Previous posts and comments have made reference to Huw Daniel, the appalling old git who worked as a barrister on the corrupt Chester and Wales Circuit for donkey’s years until someone was foolish enough to give him a job as a judge, from which point on he cluttered up the Circuit in a more senior capacity. The tabloids loved old Daniel as a No Nonsense Judge Who Was Tough On Young Thugs. Those tabloids didn’t know much about him.
My post ‘Interesting Happenings In The Legal System’ described the attempt by those we know and love in north Wales to have me fitted up for ‘threatening to kill’ Alun Davies, a corrupt north Wales NHS senior manager, in 2002. What I had actually done was tell Davies’s secretary that he was a fat idiot. Davies delighted in telling everyone who would listen that I would get ‘seven years in prison’. The case circulated around the courts of north Wales for the best part of two years, during which time I lost my job and my home. The charges were withdrawn on the first day of the trial, although hordes of NHS staff, as well as a police officer, had loyally turned up at court to perjure themselves. Huw Daniel was the Presiding judge and was very angry indeed when he discovered the the prosecution had withdrawn the charges and instead were doing me for the lowest level of Public Order Offence, ie. telling Alun Davies’s secretary that he was a fat idiot. Daniel imposed the heaviest sentence that he was legally able to – more than 100 hours of community service and a fine – and issued a restraining order against me preventing me from going to NHS premises, such was the danger that I presented to NHS staff. I later found out that the restraining order was legally invalid and that Daniel knew this.
Years later I discovered that within days of the case, someone had unlawfully accessed the PNC and recorded a conviction for another more serious offence against my name. Furthermore, a forged certificate of indictment was subsequently found in the possession of Chester Court, stating that I had pleaded guilty to ‘violent disorder’ at Caernarfon Crown Court. I have never been charged with such an offence. I wrote to the North Wales Police’s legal department about the matter some two years ago but nothing has been resolved. See post ‘Even More Confusion Regarding Those Legal Conundrums’.
Huw Daniel was for a number of years the judge with responsibility for Mental Health Tribunals in Wales. His father was J.E. Daniel, one of the early leading lights in and the President of Plaid Cymru. J.E. Daniel was a mate of Saunders Lewis, who was a mate of Dafydd’s when Dafydd was busy being a young nationalist activist in the 1950s and 60s. See post ‘Tan yn Llyn’.
A lot of people in north Wales – and not just offenders either – do not like Huw Daniel. At best he is seen as a pompous obnoxious fool, but he has been described to me as ‘malignant’.
On 8 March 1997, The Indie reported on a case over which Huw Daniel presided at Chester Crown Court. The No Nonsense Judge, to several rounds of applause from the public gallery, had sentenced Keith Laverack, a former senior manager of Cambridgeshire Social Services, to 18 years in prison for a string of sexual assaults on children in care over a period of 20 years. Huw had a great time at the trial. He told Chester Crown Court that Laverack was a ‘career paedophile’, that this case was ‘unquestionably the most serious case of its kind’ that old Huw could remember and that it would cause ‘tremendous public outrage’. At one point Huw became seriously over-excited as he spoke about the ‘perverted lusts’ of Laverack.
According to Huw, Laverack had ‘taken advantage of damaged children to satisfy his perverted lusts knowing full well all his victims wanted was love, affection and security’. Pretty much like Huw’s mate Dafydd, who took advantage of ‘damaged children’ when they hit 18. The Dafydd who was known to tell his patients that he loved them and who cohabited with others…
Huw Daniel observed that Laverack abused his victims knowing that he could because ‘the system allowed you to get away with it’. Indeed it did Daniel, because if the kids complained, they were referred to Dafydd and his colleagues and would find themselves sectioned in a locked ward; then in Risley Remand Centre if they still didn’t shut up and if they really were presenting a challenge, in a secure psychiatric unit/high security hospital. Along the way, they would make a few court appearances in front of Huw Daniel et al, who would bellow and rant in court, maintaining that these were dreadful people in the dock and all that anyone had ever tried to do was help them.
At Laverack’s trial, Daniel commented that Laverack abused children ‘confident in the knowledge’ that if the kids did complain ‘they would not be believed’. Huw knew the ropes then.
At my 2003 hearing for telling Alun Davies’s secretary that he was a fat idiot – the charges of ‘threatening to kill Alun Davies’ were withdrawn on the first day of the trial after a whistleblower, who had witnessed the senior staff of the Hergest Unit planning to fit me up for that offence by encouraging a group of Angels to perjure themselves, made it clear that he would go public on what had gone on as well as on the abuse of patients at the Hergest Unit if my trial went ahead – Huw Daniel stated that he did not believe my malicious allegations against the ‘excellent’ staff of the Hergest Unit and that while I saw myself as the victim, the ‘real victims’ were Alun Davies ‘and his family’ no less. I have never communicated with Alun Davies’s family and would not recognise them if I saw them. I now have stacks of documents in my possession compiled and signed by Davies and his associates which detailed their plans to frame me.
Huw Daniel spent his entire working life on the corrupt Chester and Wales Circuit, working alongside many others who concealed the paedophile ring which had operated for decades in the region.
Keith Laverack had spent twenty years working as a teacher and then headmaster in children’s homes in Cheshire and Cambridgeshire and it was for offences that he committed when in those positions that he was tried at Chester Crown Court. Loverack, who was 52 yrs old at the time, denied 20 charges, but was found guilty of 15 of them, 11 of buggery and 4 of indecent assault.
Laverack’s first permanent appointment was at Greystone Heath Approved School in Warrington when he was 21 or 22 yrs old and it was alleged that he had assaulted children until 1987.
Laverack was jailed three months after the beginning of the Waterhouse Inquiry, which was Chaired by Huw Daniel’s colleague Sir Ronnie Waterhouse. The Waterhouse Inquiry famously excluded the abuse of children in care in north Wales at locations outside of north Wales or by people from outside of north Wales. So if, for example, witnesses talked about being taken to houses in Chester where they were abused by groups of men – which at least one witness did – Ronnie did not consider this in his conclusions. Likewise if men from outside of north Wales – perhaps the Tory MP for Chester or Jimmy Savile – arrived at children’s homes in north Wales and took the children away to be abused at another location, Ronnie didn’t consider that either.
Greystone Heath Approved School in Warrington was one of numerous children’s homes/schools in the north west of England which was part of a huge paedophile ring with links to other parts of the UK. Staff from those institutions also worked in locations in north Wales. Between 1994-97 a major joint investigation was conducted by Merseyside and Cheshire police forces. Social workers from Cheshire and Liverpool were brought in to investigate their own colleagues. The Merseyside and Cheshire Police, as well as senior social workers/managers from Cheshire and Liverpool, were linked to Dafydd’s empire. Cheshire Social Services were described as ‘one of the prime movers’ in the investigation but the Deputy Director David Whitehead made it clear that none of the County Council’s own homes were under investigation. The investigation resulted in a small number of social workers and teachers going to prison. Keith Laverack’s scalp seems to have been the biggest claimed. See post ‘The Mentor’ for details of some of those who got away and those who rocked up in north Wales.
After the Waterhouse Inquiry, there were many allegations that bottom feeding care workers and teachers had been scapegoated for the crimes of much more senior people, including public figures, who were never even named yet alone charged. Such allegations follow nearly every high profile paedophile trial; either that completely innocent people have been jailed or sex offenders at the bottom of the pyramid have taken the rap for the crimes of others.
As Dafydd et al in north Wales know, the really brilliant thing about securing convictions against anyone for sex offences or against mental health patients for Attacks On NHS Staff, is that the public are so horrified that should the person convicted ever complain of anything again, or had they ever complained of anything previously, no-one will believe a word that they say. Which is why Dafydd and the gang worked so hard over thirty years to secure convictions against me; why they tried to portray patient F as sexually questionable (see previous posts) and why a letter from someone who doesn’t exist – Sylvia Granalda – was sent to Brown’s senior managers at De Montfort University telling them that Brown was a ‘known paedophile’ who had ‘committed many offences’ when he worked at Aston University but ‘hadn’t been caught’. See post ‘A Nasty, Ludicrous Poison Pen Letter’. My, what a good laugh we had – if Brown hadn’t been caught, he wasn’t a known paedophile was he Dafydd/Elfed/Martin?
