Hwyl Fawr Carwyn, Croeso Drakeford!

Today is Carwyn’s last day as Wales’s FM, as BBC News Wales Online is currently reminding us.

Carwyn Jones

So here’s a post to pay tribute to Carwyn, FM of Wales, 2009-18 and welcome his successor who takes office as FM tomorrow, Mark Drakeford.

Carwyn’s time as FM saw many high points, but his finest hour was of course the suicide of Carl Sargeant, the Labour AM for Alyn and Deeside and Cabinet Secretary for Communities and Children in Nov 2017. Carl hung himself after being suspended from the Welsh Labour Party and his job by Carwyn in the wake of allegations of sexual misconduct, the details of which Carl was never given.

Carl Sargeant

The allegations were traced to some Welsh Labour wimmin spin doctors, at least one of whom has been responsible for concealing the barrel of shit that is the sex abuse gang who have run the NHS and social services in Wales for many years. Even after all these months, no-one is sure who alleged what against Carl and how much evidence there was for the allegations. Carl remains dead and his son Jack has succeeded Carl’s seat in the Senedd.

Until Carl hung himself, no-one imagined that Carwyn’s tenure could have been blighted with anything worse than the 2013 Tawel Fan Scandal, the biggest scandal involving the abuse of mental health patients that the UK has ever experienced. Tawel Fan was a truly dreadful EMI ward in the deeply troubled Ablett Unit at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd. Before Tawel Fan broke, the Ablett Unit had already distinguished itself by employing a healthcare assistant who sexually abused a female patient and in his defence stated that she was a ‘time waster’ who ‘wasn’t really ill’, being someone with a ‘personality disorder’. A female patient from the Ablett Unit was murdered by another Ablett patient whom she had met in the Ablett and begun a relationship with; no member of Ablett staff had told her that he had a history of extreme violence towards his female partners. Then a Bulgarian man who was completely psychotic was discharged from the Ablett Unit, homeless and with no aftercare, only to travel to Tenerife and chop the head off of an English tourist. While in the Ablett Unit the Angels had documented that their patient was ‘talking gibberish’ ie. Bulgarian and a Top Doctor had stated that he was feigning mental illness in order to use the hospital to secure accommodation, being homeless, so they kicked him out.

Throughout these events, serious complaints made by other patients about the appalling care and conditions at the Ablett were ignored; at least one of those complaints involved one of the Top Doctors responsible for the care of the Bulgarian decapitator. Top Doctors at the Ablett Unit were used as second opinions by their mates from the Hergest Unit at Ysbyty Gwynedd, when patients at the Hergest had been neglected and abused so badly that they asked to be transferred to another Top Doctor. The second opinions from the Ablett inevitably backed up their mates from the Hergest. Meanwhile, patients at the Hergest were violently assaulted and found dead, including on the ward.

Then came Tawel Fan. After numerous complaints from patients’ relatives were ignored, an Angel raised concerns when she saw one of her male Angel colleagues kicking a patient. She was ignored. So this Angel made an undercover recording of patients crawling around on floors covered with urine and faeces, while her charming colleagues swore at them and chatted about their sex lives. One patient had an untreated broken arm. The Angel gave the undercover film to the relative of a patient who’s complaints had been repeatedly ignored. They took it to the press and the scandal erupted. The Angel was sacked and later struck off by the NMC. Tawel Fan was shut down and the police were called in to investigate. A number of patients were in such poor condition that they died soon after the ward was closed. No Angels were charged or disciplined and a group of them gave an interview to ‘The Daily Post’ stating that the care in Tawel Fan was ‘excellent’ and that the relatives who complained were ‘trouble makers’.

Relatives of the Tawel Fan patients spoke of being treated with rudeness and disrespect by both Carwyn and the Health Minister at the time, Mark Drakeford.

While patients continued to die in the Hergest Unit, there were deaths of patients in another other psych unit in north Wales, the Heddfan Unit at Wrexham Maelor Hospital, including that of one patient, a policeman, who managed to hang himself on the ward.

Some months after the Tawel Fan Scandal, the Bryn Hesketh Scandal hit the media after elderly patients were abused at the Bryn Hesketh Unit in Colwyn Bay. Some of the staff involved were those who had abused patients in Tawel Fan. Once more, no charges were brought and no staff faced disciplinary action.

Psych patients were not the only people in north Wales to suffer. The maternity service at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd was so dangerous and so many babies died that an outside ‘hit squad’ was called in and stated that the problems were so great that their first task would be ‘establishing normality’. No staff were disciplined, despite an admission that one Top Doctor was such an abusive bully that he was a danger to patients.

Then there was the outbreak of C. difficile in the hospitals in north Wales; the bogs on the wards which were overflowing with turds, urine and blood and left in that state for weeks; the cases of food poisoning suffered by patients which were not even documented; the police investigation into fraud and embezzlement by the managers of Ysbty Glan Clwyd…

There was much more as well, but there is not the scope in this tribute to detail it all.

Some of these events took place when Professor Merfyn Jones was Chairman of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board. Merfyn’s wiki entry currently states that he was appointed Chairman in 2013; that is wrong, he was appointed in 2011. Merfyn had previously served as a Board member and was horrified at the problems which were simply being ignored or concealed. So when Merfyn became Chairman of the Betsi, he tried to address those problems, which included mounting a prosecution against an Angel who impersonated a police officer and threw an old lady in her 80s across the ward, injuring her. This Angel had some years previously unlawfully refused to treat a patient and threatened her with physical violence, but no action was taken against him. The Top Docs, managers and Angels were so outraged at Merfyn responding to patient complaints and launching investigations into staff misconduct that they organised across the Health Board, conspired to withold information from the Board and allowed patients to die, to force Merfyn’s resignation in 2013 under a huge cloud and ensure that he did not return to public life.

The person who wrote one of the critical ‘independent’ reports about Merfyn was Dr Peter Higson, who was then appointed as Chairman of the Betsi himself. During Higson’s time as Chairman, the suicide and mortality rates rose even higher, litigation against the Health Board soared and a recruitment crisis occurred because staff simply wouldn’t take jobs in the NHS in north Wales.

Meanwhile in other regions of Wales, NHS staff with criminal convictions were employed, patients died of neglect in hospitals and while waiting for ambulances to arrive, ambulances which sometimes didn’t ever arrive even after the patient had died. A healthcare assistant was jailed for the rape of a disabled woman after complaints about him sexually abusing patients were ignored; one of his parents was a senior manager of the NHS Health Board which had employed him.

While Carwyn has been FM there has been scandal after scandal of residents in care homes being abused or neglected, sometimes resulting in their deaths. The case of one chain of care homes owned by a Top Doctor in south Wales was used as an example in a healthcare conference in England of extreme elder abuse which had been known about and ignored for years.

Disabled residents in receipt of community care in Wales often found that the carer who was given an hour in which to get them out of bed, washed, dressed and given breakfast simply didn’t turn up, so they remained in bed until the lunch-time carer turned up or, because they sometimes didn’t turn up either, the disabled person stayed in bed until the evening carer arrived to put them to bed.

 

The health and social care system is not the only part of Wales’s infrastructure which has thrived under Carwyn. There has been a constant problem with endemic police corruption. It is bad in south Wales but even worse in north Wales. On Carwyn’s watch, two police officers in north Wales were charged with assault and conspiring to pervert the course of justice. They were cleared. One of them had previously worked as a healthcare assistant on the psych wards in Ysbyty Gwynedd. The North Wales Police consistently refused to investigate complaints made by psych patients of staff abusing them.

Policing is not a devolved responsibility, so Carwyn does not have domain over the police. However, a few weeks ago, the former Chief Constable of North Wales was appointed as the new Chairman of the Betsi Board and the NHS is a devolved responsibility.

  • Q&A with North Wales Chief Constable Mark Polin - Daily Post

 

Throughout Carwyn’s time as FM, there have been scandals involving local authority corruption across north Wales. Dear old Anglesey County Council leads the field in this regard, one of the Councillors went to prison while Carwyn was FM; I think it was the same Councillor who went to prison years ago, before Carwyn was FM.

Wales’s universities have excelled under Carwyn’s leadership too. As well as the rampant grade inflation and plagiarism which is de rigueur in HE post-Blair, Swansea University has been beset by scandal after scandal and in the last couple of weeks the VC has been suspended. There have also been public scandals at senior management level at Aberystwyth University, Glyndwr University and Cardiff Met University.

Wales’s schools are not what they should be. Pupils from professional families often perform very well and achieve impressively in the state schools and it is pupils like this to which Wales always points as evidence of how excellent and equitable its schools are. Yet pupils in the same schools from more disadvantaged backgrounds often have dreadful experiences and outcomes, which are ignored. SEN pupils fare so badly that huge numbers of parents scrimp and save to pay for private provision. When I attended The Night With A Thousand Stars some eight years ago in Llandudno at which Carwyn was the keynote speaker, in his speech Carwyn expressed his deep concern at the standards in Welsh schools.

