‘because that’s where we send all the really bad doctors’. Richard Penketh is indeed now working as a consultant gynaecologist at the University Hospital in Cardiff and he also has a private practice at the Spire Hospital. When the paedophiles’ friend Dr Brian Gibbons was the Welsh Gov’t Health Minister, he gave Penketh an award for excellence.

Ah the doctors they were wonderful! We mustn’t complain!

 

Hey ho Gibbons you worthless turd:

Biographers have sometimes noted the occurrence of mental illness in the Huxley family. T.H. Huxley’s father became “sunk in worse than childish imbecility of mind” and later died in Barming Asylum; brother George suffered from “extreme mental anxiety” and died in 1863 leaving serious debts. Brother James was at 55 “as near mad as any sane man can be”.

T.H. Huxley’s favourite daughter, Mady (Marion), who became the first wife of artist John Collier, was troubled by mental illness for years. By her mid-twenties it was becoming clear that she was not sane and was getting steadily worse (the diagnosis is uncertain). Huxley persuaded Jean-Martin Charcot, one of Freud’s teachers, to examine her with a view to treatment; but soon Mady died of pneumonia.

As a young apprentice to a physician, T.H. Huxley was taken to watch a postmortem dissection. Afterwards he sank into a ‘deep lethargy’ and though he ascribed this to dissection poisoning, Cyril Bibby and others have suggested that emotional shock precipitated a clinical depression. On the third voyage of HMS Rattlesnake in 1848, a voyage mostly to New Guinea and the NE Australian coast, including the Great Barrier Reef, Huxley experienced months of serious depression.

T.H. Huxley had periods of depression at the end of 1871, alleviated by a cruise to Egypt and again in 1873, this time coincident with expensive building work on his house. His friends were alarmed and his Top Doctor ordered three months rest. Darwin picked up his pen, and with Tyndall’s help raised £2,100 for him – an enormous sum. The money was partly to pay for his recuperation, and partly to pay his bills. Huxley set out in July to the Auvergne and his wife and son Leonard joined him in Cologne, while the younger children stayed at Down House in Emma Darwin’s care.

Finally, in 1884 T.H. Huxley sank into another depression, and this time it precipitated his decision to retire in 1885, at the age of only 60. Today’s Top Doctors are usually go earlier than that. Huxley resigned the Presidency of the Royal Society in mid-term, the Inspectorship of Fisheries and his Chair as soon as he decently could and took six months’ leave. His pension was a fairly handsome £1500 a year.

This is enough to indicate the way depression (or perhaps a moderate bipolar disorder) interfered with T.H. Huxley’s life, but he was able to function well at other times.

The problems continued sporadically into the third generation. Two of Leonard Huxley’s sons suffered serious depression: Trevenen committed suicide in 1914 and Julian suffered a number of breakdowns. Of course, there are many family members for whom no information one way or the other is available, but both the talent and the mental problems would have interested Francis Galton: “The direct result of this enquiry is… to prove that the laws of heredity are as applicable to the mental faculties as to the bodily faculties”.

No matter how rough the Huxleys felt or to what degree their troubles were Genetic, they at least did not encounter Dafydd et al. Had they done so, there would have been no books, voyages to New Guinea or Nobel prizes from any of them.

 

 

I will now return to Vivian Lewis and Brecon and Radnorshire after that detour.

During the early 1950s, the Conservative Gov’t resisted the growing pressure for the establishment of the post of Secretary of State for Wales. The MP for Brecon and Radnorshire, 1945-70, was the Labour member Tudor Elwyn Watkins, Baron Watkins (9 May 1903-2 November 1983), who was a supporter of the Parliament for Wales campaign, along with the Windbags’ and paedophiles’ friend and member of the gwerin, Lord Cledwyn, the Labour MP for Anglesey, 1951-79 (see previous posts eg. The Cradle Of Filth’ and ‘How Much Greater Is A Man than A Sheep?’).

A tablet at the Brecon Beacons Mountain Centre, with references to Lord Cledwyn and Tudor Watkins:

Watkins was born at Abercrave and worked as a miner from 1917 until 1925. He served as a Labour Party constituency agent in Brecon and Radnorshire, 1925-33 and was the General Secretary to the Breconshire Association of Friendly Societies, 1937-48. Watkins was also a supporter of CND. He visited the Soviet Union in 1961 and Patagonia in 1965. This member of the gwerin was created a life peer in May 1972. Lord Watkins died on 2 November 1983. He was cremated and his ashes buried in the churchyard of St David’s Church, Llanfaes, Brecon. His wife’s ashes are also buried there.

 

The Brecon area, like Snowdonia, was/is a favourite location to which children were/are taken for outward bound activities, weekends, holidays etc. Kids in care are often considered to benefit from such activities and there were problems in the Brecon area with those children being targeted and molested. On 6 January 1976, Anthony David Taylor was convicted at Talgarth Magistrates Court on two offences of indecent assault upon boys staying at the Bryn Alyn Community. He was fined £20 for each offence. The conviction of Taylor will have only been the tip of the iceberg. A number of people who were involved with the abuse of children or concealed it, including Baroness Eirene White, the Labour MP for East Flintshire, 1950-70, Adrianne Jones, who was one of the advisers to the Waterhouse Inquiry and had served as Director of Social Services in a number of authorities which were sending kids in care to children’s homes in north Wales including the City of Birmingham and George Melly, who offered underaged boys money in return for sex when he stayed in Bangor after a gig at Theatre Gwynedd, all retired to the Brecon area. See previous posts.

 

Churchill created a post of Minister for Welsh Affairs to be held by the post of Home Secretary. Harold Macmillan altered this arrangement in January 1957 when he appointed Henry Brooke as Minister for Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs. Around the same time, the Council for Wales and Monmouthshire recommended the appointment of a Secretary of State for Wales, with executive responsibilities similar to those of the Secretary of State for Scotland. The Council’s recommendation was supported by the opposition parties and by a number of Welsh Conservatives.

By 1957 the weekend gatherings at Cliveden, the family seat of Bill Astor, 3rd Viscount Astor, were an established tradition. The gatherings involved an interesting mix, including call girls from disadvantaged backgrounds – some of whom were still in their teens and had been coerced into sex work when they were as young as 15 – members of the Royal Family, Gov’t Ministers and it is alleged Russian spies. Baroness Jean Trumpington, who’s friend Sarah aka Sally Norton was dumped by Bill Astor in 1953 after producing the required heir, was a regular at Cliveden. See post ’95 Glorious Years!’. It was Trumpers who, in her capacity as Thatcher’s Health Minister, appointed Jimmy Savile to the management task force of Broadmoor in the late 1980s. See post ‘Socio-Political Context Of The North Wales Mental Health Services In The 1980s’ and ‘A Pretty Classy Piece Of Operation’. After Bill Astor ditched Sally Norton, he married Phillipa Hunloke, but he soon moved on and in 1960 he married Bronwen Alun-Pugh, the daughter of a Welsh judge. Bronwen was a former model and faced accusations that she and her friends were little more than Welsh slappers who had the goal of bagging rich men.

If Bronwen was an upmarket slapper, that particular idea had probably been suggested to Bronwen during her formative years by her Elders and Betters. Bronwen went to school in Dolgellau, the town in which Ioan Bowen Rees, the CEO of Gwynedd County Council when Dafydd’s gang ran riot in the kids homes, grew up and went to school. Ioan’s dad was the English master of the grammar school in Dolgellau and there was just one years difference in age between Ioan and Bronwen. Ioan Bowen Rees’s mum had been one of the first students to study at UCNW – UCNW paved the way by accepting women students from it’s very establishment before most universities did. Ioan’s father also went to UCNW and held office in the Students Union while he was there. For more information on Bronwen, see post ‘In Memoriam – Bronwen, Lady Astor’.

 

Henry Brooke, Baron Brooke of Cumnor (9 April 1903 – 29 March 1984) served as Macmillan’s Chief Secretary to the Treasury and Paymaster-General, 1961–62 and – following the “Night of the Long Knives” — as Home Secretary, 1962–64. So Henry was at the centre of the action when the Profumo Affair erupted, covering Macmillan’s Gov’t and his class in general with crap. Henry Brooke was a classmate of Rab Butler – another mate of Trumpers, from Trumpers’ days in Cambridge when Rab was Master of Trinity College, Cambridge, 1965-77 – at Marlborough College. Brooke then went to Balliol and taught there for one year.

Brooke worked at a Quaker settlement for the unemployed in the Rhondda, 1927–28. After a year on ‘The Economist’, Brooke became one of the original members, and subsequently Deputy Chairman, of the Conservative Research Dept, 1929–37, under the Chairmanship of Neville Chamberlain.  By the 1960s, the Conservative Research Dept was notorious for being staffed by predatory gay men and some of them had been employed there for years.

Brooke served as the Tory MP for Lewisham West, 1938-45. He was elected to the London County Council in 1946 and served as Conservative leader on the Council until 1951, continuing to serve on the Council and the Hampstead Borough Council until 1955. Previous posts have mentioned how numerous people who sat on the London County Council colluded with the abuse of children, including Jim Callaghan’s wife Audrey. Brooke was the last Deputy Chairman of the Southern Railway before nationalisation, 1946-48. Brooke returned to Parliament in 1950, and entered Churchill’s Gov’t in 1954 as Financial Secretary to the Treasury, serving under Rab Butler and Macmillan when they were Chancellors of the Exchequer.

Brooke continued in this job until 1957, when he became Minister of Housing and Local Gov’t and Minister of Welsh Affairs in Macmillan’s Gov’t, entering the Cabinet.

 

As Minister for Welsh Affairs, Henry Brooke caused anger throughout Wales through his crucial support of Liverpool Council’s bid to secure Westminster’s approval of an Act of Parliament to flood Cwm Tryweryn in Meirionydd – in order to create a reservoir to provide water for the city of Liverpool – thereby by-passing Welsh local authority opposition to the scheme. The flooding of Cwm Tryweryn resulted in the villagers of Capel Celyn being forcibly removed from their homes because the village was going underwater. There was a great deal of bad feeling and much was made by members of Plaid that Capel Celyn was a Welsh speaking village. Dafydd was involved with the Tryweryn campaign. Dafydd was a medical student at Liverpool at the time and he forged links with Irish Republican activists, travelling to Ireland to visit them, to gain knowledge and experience of violent methods of activism, including the use of explosives. By that time, Dafydd had found out that young people from Wales were being exported to England as sex workers and he began cultivating the company of corrupt professional people in Liverpool who would later assist him when he cranked up the people trafficking in a big way after he had qualified as a Top Doctor.

Nice work GMC, a people trafficking drug dealer who was mates with armed terrorists and you stood and watched it all for decades despite hundreds of complaints, police investigations, Public Inquiries…

Here’s Ioan of the Gwerin:

Largely in response to the protests over Tryweryn, Henry Brooke subsequently attracted investment to Wales, including such projects as the Severn Bridge, the steelworks at Llanwern, and the Heads of the Valleys Road.

Can anyone see North Wales hidden in the picture? Because I can’t. But then if the north Wales economy had been anything to boast about in the 1970s, 80s and 90s, Dafydd and the gang would not have been able to reign supreme as a result of them holding all of the scarce professional jobs in the region.

Some critics have maintained that Brooke was one of the worst Home Secretaries of the twentieth century. In the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Philip Knightley-Smith wrote, of Brooke’s two years at the Home Office: ““His declared priorities were to confront the crime wave and to reduce prison over-crowding by a new building programme: but his deliberative pragmatism was ill-suited to his new responsibilities…He was involved in one rumpus after another, and became widely reviled.”

Brooke was plunged into controversy at the very beginning of his term of office because of his initial reaction to the case of Carmen Bryan, a 22-year-old Jamaican woman and first offender, who pleaded guilty to petty larceny (shoplifting goods worth £2) and was recommended for deportation by Paddington Magistrates Court. Brooke’s acquiescence to the court order and Carmen’s six-week detention in Holloway Prison pending deportation was seen widely as both unnecessary and unjust. Neither bail or the opportunity to appeal were offered directly to Carmen. Standing firm, Brooke told the Commons, “I think it would be a great act of injustice if I were to stand in the way of her returning to Jamaica. I am not prepared to look at this case again”. Parliamentary outrage and the media spotlight combined to force a speedy review where, four days later, Brooke recanted, freeing Bryan and allowing her to remain. Deportations for misdemeanours were subsequently suspended. There had been more than eighty recommendations for deportation in the seven weeks following the Conservative Gov’ts introduction of the Commonwealth Immigrants Act (1962).

Now, Sir Henry has made it clear, you’ll be back on the next boat, although there may be a little weekend job for you at Cliveden if you’re interested…

Brooke received unprecedented criticism on ‘That Was The Week That Was’ on the BBC in 1962–63, which called him “the most hated man in Britain” and ended a mock profile of him with the phrase “If you’re Home Secretary, you can get away with murder”. You can if you are a Top Doctor as well, as Graham Chapman, who worked with and was friendly with many of those who starred in TWTWTW, knew by witnessing what his colleagues at Bart’s got up to.

Chapman came from Leicester where his father was a policeman. By the time that Chapman was growing up, the abuse ring in Leicester that later linked up to Dafydd et al in north Wales was established.

 

Brooke was also involved in the passage of various new anti-drug laws, including ones banning possession of amphetamines and the growing of cannabis. The hippies in Bethesda always maintained that it was Henry Brooke’s mishandling of drugs legislation that caused such problems with class A drugs and criminalised so many harmless people. Dafydd however did really well out of it, as the hippies used to point out. After all, they knew what Dafydd was doing.

As the final arbiter in death penalty cases Brooke was the last Home Secretary to allow a death sentence to go ahead.

Sir Alec Douglas-Home kept Brooke in office as Home Secretary when he became PM in October 1963 and his last 12 months in office, which saw the introduction of the Police Act 1964 and the creation of a Royal Commission on Crime and Punishment, attracted much less controversy.

Brooke lost his seat in 1966. He was created a life peer as Baron Brooke of Cumnor in July 1966 and acted as a Conservative front bench spokesman in the House of Lords until 1970. The onset of Parkinson’s disease then led him to retire gradually from public life.

Brooke married Barbara Muriel, the daughter of the Rev Alfred Matthews, a Welsh Minister in 1933. After having started a family, Brooke entered politics in 1948, when she became a member of Hampstead Council, a seat that she held until 1965; she also was a Joint Vice-Chairman of the Conservative Party from 1954-64. She had also been active in a number of health organisations in her lifetime, including being a member of the North West Metropolitan Regional Hospital Board from 1954–66, Chair of The Queen’s Institute of District Nursing from 1961–71 and the North London Hospital Management Committee from 1963-66. Babs knew about Dafydd and the gang and a great deal more.

In 1964, Babs was made a life peer as Baroness Brooke of Ystradfellte. See previous posts for details of the many roles and activities in which Babs helped Dafydd and the gang out.

Lord Henry Brooke of Cumnor died in 1984, aged 80. One biographer has written of him: “He was a quiet, friendly, honest and steadfast man, who was regarded by his detractors as a cruel, deceitful, ogre. His gentle, affectionate memoir of his father Leslie Brooke and Johnny Crow (1982) belies the public’s view of him”.

The dreadful Babs died in September 2000, aged 92. She clung onto life until the Waterhouse Report had been safely published and the cover-up completed.

Here is Babs and she’s not going to listen to any nonsense about that nice Dr Jones, who has been very good to those boys, no-one else would have bothered with them:

Whether Gentle Henry and Babs were any relation of Professor Oliver Brooke, the paedophile paediatrician at St George’s Hospital Medical School who was rescued from prison in the summer of 1987 by Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane himself, I do not know. But Henry and Babs did have four children:

  • Peter Leonard Brooke, later the Lord Brooke of Sutton Mandeville, who was the Tory MP for the Cities of London and Westminster, 1977-2001 and served in the Cabinet under Thatch and John Major. Among other posts, Brooke was Chairman of the Conservative Party, 3 July 1987 – 24 July 1989 and Secretary of State for N Ireland, 24 July 1989 – 10 April 1992. Brooke did of course conceal the crimes of Dafydd et al and the rest of the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See previous posts for the full lowdown on Brooke.
  • Sir Henry Brooke, (died 2018), a judge and Lord Justice of Appeal. Sir Henry was a member of Inner Temple, as was Lord Elizabeth Butler-Sloss, who concealed the extent of the crimes of Dafydd and the gang’s associates in Cleveland (see post ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas And The Culprits Were Named’) and was the sister of Lord Michael Havers, who was Attorney General under Thatch and actively blocked the prosecution of ‘VIP’ paedophiles, including the diplomat Sir Peter Hayman. Sir Simon Hughes, who went to school in Brecon, qualified as a barrister and spent many happy years as the Lib Dem MP for Bermondsey ignoring the trafficking of numerous children by Southwark Borough Council to children’s homes in north Wales over years, was a member of Inner Temple. Southwark was on the doorstep of the Maudsley, which was full of Dafydd’s mates who were covering up for the gang in north Wales. One of those was Dr Jim Birley, who also established community programmes for psych patients in Southwark. Birley was mates with Lord David Ennals, who for years was a leading light in MIND while Dafydd was involved with that organisation. Ennals also concealed the crimes of Dafydd et al when he was a Minister in the Home Office, a Minister in the DHSS and as Secretary of State for the DHSS. Ennals’ brother Martin was Secretary-General of Amnesty International and had links to numerous people who colluded with Dafydd, as does David Ennals son Sir Paul Ennals. See previous posts eg. ‘The Battle For the Labour Party’s Soul’.

On 3 December 1957, Macmillan’s Cabinet agreed to appoint a Minister of State for Welsh Affairs and to develop further measures of administrative devolution. Vivian Lewis was appointed Minister of State for Welsh Affairs on 12 December 1957 and he was created a hereditary peer as Baron Brecon of Llanfeugan, Brecknock, on 30 January 1958.

With Beata Brooke’s mate Vivian Lewis as Minister of State to the Cabinet Minister with responsibility for Welsh Affairs and Lewis in the Lords as well, I imagine that it was party time.

Brace yourself this Party season with a Healthy Party ...

 

The astonishment which greeted the appointment was recorded by ‘The Economist’: “How an obscure Brecon County Councillor, visiting London (in his tweed suit) for the University Rugger match, was called to Downing Street to be made a baron and a Minister of State, represents one of the most curious political appointments since Caligula made his horse a consul. Mr. Lewis, the gentleman concerned, has shown engaging frankness about the unexpectedness of his appointment; he owes it, of course, to the fact that he combines some Welsh mystique, and probably the organising ability that often accompanies that mystique, with the very rare attribute of also voting Conservative.”

I can’t see much wrong with wearing a tweed suit, that’s a matter of personal choice and as the old gits on ‘The Economist’ knew, people of that era in rural areas always wore a tweed suit if they were dressing up in their best, no-one’s going to bother with a top hat and tails in Brecon. Had those on ‘The Economist’ spent less time sneering at the bumpkins and more time doing their jobs, they’d have known that the man from Brecon in a tweed suit had been given a peerage because he was a member of the gwerin’s trafficking ring which supplied Welsh wenches (and Welsh boys) to the Royals, Gentry and Gov’t Ministers of England and furthermore he knew where the bodies were buried.

Besides Vivian Lewis’s obscurity, the other objections against the new Minister were that his role was imprecise and that he lacked executive power. He was to assist Henry Brooke in bringing forward specific devolution of tasks from central Gov’t and he was to be based in Cardiff. The appointment did not satisfy the Council for Wales and Monmouthshire which produced a further report on 18 April 1958; in a tart reply, the PM commented “Nor do I share the view of the panel – indeed, it would surprise me to learn that the people of Wales generally shared it – that the new post of Minister of State for Welsh Affairs occupied by Lord Brecon is valueless to Wales”.

Indeed, the sex workers of Wales had never had it so good. There were excellent opportunities for them in England.

The Lord Boothby
Robertbootby.jpg

Bob Boothby was a Tory politician who had an affair with Harold Macmillan’s wife, Dorothy. Bob Boothby had affairs with a great many other people as well and utilised the services of rent boys. Boothby was friends with Ronnie and Reggie Kray.

 

The risks were high for the sex workers in the event of exposure, as Christine Keeler discovered. In the wake of the Profumo Affair, Christine was the only person who went to prison. She was 19, had been sexually assaulted by her mother’s male friends when she was 15 and when she was 17 had given birth to a baby who had lived only days. Shortly before the media explosion, Christine had gone into hiding because she was so frightened of one of the men who was an associate of the criminal gang who had introduced her to the Cliveden set. She was also attacked at home. Keeler later pleaded guilty to charges of perjury before Sir Anthony Hawke, the Recorder of London and in December 1963 was sentenced to nine months’ imprisonment. Hawke was a member of Middle Temple, as was Ronnie Waterhouse. Hawke didn’t die until 1964, so Ronnie will have known him. The Home Secretary when Christine was jailed was one Henry Brooke.

The other casualty of the Profumo Affair was Stephen Ward, an osteopath who really was screwed over by those who had asked him to provide them with young women. The official story is that Ward killed himself, but he was certainly helped on his way in that endeavour by some Top Docs. See previous posts.

Jack Profumo took a great deal of flak and was on the receiving end of a lot of How Very Dare Yous, but he subsequently rehabilitated himself by spending many years Working For The Poor Of The East End as a result of his involvement with Toynbee Hall. With which more than a few paedophiles’ friends were involved. By the time that Jack Profumo was doing his charidee work dahn in the East End, Dafydd’s gang were operating in the area.

‘The Guardian’ never published a word about any of it, although they assisted Dafydd’s gang when the gang was in need of help in the early 1990s by publishing fallacious allegations about a Bangor University sociologist who had spilt the pints of the gwerin.

The Lord Boothby

In his first month in Ministerial office, Lord Brecon had visited north Wales three times; on the third occasion, he undertook an analysis of the problems facing the slate quarrying industry and on the same day found himself both 1000 ft up a mountain as he toured the Dinorwic Quarry and 1000 ft underground at the Oakley Quarry in Blaenau Ffestiniog.

After all, Lord Brecon’s family business Owned Quarrymen.

Within a few months of his appointment, Lord Brecon was involved in the establishment of the Development Corporation for Wales, which was launched by Lord Brecon and Sir Miles Thomas, the Corporation’s Chairman, on 17 September 1958. The corporation was an organization of Welsh industrialists, ‘free from Gov’t control and finance’. These activities reflected Brecon’s background in industry and led to little comment. Why are we not surprised? When Lord Brecon was appointed, he agreed, in answer to public criticism, that he did not speak Welsh but understood a certain amount. He promised that he would take steps to ensure that he was more confident in his knowledge of the language.

Lord Brecon’s appointment was made against the background of the controversy over the Secretary of State, which led to a number of resignations from the Council for Wales and Monmouthshire and the ensuing emasculation of that body and of the very bitter controversy over Tryweryn. In view of this, it is surprising that he did not anticipate the controversy that would arise over the appointment of another member of the gwerin, Mrs Rachel Jones, as the BBC’s Welsh Governor.

Rachel Jones was the wife of the Dean of Brecon and she had spent a number of years in Australia where her husband held positions in Perth; she had little knowledge of Welsh affairs or the Welsh language. The Dean of Brecon and his wife were close friends of Lord and Lady Brecon. There was a great public row over the appointment, which gave both Brooke and Brecon a very uncomfortable time; a joke reported that the BBC now stood for Brooke, Brecon Club. Mrs Jones also bagged the job of Chairman of the Broadcasting Council for Wales.

Lord Brecon served as Minister of State to Ministers for Welsh Affairs Henry Brooke 1957-1961; briefly to Charles Hill 1961-62; and to Sir Keith Joseph, 1962-64.

Lord Charles Hill was the Lord Haw-Haw of Top Doctors. Charles Hill was born in Islington and was educated at St Olave’s Grammar School in Southwark. He won a scholarship to Trinity College, Cambridge and continued his medical studies at the London Hospital. Hill became Deputy Medical Officer of Oxford in 1930. He became Assistant Secretary of the BMA from 1932 and was Secretary, 1944-50.

During WW II, Charles Hill served as the “Radio Doctor” became part of the Ministry of Food’s programme, “Kitchen Front”, every morning from 1942. This was a disguise for propaganda on behalf of the Gov’t.

Hill was the BMA’s Secretary when the NHS was introduced in 1948. He was one of the Top Docs who held Nye Bevan over a barrel and ensured that GPs did not simply become salaried employees.

Hill was elected as the Conservative and National Liberal MP for Luton in 1950. Hill was appointed Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food in 1951. He became the Postmaster-General (a non-Cabinet Ministerial position with responsibilities that included broadcasting) in 1955; during his period in office Hill publicly berated the BBC for its reporting of the Suez Crisis. In May 1956, Hill attempted to formalise the existing agreement by which discussions or statements about matters before Parliament could not be broadcast in the fortnight preceding any debate (the ‘fourteen-day rule’). However, the Suez Crisis rendered this policy unworkable in practice and the government agreed to its suspension at the end of the year. Hill, who had been uneasy about the implications of the rule for freedom of expression, was relieved.

From 1957 to 1961, Hill was Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and from 1961 he was Minister of Housing and Local Gov’t and Welsh Affairs but he lost his place in the Cabinet in the ‘Night Of The Long Knives’ reshuffle in 1962.

Hill was appointed as the Chairman of the ITA in 1963, where he continued his hostile attitude towards the BBC. He was created a life peer in 1963. In 1967, Hill announced that all the ITV contracts were all to be re-advertised, because he was concerned about the large profits being made by the major companies and their lack of regional identity. This resulted in a radical reorganisation of the ITV network.

Hill succeeded Lord Normanbrook  as the Chairman of the BBC Governors, 1967–1972, having been appointed by PM Harold Wilson, to “sort out” the Corporation. His appointment as BBC Chairman surprised the BBC’s Governors and several resigned. Wilson encouraged Lord Hill to be active in Editorial decisions. Hill had a difficult relationship with the DG of the BBC, Hugh Greene and he eventually forced Greene to resign in 1969. Greene later described Hill as a “vulgarian”. He had a quieter relationship with Greene’s successor, Charles Curran. Hill retired from the BBC in 1972 and died in 1989, aged 85.

Hill married Marion Spencer Wallace, with whom he had two sons and three daughters. See previous posts for more information on Charles Hill.

Harold Wilson was well aware of the Westminster Paedophile Ring and the role that Dafydd et al were playing in it. Wilson also knew that George Thomas was a child molester but Thomas was a real crowd puller for the Labour Party in south Wales, so Wilson remained on excellent terms with him and used to lead his election campaigns with Thomas in south Wales. Wilson utilised the Top Doctors to the maximum in concealing the Westminster Paedophile Ring, he knew that they were the key to keeping the lid on it.

Keith Joseph also concealed the Westminster Paedophile Ring. Joseph’s seat was in Leeds at Jimmy Savile HQ and he knew that there were strong links between the gang in Yorkshire and Dafydd’s gang in north Wales. When Joseph’s was in the DHSS in Heath’s Cabinet, he appointed as his adviser Barbara Kahan, a senior social worker who had concealed abuse in Oxfordshire and in other regions before that.

 

Lord Brecon remained in the Gov’t when Sir Alec Douglas-Home became PM in 1963. With Keith Joseph’s assistance, Lord Brecon promoted, with a view to the investiture of the Birthday Boy the Prince of Wales, the appointment of Major Francis Jones as Wales Herald Extraordinary.

When he left office in 1964, Lord Brecon resumed a directorship with Television Wales and West Ltd. Lord Wyn Roberts who spent years as a Minister in the Welsh Office covering up Dafydd’s doings, was the son of a Nonconformist Minister and Wyn spent his early career as a journo with TV stations covering Wales and the West Country. See post ‘The Cradle Of Filth’.

Lord Brecon joined the board of Powell Duffryn, which had purchased his family’s firms in January 1964 and took on other company appointments. Lord Elwyn-Jones’s brother Idris Jones worked as Research Manager for Powell Duffryn. Idris was also a rugby enthusiast. While at college Idris was captain of the rugby team at Aberystwyth and a member of Cambridge University Rugby XV. He played flanker for London-Welsh and Llanelli Rugby Clubs and also for the Barbarians. He played for Wales against EnglandFranceIreland and Scotland and was captain on one occasion. Idris was a prominent active member of Welsh societies in London and was Vice-President of University College of Wales, Aberystwyth, 1963-71Idris Jones died in 1971, a Bachelor who had not been blessed with children. See post ‘Lest We Forget’ for more gen on Idris.

Lord Brecon was one of the four Assistant Commissioners for Wales, appointed on 9 September 1969 to assist the Commission on the Constitution in the examination of regional problems. From December 1972 to the summer of 1973, Lord Brecon was nominated to the Conservative delegation to the European Parliament where he was placed on the Economic and Transport Committees. In the European Parliament, he raised questions on Welsh matters.

Lord Brecon was Chairman of the Welsh National Water Development Authority from 1973 to his death, a period which included the very dry summer of 1976. In this role, he relied heavily on the Authority’s officials.

The gwerin who assist Dafydd and the gang are strangely attracted to the water industry. T.M . Hadyn Rees, a friend of Ronnie Waterhouse and the man who was the Chief Exec of Clwyd County Council while if anything the abuse of children in care of Clwyd was even worse than it was in Gwynedd, was Chairman of the Welsh Water Authority, 1977-82. Hadyn Rees was a member of the Severn Barrage Committee, 1978-81 and a member of the National Water Council, 1977-82. Ann Beynon, another member of the gwerin who is a UCNW graduate and sat on the Council of UCNW for years, is Senior Advisor for Welsh Affairs for Severn Trent Water. Ann Beynon was previously BT’s Director for Wales. As a student Ann was a leader of NUS Wales and established a Gay Branch in NUS Wales. Ann is married to Leighton Andrews, who is a former AM and served as the Welsh Gov’ts Education Minister.

Lord Brecon aka Vivian Lewis was a man of energy ‘with a strong sense of public duty’. He married Mabel Helen, the daughter of John McColville of Abergavenny, on 19 April 1933; they had two daughters. He died at his home, Greenhill, Cross Oak, Brecon on 10 October 1976 and his barony became extinct.

Lord Brecon’s funeral service was held at Llanfeugan Church. His memorial service was attended by John Morris, the Secretary of State for Wales and by leading figures in the public life of Wales and in the Conservative Party was held at Brecon Cathedral on 23 October 1976.

 

Lord John Morris has been one of the bestest friends to Dafydd and the gang that they could have ever asked for. Morris is an Aber and Cambridge graduate who worked as a barrister on the corrupt Chester and Wales Circuit. Morris was a member of Gray’s Inn, as was Dafydd’s big umbrella Sir William Mars-Jones, a friend and senior Chambers colleagues of Ronnie Waterhouse. John Morris was Labour MP for Aberavon, 1959-2001 and Secretary of State for Wales, 1974-79, under Wilson and then Callaghan. Morris is such a useful member of the gwerin that when Miranda became PM, he got Morris out of mothballs and appointed him Attorney General for England and Wales and for N Ireland, 1997-99. While the Waterhouse Inquiry took place…

Lord Morris was President of the London Welsh Trust, which runs the London Welsh Centre, Gray’s Inn Road, 2001-08. He is also a Council member of HRH Carlo’s initiative The Prince’s Trust.

You get to dress up in some impressive gear when you’re a member of the gwerin:

Lady Brecon (8 May 1910 – 4 September 2005) was active in the public life of Breconshire. She followed her husband as a member of the Brecon Rural District Council and was both a Justice of the Peace and a High Sheriff in the county. Lady Brecon was appointed C.B.E. in 1964 for political and public services in Wales.

Lord and Lady Brecon had a daughter who was a member of the gwerin who married another member of the gwerin, whom I shall blog about soon…

 

 

Now here’s something interesting. When Carlo attended a special ceremony at Bangor University some years ago, the gwerin seemed to believe that Carlo was going to Bangor to depose Merfyn, the VC. I don’t know why the gwerin had drawn this conclusion but they most definitely had and that was why some of the gwerin turned up to the ceremony. A member of the gwerin was good enough to tell me that ‘if Merfyn Jones’s blood is going to be on the carpet, I want to be there to see it’. This member of the gwerin was a member of the Council of Revolutionaries who had been meeting regularly with Professor Eric Sunderland – a previous Principal of UCNW and a well-camouflaged paedophiles’ friend himself who had saved the gang’s bacon on many occasions – and were imploring Eric to Get Rid Of Merfyn. I attended the ceremony too, not because I wanted to see Carlo do anything untoward to Merfyn but because Events at Bangor University were sufficiently entertaining to usually be worth attending, the gwerin could always be relied upon to provide the Cabaret. They’d have probably burst into a rendering of ‘Tomorrow Belongs To Me’ if they thought that they could have got away with it.

Tomorrow belongs to me Cabaret - YouTube

 

However, there was no blood on the carpet at or indeed after the ceremony. Merfyn made a nice speech about the architecture of Top College and didn’t say anything to Carlo like ‘is it true that you murdered your wife?’ or ‘why did you tell Alison Taylor that you couldn’t get involved when she wrote to you in the late 1980s and told you that children in care in north Wales were being horrifically abused?’ or even ‘why did the whole damn lot of you go after Sally Baker and her friends when she and Brown complained about Gwynne the lobotomist who was employed in UNCW for years while you were Chancellor?’

The gwerin departed disappointed. Interestingly enough, the member of the gwerin who told everyone that he had turned up in the hope of seeing Merfyn’s blood on the carpet had told everyone for years that as a young man Carlo had been ‘AC/DC’ and that this was widely known. HOW anyone without first hand experience would ever have known I don’t know, but there you are Carlo, that’s what was being said. The member of the gwerin in question knew a great deal about Dafydd’s gang because his father had been a Top Doctor at the C&A Hospital in Bangor and had helped facilitate it.

That is a fact and a very interesting one.

 

There is something that Merfyn could have asked Carlo though. He could have asked him why on earth the person who was chosen to carry out the inquests on Di and Dodi, Sir Thomas Scott Gillespie Baker, had never carried out an inquest before in his life and had a particularly strong and sordid link to Dafydd’s gang, precisely his role in the Susan Brooke case.

In 1995, a woman called Susan Brooke hit the headlines. Susan Brooke had abducted a new baby from Ysbyty Glan Clwyd. The baby was discovered after 20 hours and the case never gained the UK-wide media attention that other cases of abduction of newborns gained during the late 80s/90s. In most of those cases, women who had abducted babies were given probation or were detained under the Mental Health Act. There was also a growing body of research suggesting that women who abducted new babies did not fit the profiles of ‘thieves’, but were often deeply distressed, had lost babies themselves through miscarriage, stillbirth or cot death and that treating them as wilful criminals was cruel and unproductive. There had been a TV documentary screened in the late 80s that explored the whole syndrome and featured a young woman who had I think miscarried, attempted suicide and then taken a baby from a maternity ward. She had been imprisoned by a judge who told her that she was a ‘wicked woman’. The case caused a furore and various practitioners were wheeled out to explain that this was a serious misjudgement. It was at this point that women who abducted babies began to be treated more humanely.

But not if they lived in north Wales. When Susan Brooke was discovered with the baby, she broke down, becoming incredibly distressed and stating that she only took the baby because she was frightened that her husband was going to leave her. It transpired that she had been in a mess for quite sometime, had been sterilised after having three children but had for some reason faked another pregnancy. It was claimed in Court that she had ‘duped’ her husband with a ‘fantasy pregnancy’ for 14 months no less, who had then demanded that she produce a baby or he would ‘drag’ her up to the hospital himself. At this point she stole the newborn.

The trial of Susan Brooke took place at Chester Crown Court. The Chester Crown Court where I faced trial on charges of numerous breaches of an injunction – which had itself been acquired on the basis of perjury – when Gwynedd Social Services attempted to imprison me. See post ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’. That happened to me in Chester Crown Court in 1990. My documents demonstrate that Gwynedd Social Services then worked very hard behind the scenes for the next few years to take me back to Court for more alleged breaches of the injunction. So something was going very wrong in Chester Crown Court, indeed on the whole Chester and Wales Circuit. Susan Brooke faced trial in 1995.

Sir Thomas Scott Baker presided over Susan Brooke’s trial. After Brooke pleaded guilty to child abduction and bigamy (it was revealed that she had remarried whilst still married to her previous husband), Scott Baker jailed her for three years. It was reported that he said at the trial: ‘You are an accomplished, manipulative and determined liar and somehow succeeded in persuading those close to you that first you were pregnant and then had given birth. I am satisfied that you planned the abduction of this child with some care. You are not mentally ill. You bear complete responsibility for what you did and what you did was both cruel and wicked’.