A Man Who In 1987 Heard Dafydd Threatening And Then Trying To Bribe Me:
Brown’s letters to Dafydd’s employers about the phone calls to which Brown was listening in were ignored.
A Lying Criminal Old Bastard:
The ‘hospital wing’ of Risley Remand Centre was full of Dafydd’s patients, many of whom were former kids in care. Risley Remand Centre was in Warrington, Cheshire.
The Mistress Of A Lying Criminal Old Bastard:
Lucille’s previous before she was Director of Gwynedd Social Services included employment as a children’s social worker in Cheshire. Even Ronnie Waterhouse admitted that Lucille knew about the abuse of children in the care of Gwynedd Social Services but failed to respond.
A Man Who Knows About Perverted Lusts:
Keith Laverack is a man who will have known many of the people who were involved in the abuse ring in the north west of England throughout the 1970s and 80s. He will have known about their links with rings in other parts of the UK. Keith later relocated to Cambridgeshire, where he eventually attained a senior position, so he will have known many of the people in that area who were involved with sexual abuse, as well as their links and associates. The Cambridgeshire shenanigans touched the lives of more than a few celebrity paedophiles because of the presence of Cambridge University in that region.
King, a Cambridge graduate, was jailed for historical sex offences against boys in 2001. King maintained that he knew many more people who had done exactly what he had and considerably worse to both boys and girls whom the police have never been near. Jonathan King is a tosser but I believe him with regard to that. Jonathan King also maintains that the judge who presided over his trial was known to him from his Cambridge days and was another person who had gay sex with teenaged boys.
Huw Daniel went to Jesus College, Oxford. Should any of Huw’s former peers wish to get in touch with info, I’d love to hear from them…
A 1965 clip from ‘Top of the Pops’ of King singing ‘Everyone’s Gone To The Moon’, which King recorded when he was still an undergrad, is available on You Tube and clearly shows Jimmy Savile having a knees up with the teenagers in the studio.
Jonathan King was a student at Trinity College, Cambridge. Rab Butler, Mr Tony Party throughout the middle of the 20th century who held just about ever ‘great office of state’ except that of PM, was Master of Trinity College, 1965-77.
Carlo studied at Trinity College, 1967-70 and Rab was his mentor and counsellor.
Rab was High Steward of Cambridge University, 1958-66 and High Steward of the City of Cambridge from 1963 until his death in 1982. Butler was also the first Chancellor of the University of Essex, 1966-82 and Chancellor of the University of Sheffield, 1959-77.
From 1972 to 1975, Butler Chaired the Committee on Mentally Abnormal Offenders, the Butler Committee, which proposed major reforms to the law and psychiatric services, not all of which have been implemented even today.
Baroness Jean Trumpington was a friend of Rab Butler and was the junior Health Minister under Thatch who appointed Jimmy Savile to the management task force of Broadmoor in 1986 (see posts ‘Socio-Political Context Of The North Wales Mental Health Services In The 1980s’ and ‘A Pretty Classy Piece Of Operation’). Trumpers was based in Cambridgeshire for much of her adult life, including during the 1970s. Her husband Alan Barker was Headmaster of The Leys School; Trumpers was a leading light in the Tory Party in the area and she was also Mayoress of Cambridge. Trumpers served as a magistrate but was obliged to resign for reasons which she was never very clear about but were something to do with her relationship with the Cambridge Rapist. Trumpers sat on numerous bodies, including the Social Services Committee; she was involved with ‘homes’ for unmarried mothers and provision for women with mental health problems; she served as a prison visitor; she was involved with Addenbrookes Hospital and was a friend of Thatch. See post ’95 Glorious Years!’
The fragrant Lady Mary Archer and her husband Tuppence lived and might still live in Cambridgeshire and Lady Mary is involved with Addenbrookes Hospital. In 1987, Tuppence won a libel case against the ‘Daily Star’ after it was alleged that in 1986 he had paid a prostitute for sex. Tuppence denied paying her for sex but it was later revealed that Tuppence had committed perjury during the libel trial, as had the Fragrant One. Tuppence however was the only one charged. He was jailed for perjury and conspiring to pervert the course of justice in 2001. The prostitute who was due to give evidence against Tuppence died as a result of a car crash very shortly before the trial. See post ‘Tuppence And His Fragrant Wife’.
The article which so upset Tuppence was published in the autumn of 1986 when Tuppence was Deputy Chairman of the Tory Party. As a result of the article, Tuppence resigned and was replaced as Deputy Chairman by Sir Peter Morrison. I was unlawfully detained by the gang in north Wales for the first time in the autumn of 1986, just weeks before the article about Tuppence appeared. My housemate Anne Vernon who knew what was happening to me at the hands of the Top Doctors was killed in a car crash in the spring of 1986. When I finally received copies of my medical records just a few years ago, I found copies of all the letters of complaint that I had written to Gwynedd Health Authority and other bodies. I had made some references to Tuppence’s trial – I had joked about it – and every reference that I had made to Tuppence had been underlined, but there was no indication as to who had done this. Gwynedd Health Authority had sent copies of all my correspondence to the Welsh Office’s crooked lawyer, Andrew Park.
A lot of people got very worried in 1986, because the net looked as if it was dangerously near to closing in on some molesters in high places. Professor Oliver Brooke, the Prof of Paediatrics at St George’s Hospital Medical School who was a key figure in a pan-European paedophile ring with links to Dafydd et al and many, many others, was arrested and in Dec 1986 jailed, two/three days after Dafydd et al had me unlawfully arrested and banged up in the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. The High Society Paedophile In Distress flare was sent up and Ollie was released from prison early on appeal by Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane in May 1987. The police who had worked long and hard to jail Ollie were furious, but they were dealing with a system which was rotten through and through. Ollie’s mates all remained in their very senior jobs at the top of their professions…
When I worked at St George’s, 1989-91, Ollie’s friend and colleague Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain articulated the view that Ollie was a wonderful man with a sad weakness and the whole business was most unfortunate. Had Ollie merely given in to temptation on a few occasions and exposed himself while clad in a dirty mac or even tried to resist his penchant for children I too would take Chamberlain’s view. Indeed many people who are dragged through the courts with the sound of the mob baying in their ears do fall into the ‘sad and lonely’ category. However Ollie was a leading figure in an international criminal gang, who was ruthlessly using his professional contacts to keep the whole lot of them out of trouble. Children were targeted, assaulted and trafficked into prostitution, including the sort of kids who were the last kids on the planet to be interested in sex or nightlife etc. Witnesses were killed and whistleblowers within the professional circles had their careers and lives ruined. Geoffrey Chamberlain was one of the people who was ensuring that whistleblowers’ careers came to an end.
The GMC and other professional bodies of those involved knew exactly how serious the crime was. They allowed it to continue and afforded the criminals complete protection.

If Keith Laverack did have any knowledge of those at High Table or indeed in other High Places who were doing what they should not have been doing, those people will have been most grateful to Huw Daniel for publicising Keith Laverack’s perverted lusts and banging him up for 18 years at the beginning of the Waterhouse Inquiry. Had Mr Laverack ever felt like Opening His Heart and grassing a few people up – because he wasn’t abusing those kids all by himself was he Huw? – the howls of outrage from all quarters would have drowned him out, as indeed they did Jonathan King.
Press reports of Keith Laverack’s trial also mentioned that Huw Daniel lifted an order previously imposed which the police had obtained preventing the identification of a number of other men who had been charged with sex offences against children as part of a big paedophile trial. The police had obtained the order because they were of the opinion that if the other men were identified at that stage, the bigger trial would be jeopardised.