 

My mates always laugh at me because I do try to be fair to people, even those who have mistreated me or taken me for a ride. I continue to do my best to be even-handed because I have spent my whole life watching people lie, deceive and shoulder the blame for their own wrongdoing onto other less guilty or entirely innocent people and it is in those circumstances that serious endemic corruption thrives. So I’m going to be fair to Carwyn as well.

Carwyn knew just how bloody terrible things were in the troubled little nation of which he became FM in 2009, because he was Counsel General for Wales, 2007-09, when the most dreadful things were happening in the NHS, Social Services and elsewhere. Carwyn knew that he had a Senedd full of former social workers and County Councillors who had been complicit with the most appalling corruption and criminality and it was from that collection of deadbeats that he had to appoint his Cabinet.

After Carwyn became FM, he was told that I had been threatened by a policeman with a gun and was living in terror after I had called in lawyers in an attempt to deal with the harassment and threats to which people in the NHS, Social Services and County Councils in north Wales were subjecting me. Soon after this, Carwyn appointed Theo Huckle QC as Counsel General for Wales, knowing that my lawyer would be making a claim against the NHS for damages. See post ‘Theo Huckle QC’. Theo was given copies of the 10,000 documents that I now have in my possession detailing serious organised crime in every agency with which I had contact, going back as far as 1984. The NW Wales NHS Trust admitted ‘serious failures’ and ‘complete failure to provide care’. Theo asked my lawyers if I would agree to see Dr Adrianne Reveley for an independent assessment. I have now found out that Reveley was yet another dishonest Top Doctor who knew the people that my lawyer was making representation against (see post ‘Dr Adrianne Reveley – A Loving Tribute’).

After seeing Reveley, I was violently attacked by the daughter of a local barrister in public and when I went to the police to report the assault – I had been injured and was bleeding – I was sectioned and detained in Wrexham Maelor Hospital. My injuries were not documented or treated. I had been in Wrexham Maelor for 24 hours or so when the ward manager told me that the documentation completed by the Top Doctor et al at Aberystwyth Police Station who sectioned me (see previous posts) had not been signed and I had therefore been detained unlawfully, so I was free to leave. So I did.

Wrexham Maelor then reported me missing to the the police, placed notices in the local papers, launched a man hunt and I was sectioned again on the basis of the lies of a social worker in Scotland, where I was on holiday. I ended up sectioned on various psych wards for the best part of a year, during which time I was assaulted by Angels and witnessed the law broken repeatedly. During that time, I received a letter telling me that the Welsh Gov’t legal service denied all allegations of medical negligence. I then received a letter from my lawyers, Walker Smith Way of Chester and Wrexham, telling me that the lawyer who had been handling my case had left the practice and that if I wanted them to continue with my case, would I please pay the £10,000 which they claimed that I owed them that they had never mentioned to me before. If I chose to drop my case Walker Smith Way would forget about the money. Should I wish to take up my case with another lawyer and have the documentation transferred, Walker Smith Way would want their £10k. I sent Walker Smith Way an e mail telling them that I was now homeless and jobless, detained in a psych hospital, I did not have £10k to give them and obviously I could not continue with my case. Walker Smith Way e mailed me back thanking me for paying the £10k. I heard no more. Walker Smith Way have now been taken over by Slater Gordon. I have recently been told that Rachel Vasmer, the lawyer who walked away after guns were waved at me as well as at a man who made a witness statement, is now employed as a Tribunal judge in Shropshire.

It’s called serious organised crime and it all stems from the Westminster Paedophile Ring, which had its basis in north Wales during the 1970s, 80s and 90s and was facilitated principally by the NHS, the Social Services, the North Wales Police and the legal profession. The people responsible are still running the public services in north Wales. One of those people was Peter Higson.

I don’t blame Carwyn for all of this, he inherited a huge problem. He just completely failed to address any part of it, but that was probably because he didn’t want to be found dead. Carwyn is actually far too young to be held substantially responsible for the atrocious mess, no matter how little he has done to resolve it.

There are two people however who entered Welsh politics so long ago that they can be held responsible for what happened and continues to happen, indeed they were friends with those who ran the Westminster Paedophile Ring:

Rhodri and Julie are good friends with Jane Hutt, the Labour AM for the Vale of Glamorgan. Jane is a former social worker and County Councillor.

The Baroness of Ely, the Labour AM for Mid and West Wales, is a good friend of the Windbags.

Eluned Morgan AM (28136582086).jpg

The Baroness’s dad was a social worker, clergyman and a County Councillor of the same generation as the Windbags. The Rev Bob entered local politics at the suggestion of one of his churchwardens, who was Chairman of the Cardiff West Constituency Labour Party. The constituency Labour MP was at the time George Thomas, the child molester. The Windbag, his wife his wife’s parents and the churchwarden of the Rev Bob’s church were among the many people who concealed the sex offending of George Thomas.

 

Wales’s Health Ministers during Carwyn’s time as FM were Edwina Hart, Labour AM for the Gower, Lesley Griffiths, Labour AM for Wrexham and Mark Drakeford, Labour AM for Cardiff West. Edwina was appointed as Health Minister by Rhodri, but remained in post for a while after Carwyn succeeded Rhodri as FM. Edwina received sufficient evidence from me to have had a number of senior managers and NHS staff in north Wales arrested and charged. Edwina did correspond with me and I believed that she was trying to deal with some very difficult matters. What I didn’t realise was that when those we know and love failed to stop their criminal activities, Edwina then did a back room deal and colluded with them because she was running for FM herself and didn’t want the barrel of crap exploding on her watch. Edwina and her husband had both previously served as Chairs of TUC Wales, in which capacity they had concealed criminality in the health and welfare services. Edwina was appointed Minister for Business after her stint as Minister for Health and Social Services and while in that role she gave out a business support grant to a man on Anglesey in return for him having sex with her. Edwina was a Director of Chwarae Teg, a Wimmin’s ‘economic development’ charidee which was founded by Jane Hutt.

Lesley Griffiths is a former County Councillor who worked as a medical secretary in Wrexham Maelor for 20 years (see post ‘History Repeats Itself, First As Tragedy, Second As Farce’).

Mark Drakeford is a former social worker and County Councillor, who’s adult son is currently serving an eight year prison sentence for rape. Mark Drakeford is a feminist and has already announced that he will have a 50:50 gender balanced Cabinet.

 

Jane Hutt, Labour AM for the Vale of Glamorgan, served as Health Minister while Rhodri was FM.

BBC News Wales Online reported the tributes paid to Carwyn by Wales’s other esteemed AMs. Huw Irranca-Davies, the Labour AM for Ogmore, was reported as saying of Carwyn’s legacy that it was “A more muscular government, a more outspoken government. If you look at the major reforms around curriculum development in Wales, so we not only have the highest standards of education attainment but well rounded individuals who come out of our education system, if you look at reforms in health and social care even in challenging times we are leading the UK in trying to develop a system that is seamless health and social care.”

Huw Irranca-Davies also believes that he is Wales’s ‘sexiest man’. Or it might be ‘sexiest politician’. Er, is there much competition Huw??

Jane Hutt AM (28136581466).jpg

 

Huw Irranca-Davies
Huw Irranca-Davies AM (27555058384).jpg

When Huw was a boy, he campaigned for his step-uncle, Ifor Davies, the Labour MP for the Gower. Uncle Ifor was Deputy to Cledwyn Hughes when Lord Cledwyn was Secretary of State for Wales in Harold Wilson’s Gov’t. Lord Cledwyn concealed the child molesting of George Thomas who was a Minister in the Welsh Office along with Uncle Ifor. Lord Cledwyn was the MP for Anglesey and a friend of the Windbags.

 

In her tribute to Carwyn’s legacy, Jane Hutt stated that the referendum giving the Assembly more law making powers was a “major achievement”, “because it led to us being able to take through pioneering legislation like the organ donation human transplantation act”. In the way that Wales was proud of being the first country in the world to appoint a Children’s Commissioner after the massive cover-up into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal which was the Waterhouse Inquiry, Wales now cannot stop patting itself on the back for being the first nation in the UK to pass legislation stating that everyone is considered to have given permission for their organs to be donated unless they have specifically opted-out. So if you live in Wales, your body belongs to the state. There was no discussion of the citizenship implications of this legislation, just a lot of lies and made-up statistics regarding how many lives it would save. The legislation was forced through by Health Minister Edwina Hart, who was ignoring the deaths of patients as a result of neglect and abuse in the NHS, as well as the threats being made to me and the unlawful denial of NHS treatment for me.

A recent letter published in ‘The Daily Post’ by Michael Joyce from Gwynedd – Mr Joyce is a concerned citizen who has been on the ball with regard to the NHS in Wales for some years now – made the point that stroke care in Wales is so bad that more patients in Wales die from stroke than in many other countries. Mr Joyce also observed that most organs for transplant in Wales come from stroke patients.

