Man Of Steel

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

  • Sir John Peel | The BMJ

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Some dates for your diary:

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A la Doug and Dinsdale Piranha.

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

Although he was a gynaecologist…

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

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

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

So what went wrong with the repair then?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Here is the turd whom Scotland elected as FM:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sad Satan - Nejzvláštnější hororová hra - Paraweb

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

 

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

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

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

Salisbury Sehenswürdigkeiten: 65 Attraktionen ansehen ...

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

Paedophiles In Distress, Call John Walton!!!

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

and in the London borough of Camden until 1972.

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

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

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

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

Oh please, this is overdoing it…

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

Jesus Christ.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I’ll just fetch the sick bucket

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

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

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

They’ve bred.

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

Aaaarggghh…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Keeping a lid on absolutely all of it

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

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

 

 

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

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

60 years, it is almost as terrifying as Trumpers.

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

Right To Reply

A few hours ago an article appeared on ‘Guardian Online’ reporting on an interview that Michelle Obama gave to ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’ breakfast show in which Michelle talked about the contents of her soon to be published book, ‘Becoming’. Which extracts from ‘Becoming’ were highlighted in particular? Well bugger me, it was Michelle’s revelation that her daughters were conceived by IVF and that she and Barack received marriage counselling.

When I first saw the article I thought ‘oh no, it’s another high profile female Western leader/celeb who has Opened Her Heart and Shared’ and my initial response was to feel a bit sad that Michelle Obama had felt it necessary to reveal confidential details of personal difficulties – she also talks about a miscarriage – when there was no need for her to do this.

I am of course aware that this blog describes some pretty bad experiences of my own, but I ended up doing this because for decades I watched people die and have their lives destroyed by some seriously dangerous people who remain at the top of the medical and other professions. Furthermore they just would not lay off me or those close to me, so they have got this blog. I have received some really thoughtful e mails telling me that it must have been incredibly hard for me to have relived what we went through while writing the blog. No, it has been fine, because I have excluded the worst experiences and as a result of my academic interests I have placed emphasis on the sociological, historical and political context of the events. I took the view that such an approach was more worthwhile than an account of ‘My Hell’. ‘My Hells’ are simply received with an ‘ah, bechod!’, or an ‘ooh she’s a strong woman’ and a comment about slipping through the net. I and others did not slip through the net, the net was pulled to one side to ensure that we hit the concrete. Fortunately for me I bounced, but many more people hit the concrete and it killed them. Which was the purpose. I hope that I have shown on this blog that hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of vulnerable people were actively forced into the clutches of a vicious criminal network by the welfare state over many, many years, that it was concealed at Gov’t level by successive Govt’s and that no-one has been held to account.

Then I re-read the ‘Guardian Online’ article about Michelle’s interview and I noticed something more than another Woman Opening Her Heart. Michelle’s comments to ABC were an advert for the medical establishment. No, I am not on the Grassy Knoll, bear with me…

 

Hours before Michelle gave that interview to ABC, I wrote my post ‘The Point Is To Change It’, in which I expanded on the most appalling criminal conspiracy on the part of numerous people, including some in Very High Places, to destroy an honest man, Merfyn Jones, the former Chairman of the Betsi Caladwaladr University Health Board in north Wales, because he challenged those who had facilitated a VIP/Westminster Paedophile Ring and years previously his late wife did as well. So desperate were people who had been accessories to very serious crime that the conspiracy ended in corrupt professionals employed in the UK’s NHS allowing patients to die in order to destroy this man’s reputation, after he took on the unenviable task of Chairing that deeply troubled Health Board which employed numerous people who had facilitated the criminal gang who neglected, abused and killed vulnerable people.

 

The Guardian Online tells us that ‘America’s first black first lady reveals she her and her husband, Barack Obama, sought marriage counselling and struggled to get pregnant after she suffered a miscarriage. They underwent in vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatments to conceive daughters Malia and Sasha…Obama also says she will “never forgive” Trump for peddling false conspiracy theories about her husband’s birthplace which, she says, put her family’s life in danger from “wingnuts and kooks”…Obama said she felt “lost and alone” after a miscarriage 20 years ago. “I felt like I failed because I didn’t know how common miscarriages were, because we don’t talk about them. We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we’re broken….It’s important to talk to young mothers about the fact that miscarriages happen...The biological clock is real … egg production is limited. I realised as I was 34 and 35, we had to do IVF. I think it’s the worst thing that we do to each other as women, not share the truth about our bodies and how they work.”

Michelle, women DO ‘share the truth about their bodies’, they ‘share the truth’ quietly and in confidence with people whom they feel able to trust, usually close friends or relatives. The people who are not ‘sharing the truth’ about women’s bodies are the legal and medical professions. Michelle Obama is a former lawyer and hospital administrator. The truth about IVF, including the success rates or the soundness or otherwise of the techniques used, has not been shared with women, or at least the women who are patients. The truth not having been shared has recently been borne out by the many reports etc detailing the numerous ways in which desperate, trusting patients have been fleeced, reports of which Michelle Obama will be well aware. But IVF is a very, very profitable business which has come under severe attack recently…

Gee, what better advert at a difficult time than the First Black First Lady – and one with such enviable arms as well, there’s no bingo wings on Michelle!!! – telling the world that her two lovely, clever daughters, who received that little dog as a present when their dad Became America’s First Black President, were conceived by IVF!

In terms of not Sharing The Truth, is Michelle aware of the recent vaginal mesh scandal, in which women were positively encouraged to insert a device into their bits which caused lifelong injury to many of them? The possibility of that happening was known by the Top Docs who robustly promoted vaginal meshes but women were not warned. Vaginal meshes were promoted for use by women with incontinence problems. Michelle might be interested to know that one Truth that Top Doctors are reluctant to Share with women is the very common incidence of stress incontinence in middle aged women, particularly those who have given birth. It is so common that in previous generations, women considered mild stress incontinence as normal as greying hair or wrinkles, it was not something one even bothered to seek medical advice about. In more recent years, women experiencing this have been encouraged to Talk To Their Doctor and have been made to feel that they are suffering from something as bad as a recto-vaginal fistula. The loathed and unscrupulous Professor Stuart Stanton of St George’s Hospital Medical School (see previous posts) became a very rich man by performing pelvic floor surgery on rich, anxious women who had been convinced by Top Docs that there was something seriously disgusting about them. I await Michelle’s Sharing of her experiences of stress incontinence.

With regard to the Top Docs and the healthcare industry not Sharing the secrets of both women’s and men’s bodies, Dr David Healy has demonstrated that drug companies, including American drug companies,  routinely withold data from clinical trials if that data reveals that women’s and men’s bodies could be damaged by the drugs concerned.

Medicine is an international business. Some of the British obstetricians and gynaecologists – as well as other Top Doctors – named on this blog as having been involved with the most serious misconduct have strong links with the US. Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain was Stuart Stanton’s colleague and until Chamberlain was caught up in a huge medical research fraud scandal in the mid-1990s, he was President of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and was waiting for his knighthood. Chamberlain spent 1965-66 working at the George Washington Hospital, Washington DC, USA. While he was working there, Chamberlain aborted late gestation foetuses by performing hysterectomies on women, conducted experiments on the live foetuses and then killed them after he had finished experimenting. Chamberlain published this work in the ‘American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology’, March 1968, it has been there for everyone to read for decades.

Chamberlain’s experiments almost certainly contravened US law at the time and I very much doubt that the women whom he operated on to gain access to those foetuses knew what was going to happen to them. The foetuses on which Chamberlain experimented would now be considered to be premature babies and they would receive neonatal intensive care. Chamberlain also concealed a huge sex trafficking ring with which his colleagues were involved/facilitating.

See post ‘Now Then…’ for further details of Chamberlain and his wrongdoing, including those experiments on live foetuses.

 

The UK’s most high profile fertility expert, Lord Robert Winston, was a friend and colleague of Geoffrey Chamberlain. In 1980, Robert Winston conducted research as Professor of Gynaecology at the University of Texas Health Science Centre at San Antonio. Together with Carol Readhead of the California Institute of Technology, Winston has been researching male germ cell stem cells and methods for their genetic modification at the Institute of Reproductive and Developmental Biology, Imperial College, London. Previous posts eg. ‘I Don’t Believe It’ have detailed some of the misconduct and research fraud perpetrated by staff at Imperial. Other posts have named senior academics at Imperial eg. Lord Brian Flowers who concealed and colluded with research fraud and the organised abuse carried out by Dafydd’s gang.

 

My post ‘I Passionately Believe’ discussed the ways in which successive General Secretaries of the RCN concealed and ignored patient harm, including the crimes of Dafydd’s gang. One such RCN President, 2001-07, was Beverley Malone, who was headhunted from her post in the US.

Here is the extract about Beverley Malone from ‘I Passionately Believe’:

Beverly Malone is the Chief Executive of the National League for Nursing in the US. Prior to assuming this position in February 2007, she served as General Secretary of the RCN in the UK from 2001, the year following the publication of the Waterhouse Report when there were many furious voices maintaining that Waterhouse was a huge cover-up. During Beverley’s time as the RCN, members of the RCN assaulted and injured me as well as other patients, lied about their actions when we made complaints and then perjured themselves in an attempt to have me imprisoned for a serious crime.

Beverly Malone was raised in rural Kentucky, in the segregated deep south of the US by her great grandmother. Malone obtained a Bachelor’s degree in nursing from the University of Cincinnati in 1970. From 1970 she worked as an Angel in New Jersey, obtaining a Master’s degree in adult psychiatric nursing from Rutgers University in 1972. In 1972 Beverley Malone was appointed Instructor of Psychiatric Nursing at Wayne State University in Michigan. From 1973 Malone was a specialist nurse, professor and administrator at University Hospital, Cincinnati.

Psychiatric nursing in the US – as well as in the UK – at that time was a pretty dreadful business. Exposes both fictional (eg. ‘One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest’) and academic (eg. David Rosenhan’s famous 1973 study in which sane academics posed as people with one minor psychiatric symptom to gain entry to mental hospitals and were within days declared to be far too mad to be allowed out for many months; see post ‘Inappropriate Behaviour?’) infuriated the Top Doctors but there was so much evidence emerging of widespread dreadful practices that the abuse of patients could not be denied.

Malone obtained her PhD in clinical psychology from Cincinnati University in 1981 and was then Assistant Administrator of the Medical Centre. In 1986 Malone was made Dean of the School of Nursing at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, an historically black university. She became Vice Chancellor in 1994. In North Carolina, Malone also served on a number of public bodies, including the Governor’s Task Force on Nursing Shortage, the North Carolina Commission on Health Services and the Board of Directors of the Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Program.

In 1996 Malone was elected President of the American Nurses Association (ANA), an organisation representing 180,000 Angels throughout the United States. She was the second African-American to hold this position. She served two terms lasting until 2000. President Bill Clinton appointed Malone as a member of the US delegation to the  World Health Assembly, the governing body of WHO (World Health Association), in 1998 and 1999.

During her Presidency, Malone served on Bill Clinton’s Advisory Commission on Consumer Protection and Quality in the Health Care Industry and in March 1998 she was appointed to the Health Care Quality Measurement and Reporting Committee. She also represented U.S. nurses in the Congress of Nurse Representatives of the International Council of Nurses and served on the Board of Directors of the National Patient Safety Partnership, a collaboration with the Dept of Veterans’ Affairs, the AMA (American Medical Association) and other national health care organisations.

From 2000, Malone was appointed by Clinton as Deputy Assistant Secretary for Health within the US Dept of Health and Human Services, the highest position that an Angel had ever held in the US Gov’t.

You also lied, as did your foul wife Hillary when she maintained that the string of women whom you shagged, exploited and dumped or simply harassed were themselves the liars or were as equally culpable as you were
So in 2001, in the aftermath of the Waterhouse Report – and as the Mid-Staffs scandal and God knows how much more NHS wrongdoing was being suppressed by Miranda’s Gov’t – a pillar of the US mental health establishment who rose up the ladder during the time of the most serious abuse of psychiatric patients in the US relocated to the UK and was appointed to lead the RCN.
The British and US healthcare establishments are closely intertwined and have been swapping both Top Doctors and methods for concealing wrongdoing and quashing dissent for generations. Some of those directly involved with the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal had links with the US medical/nursing establishment.
In 2007 Beverley Malone wrote ‘How could the RCN want an American, an African American, to run the most prestigious professional nursing trade union in the world? ‘
Answer: because in the wake of the cover-up re the crimes of an international trafficking ring involving the collusion of Top Doctors and politicians in the US, the British establishment could portray you as a li’l ole black Angel raised by her great granny while the KKK pursued you all, like something out of ‘The Colour Purple’, rather than someone who had been at the centre of America’s most shameful period of medical history and who had used that to get herself to the very top of the tree in the US.
But then Hillary Clinton Cares About Wimmin.
Perhaps Beverley would like to deliver a lecture on how it was the legislation passed by Bill, who was assisted in the task by Hillary, which led to the imprisonment and subsequent disenfranchisement of thousands of poor, black Americans. That’s why so many were locked up; it was Bill and Hillary wot did it. Thus the subsequent shock horror revelation of ‘young black men in America have more chance of going to prison than to university’. Yes and it was the Clintons who criminalised so many of them.

Beverley’s wiki entry tells us that re Beverley becoming the Gen Sec of the RCN – the largest professional union of nursing staff in the world – Clinton is said to have smoothed the way politically by “having a word” with Miranda and Gordon.

I’ll tell you who knew about Gwynne the lobotomist, Dafydd, Bertrand Russell et al and what they were all up to in Croesor/Llanfrothen in the 1960s and 70s (see eg. post ‘The Village’): the young American draft dodger who stayed at Croesor with the radical crowd at that time and who later became a Democrat Senator!

Bill was a draft dodger too of course, but he called it ‘going to study at Oxford University on a Rhodes scholarship’. Bill got out and about and mixed with all sorts when he was at Oxford.

 

Hey ho ex-POTUS you didn’t expect this did you? Well you shouldn’t have blamed Monica you bastard, you could have at least had the guts to say ‘yeah, sorry, I did it…’ And your wife is no feminist either, she’s a rich over-indulged hypocrite and I’ve had a bellyful of being told that she’s my fucking role model.

 

When in the UK, Beverley Malone was also a member of HEFCE and represented the RCN at the European Federation of Nurses’ Associations (EFN), the Commonwealth Nurses Federation and the International Council of Nurses, together with being the RCN General Secretary.

Malone was at first the subject of considerable UK media attention and some controversy, because of her generous remuneration package. Yeah, the Low Paid Angel will have been given a great deal of dosh. There was also criticism of Malone’s mother, Dorothy Black, receiving free eye surgery under the NHS soon after her arrival, in spite of having paid no British taxes or insurance contributions. Send her back, along with all those Nigerian women who fly into Tommy’s weekly to give birth to quins on the NHS!  Officials stated that Malone’s mum had not been given preferential treatment and, as a resident or dependent relative of a resident, was entitled to the same free healthcare as anyone else. Er, then why did so many other people in that position receive so much grief? Furthermore, because Malone returned to the US – thankfully – after the necessary had been done for Miranda and the patient batterers/child abusers, she was more like a tourist on an extended holiday than a UK resident.

Malone was also criticised for attending a Labour Party event as a guest, because of the traditional party-political neutrality of her employer.

Beverley is a poor, uneducated 14-year-old girl living in the American South in the early 1900s. She writes letters to God because her stepfather, Alphonso, beats her harshly and rapes her continuously. Alphonso has already impregnated Beverley once, a pregnancy that resulted in the birth of a boy she named Adam. Alphonso takes the baby away shortly after his birth. Beverley has a second child, a girl she named Olivia whom Alphonso also abducts. Beverley’s ailing mother dies after cursing Beverley on her deathbed.  After she had her eyes done on the NHS. And went to Chequers to meet Cherie and Miranda.

Another one of the Oppressed:

Peter Mandelson

 

Duw it’s hard for Celie in the deep south under segregation…

  • The Telegraph - Telegraph Online, Daily Telegraph, Sunday ...

 

In 2003 Celie Malone became a member of the steering committee of the NHS Modernisation Agency. While Miranda et al continued to conceal Mid-Staffs. In 2006, Miranda appointed Celie as a member of the UK delegation to the World Health Assembly.

In an interview with ‘The Guardian’ before returning to the United States, while criticising job cuts and cost cutting in the British NHS, Malone spoke favourably of the system, calling it “a treasure” and praising a system where healthcare is a right rather than a privilege. Malone said this when she knew that NHS whistleblowers were having their careers ruined and that people in north Wales who had spilt the pints of Dafydd and the gang were being unlawfully denied healthcare and were being openly threatened, harassed, arrested and prosecuted on the basis of the lies of NHS Angels. But at least Bev’s mum got her eyes done.

Malone welcomed the greater “visibility” of the nursing profession in Britain, as compared with the US. Midwifery has virtually disappeared in the US because of the prevalence of high tech births managed by Top Docs; many midwives in the UK feared/fear that their profession too is being written out of the picture by a similar process. The NHS, assisted by the RCM, systematically forced all independent midwives in the UK out of practice, because they were a little too outspoken regarding the poor care that too many women received from mainstream practitioners, including in the NHS. I knew one of the independent midwives targeted, Beatrice Carla. She was living in Gwynedd while Malone was leading the RCN and had been subjected to an all out witch hunt. Malone will have known about Beatrice’s case, it was widely discussed in the nursing press at the time. Beatrice is now practising abroad, having concluded that there is now no way in which she can practice midwifery in the UK without compromising the safety of her patients.

 

After returning to the US, from February 2007, Malone was appointed Chief Executive of the National League for Nursing (NLN), which has a membership of over 40,000. She also represented U.S. Angels in the Congress of Nurse Representatives of the International Council of Nurses.

In 2009, Malone testified during the Congressional budget hearings. She also served on the Institute of Medicine’s Forum on the Future of Nursing Education.

Malone has been particularly involved in minority health issues, racial and ethnic health disparities and other issues of race and cultural diversity. That must be why in the US some ethnic minorities have such poor health outcomes, such as pregnant Peurto Rican women. They have one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the western world, partly because so many of them cannot afford antenatal care so those women who develop pre-eclampsia are not identified; it develops into eclampsia which kills them. Beverley has obviously been spectacularly ineffective with regard to that.

Malone is a member of the Baptist Church and is religious. Then she will probably have firm views on abortion but was nonetheless one of those who kept quiet about the experiments which Prof Geoffrey Chamberlain of St George’s Hospital Medical School, who was at one point the President of the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, conducted on live late gestation foetuses whom he aborted when he worked in the US in the mid-1960s. After experimenting on them, Chamberlain killed the foetuses. See post ‘Now Then…’ Chamberlain was one of those who concealed the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal and in 2000, the year of the publication of the Waterhouse Report, he was given a lecturing post in the history of medicine at Swansea University. Chamberlain’s feet were well under the table when Bev arrived in the UK to lead the RCN at Miranda’s invitation.

I posted that information about Beverley Malone some two weeks ago. That is why I do not think that I am on the Grassy Knoll re Michelle’s comments about the wonders of IVF and the psy professions.
A few more considerations.
My post ‘Lest We Forget’, which I wrote two days ago, detailed the many links that the late Professor Lisa Jardine had with people and organisations who concealed the crimes of Dafydd’s gang. Jardine was the Chair of the UK’s Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority, 2008-14 and under her Chairmanship, fertility patients were lied to, deceived and charged for treatments that were unlikely to be successful. Jardine was an Honorary Bencher of the Honourable Society of the Middle Temple. Sir Ronnie Waterhouse, the High Court judge who Chaired the Waterhouse Inquiry and wrote the subsequent Waterhouse Report which concealed the extent of the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal as well as the involvement of high profile from outside of north Wales, was a member and Treasurer of Middle Temple.
Lisa Jardine was awarded the Francis Bacon Award in the History of Science by the California Institute of Technology in 2012 and collected the Bacon Medal for this award at the annual History of Science Society meeting in San Diego in September 2012.
Martin Jones, the former CEO of the NW Wales NHS Trust and former Director of the Workforce at the Betsi Board, was one of those who led the attacks on Merfyn (see post ‘The Point Is To Change It’). When Martin Jones was a senior manager of the NW Wales NHS Trust, Martin established links with a hospital in the US and made a number of visits to that hospital, with a view to ‘sharing practice’ and developing business links’. Martin and his colleagues flew first class and stayed in very expensive hotels, charging it all to the Trust, yet were not able to show any outcomes from their partnership with the US hospital. While Martin was making those trips to the US, the suicide rate at the Hergest Unit was one of the highest in the UK and there were numerous complaints, including of patients being assaulted by staff.
Miranda and Cherie established a cosy relationship with the Clintons and the Obamas, as well of course with George Dubya Bush and his wife. Miranda built his foreign policy on close ties with US and EU and added a new activist philosophy of “interventionism”. In 2001 Britain joined the US in the global war on terror. Miranda formed a strong political alliance with Dubya, particularly in the area of foreign policy. For his part, Dubya lauded Miranda and the UK. In his post-9/11 speech, for example, Dubya stated that “America has no truer friend than Great Britain”. The alliance between Dubya and Miranda seriously damaged Miranda’s standing in the eyes of Britons angry at American influence. Miranda argued it was in Britain’s interest to “protect and strengthen the bond” with the United States regardless of who is in the White House.

 

However, a perception of one-sided compromising personal and political closeness led to discussion of the term “Poodle-ism” in the UK media, to describe the “Special Relationship” of the UK Gov’t and PM with the US White House and President. A revealing conversation between Bush and Miranda, with the former addressing the latter as “Yo Blair “, was recorded when they did not know a microphone was live at the G8 summit in St Petersburg in 2006.

In summer 2015, in the wake of the Hillary Clinton e mail controversy, Cherie was revealed to have lobbied Clinton in 2009 on behalf of prominent members of the Qatari monarchy; Clinton was US Secretary of State at the time. In a letter to ‘The Guardian’, Cherie denied this characterisation of her mediation efforts, describing their story as “sensationalist and inaccurate”. Precisely two months later, the release of another batch of Clinton’s private emails confirmed that Cherie had, indeed, arranged meetings with Clinton for the Qataris outside normal diplomatic channels, with discussions to involve “the US/Qatar relationship generally”, not merely joint philanthropic efforts. In one case, Cherie herself stated that her purpose was to help the eldest of Sheikh Mosah’s sons, Jasim bin Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani “build up an international profile”.

In 2005, Euan, Miranda and Cherie’s son, spent three months as an unpaid intern with Republican David Dreier and Republican Party staff of the Rules Committee of the United States House of Representatives . He then crossed the aisle to spend time working in the office of Democrat Jane Harman. Euan Blair cut short his internship with Harman in May 2006, after just a fortnight. A statement from Harman’s office cited Euan Blair’s graduate school plans. In 2008, Euan Blair graduated from Yale University’s MacMillan Center with an M.A. in International Relations. He accepted this place after being awarded a £50,000 ($100,000) scholarship based on merit, although there was some surprise at this award.

Barack Obama’s time as US President overlapped with Lord Snooty the Third’s time as PM. Lord Snooty the Third not only had a hand in causing problems for Merfyn, but his father Ian was Chairman of White’s when Sir Peter Morrison, who was abusing kids in care in north Wales, enjoyed membership of White’s. It was Lord Snooty the Third who appointed Theresa May as Home Secretary and then gave her the responsibility of organising the review of the Waterhouse Inquiry. Theresa appointed Lady Justice Julia Macur, who produced such a heavily redacted Report that it was meaningless, but reassured everyone anyway that Waterhouse had not been a cover-up. Theresa served as a Councillor for Merton Borough Council, 1986-94, which was a Borough served by St George’s Hospital Medical School, which at the time was concealing Dafydd and the gang in north Wales and a linked trafficking gang in south London. Lord Snooty the Third also appointed David Jones MP as Secretary of State for Wales during the run-up to the organisation of the Review of the Waterhouse Inquiry. David Jones is a solicitor from north Wales who before he became an MP worked with corrupt solicitors in two different law firms in north Wales who were concealing the abuse of children and vulnerable people. See post ‘Lord Snooty The Third’).
During his term as PM, Lord Snooty the Third managed to secure a huge majority for UK participation in UN-backed military action in Libya, but he became the first PM since 1782 to lose a foreign policy vote in the House of Commons over proposed military action against Assad’s regime in Syria. Subsequently, Barack Obama asked congressional approval which was not ultimately granted.

Lord Snooty the Third condemned the “appalling and unacceptable” violence used against anti-Gaddafi protesters at the beginning of the Libyan Civil War. After weeks of lobbying by the UK and its allies, on 17 March 2011 the UN Security Council approved a no-fly zone to prevent government forces loyal to Gaddafi from carrying out air attacks on anti-Gaddafi rebels. Two days later the UK and the United States fired more than 110 Tomahawk missiles at targets in Libya.

Lord Snooty the Third said that he was “proud” of the role that the UK played in the overthrow of Gaddafi’s government. He also stated that UK had played a “very important role”, adding that “a lot of people said that Tripoli was completely different to Benghazi and that the two don’t get on—they were wrong. … People who said ‘this is all going to be an enormous swamp of Islamists and extremists’—they were wrong”.

In 2015-16 the Foreign Affairs Select Committee conducted an extensive and highly critical inquiry into the British involvement in the Libyan civil war. It concluded that the early threat to civilians had been overstated and that the significant Islamist element in the rebel forces had not been recognised, due to an intelligence failure. By summer 2011 the initial limited intervention to protect Libyan civilians had become a policy of regime change. However that new policy did not include proper support and for a new government, leading to a political and economic collapse in Libya and the growth of ISIL in North Africa. It concluded that Lord Snooty the Third was ultimately responsible for this British policy failure.

US President Barack Obama also acknowledged there had been issues with following up the conflict planning, commenting in an interview with ‘The Atlantic’ magazine that Lord Snooty the Third had allowed himself to be “distracted by a range of other things”.

Michelle ‘also disclosed her marriage went through some rocky times, especially after Barack Obama joined the Illinois state legislature, leaving her at home where she was forced to administer IVF shots herself.

Does Michelle realise how women who are not married to Presidents actually live? They would not consider having to ‘administer IVF shots’ themselves while their husbands were at work any great hardship.

They met a counsellor “a handful of times,” she writes, and she came to realise she was more “in charge” of her happiness than she had realised…’

As rich, powerful US citizens, Michelle and Barack would indeed have a substantial degree of control over their own happiness, even if Michelle had to inject herself while Barack was at work. The victims of Dafydd’s gang did not, no matter how often they were told that all they needed to do was to practice Mindfulness, or to ‘stay strong’, or to ‘stop catastrophizing’. They were still found dead because the Magic wasn’t sufficient to overcome the activities of a vicious gang of criminals. The Empowered Service Users and their carers would be constantly met with these sorts of platitudes whenever they tried to express their distress or desperation to the Top Doctors and others. They were continually reassured that they would be OK because they were Survivors. One man who’s relatives were told this after they raised their deepest concerns regarding his ability to cope was found dead weeks later. It is not that I wish to suggest that promoting a ‘victim’ identity is a good idea, but people in desperate situations are not helped simply by a rather less desperate person telling them that they are a survivor instead of offering constructive support.

She told ABC: “Marriage counselling for us was one of those ways where we learned how to talk out our differences. I know too many young couples who struggle and think that somehow there’s something wrong with them. And I want them to know that Michelle and Barack Obama, who have a phenomenal marriage and who love each other, we work on our marriage. And we get help with our marriage when we need it.”

Oh please. Are you and Barack such perfect, indeed phenomenal, people that the whole world only has to follow your shining example Michelle?? Just like those bloody arms of yours, to which middle-aged women were told to aspire? Don’t you realise that in the US as well as in other parts of the world, millions of people do not have the luxury of ‘getting help with their marriage’? Getting help with one’s marriage is a first world problem Michelle, rather like acquiring upper arms which are toned. If you are poor and busy, you don’t usually have such luxuries. And of course, many people who do ‘get help with their marriage’ do not find it that helpful. Experiences are mixed.

The couple met at the Chicago law firm Sidley Austin. In the book, Obama also describes falling in love one summer night in Chicago. “As soon as I allowed myself to feel anything for Barack, the feelings came rushing – a toppling blast of lust, gratitude, fulfilment, wonder.”

This is quite poignant, I’ve just read Cherie Booth’s autobiography, ‘Speaking For Myself’ and that volume, rather than being any meaningful analysis or inquiry, is full of this sort of thing, only being Cherie there’s also a lot about the size of her bum and her hips and how she couldn’t have managed without her hairdresser Andre travelling with her and how outrageous it was that Cherie wasn’t given a state-funded ‘budget’ to ‘dress’ herself.

Are there not a great many people living in considerable hardship in the US at the moment Michelle? Now, remind me, who won the last US Presidential election? Was it the Democrat candidate or the Republican candidate??? They were both very rich, but I can remember who won as a result of the great deal of disillusionment with the Democrat candidate… I wouldn’t have voted for Trump but I wouldn’t have voted for the rich spoiled white woman who blamed the women who had been sexually exploited by her husband for their own predicament either.

Obama’s speech at the 2016 Democratic convention in Philadelphia, in the throes of a presidential election, remains widely seen as the archetypal antidote to Trumpism. Her plea “When they go low, we go high,” became a cri de cœur for many progressives, though some say it is now time to fight the president on his own terms.

Your side lost Michelle. For some reason the glamour and glitz and the phenomenal marriage and the muscly arms did not achieve the desired effect.

Yes, you mentioned the ‘wingnuts’ and ‘kooks’ earlier. Was your family’s safety REALLY at risk Michelle? Just because Trump was rude? Furthermore I imagine that your family has a high degree of security, far higher than former British political leaders enjoy and they are pretty well-protected.

I am in hiding Michelle, one of my friends was murdered and attempts were made to kill two others. None of us has security and neither were we warned that a gang of very dangerous organised criminals had targeted us. When other victims of the gang complained about being terrorised or violently assaulted, they were dismissed by everyone as being nutters. That’s English for ‘wingnuts’ and ‘kooks’.

Trump suggested repeatedly and loudly in high-profile public forums that Barack Obama, who father was Kenyan, was not born in the US but on foreign soil and therefore ineligible for president. In fact, Barack Obama was born in Hawaii and eventually displayed his birth certificate. Trump eventually, reluctantly, conceded the US president was American-born.

Obama writes: “The whole thing was crazy and mean-spirited, of course, its underlying bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed. But it was also dangerous, deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks. Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family’s safety at risk. And for this I’d never forgive him.”

It wasn’t very nice of him Michelle, but it wasn’t really a serious threat to your physical safety was it?

She expresses disbelief over how so many women would choose a “misogynist” in Trump over Hillary Clinton in 2016. She remembers how her body “buzzed with fury” after seeing the infamous Access Hollywood tape, in which Trump brags about sexually assaulting women.

Indeed, Trump’s comments were appalling, but instead of expressing disbelief Michelle, you have to ask yourself why so many women did vote for Trump. There were analyses suggesting that Hillary was a toxic choice of candidate but no-one would listen. Hillary herself openly sneered and laughed at Bernie Sanders when he made a supportive comment to her during the campaigning, which Hillary interpreted as suggesting that she was the better candidate. Christ, I wouldn’t vote for someone who conducted themselves like that towards another candidate behaving gracefully.

Obama also accuses Trump of using body language to ‘stalk’ Clinton during an election debate. Trump’s message, according to Obama, in words which appear in the book in darkened print, was: “I can hurt you and get away with it.”

Trump didn’t hurt Clinton. He was moving around very close behind her, but he didn’t touch her. It was in a public place, in front of journos and cameras and Hillary’s supporters claiming that she was ‘stallked’ is insulting to people who really have been stalked. Interestingly enough Michelle, the members of that criminal gang told everyone who would listen that I was ‘stalking’ them. Now I have 10,000 documents written and signed by them clearly demonstrating that it was me who was being stalked by them. A claim – particularly by a famous woman – that they are being ‘stalked’ is easy to make and whips up emotions very easily, particularly if the putative ‘stalker’ is male.

Er, isn’t Hillary supposed to be a Strong Woman??? What Strong Woman feels ‘stalked’ and ‘hurt’ by a rather rude man moving around behind her in a crowded forum with security and cameras everywhere?

She writes how she reacted in shock the night she learned he would replace her husband in the Oval Office and tried to “block it all out”.

I’d Get Help with that if I was you Michelle…

Memoirs by former first ladies, including Hillary Clinton and Laura Bush, have been bestsellers. ‘Becoming’ is part of a joint book deal with Barack Obama – whose memoir is expected next year – that is thought to be worth tens of millions of dollars.