So who was Scott Baker relying upon for ‘evidence’ as to whether Susan Brooke was mentally ill or was a lying cow who had deceived the world? None other than dear old Bryn Golau ward at Denbigh – that was where she had been sent for ‘assessment’ after her arrest. That’s the same Bryn Golau ward where I had been illegally held and assaulted by staff, where I had encountered a young woman who had been abducted and sexually assaulted by a number of men but had been taken to Bryn Golau rather than being given access to the police (see post ‘The Distressed Young Woman Who Vanished’) and the same Bryn Golau ward where staff lied about patients’ actions repeatedly in the wake of which untruthful psychiatric reports for Courts were produced. And where no complaints, no matter how serious, were ever investigated. Only Bryn Golau could have asked no questions about the mental state of a woman who had faked a pregnancy whilst she was bigamously married to a man who had demanded a baby and who had subsequently stolen one. Only Bryn Golau could have asked no questions about a husband who claimed to have been ‘duped’ by a woman with a fantasy pregnancy for 14 months – 14 months, how long did that man believe that pregnancy in humans lasts?? And how on earth was this husband ‘duped’ – didn’t he ever notice the cushion stuffed up her jumper or whatever wheeze that she was alleged to be utilising in order to fake a pregnancy? Only Bryn Golau could have asked no questions about a husband who sounded very intimidating who ordered his wife to produce a baby after her 14 month pregnancy. And only a judge on the Chester and Wales Circuit would have swallowed this load of cobblers and constructed Susan Brooke as a master criminal.

Other information provided about Susan Brooke suggested that she had probably been in the clutches of the child care and/or mental health services herself in north Wales before she got around to a rather hopeless attempt at abducting a baby.

Scott Baker also became notorious after he ordered that a mentally ill woman ‘with the mind of a child’ should be sterilised against her will – I wonder if that was based on another ‘assessment’ produced by Dafydd and the gang.

According to an article in the Torygraph, Scott Baker was chosen as the coroner for Di and Dodi’s inquest because it was felt that he was one of the few who could take on Michael Mansfield QC, who was acting for Mohammed Fayed. There is only one reason why Scott Baker could have had the upper hand on Mansfield. It was because Mansfield too knew what Dafydd and the gang were doing in north Wales and Scott Baker knew that Mansfield knew. Everyone else knew as well, but Michael Mansfield QC is the man with the reputation of taking on state corruption and abuse no matter how serious. After all, Michael Mansfield represented the Price Sisters on charges of terrorism when his own car had been blown apart by the bomb that they planted. But Michael Mansfield did nothing at all when I wrote to him in 1993 about Gwynedd Social Services, beyond sending me a reply thanking me for my letter. Neither did Mansfield mention that Risley Remand Centre’s medical wing was full of kids from care and psych patients from north Wales who were victims of Dafydd’s gang when Mansfield represented the inmates of Risley who had been charged with very serious offences when they held a riot in 1989…

For the full horror of the Susan Brooke case, see posts ‘So Who’s Path Had Susan Brooke Crossed?’, ‘More On The Susan Brooke Case’ and ‘ Update On Cases Of Susan Brooke And Sara Thornton’.

 

Sir Thomas Scott Baker is correctly referred to in English legal writing as Scott Baker, distinguishing him from his father, Sir George Baker, a former High Court judge who was President of the Family Division, 1971-79. One of his brothers, His Honour Judge Michael Baker, QC, was the Resident Judge at St Alban’s Crown Court.

Scott Baker was educated at Haileybury and Imperial Service College and studied at Brasenose College, Oxford. He was a member of Chorleywood Urban District Council, 1964-67. He married (Margaret) Joy Baker in February 1973. They had 2 sons and one 1 daughter together.

Scott Baker was called to the Bar at the Middle Temple in 1961 and practised in a range of legal areas, including family, finance cases and professional negligence. He knew Ronnie Waterhouse who was a member of Middle Temple and heard family cases.

Scott Baker became a Recorder in 1976, and was appointed a QC in 1978. He became a Bencher at Middle Temple in 1985. Ronnie was a Bencher and Treasurer of Middle Temple. Scott Baker was a member of the Warnock Committee, 1982-84, Chaired by Mary Warnock, none of whom had any idea of what Top Doctors were getting up to in fertility clinics. The Warnock Committee’s Inquiry led to the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 1990. Which did not curb the excesses of the Top Doctors.

Scott Baker was appointed as a High Court judge in 1988 (and was styled Mr Justice Scott Baker) and allocated to the Family Division. He moved to the Queen’s Bench Division in 1993. He was Presiding Judge of the endemically corrupt Wales and Chester Circuit, from 1991-95, when members of the gang were repeatedly perjuring themselves in attempts to have me imprisoned. See eg. post ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’.

Scott Baker was a member of the Parole Board, 1999-2002. Professor Robert Bluglass and Drs Colin Berry and David Mawson, all of whom lied to conceal the crimes of Dafydd and the gang, also sat on the Parole Board. Scott Baker was the Lead Judge of the Administrative Court, 2000-02. In 1999, he presided over the trial of Great Western Trains following the Southall rail crash in 1997. He dismissed charges of corporate manslaughter as there was no identifiable individual in the company who was also guilty of gross negligence, but levied a then-record fine for health and safety offences of £1.5m. Scott Thomas’s judgement was upheld on appeal. The same year, Scott Baker presided at the trial of Jonathan Aitken on charges of perjury following the collapse of Aitken’s libel suit against ‘The Guardian’.

Scott Baker was promoted in 2002, becoming a Lord Justice of Appeal. He was Treasurer of Middle Temple, in 2004.

In March 2011, Scott Baker was sworn in as a Justice of the Court of Appeal of Bermuda.

Scott Baker’s dad Sir George Gillespie Baker, (25 April 1910 – 13 June 1984) was President of the Family Division (formerly of the Probate, Divorce and Admiralty Division) of the High Court of Justice, 1971-79 and a Judge in the Division, 1961-1979.

Sir George served as Assistant Adjutant General on the British War Crimes Executive at the Nuremberg Trials, 1945-46, where he worked with and knew Lord Elwyn-Jones, someone else who spent years facilitating the crimes of Dafydd and the gang (see post ‘Lest We Forget’).

George Gillespie Baker was educated at Glasgow Academy; Strathallan School, Perthsire and Brasenose College, Oxford, where he later became an Honorary Fellow. He was called to the Bar received by Middle Temple in 1932 and would in later life become Treasurer of the Middle Temple in 1976. So he knew Ronnie Waterhouse as well. At the beginning of WW II Baker joined the Army and after a brief spell in the Queen’s Own Royal West Kent Regiment he was commissioned in The Cameronians (Scottish Rifles) in 1940.

Baker served as Deputy Assistant Adjutant General at the War Office, 1941-42; Assistant Adjutant General with the Allied Force HQ, 1942-44, Colonel ‘A’ 15th Army Group, 1945 and Assistant Adjutant General on the British War Crimes Executive at the Nuremberg Trials, 1945-1946. After the war Baker resumed his career at the Bar, mostly on the then Oxford Circuit. He was Recorder of Bridgnorth, 1946-51, Smethwick, 1951-192 and Wolverhampton, 1952-61. He was appointed a QC in 1952 and served as Deputy Chairman of the Shropshire Quarter Sessions, 1954-71. Lord Kenyon who did so many favours for Dafydd’s gang was based in Shropshire, served as a JP and knew Sir George. Sir George was Leader of the Oxford Circuit for seven years until his promotion to a High Court Judge in 1961. There was long-standing organised abuse of children in Oxfordshire which was concealed by, among other people, Barbara Kahan and her husband, Top Doctor Vladimir Kahan. The Barbara Kahan who was appointed as an adviser to Sir Keith Joseph when Joseph served as Secretary of State for the DHSS in Ted Heath’s Gov’t. Keith Joseph also knew that UCNW was facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring…

Which might be why Thatch appointed Joseph as Secretary of State for Education and Science, 1981-86, while the Tories implemented big spending cuts on universities, including on UCNW. UCNW experienced a huge cut in its budget in 1981 and another one was promised, but the Tories backed off when one of the gwerin reminded a few people in Gov’t that the place was facilitating the paedophile ring which was delivering small boys to Sir Peter Morrison for him to hold sex parties with. Morrison was the Tory MP for Chester and his sister was Dame Mary Morrison, Women-of-the-Bedchamber to Carlo’s mum Lilibet. The President of Morrison’s Constituency Party Association was Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor, the Duke of Westminster, a close friend of Carlo’s.

Sir Thomas Scott Baker’s ‘deep personal integrity was founded on his staunch Presbyterian faith’. A great number of Presbytarians assisted Dafydd and the gang, they received excellent service from Presbytarians.

 

Sir Thomas Scott Baker is still alive, so perhaps he could explain why he decided that after a few years as a Lord Justice of Appeal that he fancied having a go as a coroner after Di and Dodi were killed. I’d like him to shed a bit of light on the extraordinary case of Susan Brooke as well, because it stank.

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…

Sons And Lovers

My post ‘Lord Snooty The Third’ discussed John Tilley, a Labour Councillor and then the Labour MP for Lambeth Central, 1987-83, who was the main or one of the main figures in London responsible for ensuring that numerous kids from inner London were sent into the arms of Dafydd’s gang in north Wales without any awkward questions being asked. There was a whole network of other Labour Party people surrounding John Tilley who also played their part. The London Labour Party at the time was dominated by people who were so desperate to wave their credentials re disadvantage or minorities that there were a plethora of jokes about the ‘loony left’ and ‘Private Eye’ quipped about the feat of Frances Morrell becoming Leader of ILEA without being black, working-class or gay. I mentioned in ‘Lord Snooty The Third’ that the real factor which ensured success for Frances Morrell or indeed anyone else in ILEA at the time was to keep their mouth shut about Dafydd’s gang. As long as one did that, one could be white, posh and heterosexual and still rise to the top of the London left.

Frances Morrell (née Frances Maine Galleway) led ILEA, 1983–87. Frances Morrell was brought up in York and educated at Queen Anne Grammar School in York and Hull University. Frances was brought up in Jimmy Savile country, at a time when Savile had plugged into the organised abuse that had previously existed in the region and turned it into an industry. Well before the time when Morrell was Leader of ILEA, Savile had established links with Dafydd et al. Savile used to visit Bryn Estyn and it is alleged that he witnessed the gang rape of a boy for pleasure.

Hull University has educated many of those both ancient and modern who concealed the crimes of Dafydd et al. See previous posts. The situation was assisted by Prezza being the MP for Hull East, 1970-2010. Prezza is from north Wales and went to Ruskin College when Matt Arnold – the Head of Bryn Estyn-  was teaching there and when Peter Howarth, Arnold’s friend and colleague who in 1994 was jailed for the abuse of boys at Bryn Estyn, was a student at Ruskin. See post ‘A Study In Tyranny’. No wonder Miranda made Prezza Deputy PM, 1997-2007.

 

Frances Morrell worked as a schoolteacher, 1960-70, marrying Brian Morrell in 1964. In 1970 Mrs Morrell became a Press Officer, working for the Fabian Society and the NUS. This brought Mrs Morrell into contact with Tony Benn, who was at the time coming to be seen as the leader of the Labour left and someone with whom Mrs Morrell then agreed on many important issues.

The Chairmen of the Fabian Society when Mrs Morrell was the Press Officer were Jeremy Bray (1970-71); Sir Peter Hall, 1971-72 – Sir Peter Hall the urban town planner as opposed to Sir Peter Hall the luvvie – and Lord Anthony Lester QC, 1972-73.

Jeremy William Bray (29 June 1930-31 May 2002) attended Kingswood School, Bath (1942-48), Jesus College, Cambridge and was a Choate Fellow at Harvard University. He also worked as a research officer at the Department of Applied Economics at Cambridge University. Bray was Labour MP for Middlesborough West, 1962-70; Motherwell and Wishaw, Oct 1974-83; and Motherwell South, 1983-97.

There was a trafficking ring in the Middlesborough region linked with Dafydd’s gang; it was that ring who’s activities erupted in the form of the Cleveland Child Abuse Scandal in 1987-88 (see post ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas And The Culprits Were Named’).

Sir Peter Geoffrey Hall(19 March 1932 – 30 July 2014) was the Bartlett Professor of Planning and Regeneration at The Bartlett School, UCL and President of both the Town and Country Planning Association and the Regional Studies Association. Hall was a planning and regeneration adviser to successive UK Gov’ts. He was Special Adviser on Strategic Planning to the Tory Gov’t, 1991–94 and a member of the Office of the Deputy PM’s -Prezza’s – Urban Task Force, 1998–1999.

Hall was born in Hampstead and in 1940, his family moved to Blackpool. He  attended Blackpool Grammar School and then graduated from St Catharine’s College, Cambridge with a Masters and Doctorate before starting his academic career in 1957 as lecturer at Birkbeck College, University of London. 

On 30 April 2015, Transport for London dedicated a train in recognition of Hall’s contribution to London’s transport infrastructure. The train, Number 378 204, is a five-carriage London Overground train:

The Professor Sir Peter Hall Overground train

The Professor Sir Peter Hall Overground train

If one googles ‘Transport For London’ one of the first results is ‘Transport London – Check Your Route For Delays’.

The Torygraph’s obituary for Sir Peter Hall filled everyone in on the highlights of his biography. Hall was:
Britain’s leading post-war planning intellectual’ who ‘taught generations of professional planners. Once an active Fabian and later a founding member of the Social Democratic Party, he was inspired by Ebenezer Howard and the garden city movement, and highly critical of the “planning by developers” approach promoted by some on the Right — seeing it as a recipe for featureless urban sprawl. Throughout his life he argued for centrally-coordinated planning based on the concepts of urban growth areas, garden cities and new towns. While Hall’s leanings were generally to the Left, he was not afraid to lend his expertise to governments of any persuasion. His idea for urban “enterprise zones” to kick-start development in run-down inner city areas morphed into the Urban Development Corporations which transformed Canary Wharf and other urban centres in the 1980s.

He became special adviser to Michael Heseltine when he returned to the Department of the Environment under John Major, and was the main progenitor of the idea of expanding London eastwards along the shores of the river Thames, accompanying Heseltine in a helicopter over what has become known as the Thames Gateway.

Later he worked with Labour’s Transport Secretary Andrew Adonis on his plans for Crossrail and HS2 and served as a somewhat semi-detached member of Labour’s Urban Task Force under the chairmanship of Lord (Richard) Rogers, whose enthusiasm for high density development on “brownfield” sites he did not share.

Hall also made waves by suggesting at a Town and Country Planning Association conference that Heathrow should be closed and replaced with a new airport in the Thames Estuary, potentially offshore — an idea which was subsequently taken up by the Tory Mayor of London Boris Johnson.

Hall had burst on to the scene as a young academic in 1963 with his book London 2000, a futuristic reimagining of the capital as it entered the new millennium. He argued for a major replanning of London and the south-east, with an elaborate grid of urban motorways, “clean sweep” demolition programmes and new towns. His prototypical London family would live at “Hamstreet”, a Kentish village grown into a new town, criss-crossed by motorways, elevated pavements and cycleways, all rigorously separated and linked to the Continent by a new cross-Channel rail link. He imagined a Brixton whose terraced houses had been “rehabilitated and modernised; their road pattern broken up and sealed from the main traffic streams… On a pedestrian deck above are new shops and offices and a higher education campus.”

If his early optimistic vision bore witness to his deep love of urban life, and was prophetic in predicting the need for congestion charging and the cross-Channel link, it also highlighted the dangers of brashly overconfident state planning. Even Hall came to see the dangers of the approach, admitting that many of the effects of top-down planning in the 1960s and ’70s had been dire.

The son of a clerical officer in the pensions service, Peter Geoffrey Hall was born on March 19 1932 in Hampstead, north London. During the war his family moved to Blackpool, where he was educated at the town’s grammar school (he would later repay the debt by chairing Blackpool’s regeneration agency from 2004 to 2008).

Hall went on take a degree and PhD in Geography at St Catharine’s College, Cambridge. After academic posts at Birkbeck College, London University, and the London School of Economics, he moved to the University of Reading, where he was Professor of Geography from 1968 to 1989 and head of department, also serving as chairman of its School of Planning Studies (1971–77 and 1983–86) and Dean of Urban and Regional Studies (1975–78).

In the 1980s he combined his duties at Reading with a professorship at the University of California, Berkeley, where he continued until taking up the chair of Planning (1992) at University College London’s Bartlett School of Architecture and Planning. He was director of the Institute of Community Studies from 2001 to 2004.

Among appointments to numerous advisory bodies, in 1966 Hall had been invited by the Labour government of Harold Wilson to join the South-East Economic Planning Council. He was in the forefront of the cheerleaders for the development of the new towns of Milton Keynes and Peterborough and, as former industrial cities began to fall derelict in the 1970s, produced papers arguing that one response might be to remove planning restrictions in targeted areas to “recreate the Hong Kong of the 1950s and 1960s inside inner Liverpool or inner Glasgow”.

The Council was abolished in 1979 by Margaret Thatcher, ostensibly because the quango was surplus to requirements — though as Hall later observed: “We had three big agendas in our last years: one, that you would never develop London Docklands without an urban development corporation; two, that London’s third airport should be at Stansted; and three, that the first national transport priority should be the M25 orbital motorway. So she shut us down rapidly to implement all three!”

Hall wrote or co-wrote some 50 books and (by his own estimate) more than 2,000 articles and shorter pieces. Among his better-known works, Great Planning Disasters (1980) was an attempt to answer the question: “How is it we can’t get to the airport, when we can get to the moon?”; Cities in Civilisation (1998) charted the role of the city from ancient Athens to Canary Wharf; Sociable Cities (1998, with Colin Ward) explored the work and influence of Ebenezer Howard; and London Voices, London Lives (2007) drew from interviews with ordinary Londoners carried out for an Economic and Social Research Council-funded project and, among other vignettes, featured Gujarati immigrants from the 1960s in Hounslow wanting to move to leafy Surrey “because of the immigrants”.

His last book, Good Cities, Better Lives (2013), asked the question why Britain does not build enough, and why what it does build is often alienating, ugly and poorly-served by infrastructure, while its European neighbours seem to have cracked the art of building happy and prosperous cities. Citing Freiburg as the outstanding example, Hall observed that continental city planners had “created good jobs, built superb housing in fine natural settings and generated rich urban lives. But not only that: simultaneously these cities have become models of sustainable urban life, minimising energy needs, recycling waste and reducing emissions.”

Planning, he argued, should be grounded in an understanding of the real world; informed by a deep knowledge of history; inspired by a sense of optimistic cultural possibility; and, above all, should remain focused on improving lives and creating places where people actually want to live and work — not what planners think is good for them.

Hall, a Fellow of the British Academy, received numerous awards, including the Founder’s Medal of the Royal Geographical Society and the Gold Medal of the Royal Town Planning Institute.

Knighted in 1998, he was named as a “Pioneer in the Life of the Nation” by the Queen in 2003.

In 1962 he married Carla Wartenberg. The marriage was dissolved in 1966, and the following year he married Magdalena Mróz, who survives him.’

 

Professor Sir Peter Hall would have known much about the massive corruption in planning depts and construction, much of which was linked with the associates of Dafydd’s gang and linked gangs, as described in my post ‘The Battle For The Labour Party’s Soul’. Hall had a great deal to answer for, but every time that his own handiwork bit him on the bum, he blamed someone else.

 

 Anthony Paul LesterBaron Lester of Herne Hill, QC (born 3 July 1936) is one of the many Radical Human Rights barristers who knew about Dafydd et al but said not a word. Lord Lester sits as a Lib Dem. Lester was born into a Jewish family and was educated at the City of London School. He studied at Trinity College, Cambridge and Harvard Law School. Lester was called to the Bar at Lincoln’s Inn. In 1987, he was appointed as a recorder and was in office until 1993. Lester works from Blackstone Chambers. He was appointed adjunct Professor of the Faculty of Law at University College Cork in 2005.

In the 1960s and 1970s Lester was directly involved with the drafting of race relations legislation in Britain. During these periods, he acted as the chair of the legal subcommittee of the Campaign Against Racial Discrimination (C.A.R.D.) and was a member of several organisations working for racial equality such as the Society of Labour Lawyers, Council of the Institute of Race Relations, British Overseas Socialist Fellowship and the National Committee for Commonwealth Immigrants.

In 1968, Lester co-founded the Runnymede Trust and was Chairman of the Runnymede Trust, 1991-93. The Runnymede is a magnet for paedophiles’ friends; a great many with Radical Consciences but who nonetheless ignored what was happening to people at the hands of Dafydd et al were leading lights in the Runnymede. The Runnymede Trust was founded by Dipak Nandy, who was also its first Director. Dipak is the Labour MP Lisa Nandy’s dad! Dipak and his then wife Maggie – Lisa’s mum – were both based in Leicester and associated with Leicester University for years while that institution concealed the paedophile gang operating in Leicester with links to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales. Lisa’s relatives have been most helpful to abusers, her granddad was Lord Frank Byers who was a Liberal Chief Whip and a member of the secret panel that the Liberal Party set up to investigate Norman Scott’s complaints about Jeremy Thorpe years before Thorpe’s 1979 trial for incitement to murder. Frank Byers’ response to Norman’s allegations was to hurl insults at him so Norman walked out of the ‘hearing’ and went to the police. See previous posts for further information about Lisa’s ancestors and for my very unpleasant experience when I was BEGGED to go to London by Lisa’s supporters to see Lisa in action.

According to Lisa’s PR, she’s an Asian Woman. She is also so fucking hopeless that she has to read her speeches word for word and so fucking rude that she ignores someone sitting in front of her who develops a screaming migraine which makes them quite ill.

 

Anthony Lester was a SPAD to Woy Jenkins at the Home Office in the 1970s, when Woy was colluding with the serious criminal activities of Dafydd et al. Lester moved with Woy from the Labour Party to found the SDP in 1981. For more details re Woy, see previous posts eg. ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’. On 29 June 2007, Lester was appointed by PM Gordon Brown as a SPAD on constitutional reform to the Secretary of State for Justice, one Jack Straw.

Lester is a member of the Joint Committee on Human Rights. Which must be why he ignored these matters:

  • Wales child abuse scandal: key questions answered ...

 

Anthony Lester is a Patron of the Family Planning Association. He represented the FPA in a contentious case in N Ireland where it was widely claimed that the FPA were trying to use strategic litigation to introduce liberalised abortion laws into the country. The paedophiles’ friends do like joining bodies which have an interest in the control of other people’s fertility.

For years in north Wales, the Top Doctors conspired to ensure that it was virtually impossible for women to obtain abortions on the NHS, even in the late 1980s, many years after abortion was decriminalised. This gave the Top Docs two advantages. A cosy business arrangement was established between the Top Docs of north Wales and a private abortionist in Chester and referrals were made to anyone who asked as long as they had the money required. For women too poor to afford the fee, the outcome was that they would continue with an unwanted pregnancy. This produced difficulties for many women, but for the kids in care or Empowered Service Users who had become pregnant as a result of Dafydd’s gang raping them, it was a nightmare, because they would then be referred to Dafydd for an ‘assessment’ re obtaining a termination on mental health grounds. Did the ‘assessment’ consist of what such an assessment did in every other area of the UK at the time ie. a conversation? Of course not. In north Wales, the assessment consisted of a stay at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. Where the view was taken that the patient couldn’t get more pregnant so it was party time. Geddit?? See previous posts eg. ‘Tan yn Llyn’, ‘Yours Truly, Angry Mob’ and ‘It’s Bachman Turner Over drive – Not ‘Arf’. I am still waiting for someone to tell us what happened to all the babies, because even after Dafydd’s ‘assessment’, an abortion would be refused but very few people emerged with a baby.

Alongside the unlawful restriction of abortion, the Top Doctors of north Wales urged ‘family planning’ on a whole variety of young women who had not ever enquired about such matters, as well, I was told, on girls in care, including those who did not have boyfriends and showed no interest in acquiring one. I noticed this myself and recently I had an e mail from someone else who found out what was going on who concluded that the girls in care were being ‘prepared for action’ by the age of 14. Yes, that was pretty much the conclusion that I drew. I knew of Empowered Service Users who were sterilised without their consent – in one case the Empowered Service User had no understanding of what the effects would be and no-one bothered to tell her. I imagine that this was routine. This was all completely unlawful and it was very widely known.

I do not remember Lord Lester or anyone else coming forward to help.

Lester’s peerage was announced on 13 August 1993. That was the month in which I was found guilty of ‘staring at a social worker in Safeways’ and was ordered to part with £60 by the Bangor Magistrates Court. The social worker in question, Jackie Brandt, was a member of the paedophile gang and her police statement claimed that I had shouted and sworn at her, such that she feared ‘immediate violence’. She ended up crying in the witness box and admitted that I hadn’t even spoken to her but I had stared at her. There was no investigation for perjury. The year before Anthony Lester bagged his peerage, the North Wales Police closed their investigation into the possibility of a VIP paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire, stating that there was ‘no evidence’ of any such thing.

Lord Lester: Dafydd et al operated a massive trafficking organisation which targeted kids in care, psych patients and people with learning disabilities. Hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people went through their crazed, dangerous hands after ‘being referred’. I am one of the few survivors that I know of. Furthermore by the time that they targeted me – in the early 1980s – they had an enormous well-oiled machine. That gang did not spend the next 25 years trying to kill Brown and me and forcing me out of every job that I obtained because their gang had died a death and was no longer exerting influence. They were very much still in action. So who else have they done this to Lord Lester and WHERE are all the missing people???

Anthony Lester is the father of Gideon Lester and of Maya Lester QC. Gideon was born in 1972, when Dafydd and John Allen’s trafficking gang were beginning to hit the big time. Gideon himself was in no danger from them – it wasn’t the children of Human Rights barristers who were ‘referred’ to Dafydd, they were kept well away from him by their parents – but Gideon may well know a few people who used the services of those procured by Dafydd’s gang, because Gideon is a luvvie.

Gideon Lester is a ‘performing arts curator, artistic director, educator, and dramaturg’. What a dramaturg is I have no idea. The dramaturd is currently Artistic Director for Theater and Dance at the Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts at Bard College and Director of Bard’s undergraduate Theater & Performance program. The dramaturd was Acting Artistic Director of the American Repertory Theatre (A.R.T.), 2007-09 and taught at the Columbia University of the Arts, where he created the Arts Collaboration Lab.

Gideon the dramaturd studied at Oxford University and study dramaturdy at the A.R.T. Institute for Advanced Theatre Training at Harvard. He taught dramaturdy at the American Repertory Theatre and playwriting at Harvard.

The dramaturd’s stage translations include Marivaux’s Island of Slaves.

Here’s the Island from where so many of Dafydd’s slaves came:

  • Wales child abuse scandal: key questions answered ...
  • The dramaturd is a productive turd, among his many other stage translations are two texts by the French playwright Michael Vinaver, ‘King’ and ‘Overboard’.
  • Lord Tom King, who greatly benefited from Dafydd’s gang:
  • Tom King MP UK Conservative Party Secretary of State for N ...

The dramaturd’s other adaptations include ‘Enter the Actress’, a one-woman show.

The General Secretary of the Fabian Society, 1964-76 was Thomas Arthur Ponsonby, 3rd Baron Ponsonby of Shulbrede (23 October 1930-13 June 1990), who succeeded the title on the death of his father in 1976. Thomas Ponsonby served as a member of Kensington and Chelsea Council, 1956-65 and then as an Alderman, 1964-74. He then became an Alderman of the GLC, 1970-77 and was elected Chairman of the GLC, 1976-77. Ponsonby was elected Labour Chief Whip in the Lords in 1982 and served as Opposition Chief Whip until his death in 1990. Thomas Ponsonby was a Governor of the LSE, 1970-90. 

Ponsonby married twice: firstly to Ursula Mary Fox-Pitt, the daughter of Cdr Thomas Stanley Lane Fox-Pitt of Devon, with whom he had a son and three daughters and secondly to Maureen Estelle Campbell-Teich, the widow of Dr Paul Campbell-Teich of Geneva, Switzerland. He was succeeded by his son, Frederick Ponsonby, 4th Baron Ponsonby of Shulbrede. Frederick sits as a Labour peer and is a regular contributor in Lords debates. He lost his seat in the Lords after the passing of the House of Lords Act 1999, but in 2000 Miranda let him back in by creating him a life peer as Baron Ponsonby of Roehampton, of Shulbrede in the County of West Sussex. Miranda will have realised that Frederick did not just inherit his father’s title, but he will have inherited a great deal of the knowledge re the names and crimes of those Who Knew.

Frederick, son of Thomas who was Where The Action Was:

 

The NUS President, 1969-71, was Jack Straw. Straw was Miranda’s Home Secretary, 1997-2001, throughout the Waterhouse Inquiry and at the time of the publication of the Waterhouse Report.

Digby Jacks, 1971-73. Digby Jacks was a member of the Communist Party when he became President of the NUS. Jacks was raised in Charlton, south London, the son of a building surveyor, and read biology at King’s College, London and gained a teaching diploma at the Institute of Education. He taught for a time at Holland Park Comprehensive School before his election to the NUS Executive in 1969.

Charlton seems to be a rather boring part of London within the Royal Borough of Greenwich and has links with the Royal Navy. The Italian writer Italo Svevo lived in a house on Charlton Church Lane, 1903-13. He had arrived there in his capacity as a director in a Trieste firm selling paint for ships, on whose behalf he established a factory in Charlton’s Anchor and Hope Lane, fulfilling a big contract with the Royal Navy. The foundry of J. Stone & Co moved to Charlton in 1917 and produced 22,000 propellers for the Royal Navy during WW II (its products being fitted to battleships, aircraft carriers, cruisers and numerous smaller vessels), plus propellers and water-tight doors for RMS Queen Mary, RMS Queen Elizabeth and Royal Yacht Britannia. In 1963 Stone’s marine propeller business merged with Manganese Bronze and manufacture moved to Birkenhead. Stone Foundries still operates at Charlton, in a plant established in 1939 to produce aluminium and magnesium light alloy castings mainly for the aircraft industry and production of nails and rivets continues at nearby Stone Fasteners.

Young people are unaware of for how long Britain remained acutely conscious of WW II long after that war had ended. Boys of Digby’s generation were raised on a diet of comics in which most of the stories were about WW II, ‘war films’ were on TV constantly and all older people remembered the war and often talked about it. Everybody had a male relative who had Fought In The War. Britain was dead proud of it all and all less reputable conduct that the Brits may have participated in was air-brushed away. But young men like Digby’s were rebelling and had a bellyful of hearing about it all. Digby was a Commie with big ambitions. He’d have been acutely aware of all that relatively recent Royal Navy and MoD activity in Charlton and he will have known that a few things had gone in which were being kept from the ears of the great British public, such as the activities of Lord Louis Mountbatten and some others in his network (see post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’). Digby will have been digging and Digby will have known that when he was President of the NUS, the biggest wig at ILEA was very, very close to someone who, because of his war service and place in ‘the establishment’ could not have afforded to have been associated with anything like the activities of Dafydd’s gang…I will return to this person later in this post.

The school at which Digby had taught, Holland Park, opened in 1958 and was the flagship for comprehensive education. A number of high-profile socialists sent their children to Holland Park School and it became known as “the socialist Eton”. Hilary and Melissa Benn went to Holland Park, as did Polly Toynbee, Jenny Abramsky and Evgeny Lebedev. Some famous people also taught there, including Bryan Ferry and another member of Roxy Music, Christine Blower who became the General Secretary of the NUT and Mary Marsh, the former Head, became a non-executive Director of HSBC plc and a Governor of the London Business School.

Holland Park had a very loyal fan club but there were also fierce critics. In 1970, George Gale, then the Editor of ‘The Spectator’,  claimed that the girls at Holland Park were running a vice ring at the school. I have no idea whether there was any truth in that allegation, but had the girls wanted to do that, they would have been in an excellent position to do so, being young women living in London who were well-networked to people with money who would want to use their services. While someone like George Gale would be delighted to think that the most terrible things were happening at Holland Park, other people would be desperate to pretend that everything really was fantastic there. I went to a comprehensive school – although not Holland Park obviously – at a time when a lot of people in education would not hear a word against comprehensive schools and believe me, our school was shite, as was the neighbouring glorious comprehensive which Brown attended. They both needed bombs dropping on them, but Brown and me were frequently gunned down by right-on people when we dared say this. From what I can work out, Holland Park was like a lot of comprehensive and not so comprehensive schools in that kids from professional well-connected families did very well, others not so well. Polly Toynbee was a real duffer at school but she’s writing bollocks in ‘The Guardian’ in exchange for a great deal of money nonetheless.

However, if there had have been anything approaching a vice ring in operation at Holland Park, just imagine the influence that Digby would wield over all the people who were desperate that the school should remain a shining example of all that was great about comprehensive education. A lot of people have forgotten that in the early 1970s, a lot of Tories supported comprehensive schools as well, it wasn’t a policy solely encouraged by Shirley Williams as Auberon Waugh always seemed to think. The name of the Education Secretary who oversaw the establishment of more comprehensives than any other Education Secretary was one Margaret Thatcher, who was the Education Secretary when Digby was President of the NUS…

Digby died in October 2011 and his obituary in the Indie stated that:

‘Digby Jacks was instrumental in turning the National Union of Students into an effective lobbying and campaigning body, which stopped the then Education Minister Margaret Thatcher from introducing policies which would have restricted the autonomy and finances of the various students’ unions….

Told you so, Digby had real influence over the Tories…

He was disappointed, but took a pragmatic approach when an increase to the student grant system of an extra £10 million he had negotiated was turned down by his conference on the grounds that it was insufficient and that the demands of the wage campaign would only be met when the “organised working class can defeat the wage freeze”…

So Digby’s ‘members’, who in those days were overwhelmingly drawn from the offspring of the professional middle classes wanted rather more than Digby bagged them; they might have been showing solidarity towards the organised working class but the organised working class probably viewed them as a bunch of indulged twats who had a bloody nerve turning down an extra £10 million on the grounds that it was ‘insufficient’.

On leaving the NUS he became a Divisional Officer for the Association of Scientific, Technical and Managerial Staffs, one of the few NUS presidents to become a full-time union official, staying on to become Assistant General Secretary when it became the Manufacturing, Science and Finance Trade Union. He undertook responsibility for looking after those working in the finance industries.

The ASTMS and the union into which it evolved, MSF, had a great many members who held professional/managerial jobs in the NHS and medical schools but who were not Top Doctors. When I worked at St George’s Hospital Medical School, 1989-91, the MSF reps were corrupt and were using their knowledge of the very serious wrongdoing of the Top Doctors – including the trafficking gang in south London which the Top Docs were facilitating – for their own benefit. They didn’t blow the whistle, they didn’t protect patients from harm, they just held the institution over a barrel to shore up their own positions. There was and still is much wrongdoing in medicine, much of it perpetrated by people who have Lord and Sir in front of their names and a great many people find that life is sweet if they let it be known that they have knowledge of what is going on but won’t say a word, as long as they are invited to the party as well.

 

In 2005, Jacks retired as regional officer for Amicus. Amicus was the UK’s largest private sector union, formed by the merger of MSF and the AEEU, agreed in 2001 and two smaller unions, UNIFI and the GPMU. Amicus also organised in both parts of Ireland and was affiliated to the UK TUC, the Irish Congress of Trade Unions and the Scottish Trades Union Congress. Older people in Amicus knew about the elite vice ring based at the Kincora Boys’ Home in Belfast which allegedly included Sir Anthony Blunt and Lord Mountbatten, because Top Doctors were involved (see previous posts). They’d have also had  great deal of crap on events during the Troubles, including the Shoot to Kill policy, the torture of suspects and other matters which were flatly denied by the British Gov’t.

So Digby Spart remained in this not at all left wing union which represented many professional middle class people who were using their knowledge of the wrongdoing of even more senior people to feather their nests until well into Miranda’s regime, a regime in which Jack Straw, Digby’s fellow ‘left winger’ from the NUS of yesteryear, played a key role.

On 1 May 2007 Amicus merged with the TGWU to form UNITE, the biggest trade union in the UK.

On retirement [Digby] served as a Labour councillor in Hounslow

Digby remained a Councillor in Hounslow until 2006.

and became Secretary of the Alliance for Finance, an independent confederation of finance unions and staff representative bodies of financial workers.

The Alliance for Finance is a trade union federation in the UK. The Alliance for Finance was founded in 1996 on the initiative of the Barclays Group Staff Union to encourage more joint campaigning and solidarity between the many trade unions and staff associations covering the banking and financial services sector in the UK.

Not MacDonalds employees, although when he led the NUS, Digby’s desire to give the children of what were in those days mostly middle class people £10 million was rebuffed by those children themselves because they wanted more.