Michael Joyce is not on the Grassy Knoll, he is an intelligent man who reads all reports, inspections, reviews etc relating to the NHS and regularly writes to ‘The Daily Post’ commenting on the living nightmare that is the NHS in Wales. His observations are never remarked upon by anyone in the Senedd.

 

So tomorrow Mark Drakeford will succeed Carwyn as FM. The Mark who worked as a social worker for Dyfed Social Services when a paedophile ring operated within Dyfed Social Services, the Mark who worked as a social worker in Ely when there was abuse of young people in Ely, the Mark who was a probation officer when the Probation Service colluded with the abuse of children and vulnerable people. The Mark who was a good friend of Rhodri Morgan, was Morgan’s SPAD throughout Morgan’s entire time as FM, the Mark who then succeeded Rhodri’s seat – Cardiff West, the molester George Thomas’s old stomping ground – and was Health Minister when the conspiracy against Merfyn to precipitate patient deaths and blame Merfyn was hatched.

Things are now going to unravel in Wales at a rate of knots never seen before, but Mark and the Top Doctors will continue to tell the people of Wales that everything is excellent, that their own appalling experience of the NHS was just a matter of them ‘slipping through the net’ and that if there is a problem, it is the fault of Tory Cuts. People in Wales will obediently lobby for Increased Funding For The NHS and More Pay For Top Doctors. It is not the fault of the general public; they have no idea of how endemically corrupt the political and professional class in Wales is as well as in the wider UK and they have no idea that the en masse child abuse which is beginning to become very public was facilitated by Top Doctors and that virtually all of them were complicit. The Baroness of Ely is married to a Top Doctor. I know exactly what Mark and his mates did, because I lived through it and it was my friends who died.

The orchestra on the Titanic continued to play, even as the ship was sinking and they knew that most of the passengers were going to drown because there weren’t enough lifeboats. The lifeboats that were on the ship were prioritised for first class passengers.

Mark and his friends celebrated when he won the Welsh Labour leadership. The knees -up was probably at the St David’s Hotel in Cardiff Bay, the preferred hang out of politicians and celebs. It is very nice in the St David’s Hotel but so expensive that most people in Wales can’t afford to stay there, even for one night.

Meanwhile, back at HQ at Westminster, several prominent Welsh Labour politicians have urged Jezza to table a vote of no confidence in Theresa May’s Gov’t, follows the decision to defer a vote on Brexit on Monday. MPs Chris Bryant and Owen Smith are among the 40 signatories to the letter to Jezza, along with Lord Hain. However, the wider Labour Party rejected calls to table a vote of no confidence in Mrs May, with Labour officials arguing it had more chance of success when the Brexit deal came back before MPs.

The husband of the PM of Denmark has said that the UK Gov’t has ‘lost its authority’. Of which his father the Windbag showed so much while he led the Labour Party for all those years when Dafydd and the gang procured children for Thatcher’s friend and Minister Sir Peter Morrison and others to use for sex while the Windbag, his wife and his wife’s family and extended network all concealed what was going on. So worrying were the accounts of the abuse of children in one of the children’s homes run by Gwynedd County Council on Anglesey in the 1980s, that Ioan Bowen Rees, the Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council, called in a team from another County Council’s Social Services to reassure everyone that all was well. Dyfed County Council’s Social Services to be precise, the employers of Mark Drakeford. Ioan Bowen Rees had previously been the County Secretary and Solicitor of Dyfed County Council. Prior to taking up the appointment in Dyfed, Ioan had been employed as a local authority solicitor in Cardiff. Dr Tony Francis, one of the Top Docs facilitating the abuse ring, knew the Windbag from their days as students in Cardiff.

Windbag Minor. He’s after your job Jezza. Because as any fule kno, He’s Worth It.

Because You’re Worth It

The Story Behind the Legendary Phrase

Because I’m Worth It. These four words are bound to the time of their creation and yet they have proven to be timeless. They have become what the brand stands for.

Written in 1973 when a social revolution and a new spirit of feminism was in full swing, it seems clear that the phrase could only have been written by a woman. Ilon Specht was a copywriter with McCann Erickson back in 1973. She was thought of as original, unconventional, creative and independent. Fortunately, she worked on the L’Oréal account! Specht was just 23 years old when she broke new ground with an ad that was strictly from a woman’s point of view. It famously ended with the signature phrase: Because I’m Worth It!

Almost the minute the ad hit, it became clear that the last line – those four words – had struck a chord. For the first time, the message was all about what the woman thought. It was about her self-confidence, her decision, her style.

Over time, “Because I’m Worth It” has become part of our social fabric. So much so that it was the subject of a 1999 New Yorker article entitled True Colors by Malcolm Gladwell. In it, Gladwell acknowledged: “…”Because I’m Worth It®” has entered the language…and taken on a meaning well outside the stated intention.”

Because I’m Worth It was on message in 1973, and today we know that an astonishing 80% of women recognize and respond to this positive phrase and powerful sentiment. And what makes it truly beautiful is that “Because I’m Worth It” is translated into action every day by L’Oréal Paris – in its philanthropy, its products, and its thoughtful celebration of women.

 In 1973, Ioan Bowen Rees was appointed the County Secretary and Solicitor of the newly created Dyfed County Council.

The Paedophiles’ Friends Of Cardiff North

I am reading Rhodri Morgan’s 2017 memoir at the moment, ‘Rhodri, A Political Life In Wales And Westminster’ – and what a mine of info it is with regard to the incestuous cesspit of nepotism and corruption that is the south Wales Labour Party. I had always heard rumours about this, but I’ve seen corruption and nepotism at work in so many domains that I took the view that the south Wales Labour Party was probably no worse than many other fields. It might not be, but from Rhodri’s account alone there is – or was – quite enough to make the uninitiated stand back, draw breath and exclaim ‘so THAT was how the drunken meathead Rhodri/Neil/Ron (one can insert a number of possible names in here) ended up as an MP’. I will be using Rhodri’s rich seam of ore for a series of blogs posts soon, but I was so struck by a few pieces of information about those who have represented the seat of Cardiff North that I thought I’d write this post whilst I work on a few others that I have in the pipeline.

The constituency of Cardiff North seems to have had a long and glorious tradition of being represented by paedophiles’ friends. It is as obvious as the same tradition prevailing in Ynys Mon (Anglesey), Denbigh or Conwy. The essential ingredient to bring about such a situation is that the constituency must be a marginal/swing seat, but it is also crucial that the constituency must contain a good number of people who earn their living by being paedophiles’ friends themselves, rather than being victims or potential victims of the paedophiles’ friends. I know a bit about Ynys Mon, Conwy and Denbigh, but I know nuzzing about Cardiff North, so I’ve just looked it up.

The constituency was created in 1950 and the covers the residential quarter of Cardiff – over half of northern Cardiff consists of owner-occupied housing, with higher numbers of members of the middle class population than other areas. Historically the constituency has mainly elected Conservative MPs, but with new housing development Welsh Labour has over-turned the nominal majority more recently, turning the seat into a national target swing-constituency. From 1950 until 1983, the constituency included Cardiff City Centre, but since 1983 that has been part of Cardiff Central. At present the constituency includes the wards of Heath, Llandaff North, Rhiwbina and Whitchurch. One thing that I do know about some of these places are that they are popular residential areas with Top Doctors and their associates…

So let us look at the people who have been elected as MPs for Cardiff North.

The first person who held the seat between 1950-59 was a Conservative, Sir David Treharne Llewellyn. He served under Winston Churchill as a junior Minister for the Home Dept, 1951-52. Llewellyn was the third son of the Welsh industrialist Sir David Lewellyn, 1st Baronet. Sir Rhys and Sir Harry Llewellyn were his elder brothers.

Sir Harry Llewellyn and his horse Foxhunter achieved fame in show jumping circles, but Sir Harry also achieved fame for producing two notorious sons, Dai and Roddy. Dai was a deluded old bugger who lived beyond his means because he thought that paying for your goods was just a thing that Little People did. At one point he was living in a terrace in south Wales which he described as his ‘country seat’. Dai was very offensive about his neighbours who had a good laugh at his expense when it became public knowledge that this snobbish old git was claiming benefits. Roddy was of course Princess Margaret’s toyboy and spent many enjoyable years hippying around on Mustique with her, whilst Margaret wafted around in a kaftan like some sort of parody of Elizabeth Taylor. So high was public feeling regarding Princess Margaret and Roddy in the late 1970s that the Royal Family became quite worried about the damage to their image that Margaret and Roddy were inflicting, particularly when it became clear that some of the Mustique crowd with whom they were hanging out enjoyed recreational chemicals to excess. The most notorious of the bunch, Charlie Tennant, was a heroin addict who died in 1996 as a result of hepatitis C which he contracted from a dirty needle. Margaret’s husband Lord Snowdon’s adventures and links with paedophiles’ friends in north Wales were even more interesting but never made the press. For further details, see posts ‘Little Things Hitting Each Other’ and ’95 Glorious Years’.