Ah!!! OK, we have the rationale… Michelle has learnt how to control her own happiness…

The Obamas have said they will donate a “significant portion” of their author proceeds to charity, including the Obama Foundation. Obama launches her promotional tour on Tuesday at Chicago’s United Center, where tens of thousands of people have bought tickets – ranging from just under $30 to thousands of dollars – to attend the event moderated by Oprah Winfrey. Other stops on a tour worthy of a rock star are planned at large arenas including New York City’s Barclays Center and the Los Angeles Forum.

Will there be a bit more PR for a deeply corrupt medico-legal profession on the tour Michelle? We may well be in for a massive dose of such PR, because the according to ‘The New York Times’ Barack and Michelle are in talks to produce shows for Netflix and one possible show idea was for Barack to moderate debates on issues such as health care, climate change and immigration- all of which dominated his eight years in the White House. Eric Schultz, a senior adviser to the former President, did not confirm the plans, but said they would make sense. “President and Mrs Obama have always believed in the power of storytelling to inspire,” Schultz told the paper.

STORYTELLING – yes, it’ll be yet more ‘The doctors they were wonderful’.

Schultz stated of the Obamas that “Throughout their lives, they have lifted up stories of people whose efforts to make a difference are quietly changing the world for the better. As they consider their future personal plans, they continue to explore new ways to help others tell and share their stories.”

How about interviewing Merfyn regarding his efforts to improve the NHS in north Wales, only to find that a group of white-collar criminals conspired to allow patients to die in order to force him out of public life then Barack?

 

To return to The Guardian Online’s article about Michelle.

The high profile events are bound to reignite calls for a presidential run. A recent poll from Axios by SurveyMonkey found that if she ran for president in 2020, Obama would have a 13-point advantage over Trump, while TV star and media entrepreneur Oprah Winfrey would have a 12-point advantage.

Oh God, can’t a normal woman run for office, instead of massively rich women who do nothing but talk about their traumas on TV and flog everything about themselves for the highest price possible???

Obama has long said she has no interest in running for office, although she held a few campaign-style rallies before this week’s midterm elections, urging people to register to vote.

Michelle must be the only person on the planet with no interest in politics who has run a few campaign-style rallies.

She writes: ‘I’ve never been a fan of politics, and my experience over the last ten years has done little to change that. I continue to be put off by the nastiness.’”

You are maxing out on being the First Black First Lady Michelle and as for nastiness, I think that overblown accusations that a rude, tweeting man is encouraging ‘wingnuts’ and ‘kooks’ to physically attack your very well-guarded family is pretty bloody nasty.

 

Here’s Michelle, shy, retiring, with no interest in politics, yet at the same time deeply inspirational and no doubt passionate as well:

“I’ll never forgive him for what he did to our United States military by not funding it properly. What he did to our military made this country very unsafe.”

There you are Michelle, you need to respond to the allegation, not simply claim that Trump is encouraging violence and stalking Hillary. After all, he won the election so you weren’t listening to something.

Author Josh Kendall, who is currently writing a book about how the #MeToo movement casts a new light on presidential history, said: “The entire nation was moved by her plea during her speech at the DNC in 2016 to ‘go high’ instead of low. I would be surprised if a draft Michelle for 2020 drive wasn’t started some time at the beginning of her book tour.”

I don’t think that I’ll be able to cope with a rich lawyer who was married to a President basing her own Presidential campaign on a social media storm which claimed to represent powerless women… I had thought that nothing could surpass the party that Hillary organised for herself with the glass ceiling that she was going to symbolically break as soon as she was elected because she just KNEW that she was going to win, she didn’t need to wait for the voters to decide. Hillary had been booked for an appearance on ‘Woman’s Hour’ as well very soon after the date of the election and for weeks beforehand the ‘Woman’s Hour’ presenters kept telling listeners to remember to tune in because they would be hearing an interview with America’s First Woman President.

There was only thing that none of them accounted for:

  • boundaries – Omnipleasant

After Computer Said No, Hillary cancelled her appearance on ‘Woman’s Hour’. Which I thought was very rude of her what with all those Wimmin waiting to hear from their role model and Jenni Murray ready to toady and admire as never before, even if Hillary lost.

Someone in north Wales was as upset about Hillary not becoming President as ‘Woman’s Hour’ was, an Angel called Dee Jones aka Dee Gray. Dee was sacked from successive jobs but always bagged another one by blackmailing people with regard to her knowledge of criminal wrongdoing in the NHS in north Wales. Dee asked me to plant untrue damaging stories in the press about Merfyn when he was VC of Bangor University. When I refused, Dee yelled at me that Brown and I publishing about the abuse of psych patients in the NHS was damaging her career. Dee subsequently set up an Executive Coaching Consultancy and she is now selling her questionable expertise to the NHS Trusts that she knows to be neglecting and harming patients. See previous posts. After Hillary lost the election, Dee sent out furious tweets asking why a bad man always wins over a good woman…

 

At the end of the article about Michelle Obama, there was the following comment: ‘The Guardian is editorially independent, meaning we set our own agenda. Our journalism is free from commercial bias and not influenced by billionaire owners, politicians or shareholders. No one edits our editor. No one steers our opinion. This is important because it enables us to give a voice to the voiceless, challenge the powerful and hold them to account. It’s what makes us different to so many others in the media, at a time when factual, honest reporting is critical.’
It was ‘The Guardian’ who, back in the early 1990s, published untrue, damaging accusations that a senior sociologist at UCNW (Bangor University) was racially discriminating when making academic appointments, during the bun fight which resulted when Merfyn’s late wife Nerys crossed the path of Dafydd’s gang (see post ‘Badlands’). ‘The Guardian’ has never published anything about the en masse trafficking of children and vulnerable people by criminal gangs facilitated by the medical profession/NHS, with the active, willing involvement of social workers. The Guardian’s ‘Society’ pages for years accepted lucrative advertising funding from Social Services Depts which had been infiltrated by paedophile gangs without publishing anything about the abuse of children in those Depts. ‘The Guardian’ has robustly promoted Professor Peter Beresford as the Voice of the Mental Health Service User and has given his views much coverage, yet Beresford, a former social worker, has never been honest about the degree of abuse to which psych patients are subjected by the staff of the mental health services.
Merfyn’s late wife Nerys lived and worked in the US herself for a number of years; she was a sociologist who worked with Talcott Parsons’ team at Harvard. Nerys was previously married to a very high profile black Professor of Sociology at Harvard, known for his historical and cultural work on race in the US.
Michelle and Barack Obama are both graduates of Harvard Law School.
The person who co-ordinated the undermining of Merfyn when he was VC of Bangor University was Professor Fergus Lowe, an academic in the Psychology Dept who had been at Bangor since the early 1970s. When Fungus first joined that Dept, it was dominated by Dafydd and others who colluded with the abuse of children and psych patients in north Wales. In the late 1980s, Fungus overthrew Dafydd and dominated the Dept himself. Fungus then built his empire on the basis of his knowledge of who had colluded with Dafydd’s gang and basically blackmailed them. By such a process, Fungus netted millions and millions in research grant funding.
The University authorities planned to close the Psychology Dept at Bangor in the mid-1980s, because it was very small, failing and riddled with Dafydd’s corruption. It was Fungus who saved the Dept from closure, by holding a conference to which he invited the famous Harvard Professor of Psychology, B.F. Skinner. Fungus ensured that the conference and Skinner’s presence there received full media coverage and persuaded B.F. Skinner to lend his weight to the campaign to keep the Psychology Dept open. The real reason why the Dept remained open was that behind the scenes Fungus made it quite clear to people in High Places that the Psychology Dept was facilitating a paedophile/trafficking ring with links to the Royal Family and he had the names and details of the crimes of everyone involved. B.F. Skinner was used for PR.
See eg. posts ‘He’s Not The Messiah, He’s A Very Naughty Boy’, ‘Feet In Chains’ and ‘Sleeping With The Fishes’ and ‘Pets Win Prizes’ for more information about Fungus and the Psychology Dept at Bangor.
Fungus’s attack on Merfyn was launched while Merfyn’s wife Nerys was dying from a brain tumour after she had been told that there was no effective treatment available. Nerys died in the ‘care’ of the Walton Centre at Liverpool. The Walton Centre is run by Dafydd’s associates. Obviously I do not have any documentation relating to Nerys, but I have documentation relating to my own case which demonstrates quite clearly that no Top Docs anywhere in the UK would agree to provide me with effective treatment after I had complained about Dafydd and the gang. One of the most influential Top Docs with regard to the Walton Centre was Professor Robert Owen. Owen was the man who co-ordinated the cover-up when I complained about Dafydd and the gang in the 1980s. See posts ‘Enter Professor Robert Bluglass CBE’ and ‘In Memoriam – Professor Robert Owen’.
Nerys’s ex-husband served as special adviser to Michael Manley, PM of Jamaica, 1972-79. He has appeared on PBS and has been a guest columnist in ‘The New York Times’. One of his recent articles in the latter, “The Real Problem With America’s Inner Cities,” used the lens of developmental sociology to analyse recent protests and looting in West Baltimore. In October 2015 he received the Gold Musgrave Medal in recognition of his contribution to literature.
Nerys’s ex-husband is a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences; Ernest W. Burgess Fellow of the American Academy of Political and Social Science; a Member of the American Sociological Association; and a Member of the Board of Directors of the New York Civil Rights Coalition.

I mentioned earlier in this post that I have not blogged about the worst of my experiences. Neither have I blogged about the worst of other people’s experiences, but I won’t forget what has happened to people who dared challenge the Top Doctors. Think about it Michelle, you’ll know who and what I am referring to here… Dafydd’s gang and their international network inflicted enormous damage on a great many people. As I mentioned in ‘The Point Is To Change It’, they stop at nothing, which of course your interview with ABC yesterday demonstrated. Now I suggest that the whole lot of you do as I requested in a previous blog post and belt up, because I have a great deal of very, very damning evidence and those deaths of NHS patients in north Wales are not going to go away, no matter how many flattering comments rich, powerful Americans make about the Top Doctors.

It is worth noting that when Barack Obama was pushing his Obamacare through, there were a great many UK NHS scandals which were never reported in the media. There was no discussion of the enormous problems with corruption in the NHS on the part of those Americans who were using the NHS as an exemplar of all that is selfless and pure about healthcare provision.

Merfyn is not big and American, in fact as that pompous wally Michael Grade enjoyed reminding Merfyn at a Meet The Governors evening in Cardiff, he’s small and Welsh. But he took on a bunch of absolute bastards that the Big Americans would not.

 

God how bloody pathetic they all are. This is who they are all pushing out so many boats to protect:

Dr Dafydd Alun Jones

And The Lucky Winners Are…

Yesterday the winners of the 2018 Nobel Prize for Medicine were announced: James P. Allison, Professor of Immunology at the University of Texas’s MD Anderson Cancer Centre and Tasuku Honjo, Professor of Immunology at Kyoto University, Japan. Every media report that I have read/heard since they were declared the winners has discussed these two ‘cancer researchers’ and emphasised how their Cancer Research has paved the way for revolutionary new Cancer Therapies which have Saved Thousands Of Lives. Some of the accounts have also talked about Allison being inspired to Cure Cancer as a result of his mum dying of lymphoma when he was 10. Reporting the work of Allison and Honjo accurately would have made a rather less exciting story for the many millions of people who are not biologists.

Allison and Honjo are immunologists who have been working on a highly specific aspect of immunology since the 1980s. It is, if one is an immunologist, a very interesting and exciting area of immunology, but it is nothing like the media portrayals. Neither was Allison inspired to become America’s own Dr Finlay when his mum died. In Allison’s own words ‘I’m a basic scientist. I didn’t get into these studies to cure cancer, I wanted to understand how T cells work’. Which is what he has done. The story about a bereaved child wanting to save the world is a very obvious concoction, because if the media had simply reported the science, the vast majority of people would have no idea at all of what any of it meant and they would not be sufficiently ‘inspired’ to trawl through the text necessary to understand it. The sad reality is that when people like me talk about the sort of work for which Allison and Honjo have won this Nobel, people begin to drop off to sleep. The media friendly tale relating to Honjo is that of a man approaching Honjo on the golf course, shaking him by the hand and thanking him for curing his cancer. So someone on a golf course – if indeed the story is even true – recognised a Japanese biologist who is unknown outside of immunology, as he teed off and thanked him for saving his life. HOW he knew that the Japanese scientist saved his life is a conundrum, because the Many Life Saving Drugs which have resulted from Allison’s and Honjo’s work have, er, not actually been developed yet.

There are drugs based on the work of Allison and Honjo at clinical trials stage, but clinical trials take many, many years before drugs actually arrive in the clinic and the vast majority of them do not make it that far. Read the small print with regard to the Life Saving Drugs under discussion – of the very small number which have been developed, ‘significant side effects’ have been a persistent problem and the proudest boast is that there is ONE person who is still alive 18 years after the trial. One person is not statistically significant…

In the words of Professor Charles Swanton, Cancer Research UK’s chief clinician and a senior scientist at the Francis Crick Institute in London: ‘Thanks to work from Allison and Honjo, patients now have real hope, with over a third of patients deriving long-term benefit and even cures from such therapies.’ This is Cancer Research UK’s best PR – ‘hope’, ‘over a third deriving long terms benefits’. ‘Even cures’? Er no, not yet Charlie and you know it. Furthermore, in this context Swanton is only talking about one form of cancer – metastatic melanoma. Swanton stated that ‘the discoveries had been transformational for understanding the potential of the human immune system to control or even eradicate tumours and blood cancers’. ‘UNDERSTANDING THE POTENTIAL‘. It’s great if you’re an immunologist, but this is not a Medical Miracle Which Has Cured Cancer.

There are reasons why this Nobel Prize has been surrounded by even more dishonest hype that usual. One of those reasons is the appearance of a blog which has named a number of those with links to these Nobel Prize winners as having been involved in large scale research fraud and the most shocking misconduct while Allison and Honjo were engaged in their transformational research in the 1980s and 90s. See eg. posts ‘A Cause Close To Our Hearts’, ‘I Don’t Believe It!’, ‘A Trabant That Wants To Be A Ferrari’, ‘Oh Lordy, It’s CR UK!’, ‘Reports of Death Were Greatly Exaggerated’,  ‘Apocalypse Now’, ‘Interesting Facts’ and ‘Now Then…’                      ‘

Another reason is the enormous investment that various Gov’ts, including the UK Gov’t, have made in Cancer Research in recent years. The reason for this investment, certainly on the part of the British Gov’t, has been the dreadful outcomes of cancer patients in the UK. There is yet another report out this morning – with regard to cancer patients, the UK has poor diagnosis, poor access to treatment and people are dying earlier and at a greater rate than in many other European countries. On a global basis, progress in developing effective cancer therapies has slowed down so considerably that the Top Docs are looking a bit hopeless after all those decades of promises. So More Money is required. Not simply an admission that en masse research fraud and drug companies playing fast and loose with the results from clinical trials has remained unchecked for decades and is causing havoc.

Allison and Honjo are not based in the UK, but their field of research is international and there is much cross-fertilisation between them, their teams and people based in the UK.

One of those quoted in the media reports confirming what an all round great guy and wonderful harmonica player James Allison is, was Prof Sergio Quezada of UCL. Quezada, a graduate of Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, carried out his post-doc work with Allison in the US from 2004. In November 2011, Quezada joined the UCL’s Cancer Institute as Head of the Immune Regulation and Tumour Immunotherapy group. Quezada was a Cancer Research Institute fellow, 2005-08 and has recently been in receipt of a CR UK Career Development Fellowship. Since 2006, Quezada has been a young investigator member of the Millennium Nucleus on Immunology and Immunotherapy of the Chilean Ministry of Planning and has served as an external evaluator for the Chilean National Science and Technology Research Fund. UCL’s website tells us that data obtained from the studies carried out by Quezada’s research group ‘will not only inform the basic understanding of the immune response to malignancies but, in the context of the UCL Cancer Institute, will be used as a platform for the development of novel translational strategies in the clinic.’ So UCL could really benefit from this Nobel Prize if they play their cards right…

My posts ‘More Dogs That Didn’t Bark’ and ‘You Know I’m No Good…’ discussed how very helpful The London Clinic, some ‘independent experts’ of Top Doctors and then the British Gov’t, were to the Chilean mass murderer and torturer Augusto Pinochet when he arrived in London for surgery on his bad back in 1998, but found himself detained in The London Clinic under an international arrest warrant which had been obtained by a Spanish magistrate with the intention of extraditing Pinochet to stand trial for human rights abuses on Spanish citizens. Sergio Quezada is Chilean and retains excellent links with Chile. Pinochet remained as Commander-in-Chief of the Chilean Army until 1998. He was Senator for Life of Chile, 1998-2002.

He shut down parliament, suffocated political life, banned trade unions, and made Chile his sultanate. His government disappeared 3,200 opponents, arrested 30,000 (torturing thousands of them) … Pinochet’s name will forever be linked to the Desaparecidos, the Caravan of Death and the institutionalized torture that took place in the Villa Grimaldi complex.’ – Thor Halvorssen, President of the Human Rights Foundation, National Review. 

 

A brief look at UCL’s Cancer Institute’s webpages informs us that the Cancer Institute has collaborations with many who have been named on this blog as having done things that they should not have done. The Cancer Institute has a major collaboration with CR-UK. In 2015 CR-UK gave a £5 million Centres Network Accelerators Award to fund the UCL’s Cancer Research UK Centre involvement in a new initiative in cancer immunology and immunotherapy, building a network across various Cancer Centres in London. This will be led by Professor Henning Walczak, Scientific Director of the Cancer Research UK- UCL Centre and Professor of Cancer Biology at the UCL Cancer Institute.

The Network which the Centres Network Accelerators Award will accelerate consists of UCL, UCL Hospitals, the Royal Free Hospital, the Francis Crick Institute, King’s College London, Barts Cancer Institute, the Royal Marsden Hospital and the Institute of Cancer Research. Sergio Quezada was named as the Scientific Co-lead on the Cancer Immunotherapy Accelerator Award.

To summarise: Sergio’s former boss has just received the 2018 Nobel Prize for medicine. In 2015, Sergio, who was by then working at UCL, bagged £5 million from CR-UK to fund a line of research stemming directly from Sergio’s work with his former boss, yesterday’s Nobel prize winner. During 2016-17, this blog exposed many of Sergio’s colleagues in CR-UK as well as others as having been involved with serious research fraud and misconduct; I named people from Barts, the Royal Marsden and the Institute of Cancer Research in particular as participating in fraud in cancer research.

So this was a very fortuitous Nobel Prize for CR-UK and a number of institutions that were publicly disgraced in previous years with regard to their ‘cancer research’.

 

The current Director of the Bart’s Cancer Institute and lead of the Centre for Molecular Oncology is Nick Lemoine, Professor at Queen Mary University of London, who was appointed Director of Bart’s Cancer Institute in April 2004. Lemoine was educated at Abingdon School, 1971-76 before studying medicine at Bart’s, 1977-83. 

Abingdon is an impressive independent school in Oxfordshire, although parts of it sound rather like the public school satirised by Monty Python, in which boys are caught rubbing oil into the School Cormorant. In 1963, to mark the Quartercentenary of Abingdon School’s re-foundation, the Big Schoolroom was re-ordered as the Grundy Library (opened by HRH Ma’am Darling), together with erection of further buildings east of the Science Wing, the whole becoming known as Big School. In 1980, the Amey Theatre and Arts’ Centre was opened and the Sports Centre opened in 1984. Mercers Court was opened in 1994 by the Chancellor of Oxford University and Visitor of Pembroke College (which has historical connections with Abingdon School), Baron Woy Jenkins of Hillhead, a man who concealed much wrongdoing on the part of the Top Doctors, including the organised abuse of vulnerable people (see post ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’). Woy died in 2003, but Woy was very big mates with someone who is still with us:

Tony Blair crop.jpg

 

One of Woy’s fellow travellers in the Gang Of Four is loathed by the whole planet (see post ‘We’ve Been Expecting You…’), except for Top Doctors who remain deeply loyal to him and who have let him remain in their societies, which is very wise of them in view of the amount of dirt that he has on some of the biggest names in medicine:

Official portrait of Lord Owen crop 2.jpg

 

Many Old Abingdonians have reached positions of influence. One of them who is just four years older than Nick Lemoine is Lord Francis Maude, who was Tory MP for North Warwickshire, 1983-92 and for Horsham, 1997-15. Maude was on the Gov’t front bench for 25 years. In recent years his posts have included: Chairman of the Conservative Party, 2005-07; Minister for the Cabinet Office and Paymaster General, 2010-15 and Minister of State for Trade and Investment, 2015-16, under PM David Cameron. Francis Maude is a criminal barrister, who before he became an MP was a Tory Councillor on Westminster Council and party to the illegal activities of Dame Shirley Porter when she led the Council. In 1984, Maude was appointed as PPS to Sir Peter Morrison in the Dept of Employment. Morrison was at the time abusing kids in care in north Wales and elsewhere.

Whilst he was in the Shadow Cabinet Maude was a non-executive Director of Jubilee Investment Trust plc, which held 21% of US porn star Jill Kelly’s DVD business. He was also Chair of Mission Marketing Group which advertised for Playboy and was Director of a company which profited from sub-prime mortgages.

Francis Maude extolled the virtues of family values.

Francis Maude had a brother Charles, who died from HIV/AIDS in 1993, after becoming infected with HIV quite early on in the AIDS epidemic among gay men of the 1980s. Charles Maude was involved with London Lighthouse and supporting people with HIV from the mid-1980s. While Francis Maude went along with Thatcher’s homophobic nonsense and Section 28, he was well aware of the reality and he knew that many of those dying of HIV/AIDS were former kids in care who had been forced into sex work by gangs like Dafydd’s, while they were in care.

See post ‘Disgusting Of Tunbridge Wells And A Few Equally Disgusting Others’ for more details on Francis Maude and his circles.

 

Could a Nobel Prize have possibly been won on the the playing fields of Abingdon?

The Old Abingdonian ties (Griffen and Stripes)

 

 

And here’s the Abingdon Cormorant:

  • Double-crested Cormorant | Audubon Field Guide

 

When Nick Lemoine was a medical student at Bart’s that institution was still very much run by mates and umbrellas of Dafydd’s. Dafydd’s mate Professor Linford Rees, the dad of 1970s sex symbol Angharad Rees, led the first professorial Department of Psychological Medicine at Bart’s. Rees was parked at Bart’s from 1996 onwards, throughout the duration of the Waterhouse Inquiry. See post ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’ for details of the extensive network of Linford and his celebrity friends and relatives.

 

The website of Bart’s Cancer Institute still lists Professor Sir Nicholas Wright MD PhD DSc FRCS FRCP FRCPath FMedSci as the lead in their  Centre for Tumour Biology and as being a Fellow of the Faculty of Medicine, Imperial College. We are told that for 2012-2017, Nick Wright was funded by a £560,547 CR UK Programme grant. Nick Wright has occupied some of the most senior positions in CR UK for many years, including that of Head of the Histopathology Unit at CR UK. Wright’s wiki is still stating that he has been Warden of Bart’s and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry since 2001. Nick Wright was the Head and Prof of the Dept at Royal Postgraduate Medical School/Hammersmith Hospital when I did my MSc there in 1986-87. He was overtly racist in a good old fashioned ‘I hate the bastards’ way, none of your just being a bit un-PC for our Nick; he punched a technician in a Top Docs vs Technicians rugby match for being a pleb who had the temerity to tackle the Head of Dept and Prof; I was told repeatedly that Wright and his colleagues had committed major research fraud; and an academic from Liverpool who spent a year working with Nick Wright and his team with a view to a long term collaboration walked away saying that Wright et al were ‘a bunch of crooks’ and that he wasn’t going to touch them. Since I began this blog I have been told that Dafydd et al were in contact with Hammersmith while I was a student of Wright’s and that a few people at Hammersmith did very nicely out of agreeing to keep quiet about what was happening to me at the hands of Dafydd et al, who unlawfully arrested and imprisoned me in the middle of that MSc.

I note that Nick Wright did his initial training at Durham/Newcastle-upon-Tyne University, the stronghold of the paedophile gang in the north east, which supplied staff and children to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales for many years. See previous posts. The Bastard Of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Lord John Walton, served as one of Dafydd’s biggest umbrellas for many years, including in Walton’s capacity as: President of the BMA, 1980-82; President of the GMC, 1982-89; Warden of Green College, Oxford, 1983-89; President of the Royal Society of Medicine, 1984-86 (see post ‘Little Things Hitting Each Other’). Professor Eric Sunderland, a well-camouflaged paedophiles’ friend, had been summoned down from his senior position at Durham University to become Principal of UCNW (Bangor University) when Dafydd et al sent up a Paedophiles In Distress Flare in 1984, just two years before I began the MSc at Hammersmith.

Readers can discover more about Nick Wright and his mates’ activities by reading previous posts.

Guess who worked at RPMS/Hammersmith Hospital as an Imperial Cancer Research Fund Clinician Scientist, 1989-96? Nick Lemoine! Better still, Nick Lemoine worked for the ICRF under Sir Walter Bodmer, when Bodmer and the ICRF became embroiled in the massive 1990 Bristol Cancer Centre/Clair Chilvers research fraud scandal which involved a friend and former colleague of Dr Tony Francis ie. Dr Peter Mcguire and resulted in the (presumed) suicide of Professor Tim McElwain. See posts ‘Reports Of Death Were Greatly Exaggerated’ and ‘Apocalypse Now’.

Nasty business wasn’t it Prof Lemoine? Never mind, I see that you’ve Moved On!

In an interview given by Nick in which he remembers his happy days working with Walter Bodmer, Nick remembers that Bodmer ‘asked me what my ‘big challenge’ was going to be – to which I replied: “Defining the causes of pancreatic cancer and coming up with a treatment.” Now, 20 years later, we have the tools to apply our knowledge of genetics and molecules to the early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer, offering patients hope of containing the disease so that it does not spread around the body.’

There’s more hope for those ever desperate patients then! They’ll need it if they develop pancreatic cancer, by the time that it’s diagnosed the patient usually only has months to live. It’s a nasty one. At Hammersmith in 1986-87, the message was that if you develop a cancer, you really don’t want it to be pancreatic cancer. If you’re male, testicular cancer is not too traumatic, it has a very high survival rate. Which is why Mike Peters, the rock star who lives in north Wales, has served as such a rich stream of good PR for the Top Docs and butchers of that region, who’s clinical outcomes are some of the worst in Europe. Mike Peters of ‘The Alarm’ plays another gig to say thank you to the Top Docs who Saved His Life! I can understand why Mike is grateful to still be with us, but it may not have had a great deal to do with the excellence of the Top Docs of north Wales. Whoever treated Mike would have had to have been as bad as Dafydd to have not seen him through that. It’s difficult to get it wrong Mike, the testes are outside of the abdominal cavity, at a safe distance, so the cancer doesn’t metastasize. Not unless you are very, very unlucky.

Nick mentions in his interview that after spells of working in different hospitals, he returned to Bart’s, ‘where it all started for me. I never expected to come back here, but it’s a pleasure as we’re blessed with a fantastic new cancer hospital which has great facilities for both research and patient care. Bart’s medical school is also really committed to pancreatic cancer and we have recruited some real stars to focus on new treatments for this disease.’

So Nick didn’t expect to return to Bart’s – I wonder why? There will also no doubt be a few interesting reasons as to why Nick did return to Bart’s in 2004 from his position as Director of the CR UK Medical Oncology Unit at Imperial. The Imperial College which by that time had merged with Hammersmith Hospital as a result of Lord Brian Flowers’ political muscle and Flowers’ desire to transform Imperial into something earth shattering and of course world leading. The Lord Brian Flowers who concealed research fraud, organised abuse and much other wrongdoing in the various institutions which made up London University. See previous posts. The Lord Brian Flowers who came from Swansea and who remained loyal to his old muckers in Wales…

One also wonders why and how Bart’s got the fantastic new cancer hospital to which Nick refers. Particularly as Bart’s was earmarked for closure for many, many years, until well into the 1990s and the Top Docs of Bart’s did a great deal of loud squealing and called in global reinforcements to keep themselves in business. John Smith, then the Leader of the Labour Party died when Bart’s were unable to revive him after that heart attack of his in July 1994. The Top Doc who found that poor old Smith couldn’t be helped was the very same Top Doc who just three weeks previously, had shown Smith around Bart’s and explained that it would be a great pity if Bart’s or indeed any part of Bart’s were to close (see previous posts). In much the same way that Dafydd told me on the phone in 1987 that it would be a ‘great pity’ if ‘you were to be detained in Risley Remand Centre’. I just presumed that Dafydd had gone completely nuts because I was living in Leicester at the time and had committed no such crime that could ever have landed me in Risley Remand Centre. Brown heard the call and said ‘he’s trying to threaten you’. Weeks later I was arrested after Dafydd et al tried to frame me for ‘attempting to stab a doctor’. The only reason why I didn’t end up in Risley was that Sgt Morgan in Bangor Police Station and Jeff Crowther, a nursing officer at Ysbyty Gwynedd, didn’t tell as many lies as they were required to tell. Documents now in my possession demonstrate that Dafydd et al had the whole thing planned months in advance and that Risley Remand Centre, David Ewart of the Mental Health Act Commission, Ysbyty Gwynedd and Clwyd Health Authority were all fully on board with the plan. See previous posts.

Fings Break you see, as John Smith soon discovered.

So where were the pastures new for which Nick Lemoine headed after he had graduated from Bart’s? Nick went to the Welsh National School of Medicine, Cardiff University! He was a lecturer in pathology there, Aug 1985-Dec 1988. Which was when my friend Clare Cheek was a student and then a house officer at the Welsh National School of Medicine and when we used to visit each other! Or at least Clare was my friend until it was made very clear to her that she had better stop listening to what was happening to me in north Wales if she wanted to continue in her career as a Top Doc…

I have detailed in previous posts the very great wrongdoing which prevailed at the Welsh National School of Medicine during the years when Nick worked there. Much of the wrongdoing stemmed from the key role that the Welsh National School of Medicine and the wider Cardiff University were playing in concealing the crimes of the paedophile Labour MP for Cardiff West and Speaker of the House George Thomas – who in 1983, thanks to his friend Thatch, became Viscount Tonypandy (see post ‘It Wasn’t On Our Radar’) – as well as the crimes of Dafydd et al in north Wales.

Surely this must be a coincidence, but it was just before Aug 1985 that I began approaching politicians about the wrongdoing of the Top Docs in north Wales. So Nick rocked up in Cardiff right on cue! I don’t know about Nick Lemoine, but here are a just a few of the people who did know about me and about the many crimes of George Thomas and Dafydd’s gang:

Not that I had any idea at all that I was so famous at the time…

 

When Nick Lemoine first went to work at Cardiff, Professor Sir William Asscher was still working as a nephrologist there. In Dec 1986 Prof Ollie Brooke of St George’s Hospital Medical School was imprisoned for the possession of child porn. Ollie was a big name in the pan-European paedophile/trafficking ring of which Dafydd et al were a part and gosh did the Paedophiles In Distress send out an alert. The head of the Dean of St George’s rolled and he was replaced by William Asscher, who was called to London to help out those High Society traffickers and to take over as Dean of St George’s… Not that Asscher ever waved goodbye to his pals in Wales. He continued to keep a home in south Wales and he returned to live there full time when he retired from St George’s.

By the time that Nick left Cardiff in Dec 1988, I had worked with his pals at Hammersmith and for the Cancer Research Campaign labs at Nottingham University, where there was yet more research fraud in progress – in collaboration with a US drugs company to be precise – and I was working for the Cancer Research Campaign at the University of Surrey, for Prof Vincent Marks. Vincent’s brother was Dr John Marks, the then President of the BMA, who was locked in battle with Ken Clarke and the Tory Gov’t. They really hated each other, but as everyone concerned was concealing the crimes of Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring, it all ended in stalemate. Nick Lemoine knows some of the people whom I knew at Surrey!

After Nick left Cardiff, he joined the crowd at Hammersmith and Sir Walter Bodmer. In 1997 Nick became Director of CR UK Medical Oncology at Imperial College; Imperial by that time encompassed Hammersmith…

In 2004 Nick felt the call of Bart’s and their fantastic new cancer hospital.

Nick went from strength to strength once he was back at the once-doomed Bart’s. He was Clinical Director for the Central and East London Comprehensive Local Research Network and the NIHR Clinical Research Network, 2007-14, which included three biomedical research centres ie. UCL, Great Ormond Street Hospital and Moorfields Eye Hospital. UCL and GOSH were both institutions which concealed organised abuse.