The Alliance’s membership was initially 27 organisations, including the Banking, Insurance and Finance Union, the Communication Workers Union, MSF, the TGWU and USDAW. This quickly rose to 36 organisations, although the 1999 merger between the Banking Insurance and Finance Union, UNiFI and the NatWest Staff Association began a process of consolidation, which has tended to reduce its prominence. In addition, many members have affiliated to the TUC. 

As well as Digby, Gwyn Bates, the former National Secretary of Unifi, Amicus and UNITE, was a previous Secretary of the Alliance for Finance. The current Honorary Vice President of the Alliance for Finance is Frank Needham, former General Secretary of the in-house union at National & Provincial Building Society. Needham was Chair of the Federation of Building Society Staff Associations from 1984-87 and subsequently Vice Chair of the Financial Services Staff Federation from 1993-96.

Baroness Turner of Camden is a former Honorary Vice President of the Alliance for Finance. Muriel Winifred Turner, Baroness Turner of Camden (née Price; 18 September 1927 – 26 February 2018). Between 1970 and 1987, Turner was Assistant General Secretary of ASTMS (later MSF, Amicus and now UNITE). From 1981 to 1987 Turner was a member of the TUC General Council. Muriel was created a life peer in May 1985. She had a particular interest in social welfare and pensions issues, which will be why she kept quiet about the organised abuse in the Camden area with links to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales. Muriel bagged that peerage as the threats rained down upon Brown and I and just two months before Lord Donaldson, the Master of the Rolls, upheld Mary Wynch’s appeal re Dafydd and the gang. Mary was represented by Birnberg & Co, who were based in Camden. All colluding politicians as well as legal and health care professionals knew that Mary’s case was about the be heard at the Royal Courts of Justice and a lot of them knew that Brown and I were raising serious concerns about the mental health services in north Wales as well. By the summer of 1985, Alison Taylor was blowing whistles regarding the abuse of kids in care in north Wales.

Muriel was Front Bench Spokesperson on Employment for the Labour Opposition, Oct 1987-96, which covered the years of investigations in north Wales as the region was littered with the corpses of kids in care and Empowered Service Users. The Windbag, John Smith and Miranda sat on all of it.

Muriel was Deputy Speaker of the Lords, 2002-08. Up in north Wales, the legacy of Dafydd’s gang continued, particularly as so many of them were holding senior positions in the public services, the local authorities and the police. Corruption was rampant and complaints about the most serious wrongdoing in the ‘services’ were ignored.

Muriel was a member of the Equal Opportunities Commission, 1982-88. Elspeth Howe served as Deputy Chairman of the EOC, 1975 -79 – when Mary Wynch was unlawfully arrested and imprisoned by Dafydd – and in various other capacities from 1980. Elspeth was married to Geoffrey Howe, a member of Thatch’s Cabinet while Dafydd et al caused havoc. Before he became an MP, Geoffrey Howe was a barrister in Wales/Chester, where along with all of his colleagues, he colluded with Dafydd and the gang. Geoffrey and Elspeth Howe were close friends with Ronnie Waterhouse and his wife and had been since they were very young. See previous posts for more information about the Howes and their numerous links to Dafydd’s associates.

Corrupt and female? Then you are given a position on an Equality Body.

Muriel was also a member of the Occupational Pensions Board, 1977-93; Council member, Occupational Pensions Advisory Service,1989-2007; and Chair, Personal Investment Authority Ombudsman Council 1994-97. She was a ranking member of British Parliamentary Committee for Iran Freedom.

Muriel was Vice-President of Humanists UK and an Honorary Associate of the National Secular Society, both bodies which have enjoyed support from many paedophiles’ friends. On 15 September 2010, Turner, along with 54 other public figures, signed an open letter published in ‘The Guardian’, stating their opposition to Pope Benedict XVI’s state visit to the UK. Claire Rayner was Vice-President (and formerly President) of the British Humanist Association and an Honorary Associate of the National Secular Society. In the weeks leading up to her death, Rayner railed against Pope Benedict’s XVI’s state visit to the UK. Like Muriel, Claire Rayner also knew about Dafydd and the gangs linked to him and remained silent. Like Muriel, Claire collected Brownie points for her Caring NHS ways. See post ‘The Wretched Of the Earth’.

Someone should have reminded Turner and Rayner that people living in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones; those two were in no position to have a go at the Pope, they’d concealed exactly the same criminal activity.

 

 

 

To return to Mrs Morrell. In 1973 Tony Benn invited Morrell to be his Political Adviser should Labour win the next election. Mrs Morrell served as a SPAD to Benn at the Departments of Industry and Energy, 1974-79. Benn was increasingly marginalised as the Parliament went on, but Morrell worked to link him with a network of activists outside Parliament.

Details of the many links that Benn had with Dafydd’s network and those who colluded with Dafydd’s crimes can be read in my post ‘No Cuts’. Some years before he died, I wrote to Tony Benn about the abuse of mental health patients in north Wales. Tony wrote back simply saying ‘Sorry – disability is not my area’. It was a disability rights activist who suggested that I write to Wedgie-Benn, because he ‘has a good reputation on disability rights’.

 

Mrs Morrell was selected to stand as the Labour candidate for Chelmsford in Feb 1974 but she failed to be selected for several Labour seats in the 1979 General Election, including Birkenhead and Manchester Blackley. That will undoubtedly have been as a result of the internal feuding between the left and right of the Labour Party. Mrs Morrell was a firm ally of Benn’s who was loathed by the Labour Party leadership by the late 1970s.

It was Frank Field who was selected as the candidate for Birkenhead, who won the seat in 1979 and he is still there. I have previously blogged my appreciation for Frank Field after he named a group of NHS Directors and Top Doctors on Merseyside who had perpetrated a fraud in which the NHS was relieved of funds in the House and then on his blog. One of those named by Field was the vile Lyn Meadows, a former senior manager of the Welsh Ambulance Trust, who after disgracing herself there turned up as the HR Director at Bangor University, where she disgraced herself all over again. The charming Lyn is now a non-executive Director of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board. See previous posts.

Much as I am grateful to Frank Field for exposing the NHS crooks of the Wirral whom no-one else dared touch, it has not escaped my notice that Frank has been sitting in Birkenhead since 1979 and that a branch of Dafydd’s gang ran Merseyside and that many of them are still there (see previous posts). Lyn Meadows and her corrupt Top Doc pals were by no means the only or biggest problems on Merseyside. As a Labour Moderate, surely Frank should at least have said something about the slaying of Michael Carr, the former Labour MP for Bootle by the combined forces of Militant and the Top Docs at Walton Hospital in July 1990? It was acknowledged that the conduct of the staff at Walton fell into the criminal negligence category, but successive DPPs just bounced the case back and forth (see post ‘News From Sicily’).

Frank Field is hated by many of the left and many of his comments in the past suggests that Frank divides the poor very much into the deserving and undeserving. He was Miranda’s Minister for Welfare Reform, 1997-98, but famously fell out with Miranda and returned to the backbenches.

Field was born in Edmonton. His father was a labourer at a factory in Battersea and his mother a teaching assistant. His parents were Conservatives. Field was educated at St Clement Danes School, then in Hammersmith, before studying at Hull University. In his youth Field was a member of the Conservative Party, but left in 1960 because of his opposition to Apartheid in South Africa and joined the Labour Party. In 1964, Field became a FE teacher in Southwark and Hammersmith.

Field served as a Labour Councillor in the London Borough of Hounslow, 1964-68. He was Director of the Child Poverty Action Group, 1969-79 and of the Low Pay Unit, 1974-80.

Once in Parliament, Field was made a member of the Opposition front bench by the Leader Footie as a Spokesman on Education in 1980, but was dropped a year later. Following the appointment of the Windbag as the Labour leader in 1983, Field was appointed as a Spokesman on Health and Social Security for a year. He was appointed the Chairman of the Social Services Select Committee in 1987 and then served as the Chairman of the new Social Security Select Committee, 1990-97.

Not a word about Dafydd and the gang throughout any of it Frank, although Dafydd et al were very busy indeed.

Following the 1997 election, Field joined Miranda’s Gov’t as Minister for Welfare Reform in the DHSS. Blair stated that Field’s mission was to “think the unthinkable”. Field thought that the state should only play a small direct role in the provision of welfare and he disliked means-testing and non-contributory entitlement to benefits, which he believed should only be received after claimants had joined social insurance schemes or mutual organisations such as ‘friendly societies’. There were clashes with Gordon and Harriet, but then everyone clashed with Gordon and Harriet.

Blair later wrote that he was disappointed that so little fresh thinking on welfare reform had emerged from his years as PM. That Blair, is because none of you were prepared to admit that the core of the problem is a deeply corrupted welfare state, run by well-heeled ‘professionals’ who run it to ensure that they benefit rather than The Poor. If The Professionals are allowed to lie, steal, embezzle and abuse The Poor with impunity and the response to The Poor gathering some very damning evidence against The Professionals is to smear The Poor, fit them up for crimes and then refuse them all medical care, then you are going to have very big problems. Which is why the only solutions that anyone ever came up with was to blame The Poor themselves, whether the argument used was one involving Cycles Of Deprivation, Neural Pathways or Genes and run around in circles banging on about social insurance schemes and friendly societies. When somebody stop The Professionals from ruthlessly milking the welfare state for their own ends, you will find that there is plenty there to Help The Poor. Tough on crime, tough on the causes of crime Blair. But you refused to target the most serious crime – serious organised crime on the part of the state.

The idiocy continues. The introduction of the welfare reform most closely associated with Blair eventually came to pass in 2008: the replacement of Incapacity Benefit by Employment Support Allowance. The think-tank Reform, on the advisory board of which Field sits, said in its 2016 report on changes to out-of-work sickness benefits that ESA had ‘replicated many of the problems of IB’ and had therefore ‘failed to achieve its objective’. Why are we not surprised?

 

After leaving Ministerial Office, Field continued with his duties as an MP and joined the Ecclesiastical and the Public Accounts Select Committees in the House of Commons.

In June 2010 Field was appointed by Lord Snooty the Third’s Coalition Gov’t to head an independent review into poverty, which proposed adopting a new measure centred around life-chance indicators and increasing funding for early years education. In an interview in September 2012, Field considered Snooty III to have ignored his report, saying “nothing had been done about it” and that it was “very disappointing”. Probably because Snooty III had given every spare penny to Camila Batmanghelidjh after she impressed him with her knowledge of ‘thermostatic emotional regulation’ and the erroneous neural pathways developing in foetuses who are busy gestating in the uteri of The Poor of sahf London.

  • Kids Company founder Camila Batmanghelidjh blames Tory ...
  • A charity boss claims the government is silencing her on ...

 

Here’s Frank brainstorming with like-minded people in 2012:

In October 2013, along with Laura Sandys, Field established the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Hunger and Food Poverty, which he went on to Chair. He also chaired a parliamentary inquiry into hunger commissioned by the APPG which reported in December 2014. Field became the Chair of trustees of Feeding Britain, a charitable organisation set up in October 2015 to implement the recommendations made by the APPG.

Whether Frank takes advantage of the subsidised dining facilities in the House I do not know.

Following the 2015 General Election, it was announced in June 2015 that Frank had been elected to the Chairmanship of the Work and Pensions Select Committee. He was re-elected unopposed to the role following the 2017 General Election.

In December 2017, during a debate on Universal Credit, Field described the impact that Universal Credit changes had had on his constituents. Field spoke of how he had talked a man out of suicide and how one claimant felt “lucky” his family was invited to eat food leftover from a funeral.

Frank clearly wonders where it has all gone so wrong after the many years of his silence…

In March 2015, Field was awarded the Grassroot Diplomat Initiative Honouree for the co-founding of environmental organisation Cool Earth, a charidee that works alongside indigenous villages to halt rainforest destruction as a bottom-up solution to an ageing problem. Meanwhile in the NHS on Merseyside…

In 2017,  Frank Field was awarded the Langton Award for Community Service by the Archbishop of Canterbury “for sustained and outstanding commitment to social welfare”, as a result of Frank’s sealed lips regarding the massive scams that Dafydd’s gang have been working on Merseyside during Frank’s entire Parliamentary career.

Frank is an admirer of Thatch, the lady who was personal friends with at least three active paedophiles linked to Dafydd’s gang ie. Peter Morrison, George Thomas and Jimmy Savile. Although there have been attempts to get Frank to defect to the  Tories, they have been without success.

 In May 2010, Field endorsed Ed Miliband and Uncle Harry’s Leadership challenge.

Field is a practising Anglican, a former Chairman of the Churches Conservation Trust and a member of the Church of England General Synod. I am not someone who believes that every worshipper in the C of E is an abuser, but there has been a long-standing problem of denial within the institution.

Field wants to reducing the time-limit within which women can have an abortion and to strip abortion providers such as Marie Stopes of their counselling role and handing it to organisations not linked to abortion clinics. With the Conservative MP Nadine Dorries, Field has been vocal in two defeated attempts to legislate for such a reform in Parliament. I too am a little concerned about the domination of abortion providers in the field of providing counselling for pregnant women, because they tend to be very good at helping women who want abortions but not so good at assisting women who with to continue with a pregnancy in difficult circumstances. However, Field, Mad Nad and their fellow travellers never mention the frank abuses on the part of Top Doctors that continue with regard to their ‘care and counselling’ of vulnerable pregnant women and Frank, Nad et al often seem to not quite understand just how difficult the situations of some women are. ‘Go and see your GP!’ So what do you do if you’re a kid in care who’s been raped by one of the staff and the GP is colluding with the trafficking gang which the local Social Services are facilitating then Frank/Nad?

Here’s Ioan Bowen Rees, Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council, 1980-91:

Frank Field has never married and has not been blessed with children. 

 

Kenneth Eastham was selected as the Labour candidate for Manchester Blackley and he won the seat and remained there until he retired in 1997. Eastham was a planning Engineer for GEC at Trafford Park,  Manchester, and a Manchester City Councillor for eighteen years. Eastham was a Councillor when Dafydd’s old mate Dr Bob Hobson relocated to Manchester from the Maudsley and ran a trafficking ring in the Manchester area (see post ‘The Mentor’). Tony and Sadie Francis joined old Hobson and then made their way to the North Wales Hospital to join Dafydd, as did the genocidal Dr Tony ‘Do Nothing’ Roberts a few years later.

Ken Eastham is very elderly but still with us, so perhaps he could let us know why he wanted that safe Labour seat in 1979, five years after Hobson arrived in Manchester. Mary Wynch was languishing in Denbigh in 1979, having been illegally imprisoned there by Dafydd. Dafydd knew that he was in trouble before Mary emerged, because Mary had been doing battle with Dafydd and the gang since the early 1970s and she already had lawyers lined up to act for her. Previous posts have described how Dafydd et al began sending up paedophiles’ in distress flares in 1979 to summon the cavalry from across the political spectrum.

 

 

Now to return to Mrs Morrell. After the Labour Gov’t left office in 1979, Mrs Morrell helped to create the ‘Rank and File Mobilising Committee’, through which the left organised to bring changes in the Party. ‘Private Eye’ called her Tony Benn’s ‘hatchet-woman’. In the run-up to the 1981 GLC elections, Mrs Morrell was chosen to fight Islington South and Finsbury and on election formed part of the left faction in support of Red Ken.

At the time there was that huge paedophile ring operating in the children’s homes in Islington…

Jack Straw was Little Nell’s Deputy on Islington Council’s Housing Committee, but then Jack pops up everywhere behind someone who is ignoring a trafficking gang. Jack was Battling Barbara Castle’s adviser when he was a whippersnapper and Babs was concealing the wrongdoing of the Top Doctors et al when Babs was Secretary of State at the DHSS. Babs certainly chose her juniors with care, Dr Death was one of her junior Ministers as was dear old Lord David Ennals, both big pals of some of those we know and love in north Wales. See previous posts.

 

Mrs Morrell’s background as a teacher led her to spend most time on ILEA, which came with membership of the GLC. She was chosen as Deputy Leader of the new left leadership of ILEA under Bryn Davies. Mrs Morrell became unsatisfied with Bryn’s leadership –  she considered it ‘weak’ – and built support for a change through the GLC Women’s Group; in April 1983 she challenged Bryn and was elected as ILEA  leader.

Under Mrs Morrell, ILEA became concerned with promoting gender equality. I suppose that ILEA could have argued that both boys and girls were being abused and trafficked. The authority was severely criticised for what the right regarded as propaganda in the schools that it administered. Many of the policies of the Davies leadership were continued, which included the high spending: ILEA deliberately set an illegally high budget for 1985. Thatch’s Gov’t was proposing to abolish the GLC and wanted to abolish ILEA as well but found it impractical to do so. However, new legislation allowed the Gov’t to limit  ILEA’s budget and it did so. ILEA was helped by a bail-out from the GLC for one year.

The abolition of the GLC in 1986 meant that something had to be done to provide for future elections to the ILEA. It was decided that there would be direct elections. Mrs Morrell led Labour into the campaign and with London hostile to the abolition of the GLC, Labour won an easy victory. Mrs Morrell was re-elected quite narrowly herself, as the SDP put up a strong challenge.

Despite Red Ken’s best efforts, the GLC was abolished on 31 March 1986, along with the West Midlands, Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Tyne and Wear, West Yorkshire and South Yorkshire Councils. All of these Councils had trafficking rings operating within their welfare services and some of them were sending a lot of kids in their care to Dafydd et al in north Wales. No-one said a word about this among the ranting both against and in favour of these Councils over a period of years, although a great many people knew what was going on.

On 31 March 1986, BBC News reported that ‘Thousands of people have taken part in festivities to mark the historic final hours of 97 years of local rule in London. A throng of 250,000 people have gathered on the South Bank in London, home to the Greater London Council, which will not exist from midnight tonight. Festivities will end with the largest display of fireworks ever seen in the city after a week of events costing £250,000.’

Well Red Ken and his mates transferred millions into the pockets of Dafydd’s gang, what’s another £250k on fireworks?

Dafydd et al were getting very jumpy in 1986, because a contingent of honest police had begun to close in on them. Oliver Brooke, Prof of Paediatrics at St George’s Hospital Medical School and one of the biggest players in the pan-European paedophile ring which Dafydd et al were running was jailed in Dec 1986. The paedophiles’ friends will have known that Ollie had been caught by the time that the GLC vanished after that fireworks display. Fortunately for Ollie and his associates, the legal establishment was on their side and Lord Justice Geoffrey Lane allowed  Ollie’s appeal in May 1987 and Ollie was released shortly after on the grounds that the poor man had suffered enough and his vast collection of kiddie porn was no more than the equivalent of a collection of ‘cigarette cards’ no less. See previous posts eg. ‘Oliver!’

By the time that the GLC and Dafydd’s other business partners disappeared, Alison Taylor and I could not have been yelling more loudly that something terrible was happening in north Wales and Mary had won her case…

Dafydd and the gang remained in business and witnesses continued to be harassed, threatened and found dead. Including my housemate Anne Vernon, who was killed in April 1986.

Whatever the security services thought that they were doing in the face of all this, it really was woefully inadequate and no-one will ever convince me otherwise. I look forward to the resignation of C or Z or Dame Stella Rimington or whoever was responsible for this cock-up, along with their statement that they have failed and will learn lessons. Then they can go and do it all over again. That seems to be the model of practice.

Mrs Morrell lost her leadership of ILEA in 1987 by 23 votes to 22, continuing a tradition of internal deselection established by both of her predecessors.

Mrs Morrell became secretary of the Speaker of the House of Commons Commission on Citizenship in 1988. That Speaker was Bernard Weatherill, who had succeeded the  child molester George Thomas as Speaker in 1983, when Thatch gave George Thomas a Viscountcy. Mrs Morrell was a senior research fellow at Queen Mary and Westfield College, 1991-92 and then became Executive Director of the Institute for Citizenship Studies.

Mrs Morrell was lately joint Chief Executive of ArtsInform, ‘which tries to build relationships between schools and colleges and professional artists.’

Mrs Morrell’s husband Brian committed suicide in April 2009 – although I have not found out about the circumstances – and Mrs Morrell herself suffered from increasingly poor health and died from cancer in January 2010. Frances and Brian Morrell died as angry demands were being made by many for another investigation into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. Dafydd’s gang sent up distress flares which caused an influx of paedophiles’ friends to stand for and get elected to the Welsh Assembly (see post ‘The Battle Of The Cowshed’), including Jenny Rathbone, a former Islington Councillor, journalist and member of the family who established a charity that supplied the paedophiles with help when some of them were actually caught (see post ‘The Mentor’).

I can imagine that some unpleasant things could have been happening to the Morrells as people who had previously been at the scene of the crime and could name names; Dafydd’s gang have never showed any loyalty to those who concealed their crimes when the going gets tough.

The other day I asked Brown why he thought that after so many accessories having been found dead someone hadn’t actually murdered Dafydd. Brown quipped that Dafydd was obviously getting there first. Furthermore Dafydd has/had Top Docs working for him and apart from Brown and me, no-one ever suspects them. ‘Ooh thank you for the prescription doctor, I’ll take this lethal cocktail straight away…’ ‘I need THAT particular treatment?? It sounds unpleasant and ineffective, but ooh you doctors know what you’re doing, I mean docs who harm their patients aren’t allowed to practise are they???’ ‘Ooh I’ve heard of Dr Jones, he’s Europe’s Leading Forensic Psychiatrist isn’t he, I read it in the Bangor and Anglesey Mail in 1994, I know I’ll be in safe hands…’

‘Now don’t you worry dear, we’ll look after you.’

In the wake of the abolition of the GLC as well as those other metropolitan Councils in 1986, there were a great many people Who Knew who all had to be found new jobs in order to stop them ever mouthing off. Many of them are still alive and still in the system. Furthermore as they all have a history of being Little Things Hitting Each Other, at times of Paedophiles In Distress, a few of them tend to die.

Tony Travers of the LSE wrote an obituary for Mrs Morrell which was published in ‘The Guardian’ in 2010:

‘…She was one of Tony Benn’s two trusted advisers during the 1974-79 period (the other being Francis Cripps), providing political links to the rest of government as well as connections to various groups and committees on the far left of the party. She won the Islington South and Finsbury seat for Labour in the 1981 Greater London council (GLC) elections, being one of the cabal who then, within 24 hours, replaced Andrew McIntosh as council leader with Ken Livingstone.

Francis Cripps is an economist who was the grandson of Sir Stafford Cripps, Clement Attlee’s Chancellor of the Exchequer, 1947-50.

I do think it’s lovely that the Labour Party have presented such a challenge to inherited privilege.

National Eisteddfod: Dafydd Iwan to play for one last time ...

  • BBC NEWS | UK | Wales | Welsh language paper is unveiled

 

 

Morrell was a large, forceful and controversial woman who had the capacity to polarise views. Yet, when she became leader of the Inner London Education Authority (Ilea) in 1983, she found herself in the position of using this powerful personality in a grim struggle with the left-led Inner London Teachers’ Association (ILTA) over staff redeployment – an uncomfortable position for someone long associated with progressive politics at a time when the new left was in the ascendant in London and other cities.

Mrs Morrell didn’t manage to mention the en masse organised abuse of children among all that discussion and implementation of progressive politics.

….Morrell worked in government with Benn and Cripps to produce economic policies that involved worker co-operatives, an alternative economic strategy, import restrictions and currency controls. This team was devoted to expanding the scale and scope of the state.

I think that Mrs Morrell, Wedgie Benn and Sir Stafford’s grandson lost the battle somewhere along the way, although there was an expansion of the corrupt state, no matter what Thatch maintained happened after 1979.

Morrell worked with other political advisers including Jack Straw (Barbara Castle’s adviser) to provide the “dissenting ministers’ secretariat” during the 1975 European Economic Community referendum campaign. Benn and other ministers were given their freedom to lobby for a “no” vote. Benn’s diaries show that he trusted Morrell’s advice and that both were suspicious of the civil service and the security services. She was seen as a very political adviser during a government that radically expanded the number of such beneath-the-radar outsiders. No 10 was, towards the end of the Callaghan government, concerned that she might be in breach of her status as an adviser. She certainly worked hard to manoeuvre Benn towards the Labour leadership.

Livingstone and Morrell, though both seen as on the radical left of Labour at the time, were not on good terms. The former attacked the latter in the pages of Tribune over the manner of the challenge to Davies.

Running Ilea during the 1980s was not easy. There was the struggle with the Thatcher government over rate-capping that could have had serious consequences for senior figures such as Morrell who wanted, in protest over capping, the GLC to refuse to set a rate. The ILTA made life difficult for what was, by any standards, an administration with radical leftwing leanings. There were random strikes and high levels of absenteeism, often over the need to redeploy teachers.

As with the civil wars within the mental health services, the kids who were supposed to be the focus of ILEA were lost in the middle of all this…

She was then herself deposed as Ilea leader by the more emollient and mainstream Neil Fletcher in 1987.

She held a number of positions within arts organisations, including being a member of the board of directors of Sadler’s Wells and of the NCVQ performing arts advisory committee. Active in pursuing feminist issues and policy at County Hall, she was also a long-serving member of the Campaign for Labour Party Democracy.

Last year, her husband Brian, whom she had married in 1964, took his own life at their home in Islington.

Tony Benn added to Mrs Morrell’s obituary: 

‘It is not often recognised that the position of secretary of state can be a very lonely one, surrounded by ministerial colleagues who are busy with their own work, MPs who are cut off from knowing what goes on, and from the massive government departments which they run, which often have an agenda of their own. Frances and her colleague Francis Cripps maintained contact with ministerial advisers in other departments, with Labour backbenchers, with the trade union leadership and indeed almost all those with whom I came in contact. She was brilliant in performing these tasks and her judgement was always shrewd and relevant’.

Mrs Morrell and Francis Cripps Knew and kept the lid firmly nailed down on everything.

Francis Cripps now lives in Thailand.

 

An obituary written by Stuart Weir for Mrs Morrell also appeared on the website ‘Open Democracy’:

‘Frances Morrell who has just died at the age of 72 was a conviction politician of great energy, imagination, courage and commonsense. She was one of Tony Benn’s two close advisers (the other being Francis Cripps) while he was Secretary of State for industry and energy from 1974-79, and then became Labour leader of the Inner London Education Authority (ILEA) in the 1980s. She had long been active in the left of the Labour Party and was press officer for the NUS, Fabian Society and (unofficially) Tony Benn before joining him in government. Benn relied heavily on her loyalty, judgment and advice.

There are hints in her obituaries that she was part of the ‘hard left’, the trotskyist factions who disfigured Labour Party politics during the 1970s and 1980s. This was not the case. She regarded them (and their ‘soft left’ fellow travellers) with contempt long before her bruising struggles as leader of ILEA with the hard left teachers’ association in Inner London.

Morrell was a social democrat, or democratic socialist, who had a strong commitment to improving life for working class people. With Michael Meacher and me, she founded the Labour Coordinating Committee after 1979, with the aim of creating a thoughtful left programme for the party. The LCC soon became embroiled in the bitter feuding over intra-party democracy and she was one of the very few of us who stood firm for the principle of ‘one member, one vote’ against the Trotskyist demands that only members of constituency party general committees should be enfranchised (they being easier to control). It was not a popular place to be in left Labour circles.

Indeed, her contribution in and out of government could have been far greater; and what she did contribute will not be fully recognised. For Frances was an imposing and forceful figure who was very sure of her own gifts and less so about those of others, friends or foes. She was more respected than liked and after being deposed as ILEA leader in 1987 she left active politics and became active in citizenship and arts bodies.’

Stuart Weir was formerly Editor of the New Statesman, when he launched Charter 88 and Director of Democratic Audit at Essex University.

Weir’s obituary for Mrs Morrell on ‘Open Democracy’ precipitated a rush of rude comments as Little Things Started Hitting Each Other. Contributions from people occupying various positions on the left fumed at Weir’s choice of words and effectively accused him of being a capitalist running dog.

Another contributor to ‘Open Democracy’ observed that ‘The Times’ and The Torygraph didn’t think that Mrs Morrell was worth an obituary. Which just goes to show that the ‘far left’ don’t spend as much time as they should reading The Torygraph, because The Torygraph did publish an obit for Mrs Morrell and whoever wrote it seemed to believe that she did have some positive qualities, rather than simply being a dangerous idiot who colluded with a trafficking gang. The Torygraph even accompanied their obit with a photo of Mrs Morrell in her youth, looking rather Joan Baez:

‘Frances Morrell, who died on January 10 aged 72, was a controversial leader of the Inner London Education Authority (Ilea) from 1983 to 1987; she promoted anti-racism, sex education and gender consciousness in the capital’s schools before disillusioning Left-wing comrades by advocating higher standards.

 

Brinley Howard Davies, usually known as Bryn Davies (born 17 May 1944) preceded Mrs Morrell as Leader of ILEA, 1981-83. Davies graduated from Hull University and qualified as an actuary. He worked in the pensions industry, becoming a Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries in 1974. Davies worked for the TUC as Pensions Officer from that year, advising member unions on occupational and state pensions. With this came membership of the Occupation Pensions Board. He was also elected to Lambeth Borough Council in 1978 and became Deputy Leader. At the time, kids in the care of Lambeth were being abused both in children’s homes in Lambeth and in children’s homes in north Wales, where a great many were sent on long term placements (see eg. post ‘Lord Snooty The Third’).

At the beginning of 1980 the opportunity arose for Bryn Davies to go into London-wide politics in a by-election for the GLC at Vauxhall, which he won easily as a Labour candidate. With membership of the GLC came ex officio membership of ILEA. Davies aligned himself with the left under Red Ken.

The 1981 elections brought a left majority to London and on 9 May 1981 Bryn Davies was chosen to be the new Leader of ILEA at the AGM of the ILEA Labour Group, ousting Sir Ashley Bramall, although Bramall wanted to remain Leader. Mrs Morrell became Deputy Leader, replacing Mair Garside. I mentioned Mair Garside in a previous post and speculated on whether she was Welsh, Mair being a Welsh name that would not be known to many English people who think that it might be nice to give their daughter a Welsh name.

A scrap then broke out because the Labour right thought this takeover had been brutal and several of them decided to make life difficult for the new administration. Among the first decisions taken under Bryn Davies’ control was to allow GLC teachers paid leave to attend the People’s March for Jobs, but a rebellion by right-wing Labour councillors defeated the plan. ILEA continued the comprehensivisation policy and intensified it by ending ‘streaming’ within schools and insisted that Church schools end all selection as well.

The Conservatives nationally criticised the cost of schooling under ILEA, which was the highest in the country. Thatch – and most of the Tories – hated ILEA, indeed Thatch had hated ILEA since she was Education Secretary, 1970-74, under Ted Heath. Acres of print in the right wing press were devoted to the excesses of ILEA, particularly when the ‘loony left’ took it over and there was substantial concern about what was happening in some schools under ILEA. Yet no-one mentioned the transfer of hundreds of children from inner London to children’s homes and residential schools in north Wales, which charged a great deal of money for each ‘placement’, such placements frequently accompanied by complaints of the most serious abuse. London Councillors and lawyers heard about many, many complaints and the situation was ignored by everyone, although the Tories fuming at the money being spent by ILEA knew that much of that money was being spent on placements for children in north Wales.

Bryn Davies never had to deal with the abolition of ILEA – although everyone on the left in London at the time was panicking at the thought of Thatch advancing towards ILEA with her axe – because Mrs Morrell used her connections within the GLC Women’s Group to depose him in April 1983. Davies remained as a backbencher long enough to prove his left-wing credentials by supporting the strategy – subsequently held to be illegal – of refusing to set a GLC rate as a protest at rate capping.

Bryn Davies went back into pensions in 1985 as a Director of Pensions and Investment Research Consultants. Later that year he was appointed as a Research Actuary at Bacon and Woodrow and resigned from the GLC and ILEA. In 1989 Davies set up Union Pension Services Ltd., a consultancy on occupation pensions specialising in those for trade unions. He continues to work in and write about pensions. Perhaps Bryn would like to write a little bit about why so much money was spent sending children into the arms of a gang of paedophiles by people who yelled loudly about equality and those suffering in Fatcher’s Britain.

Bryn Davies’s predecessor who was knifed and thrown overboard in 1981 by Bryn’s supporters, Sir Ashley Bramall, had been Leader of the ILEA since 1970.

Sir Ernest Ashley Bramall (6 January 1916-10 February 1999) was Labour MP for Bexley, 1946-50. Bramall’s family were wealthy merchants from Hampshire, but his mother was a socialist who influenced her son to support the left. Ashley attended Westminster School briefly, before moving to Canford School. He studied at Magdalen College, Oxford in the 1930s. Bramall was elected to Chair the Oxford University Labour Club in 1938. At Oxford, he was active in the Oxford Union Society, where he often debated with Ted Heath. Bramall was Treasurer of the Union in 1939.

On the outbreak of war, Bramall joined the Northampton shire Yeomanry, into which he was commissioned in 1941. He transferred to the Reconnaissance Corps later the same year and also served at the Army Staff College in Camberley, being promoted to Major. After the end of the war, Bramall served in Germany in the Allied administration.

Bramall won Bexley for Labour in 1946, but narrowly lost the seat in 1950 to Ted Heath, with whom Bramall always remained personally friendly.

Ashley Bramall had already taken up a career outside politics by reading for the Bar and in 1949 was called to the Inner Temple.

Lord Elizabeth Butler-Sloss was a member of the Inner Temple. Butler-Sloss was the sister of Lord Michael Havers, who in his capacity as Attorney General under Thatcher, blocked the prosecution of a number of public figures for child sex offences, including the diplomat Sir Peter Hayman. Butler-Sloss herself concealed the extent of the wrongdoing of Dafydd’s Friends In The North when she Chaired the Inquiry into the Cleveland Child Abuse Scandal (see post ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas And The Culprits Were Named’). Butler-Sloss was of course one of the early Chairs of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse who resigned after days because she was just so compromised. It was also revealed that Butler-Sloss, an enthusiastic and life-long Anglican, attempted to ensure that the Church of England was not part of the IICSA. Sir Simon Hughes, who benefited from the abuse and threats from associates of Dafydd’s gang to which Peter Tatchell was subjected in the 1983 Bermondsey by-election campaign, is also a member of the Inner Temple. See post ‘The Battle For The Labour Party’s Soul’.

 

Sir Ashley Bramall was active in local politics in the Metropolitan Borough of Westminster, where the local boundaries made it extremely difficult for Labour candidates to win seats. In the mid-1950s the Council decided to change the boundaries, using the Rateable Value of property. The local Labour Party, under Bramall’s guidance and advocacy, challenged this method at a public inquiry and persuaded the Boundary Commissioner to accept a new scheme for the wards which Bramall had drawn up.

So Ashley seems to have exerted a great deal of influence over someone somewhere who’s interests might to be thought to be inconsistent with Ashley’s interests.

After this boundary change took effect in 1959 the Labour Party won enough seats to elect Ashley Bramall as an Alderman. He was elected as a Councillor to the new Westminster City Council; when Bramall lost his seat in 1968 the Conservative group blocked his election as an Alderman. In 1961 Bramall was elected to the London County Council and made the transition to the GLC when that body was set up in 1964. Ashley Bramall was one of eight people to serve as a member of the GLC throughout its existence.

Previous posts have explained how the London County Council ignored organised abuse and how the GLC colluded with it when business boomed after John Allen opened the Bryn Alyn Community in 1969.

Membership of the GLC made Bramall an ex officio member of ILEA and Bramall specialised in education issues. He was Chairman of ILEA, 1965-67 and was then chosen to lead the Labour Group. Labour won back control in 1970 and Bramall then became Leader of ILEA. Just as John Allen opened for business in north Wales.

Bramall’s ‘strong leadership’ did not prevent the scandal over the William Tyndale Junior School in Islington in 1975, which was centred upon the ‘progressive teaching methods’ at William Tyndale. Allegations were made of badly behaved out of control kids gambling their lunch money and ordering the teachers about. While things did seem to have gone badly wrong at the school – the events resulted in a 1976 speech by Jim Callaghan advocating a return to more ‘traditional methods’ of teaching and the scandal was thought to have contributed to the eventual abolition of ILEA – it is curious that Islington had a major diplomatic incident on its hands when the juniors ran riot, not because of the presence of a trafficking gang who murdered some of their victims.

In spite of the events at William Tyndale School, Bramall received a knighthood in 1975. Under Bramall, Labour retained control of ILEA in 1977, despite losing the GLC election.

 

When Thatch became PM she put pressure on local authorities, especially on ILEA, to cut spending. Bramall was opposed but was not willing to go along with the far left’s demands for an outright confrontation and legal defiance. This made the left determined to replace him, which happened when Labour won GLC control in 1981 with a new left-wing majority. Knowing this was going to happen, Bramall left a note to his replacement on his cleared desk before going to the meeting where the vote for leader was to take place.