It was the excesses of Margaret, Roddy and the gang which prompted the Royal Family to arrange a marriage between Prince Charles and a teenaged sloane – who had passed the virginity and fertility tests with flying colours before the engagement was announced – on the grounds that nothing could possibly go wrong…

 

Sir David Llewellyn married Joan Williams, who was head of the wartime Cabinet Office cypher office.

 

Cardiff North was then held by Donald Box, 1959-66, again for the Conservatives. Box was educated at he Cathedral School Llandaff, St John’s School in Pinner and Harrow County School for Boys. Box was a member of the Cardiff Stock Exchange and a partner in Lyddon & Company, stockbrokers. When he lost the seat, he returned to Lyddon & Company. From 1973 he was a member of the London Stock Exchange when regional members were allowed. Box became a Director of N.M. Rothschild in 1988.

Box was a strong opponent of strikes, championed the cause of business and of redevelopment of Cardiff’s docklands and blamed any failures on the left. In line with his constituency, in which a large proportion of the property was leasehold, he supported leasehold reform. I was intrigued to read that Box criticised ‘excessive welfare payments’. Whilst Box was in office, huge swathes of Wales – although perhaps not Cardiff North – were in quite serious poverty with many people living in very poor housing. Outside bogs were still absolutely standard in many areas. I wonder who Box thought were in receipt of the ‘excessive welfare payments’ which vexed him.

The Welsh Office was established in April 1965 whilst Box was an MP and as described in previous posts was rotten from the beginning. Not that Donald Box will have concerned himself with that.

 

Ted Rowlands – later Lord Rowlands – held Cardiff North for Labour, 1966-70. Rowlands attended Rhondda Grammar School, Wirral Grammar School and then King’s College London.

Whilst Rowlands was MP for Cardiff North, he served as a junior Minister in the Welsh Office, 1969-70, under Secretary of State George Thomas – who was known to be molesting children and teenagers (see post ‘It Wasn’t On Our Radar’). Not only was Thomas molesting young people himself, but he was concealing the wrongdoing of Dafydd and the paedophiles in north Wales (see post ‘The Cradle of Filth’).

It was while Rowlands was in the Welsh Office that John Allen – who set up the Bryn Alyn Community in 1968 – found that he could really do business in north Wales. I received a very helpful e mail yesterday explaining that once John Allen arrived in north Wales, he was very soon followed by a number of other people who seemed to be in possession of the funds to purchase remote old buildings and turn them into children’s homes/residential schools, where children were abused and trafficked, just as they were at Bryn Alyn. I am currently following up a few of the names that have been given to me to see if I can work out who it was who had the idea for establishing a massive sex trafficking ring in north Wales. Dr Dafydd Alun Jones will know whom I suspect came up with the business plan.

Ted Rowlands lost Cardiff North at the 1970 General Election but was elected for Methyr Tydfil at the 1970 by-election – he held the seat until 1983, when he was returned for the new constituency of Merthyr Tydfil and Rhymney, a seat which he held until 2001.

Rowlands was a junior Minister in the Welsh Office again, 1974-75, under Secretaries of State Peter Thomas and Lord John Morris – who carried on concealing the wrongdoing of Dafydd and the paedophiles, which had by now reached very serious levels (see post ‘The Cradle Of Filth’). Of course everyone was also keeping quiet about George Thomas.

Rowlands was appointed to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in 1975 and from 1976-79 under Callaghan’s premiership, he was Minister of State at the FCO.

In a debate on the Falklands War in April 1982, Rowlands revealed that the British were reading Argentine diplomatic traffic. Rowlands was criticised (but not prosecuted as per parliamentary privilege) for revealing this intelligence source – the likely result of his disclosure was that the Argentinians would secure their systems and the intelligence would dry up.

Hugh Bincheno, in his book ‘Razor’s Edge: The Unofficial History of the Falklands War’ stated that: ‘Argentine embassies used the same, top of the line, Swiss Crypto AG machine systems as their armed forces, so this was the precise equivalent of publicly announcing, during World War II, that the Allies had broken the Enigma system used by the Nazis. It is unlikely we shall ever know how much damage this betrayal of trust did to national security, but if anyone else than an MP had given the information to the Argentines they would have been prosecuted’.

Lord Ted sat on the Richard Commission with a few other paedophiles’ friends, which reported in 2004 on whether the National Assembly for Wales should have additional legislative powers.

 

Cardiff North Was held for the Tories, 1970-74, by Michael Roberts. Roberts was the first Headteacher of the Bishop of Llandaff Church in Wales High School when it opened in 1963. From Feb 1974-83 he was the Tory MP for Cardiff North West. When Thatcher was elected as PM in 1979, Roberts became a junior Welsh Office minister under Secretary of State Nicholas Edwards. So Roberts was in post whilst Edwards concealed the ever mounting heap of crap in north Wales – which by then included the unlawful arrest and imprisonment of Mary Wynch by Dafydd, as well as the fleecing of Mary of her property (see posts ‘The Mary Wynch Case – Details’). It was on Edwards’s watch when, as all hell broke loose in north Wales, Dafydd was joined by Dr Tony Francis (Dr X), a nice young doctor who had been working in Manchester  (see post ‘The Mentor’) – whom it transpired was as mad and as abusive as Dafydd, but a lot more plausible.

Tony Francis had trained in Cardiff where as a student he had known Neil Kinnock. After qualifying, Francis worked in Cardiff in the first half of the 1970s with the dreadful Professor Kenneth Rawnsley, a man who from the mid-1960s onwards spent decades concealing the criminality of Dafydd and the paedophiles (see post ‘ The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy’).

In the 1970s children who had been in care in north Wales started to be found dead. Nicholas Edwards and the Welsh Office said nothing about this but prioritised the development of Cardiff Bay – which made Edwards and his mates very rich (see post ‘Corruption Bay Special’).

Michael Roberts was taken ill while speaking at the despatch box in the Commons and was pronounced dead, aged 55, on arrival at hospital. Some allege that he died in the Commons but as that is illegal – although I can’t quite work out how it can be illegal to die somewhere – Roberts was declared dead at the hospital.

 

Ian Grist was the Conservative MP for Cardiff North, Feb 1974-83. Grist was born in Southampton and went to prep school in Broadstairs in Kent, after which he went to Repton School. He studied at Jesus College, Oxford. Grist had joined the Young Conservatives before going to Oxford and at Oxford became Jesus College Conservative Association’s secretary.

Grist’s initial career was as a colonial administrator. In 1960 he went to the Southern Cameroons as a plebiscite officer and in 1961 he moved to Nigeria, working as a manager for the United Africa Company. In 1963 he returned to Britain. On his return he became the Tories’ Welsh political education officer and then worked for the Conservative Research Dept, 1970-1974. It was during those years that Matthew Parris – who also worked in that Dept – alleged that not only was there a senior member of staff in the Conservative Research Dept who used to travel around London on buses propositioning young men, but that every summer a group of staff used to organise a holiday to a place in Italy known as the ‘villa of shame’ and were supplied with ‘boys’ who were ‘always willing’. Where did those willing boys come from and why were they so willing to have sex with a bunch of horrid old men from the Tory Party?

John Allen had ‘business interests’ in Europe and owned a villa in the south of France. He took the boys in his ‘care’ there ‘for holidays’.

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones ‘held clinics’ in Europe, including in the south of France. Dafydd claimed to be a sex therapist.

Elfed Roberts – the corrupt former Chairman of the NW Wales NHS Trust who had been a senior police officer in the North Wales Police but left after a conversation with the Chief Constable about the privileges and perks which Elfed seemed to be enjoying – used to hang out with mates of his from a number of police forces at an hotel in France called Chateau de Cop Choux. God knows what the staff of the Chateau de Cop Choux thought was going on when that lot turned up.

When the Tories took power in 1979 Ian Grist was appointed PPS to Nicholas Edwards, but he resigned in 1981, supposedly to return to focusing on local issues.

In the 1983 General Election Grist stood for the Tories for Cardiff Central rather than for Cardiff North and won. He held Cardiff Central until 1992. In 1987 Thatcher appointed Grist as a junior Minister in the Welsh Office under Welsh Secretaries Peter Walker and then David Hunt. Grist remained in that position until he was sacked by John Major in 1990.