Nick Lemoine was the Clinical Director of the Cancer Clinical Academic Unit at Bart’s, July 2008-Sept 2012. In Jan 2012 Nick became the Chair of the Challenge Awards Panel for the NIHR i4i Programme, a post in which he remains at present. In July 2012 he was appointed Director of Research and Development for the Cancer and Surgery Clinical Academic Group at Bart’s, another post in which he remains. In May 2014, Nick became Medical Director of the clinical Research Network, yet another post in which he remains. Since 2015 Lemoine has been a Visiting Professor and Consultant Executive of the Academy of Medical Sciences at Zhenghon University, China.

Since April 2015 Nick Lemoine has Chaired the Board of Trustees at the Medical Research Foundation; he has been a Trustee since 2008. Nick was appointed as Chair of the MRF by the MRC. The Chief Executive of the MRC when Nick was appointed as Chair of the MRF was Professor Sir John Savill. Savill is a nephrologist – he will have known William Asscher – who is an Honorary Consultant Physician and Nephrologist with the Lothian University Hospitals Division. He is a member of the Lothian Health Board and Chairs its Service Redesign Committee. Savill was Head of the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine and a Vice Principal of the University of Edinburgh. Savill’s research interest is in immunology and he completed his PhD on this in 1981 – at Hammersmith Hospital. Savill’s salary as Chief Exec of the MRC was between £170,000 and £174,999.

The Chair of the MRC – and who still is Chair – when Nick Lemoine was given that job as Chair of the MRF was Donald Brydon. Brydon knows plenty about medical research, being Chair of the London Stock Exchange. He is not even a Chair of the London Stock Exchange who has done a stint at Hammersmith Hospital. No, Brydon is a maths graduate of Edinburgh University. When he was at Edinburgh Brydon was Chairman of the University’s Conservative Association alongside Malcolm Rifkind as Secretary, with whom Brydon had been at school ie. at George Watson’s College. Brydon was also elected President of Edinburgh University Union. Brydon remained in Edinburgh to teach at the University for several years after graduation. So he’ll know a Gordon Brown who was an undergrad at Edinburgh, then a PhD student and was also elected as Rector. The Gordon who was PM, 2007-10. 

In 1977 Brydon began a 20-year career working at Barclay’s during which time he became Chairman and Chief Executive of the company’s investment arm, BZW Investment Management. From 1997 to 2002 Brydon was Chief Executive Officer at AXA Investment Managers SA. 

Brydon has also been Chairman of Royal Mail, Smiths Group, the London Metal Exchange, Amersham plc, Taylor Nelson Sofres, ifs School of Finance and EveryChild. Brydon has been a Director of Allied Domecq and Scottish Power.

EveryChild was an international development charity based in the UK, which dealt with children’s rights in particular the protection and aid for children growing up without parental care or family. In 2014, EveryChild worked with many of its former local partners and other grassroots organisations to create Family for Every Child; a global alliance of 27 local organisations working together to help vulnerable children and families. So Donald Brydon was tasked with keeping such kids out of the hands of trafficking gangs etc…

Who ever decided that a senior manager of Barclays would know anything about what is needed to achieve that?

 

Brydon resigned from the Royal Mail Group in 2015 to become Chairman of the London Stock Exchange Group. As Chairman of the Royal Mail, Brydon was paid an annual salary of £200,000 for working two days a week. Whilst in office for a period of six years Brydon oversaw the privatisation of the 499-year-old institution.Which I seem to remember was an idea conjured up by Mandy. Before Mandy and Miranda even try to explain Brydon’s salary when he was Chairman of Royal Mail, perhaps they’d like to tell me why, when Brydon was Chairman and at previous times as well, letters to me were opened before they went through my letter box. Letters from my lawyers who were handling my case against the North West Wales NHS Trust to be precise. It is a criminal offence to interfere with the Royal Mail, posties can be imprisoned for doing that and furthermore I have been told recently that some staff of the Royal Mail were/are required to sign the Official Secrets Act, such are the (alleged) precautions re intercepting the mail.

Furthermore, many years ago when I was living in Harringay in 1987, studying at Hammersmith and under attack by the north London gang linked to Dafydd’s, there was a spate of interfering with my mail. At one point, someone sent me my birth certificate through the post and that was one of the items which disappeared. I have always wondered whether a few people have been married in my name or whether a drugs mule is in possession of a passport and claims to be me. Having said that, Dafydd has been doing fake IDs for ages and as for criminal records, well my PNC was unlawfully altered to show convictions against my name for offences that I was never even charged with, so I won’t lose any sleep over that birth certificate. All to be expected by someone who has tangled with the Top Doctors.

The other letter that definitely was intercepted, read and forwarded onto me was back in 1988. I had applied for a research job in neuroscience in the Vet Science Dept at Edinburgh University – John Savill was probably running the place at the time – and their reply to me had gone for a little walk…

Donald Brydon is also Chairman of the Sage Group.

The only thing linked to medical research that Brydon has any knowledge of at all is how to create a demand for and market pharmaceutical products, in which he will have excelled at Amersham plc, which in 1982 was the first privatisation carried out by Thatch. Ah – but that is now what Gov’ts idea of medical research is all about isn’t it…

When I worked in biomedical research, a great many people were keen to get jobs with Amersham International, as it was then called. It was a magnet because the salaries were much higher than in universities. But then people would find that in their role as research scientists at Amersham, it wasn’t the science which was prioritised…

 

The website of the Medical Research Foundation tells us: ‘We exist to advance medical research, improve human health and change people’s lives’ and that ‘The Medical Research Foundation is an independent charitable foundation. Formed by the MRC, we grow and nurture people and ideas wherever we see research opportunities with great potential.’ The MRF also boasts that the heritage of the MRF ‘is remarkable: scientists associated with the MRC have received a total of 29 Nobel Prizes.’

Well as the whole process is rigged and simply involves people doing favours for their mates and everything possible to ensure that the Nobel Prizes are given to the people who’s work has already been identified – on the basis of previous nepotism and cronyism – to be worthy of investment by the MRC and its friends, that is hardly surprising is it.

  • The Don:
  • Sage Board of Directors

 

Nick Lemoine is also Director of Research & Development for Cancer at Bart’s Health NHS Trust and the Medical Director of the National Institute for Health Research Clinical Research Network for England. He is a member of the NIHR Strategy Board and chairs the NIHR Invention for Innovation Challenge Panel. He is currently a Non-Executive Director of the Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and is a Visiting Professor at the Academy of Medical Sciences of Zhengzhou University in China.

Nick has served as Chair of the Clinical Training and Career Development Panel at the Medical Research Council, and as Vice-Chair of the MRC Stratified Medicine Expert Panel. He has previously served as Chair of the MRC Stem Cell Strategic Grant and Fellowship Panels and has been a member of the MRC’s Molecular & Cellular Medicine Board. Lemoine chairs scientific advisory and grant award committees for a number of medical charities, including Diabetes UK, Prostate Cancer UK, Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund and Pancreatic Cancer UK.

Nick Lemoine was elected as a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences in 2006 and as a Foreign Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineers in 2017.

As well as Nick Lemoine’s mate Sergio Quezada, Allison’s former post-doc, someone else was all over the media commenting on the richly deserving Nobel Prize winners ie. one Professor Dan Davis. Dan Davies wrote the book ‘The Beautiful Cure’, ‘which describes the work which led to this Nobel Prize’. Yet the work is not a ‘cure’, beautiful or otherwise. Dan himself admitted of the ‘cure’: ‘It doesn’t work for everyone but lives have been saved…I think this is just the tip of the iceberg – many more medicines like this are on the horizon’. Yet no-one is sure IF lives have been saved; one person has lived a long time after taking The Beautiful Cure, a number of other people ‘benefited’ but suffered ‘significant’ side effects and that was the best that the much hyped PR could boast of. Never mind, if Dan wrote that book, it  suggests that he had plenty invested in The Beautiful Cure and he’ll be delighted to have heard who won the Nobel.

Who is Dan Davis? He’s the Professor of Immunology at Manchester University and is currently the Director of Research in the Manchester Collaborative Centre for Inflammation Research. Unusually, Dan did not train as a Top Doctor or a biomedical scientist, he is a physicist. After obtaining his PhD in physics at Strathclyde University, Glasgow, Dan began studying the immune system at Harvard University with Jack Strominger.

Prior to working at Manchester University, Dan Davis was the Head of the Immunology Section at Imperial College London. So somehow this physicist found himself in a senior position with the contingent from Hammersmith who had metamorphosed into Global Leaders under Lord Brian Flowers… Brian Flowers was of course a physicist himself who spent years of his career at Manchester as well as Imperial. As well as being Rector of Imperial, 1973-85 and VC of London University, 1985-90, Brian Flowers was VC of Manchester University, 1994-2001.

Dan Davis did his first degree – in physics – at Manchester University. He graduated in 1992. I think that Dan knows or used to know my former neighbour and landlord’s daughter, Gwen Parry-Jones! Gwen was doing her degree in physics at Manchester at the same time as Dan. I blogged about Gwen and her family in my post ‘Tan yn Llyn’. I and my friends lived in Gwen’s parents’ house  on Anglesey for the years when Dafydd et al first declared war on us. Dr D.G.E. Wood lived down the road, the village was full of Top Docs and Angels and Gwen’s dad Gwilym Parry-Jones was formerly a lecturer at UCNW when the institution was run by Dafydd and the trafficking gang. Gwen’s younger brother Adrian is a Top Doctor at Manchester University! I have been told that Gwen’s family were leaned upon by the Top Doctors and were duly rewarded when they succumbed…

Gwen was featured on BBC News Wales online today! Gwen is now the Executive Director of Horizon, who are responsible for the Wylfa Nuclear Power Station Project on Anglesey and she was featured on the BBC as an Inspirational Role Model to girls and wimmin! The girls whom Gwen is inspiring might be interested to know why Gwen did a degree in physics. It was because she did so badly in her A levels that she couldn’t take up the place that she had been offered at Manchester to do medicine. Her dad Gwilym rang them up and begged, but no, they were not going to have Gwen with those very poor A levels. So Gwilym – who was also a physicist – rang the physics Dept in Manchester and because no-one wanted to do physics, there was lots of spare places and Gwen was in!

What a pity that Dafydd hadn’t illegally imprisoned me by the time that you did your A levels Gwen! Manchester Medical School would have let you in then, no problem. Never mind, you and your family benefited from it in subsequent years, so you didn’t miss out too badly.

 

Predators: Much as I am enjoying exposing you all online, indeed I haven’t had such a laugh for years, I think that you ought to wake up to the fact that this is not going to go away. You have all been very, very naughty and appearing on the BBC and giving yourselves Nobel Prizes is not going to resolve this. You are in very, very deep doo doo. I’m not quite sure when Krakatoa will erupt, but believe me it will sooner or later.

 

Gwen’s mate Dan Davis spent the years of the Waterhouse Inquiry as a post doctoral Research Fellow at Harvard. Very wise Dan. ‘I know nuzzing’. Then Dan returned to the embrace of Dafydd’s associates at Imperial and reached the very top…

Professor Dan – his research interest is in Natural Killer Cells – also known as T cells:

 

Alternate

 

Dan is also Visiting Professor at Imperial College. The Manchester Collaborative Centre for Inflammation Research – the research institute of which Dan is Director – is funded by the University of Manchester, AstraZeneca and GSK.

Professor Dan became a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences in 2011. He currently holds a Wellcome Trust Investigator Award. He is also the author of a popular-level science book ‘ The Compatibility Gene’ (Penguin, 2014) which was picked by Bill Bryson as a Guardian Book of the Year. Don’t tell me that Bill Bryson knows what happened to me at the hands of Dafydd et al as well… Are you a specialist in Natural Killers as well Mr Bryson?

Bill Bryson is an American journo who loves Little Britain so much that he has been resident here for many years. He first visited the UK in 1973 and decided to stay after landing a job working in a psychiatric hospital – the now defunct Holloway Sanatorium in Virginia Water, Surrey. Bill met an Angel there, Cynthia, whom he married in 1975. Jesus, perhaps Bill Bryson does know Dafydd. Bill definitely knew the sort of things that happened to psych patients and he hasn’t ever told all either. Bryson wrote about Holloway Sanatorium in his book ‘Notes From A Small Island’ and recorded that the Sanatorium had a charm about it because ‘it was full of wandering lunatics’. Bryson worked at the Sanatorium in 1973 as a janitor on Tuke Ward. He mentions the ward as home to ‘long-stay male patients in a state of arrested insanity’. According to Bryson, the place was one of the most extraordinary communities in England. Many patients were allowed to wander freely down to the shops and back, mingling on equal terms with the locals, who affectionately referred to the institution as ‘the sanny’.

Yes Bill and the patients whom you didn’t write about were in there because they had knowledge of very serious wrongdoing. As might have the harmless loonies whom you did acknowledge but they were out and about because they had been sufficiently destroyed by their ‘care and treatment’ not to pose a threat to the reputations of the Top Docs or anyone else…

Bill: Patient F originally came from Surrey. The loonies from down there had dynamite – the lowdown on who was supplying underaged sex workers and drugs to rock stars and other celebs and the circumstances of the deaths of people like Brian Jones and Jimi Hendrix (see eg. post ‘Killing Floor – I Know Cos I Was There!’ and other posts…).

Bill Bryson lived in Kirkby Malham in North Yorkshire in the 1980s and 90s. He knew about Savile and the trafficking ring there….

Bill mingles with the best. In November 2006, Bryson interviewed the then British PM Miranda, on the state of science and education. You should have asked him what the hell was going on at Bangor University Bill, you interviewed Miranda just months after the brother-in-law of Miranda’s policy adviser John McTernan nicked my computer.

In 2005 Bryson was appointed Chancellor of Durham University. Here he is in his glad rags:

 

 

Bryson was elected an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Society in 2013, becoming the first non-Briton upon whom this honour has been conferred. Well I wonder how Bill managed that? His biography at the Royal Society reads: ‘Bill Bryson is a popular author who is driven by a deep curiosity for the world we live in. Bill’s books and lectures demonstrate an abiding love for science and an appreciation for its social importance. His international bestseller, A Short History of Nearly Everything (2003), is widely acclaimed for its accessible communication of science and has since been adapted for children.’

The things that Bill didn’t manage to include in his volume ‘A Short History Of Nearly Everything’ may be read on this blog.

 

It’s just as well that people who are linked to Dafydd’s network of umbrellas have won the Nobel Prize with their Beautiful Cure, because the Nobels this year have been rather tainted by the goings-on in relation to the Nobel Prize for Literature. Unfortunately it has been scrapped for 2018 as a result of one of those involved, Jean-Claude Arnault, being convicted of rape and sentenced to two years in prison days before Allison and Honjo were awarded their Nobel Prize. Jean-Claude wasn’t due to receive a Nobel Prize himself, but he styled himself as the Swedish Academy’s ’19th member’ and was married to Academy member Katarina Frostenson, a poet and playwright. The scandal involving Jean-Claude caused seven members of the Academy to stand down, including Katarina, as well as the Academy’s permanent secretary, Sara Danius.

For many years, Arnault and Frostenson ran Forum, a club in Stockholm that showcased exhibitions and readings by prominent cultural personalities including Nobel laureates. The club was partly funded by the Swedish Academy, prompting secondary allegations of a conflict of interest. As the scandal unfolded, it was reported that an internal investigation by the Academy had concluded that Arnault may have leaked the names of seven Nobel literature laureates – the subject of heavy betting – in advance of their announcement, including those of Bob Dylan in 2016 and Harold Pinter in 2005. The Harold Pinter who was married to Lord Longford’s daughter, Lady Antonia. Lord Longford and many members of his family and network knew a great deal about Dafydd, organised abuse, the Westminster Paedophile Ring and the wrongful imprisonment of witnesses (see post ‘Comedies Of Menace’).

The scandal first erupted last November when the Dagens Nyheter newspaper published detailed allegations by 18 women accusing Arnault – who describes himself as a photographer – of rape, sexual harassment, physical abuse and harassment over a period of more than 20 years, in Sweden and France. Eight women filed formal complaints, but all bar one of the cases were subsequently dropped for lack of evidence or because they had exceeded the statute of limitations. The woman in the case that came to trial – a writer and academic – told police of the 2011 assaults a few days after the Dagens Nyheter report was published, saying she had not come forward earlier because Jean-Claude Arnault was a good friend of her manager…

 

After finding out who were the colleagues of the Nobel Prize winner James Allison, imagine my delight when I read on ‘The Guardian’ online that an old favourite of this blog has won the Royal Society Prize for the Science Book of the Year – Sarah-Jayne Blakemore, daughter of Mr Oxford University, Mr Cambridge University and Mr MRC. I blogged about Sarah-Jayne in previous posts (eg. ‘They Are MYRIAD, They Are Legion’) and provided details of a number of her colleagues and mentors who either knew about Dafydd and the gang and remained silent or actively concealed their crimes.

Some of Sarah-Jayne’s colleagues have even worked with Dafydd, such as Professor Mark Williams, who recently collaborated with Sarah-Jayne on a Wellcome funded project in an attempt to demonstrate that Mindfulness not only ‘works’ but can be demonstrated to work by scanning people’s brains and other such techniques. Mindfulness was a research fraud perpetrated by Mark Williams in the late 1980s when Williams worked as a clinical psychologist in north Wales with Dafydd and the paedophile gang. Early editions of Williams’s books had acknowledgements to social worker Keith Fearns, one of those who perjured himself in court in an attempt to have me imprisoned. Williams co-authored with Judith Soulsby, another colleague of the people traffickers who will never be forgotten by all who encountered her and with Isobel Hargreaves, who was married to Ralph Oxley, a botanist at Bangor University who in turn worked with Chris Wood, the wife of Dr D.G.E Wood. They all peopled Bangor University when Dafydd and the gang ran the place. Most of Williams’s patients who’s miraculous recoveries formed the basis of his publications are now dead and many of them died shortly after Williams told the world that he was working Miracles in that sleepy little corner of Wales which was run by a bunch of gangsters. Mark Williams made it known in north Wales that he wanted a Chair at Oxford years ago – at about the time of the Waterhouse Report. See post ‘The Biggest Expert Of The Lot’.

Sarah-Jayne Blakemore is the Prof of Cognitive Neuroscience at UCL. Her network of friends and colleagues hold many positions on grant awarding bodies, as does Sarah-Jayne herself, including on the Wellcome Trust. Sarah-Jayne is continuing a family tradition. Colin Blakemore was Chief Exec of the MRC, 2003-07, which was when many of Sarah-Jayne’s colleagues received funding from the MRC.

Colin Blakemore succeeded Professor Sir George Radda as the Chief Exec of the MRC, with an annual budget of more than £700 million. The reputation of the MRC had been damaged by what was perceived as financial mismanagement, the introduction of unpopular funding schemes and a lack of transparency in its dealings with researchers. Blakemore launched a national roadshow to consult the scientific community and quickly changed the mechanisms for handling funds, rationalised the grant schemes, introduced new forms of support for young researchers and overhauled the communications policies of the MRC. He maintained his research activity at Oxford University during his period of office.

Blakemore argued for a stronger commitment to clinical research and to the translation of basic research into benefits for patients. These actions anticipated Sir David Cooksey’s 2006 “Review of UK Health Research Funding”, which resulted in closer working between the MRC and the Departments of Health, but which recommended that “funding levels for basic science should be sustained”. In the Comprehensive Spending Review at the end of Blakemore’s term of office, the budget of the MRC was increased by more than one third over three years. He was succeeded at the MRC by Leszek Borysiewicz.

On the completion of his appointment at the MRC in 2007, Colin Blakemore returned to the Chair of Neuroscience at Oxford before his appointment at the University of London in 2012.

Sarah-Jayne did her first degree at Oxford University and her PhD at UCL. She received much funding from the Royal Society as a post-doc.

 

Soon after Colin Blakemore’s appointment to the MRC, ‘The Sunday Times’ published a leaked British Cabinet Office document that suggested he was deemed unsuitable for inclusion in the 2004 New Year’s Honours List because of his research on animals – research considered “controversial” by a British Gov’t committee that oversees matters of science and technology despite being widely supported by political leaders and the public. Colin Blakemore was hated by animal rights activists, some of whom tried to kill him. However Blakemore’s research was also considered to be very dodgy by his fellow researchers. I was told in 1990 by a neurosurgeon who had worked with Blakemore at Cambridge that Blakemore’s research was cruel and could not be justified. This was a man who was very au fait with animal work and had done it himself.

I have never met Colin Blakemore, but I did meet some medical researchers who made it quite clear that they should be allowed to do whatever they wanted to animals in their labs and that no-one else even had the right to comment. Some of the experiments carried out by the Royal College of Surgeons, the Institute of Psychiatry and places like the Huntingdon Institute were downright cruel and many medical researchers themselves were of the opinion that they should have been stopped.

After Blakemore discovered that he had been blacklisted for an honour, he threatened to resign from the MRC, suggesting in interviews that his position as Chief Executive was now untenable:

It’s a matter of principle. The mission statement of the MRC is explicit. There’s a specific commitment to talk to the public about issues in medical research. How can I now go to our scientists, and ask them to risk talking about animal research, when there now appears to be evidence that in secret the government disapproves it, even though in public they’ve strongly encouraged it?

A Parliamentary inquiry investigating the matter implicated the Science and Technology Committee Chaired by Sir Richard Mottram. After expressions of support for animal experimentation from then PM Miranda; Chief Scientific Adviser David King; Minister for Science Lord Sainsbury; and the wider scientific community, Blakemore withdrew his threat to resign.

Miranda knows nothing about the use of animals in research and would have said whatever was convenient and Lord David Sainsbury was notorious for being a man who in return for huge donations to the Labour Party was given a job as Science Minister. Lord Sainsbury formulated mental health policy under Blair by the same method and after giving over £100 million to Cambridge University, Sainsbury was appointed Chancellor. More recently David Sainsbury has been bank rolling neuroscience research at UCL. See post ‘Inside Information About A Hergest Unit Death’.

People who have been part of the Science and Technology Committee are not always the ethical men/wimmin of science whom one would hope to find on that Committee. Stars have included Dafydd’s mate the Bastard of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne who laughably also Chaired the Medical Ethics Committee, 1993-94, while witnesses to the crimes of Dafydd’s gang were found dead:

The Lord Walton of Detchant

 In a House of Lords debate in 2015. Christ, imagine that looming over your bedside after you’ve just had neurosurgery. I bet that there was some butchery in Newcastle that had to be concealed.

 

Lord Bob has also been a leading light on the Science and Technology Select Committee:

The Lord Winston FMedSci FRSA FRCP FROG FRSB FREng
Lord Winston 2011 (Portrait).jpg

 

Lord Bob is media friendly but Lord Bob knew about the trafficking gang that was being facilitated by Prof Geoffrey Chamberlain et al at St George’s and the rest of the wrongdoing by Chamberlain et al (see post ‘Now Then…’); he knew about dear old Dafydd and the cartel of Top Doctors who unlawfully denied women in north Wales terminations and forced them into the hands of a dodgy private abortionist in Chester (see post ‘I Predict A Riot’ and ‘It’s Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not Arf’); and Lord Bob also passed an unhinged sexual harasser whom he unwittingly employed as a junior doctor onto Chamberlain’s team, Lord Bob obviously believing that the sexual harasser would feel at home there. The sexual harasser surpassed himself by having sex with a research assistant, in the lab, while telling her how much he wanted to shag one of the other research assistants. Who, when she heard about it, told me that under no circumstances would she be having sex with him. Chamberlain in turn passed the harassing shagger  onto someone else. Richard Penketh, the harassing shagger in question, ended up working as a Top Doctor in Cardiff, where Dr Brian Gibbons, the Welsh Gov’t Health Minister who concealed the crimes of Dafydd et al, gave him an award for excellence.

Ah, the doctors they were wonderful!

I remember you well Penketh! As no doubt does every other female under the age of 40 who has ever made your acquaintance.

Richard can now be found advertising his services as a Top Doctor who works for Spire Healthcare.

Here’s Penketh, picking up yet another award!

  • Mr Richard Penketh, Cardiff and Vale UHB, Innovation withi ...

 

 

Colin Blakemore finally bagged his K in 2014, so there was a happy ending.

And now Sarah-Jayne has won the Royal Society Prize!

Sarah-Jayne’s book is called, most appropriately, ‘Inventing Ourselves’. Which is pretty much what they have all done. They’ve given each other big grants and prizes, they’ve supplied rave reviews for each other’s books, they’ve invited each other onto media programmes and by such strategies, they have all become ‘experts’ and ‘leaders in their fields’. People despair of the cronyism and nepotism in institutions like Bangor and Aberystwyth Universities and I can understand why, but nothing, nothing at all, beats the Top Doctors in the London-Oxford-Cambridge triangle. Furthermore they are the ones who are at the top of CR-UK, the MRC and the Wellcome Trust and who end up sitting in the Lords.

 

I won’t dwell at length on Sarah-Jayne and her dad in this post, readers can read all about them in previous posts. However, I am interested in the judges who awarded Sarah-Jayne her prize.

The Chair of the panel of judges was Professor Dame Frances Ashcroft, who stated that ‘Inventing Ourselves’ is ‘truly a book that everyone should read’. Frances Ashcroft is the Royal Society GlaxoSmithKline Professor of Physiology at Oxford. Gosh, I wonder who funded that Chair. Frances Ashcroft holds Bachelors and Postgrad degrees from Cambridge and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1999. Ashcroft is the Director of OXION, a training and research programme on the integrative physiology of ion channels, funded by the Wellcome Trust.

Dame Frances has rubbed shoulders with a few of those we know and love on her journey upwards and not just Sarah-Jayne’s dad either. Frances Ashcroft went to Talbot Heath School, an independent school for girls in Bournemouth. Famous old girls include Dr Death’s mate Shirl. Ashcroft undertook post-doc work at Leicester University in the late 1970s, when that institution was heaving with people concealing the organised abuse gang in Leicester of which Greville Janner was alleged to be a member and which had links with Dafydd. The medical school at Leicester in particular was up to its eyes in it, as was the Dean of Leicester Medical School, Lord Robert Kilpatrick, who, like Lord John Walton, Chaired the GMC and loyally served Dafydd and his associates in that capacity. See previous posts.

Frances Ashcroft was one of five 2012 winners of the L’Oreal UNESCO Award for Women In Science. Because she’s worth it! Look, she has lovely hair and ooh I do like that dress as well, black goes well on her but you wouldn’t wear it in the daytime though would you and that necklace is nice, just right, understated oooh classy. Do you know I think that I recognise Frances, I’m sure that I met her when I was carrying out my post-doc work in Laboratoire Garnier.

 

 

Ashcroft is a woman of many talents and appeared (as a diner) on Masterchef during the 2011 series, along with several other Fellows of the Royal Society. Their taste buds are of superior quality to the taste buds of the lower orders, which is why the Fellows of the Royal Society were invited to taste the grub rather than the cleaners of the institutions in which the Fellows are employed. I expect that series of Masterchef was funded by the MRC and Wellcome Trust, which would have ensured that the diners weren’t just anyone.

Ashcroft’s work with Professor Andrew Hattersley ‘has helped enable children born with diabetes to switch from insulin injections to tablet therapy’. Hattersley is Professor of Molecular Medicine at the University of Exeter. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 2010. Hattersley did a degree at Emmanuel College, Cambridge and then trained as a Top Doctor at Oxford. He undertook further training in diabetes at Hammersmith Hospital. We’re on familiar territory aren’t we…

Hattersley was a lecturer at Birmingham University, 1993-1994 and he has worked at Exeter since 1995. So Hattersley lectured at Birmingham along with Dafydd’s mate Professor Robert Bluglass who concealed the crimes of Dafydd and the gang (see post ‘Enter Professor Robert Bluglass CBE) and Tony Francis’s mate Professor Ian Brockington (see post ‘Ian Brockington’s Mischief’). Exeter also employs a few mates of the gang from north Wales, as a result of Exeter’s collaboration with Professor Mark Williams and his Mindfulness con. For a long while, the head honcho for Mindfulness at Exeter University was Professor Willem Kuyken, but he relocated some years ago. Where did he go? Oxford University of course, Willem stepped into Mark Williams’s shoes when Williams decided to ‘retire’. Which coincided with one of Mark Williams’s victims from north Wales writing to the VC of Oxford University about his experiences with Mark Williams. The person in question was a close friend of mine from Gwynedd. He then became seriously ill and was refused all NHS care by the Top Docs in north Wales and lived rough in Scotland for a while. At the same time, the Top Docs decided that it was time to ruin my life all over again and I was unlawfully detained for many months. Imagine my surprise, when I finally got back on my feet, only to find that Mark Williams had decided that perhaps retirement wasn’t for him after all and had embarked on a major collaboration with Sarah-Jayne!

Then there were the extraordinary experiences that I had when I was interviewed for two research jobs at Exeter University; the NHS Chief Exec of the region who narrowly escaped a prison sentence after being convicted of fraud; the death of a young mentally ill man in the police station directly opposite the building housing Exeter’s Medical School, which specialises in Service User Led Research; and Professor Edzard Ernst, who was forced out of his job at Exeter because his research consistently demonstrated that some of the ‘therapies’ which the authorities at Exeter University wanted to promote were clinically ineffective. If Edzard had made up his data like a few other people whom I could name, he’d have kept his job. See previous posts for details of these Exeter Experiences.

Andrew Hattersley has bagged many honours and prizes, among them: 1998 Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians, London; 2004 Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences; 2016 GlaxoSmithKline Prize; 2016 EASD–Novo Nordisk Foundation Diabetes Prize for Excellence.

I have no idea whether Andrew Hattersley is any relation of Roy Fattersley, the other half of the ‘dream ticket’ which was going to get the Windbag elected as PM many years ago.

 

One of Frances Ashcroft’s fellow judges was Vivienne Parry, ‘science broadcaster and journalist’. Parry has presented BBC’s ‘Tomorrow’s World’ and ‘Panorama’ and contributes to ‘The Guardian’ online. Vivienne Parry is Head of Engagement at Genomics England.

Parry was educated at the independent girls’ school St Swithun’s, Winchester. She studied Zoology at Bedford College (London) graduating with in 1978 and then went on to UCL to study immunology and genetics…

Parry was Vice Chairman of Council of UCL and in 2009 was appointed a member of the MRC.

Parry’s first job was as National Organiser of the mother and baby charity Birthright,1979-94. Birthright was a charidee which has gone under several different names and was founded by Sir George Pinker, a friend of Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain. Pinker was the poshest of Top Docs and he was Surgeon-Gynaecologist to HM the Queen Lilibet, 1973-90 and oversaw many Royal births  (see post ‘Wimmin’s Wellbeing – The Fortnum And Mason Connection’).

Vivienne Parry worked closely with the Birthright’s Patron, HRH The Princess of Wales for 12 years. HRH Di might not have realised it, but she wasn’t the best advert for Sir George Pinker’s clinical skills; there are indications that Pinker screwed up the delivery of Prince William. HRH was left with the impression that she had simply experienced a difficult delivery, but no, George misjudged badly because he wouldn’t listen to the silly girl and he was quite lucky that William arrived in possession of a full complement of brain cells because that probably should have been a Ceasarian delivery… Not that anyone in the Royal Household clicked, George was wheeled out once more when Di was finally persuaded to have another baby, something that she had made clear that she was very unwilling to do because of what had happened before. Not that the Royals can be blamed for that, they have no way of judging the competence of their Top Docs, the Top Docs are a load of bloody liars who will not come clean when one of them should not be let loose on patients and so even Royalty get it in the neck.

Any Top Docs want to fess up as to which one of you it was who passed the gynae records of a high profile member of the Royal Family around London in the late 1980s then??? I heard the crude jokes. God, people would fucking clock you lot if they knew how you actually conducted yourselves. Never mind, give yourselves another Nobel Prize, it’ll keep the wagon on the rails for a few more years while the clinical outcomes of people in the UK steadily continue downhill and you can scream for more ‘funding’ for the ‘under-resourced’ NHS…

Vivienne Parry was briefly a Trustee of the Princess of Wales Memorial Fund. Di survived the births at the hands of George Pinker but not the drive  through that tunnel in Paris.

In September 2017, Parry was appointed to the board of UKRI (UK Research & Innovation).

Vivienne was very involved with the setting up of the Science Media Centre and Cheltenham Science Festival. In September 2017 Vivienne became Chair of the Cheltenham Science Festival and a member of the Cheltenham Festivals Board.