Bramall remained on the authority ‘and it was a sign of the respect which the left had for him that they were prepared to choose him as figurehead Chairman of the Authority.’ The scrapping bastards of the ILEA had no respect for anyone, they were ripping each others jugulars out constantly, there was no loyalty to anyone on the part of anyone else. If they allowed Bramall to remain as a figurehead, it will have been because it was necessary for the benefit of everyone. Probably because Thatch was going to abolish them all and they all needed to stick together and put someone with crucial influence in Thatch’s circle at the helm to protect them all. Ashley Bramall was close to someone who did indeed have a great deal of influence over Thatch and who became of towering importance to Thatch’s Gov’t when the Falklands War began, as I will explain shortly.

In his retirement, Bramall held many public appointments, including Directorships of the Museum of London, Chairman of the Westminster College of Further Education and Honorary Secretary of the Theatres Advisory Council. He remained active in local politics as Chair of his local party branch and surprised many by his willingness to undertake menial tasks such as delivering leaflets while in his 80s. In 1996 he acted as Agent in a local by-election which saw Mair Garside, formerly his Deputy at ILEA, elected to Westminster City Council.

Bramall appeared on ‘Mastermind’ while Leader of ILEA in 1976 and was an active member of the Masterminders’ club. His second wife, Gery Bramall, who was a fellow Westminster Councillor, was also on the show.

By 1976, there had been many complaints about the abuse of children in children’s homes in north Wales, including children placed there by inner London authorities. No-one stopped the transportation of kids into the arms of Dafydd, John Allen et al and at the time, Dafydd and the gang were engaged in a rapid expansion of their business. The man who led one of the authorities which was trading in people with Dafydd, as well as that man’s wife, were able to star on BBC TV without fear that a voice might pipe up and tell everyone over what exactly Ashley Bramall was presiding. But then Jimmy Savile was busy presenting children’s TV shows and patronising adverts about fastening one’s seat belt while he molested children and vulnerable people in health and social care settings, including in children’s homes in north Wales.

 

Sir Ashley Bramall had a brother, Edwin, known as Dwin. Dwin is now known as Field Marshal Lord Bramall. In 1981 when the left-wing members of ILEA who had just deposed Sir Ashley had so much respect for him that they reinstated him as a ‘figurehead Chairman’, Edwin Bramall was Chief of General Staff ie. the Head of the British Army. Beat that for armour plating.

The Lord Bramall
Lord Bramall.jpg

Lord Bramall in the robes of a Knight Companion of the Order of the Garter, June 2006

Field Marshal Edwin Noel Westby Bramall, Baron Bramall, served as Chief of the General Staff, the professional head of the British Army, 1979-82, and as Chief of the Defence Staff, professional head of the British Armed Forces, 1982 -85.

On 4 March 2015 officers of the Metropolitan Police searched Bramall’s house near Farnham as part of the Operation Midland child sexual abuse investigation. Bramall released a statement after the search, saying: “Categorically, never have I had a connection or anything to do with the matters being investigated.” On 30 April 2015 under the same investigation Lord Bramall attended a police station in Surrey by appointment. Officers interviewed him for two hours but did not charge or arrest him. On 15 January 2016, the police confirmed that there was insufficient evidence to bring any charges and he would face no further action. Bramall’s wife Lady Bramall died in July 2015, without knowing that he would not be charged. After what ‘The Guardian’ described as a “chorus of calls” for an official apology to Lord Bramall, in October 2016, the Met Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe apologised to Bramall. On 1 September 2017 it was reported that the Metropolitan Police had paid substantial compensation to Bramall for having raided the his home “after accepting that the searches had been unjustified and should never have taken place.”

As with the compensation payments to Leon Brittan’s widow and Paul Gambaccini for the same reason, I am utterly confused by this. If these folk are indeed innocent of course I can understand why they are fuming that they have been questioned and their properties have been searched. But may I remind them that this happened to those of us who tangled with Dafydd and the gang CONSTANTLY, we spent most of our lives sitting in police cells only to be later told that all charges had been dropped. Numerous people perjured themselves again and again in open court in attempts to have me convicted and imprisoned and as case after case collapsed, the perjurers just filed out of the door and no more was said. I lost my home, I lost jobs, I and others suffered far, far more than Gambaccini, Bramall and Brittan. Harvey Proctor lost everything like we did which is why Harvey called a press conference. Harvey is now suing… No-one has ever apologised to us or paid us compensation.

Get over it Lord Bramall. Yes, it is awful to stand accused of something that you have not done but it happens across the UK every day to many people; it’s called ‘being acquitted’. As for your wife dying without knowing that you were to be cleared, that is very sad. Yet victims of Dafydd et al died in Risley Remand Centre before they were cleared; being on remand they were, in law, innocent. People died in the hospitals of north Wales and ‘in the community’ when they had not even been accused of any offence. In April 1992, five witnesses to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal were murdered by a firebomb (see post ‘The Silence Of The Welsh Lambs’). How you ever managed to extract apologies and compensation when you didn’t even get as far as standing in the dock having bent barristers accusing you of lying I do not know. Can you let the rest of us in on your magic formula please?

While Lord Bramall may well be completely innocent, his brother had a great deal of knowledge of the sort of crimes that Lord Bramall was questioned about. Sir Ashley knew that kids were being grossly abused in children’s homes in north Wales on his watch and he did not stop it. Ashley Bramall remained silent about the most serious crime until the day that he died on 10 Feb 1999. Almost exactly one year to the day before the publication of the Waterhouse Report. Ashley Bramell’s lips remained sealed throughout high profile investigations into the abuse of children in Islington, in Lambeth, in the East End and in North Wales.

Brown’s dad was Colonel of one of the Signal Regiments. He was found dead, in bed, unexpectedly, during the Waterhouse Inquiry. Two of the Angels at Ysbyty Gwynedd who threatened me and unlawfully refused to treat me and who then threatened two members of the public who raised concerns at the way that I was being treated are active in the TA; one of them, Stephen Gallagher, attained the rank of Major. Dafydd has for many years been lauded for his work with veterans and charidees/welfare associations concerned with the British Army. See post ‘Feet In Chains’. Dafydd has managed to get Army pensions for ‘veterans’ who have not been in the British Army.

None of this makes Lord Bramall guilty, but it does mean that a great many people known to Lord Bramell have done a great many things that they should not have done.

Lord Bramall is a former President of Marylebone Cricket Club and now Honrary Life Vice-President of the MCC, of which Jeffrey Archer and John Major were keen members. Lord Robert Alexander QC, the barrister who acted for Tuppence when Tuppence sued the Daily Star in 1987 and perjured himself for which Tuppence went to prison many years later, has been both the President and Chairman of the MCC (see post ‘Lord Snooty The Third’). When he was young, Tuppence worked for the UNA. Dafydd is involved with the UNA. See post ‘Tuppence And His Fragrant Wife’.

Lord Bramall is a also a Vice-President of the welfare organisation SSAFA Forces Help. Dafydd submitted a memorandum written on 18 March 2008 as evidence to Parliament re ‘PTSD and cross border issues’. In this memorandum, Dafydd waxed lyrical about all the work that she has done to assist veterans with PTSD over many years, including the work at Dafydd’s now closed ‘nursing home’ in Llandudno, Ty Gwyn. Dafydd provided a list of all the organisations who referred ‘veterans’ to him for ‘treatment’ at Ty Gwyn. One of the organisations listed was SSAFA.

Do you know Dr Dafydd Alun Jones Lord Bramall? If you do not, do you not think that SSAFA should have taken a long hard look at his track record before they referred people to him?

 

Lena Moncrieff Townsend preceded Sir Ashley Bramall as Leader of the ILEA, 1969-70. Lena was born in Cairo, the daughter of a wealthy expatriate British family. She was sent to England to Downe House, a girls’ boarding school which specialised in the daughters of colonial servants. She attended Somerville College, Oxford and the University of Heidelberg.

During WWII Lena Townsend was an organiser for the Women’s Voluntary Service and the Land Army. In 1955 she was first elected to the London County Council for her home seat of Hampstead and took a special interest in the Education Committee. Townsend was chosen to be Leader of the Opposition on the Education Committee from the early 1960s.

Townsend was an unsuccessful candidate in the first GLC election of 1964, being defeated in Camden. However, in 1967 she was more fortunate and won, which brought with it membership of the LCC Education Committee’s successor body, ILEA. The Conservatives had won narrow control of ILEA and Townsend ran for the Leadership, but lost to Christopher Chataway, who was the preferred candidate of the Conservative Party nationally.

Chataway made Townsend his Deputy, as well as Chairman of the Schools Committee. The two worked well as a team and both were clearly on the left of the Conservative Party. Townsend supported ‘Schools Councils’ for pupils to take some responsibility for the management of their schools. She was nominated as a member of the Race Relations Board Conciliation Committee for London in 1968. Townsend was a founder member of the Conservative Group for Europe.

In 1969 Christopher Chataway was elected to Parliament and stepped down from the ILEA Leadership. Townsend was chosen as his successor, and largely continued his moderate policies. When morality campaigner Mary Whitehouse attacked a BBC sex education film, Townsend defended it. She was however faced with a strike of teachers in November that year over a national pay claim.

In 1970, Townsend fought for re-election as Leader of ILEA, but Labour regained control. Townsend lost her seat in Camden but was elected as an Alderman to the GLC and was co-opted to ILEA’s Education Committee. She remained as Leader of the Opposition until February 1971 when she resigned.

Townsend remained an Alderman of the GLC until 1977 when the Aldermanic system was abolished. She was a member of several bodies, most prominently as a Governor of the London College of Fashion (and Chair of Governors, 1967-86). Townsend was President of the Anglo-Egyptian Association from 1961-87.

Townsend’s colleague and predecessor as Leader of ILEA, 1967-69, Sir Christopher Chataway, was known as an athlete and TV broadcaster as well as a Tory politician. Chataway was born in Chelsea and spent his childhood in the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan; his father was a member of the Sudan Political Service. Chataway was educated at Sherborne School and Magdalen College, Oxford, where he was a successful long-distance runner.

After leaving university, Chataway took an executive job with Guinness. It was Chataway who suggested to Sir Hugh Beaver of Guinness – who came up with the idea for the Guinness Book of Records – that his old university friends Norris and Ross McWhirter should be Editors.

Norris and Ross McWhirter were regulars on children’s TV with Roy Castle in the 1970s, but they were seriously weird. They were both of extreme right wing views and most entertainingly, in the words of one of my friends, ‘looked like Nazis’. When the McWhirters were on TV with Roy Castle they confined themselves to being wowed by kids performing ridiculous feats such as being able to eat more beans than the other kids in a set period of time – the champ would be greeted with a chorus of ‘That Makes You a Record Breaker!!!’ – but in their spare time the McWhirters did some worrying things. Noris McWhirter set up the Freedom Association, which campaigned for a number of freedoms, such as the freedom to not join a trade union (I’d appreciate that if I worked in an establishment with a closed shop led by Dafydd’s mates as named on this blog), but also for the freedom to hang people and flog people. There were a whole list of freedoms, most of which were quite mad. In Nov 1975 the McWhirters declared their intention to take on the IRA, which was certainly brave of them – although being the McWhirters their ideas for fighting the idea involved treating every Irish person living in Britain as a terrorist – but their battle ended not long after in Nov 1975 when the IRA shot Ross McWhirter dead at his home.

Noris McWhirter was involved with the Children of Courage Awards, which made temporary stars of children who were taking the world upon their shoulders when they should not have had to do that eg. children caring for severely disabled parents. I’m sure that it was nice for the kids to win an award and attend a do with people off the TV, but it would be even better if someone put in an infrastructure to help the Children of Courage on a long-term basis. Esther was of course something to do with the Children of Courage Awards.

 

Christopher Chataway knew Roger Bannister, the Top Doctor famous for running the first sub-four minute miles and one of the many who helped keep the lid on Dafydd’s activities. Chataway was Bannister’s pacemaker when Bannister performed the feat in 1954. Chataway himself broke a world record in 1954, at a London v. Moscow athletics competition at White City. The contest was televised via the Eurovision network and made Chataway a sporting celebrity; that December he won the first BBC Sports Personality of the Year award. After competing in the 1956 Olympics, Chataway retired from international athletics.

It wasn’t long after leaving Oxford that Chataway decided to aim for a political career and he thought that a suitable job in TV might help. In Aug 1955 Chataway secured a job with ITN. Chataway and Robin Day were ITN’s first two newscasters. Robin Day was a good friend of Ronnie Waterhouse and it is Waterhouse who is credited with being responsible for Day’s TV broadcasting career. Waterhouse saw an advert for ITN newscasters, took details and encouraged his pal Robin Day to go for it. Waterhouse and Day were very close mates throughout their lives and even as old boys, Day always advertised Waterhouse as the man who made him a star. The two leeches very successfully fed off each other throughout their entire lives, as well as many other people of course, they just had to pop into The Garrick on a regular basis to gorge on a bit of blood, then they were ready for a bit more toadying to corrupt politicians.

After six months, when loss-making ITV cut back on its news output, Chataway switched to the BBC and was for three and a half years one of ‘Panorama’s’ team of reporters. Christopher Chataway was the ‘Panorama’ journo who took part in an experiment which involved Chataway taking psychedelics and then being filmed. Ronnie Waterhouse was one of those who raised concerns that the allegations of abuse by former kids in care in north Wales could not be believed because the people making the allegations had been involved in the drug scene.

Chataway had been elected as a Tory to the London County Council in 1958 in Lewisham North and was then selected to stand for Parliament in the same seat. Chataway was the Tory MP for Lewisham North, 1959-66. He served as a PPS before being appointed as a junior Education Minister in Macmillan’s Gov’t in July 1962. In 1966 Chataway lost his seat.

There was organised abuse of children from disadvantaged areas of London as long ago as the 1940s and the procurement of teenagers for sex work. When the Profumo Affair blew up in the face of Macmillan’s Gov’t in 1962, the scandal centred around activities at parties at Cliveden, Bill Astor’s estate. People invited to the parties included Gov’t Ministers, members of the Royal Family, Russian spies and teenaged call girls. One of the girls at the centre of it all, Christine Keeler, had been a teenager from a difficult impoverished background who was sexually abused by her mother’s boyfriend as well as his friends and who then was persuaded into prostitution. Out of all the people who featured in the Profumo Affair, Chrstine and Stephen Ward were the two who were really hung out to dry. Christine went to prison and Stephen Ward ‘killed himself’, after being given a substantial helping hand (see post ‘In Memoriam – Bronwen, Lady Astor’). Lady Astor, Bill Astor’s wife at the time of the Profumo Affair, was the daughter of a Welsh judge. Bronwen went to school in Dolgellau. Ioan Bowen Rees went to school in Dolgellau and his father was a Headmaster of a school in the town. Bronwen was one year younger than Ioan.

In 1967 the Conservatives unexpectedly won control of ILEA and the Party leadership was horrified to discover that their newly elected Councillors were going to try to break up comprehensive schools and replace them with secondary modern and grammar schools, many Tories being supporters of comprehensives in those days. Chataway was elected an Alderman and appointed Leader of the Education Committee. Cajoling his colleagues into a more moderate line, Chataway avoided a head-on collision with Edward Short, the Labour Education Secretary and proceeded with comprehensivisation.

Chataway returned to Parliament in a by-election in Chichester in May 1969 and he then resigned as ILEA Leader. With the return of a Conservative Government in 1970, he was appointed by Heath as Minister for Posts and Telecommunications and made a Privy Counsellor. In this post he took charge of introducing commercial radio for the first time, ending the BBC monopoly. After a reshuffle in April 1972, Chataway was appointed Minister for Industrial Development.

When the Conservatives were defeated in the February 1974 election, Chataway announced his retirement from politics. He became an MD of Orion Bank, a consortium bank later acquired by one of its shareholders, the Royal Bank of Canada. Chataway stayed with Orion, later becoming Vice Chairman, for 15 years. He held various non-executive Directorships. Chataway was the first Chairman of Groundwork, the environmental charity and Hon Treasurer of the National Campaign for Electoral Reform.

Chataway’s principal outside interest was ActionAid, the overseas development charity, of which he became Hon Treasurer in 1974 and later Chairman. By the time he left the Board of Trustees in 1999, ActionAid’s annual turnover had grown to nearly £100 million. When Chataway’s son Adam decided to launch a water project in Ethiopia in memory of his fiancée killed in a road traffic accident, he chose to do it in partnership with ActionAid.

 

During the 1990s, three Hergest Unit patients, one of them being me, were involved with ActionAid. One of us had previously worked for ActionAid in London. This young woman’s life was destroyed by the mental health services in north Wales and her family also made two serious complaints about Jackie Brandt, both of which they told me were responded to with ‘lie after lie after lie’. When Brandt was finally forced to respond to my own complaint about her – some three years after I had initially complained – she lied. I and this other Hergest patient had made similar complaints about Brandt, including unlawful detention in the psych wards which existed at Ysbyty Gwynedd before the Hergest Unit was built. After the Hergest Unit was built, this young woman became massively distressed and made another complaint about the ‘service’, this time alleging that Tony Francis had turned up at her room late one night when she was sectioned and had exposed himself to her. She was denounced by all the staff as mad and she and her family were told that Tony Francis had not been in the hospital that night. This young woman stuck to her story throughout the entire time that I knew her, which was some 10 years. I have no idea whether Francis did do what she alleged, but the NHS managers and staff in north Wales lied constantly, Francis was doing a lot of very worrying things that none of us were told about at the time but of which his colleagues were fully aware and years later I found out that staff at St George’s Hospital Medical School and Springfield Hospital had documented that Dafydd was sexually abusing patients and they thought that Francis probably was as well.

The other Hergest patient who was involved with ActionAid was Patient F, who had found out that boys in the Ty Newydd children’s home in Bangor were being abused and challenged social workers about this. F subsequently received a visit from the Drugs Squad who planted Class A drugs on him and his then wife. He was violently assaulted at the police station by a Sergeant, then fitted up for arson, detained in Risley Remand Centre and then illegally imprisoned in the North Wales Hospital for a year. The Home Secretary at the time was Douglas Hurd and the Shadow Home Office team were Fattersley and Dafydd’s mate John Tilley. The rampant corruption in north Wales at the time was legendary and Fattersley knew about it. He said nothing. But then Tilley’s main interest was ensuring that the transportation to north Wales of all those kids in care from his constituency – Lambeth Central – continued and Gov’t funding for Dafydd’s ‘drugs and alcohol treatment’ initiatives (see post ‘Lord Snooty The Third’).

 

Dafydd and the gang hadn’t finished with F after he left Denbigh. He was targeted by a group of predators with links to the gang who fleeced him of his property and money. He was then deemed a Risk to his newborn baby – on the basis of lies told by the predators – and refused all access to his child, which was brought up by some of the predators in a household containing two sex offenders. A witness to all of this was found dead just before or at about the time that the Waterhouse Inquiry began. See previous posts.

One of the executives of ActionAid, John Westondorpp, came up to north Wales and stayed the night because of the substantial donation that ActionAid were given by F, in the form of an oil painting that he’d done which was auctioned for ActionAid. John Westondorpp spent a lot of time talking to the three of us and heard a bit about the activities of the mental health services in north Wales from F. When I was giving John Westondorpp a lift the next day, he asked me to ensure that F only phoned ActionAid’s Head Office if he was there. At the time I just thought  that John Westondorpp was worried that F would start chatting to office staff at length about the circumstances of Jimi Hendrix’s death – one of F’s main topics of conversation – and cause much confusion, but I’ve since found out that ActionAid was choc full of people, some of them at a senior level, who knew about Dafydd et al (see previous posts).

Here’s a few more things to think about. The oil painting that was auctioned for ActionAid was originally donated by F to the patients’ lounge in the Day Centre of the Hergest Unit. There was no attempt to hang it, it lingered in store room for weeks and the patients all wanted to know when F’s painting was going to be hung. So F asked Alun Davies who, with typical bad grace, snapped that it would be done soon enough. The painting was eventually hung in the lounge and Davies was photographed with it for the local paper. A matter of weeks later, F and me were banned from the Hergest Unit, on the grounds that we presented such a risk to Dafydd’s Life And Limb that We Should Not Pass. No-one would provide us with the evidence on which the decision had been based. We received a letter from the Hergest Unit telling us that our key workers had been removed and we had both been transferred to the ‘care’ of the forensic team, what with us being Dangerous. Shortly after this, we were arrested on the basis of the perjury of Bridget Lloyd, an Angel with the Arfon CMHT. Our case circulated around the system for months until we finally appeared before Bangor Magistrates. We were both acquitted. There was no investigation into Lloyd’s perjury.

After we were acquitted we asked for an apology. It was refused and we were told that we would remain under the ‘care’ of the forensic team. We discovered that before our trial, Tony Francis had written a Court Report for WHEN we were found guilty. Francis recommended that F should be put on probation and that I should be sent to a secure hospital. When I received my medical records years later, I found all the documents relating to this period of time. Plans to frame us, plans as to how this would be done, instructions to Bridget Lloyd as to what to say in Court, forged documents, the whole bloody lot. The event that had precipitated it all was F and I meeting two members of the Mental Health Act Commission and telling them that serious complaints about Dafydd, including him sexually exploiting patients, were never investigated. See previous posts for the full details.

In the wake of us being acquitted but being treated as though we had been found guilty of a serious crime, F told me that he’d had enough of that lot and that he would be asking for his painting back, because the degree of abuse to which we (as well as other patients) were being subjected by Alun Davies and the Arfon CMHT was getting beyond the pale. By this time, Davies had begun his campaign to close the Day Centre and patients were being very obviously neglected and were beginning to kill themselves at a frighteningly high rate. Davies wrote F a laughably ridiculous letter, hinting at F’s alleged insanity to be requesting his painting back ‘when that was given as a gift’. F said oh fuck off, I want my painting back and he retrieved it.

This was how the painting ended up being offered to ActionAid just weeks later.

When did John Westondorpp come and stay with us Empowered Service Users on Anglesey? The beginning of 2001. The year following the publication of the Waterhouse Report, when the media was still full of allegations that Waterhouse had been a huge cover-up and that a lot of people in senior positions had got away with running a huge trafficking ring and had never even been named.

‘We didn’t know.’

John Westondorpp stayed in my bloody house overnight and heard some of the witnesses talking about what had happened to them at first hand.

In June 2001, some four months after John Westondorpp Knew Nuzzing, this man was elected as the Tory MP for Witney (see post ‘Lord Snooty The Third’):

David Cameron official.jpg

 

Snooty III’s mum served as a magistrate in Oxford. By the time that John Westondorpp was kipping at our house, Professor Mark Williams, who spent years throughout the 1980s and 90s working with Dafydd, Tony Francis and the gang in north Wales, was well on his way to his Chair at Oxford University and indeed may have even bagged it by then.

‘We didn’t know.’

 

In 1991 Chataway was appointed chairman of the Civil Aviation Authority. He supported his friend Chris Brasher when he established the London Marathon and was President of the Commonwealth Games Council for England, 1990-09. He was knighted in 1995 for services to aviation.

In the 2005 General Election, Chataway’s stepson Charles Walker was elected as Conservative MP for Broxbourne. Chataway’s brother-in-law was the former Conservative MP Peter Horden.

Chataway suffered from cancer for the last two and a half years of his life. Chataway died aged 82 at St John’s Hospice in north west London in January 2014.

There’s nothing like charidee is there.

 

Six years ago, someone in Gwynedd told me that the Conservative Club had donated I think it was a snooker table to the Hergest Unit. The Conservative Club were upset and appalled at the rudeness and disrespect that had been shown towards them by the Hergest Unit after the donation and were even more upset when they discovered that the snooker table had been dumped in a store room and forgotten about and that patients weren’t even aware that the donation had been made. That was the Alun Davies way of conducting business. You appear in the local paper while being hailed as a hero at the same time as treating people absolutely appallingly. Davies was Chairman of Bangor Lions Club, a charidee. After Davies finally retired from the NHS, leaving the Hergest Unit a smouldering mess and a good many patients cold in their graves, Davies became the CEO of St David’s Hospice in Llandudno, being known for his charidee work (see previous posts). I was told on a number of occasions by different people that Davies used his charidee work as a cover for his corruption. When Davies was CEO of St David’s Hospice, the ‘Coronation Street’ actor William Roache – who went to Rydal School in north Wales – was Patron. One of Davies’s big fund-raising bonanzas at St David’s, ‘The Giddy Goat’ festival, starred Paul Merton, Marcus Brigstocke and Phil Jupitus. I have no idea whether they realised to whom they were giving free PR.

 

 

While researching for a future post, yesterday I was watching some vintage news clips from the 1980s featuring the troubled London boroughs which were sending so many kids to Dafydd and John Allen et al at such great expense. Among the many gems I came across one reporting on the very deep mess that Brent Council had found themselves in. The news report was actually about the massive amount of money that Brent was spending on placing homeless people in ‘hotels’ – older readers will remember the sort of hotels that such folk used to end up in, they were not hotels where tourists would kip, not even for one night – while massive amounts of accommodation managed by Brent Council remained empty. An official from Brent was interviewed who proudly told the journo that Brent was busy evicting squatters and was spending a lot of money doing this, because these squatters were disgusting.

Brent Council in the 1980s: I only ever knew of one spoilt middle-class brat who squatted because she didn’t want to pay rent. Everyone else whom I knew who squatted did it because they didn’t have anywhere to live. Furthermore they squatted in flats which Councils like yours had allowed to become uninhabitable and the first thing that they did when they occupied the place was to fix it up and decorate it…

I have blogged much about Brent in previous posts (see eg. post ‘Hey, Hey DAJ, How Many Kids Have You Killed Today?’) with regard to the abuse and neglect of kids in the care of that Council, in particular the death of Jasmine Beckford in 1984. Mary Turner, the President of the GMB, 1997-2017, worked in Brent schools and was a GMB union rep throughout the time that Jasmine was being abused and slowly murdered. Mary Turner had a special interest in wimmin’s and children’s issues. Mary didn’t even acknowledge Jasmine’s death (see post ‘Mary Turner – An Appreciation’). Harriet Harman worked in Brent Law Centre throughout the chaos, as did her boyfriend Jack Dromey, who became Mr Harriet Harman and like Harriet ended up as a Labour MP. The Labour MP for Brent East, 1987-2001 was Red Ken and the Labour MP for Brent South, 1987-2005, was Paul Boateng. Red Ken and Boateng knew about the scandalous abuse and neglect of children and they knew about Dafydd’s gang. See previous posts.

One of the most senior Top Doctors in the Central Middlesex Hospital which served Brent was Sir Francis Avery Jones. Jones was Welsh and had links with Dafydd’s gang. See post ‘Hey, Hey DAJ, How Many Kids Have You Killed Today?’.

When reading a bit more about events in Brent recently, I discovered that one of the most entertaining Tory MPs of the Thatcher years was MP for Brent North, 1974-97. I am talking of Sir Rhodes ‘Whack-O!’ Boyson, who caused everyone in whichever house I was watching ‘Question Time’ in to roll around laughing. Rhodes was just fantastic, he was obsessed with the necessity of reintroducing The Cane into schools. Across the Bottoms Of Boys. But sparingly. Not all Bottoms had to be Caned, just some Bottoms. I never fathomed how Rhodes was going to distinguish between a Bottom in need of the Cane and another Bottom, but Sir Rhodes spent so much time dwelling on the subject that he will have had it all worked out. People like Dimbleby would always introduce Rhodes with reference to everyone knowing him because of his mutton chop whiskers and his strong Lancashire accent and studiously not mention that Rhodes was barking mad and obsessed with schoolboys’ Bottoms. Rhodes spent so much time discussing the need to Cane Bottoms that it eclipsed all of his other policy ideas, but they all had a crazed far-right deep tint with a touch of the 19th century. Brown used to maintain that he could imagine Rhodes Boyson being the Headmaster of a rather mediocre public school.

When I talk to young people and tell them about some of the things that happened under Thatch, they have great trouble believing me and I feel like one of Monty Python’s Four Yorkshiremen. But then I was always gobsmacked that someone like Rhodes Boyson actually found his way into Gov’t, even under the excesses of Thatch.

Rhodes Boyson waas born in Haslingdon, Lancashire, the son of Alderman William Boyson MBE JP. Boyson was educated at Haslington Grammar School, University College Cardiff, the University of Manchester, the LSE and Corpus Christ College, Cambridge. He was awarded his PhD in 1967 by London University.

Boyson served with the Royal Navy in WWII and was based in India at the time of Independence. So he knew about the activities of Lord Louis Mountbatten (see post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’).

Boyson was a Methodist lay preacher from his early 20s. The child molester George Thomas, who was Speaker of the House throughout much of Boyson’s Parliamentary career, was one of the most high profile figures in the Methodist Church in the middle years of the 20th century as well as a Methodist lay preacher who had preached in virtually every town in the UK. Boyson will have definitely known George Thomas via the Methodist Church as well as the Commons.

Boyson became a teacher in 1950 and later a Headmaster, first at Lea Bank Secondary Modern School in Rossendale (1955–61), then at Robert Montefiore Secondary School, Stepney (1961–66) and finally from 1967–1974 at Highbury Grove School, a new all-boys’ comprehensive in Islington of which he was the founding Head teacher. At Highbury Grove, Boyson introduced an unfashionably traditional regime, with strictly enforced uniforms and Caning of Bottoms . This proved so popular with local parents that the school was consistently oversubscribed.

From 1957 to 1961 Boyson was a Labour Councillor in Haslingden, Lancashire, where his father was at that time a Labour Alderman and had been a trade union secretary.

Lancashire County Council had a problem with organised abuse of children and vulnerable people. Ioan Bowen Rees, the Chief Executive of Gwynedd County Council when the paedophile gang ran riot in Gwynedd children’s homes, had worked as a solicitor for Lancashire County Council for a number of years after a stint working as a solicitor for Denbighshire County Council once he had graduated in from Oxford in the mid-1950s. Bowen Rees subsequently worked for the local authorities of Cardiff and Dyfed where abuse gangs linked with Dafydd et al in north Wales operated.

Boyson left the Labour Party in 1964, joining the Conservative Party three years later. He later wrote:

My own move to Conservative party membership arose from the effect of my research into the cotton industry and the Manchester school of liberal economic philosophy. Here was a body of men who believed that a free enterprise economy was not only efficient but brought moral growth to all men. The employer risked his capital on his judgement and must care for his workers as part of his stock in trade, and the workers would be enabled to become prosperous and through their own industry, thrift and moral courage could establish their own business enterprises and their personal independence to the advantage of themselves, their families and society. Cobden had a moral view of society and believed that free enterprise would not only bring prosperity but social harmony at home and peace abroad within a system of universal free trade.

 

Boyson was elected to the Commons in Feb 1974. He was Parliamentary Under-Secretary at the Department of Education and Science, May 1979-June 1983, under Secretary of State Mark Carlisle and then Keith Joseph, both of whom knew about the abuse of children in schools in north Wales as well as elsewhere, particularly in schools for kids with special needs and who concealed it.

Mark Carlisle, Baron Carlisle of Bucklow, was MP for Runcorn, 1964-83 and then for Warrington South until 1987. Carlisle served as Secretary of State for Education and Science, 1979-81. Risley Remand Centre was located at Warrington and Carlisle’s constituents included many of the staff of Risley. The brutality towards Risley inmates on the part of the staff was appalling, even in the ‘hospital wing’, where nearly everyone was a kid from the children’s homes in north Wales or one of Dafydd’s patients. Kids in care and psych patients were constantly found dead at Risley and Dafydd and the gang had fitted most of those detained out there up anyway. Medical ‘care’ was appalling, but a visiting clap clinic was prioritised. For inmates from children’s homes, some of whom were under 15 yrs old. Carlisle knew about all this and as long ago as 1973 was wheeled out to answer questions in the House after the number of deaths of inmates under the age of 16 yrs there was making even those enjoying a free lunch in the Commons blanch. Carlisle saw no real reasons to worry about what was happening at Risley, so the abuse and the deaths continued. See post ‘Include Me Out’. Carlisle was rewarded for his loyal service to a gang of murdering paedophiles in November 1987 when he was created a life peer.

Carlisle was a barrister and a member of Gray’s Inn, along with Dafydd’s (and Ronnie Waterhouse’s) mate and umbrella Sir William Mars-Jones.

Sir Keith Joseph, Secretary of State for Education and Science, 1981-86, knew that people – including the most senior staff -in UCNW were facilitating the paedophile gang in north Wales/Cheshire. Joseph was the MP for Leeds North East, 1956-87, at Jimmy Savile HQ. Joseph served as Secretary of State for Social Services, 1970-74, under Heath and while in that post had concealed the abuse of children and the crimes of Dafydd’s gang in north Wales, along with his adviser, Barbara Kahan. Kahan was a senior social worker, who in tandem with her husband the child psychiatrist Dr Vladimir Kahan, had colluded with abuse of children for years, particularly in Oxfordshire where the Kahans were based. See post ‘Always On The Side Of The Children’. See previous posts for more information re Sir Keith Joseph.

Boyson served as Minister of State for Social Security June 1983-Sept 1984, specifically as Minister for the Disabled no less, under Secretary of State Norman Fowler, who knew exactly what was Dafydd et al were up to. Boyson and Fowler knew that Mary Wynch was on her way to the Master of the Rolls…

Rhodes was then Minister for N Ireland, Sept 1984-Sept 1986. A move from a job dealing with Dafydd and the gang to a job in N Ireland was a path followed by many Ministers and a logical step because the gangsters in north Wales and their crooked police officer chums were closely linked to Kincora and the associated crime in N Ireland.

Patient F encountered his first serious problems with Dafydd, the gang and the bent officers of the North Wales Police in 1986.

Sir Rhodes Minister for Local Government Sept 1986-June 87. It was known known that at that time, that there was organised abuse of children in care in numerous local authorities across the UK and that the gangs in each authority were linked and that the criminal network had spread into Europe. Dafydd’s gang fessed up and offered Mary compensation in 1985. They then refused to pay her and had a good laugh while telling Mary that she have to return to Court to enforce payment. Alison Taylor had written to Thatcher herself and to the DHSS about the abuse of kids in care and was sacked by Gwynedd County Council in November 1987. Brown and I continued to complain/raise concerns. It was while Boyson was Minister for Local Gov’t that Dafydd et al tried to frame and imprison me for ‘attempting to stab a doctor’. Risley Remand Centre, the Mental Health Act Commission and Clwyd and Gwynedd Health Authorities were all on board but the plan unravelled when Sgt Morgan at Bangor Police Station and Jeff Crowther, a nursing officer at Ysbyty Gwynedd, did not tell as many lies as were required. See previous posts.

Rhodes Boyson could not have been unaware of the enormous problem existing in so many local authorities with regard to the trafficking rings which were, by the late 1980s, all linked. Boyson would also have known that Dafydd et al were at the centre of it all and were responsible for a production line in child/young and vulnerable sex workers in north Wales. Ollie Brooke had been imprisoned four months before Boyson was appointed Minister for Local Gov’t and was released just as Boyson left the job. Ollie was part of the gang run by Wandsworth Council, Thatcher’s flagship Tory-led Council.

It was when Boyson was concerned with local Gov’t that the police began to ask questions about the gang in Leicester, of which Greville Janner was a member. By 1986, Brown was living in Leicester doing his PhD, only to find himself obstructed as much as possible by his supervisors at Leicester University’s Centre for Mass Media Research. They were all very much part of the Radical Left and after I began writing this blog I was told that the man behind all those attempts to hold Brown back was none other than the God of Cultural Sociology, Professor Stuart Hall (see post ‘Life In Cold Blood’).

 

 

Anyone for yet another Festschrift and a Celebration of dear old Stuart’s Life and His Huge Contribution to Sociology? How about it Laurie, I’m sure that you can spare a few hours away from your right-on commitments and media work to pay yet another tribute to the man who famously coined the phrase ‘It Ain’t Half Racist Mum’.

They Ain’t Half A Load Of Spineless Bastards Mum!

 

Prof Hall might as well have presented ‘It’s a Knockout’…

Stuart Hall

 

Thinking Allowed?? Not if it involves challenging an insane old psychiatrist on Anglesey it isn’t. Meanwhile Laurie will be reminiscing about this days when he taught sociology to bank robbers in a high security prison on Radio 4 near you…

Sir Rhodes served as Chairman of the National Council for Educational Standards.

Rhodes Boyson was a severe critic of what he regarded as the influence of “mindless sociologists” who produced “mush which has corrupted the national character”, noting in 1978 that; “it has not gone unnoticed that crime has increased parallel with the number of social workers”. The ‘Daily Mirror’ responded with an editorial comment “that crime has also increased parallel with speeches from Dr. Boyson”. The Mirror wouldn’t have dared commented that those social workers were busy delivering children procured for sex work to Boyson’s Ministerial colleague Sir Peter Morrison and others. Furthermore Stuart Hall and Laurie Taylor did Sir Rhodes a pretty big favour in concealing it all. Anyone for educational standards?