At the Welsh Office Grist was responsible for health. So Grist was one of those in the Welsh Office who completely failed to deal with Gwynedd Health Authority as it drowned in debt and chaos and was the subject of questions in the House (see post ‘A Visit To Gwynedd Archives’), yet at the same time aggressively refused to deal with the concerns raised by Alison Taylor, Mary Wynch and I regarding serious criminal activity in the mental health services and social services in north Wales. Grist worked in the Welsh Office whilst they employed corrupt lawyer Andrew Park who conspired with Tony Francis, Dafydd and the paedophile gang to frame me for criminal offences and when Professor Robert Owen the corrupt Medical Ombudsman co-ordinated the 1988 cover-up of the criminal conduct of Dafydd, Tony Francis, Gwynedd Social Services and Clwyd and Gwynedd Health Authorities (see post ‘Enter Professor Robert Bluglass CBE’). One of the members of the paedophile gang in north Wales was Sir Peter Morrison, Thatcher’s friend and Tory MP for Chester, who whilst Ian Grist was in office held a number of jobs in Thatcher’s Gov’t and was Deputy Chairman of the Tory Party.

Grist was at the Welsh Office whilst the extraordinary events – including large scale research fraud –  involving my former colleagues at the Cancer Research Campaign and Tony Francis’s mate Dr Peter Mcguire which resulted in Prof Tim McElwain’s death occurred (see posts ‘Oh Lordy, It’s CR UK’, ‘Reports Of Death Greatly Exaggerated’ and ‘Apocalypse Now’).

Grist served on the Ministerial Group for alcohol abuse. Which must have been why Dafydd and his charity CAIS were given the remit – and funding – for tacking alcohol abuse in north Wales.

Grist was also responsible for Health when a man who caught the interests of the medical students was employed in the Dept of Physiology at University College Cardiff – Dr Roy Mottram. Dr Mottram was a transvestite and was Publicity Officer for the Beaumont Society. Mottram achieved quite a high profile in the mid-1980s and was given a lot of sympathetic media coverage. Roy Mottram’s official line that he was pleading for greater understanding for transvestites was contradicted by the medical students who alleged that Dr Mottram was doing some rather worrying things which did not receive media coverage.

In Aug 1999 Dr M. T. Haslam wrote an article for Gendys Journal in his capacity as a sex therapist and a Trustee of the Beaumont Society, bemoaning the lack of understanding of gender problems. Haslam made reference to his own work  as a sex/gender specialist in a clinic in York in the 1980s. In 2003 Haslam was imprisoned for seven years for raping and indecently assaulting female patients. The assaults had occurred in the 1980s. Haslam and his colleague William Kerr had raped and abused female patients for decades (see post ‘All The Ingredients Of The Scandal’). Complaint after complaint about them had been ignored. A nurse who complained about them was demoted and an academic in Leeds was threatened with the sack if he continued to raise concerns about them. This will sound very familiar to anyone who knows the background of Dafydd Alun Jones.

Dafydd held clinics in Yorkshire and Leeds.

I have a good friend who for many years tried to obtain psychological help for a sexual problem which distressed him but did not involve illegal or dangerous behaviour. My friend was referred to numerous ‘sex therapists’, including some of the highest profile names in mental health. Every one of them was nuts, sexually abusive or running a covert prostitution business. Perhaps there are genuine sex therapists hiding somewhere but in 25 years my friend did not find one, either within the NHS or the private sector.

Grist’s obituary in the Indie stated that ‘it fell to him to deny the links between high unemployment, poor health and suicides and he cannot have been altogether comfortable in doing so’. Grist will have known damn well that the exorbitant suicide rate in north Wales was a direct result of a sex trafficking gang operating within the mental health and child protection services. As far as I could see no-one at all had a problem denying the horror of what was going on – even when it was clear that some of the suicides were highly likely to have been murders.

Grist attacked Welsh devolution, local government reorganisation in Glamorgan, Neil Kinnock and those attending pop festivals (‘alternative society creeps and freebooters’). He attacked water privatisation and the poll tax for being ‘regressive by nature’ and a ‘legal nightmare’. Grist also opposed cuts in mortgage payments for the unemployed.

Grist represented the Welsh Office on the Cabinet Committee dealing with urban regeneration – so he was probably one of those encouraging the bonanza for already very rich people which was the development of Corruption Bay.

As a pro-European Grist supported Michael Heseltine to succeed Thatcher as leader, as had Welsh Secretary David Hunt and his deputy Wynn Griffiths. When Major sacked Grist, Grist commented that ‘I was the most sackable of the three leaves on the tree’.

Ken Clarke described Grist as a ‘useful colleague to have, helpful in a quiet way’. Clarke concealed the mountain of crap in north Wales throughout the years that he was in the Dept of Health (see post ‘Running The Country – And All That Jazz’).

In 1983 Ron Davies was elected as the Labour MP for Caerphilly. No-one mentioned a word about Ron’s activities re cruising and dogging until he was caught with a male prostitute on Clapham Common in 1998, whereupon a number of people from south Wales stated that ‘everyone knew’ about Ron. Before being elected as an MP, Ron had been an advisor at Mid-Glamorgan Education Authority. In 2001 when drama teacher and S4C scriptwriter/director John Owen killed himself shortly before he was due to stand trial for sexually abusing school pupils, numerous people came forward and maintained that Owen had been the subject of complaints stretching back decades but Mid-Glamorgan Education Authority and others had not acted upon them (see post ‘Yet More Inglorious Bastards’).

 

In the 1992 General Election Grist lost Cardiff Central to Labour Co-operative candidate Jon Owen Jones.

When Grist lost his seat, David Hunt appointed him as Chairman of the South Glamorgan Health Authority for a four year term. Hansard, June 1990, records a discussion regarding South Glamorgan Health Authority which suggests that South Glamorgan Health Authority was not in a good state at the time. There were very serious problems at the University Hospital Cardiff which eventually erupted in a number of scandals – including allegations of criminal conduct in the mortuary – but the full dreadful horror of events at the University Hospital was never made public. Medical students voted with their feet and that institution has now lost any reputation that it once had.

In June 1990 two Labour MPs – a Rhodri Morgan and an Alun Michael – questioned David Hunt in his capacity as Welsh Secretary over the mess at South Glamorgan Health Authority. Hunt became very irate with Alun Michael and stated that:

If we are to have a good working relationship, I do not want to find falling into my hands letters from the National Union of Public Employees instructing the hon. Gentleman to send certain letters. I shall make the letter available to him so that he can show that he is not a puppet on a NUPE string’.

So Alun Michael had a reputation of doing what he was told by NUPE. NUPE was the union which represented many of those accused of the abuse of children in care in the high profile scandals in the 1970s, 80s and 90s – some of those accused of abuse were even NUPE reps (see post ‘I Warn You…’). No wonder Blair was so keen for Alun Michael to become Wales’s First Secretary after Ron Davies was caught with his trousers down on Clapham Common and had to resign – and no wonder that Alun Michael resigned as First Secretary immediately that the whitewash which was the Waterhouse Report was submitted, his job having been done  (see post ‘News From Sicily’). Would the Police and Crime Commissioner for South Wales like to comment on the allegations that he was a running dog for the paedophiles of NUPE?

The other thing recorded in Hansard, June 1990, is the enthusiasm of David Hunt, the Welsh Office Ministers and Rhodri and Alun Michael for the campaign which had been launched by the Kidney Research Unit for Wales Foundation that morning to encourage organ and blood donation. The man behind this campaign was Professor William Asscher, a nephrologist who had previously worked in the University Hospital, Cardiff. By the time that Hunt et al were enthusiastically embracing Asscher’s campaign, Asscher was Dean of St George’s Hospital Medical School – where he was presiding over serious criminal misconduct including the collusion with Dafydd and the paedophiles in north Wales, as well as the collusion with organised crime involving child abuse and drug offences in south London (‘A Galaxy Of Talent’). As well as research fraud (see post ‘I Don’t Believe It!’). I witnessed all this because I was working at St George’s at that very time when Hunt et al were toadying to Asscher….

Asscher’s campaign had been launched in South Glamorgan, but Hansard documents that Hunt and ‘all Welsh Members’ would be meeting ‘representatives of the Kidney Research Unit for Wales Foundation’ ‘outside the House’ to ‘promote their excellent endeavours’.

So Hunt, did you enjoy meeting and doing favours for Asscher – who led a medical school which employed a Professor of Paediatrics who had already been imprisoned for the possession of child porn and who’s mates were still employed at St George’s concealing yet more serious crime?

David Hunt was the MP for the Wirral and then the Wirral West, 1976-97. So he will have known all about the Liverpool branch of Dafydd’s empire (see post ‘These Sharks Are Crap As Well’). In 1997 Hunt was given a peerage.

Hunt is a lawyer who trained at Bristol University in the mid-1960s. The corrupt GP Dr D.G.E. Wood who was assisting Dafydd and Tony Francis to run the sex trafficking ring in north Wales went to Bristol Medical School at the same time as Hunt was studying law there! Hunt was never an MP in the south west, but in 1973 Lilibet gave him an MBE for ‘political services to the west of England’. Wood’s family lived in the Bristol area – Wood’s father was a Top Doctor as well.

