Blog Under Attack Once More

Dear Readers

I have now added quite a bit more to the post ‘A Holy Fool Among A Feast of Fools’, but, once more, I have been stopped from finishing the post by jamming from an unknown source.

I am happy with what I have in the post so far, but I was intending to add yet more information about Peter Walker, Thatcher’s Energy Secretary during the NUM strike, 1984-85 and then Welsh Secretary, 1987-90, who had links with dodgy businesses and city investment firms and was mates with key members of Dafydd’s Gang. Walker was a pal of dodgy geezer the asset stripper Jim Slater, who was a pal of James Goldsmith and Nigel Lawson. It’s all in the post, but I have more to add which I have been unable to.

As I’m unable to amend anything further on ‘A Fool Among A Feast Of Fools’, I’m going to put the follow up information in a new post which I will be working on over the next few days. I am sorry about this, the information WILL all be up on the blog soon, but it does mean that ‘A Fool Among A Feast Of Fools’ looks messy and unfinished.

Please bear with me, I really do apologise, but I’ll bring all the loose ends together in future posts no matter how keen someone is to delay me.

By the way, because of the electronic interference with ‘A Fool Among A Feast Of Fools’, it does mean that I’m unable to post up comments in response to that post as well. Readers are welcome to comment in response to other posts if they wish to circumvent the problems…

I am a writer and a sociologist, originally from Somerset, but I’ve been based in Wales for most of my life. I had my first encounter with a mental health professional in 1984 at the age of 21. My GP described this man to my then partner – who also became a sociologist – as someone who had experienced ‘considerable success’. My meeting with this psychiatrist was a disaster and we attempted to complain about his insensitivity and highly inappropriate behaviour. That was the first time we were threatened and pressurised to withdraw a complaint against a mental health professional. This man is long dead – he was a retired psychiatrist from the North Wales Hospital Denbigh, T. Gwynne Williams, who was working shifts in the student health centre at University College of North Wales (now Bangor University). We discovered years later that this ‘successful man’ was notorious – he had been an enthusiastic lobotomist…

  1. Thanks to the reader who’s let me know that there is still someone who has packaged this blog as a PDF and is marketing it online. This is nothing to do with me as the Gas Board used to tell That’s Life when Esther rang them in the 1980s; this is the genuine blog here, anyone is welcome to read it without payment. I don’t know what is in the version that is popping up as a PDF, I have just had a look at it but because it wouldn’t let me in without signing up to whoever the plagiarists are, I didn’t bother. They could well have altered the contents in the way that the Top Doctors did with my medical records and even the GMC did with the letters of complaint that I wrote them.

    Please don’t believe any other versions but this blog here. And don’t pay for it either, I’ve had a lifetime of leeches getting rich on the backs of me and Brown, we are not greedy sods, we are genuinely committed to open access of our work and sharing ideas. Although I did become a little jaded after 10 years of the paedophiles’ friends sitting in research seminars listening to what I was planning for my next piece of work, only to find that a rat had run to Fungus/Edwina Hart or another party, let them know what I was planning to do, only to bag the work themselves and screw it up. But that was why they were given the work wasn’t it, if I did it, it would be done properly and I wouldn’t be wetting myself with worry lest Peter Higson or Sister Hutt ‘wasn’t happy’ that I’d mentioned such and such an outrage.

    Anyone for Service User Involvement? It doesn’t work suckers, because it wasn’t rooted in any theory of citizenship or democracy. And I Is A Service User so of course no-one was going to fund me to expose the whole sham.

    But there we are, Richard Sennett talked to the janitor and I was the janitor. So I could piss off out of it because the jobs were needed by people who talked to the janitor or Peter Beresford or Rachel Perkins who were mental health professionals who then reconstructed themselves as Service User Experts…