As someone who was condoning a murdering paedophile gang in north Wales which specialised in producing under-aged rent boys, Boyson was of course ‘a strong opponent of homosexuality and a supporter of Section 28’. He said:

It is wrong biblically, is homosexuality. It is unnatural. AIDS is part of the fruits of the permissive society. The regular one-man, one-woman marriage would not put us at risk in this way. If we could wipe out homosexual practices, then Aids would die out. 

Boyson might or might not have known that in Africa, AIDS was spread mostly by heterosexual sex. He will have known that Thatch abandoned her opposition to the AIDS public education programme when Top Doctor Sir Donald Acheson – who concealed the crimes of Dafydd et al – explained slowly and clearly to her that AIDS kills people, that there was no cure and that her pal and Minister Peter Morrison, as well as a few others close to her heart eg. George Thomas, were having gay sex with rent boys and that this could well kill them. See post ‘Professor Prestigious And His Associates’. Boyson was also wilfully ignoring a huge prostitution racket run by Dafydd et al which was as far removed from one man-one woman marriage as was possible. Sex parties with middle aged/elderly men and young boys; orgies with a variety of ages, genders and tastes; drunken piss-ups held at at Dafydd’s houses under the guise of ‘clinics’; children and young people trafficked across to Holland and to France for sex work…

Sir Rhodes was one of those interviewed by Ali G and Ali G did his usual of asking Sir Rhodes if he enjoyed the company of women who drink from the hairy cup and whether Sir Rhodes enjoyed pursuing muff. I’ve got no idea whether Boyson even knew what Ali G was talking about, but when Ali G asked Whack-O! if he enjoyed reading porn, Boyson explained that he hated porn and how much damage it was doing to society. Dafydd’s gang made a bomb out of porn and they didn’t just stop at pics for ‘Men Only’ either. Dafydd’s lot specialised in kiddie porn and bestiality.

Boyson was a supporter of the Monday Club and frequently addressed them. At the Conservative Party Annual Conference at Blackpool on 10 October 1991 he was the principal speaker at a Club fringe meeting on the subject of A Conservative Revolution in Education. In 1991 the North Wales Police were midway throughout their investigation into the possibility of a VIP paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire. Although in 1992 they closed the investigation stating that there was ‘no evidence’ of any ring, a number of people had been and would be convicted of the abuse of children in north Wales/Cheshire, including teachers.

Boyson lost his Brent North seat in the Labour landslide of 1997, partly because of his perceived lack of commitment to the campaign to retain Edgeware General Hospital; in 2001, the seat, no longer contested by Boyson, swung further to Labour, as Miranda continued to conceal what had happened in north Wales as well as the sorry state of the NHS.

In 2007, Boyson received an honorary degree from the University of Buckingham, the UK’s first private university of which Thatcher became Chancellor. Lord Max Beloff, a friend of Ioan Bowen Rees, was involved with the establishment of the University of Buckingham. It was Lord Max’s son Michael Beloff QC who, in his capacity as legal adviser to Municipal Mutual, the insurers of Clwyd County Council as well as the North Wales Police, ensured that the 1996 Jillings Report into the abuse of children in the care of Clwyd County Council since 1974 was completely suppressed and made available only to lawyers and insurers, not even to Councillors. Jillings had however made it clear that the abuse of children in Clwyd had been so severe and so long-lasting that what had happened was indefensible. Michael Beloff QC was a colleague of Cherie Booth and a good friend of her and Miranda; he was a visitor to Chequers when Miranda was PM.

Miranda is someone else who maintains that he has never read porn, or at least that’s what he told Paxo when Paxo listed the titles of the porn mags published by someone with whom Miranda had doings.

 

Rhodes Boyson married Violet Burletson in 1946 and they had two daughters. The couple divorced in 1971, after which he married Florette MacFarlane, a teacher. Boyson and his second wife lived in Pinner, northwest London, until he moved into a nursing home in Harefield, where he died aged 87 in 2012. Which was the year in which Tony Francis killed himself as Operation Pallial got underway. Boyson left more than £2,000,000 in his will, the majority of it going to his wife. Now where did Rhodes of the Bottoms Obsession who Colluded With Traffickers get his paws on that sort of money? Boyson’s wife died in 2018, in possession of that £2 million quid that had nothing to do with the sex, porn and drugs empire run by Dafydd et al in north Wales.

 

Two further interesting facts:

Rob Evans, who was the senior manager in Gwynedd Social Services responsible for children’s homes when the paedophile gang operated with impunity in those homes, trained at Leicester University. Lisa Nandy’s mum and dad might have known Rob! After managing children’s homes in which children were battered, raped, trafficked and found dead, Rob was appointed Gwynedd Social Service’s senior manager responsible for mental health. Psych patients were neglected, abused and found dead. See previous posts.

Years after Brown’s dad was found suddenly and unexpectedly dead in bed during the Waterhouse Inquiry, Brown’s mum was found suddenly and unexpectedly dead in bed, just after I had finished my PhD in 2005. When all those paedophiles’ friends were really, really angry, because not only had the attempt to fit me up for ‘threatening to kill Alun Davies’ the year before backfired but now I had a PhD and I had started publishing about the mental health services with Brown. Brown’s mum and I had kept in touch right from when I first left Somerset for UCNW. She knew much of what had happened to me in north Wales and we wrote to each other regularly.

 

The Top Docs continue what I suspect is their fight-back against ‘Service Shenanigans’. Professor Sir Michael Marmot was on the Radio 4 news headlines this morning, asking the nation if they knew that learning disabled people die 20 years before people who don’t have learning disabilities and it really is shocking and it is an result of poverty, unemployment and of course loneliness. Not only is the premature death of people with learning disabilities far from a new revelation, but Michael Marmot knows as well as I do is that it is substantially a consequence of institutional discrimination on the part of the NHS. ‘Do Not Resuscitate.’ Read Dr Sara Ryan’s blog Marmot, the NHS killed her son and not one person involved was dismissed. Furthermore, Sara is a lot more honest about the difficulties that learning disabled people face than you are.

 

Oh just belt up Top Docs, it is all indefensible, utterly indefensible. I am only still alive because of Brown, who, when he did the crucial bit, was aged between 17 and 24. He’s not a Sir and he’s not a Lord and it took him a long time to even become Prof because of your combined efforts. For much of the time he was an undergrad you fuckwits and he was still more effective than you.

 

 

 

Lord Snooty The Third

My post ‘The Battle For The Labour Party’s Soul’ discussed the shenanigans in the Bermondsey Labour Party in the 1980s and the homophobic hate campaign against Peter Tatchell, which was orchestrated by a group of people who were not gay rights activists like Tatchell, but who were instead sending numerous children in the care of Southwark Borough Council – Southwark Borough Council covered Bermondsey as well as Peckham and Dulwich – into the embrace of Dafydd’s trafficking gang in north Wales and who continued to do this even in the wake of the most serious complaints about the abuse of Southwark children while they were in children’s homes in north Wales.

A trafficking racket was not the only criminal activity facilitated. Bob Mellish, the Labour MP for Bermondsey, 1946-82, was also involved in large scale civic corruption and was a business associate of the notoriously crooked former Leader of Newcastle-upon-Tyne City Council, 1960-65, T. Dan Smith, who’s empire was originally in the North East of England but who caused havoc across much of the UK during the 1960s and 70s as his empire expanded (see previous posts). T. Dan Smith specialised in corruption with regard to planning and building in local authorities and ended up going to prison. Bob Mellish’s Ministerial responsibilities brought him into contact with the Civil Service mandarin Dame Evelyn Sharp who oiled the wheels of such corruption in the fields of planning and construction, as well as a number of Ministers and Secretaries of State who concealed the organised abuse and associated crime of Dafydd and linked gangs. Mellish was networked with other MPs, some of whom such as Simon Hughes were not in the Labour Party themselves but who joined in the bashing of Tatchell for their own benefit and who also kept quiet about the organised abuse and local authority corruption.

I also explained in ‘The Battle For The Labour Party’s Soul’ how Mellish, who was styled as the Authentic Voice Of The Working Class Cockney, did Thatcher’s Gov’t a massive favour by accepting Michael Heseltine’s offer of an appointment as the Vice-Chairman of the LDDC (London Docklands Development Corporation) in 1981. The Labour Party was opposed to the LDDC but Friend Of The Common People Mellish was happy to help Thatch out nonetheless. The LDDC decimated the lives and opportunities of the disadvantaged citizens of Mellish’s constituency and the surrounding area.

My post ‘The Bodies Beneath Canary Wharf’ described the role of local politicians in Tower Hamlets such as Sir Robin Wales in the development of Docklands, again resulting in very little benefit to the local people. Dafydd’s gang operated in Tower Hamlets as well as Shoreditch (see posts eg. ‘Tower Hamlets, Paul Boateng and Tessa Jowell’ and ‘Apocalypse Now’) and a number of Top Doctors/NHS personnel ensured that they picked up more than a few crumbs from the table as Thatcher’s Gov’t bought off everyone who knew about the trade in disadvantaged children and young people between London and north Wales. One person who did very nicely out of it all was Sir Sam Everington, who as a young Top Doctor in the 1980s – Everington is a barrister as well – gained himself a reputation as the BMA’s in-house radical, raising concerns about the hours and working conditions of junior Top Doctors and racism in medicine. Sam was a leading light in the BMA when the BMA was providing Dr Tony Francis and Dafydd et al in north Wales with advice and support with regard to having me framed for serious crimes and transferred to a high security psychiatric hospital. Not only did Sam not mention a word about this or the abuse of vulnerable people which was being facilitated by those we know and love, but Sam evolved into exactly the sort of complacent, privileged old BMA fart whom he once pretended that he wanted to cleanse medicine of.

The Chairman of the LDDC was Sir Nigel Broackes, the founder of Trafalgar House, one of the UK’s largest contracting businesses. Broackes was born in Wakefield, Yorkshire – Jimmy Savile country – and was educated at Brambletye School, Sussex and Stowe School. Broakes joined Stewart & Hughman, a firm of Lloyd’s underwriters, upon leaving school. He then did his national service and was commissioned into the Royal Armoured Corps in 1953. 

After completing his national service, with the support of Eastern International, a small finance house, Broackes started buying up bomb sites in London. Eastern International became Trafalgar House and Broackes took a 21% stake in the business when it was first listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1963. In 1964 the company took a 49% stake in Bridge Walker, a construction company owned by Victor Matthews. Broackes and Matthews subsequently worked together to build Trafalgar House into a huge business. Trafalgar House owned the Cunard Line, 1971-98, although Broackes resigned in 1992 following heavy losses associated with a diversification into offshore activities.

Broackes was appointed Chairman of the LDDC in 1979. He resigned from that post in 1984 and in the same year was knighted for his role at the LDDC.

1984 was the year that the threats from the Top Doctors began to reign down upon Brown and I. Mary Wynch was on her way to the Master of the Rolls by then and Dafydd and the paedophiles had sent up distress flares, resulting in the arrival of reinforcements both in UCNW (Bangor University) and the local NHS, in the form of people such as Professor Eric Sunderland, Tony and Sadie Francis and Dr Lyndon Miles (see previous posts). In 1984 Alison Taylor had begun to blow the whistle on the abuse of children in care in north Wales and had been called to a disciplinary hearing by Gwynedd County Council. In Oct 1984, Alison’s concerns about the welfare of children in care in north Wales were denounced as ‘unjustified’ by Detective Inspector Gregson.

The security services had Brown and I under surveillance by 1984 (see previous posts), but nobody thought to tell us the level of concern that there was regarding the activities of the health and social care sectors in north Wales. Instead, MI5 watched Gwynne the lobotomist and Dr D.G.E. Wood forge medical records and lie about us to third parties. They watched those we know and love do that to other witnesses as well. We are now being told by Gov’t and the police that it was difficult bringing that gang to justice because ‘the witnesses were not considered credible’. Of course we weren’t, MI5 watched in silence as we were smeared and fitted up for crimes to ensure that we could be denounced as, er, not credible.

There was a piece on The Guardian Online yesterday about an activist group called ‘Sisters Uncut’ who are going apeshit about witnesses/victims of sex offenders being forced to hand over personal information such as counselling and medical records to the police in the event of their (alleged) assailants being prosecuted. The info is made available to the defence and to their alleged assailants and is used to discredit the complainants. This has been standard practice for years. It is why so many ludicrous things were written about me on my medical records, without my knowledge and it is why it took me more than 20 years and a High Court case to obtain copies of my own records. Which of course contained evidence of serious wrongdoing on the part of everyone who had fitted me up.

Sisters Uncut: I do believe that people accused should have fair trials. The answer, in terms of defending yourselves if you are the complainant, is to not go near a counsellor or a Top Doctor. They are not there to help you. They are corrupt to the core and they are there to assist a corrupt state apparatus which has abused thousands of vulnerable citizens. Please, no matter how bad you feel, keep away from them until those professions have been completely cleaned up (which is going to take a very long time). The biggest mistake that I ever made was to have anything to do with the vile perjuring bastards. Dafydd and Gwynne the lobotomist were recorded undercover trying to get their legs over me and others and they then received 100% protection and support from the state and their proud ‘profession’ when we complained. By the way, Dafydd et al also used their positions to extract information from patients about people who were a risk to those patients and Dafydd et al then contacted those people and did deals with them; they are 100% toxic.

Rebel police people who are banging on at me to name more Somerset folk from years ago whom you claim gave info to Dafydd et al in order to smear me: No. You knew what they were doing at the time – it is how you are able to give me details now all these years later – everyone was under surveillance but the info was used to attack Brown and me and our supporters. You chose to do that, you didn’t want us, you wanted a gang of criminals. That’s what you have got. If you want to mount prosecutions against them, then tell the security services to release the undercover recordings.  I’m not interested in constantly arguing the toss and defending myself against ludicrous allegations which everyone knew were untrue at the time. I’ll make the same comment to you as I always did to that silly old twat Dafydd and his minions when they demanded that I give them ‘my side of the story’ after they had made things up about me and written it down as fact: No, piss off. You’ve know what lies you have told and I am not interested in the insanities of Top Docs or Top Cops who’ve now got egg on their faces. A lot of people told the most disgusting lies about Brown and me to protect a gang of paedophiles and you went along with them. Live with it.

 

Nigel Broackes married Joyce Horne and they had two children. Whether Joyce Horne is any relation to Bangor University’s Professor Pauline Horne, the long-standing mistress of Prof Fergus Lowe and someone who knew all about Dafydd and the gang (see post ‘Feet In Chains’) I do not know. Broackes died in Chelsea, in Sept 1999, five months before the publication of the Waterhouse Report.

 

So Dafydd and the gang had Mr Big of the LDDC and Trafalgar House to help cover their arses throughout the many cover-ups. Although Mr Big was yet another person who could have named names who pegged out just before Ronnie Waterhouse finished the job.

Ioan Bowen Rees, Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council while the paedophile gang made merry in the Council’s children’s homes and who was County Secretary of Dyfed County Council when a gang linked to Dafydd’s gang operated in the Social Services in Dyfed, died in May 1999. Lord Max Beloff, Ioan’s friend, died in March 1999. Lord Max was one of the movers and shakers behind the private University of Buckingham, Thatch’s favourite University of which Thatch became Chancellor (see previous post). Lord Max was the dad of Michael Beloff QC, Cherie’s colleague and pal of both Cherie and Miranda. It was Michael Beloff QC who was the legal adviser to Municipal Mutual, the insurers of the North Wales Police and Clwyd County Council and who ensured that the Jillings Report of 1996 into the abuse of children in the care of Clwyd County Council since 1974, was not made available to anyone at all, not even to Clwyd’s Councillors (see post ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake…’).

 

Albert Joseph Ward, known as Reg Ward, was the first Chief Executive of the LDCC, 1981-88. Reg was the son of a miner and was born in the Forest of Dean. He went to the East Dean Grammar School, Cinderford, Gloucestershire. Reg joined the RAF and when working as a pilot, he was encouraged to apply for university. He subsequently went to Manchester University and after graduating joined the Inland Revenue as a Tax Inspector.

In his mid-30s Ward had a third change of career, leaving the Inland Revenue for a job as administrator of the architecture department at Lancashire County Council. Ioan Bowen Rees worked as a solicitor for Lancashire County Council for a period of time from the mid-late 1950s. So Reg’s time working for Lancashire CC will have overlapped with Ioan’s and they will have been of about the same seniority in the Council.

A series of local government appointments followed, culminating in Reg becoming Chief Executive of the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham and later of Hereford and Worcester County Council.

The Borough of Hammersmith was responsible for the management of Stamford House Remand Home in Shepherd’s Bush, which during the 1960s and 70s was the focus of successive scandals regarding the sexual abuse of the young people housed there; at that time such complaints very rarely saw the light of day, so it is likely that, as the inmates of Stamford House alleged, the abuse was serious (see post ‘The Case Of The King’s Sperm’).

One of those working at Stamford House at the time of the complaints was Peter Clarke. Peter Clarke was appointed as the first Children’s Commissioner for Wales, 2001-08. Wales was the first nation to install a Children’s Commissioner and was particularly proud of leading the world in this. The Children’s Commissioner was appointed on the recommendation of Sir Ronnie Waterhouse to ensure That It Never Happened Again, although of course according to Ronnie, not very much did happen. Before becoming Children’s Commissioner, Peter Clarke dropped in to do a stint with many other favourite organisations of the paedophile gang, such as being a community care adviser with the Spastics Society (SCOPE) (abuse of clients in the care of SCOPE has been alleged) from 1985 – paedophiles’ friend and Blair’s former PPS David Hanson worked for SCOPE at the time and the Tory Tim Yeo, who ignored organised abuse in various Ministerial roles, was Chief Exec of SCOPE, 1980-83. Clarke was Director of the mental health charidee Rethink – who ignored a letter from me about the gang in north Wales – from 1991. Clarke followed that up with a post as Director of ChildLine Cymru from 1995, when there were allegations that ChildLine Cymru ignored calls from kids in care from north Wales reporting abuse.  Before undertaking senior roles with charidees which colluded with Dafydd and the gang, Peter Clarke worked as a social worker in London and Brighton, which were the locations of the brothels owned by John Allen to which children were trafficked. Peter Clarke studied at the Universities of Sussex and Warwick (you’ve guessed it…) and he originally came from Llandudno, as did Gwynne the lobotomist and many other key facilitators of the north Wales gang. For more on Peter’s glittering career, see post ‘Yet Mote Inglorious Bastards’.

Of course Peter Clarke was going to be Wales’s first Children’s Commissioner, Ronnie probably tailored the job spec especially for him.

  • L Sir Ronald Waterhouse And Mr Morris John Le Fleming ...
  • BBC News | WALES | Guidelines for sex abuse inquiries

With regard to Hereford and Worcestershire County Council, it was David Tombs, who was once their Director of Social Services, who in 2014 made headlines when he told journos that in the 1990s he had acquired a list of VIP paedophiles, some of whom lived in Herefordshire and Worcestershire and was told by officials in the DoH that he’d never get anywhere if he tried to deal with this matter, because there are ‘too many of them over there’, allegedly a reference to Westminster crawling with child molesters. After I began writing this blog, I received an e mail from a retired Director of Social Services in England who told me that David Tombs had for years colluded with child abuse in high places and only went public recently when he feared that it was all going to unravel. The social work academic Peter Righton, who in his published work promoted sex between adults and children, lived in the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Social Services area (see previous posts). When Ronnie Waterhouse retired, he bought a house in Herefordshire; he was living there by the time that the Waterhouse Inquiry began. Morris le Fleming, one of the panel members for the Waterhouse Inquiry, had previously worked for the Hereford and Worcestershire Local Authorities.

 

Reg Ward was a ‘surprise choice’ by Secretary of State for the Environment Michael Heseltine to lead the new Docklands body on its inception in 1980 and for nine months was the only member of staff during its “shadow period” of operation. However this period ‘gave Reg the opportunity to walk extensively through Docklands, drawing pictures of the old warehouses and imagining what possible redevelopments could take place’. A story told by ex LDDC staffers was that Reg’s first work for the organisation took place using a bucket for a seat and an old upturned tea chest as a desk.

Tea chests virtually died out many years ago, but I’ll tell you who had lots and lots of tea chests in his houses – Dafydd. I have no idea what was in them, but Dafydd had tea chests everywhere long after they had largely disappeared off the face of the earth.

 

It is alleged that there were no concrete ideas regarding how the Docklands should be developed when Ward was appointed. Ward’s wiki entry tells us that ‘Ward’s genius was to be open to new ideas, and to seize opportunities which came along, rather than to create reports and paperwork. Ward said if he had created some grand plan…”we would still be debating and nothing would have got built. Instead, we have gone for an organic, market-driven approach, responding pragmatically to each situation.”‘

Ward invited Michael von Clemm of Credit Suisse First Boston to Docklands to look for a site for a food factory. When von Clemm suggested that the Canary Wharf site might be suitable for offices to house bank trading floors, Ward ‘leapt upon the idea and helped sell it to Gov’t’.

At the LDDC, Reg Ward was responsible for progressing the ideas of Docklands Light Railway, London City Airport, Canary Wharf and he helped Iain Shearer on the ExCeL Exhibition Centre.

Ward’s ‘forthright style’ did not sit well with his colleagues in central Gov’t, in particular Nicholas Ridley, who replaced Heseltine as the Secretary of State for the Environment in 1986. Ward had a total disregard for Civil Service protocol and rules and Ward is said to have once avoided answering phone calls from the Secretary of State for several days because he knew that the call was to say that one of his road projects would be cancelled.

Ward was eased out of his job shortly after the deal on Canary Wharf was signed. However, he is now viewed as the main driver in Gov’t behind the development of London Docklands. Reg Ward went on to work in Barcelona and Sydney on major regeneration projects before being appointed to head the regeneration of St Kitts in the Caribbean. In his later years, Reg ran his own consultancy company and was a regular contributor to debates on urban regeneration and the future of the Thames Gateway.

Ward’s wife Betty pre-deceased him in early 2010. They had two children.

Ward’s Torygraph obituary in Jan 2011 stated that: ‘Ward put Docklands on the map with a cheeky advertising campaign…and a rumbustious approach to getting things done that brooked little role for Left-wing neighbouring boroughs, or indeed for Whitehall protocol. Within five years Ward and his equally ebullient chairman, Sir Nigel Broackes, had confounded LDDC’s critics by achieving a remarkable transformation of one of the most run-down areas in Britain, turning 8.5 square miles of dereliction into a place where people wanted to live and work. His admirers have even claimed that London would never have won the bid for the 2012 Olympic Games had not Ward battled vigorously for better transport links in the East End.

Tessa Jowell was famously given responsibility for the 2012 Olympics and it involved a serious cock-up with security. The bunch of shysters which are G4S were given the contract, having screwed up so many huge Gov’t contracts on previous occasions and true to form, G4S couldn’t fulfil the contract and therefore the British Army were brought in to do the job.

The 2012 Olympics were kicked off with that over-the-top display of All That Is Good About Britain which featured a tribute to the NHS, in which Peter Pan-themed Angels bounced up and down on giant beds with their young patients. I did notice that the bad news NHS stories which I knew were in the pipeline didn’t see the light of day until that hackneyed rubbish had passed. Who was behind that opening scene? Danny Boyle. Danny Boyle was at the time the most hyped graduate of UCNW (Bangor University) (see previous posts). Danny studied at UCNW in the mid-1970s, when UCNW was completely under the control of Dafydd’s gang, who at the time of the 2012 Olympics had unlawfully detained me – yet again – in Wrexham Maelor Hospital.

‘Ward’s greatest achievement was to persuade hard-nosed City and property investors that Docklands revival was going to work. By 1986, the LDDC had spent around £300m of public money, but had succeeded in attracting £1.4 billion in private investment.

His approach was to seize opportunities whenever and wherever they arose. When the American banker Michael von Clemm visited West India Docks looking for a factory site, he became interested instead in the idea of building offices. Ward jumped on this and the resulting scheme became the Canary Wharf development. After several hiccups a contract was eventually signed with Paul Reichman, of the Canadian property developers Olympia and York, in 1987. “You could say that Docklands is a ‘happening’, a happy coincidence of opportunity and accident,” Ward explained.“There have been no master plans or detailed development frameworks.”

But Ward’s style was controversial. The Greater London Council under Ken Livingstone refused to acknowledge the LDDC’s existence and the affected boroughs were furious at having an unelected body within their midst that had sole authority for planning approval. Within the Isle of Dogs Enterprise Zone the LDDC could do virtually whatever it wanted – including offering generous tax breaks to developers…’

Red Ken would have loved to have chucked a spanner in the works of the LDDC, but he couldn’t blow the whistle on Bob Mellish and his mates sending all those kids in care to a trafficking gang in north Wales, because Ken and his accomplices at the GLC were colluding with Dafydd’s gang as well (see previous posts).

‘Moreover, the LDDC faced growing criticism that local people had not benefited from the new development. Unemployment in the area remained above the national average, and beyond the shiny new office blocks, deprivation and grim housing continued to be the norm. Local residents led rallies in protest at the noise, pollution and lack of job opportunities.’

These were the Common People who’s interests Bob Mellish and his crew only ever had at heart.

‘Ward remained unrepentant, protesting that if there had been some grand plan, “we would still be debating and nothing would have got built. Instead, we have gone for an organic, market-driven approach, responding pragmatically to each situation.” A sense of local identity, he argued, could only emerge once the buildings were up.’

I am a little suspicious of the notion that the Docklands development was ‘organic’ and just sort of grew spontaneously as Reg jotted down a few ideas on the upturned tea chest. We are talking millions and millions of public money here and it is interesting to see what exactly sprung up at Docklands. It was a global centre for banking, which I suspect is rather what Thatcher wanted in London. Furthermore, it is now many years since the development of Docklands. I have heard of no sense of local identity existing down there, in fact doesn’t Docklands boast that it is highly cosmopolitan? One of the most cosmopolitan places in the world? You don’t see many Pearly Kings hanging around Canary Wharf. Or many Nans.

  • Outrage over BBC plans to show Catherine Tate's Nan ...

 

‘Ward stepped down from the job of chief executive in September 1987, shortly after signing the contract for the development of Canary Wharf. Though he was held in great regard by those who worked for him, one commentator observed, “the corns he has stepped on would fill more shoes than even Imelda Marcos possessed”….

While Michael Heseltine was a great admirer of his gung-ho approach (as, apparently, was the Duke of Edinburgh), Nicholas Ridley, who became Environment Secretary in 1986, was less enthusiastic….’

The Duke of Edinburgh is not someone known for his sense of local identity, in fact he is famous for managing to be mixed race, an immigrant and a racist old bastard all at once.

‘In 2004 Ward and his wife Betty celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with a lunchtime party at their home in Stow-on-the-Wold attended by many of the LDDC’s original staff….’

I don’t know who went to the knees-up but it won’t have been the cleaners who scuttle around Docklands in the small hours in return for a pittance. Stow-on-the-Wold is a Pretty Place In The Cotswolds. At one time the Cotswolds contained a lot of poor people who worked on farms.

Rebekah Wade | Profile | Media | The Guardian

The above resident of the Cotswolds grew up in Cheshire while Dafydd’s gang, including Sir Peter Morrison, were busy there. The President of Morrisons Constituency Conservative Party, the Duke of Westminster – a close friend of Carlo – lived on his estate just down the road. This Cotswolds resident later married an actor who starred in East Enders. Some of the East Enders cast support the work of the Mildmay, the HIV/AIDS centre which sprang up in Shoreditch in the mid 1980s. The Mildmay was founded by NHS staff and politicians who were concealing the activities of Dafydd’s gang and remained schtum when the Mildmay functioned as a hospice for the rent boys controlled by Dafydd’s gang when they began dying of AIDS. See post ‘Apocalypse Now’.

This bridegroom struck a deal with Thatch: if she wrote the legislation to break the unions, he’d pioneer the strategy and in return his newspapers would give their complete support to Thatch’s Gov’t. That is one reason why never a word about Dafydd and the gang has been published in the press. See previous posts.

Rebekah’s friend who lives near her in the Cotswolds famously resigned as PM hours after the nation had voted for Brexit because he didn’t want to do ‘all the hard shit’. He subsequently purchased a very expensive ‘shepherd’s hut’ for his back garden in the Cotswolds, in which he wrote a book which has not received much publicity if indeed it has been published yet. Cameron was so taken by his garden shed that he purchased another £25k ‘shepherd’s hut’ for the back garden of his second home in Cornwall.

Here’s a bit more detail regarding the mind-blowing success which was Canary Wharf:

After Michael von Clemm came up with the idea to convert Canary Wharf into a back office, it was further discussions with G Ware Travelstead which led to proposals for a new business district and included the LDDC developing the Docklands Light Railway. The project was sold to the Canadian company Olympia & Yorke and construction began in 1988, master-planned by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill with Yorke Rosenberg Mardall as their UK advisers and subsequently by Koetter Kim. The first buildings were completed in 1991, including 1 Canada Square, which became the UK’s tallest building at the time and a symbol of the regeneration of Docklands.

Canary Wharf Skyline 2, London UK - Oct 2012.jpg

 

By the time that 1 Canada Square had opened, the London commercial property market had collapsed and Olympia and York Canary Wharf Limited filed for bankruptcy in May 1992.

‘£300 million of public money’ was ‘invested’ in the LDDC…

Initially, the City of London saw Canary Wharf as an existential threat. It modified its planning laws to expand the provision of new offices in the City of London, for example, creating offices above railway stations (Blackfriars) and roads (Albans Gate). The resulting oversupply of office space contributed to the failure of the Canary Wharf project.

In Oct 1995, an international consortium that included investors such as Alwaleed, bought control for $1.2 billion. Paul Reichmann was named Chairman and Canary Wharf went public in 1999. The new company was called Canary Wharf Limited and later became Canary Wharf Group.

In 1997, some residents living on the Isle of Dogs launched a lawsuit against Canary Wharf Ltd for private nuisance because the tower interfered with TV signals. The residents lost the case.

Recovery in the property market generally, coupled with continuing demand for large floorplate Grade A office space, slowly improved the level of interest. A critical event in the recovery was the much-delayed start of work on the Jubilee Line Extension, which Miranda’s Gov’t wanted ready for the Millennium Dome celebrations.

Readers may remember that there was chaos at the Millennium Celebrations, because of problems with the Jubilee Line Extension. It didn’t get people to the Dome and New Labour politicians and spin doctors were at each other’s throats. Lilibet really didn’t look as though she was enjoying herself when they all did the countdown to midnight either.

 

In March 2004, Canary Wharf Group plc was taken over by a consortium of investors, backed by its largest shareholder Glick Family Investments and led by Morgan Stanley using a vehicle named Songbird Estates plc.

I can imagine what Nan would say about that lot…

There were media reports yesterday stating that Cameron wants to make a political come-back, possibly as Foreign Secretary. ‘Private Eye’ had a great time with their ‘Lord Snooty and His Pals’ column when Cameron was PM. In 2009, when Cameron was Leader of the Opposition, the Torygraph published an article comparing him to Lord Snooty, a ‘toff’ befriending the poor. However, the Torygraph questioned whether Cameron was the original Lord Snooty, a pleasant boy wanting the best for his friends, or Lord Snooty the Third, a creation of ‘The Beano’ in 2008, a ‘repulsive’ boy who laughs at those less fortunate. Lord Snooty the Third was the grandson of Lord Snooty and had a butler called Parkinson.

I remember him well:

  • The Falklands War
  • Cecil Parkinson did not believe he was father of secretary ...
  • Lord Cecil Parkinson dies after cancer battle his family ...
  • BBC stop the blackmail – it's wrong to bully people into ...

 

I think that it was Yvette Cooper who pertinently commented that Cameron has done quite enough damage already. Sadly Yvette, I suspect that Lord Snooty the Third’s arrival in the House some 17 years ago was a good deal more sinister than that of an entitled twat thinking that he had a right to be PM. When Lord Snooty the Third was beginning his upward climb, I think it was Conservative Central Office who were said to have received a phone call from Buck House telling them that they were about to meet a ‘most remarkable young man’. Then when Cameron became Tory leader, the Daddy of the LDDC, Heseltine, gave an interview to a broadsheet explaining that Call Me Dave would be gweat as PM and that the first time that Heseltine met Camewon, Camewon was unconscious on Heseltine’s floor, suffering from the after-effects of a party thrown by Heseltine’s nauseating daughter, Annabel, a pal of Dave’s.

Heseltine knew about the paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire, he knew what they were doing to my friends and I and he tried to gain as much political capital from it as possible (see previous posts eg. ‘Those Who Are Ready To Serve’ and ‘A Legend Lives’).

Heseltine was behind the multi-million pound fleecing of the taxpayer which was the LDDC, as well as the similar but smaller scale ‘regeneration’ scams eg. the development of Cardiff Bay (see post ‘Corruption Bay Special’). Heseltine personally appointed crooks like Bob Mellish and Reg Wade to the most senior roles on the LDDC. Would anyone, looking at what was going on in Southwark Borough Council, have put Bob Mellish in charge of anything???

Another consideration re Lord Snooty the Third’s rise to the very top of the Tory Party and the associated boosts from the Old Guard: Cameron’s dad Ian was Chairman of White’s Club.

Morrison’s sister Dame Mary was, from 1960 onward, Woman-of-the-Bedchamber to HM Lilibet and Carlo was the Chancellor of UCNW throughout the many years that Dafydd’s gang ran that institution.


God lyric pistol queen save sex

 

Being a courtier is a long-term commitment. Dame Mary was cluttering up Buck House for decades, throughout the many happy years when Morrison was molesting kids in care in north Wales, when Dafydd was illegally imprisoning victims of the paedophile gang in the Denbigh Dungeon and when other victims were found dead.

Carlo and Prince William are members of White’s.

Lord Snooty the Third was elected as the MP for Witney in June 2001. The year after the Waterhouse Report was published, the month after I qualified as a teacher and just as Dafydd’s gang began yet another all-out attack on me in their desperation to ensure that anything that I said would never be taken seriously. I have a lot more evidence that I haven’t yet put up on this blog Snooty III and some of it leads to you and your network.

Snooty III’s mother was a magistrate in Oxford. There was a long-standing abuse ring in Oxford and some of Dafydd’s associates – including Profs Mark Williams, from Bangor University and Tom Burns, from St George’s Hospital Medical School – rocked up with Chairs at Oxford in the wake of me adding to Alison Taylor’s whistleblowing. See previous posts for the names of the many people who colluded with Dafydd’s gang who ended up with jobs at Oxford.

Lord Snooty the Third became Tory Party Leader in Dec 2005. Just a few months after I’d been awarded my PhD and when all-out war was declared upon my PhD supervisor and the VC of Bangor University. Miranda was involved, as was Gordon Brown – and so was Snooty III.

It was Snooty III who on 4 Sept 2012 appointed David Jones MP as Secretary of State for Wales, just as the crucial decisions regarding the Macur Review of the Waterhouse Inquiry were being taken by Gov’t. David Jones is a solicitor from north Wales who spent years sharing a practice with the crooked solicitor Elwyn Jones, Elwyn Jones being responsible for wrecking the life of patient F, another victim of Dafydd’s gang who dared tell people that he knew that kids in care in north Wales were being abused (see eg. post ‘How Much Greater Is A Man Than A Sheep?’). Before that, David Jones shared a practice with Ieuan Wyn Jones, another bent solicitor from north Wales, who also shafted Dafydd’s victims, as did Ieuan’s wife, Eirian Llwyd and and even Ieuan’s father (see previous posts). David Jones is a big pal of Tory MP Antoinette Sandbach, who’s family are landowners from north Wales and concealed the wrongdoing of Dafydd and the gang (see previous posts). For the full sordid details of David Jones, see post ‘The Right Honourable David Jones MP’.

As for Snooty being a ‘most remarkable young man’ – Que?? Cameron was Norman Lamont’s adviser in the period leading up to Black Wednesday, 16 Sept 1992.

You big twat Snooty, you really should not have built your career on the back of concealing Dafydd’s gang. Just retreat into your shepherd’s hut and stay there, along with your dipstick of a wife, who is related to a few more who concealed the wrongdoing of Dafydd et al in previous generations (see previous posts).

It was Snooty who appointed Theresa as Home Secretary; Theresa who served as a Merton Borough Councillor, 1986-94, on the patch of the paedophile gang that was facilitated by St George’s Hospital Medical School/Springfield Hospital/Wandsworth Social Services. Theresa then appointed Lady Justice Julia Macur to conduct the Review of Waterhouse. Julia produced yet another heavily redacted cover-up of a Report.