David Hunt was senior partner at the national law firm Beachcroft Wansbroughs (now DAC Beachcroft LLP), 1996- 05. He is now Chairman of the firm’s financial services division and is regarded as a major figure in the world of insurance and financial services.

Lord Hunt – being a lawyer, I presume that you do know how illegal trafficking people for sex is, particularly children? And would you please tell us what happened to the victims of the paedophile gang who were imprisoned in the cellar at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh after you told the world that Denbigh had closed in the summer of 1995 – when you returned as Welsh Secretary for a matter of days before handing the job over to Lord Hague of the Massive Cover-Up? Particularly as Denbigh hadn’t closed at all…

 In 1990, although Vice-Chairman of the Association of Conservative Clubs, Ian Grist – the scourge of ‘freebooters’ – sought compensation from his local Conservative Club, after falling down the stairs to the cellars and breaking his leg.
The man who invited David Hunt and all the Welsh Members to a knees up on College Green after Question Time to promote the ‘worthy cause’ of Asscher of the Paedophiles was Gwilym Jones, who was Vice-President of the Kidney Research Unit for Wales Foundation. Gwilym was Conservative MP for Cardiff North, 1983-97! Furthermore, Gwilym was a junior Minister in the Welsh Office, 1992-97. So Gwilym could tell us something about how I and other witnesses to the crimes of Dafydd and the paedophiles were dragged through courts on ludicrous trumped-up charges after the paedophiles’ friends had perjured themselves but no questions were ever asked when cases collapsed. Gwilym could also say something about the many kids in care and psych patients who were found dead during those years and about how Dafydd was allowed to retire with an agreement not to follow up the many serious complaints about him but nonetheless clutching the contract to provide ‘substance abuse services’ for north Wales (see post ‘The Evolution Of A Drugs Baron?’) Oh – and the final ruination of Mary Wynch in 1994 by Michael Howard at the Home Office. Oh – and the firebomb in 1992 – days after Gwilym was appointed as junior Minister – which killed five witnesses to the north Wales paedophile gang (see post ‘The Silence Of The Welsh Lambs’). And of course Gordon Anglesea winning nearly £400k in a libel action after he was named as an abuser of kids in care in north Wales – in 2016 Gordon Anglesea was imprisoned for the historical abuse of kids in care in north Wales. Then the organisation of the Waterhouse Inquiry by Hague whilst Hague was Welsh Secretary…
There is a great deal for you to explain Gwilym.

Prior to his election as an MP, Gwilym served on Cardiff City Council. Elected at 21 years old, Gwilym is believed to be the youngest ever member of the Council. He became Deputy Leader and Acting Leader of the Conservative Group. So what talents did Gwilym have that were spotted at such a tender age?

Gwilym is an active Freemason.

 

Gwilym lost Cardiff North at the 1997 General Election – it was of course the year of Blair’s landslide. Although Blair was confident that Labour would win the election, Blair could have thought that he’d have a fight on his hands for Cardiff North – who on earth could beat Gwilym Jones and his Masonic network in terms of their credentials as a paedophiles’ friend?

Easy – Julie Morgan, Rhodri’s wife! Not only was Julie married to Rhodri, who had been a reliable paedophiles’ friend for years – including one who kept his mouth shut about Ron Davies, whom Blair appointed Welsh Secretary upon becoming PM – but Julie was a social worker with Barry Social Services and served as Assistant Director of Barnardo’s. Barnardo’s had been involved in a number of child abuse scandals and was linked with the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal.  Julie went back as far as the heyday of paedophilia as well -she was a local councillor on  South Glamorgan County Council, 1985-97 and was a Cardiff City Councillor from 1995. During those years there were major investigations into the abuse of children in care in south Wales.

Julie was born in Cardiff and was educated at Dinas Powys Primary School and Howell’s School, Llandaff. She then attended King’s College London. Julie was well-networked with the paedophiles’ friends of south Wales before she had graduated. Julie campaigned for Jim Callaghan before she had even begun her first term at King’s. She campaigned for the smug old bastard alongside the Windbag Kinnock, Glenys Kinnock – whose mum and dad in Holyhead were big mates with Lord Cledwyn, who’d spent years assisting Dafydd and the paedophiles (see post ‘The Cradle Of Filth’) – and her future husband, Rhodri. Rhodri and the Windbag shared a house when they were young. Can you image the scenes inside… Julie also studied at the University of Manchester and did a postgraduate course in social administration at University College, Cardiff.

Julie’s fundamental beliefs include the equal treatment of children in respect of protection from violence. Julie is a mate of Harriet’s and Julie and Harriet having been involved in the field of women’s rights, promoting the introduction of all-women shortlists for political parties. In 1997 Julie was  selected on an all-women shortlist. Julie is also interested in the welfare of children, black and minority ethnic and disabled people. She is the Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Children in Wales and is a member of numerous other APPGs, including those on Sex Equality and Compassion in Dying. Within the PLP, she is an active member of the Women’s Group.

Obviously Julie has to fit all these commitments in around her over-riding duties to paedophile gangs and those who facilitate them.

Between 16 December 2009 and 12 March 2010, Julie steered the Sunbeds (Regulation) Bill (a private members’ bill) through the House of Commons. Presumably the regulation of sunbeds is one of Julie’s Fundamental Beliefs.

In 2010, Julie lost Cardiff North to Tory Jonathan Evans. The proposed sunbeds regulation was obviously not sufficient to win over the hearts of the affluent middle classes of Cardiff North who are employed in the failing NHS and welfare services.

Someone must have forgiven Julie though, because in May 2011 she was elected as AM for Cardiff North, as part of the influx of paedophiles’ friends into the National Assembly when people just wouldn’t shut up about re-opening the investigation into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal (see post ‘The Battle Of The Cowshed’).

 

Jonathan Evans held Cardiff North for the Tories, 2010-15. Born in Tredegar, Evans was educated at Lewis School, Pengam, Howardian High School, Cardiff and the Law Society’s College of Law in Guildford and London. Evans trained with solicitors Abse and Cohen in Cardiff from 1968, joined the firm upon qualification in 1973 and became a Managing Partner in 1987. Leo Abse was a big mate of George Thomas and for years protected Thomas when Thomas was challenged over his sexual offending – Abse’s services for Thomas included paying complainants off and threatening to have others imprisoned (see post ‘It Wasn’t On Our Radar’). Abse was investigated for historic sex offences against children himself.

Evans has been involved in politics for years. He first tried to get elected in 1987, but didn’t succeed until 1992, when he was elected as the Tory MP for Brecon and Radnorshire. Evans was a junior Minister in John Major’s Gov’t, serving as Parliamentary Secretary to the Lord Chancellor; Corporate Affairs Minister at the DTI; and then serving under William Hague as a junior Minister in the Welsh Office, 1996-97 – just as Hague organised the Waterhouse Inquiry. Evans lost the seat in 1997.

In 1999 Evans was elected as MEP for Wales and he was re-elected at the 2004 Euro-elections. He was Leader of the Conservatives in the European Parliament from 2001 until 2004. From 2004 to 2009 Evans was President of the European Parliament Delegation for relations with the U.S. Congress and Co-Chairman of the Transatlantic Legislators Dialogue. Following the decision of President Bush and Angela Merkel to set up the Transatlantic Economic Council, Evans became Chairman of the Council’s Advisory Board. In August 2007, he was selected to fight Cardiff North in the 2010 General Election. It was at about that time that all parties were planning the influx of paedophiles’ friends into Welsh Commons seats and into the National Assembly…

Evans was Chairman of the Association of Conservative Clubs, 2006-15 and Chairman of the Political Committee of the Carlton Club, 2013-15. He was Chairman of the Welsh Conservative Party, 2014-2017.

In 1997, Evans was appointed Director of Insurance in the City of London office of Eversheds and remained a consultant to the practice until 2009. Evans has also acted as a consultant on London Insurance market issues to several major North American insurance corporations.

He is a former Deputy Chairman of the Welsh Housing Corporation (Tai Cymru). A number of paedophiles’ friends have been and are involved with the housing associations in north Wales and Adam Peat, the former Public Ombudsman for Wales, was Chief Executive of Tai Cymru, 1989-98. Whilst Ombudsman, Adam Peat refused to investigate serious complaints against the NHS in north Wales including those concerning criminal conduct on the part of NHS staff which was linked to the sex trafficking ring. For full details of Adam Peat’s wrongdoing, see post ‘Yet More Crime And Punishment’. After retiring as Ombudsman in April 2008, Peat became Chair of Magna Housing, a housing association in the West Country.  Since I wrote ‘Yet More Crime And Punishment’ Adam has disappeared from the internet…

In 1995 Jonathan Evans was appointed as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. From 1999-09 he served on the Boards of NFU Mutual and Country Mutual Insurance Brokers. Evans was Chairman of Pearl Group Limited, 2005-09, and non-executive Chairman of the Phoenix Life Insurance companies, 2009-16.