Nice work Huw, you banged up one man for 18 years but ensured that everybody heard about his shocking perverted lusts, thus preventing anyone listening to any allegations that he might make in the future about his associates and then you did your best to sabotage a much bigger trial! The police must have felt like bludgeoning you to death you corrupt old bastard. They’ll have worked for years to have got that lot into court and witnesses lives will have been put at risk.
A round of applause for the No Nonsense Judge!
Throughout 1997, the mental health services worked very hard to have me arrested and charged – any offence would do, as long as it could be used to confirm how dangerous I was. The plans had begun long before then, back in 1994, when the arrests of the bottom feeders in north Wales/Cheshire began (see post ‘The Banality Of Evil’), escalated throughout 1995 and 1996 and then in Nov 1997, I was arrested on the basis of the perjury of Bridget Lloyd, an Angel, along with Patient F. We were acquitted in Jan 1998, only to find that Dr Tony Francis had written reports for the Court explaining that WHEN we were found guilty, F should be put on probation and I should be transferred to a secure psychiatric hospital (see post ‘A Solicitor’s Letter From North East Wales MIND’). I have now been told that the lawyers who asked Francis to write those reports were in breach of the law, because lawyers must not pre-empt court proceedings. The lawyers advising Francis et al up until then had been Tony Lane of Caernarfon and the crooked Welsh Office lawyer Andrew Park. See previous posts.
Although F and I were acquitted, there was no investigation into the perjury and a flat refusal to apologise to us. Francis and his colleagues robustly defended their decision to have us arrested.
It was recently made public that a former Bishop of Chester abused children for many years and was never stopped, although his activities were well-known. There were many busy bees, including wealthy, influential busy bees, in Cheshire for decades.
Because Huw Daniel always mouthed off when he was presiding, the press usually were given a few florid quotes for publication, even if they were rather misleading or simply lies. Daniel presided over another sex abuse trail in May 1997 which received coverage in the ‘Warrington Guardian’ on 30 May. It was reported that a Bruce McLean had ‘showed little emotion’ when Daniel had jailed him for nine years the previous week. According to Daniel, McLean was a ‘classic paedophile’ and Daniel said that many of McLean’s victims had come from troubled family backgrounds where they may have already been abused. Daniel told McLean: ‘You took advantage of the system within which you worked to have contact privately with young children… you knew it was wrong, they didn’t.’ Just as most of the psych patients and former kids in care had no idea of how many laws Dafydd et al routinely broke. Huw Daniel knew though, so one wonders why he never raised concerns about it.
McLean’s defence counsel, Anthony Gee QC, told Chester Crown Court that prison would be tough on McLean, 41, who had no previous convictions. But Daniel ‘attacked the former care worker for making victims relive their experiences in the witness box’: ‘You showed them no mercy at all’ he said, adding: ‘It will go hard on you in prison, but I have no sympathy with you at all.’
If for once in British criminal history, justice is ever done and Huw Daniel finds himself sitting in HMP Berwyn with anal injuries after encountering Mr Big in the showers, I’ll pay him a visit and remind him of that sentiment. I’ll look forward to that Huw!
McLean was convicted of 10 counts of indecent assault involving seven boys and a girl. McLean, formerly of King Street, Knutsford, was cleared of two other counts of indecent assault after Huw Daniel directed the jury to return not guilty verdicts due to insufficient evidence.
I have no idea whether Bruce McLean was guilty of any of the offences for which he was convicted or not, but I do know that I had not threatened to kill anyone when Daniel made it quite clear that he thought that he would be sending me to prison for threatening to kill Alun Davies. Well the evidence was overwhelming – at least eight Angels heard me do it. Except that every one of them was lying and Patricia Gaskell, the Ysbyty Gwynedd solicitor, had sent a memo around asking for even more of them to go down the police station and lie about me. There was also an occupational therapy assistant who made a statement about me threatening to kill Davies, whom I was told was ‘forced’ to make the statement.
In Feb 2000 Huw was in action once more. BBC News Wales reported that Daniel had jailed James McMorrow from Sligo, Eire, for three years after smuggling nearly 50 kilos of cannabis with a street value of more than £170k. The details of the case are impressive. McMorrow had been living in Spain for eight months and was paid £70 expenses and was due to receive another £3000 for successfully delivering the drugs to Dublin via Holyhead.
Huw Daniel said that there appeared to be an active drug trade between Spain and Ireland and it was clear that the defendant was a courier in a well-organised trip.
He was to be paid a substantial sum, he had contact numbers and a mobile telephone and there was a false passport.
‘This was carefully organised,’ Daniel said.
He had been caught thanks to the vigilance of Special Branch at Holyhead according to Daniel.
Prosecuting barrister Mr Andrew Green told how when interviewed the defendant said that he was in debt and there had been threats not only to himself, but also to his pregnant girlfriend and child.
Defending barrister Miss Anna Price said that her client had started a landscaping business in Spain and had borrowed money from those who were not terribly tolerant when it came to paying the money back.
Following the case, North Wales Police said it operated a ‘vigilant’ policy on drug trafficking.
‘A number of specific operations and routine checks have resulted in over £3.5 m worth of drugs seized in the last year,’ a police statement explained.
‘North Wales Police are aware of the potential use of Holyead port for illegal smuggling activities and work with other agencies in this country and abroad to prevent and detect offences.’
North Wales Police, Special Branch and Huw:
Dafydd’s been doing fake ID documents for years. He is also very good at giving his phone number(s) out and at answering his phone(s), even in the small hours, or when he is abroad conducting ‘clinics’ in France. He’s always available – not for NHS patients obviously, they languished in locked wards for years without so much of a glimpse of him – but if someone rings him at 2 am and he thinks that it might be one of his gang in trouble or a politician in distress having been arrested, dear old Dafydd will answer the phone.
It’s why Dafydd never changed his number and why he was in the phone book for years after he told the High Court in Liverpool in Nov 1994 that I was making his private and professional life ‘intolerable’ by my constant phone calls to him. Although the calls weren’t from me, as Dafydd explained himself in his affidavit, ‘the calls are from McDuff’. See posts ‘These Sharks Are Crap As Well’ and ‘The Banality Of Evil’. So why I received the injunction I never quite worked out. One call simply consisted of someone blowing a raspberry down the phone at Dafydd – or as Dafydd explained to the High Court, someone impersonating ‘the sound of a flatus’ – and another call involved a middle aged man telling Dafydd that it was me phoning and that I’d had a sex change. So Dafydd reported me to the North Wales Police who arrived at my house and threatened me with arrest. Although they could see that I hadn’t had a sex change. Perhaps they thought that I’d changed back again.
Brown and me were reminiscing recently and Brown said that what Top Docs involved in serious crime need to keep themselves out of trouble is celebrity patients, including politicians.
There was an Empowered Service User in Bethesda for years who was refused all Help from Gwynedd Social Services because they were Fed Up With Her. This Empowered Service User always maintained that when she was younger she’d been a groupie who had slept with Mick Jagger. See previous posts.
Bill Wyman: famous for picking up 13 year old Mandy Smith when he was in middle age and beginning a sexual relationship with her when she was 14. Mandy later said that she regretted her involvement with Mr Wyman.
Paula Yates’s very early career was as a model for Penthouse. Paula met St Bob when she was, by her own description, a groupie. Paula spent her early years in north Wales (see previous posts). She lived in Llandudno and then in Rowen, the village in which Lord Wyn Roberts – Thatcher’s Minister in the Welsh Office – who served as Dafydd’s umbrella for decades also lived (see post ‘The Cradle Of Filth’). Paula went to school in north Wales as well.
Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain of St George’s Hospital Medical School, who was concealing the paedophile/trafficking gang in south London of which his friend and colleague Professor Oliver Brooke was a key player as well as Dafydd’s gang in north Wales, was Cilla Black’s Top Doctor. See post ‘Now Then…’ and other posts. Cilla was also a personal friend of Chamberlain. That’s the Cilla who was the song bird from Liverpool when Dafydd was a young man with a spring in his step and building up his empire in the north west of England. See posts ‘My Arse – It’s Tatifilarious’ and ‘These Sharks Are Crap As Well’. Cilla was an enthusiastic supporter of Thatch and was well connected in Tory circles.
I also mentioned to Brown that I am certain that, a la Thatch, Dafydd was boosted up on amphetamines, hence his ability to undertake such a punishing schedule, crashing around in police stations and in Denbigh in the early hours. Brown suggested that Dafydd might have been fuelled by cocaine. Dafydd could have prescribed either for himself but his nose has never rotted away – although it was impressively red as a result of all the booze – so I suspect amphetamine was Dafydd’s preferred pick-me-up.
The North Wales Police have worked really hard for many years to avoid busting Dafydd. The GMC have ignored complaint after serious complaint about Dafydd since the 1970s, including abuse and neglect of patients leading to death; unlawful imprisonment; financial exploitation of patients; dishonesty; perjury; sexual exploitation of patients; bribery and corruption. If the GMC were to be forced to make public their file on Dafydd, it would make Harold Shipman look like a minor shoplifter. The GMC had received a couple of complaints about Shipman; they have received scores about Dafydd. Incredulous people have always remarked of Dafydd ‘he just does whatever he wants and no-one, no-one stops him’. It is quite true and the buck stops at every Chairman and Chief Exec of the GMC that there has been for decades.
Another case over which Huw Daniel presided was that of a child abduction in August 2002. BBC News Wales reported that Charles Kenneth Nicholls, 41, had appeared at Mold Crown Court, charged with abducting an 11 year old girl from near Wrexham. Nicholls appeared in Court accompanied by an Angel, as a result of being a patient at Ty Llewelyn, the secure psychiatric unit at Llanfairfechan in Gwynedd, which at that time was under the management of the North West Wales NHS Trust. The senior NHS manager responsible for Ty Llewellyn was Alun Davies. Nicholls had, by the time that he had appeared before Daniel, been transferred to Ty Llewellyn by the Home Office under the Mental Health Act. The judge responsible for Mental Health Review Tribunals at the time was one Huw Daniel. It was in 2002 that Davies and the perjurers of the North Wales Wales NHS Trust claimed to have been witness to me threatening to kill Davies.
Here’s an Interesting Fact. Before I was sentenced to the maximum possible for telling Alun Davies’s secretary that he was a fat idiot, Huw Daniel deferred sentencing for a psychiatric report on me to be compiled by the perjurers of the Hergest Unit. Daniel said that he would imprison me for contempt of court if I did not ‘co-operate’ with it. When I returned for sentencing Daniel hit the fucking roof because there was no court report. The Hergest hadn’t compiled one or invited me to ‘co-operate’ at any point.
So what went wrong then Huw you fat crook? Did someone at the Hergest Unit get cold feet because they knew that the whistleblower was onto them and had threatened to expose them? Or were the ‘excellent’ perjurers of the Hergest Unit so grossly incompetent that they failed to carry out the last bit of the plan and recommend that I should be transferred to a secure unit, because that is what the plan was wasn’t it?
You have questions to answer Daniel and I’m happy to call you a bent malignant bastard online because I now have a mountain of documents which makes it very clear what was going on behind closed doors at that time.
David Blunkett was Home Secretary throughout it all, under Miranda as PM. It was Michael Beloff QC, Cherie’s colleague, who in his capacity as legal adviser for Municipal Mutual, ensured that the Jillings Report on the abuse of kids in the care of Clwyd County Council from 1974 onward was completely suppressed and was not even made available to the County Councillors (see post ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake’). Municipal Mutual also insured the North Wales Police. The Chief Constable of the North Wales Police, David Owen, refused to co-operate with the first police investigation into the possible presence of a paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire. When Miranda was PM, he and Cherie entertained Michael Beloff at Chequers.
In 2001, the year following the publication of the Waterhouse Report, Miranda appointed David Hanson, the Labour MP for Delyn, as his PPS (see post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part II’). Before becoming an MP, David Hanson had been a Councillor in Cheshire, as had his wife Margaret. Margaret Hanson had also worked as a children’s and family senior social worker for Cheshire County Council. Margaret Hanson is currently the Vice-Chair of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board. The Chairman of the Betsi is Dr Peter Higson, who worked as a clinical psychologist at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh, later became general manager of that institution and then was appointed a senior manager for the mental health services for the wider north Wales region. While Higson occupied those posts, patients were illegally imprisoned in a dungeon at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh. Higson’s sister Ruth Hussey is a Top Doctor, who ended up as Chief Medical Officer for Wales. David Hanson’s early career was with Scope – allegations concerning the abuse of residents in Scope facilities have been made.
If any readers know who Higson’s and Hussey’s parents were I’d love to hear. They grew up in Llanwrst, which is a hub of the petite bourgeoisie who have caused such chaos in north Wales and wherever there is an abuser who needs protecting there is Higson and Hussey. Furthermore who did Hussey marry?
When Huw Daniel jailed Keith Loverack and sabotaged the bigger trial, Miranda knew that he’d be in No 10 in two months time. When Huw Daniel jailed Bruce McLean, Miranda was newly resident in No 10.
Tough on crime, tough on the causes of crime!
BBC News Wales reported that it was alleged that Nicholls had abducted the girl from her home and released her outside. Nicholls pleaded not guilty to unlawfully taking and carrying the girl away and to a charge of affray.
Huw Daniel ordered that the trial should be held at Mold Crown Court. Which is interesting, because when I was charged with threatening to kill Alun Davies, Daniel just happened to be the judge on the occasion of the first hearing, yet he made a point of demanding that my trial should be listed for Mold Crown Court and that he should be the judge to preside over it.
So what was going on at Mold Crown Court that so endeared that institution to Huw Daniel? The Crown Court at which dear old Ronnie Waterhouse was a regular and at which some of Ronnie’s friends and relations had been/were at that time responsible for administrating?
Experience has taught me that when legal/judicial corruption is at work on the Chester and Wales Circuit, great care is taken to ensure that the defendant who is to be stitched up appears in the right court in front of the right judge, even if this means that the court and the judge have to be changed, as they were when Gwynedd Social Services tried to have me imprisoned in 1990 on the basis of the perjury of the Arfon Community Mental Health Team. In that case, great efforts were made to ensure that I appeared in Chester before Justice John Roch, although my barrister wasn’t told that the court and judge had been changed (see post ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’).
John Roch was must been the most excellent paedophiles’ friend because he later became Lord Justice Roch.
Legal authorities: Should anyone ever get round to jailing Huw Daniel, when he subsequently appeals, can you ensure that it is not Lord Justice Roch who hears the appeal? One way of preventing this would be to prosecute and imprison Roch for his own collusion with serious crime in 1990. Diolch yn fawr.
John Roch has also found his way into the Queen’s Privy, along with many other paedophiles’ friends.
Where justice is rarely upheld at Chester:
I mentioned in the comments following my post ‘Tan yn Llyn’ that at least one young man who had burgled Huw Daniel’s house near Tal-y-Bont, Bethesda, was never charged. The young man made a full confession in the police station – presumably Bangor Police Station – in front of someone with whom I was very friendly back in the mid-1990s, who told me that the scenes in the police station were quite extraordinary and very, very funny. The young man in question had turned over Daniel’s house and helped himself to a few interesting things, including a camera. I’m not sure when the burglary had happened, it was probably in the late 1980s.