 

I know someone from Bethesda who met Snooty III when he was still Leader of the Opposition. It was a teenager who used to live in the same village as me. She was the daughter of the first wife of patient F who had his life destroyed by Dafydd’s gang. Radio 1 held a phone-in competition and the prize was a trip to London to meet Lord Snooty the Third. The teenager won the competition and the BBC sent a posh car up to Bethesda to collect her. She hadn’t told her mum anything about any of it and cheerily got into the BBC car and went off to London where she was filmed talking to Lord Snooty the Third about climate change. Hilarious, WW III had broken out in Bethesda, because the BBC didn’t realise that the prize winner was under 16 and no-one even knew that she was in London meeting Snooty until everyone saw the media reports…

I thought that it was fantastic, but Brown said that he imagined that the BBC had kittens when they realised what they had done.

 

 

Perhaps the most important People’s Champ in sahf London with regard to Dafydd’s gang hitting the big time was John Vincent Tilley. Tilley was born and raised in Derby. There was a long-standing trafficking ring in Derby with links to Dafydd’s gang. Staff were exchanged between the two gangs and I suspect that the reason why the Top Doctors refused to provide treatment for the alcoholism of Kevin Lloyd – the actor from ‘the Bill’ – which resulted in his death, was because of his knowledge of organised abuse in Derbyshire, as well as that of linked gangs. Kevin’s brother Terry was a ITN journo who also died in unfortunate circumstances in 2003. See post ‘That’s Entertainment’. Kevin and Terry’s father was a police officer from North Wales who relocated to Derbyshire. He was killed in an unfortunate accident when his sons were young. Kevin died as the result of being abandoned and left to stew by the Top Doctors in May 1998. Midway through the Waterhouse Inquiry.

John Jillings, who led the team which carried out the Jillings Investigation and wrote the Jillings Report, was the retired Director of Social Services for Derbyshire. Jillings stated that dreadful abuse of children in north Wales had gone on for decades, probably as far back as the 1940s, but refused to comment on whether a paedophile ring with links to other areas of the UK was at work.
John Tilley read history at Trinity Hall, Cambridge. He then became a journalist at the ‘Newcastle Journal’. There was a trafficking gang in the North East with links to Dafydd, which sent the gang in north Wales staff and children. Tilley moved to London as industrial and later diplomatic, correspondent of ‘The Scotsman’.
In 1971, Tilley was elected to Wandsworth Council, where he became Council Leader. Not only were Wansdworth Social Services facilitating a trafficking gang, but Donald Naismith, the Director of Education for Wandsworth, was an active paedophile who was known to be abusing kids in care. See previous posts.
John Tilley was chosen by the Labour Party as their candidate in the by-election in Lambeth Central in 1978, which was caused by the death of the Labour MP Marcus Lipton. Jim Callaghan was Leader (and PM) by then, but Tilley had previously stood for election as a Labour candidate when Harold Wilson was Leader. There was a terrible problem with the abuse of children in Lambeth children’s homes and furthermore Lambeth was yet another Borough trading with Dafydd’s gang. Numerous children from Lambeth were sent to north Wales children’s homes. Tessa Jowell worked as a children’s social worker for Lambeth – Tessa also worked as a psychiatric social worker at the Maudsley and was Deputy Director of MIND when both the Maudsley and MIND were run by Dafydd’s mates who colluded with him – and Paul Boateng’s wife Janet was a Lambeth social worker. Janet was also a Lambeth Councillor and Chaired the Social Services Committee when Tyra Henry died in the Care of Lambeth in 1984. Esther Rantzen’s sister Priscilla Taylor worked as a social worker for Lambeth and Esther subsequently appointed Priscilla’s boss Valerie Howarth as CEO of ChildLine. Paul Boateng was a solicitor working for Birnberg & Co when that firm acted for Mary Wynch in her litigation against Dafydd and the gang. See previous posts for further details…
The Labour Party would have needed a very safe pair of hands to take over from Marcus Lipton, particularly as by 1978 and at the time under the leadership of Lesbian Feminist Black Woman Linda Bellos (see previous posts), Lambeth Borough Council were a laughing stock and the Labour Party feared that it would have a real battle on its hands at the by-election. They selected the best. John Tilley won and the abuse of children in the care of Lambeth continued apace on an even greater scale, both in Lambeth and in north Wales and John Tilley didn’t utter a word.
John Tilley served on Labour’s Opposition front bench, but resigned in 1982 over Michael Foot’s support for the Falklands War. As MP for the Brixton area, Tilley worked with Lord Scarman after the 1981 Brixton Riots ‘for a better understanding of social problems’.
 It was John Tilley who proposed a bill to amend the Sexual Offences (Amendment) Act 1976 to make rape in marriage illegal in 1983, Tilley being someone who Spoke Out and took a firm line on sexual violence.
John Tilley was a founding member of the Socialist Campaign Group in 1982, which was packed with Labour Party Radicals who said not a word about Dafydd and the associated gangs but who undoubtedly knew about them.
By 1982, Mary Wynch was on her way to the Master of the Rolls regarding the activities of Dafydd and the gang and Dafydd et al were sending up distress flares.
Tilley’s constituency seat was abolished for the 1983 General Election and he was selected to fight Southwark and Bermondsey instead. The Liberal Simon Hughes had won the seat in the by-election earlier that year by keeping quiet about Dafydd’s gang, about Bob Mellish and his appalling corruption and condoning the homophobic abuse directed at Peter Tatchell, although Hughes was having gay relationships himself. Hughes held the seat until 2010. See post ‘The Battle For The Labour Party’s Soul’. Tilley never returned to Parliament. Not that Tilley was put out of action.
Tilley subsequently worked as Chief Economic Adviser to the London Borough of Hackney, which was one of the Boroughs busy with Dafydd’s people trafficking arrangement. John Tilley spent 11 years as Parliamentary Secretary to the Co-operative Union. From 2000 to 2002, he headed the Parliamentary office of the Co-operative Group.
Tilley’s first marriage ended in divorce, after a daughter, Cleo. He married again in 1982 to Kathryn Riley, a Brixton teacher and Labour activist, who was later appointed a Professor at the Institute of Education, University of London, where she retains that post. They had a daughter, Jo. John Tilley died of cancer in 2005.
Fattersley wrote an obituary for John Tilley in ‘The Guardian’. Fattersley told us that:
‘For two years in the early 1980s, John Tilley and I worked together as members of the Labour opposition’s Home Office shadow team…’
Well there’s an admission from Fattersley. Fattersley was of course the MP for Sparkbrook in Birmingham, 1964-97 and knew that kids in care in the West Midlands were being abused and placed in children’s homes in north Wales where they were abused. Fattersley also knew about the corrupt-as-fuck West Midlands Serious Crime Squad – who fitted up Ali Khan from Caernarfon as well as the Birmingham Six and many others – but poor old Fattersley was keen that Labour should not be seen as anti-police, so he ignored all of this. See previous posts.
After all, from 1983 to 1992, Fattersley and the Windbag were the ‘dream ticket’, while one half of the dream ticket was bestest mates with the man who ensured that Dafydd’s empire in south Landon grew bigger and bigger.
Gotcha
The Windbag has always blamed Labour’s failure to win power throughout the 1980s on the activities of the ‘loony left’, people like Linda Bellos and Ted Knight, the man who succeeded her as Leader of Lambeth Borough Council. They didn’t help, but just look at what was going on among Labour’s old guard: a water-tight arrangement that allowed Dafydd to run a trafficking gang which expanded into Europe.
‘Tilley…dealt with every difficulty with the calm certainty that characterised a man of principle…’
Well that’s one euphemism for a man who colluded with a murderous people trafficking gang.
‘The incident I remember best occurred during the committee stage of the nationality bill. During one, not very important, impromptu speech, I referred to “British subjects”. He asked for a word outside. “For heaven’s sake,” he said, “not British subjects. British citizens. That is what we are arguing for. The rights of citizenship.’
Targeted by Dafydd et al? No rights at all I’m afraid, we had no citizenship rights because the Windbag wanted to be PM and after Mary Wynch began her legal action, the whole of the political class got together and stuck together.
‘It was during that time that Tilley struck up a fruitful – but in some ways unlikely – partnership with Lord Scarman (obituary, December 10 2004), author of the inquiry into the 1981 Brixton riots. Their mutual admiration was the result of the passion they shared for creating a genuinely multiracial society.’
No Fattersley, Mary Wynch was putting the wind up the whole rotten corpse, including the corrupt judiciary who for years colluded with Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring. You all began making friends with each other, despite the many civil wars being conducted and poor old Di was the Royal Family’s idea of a bit of PR because they too were involved in this.
  • PRINCESS DIANA
  • Prince Harry condemns paparazzi who photographed Diana as ...
Di crashed on 31 Aug 1997. Anyone remember what Ronnie Waterhouse was going in Aug 1997? He and numerous lawyers at the Waterhouse Inquiry were calling the victims of a murderous criminal gang a bunch of liars. In Aug 1997, Dafydd, Tony Francis et al were still beavering away with a great many others on The Final Solution re me, ie. planting evidence and carefully documenting things that had never happen in preparation for a case conference – to be held in complete secret of course – that would conclude that I was so phenomenally dangerous that I should be sent to Broadmoor to live with Mr Savile.
‘In the days immediately following the disturbances, Tilley took Scarman round Brixton and helped him to understand what life was really like for the people living there. As its author gladly confirmed, the report was undoubtedly better for John’s illustrations of the area’s social conditions…’
Tilley kept those witnesses to Dafydd and the gang out of the way during that Tour of North Korea.
‘He…entered the Commons as an acknowledged member of London’s municipal left; he had strong reservations about some aspects of the Callaghan government’s policies, but he never doubted the importance of Labour gaining – and retaining – power to achieve the objectives which he regarded as its purpose…’
Yes, they were really bloody desperate. Mary didn’t begin her legal action until after 1979, but her battle with Dafydd and the gang was well underway by the time that John Tilley entered the Commons; she wasn’t unlawfully imprisoned until 1978 because she went on the run and it took them a while to find her…
Labour did gain power – eventually, once the Windbag and all traces of him had been erased – and Miranda and then Gordon in his wake made efforts as heroic as any of those before them to conceal the mountain of crap relating to Dafydd and the gang.
‘… the effects of the Tatchell byelection – one of the dirtiest campaigns in modern political history – were too much to overcome. In the 1983 general election, Tilley lost and parliament was denied a man who would have made a continued contribution to the democratic life of multiracial Britain.’
Fattersley has forgotten to mention that the dirt thrown at Tatchell in the by-election was thrown by other members of the Labour Party, deeply corrupt members, who were sending disadvantaged kids to north Wales where they were sexually assaulted at gunpoint. There was nothing democratic about John Tilley.
Tony Belton added to Fattersley’s obituary: ‘John Tilley and his first wife, Tracey, appeared on the south London political scene in 1966 at a St Mary Park ward meeting in Battersea – and found themselves in the middle of a maelstrom. They lived at 25 Bullen Street, part of a ramshackle Victorian terrace, which many, including leading municipal politicians, considered to be a slum. The future of the Home Road area became one of several issues John was to get involved with, the other major controversies being about Battersea’s halfway houses: the Dickensian Durham Buildings and Victoria Dwellings.
John was part of the St Mary Park team organising marches, press campaigns and lobbying. Then, in 1968, he threw himself into the ward local election campaign. Despite a Tory landslide in Wandsworth and across the country, this marginal ward became one of only four that Labour won that day.
The St Mary Park team stuck together and, within a dozen years, seven of them were members of the radical Wandsworth council; two, including John, were to become council leaders, and others became committee chairmen. 
So they were responsible for the growth of the trafficking ring in Wandsworth, which thanks to the presence of Professor Oliver Brooke who worked down the road at St George’s Hospital, in the 1980s was a key part of Dafydd’s pan-European paedophile ring.
John Tilley was one of the main people behind Dafydd’s gang’s London branch and Tilley had been involved from the very beginning. In 1968 when Tilley ‘threw himself’ into local politics, John Allen took out a 21 yr lease on the property which would become the Bryn Alyn Community and would house children from 42 different local authorities.
Only two months ago, John confessed to me that the most fulfilling part of his political life had been that period from 1966-78…’
Business boomed! Furthermore, ‘the most fulfilling part’ of Tilley’s political life pretty much reflects the rise and fall of Harold Wilson. I bet that Tilley could have told us why Wilson made that shock resignation as PM in 1976…
‘As the organisational genius behind the Wandsworth team…’
Shouldn’t that read ‘behind the criminal gang’?
‘…he was not always the most immediately approachable of men, perhaps because beneath the surface there was a rather shy working-class boy.’
Not really an absolute bastard, John Tilley was just so shy and working-class that he simply gave the impression of being one…
‘He did, however, have a wicked sense of humour…’
I pissed myself laughing when Dafydd’s gang murdered my housemate, tried to murder Brown and then killed my friend’s baby! Then there were all those times that they perjured themselves, had me arrested and tried to ensure that I ended up in prison! As for all those jobs from which they had me sacked, it was a laugh a minute…
His formal, as opposed to social, contacts with Wandsworth and Battersea finished in 1978 but in this last year a project he has been much involved in was a history project about Battersea, where his interest in working-class movements came very much to the fore.’
The Man Of The People remained mates with them all at Wandsworth and Battersea long after he left political life then. Which is hardly surprising, they’d have all ended up in prison if they hadn’t have all stuck together and formed a tight bond with politicians from all other parties with regard to concealing exactly the same wrongdoing. Being a student of working-class movements, John Tilley would have noticed that it is a very long time since Wandsworth and Battersea were populated by working-class people. Those areas are choc full of middle-class professionals who have out-priced everyone else; Wandsworth was and is a popular residential location for the staff of St George’s Hospital. Michael Mansfield QC, the Radical Lawyer who knew about Dafydd’s gang but kept quiet even when I wrote to him about them in 1993 (see previous posts), lived in Wandsworth.
John Tilley pegged out the month that Cameron became Leader of the Tory Party!
So admired for his Principles was John Tilley that Tam Dalyell also wrote an obituary, which appeared in the Indie:
‘John Vincent Tilley, journalist and politician: born Derby 13 June 1941; member, Wandsworth Borough Council 1971-78; MP (Labour) for Lambeth Central 1978-83; chief economic adviser, London Borough of Hackney 1983-88; Parliamentary Secretary to the Co-operative Union 1998-99; Head of the Parliamentary Office, Co- operative Group 2000-02; twice married (two daughters); died London 18 December 2005.
..there is little to match a shared adversity to the prevailing view within a political party in bringing together MPs who might not otherwise be close colleagues. Apart from canvassing with John Tilley in the crucial by-election in Lambeth in 1978, in which he triumphed in the most difficult circumstances, when the government majority had dwindled to minus one, I had scarcely talked to him since he had been industrial correspondent of The Scotsman newspaper in the early 1970s. That changed in April 1982 as we both stridently opposed the Falklands War. Thus we incurred the displeasure of the party leader Michael Foot and the wrath of some senior members of the Parliamentary Labour Party who had committed themselves to supporting Margaret Thatcher’s military reaction to the Argentine occupation of the Falklands.
 
Tilley’s stance was particularly admirable. After only four years in the Commons he was already on the front bench and was making his mark in the strong Home Affairs Opposition team, powerfully led by Roy Hattersley. But for Tilley, principle took place over parliamentary advancement. Moreover, unlike a number of opponents on the left, he had really thought through the issues and had mastered the detail, both military and diplomatic.
In fact, had Tilley survived the boundary redistribution in which his constituency, Lambeth Central, was abolished in 1983, I believe he would have become one of the major figures of the Labour Party. This was also the opinion of Hattersley, who came from a very different wing of the party than Tilley’s London-left background.
It didn’t matter that Tilley and Fattersley came from ‘different wings’ of the party. Tilley was the main organiser of the London arm of a massive trafficking ring, with which Fattersley and the rest of them at the top of the Labour Party were colluding.
‘Tilley was born in Derby and had happy memories of his boyhood. He was taken to football matches by his father, who worked in engineering both for Rolls-Royce and for the railway workshops, when Derby County was one of the great forces in English club football. The Baseball Ground in Derby was an unusually compact stadium where the physical circumstances engendered tremendous togetherness. Tilley told me that his passionate belief in community and collective action was conceived, perhaps, in a curious way, at those early football matches.
From grammar school he won a scholarship to Trinity Hall, Cambridge, where he read History. His first job in 1968 was with a Newcastle journal and in 1970 he became industrial correspondent, based in London, of The Scotsman. It is often the case that local MPs develop very close relations with correspondents covering their own area, and thus it was for me and Tilley – my area contained the huge British Motor Corporation truck and tractor division at Bathgate which was then the largest concentration of machine tools under one roof in Europe.
Both Members of Parliament and members of the Joint Shop Stewards Committee received a very fair hearing from Tilley. However, as James Naughtie, his former colleague on the Scotsman and now presenter of the BBC Radio 4 Today programme…’
 
Now there’s a pearl of information – Tilley had a mate on Radio 4’s main daily news programme, a programme with a strong political angle…
…says: “It was difficult for John, we thought, to combine both the labour and industrial correspondent position of The Scotsman in London with that of the leadership of the Wandsworth Council.” Tilley had been elected as a councillor for Battersea in 1968, winning the ward against the trend in that year’s Tory landslide. He was made council leader by 1971.
So while Tilley was in south London and organising politically there he landed a job as a journo in Newcastle, on the patch of the gang which fed Dafydd’s gang both staff and children. Then Tilley worked on Scotland’s principal broadsheet while he was busy in Wandsworth with Dafydd’s London paedophile gang. Throughout it all, John Tilley was making friends with influential people in the London-based media.
Matt Arnold and Peter Howarth, two friends and colleagues who worked at Axwell Park Approved School in Gateshead, relocated to Bryn Estyn in 1973. Howarth was jailed for the sexual abuse of kids in care in north Wales in July 1994. Matt Arnold died of an ‘unspecified blood disease’ on 9 June 1994. Howarth’s trial began on 13 June 1994.
Arnold became Head of Bryn Estyn in May 1973, after the previous Head Peter Burton, along with his wife and seven-year-old son, were killed in a road traffic accident near Crewe, Cheshire in March 1973. The Deputy headmaster of Bryn Estyn was also killed in the accident. Peter Burton had taken over as Head of Bryn Estyn after the previous Head, David Ursell, was suspended in 1972 following a number of complaints regarding the way that he instilled discipline at Bryn Estyn Approved School. The inquiry into David Ursell began on 15 March 1971. Ursell himself had taken over as Head in 1967, after the previous Head, Harold Bennett, retired after 26 years.
So the action at Bryn Estyn began in earnest when John Tilley became Leader of Wandsworth Council.
“John had an understanding of the kind of development which was going on in the trade union and industrial world,” Naughtie says. In journalistic terms, we thought that he had accurate and good stories and he was certainly rigorous. He understood as a practitioner how politics actually worked. He also had the capacity to stand back and see, on occasion, what was happening as absurd.
In 1974, Tilley was chosen to stand in the hopeless seat of Kensington & Chelsea. He was then “rewarded”, if that is the right word, by being handed what many thought was the poisoned chalice of an extremely difficult by-election in central Lambeth in 1978. However, to the delight and relief of the Labour Party, he got 15,101 votes, to the 9,125 for Jeremy Hanley, later chairman of the Conservative Party, with the Liberal picking up 2,339, the National Front 830, and Corin Redgrave for the Workers Party 152.’
The People Champ and Trafficker won the day. The Redgrave Revolutionaries knew something about organised abuse as did Jeremy Hanley, who also knew all about Peter Morrison and openly took the piss out of Morrison’s gay ways and penchant for young boys (see previous posts)…
‘No MP could have had a warmer baptism of fire in his constituency. In 1981 came the Brixton riots. Tilley had the great good sense to form a friendship with the distinguished High Court judge Lord Scarman, who was appointed to conduct an inquiry into the riots…’
A friendship with a High Court judge? In particular Lord Scarman, a towering figure. Yes, Dafydd’s gang excelled at expressing ‘great good sense’ in that way. I find Lord Scarman’s friendship with a mate of Dafydd’s so worrying that I’ll be blogging more about Scarman soon. The Scarman who was loved by liberal society and was the subject of many a column in ‘The Guardian’ re his Wisdom And Humanity and ability to Heal Rifts In Society.
‘Tilley’s parliamentary interests mostly centred on London and I will never forget his informed speech of 9 February 1979, made in an adjournment debate initiated by his friend Albert Stallard (now Lord Stallard). He said “South-east London, including the Borough of Lambeth . . . is known to have a high proportion of men and women who are in desperate need of help with the problem of alcoholism. Anyone who knows the area must be aware of the large number of people who live, or barely exist, on those streets, usually with inadequate clothing and food and often sleeping rough in all weathers.”
Most of the homeless alcoholics at that time were former psych patients and of them, a great many were former kids in care. Affluent people of course do end up with drink problems, but they usually have enough of a cushion not to end up on the streets. That is the treat that Empowered Service Users have in store for them. Furthermore Dafydd was the alcohol and drug abuse ‘expert’ in north Wales for decades and indeed he still is, at the age of nearly 90. Dafydd’s charidee CAIS has the contract to provide ‘substance abuse and alcohol services’ across the whole of north Wales and he’s branched out across the rest of Wales as well.
Dafydd learnt his techniques for the treatment of alcoholics at the knee of the Master, namely David Davies at the Maudsley. David Davies was the Dean of the Institute of Psychiatry/Maudsley, 1950-66 and had a reputation for admitting staff and students to the Institute of Psychiatry/Maudsley on the basis of very unsound rationale. Davies was Dean when Dafydd was admitted to and ‘trained’ at the Maudsley.
In 1962 Davies’s ‘international reputation in this field [alcoholism] was borne overnight’ when Davies published a short paper on seven alcohol addicts who all allegedly returned to normal drinking. This was a ‘revolutionary claim’ because until then it had been believed that ‘once an alcoholic always an alcoholic’. There was a snag though. Not only did subsequent research suggest that some of Davies’ s findings ‘were faulty’, but not all of his sample were alcohol dependent. So Davies drew erroneous conclusions from a sample of seven some of whom didn’t fit the sampling criteria – thus was his international reputation established overnight.

On the basis of his international reputation, Davies then set up the Alcohol Education Centre – which was, for reasons unexplained, ‘short lived’ – and became the President of the Society for the Study of Addiction as well as a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Addiction.

For more info on the grandiose idiot which was David Davies, as well as his colleagues, see post ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy…’

Dafydd set up CAIS in 1977 and at the time stated that CAIS wasn’t about promoting abstinence, it was about normal drinking. I just presumed that was Dafydd’s excuse to carry on boozing – he was widely reputed to be an alcoholic – but obviously Dafydd was taking his cue from the centre of excellence and those with international reputations.

Tilley was one of the most eloquent of MPs in urging the government to tackle the problem of down-and-outs and also one of the most prescient in asking Parliament to pay serious attention to the drugs problem, then in its infancy…
Dafydd set up CAIS, a charidee for ‘substance users’ as well as alcoholics, the year before his mate Tilley bagged a seat in the Commons and two years before Tilley began imploring Parliament to ‘do something’ about the ‘down and outs’ and ‘addicts’. The something which Tilley will have wanted done will have involved giving Dafydd a great deal of Gov’t money.
In north Wales, once Dafydd was given total responsibility for substance abuse services, the drug dealers’ business boomed and the drugs problem in north Wales exploded. There was a very clear correlation. But then thanks to Bing Spear, the corrupt mandarin in the Home Office’s Drugs Branch, the drug problem got well out of hand in London and across the rest of the UK as well (see post ‘Little Things Hitting Each Other’). Further assistance in Wales was provided by Carwen Howell, one of the Welsh Office’s most senior civil servants with responsibility for pharmaceuticals. Carwen’s mate, a Top Doctor who also held high office in the Welsh Office, was a leading light in Soroptimist International, as was Lucille Hughes.
Previous posts eg. ‘Little Things Hitting Each Other’, ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’ and ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy…’ detail how swathes of Top Doctors working in the area of ‘substance abuse’ did and still do little more than sell drugs to their patients and not always while taking care of their health, no matter how much they claim that attention is paid to this. Most Top Docs are absolutely not interested in treating addicts, they really do not like them, so addicts tend to be left to the mercy of the unscrupulous and crazy, such as Dafydd.
The business model in the children’s homes in north Wales was to give the kids drugs when they were very young and very silly eg. early teens, get them addicted and then get them to pay for their habit by entering the sex industry. The psy professions knew that this was happening and numerous other people who have observed that many prostitutes are only working in dangerous conditions because they are addicts also know how the sex workers became addicted, but that bit goes unmentioned.
‘Apart from supporting Roy Hattersley, who became something of a mentor as well as a great friend to his junior colleague on the front bench in the diverse but critically important Home Office legislation of the time…’
 
The Home Office was riddled with corruption and successive Home Secretaries colluded with Dafydd and the gang…
‘Tilley raised a host of pertinent issues. They included British nationality, school meals, asbestos dangers, inner London colleges, training opportunity schemes, fuel costs assistance and the Police Complaints Board. He was a really useful member of the House of Commons and it was Parliament’s loss that he ceased to be an MP in 1983.
From 1983 until 1988 he eked out a living in the interesting position of economic adviser to the London Borough of Hackney and between 1989 and 1999 he was Parliamentary Secretary to the Co-operative Union, ending up as head of the Parliamentary Office of the Co-operative Group. Part of his legacy is a really excellent book, Churchill’s Favourite Socialist: a life of A.V. Alexander (1995), about the wartime First Lord of the Admiralty who was one of the patron saints of the co-operative movement.’
 
A.V. Alexander aka Viscount Alexander was one of the Ancients who knew about organised abuse in a previous era, the abuse which involved People in Such High Places that when Dafydd came along in later years he was able to build his power base concealing it all, because so many of those involved were Elder Statesmen or Nobles and Royals who were still convincing the world that they were Different From Us (see post ‘What’s Left? The Politics Of Social Justice’). It was A.V. Alexander who gave Ralph Miliband the name of the Vice-Admiral at the Admiralty who would fix up Ralph’s entry into the Royal Navy in 1943. Ralph’s entry into the services wasn’t straightforward because Ralph was a Polish national, so Ralph asked Harold Laski at the LSE for help and Ralph subsequently received a letter from Viscount Alexander, then the First Lord of the Admiralty.
Just two ordinary boys who went to a comprehensive school and loved their Uncle Harry!

John Tilley’s wife Kathryn Ryan is a Professor at the Institute of Education, which is now part of UCL. Ryan has also served as ‘an elected member of the Inner London Education Authority (the ILEA) and been a local authority Chief Officer’. She ‘headed up the World Bank’s Effective Schools and Teachers Group in Washington for two years’ and ‘carried out projects for UNICEF and the OECD’.
ILEA colluded with the abuse of children and many members of ILEA knew about Dafydd and associated gangs (see previous posts).  ‘Private Eye’ used to really take the piss out of ILEA – along with Gerald Kaufperson – and when the Eye had that feature ‘Clerihew Corner’ in the 1980s, someone wrote in with:
‘Frances Morrell
Has done very well
To become head of the ILEA
Without being black or working class or gay’

 

The Tories of ‘Private Eye’ would have known – if only because at one point the Eye employed Ronnie Waterhouse as a libel reader – that Frances Morrell could indeed have become Head of ILEA  without being black or working class or gay, but she wouldn’t have if she’d blown the whistle on Dafydd’s gang.

 

My favourite Clerihew, as any fule kno, was the classic ‘Sara Keays/Was Hard To Please/When She’d Been Laid/By The Minister For Trade’.

 

One of John Tilley’s neighbouring Lambeth MPs was Stuart Holland, Labour MP for Vauxhall, 1979-89. Holland succeeded George Strauss, who’s excesses were discussed in my post ‘The Battle For The Labour Party’s Soul’. Stuart Holland studied and taught history and political theory at Oxford University, then became an adviser to Harold Wilson on European affairs and gained the consent of Charles de Gaulle for a second British application to join the European Community. Holland resigned from 10 Downing Street when Wilson did not follow this through, including the proposal for a European Technology Community and for mutual currency support and then gained an economics PhD at Oxford. He subsequently drafted what in the early 1970s became the economic programme of the British Labour Party when researching and teaching at Sussex University. 

Holland’s case for state holding companies in energy and industry led to the creation of the British National Oil Corporation and a National Enterprise Board. His proposals for regional development agencies led to the creation of the Scottish, Welsh and Northern Ireland Development Agencies and the Greater London Enterprise Board (now London Enterprise).

Holland was the Windbag’s Shadow Minister for Development Cooperation, 1983-87; drafted the 1985 Global Challenge report for the Socialist International; and led the first Labour Party delegation to China since Attlee in 1952. Holland then served as Shadow Financial Secretary to the Treasury before leaving Westminster to help Jacques Delors shape EU policies for economic and social cohesion.

Well they’ve worked a treat haven’t they.

Holland’s proposals to Delors for US New Deal style bonds to offset the deflationary Maastricht debt and deficit conditions resurfaced during the Eurozone crisis. His case to Delors on the case for a New Bretton Woods Conference was endorsed by Bill Clinton at his first G7 in Naples but not followed through by European Governments.

Holland’s more recent case that the G20 should constitute the governing body of a World Development Organization also has attracted high level interest from the Permanent Representatives to the UN of China, Japan, India, South Africa, Brazil and Mexico.

Holland earlier advice to Andreas Papandreou, backed by Francois Mitterand, prompted the first revision of the Rome Treaty, with commitments to both an internal market and to economic and social cohesion in the 1986 Single European Act.

Holland’s later advice to Portuguese PM Antonio Guterres included a cohesion and convergence remit for the European Investment Bank to invest in health, education, urban regeneration and new technology without this counting on national debt. In 1997 the European Council endorsed this as did employer and trades union representatives on the Economic and Social Committee of the EU in 2012.

In 2010, Stuart Holland co-authored A Modest Proposal with Yanis Varoufakis.

Holland resigned his Vauxhall seat in 1989 in order to take up a post at the European University Institute, Florence. He has held teaching and research posts at the universities of Oxford, Sussex, the European University Institute, the universities of Roskilde and Coimbra and has published widely on economic theory and policy, international trade, economic integration, regional theory and policy, social policies, development economics and global governance. Holland currently is a Visiting Professor at the Faculty of Economics of the University of Coimbra and a Senior Scholar of the Institute of Social and European Studies, Köszeg, Hungary.

I presume that the many people who have been on the receiving end of Stuart Holland’s advice had no idea that for ten years between 1979 and 1989, a pan-European trafficking ring which targeted disadvantaged kids and young people in his constituency operated under his nose. Holland will have known about it, because there were constant complaints about the abuse and deaths of kids in care in Lambeth.

Here’s Stuart, looking all important:

Modest Proposal | Yanis Varoufakis

 

 

Now for John Tilley’s predecessor as Labour MP for Lambeth Central, Marcus Lipton, who held the seat when the en masse abuse in Lambeth and the trade in people with Dafydd’s gang began. Marcus Lipton was the son of Benjamin and Mary Lipton of Sunderland and was educated at Hudson Road Council School and Bede Grammar School in the town. Miranda’s mate Ernest Armstrong who was Labour MP for North West Durham, 1964-87, concealed the gang in the North East with links to Dafydd as long ago as the 1960s, when Ernest was a member of Sunderland Borough Council, by using his friendship with Tony Crosland (see post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part III’).

Lipton won a scholarship to Merton College, Oxford. He graduated in history, then studied law and was called to the Bar at Gray’s Inn. So he knew Dafydd’s mate and umbrella Sir William Mars-Jones, a leading figure in Gray’s Inn (see previous posts). Lipton first entered politics when he contested the London County Council elections as Liberal Party candidate for the Stepney division of Mile End. In 1934 he was elected to Stepney Borough Council and then served as an alderman of Lambeth Metropolitan Borough Council, 1937-59.

Shortly before the outbreak of WWII, Lipton enlisted in the TA of the Royal Army Pay Corps. He was commissioned as an officer in the Army Educational Corps.

Lipton was elected as the MP for Brixton in 1945 and retained the seat until it was abolished at the Feb 1974 General Election. He was subsequently elected as MP for the successor seat of Lambeth Central, remaining in the Commons until his death.

Lipton used parliamentary privilege to question PM Anthony Eden about the alleged Third Man, Kim Philby. Philby used the press and the law to force Lipton to withdraw his comments, although Philby was subsequently unmasked as a Soviet spy.

So Lipton had a bit of inside knowledge that he had probably been sitting on for a long time; the most likely reason for that is that Lipton had links with the security services.

MI5: I have told you before, you really do need to amend your recruitment criteria to exclude friends of Dafydd’s.

 

In his last years, Lipton was often critical of the form that the pop and rock music industries had developed by the 1970s. On 2 June 1975, he attacked the “mass hysteria deliberately created by the promoters of pop concerts” following scenes at Bay City Rollers shows. Someone should have told him that the Rollers’ manager Tam Paton was a gangster who used and procured rent boys in Scotland (see post ‘Remember Girls, Never Get Into A Car With A Stranger!’), Lipton would have calmed down then. Later, in response to the Sex Pistols’ insults aimed at the Royal Family, Lipton argued that “if pop music is going to be used to destroy our established institutions, then it must be destroyed first”.

A youth centre in Lambeth is named after Lipton, who looked on as so many lives of youths in Lambeth were ruined. A further service to the UK was provided when in the 1950s, Marcus Lipton gave a tour of Parliament to a 13-year-old constituent, John Major, sparking a political ambition that led Major to becoming Conservative Prime Minister, serving as a Councillor in Lambeth on the way. The year before Major lost the May 1997 General Election to Miranda, Major’s Secretary of State for Wales William Hague orchestrated the huge cover-up which was the Waterhouse Inquiry.

 

Since leaving my comments after a recent post – which followed my conversation with a man who was a patient in the Gwynfa Unit in Colwyn Bay for children and adolescents, who told me that he had been physically assaulted by Angels in that Unit, but like the rest of us he barely knew that the Waterhouse Inquiry was taking place, let alone gave evidence – I have received an e mail from the person who is referred to as ‘P’ in the Waterhouse Report.