Here’s Lord Bob enjoying himself at the Cheltenham Science Festival in 2011, but I have no idea of whatever it is that he is boasting about the size of:

 

 

Other judges on the Royal Society Science Book of the Year panel which awarded Sarah-Jayne her prize were Dr Leigh Fletcher, the Associate Professor of Planetary Sciences at the University of Leicester  – Leigh Fletcher has spent most of his career at Oxford and Cambridge; Peter Florence, a literary gent who is Director and Co-founder of the Hay Festival; and Greg Williams, Editor of ‘Wired’ magazine, which is all about techie things. I very much doubt that any of these people are in a position to judge whether Sarah-Jayne has written a work of genius or a work of utter cobblers. However they will all know who her dad is.

There was another judge on the panel as well. None other than Professor Brian Cox. Brian is the BBC favourite who is also Professor of Particle Physics at Manchester University. Brian is not just a David Attenborough or a Johnny Morris who deludes children into believing that he is a scientist, Brian is a real live physicist and he knows his stuff. He also knew about the likes of Jimmy Savile cluttering up the BBC but he kept as quiet as everyone else did about it.

Before Brian Cox achieved stardom as a TV physicist, he was best known as the man who played with the rock group D:Ream, who were responsible for ‘Things Can Only Get Better’, the sound track to Miranda’s 1997 General Election victory. I was delighted to see the back of the Tories myself and I remember watching old Prezza on TV having a drunken knees-up. I did however have two mates who were Labour activists who told me that the arrival of Miranda as PM was no cause for celebration. They were quite right. Up in north Wales, life continued pretty much as before for Empowered Service Users. They continued to be found dead throughout the Waterhouse Inquiry, which had opened five months before Miranda became PM.

One big healthcare story in the news today is that ever increasing numbers of mental health patients are being tasered by the police while they are in hospital. The Hergest Unit was one of the first mental health units in the UK who called in the police to taser a patient. Lest anyone swallows the line that this might be needed in the case of Dangerous Patients, it is not. Not under any circumstances. Hospital in-patients sectioned under the Mental Health Act have no rights at all, absolutely none. Numerous Angels can pile on top of them and stay there for hours, even until the patient stops breathing and dies. It is not unlawful. Likewise the Angels can forcibly inject patients with Medication which kills them. The patients have no right to refuse, even if they know that they have reacted nearly fatally to such Medication on a previous occasion. All these were tried and tested methods of murdering patients before the introduction of police officers with tasers and they served the purpose just as well. Furthermore, if a detained mental health patient dies in police custody, there has to be an investigation and figures are kept regarding such deaths. There is no obligation for the NHS to hold such an investigation if the Angels murder a sectioned mental health patient and very few such deaths are investigated. Deaths of patients in mental health units are recorded but one has to fight tooth and nail to access the data.

Neither are people with learning disabilities faring any better. Horrifying figures were released today with regard to the use of ‘restraint’ on people with learning disabilities in hospital units in England. The number of times that ‘restraint’ was used on such patients rose by 50% between 2016 and 2017. That 50% rise wasn’t from 10 times to 15 times. In 2017, restraint was used more than 22,000 times. Once every half an hour. The figures cover adults as well as children. Face down restraint of patients with leaning disabilities – which Gov’t guidelines now state should never be used in any circumstances – was used 3,100 times in 2017. As with tasering mental health patients, this risks the patient dying and even if that doesn’t happen, it is terrifying for a distressed patient as well as virtually always unnecessary. Many families and carers of people with learning disabilities report how bad healthcare staff are at handling the person whom they care for. The staff have no patience or understanding, they demand that the patient participates in pointless activities which just escalates their confusion and distress and should the learning disabled person swear in distress it’ll be case of ‘now don’t you speak to me like that or we’ll have you arrested, we have a zero tolerance aggression policy here’. They have learning disabilities you stupid fuckers, they have no idea what a zero tolerance aggression policy means.

Many of those being restrained are categorised as having challenging behaviour as a result of conditions such as autism. Some of Sarah-Jayne’s colleagues at UCL, Cambridge and Oxford are considered to be global leaders in autism.

But the mates of those at UCL, Oxford and Cambridge have won their Nobel Prize and now thousands of lives will be saved and many more millions of pounds will find their way into the coffers of those institutions. Particularly as Sarah-Jayne has now won that Royal Society prize for her book explaining how they all Invented Themselves.

A Legend Lives

BBC News Wales have reported that 46,000 patients have had to find new Top Doctors in the past five years after GPs practices have shut. Last year’s closures were the highest in the five-year period, with the BMA saying the closures put ‘extra pressure’ on the system. The situation is particularly bad in north Wales, with many patients, including the elderly, having to travel many miles to see a GP. The patients will be on buses as well, not in expensive cars like the Top Docs.

Dr Charlotte Jones, Chair of the BMA’s GP Committee Wales, said surgeries were struggling to stay afloat due to problems recruiting and retaining doctors, the ‘sheer volume’ of workloads, ‘under-resourcing’ and ‘overwhelming bureaucracy’.

Duw it’s hard, with the Top Docs being among the highest paid people in Wales, with many of them working a whole three days/week and many now retiring at 55 yrs old .

Charlotte, can I ask if Dr D.G.E. Wood, who facilitated the trafficking gang in north Wales, is still playing a leading role in GP training in north Wales and the Royal College of GPs? In 2017 Dr Eamonn Jessup, a GP from north Wales, Spoke Out About The Crisis. Eamonn is or was a colleague of Wood’s, they were both popping over to Cyprus to hold clinics together!

BBC News Wales also reported today that homeless people in Wrexham – Wrexham now has one of the biggest homelessness problems in Wales – will be housed in shipping containers. Not permanently, that would be greedy of them. They will be housed in shipping containers over Christmas. They won’t all be able to fit into the shipping containers, because only a few shipping containers will be available and there are more homeless people than shipping containers, but at least a lucky few will have a shipping container over their heads for Christmas.

By the age of 40, D.G.E. Wood was living in the second most expensive house in the expensive (by Anglesey standards) village of Llandegfan. The most expensive house was owned by Top Doctor Terry Maxwell, the Medical Director of Ysbyty Gwynedd. Terry Maxwell presided over slaughter and scandal and was given a performance-related pay award in return for cutting the already terrible mental health services, in the run up to the Waterhouse Inquiry. After Maxwell did his best, many patients became destitute and some died. Maxwell was a heart and lung specialist who trained at Liverpool. Liverpool thought so much of Terry Maxwell that in 1984, Liverpool University rang up Terry Maxwell’s daughter Sonia and offered her a place to do medicine, even though she hadn’t applied to Liverpool. Sonia continued to turn her nose up at Liverpool and trained at one of the London hospitals instead. She returned to Gwynedd to practice as a GP in Llanberis. Sonia Maxwell is one of the GPs in Llanberis who unlawfully refused to treat a Hergest Unit patient who had complained after being wrongfully imprisoned on the basis of the perjury of Hergest staff. For further details see post ‘Maxwell’s Silver Hammer’.

Some 20 years ago, a cardiologist from Ysbyty Gwynedd, Dr David Thomas, attempted suicide by driving his car over the edge of a mountain. He was sacked by Ysbyty Gwynedd, publicly denounced, sectioned and admitted to the Hergest Unit where all confidentiality was broken. I always wondered what it was that Dr Thomas had been so frightened of, particularly as it involved Terry Maxwell (see post ‘A Mystery From Twenty Years Ago’).

 

Let me remind the dedicated, committed, Top Docs of the wider UK of a few more of their activities.

Readers might remember that after Blair won his electoral landslide in May 1997, the Tories began ripping each others throats out and held a leadership contest. This was the moment that Heseltine had wanted, another chance for him to have a final stab at becoming Tory leader and eventually PM, but Hezza was getting on a bit and had previously experienced a heart attack when he was living it up in Venice in 1993. Hezza had been filmed climbing from a hospital trolley into an ambulance looking like death warmed up and later maintained that this was because he had gout. Hezza’s gout caused him to take four months off work and the gout also prevented him from conducting himself as usual ie. waving the Mace around, making weak jokes about the Labour Party, flicking his hairstyle about and generally being a tosser. He did make an appearance at the Party Conference, but what with that gout, he wasn’t up and leading them all in a rousing speech, he just entertained the crowd with a few arm movements.

The candidates for the Tory leadership in 1997 were Ken Clarke, Peter Lilley, William Hague, Michael Howard and John Redwood. Hague of course won, among much bad feeling, because the constituency parties had overwhelmingly wanted Ken Clarke, but the Parliamentary Party wanted Hague. The constituency parties were unaware that the Parliamentary Party were eternally grateful to Hague for organising the Waterhouse Inquiry, thus concealing the barrel of shit which was the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal and the key role that Thatcher’s personal friend, the Tory MP for Chester, Sir Peter Morrison – who had been found safely dead on 13 July 1995 – played in it. Bing Spear, the corrupt Chief Inspector of the Home Office Drugs Branch who was so accommodating re Dafydd (see post ‘Little Things Hitting Each Other’), had died on 9 July 1995. So that was two problems out of the way before the Waterhouse Inquiry.

Heseltine didn’t in the end stand in the leadership contest, although he was the stand-out favourite when John Major announced his resignation. Heseltine is someone who knows about the Westminster Paedophile Ring and the role that Dafydd and the gang played in it. Heseltine was the Tory MP for Tavistock in Devon, 1966-74 and knew all about his fellow Devon MP, Jeremy Thorpe. Heseltine then served as the MP for Henley, 1974-2001 and held numerous Ministerial, Shadow Cabinet and Cabinet roles, under Heath, Thatcher and Major. He was in Gov’t with Peter Morrison and Norman St John Stevas – another MP whom I was told when I worked in London was known to be abusing boys – and will have known about the rest of the allegations of organised abuse that were concealed until very recently. Heseltine came from Swansea and there was an abuse gang in west Wales with links to Dafydd’s crew in north Wales.

Even Heseltine’s much trumpeted success at regenerating Liverpool, a cause close to his heart, was achieved – if indeed it was achieved – as a result of his close working relationship with Sir Trevor Jones, the Liberal leader of Liverpool City Council. Trevor Jones was born in north Wales to Welsh parents and he was networked into the empire of Dafydd’s gang (see post ‘He Knows Where The Bodies Are Buried’). It was Heseltine who arranged for the first of five bi-annual National Garden Festivals to be held in Liverpool in 1984. Trevor Jones arranged for the City Council to delegate the bid to the Merseyside Development Corporation, of which Trevor Jones was a Director. More than 3 million people eventually attended. Two of those people were Brown and me. When Liz Stables, the Angel who worked at the Student Health Centre at Bangor University, was still pretending to be friends with Brown and me and was extracting information from us which she then relayed back to Dr D.G.E. Wood and others in Dafydd’s gang, Liz gave us a lift to Liverpool to go to the Garden Festival. Liz knew Liverpool well, she had been a teacher there in the 1960s and used to tell me about the girls in her class whom she knew were working as prostitutes. Liz kept in touch with some of them as their adult lives really hit the pits and they ended up addicted to Class A drugs, in prison etc. At the time I thought that Liz was showing genuine friendship to some people who’d had a terrible time, but now I know that Liz was mates with Dafydd et al and that Dafydd’s gang were procuring young people for sex work outside of north Wales, including in Liverpool, I find Liz’s interest in the lives of those women rather worrying. Liz left Liverpool and teaching in 1969 to train and then work as an Angel in the old C&A Hospital in Bangor, where Dafydd and the gang were operating…

My post ‘Those Who Are Ready To Serve’ provided details of Heseltine’s role in the future of Westland Helicopters, a small ailing company in Somerset, which employed Janet Mitchell, a girl who was one of my playmates when I was young and who knew what had happened/was happening to me in north Wales, who’s career took off like a rocket after Heseltine took a sudden inexplicable interest in Westland.

After deciding not to stand for the Tory leadership in 1997, Heseltine, a very rich man thanks to his property developing and publishing business, devoted himself to his arboretum and 50 acre garden. There is archive footage of Heseltine and his family being interviewed after Heseltine left politics and every one of them ends up in tears at the memory of poor old Hezza never becoming PM, including of course Hezza himself. Is it not touching that as with Thatch, the only time that these people show any emotion is when they are kicked out of high office or indeed don’t reach it?

One of the archive clips about Hezza enlightened me as to the reason why Hezza decided not to stand for the Tory leadership in 1997. It was as a result of a conversation that Hezza had with his Top Doctor, the cardiologist Peter Mills, under who’s care Hezza was after that nasty attack of gout. After his conversation with Peter Mills resulted in Hezza deciding not to stand himself, Hezza supported Ken Clarke for the leadership.

Peter Mills, like all the best Top Docs, will have known about the Westminster Paedophile Ring, but Mills will have had a particular hotline to and interest in Dafydd and the gang, because Peter Mills, when a young Top Doctor, had worked at St George’s Hospital Medical School, which for years concealed Dafydd’s gang and a linked paedophile/trafficking gang in south London.

In an interview about his career, Mills was quoted as saying: ‘My father was a GP but I was always rather rebellious and so chose to read biochemistry at Oxford. I realised I was wrong and changed to medicine when it became apparent I was more interested in people than science. In contrast to today’s young medics, who seem forced to decide at medical school which career path to follow in order to shape their CV, we had much more freedom to choose our speciality relatively later. I believe cardiology chose me, rather than the other way around. An unexpected vacancy arose at St Georges Hospital at Hyde Park Corner where I was a locum and so I was invited to study Cardiology.’

Not only did many of the staff at St George’s conceal organised abuse, but Professor Oliver Brooke was employed as a paediatrician there from the mid-1970s until he was jailed for the possession of child porn in 1986. Brooke was a key figure in a pan-European paedophile gang. After Brooke was jailed, his colleagues and friends remained working at St George’s colluding with the gang, some of them being active members. See post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part III’.

Ken Clarke knew what was going on at St George’s when Clarke was Health Minister and subsequently Secretary of State for Health, 1988-90. Furthermore, it was when Clarke was in Health that he and Thatch had to sort out a little local difficulty re St George’s. The original St George’s Hospital at Hyde Park Corner had been developed as a result of a bequest given by the Duke of Westminster in the 18th century. After St George’s had relocated to its new site in Tooting in 1980, the then Duke of Westminster, Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor, told Thatch and Ken Clarke that he wanted the market price for the original site which had been donated by his ancestor. The Hyde Park Corner site was a piece of Knightsbridge real estate worth millions. The Gov’t refused the Duke’s request, but instead resolved the problem by letting the Duke buy the Hyde Park Corner site for £6000.

The Duke of Westminster was the President of the City of Chester Conservative Party’s Constituency Association, the local MP being Sir Peter Morrison. Gyles Brandreth succeeded Morrison as Tory MP for Chester and Gyles has been frank that Morrison ‘having sex with little boys’ was openly gossiped about by members of the constituency association as well as local people whom Gyles met when he was campaigning. The Duke of Westminster was a close friend of Carlo. Peter Morrison’s sister Dame Mary Morrison spent most of her life as Woman of the Bedchamber to Lilibet.

Boys from Bryn Estyn were taken to the Duke’s estate for ‘work experience’ but refused to return there without explaining why.

 

Peter Mills worked as a consultant cardiologist at the Royal London Hospital and subsequently the London Chest Hospital, which both became part of Bart’s Health, for around 35 years. It was Barts who found that they were ‘unable to revive’ John Smith, the leader of the Labour Party, after his heart attack on 12 May 1994. Matt Arnold, the Head of Bryn Estyn, died from an ‘unspecified blood disease’ on 9 June 1994. On 13 June 1994 the trial of Arnold’s friend and colleague Peter Howarth and Paul Wilson for sexual offences against boys in care began.

Dafydd’s mate Professor Linford Rees was a leading light at Barts for many years and provided much protection for Dafydd. Linford Rees was from west Wales and furthermore had extensive showbiz connections via his daughter, the actress Angharad Rees and her husband Christopher Cazenove (see post ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’). Barts’ concealing of organised abuse was given a further helping hand by the very close connections that Lady Juliet Bingley of MIND had with Bart’s – Juliet’s father had been a surgeon at Bart’s and Juliet worked for a while as a medical almoner (social worker) at Bart’s. Juliet’s son William continued the collusion with Dafydd et al in William’s capacity as Legal Director of MIND and then Chief Exec of the Mental Health Act Commission (see previous posts).

 

So after the chat with the Top Doc who was formerly of St George’s and Barts, old Hezza decided to offer Ken Clarke his support with regard to Clarke’s ambitions to lead the Tory Party and ultimately become PM. The Ken who was at the scene when the Duke of Westminster – Britain’s richest man – picked up a prime piece of Knightsbridge that the NHS was flogging off for a bit of loose change.

 

The information concerning Peter Mills’s career is provided on the website of Cavendish Medical. Cavendish Medical is a company which provides ‘financial planning’ services for ‘senior medical and NHS professionals’. I don’t think that Cavendish Medical simply manage the Top Docs’ Post Office savings accounts. Mills talks about his hobbies, which includes medieval art and explains that he has a ‘travel fund’ which enables him to jet around the globe in pursuit of this interest, the travel fund resulting from his Cavendish investments.

Peter Mills was Chairman of Cardiology SAC for the Royal College of Physicians, 2002-06, which involved Mills taking a leading role in the education of cardiologists. In 2015, the media reported that ‘Dr Peter Mills, the Football Association’s regional cardiologist for South East England’, was found by the High Court to have been negligent with regard to his treatment of Tottenham Hotspur footballer Radwen Hamed, who in 2006, when he was 17, suffered a cardiac arrest in his first game for the club and was left brain damaged. It was believed that the damages could reach £7 million.

 

The archive film of the interview with Hezza included a camera shot of the name plate of Peter Mills’ Harley Street practice, which showed that Mills shared his practice with Top Docs Duncan Empey and Michael Wareing.

I presume that Duncan Empey is Prof Duncan Empey, who has helpfully provided the following details on his LinkedIn profile:

Top Doctor Michael Wareing is an ENT specialist who works at The London Clinic. Wareing has his own website ‘145 ENT’, which contains the following information:

‘Welcome to the website for Mr Michael Wareing, MBBS BSc, FRCS(ORL-HNS), Consultant Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeon. Michael Wareing is a London based Consultant Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT) Surgeon. He has an NHS practice which is based at St Bartholomew’s & The Royal London Hospitals, where he has also been the Head of the ENT Department in 2 separate spells, 2003-9 and 2012-14. His private practice is based at The London Clinic where he has a fully equipped consulting suite at 145 Harley Street. Mr Wareing has over 25 years experience as a doctor and has been a consultant since 2000. He offers expertise in all aspects of General ENT as well as supraspecialist knowledge in Ear & Skull Base Surgery, Voice Disorders, Dizziness & Tinnitus, Sinus Disease and Children’s Ear Problems. He has concentrated his private practice in one place to ensure the very best continuity of care for all his patients’.

The ‘profile’ section on Wareing’s website tells us that: ‘Michael Wareing was educated at the Haberdasher Aske’s School for Boys, Elstree and entered St Bartholomew’s Medical School (Barts) in 1982. Following success in his preclinical studies, he took the opportunity to spend a year of further study to complete a BSc in Pharmacology. He returned to his clinical training at Barts in 1985 where he developed an interest in ENT, and won the Sydney Scott Prize for Otorhinolaryngology (ENT) in 1988. He qualified as a doctor in the same year.

He worked in a number of busy posts in Neurosurgery, General Surgery and A&E in southeast England during his general surgical training, before taking up an ENT position at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge. During this time he passed both the General Surgical and ENT Fellowships of The Royal College of Surgeons of England. His specialty ENT training gave him experience and expertise not only in District General Hospitals, but also in tertiary referral centres such as Guys, Kings & St Thomas’ Hospitals, and the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children. He also developed a particular subspecialty interest in Otology (diseases of the Ear) and Ear Surgery.’

Michael Wareing worked at Guy’s and Tommy’s with Ed Miliband’s Uncle Harry then! And of course with Dafydd’s friend and umbrella Professor Jim Watson the sex therapist (see post ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’).

‘In 1997 the King’s Fund awarded him a prestigious TWJ Travelling Fellowship to enable him to spend seven months in the Laboratory of Molecular Otology at the University of California at San Francisco. There he studied inner ear gene therapy and performed new and exciting research on the roles of liposomes and viruses in introducing genetic material to the cochlea.

In 1999 he was awarded the Skull Base Fellowship at Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge, where he was able to refine his interest in Ear, Acoustic Neuroma and Skull Base Surgery.

In 2000, Mr Wareing returned to St Bartholomew’s and The Royal London Hospitals as a Consultant ENT Surgeon. This was a high profile position which incorporated the dual role of maintaining a general ENT practice of adult and paediatric patients from the City of London, Islington and East End of London, whilst also being the Lead Clinician in Otology, Ear Surgery, Acoustic Neuroma and Skull Base Surgery. He ran a specialist Voice Clinic, and a Paediatric Ear Disease Clinic.

From 2003-9 Mr Wareing took over the additional role of Lead Clinician for the department of Otorhinolaryngology: Head and Neck Surgery at St Bartholomews and The Royal London Hospitals. This position allowed him to further develop the ENT services offered in both the City of London and the East End of London. He relinquished the role, only to be reappointed as the Lead Clinician in 2012. He enjoys working closely with many allied Health Professionals, where he is known as a helpful, reliable and considerate expert. He is in charge of the appointment and appraisal of ENT Colleagues, both Consultants and Junior Staff alike. He also has wide ranging responsibilities for the education of Medical Students within their ENT attachment, and also for GP Postgraduate ENT Education.

Mr Wareing’s Private ENT work started in 2000 when John Booth, his predecessor at Barts, saw an opportunity to retire by asking him to take over the care of his established Upper Wimpole Street Practice. In 2005 Mr Wareing chose to move his growing practice to the special setting of The London Clinic, Harley Street, where he and his colleague Mr Jonathan Harcourt are the only two ENT Surgeons to hold permanent rooms within the Clinic. Since that time he has equipped his Consulting Room with the very best equipment available for modern office based ENT practice.
Mr Wareing is also pleased to work as an Honorary Consultant for St Luke’s Hospital for the Clergy, Fitzroy Square.Mr Wareing is a well respected colleague, seeing patients from around the South East of England and overseas. He has featured in articles in the Daily Mail and the Observer, in radio shows and has written book chapters on a number of topics including the development of the ear and on voice problems. He has published over 40 peer reviewed articles and is invited to lecture within the UK and abroad.
Tatler Doctors Guide 2013
In 2007 he was one of only a handful of ENT Surgeons to appear in the ‘Tatler’ Guide to the top 250 Private Health Professionals in the UK. He also appears in the updated 2013 version of this guide.Mr Wareing lives in North West London. He is married to a doctor and they have 4 children. He is a keen (ex single figure handicap) golfer and has been pleased to win several medical golfing society trophies. He is also a keen cyclist, and cycled with a friend from Lands End to John O Groats in 2012, raising £25000 for Deafness Research UK and Help for Heroes.’
The Tatler-recommended charidee-supporting Mr Wareing provides for us on his website the address of his Registered Office: c/o Sandison Easson & Co. Rex Buildings Wilmslow Cheshire SK9 1HY
(Company No 09903639-Registered in England & Wales)
Wilmslow is located at what was the heart of geographical area of the Cheshire arm of the North Wales/Cheshire trafficking ring.

Wareing’s website helpfully introduces us to his ‘team’:

DR ANIL PATEL MBBS, FRCA

Dr Anil Patel

Dr Anil Patel is a Consultant Anaesthetist who works privately with Mr Wareing. He has an NHS practice at the Royal National Nose Throat and Ear Hospital, Grays Inn Road – just next door to the lawyers! – and has extensive experience in all aspects of ENT Anaesthesia. He is a particular authority on the difficult airway and the use of the laryngeal mask in ENT Anaesthesia and lectures extensively both nationally and internationally on ENT Anaesthesia’.

 

DR KAMRAN AHMAD BMEDSC, MBBS, FRCA

Dr Kamran Ahmad

‘Dr Kamran Ahmad is a Consultant Anaesthetist who works with Mr Wareing at Barts and The London as well as in private practice. He has extensive experience of ENT Anaesthesia and is dedicated to making the ENT journey.’

 

MR IAN SABIN BMSC, FRCSE FRCS

Ian Sabin

‘Mr Ian Sabin is a Consultant Neurosurgeon who works jointly with Mr Wareing at The Royal London Hospital, where they run a combined Skull Base and Acoustic Neuroma clinic on a monthly basis and receive referrals from around the southeast of England. Mr Sabin has been a Consultant for 16 years. He has particular expertise in the Neurosurgical aspects of Skull Base Surgery and a wealth of experience in the use of Gamma Knife Radiosurgery. His areas of interest include Skull Base Surgery, Cervical Spine Surgery,  and the treatment of trigeminal neuralgia and pituitary tumours. Private patients requiring both ENT and Neurosurgical expertise are seen individually by both Mr Wareing and Mr Sabin and are then discussed jointly by the Consultant to ensure optimisation of management, in conjunction with patient desires.’

Mr Sabin is available for those patients whom the Walton Centre have left to die because of their association with those who have challenged the paedophiles’ friends in north Wales (see post ‘A Vampire at Glyndwr University!’). Or probably not, if a distress flare has been sent up by Dafydd.

 

Mr Wareing of Very Expensive Private Practice has featured in the media, including in that organ dedicated to the NHS ‘The Guardian’, as well as the Mirror and the BBC. Not that Mr Wareing bothers to supply a photo of these publications, he prioritised ‘Tatler’ in that regard.

 

Mr Wareing works at The London Clinic, a private clinic which sprawls over much of the Harley Street disctrict of London.

John Biffen, the Thatcherite Tory MP who went to school with my father and who knew about the Westminster Paedophile Ring and the lengths to which a great many people were going to conceal it (see post ‘A Local Boy Made Good’), was a Trustee of The London Clinic, 1994-2002, which spans the whole period of the Waterhouse Inquiry and the publication of the Waterhouse Report.

In Ian MacGregor’s book ‘The Story Of The Miners’ Strike 1984-5′, MacGregor mentions that when he read that John Paul Getty II had given £100k to the striking miners’ Christmas appeal in 1984 which had been launched by Anne Scargill, Arthur Scargill’s wife, MacGregor called upon David Hart – the shady right wing figure who was behind many dark matters during Thatcher’s years in office – to arrange a meeting between MacGregor and Getty at ‘The London Clinic’ ‘where he was more or less permanently in residence’. At the meeting, Getty gave Hart a cheque for £100k to the National Working Miners.

Scargill’s daughter is a Top Doctor. Scargill’s friend Michael Mansfield QC who founded the Socialist Labour Party with Scargill knew what was happening to me in north Wales in 1993 because I wrote and told him about it. I wrote to Mansfield and explained that I had been prosecuted under the legislation introduced by Thatcher’s Gov’t to criminalise picketing miners after I attempted to get answers from the north Wales mental health services when Top Docs and Gwynedd Social Services social workers had broken the law. The much publicised police investigation into a possible paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire was underway when I was prosecuted and when I wrote to Mansfield. He wrote me a one line reply thanking me for my letter.

 

The website of The London Clinic is a source of high quality entertainment. We are told that ‘The London Clinic is one of the UK’s largest private hospitals, dedicated to providing the best, personalised healthcare with a breadth of surgical and medical expertise. The London Clinic has a number of premises across Harley Street and Devonshire Place…’

The London Clinic may be one of the UK’s largest private hospitals, but they’re all heart down at The London Clinic: ‘The charitable status of The London Clinic means that our surpluses are reinvested back into the hospital and our journey since 1932 has seen significant expansion and development’.

This charidee has been so successful at raising dosh to reinvest back into itself that The London Hospital’s Duchess of Devonshire Wing cost ninety million quid and that was a few years ago.

Highlights in the evolution of The London Hospital include:

In 1932, The opening of The London Clinic, which was performed by the Duchess of York, accompanied by the Duke of York (later King George VI) on 18th February 1932.

On 10 May 1949, a visit by Winston Churchill to Anthony Eden (later Lord Avon), presumably when Eden was laid up in The London Clinic.

In 1963 Elizabeth Taylor was spotted leaving The London Clinic with her knee in a splint after falling on a film set.

In 1989 HRH Prince Carlo opened the physiotherapy department at The London Clinic.

In 1991 HRH Princess Margaret, aka Ma’am Darling, who availed herself of the services of a few private Top Docs herself in her quest for chemical recreation (see post ‘Little Things Hitting Each Other’) opened the MRI unit in the radiology department. Ma’am Darling’s husband Lord Snowdon was the bisexual son of a Welsh Top Doc; Lord Snowdon was reputed to have used the services of rent boys and used to visit north Wales. As an elderly man, Lord Snowdon had a relationship with Marjorie Wallace, who’s selfless service to Top Docs who were involved with serious organised crime was pretty much unsurpassed (see post ‘One Dangerous Fucker’).

In 2002, TV star Martine McCutcheon opened the latest development of The London Clinic at 119 Harley Street. Martine was an actress in East Enders. As was Barbara Windsor, who probably would have been a more suitable celeb to have opened a new bit of The London Clinic.

In 2005, Nigel Havers opened the new consulting room suites at 145 Harley Street. Nigel is the son of Sir – later Lord – Michael Havers, the Tory MP for Wimbledon, 1970-87, who had many constituents who doubled up as Top Docs at St George’s. Havers was the corrupt Attorney General for England and Wales as well as for N Ireland, 1979-87, who consistently blocked the prosecution of ‘VIP paedophiles’, as well as the prosecution of nearly all not such VIP paedophiles in north Wales/Cheshire. His sister Lord Elizabeth Butler-Sloss concealed the extent of the Cleveland Child Abuse Scandal (see post ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas And The Culprits Were Named’) and during the brief few minutes for which she Chaired the IICSA, Butler-Sloss tried to prevent any investigations into the Anglican Church. Butler-Sloss is a high profile Anglican.

In 2007 the Duchess of Devonshire attended the official opening of the new consulting room building at 5 Devonshire Place. The Duchess of Devonshire, who was born Deborah Freeman-Mitford, one of the famous fascist family.

Debo’s daughter Emma married Tobias Tennant, son of the 2nd Lord Glenconner. Charlie Tennant, the eldest son of the 3rd Lord Glenconner, was the heroin addict who flogged photos of Princess Margaret in fancy dress at a knees-up to raise money for drugs. Charlie’s dad the 3rd Lord Glenconner  owned Mustique, the island that Ma’am Darling used to visit to let her hair down with her toyboy Roddy Llewellyn, where she wandered around in a kaftan like a Royal Elizabeth Taylor. Charlie Tennant died in 1996, of either Hep B or HIV, I’ve forgotten which. Debo’s daughter Sophia’s second husband was Alastair Morrison, Sir Peter Morrison’s nephew.

After David Cameron became PM, Debo gave media interviews stating that Cameron and his drip of a wife ‘were rather good for the country’. Debo was mates with Sam the Drip’s father, Sir Reginald Sheffield. Sam’s mum Annabel later divorced old Reggie and remarried William Waldorf Astor III – the son of Bill Astor who starred in the Profumo Affair – who was the nephew of her own stepfather, Michael Langhorne Astor.I cannot help thinking that if these domestic arrangements were occurring on a council estate in Merthyr Tydfil, they would be the cause of much pompousing and huffing and puffing from Call Me Dave.

 

2007 was a good year for The London Clinic. As well as Debo opening their new block, members of staff at The London Clinic joined the Xtreme Everest expedition. Lest anyone believes that the staff of The London Clinic just went up Everest to enjoy themselves, the website of The London Clinic reminds us that the Everest expedition was about Research and Helping People. The London Clinic is pursuing ‘research’ up Everest which will benefit hundreds of thousands of people no less.

In 2010, Joanna Lumley opened the consulting rooms and pathology laboratory at 116 and 120 Harley Street.

In 2010 The London Clinic received another visitor almost as glam as Joanna Lumley. HM the Queen Lilibet opened the new, purpose built, state-of-art cancer facility at 22 Devonshire Place. Debo didn’t peg out until 2014, so perhaps she was too busy admiring Cameron and the notepaper which his wife designed for a living to make it to the opening, so Lilibet substituted.

In 2011, HRH Princess Alexandra opened the new Eye Centre at 119 Harley Street and was greeted by Professor Robin Williamson.

In 2011, The London Clinic received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade. International Trade in what is not made clear.

In 2013, members of staff at The London Clinic were off up Everest again, continuing their investigations of human adaption to hypoxia at high altitude. Definitely not on a jolly.

In 2017 Camilla opened the new state-of-the-art 13 bed ICU at 20 Devonshire Place.

 

As all good charidees do, The London Clinic has a Patron, a Life President and a Board of Trustees.