The police were interviewing the young man and were trying to ascertain whether he had gone equipped for burglary. Which he had. He had been found with a screwdriver on him as well as other tools and the police officer asked ‘why did you have those tools with you?’ To which the young man replied ‘because I’m a fokkin professional aren’t I?’ A mental health professional was also present at the interview – it was either a Top Doc or a clin psy, I’m not sure which – who repeatedly told the person under arrest that he was here to help him. So the mental health professional was asked by the arrested person if he could get him a nice pair of trainers… The upshot was that the young man under arrest made it very plain indeed that he had gone to Huw Daniel’s house equipped to burgle and indeed he had burgled. He didn’t give a bugger about being arrested, because he had already served a stint in Risley Remand Centre where he had been treated so brutally that nothing could frighten him any more.
My friend had gone to visit him in Risley just after the screws had kicked the living daylights out of him. He was visibly injured when my friend went to visit him. She challenged a thug of a screw who yelled at her that he hated the little bastards and yes they would give them a kicking. My friend didn’t make formal representation to the Prison Service – she realised that would be a complete waste of time – but she did make damn sure that a lot of people knew that she had witnessed the state of the young man whom she visited in Risley.
So imagine her surprise when the young man was never charged with burgling Huw Daniel. The matter was quietly forgotten about and instead a referral to the mental health services was made. The young man in question rattled around the ‘services’ for a while until, in the early 1990s, Dafydd suddenly took an interest in him and he was told that he was Dafydd’s patient. By this time the young man’s life was in chaos and he had developed a serious drug problem.
My friend was very worried about some of the things that were happening in this young man’s consultations with Dafydd, including Dafydd telling him that he loved him. She tried to persuade him not to maintain contact with Dafydd but then she found that Dafydd’s patient was receiving a few benefits from being a patient of Dafydd’s, as well as of course whichever drugs he requested. The young man had been paid to appear in a TV programme and say that if Dafydd retired he would never be able to cope. This was in about 1994, when Dafydd had become so embarrassing that even the NHS in north Wales wanted to see the back of him. Dafydd received wall to wall good PR from just about every media outlet in Wales – Kilroy, the Vincent Kane Debates, S4C, BBC Wales, all the local papers, everybody really – and the message was the same: Dafydd is so overwhelmingly loved by his patients that they will never manage without him and here they are telling us that on camera. Er yes, because they were paid to do so…
Dafydd ‘retired’ in 1995, except that he didn’t retire, he left the employ of the NHS clutching the contract for him and his charity CAIS to provide substance abuse services for the whole of north Wales. Dafydd expanded that empire considerably over the following years and was gradually joined by his old muckers such as Lucille as they too ‘retired’ (see post ‘The Evolution Of A Drugs Baron?’).
During the Waterhouse Inquiry, the younger brother of the man who burgled Huw Daniel’s house died. He was 18 and a student at Coleg Menai. Unlike his older brother, he had never been in trouble with the law. He was taken ill at home and his mum rang Bethesda surgery. She was told by Dr Paul Nickson that he had flu. A few hours later he was even worse. His mum rang the surgery again and was told by Dr Gareth Jones that he agreed with Dr Nickson, all he needed was two paracetamol. Very soon afterwards, his parents took him to Ysbyty Gwynedd, not wanting to waste their time with Bethesda surgery again. As the young man entered Ysbyty Gwynedd he told everyone that he couldn’t see anything anymore, he had gone blind. He died shortly after. He had meningitis.
The following day there was a scene in Bethesda surgery. The dead boy’s mum walked into the waiting room and yelled at those waiting ‘Dying? Well just take a couple of paracetamol.’ She was chucked out and Dr Gareth Jones started shouting at the patients that it wasn’t his bloody fault. The dead boy’s mum subsequently tried to raise her concerns about the manner of her son’s death, but was told by the Top Docs that she was just upset because she felt guilty. Bethesda surgery certainly didn’t, they couldn’t give a stuff. The bad feeling towards the boy’s mum from the Top Docs continued for quite some time, because she did insist on doing things like having a gravestone with his photograph on it erected and she placed In Memoriam notices in the local papers. The Top Docs told people that she was making a right bloody fuss.
As for the lady who had been in the police station that day with the brother of the boy who subsequently died and witnessed the extraordinary scenes, she developed mental health problems – but not long term ones – and in the mid-1990s was referred to the Hergest Unit. Where two of her neighbours, Lena and Jim Henry, were employed as Angels. Lena and Jim were good enough to gossip about her to third parties to such an extent that she decided to move from the area, so she put her house up for sale at a reduced price to enable her to move away quickly. Lena and Jim bought it, after telling people that they’d always liked the house but couldn’t afford it when they first moved to that street.
It was shortly after my friend moved away that I was arrested and charged with threatening to kill Alun Davies. Lena Henry was by that time the senior nurse running the Hergest Unit and was one of those who perjured herself over the matter of my alleged threats to Davies. That was the third time that Lena had perjured herself within a few months; she had previously had me arrested on two other occasions, only for it to be revealed that she was lying. In one of her statements, she mentioned my friend who had witnessed the scene in the police station that day with Simon’s brother. There was no reason at all for Lena Henry to mention my friend in the statement, my friend knew nothing about Lena’s repeated efforts at having me imprisoned and was not involved in any way. But at least the North Wales Police knew the identity of yet another witness to Dafydd’s wrongdoing, to the violence of the staff at Risley and of course to whatever went on at the police station on the day that Simon’s brother was interviewed regarding the matter of Huw Daniel’s house being burgled.
So Huw Daniel knew that I had probably heard about that interview at the police station when he was looking forward to sentencing me to prison for threatening to kill Alun Davies.
Lena and Jim Henry were also two of the Angels who knew patient F, who, after challenging social workers about the abuse of boys in Ty Newydd children’s home in Bangor, had in 1986 been framed for drugs offences and arson, unlawfully imprisoned in Risley, then unlawfully detained in the North Wales Hospital Denbigh for a year by Dafydd (see post ‘It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not Arf’). Some years later when Lena and Jim were employed at the Hergest Unit, this man’s child was hijacked and handed over by Gwynedd Social Services to a family of predators containing two child abusers with the knowledge and collusion of the Hergest Unit (see post ‘It’s All About Protecting Children’).
Lena Henry had been a student Angel at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh in the mid-1980s. She supervised the ‘occupational therapy’ of someone I know who, at the age of 19, found herself in Denbigh. The occupational therapy in question was packing Dr Whites in boxes. It was so bad that when she told me about this that we ended up laughing so much that she suggested that if we carried on taking trips down memory lane we’d be in need of incontinence pads rather than Dr Whites. I’m sure that Lena would be happy to deliver the incontinence pads to our respective houses and we could get packing. For no pay of course. I’ve got a PhD and the packer of Dr Whites ended up with a Masters degree, but hey we’re Empowered Service Users rather than Trained Angels, what would we want with a salary?
Lena is keen on higher degrees for the Angels at Hergest. She told Angels who struggled with their Training to enrol for Masters degrees even when they didn’t want to because ‘it will make the Hergest Unit look better’. Fortunately for Lena, even Angels without A levels yet alone first degrees were accepted onto Masters courses as a result of a most helpful attitude on the part of Bangor University’s School of Healthcare Sciences. It was only the semi-literate perjuring Angels of north Wales who were viewed so positively by the School of Healthcare Sciences. A mole forwarded me an e mail written by a highly competent Angel from elsewhere, to which a very impressive CV was attached, politely asking if she could apply for a place on a Masters at the School of Healthcare Sciences at Bangor. She was told to piss off.
The biggest laugh is that Denbigh will have been paid by whoever manufactured Dr Whites for my friend and the other patients’ free labour in packing the Dr Whites. Who on earth chose that line of occupational therapy for patients? In other places patients undertook educational, stimulating tasks such as packing paper towels, but at Denbigh it was Dr Whites. Dafydd must have worked doubly hard to land that commission. He probably rang around all the different sanitary towel manufacturers asking if Denbigh could take on the contract.
Patients in dungeons, packing Dr Whites as occupational therapy, the babies of people who had dared report the abuse of children in care abducted… This happened in the 1980s and 90s, not in the 19th century. The people who oversaw it all recently occupied/are still occupying the highest positions in the NHS/Social Services and are Gov’t advisers.
One person who appeared on the BBC Kane Debates along with Dafydd was Paul Flynn, the Labour MP for Newport West. Paul Flynn made very much more sense on TV than Dafydd; Dafydd banged on about cannabis psychosis and Paul Flynn challenged him over such idiocy. Although I appreciated Paul Flynn refusing to join in the panic over Reefer Madness, it was many years before I discovered that Paul Flynn knew Dafydd of old; he knew that Dafydd was involved with serious organised crime as well as with the most shocking abuse of patients, yet Paul Flynn has never said a word about any of it.
In the Oct 1974 General Election, Paul Flynn stood as the Labour candidate for Denbigh. Ieuan Wyn Jones was the Plaid candidate, who also knew all about Dafydd, as did the Angel to whom Ieuan was married (see post ‘Tan yn Llyn’). Flynn didn’t get elected to Parliament until 1987, when he won Newport West from the Tory incumbent Mark Robinson, who won the seat in 1983. Mark Robinson was one of those who wrote to me refusing to take action after I complained about the north Wales mental health services in 1985, in Robinson’s capacity as a minion at the Welsh Office. So Paul Flynn nipped into Newport West as a result of the election upon which the Windbag was pinning all his hopes and had caused the Windbag to toady like mad to NHS workers. It was during the run up to the 1987 General Election that Tony Francis, Dafydd et al made all those elaborate plans to trap me, frame me and imprison me immediately after the election (see eg. posts ‘Workers’ Play Time’ and ‘Security, Security’).
In 1992, Mark Robinson resurfaced as the MP for Somerton and Frome, when those people in Somerset who knew what was happening to me in north Wales became so affluent! See posts ‘Those Who Are Ready To Serve’ and ‘Upper Class Twit Of The Year – Shooting Themselves’. Robinson came from a west country family near Bristol – as did Dafydd’s partner-in-crime Dr D.G.E. Wood – and had worked at the UN before becoming an MP. After he was elected for Somerton and Frome, Robinson became PPS to paedophiles’ friends Baroness Linda Chalker and then Douglas Hurd (see previous posts). From 1987–1995 Robinson was a Director of Leopold Joseph, the Merchant Bank and from 1988–92 he was a Member of the Board of the Commonwealth Development Corporation.
As for Paul Flynn, he grew up in Cardiff, attended St Illtyd’s RC School and then went on to University College Cardiff. He worked as a chemist in the steel industry, where he remained until 1983. After a year as a broadcaster on Gwent Community Radio, in 1984 Flynn became a researcher for the MEP Llew Smith – who had to give up that seat in 1994 because the Windbag’s wife wanted it – and remained as such until his election to the Commons in 1987.
Flynn was a member of Newport Borough Council, 1972–1981 and of Gwent County Council, 1974–1982. Professor Kenneth Rawnsley, the Top Doctor at Cardiff University who protected Dafydd et al for decades, was married to Top Doctor Elinor Kapp, who worked as a child psychiatrist in Gwent. Elinor was involved in one of the charidees founded by the child molesting Labour MP for Cardiff West and Speaker of the House, George Thomas. See post ‘The Discovery Of A Whole New Galaxy…’.
Flynn joined the front bench under the Windbag in 1988 as a spokesman for health and social security and then for social security in 1989. While he ignored the screams coming from north Wales and all those bodies of witnesses which were turning up.
Paul Flynn Chaired the Broadcasting Council of Wales so perhaps he had something to do with all Dafydd’s TV appearances.
Here are the waifs who sang the song ‘I’d Do Anything’ in the musical ‘Oliver!’
Other favourites from ‘Oliver!’ were ‘Boy For Sale’, ‘I Shall Scream’, ‘That’s Your Funeral’, ‘Coffin Music’, ‘Oliver’s Escape’ (yes, Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane let him out of prison on appeal), ‘Be Back Soon’, You’ve Got To Pick a Pocket Or Two’ and ‘Who Will Buy?’.
Fagin, the conniving career criminal who takes in homeless children, leads them into crime and then lets them take the rap for everything:

Dr. Grimwig, a friend of Mr. Brownlow. He assesses Oliver’s condition at the beginning of Act II, deeming him fit to go outside:
Why anyone remained deluded about Huw Daniel’s integrity or even intelligence after March 1985 I do not know. That was the month in which the Rev Emyr Owen of Tywyn, Gwynedd was imprisoned for four years for defiling corpses; precisely cutting the penes off of three dead bodies, feeding one penis to the sea gulls and injecting another with hot water to make it go all erect like, Emyr being a man of perverted lusts. Huw Daniel was the prosecuting barrister who related this fairytale to the Court. Huw Daniel might believe that a severed penis will go erect if it is injected with hot water but anyone with a knowledge of Bachelor’s level anatomy and physiology would be able to tell him that it wouldn’t. The penis would need a blood supply attached to a living human being and even if an alternative to that were found – some sort of complex mechanical replacement – an injection of water into a severed penis would destroy the cells as a result of osmosis. So Emyr most definitely confessed to something that he did not do and could not have done. A psychiatrist’s report was involved in Emyr’s trial. Had this psychiatrist not passed his early exams in anatomy and physiology? I think we should be told, because a Top Doc who doesn’t understand basic physiology, biochem and anatomy is a dangerous thing.
Emyr was a man who was suspected of being gay. He came from Blaenau Ffestiniog so he would be familiar with those we know and love and furthermore he was the chaplain to the High Sheriff. So he knew how corrupt the whole lot of them were. No wonder he was imprisoned for Perverted Lusts and ‘Orrible Crimes, which came from the imagination of Huw Daniel.
See previous posts for more information regarding the farcical framing of the Rev Emyr Owen.
Was Emyr Owen the first Innocent Man Beyond Doubt whom Huw Daniel sent to prison? Or were there other victims, who, no matter to what they confessed, simply could not have committed the crimes because the crimes were a biological impossibility?
The 15th century European witch hunters guide the Malleus Maleficarum, written by Heinrich Kramer and Jacob Sprenger, maintained that witches kept penes in nests and fed them on oats.
OK Huw, are the affidavits ready? The ones which have been sworn by numerous Top Docs and Angels stating that they have found those nests of penes that I keep and that they’ve even seen me going off in the morning to feed the willies their oats? Feeding time is at 7 am, they have a snack for lunch, then I give the willies their main meal at 8 pm. Just so that you know!
When I was an undergrad, before I knew anything about Chester being the hub of a bunch of corrupt lawyers and judges and an associated gang of paedophiles, Brown and I used to like visiting that city. There was a bookshop with a friendly woman in there with whom we used to chat, a shop selling hippyish clothes called Lee Louise where I used to buy bits and pieces and also a shop selling Goth and alternative gear. The shop with the Goth stuff in was manned by two young women who certainly looked interesting but one day when we were in there burrowing around we heard them discussing one of their friends who had gone to study at a ‘Marxist College’ and the two young women were outraged by this. They were observing that their friend’s mind had been turned by reading ‘The Guardian’ and now he really was studying crap. Whereupon they got out their ‘Daily Mail’. It was so bad that Brown and I got the hell out of there and Brown observed that their ideology was rather more conservative than their appearance.
However during the conversation between the ‘Daily Mail’ reading Goths, it became clear to us that the Marxist College under discussion was Coleg Harlech. Harlech wasn’t what I would call a Marxist College, but it was unique in that it offered funded residential places to students who had come from backgrounds where they had not had opportunities to undertake Higher Education. Harlech was living Miranda’s dream of widening participation long before Miranda was doing his ‘Education, Education, Education’ bit.
Since I began this blog, I’ve been told that our trips to Chester were another place where Dafydd’s gang had clocked Brown and me. Whether the ‘Daily Mail’ reading Goths were yet more undercover officers helping Dafydd and the gang rather than their targets I don’t know, but I do know someone who was at Harlech at the same time as the gang was targeting me at Bangor. It was a girl whom I’d known from Bridgwater, but she was a few years older than me, Karen Knowledon. When we were all in Somerset Karen had known Stuart Beauchamp, the man who lived in our village whom I have now been told was linked to Dafydd’s gang. Karen shared a house with Stuart but she fell out with him, moved out and then a few years later went to Harlech. Karen had a sister, Beverley, who knew the same crowd. When she was at Harlech, Karen was taught by Ron Ipophen who later became a lecturer in the School of Healthcare Sciences aka the School of Nursing at Bangor University. I don’t know what Ron knew about Dafydd’s gang – Ron’s colleagues at the School of Nursing knew a great deal about Dafydd, indeed Ruhi Behi, the Head of the School of Nothing, had previously worked as an Angel at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh – but Ron will have known something. Ron Ipophen lived in Sin City, Chester.
There were two very good historians who worked at Harlech, but like Bangor and Aberystwyth, the wider institution was run by the paedophiles’ friends. See previous posts.
Well you can all fess up, not because I want people like Stuart and Karen to end up in prison, but because I want Huw fucking Daniel to be held to account. The world had had enough of people with not much money and not much power being banged up because they did something that they should not have many years ago, while bastards like Huw Daniel receive rounds of applause for Getting Tough. Perhaps someone would like to cram Huw Daniel, D.G.E. Wood, Peter Higson and Ruth Hussey all in the same cell with one chamber pot between them, while Martin Jones, Elfed Roberts, Lucille and Dafydd can all be detained in one of Dafydd’s own ‘care homes’. Edwina Hart and Mark Drakeford can be booked into Ysbyty Gwynedd for the treatment for their next painful, life-threatening condition. I’ll record their groans of agony when the Angels refuse them any pain relief and tell them that their attitude is all wrong. It will be guaranteed that no complaint that they make will be investigated, so there’ll be a happy ending.
In Dec 1999, two months before the Waterhouse Report was published, an article appeared in ‘The Guardian’, entitled ‘Touched By Evil’, which was written by Anne Garvey and presented the stories of some of the people who had been abused by Keith Laverack. Anne Garvey mentioned that her husband was a lawyer who was representing the survivors. I am in no way belittling what people went through at the hands of Keith Laverack and I am glad that Anne Garvey’s husband represented at least some of the survivors. However, Anne Garvey’s husband and no doubt Anne Garvey herself know that because of the endemic institutional corruption in medicine and the law, Keith Laverack is absolutely not the biggest problem. The people who are the biggest problem are The Guardian’s bread and butter and ‘The Guardian’ will not publish a word about them. ‘The Guardian’ has for decades provided acres of free PR for people who’s hands are awash with blood while delighting as another ‘career paedophile’ is jailed thanks to the New Attitude towards sexual abuse.
The abusers of north Wales really love ‘The Guardian’, I used to watch them reading it and discussing the insightful articles. Abusive mental health professionals are very keen on ‘The Guardian’ sweetheart Peter Beresford, the Only Professor Who’s An Out Service User, they lap him up. ‘The Guardian’ is a publication which is aimed at NHS workers, social workers and people working in education. ‘The Guardian’ has never got anywhere near to admitting how serious and widespread the abuse of vulnerable people is by the welfare services and how massive the collusion with it is. Everyone at all levels of the system colludes. Students notice it early in their courses. They report serious abuse/neglect and they are met with a tutor umming and aahing and telling the students that they are using ‘strong words’ if the students mention ‘abuse’ or ‘neglect’ and that they are only students without a full understanding of the complexities involved in caring for this client group…The usual outcome is that nothing is done and if the student expresses dissatisfaction at the lack of action, their card is quietly but surely marked…
After Huw Daniel served Dafydd and the Paedophiles In High Places so loyally from the bench, Huw was appointed Lord Lieutenant of Gwynedd! Lilibet’s representative! That’s why he got to dress up in this ludicrous outfit.
When the old bastard stepped down in 2014, Lilibet appointed Edmund Seymour Bailey as Lord Lieutenant. Edmund had been Huw’s Deputy Lieutenant. Edmund has previously served as President of NFU Cymru and was High Sheriff of Gwynedd, 2012-13. So Edmund knows Bob Parry, the dodgy Chairman of Anglesey County Council, who is also a big wig in the NFU as well as a mate of Ieaun Wyn Jones’s (see post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’).
Now here’s a salutary tale for those who gave Huw Daniel a round of applause in Chester Crown Court after he jailed Keith Laverack and waxed lyrical about Laverack’s perverted lusts.
In July 1996, a Llandudno man, Howard Hughes, was jailed for the rape and murder of seven year old Sophie Hook, who had been camping in her cousin’s garden in Llandudno when she disappeared in July 1995. Her body was subsequently discovered washed up in the sea. There was no forensic evidence against Howard Hughes. He had come under suspicion simply because he had been seen on the footpath near to the garden in which Sophie had been camping. Howard Hughes would have been noticed because he has a medical condition which has caused him to grow very tall; he’s heading toward 7ft. He has learning disabilities and cannot read and write.
Hughes began having problems in his early teens. He was from a middle class family and his father found it very difficult to accept that Howard was not going to achieve academically and lead the sort of life that would be expected for someone from his socio-economic background. Howard became involved with petty crime and by the time that he was convicted of Sophie’s murder his record of crime was appalling. Had the gang in north Wales succeeded in every one of their attempts to fit me up, my criminal record would look similar to that of Hughes’s. But I’m not a man with SEN who is nearly 7ft tall.
Howard Hughes had been in Bryn Estyn and in Garth Angharad, the personal prison of the paedophile gang where there was a ‘case conference’ held about me, by a man whom I had never heard of, attended by people who had never met me, while I sat in a lecture theatre in a London medical school as a postgrad, utterly unaware that this ‘case conference’ was being held. The conclusion was that I was extremely dangerous and should be placed in a high security institution. I knew nothing about this case conference until two years ago when my lawyer forwarded on my full medical files that had been witheld for decades. See post ‘The Night Of The (Dr Chris) Hunter’ for details.
Everyone involved with Howard Hughes throughout his life had been Of Those who we know and love. The whole lot of them. They had ‘assessed’ him, ‘treated’ him, ‘diagnosed’ him, arrested him, heard his confessions and indeed written them, because Howard is illiterate.
When Sophie went missing Howard was arrested what with lurking on that footpath, but the police had to release him because they could find no evidence at all that he had anything to do with Sophie’s disappearance. Howard was re-arrested hours later when the police searched his house in his absence and most conveniently found child porn. The North Wales Police seemed to know that they were looking for a man like Howard as soon as Sophie disappeared. They were after a ‘brute’, indeed a ‘big brute’.
The pathologist who gave evidence at Howard’s trial was Dr Donald Wayte. Wayte is married to Avril Wayte, who is a Trustee of Dafydd’s charity CAIS and who is employed to run the chaotic path labs of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board. Donald retired some time ago much to everyone’s relief. Donald’s career highlights included giving media interviews many years ago in which he stated that in most cases of cot death, the children had been murdered by their parents and taking a 15 year old boy who was the son of one of Donald’s friends into work with him for a few days because the teenager ‘wanted to know what goes on in a hospital’. There was no discussion re ethical issues, old Donald just took him into work with him. Corpses and all.
At Howard Hughes’s trial Wayte made a number of comments that were pure speculation but which he presented as fact. By then the only evidence against Hughes was the statement made by a child sex offender who was in prison with Hughes when Hughes was on remand, in which he stated that Hughes confessed to sexually assaulting and killing Sophie. The statement reads like the fantasy of a child sex offender. Howard Hughes was described as a ‘fiend’ by the judge at his trial.
Howard Hughes has always denied having any involvement with Sophie’s disappearance, assault or murder. After Howard Hughes was jailed, David Blunkett, the then Home Secretary, increased his tariff. Hughes is one of only three prisoners in the UK serving such a long sentence. See previous posts for the full details re Howard Hughes and Sophie’s murder.
There is much concern that Hughes is the subject of a serious miscarriage of justice.
Howard Hughes alleged that he was abused in Bryn Estyn and claimed compensation. His application was rejected, on the grounds that he was a convicted sex offender. One man who was very angry with Howard’s claim for compensation was Alan Guinn, the one time Mayor of Llandudno.
In March 2000, Alan Guinn was quoted in an article in ‘The Guardian’ as saying that those who ‘suffered’ at Bryn Estyn deserved compensation, but not Howard Hughes. Alan Guinn might like to take a long hard look at just about every person who said that they had been abused in Bryn Estyn. Virtually every single one of them has been denounced as a thieving, lying addict or worse who ‘doesn’t deserve’ compensation. They have the criminal records to prove it. Kids in care and psych patients in north Wales who complained about what happened to them somehow seemed to end up with criminal records which not only showed that they were ne’er do wells who couldn’t be believed, but also demonstrated that they didn’t deserve compensation either even when they had unquestionably been mistreated. There’s even a woman with a PhD who falls into that category, ooh she’s the worst of the lot, she’s really dangerous because she’s Just So Clever. You can tell she’s a bad lot, she was arrested constantly.
Alan Guinn will have known exactly how Dafydd et al conducted themselves in many situations, even if he didn’t witness events in Bryn Estyn.
A quick google search of Alan Guinn reveals him to be closely associated with many we know and love, indeed so many that I haven’t got time to detail them here, although I might return to this in a future post. It is worth my while mentioning one man who is in the Llandudno Rotary Club with Alan Guinn, Peter Tivy Jones. Tivy Jones is a retired obstetrician/gynaecologist who worked for decades at the St David’s Laundry in Bangor, where babies were illegally removed from women, where babies died or were born disabled as a result of cock-ups by Tivy Jones’s colleagues but the whole business was concealed and distraught bereaved parents were intimidated into silence by staff (see post ‘The BMA And It’s Ethics’). Tivy Jones was a man who refused to speak to private patients because ‘Mr Tivy Jones doesn’t like private patients’. So readers unacquainted with the Madness Of North Wales might be surprised to find that Mr Tivy Jones nonetheless accepted private patients along with their money. He just refused to speak to them, even when performing examinations. I know because I was friends with a lady in Beaumaris who had the Tivy Jones Private Patient Experience. If only she’d told me, I could have warned her not to waste her time or money with any of them.
Tivy Jones was also one of the Top Docs in north Wales who made it impossible for women throughout the region during the 1970s and 80s to access NHS abortions and forced them into the hands of the dangerous ‘private’ abortionist in Chester (see post ‘It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not Arf’). Tivy Jones also probably knew about the gynaecologist in Ysbyty Gwynedd who sexually assaulted female patients; about the school girl who was unlawfully allowed into the hospital to observe gynaecological procedures; and about the psych patient who was passed around the junior gynaecologists of Ysbyty Gwynedd in the early 1990s, became pregnant twice and was coerced into terminations by the gynaecologists who had made her pregnant who arranged the abortions themselves. When she resisted their pressure to have terminations, the assistance of the mental health services was sought. See post ‘Another Case Of Not Knowing?’. After the young woman agreed to terminate her pregnancies, she was refused all NHS care in north Wales and told to move elsewhere if she wanted Help. Drs Tony and Sadie Francis knew about this case – they were among the Top Docs who refused to treat her – as did Dr Lyndon Miles, who was the young woman’s GP. The Dr Lyndon Miles who is a mate of Edwina Hart’s and who is now Chairman of St David’s Hospice in Llandudno; when Alun Davies finally waved good-bye to the smouldering wreck which was the Hergest after more than a decade of his mismanagement, he became Chief Executive of St David’s Hospice (see post ‘The CEOs of St David’s Hospice’) . Lyndon was previously Vice-Chair of Gwynedd Local Health Board and in the 1980s he worked with the people traffickers at the Student Health Centre at Bangor University.
Peter Tivy Jones is now gracing India with his Top Doc’s wisdom, but then a number of the Top Docs who have overseen the worst of the gore in north Wales are involved with medical missions to hot countries.
I remember Sophie Hook’s disappearance well. I was living in Rachub near Bethesda at the time and was being visited by the North Wales Police at least on a weekly basis – at the behest of Dafydd et al – who would either threaten to arrest me or arrest me. July 1995 was the month that Dafydd ‘retired’ and the month in which the world was told that the North Wales Hospital had closed, although it hadn’t… There were still patients out there and Gwynfryn Ward, the ‘mother and baby unit’ continued to operate…
My documents show that throughout 1995 and 1996, Dafydd et al conspired, lied, planted evidence and fabricated documents in their efforts to have me imprisoned or placed in a secure psychiatric institution…
It was the word of these people who were substantially responsible for sealing the fate of Howard Hughes.
I have no idea what Howard Hughes did or didn’t do. But I do know that one cannot believe a word of many of those who were involved with his case.
Yesterday a reader was kind enough to send me a document listing the Council Members of the BMA for 2014-15. There are a few interesting names on there, but in this post I just want to highlight two of them: Philip Banfield and Sheila Hollins.
Philip Banfield has featured on this blog before, but I’m briefly revisiting him. He is a Consultant Obs/Gyae for the Betsi Board and an Honorary Senior Lecturer, North Wales Clinical School / Cardiff University. Philip is the ‘Faculty Lead, Transforming Maternity Services’. So Philip is the man charged with turning around the maternity services in north Wales which were so bad that the Board ended up in special measures and is still in special measures.
Philip has worked in north Wales for many moons. So Philip, who was performing the dangerous abortions for money in Chester when your colleagues clubbed together and ensured that women in north Wales were unable to access NHS abortions? And what happened to all the babies born to those Denbigh patients?
Philip is Chair of the BMA’s Welsh Council. Or at least he was in 2014-15.
Professor the Baroness Sheila Hollins is a bundle of fun. The Baroness was a psychiatrist of learning disability at St George’s/Springfield Hospital when I worked there, 1989-91. When the whole of Springfield and much of St George’s facilitated Ollie Brooke’s paedophile gang as well as Dafydd’s in north Wales. Learning disabled with mental health problems as well? You’re not going to have a chance against the Top Docs are you. Such patients were getting pregnant, indeed I witnessed one of them give birth in the delivery suite at St George’s. The parents of the pregnant Springfield patients were always told that it was one of the other patients who was responsible for the pregnancy. Maybe it was in many cases, but when I met that young woman who had her baby in 1990, the staff kept commenting on the fact that the father of the baby was so disabled himself that they were surprised that he’d even managed to have sex competently to father a baby. How anyone knew that he was the father I don’t know, because he was so severely disabled that he couldn’t talk. The mother of the baby could talk, but she didn’t know how she’d got pregnant anyway. Oh well it was obviously him then wasn’t it…
Regarding the enormity of what is happening to vulnerable people and has been happening for a long time. On one of the occasions in 2002 when the Hergest Unit had me arrested, a very nice young policewoman came into my cell and was kind enough to say ‘look, most of the police down here think that you are a really nice person. We know what you’re trying to expose, but you will never, ever win. There are too many of them and they’re never going to leave you alone. You need to get out of north Wales for ever because they are determined to get you in prison.’ On that occasion I was released without charge. I saw the policewoman again in 2003. She turned up to Mold Crown Court for my trial and was one of those who had perjured herself in relation to the allegations that I had threatened to kill Alun Davies. As the charges were withdrawn, she followed the rest of the perjurers out of the door without saying a word to anyone…