P was raped by one of the staff at the Gwynfa Unit. She wrote: ‘I didn’t know anything about the Waterhouse Report at the time. I had been visited by the police but at the time didn’t feel strong enough to go to court. I went to court in 1996/7. It was after my abuser was convicted that I was asked to attend the Waterhouse Inquiry. I think they only asked me 3 questions so it felt like a tick box exercise more than anything else.’
P has supplied me with some details about her case that are not in the public domain that simply add to the horror of it all, but she hasn’t given me permission to supply further information here, only that she had to give evidence at three different trials, as the Angel who raped her used various ploys to stop successive trials. P has given me a great deal of info about the way in which she believes that her ‘care’ at Gwynfa left her completely wrecked.
‘I lived in Wrexham but was sent to Gwynfa for treatment. Gwynfa changed its name and premises after my court case. Gwynfa is now called Cedar Court. I do recognise some of the names you have mentioned.’
I have blogged about Cedar Court previously. Cedar Court received a glowing inspection from Estyn – the Welsh Gov’ts Schools Inspection Service –  which was shortly followed by complaints from patients and an investigation which led to a report so damning that Cedar Court was closed down. No-one ever explained why Estyn had been so impressed by Cedar Court.
Cedar Court was run by one of Dafydd’s ex-wives. Gwynfa Unit was run by the Top Docs who were Dafydd’s friends and colleagues and the Senior Nurse there was Nigel Mannering Berry, an Angel who trained and worked at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh in the pre-Cambrian. See post ‘Don’t Be Silly, He’s Nice’.
‘We Didn’t Know.’ They knew so little that after every assault, after every rape, after every death and every investigation, the same solution was found – we’ll put Dafydd in charge all over again…
Dafydd’s influence never waned. I have blogged a great deal about the constant aggro that I received from Dafydd’s network, particularly the thugs of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team. In about 2007-08, I was in the Lodwig Villa Dental Practice in Bangor, paying at the reception desk after having a tooth yanked out. My jaw was still numb from the anaesthetic injection, I had a gob full of cotton wool and blood all over my chops. As I was paying there was a commotion behind me. A man was hurling insults and waving his fist at me. It was Andrew Brandt, the husband of Jackie Brandt, who Gwynedd social worker from the Arfon CMHT, who many years before had repeatedly perjured herself in attempts to have me imprisoned. I hadn’t seen or had any contact with Andrew Brandt or the dreadful Jackie for at least ten years. Yet he was in the dentist’s waiting room threatening me. I asked the receptionist to call the police. At that point Andrew Brandt started yelling at the receptionist – and the dentist who had come into reception after hearing the racket – and the waiting patients that I was a dangerous mental patient who should not be allowed into the dentist’s surgery. The dentist got me out of the back door away from Brandt.
I rang the police and reported the matter. I never heard back. The dentist refused to take the matter further as well. Lodwig Villa was the most expensive dentist in Bangor; it was also notorious because it did cosmetic surgery and penis extensions no less (the dentist’s wife being a Top Doctor), which led to a great many quips on the part of my friends about what Brandt’s husband might have been waiting for. The standing joke in Bangor was that when someone went into Lodwig Villa, they should have been asked by the receptionist ‘Teeth, tits or todger?’
I subsequently found out that the dentist and his wife were friends with one of the leading lights in the BMA in north Wales, who had previously worked as a Top Doctor in the Hergest Unit and that is why it was fine for me to be insulted and threatened by someone married to a member of a trafficking gang.
So here’s an Interesting Fact about Dr Sam Farambar who finds it acceptable for his patients to be threatened while they are parting with good money for dental treatment because he is friends with a member of the trafficking gang: Dr Sam Farambar, according to his mates in the BMA, is known to charge patients for examinations and treatments that are not needed. That is why the BMA man and his family did not use the services of Dr Farambar for their own dentistry. I don’t expect that those men paying to have their penes extended need that ‘treatment’ either but they’ll be reassured that they are Not As Other Men and all will be well if they hand the dosh over.
Sam and his wife were alleged to be making a great deal of money from those penis extensions.
Paddy  Ashdown has just announced that he has bladder cancer. Politicians and celebs are all going public with their diagnoses of serious health problems these days, particularly since I began detailing medical research fraud on this blog. The diagnoses are inevitably accompanied by tweets about the ‘FANTASTIC NHS’.
Paddy’s tweet read ‘I have been so moved by all the lovely comments here. But PLEASE this does not merit a fuss. Many go through this. The NHS guys in Yeovil Hosp. are BRILLIANT. I have the best of people and the best of friends to fight this with, which makes me, as so often in my life, very lucky’.
If it does not merit a fuss Paddy, then why have you announced it to the world and its media? Furthermore, how do you know that the NHS guys in Yeovil hospital are BRILLIANT? You will be able to judge whether they are friendly, polite or whether the hospital is clean, but you are completely unable to judge their clinical skills. You won’t even know whether your bladder cancer had been diagnosed slowly or speedily or at this stage whether it has even been misdiagnosed. To be blunt Paddy, you know sod all about bladder cancer and you are in no position to judge whether the treatment that you are receiving is brilliant or fucking hopeless. The Top Docs could tell you anything and you’d probably be none the wiser. But because you’re a tweeting politician, the BMA are going to be very, very friendly and nice to you, because they don’t want any questions raised about them in the House of Lords do they? As a former SBS man Paddy you will have good knowledge of life-saving skills in the face of injury, but bladder cancer research? Er, no, they don’t do that in the SBS.
One of the UK leads for the bladder cancer screening programme is the fragrant Lady Mary Archer. That does not fill me with confidence. Lady Mary, her husband Tuppence and Paddy have all kept quiet about the Westminster Paedophile Ring. See previous posts, including ‘Tuppence And His Fragrant Wife’, which provided details of the unfortunate death of a prostitute with whom Tuppence had sex – although Tuppence and his fragrant wife both perjured themselves in 1987 when they stated that Tuppence had not had sex with her – just before she was due to give evidence against Tuppence at his 2001 trial for perjury. The sex worker concerned, Monica Coghlan, died in April 2001 as a result of a road accident that was not her fault.
2001 – the year following Waterhouse’s enormous cover-up. Lord Snooty the Third entered Parliament two months after Monica was killed.
In July 1987, when Tuppence sued the ‘Daily Star’ for libel, committed perjury and as a result bagged £500k in damages, he was represented by Robert Alexander QC. See previous posts. Robert Alexander became Lord Alexander in 1988 and sat as a Conservative in the Lords. He was a member of and later Treasurer of Middle Temple, as was Ronnie Waterhouse. Alexander was educated at Brighton College (of which he was later President) – as was Keith Best, who as the Tory MP for Anglesey and a Welsh Office Minister, concealed the crimes of Dafydd and the gang (see previous posts) – and at King’s College, Cambridge.

Robert Alexander served as Chairman of the Bar Council, 1985–86. He retired from the Bar in 1989 and served as Chairman of the NatWest bank, 1989–99. He was also a Director of a number of other companies, a member of the Government’s Panel on Sustainable Development and Chairman of the Royal Shakespeare Company, 2000-04. Alexander was President and Chairman of the MCC, an institution favoured by John Major. Alexander was Chancellor of Exeter University, 1998–2005; Chair of JUSTICE, the human rights and law reform group, 1990–2005; and served on the Wakeham Commission into the reform of the Lords. John Wakeham had been Sir Peter Morrison’s boss when Morrison was Minister for Energy.

Robert Alexander was born in Staffordshire, where a long-standing paedophile ring linked to the one in north Wales existed and he died in Lambeth. Alexander died in 2005, so he was very much alive when Tuppence was found guilty of perjury in 2001 and jailed. No-one asked Alexander whether the former Chairman of the Bar Council should have been given a peerage the year after he defended someone who had lied his arse off in the witness box; Alexander did not offer any explanation as to why Lady Mary Archer was never charged with perjury and no-one at all commented on the very convenient death of Monica Coghlan just before she was due to give evidence at Tuppence’s trial. Before she died, Monica had talked of how Tuppence had completely destroyed her life.

 

To return to the latest advert for the qualities of Tuppence’s fragrant wife: Paddy, do you take artificial sweeteners such as aspartame in your drinks, rather than sugar? Because at one point, Top Docs warned patients who did so that aspartame was linked with bladder cancer. That had actually only been demonstrated in rats, so a few years later, the Top Docs told everyone not to worry after all. When I was at Hammersmith doing my MSc, we did the link between aspartame and bladder cancer. The people who taught us about it were the Top Docs who were involved in cancer research fraud. One of them, Professor Nick Wright, is now Sir Nick and for many years was the Head Honcho at CR UK. Who also funded his research.
Wow guys, you’re a great bunch. I just know that I’m gonna fight this and come through it… Er, which clinical trials are we going to make public then??? And er which data sets??
Tweeting about the greatness of those guys in the NHS Paddy is not going to improve the health outcomes of the population of the UK.

Over in Wales, the Baroness of Ely has announced that if she becomes FM, she might renounce her peerage, because she thinks that the people of Wales might not want an FM with a peerage. So why did Citizen Morgan ever accept a peerage in the first place? More importantly, what everyone always wanted to know when I lived in Wales was WHY Citizen Morgan was ever offered one??

The Battle For The Labour Party’s Soul

Readers might remember that the Battle For The Labour Party’s Soul took place in 2015 when Jeremy Corbyn stood for the leadership against a collection of clapped-out Blairites who had previously been convinced that Ed would have been PM by then and that they would all be Cabinet Ministers. Would Yvette the Strong Woman win the leadership? Or would it be Andy ‘I’m From The North Me’ Burnham?  I was delighted when Jeremy won and then appointed John McDonnell as his Deputy, I’d never had such a laugh. Except after all those phone calls to Dafydd of course. Kim Howells is on record as saying that ‘two old Trots’ will never lead the Labour Party to victory, but he’s got to admit that they are enormously entertaining.

There was however a previous Battle For The Labour Party’s Soul which involved an even greater campaign of vilification than that which the mainstream media mounted against Jeremy in 2015, although because the press did not believe that Jezza would ever win the Labour Party leadership, they only mounted their attack on him after he was elected Labour Party leader in Sept 2015.

The first Battle For The Labour Party’s Soul took place in 1983, when Peter Tatchell stood as the Labour Party’s candidate in the Bermondsey by-election of February of that year. Peter Tatchell was subjected to an all-out character assassination before the by-election; Bermondsey was a safe Labour seat, so a massive hate campaign was launched from multiple angles to ensure that Tatchell didn’t win.

Now that Peter Tatchell has attained the status of a National Treasure on account of his Brave Fight For Gay Rights, people who were born by Feb 1983 will find it difficult to believe that to which Tatchell was subjected, by the media, the opposition and by the leadership of his own Party. Tatchell was given a really, really bad time; it was constructed as a battle against the far-left, but most of the insults thrown at Tatchell were slung at him solely because he was gay and a campaigner for gay rights when such past-times were enough to exclude one from polite society.

The press coverage leading up to the 1983 Bermondsey by-election has gone down in history as  the most sordid and vindictive coverage of an election campaign that there has ever been. The dirty tricks and abuse included the famous photo of Tatchell which appeared in the tabloids and was doctored to make it look as though he was wearing heavy make-up. There were quips about ‘the queen’ and references to Tatchell as ‘her’. The campaign material of Tatchell’s opponents, even of that nice Simon Hughes who stood as the Liberal candidate and stressed that the by-election involved a ‘straight choice’ – as opposed to a queer choice – was appalling.

HISTORY - libber834b

Simon Hughes said not one word in condemnation of the homophobic abuse directed towards Tatchell and Hughes subsequently won the by-election. Years later Simon Hughes admitted that he was bisexual and had been in homosexual relationships.

Simon Hughes was the Lib Dem MP for Bermondsey and Old Southwark and the preceding constituencies, 1983-2015; President of the Lib Dems, 2005-09; Deputy Leader of the Lib Dems, 2010-14.

Sir Simon Hughes

Before and after the by-election, Peter Tatchell was violently assaulted and received death threats; I always thought him admirable to have withstood it all. Tatchell was remarkably forgiving towards Simon Hughes when Hughes later admitted to having had gay relationships himself and maintained that he ‘didn’t know’ about the abusive campaign material issued in his name.

I have just read Tatchell’s 1983 book, ‘The Battle for Bermondsey’, which provides much detail regarding the Bermondsey by-election campaign, the events leading up to it and the history of the Labour Party in Bermondsey. In his book, Tatchell provided extracts from the hate mail which he received at the time from people who were horrified at the notion of a gay man representing the constituency, but which dwell extensively on the sexual practices that the writers presume that Tatchell indulged in. It reminded me rather of the screaming homophobes of my teenage years, who, when I stated that I didn’t really have a problem with consenting gays, would yell at me ‘do you know what they do??? They don’t just hold hands you know’. I wasn’t 100% certain of what they did do, because I didn’t consider it any of my business and I’d never have been rude enough to ask them. As I got older I did gain some idea of ‘what they do’ and I still didn’t consider it any of my business… Peter Tatchell’s book provided some shining examples of the lurid fantasies of his more rabid correspondents.

One reason why I read up on the Bermondsey by-election and what went before it, is that Bermondsey, Peckham and Dulwich were the areas which came under the domain of Southwark Borough Council. Previous posts have described how Southwark was one of the Councils which sent huge numbers of kids in care to children’s homes in north Wales throughout the 1970s and 80s and some of the most serious complaints of abuse, such as children being forced to have sex at gunpoint, were made by children from Southwark. Southwark continued to send kids to children’s homes in north Wales in great numbers even after the most serious complaints had been made. Huge amounts of money was being transferred from Southwark Council into the coffers of John Allen et al, so much that numerous people in Southwark Council could not have not noticed this.

Sir Simon Hughes I am sure would tell us that he didn’t know about Dafydd and the gang in north Wales. Previous posts have provided details of Simon Hughes’s background, but I’ll note here that Hughes was educated at the Cathedral School, Llandaff, where he was Dean’s Scholar and Head Boy in 1964, then at Christ College, Brecon and Selwyn College, Cambridge where he graduated with a law degree. Hughes subsequently attended the College of Europe in Bruges. He was called to the Bar at the Inner Temple in 1974.

The Llandaff Cathedral School has long been a favourite seat of learning for the paedophiles’ friends and their offspring. Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain went there; when Simon Hughes was contesting and then representing Bermondsey, Chamberlain was concealing the south London branch of the Westminster Paedophile Ring which was operating via St George’s Hospital, the associated mental health unit Springfield Hospital and Wandsworth Social Services. Chamberlain’s mate Oliver Brooke, the Professor of Paediatrics at St George’s, was a key figure in the pan-European paedophile ring of which Dafydd’s gang was a part. Ollie was jailed in Dec 1986, but his mates who colluded with him all remained in business at St George’s and Wandsworth. See previous posts, including ‘Oliver!’.

After the bad PR which accompanied Ollie’s imprisonment, St George’s symbolically deposed their Dean and in 1988 replaced him with Professor Sir William Asscher. Asscher had spent most of his career in Cardiff, where he had er concealed the crimes of Dafydd’s gang in north Wales, the related gangs in south and west Wales and the crimes of George Thomas aka Viscount Tonypandy, the Labour MP for Cardiff Central and then Cardiff West, 1945-83, the Secretary of State for Wales, 1968-70 and the Speaker of the House, 1976-83. See previous posts.

Christ College, Brecon is another favourite establishment of the paedophiles’ friends. Plenty of highly influential paedophiles’ friends have of course passed through Cambridge University, including Selwyn College, which was one factor which afforded Dafydd et al such protection. As well of course as all those dodgy barristers with Welsh connections.

Simon Hughes first joined the Liberal Party in 1972, when he signed up to Cambridge University Liberal Club as a student. Jeremy Thorpe’s penchant for casual sex with a wide variety of men was well-known in the Liberal Party by 1972 and quite a number of them knew that he was hassling and threatening Norman Scott by then as well, including Emlyn Hooson, a barrister practising in Wales and big figure in the Liberal Party, especially in Wales. People in the Liberal Party also knew about Cyril Smith abusing children and even more people knew about it after details appeared in an alternative paper in Rochdale in 1979 and the story was picked up by ‘Private Eye’. David Steel was so concerned that it would impact negatively on Jeremy Thorpe’s forthcoming trial as well as damage the Liberals that Steel made an arrangement with the crooked much-feared barrister George Carman QC – who acted for Thorpe – to keep the Cyril Smith story out of the mainstream press. Carman knew about Dafydd’s gang in north Wales/Chester.

 

Lord Elizabeth Butler-Sloss is a member of Inner Temple. Butler-Sloss’s  brother Michael Havers was the Tory MP for Wimbledon, 1970-87 – Geoffrey Chamberlain and many of his colleagues lived in Wimbledon – and while Havers was Attorney General for England and Wales as well as AG for N Ireland, 1979-87, under Thatch, he blocked prosecutions against a number of high profile paedophiles, including the diplomat Sir Peter Hayman.

Elizabeth Butler-Sloss came into her own in 1988, when she Chaired the Inquiry into the Cleveland Child Abuse Scandal and concealed the extent of the havoc caused by the trafficking gang in the North East of England with links to Dafydd’s gang (see previous posts eg. ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas And The Culprits Were Named…’).

Mahatma Ghandi and Jawaharlal Nehru, the PM of India, studied law at the Inner Temple:

The Inn contains several buildings and sets of buildings used to house Chambers, with those rooms above the second floor generally being residential in nature. The sets are Crown Office Row, Dr Johnson’s Buildings, Farrar’s Building, Francis Taylor Building, Harcourt Buildings, Hare Court, King’s Bench Walk, Littleton Building, Mitre Court Buildings, Paper Buildings and the eastern side of Temple. 

 

Simon Hughes became part of the SDP-Liberal Alliance, along with Dr Death – who was personally mates with some of the Top Docs in north Wales who were facilitating Dafydd’s gang – the Boy David and Shirl, who also knew all about Dafydd’s gang and who, in 1979 when she was Secretary of State for Education, refused to hold a Public Inquiry into UCNW (Bangor University), despite the chaos reigning as a result of the institution being run by Dafydd and the gang. Hughes joined the newly founded Lib Dems in 1988 and was their Spokesman for Education until 1992, during which time teachers in north Wales and elsewhere with links to Dafydd’s gang were convicted of offences against children.

Simon Hughes moved to Bermondsey in 1981. There may have been many reasons why Hughes relocated, but in 1981 Dafydd’s gang were in need of help, because Mary Wynch had begun legal action against them. Mary alleged serious corruption on the part of legal and medical professionals in north Wales, so she was using Birnberg and Co, based in Camden, as her solicitors.

Simon Hughes will have known about Dafydd and the gang in north Wales by 1981, because Mary’s litigation made legal history and caused a stir from the moment that she began it. It was in the aftermath of Mary beginning legal action that reinforcements arrived in north Wales, including in the form of Tony and Sadie Francis, in the early 1980s. Dafydd knew that he could be in very, very deep shit if he didn’t call in numerous favours and those being called upon to help out knew that they’d go down with the Titanic as well if assistance wasn’t forthcoming.

Strange but true

 

On 25 Jan 1981, The Gang Of Four broke the mould of politics and made the Limehouse Declaration:

  • The SDP Gang of Four Stock Photo, Royalty Free Image ...
  • How Lib Dems got where they are today | Politics | The ...
  • Sdp Conference Stock Photos & Sdp Conference Stock Images ...

 

When the Gang Of Four broke the mould of politics, they based their strategy for targeting seats entirely on their knowledge of Dafydd’s gang and the Westminster Paedophile Gang (see post ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’).

The strategy led to this:

The Baroness Thatcher

4 May 1979 – 28 November 1990

 

In 1992 -after the Gang of Four had broken the mould of politics and the Tories had been in Gov’t for 13 years – there were proposals that Garth Angharad, a ‘hospital for mentally abnormal criminals’ near Dolgellau, should be closed down. Elfyn Llwyd, the Plaid MP for Meirionnydd Nant Conwy and then Dwyfor Meirionnydd, 1992-2010 and a very good friend of Dafydd’s gang, tabled an Early Day Motion on 21 May 1992 opposing the closure of Garth Angharad, on the grounds that there were no other ‘hospitals’ in Wales providing a service like Garth Angharad. What services did Garth Angharad provide? Well it didn’t have an A&E or any machines that went ping or indeed even any Top Doctors. Because Garth Angharad was indeed a hospital like no other. It wasn’t run by the NHS or even BUPA; Garth Angharad was a remote old building hidden away in Snowdonia which was owned by Paul Hett, a solicitor who was struck off in 2007 for embezzling clients’ money. Paul Hett was the proud owner/manager of three children’s homes/schools in north Wales where children were abused, some of those schools/children’s homes having been located at Garth Angharad. Hett was so flaky and the abuse of kids housed in his institutions so bad that even Ronnie Waterhouse had a few harsh words for Paul Hett and his institutions. Garth Angharad was simply a prison for the victims of Dafydd’s gang who were held there illegally. See post ‘More On Those Prisons For Folk Who Dared Complain’.

The case conference held about me in 1989 – while I was sitting in a London medical school as a postgrad – which I only found out about four years ago and was Chaired by Dr Chris Hunter, Dafydd’s mate who I had never heard of until four years ago and took evidence from numerous other people whom I hadn’t heard of which culminated in Hunter declaring that I was extremely dangerous, capable of murder and should be sent to a high security hospital and offering to compile a Court Report even though I wasn’t facing any charges at the time (see post ‘The Night Of The (Dr Chris) Hunter), was held at Garth Angharad.

Simon Hughes was one of those who signed the EDM opposing the closure of Garth Angharad. See posts ‘Further Information on Garth Angharad Hospital’ and ‘More On Those Who Signed That Early Day Motion’.

When Simon Hughes signed that EDM opposing the closure of a an unregulated private prison owned by a man who had owned and managed schools where children were abused, Simon Hughes had spent four years as the Lib Dems Spokesman on Education.

 

Peter Tatchell eventually became the Secretary of the Bermondsey Labour Party, but he and his supporters did not become the dominant force there until the early 1980s. The conveyor belt of kids in care from Southwark to north Wales had begun years before Peter arrived in Southwark. Peter had previously lived in Hornsey (north London), yet another area with which Dafydd’s gang had excellent diplomatic relations; Peter had been a youth worker. Previous posts have mentioned that as a gay activist in London at the time, Peter must have known about the trade in people between London and north Wales but he has never spoken about it.

I do not however assume that Peter was necessarily involved in abusing youngsters. Previous posts have discussed a good friend of mine who moved to north Wales in 1979 and opened a cafe. He ended up being as much of a target of Dafydd’s gang as I did, because he told a few too many people that pre-1979, he was a youth worker in north London and that he withdrew from a social work course after he raised concerns about the abuse and neglect of clients by Haringey and Islington Councils, only to be told by his tutors at the North London Poly that he could not criticise the Councils and that was the end of it. This man also told people in north Wales about the luxurious life-style of one Margaret Hodge that he witnessed and he also knew a well-known ‘radical lawyer’ and his wife, the radical lawyer’s wife  in recent years having sat as a member of the GMC. The Top Doctors dripped so much poison into so many ears regarding my friend who owned the cafe that eventually no Top Doc would agree to treat him and it was recorded upon his medical records that he ‘destroys therapists’. No, they destroyed him because he was a witness and a whistleblower…

In Bermondsey, much was made of Peter Tatchell being Unemployed. Perhaps Peter Tatchell considered that a better option than working in social work/youth work in London at that time…

Tatchell’s book enters into considerable detail regarding the dreadful corruption in the Bermondsey Labour Party and its long history. Tatchell is not simply speculating; the people and events which he describes have been verified but most of it was never reported in the mainstream media.

John O’Grady was the leader of Southwark Borough Council, 1968-82. John Allen opened Bryn Alyn, which received so many kids in care from Southwark, in the late 1960s. O’Grady was a founder member and the Vice-Chair of the Social Democratic Alliance (SDA), which was formed in 1975 by a group of right wing Labour MPs and was a forerunner of the SDP. After much twisting and turning by everyone involved, after the SDP was formed in 1981, the SDA dissolved into it.

 

Tatchell identifies the Labour MP for Bermondsey, Bob Mellish, as well as his business associates and friends, as being the cause of the toxicity in Bermondsey. Mellish and his mates ran the Constituency Labour Party as a personal fiefdom, lied to everyone and rigged absolutely everything for the benefit of themselves while Mellish made much of being a True Cockney Who Represented The People, particularly against Incomers And Migrants. Bob Mellish sounds as though he was doing exactly the same as Dafydd, but Dafydd did it in north Wales in Welsh. The strategies were identical.

Bob Mellish’s business associates included the notorious T. Dan Smith from the North East of England who was notorious for his massive civic corruption, particularly involving local authorities and building contracts, which stretched as far as London. T. Dan Smith was involved with the corrupt Yorkshire-based businessman John Poulson, who in turn was responsible for the end of the career of Reginald Maudling, Heath’s Home Secretary who had previously served as Chancellor of the Exchequer Under Macmillan and Douglas-Home, Reggie having been caught out in dodgy business deals linked to Poulson. More recently, allegations that John Poulson was involved with the organised abuse of children have surfaced. See previous posts for further information on T. Dan Smith and John Poulson.

Robert Joseph Mellish, Baron Mellish served as the Labour MP for Rotherhithe, 1946-50 and then Bermondsey, 1950-82. Mellish was born in Deptford, the thirteenth of fourteen children. His father was a docker. After Mellish left school he worked for the TGWU. He began work at the Stratford office of the newly created TGWU on the evening of the day that he left school. So Mellish was there at the very beginning, which might explain why he was selected as the candidate for Rotherhithe, in the face of candidates which were considered to have a much greater chance and who were more popular across the constituency, after the TGWU dockers’ delegates voted for him en bloc. He easily won the constituency in a by-election in 1946 and in 1950 the constituency was expanded and named Bermondsey.

Mellish had fought the Japanese in South-East Asia during WW II, which gave him a great deal of kudos in many circles, the Japs being renowned for their extreme cruelty during the war.

In 1950 Mellish was appointed PPS to George Strauss, Minister of Supply. George Russell Strauss, Baron Strauss (18 July 1901 – 5 June 1993) was a Labour MP for 46 years and was Father of the House of Commons, 1974-79. Strauss was the son of the Tory (and previously a Liberal Unionist) MP Arthur Strauss (1847–1920), who later joined the Labour Party. George Strauss was educated at Rugby, where the hostile treatment experienced by him and other Jewish boys left him as a vehement supporter of racial equality. Sadly some of that obviously didn’t rub off on ‘I hate darkies’ Mellish, more of which soon. Strauss became a metal merchant and a leading member of the London County Council on which his wife Patricia also served.

Members of the London County Council, including Jim Callaghan’s wife Audrey (see post ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’), colluded with the organised abuse of children and vulnerable people.

Strauss gained the seat of Lambeth North in 1929. He lost it in 1931, but regained it in a 1934 by-election. In 1939 Strauss was expelled from the Labour Party for supporting the ‘Popular Front’ movement of Stafford Cripps, whom he had served as PPS. Strauss was Parliamentary Secretary at the Ministry of Transport, 1945-47 and was the Minister of Supply, 1947-51. After boundary changes, Strauss became MP for Vauxhall in 1950, which he represented until 1979. On 9 July 1979 Strauss was created a life peer as Baron Strauss of Vauxhall in the London Borough of Lambeth.

The investigation into the paedophile ring that operated in the children’s homes of Lambeth throughout the 1970s, 80s and 90s which had links with Dafydd’s gang – kids were abused in Lambeth and sent to north Wales where they were abused – maintained that organised abuse of children in Lambeth dated as least as far back as the 1940s. See previous posts.

In 1951 Bob Mellish was appointed PPS to the Minister for Pensions, George Isaacs. George Isaacs was the MP for Gravesend, 1923-24, then Southwark, 1929-59. George Isaacs was an active trade unionist in the early years of the 20th century and served as General Secretary of the National Society of Operative Printers and Assistants (NATSOPA), 1909-49. This post also took Isaacs onto the General Council of the TUC – he was President of the TUC in 1945 – and he was active in the Labour Party. Isaacs was Minister of Labour and National Service in Attlee’s Gov’t, 1945-51 and then Minister of Pensions in 1951. Isaacs retired from Parliament in 1959. He had long since moved to East Molesey in Surrey where he served as a Deputy Lieutenant and as a JP. Isaacs was eventually Chairman of the Surrey Bench of Magistrates. Isaacs lived until 1979, so he was around to assist Dafydd and the gang as they built up their empire of child sex workers throughout the 1970s.

 

Bob Mellish was Chairman of the London Regional Labour Party, 1956-77 and it was through the London Regional Labour Party that Mellish exerted influence during the 1950s and early 1960s, when Labour were in Opposition.

Mellish was appointed as Gov’t Chief Whip, 1969-70 and 1974-76, by Harold Wilson and was renowned as a tough Chief Whip. He was Parliamentary Under-Secretary to the Minister for Housing and Local Government, 1964-67, then becoming Minister of Public Building and Works, 1967-69. Mellish became Minister for Housing and Local Government in 1970, under Tony Crosland, Secretary of State for Local Government and Regional Planning. Tony Crosland was a swinging bisexual who concealed the paedophile gang in the North East of England which was linked to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales and supplied Dafydd’s gang with staff and children from the 1970s onward (see post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part III’).

Mellish was a Wilson loyalist and was said to have wept when he heard the news that Wilson had stepped down as PM in 1976. He supported Footie to replace Wilson, but in vain; Callaghan won the leadership ballot. Mellish got on well at a personal level with Foot, despite the great ideological differences between the two men, but disliked Callaghan so much that he resigned from the Cabinet within months of Wilson’s own retirement.

It was Foot who in Dec 1981 as Labour Leader made a speech stating that Tatchell would not be endorsed as a Labour candidate and that Foot didn’t ever envisage that he would be.

I mentioned previously that Bob Mellish was a racist git and proud of it. At one stage he opened a speech by saying “As I come to this platform, many of you will know that I have never been an anti-racialist”. In 1976 Mellish argued that the Malawi Asians expelled by Hastings Banda should not be allowed to live in Britain despite possessing British passports:

We cannot go on like this. I do not care what those on this side of the House, or the Opposition side or anywhere else, say. Problems at local level will become worse and worse for our own people unless something is done. All hon. Members know that people come to their surgeries describing the most distressing conditions – terrifying conditions. People born and bred in their own constituencies have been on the housing waiting list for as long as six years. But, on the points system, one must give immigrants preference…People cannot come here just because they have a British passport – full stop.

Wasn’t having a British passport traditionally the essence of the criteria that allowed one to ‘come here’?

Tatchell mentioned in his book that a black person was actively blocked from becoming active in the Bermondsey Labour Party when Mellish and his henchmen were in control.

 

Thatch’s Gov’t was keen to get a Labour figure to sit on the London Docklands Development Corporation as Vice-Chairman in 1980 but the Labour Party was entirely opposed to the creation of the LDDC and refused to nominate. Mellish offered a way through as he was willing to take the post; as a sitting MP he would lose his seat if the post was paid, so a special provision was made that it would be unpaid until the Vice-Chairman elected to take payment.

Mellish’s appointment as Vice-Chairman of the LDDC, a non-elected body, was made directly by Michael Heseltine. Heseltine originated from Swansea and is someone else who knew about Dafydd’s gang, their role in the Westminster Paedophile Ring and Heseltine tried to benefit from that knowledge. Sir Anthony Meyer’s battle with Beata Brookes, a Tory politician in north Wales who was a former social worker, which resulted in an all-out civil war in the Tory Party in north east Wales (see previous posts) and Meyer’s subsequent ‘stalking horse’ challenge to Thatch’s leadership was a plan by Meyer to lever Heseltine in as Tory leader, but for reasons which are not yet clear to me, Heseltine didn’t go for it at the time as Meyer expected and hoped.

When I wrote my post ‘The Celtic Iron Lady And Yet More Recent History’, I presumed that Sir Anthony had gone into battle to prevent Beata Brookes from bagging a Westminster seat because he knew that Brookes was a mate of Dafydd and Lucille and was fully on board with the trafficking ring. I found out later that Anthony Meyer was also fully on board with the trafficking ring and went into battle because he just hated Beata and the Thatcherite wing of the Tory Party. Pretty much an everyday story of north Wales folk – fighting tooth and nail because they hate each other but everyone’s on board with Dafydd’s gang.

Mellish’s wiki entry tells us that his ‘acceptance of a post with the LDDC exacerbated the split with the Bermondsey Constituency Labour Party which had elected a slate of left-wing officers at its annual meeting that same year’. That is true, but the wiki entry does not mention the endemic corruption and the business deals with corrupt businessmen that Mellish was involved with which were part of the reason why there was a ‘split’ between Mellish and the ‘left-wing officers’ of his CLP. The split was always described as being ideological, but Mellish was involved in matters which no honest activist would ever have been able to defend and support.

Mellish’s wiki entry continues with the info that he ‘was against the shift to the left in the Labour Party and decided not to stand for election again. Tam Dalyell later said that “Mellish’s final years in the Commons were dogged by controversy and beset with troubles in Bermondsey from hard-left ‘yuppie’ incomers and the Militant tendency, people who were moons apart from the dockers who had selected him four decades earlier”.

Tam Dalyell failed to mention that Mellish ensured that his constituents knew all about his dad being a docker and Mellish fighting the Japs during the war which will have gone down very well with many of them, but no-one told those constituents that Mellish and his crew were exporting the most disadvantaged kids in the Borough into the hands of a gang of paedophiles in north Wales and that the reason why Mellish’s constituents couldn’t get housing wasn’t simply because the darkies were jumping the queue, it was because Mellish and his corrupt associates had completely screwed up local authority housing.

You should have socked it to them Mr Tatchell, I know that you were given a dreadful time, but if you had exposed the worst of what was going on and the links between Dafydd’s gang and Thatcher’s Gov’t, then history could not have been rewritten as a fight between yuppies playing at being lefties against a noble working class man who Really Spoke For His Constituents. Likewise had anyone briefed the dockers re some aspects of Enoch Powell and his activities, they might not have been so robust in their (alleged) support of him in 1968.

It was the same old crew who won the biggest prizes as a result of Lord Bob and his mates being The Authentic Voice Of Sahf London:

Documents released from the National Archives relatively recently confirmed that Thatcher did indeed want to extinguish trade union power in the UK. Nice one Lord Bob of the Dockers, you certainly helped there!

So why was Bob Mellish involved with Dafydd and the gang? Probably because of this particular child molester and mate of Dafydd’s gang, who was another Labour Party vote-puller of the same vintage as Bob Mellish and was also a friend of Harold Wilson and someone who, like Mellish, hated Jim Callaghan:

The Viscount Tonypandy

Bob Mellish wanted his ally John O’Grady to be selected to succeed him as the constituency MP, but the constituency party selected  Tatchell, the Secretary of the Bermondsey CLP. Mellish threatened to resign immediately and force a by-election if Tatchell was endorsed by the Labour Party nationally. Michael Foot, then the Labour Party leader, hung Peter Tatchell out to dry in his Dec 1981 speech – without forewarning Tatchell – in which he stated that Tatchell would never be endorsed “so far as I am concerned”. Footie was rude about Thatchell’s Gay Lib activism. This was the Footie who shagged anything that moved of both sexes when he was younger and who’s wife Jill Craigie told him to satisfy his ‘additional needs’ with other people but not to bother to provide her with the details. See previous posts. Footie knew about Dafydd and the gang and colluded with them. Footie kept his own sexual shenanigans out of the press by making it clear to them that he had even more dirt on Lord Rothermere and Lord Beaverbrook than they did on him and one word about Footie’s additional needs in the press and the world would find out about the additional needs of Lords Rothermere and Beaverbrook.

Those other men of principle Denis Healey and Fattersley, who also knew about the activities of Dafydd’s gang, as well as the activities of George Thomas, Greville Janner, Sir Peter Morrison, Lord St John of Fawsley, Sir Cyril Smith, Jeremy Thorpe, Lord Louis of Mountbatten, Ma’am Darling and Ma’am Darling’s husband Lord Snowdon, joined Footie in condemning Peter Tatchell and his gay leftie ways. Merlyn Rees was also Shocked and Disgusted by Tatchell. Merlyn Rees not only colluded with Dafydd and the paedophiles throughout his career, particularly when he was Home Secretary, 1976-79, (see previous posts), but Merlyn Rees was a Director of Municipal Mutual in 1996 (see post ‘I Predict A Riot’).

Municipal Mutual were the insurers of Clwyd County Council and the North Wales Police. In 1996, when the Jillings Report into the abuse of children in the care of Clwyd County Council since 1974 was completed after the Jillings Investigation and it was known that Jillings had concluded that the abuse had been horrific, indefensible and that organised abuse had been taking place in north Wales for decades prior to the 1970s, Michael Beloff QC, the legal adviser to Municipal Mutual, ensured that no-one except for Municipal Mutual’s lawyers read the Jillings Report, not even the Clwyd Councillors. Michael Beloff QC ordered that if Malcolm King, the Chair of Clwyd’s Social Services Committee – who was feared to be a bit of a loose cannon where the matter of the abuse of kids was concerned – ever managed to see the Report and publicise its contents, then King should be sacked. See post ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake…’

No-one did ever see the Jillings Report for many, many years because all known copies were pulped; in 2013, someone produced a copy that had been lurking quietly somewhere and it was finally made publicly available. It was so heavily redacted that it was virtually meaningless, even to those of us with a good knowledge of who the culprits were.

 

When the UK press were throwing everything including the kitchen sink at Peter Tatchell, Dafydd’s gang were trying to snare me into a glorious future which would have involved providing sexual services to the vile old grunters who were giving Tatchell such a bad time.

Er, no Dafydd, I wouldn’t have even been tempted… Not even if I had known that one of their mates was the thirteenth son of a docker who had fought the Japs.

No rational person would ever have been tempted, which was why Dafydd’s gang murdered people who challenged them.

In August 1982, it became clear that Tatchell would be permitted to stand if the CLP selected him again, so Mellish announced his resignation from the Labour Party to sit as an Independent MP. In November 1992, Mellish resigned his seat in Parliament and forced the 1983 by-election in which Mellish campaigned for John O’Grady who stood as a Real Bermondsey Labour candidate. O’Grady’s campaign involved him travelling around the constituency in a horse and trap singing a homophobic song about Thatchell.

You should have given me a ring Peter, I’d have popped down to Bermondsey three years later and sung a song about Dafydd, because I’d encountered him by then.

O’Grady performed badly at the Feb 1983 by-election although Mellish did take satisfaction from the heavy defeat of Tatchell by the bisexual Simon Hughes.