The Patron is Camilla:

 

 

The Life President is The Duchess of Devonshire. Or was, until she turned her toes up.

The Board of Trustees of The London Clinic acts as its Board of Directors, overseeing and directing the activities of the charidee.

The Trustees are:

  • Mr Hamish Leslie Melville – Chairman
  • Lady Otton
  • Mr Manish Chande
  • Professor John Gribben
  • Mr Nicholas Melhuish

Hamish Leslie Melville, the Chairman of this medical charidee, is a banker. Melville is: Chairman, Investment Banking Committee of Royal Bank of Scotland Group plc; Chairman of Mercantile Investment Trust plc (formerly J.P. Morgan Fleming Mercantile Investment Trust plc; was MD of Credit Suisse Securities (Europe) Ltd, 2005-08; Chairman of Mithras Investment plc, 1994-08; Chairman of Old Mutual South Africa Trust plc; Director of Scottish Investment Trust plc, 1996-07; of Northern Recruitment Group, 1997-04; of Persimmon plc, 1995-10; of Jamestown Investments Ltd, 1992-94; Eclipse Film Partners No 1 LLP, 2006-14; 73 Cadogan Square Freehold Ltd, 2007-08; Erlangers Ltd, 2000-06; Scottish Woodlands Ltd, 1992-05; Brechin Castle Centre Ltd, 1996-02; Dunedin Capital Partners Ltd, 1992-95; West Highland Woodlands, April 1992-June 1992; Batsford Estates (1983) Co Ltd, 1991-92.

Melville is also the former Chairman of the National Trust, Scotland.

In Jan 2006, the business diary from The Torygraph reported that ‘Credit Suisse First Boston managing director Hamish Leslie Melville has upset his neighbours with plans to build a 43-turbine wind farm on his Lochluichart estate in the Scottish Highlands. Leslie Melville, along with a company formed by Savills and a Dutch wind farm developer, has applied for planning permission to erect the windmills on land the developers describe as “degraded habitat”. Local residents disagree. They’ve set up a protest group called A Wind Farm Too Far, arguing there’s plenty of wildlife and that the steel giants would wreck the view and threaten tourism. Apparently, rather than take an annual rent, the estate has opted for a stake in the venture. My Scottish mole estimates that if all goes according to plan, the project could rake in £625 m over the wind farm’s 25-year lifetime. Not a bad return for Leslie Melville – a former Chairman of the National Trust for Scotland – who was unavailable for comment.’

 

Lady Helen Otton is a Lady as a result of being married to a Sir, namely Sir Philip Otton, a former Lord Justice of Appeal, 1995-01. Lady Helen describes herself as a ‘conference organiser’. She was a Director of: Everyman Action Against Male Cancer, 2010-13; ICR Enterprises Ltd, 2010-13; The Maytree Respite Centre, 2005-10; Classical Opera, 2002-06; Nottingham Law School Ltd, 199394.

Some years ago Lady Helen Otton’s name appeared in a ‘Daily Mail’ article which named and shamed ‘acolytes’ who had ‘dined at tax-payers expense’ with Tony and Cherie Blair.

 

Manish Chande describes himself thus: ‘Manish is a senior partner of Clearbell Capital LLP and has over 30 years of real estate experience and is involved in all aspects of the business. Manish is Chairman of the Investment Committee. Manish co-founded Mountgrange Investment Management in 2007 and was the CEO of Mountgrange Capital, a private property investment and development group from 2002. He was previously a board director at Land Securities plc, CEO of Trillium, a pioneering sale and lease-back property business; and CEO of Imry, a publicly-quoted property investment and development company. Manish originally trained as a chartered accountant at Midgley Snelling & Co. between 1975 and 1980 and worked at Deloitte, Haskins & Sells in London from 1980 to 1985. Manish has been a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales since 1980. In 2008 he was elected a fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. He was a Commissioner of English Heritage between 2003 and 2011. In 2007, Manish was appointed a Trustee of The London Clinic and in 2012 he was appointed a Trustee of the Canal and River Trust.’

The London Clinic’s website says of Professor John Gribben: ‘Professor John Gribben graduated from the University of Glasgow in 1980. He subsequently trained in Haematology at University College London and in Medical Oncology at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School, where he remained on the faculty for 17 years before returning to the UK. He specialises in haematological cancers including lymphomas, leukaemias and bone marrow transplantation. His NHS post is as Consultant Haematologist and Medical Oncologist Barts and The London NHS Trust.’

He is the author of more than 300 articles and chapters in peer-reviewed publications and has a global reputation for his work in researching new drugs and forms of cancer treatment. He has grant funding from The National Cancer Institute and Cancer Research UK for pioneering studies in leukaemia and lymphoma. He has sat on and chaired numerous international executive committees dedicated to investigating new approaches to cancer care, and several of the editorial boards for professional publications which are focused on cancer. He has lectured across the world on new therapies for cancer treatment.’

John Gribben features on the website of Barts Cancer Institute, which mentions that he was a Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Fellow 1987-89, at UCL and a Fogarty International Fellowship, 1989-1991, at Harvard.

 

Nicholas Melhuish is a ‘fund manager’: ‘Nicholas Melhuish joined Amundi in 2013 as head of global equities. He was previously head of global equities at UBS Asset Management (2007-2012), lead portfolio manger for global equity strategies at Nicholas-Applegate Capital Management (2003-2007) at San Diego, California and in London and senior portfolio manager, international core equity, at Putnam Investments, London (1999-2003). Nicholas started his career as an analyst and small cap portfolio manager at Schroder Investment Management (1991-1999). He holds a BA (Hons) degree in Modern History from New College, Oxford and is also a member of the CFA Institute and the CFA Society of the UK.’

.

Take note: the Top Docs of The London Clinic trained in the NHS and for most of their careers held senior NHS jobs as well as extensive private practices. Now who was looking after their NHS patients when they were busy at that charidee The London Clinic? Just look at how many of those involved in running the charidee are people who work in global capitalism…

Other news:

The Governor of HMP Berwyn, the UK Gov’ts new ‘flagship’ prison – the biggest prison in the UK – which no English authority wanted in its back yard but was welcomed with open arms by the idiots who represent Wales in both the Senedd and Westminster, has been suspended over unspecified ‘allegations’.

 

Operation Pallial has resulted in another conviction of an elderly sex offender who worked in a children’s home in north Wales. Once more the bravery of the victims has been praised. If only someone had listened to them as well as the screams coming from the numerous other victims 30 years ago. I cannot share the police’s excitement at their inadequate action decades too late. The elderly paedophile who has just been imprisoned was not convicted until he was 79 yrs old because the full might of the British state was deployed to protect him, not the kids whom he assaulted. Many of them will be dead now anyway, kids in care and Empowered Service Users don’t usually make it as far as 79 yrs old.

 

Dafydd is in his late 80s, as is Lucille.

 

Sir Norman Bettison, the former senior officer of the South Yorkshire Police, has been told that he will no longer face any charges as a result of the Hillsborough disaster. Bettison had faced four counts of misconduct in a public office. He was accused of telling lies about the ‘culpability of fans’ and his role in the wake of the tragedy, but the CPS has now said that insufficient evidence meant there was no real prospect of securing a conviction. This is because of ‘changes in the evidence of two witnesses’ and the death of a third witness. How very convenient.

Sir Norman was accused of untruthfully describing his role in the South Yorkshire Police response to Hillsborough – where over 90 people died – as ‘peripheral’ in a 1998 comment to then Chief Inspector of Constabulary Sir David O’Dowd, when applying for the job of Chief Constable in Merseyside. He was also accused of lying to Merseyside Police Authority when he said he had never attempted to shift blame for the disaster ‘on to the shoulders of Liverpool supporters’. Bettison was alleged to have lied in a statement issued on 13 September 2012 following the publication of the Hillsborough Independent Panel report, when he said he had never offered any interpretation other than that the behaviour of Liverpool fans did not cause the disaster. He was also accused of misconduct over a statement released the following day in which he said he had never ‘besmirched’ Liverpool fans.

The court heard that the prosecution relied on two witnesses, Mark Ellaby and a woman identified only as Mrs J. It was alleged by Mr Ellaby that, over a pint in a pub while on an MBA course together in 1989, Sir Norman said he had been appointed to a team, the role of which was to blame the fans. Paul Greaney QC, defending Sir Norman, said it took ‘repeated requests’ from the defence for the other students to be traced by the IPCC. When ‘eventually’ they were, fifteen other students and a lecturer were contacted and ‘not a single one’ recalled Sir Norman expressing any ‘inappropriate view’ about Hillsborough.

Those witnesses with the very bad memories were on an MBA course. They will now be running the NHS, the Social Services, the County Councils, teaching in university business schools and of course like Bettison, some may have achieved high rank in the police.

It’s OK Dafydd and Lucille, you have nothing to worry about at all. I’ve got 10,000 documents, dozens of people were found dead, but you are absolutely safe from any risk of prosecution.

 

My post ‘Additional Security Measures’ details the fabrication of documentation by the Home Office and the order to stress the alleged bad behaviour of the fans rather than the inadequacies of the police that Home Office officials gave before the publication of the Report into Hillsborough by Lord Justice Peter Taylor. The Home Office were ably assisting Dafydd and the gang at the same time.

The police officers who fabricated and altered witness statements in the wake of Hillsborough were from the South Yorkshire force. The South Yorkshire force were involved in the brutality towards striking miners in 1984-85 and in the collusion with the paedophile gang in Yorkshire.

 

Bettison joined the South Yorkshire Police in 1975. In May 1993 he was appointed Assistant Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police. In 1998 he became Chief Constable of Merseyside Police. Bettison retired from the police in January 2005 to become Chief Executive of Centrex, which provided training and development to police forces in the UK and enforcement agencies throughout the world until it was abolished in March 2007. Bettison rejoined the police service in January 2007 as Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police. He attempted to secure a package to receive both a retirement pension from Merseyside and a salary from the new post; he threatened legal action but the claim was settled out of court.

Jimmy Savile was on excellent terms with the police right across Yorkshire. The Merseyside Police colluded with Dafydd and his gang.

 

After the Battle of Orgreave was brought to the UK public by the Great British Press, Liz Stables, the Angel at the Student Health Centre at UCNW/Bangor University, told me that ‘those miners should be shot’. Liz was part of the trafficking gang in north Wales. One boy at Bryn Estyn maintained that he’d been sexually assaulted at gunpoint. But then I was followed by a gun wielding policeman before I left Wales, as was someone who made a witness statement about me being threatened by NHS staff and managers from the North West Wales NHS Trust.

 

After the Court case in which all charges were dropped against Bettison, Bettison talked of the ‘loss of loved ones’, the ‘enduring tragedy’, ‘a devastating loss’, ‘all of our sympathies’ and then reminded everyone that ‘I have been forced to deny, strenuously, that I was guilty of any wrongdoing in the aftermath of the disaster’.

A few weeks after Liz told me that the miners should be shot, she told me that she’d been at an event where dear old Dafydd dropped by in his helicopter and that ‘Dr DA was great’.

Never mind a murdering paedophile gang, the boys in blue got their priorities right:

  • 30 years on, police face inquiry over Battle of Orgreave ...
  • Jeremy Deller interviewed by David Alan Mellor - | Photoworks
  • If we want the BBC to do its job we have to complain when ...

 

  • Richard Attenborough - Oh! What a Lovely War [DVD] [1969 ...

 

Now Then…

When I was an undergrad at UCNW I was friends with a PhD student who had done his first degree at Liverpool University. He was an outstanding student but he didn’t get a First because although he achieved the highest mark in his finals papers that anyone on his course had ever achieved, his final year project, by his own admission, was a laughable disgrace because he’d got bored with it and gone off fishing instead. The external examiner for his course had been Professor Geoff Sagar, who was a plant biologist at UCNW and who must have known about Dafydd and the paedophiles, but I didn’t realise that at the time. The PhD student entertained everyone at Bangor with his story of Sagar conducting his viva, which went very well until Sagar paused and said ‘Now Then’ – and pulled out the shameful joke of a project, dumped it on the desk and asked the student to explain himself. He didn’t really have an excuse, so he ended up with a 2:1.

As the Top Docs continue their screaming and stamping of feet amidst demands for more money, even in the wake of the Gosport War Memorial Hospital Scandal, I thought that it was about time that the Top Docs were given a Sagaresque Now Then moment. Keep reading, it’ll be coming later in this post.

 

In the aftermath of the Gosport Scandal, this morning the ‘Today’ programme on Radio 4 interviewed Professor Sir Brian Jarman. Jarman has been studying mortality rates in the NHS for years now – so he knew what was going on at Gosport but said nothing – and knows how dangerous and dire parts of the NHS are. Justin Webb just about dragged an admission out of Jarman that ‘perhaps’ a Gosport-like situation ‘might’ be happening right now somewhere in the NHS (read the ‘Daily Post’ Mr Webb, it won’t be rocket science to work out where the current Gosport is taking place). Brian Jarman was honest enough to say that whistleblowing is impossible in the NHS. Which is why Brian Jarman has never done it.

Brian Jarman was Professor of Primary Health Care and General Practice, 1983−98, at what is now called Imperial College School of Medicine and remains within that Dept in an Emeritus capacity. The wrongdoing of those within that institution has featured extensively on this blog, particularly the contingent at Hammersmith Hospital/RPMS.

Jarman was President of the BMA from 2003−4. So it’s Jarman’s peers who are lying, concealing patient harm and deaths, colluding with serious crime and terrorising anyone who looks in danger of being a whistleblower.

Jarman developed he Hospital Standardised Mortality Ratio (HSMR) methodology in his capacity as Director of the Dr Foster Unit at Imperial College, London. This method was applied by Dr Foster Intelligence.

Jarman is also part-time Senior Fellow at the Institute of Healthcare Improvement, Boston, USA.

Jarman originally trained in the natural sciences, graduating from Cambridge in 1954 and completing a PhD in Geophysics at Imperial College in 1960. Jarman and Imperial go back a long way then. He’ll know the Imperial big wigs who have starred on this blog previously, after using their knowledge of wrongdoing to advance the cause of Imperial College and themselves, for example Lord Brian Flowers (see post ‘A Bit More Paleontology’).

After working for Shell Oil Company for three years as an exploration geologist in the Sahara and elsewhere, Jarman switched to medicine, completing a medical degree at St Mary’s Hospital Medical School in 1969. He then worked at St Mary’s, as a Clinical Fellow at Harvard and elsewhere in hospital posts. Jarman has pioneered work in the development of socio-economic indicators of health status (Under Privileged Area scores or Jarman Index). Part of his current work includes calculating adjusted hospital death rates in England, USA, Sweden and the Netherlands and helping hospitals to use the analyses to introduce improvements in care in order to reduce death rates.

Jarman challenged the accepted ideas on the provision of beds in London and, following his special University Lecture at the invitation of Sir Colin Dollery, a Committee of Health Authority Chief Executives was formed to revise previous bed closure plans. Jarman was European Editor of ‘Journal Watch’ (a sister publication of the New England Journal of Medicine) until 2004 and frequently participates in national and international advisory work as well as in the development of Medical Informatics.

Malcolm Pearce of St George’s Hospital Medical School published in the New England Journal of Medicine when I worked at St George’s, 1989-91. On that occasion Malcolm published on the use of Doppler ultrasound scans. In 1995 Malcolm was struck off  for research fraud. Some of Malcolm’s previous work had been shown to be fraudulent as well, but I don’t think that his work on Doppler ultrasound was reinvestigated. Jarman will have known about Malcolm’s work being unmasked as fraudulent by 1995.

 

Sir Colin Dollery graduated in physiology and medicine from Birmingham University in 1956 and was Vice-President of the NUS. So he probably knew Fred Jarvis, the trade unionist, who was President of the NUS, 1952-54, General Secretary of the NUT, 1975-89 and President of the TUC in 1987. The NUT and TUC both concealed organised abuse, including that of Dafydd and the paedophile gang in north Wales.

Dollery worked at Hammersmith Hospital, 1958-96. He too will have known of the research fraud and misconduct that was rampant in that institution throughout those years. Dollery worked there when Hugh Bentall purchased his Chair in Cardiac Surgery and at the time of the worrying death of Bentall’s senior colleague Prof Ian Aird at Hammersmith Hospital not long before that (see post ‘Interesting Facts’).

Dollery was Professor of Clinical Pharmacology and Medicine at Hammersmith/RPMS. I did an MSc at RPMS, 1986-87, which was taught jointly by the Depts of Histopathology and Clinical Pharmacology, but I don’t remember Colin Dollery. However, some of the clinical pharmacologists spent so much time acting as consultants to Big Pharma that they were not in RPMS that much.

Dollery was Dean of the RPMS 1993-96 and Pro Vice-Chancellor for Medicine of the University of London over a similar period. So Dollery was PVC for London University when Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain and Malcolm Pearce carried out their research fraud at St George’s in 1994.

Colin Dollery is at present Senior consultant for GSK, a position that he has held since Sept 1996. He sits on their Global Safety Board, Scientific Review Board and until recently the Portfolio Investment Board. When I was at RPMS, someone there had good links to SKF – which later became GSK – because in 1988 our MSc class went on a three day placement to SKF. It was interesting, but we were told very frankly by the SKF pharmacologist who spent most of the time with us – who had left his job at Guy’s after being lured by a much higher salary at SKF – that he would never dare challenge his managers. In fact he was so frightened of them that when it was realised that we had left our bags in a room which had subsequently been occupied by a group of middle managers for a meeting, the former Guy’s researcher was too frightened to go into the room to retrieve our gear, on the grounds of ‘that sort of thing can really damage your career here’. So we had to wait ages for the meeting to finish. Nonetheless, he told us that it was great at SKF and he’d never bother to work in a university again.
The former Guy’s researcher might have toadied with the best, but it didn’t save his bacon. I kept in touch with someone who knew him and about 12 months later he lost his job. He didn’t even interrupt a meeting, his division was shut down at short notice and everyone made redundant because SKF simply felt like it.
Brian Jarman has had no such interruptions to his career. Jarman was so sought after by Gov’t that he was a member of the London Strategic Review Panel, set up by the then Health Secretary, Frank Dobson, to advise the Department of Health on the development of hospitals, medical education and the research needs of London, which reported in Feb 1998.
Dobbo and Blair concealed many disasters and deaths in the NHS, including of course Mid-Staffs (see post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part IV’).
From 1999-01, Jarman was a panel member of the Bristol Royal Infirmary Inquiry, which investigated the Bristol Children’s Heart Surgery Scandal. Which no-one ever got to the bottom of, because so many of their peers in children’s cardiac surgery could not be relied upon to give an honest assessment of their colleague’s work – including the crack team from Hammersmith/RPMS.
Jarman became a Fellow of the Royal College of General Practitioners in 1984. So he will have known Dr D.G.E. Wood, the corrupt GP who facilitated the sex trafficking gang in north Wales and who held high office in the Royal College of GPs for years from the 1980s onward. I bet that Wood knew Hugh Bentall as well and Hugh’s son Richard, who was a psychology student at UCNW when Wood was running that trafficking gang under the guise of being the UCNW students’ GP. Richard Bentall later became a Prof of Psychology at Bangor (see post ‘Interesting Facts’).
Brian Jarman was knighted in 1998. After the Waterhouse Report had heard evidence from the former residents of children’s homes in north Wales and their accounts of beatings and sexual abuse had been met with accusations from the Waterhouse Inquiry panel and lawyers that they were a bunch of lying bastards.

 

 

Now Then.

Geoffrey Victor Price Chamberlain (21 April 1930 – Oct 2014) was Professor and Academic Head of the Department of Obs and Gynae at St George’s, who along with his colleague Malcom Pearce became embroiled in a huge research fraud scandal in the mid-1990s, of which I have blogged much about in previous posts.

One of Chamberlain’s interests was in maternal mortality and he often presented to the triennal Confidential Enquiries into Maternal Death Reports. He frequently recommended GP Irvine Loudon’s book, Death in Childbirth, which he described as ‘first rate’ and Chamberlain authored articles on the subject.

During the 1980s, a patient died from eclampsia at St George’s. It should never have happened, but it did because her care was not what it should have been. There was much bad feeling towards Chamberlain on the part of the midwives at St George’s because, according to them, this lady died as a result of a cock-up on the part of a Top Doc, but if that had been admitted it would have damaged Chamberlain and his team, so Chamberlain investigated and wrote a report blaming a midwife instead.

 

Dr Irvine Loudon’s obituary describes Louden as ‘gifted as a doctor, particularly in the field of obstetrics, as a medical historian, and as an artist’. He published widely on childbirth fever and maternal mortality. The 2005 World Health Organisation Report ‘Make Every Child and Mother Count’ cites Loudon first in its references.

Loudon was born in Cardiff in 1924, the son of a Scottish GP. After the Cathedral School in Llandaff – Chamberlain attended this school as well – and Dauntsey’s School in Wiltshire, Louden read medicine at the Queen’s College, Oxford, joining the RAF during WWII. After Oxford, he chose general practice; he ‘wanted to serve the community and be in charge of his own work’. A forceful defender of the NHS (he refused to take private patients), Loudon brought about one of the country’s first purpose-built health centres next to the hospital. Loudon wouldn’t have needed private patients – he’d had his mouth stuffed with gold by Nye Bevan (see post ‘The History, Boys…’) and as a GP he could do what he wanted into the bargain.

An interest in medical history caused Irvine Loudon, in 1982, to join the Wellcome History of Medicine Unit as a research fellow. He was made an honorary fellow of Green College (now Green Templeton College), Oxford in 1999. Loudon’s other books included ‘Medical Care and the General Practitioner 1750-1850’ and ‘The Tragedy of Childbed Fever’.

So Loudon was another Top Doc who wrote the history of those who went before him and influenced what others wrote about more recent Top Docs, including his senior colleagues. Perhaps Loudon influenced the paedophiles’ friends of north Wales who developed a sudden interest in publishing on the history of the North Wales Hospital Denbigh in the 1990s, when the police investigations into the abuse of children in north Wales began (see post ‘More Alan Bennett’).

 Whatever Happened to Treason? – COUNTRY SQUIRE MAGAZINE

Loudon’s interests included graphic art. In Oxford he took classes in life drawing. In 1983 Louden learnt to etch at the Oxford Printmakers Co-operative and his well-observed and skilfully made etchings brought election to the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers in 1995. He exhibited mostly at Bankside Gallery, London, Oxford Art Society and the Dolphin Gallery, Wantage.

 

In his role with the National Birthday Trust, Geoffrey Chamberlain directed four national surveys of British obstetrics. The National Birthday Trust was a charity which promoted safer childbirth. After he left Oxford University in the mid-60s, Jeffrey Archer worked as a fundraiser for the National Birthday Trust (see post ‘Tuppence And His Fragrant Wife’).

 

In Dec 1994 Chamberlain was obliged to resign from his Chair, his Editorship of the British Journal of Obs and Gynae and his Presidency of the Royal College of Obs and Gynae, following the dismissal from St George’s of his colleague Malcolm Pearce for research fraud (see post ‘I Don’t Believe It!’). Although Chamberlain’s name was on the paper in question, Chamberlain gave evidence against Malcolm and swore blind that he had not known about the fraud and that this whole messy business was simply a result of a ‘gift authorship’, Chamberlain’s name only appearing on the paper because he was Head of Dept.

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

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

At the time of the submission of the Waterhouse Report, Alun Michael stepped down as FM and Rhodri Morgan succeeded him. Jane Hutt was the Welsh Gov’ts Health Minister. Hutt was a former social worker and her father was the Top Doctor Michael Hutt. Michael Hutt was educated at Eastbourne College, then at London University and at Tommy’s. After spending most of the 1960s in Uganda (yes, really), Michael Hutt returned to the UK to take up the Chair of Geographical Pathology at Tommy’s, which he held until his retirement in 1983, when he became an Emeritus. Professor Jim Watson, who worked at the Maudsley with Dafydd and spent years protecting him, subsequently passed through St George’s Hospital Medical School, setting up a sex therapy clinic there and then set up a sex therapy clinic at Guy’s and St Thomas’s. Ed Miliband’s notorious Uncle Harry, being a Top Doctor at Guy’s and Tommy’s, will also have been networked into this merry crowd.

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

 

Chamberlain was born in Hove, Sussex, although his father, Albert Victor Chamberlain, was the Lord Mayor of Cardiff’s Secretary. Geoffrey Chamberlain’s early education was at Llandaff Cathedral School, followed by Cowbridge Grammar School, before he went on to UCL to study medicine.

Chamberlain’s ‘flair at rugby at school’ earned him the nickname ‘Bodger’. Chamberlain revelled in that nickname, he had a tankard with ‘Bodger’ engraved on it which he produced at graduation for the entertainment and delight of the parents of the newly qualified Top Docs. People also gave Chamberlain prezzies and cards with ‘Bodger’ on them, although you could only call him Bodger if you were quite senior. I once remarked to a junior doctor at St George’s who was rather saner than the rest of them that I hoped that the name Bodger wasn’t a reference to Prof’s clinical skills and she said ‘don’t even think of joking about that…’

So as a Top Doc who was a rugger bugger with links to south Wales, Bodger will have known Tasker Watkins, the Greatest Living Welshman, friend of Ronnie Waterhouse as well as of Dafydd and the paedophiles. Tasker was President of the Welsh Rugby Union, 1993-04. He was also Presiding judge of the Chester and Wales Circuit, 1975-80 and was appointed Deputy Lord Chief Justice by Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane in 1988. It was Geoffrey Lane who infuriated the police when he released Prof Oliver Brooke of St George’s from prison after he was convicted of possessing child porn early on appeal. Tasker had numerous other roles, including that of the Chairman of the Mental Health Review Tribunal Wales Region, 1960-71 and President of the Welsh National School of Medicine, 1987-99, whilst senior figures in that institution concealed the serious crime of the Top Docs in north Wales.

There was a very strong link between the paedophile gang in north Wales and rugby. The Bryn Estyn staff were nearly all members of Wrexham Rugby Club and recruitment for staff was actually carried out via Wrexham Rugby Club. Even one of the very few women who was employed at Bryn Estyn was associated with Wrexham Rugby Club.

The Waterhouse Report admits that the link between Bryn Estyn staff and Wrexham Rugby Club was undesirable and problematic, but of course Sir Ronnie didn’t ask what the heck was going on. He just observed and moved on…

That link between Rugby and the gang may not have been confined to the Bryn Estyn/Wrexham contingent. Ioan Bowen Rees, the Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council whilst Dafydd’s mistress Lucille Hughes was Director of Social Services and the gang colonised the Council’s children’s homes, was President of Bethesda Rugby Club.

I know normal people who play rugby as well – one of my closest friends was a member of Bethesda Rugby Club for years – but it was probably that Rugby was being used as a networking opportunity on the part of the paedophiles’ friends, in the same way that the choirs in north Wales were. Rugby is popular among medical students and younger Top Docs. Dr D.G.E. Wood, a facilitator of the sex trafficking gang and a GP in north Wales, was an enthusiastic rugby player when he was young.

In the 1980s Cardiff Medical School’s rugby club were notorious and deeply unpopular. They went rather further than the usual drunken fuckwittery and one of them carried out sexual assaults on a number of women. There was much outrage on the part of other students in Cardiff that there was never any prosecutions and that he was allowed to qualify.

 

Chamberlain’s early appointments included posts at Hammersmith Hospital/Royal Postgraduate Medical School, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Queen Charlotte’s and Chelsea Hospital for Women and King’s College Hospital, London.

So Chamberlain will have known about the excesses at RPMS (see post ‘Interesting Facts’), as well as Jimmy Savile being associated with GOSH (see post ‘They Are MYRIAD, They Are Legion’). Audrey Callaghan, wife of James Callaghan, served as Chairman of the Board of Governors of GOSH, 1968-72 and then as Chairman of the Special Trustees, 1983-90. Audrey and Jim Callaghan knowingly concealed and colluded with Leo Abse to conceal the crimes of Dafydd and the paedophiles and played an active role in the expansion of children’s homes in north Wales in which children were abused and then trafficked (see post ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’). It was at Queen Charlotte’s and the Chelsea that Chamberlain worked with Top Doc to the Royals Sir George Pinker.

Following these London posts, between 1965-66, Chamberlain taught at the George Washington Hospital, Washington DC, USA. It was during these years that he performed his ‘controversial’ foetal and placental research, that is not widely discussed. 

 

Now Then.

Suzanne Rini’s volume ‘Beyond Abortion: a chronicle of fetal experimentation’ discusses Chamberlain’s research at the George Washington Hospital. Rini tells us that in the 1960s, some very controversial experiments on foetuses were carried out in the cause of trying to improve technology for caring for premature babies. The work was carried out on viable foetuses delivered as a result of hysterectomies. One Top Doctor involved in such work was Geoffrey Chamberlain and in March 1968 the American Journal of Obs and Gynae published some of Chamberlain’s work in this area, which Chamberlain had carried out whilst he was at the George Washington Hospital. The paper in question was entitled ‘An Artificial Placenta: The Development of an Extra Corporeal System for the Maintenance of Immature Infants With Respiratory Problems’.

Chamberlain practised and tested his equipment on living aborted babies whom he could not allow to survive the experiment.  He gave experimental therapeutic help to one aborted baby of seven months gestation but did not allow the baby to survive. The baby concerned was delivered by hysterectomy and weighed 900 gms. After delivering the baby, Chamberlain hooked it up alive to an artificial placental unit. Notes made by Chamberlain at the time read: ‘Irregular grasping movements, twice a minute, but there was no proper respiration. Once the perfusion was stopped however the gasping respiratory efforts increased to 8 to 10 per minute. The foetus died 21 minutes after leaving the circuit’.

The baby used in this experiment survived in total for five hours after delivery. Chamberlain received a professional award for this experiment.

Lest readers delude themselves that all this may have been worth it, when I worked at St George’s, Chamberlain and others were still dreaming of the day when an artificial placenta would be developed. However, St George’s was rated very highly for its special care baby unit, which is why high risk pregnancies were so often referred for care and delivery to St George’s. The babies in the St George’s SCUBA unit who were carefully nurtured by Angels, Top Docs and frequently filmed for TV documentaries, were often considerably younger than the baby upon whom Chamberlain had experimented in Washington.

Guidelines for the availability of legal abortion in the US were not set until Jan 1973 as a result of the Roe vs Wade case. Prior to Roe vs Wade, the availability  of legal abortion varied between states. In 1967, Colorado became the first state to decriminalise abortion in cases of rape, incest, or in which pregnancy would lead to permanent physical disability of the woman. Similar laws were passed in California, Oregon, and North Carolina. In 1970, Hawaii became the first state to legalise abortions on the request of the woman and New York repealed its 1830 law and allowed abortions up to the 24th week of pregnancy. Similar laws were soon passed in Alaska and Washington. In 1970, Washington held a referendum on legalising early pregnancy abortions, becoming the first state to legalise abortion through a vote of the people.

So when Chamberlain carried out live experiments on that 7 month old foetus in Washington at some point during 1965-66, I presume that he would not have been legally allowed to have aborted that baby. Did Chamberlain’s work only remain within the law – if indeed it DID remain within the law – because a hysterectomy had been performed on the woman, rather than ‘an abortion’? I’m not sure whether Chamberlain’s work passed through an ethics committee. If it did, I suspect that porkies were told before the work began. Furthermore, I very much doubt that the mother of that foetus had the foggiest idea of what happened to it after delivery. Although Chamberlain’s work was published, it could never have come to the attention of the wider public in the US, or there would have been outrage. I doubt that many people in the UK knew about that work either.

At the time that Chamberlain carried out his live medical experiments, the US Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare was John.W. Gardner, under President Lyndon B. Johnson. During the early days of WW II, Gardner was Chief of the Latin American Section, Foreign Broadcast Intelligence Service. He subsequently entered the US Marine Corps and was assigned to O.S.S., serving in Italy and Austria.

Gardner’s term as Secretary of HEW was at the height of Johnson’s Great Society domestic agenda. During this tenure, the Department undertook both the huge task of launching Medicare, which brought health care to senior citizens and oversaw significant expansions of the landmark Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, that redefined the federal role in education and targeted funding to poor students. Gardner resigned as Head of HEW because he could not support the war in Vietnam.

Gardner had much to do with education in the US. A native of California, Gardner attended Stanford University. After gaining a PhD. in Psychology at the University of California, Berkeley in 1938, Dr Gardner taught at Connecticut and at Mount Holyoke.

Gardner joined the staff of the Carnegie Corporation of New York in 1946, and in 1955 he became President of that group and concurrently, the Carneigie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. He also served as an adviser to the U.S. delegation to the UN and as a consultant to the U.S. Air Force, which awarded him the Exceptional Service Award in 1956. Gardner was a Trustee of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and of the Educational Testing Service and a Director of the Woodrow Wilson Foundation. He served as Chairman of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund Panel on Education.

Gardner was also the founder of two influential national U.S. organisations: Common Cause and Independent Sector. He was also the founder of two prestigious fellowship programs, the White House Fellowship and the John Gardner Fellowship at Stanford University and U.C. Berkeley.

In 1967 Gardner presided over the creation of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

Gardner served on the Stanford University Board of Trustees, 1968-82.

 

Rhodri Morgan spent time at Harvard as a young man.

In 1984, Prof Fergus Lowe created much needed good PR for the Psychology Dept at UCNW by making links with the American psychologist B.F. Skinner and hosting him at Bangor (see post ‘He’s Not The Messiah, He’s A Very Naughty Boy’).

 

Foetal experiments were subsequently banned, but at the Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioural Research, 1974-78, Caspar Weinberger, in his capacity as Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare under Tricky Dicky chose to reinstate them. In 1980 such work was forbidden again.

Caspar Weinberger was Chairman of the California Republican Party, 1962–68 and served as Secretary of Defence under Shotgun Ronnie, 1981-87.

Poster - Gone with the Wind

 

Dr Josef Mengele, Prof of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at St George’s Hospital Medical School, who experimented on pregnant women:

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

 

The St George’s special care baby unit was considered to be excellent and Chamberlain dispensed advice and patronage to charitable causes. Such organisations might like to bear in mind the sort of research that Chamberlain did which resulted in him creating an image for himself as being a man who loved being around women and kids. One of the biggest and most well-known charities which funds research into the care of premature babies is BLISS.

A quick look at BLISS’s website makes it clear that they will have funded some of Chamberlain’s colleagues. A number of the Trustees will have been associated with St George’s as well. The Trustees include civil servants from the Treasury, the DoH and other Gov’t Depts who had dealings with Chamberlain and some of them will have known that things at St George’s weren’t what they should have been. One Trustee has been on the Board of CR UK – CR UK also funded fraudulent research – and another one works for the Merton Clinical Commissioning Group, who operate on St George’s patch.

 

In 1954, Chamberlain entered the RNVR, before retiring in 1974 with the rank of surgeon commander. So he’ll have been part of the paedophiles’ friends Royal Navy network – Gwynne the lobotomist, Admiral Sir Alec Bingley, Louis Mountbatten, Jim Callaghan and others as detailed in my post ‘The Defence Of The Realm’.

After holding a consultant post at Queen Charlotte’s and Chelsea Hospital for 12 years from 1970, in 1982 Chamberlain was appointed Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at St George’s Hospital Medical School, where he remained until his resignation in 1995.

In 1989, Chamberlain was elected President of the section of obstetrics and gynaecology at the Royal Society of Medicine. Between 1971-94, he was actively involved in several areas of the RCOG, being elected Vice-President, 1984-87 and President from 1993-94 and being a member of the Council throughout that whole time. In 1994, Chamberlain carried out the 1994 Home Birth Study, which demonstrated the safety of planned home births.

When I worked at St George’s just three years before 1994, Chamberlain was famously opposed to home births. He told everyone that he had never forgotten seeing, as a young man, a woman die from a postpartum haemorrhage and it is only in a hospital that a patient can be given the necessary care quickly enough to save their life in such circumstances. It was Malcolm Pearce who was enthusiastic about births other than those in hi-tech units and Pearce had been keen to open a midwife led unit for low risk pregnancies. Before the research fraud scandal blew up in their faces, Pearce had featured in the press, alleging that he had encountered opposition from his colleagues because of his support for a midwife-led unit.

The other thing that I remember from St George’s is that if the spouse of a member of staff was booked in to give birth there, they’d always ask for Malcolm Pearce to manage the delivery, not Chamberlain. I also heard the occasional doctor say that they would not want Chamberlain to manage their birth if they delivered at St George’s. As with all the comments made by Professor Stuart Stanton’s junior doctors that they’d never allow him to operate on them, no reasons were ever given.

 

Over the years, Chamberlain had witnessed an increase in attendance of the partner during labour and once said that ‘the presence of the husband in the labour room has been an advance’, they ‘can act as a referee between midwife, doctor and the woman’. They can if they are well-educated men who know how to negotiate. Over the last few years, I have heard a number of accounts of young, not very well-educated men becoming distraught whilst their partners were in distress in Ysbyty Gwynedd. The solution to a stressed out man was exactly the same solution as to an Angel being faced with a distressed mental health patient – the hospital called security and had them thrown out or arrested. I was not the only person who heard about this happening and in one case a father who’s baby was gravely ill and at risk of dying was thrown out by the police. None of these men were violent, although their ‘aggression’ was always the excuse for the police being called. They were frightened and upset.

 

Chamberlain was an opera buff, as was the awful Dr Cathy Wilson who worked with Chamberlain. Cathy’s official status was Reader in Reproductive Physiology, but she was essentially a high society fuckwit who screamed and swore at colleagues in the lab and occasionally threw things around. It was admitted that Wilson was a ‘health and safety risk’, but the HR Dept – led by a dreadful little creep called Frank Ball – wouldn’t say a word because Cathy was a senior member of staff. Cathy made history by intending to carry out a menorraghia study and as part of this study she organised the collection of heaps of used sanitary towels from Angels who were experiencing this problem and who trustingly volunteered to participate in the research. The sanitary towels were packed into plastic boxes by Cathy and put into cupboards in a lab for safekeeping. And forgotten about. TWO YEARS LATER, one of the research assistants found them. It was not a pretty sight…

How Cathy ever became a Reader in Reproductive Physiology was a mystery. I was told by some Top Docs that Chamberlain had arranged for her to be promoted well above her level of competence because it added status to his Dept. Chamberlain seemed to be unable to challenge Cathy but I never understood why. Knowing what I know now about St George’s, I suspect that it will have been something to do with Cathy’s social position. She lived in a very grand residence in Notting Hill Gate and came from a family of some influence in high society in London, but I never found out who her family actually were. They were probably seriously impressive in the eyes of the police and the courts because the problem of Cathy getting pissed at medical school functions and then driving home was so well-known that new members of staff would be warned not to accept lifts from her, because she was frankly dangerous on the roads. She was never even stopped by the police let alone prosecuted.

Cathy had a few celebrity friends from the world of literature who’s names she enjoyed dropping, one of which was Salman Rushdie. She was out on the town with him when he was in hiding after the fatwah, so she must have been pretty good mates with Rushdie to have known where he was.

Another regular at the opera from St George’s was Dr Nicky Mitchell-Heggs, the corrupt occupational health physician who also colluded with Dafydd and the paedophiles of north Wales.

Biographies of Chamberlain always mention that one of his hobbies was carved wooden decoy ducks. Among the many Chamberlain legends that I heard at St George’s, this was never one of them. I’m wondering if it might have been one of his little in-jokes. This was a man whom people believed was a jolly, cuddly, nice old boy, who in reality had experimented on premature babies and then killed them and was colluding with a gang of paedophiles in north Wales as well as with another gang in London. He was also party to a massive research fraud, let his partner in crime take the rap and even gave evidence against him. In true Bodger style, Chamberlain and his nearest and dearest might have thought it witty to joke about his love of decoy ducks.

According to Cathy Wilson, Chamberlain collected lame ducks rather than decoy ducks. Bodger used to employ a few people who were down on their luck to do menial tasks such as preparing rooms for seminars etc and Cathy Wilson greatly resented the presence of these lower orders in her vicinity. They were the cause of much abuse and swearing, as Cathy railed against ‘Prof’s lame ducks’. Obviously, there was only a problem with the lame ducks employed to arrange furniture, rather than the moneyed lame ducks who were given senior academic positions.

Bodger’s wiki entry mentions him sporting Dr Martens. Yes, like the tankard with Bodger’s name engraved on it, those Doc Martens were well-known – they were worn to grand social functions and were much remarked upon. I know what the purpose of those Doc Marten was. They were an advertising and marketing opportunity. Bodger’s son was one of Wayne Hemingway’s business partners in ‘Red Or Dead’ and the Doc Martens were from ‘Red Or Dead’. This was always stressed. No-one ever referred to ‘Prof’s Doc Martens’, it was always ‘Prof’s Doc Martens from his son’s shop’. Furthermore, ‘Red Or Dead’ related material was strategically placed around the Chamberlains’ house in Wimbledon on the occasions when they were holding social events. No-one could meet Bodger and not find out that his son was part of ‘Red Or Dead’.

‘Red Or Dead’ were a very successful but still a relatively cultish brand when I knew old Bodger, but in the following years that business really hit the big time, clocking up awards and expanding into a leading global brand.

In 1990, ‘Red Or Dead’ marketed their famous Space Baby transparent Doc Martens, emblazoned with photos of babies faces…

 

Chamberlain’s wife Jocelyn was a Top Doc cancer researcher who worked at the Middlesex Hospital. Gwynne the lobotomist’s alma mater.

Chamberlain died in October 2014. The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists presents the Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain award every three years to outstanding trainees.

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

 

After being struck off in June 1995, Malcolm Pearce was subsequently employed as a medical negligence expert. This employment wasn’t mentioned in any media outlets for a very long time, but Malcolm and his history were so well-known that many people will have realised who the negligence expert proffering advice was. I have suggested that despite knives going into people’s backs all over the place at St George’s, a safety net would have to have been provided for Pearce because of the knowledge that he had regarding the very great wrongdoing of many of his colleagues. I explained that my own chances of publishing anything that would be taken seriously at the time were wrecked by Malcolm being struck off – he had been my last mentor and academic supervisor and was now disgraced. At the same time, all those paedophiles’ friends in north Wales reinvented themselves as historians of medicine and wrote a great deal of romantic, rose-tinted, frankly untruthful ‘histories of psychiatry in north Wales’, which were accompanied by Dafydd and other paedophiles’ friends appearing in the media remembering the happy experiences and excellent care provided by the North Wales Hospital Denbigh.

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

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

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

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

When all this went on, the VC of London University was Andrew Rutherford. Rutherford was a Byron scholar, a Scot who was educated at Edinburgh University and then Oxford University. Rutherford’s first lecturing job was at Edinburgh, but in 1964 he moved to Aberdeen University. He progressed rapidly and was soon a senior manager at Aberdeen, remaining there until 1984. At Aberdeen, Rutherford had a reputation for micromanaging and maintaining an iron grip on the institution.

After Dafydd unlawfully arrested and imprisoned Mary Wynch, a secretary who worked in the Agriculture Dept at UCNW (Bangor University), in 1979, a new Professor and Head of Dept was appointed for the Agri Dept, J.B. Owen. Owen’s family were landowners from Anglesey and they had funded the establishment of the Agri Dept in Bangor years previously. Owen proved to be deeply unpopular at Bangor and remained so. Owen’s previous post had been at Aberdeen University.

 

Andrew Rutherford left Aberdeen in 1984 to become the Warden of Goldsmiths College, London, a post which he retained until 1992.

Lord Brian Flowers was VC of the University of London, 1985-90. Flowers was from Swansea and spent years of his career at Imperial College. He had been responsible for the oversight of RPMS throughout the years of research fraud and wrongdoing there and it was business as usual when he ran the whole of London University.

Lord Stewart Sutherland, a philosopher of religion, succeeded Flowers as VC of London University. Sutherland studied at Aberdeen University and at Corpus Christie, Cambridge. In 1965 he was appointed assistant lecturer in Philosophy at UCNW and three years later took up a post at Stirling University. In 1977 Stewart was given a Chair at King’s College, London and was subsequently appointed Vice-Principal and Principal there in 1981 and 1985 respectively.

When Sutherland stood down as VC of London University in 1992, he was appointed Chief Inspector of Schools. He succeeded this post as Principal and VC of Edinburgh University in which position he served until 2002. Sutherland was the Provost of Gresham College, 2002-08.

Sutherland was knighted in 1995, the year in which Dafydd’s accomplices Peter Morrison and Bing Spear were found dead within four days of each other and the year in which the world was told that Dafydd had retired and the North Wales Hospital Denbigh had closed down, although neither was true.

Sutherland served on HEFCE and the equivalent body in Hong Kong. Following his involvement in the establishment of the Age Concern Institute of Gerontology at King’s College in London, he was invited by the incoming Blair Gov’t in 1997 to Chair a Royal Commission on Long-Term Care of Older People.

Stewart Sutherland will have known Ed Miliband’s Uncle Harry.

In 2001, with the Waterhouse Report safely out of the way, Sutherland was given a peerage. His Senior Supporter in the introduction ceremony to the Lords was Brian Flowers. His Junior Supporter was Lord David Wilson. Wilson served as Governor of Hong Kong, 1987-92, before Chris Patten succeeded him. Wilson was Master of Peterhouse, Cambridge, 2002-08 and also Chancellor of the University of Aberdeen, 1997-13. He was Lord High Commissioner to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland in 2010 and 2011.

 

 

As an NHS consultant who had been sacked, Pearce had the right to appeal to the Health Secretary, which at the time was Virginia Bottomley. Whether he did or not I don’t know, but Virginia, a former psychiatric social worker, had her hands full at the time with orchestrating the cunning plan that involved not putting Dafydd out to grass and not closing down the North Wales Hospital (see post ‘The Evolution Of A Drugs Baron?’).

 

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

On 9 June 1994, Matt Arnold, the Head of Bryn Estyn, died of ‘an unspecified blood disease’. In 13 June 1994, the trial of Peter Howarth – Arnold’s colleague and friend of thirty years – for multiple sexual assaults on boys at Bryn Estyn opened at Chester Crown Court. Paul Wilson went on trial with Howarth charged with sexual abuse of the boys. On 8 July 1994, Howarth was found guilty and sentenced to 10 years imprisonment. Wilson was acquitted on all charges but on 28 Nov 1994, Wilson pleaded guilty to three counts of physical assault.

 

My files show that on 13 June 1994, Ian Rickard, a mental health services manager in Gwynedd, replied to a letter from Dafydd re Dafydd’s ‘extreme concern’ regarding the safety of him (Dafydd), his colleagues and patients ‘in relation to the above woman’ (ie. me). Rickard offered to discuss me with Dafydd any time at Dafydd’s convenience…

On 4 July 1994 Ian Rickard wrote to Tony Francis regarding me bothering Dafydd and the possibility of banning me from the hospital, although here were no examples given of whatever I was supposed to be doing that was causing such distress. Rickard also asks Francis if I should be assessed by a forensic psychiatrist. At this time Rickard’s job description was that of a ‘mental health adviser’ for Gwynedd Community Health Trust.

 

My files contain a copy of a letter from Mrs Joyce Kaye of the Mental Health Act Commission (Maid Marian House, Nottingham) written to Alun Davies on 7 July 1994, reminding Davies that on a visit to Ysbyty Gwynedd the Commissioners had spoken to him about me and asking Davies for an update re his investigation of my concerns.

On 4 Aug 1994, Joyce Kaye from the MHAC wrote to Alun Davies again. This letter was from Joyce on behalf of the Chief Exec of the MHAC and mentioned that it was further to her letters of 7 July 1994 and 12 July 1994 wanting an update on Davies’s investigation of my concerns. I and another patient had told the MHAC of the constant abuses of patients in north Wales, of the complete lack of any investigations into the most serious of complaints and of the constant complaints about Dafydd’s unacceptable conduct toward female patients.

In the wider world, on 12 May 1994, John Smith, the leader of the Opposition, died at Bart’s after the Top Docs ‘could not revive him’ following a heart-attack. Dafydd’s mate and protector Professor Linford Rees ruled the roost at Bart’s (see post ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’).

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

Michael Mansfield lived in Wandsworth, just down the road from St George’s. Many St George’s staff lived in Wandsworth, including David Hole, the corrupt MSF rep who worked for Chamberlain. Chamberlain lived in Wimbledon, as did the crooked barrister George Carman QC, who knew about Dafydd and the paedophiles. Cherie was a member of the same chambers as Carman until 1988 and Blair was Carman’s pupil.

 

On 26 Aug 1994 Alun Davies wrote a memo which was circulated to Rob Evans, Tony Francis, Keith Fearns, Ella Fisk and Jackie Brandt, confirming a meeting on the same day to discuss my ‘present needs’ and to formulate a response to the Mental Health Act Commission.

The one really helpful person – my keyworker, the Hergest whistleblower – was not invited to the meeting to discuss my ‘needs’. Yet Fearns and Brandt, of Gwynedd Social Services – who had made it crystal clear that they hated me and had even lied on oath a few times in their attempts to have me imprisoned – had been invited to discuss my ‘needs’.  Fearns and Brandt had no part in my ‘care’ – although they were invited to nearly every meeting and CC’d into confidential letters about me.

On 1 Sept 1994 Alun Davies wrote to Joyce Kaye, giving details of my ‘care’ – presumably on a separate sheet, because I do not have those details. Alun Davies also told Mrs Kaye that Rob Evans – the Assistant Director of Gwynedd Social Services – would meet with me.

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

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

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

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

For further details on Rob and his child molesting colleagues, see post ‘I Know Nuzzing…’.

 

In the autumn of 1994 Dafydd had written to the MDU making ludicrous allegations, such as that I had thrown a rock through the glass door of his house at 3 am one morning, for which he did not have a shred of evidence (see post ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’). When Dafydd described events that had actually taken place as opposed to those events he described which had simply never happened at all, it was the actions of people other than me that Dafydd detailed. But nonetheless, Dafydd knew that I was the wicked genius behind it all. It was certainly true that Dafydd was the subject of much piss-taking and the butt of many jokes, but I didn’t need to encourage anyone to do that, Dafydd himself was quite sufficient. One example of ‘criminal damage’ to Dafydd’s Range Rover with which the MDU was supplied occurred when a Hergest patient drew a cartoon and carefully tucked it under one of the windscreen wipers. The incident had arisen because a group of patients had watched Dafydd arrive at the hospital, park illegally, ignore the pleas of the parking attendant – who was actually one of the patients, a man called Emlyn (one of those who died shortly after the day centre was shut and scores of patients became destitute) – and had started exchanging Dafydd anecdotes. One woman said ‘well he says the most dreadful things to you, but I think he’s trying to shock you into getting better’. Whereupon someone else said ‘what do you think he is, a Zen master??’ and drew a cartoon of a Buddha with Dafydd’s face under the slogan ‘prepare for Nirvana’ and placed it under Dafydd’s wiper. Not only did Dafydd attribute the incident to me – no I wasn’t responsible, but I did think that it was quite entertaining – but Dafydd maintained that his windscreen wiper had been wrenched back, buckled and needed repairing at the garage.

The MDU did not ask Dafydd to produce any evidence for any of his allegations. They presented them all in court as uncontested matters of fact.

On 11 Oct 1994 Dafydd wrote to John Mullen, the CEO of Gwynedd Community Health Trust, telling Mullen that he’d ordered the MDU to raise an injunction against me. Dafydd CC’d this letter to Keith Thomson. I don’t know what Thomson’s job title was at the time, but Keith Thomson eventually became the CEO of the North West Wales NHS Trust. Thomson refused to investigate serious complaints and also refused to co-operate with external NHS investigations. He declared me and a number of other people to be ‘vexatious complainants’ and on those grounds refused to answer our correspondence. On Keith Thomson’s watch, north west Wales had the second highest suicide rate among women of any area in England and Wales. It was Thomson who was summoned before the High Court in Cardiff in 2005 and ordered to hand over all documentation relating to me or face imprisonment for contempt of court. Hours later Thomson resigned. An article subsequently appeared in the ‘Daily Post’ entitled ‘Ten Years At The Top For Keith’ waxing lyrical about Thomson’s glorious career and how he was now retiring. Thomson was then awarded an OBE. He didn’t retire. Thomson went down to Pembrokeshire and became CEO of the NHS Trust there. Where there was havoc in the NHS and a paedophile ring in operation.

Rhodri Morgan was FM when Thomson was let loose on the NHS in west Wales. There was a paedophile gang in operation in west Wales which had links to the one in north Wales – Ioan Bowen Rees, the Chief Exec of Gwynedd County Council who was in post whilst the paedophile gang in were busy on his turf, had previously been County Secretary of Dyfed County Council, whilst a paedophile gang were busy there (see post ‘I Know Nuzzing…’). Rhodri’s wife Julie is a former social worker who was Assistant Director of Barnardo’s. Some Barnardo’s staff were involved with the abuse of children in north Wales.

On 3 Nov 1994 Dafydd obtained a High Court injunction against me on the basis of a truly extraordinary affidavit in which he discussed his anus of all things (see post ‘These Sharks Are Crap As Well’). The official who served the injunction on me had read it and was laughing, I was later told that the Bangor police heard about the contents and were having a good laugh and I took it into the Hergest Unit to show everyone. Tony Francis was attempting to section one patient on that day for unclear reasons and interestingly enough when this man recited the contents of the injunction and told the assessing ‘second opinions’ that it had been passed around the day centre to great amusement, all talk of sectioning him was quietly dropped. This man was yet another person who disappeared without trace after the day centre closed. He was a lecturer from Bangor University who had experienced a breakdown. Bright, well-read and someone who would have been in a position to witness just how outrageous and crazy Dafydd’s conduct was if there was ever any sort of inquiry into the abuse of vulnerable people in north Wales.

So is Dave Nunn now dead along with all the rest of the witnesses then Dafydd?

 

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

Meanwhile, I had made representation about Dafydd’s injunction. Not about the fact that Dafydd had discussed his anus in the affidavit or the crazed allegations that another patient losing his temper with Dafydd and telling Dafydd that he was going to stick a hand-grenade up Dafydd’s bum was evidence that I was about to murder Dafydd using a rectal method. I had made representation because among the gossip, speculation and mad fantasy in Dafydd’s injunction, he had breached confidence. He had provided clinical details of a matter involving me many years previously which had no relevance to the injunction or to any of Dafydd’s claims re the danger that I presented to him. I remembered how many times people had told me that they wouldn’t complain about Dafydd ‘because he knows things about me and he’ll tell people’. I knew enough to know that Dafydd was not on sound ground including some of the comments that he had in his affidavit. So I wrote to the NHS authorities in north Wales making it clear that Dafydd had now done what he was constantly alleged to do in the face of challenge – he had breached confidence and this time in the High Court in Liverpool.

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

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

I wonder if a few other people as well as Dafydd might have been worried about what I might write? A man who carried out medical experiments on live babies perhaps?

 

Although a full police investigation into the possibility of a paedophile ring in north Wales had been undertaken and closed in 1993, by the end of 1994, the Jillings Investigation into the abuse of children in the care of Clwyd County Council was well underway. In 1995 Nicola Davies QC conducted a review of the police documentation concerning child abuse in north Wales in order to ascertain whether a public inquiry was justified. It was an easy task because the documentation from 1989 onward was all missing. Dead former kids in care and psych patients were turning up everywhere.

Not that the police had found any evidence at all of a paedophile ring, despite a number of ‘care’ staff and teachers going to prison for abusing the children in their care. The month before Francis wrote to Dr Chris Jones asking for a ‘forensic opinion’ on me, Gordon Anglesea won his libel case…

 

On 9 Feb 1995 John Allen, the owner and manager of the Bryn Alyn Community, was convicted of indecent assault against six former residents and received six years imprisonment.

On 13 Feb 1995 Gwynedd Community Health Trust’s solicitor Tony Lane wrote to John Mullen, the Trust Chief Exec, re Dafydd’s breach of confidence in Court in Liverpool. Lane mentioned that Hempsons – the MDU solicitors – had acted for Dafydd.

On 27 Feb 1995 Hefin Davies, the Chairman of Gwynedd Community Health Trust wrote to Tony Lane requesting his advice. Was Hefin’s letter seeking legal guidance re Dafydd and the breach of confidence? No. Hefin was asking Tony Lane if there was any more that they could do to have me prosecuted.

The merry go round continued after this date – there were further attempts to have me declared dangerous and to prosecute me…

John Redwood was Secretary of State for Wales from 27 May 1993 until 26 June 1995.

On 26 June 1995 David Hunt returned as Secretary of State for Wales until 5 July 1995. Just for a few days – whilst the deal to pretend that Dafydd was being retired off was completed (see post ‘The Evolution Of A Drugs Baron?’) and the public were told that the North Wales Hospital had been shut (see post ‘The Paedophiles’ Friends Of Cardiff North’). It hadn’t. Gwynfryn Ward remained open and there are allegations that it remained open until 2000. But no-one can be sure, because no-one will come clean about when the hospital did eventually close, why so many lies were told about it and what happened to the patients whom were imprisoned out there illegally when it closed. Or failed to close.

So what was Gwynfryn Ward? It was a mother and baby unit. A mother and baby unit is usually a cause for ‘ah’, but it bloody well wasn’t at Denbigh. If anyone knows why an institution which was notorious for brutally warehousing women – often under-aged girls – whose pregnancies were inconvenient to other people, continued to provide that service after the rest of the building was literally falling down, please do let me know.

On 5 July 1995 Stephen Dorrell was appointed as Secretary of State for Health, succeeding Virginia Bottomley. William Hague became Secretary of State for Wales on the same day.

On 13 July 1995 Sir Peter Morrison was found dead at his house. Bing Spear had died four days previously. Brown was sacked from his job at Aston University in the same month.

Hansard records that in April 1995, Julia Lomas of the Lord Chancellor’s Department replied by letter to a question from Alex Carlile confirming that at some point in 1994 Mary Wynch had been paid a paltry sum of money in full and final settlement regarding her litigation against the Public Trustee (see post ‘The Mary Wynch Case – Details’). Mary had been unlawfully arrested by Dafydd, had been illegally imprisoned in Risley Remand Centre and then illegally imprisoned in the North Wales Hospital for a year. She had won her case against Dafydd, Clwyd Health Authority et al but they then simply refused to pay Mary her compensation unless Mary returned to court to enforce payment. Mary continued with the case, as well as with the case against the crooked cartel of lawyers and the Public Trustee who had, in collaboration with Dafydd, fleeced her of her money and property in the first place.

The Home Office under Michael Howard dealt the final blow in 1994 – without any public announcement – and ruined Mary. Mary was by then an old lady who had been screwed by a bunch of rural gangsters who had enjoyed the full backing of every Gov’t since she had been unlawfully arrested in 1979 by Dafydd. But the real problem went back to the early 1970s – when Mary’s mother died in the ‘care’ of one of Dafydd’s nursing homes. Mary told me that she was convinced that her mother had been killed. But Mary was nuts wasn’t she. Ooh – except that no, she wasn’t, as was admitted when she won her case against Dafydd.

Michael Howard was a barrister who grew up in the Swansea area.

In Dec 1995 Secretary of State for Wales William Hague announced that Nicola Davies QC’s review had concluded that a public inquiry into the abuse of children in north Wales was not justified. William changed his mind a few months later and orchestrated the Waterhouse cover-up.

Nicola is now Dame Nicola and has been the Presiding judge of the Wales Circuit.

In Feb 1996 the Jillings Report regarding the abuse of children in the care of Clwyd County Council since 1974 was completed. I can’t say that it was published because it wasn’t. It was heavily redacted and the only people who saw the Report were the insurers and legal advisers of Clwyd County Council – even the Council officers and Councillors were forbidden from reading it. The legal adviser to the Council’s insurers Michael Beloff QC advised that if any Councillor did get their paws on a copy the Council’s insurance should be withdrawn and the Councillors should be held personally responsible for the damages claims that would inevitable follow from former children in care suing. Beloff admitted that this would be a consequence because the abuse of children had been so serious and so well organised over decades that the Council had no defence. Beloff also advised that if Malcolm King, the one Councillor who would not stop asking questions about the abuse of children in the care of the Council, ever found out what was in the Report and publicised it he should be sacked (see post ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake…’).

 

Just to be on the safe side, on 1 April 1996 Clwyd County Council was dissolved as a result of a local authority reorganisation days after the Jillings Report was completed. So even if someone did get hold of a copy of the Report there was no-one to sue. The Chairman of the Local Authority Boundary Commission who decided that Clwyd County Council would be disappearing was Prof Eric Sunderland, the heavily camouflaged paedophiles’ friend who was Principal of UCNW. Eric stood down as Principal in 1995 to make way for another paedophiles’ friend, Professor Roy Evans, although Eric was fit and healthy and lived for another 30 years.

The Jillings Report was pulped, although in 2013 somebody actually found a copy that had escaped the pulping machine and at last the world was allowed to see what was within. It was so heavily redacted that it was virtually meaningless. All that was known was that something dreadful had gone on in Clwyd for decades and that a great many people had colluded with it.

After Clwyd County Council was dissolved, John Jevons, the Director of Social Services for Clwyd who had worked so successfully with the paedophiles and their friends for so many years (see posts ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake…’ and ‘Ain’t Nothing Clean – Not Even The Welsh Calvinistic Methodists’), found himself in need of a job. Director of the Social Services which played host to the biggest child abuse scandal in the UK? No problem. Cardiff City Council snapped him up and Jevons took up the post as Director of Social Services for them almost immediately.

Two of those with a sense of humour who were sitting on Cardiff City Council at the time that Jevons was given a warm welcome were Julie Morgan and Sue Essex. Julie, the social worker and Assistant Director of Barnardo’s – the Barnardo’s who’s staff abused kids in north Wales. Sue Essex – who later became Minister for Finance, Local Gov’t and Public Services in Julie’s husband Rhodri’s Gov’t – was Deputy Leader and then Leader of the Labour Group of Cardiff City Council, 1995-99. Sue had previously graced Leicester University with her presence. I presume that it was Julie and Sue who head-hunted Jevons then. For more Julie n Sue fun, see post ‘The Paedophiles’ Friends of Cardiff North’.

On 17 June 1996 Welsh Secretary William Hague announced the North Wales Child Abuse Inquiry  aka the Waterhouse Inquiry. On 25th Oct eighteen families were left homeless after a fire at a warehouse engulfed their houses. Eight people were taken to hospital and more than 100 residents of Lightfoot Road, Chester, were evacuated as the blaze destroyed a Pickfords storage depot on the neighbouring Hoole Bridge industrial estate. ‘The houses spontaneously combusted because of the intense heat’, said a Cheshire Fire Service spokeswoman. The warehouse held the care records of children from the Bryn Estyn and Bryn Alyn homes.

On 21 Jan 1997 the Waterhouse Inquiry began at Ewloe, Flintshire.

On 2 May 1997 Tony Blair became Prime Minister.

Peter Howarth died of a heart attack at HMP Wakefield on 24 April 1997, so if anyone was worried about him naming a few people involved in abusing kids in care who were rather grander than bottom feeding social care workers they didn’t have to worry any longer. Particularly as Ioan Bowen Rees had died suddenly in 1999, just before the publication of the Waterhouse Report, so as the man who ran Gwynedd County Council for years whilst the paedophile ring’s business boomed under his steady hands, Ioan wouldn’t be dropping any clangers either. Ioan was considered an expert on local gov’t and had advised Dafydd Wigley as well as the working party who set up the infrastructure of the National Assembly for Wales under Ron Davies – of the ‘Moment of Madness’ and ‘I Was Looking For Badgers’ fame – whilst Ron was Secretary of State for Wales. Ron had been appointed Shadow Secretary of State for Wales back in Oct 1993 by John Smith. When the crew at St George’s were still riding high and at about the time that I wrote that letter to Michael Mansfield.

The Waterhouse Inquiry held its last hearing on 7 May 1998 and on 30 Sept 2000 the Waterhouse Report was handed to the Secretary of State for Wales, Paul Murphy. Murphy stated that he was delighted that a full and transparent investigation had taken place, that there had been no cover-up and that there was no evidence of a paedophile ring outside of north Wales, let alone the involvement of Westminster or Whitehall figures.

For details of the well-planned co-ordinated attempt during 1997-98 on the part of the north Wales mental health services to have me banged up, please see post ‘A Solicitor’s Letter From North East Wales MIND’.

 

 

Just a thought. If Pearce and Chamberlain had got away with their research fraud, had I piped up about anything that I’d witnessed even decades later, no-one would ever have believed a word.  There would have been two world famous Top Docs who had made history who wouldn’t have had a good word to say about me. And Dafydd et al could confirm just how mad and dangerous I was.

As it is, what we have looks vaguely like this:

 

Vision’s Eton Mess highlights all the worst aspects of ...

 

A great big Eton mess.

 

Medical experiments on live babies who were then deliberately killed and the facilitating of paedophile rings? Get out of this one then BMA – you can’t say that you knew nuzzing, because Chamberlain published that research. Unless of course he made it all up, as he did in 1994.

 

‘There is no evidence of a paedophile ring with links to Westminster which was covered up at a high level.’

 

I will shortly be writing a post which will name a number of people who worked at Bangor University when I was doing my PhD, who found out about much of what I have detailed in this post and who collaborated together – although they all loathed each other – in order to try to bring down someone who was not a paedophiles’ friend…

Heart Of Darkness

My posts ‘Pets Win Prizes’ and ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’ detailed some of the influential members of Sir Ronald Waterhouse’s network. However, Ronnie’s own account as provided in his autobiography ‘Child Of Another Century’ suggests a network of influence so extensive that I do not have the scope on this blog to provide exhaustive details of Sir Ronnie’s numerous friends, relations and colleagues. So I will just use this post to highlight the remainder of those who are most important. I can highly recommend Ronnie’s autobiography to readers who want to experience the full horror of Ronnie’s mycelia as well as to anyone interested in the discriminatory brand of very rough justice that was handed out by Ronnie and his mates of which I gave a flavour in ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’. In one murder trial Ronnie relied on evidence which was given by the deceased to a witness by means of a ouija board – the defendant in that trial was convicted.

 

Ronnie spent many loyal years toadying to powerful people in politics and law, but he was a man of many social circles and those little suckers on his many tentacles attached themselves to people in many arenas. Ronnie liked a bit of glamour and had many contacts in showbiz and the media.

Ronnie was proud that the actor Emlyn Williams from Mostyn, who achieved stardom in the 1920s and 30s, was an alumnus of Ronnie’s school, Holywell County School (from 1945, it was Holywell Grammar). Emlyn starred in ‘A Murder Has Been Arranged’ and ‘Beyond Belief’. Emlyn’s mentor Sarah Grace Cooke taught Ronnie French.

There was another early brush with stardom for Ronnie when he went on the Welsh Schoolboy Camps – one of the attending teachers was Phil Burton, mentor of Richard Burton. Ronnie hobnobbed with the greats treading the boards again in the early 1940s when Ann, the daughter of Sybil Thorndike and Lewis Casson, stayed with the Waterhouse family.

Ronnie knew Guy Neale, the cousin of the actor Robert Morley. Guy was a friend of the famously bisexual George Melly who had sex with Peregrine Worsthorne when they were both at Stowe School (see post ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’). Years later as a man in late middle age, Melly offered a 16 year old boy in Bangor money to have sex with him following Melly’s appearance at Theatre Gwynedd. Ronnie observed that George Melly was ‘very camp in his manner’. Like so many of the paedophiles’ friends, George Melly had served in the Royal Navy (see post ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’). Melly retired to Wales, near Brecon.

Ronnie’s colleague Benet Hytner QC was the father of Sir Nicholas Hytner, the Artistic Director of the National Theatre. Sir Nicholas’s mother Joyce is a theatrical fundraiser and sat on the Boards of a number of theatres, including the Royal Court Theatre. Ronnie Waterhouse used to hang out at the Royal Court Theatre with the molester Clement Freud.

Throughout the whole of the 1970s and 80s and for the first half of the 1990s Ronnie lived in St John’s Wood, which was packed with famous names including a good smattering of luvvies. Ronnie was for a time President of the St John’s Wood Society. He won’t have missed any toadying opportunities while in that position.

Ronnie was an opera buff and after his wedding he celebrated by going to Glyndebourne with his friend and colleague Emlyn Hooson and his wife. Opera – including Glyndebourne – was a magnet for Ronnie and he turned up to operas with a range of impressive friends. One visit to Glyndebourne in 1978 was with his friend Malcolm Anson, who was at the time the High Sheriff of Avon. Anson was Director – and later the Chairman of – Imperial Tobacco.

The Waterhouse family knew Sir Henry Walford Davies, the English composer, organist, conductor and educator who held the title Master of the King’s Music, 1934-41. Walford Davies held Chairs at University College Aberystwyth and the University of London and was musical advisor to the BBC.

Ronnie knew the Welsh tenor David Lloyd who, like Ronnie, came from Flintshire. In 1954 Lloyd had a serious accident whilst working on a programme for the BBC and fractured his spine. David Lloyd subsequently sued the BBC. Ronnie represented Lloyd in 1958 as the junior barrister to William Mars-Jones. Mars-Jones expressed the opinion from the outset that the BBC would win but somehow not only did legal aid for the case continue, but Mars-Jones persisted with the case. The BBC made unsubstantiated allegations that David Lloyd was an alcoholic – the presiding judge was a well-known Liberal Nonconformist who disapproved of drinking – and David Lloyd not only lost the case, but had his reputation damaged as well. It was however just as well for Ronnie and Mars-Jones that their client lost, because in 1956 Ronnie had begun working for the BBC himself and things could have been difficult if David Lloyd had won that case. The case was held at Chester Assizes. Ronnie Waterhouse grew up in a leading Liberal Nonconformist family just down the road from Chester. His family will have known the judge before Ronnie had even begun working on the Chester and Wales Circuit. Mars-Jones was also from a Nonconformist family who were located not a million miles away from Chester and Mars-Jones was an older, more experienced barrister who will have known the judge well. I suspect that Ronnie also knew that his employers were going to accuse David Lloyd of being a piss artist. What I do not know is whether David Lloyd knew that Ronnie was working for the organisation that David was trying to sue. David had been very badly injured and was unable to work for several years. That could have cost the BBC a great deal of money and much bad PR.

David Lloyd-Jones, the musical director of English Opera North, was the son of Ronnie’s colleague Sir Vincent Lloyd-Jones QC. Vincent Lloyd-Jones was a barrister on the corrupt Chester and Wales Circuit, Recorder of Chester, 1952-58 and Recorder of Cardiff, 1958-60. He was appointed a High Court judge in 1960. Sir Vincent was the brother of Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones, the Welsh Congregationalist Minister and Top Doctor. Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones trained at Barts and after qualifying worked as an assistant to the Royal Physician Lord Thomas Horder, but it was as an Evangelist preacher that Martyn was known.

 

Ronnie’s own taste in Top Docs was quite particular – he didn’t use the lethal NHS in north Wales which was run by his friends. When Ronnie was clobbered with appendicitis in 1968 he was operated on at UCH by Sir Ralph Marnham. Marnham trained at St George’s Hospital and also worked there for some years. He was Surgeon to the Royal Household of King George VI, 1946 and Surgeon and Serjeant-Surgeon to HM Queen Elizabeth, 1967-1971. In 1964 he operated on the Queen Mum for appendicitis and in 1966 he again operated on her for an abdominal obstruction. So Sir Ralph had gained a bit of experience before Sir Ronnie risked going under his knife – Ronnie wasn’t going to risk being operated on by just anyone.

When Ronnie’s mother-in-law suffered from cancer, she was treated at the private Wellington Hospital in London between 1982-84. Of course Ronnie’s mates who ran the NHS in north Wales at that time maintained that the cancer care that they provided was outstanding, but for some reason Ronnie’s mum-in-law didn’t catch a train to Ysbyty Gwynedd to experience the global leaders in oncology employed by Gwynedd Health Authority.

 

Ronnie’s wife Sarah was musical as well, at one point she enrolled in the Guildhall School of Music.

 

Ronnie’s best mate from Cambridge Sir Robin Day (see post ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’) gave Ronnie access to reams of media folk, although Day always credited Ronnie with launching Day’s media career. It was Ronnie who saw an advert for ITN newscasters and encouraged Day to apply. Another Cambridge friend of Ronnie’s was Bob Sloman who worked for ‘The Sunday Times’ and wrote West End plays as well as material for ‘Dr Who’. Ronnie was also friends with Godfrey Smith, a correspondent for ‘The Sunday Times’. Sir Ronnie almost certainly knew ‘The Sunday Times’ journo Marjorie Wallace, a paedophiles’ friend of the highest order (see post ‘One Dangerous Fucker’). Ronnie knew Huw Thomas, a barrister who became an ITN newscaster and other friends of Ronnie’s included Keith Kyle of ‘The Economist’ and Douglas and Sarah Graham of the ‘Express & Star’ newspapers.

 

In 1956 Ronnie began script writing for the BBC. He was friends with Ian McIntyre, the controller of Radio 4, then Radio 3 and the associate Editor of ‘The Times’. Ronnie’s close friend and former flatmate Ivan Yates worked for the BBC’s North American service.

Ronnie got to know Tony Benn – or as he was then, Anthony Wedgwood Benn – through Ronnie’s TV work.

 

Ronnie’s media connections continued into the next generation – his nephew Michael Waterhouse is an independent TV producer, director and scriptwriter. Michael states in his online profile that he has produced regularly for BBC 2 and 4, ITV and Channel 4 and has overseen large-scale productions for Sky Atlantic and the History Channel (USA). Michael boasts of working with the presenters Tony Robinson, Nick Crane, Bettany Hughes, Richard Dawkins, Jim Al-Khalili, Michael Buerk, James Dyson, Stephen Hawking, Marcus du Sautoy and ‘numerous bishops’. Either Michael Waterhouse has a hotline to bishops or they are touting themselves around for TV work.

 

Between 1966-69 Ronnie worked as a libel reader for ‘Private Eye’ after his friend and neighbour Alistair Sampson told Ronnie that the ‘Eye’, which was at the time owned by Peter Cook, could do with his services after a costly damages settlement. Thus Ronnie got to know Richard Ingrams, Auberon Waugh, Paul Foot, Christopher Booker, John Morgan, Patrick Marnham, Willie Rushton and Barry Fantoni. Whilst the ‘Eye’ employed Ronnie they received many libel writs, including a number from Lord Hailsham. Auberon Waugh was delighted when in 1978 Ronnie became a High Court judge because Auberon felt that Lord Gnome would have a friend in the judiciary.

Although the ‘Eye’ did an excellent job of sending up some dreadful people, in that era the ‘Eye’ was constantly charged with being dominated by former minor public school boys with small c conservative sympathies. Although Peter Cook performed a wonderful parody of Justice Cantley’s ludicrous summing up at Jeremy Thorpe’s trial and Auberon took the piss by standing against Thorpe in the 1979 General Election as the Dog Lovers candidate in honour of Rinka, Norman Scott’s dog who had been shot by the alleged hit man (see post ‘My How Things Haven’t Changed’), Ronnie Waterhouse and many of his family and friends were mates with Jeremy Thorpe. They were fully aware of Norman’s allegations many years before the 1975 events on Porlock Hill (see post ‘My How Things Haven’t Changed’). Thorpe was defended at his trial by the crooked barrister George Carman QC (see posts ‘No Ordinary Methods’ and ‘No Ordinary Methods – Supplementary Post’), who was a friend of Ronnie’s.

The ‘Eye’ was one of the publications which in late 1972 refused to print a word about Norman’s allegations on the grounds that they were defamatory and unprovable.

In the 1970s Ronnie represented Paul Foot and Stephen Sedley represented the publisher of the ‘Socialist Worker’ when Sam Silkin the Attorney General tried to have them imprisoned for contempt. Foot had, in an article in ‘Socialist Worker’, named two prosecution witnesses, one of which was an hereditary peer, in the Janie Jones trial before Alan King-Hamilton QC at the Old Bailey. Jones ran a brothel in Kensington and she was alleged to have blackmailed the two prosecution witnesses who were clients of the brothel. She had been acquitted of the blackmail charges but had been tried earlier by King-Hamilton on charges related to prostitution and brothel keeping as well as attempting to pervert the course of justice.

King-Hamilton had shielded the ID of the witnesses but admitted that he didn’t have the power to prevent the press from naming them; he commented that he hoped that the press would not name them if they did discover who they were. The contempt case was heard by Lord Chief Justice Widgery, Justice Milmo and Justice Ackner. Stephen Sedley acted for the publisher of the ‘Socialist Worker’ and Ronnie for Paul Foot – Michael Lewis (Esyr’s brother) was Ronnie’s junior. The Treasury solicitor Gordon Slynn acted for the Attorney General. Although it was conceded that King-Hamilton had no jurisdiction over the press, Foot and the publisher were nonetheless fined £250 after the Court stated that Paul Foot had ‘acted recklessly’ and that naming the two witnesses was an ‘affront to the authority of the court and calculated to interfere with the course of justice because it would destroy the confidence of witnesses in future blackmail cases’. Not of course that Janie Jones had been found guilty of blackmailing the witnesses – she was imprisoned after being found guilty of controlling prostitutes.

Janie Jones will have had much dirt on many people. She had worked in cabaret in the 1950s in London, including at the Windmill Theatre where Trumpers’s father and his friends were regulars (see post ’95 Glorious Years!) and in clubs in Mayfair. Janie did of course run a brothel frequented by people who moved in the circles of the judge who jailed her…

 

Ronnie’s connections knew no limits – his wife Sarah’s father was a well-known racehorse breeder so Ronnie took maximum advantage of his father-in-law’s contacts too. Other business contacts of Ronnie’s included his friend Hamish Maxwell, the son of tobacco controller Sir Alexander Maxwell. Hamish was Chair and CEO of Philip Morris. Ken Clarke received freebies from Philip Morris and had dealings with the tobacco industry from 1982, when as Health Minister he thrashed out a voluntary agreement re tobacco advertising with the industry. Ken Clarke also concealed the wrongdoing of Dafydd and the paedophiles’ friends in his roles as Health Minister and Secretary of State for Health (see post ‘Running The Country – And All That Jazz’). Hamish Maxwell became Chairman of WPP, the multinational later led by Sir Martin Sorrell. Another mate of Ronnie’s was Louis Marshall who became European Legal Director of Colgate Palmolive. He also knew Dennis Lannigan, the Chairman of J. Walter Thompson in Europe. J. Walter Thompson was formerly an advertising agency and is now part of WWP.

David Kinnersley was friends with Ronnie. Kinnersely was the Chief Executive of North West Water Authority in the 1970s. He founded Water Aid in 1981, after attending a meeting in New York in his capacity as senior economic advisor to the National Water Council after the UN declared the 1980s to be the ‘international drinking water supply and sanitation decade’. Kinnersley advised Thatcher’s Cabinet Minister Nicholas Ridley on the 1989 privatisation programme.

Kinnersley was one of the first Chief Executives of a water authority and though initially uncertain about the Thatcher’s privatisation programme, he eventually vowed to make it a success. He was a great fan of water meters, using his background as an economist to object to the principle of water companies raising levies based on the rateable values of users’ properties.

After graduating in 1950, Kinnersley joined the National Coal Board as special assistant to Sir James Bowman. He later worked for the UK Atomic Energy Authority before joining the water industry in 1964 as Deputy General Manager of the British Waterways Board. Kinnersley was Director of the Association of River Authorities, 1970-73 and then Chief Executive of the North West Water Authority until 1976. He found himself in trouble at North West Water when it came to light that the Authority – then still nationalised – had invested in personalised number plates for some of its other Directors.

Kinnersley’s book ‘Troubled Waters: Rivers, Politics and Pollution’ (1988) laid into the ‘fantasy and rhetoric’ and ‘administrative fudging’ of the Environment Department during water privatisation. In ‘Coming Clean: the Politics of Water and the Environment’ (1994), Kinnersley pointed out the urgent need for the UK to invest in its crumbling sewerage infrastructure and the Govt’s desire to avoid political responsibility for the price increases that would be required to support the new investment, but adroitly pointed out that ‘There’s no votes in shit.’

There were however a great many votes in concealing a pan-European paedophile gang whose UK arm was run by the NHS and social services.

After retiring from the National Water Council in 1983, Kinnersley took up a research fellowship at Nuffield College, Oxford and was later Bursar and a fellow of Mansfield College.

 

One place that Ronnie Waterhouse used to visit was St Deiniol’s Library in Hawarden, Flintshire, now known as the Gladstone Library. St Deiniol’s Library is a residential library, with a strong emphasis on theology. It is a favourite haunt of theologians and priests and the comedian Timmy Mallett’s father was a clergyman from near Chester who trained at St Deiniol’s (see post ‘The Banality Of Evil’). A former Bishop of Chester was abusing children.

 

Ronnie sat on the council of the London Zoological Society, 1972-93. The Zoological Society of London (ZSL) is a charity that was founded in 1826 devoted to ‘the worldwide conservation of animals and their habitats’.

The Institute of Zoology is the scientific research division of the ZSL. It is a Gov’t funded research institute, which ‘specialises in scientific issues relevant to the conservation of species and their habitats’. From the late 1980s the Institute of Zoology was affiliated to the University of London. In 2000 this was replaced with a partnership with the University of Cambridge.

When Ronnie first joined the ZSL, Phil the Greek was President and other council members included the Duke of Northumberland, Thatcher’s friend Woodrow Wyatt and Peter Scott. In 1977 Lord Solly Zuckerman – described by Ronnie as a ‘charming polymath’ – succeeded Phil the Greek as President.

Zuckerman was born and brought up in South Africa, studied medicine at the University of Cape Town and later attended Yale University. He went to London in 1926 to complete his studies at UCH Medical School. Zuckerman began his career at the ZSL in 1928, and worked as a research anatomist until 1932. He taught at the Oxford University, 1934–45.

During WWII, Zuckerman worked on several research projects for the British Gov’t, including measuring the effect of bombing on people and buildings and an assessment of the bombardment (Operation Corkscrew) of the Italian island of Pantelleria in 1943. When Zuckerman was Scientific Director of the British Bombing Survey Unit, he suggested that in the lead up to the Normandy landings the Allies should concentrate on disrupting the German-controlled French transportation system through heavy aerial bombing of rail lines and marshalling yards. His plan was privately referred to by its opponents as ‘Zuckerman’s Folly.’ However Zuckerman’s Folly was accepted by Supreme Allied Commander US General Dwight D. Eisenhower. A focus of Zuckerman’s plan was to target locomotives and the capacity to service them due to a shortage in France prior to the Normandy campaign. This had the effect of pushing rail heads back from the front causing trucks to be diverted from a role of manoeuvre to one of logistics, which resulted in greater petrol consumption.

After leaving the Royal Air Force in 1946, Zuckerman was appointed Professor of Anatomy at Birmingham University where he remained until 1968. He was Chief Scientific Advisor to the MoD, 1960-66 and Chief Scientific Advisor to the British Gov’t, 1964-71. Zuckerman taught at the University of East Anglia, 1969-74 and was instrumental in the development of the Environmental Sciences Dept there. He served as Secretary of the ZSL, 1955-77, before he was appointed President.

After Zuckerman retired as President of the ZSL in 1984, Waterhouse explained that severe financial difficulties followed. In May 1988 the Gov’t made an endowment payment of £10 million, with an annual payment of £1.3 million for the core funding of the Institute of Zoology.

Zuckerman married Lady Joan Rufus Isaacs, the daughter of Gerald Rufus Isaacs, the 2nd Marquess of Reading, in 1939. Gerald Isaacs was a barrister and a Minister in Winston Churchill’s and Anthony Eden’s Gov’ts. He was a bencher in Ronnie Waterhouse’s Inn of Court, Middle Temple. Ronnie will have made it his business to know him.

Sir William MacGregor Henderson, a veterinarian, succeeded Zuckerman as President of the ZSL.

In 1989 (Nicholas) Avrion Mitchison took over as President and remained in post until 1992. Avrion Mitchison’s uncle was the biologist J.B.S. Haldane and his grandfather was the physiologist John Scott Haldane. His son is the cell biologist Professor Tim Mitchison, who has a Chair at Harvard Medical School.

Avrion Mitchison was Professor of Zoology at UCL, worked at the National Institute of Medical Research at Mill Hill and was founding Director of a Rheumatology Institute in Germany. He is currently a Professor Emeritus at UCL.

Whilst I was working at St George’s Hospital Medical School, the Zoological Society of London was the subject of much bad publicity when a story was leaked to the media claiming that some rather pointless research was taking place which involved decapitating marmosets. The Zoological Society was unable to justify the research, but a statement was released stressing that they had seen the error of their ways and that the research had now stopped and they would not be going there again.

The Zoological Society of London was telling porkies. How did I know? Because Mandy Leigh, one of the most unpleasant members of staff at St George’s, was involved in that research and she sat in the tea room chortling away smugly as she confirmed to the rest of us that of course the chopping off of marmosets heads had not come to an end, that was just a load of guff that the London Zoo had told the press. Within a few days, Mandy had popped off down to the ZSL again to decapitate a few more marmosets.

The business of the marmosets losing their heads and lies being told to placate the plebs happened whilst Avrion Mitchison was President of the Zoological Society of London.

Avrion Mitchison stepped down as President in March 1992 – unless that was a lie that had been given to the media as well – and Field Marshal Sir John Chapple took over as President when he retired as the Chief of General Staff to the British Army. Chapple advised the British Gov’t during the Gulf War.

Field Marshal Chapple’s son is David Chapple, a consultant orthopaedic and spinal surgeon. David Chapple read medicine at Tommy’s and undertook his surgical training at St George’s Hospital Medical School. He works at Salisbury District Hospital and at the private New Hall Hospital in Salisbury.

In 2011 David Chapple and his wife Olivia, a GP, had a dreadful experience when their 17 year old son Horatio, a pupil at Eton, was killed by a starving polar bear whilst on a trip to Norway with the British Schools Exploring Society (BSES). Field Marshal Sir John Chapple is a former President of the BSES. The bear that killed Horatio was shot dead by the expedition leader, who suffered serious head and facial injuries. Police later disclosed that the organisers of the expedition had a gun but it failed to fire four times because it was in the ‘safe’ position. They had not assigned a nightwatchman for the camp.

In Sept 2011 it was announced that a High Court judge, Sir David Steel, would preside over an Inquiry into Horatio’s death.

In March 2012 after an enquiry by Norwegian investigators, it was concluded that Horatio’s death could have been avoided if the expedition members had stayed in cabins rather than tents, had used guard dogs and had appointed someone on polar bear watch. Because none of these precautions were required by law, the expedition leaders did not face prosecution.

In 2014, an inquest on Horatio by coroner Ian Singleton returned a narrative verdict. Singleton ruled that failures by the expedition’s organisers did not lead to Horatio’s death, although the group was missing several pieces of crucial equipment, including parts of the trip wire alert system. Singleton stated that a neglect verdict was not appropriate because the expedition leaders failures had not been ‘total or complete’.

Returning his verdict, Mr Singleton said Horatio had been in a tent on a snow bridge near the Von Post Glacier on 5 August when the attack happened. Singleton stated that ‘A polar bear was able to enter the camp shortly before 7.30 am undetected as the trip wire alarm system around the perimeter of the camp had failed to activate due to a supporting post more likely than not being knocked over by the bear which caused the cartridge to move or fall out of the mine without it detonating. Horatio emerged from his tent and was in the act of standing up when the bear reared up and slammed down on him with its paws pushing Horatio to the ground where the bear then mauled his head, face and neck, causing the injury which lead to Horatio’s death.’

Well the expedition leaders didn’t actually feed Horatio to the bear…

In 2014 Sir David Steel reported on the substantial failures in the organisation of the expedition, one of which was to use paperclips to repair the broken trip wire alert system. Sir David stated that the invasion of the camp by a polar bear was ‘not unforeseeable’.

So a 17 year old Eton pupil was killed on an elite adventure holiday as a result of some very, very basic failures by a society which prides itself on preparing youngsters as future explorers and no-one was prosecuted. What has been the long term outcome? A medical charity of course. Horatio’s Top Doc parents established ‘Horatio’s Garden’, which provides ‘green spaces’ (ie. gardens) in hospital grounds for spinal surgery patients to sit in or at least look at. The biggest n best ‘Horatio’s Garden’ fundraising appeal was held at Jimmy Savile’s alma mater Stoke Mandeville.

 

Horatio’s grandfather seems to have caused as many problems during his tenure as President of ZSL as his predecessors Solly and Avrion did. Ronnie Waterhouse’s book tells us that in Sept 1992 a vote of no confidence in the council of the ZSL was held in Sir John Chapple’s absence. Ronnie very wisely retired from the council of the ZSL after this. Sir John stood down as President in 1994, but he had another really good train set to play with because in 1993 he had been appointed as Governor of Gibralter.

The merry-go-round continued after Sir John vacated the ZSL Presidency in 1994. Sir Martin Holdgate was then President until 2004. Martin Holdgate was Chief Biologist to the British Antarctic Survey, then Research Director of the Nature Conservancy Council and, for eighteen years, Chief Scientist and Head of Research at the Dept of the Environment. Subsequently, Holdgate was Director General of the International Union for Conservation of Nature. 

Professor Sir Patrick Bateson was President of ZSL, 2004-14. Sir Patrick Bateson held the Chair of Ethology at Cambridge and his interest was in the ethics of the use of animals for research and the analysis of pain and suffering in animals. The Zoological Society of London with its headless marmosets was the right place for him then.

Professor Sir John Beddignton has been President of ZSL since 2014. Beddington is Senior Adviser at the Oxford Martin School and was previously Professor of Applied Population Biology at Imperial College. Gordon Brown appointed him as the UK Gov’t Chief Scientific Advisor in 2008. He remained in post until 2013.

 

Beddington was married to Professor Sally Baldwin, who was killed in a particularly horrible accident on an escalator in Italy in 2003. From 1994 Sally Baldwin was the Head of the University of York’s Social Policy and Social Work Dept. Sally’s research was into the application of evidence based research to social policy. Her other interests were in mental health and before her death she had been working with the NHS research and development programme on service delivery. Sally served as a member of the York Community Health Council and was a non-executive Director of the York NHS Trust. No, Sally never mentioned what Jimmy Savile was getting up to in her region and her promotion of ‘evidence based policy’ and ‘mental health advocacy’ did not touch the abuses of psychiatric patients by the mental health services, which continued apace. Neither did Sally say a word about Drs Michael Haslam and William Kerr, the two psychiatrists who raped and sexually abused female psychiatric patients in Yorkshire for decades until they were finally exposed in the late 1990s (see post ‘All The Ingredients Of A Scandal’).

If Sally Baldwin had been among all the expertise in north Wales, she wouldn’t have said a word about Dafydd and the paedophiles. Dafydd used to hold ‘clinics’ in Yorkshire.

 

Ronnie was a member of the council at ZSL whilst the unfortunate marmosets were being decapitated by Mandy Leigh et al and lies were told to the media. However Ronnie knew that there were some people who were not to be messed with. Robin Day’s son Alexander was seriously injured on a trip to London Zoo – he sustained multiple skull fractures – whilst Ronnie was a council member. London Zoo coughed up substantial damages without quibbling. Ronnie mentioned in his book that Robin Day was a litigious man who was quick to sue newspapers.

 

 

Ronnie Waterhouse was involved in the 1970s battle between the Church of Scientology, MIND (then known as the National Association for Mental Health) and the psychiatric establishment. Ronnie defended Geoffrey Johnson-Smith, the Tory MP for East Grinstead – who was a friend of Sir Robin Day – against Church of Scientology. The Church tried to sue Johnson-Smith over claims he made on the BBC that families were being alienated by the Church. Although the Church produced witnesses who spoke highly of it, the jury decided that Johnson-Smith’s comments were substantially true and made in good faith.

Ronnie recommended that Sir Elwyn Jones lead for the defence. Sir Elwyn Jones – who later became Lord Elwyn-Jones – ranked high in the pecking order among the paedophiles’ friends of north Wales. He grew up in west Wales, passed through University College Aberystwyth and Cambridge and became a barrister on the Chester and Wales Circuit and a Recorder of Merthyr Tydfil. He served as the Labour MP for Plaistow, West Ham South and Newham. Elwyn Jones was Attorney General under Harold Wilson, 1964-70 and then Lord Chancellor, 1974-79, under Wilson and then Callaghan. It was on his watch as Lord Chancellor that Ronnie was appointed a High Court judge. Elwyn Jones was Shadow Lord Chancellor, 1983-89, under the Windbag.

Elwyn Jones was Lord Chancellor when Mary Wynch was unlawfully arrested and imprisoned by Dr Dafydd Alun Jones et al, as well as during the preceding years when she had come under attack from a ring of crooked solicitors who fleeced her of her inheritance.

Sir Peter Rawlinson was Attorney General at the time of the Geoffrey Johnson-Smith case – Rawlinson was AG throughout the years of Heath’s Gov’t. He had been Solicitor-General under Macmillan at the time of the John Vassall spy scandal (see post ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’), so Rawlinson knew that there was naughtiness in high places accompanied by much hypocrisy.

Geoffrey Johnson-Smith’s appearance on the BBC which sparked the legal case with the Scientologists was the result of a question he’d put to Kenneth Robinson, the Labour Health Minister (a position which evolved into the Secretary of State for the Social Services) in 1968. Robinson did not like the Scientologists. He served as Chairman of National Association for Mental Health  (MIND) and in 1969 the Church of Scientology infiltrated the NAMH. Their members were expelled by NAMH and the Scientologists sued in an attempt to have their members reinstated but lost the case (see post ‘MIND Are Out For Mental Health – Never For Themselves Of Course’). The problem that Robinson, the NAMH and the psychiatric establishment all had with the Scientologists was that the Scientologists alleged that psychiatrists were abusing patients, carrying out damaging experiments on them and facilitating sex crime.

It is a great pity that the Church of Scientology is built on such shaky foundations itself, because much of what they have said about psychiatry for years I have found to be true.

The first person whom I met who really hated the Scientologists was Dr DGE Wood, who was helping run Dafydd’s sex trafficking business. Did Wood just think that L. Ron Hubbard’s writings were a bit outlandish? No. Wood told me that the Scientologists needed a shotgun against their heads. Which was an interesting desire, in the light of the claim by one boy at Bryn Alyn that he was sexually assaulted at gunpoint.

Ronnie’s book mentions that in the Geoffrey Johnson-Smith case, the Scientologists were represented by a junior barrister, Ronald Schulman, who later ‘disappeared in mysterious circumstances’. Ronnie’s story was that Schulman ‘behaved oddly’ in relation to the will of a man who died in a private plan crash en route to France. Ronnie maintained that Schulman was last seen by Ronnie’s barrister friend James Crespi, ‘breakfasting at the Great Eastern Hotel’. Ronnie tells us that it was speculated that Schulman ended up in Brazil. After tangling with Ronnie and the gang it was rather more likely that Schulman ended up in the concrete in a flyover.

James Crespi QC was a friend of George Carman’s and they used to go out boozing and clubbing together. Crespi married a ‘young nightclub hostess’ who left him after three weeks of marriage.

A number of children and psychiatric patients in north Wales disappeared, as did children from other areas where organised child abuse gangs were operating, such as Islington. In Islington a social worker disappeared as well, after expressing concerns about what was happening in the Council’s children’s homes.

 

Sam Silkin, a member of a family who were Labour Party Royalty (see post ‘They Planned To Put Acid In All The Reservoirs…’), was Attorney General when the paedophiles’ friends opened fire on Mary Wynch. When Sir Michael Havers succeeded Silkin, the paedophiles’ friends continued firing. In 1977, Ronnie was asked by Attorney General Silkin if he’d be interested in being a candidate for the job of DPP to lead the proposed new CPS. Ronnie said yes and subsequently met Silkin in a meeting which was held ‘in great secrecy’. Ronnie was unsuccessful and Silkin gave the job to Thomas ‘Tony’ Hetherington (see post ‘A Future Leader Of The Labour Party’) instead, whom of course Ronnie knew. Hetherington was DPP, 1977-87. So he was DPP when both Mary Wynch and I were arrested on trumped up charges by Dafydd and the paedophiles’ friends.

Hetherington was head of the permanent legal staff of the Law Officers from 1966-76 and became Deputy Treasury Solicitor in 1975. The Treasury Solicitor was one of those involved with unlawfully fleecing Mary Wynch of her property.

Hetherington’s father was a Top Doctor and Hetherington served in the British Army, both in the regular Army and the TA. Hetherington lied about his office never having received police reports about Cyril Smith’s sex offending.

 

 

Ronnie knew Lord John Donaldson and his wife Mary and in 1984 Ronnie attended Lady Donaldson’s summer banquet. It was Lord Donaldson who as Master of the Rolls gave the 1985 judgement which made legal history and resulted in Mary successfully suing Dafydd et al (see post ‘The Mary Wynch Case – Details’). Ronnie will have definitely noticed and by the time that he was attending Lady Donaldson’s summer banquest he will have known that Mary had begun a case against Dafydd et al.

 

Ronnie had a number of other links with people involved in my own case, as well as his connection with Sir Thomas Hetherington. I mentioned in my post ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’ that Ronnie was a colleague of Lord Justice John Roch who witnessed four paedophiles’ friends perjure themselves in a rigged case in Chester in an attempt to have me imprisoned. Ronnie knew Crispin Masterman when Masterman was a junior and Ronnie praised him in the highest terms. Crispin Masterman represented Gwynedd Health Authority in the High Court in Cardiff in front of Sir Malcolm Pill when Gwynedd Health Authority tried to obtain an injunction against me in 1990 to stop me from even writing to them to follow up my complaints (see post ‘Some Big Legal Names Enter The Arena’). Crispin Masterman had read all my correspondence to Gwynedd Health Authority which detailed serious crime on the part of NHS and social services staff – he did not say a word about any of it.

Crispin Masterman became a judge. His Honour Crispin Masterman retired about five years ago.

Ronnie was also good friends with his neighbour in St John’s Wood, Sir Hugh Park, the former Presiding judge of the Western Circuit. Ronnie conducted his first case as a judge with Park in Bristol with Sir Hugh Park. Sir Hugh presided over the 1978 trial that resulted from the farce that was Operation Julie (see post ‘They Planned To Put Acid In All The Reservoirs…’). Sir Hugh Park was a former member of the Special Operations Executive.

I am wondering if Sir Hugh Park was anything to do with Andrew Park, the crooked lawyer who worked for the Welsh Office, who not only concealed the criminality of Dafydd et al but was happy to encourage them to commit perjury. Lawyers and judges often come from families with other lawyers and judges in them.

 

Ronnie was a lifelong friend of Philip, the son of Justice Owen Stable QC. In 1994 Owen Stable made headlines when he called for the reintroduction of flogging when sentencing three teenagers for joyriding.

 

Ronnie knew David Seaborne Davies, who briefly served as the Liberal MP for Caernarvon Boroughs following David Lloyd George. Seaborne Davies was born in Pwllheli, attended the local grammar school, went to University College Aberystwyth and then St John’s College Oxford. After he served as an MP, Davies took up the post of Chair in the Law Faculty at the University of Liverpool and was also PVC, 1956-60. Davies was a member of the Home Office Criminal Law Revision Commission.

After retirement in 1971, Davies moved to Caernarfon where he indulged his interest in Rugby Union (he had been Life President of Liverpool University Rugby Football Club and Vice President of London Welsh RFC) and was President of Pwllheli Sports Club for ten years. He served as a Magistrate in both Liverpool and Caernarfon, and was High Sheriff of Caernarvonshire, 1967-68. Davies was President of the National Eisteddfod in 1955, 1973 and 1975.

David Seabourne Davies helped Ronnie obtain his place on the law degree at St John’s College, Cambridge.

A true paedophiles’ friend.

 

 

Ronnie’s autobiography doesn’t mention any direct contact with Thatcher but I would be surprised if he had not encountered her at some point. He certainly would have done her bidding and would never have mentioned that her friend and aide Sir Peter Morrison was abusing children in care in north Wales and elsewhere. A number of good friends of Ronnie were closely associated with Thatcher.

I mentioned in previous posts that Ronnie was a close friend of Geoffrey and Elspeth Howe and enjoyed their hospitality at No 11 Downing Street, Chevening and Dorneywood. Ronnie was a good friend of Lord Patrick Jenkin, who was Thatcher’s Secretary of State for Social Services, 1979-81. At the time, one of the biggest rows caused by Jenkin followed his comments in a discussion regarding gender equality – I think in terms of pay. Jenkin stated that if the Lord God had wanted equal pay he wouldn’t have created man and woman. I remember at the time that I was seriously worried that such a man was a Cabinet Minister. I didn’t realise that Jenkin was concealing the sexual abuse of children and associated serious crime in north Wales – including that being committed by the then MP for Chester and Lord Commissioner of HM Treasury, Sir Peter Morrison.

No doubt Jenkin believed that if the Lord God had not wanted children in care to be molested by paedophiles in high places, he wouldn’t have created Dafydd and Lucille – or indeed Sir Ronnie Waterhouse to cover it all up.

Patrick Jenkin’s son Bernard is a Tory MP and from 1992-95 was an advisor to Legal and General Group – whilst investigations were held into the abuse that his father concealed. Bernard Jenkin is a naturist and an associate of Richard Curtis – it is alleged that the many references to ‘Bernard’ in Curtis’s work is a private joke between them. Richard Curtis is married to Clement Freud’s daughter Emma, so perhaps he could write a few supplementary episodes of ‘Blackadder’ featuring a sex offender called Clement.

 

Ronnie was also a friend of Norman St John Stevas, whom I was told when I worked at St George’s was known to be ‘holding spanking parties with little boys’. Sir Ronnie also knew Lord Peter Thorneycroft, a barrister and Tory politician who was Chancellor of the Exchequer in Harold Macmillan’s Gov’t. Thorneycroft had a long career in politics and was Chair of the Conservative Party, 1975-81, by which time Sir Peter Morrison had been elected as an MP and was as busy as St John Stevas was with underaged boys. Ronnie knew Douglas Hurd who held a number of roles in Thatcher’s Cabinet and was Home Secretary, 1985-89, when officials in the Home Office were forging documents and conspiring to have those targeted by Dafydd and the paedophiles imprisoned, including me (see post ‘Additional Security Measures’). Hurd was a nephew of the botanist Edred Henry Corner, who was known to Prof Grieg-Smith at UCNW who was a colleague of Dr Chris Wood, the wife of the corrupt GP Dr DGE Wood who worked in the Student Health Centre at UCNW and was facilitating the sex trafficking ring in north Wales (see post ‘Just A Language Divide?’).

Whilst Hurd was Home Secretary, Peter Morrison was a Minister in the DTI, then Deputy Chairman of the Tory Party and then Minister for Energy (see post ‘These Sharks Are Crap As Well’).

 

One of Waterhouse’s closest friends, the diplomat Sir Percy Cradock, was a political adviser to Thatcher. Cradock joined the Foreign Office in 1954, served mainly in Asia and was the British Ambassador to the People’s Republic of China, 1978-83. Between 1982-84, Cradock played the key role in the negotiations in deciding the future of the sovereignty of Hong Kong after 1997. Cradock was accused by many of betraying the people of Hong Kong, but Thatcher’s faith in him remained and in 1985 she appointed him as Chairman of the Joint Intelligence Committee. Cradock’s relationship with John Major was much worse than his relationship with Thatcher and in 1992 Major replaced both Cradock and the then Governor of Hong Kong, Sir David Wilson, with his ally Chris Patten as Governor of Hong Kong.

Not that it made any difference to those on the receiving end of Dafydd and the paedophiles – Patten had been concealing their crimes himself for years and after paedophiles’ friend Professor Mark Williams established the Oxford Mindfulness Centre on the basis of the research fraud that he carried out with the paedophiles’ friends of north Wales (see post ‘The Biggest Expert Of The Lot’), Patten’s wife Lavender became a Patron of Williams’s Oxford Mindfulness Centre.

Cradock and Patten had a number of public spats during the final years of British administration in Hong Kong, both blaming each other for the problems in the hand-over agreement.

Cradock was a member of the Reform Club, as was Jeremy Thorpe. Thorpe used the Reform Club as the basis of his election campaign which took place after he had been charged with conspiring to murder Norman Scott. Ronnie Waterhouse was a member of the Garrick, but a lot of his friends were in the Reform and Ronnie attended their knees-ups and dinners there.

Another link between Ronnie and Thatch was Ronnie’s pupil master, John Brightman, who later became a Lord of Appeal. By the time that Ronnie was a pupil of Brightman’s, Thatcher had only recently been Brightman’s pupil. Brightman had served in the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve…

Brightman bagged a peerage from his former pupil in 1982.

 

Percy Cradock was not the only friend of Ronnie’s in the diplomatic service. Grania Bacon, the bridesmaid at Ronnie’s wedding, married the diplomat Sir Alan Munro. Better than that was another friend as close as Cradock, Kenneth James. James was head of the Western European Dept of the Foreign Office – people whom Ronnie knew through Kenneth James included Crispin and Chloe Tickell, Leo de Rothschild, Julian and Margaret Bullard, Dick Stratton and Alistair Horne. In 1953, Ronnie held an ‘at home’ with Geoffrey Howe, Norman St John Stevas, Philip Goodhart (who was later Minister for N Ireland, 1979-81), opera and theatre director Anthony Besch, the ‘Mail’ and ‘Express’ journo Eve Perrick and ‘a sprinkling of diplomats whom I had met with and through Kenneth James’.

Ronnie’s pal Jack Ashley, the Labour MP for Stoke-on-Trent South, 1966-92, also attended the party. Jack Ashley studied at Ruskin College and Cambridge, then worked as a radio producer for the North American Service, the BBC Home Service and as a TV producer for ‘Monitor’ and ‘Panorama’. Jack Ashley gained much admiration for his disability campaigning when that was not a fashionable cause. Sadly Jack kept quiet about the paedophile gang in Staffordshire as well as the lethal hospitals there.

Jack Ashley’s daughter is Jackie Ashley, the TV reporter and journalist. Jackie is married to Andrew Marr, the journalist, newspaper editor and TV reporter/political commentator.

 

Other friends of Ronnie’s included Poppy Stanley, the Bursar of Girton College, who married barrister and Cambridge legal academic Professor Tony Jolowicz. Poppy Jolowicz is listed at Companies House as having been a Director of the Arthur Rank Hospice Ltd.

Ronnie’s Cambridge Liberal friend Hugh Corrie led the Mirror Group’s legal team from the mid-1970s. Corrie’s colleagues all remember him as being the best lawyer that the Mirror Group could have had. So Corrie will have known that something irregular was happening with the pension fund.

Ronnie knew Professor Brian Abel-Smith, the economist  and Gov’t advisor who carefully failed to notice the abuse of vulnerable people by the NHS and welfare services (see post ‘The Old Devils’) and Bob Boothby. Lord Bob Boothby was a Conservative politician who was bisexual and frequently close to scandal. Boothby was friendly with a number of serious criminals including the Krays and was alleged to have used rent boys.

 

Another pal of Waterhouse’s was the theatre critic and writer Kenneth Tynan. Kenneth Tynan was feted as a society figure and champagne socialist who was a bit outrageous, but when he was older it became clear that he was excessive, or even unsavoury. Tynan was notoriously promiscuous yet demanded fidelity from his wife and he was an enthusiastic sado-masochist but in a way that wasn’t at all enjoyable for those he was practising it with. Tynan’s daughter Tracy wrote her memoirs recently in which she maintained that her father was a boozing, coke -snorting, violent, sexually exploitative man.

 

Ronnie also knew Sir Hugh Casson, the architect and his wife Margaret. Casson went to St John’s College, Cambridge like Ronnie and was the nephew of the actor Lewis Casson, whose daughter Ronnie also knew. Sir Hugh’s architecture is much mocked and he was responsible for treasures such as the Royal Festival Hall and the Elephant House at London Zoo. Casson was a close friend of the Royal Family and taught Prince Charles how to paint in watercolour.

In 1985 Margaret Casson was made an honorary fellow of the Royal Academy, where her husband was President. Purely on the basis of her talents of course.

 

Two other colleagues of Ronnie’s on the Chester and Wales Circuit whom I did not mention in previous posts were Geraint Rees and of course Tasker Watkins.

Geraint Rees was the brother of Goronwy Rees, paedophiles’ friend and Principal of University College Aberystwyth, whilst that college was run by paedophiles’ friends and churned out many law graduates who evolved into bent lawyers and judges (see post ‘A Bit More Paleontology’). Geraint made it big and became a judge at the Old Bailey.

I blogged about paedophiles’ friend par excellence Tasker Watkins aka The Greatest Living Welshman in my posts ‘Corruption Bay Special’ and ‘The Battle Of The Cowshed’. Tasker was Presiding judge of the Chester and Wales Circuit, 1975-80 and was appointed Deputy Lord Chief Justice by Lord Chief Justice Geoffrey Lane in 1988. Tasker had numerous other roles, including that of the Chairman of the Mental Health Review Tribunal Wales Region, 1960-71 and President of the Welsh National School of Medicine, 1987-99, whilst senior figures in that institution concealed the serious crime of the Top Docs in north Wales.

Ronnie was Tasker’s junior for the prosecution at the 1969 trial of the Free Wales Army who intended to blow Prince Charles sky high during the Investiture.

 

Ronnie knew that the Bar and judiciary was crawling with so much nepotism that it could not be denied. So he didn’t try to. In ‘Child Of Another Century’, when discussing the friendship between him and Sir Derek Oulton, the Permanent Secretary to the Lord Chancellor, 1982-89, Ronnie cheerily tells the reader that he ‘makes no apology’ for the nepotism and exclusivity’ involved in appointments. Which is just as well because Ronnie was someone who built his entire career on nepotism and exclusivity.

 

Sir Derek Oulton was educated at St Edward’s School, Oxford and then read law at King’s College, Cambridge. He was a barrister and a Bencher at Gray’s Inn. Oulton joined the Lord Chancellor’s Department in 1960 and was Private Secretary to three successive Lord Chancellors – Earl Kilmuir, Viscount Dilhorne and Lord Gardiner. He also served as Secretary to the Beeching Royal Commission on Assizes and Quarter Sessions, 1966–69.

Oulton’s civil service position as Permanent Secretary of the Lord Chancellor’s Department and Clerk of the Crown in Chancery, 1982–89, under Thatcher was his final one.

Oulton was in post when Mary Wynch and I were targeted by Dafydd and the paedophiles.

 

Sir Derek was succeeded by Sir Thomas Legg, no doubt as a result of further nepotism and exclusivity. Legg was Permanent Secretary of the Lord Chancellor’s Dept and Clerk to the Crown in Chancery, 1989-98, serving under Thatch, Major and Blair. So Legg’s time in office spanned a number of attempts to imprison me on the basis of the perjury of the paedophiles’ friends, the ruination of Mary Wynch by Michael Howard as Home Secretary after she had dared win her case against Dafydd et al, the failed investigations into the paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire – which of course didn’t exist – and the establishment of the Waterhouse Inquiry and Ronnie’s time of taking evidence from witnesses.

Legg was educated at Horace Mann School in New York City and at Frensham Heights School in the UK. After National Service in the Royal Marines, Legg read history and law at Ronnie’s alma mater, St John’s College, Cambridge. 

Legg was called to the Bar in 1960 and was one of the 12 lawyers allocated to the Lord Chancellor’s Department from 1962. He worked in that Dept for his entire career, which when he retired was responsible for administration of the UK legal system and its co-ordination with European Union law. This had resulted in the Dept of Constitutional Affairs employing 20,00 staff and having a budget of £2 billion. Somewhere among all that was Jack Straw, who as a young advisor to Barbara Castle had concealed the deaths of a great number of disabled children from London and as Margaret Hodge’s gofer in Islington Council had kept very quiet about the paedophile ring at work within the Council’s children’s homes.

Legg was a Master of the Bench of the Inner Temple from 1984.

 

In April 1980 Ronnie received a phone call from Lord Geoffrey Lane who was about to be sworn in as Lord Chief Justice. Lane invited Ronnie to succeed Tasker as Presiding judge of Chester and Wales Circuit. Ronnie occupied that role for the next five years. Geoffrey Lane was felt to be a major liability during his time as Lord Chief Justice. His time in office was marked by a string of disputed convictions and he refused to allow the appeal of the Birmingham Six in 1988. When they were cleared in 1991, 140 MPs signed a petition demanding that Lane should leave his post.

After he retired, Legg headed the Inquiry into Sandline International, the ‘arms to Sierra Leone’ Inquiry. Legg’s Inquiry cleared the British Gov’t of any involvement in Sandline’s breach of the international arms embargo.

Since retirement, Legg has held the Chairmanship of the  Imperial College Healthcare Trust; served as Chairman of the London Library; and served as consultant to the law firm Clifford Chance. After being co-opted onto the council of Brunel University in 1993, he was Visitor from 2001–06. So Sir Thomas Legg might know something about the extraordinary support that one Peter Beresford received from Brunel and indeed from Blair and Brown’s Gov’ts after his metamorphosis from a social worker into a Service Users Champ. Beresford has been very effective at dominating the mental health debate, closing down conversations and silencing concerns regarding the most serious abuses of mental health patients within the mental health system. Whilst Beresford banged on about empowerment, patients died.

 

 

It was Geoffrey Lane who as Lord Chief Justice in 1987 – on Sir Derek’s Oulton’s watch – released Professor Oliver Brooke on appeal, after Brooke was imprisoned for the possession of child porn. Lane likened Brooke’s massive collection of child porn to a collection of cigarette cards. Oliver Brooke was the Prof of Paediatrics at St George’s Hospital Medical School who had a vast amount of child porn stored in his office at St George’s and who was also charged with inciting a photographer to take indecent pictures of a girl of 14. After Lane released him, detectives revealed that Brooke had been a key figure in a pan-European child sex ring.

At the time of Brooke’s conviction St George’s stressed that he had never behaved in an untoward manner with any of his patients. Not only was that statement probably about as truthful as the claims of the London Zoo to have stopped chopping off marmosets heads, but St George’s forgot to mention that many of Brooke’s colleagues remained in post concealing the rest of the paedophile ring of which he was a member (see post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part III’), as well as the staff who were involved with drugs offences (see post ‘A Galaxy Of Talent’) and furthermore that the staff had links with Dafydd et al in north Wales, knew what Dafydd, Tony Francis (Dr X) and Lucille Hughes were doing and colluded with them (see post ‘Some Very Eminent Psychiatrists From London’).

Oliver Brooke was jailed in Dec 1986. His appeal came before Geoffrey Lane in May 1987 and Brooke was released from prison in June 1987. Dafydd had me unlawfully arrested a matter of days before Brooke pleaded guilty to child porn offences in Kingston Crown Court. The month after Brooke was released from prison, Dafydd et al made a highly co-ordinated attempt to frame and imprison me – with which Risley Remand Centre and the Mental Health Act Commission colluded (see posts ‘Workers Play Time’, ‘Security, Security’ and ‘Additional Security Measures’).

Alison Taylor was suspended from her job with Gwynedd County Council in Dec 1986. Clwyd Health Authority made an admission of negligence with regard to Mary Wynch’s case not long after this, but then refused to pay her the damages which they themselves had offered…

 

It is clear that key figures involved with the abuse of children and young people across the UK could have been stopped in 1986/87, but their criminality was being actively facilitated at the highest levels. The people occupying key roles at the most senior levels of Gov’t and the legal system ensured that corrupt people were then appointed to other key roles.

Geoffrey Lane obviously felt that Ronnie Waterhouse was a man who could be relied upon not to rock the boat. The paedophiles’ friends must have cracked open the champagne when Ronnie was appointed the Presiding judge of the Chester and Wales Circuit. Ronnie’s years as Presiding judge covered the era when cases against child abusers in north Wales were inexplicably not taken forward, were dropped or when they were brought to court resulted in unfathomably lenient sentences.

 

Sir Michael Havers was Attorney General, 1979-87 and then Lord Chancellor, June 1987-Oct 1987. Havers blocked the prosecution of the diplomat Sir Peter Hayman for child porn offences and shielded his identity. It was on Havers’ watch that sex offence  cases involving other people such as Cyril Smith were batted into the long grass. Havers was succeeded as AG by Sir Patrick Mayhew – who was yet another paedophiles’ friend – and as Lord Chancellor by Lord Mackay of Clashfern, who I will return to later in this post…

Havers was the Tory MP for Wimbledon, 1970-87. Many of the consultants at St George’s lived in Havers’s constituency. Havers died days before the firebomb in Brighton killed five witnesses to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal.

Michael Havers’s sister was the secretary turned High Court judge Lady Justice Elizabeth Butler-Sloss who carried out the cover-up into the 1987 Cleveland Child Abuse Scandal. Ronnie’s book states that it was Thatch who appointed Butler-Sloss to the Court of Appeal, not the Lord Chancellor. Thatch appointed Butler-Sloss to the Court of Appeal just after Butler-Sloss had so helpfully Chaired the Inquiry into Cleveland (see post ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas And The Culprits Were Named’).

 

Another one of Ronnie’s colleagues on the Chester and Wales Circuit was Alun Talfan Davies QC. The Talfan Davies dynasty has ruled the roost at the BBC for a very long time now, but it was Alun who was the barrister with a huge practice in west Wales.

A paedophile ring with connections to Dafydd et al in north Wales operated in west Wales throughout the years that Alun Talfan Davies practised as a barrister.

Alun Talfan Davies was born near Swansea, the youngest son of the Calvanistic Methodist Minister William Talfan Davies. He was the brother of Aneurin Talfan Davies. Alun was educated at Gowerton Grammar School and he read law at Aberystwyth and at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge. His daughter Janet married the Welsh Rugby international Barry John.  Like Ronnie’s mate Sir William Mars-Jones (see post ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’), Talfan Davies was a member of Gray’s Inn. He specialised in industrial cases and was retained by the NUM.

Alun Talfan Davies was Recorder of Merthyr Tydfil, 1963-68; Recorder of Swansea, 1969; Recorder of Cardiff, 1969-71; Hon Recorder of Cardiff and Recorder of the Crown Court, 1972-86;

Alun Talfan Davies was Chairman of the Bank of Wales, 1991-95 – the child molester George Thomas was a Director of the Bank of Wales (see post ‘It Wasn’t On Our Radar’). Talfan Davies was President of the Court of the National Eisteddfod, 1979-82. Alun Talfan Davies was a member of the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board, 1976-85 and was a judge in the Court of Appeal of Jersey and Guernsey, 1969-83.

Talfan Davies was a member of Plaid in the 1930s but left for the Liberal Party. He unsuccessfully stood for Parliament four times, including for Denbigh in 1966. Talfan Davies was Chairman of the Liberal Party of Wales.

In 1940, with his brother Aneirin, Talfan Davies founded the Welsh language publishing firm Llyfrau’r Dryw. In 1958 they co-published ‘Y Geiriadur Mawr’, an influential Welsh dictionary. In 1969 they founded the current affairs magazine ‘Barn’.

With a group of friends and acquaintances Alun Talfan Davies formed Harlech Television (later HTV). Davies persuaded Lord Harlech to become Chairman of HTV Group while Davies became Vice-Chairman. In terms of unfortunate deaths and personal misfortune, Lord Harlech and his descendants displayed all the signs of having been targeted by the paedophiles’ friends (see post ’95 Glorious Years!’). 

In 1980 Talfan Davies co-founded the Welsh Portrait Sculpture Trust which commissioned a series of portrait busts of distinguished Welshmen from the sculptor Ivor Roberts-Jones. In 1982 he became a Trustee of the Welsh Sculpture Trust which established an outdoor sculpture collection in Margam Country Park. 

 

 

Lucille Hughes and other paedophiles’ friends are involved with the management of the CAB at a senior level. So was Ronnie Waterhouse.

Ronnie was appointed to the management committee of the Greater London CAB in March 1976 and remained until he became a High Court judge in 1978. He met regularly with their legal advisors, including Richard Thomas, who later became Director of Public Policy at Clifford Chance. Thomas was Information Commissioner, 2002-09 and is currently Deputy Chairman of Consumers’ Association.

Richard Thomas began his career in 1971 at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer and in 1974 began working for the CAB in Notting Hill. He went on to occupy positions in the National Consumer Council (from 1979) – where he was involved in the Campaign for Freedom of Information – and the Office of Fair Trading.

A document submitted to the Leveson Inquiry by witness Alec Owens indicates that Richard Thomas refused to prosecute perpetrators of phone hacking, despite receiving a recommendation that ‘all parties identified as being involved be jointly prosecuted for conspiracy to breach the Data Protection Act 1998.’

 

The Campaign for Freedom of Information is yet another body with which I had a bizarre experience when I mentioned the words ‘NHS in north Wales’. The Campaign for Freedom of Information was established in 1984 and by the summer of 1985 ‘The Guardian’ was running flattering articles about this organisation that was challenging the shadowy powers who were withholding info on UK citizens. After the mental health services in Wales smugly stated that there was no way that they would ever give me access to my own records – even after I had written to Ministers and found out that there was no legal reason for them withholding such access – and then began threatening me, I went down to London to stay with my friend and we went over to the office of the Campaign for Freedom of Information. That will have been in 1986.

There were a number of staff in the office and no other visitors. When I explained that I had come down from north Wales after encountering problems with the NHS compiling inaccurate documents about me, refusing to amend them and then denying me all further access to my records, my friend and I were met with an astonishing reaction. The staff literally yelled at us that they were a ‘campaigning organisation’ and not here to help individuals. Presuming that they had misunderstood and thought that I was asking them to take up a case for me, pay legal fees etc, I explained that all I wanted was some info and to draw their attention to what was happening in the NHS. The staff became phenomenally aggressive and actually pushed us out of their office. My friend – who was somewhat sharper than me and worked out that something weird was happening and that things were about to get nasty – observed that we ought to get out of there. As we walked away I remarked that when I got home I’d contact them again and perhaps I’d find someone more helpful than the nutters whom we’d just encountered. My friend observed that somehow she didn’t think that the Campaign for Freedom of Information was going to help me. She was quite right, the door was very firmly slammed in my face again when I had another try with them.

 

Maurice Frankel has been a leading light in the Campaign for Freedom of Information since it was set up and has been its Director since 1987. Frankel was a member of the Lord Chancellor’s Advisory Group on Implementation of the Freedom of Information Act and of the Commonwealth Group of Experts whose Freedom of Information Principles were adopted by Commonwealth Law Ministers in 1999. He is Deputy Chair of the whistleblowers charity ‘Public Concern at Work’ and is a cousin of the awful Baroness Ruth Deech.

 

I am currently in e mail correspondence with someone who has just had the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board mental health experience and is distressed because, among other things, inaccurate records were compiled about her and her attempts to have them rectified are being refused. The Betsi Board have also flouted many legal requirements and good practice guidelines in her case. She has told me that she regrets ever going near the mental health services. I know a number of other patients who maintained that the mental health records compiled about them in north Wales were so inaccurate that they bore very little relation to the truth.

In 1985 I thought that I was being singled out. I was in the end because I took on the paedophiles’ friends, but in terms of the arrant nonsense that was written on my records – it took 20 years, a High Court order and a threat by a judge to imprison the Chief Exec of the North West Wales NHS Trust to gain access to the full nonsense – I now realise that it was business as usual for the mental health services.

The nurse who blew the whistle on the Tawel Fan Scandal was sacked by the Betsi Board and struck off by the NMC a few weeks ago.

You’re doing a great job Maurice!

 

It was Ronnie Waterhouse who established a CAB in the Royal Courts of Justice – he identified a need – and it opened in Feb 1978. It was financed for 18 months by the Nuffield Foundation. The Australian lawyer Leonie Kelleher wrote a report which underlined the need that Ronnie’s antennae had detected for a CAB in the Royal Courts of Justice. Kelleher’s report was published in Dec 1980 and in the same month, a full time organiser for the CAB in the Royal Courts of Justice, Catherine Clarke, began work. The Dept of Trade funded that CAB until the spring of 1985.

On 2 Sept 1985 Leon Brittan was appointed Secretary of State for the Dept of Trade and Industry and Sir Peter Morrison was appointed as his Minister of State.

Until early 1987 the CAB in Bangor employed an excellent local solicitor who represented the victims of Dafydd and the paedophiles – he represented me. Dafydd telephoned him without my knowledge yet alone consent and tried to persuade him not to act for me. The solicitor continued to represent me. Some months later the CAB in Bangor ‘changed their policy’ and stopped employing him or indeed any other solicitors.

 

In 1986 Catherine Clarke died. Pamela Lloyd-Hart took over her job at the CAB at the Royal Courts of Justice. Records at Companies House inform us that Pamela Lloyd-Hart was a Director of the Royal Courts of Justice and Islington CAB, Nov 1995-Nov 1997. A paedophile ring operated in the children’s homes in Islington for many years, as Margaret Hodge, Jeremy Corbyn and many others knew. Pamela Lloyd-Hart resigned as Director of the RCJ and Islington CAB just as the Waterhouse Inquiry finished taking evidence from witnesses.

Ronnie Waterhouse was Chairman of the RCJ CAB’s management committee, 1980-92.

 

In the spring of 1991 I was taken to the Royal Courts of Justice in yet another attempt to have me imprisoned for contempt of court. The case was brought by Hempsons, the solicitors for the MDU, who were acting on the instructions of Dr Tony Francis (Dr X). Ann Ball acted for Hempsons. I now have documents in my possession demonstrating that Ann Ball advised Tony Francis not to pursue litigation against me but he ignored her advice. Ann Ball continued to act for him, although she knew that Francis had perjured himself. Ann Ball also knew the details of the very serious crime that I maintained was being committed by those working for the mental health services in north Wales.

So as the forces of the corrupt British judiciary were mobilised against me, I could have had the benefit of a CAB managed by Ronnie. Except that I didn’t know that it existed, its presence certainly wasn’t advertised on the day that I attended the Royal Courts of Justice.

 

The Attorney General who authorised that prosecution of me was Sir Patrick Mayhew. Who in a previous life had been a barrister who acted for the MDU and GMC. Mayhew was counsel at the GMC fitness to practice hearing of Dr Morris Fraser, the Belfast child psychiatrist who was convicted of child sex offences. Fraser was allowed to continue to practice and later worked at Springfield Hospital, the mental health unit attached to St George’s.

 

Companies House tells us that Pamela Lloyd Hart’s next venture was as a Director of the Mary Ward Legal Centre, 1998-99. In 1998 the address given for the Mary Ward Legal Centre was in Hampstead. The current address is Great Ormond Street Hospital.

 

A number of Ronnie’s fellow kind hearted colleagues in the judiciary set up an appeal to fund the CAB in the RJC after Thatch’s Gov’t cut off the supply of dosh. The appeal was Chaired by Mrs Justice Booth – I don’t think this was Booth as in Cherie, I presume that it must have been someone else – but didn’t reach its target. Lady Justice Arden then took over the appeal.

Lady Justice Mary Arden was born and brought up in Liverpool and educated at Huyton College. Her grandfather, father and brother were all Liverpool solicitors. The family firm was Gamon Arden and Co which merged with Hill Dickinson in 2007. Mary Arden read law at Girton College, Cambridge – where Ronnie’s friend Poppy was Bursar – and also took a degree at Harvard. She was appointed as a High Court judge in 1993 and was Chairman of the Law Commission, 1996-99. In 2000 Mary Arden was appointed to the Court of Appeal. She is Head of International Judicial Relations for England and Wales and a member of the Permanent Court of Arbitration at the Hague.

Lady Justice Arden featured in the ‘Women’s Hour’ ‘power list’. ‘And tomorrow on ‘Woman’s Hour’, Jenni Murray and Jane Garvey will be holding a discussion about sexual violence with their guest Baroness Helena Kennedy…’  The comedian Victor Lewis-Smith once upset a lot of people with a rude rap song about ‘Woman’s Hour’ – the less offensive lines included ‘I’ve got me Jenni Murray and I’ve got me damson jam’. I thought that the rap was very funny despite the outrage at Victor’s piss-taking of the ‘Woman’s Hour’ obsession with gynaecological problems – I didn’t realise in those days that a great many of the Strong Wimmin given air time on ‘Woman’s Hour’ are paedophiles’ friends.

Mary Arden is married to Jonathan Mance, who also became a High Court judge and a Lord Justice of Appeal. Mary and Jonathan were the first married couple to sit in the High Court and then became the first married couple to sit in the Court of Appeal. A power couple! No wonder Jenni and Jane were impressed.

Lord Jonathan Mance is the Deputy President of the Supreme Court. The President is of course Lady Brenda Hale (see post ‘In The Courts), another ‘Woman’s Hour’ favourite, who is a pal of St Helena Kennedy’s, who in turn was mates with Professor Nigel Eastman, one of those at St George’s who was colluding with Dafydd and the paedophiles. See post ‘Eve Was Framed – As Were A Lot Of Other People’ for further details of St Helena, who is not as much of a friend to oppressed wimmin as she would have us believe.

St Helena worked in Tooks Court Chambers, with Michael Mansfield. I really do not think that Michael Mansfield could possibly have not known about the Bar and judiciary being log jammed with those who were concealing the crimes of Dafydd and the paedophiles. It was in 1993 when I wrote to Mr Mansfield about the paedophiles’ friends of north Wales – just as a police investigation concluded that there was no evidence of a paedophile ring in north Wales.

Michael Mansfield and St Helena, in the spirit of helping the oppressed, took on a law graduate called Constance Briscoe, who later wrote a misery memoir to trump all misery memoirs. Constance became a barrister, then a part-time judge specialising in child and mental health cases because She Had Been There. It was not a good idea. By then everyone who knew Constance Briscoe considered her quite mad. She had extensive cosmetic surgery for no good reason – not just a nose job or a trout pout, but Constance had the bones of her feet removed and I think that she also had the operation which involves removing bone length from one’s legs. Constance flew to America to have all this done.