After stepping down as MP for Cardiff North in April 2015, Evans became non-executive chairman of Allied World Managing Agency. He also joined the Board of Directors of Allied World Assurance Company Holdings.

In September 2015 Evans became a Freeman of the City of London.

Whilst Evans was MP for Cardiff North, the demands that Sir Ronald Waterhouse’s cover-up of the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal be re-investigated resulted in the 2016 Macur Review, which was so heavily redacted that no-one knew what it actually said.

A Roman Catholic, Evans is a leading pro-life campaigner for the SPUC and launched their Welsh office in Cardiff in the 1990s. He has been a Vice President of the Catholic Union of Great Britain since 2001.

 

Cardiff North was held by Tory Craig Williams, 2015-17. Williams was a Councillor on City of Cardiff Council from 2008. In June 2017 Williams lost the seat to Labour’s Anna McMorrin.

Anna McMorrin grew up near Brecon and joined the Labour Party as a student. She graduated from the University of Southampton in 1994 and then undertook a post-graduate diploma in journalism at Cardiff University.

McMorrin subsequently worked in PR and communications. She was a part-time communications officer for the Labour Party, 1996-97 and worked for public affairs consultancy Hill and Knowlton. In 2006, McMorrin was appointed Campaigns and Communications Director for Friends of the Earth Cymru. In 2008, she joined the Welsh Gov’t as a Spad, working with Ministers Jane Hutt, John Griffiths and Alun Davies.

McMorrin left the Welsh Gov’t to become Director of Llais Ltd and joining Invicta Public Affairs in October 2016.

In 2014, McMorrin moved from her position in the Welsh Gov’t Ministry for Natural Resources after starting a relationship with then Minister, Alun Davies, with whom she now lives.

McMorrin is a member of UNISON and GMB, LGBT Labour, Labour Women’s Network and the Cooperative Party.

So Anna is a National Assembly insider and lives in the constituency in which so many of her colleagues past and present live. More importantly  she has been at the centre of the toxic bubble which allegedly caused the suicide of Carl Sergeant. McMorrin also advised Jane Hutt – surely that alone suggests that she’s not going to make a particularly useful contribution to the Assembly.

 

So that’s the lowdown on how one wins the seat of Cardiff North – one represents the interests of many of those who are responsible for the very big mess which Wales has found itself in for so many years.

Of course since 1999, there has also been an AM for Cardiff North, which enabled dear old Julie Morgan to bag another job representing the paedophiles’ friends after she’d lost her job as an MP.

Julie won the Assembly seat of Cardiff North in 2011 by beating the previous incumbent, Tory Jonathan Morgan who had held the seat since 2007. Prior to that, Jonathan was the AM for South Wales Central, 1999-07.

Jonathan Morgan was born in north Cardiff, was educated at the Bishop of Llandaff Church in Wales High School, Cardiff and did his first degree and MSc at the University of Wales, Cardiff.

Before election to the Welsh Assembly, Morgan was European Officer for Coleg Glan Hafren. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts. He has also been a Governor at two Cardiff Schools was a pupil barrister at 9 Park Place from September 2004.

Jonathan Morgan is a member of a well-known Tory family who have for many years been at the centre of the rot in Cardiff. His grandfather Winston Griffiths was the Deputy Lord Mayor of Cardiff and his great-uncle Brian Griffiths was Deputy Lord Mayor and Lord Mayor. Morgan’s mother Linda has also spent years as a Cardiff Councillor. Jonathan and his relatives will know just about everything about the entrenched corruption in Cardiff, including the scam that was Corruption Bay, the serious problems in the University Hospital in Cardiff and of course the allegations of the abuse of children in care and the activities of George Thomas.

The chambers at which Jonathan was a pupil boasts Winston Roddick QC among its senior barristers. The Winston from Caernarfon, who was a Plod in Liverpool before he become a barrister and spent a whole career keeping schtum about the paedophile gangs and associated criminality which were wrecking Wales – the Winston who was Counsel General for Wales at the time of the publication of the Waterhouse Report. ‘Masonic  handshake?Mind how you go sir, have a safe journey’.

 

Jonathan of the Conservative Morgan dynasty became the AM for Cardiff North in 2007 after the previous Labour AM, Sue Essex, stood down. I can’t find any details of the reasons why Essex stood down, but the references to the ‘best decision for her family’ and the warm words from Rhodri Morgan praising her ‘massive contribution’ to Cardiff and the Assembly suggests that she left under a substantial cloud.

Sue Essex was elected as AM for Cardiff North in 1999, upon the formation of the National Assembly. She was born in Cromford, brought up in Tottenham and went to Leicester University whilst it was crawling with people colluding with the paedophile gang in Leicestershire which numbered among its members Frank Beck and Greville Janner (see post ‘Radical Leicester And Some Other Free Radicals’). She moved to south Wales in 1971. Essex worked as a Researcher for the EOC (Equal Opportunities Commission), 1985-87, another body which acted as a magnet to paedophiles’ friends. Essex was a Planner for Mid-Glamorgan County Council, 1987-91 and then lectured in Planning at the University of Wales, Cardiff, 1991-99. She was employed as a Planner at the London Borough of Waltham Forest, 1996-97 and for Essex County Council, 1997-99.

Essex was a Cardiff City Councillor, 1983-95 and Deputy Leader/Leader Cardiff City Council, 1995-99.

She was the Welsh Assembly Government Minister for Finance, Local Government and Public Services , 2003-07.

Thus Sue Essex was at the centre of failure, corruption and complete denial for many years and would also have had the dirt on everyone else involved. No wonder Rhodri believed that she’d made a ‘massive contribution’.

 

 

 

 

News Round Up, February 15 2018

There has been so much action in Wales over the past few days that I am going to just focus on that in this round up with the exception of one big English story, rather than the madness prevailing in the rest of the UK/world as well.

It’s business as usual in north Wales, with drug busts across the region, a human foot being washed up at Felinheli and the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board about to fall of the edge of a cliff. The Daily Post Online also ran a story under the intriguing headline ‘Chest of Drawers Causes Havoc On A55’, but I haven’t had time to catch up with that.

The foot – still in a boot no less – was washed up at Felinheli a few days ago. The Post Online quoted a detective who stated that the foot was believed to have belonged to a man and that DNA tests are now being conducted in an attempt to identify which man precisely. The Post also reported that a body that was washed up at Trearddur Bay last November has now been identified – it was of a man from Dublin. It has been stated that the death wasn’t suspicious.

Things are falling apart at the flagship titan prison at Wrexham which so many of Wales’s politicians begged for. As well as the thriving trade in illegal drugs which seems to have existed from the day that HMP Berwyn opened its doors and indeed locked them again behind the first inmates, there has now been a dirty protest and a roof top siege. Which is quite impressive for a prison so new and one that was going to revive the Welsh economy.

The big news as ever is the NHS in Wales. A few days ago it was reported that Angels are now leaving the Betsi at a faster rate than they are being recruited. This is what happens when asinine excuses including violent mental health patients, salaries so low that Angels have to use foodbanks and schools that dare teach Welsh are trotted out to explain recruitment problems, rather than an acknowledgement that the region’s health and social care services are being run by the remains of a vicious paedophile gang and no sane person can bear to work with them. It might have escaped the attention of Peter Higson (the Chair of the Betsi), but one of the best and bravest nurses that he ever employed has been sacked by him and now struck off by the NMC for having sex with her own husband, after she blew the whistle on the serious abuse of elderly mental health patients at Tawel Fan ward in the Ablett Unit, Ysbyty Glan Clwyd.

The families of the patients who were abused in Tawel Fan are now seriously angry after they were told by Peter Higson and Gary Doherty (the Chief Exec) on Monday that both of the pending reports into the Tawel Fan scandal have now been delayed. Donna Ockenden – who has already compiled one utterly damning report about Tawel Fan (see posts ‘The Tawel Fan Scandal’ and ‘News Update Re Tawel Fan Scandal – Jan 17th 2017’) – has now reviewed the cases of more than 100 patients but she has been ill and will be unable to deliver her second report as planned on March 8th. The other report due from HASCAS (Health and Social Care Advisory Service) – they have also already produced one report – has been delayed as well. HASCAS are ‘looking at the impact on individual patients’. I’m not sure that anyone needs HASCAS to do that – the impact was obvious. One patient had an untreated fractured arm, others were crawling around naked on the floor which was covered in urine and faeces, they had all been drugged up to the eye-balls with anti-psychotics and the Angels were swearing at and threatening them. One patient had been barricaded into his bed with furniture.

Darren Millar, the AM for Clwyd West, has once more spoken out about Tawel Fan in the face of the rest of his colleagues remaining silent. Darren has not been reluctant to point out that it is scandalous that some NHS staff suspended after the Tawel Fan scandal have now been suspended on full pay for three and a half years – Tawel Fan was closed down in Dec 2013 – and that others were simply moved into new jobs within the Health Board. Darren commented that none of them have faced any action. He could have added that the only person who did face action was the nurse who blew the whistle – she’s been sacked and struck off by a kangaroo court who found her guilty of having sex with her own husband.

Rather worryingly the Post reported a few hours ago that a naked man running through Coronation Gardens in Rhyl was apprehended by 10 police officers and taken to Ysbyty Glan Clwyd – where he will probably have been admitted to one of the mental health wards at the Ablett Unit and be treated about as competently as the Tawel Fan patients were.

Hannah Turtle’s trial for murdering her baby continues – Hannah is a mental health patient from north Wales and no doubt if the truth were known there will have been a long history of gross incompetence and serious neglect on the part of the mental health services before Hannah killed her baby.

Today there was a debate in the Senedd on mental health. Conservative AM David Melding spoke about his panic attacks and Vaughan Gething the Health Minister praised Mr Melding’s ‘bravery for sharing his experiences’. This is the Vaughan who ignored pleas from me re the abuse that was dished out by the mental health services in my direction, failed to respond when Karen Hughes – who was raising concerns of illegal conduct, workplace bullying and neglect of patients so severe that a death resulted – contacted him concerning Flintshire MIND and has no doubt ignored correspondence from other people supplying Vaughan with first hand accounts of the brutality and inhumanity which is now so prevalent in the mental health services. The Vaughan who gave Mark Isherwood and Darren Millar a bollocking a few weeks ago as they begged him to address the deaths and chaos happening at the Betsi on the grounds that they were ‘talking down the NHS’.

BBC News Wales reported that the Senedd passed a motion expressing regret ‘that some people with mental health conditions face injustices and challenges when accessing services’. When I read the wording of that motion, I presumed that it could only have been written by Jane Hutt/Mark Drakeford/Julie Morgan/Lesley Griffiths, but I note that the Conservative AMs tabled the motion. I presume therefore that they had taken advice from the aforementioned people when they decided on phrasing it. ‘Injustice and challenges’ does not really describe thugs of male Angels screaming at you to get out or they’ll have you arrested/kicking the chairs next to you with jackboots whilst accusing you of impersonating a GP/perjuring themselves in an attempt to have you imprisoned or an on call GP claiming that they’re busy with other patients when they have seen two patients for five minutes each in the last three hours whilst you have been waiting/telling you that they are waiting for a room to become vacant when there are two vacant rooms across the hall available to them which have been vacant since you arrived. However at least I have managed to survive the injustices and challenges – some years ago one man who encountered injustices and challenges from both the Hergest Unit and Ysbyty Gwynedd A&E when trying to access services was found dead in the Cathedral Gardens a few hours later (see post ‘Two Dangerous Very Dishonest Nurses’).

Vaughan mentioned that the Welsh Gov’t have dedicated nearly £650 million to mental health services in the next financial year. Vaughan, do the nation’s public purse a favour and save your money. Don’t give the mental health services anything – at present the ‘services’ are abusive and damaging and less harm would be done if they were simply not there. Furthermore if they weren’t there, no-one would waste their time and energy trying to access ‘services’ only to be faced with quite mad Angels, Top Doctors and social workers hurling abuse at them, accusing them of malingering, occasionally assaulting them and then trying to fit them up in court when a complaint is made. You can save on the CCTV as well, because when the Ysbyty Gwynedd CCTV filmed the A&E Angels threatening and harassing me, Martin Jones the Chief Exec of the NW Wales NHS Trust destroyed the footage, so there seems to be little point in spending all that money on CCTV. Or indeed on Martin Jones – particularly in his present role of ‘Director of External Investigations, NHS Wales’ (see post ‘A Major Coup – Or A Complete Disaster?’).

The BBC also reported that the use of a new single number to access the NHS – 111 – has now been trialled in the area served by Abertawe Bro Morgannwg Health Board. This service is due to be extended across the whole of Wales over the next three years, although a warning has been given that this is not a ‘golden bullet’ to solve ‘NHS pressures’. It won’t be a golden bullet to solve anything unless someone takes rather greater care in selecting and supervising those who answer the calls – if the phone is repeatedly slammed down on patients asking for help (or if ‘professionals’ flatly refuse to attend even when the phone is not repeatedly slammed down), if Angels answer the phone by screeching ‘oo is it?’ when someone rings or tell callers that ‘we’re not allowed to speak to you’, the new number is not going to be any better than the old one. It wasn’t the number itself that was the problem, it was the responses that people were being met with when they rang the number. When Ffion Wyn Roberts from Porthmadog rang 999 in 2010 and told them that someone had got into her house and that she was frightened, only to be told by the ‘trained call handler’ to ring back ‘when you’re not drunk’ and was then murdered by the intruder, the outcome would not have been any different if the number had not been 999. The outcome would have only been different if there hadn’t have been a monster handling the call. That particular monster was not dismissed – in fact I don’t think that they were even disciplined – so they could well still be answering a 999 call near you. Or indeed a 111 call.

 

The noxious private company Kingdom which has caused chaos in the Conwy area after fining numerous people large amounts of money for trivial acts of civil disobedience has had its contract terminated by Gwynedd County Council after a matter of days – although I think someone needs to ask why Gwynedd County Council ever issued them with a contract for anything in the first place.

Elfed Wyn Jones, an international politics student at Aberystwyth University is undertaking a fast as part of his campaign for more Welsh language programming on TV. I presume that Elfed Wyn has taken a leaf out of Gwynfor Evans’s book – Gwynfor was the Plaid MP for Carmarthen, 1966-70 and then again 1974-79, who began a hunger strike and famously stated his intentions to fast until he died if Thatcher’s Gov’t did not keep their election promise to establish a fourth Welsh language TV channel, after Thatcher decided that this was an election commitment that could be forgotten about once she had been elected. The official story is that the prospect of Gwynfor – a pacifist who always sought to achieve his ends by non-violent means – starving himself to death was so terrible that Cledwyn Hughes visited Willie Whitelaw, the Home Secretary, in London and was able to persuade Willie to agree to establishing S4C and thus Gwynfor called his hunger strike off. The harsh reality is that Cledwyn, the Archbishop of Wales Gwilym Williams and Sir Goronwy Daniel, the Principal of Aberystwyth University, reminded Whitelaw of the paedophile gang in operation in north Wales of which Thatcher’s friend the Tory MP for Chester Sir Peter Morrison was a member (see post ‘A Bit More Paleontology’). The paedophile gang that Whitelaw, as well as many of his colleagues, had ignored and then concealed. Willie et al decided that S4C would be a small price to pay and the paedophile gang continued their business unhindered. Gwynfor may have been a pacifist, but he will have known about the organised abuse of children himself – there was a gang at work in west Wales on his patch with links to the gang in north Wales. Furthermore, Ioan Bowen Rees acted as an advisor to Gwynfor – Ioan Bowen Rees was the Chief Executive of Gwynedd County Council whilst the paedophile gang in north Wales abused children in homes run by Gwynedd Social Services. Before he became Chief Exec of Gwynedd, Bowen Rees was County Secretary of Dyfed County Council – whilst a paedophile ring was active in Dyfed (see post ‘I Know Nuzzing’).

So unless Elfed Wyn has info about another paedophile gang – one that Theresa May doesn’t know about, as opposed to the one that was facilitated by St George’s Hospital Medical School and included their Professor of Paediatrics Oliver Brooke which Theresa did know about when she was a Councillor for the London Borough of Merton (which covered an area served by St George’s) between 1986-94 – Elfed Wyn will be fasting in vain.

I am currently reading Gareth Price’s book about the history of BBC Wales, which is a mine of information about the people involved in launching S4C as well as in a lot of other things – I will be blogging about it soon.

 

Carl Sargeant’s son Jack has just been elected as AM for the seat of Alyn and Deeside that Carl held until his death.

 

Lastly, the leading news story in the London-based media today  is the conviction of Berry Bennell for more than 40 sexual offences against minors whilst he worked as a football coach. I’ve been so busy researching for some forthcoming posts that I haven’t been following the Bennell story, but I did notice that he abused youngsters at Manchester City and committed other offences in Cheshire. I have received an e mail from someone telling me that Channel 4 news mentioned that the Bennell story had a Welsh connection. I did wonder if it might have. The paedophile gang facilitated by Dafydd and the mental health services in north Wales operated in Cheshire as well and the delightful Keith Fearns, former team leader of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team – who was always ready to give a kicking to anyone who had spilt the pints of the paedophile gang – was involved with football in Manchester many years ago. Since he has been in north Wales, Fearns has of course become notorious for managing his ‘ladies football team’, whom he takes on unlikely trips to Eastern Europe. Then there is Martin Jones who for some years has been coaching children’s football. I have no idea exactly what Fearns’s and Martin’s motives are, but I really don’t think that these two are simply participating in football with young people out of the goodness of their hearts.