In 2003, after Mellish’s death, Tatchell claimed that Mellish was secretly bisexual and was “persistent” in propositioning Tatchell but warned Thatchell when he was rebuffed not to publicise it as no one would believe him. It wouldn’t actually surprise me if this was true. I’m not someone who believes that a paedophile lurks on every corner, but these mad old sods were so confused and hypocritical about sexuality, including theirs, that some very odd things were happening. Tatchell quietly behaved with a great deal of dignity in the face of these bastards and while I would never suggest that he should ever have conducted himself like them, Tatchell should have dropped the bomb of Dafydd, the Top Docs and the trafficking gang and dealt with them for good. We would have helped you Peter, but the British state were far too busy assisting Dafydd in murdering our friends and wrecking our lives. Even so, had someone even told me that Tatchell had been stung by the London arm of Dafydd’s gang I’d have been a most willing worker…

In 1985 the thirteenth son of a docker who didn’t like darkies and had also fought the Japs stood down from the LDDC and accepted a peerage on 12 July 1985 as Baron Mellish, of Bermondsey in Greater London, sitting as an independent.

In July 1985, Dr D.G.E. Wood, Tony Francis et al were busying themselves with preparations to wreck the future careers of my friends and I. I had contacted lawyers as well as Keith Best, the Tory MP for Anglesey, re my concerns over the activities of the mental health services in north Wales, unaware that the whole lot of them were colluding with the gang. Mary Wynch’s application for leave to sue Dafydd and the gang was heard by the Master of the Rolls on 9 July 1985; Mary was given leave to go ahead and sue Dafydd and the gang. See post ‘The Mary Wynch Case – Details’.

In August 1985 my best friend from school worked in the box office at the Edinburgh Fringe. When she refused to pull strings to obtain a ticket and accommodation – the event was sold out by the time that she was asked – for Samuel Brittan, a journo on the FT and the brother of Leon Brittan, Home Secretary, June 1983-Sept 1985, Samuel sent a copy of the letter that my friend had sent him, in which she apologised but explained that she could not get him a ticket and an hotel, to his mate Michael Grade, the then Controller of BBC 1. Michael Grade wrote back to Samuel telling Samuel that he was ‘appalled’ at my friend’s ‘rudeness’ and that he would ensure that Samuel did get a ticket ‘even if I have to give you mine’. The Edinburgh Fringe box office went apeshit, presented my friend with copies of Brittan and Grade’s correspondence and gave her a bollocking. Just weeks previously my friends’ parents, who were both mental health professionals working in the West Country, had given me advice as to how to deal with the horrors then being thrown at me by the north Wales mental health services.

In 1986, my friend and her husband moved to a flat in Bethnal Green when they began their careers in the media. I stayed at their flat for a short time, for the first few weeks of my MSc at Hammersmith Hospital. We were all threatened by some seriously nasty characters. We attributed it to thuggery and possibly fascist activity but I now know that the sex offenders and nasties were gifts from Dafydd’s gang. Over the next five years, we all found ourselves on the receiving end of gangsters (see post ‘The Turn of The Screw’). In early 1991, just after I was forced out of my job at St George’s, my friend was unlawfully sacked from her job with the Royal Television Society. Her husband was soon afterwards forced out of his job at the BBC. Dear old Michael Grade and his pals were terrifically good mates with everyone at the RTS and the BBC… See previous posts.

Leon Brittan was known to have concealed the Westminster Paedophile Ring and there have been allegations that he too abused children and young people.

It was Michael Grade who supported Esther Rantzen in establishing ChildLine, after a conversation between them in 1985. Rantzen has been accused of ignoring calls to ChildLine from kids in care in north Wales and one woman maintains that she told Rantzen about Jimmy Savile but was ignored. In 1988 I wrote to Rantzen about Dafydd and the abuses of mental health patients in north Wales. I did not receive a reply. Rantzen’s sister Priscilla Taylor worked as a social worker for Lambeth Borough Council and Priscilla’s boss Valerie – later Baroness – Howarth was appointed Chief Exec of ChildLine by Rantzen.

Bob Mellish was a supporter of Millwall Football Club and was President of the Millwall Supporters Club. Wasn’t there a sizeable problem with serious violence on the part of Millwall fans at that time? And er, infiltration of the fans by the NF? NF recruiters distributing their leaflets at matches involving Millwall? And links between the organised violence at football matches and serious organised crime?

The tallest building in Milton Keynes, Mellish Court, is named after Bob Mellish. So there’s an honour for Milton Keynes, although perhaps someone could explain why a corrupt old bastard from Bermondsey who’s business associates were builders and planners involved in municipal corruption across the whole of England should be honoured by a tower block in Milton Keynes…

China's 'loadsamoney' culture shocked this humble ...

 

Tam Dalyell’s obituary of Mellish which was published in the Indie gives further insights into the sources of Mellish’s power. Dalyell described Mellish as the ‘cement that prevented the Labour Party being split asunder’ under the entry of Britain into the Common Market and that Mellish achieved that by a ‘remarkable feat of political management’ which was matched by his ‘wheeling and dealing’ in Gov’t on ‘wage limits agreed by Jack Jones and Hugh Scanlon, the closed shop, the Docklands Labour Scheme and the compulsory introduction of comprehensive schools’.

Dalyell told us that Mellish was far more successful as Wilson’s Chief Whip than anyone ever thought that he would be; when Mellish was appointed, it was widely believed that Wilson had made a terrible mistake and that Mellish would be the most dreadful bully, but ooh no, he did a wonderful job. Mellish was appointed Chief Whip in 1969, just after John Allen opened the Bryn Alyn Community and the trade in disadvantaged children between the wider UK – including Southwark – and north Wales began in earnest. George Thomas was Secretary of State for Wales, April 1968-June 1970. When George Thomas was Secretary of State, responsibilities for Health and Social Services in Wales were transferred to the Welsh Office. George was in charge of the kiddies homes and the psychiatric hospitals!!!

 

Ian Mikardo, Mellish’s constituency neighbour and someone who was on the left of the Labour Party, was initially ‘quite appalled’ at Mellish’s appointment as Chief Whip but later stated that Mellish was ‘to a perfect degree a round peg in a round hole’. Ian Mikardo was someone who knew that disadvantaged children from his own constituency in the East End were being abused and trafficked by Dafydd’s gang but Mikardo said nothing (see previous posts).

Eight of Mellish’s 13 siblings died as children from conditions such as meningitis and scarlet fever. According to Dalyell, this resulted in Mellish having a lifelong commitment to healthcare. You’ve guessed it, Mellish ‘devoted his time to the work of the East End hospital Boards throughout his life’. The East End hospital Boards who did not help their disadvantaged patients as much as they pretended to or indeed should or could have; the hospital Boards who removed slum kids from their parents and transported them to Australia knowing that they were going to lives of sexual abuse and slavery or, from the late 1960s onward, sent them into the arms of Dafydd and the paedophile gang.

For details of how, in the mid-1980s, a group of healthcare workers and managers in the East End who had concealed Dafydd’s crimes extracted dosh from Ken Clarke at the DoH to reopen the Mildmay Mission Hospital in Shoreditch and transform it into a hospice for terminally ill AIDS patients, many of whom were rent boys who had been abused and trafficked by Dafydd’s gang, see post ‘Apocalypse Now’.

The Mildmay also looked after a number of high profile celebrity AIDS patients. Their names have never been revealed, being people who were afforded rather more respect and concern than the victims of Dafydd’s gang. A number of celebs, including former East Enders stars are supporters of the Mildmay’s work.

The Labour MP Peter Shore was someone who assisted in extracting the dosh from the DoH to transform the Mildmay into a hospice for AIDS patients. Peter Shore was one of those who opposed Peter Tatchell standing as the Labour candidate in Bermondsey. Shore was someone else who knew about the activities of Dafydd et al and benefited greatly from keeping his trap shut (see previous posts).

 

A few other Interesting Facts with regard to Bob Mellish:

Mellish’s appointment as PPS to George Isaacs was backed by Mandelson’s granddad Herbert Morrison, then the Deputy Leader of the Labour Party. George Thomas was first elected in 1945, the year that Mandy’s granddad became Deputy PM. Mandy’s granddad knew Thomas.

Mandy’s granddad was born in and went to school in Lambeth. He was Leader of London County Council, 1934-40; MP for Hackney South, 1935-45 and for Lewisham East and then Lewisham South, 1945-59. In 1959 Herbert Morrison was elevated to the peerage.

Tam Dalyell alleged that Bob Mellish’s commitment to improving housing and slum clearance ‘created a bond’ between Mellish and Dame Evelyn Sharp, who was Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Housing and Local Gov’t, 1955-66, during which time Mellish served in that Ministry. Sharp was born in Hornsey – now part of Haringey – the daughter of the vicar of Ealing. Sharp’s uncles included Richard Harvey, Archdeacon of Halifax, Sir John Harvey, Judge of the Supreme Court of New South Wales and Sir Ernest Harvey, Chief Cashier to the Bank of England. Evelyn Sharp studied at Somerville College, Oxford and graduated in 1925.

Sharp joined the Civil Service in 1926, served at first in the Board of Trade and then in the Ministry of Health, which at the time was concerned with Housing and Local Gov’t and this became Sharp’s speciality. When the Ministry of Housing and Local Gov’t was formed in 1951, Sharp worked with Harold Macmillan. From 1964, Sharp’s Minister was Dick Crossman. Mellish was promoted to Minister of Works in 1967, the year after Sharp retired. Dick Crossman was Lord President of the Council, 1966-68 – Herbert Morrison was Lord President of the Council, 1945-51 – one responsibility which comes with that position is that of the visitor to UCNW.

Evelyn Sharp had some interesting sidelines for the mandarin running the Ministry concerned with Housing and Local Gov’t while a corrupt MP with business associates who were notorious for local authority corruption in terms of building and planning worked in her Ministry. After she retired, Sharp was Director of Bovis, the construction company and was President of the London and Quadrant Housing Trust. Sharp served on the Royal Commission on Local Gov’t in England, 1966-69 and was a member of the IBA, 1966-73. Sharp’s enthusiasm for modernist architecture and urban rebuilding caused it to be said of her that she ‘truly did come close to doing as much damage as the Luftwaffe’; Sharp gave her backing to many development of high rise flats. Low income residents of the cities of the UK will have had a bum deal, but Sharp, Bovis, Mellish and their mates will have done very well out of it.

When Mellish was causing havoc in Bermondsey, Mandy was working for LWT and then in 1985 began ‘modernising’ the Labour party and doing all that he could to make the Windbag electable after the Windbag was appointed Leader of the Labour Party in Oct 1983. The Windbag who knew Tony Francis and who’s wife was a school teacher from north Wales and who were both colluding with Dafydd et al.

The biggest light entertainment star on British TV in the early 1990s was Cilla Black; ‘Blind Date’, the show hosted by Cilla, was so profitable for LWT that it turned it’s fortunes around. Cilla was a close friend of Geoffrey Chamberlain at St George’s Hospital Medical School, who was colluding with that paedophile ring in south London and Dafydd’s gang in north Wales. Mandy was a member of Lambeth Borough Council, 1979-82.

Michael Grade was an executive for LWT throughout the 1970s and in the early years of the 80s.

Tam Dalyell considered Bob Mellish to be the ‘authentic voice of working class dockland London’ – the authentic voice who was so concerned for his dockland constituents that he helped Thatch out by becoming Vice-Chair of the LDDC, 1981-85.

Mellish’s constituents will all have bagged jobs as bankers after the development of London’s Docklands:

For further information regarding how those who concealed the crimes of Dafydd and the gang were part of the regeneration of London’s Docklands, see post ‘The Bodies Beneath Canary Wharf’.

Bob Mellish is on record as saying about Harold Wilson that ‘the Prime Minister is a soft and decent man, almost too gentle. Some say it’s a weakness. I believe it’s a strength. He is very loyal to his friends…I am not a sycophant, but I do respect and admire him.’

Bob Mellish: one crooked old bastard who was Mr Big in the London Labour Party, supporting a whole host of other crooked old bastards, who were all in the pockets of the crooked old bastard who was PM. The entire farce was underpinned by an absolute idiot but a very dangerous idiot:

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

He doesn’t just hold hands you know!

Bob Mellish died in May 1998, during the middle of the Waterhouse Inquiry. Ronnie Waterhouse was on very good terms with Frank Chapple, the General Secretary of the ‘moderate’ union, the EETPU (Electrical, Electronic, Telecommunications and Plumbing Union), 1966-84 and Ronnie acted for the EETPU on many occasions. Chapple was personally involved in the attempt in Nov 1980 to flood the Bermondsey Labour Party with phoney members – many of whom lived nowhere near Bermondsey – when Tatchell and other members of Bermondsey CLP were challenging Mellish and his mates with regard to their abuses and corruption. The applications to join the Bermondsey CLP were all done using the EETPU as a vehicle, by people using their affiliation to the EETPU as the basis of their application. Two such people were Southwark Councillors Charles Sawyer and Joe Lees. If they are still alive perhaps they would like to explain why they sent so many disadvantaged kids into the hands of a vicious sex abuse gang in north Wales who then trafficked them back down to London to work as rent boys, infecting many of them with HIV in the process.

Frank Chapple, Baron Chapple of Hoxton (8 August 1921 – 19 October 2004) was born in the slum area of Hoxton, east London. There was no bath or running hot water in the Chapple home. A Communist Party member early in his adult life, Chapple left the party after and partly as a result of, the Soviet suppression of the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. Thereafter he remained a forceful anti-communist. Frank Chapple will have known many of the members of the Communist Party in the 1950s, including many of the radicals who used to spend their summers at Croesor in north Wales who were friends with Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, his wife Amabel and their friend Bertrand Russell. The crowd who used to visit Croesor knew about Dafydd’s gang, which before Dafydd ran the show was led by Gwynne the lobotomist (see post eg. ‘The Village’).

Hoxton is just down the road from the flat in Bethnal Green in which my friends lived in 1986-87. The Krays grew up in Hoxton and hung around with the more degenerate politicians as well as gangsters and showbiz folk. Lod Bob Boothby used rent boys and was reputed to have had an affair with Ronnie Kray as well as his long-standing relationship with Harold Macmillan’s wife Dorothy. I cannot understand why no-one was surprised when many years later it was revealed that Ronnie Kray was being feted and treated like a King in Broadmoor. Broadmoor and indeed the whole mental health system was run by criminals and traffickers which was how Jimmy Savile made his way into it and was given senior managerial responsibilities. See posts ‘Socio-Politicial Context of The North Wales Mental Health Services In The 1980s’, ‘A Pretty Classy Piece Of Operation’ and ‘The Old Devils’.

 

Chapple served as a member of the General Council of the TUC, 1971-83. Throughout that time the TUC concealed the crimes of Dafydd and associated gangs, sometimes very directly by protecting abusers employed in health and social care who were members of trade unions (see eg. posts ‘A Very COHSE Relationship With Some Very Nasty People’ and ‘Mary Turner – An Appreciation’). Chapple first joined what became the EETPU in 1937 and he had held offices at every level in the union. After his retirement, Frank Chapple was elevated to the Lords. Frank Chapple died in 2004. So he was around well after the publication of the Waterhouse Report to ensure that the truth remained suppressed.

Baron Chapple of Hoxton:

  • BBC News | WALES | Guidelines for sex abuse inquiries

 

  • Top Nursing Schools & Application Requirements | Real ...

 

One of Chapple’s sons, Barry Chapple, was a regional official of Amicus, which succeeded the EETPU. Amicus was the UK’s second largest trade union and the largest private sector union, formed by the merger of MSF and the AEEU, agreed in 2001 and two smaller unions, UNIFI and the GPMU. MSF was the union that represented many professionals in the NHS who were not Top Doctors or Angels and MSF used their knowledge of the wrongdoing of the Top Doctors to wield a great deal of power in the NHS, but did not use their influence to stop the wrongdoing or the abuse of patients. David Hole, who served as one of the MSF reps at St George’s Hospital Medical School when I worked there, 1989-91, was along with his colleagues concealing an enormous mountain of crap including crap directly relating to the trafficking gang which was operating in south London at the time and the Westminster Paedophile Ring (see previous posts). Amicus merged with the TGWU in 2007 to become UNITE.

Lest anyone wants further evidence of the wrongdoing in Southwark with Dafydd et al, not only is Southwark on the doorstep of the Maudsley, where Dafydd ‘trained’ with other Top Doctors who were facilitating organised abuse and who protected Dafydd et al in north Wales for the rest of their careers, but Dafydd’s mate Dr Jim Birley (see post ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’) joined the Maudsley as a consultant in 1969. Birley was the Dean of the Institute of Psychiatry, 1971-82, Dean of the Royal College of Psychiatry, 1982-87 and President, 1987-90. He was President of the BMA, 1993-94.

There are plenty of accounts that suggest that Jim Birley was quite mad. He spent time working with William Sargant at Tommy’s – as did Dr Death – when Sargant was carrying out such dangerous irresponsible experiments on patients that many of them died. Jim Birley claimed to have seen miraculous recoveries as a consequence of barbarous treatments that even at the time were known not to work. Then Jim Birley had a psychotic breakdown himself but was alleged to have made a full recovery within two days, so he returned to work.

Jim Birley was one of the British psychiatrists who took Soviet psychiatry to task in the late 1980s for abusing psychiatry for political purposes. While his mate Dafydd had the victims of a paedophile gang who had dared complain illegally imprisoned in a dungeon.

Jim Birley didn’t confine himself to Top Doctoring in hospitals. He established the Windsor Walk Housing Association which was supported accommodation. At about the same time Birley established the Camberwell Rehabilitation Association, which employed patients to undertake tasks such as making fuse boxes. In 1971 Jim Birley – after meeting David Ennals – founded the Southwark Association for Mental Health.

In 1971 David Ennals was leading a major campaign for MIND and Ennals joined in the long tradition of MIND in concealing the crimes of Dafydd and the gangs associated with him (see previous posts). Ennals later became Chair of MIND and it was whilst Ennals was Chair that Tony Smythe was appointed as Chief Exec of MIND. Tony Smythe had links with paedophiles’ rights groups such as PIE. David Ennals was Secretary of State for the DHSS, 1976-79, while Dafydd and the gang ran riot in north Wales. Before he had ever met Jim Birley, Ennals had served as a junior Minister in the Home Office – whilst the Home Office was directly responsible for managing Approved Schools, such as Bryn Estyn and Axwell Park, where there were paedophile gangs in operation.

Lord David Ennals’ son Sir Paul Ennals was Chief Executive of the NCB (National Children’s Bureau). Peter Righton the social work academic who was a convicted paedophile was involved with the NCB. Paul Ennals was also a member of safeguarding Boards in Haringey, Gateshead, Sunderland and Tyneside. Which would have meant a lot of commuting. All of the locations in which Sir Paul was busy safeguarding had paedophile rings operating in the children’s services. Lord Ennals’ brother Martin Ennals was Secretary-General of Amnesty International for some years.

See previous posts for further information re David, Paul and Martin Ennals.

 

Much as I admire Peter Tatchell’s resistance in the face of the gangsters which were Bob Mellish and his mates and one can only fall about laughing at the idea that Labour big wigs believed that Tatchell was the Labour Party’s problem, Peter and his supporters fell into the usual trap of campaigning on behalf of the Top Docs, their campaign being to keep St Olave’s Hospital open, although St Olave’s closed in 1985. In the late 1960s, St Olave’s operated a Day Hospital for psychiatric patients which St Olave’s shared with Cane Hill Hospital. Cane Hill Hospital was used as a dumping ground by the Maudsley for ‘chronic’ patients who were ‘never going to get better’. Those patients will have been in a very sorry state and they will have been drugged up and abandoned. A Top Doctor will not have gone near them for months on end. In the late 1970s, virtually all the ‘services’ and patients at St Olave’s were transferred to Guy’s. In 1979, only 40 patients remained at St Olave’s and 30 of them were psychogeriatric patients, who were eventually transferred to New Cross Hospital. They too will have been abandoned by the Top Doctors.

I can understand that Peter may have felt that the psych patients of St Olave’s had so little that Peter et al were helping by keeping a shite mental health service going. After all, in the latter half of the 1990s, I argued very strongly for keeping the Day Centre in the Hergest Unit open on the grounds that at least it provided patients with a warm meeting place where they could socialise and have a cup of coffee with their friends, many Empowered Service Users being so poor and isolated that if the Day Centre shut they would not even be able to do that. Before the Day Centre died by a thousand cuts, it was a vastly preferable ‘service’ to that which was the North Wales Hospital Denbigh or the thugs of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team. After the Day Centre closed, patients died and became destitute en masse. See previous posts. However, what Peter and his supporters should really have been aiming for, while admittedly doing what they could to make patients’ lives as comfortable as they could under the circumstances, was to smash the racket that the Top Doctors were running, because that was the real problem. Those patients, along with the kids in care, were being abused and neglected, while the Top Docs stuck their noses into every trough available and dictated their own salaries. Every Gov’t Minister fell for it, even Battling Barbara Castle who was Going To Stamp Out Private Medicine. She didn’t, because the Top Docs told her to fuck off and Battling Babs didn’t dare cripple them and their rotten to the core profession. Furthermore Battling Babs ‘went private’ for fertility treatment herself because it wasn’t available on the NHS.

David Ennals and Dr Death were Ministers in the DHSS under Battling Babs.

Jeff Crowther, who for years worked as a nursing officer/manager in the mental health services in north Wales (see previous posts), was considered quite a leftie by his colleagues. Jeff loathed the Royal Family and one day I heard him telling the other Angels that the country fell for the Royals’ scams at every Royal Wedding and Royal Baby, but the Royal Family were a bunch of leeches who were bleeding the nation dry. I very much preferred Jeff to many of his colleagues, but he knew what Dafydd and the gang were doing, he admitted to me that Dafydd ‘was a corrupt old bastard’ and that he knew that Dafydd was sexually abusing patients and when I lost my temper and yelled at Jeff ‘why won’t any of you stand up to him?’, Jeff said ‘because we’ve got jobs to keep and mortgages to pay’ and walked off.

Sir Peter Morrison Jeff. One of those whom Dafydd was supplying with boys in care for sex parties. Morrison’s sister Dame Mary was Woman-of-the-Bedchamber to HM Queen Lilibet. The Duke of Westminster, one of Carlo’s closest friends, was involved in concealing Dafydd’s gang. So was Carlo himself, in his capacity as Chancellor of UCNW (Bangor University). Carlo’s mate Jimmy Savile was a visitor to Bryn Estyn, where one boy alleged Savile witnessed a gang rape of one boy. Why do you think that Di was making PR visits to AIDS wards where victims of Dafydd’s gang were dying, or to Broadmoor where victims of Dafydd’s gang were banged up and being assaulted by Savile? You knew all of this, you were not as thick as some of your colleagues and you kept quiet because you wanted a job as an Angel. You still didn’t grass the bastards up when they killed your wife and then sent a murderous thug after you.

Looks like you were taken to the cleaners as well Jeff.

Charles, Prince of Wales

 

Labour Party ‘grandees’: Do you think that basing your election strategies and indeed Gov’ts on the continued success of a gang of paedophiles in north Wales was a particularly sensible idea? I wouldn’t expect anything better to have emanated from the brain of the Windbag, but surely some of you could have worked out what was going to happen? Battle for your soul? You didn’t have one, you only had a sole, which I and the others Empowered Service Users experienced as you trod on us for decades, you thick-as-pig-shit-we’d-better-give-the-Top-Docs-everything-that-they-ask-for-because-they-know-about-George-Thomas-and-anyway-we-won’t-get-medical-care-ourselves-if-we-piss-them-off utter dipsticks.

 

For all the mouthing off by Cockney Wanker and his chums about being the Authentic Voice and Committed to the Constituents, areas like Southwark are still on their knees, so somehow Cockney Wanker’s constituents didn’t reap the rewards throughout the decades that Cockney Wanker et al laid down their lives to fight their corner in the face of the invading gay hordes in the form of Peter Tatchell and co. I note that Cockney Wanker himself ended up in the Lords. Along with Lord Chapple, Lord Owen, Lord Kinnock, Lord Mandelson and the rest of them.

As for the fate of the wider UK after Cockney Wanker had saved us from Mr Tatchell:

Ray Gunter succeeded Bob Mellish’s mate George Isaacs as Labour MP for Southwark, 1959-72. Gunter was born in Wales and had a background in the railway industry and the trade union movement – specifically his union, the Transport Salaried Staffs’ Association (TSSA). Gunter was elected as the MP for South East Essex in 1945 and was a backbencher throughout the six-year Labour Gov’t of Attlee. In the late 1940s, Gunter’s Essex seat was broken up; he was elected for Doncaster in Yorkshire in 1950. He was unseated in 1951 by the Tory Anthony Barber.

Gunter was associated with the right wing of the Labour Party and was a member of the Labour Party’s NEC, 1955-66. He was president of TSSA, 1956–64. Gunter was returned to the Commons as a TSSA-sponsored MP in 1959 and became a Shadow Cabinet member.

After Labour won the 1964 General Election, Harold Wilson made Gunter Minister of Labour. The dilemma Gunter faced was his trade unionist’s natural view that trade unions should be able to negotiate responsible pay rates for their members through “free collective bargaining” but on the other hand the wildcat strikes in some parts of British industry were often seen as damaging to the economy, and “wage restraint” was the alternative. Soon after Labour’s 1966 General Election victory, the seamans’ strike saw this conflict came to a head. Gunter took the same tough line as Harold Wilson. He would later describe his stint as Minister of Labour as a “bed of nails”. Gunter sought to complete his work by bringing in a new bill drawn from the findings of the Donovan Commission Report on trade union power, but Wilson reshuffled him to Minister of Power in April 1968. Gunter was rumoured to have been linked with negative leaks from Cabinet and resigned from Gov’t on 1 July 1968, stating he could no longer work in a Wilson Gov’t. Gunter’s successor in labour affairs, Barbara Castle, saw her proposals to reduce trade union powers in her 1969 White Paper, ‘In Place Of Strife’ fail in the teeth of concerted trade union opposition. Gunter resigned from Parliament in 1972.

Gunter died in 1977 and was buried on the Isles of Scilly, where for many years – like Harold Wilson – he had a house, located in Launceston Close, Old Town and called Y Bwythen Bach. Gunter’s name lives on in a block of sheltered flats for the elderly built by Southwark Council in Walworth; not that Gunter found himself spending his twilight years in that block of flats.

Ray Gunter was succeeded in his Southwark seat by Harry Lamborn. Lamborn was born in London and also had a background in the union movement, specifically his union USDAW, local government and the London Co-operative movement.

Lamborn was a member of Camberwell Borough Council, 1953-65 and was Mayor in 1963/4. He represented the Dulwich constituency on the London County Council, 1958-65. Lamborn was elected to the successor body, the GLC, in 1964 for the constituency of Southwark and was re-elected in 1967 and 1970. Lamborn was Deputy Chairman of the GLC, 1971/2.

Harry Lamborn was elected for Southwark a by-election in May 1972 and after his constituency was eliminated in boundary changes, he ran in the newly configured Peckham. He was comfortably re-elected in the Feb 1974 General Election and was PPS to Denis Healey, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, 1974-79. Throughout it all, kids in care from Lamborn’s constituency were sent into the arms of Dafydd and the paedophiles.

Lamborn was comfortably re-elected in the Tory landslide of 1979, but with a reduced majority. He died in August 1982 and was succeeded in the Peckham constituency by Harriet Harman, a star of many previous posts on this blog. Harriet did and said nothing either about the kids from her constituency who had been and continued to be sent to children’s homes in north Wales where they were abused either, but then Harriet’s dad John Harman was a Top Doctor who was mates with many of those facilitating and colluding with Dafydd’s gang.

Harry Lamborn’s name too lives on in a block of sheltered flats for the elderly built by Southwark Council, on Gervase Street off the Old Kent Road in Peckham. Will Harriet too be immortalised in the name of a block of old people’s flats? Well Jane Hutt’s mate Val Feld who did more than most wimmin in Wales – except for Jane Hutt herself, Julie Morgan, Lesley Griffiths and Edwina Hart of course – to collude with Dafydd’s gang is remembered by a plaque on the wall of the Senedd (see previous posts)…

 

While reading about Southwark, I noticed something odd. Susan Elan Jones was a Councillor in the London Borough of Southwark, 2006-09 and was Deputy Leader of the Opposition on that Council, 2007-09. Susan Elan Jones is currently the Labour MP for Clwyd South, after being elected in the 2010 General Election, succeeding the paedophiles’ friend Martyn Jones (see previous posts). Susan Elan Jones is rather hopeless and invisible as an MP, but she has done a bit of screaming in the direction of the two old Trots who currently lead the Labour Party. Susan was one of those who resigned from Jezza’s Shadow Cabinet in June 2016, denouncing Jezza as unelectable and calling on him to stand down.

Part of Susan’s statement read: ‘When I was re-elected as MP for Clwyd South in May 2015, I made a plea that we should never forget those in our society who are less fortunate…although I shall no longer be a Shadow Minister, I will of course continue to be totally committed to my work in Parliament and my constituency, as well as to the Party of which I have been a member for nearly 31 years’.

Well Susan, some years ago this lot were on the doorstep of your constituency and as someone who grew up near Wrexham during the 1970s and 80s, you’ll know that a lot of people are still living with the consequences, so I’m wondering when you’re going to remember those who really were a great deal less fortunate than you were:

 

 

 

 

The milking of the notion of Violent NHS Patients continues. I’ve been too busy to read all the news stories properly today, but I see that The Torygraph is leading with a report that two patients died in a clinical trial at UCL and it was covered up (this will not be the first time that has happened) and other reports tell us that the NHS ‘needs more’, the billions and billions extra that they have been promised is still not enough.

Of course the ‘Today’ programme this morning also led with an NHS story; it is that hoary old chestnut Angels Are Being Attacked By Patients. This one is a favourite as any fule kno and it usually accompanies demands for more dosh. The strategy has a long and glorious history as well; my post ‘A Very COHSE Relationship With Some Very Nasty People’ used info from a PhD thesis that mapped the scare stories featuring Dangerous Mental Patients with pay claims from asylum attendants in the first half of the 20th century, although there was plenty of evidence to suggest that it was the patients who were usually on the receiving end of neglect and brutality. Matthew Hancock the Health Secretary has stated that the first NHS strategy to tackle Violence Against Staff is being launched.

That’s funny Matthew because I clearly remember that happening some years ago. The reason why I remember it so clearly was that I was one of the Violent Patients whom Keith Thomson, the CEO of the NW Wales NHS Trust, proudly told the local press about; one woman had been banned from all NHS premises by the use of a restraining order, it was in all the north Wales papers! That woman was me and I later discovered that the restraining order was legally invalid. It was issued by the corrupt judge Huw Daniel on the day that a court case collapsed against me because at least eight NHS staff were found to have lied to the police. One of those who lied was an occupational therapy student called Mike, who admitted to his line manager that he had been forced to make a statement about me after I rang him up for help and advice, having been banned from all NHS premises by the legally invalid restraining order… The original prosecution was mounted against me for ‘threatening to kill’ Alun Davies (the mental health services manager) after I made a complaint that an Angel and four healthcare assistants had assaulted and injured me. Alun Davies was sitting in the National Assembly with Jane Hutt and her officials when he repeatedly rang the police maintaining that he was terrified and that I presented a very real risk to him. As I sat, injured, in a locked ward at the other end of Wales…

So where was the prosecution of Alun Davies, at least six NHS workers including the Nurse Manager of the Hergest Unit Lena Henry and at least one police officer for perjury and conspiracy then??? Oh, there wasn’t one.

At the same time that Keith Thomson told the local papers about the Violent Patient who had been banned from all NHS premises, the RCN rep for Ysbyty Gwynedd provided the same newspapers with figures for the numerous ‘assaults’ on NHS workers at Ysbyty Gwynedd which I knew to be grossly exaggerated. The RCN rep knew the reality as well, because he was Gareth Phillips, who until he had health problems and was signed off work sick, was employed as an Angel at the Hergest Unit. Gareth’s wife Penny had also worked as an Angel at the Hergest Unit for years. Gareth wangled that job as a RCN rep by keeping schtum about the abuse of patients. Gareth was Jeff Crowther’s closest friend and they used to spend their weekends and holidays off in the summer going to festivals where they would indulge, in their own words, in a ‘drugs binge’.

Why were the former kids in care from north Wales who alleged that they had been abused by staff told by Ronnie Waterhouse and everyone else that they couldn’t be believed? Because they had drug problems and were thought to be after compensation. An Angel who regularly indulges in recreational chemicals, is looking at the end of their career and still wants a good salary? Come this way sir, we have a job as an RCN rep if you agree to keep your mouth shut and tell lies to the media when we fit up one of the witnesses to Dafydd’s trafficking gang.

By the time that I was acquitted of ‘threats to kill’ I’d nearly finished a PhD. After I had the temerity to get my PhD, a campaign of harassment was unleashed upon certain people in Bangor University, including my PhD supervisor and his wife, a number of my friends and even the Vice-Chancellor. See previous posts. Alun Davies subsequently began frequenting the University, a place where he had never previously set foot. Not only that, but Davies began turning up in the Students’ Union building when I was in there. Davies was frequenting Bangor University on the pretext of asking students to volunteer for charidee work. Some students had been volunteering at the Hergest Unit, a lovely bunch who volunteered with a group set up by the Hergest whistleblower. Alun Davies ordered that the group should be disbanded because the students Weren’t Qualified. No, but they all had an interest in entering the mental health professions and furthermore they noticed that Hergest patients were being abused and neglected. That was when Davies noticed that they Weren’t Qualified.

Students of Bangor University: as people who had passed A levels, you were ALL More Qualified than Alun Davies, who had NO qualifications. Davies began his career as the lowliest grade of NHS clerk in south Wales and rose to the top on the basis of his frank corruption. Davies came from the Rhondda, which was the domain of George Thomas and on the doorstep of the Windbag. Geddit???

Here’s Baroness Windbag, who’s mum and dad gave her boyfriend the Windbag a helping hand with his political career by introducing him to their mate Lord Cledwyn, the Labour MP for Anglesey, 1951-79, who was mates with Jim Callaghan and concealed the molesting ways of George Thomas, who served as a Welsh Officer Minister under Secretary of State Cledwyn and succeeded Cledwyn as Secretary of State for Wales. See posts ‘The Cradle Of Filth’ and ‘How Much Greater Is A Man Than A Sheep?’.

Between 1974 and 96, Gwynedd County Council managed children’s homes on Anglesey, including one in Holyhead, where kids were abused by Dafydd’s gang. This was the Chancellor of UCNW throughout the decades when that institution was run by Dafydd and the gang:

Charles, Prince of Wales

 

Glenys and Neil: After I graduated, Dr D.G.E. Wood and your mate Tony Francis hurled at and insulted me and told me to get out of North Wales. When I didn’t, they hurled at me a bit more. When I did eventually leave north Wales and go to work in London, their mates down there hurled at and insulted me and told me to got back to north Wales. Could you ask Carlo where exactly he wants me to live, because there seemed to be a lot of indecision. Perhaps Carlo could provide me with a cottage on the Duchy’s estate, like he did for Peter Ball, the molesting Bishop?

The Gov’ts latest drive against Violent NHS Patients – believe me, there’s been quite a few now, all labelled as the first drive against Violent Patients – has been given a boost by legislation which will Double The Sentences of Violent Patients. The legislation was proposed by Chris Bryant, the Labour MP for the Rhondda. Bryant is a former vicar who some years ago appeared on Gaydar clad only in a rather sad pair of undies, accompanied by a message asking ‘Oi mate, do you want a fuck?’ I do not know how many offers the Rev Bryant received, but if he’d peddled his bottom in the vicinity of Gwynne, Dafydd and the gang in north Wales in the 1980s, he’d have had plenty of takers. When Thatch was destroying the Rhondda in the 1980s, Chris was a fresh faced Oxford grad who was a staunch supporter and member of the Tory Party (see previous posts). I really do think that someone ought to tell his constituents.

One of the tabloids today – I think it was ‘The Sun’ – reported that Cops believe that there may be ‘another two Saviles’ at large ie. celebs who are serially sexually assaulting kids. I would have thought that the world would now be a little suspicious of elderly men who wear nothing but a pair of gold lame shorts and ask 4 yr olds if they’ll be his girlfriend when they are invited to ‘glittering balls’ arranged by the NHS to raise money, but no, the Top Docs don’t learn, as they have learned nothing with regard to De-escalation Techniques When Faced With Violent Patients. Vanity, money and the desire for a gong will win the day every time.

 

Bizarre plan to give Savile a new title to strip his ...

 

BBC News Wales reported today that the Royal College of Psychiatrists has employed a Poet in Residence no less. It is the brother of one of the Manic Street Preachers. I imagine that the Royal College of Psychiatrists will manage to kill anyone’s enjoyment of poetry stone dead. The Manic Street Preachers did of course star Richie Edwards, who disappeared many years ago. Richie was very able but had been distressed for years; he was a serious self-harmer and I really don’t think that the Top Docs did him much good…

 

As it is Halloween, here’s some pictures of the ghosts that haunt north Wales:
