Just a few days ago John McDonnell announced that the Labour Party were going to back the trade unions to protect workers in the gig economy. John McDonnell has obviously noticed – but not admitted – that for many years now, the trade union movement has dismally failed to protect the lowest paid or insecure workers. Instead the trade unions have been dedicated to helping the semi-professional or professional middle classes – Angels, teachers, university lecturers etc. Not people with bankers’ salaries, but not people who are anywhere near the bottom of the heap; people who believe that they are ‘low paid’ because they are on £40k pa. I acknowledge that £40k pa in central London doesn’t get you very far if you have children, but nonetheless there are people in London who are working for far, far less, whom the trade union movement has only recently noticed even exist.
I treasure the memory of Eileen Tilley, the corrupt UCU rep at Bangor University, planning a march of ‘her members’ through Bangor, to highlight their oppression. They were obviously going to go down through the High Street, past all the empty shops, the pound shops, the charity shops, past the Job Centre where there were very few jobs offering anything above the minimum wage, marching past the many people who had gone into Bangor to do their shopping on the bus because they didn’t have a car. Do you know stressed Tilley, that some lecturers with years of experience were only on £40k pa? Er, yes. Do you know that some of those lecturers – not all but some – did absolutely nothing and gave their teaching and marking to the PhD students and post-docs to do (who were not paid for it) and enjoyed full protection from Tilley and UCU when they behaved appallingly towards their colleagues? Do you know that when Tilley was planning to march on Bangor, the average annual income in Gwynedd was less that £18k? See previous posts for more Eileen Tilley-related lies and laffs.
It was Lord Clive Jenkins, he who was substantially responsible for ensuring that the Lord Windbag ended up as leader of the Labour Party – that went well didn’t it – who declared that his big achievement had been to unionise the middle classes. Many of the now unionised middle classes are employing those whom the unions are not interested in as their cleaners. For the background on the over-indulged twat that was Clive Jenkins, see post ‘I Warn You…’.
The ‘Morning Star’ devoted much coverage to John McDonnell’s ‘pledge’. The ‘Morning Star’ is excited about the TUC beano which I think is being held at the moment or is about to be held, so all the old favourites have been given space in the newspaper over the past few days – UCU, Len McCluskey and Len’s union UNITE etc.
Mark Serwotka, the General Secretary of PCS, the Public and Commercial Services union, the union for civil servants, has been in the ‘Morning Star’ as well and Mark was also the lead story on the ‘Today’ programme yesterday. Mark is the latest figure in the firing line re the allegations and counter-allegations of anti-semitism that are currently destroying the Labour Party. Mark Serwotka is loved by many on the left, although the ammo fired at him by his critics has received much coverage, such as his salary of well over £100k pa. Mark has also provided the Top Doctors with a bit of free PR. In 2013 Serwotka was fitted with a battery-powered ventricular assist device after picking up a viral infection from the family dog. He was readmitted to hospital on 30 August 2016, when the ventricular assist device developed a clot and his doctors then placed him on the urgent transplant list. In December 2016 Mark had a heart transplant at Papworth Hospital.
As any fule kno, whistleblowers find that somehow they just never receive effective treatment from the Top Doctors, no matter how serious or disabling their conditions. I had yet another e mail from a target yesterday; someone who worked as an Angel in Manchester, relocated to north Wales years ago and complained about Dafydd. She has certainly paid a high price – sectioned, discredited and refused treatment for a number of serious conditions which she subsequently developed. She ended up losing a leg and is now in a wheelchair, having not worked for many years. She told me that this had happened because she challenged the north Wales NHS over their malpractice. Doing that won’t have helped, but I was able to reassure her that where Dafydd and the mental health services were concerned, no-one is safe. I spent 30 years observing at close quarters and there is undoubtedly a ‘culture’ (more accurately described as an ‘evil’) within the mental health services in which patients are all seen as the Enemy. Whatever their background, patients are viewed as Manipulative, time-wasters, fakes, lazy, benefit scroungers and liars and are pathologised by the ‘services’. I have reassured many people that there was nothing that they could have done to have elicited appropriate care and treatment. The ‘services’ were running a trafficking ring and no decent members of staff who did join them ever lasted more than a few months, they just walked away. Some of those staff did try to raise concerns about the abuse of patients, serious misconduct and severe workplace bullying but were ignored. They then found that their lives were destroyed and that they could no longer obtain jobs or effective medical care. Word got around and now no-one dares blow the whistle.
As the General Secretary of PCS, Mark Serwotka will have received a warm welcome from the Top Docs. Mark’s union contains many people who, by keeping their mouths shut, have ensured that the sort of criminality which prevailed in north Wales continues. Even Mark’s members in junior positions such as those who work in the benefits offices are witness to the wrongdoing – they see the paperwork compiled by the NHS/social services staff, they also interview the claimants and they do notice that there are discrepancies, sometimes major ones.
In the late 1990s the benefits agency threatened to prosecute me for fraud. I was called in for a recorded interview with two Interrogators, after being given a caution that this was a criminal investigation. I stood accused of claiming disability benefits while working. I explained that I had indeed done that, but I was legally allowed to work under the then ‘therapeutic earnings’ scheme. They snapped at me that I should have received permission from a Top Doc and the DSS before I undertook the work. I told them that Dr Tony Francis had told me to go ahead and begin the part-time job that I’d been offered – it wasn’t a post as Chair of ICI, it was a part time job in the notorious chicken factory in Llangefni, Grampian Meats, where I witnessed a few things that almost equalled the practices in the NHS, but that’s another story. I was accused of lying and it was observed that as someone with a Masters degree – someone had told them that as well – of course I ‘knew the rules’ and a prosecution against me would now be mounted.
The benefits agency made one mistake. During the interrogation, they pompously opened my file and leafed through the documents. I caught a glimpse of a letter from Tony Francis to them, regarding my application to undertake part-time work. I pointed it out to them – then I saw ANOTHER letter from Tony Francis, dated a few months later, once again re the therapeutic earnings scheme. So they had TWO letters from Tony Francis informing them that I was applying to undertake part-time work, as I was legally allowed. I did not receive any communication from them giving me permission but no-one told me that I should have. Francis told me that I could go ahead and get a job. So I did.
When I spotted the two letters from Tony Francis, I challenged the officious gits. They blustered and did the ‘rules are rules’ bit and ‘this time we won’t prosecute if you agree to pay us the dosh back’. The dosh involved was not much – I had only been earning an extra £40/week as allowed for a few weeks. So I said OK. I then received a letter demanding more than £1000k that I had ‘defrauded’. I asked what was going on, pointing out that we were talking about £40 per/week for a few weeks. I was told that because I had ‘broken the rules’, I had to repay ALL the benefits that I received for the few weeks that I had worked and I was now barred from claiming benefits having been caught fiddling.
I had no option but to get a job, although according to the mental health services I was ‘seriously ill’. I wasn’t in a good state, but that was because they kept having me arrested. So I did get a job despite the mental health services telling me that I wasn’t fit for full-time work. I got a job in an old folks home. It went fine for a week until the owner of the home was asked if he knew that he was employing a Dangerous Mental Patient…
So I got another job. The same thing happened again….
This proved to be a pattern which persisted until the day that I left Wales.
Years later I found out who had reported me for fraud back when I was working at the chicken factory in the late 1990s. It was an employee of the mental health services…
This was just my experience re the collusion of the benefits agency with wrongdoing which was the tip of yet another iceberg involving the paedophile gang. Because I am not Eileen Tilley and I was mates with people who really were having a hard time, I heard other stories of the benefits agency shafting people who had been targeted by those we know and love. More recently, one of my more middle class friends who’s daughter is the manager of a benefits agency section in an industrial northern town told me that there is a massive problem with organised gangs using false IDs and then claiming disability and other benefits. My friend’s daughter was working with a big police investigation into this type of crime.
Dafydd has been involved with false IDs for many years now. I have been shown the documents and have heard people boasting of the favours that Dafydd had done them. Years ago Dafydd was obtaining British Army pensions for people who had not served in the Army (see previous posts) and he was also very helpful to people who should not have had driving licences either…
Serious organised crime.
‘There is no evidence that Dr Jones has ever behaved in an unprofessional manner.’
Mark Serwotka has been General Secretary of the PCS since 2002, so he wasn’t in that particular post when the benefits agency in north Wales was colluding with the paedophile gang. The PCS has a complex and rather troubled history and Serwotka only became General Secretary after a civil war within the union.
Serwotka stood on the left wing ticket against the ‘moderate’ incumbent, the General Secretary Barry Arthur Reamsbottom, who had also been General Secretary of the CPSA (Civil and Public Services Association), the PCS’s predecessor.
Reamsbottom is from Aberdeen and lived in a children’s home run by Catholic nuns, Nazareth House, from the age of 7 to 14. He started his career in the DHSS in Aberdeen, before becoming a full-time trade union employee and eventually Press Officer for the CPSA, 1987-92.
Reamsbottom was elected General Secretary of CPSA in 1998 on the Moderate ticket. In 1999, Reamsbottom oversaw the merger of CPSA and the Public Services, Tax and Commerce Unions (PTC) to form the PCS. As part of the merger, there was an agreement that Reamsbottom could continue as General Secretary until 2004. However, in a union members vote, 97% ordered a fresh election. Reamsbottom decided not to stand for re-election on the proviso he stood down in 2002, but would continue to be paid until 2004.
Reamsbottom’s wanted Hugh Lanning to take over as General Secretary of the PCS, not Mark Serwotka. An election was held in 2000, in which Lanning lost to Serwotka. Lanning accepted the result, but Reamsbottom, rather than retire as agreed in 2002, instead continued in the post claiming that the election had been invalid. At a meeting of the Moderate-dominated PCS Executive in May 2002, a motion was carried reversing the election of Serwotka. Reamsbottom said afterwards, ‘I have been through a hard school… I would rather go out in a box’.
While Barry Reamsbottom was General Secretary of the union representing people who were colluding with a gang of traffickers in north Wales – and no doubt elsewhere as well – people I knew in north Wales did go out in a box.
After Serwotka took office, Reamsbottom and Serwotka proceeded to countermand one another, with Reamsbottom ordering Serwotka’s staff and secretary to stop working for him. In late 2002, a High Court judge confirmed that the election had been carried out properly and Reamsbottom had no further claim to the office.
So in spite of all the crap which has been thrown at Serwotka, the ‘moderate’ Reamsbottom seems to have been colluding with serious organised crime and was prepared to do anything to hang onto his job, even after he and his mate Lanning were very firmly voted out by their own members.
Baz Reamsbottom became Vice President of the NATO-sponsored think tank, the Trade Union Committee for European and Transatlantic Understanding.
In Nov 2000, the ‘Mail On Sunday’ published an article about Reamsbottom which included the information that Reamsbottom had ‘revealed he organised a breakout by 60 children from a notorious home where they were beaten and abused by nuns during the 1960s…lived at Nazareth House….repeatedly struck and humiliated by staff in the Catholic Church-run order. In September, nun Marie Docherty, also known as Sister Alphonso, was found guilty of cruelty by beating and force-feeding children during a period between 1965 and 1980…’
Reamsbottom provided this heart-breaking interview during the year in which the PCS voted for Mark Serwotka rather than Reamsbottom’s mate Hugh Lanning, which caused Reamsbottom to break the agreement that he would stand down himself and hand over in 2002. The tear-jerking interview was provided 10 months after the publication of the Waterhouse Report, when people were still yelling loudly that the Waterhouse Inquiry was a massive cover-up and that some very serious criminals leading a huge paedophile ring had not been touched at all.
Reamsbottom told the ‘Mail On Sunday’ all about those cruel nuns at Nazereth House, but he didn’t mention a word about the Top Docs in north Wales slowly but surely framing those who had Dared Complain, let alone neglecting them so badly that they were found dead.
Tony Francis, who was one of those facilitating the trafficking ring in north Wales, used to tell his patients that although he grew up in East Anglia in a middle class family, his mum was very troubled, suffered with severe depression throughout her life and had been unable to look after him when he was a child. Francis used to tell us that his mum had been a devout Roman Catholic although as a child, she had been horribly abused in an institution run by the Catholic Church. Francis talked about this years before anyone openly discussed child abuse in the Catholic Church or indeed acknowledged the existence of the gang that he was facilitating himself. He did say the same things over a period of many years though, so I suspect that he was telling the truth about that.
Tony Francis also told us that his wife Sadie’s mother had been a doctor, but became an artist rather than work as a Top Doctor. Sadie’s mother had been pressurised into entering medicine by her own mother, who had been one of Britain’s first women doctors. I remember Francis telling me that Sadie’s family lived in the Yorkshire area – her artwork was that of industrial landscapes. So Sadie grew up in a medical family in Yorkshire and probably a very grand and possibly famous one if her grandmother had been one of the first women doctors, because they didn’t let just any women into medical schools in those days. Furthermore, Yorkshire was at the heart of that big paedophile gang which was facilitated by the Top Doctors, starred Jimmy Savile and had links to Dafydd et al.
If I’d been Sadie the last thing that I would have done is to have become a Top Doctor and moved to north Wales. However, a possible explanation as to why this happened has occurred to me. Tony Francis arrived to work in north Wales in the early 1980s from Manchester University (see post ‘Ian Brockington’s Mischief’), where he had been working with Dafydd’s mate Dr Bob Hobson, who had facilitated the earlier abuse ring at the Maudsley and relocated to Manchester in 1974, where he facilitated another ring there (see post ‘The Mentor’). Tony Francis arrived in north Wales as part of the reinforcements in the wake of Mary Wynch embarking on her historical litigation against Dafydd et al, which by the time that Francis arrived at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh to work was on its way to the Master Of The Rolls (see post ‘The Mary Wynch Case – Details’).
That lot knew that they could be in very deep trouble. Although Mary subsequently won her case, those who were ordered to pay compensation refused and simply demanded that Mary return to court to enforce payment. Mary did take further legal action and also tried to follow up other criminal wrongdoing. Again she proved her case. However in 1994, Michael Howard, who was by then Home Secretary, chewed Mary up and spat her out, leaving her elderly, penniless and with a compensation payment that would not have covered her legal fees yet alone anything else (see post ‘The Mary Wynch Case – Details’).
Michael Howard had grown up in Swansea, where there was an abuse gang operating linked to Dafydd’s gang in north Wales. Howard was a barrister himself. In 1975 he married Sandra Paul, who in the 1960s was a ‘model’ and knew much about the Ugandan activities of Swinging London at the time. Sandra Paul’s first husband was Robin Douglas-Home, the nephew of the former PM Sir Alec Douglas-Home. At the time of his divorce from Sandra in 1965, Robin was discussing Uganda with Princess Margaret. Who had already discussed Uganda with Jeremy Thorpe. Thorpe used to boast that he had discussed Uganda with Ma’am Darling and her husband Lord Snowdon and it was partly because of this that various events in Thorpe’s history were not raised at his 1979 Old Bailey trial for inciting the murder of his former partner Norman Scott (see post ‘My How Things Haven’t Changed’). Lord Snowdon enjoyed the services of rent boys, as well as a variety of other people and had links with north Wales, his grandfather being Top Doctor psychiatrist Sir Robert Armstrong-Jones, who grew up in the region and studied at UCNW (Bangor University). See post ’95 Glorious Years!’
Robin Douglas-Home killed himself in 1968, after suffering serious depression. Which is a fate that has met many people who could have acted as witnesses to the activities of Dafydd and his associates.
For more details regarding Michael Howard, Sandra Paul and Robin Douglas-Home, see eg. post ‘The Crucible’.
I have previously discussed how, in the mid-1980s, a collection of Nice Young Doctors arrived in north Wales in an attempt to pretend that Things Had Changed. These Nice Young Doctors were not obviously barking mad like Dafydd and they often had much better bedside manners than those Top Docs who had inflicted themselves on the population previously, but they frequently turned out to be no better and they certainly didn’t stop the serious abuses and crimes of their colleagues.
When Tony Francis arrived in north Wales, Sadie was advertised as that lovely young wife of his who was also a Top Doc, but not a consultant, just a junior Top Doc at the North Wales Hospital, Denbigh with the dreadful Dafydd. I was told that Sadie was desperate to get away from Dafydd and Denbigh and sure enough she subsequently turned up as a Top Doc at Ysbyty Gwynedd. Like the Little Women who lied about being attacked by Dangerous Patients in court in order to secure convictions against complainants and witnesses, Sadie was robustly touted as a Caring Lady Doctor. She was working with a paedophile gang, she knew it and furthermore she had known that she would be working with them when she and Tony relocated from Manchester. But Sadie was from a medical family who worked with the related gang in Yorkshire. Presumably Sadie was every bit as much a part of the reinforcements sent in to help Dafydd et al post-Mary Wynch as Tony was, if not more so.
Sadie coming from Medical Royalty might explain why she somehow was appointed a consultant in the late 1980s/early 1990s after she had been a clinical assistant. I have explained previously how no Top Doc ever wanted a job as a clinical assistant because it was categorised as a ‘non-career’ position, one in which a Top Doc could not become a consultant no matter how much they redeemed themselves. I have known for years that a fiddle was done on the part of Gwynedd Health Authority to enable Sadie to bag that post, but the fiddle must have been known to the GMC as well, because they hold details of Top Doc’s CVs and posts. Because they were all so dishonest at Ysbyty Gwynedd, the patients were unaware of Sadie’s very junior status when she arrived in north Wales and I don’t think that any other patient but me knew that Sadie should never have been appointed as a consultant. Yet by 1991, Sadie was appearing on documentation as a ‘consultant psychiatrist’. So the sleight of hand took place at some point in the late 1980/early 1990s.
Sadie was legally barred from becoming a consultant. But there she was, a consultant psychiatrist in Gwynedd, registered with the GMC. While she repeatedly perjured herself, along with her husband, in the early 1990s in successive attempts to have me imprisoned, with the MDU and the MDU’s solicitor, Ann Ball, for Hempsons, knowing that perjury was being committed. See previous posts. Ann Ball and Hempsons had advised the Francis’s not to take legal action against me. The Francis’s ignored that advice and Ann Ball and Sir Robert Francis QC (see post ‘The Sordid Role Of Sir Robert Francis QC’) still went ahead with the cases against me.
The prosecutions were authorised by the then Attorney-General Sir Patrick Mayhew, a corrupt barrister who had previously worked for the MDU and who, some years previously, had been responsible for ensuring that the paedophile Top Doctor Dr Morris Fraser continued to practice after being convicting of molesting a boy. Mayhew served as N Ireland Secretary, 1992-97, under John Major, during the North Wales Police investigation into the possibility of a paedophile ring operating in north Wales and the first part of the Waterhouse Inquiry. The North Wales/Cheshire ring was linked with the N Ireland ring based at Kincora Boys’ Home in Belfast, which was alleged to have involved Lord Mountbatten and Anthony Blunt.
Dr Morris Fraser had ‘treated’ boys at Kincora and later worked at Springfield Hospital, the mental health unit attached to St George’s Hospital Medical School and then UCH. I was working at St George’s when the Francis’s mounted the first prosecution for contempt of court against me and by the time that they mounted the second one just weeks later, I had been forced out of my job, after a period as a patient in Springfield Hospital. The Top Docs at Springfield were, without my knowledge, directly in touch with Dafydd, Tony Francis and Lucille Hughes and everyone was agreed that I was ‘extremely dangerous’ and should be placed in a secure hospital (see previous posts).
Three years before I began work at St George’s, their Professor of Paediatrics, Oliver Brooke was jailed for the possession of child porn. Ollie was a key player in a pan-European paedophile/trafficking ring.
The Chair of the GMC when Sadie was perjuring herself and probably when she was given that job as a consultant was Robert – later Lord – Kilpatrick. Kilpatrick was a Scottish Top Doctor, who before he was appointed Chair of the GMC, was Dean of Leicester University Medical School (see post ‘Remember Girls – Never Get Into A Car With A Stranger!’). Leicester University was fully on board with the paedophile ring in Leicester, as were the NHS and other welfare services in Leicester. See previous posts. In 1987, Dr James Earp, a Top Doctor in Leicester, colluded with Dafydd and the gang when Earp was asked to provide an ‘independent’ opinion after Dafydd et al mounted a prosecution against me (see post ‘An Expert From England’).
When Sadie and Tony were doing everything possible to have me imprisoned, one Greville Janner, then the MP for Leicester West, had recently been interviewed by the police as part of an investigation into sexual assaults on children in care in Leicester. Janner was never charged, although many years later the DPP admitted that he should have been and was unable to explain why he wasn’t. Janner’s mate Frank Beck, a Leicestershire social worker, was charged, convicted and subsequently received several life sentences for many, many sexual and physical assaults upon children in care in Leicestershire. See previous posts. Beck always maintained that he took the blame for crimes committed by High Society others who got off Scot free. Which was exactly what the bottom-feeding social care/social workers who were jailed as a result of the ‘exhaustive’ investigations in north Wales and Cheshire said.
When Greville Janner next appeared in the Commons after being interviewed by the police for offending against children, he received a round of applause from the public spirited bunch that cluttered up Westminster. The Speaker at the time was Bernard Weatherill, who had succeeded the child molester George Thomas in 1983. Which was about the time that Tony and Sadie arrived in north Wales. Tony had studied and trained at Cardiff, where the whole medical and political establishment were concealing George Thomas’s offending and also knew what Dafydd et al were doing in north Wales. Tony Francis told his patients that when he was at Cardiff University, he knew the Windbag.
When Frank Beck was jailed, Tony and Sadie knew where a great many bodies were buried. Literally.
I have no idea who Sadie’s mother was, let alone her history-making grandmother, but Sadie’s name always appeared on the Medical Register as Sadie Bentz Francis, so presumably Bentz was a family name, possibly a maternal one.
It’s Wimmin Breaking The Glass Ceiling!
|The Lord Weatherill|
‘We Didn’t Know’
Lord Robert Kilpatrick was asked to become Chair of the GMC in 1989. Did he respond to a distress flare as well? By 1989, I was writing to the GMC raising my deepest concerns about the conduct of Top Docs in north Wales, Mary had been featured in the London-based media and Alison Taylor wouldn’t shut up either.
Sadie was not the only Top Doctor at Ysbyty Gwynedd who should not have held a position as a consultant. Quasim Ijaz was given a position as a consultant psychiatrist when he should not have and followed it up with a truly disastrous record of patient harm. See previous posts. In the mid-1990s, Ysbyty Gwynedd hit the headlines when one of their cardiologists, Dr David Thomas, drove his car off the edge of a mountain pass in a suicide attempt. He was sectioned and detained in the Hergest Unit; the other patients liked him and felt very sorry for him. However, he should never have been treated there, because his confidentiality was breached in every way. David Thomas had tried to kill himself after it was discovered that he’d lied about his qualifications and should never have been given a job as a cardiologist. The senior managers of Gwynedd Health Authority ranted away in the media about how they’d never have the lying bastard back and I watched it all knowing that David Thomas was not the only Top Doc who had lied and shouldn’t have had a job as a consultant.
The Medical Director of Ysbyty Gwynedd was Terry Maxwell, a heart and lung specialist. Maxwell was a graduate of Liverpool and was on such good terms with them that Liverpool Medical School rang his daughter Sonia up BEFORE she had applied to medical school and offered her an unconditional place to read medicine, because as one of Sonia’s close mates told me ‘they know her dad’. Sonia Maxwell subsequently went to a London medical school, so two fingers up to Liverpool, but later rocked up working as a GP in Llanberis. Where she refused to treat a Hergest Unit patient who had complained…
When David Thomas was in the news, Tony Francis told me that the senior managers of Gwynedd Health Authority were trying to force Sadie out of her job because of her support for David Thomas. Those senior managers knew that, like Dr Thomas, Sadie should not have had her job. It was they who had appointed her. Terry Maxwell was the Medical Director who gradually closed the mental health services in Gwynedd down in the run up to the Waterhouse Inquiry and throughout it. Scores of patients became destitute and a number died. Maxwell was given a bonus by the Health Authority for doing it.
Maxwell won’t have put the boot into the mental health services because they were facilitating a trafficking ring, because he was fully on board with that anyway. Terry Maxwell was known as a complete bastard who lined his pocket from his private work, he had no principles. The grade A scrap between Maxwell, David Thomas, Sadie, Tony and Uncle Tom Cobley and all will just have been another example of the paedophile gang and their friends scrapping, which they did constantly. They exceeded even the description of the infighting between the ancient Greeks, as described on Melvyn Bragg’s ‘In Our Time’ yesterday.
For more about Terry Maxwell, see post ‘ Maxwell’s Silver Hammer’.
Interestingly enough, Mark Serwotka was adopted from a Catholic orphanage in Cardiff, by a Polish-born British father and a Welsh mother. In 1979, aged sixteen, Mark joined the Civil Service and started work as a benefits clerk, joining the union on the first day at work. Serwotka became a union representative in 1980 and a personal case officer in 1995.
After Serwotka won his battles with Reamsbottom and Lanning to become General Secretary of the PCS, in 2005 he was elected unopposed for another term. No other candidates were allowed to stand as Serwotka was the only candidate with the required 25 branch nominations. In 2009, Serwotka was re-elected for a five year term, gaining 37,866 votes against Rob Bryson’s 21,883. In 2014, Serwotka was elected unopposed for a fourth five-year term.
In the 2000 General Secretary election, Serwotka pledged that if elected he would only accept the equivalent of an average civil servant’s wage. Serwotka returns around £8,000 of his annual salary to the union. In 2011, his total package was worth £126,258 including pension contributions of £27,860.
How many ‘average civil servants’ earn £100k? I look forward to Mark Serwotka joining Eileen Tilley on her next March For The Oppressed through Bangor. Perhaps Tilley should choose Blaenau Ffestiniog for her next Jarrow March of the Middle Classes, they’re having an even harder time in Blaenau Ffestiniog than they are in Bangor and they didn’t even have a cash point in the town until a few months ago after Liz Saville Roberts, the local Plaid MP, led a campaign . At least now the merchant bankers over there can take out a few fivers for their essentials. Let UCU take the fight to the Fat Cats!
Serwotka was a member of Socialist Organiser in the late 1980s and early 1990s. He caused controversy during a speech at the 1985 Annual Conference of the Civil and Public Services Association when he described part-time workers, many of whom were trade union members, as ‘Scab Labour’. He was later a supporter of the Socialist Alliance and then Respect.
In February 2013, Serwotka was among those who gave their support to the People’s Assembly in a letter published by ‘The Guardian’ newspaper. Serwotka attempted to vote in the 2015 Labour Leadership Election, but was among those who had their vote rejected by the Party. Not that the attempts to rig the voting worked, Jezza was still elected.
It all rather reminded me of the spoof article allegedly written by Carol Thatcher which ‘Private Eye’ published years ago, in which Carol wrote that ‘the family were all at the count and dad made everyone laugh by ripping up all the slips which didn’t have a cross next to mum’s name’.
In March 2016, Serwotka rejoined the Labour Party after being expelled from it over 25 years earlier. He wrote in ‘The Huffington Post’: ‘Jeremy [Corbyn] is the first Labour leader in a generation who unequivocally supports the unions and his opposition to the trade union bill has been crucial.’ He added ‘I have joined to support Jeremy in transforming the party. And I want as many people as possible to join Labour, and to get involved in the fight against cuts where they live. This is our chance to build a social movement and form a government that can offer hope to the millions of people that deserve so much better than these contemptible Tories’.
Those will be the contemptible Tories who were re-elected throughout the 1980s and the first half the 1990s because no-one on the left was prepared to blow the whistle on what exactly was going on in Thatch’s and Major’s Gov’ts.
This Baroness grew up on Anglesey and her parents were good friends with Lord Cledwyn, the Labour MP for Anglesey, 1951-70. Lord Cledwyn first met Sunny Jim Callaghan in the Baroness’s parent’s house in Holyhead in 1949. Lord Cledwyn, years later, provided a substantial boost to the Windbag’s political career. Lucille Hughes was the Children’s Officer for Anglesey, 1966-69.
Those contemptible Tories were succeeded by another lucky winner, who was equally contemptible:
Serwotka is married, an avid Cardiff City fan and lives in Chipstead, Surrey. Ahead of a visit by Pope Benedict XVI in September 2010, Serwotka was named as one of the hundred most influential Catholics in Britain by ‘The Tablet’.
Amidst the almighty noise concerning organised abuse in the Catholic Church, the BBC are now banging on about what the Catholic Church did in Chile in terms of sexual abuse, there was a programme about it recently on Radio 4. What the Catholic Church did in Chile was certainly not very nice, but there was an elephant in the room which was carefully ignored by Radio 4 – a man called General Pinochet. After overthrowing a democratically elected leader, Augusto Pinochet murdered thousands of people while the British Gov’t had diplomatic links with him and supported his regime.
In October 1998, an elderly Pinochet was indicted for human rights violations – including 94 counts of torture of Spanish citizens, the 1975 assassination of a Spanish diplomat and one count of conspiracy to commit torture – committed in Chile, by a Spanish magistrate who obtained an international arrest warrant; the idea was to extradite Pinochet to Spain to face trial. Pinochet was placed under house arrested while in a private clinic in London six days later and held in London for a year and a half – first at the clinic, then at a privately rented house – before finally being released by the British Gov’t in March 2000.
While in London, Pinochet had tea with his old mate Thatch, who was outraged at the attempt to put the old bastard on trial and described him as a ‘good friend of Britain’. The then Home Secretary Jack Straw tied himself up in knots in his efforts not to have the murdering git handed over to the Spanish authorities. When Pinochet was initially placed under arrest he didn’t realise – in the luxury of his surroundings with his every need attended to by the best Top Doctors that blood money could buy, he assumed that the police officers had been placed there to protect him. Which turned out to be the correct assumption. No-one got in to assassinate him and the Top Doctors provided evidence that the poor old General was on his last legs and was far too frail and near to death’s door to stand trial. Jack kindly accepted the word of the Top Docs and used it to overturn a Law Lords decision to extradite him.
Thatcher’s mate was loaded into a wheelchair and onto a plane, where he flew back to Chile. Upon arrival in Chile, Pinochet got up out of his Magic Wheelchair, having made a splendid recovery during the flight home and walked over to his waiting family, where he was warmly welcomed. Thatcher’s friend lived for another six years.
I will soon be blogging about the expensive Top Docs and the private London hospital who assisted and hosted the old torturer; he had gone all the way to London in the first place to have an operation on his back.
The identities of the Top Docs who lied in their evidence to Jack in order to save a war criminal from trial were not made public.
I can reassure everyone however that for once Dafydd was not involved. I knew the Hergest patient who, when Spain wanted Pinochet extradited, rang Dafydd, pretending to be from the Spanish Embassy, addressed Dafydd as ‘Senor Jones’ asked Dafydd if he would certify Pinochet as being ‘fit for trial’. Dafydd slammed the phone down. Which was unusual for Dafydd, he usually said yes to anything, no matter how illegal or ridiculous, once the magic words ‘money is no object Dr Jones’ had been uttered. Perhaps by then Dafydd’s ‘self-esteem’ had taken such a battering that he was no longer prepared to believe that world leaders were in need of his services. Unless of course Dafydd had already supplied the expert opinion to Jack Straw stating that Pinochet was NOT fit for trial and had to be released and flown back home first class….
Wife of a VC who has challenged a paedophile gang needs life-saving treatment for a brain tumour? Oh fuck off. Now where’s my next patient, the elderly Chilean gentleman with the bad back? Ooh don’t worry sir, you’ll be well-looked after here…
I do keep stressing this – the RC Church might have much to answer for, but the Top Docs are at the bottom of every scandal. They provide the dishonest medical opinions for courts; they get the early retirements and pensions for people who have been caught doing nasty things to people in their care and others; they section the dissenters and declare whistleblowers unfit for work; and when they get really desperate, they fail to provide effective treatment for life-threatening conditions. The Top Docs are at the bottom of every slurry pit. Without the Top Docs, the sex abuse rings which the world is now fretting about could never have operated. The media have not mentioned a word. Of course not, no-one wants to die slowly and painfully or find that they ‘cannot be revived’ after a heart attack, like poor Michael Carr, the MP for Bootle, who took on both the paedophiles’ friends as well as Militant (see post ‘News From Sicily’). No wonder Mr Carr lasted only just over 50 days as the MP for the constituency which included Walton Hospital, which was run by Militant.
When I was an undergrad at UCNW in the early 1980s, there was a Chilean girl in the Dept of Plant Biology who was either a PhD student or a post-doc, Catalina. She was a big fan of General Pinochet and was from a family who were connected to his regime. One evening, the BBC screened a programme about the disappeared in Chile and Catalina was furious at the bad PR that resulted. She explained to us that the disappeared were just gypsies and other low-life who didn’t matter anyway, so what did the BBC think they were doing making such a documentary. My mate Anne Vernon was particularly gobsmacked by Catalina’s comments. Three years later the paedophile gang killed Anne. Well she was a witness to what had happened to low-life like me wasn’t she, so we won’t worry about that death…
In the Good Old Days of Pinochet’s regime in Chile and General Galtieri’s regime in Argentina, I remember that in the UK, the left made a great deal of the Brave Priests and Nuns who Resisted those murderous regimes. Which indeed some of them did, not everybody colluded. When Thatch went to war with Galtieri, the right wing press finally began publishing how deeply unpleasant Galtieri’s regime was, although the Tories had previously established diplomatic links with Galtieri. Shortly after Thatch won the General Election, Geoffrey Howe popped over to Argentina and made a speech in which he stated that the British people had recently elected a Gov’t with similar views to the Argentinian junta. (Look this up if you don’t believe me.) After war was declared, the tabloids in the UK suddenly began running articles on Galtieri’s men dropping nuns out of helicopters over the ocean.
Geoffrey Howe had been a barrister based in Wales and he and his wife were close friends of Sir Ronnie Waterhouse. See previous posts for more info on Geoffrey Howe, as well as his deep and meaningful friendship with Ronnie. Both of the Howes concealed the Westminster Paedophile Ring, including the branch run by Dafydd et al in north Wales. Lady Elspeth Howe served as Deputy Chairman of the EOC, 1975 -79 and in various other capacities from 1980. She was later made Chair of the Broadcasting Standards Commission. Elspeth is the daughter of the writer Philip Morton Shand by his fourth wife, Sybil Mary Shand. As such, she is a half-aunt to Camilla, Carlo’s wife, whose father, Bruce Shand, was son of P. Morton Shand by a previous marriage. Elspeth Shand was educated at Wycombe Abbey and the LSE.

There was a Catholic priest who worked as a Chaplain to Cardiff University in the 1980s who had been tortured by either Galtieri or Pinochet’s regime, I’m not sure which. I was friends with a Cardiff medical student at the time who was involved with the Catholic Church and she used to tell me that she could not imagine how a priest could be such a wicked man. Clare never actually told me what it was that he was up to, but she really did not like him. Clare told me a lot about the wrongdoing at Cardiff University and in particular the Welsh National School of Medicine and in 1984, she came up to stay with Brown and me on Anglesey. I introduced her to Liz Stables, the Angel at the Student Health Centre at UCNW, because in those days I had no idea what Liz Stables, D.G.E. Wood and co were up to. Liz had a lovely chat with Clare and extracted lots of info. The last time that I saw Clare was when she was working as a house officer in Cardiff in 1987. She told me that things were very, very grim. I never heard from Clare again. She is now a consultant surgeon and the last I heard she was working in Herefordshire.
I have been told that the Gang made it clear to Clare that she had better stop listening to what I and others were telling her was going on in north Wales.
I imagine that the horrible priest in the Catholic Chaplaincy in Cardiff was concealing exactly the same sort of serious crime that Clare ended up concealing along with the rest of her colleagues.
Before Clare cut me off, she told me that all Cardiff students were being told by the older students and junior doctors not to take a job in north Wales under any circumstances…
The other people Who Were Known To Have Resisted the fascist regimes in Argentina and Chile were of course Top Doctors. It was a standing joke that in the late 1970s the liberal elite in London were employing Top Doctors from Argentina as cleaners. Some of those Top Docs-turned-cleaners gave interviews about how the regimes hated Doctors because Doctors Helped People. The regimes really did hate the Top Docs who stood up to them and many Top Docs did flee the country. But there were plenty of Top Docs who did exactly what Galtieri and Pinochet told them to. Top Docs tortured people to death particularly effectively because they had the knowledge to do that, they delivered the babies of opponents of the regimes – usually murdering the mother and father in the process or shortly afterwards – and they stole those babies and handed them over to ‘suitable parents’, who supported the regime which had murdered the birth parents and occasionally had been involved in the murder of their adopted baby’s parents themselves.
One Argentinian Top Doc who went to London to start a new life was Dame Julia Polak. Polak worked among the fraudsters and criminals at Royal Postgraduate Medical School/Hammersmith Hospital when I was doing my MSc there and I was told by the seriously pissed off wife of an honest member of staff that Polak was the worst of the lot. Dame Julia later made medical history herself by undergoing a heart-lung transplant, surviving longer than nearly anyone else who had undergone such a procedure had and then Discovered A Cure for her own condition! These miracles were carried out at Harefield in collaboration with Sir Magdi Yacoub. Please see post ‘I Don’t Believe It’ for the many holes in Julia and Magdi’s story and for the reasons why I think that it was all another massive research fraud.

|The Rocky Horror Picture Show|
Ah the doctors they were wonderful!
Your life in their hands!
When Clare Cheek was a student at Cardiff, the medical students were particularly entertained by Dr Roy Mottram, a big strapping physiology lecturer who was Cardiff’s celebrity transvestite. Roy Mottram featured in TV documentaries and in the press and the students would scream with laughter at the film footage of Dr Mottram going shopping in his dress. I didn’t have a problem with Dr Mottram being a transvestite at all, but I later found out that Dr Mottram was a leading light in the Beaumont Society, which as well as campaigning for tolerance of transvestites, was also involved with some very much more worrying people with links to Dafydd and the gang (see post ‘The Paedophiles’ Friends Of Cardiff North’).
Totally harmless and a matter of choice:
|Much More Worrying – The Rocky Horror Picture Show|
Rhodri’s wife Julie Morgan, Labour MP for Cardiff North, 1997-10 and AM for Cardiff North since 2011, is the former Assistant Director of Barnardo’s and a former social worker in Barry. Barnardo’s employees were involved in the paedophile gangs of the last thirty years, including Dafydd’s gang. A couple of days ago, the BBC reported that an investigation into historical abuse in Barry revealed that in the 1980s, children attended a sex party held on a boat at which police officers were present.
The police are explaining to the world that the historical investigations are difficult because the Victims won’t come forward because they’ve been involved in petty crime. Well some in north Wales were because they sold drugs for Dafydd’s gang, but the main reason why they won’t ‘come forward’ is that for years, they complained and complained and complained. The police shouted at them, swore at them, told them to get out of the station or they’d arrest them and if the victims still persisted, they were indeed arrested themselves. Many of the police officers who did that are still serving. The Top Docs and social workers who fitted the victims and witnesses up and who in some cases assaulted them are also still working, many in very senior positions. Why would any of the witnesses ever, ever co-operate with those bastards?
The man who phoned Dafydd pretending to be from the Spanish Embassy certainly had fun with Dafydd and on one occasion he entertained the Hergest Unit patients by ringing Dafydd up, told Dafydd to get ready for his arrival and to ‘answer the door wearing your baby doll nightie and nae panties’ (the caller was supposed to be a gay Scotsman who had the hots for Dafydd). It was me who subsequently received a visit from the police and I was told that if there was one more call to Dafydd I’d be arrested.
North Wales Police: It wasn’t me who made those calls and you knew it, although I did certainly enjoy them. However, may I suggest that the person who did make the calls, who provided much light relief for the victims of a man who was running a trafficking gang with whom you colluded every inch of the way, is given a Good Citizen Award of the sort that David Blunkett gave to the horrible old cow in Cwm-y-Glo who intimidated the local mental health patients, Dee Edwards. The Dee Edwards who was subsequently given an MBE for her charidee work. By which time one of her relatives had been banged up for raping a six year old girl, but we didn’t hear much about that and I was told by a Top Doctor and his lady wife to keep quiet about it.
When I was working at Bangor University, I was told about a Wimmin’s Labour Party event being held at Llandudno. It was organised by one Julie Morgan who had invited her Big Mate, Harriet Harman. The Harriet who’s dad was a Harley Street Top Doctor. See previous posts for the gen on Dr John Harman and his network, as well as for the gen on Harriet and her network…
Being utterly hopeless, Harriet couldn’t do the Gov’t jobs to which she was appointed, so she was given an adviser who did them for her – Ed Miliband. The Ed who’s Uncle Harry was a Top Doc at Guy’s and Tommy’s, working alongside the Top Docs there who were colluding with Dafydd and the gang.
This man studied at Tommy’s and worked as a Top Doc there alongside the notoriously mad and dangerous William Sargant, as well as those colluding with Dafydd and the gang in north Wales until he was elected to the Commons in 1966; he now clutters up the Lords and was a personal friend of some of the Top Docs facilitating the trafficking ring in north Wales:
Dr Death was Chancellor of Liverpool University, 1996-09. Do you happen to know any of the Top Docs at the Walton Centre by any chance Dr Death?
Hugh Lanning, whom Barry Reamsbottom tried to crowbar into the job as General Secretary of the PCS in preference to Mark Serwotka, was the Deputy General Secretary of the PCS until May 2013. Lanning has been the Chairman of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign since 2009, and in 2013 was named a Vice Chair of the group Unite Against Fascism (UAF).
In 2015, Hugh stood as the Labour candidate for the Canterbury and Whitstable constituency, in Kent.
Lanning has played a major role in persuading trade unions in Britain to declare solidarity with the Palestinians and to support the BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions) movement. During his tenure at PCS, Lanning was active in the effort to keep people he considered ‘fascists’ or ‘racists’ out of the union and out of union workplaces. Lanning has given speeches at many labour and anti-racism rallies and has been a frequent contributor to the ‘Morning Star’.
Lanning spoke at an April 2006 “rally against racism and fascism” in Trafalgar Square organized by the National Assembly against Racism. At Voices for Lebanon and Palestine rally in Trafalgar Square in July 2006, organized by PSC with the help of CND, Stop the War Coalition, British Muslim Initiative, Lebanese Muslin League, Lebanese Welfare Community and Friends of Al-Aqsa, Lanning spoke alongside actor Corin Redgrave and others, saying that ‘the British trade union movement has a good record on many international issues, but not on Palestine.’
Corin Redgrave was a lifelong activist in leftist politics. With his elder sister Vanessa, he was a prominent member of the Workers’ Revolutionary Party (WRP). After the collapse of the WRP, Corin was involved with the Marxist Party, which the two siblings founded. Although I’m not sure which was the Judean Peoples’ Front and which was the Peoples’ Front of Judea.
Lanning spoke at an evening event sponsored by the SWP-led Love Music Hate Racism and Unite Against Fascism at the Trades Union Congress in Brighton on 9 September 2007. At the PCS annual conference in May 2008, ‘an executive motion demanding justice for Palestine won overwhelming support,’ reported the ‘Morning Star’. Lanning stated that ‘There is no free Palestine – it doesn’t exist. The occupation is all there is and it is up to us to help a free Palestine become a reality.’ He rejected arguments that Israel was at war. ‘Israel will not gain security without peace, certainly not by building walls, and there is only one way that Israel will have peace and that’s with a free and independent Palestine.’
Lanning told attendees of the Progressive London conference in February 2010 that the “seismic” change that had resulted in widespread trade-union support for the Palestinian cause must be expanded into a mass movement.
Lanning went to Liverpool in May 2010 to address workers who were striking to protest changes in public-sector pensions.
In May 2010, at the annual Nakba rally outside 10 Downing Street, organized by Palestinian Solidarity Campaign, Stop the War Campaign, CND and the British Muslim Initiative, Lanning said: “We want to hold this new government to account on international law and we want the Lib Dems to fulfil the pledges they made to us before the election on fighting for the human rights of Palestinians.”
At the time, the demands for a new investigation into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal were becoming louder and louder. Hugh Lanning and the other dogs that didn’t bark didn’t hear them.
Lanning addressed anti-Government protesters in York in February 2011 as part of a local campaign against budget cuts. During a U.S. visit in 2011, Lanning was the keynote speaker at the ninth annual convention of Al-Awda, an organization allegedly linked to pro-terrorist groups. His speech was entitled “The Role of Trade Unions and Solidarity Campaigns in the Struggle for the Liberation of Palestine.”
Meanwhile, in north Wales – you get the picture…
Hugh Lanning spoke at the annual rally outside 10 Downing Street in May 2011, telling the audience that “The Arab Spring brings us hope but also means real challenge to ensure UK government changes its policy. We must keep the pressure up until there is a free and independent Palestine.”
At a conference in June 2011, Lanning called for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian problem. In an October 2011 article for the Morning Star, Hugh Lanning promoted the forthcoming Celebrate Diversity, Defence Multiculturalism conference, praised British diversity, deplored “the growth of Islamophobia,” and explained that PCS “sees its role to defend [the] anti-fascist tradition by teaming up with others in the trade union movement to voice the alternatives to the rise of the extreme right.” PCS was campaigning, he explained, “to have fascists banned from the Civil Service’, but not criminals who had colluded with a paedophile gang who murdered witnesses.
On 15 October 2011, Lanning spoke at the Unite Against Fascism-sponsored One Society Many Cultures national convention, a “one-day national convention bringing together a broad alliance celebrating diversity, rejecting Islamophobia and fascism.” An October 2011 article by Lanning in the Morning Star described the British media coverage of the Israel-Palestinian conflict as unbalanced. “Solidarity with Palestine,” Lanning wrote, “is born and bred on anti-racist principles, of distaste for a people being oppressed by virtue of their race, of the dishonour that is done to those who hold dear the values of their religions.”
On 29 October 2011, Jimmy Savile turned his toes up. His body lay in state in the Queen’s Hotel Leeds and he then had a lovely funeral. Crowds lined the street a la Princess Di. Everyone was reminded of what a lovely old boy he was and how much work he did for charidee. My friends and I were busy phoning each other, delighted that the man whom we knew was a sex offender had snuffed it at last.
‘We didn’t know’.
I was told by two different medical researchers in 1988 that Savile was a child molester. I was told in 1989 by the relative of someone who worked in Stoke Mandeville that everyone hated Savile, he was a ‘twat’. I was told in 2000 by a former NHS Angel who had worked in Wales that millions of the pounds raised by Savile for Stoke Mandeville had, at Savile’s insistence, been spent on The Jimmy Savile Dining Room. This person also told me that Savile was loathed by staff at Stoke Mandeville.
I knew that in the 1980s and 90s, Dafydd used to hold ‘clinics’ at the Queen’s Hotel in Leeds. I have never been to the Queen’s Hotel in Leeds but I’m wondering what sort of hotel is used to display the corpses of sex offenders and doubles up as a ‘clinic’ held by Dafydd.
Dafydd was famed for his ‘sex therapy’ clinics. ‘Dr DA’ – as he demanded to be called and demanded that I should call him that as well (can readers guess what my response was?) – held clinics across the UK. His usual mode of transport was his much boasted about Mercedes or his gold coloured Range Rover (Savile probably went one better with that pink Rolls Royce that he bored everybody with), but at one point Dafydd had himself transferred between clinics by helicopter. Not his NHS clinics of course. Dafydd didn’t usually bother to show up for those.
‘I’m a Private Patient of Dr DA’s, I’m here for my appointment.’
‘Oh, the clinic’s through here, do come in.’
In a January 2012 op-ed, Lanning accused the Israeli Supreme Court of racism after it upheld a law denying Israeli citizenship spouses of Israeli citizens who are Palestinians from the West Bank or Gaza Strip or from designated “enemy states.” As a result, Hugh Lanning identified two firms, Ahava and Veolia, to be boycotted.
Lanning spoke at the Unite Against Fascism Conference on 28 February 2012. “If history has taught us anything, it’s never to turn our back on the threat posed by fascism,” Lanning told Labour Research in April 2012. “Trade unionists must never de-prioritise the anti-fascist struggle… There is never a time for trade unionists to be silent, or lower their voices on this issue.”
On 12 May 2012, Lanning addressed about 500 demonstrators who had gathered outside 10 Downing Street to commemorate the anniversary of the Nakba. Lanning, who said he had just returned from Palestine, said that “every day in Palestine is Nakba Day. The Palestinians are being encircled, imprisoned, colonised, driven off their land.” He accused Israel of “arresting people with no charge, no trial and no justice” and said that “If this was happening anywhere else on this planet it would be on the front page of every newspaper and on the daily news night after night. But it is being ignored because it is happening to the Palestinians.”
Lanning was a speaker in September 2012 at the Love Music Hate Racism 10th Anniversary Event.
Lanning addressed meetings held at the Labour Party conference in Manchester in October 2012 by Palestinian Solidarity Campaign and Unite Against Fascism.
After the British Gov’t sought “to cut the amount of time civil servants can spend on union activity,” Lanning said in a letter to the Cabinet Office it was “unacceptable” that civil servants and their union representatives should be “left to learn of their employer’s decision, which has personal implications for some of them, through national newspapers and statements at the Conservative party conference.” He described the policy shift as “a political attack on the democratic processes of trade unions” and warned that “this is going to fundamentally rupture industrial relations in the civil service….We will be asking Acas to intervene on this issue as well as challenging your decisions in the courts….The independence of the civil service from political pressure and interference in its role as an employer is a dangerous line to cross.’”
It must have been in 2010 that a law graduate from Bangor University made a claim against The Management Centre, a private company owned by Bangor University, for disability discrimination, when he was working at The Management Centre. He was an epileptic and he went into work one day, was told that his colleagues want to show him something, so he went into a room as invited and was treated to a video playing footage of someone having a grand mal seizure, while his colleagues screamed with laughter and said ‘that’s you that is’. He raised a complaint with Lyn Meadows, the HR Director of Bangor University. Meadows tried to cuddle him and told him that there was no harm done. This man, a former soldier, walked out of the room and took advice from elsewhere. He was advised to contact Acas, which he did. Lyn Meadows rang him up at home, in the evening, having accessed his file with personal details and told him that he was not to speak about this case to anyone. He laughed and hung up. Not long afterwards, he was offered a job as a lecturer in law at Bangor University in return for dropping his case. The person who made this offer was Aled Griffiths, aka the Buffet Slayer, who’s sister Gwenan Carrington was the Director of Gwynedd Social Services, who’s wife Joanna was Director of Conwy Social Services and who’s brother Huw was a hopelessly incompetent solicitor who in the 1980s and 90s had sat in the courts of north Wales and watched as I and other targets of the gang were fitted up. See previous posts for more info on the Buffet Slayer and his Mafia. The law graduate refused to engage with the Slayer regarding this bribery attempt.
Within a few days of this generous offer, I was in The Management Centre when I stumbled upon a little conference consisting of Lyn Meadows, the Slayer and Professor Colyn Gardner, the manager of The Management Centre. By that time The Management Centre was known to be deeply in debt and there had been many informal complaints about the work-place bullying there. Colyn subsequently departed after rumours of a stand-up row between him and the newly appointed VC, Professor John Hughes. See previous posts for more Colyn laffs and his previous before he ever got near Bangor.
Acas subsequently advised the law graduate to accept the (low) compensation offered, on the grounds that although they accepted that a great of unacceptable behaviour had occurred, they ‘knew’ that the witnesses to the events at The Management Centre were going to lie on oath because ‘they are frightened of Lyn Meadows and Colyn’.
Dafydd Wigley at the time was on the Board of The Management Centre. Elfed Roberts, the former North Wales Police senior officer who was kicked out of the police for corruption by Chief Constable Richard Brunstrom when Mr Brunstrom arrived and tried to clean up that endemically corrupt force, was one of those involved with The Management Centre. Elfed was subsequently appointed as Chair of the North West Wales NHS Trust and he thus automatically was given a seat on the Council of Bangor University. While in those roles, Elfed had me arrested three times. On one occasion for having pink hair and calling his car a penismobile; on another for ‘making hoax calls’ when I had rung an ambulance in an emergency; and on another for sending ‘reams and reams’ of e mails to the Trust. I was trying to pursue my very serious complaints which were simply being ignored. When the Health Minister Edwina Hart finally dissolved the North West Wales NHS Trust because even the Welsh Gov’t could stomach the scandal and embarrassment no longer, Elfed was appointed to the Board of the Welsh Ambulance Trust, although I and other witnesses had given Edwina enough documentary evidence for Elfed himself to have been arrested. Elfed remained on the University Council and was appointed Chair of the Fair Practice Committee.
Many moons ago, Elfed was the Sgt at Llangefni Police Station and was known to be corrupt then. Dafydd lives about three miles outside of Llangefni and was mates with them all in that station.
Lyn Meadows previously worked as a senior manager for the Welsh Ambulance Trust and had served on the Board of an NHS Trust on the Wirral, during which time she was named in Hansard and on Frank Field’s blog as having colluded with three Top Doctors who defrauded the Trust. There were no prosecutions. See previous posts.
Lyn Meadow subsequently became a member of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board.
The law graduate who became embroiled in all this was a friend of mine, was known to be a friend of mine and had been for quite some time. He knew what had happened to me at the hands of Dafydd et al.
Now here’s a strange thing. After my friend walked out of the job at the Management Centre, he was a few weeks later offered a job as an employment lawyer in a firm in Menai Bridge, which certainly gave us a good laugh. He never discussed his case against the Management Centre with his employers. Shortly after Acas advised him to settle, he was made redundant from the company in Menai Bridge. He was the only lawyer who was made redundant.
The Buffet Slayer grew up on Anglesey – his father was a Minister of religion there – and lives in the next village along from Menai Bridge.
Once Lyn Meadows was appointed as HR Director at Bangor University, there was a whole spate of cases of work-place bullying and unfair dismissals of the more junior staff, cases which People’s Champ Eileen Tilley failed to take up. But then Tilley was friends with Meadows and I was told that a deal had been done between them, in the efforts for Tilley to achieve her aspiration of bagging a seat on the National Executive of UCU.
The law graduate who worked in The Management Centre was not the only person whom I had been friendly with who was unfairly dismissed by Meadows. When I was doing my PhD I shared an open plan office with a number of other people, many of whom knew what was happening to me at the hands of the paedophile gang and their friends, because it was all becoming very, very public. People close to me – like the law graduate and some of those in our office – saw some of the highly incriminating documents which my lawyers had by then begun to obtain. They were well aware of just how serious the wrongdoing was. One of those who knew what had gone on and what was continuing to go on was running a project that wasn’t an academic one, but was funded by Gwynedd County Council and was aimed at promoting entrepreneurship in Gwynedd. Unlike many who bang on about ‘entrepreneurship’, this young woman came from a business family herself, helped run the business and knew how to develop and sustain a successful business. Gwynedd County Council claimed to be desperate to promote SME business development. My colleague’s project was really, really successful. Even Gwynedd County Council had to admit that it was really successful.
Previous posts have described how my PhD supervisor and his wife, who was also an academic at Bangor, were both forced out of their jobs as a Punishment Beating by Professor Fergus Lowe, after my PhD supervisor accepted me as a student. My supervisor received the standard poisonous call from someone in the mental health services – I don’t know who – and was told that he had just accepted a Dangerous Nutter as a postgrad. He took the view that this was an outrageous thing for someone to be doing and refused to engage with the caller. He didn’t tell me about this until after I’d finished my PhD. What that caller didn’t know is that my supervisor and his wife had previously supported other people whom the gang had targeted and knew how some of the gang conducted themselves.
Fungus, in collaboration with Prof Lew Hardy, Professor Colin Baker (who’s wife worked at Ysbyty Gwynedd) and Professor Tom Corns (who’s wife had recently retired as a social worker from Conwy Social Services and who’s son was a Top Doctor) worked long and hard to force my supervisor and his wife out of their jobs. Eventually they could bear the constant harassment no more and they took early retirement. My supervisor was then offered a job at Oxford and his wife took up a job as an Educational Consultant for the Trinidadian Gov’t. Which entertained other victims of Fungus and Corns. The Curse Of Tom Corns – anyone who suffers from the Curse will find that riches and success will come their way…
My supervisor had not only read some of my incriminating documents, but he made a witness statement regarding the gang and their associates, as at a later date did his wife.
When my PhD supervisor retired from Bangor, as far as he could he arranged follow up positions for everyone. However there was a period of a few weeks before people had relocated, when they were all still sharing the old office, but our boss was no longer there. It was during this time that John McTernan’s brother-in-law, who had recently left his job at Bangor University, turned up at the office and stole my computer. The young woman who was running the entrepreneurship project was alone in the office at the time and witnessed him removing it. She challenged him and he told her that our former supervisor had given him permission do this. She didn’t believe him, so after he had left with the haul, she rang the university authorities and reported the matter.
My computer was recovered, although James Dawson, the thieving relative of Blair’s right hand man, was not prosecuted. Instead, the Head of the School of Education, Janet Pritchard, told the world that my supervisor had put Dawson up to this theft and that he had given James Dawson the code to the building’s lock. No he hadn’t. The code had never been changed, because Janet et al made it quite clear that they were glad to see the back of John and his wife and we could all just fuck off out of it. No-one sorted the office out, no-one even went over there. It was just left open to all comers. The young woman who was running the entrepreneurship project had been receiving more and grief from those at Gwynedd County Council who were ‘supporting’ it and was left in tears by their conduct on a number of occasions. Gwynedd then told the University that they were terminating the funding for the project.
Because my former colleague had by now been employed by the University for a certain length of time, they were legally not allowed to terminate her contract, although Lyn Meadows did try that. The young woman’s father’s lawyer briefed her as to her rights – there wasn’t any point her consulting Tilley and UCU – and the University admitted that they had an obligation to continue to employ her. She was rehoused in another part of the School of Education in an inhospitable inappropriate office, alone. No-one ever went in to see her or even discussed her work with her. A few months later she became pregnant. Janet Pritchard actually responded to the news with ‘oh God, we’ll have to pay you maternity leave now’. Within weeks, my former colleague’s contract had been terminated. She subsequently sued the University for unfair dismissal and won.
After Gwynedd County Council terminated the funding for the entrepreneurship project, Iwan Trefor Jones, the senior member of Gwynedd staff responsible for overseeing the work, was at the centre of a scandal in which he had, in his capacity as a Gwynedd CC employee, handed a cheque for £20k over to a business which collapsed weeks later. Iwan Trefor was a mate of the businessmen concerned and no-one was able to explain where the money had gone. Iwan Trefor simply subsequently rose ever higher with Gwynedd CC (see post ‘Sleeping With The Fishes’).
The other person responsible with Iwan Trevor for overseeing the entrepreneurship project was a man called Dewi, who ran the Post Office and shop in Penrhyndeudraeth. Some months later Dewi was arrested for embezzling thousands from the PO. He went to prison.
My former colleague’s project was called ‘Get On In Gwynedd’. Well if you’re a member of, or an accessory to, a paedophile gang or a thief or a conman, your prospects are great.
Anyone now like to make a public apology to Drs John and Della Fazey, for the mountain of crap that was thrown at them for daring to support me? Or the other people who were sacked from their jobs because they had sight of my documents and unlike so many others, didn’t thrash out a comfortable deal with the paedophiles’ friends in return for their silence?
So what happened to the career of James Dawson, John McTernan’s brother-in-law, who made off with my computer? Well Dawson certainly fell on his feet. After leaving Bangor under a very big cloud indeed, BEFORE he nicked my computer that was – I was told that the cloud involved a serious complaint about James by a female student – James was appointed to the senior management team of Glyndwr University, an institution peopled by even more paedophiles’ friends than Bangor University (see post ‘A Vampire At Glyndwr University!’). James had never been a senior manager of anything before and had spent quite a long time doing nothing very much after that business with my computer, so exactly why he was deemed suitable for a job helping to run Glyndwr University I do not know.
Regarding Gwynedd County Council wrecking people’s careers, one didn’t have to work for or be funded by Gwynedd County Council for that to happen. There is a farmer in the Ogwen Valley who some years ago was mercilessly harassed by a the combined forces of Gwynedd County Council and the Snowdonia National Park until he virtually lost his business. He is a local man who grew up in Bethesda and from what I saw, his life bore all the signs of someone under serious attack by the paedophiles’ friends. I don’t know what he did to piss them off though. How did I get to know him? He is a friend of my former PhD supervisor and his wife, who also farm in the Ogwen Valley.
‘We’re the paedophiles’ friends and you can’t get us’.
While Lyn Meadows and Fungus ran riot at Bangor University, Eileen Tilley revelled when the THES listed Bangor as being one of the worst universities in the UK for workplace bullying. Tilley had a truly wonderful time telling everyone that it said all that needed to be said about the VC. While there was a bullying problem at Bangor, it was concentrated very obviously in only a few Depts: Psychology; Healthcare Sciences; Education; The Business School; Theology.
What did these Depts have in common? They all hosted a heavy load of paedophiles’ friends. Not only did Tilley and UCU collude with what was happening, but Tilley knew as well as I did that the problem could not have been anything to do with the VC. Because the cases which were used to identify Bangor as a ‘bullying university’ were collected when the VC had taken an extended period of compassionate leave, while his wife was seriously ill and then died. At the hands of the paedophile gang’s associates at the Walton Centre in Liverpool. It was Fungus who was running the University throughout the outrages, not the VC. It was also Fungus who appointed Lyn Meadows, the toxic cow of a former NHS senior manager and Fungus knew exactly what he was going to get when he did that. He got what he and Eileen Tilley wanted – a paedophiles’ friend of the highest order who was going to cause chaos and blame it all on everyone else. Particularly the VC who had dared challenge a fucking paedophile gang, for which his wife paid with her life.
Perhaps this man would like to tell us all why his adviser’s brother-in-law made off with a PhD student’s ancient, third-hand computer, worth about 50p, in 2005:
|A Pretty Straight Kind Of Guy|
Hugh Lanning spoke at an anti-EDL event in Walthamstow in October 2012 that was organized by the groups We Are Waltham Forest and Unite Against Fascism and attended by more than 1,000 people. Lanning said: “The EDL wanted to come to Walthamstow to intimidate Muslim and other communities including trade unionists. They have been given a resounding no. Let’s celebrate this victory together and united.”
By 2012, Operation Pallial re-opened the investigation into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal. Tony Francis killed himself. I was threatened with a gun, after another witness was threatened with a gun and I fled north Wales, for the first time, although I did return to live there again.
Hugh Lanning insisted in a 2013 speech that “Israel is ALWAYS the aggressor” and that Israel had banned 180 life saving medicines from Gazan hospitals “because they might save lives.” In the same speech he announced a Palestinian Solidarity Campaign conference on 13 April that would involve “an open dialogue with the people of Gaza and their leaders” – in other words, Hamas.
Lanning spoke at a March 2013 conference in London held by the Morning Star, “to discuss the crisis of political representation in parliament” and consider the possibility of forming a new working-class party. The Morning Star reported on 14 April 2013 that Lanning had told a conference on the previous Saturday “that activists must urge the government to end Israel’s ability to breach international law with ‘impunity.” Lanning was quoted as saying that “The policy of governments including our own not to talk to the legitimate representatives of Palestinians is wrong and short sighted.”
Lanning resigned from his position with the PCS in May 2013.
Lanning met with senior BBC executives in June 2013 to discuss BBC coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which Lanning felt was too Israel-friendly. The Israeli National News reported that the BBC had “come under fire” for having held “consultations” with Lanning, who was identified as “a senior member of…an anti-Israel group which openly supports Hamas, Hezbullah and other extremist organisations.”
Should I have demanded a meeting with BBC executives to discuss their lack of coverage of the crimes of Dafydd or indeed until he was dead and buried, Jimmy Savile?
I haven’t ever demanded a meeting with BBC executives, but being the Mary Whitehouse that I am, I have raised concerns with the BBC on a few occasions. I was one of many who complained about the appalling interview in April 1991 during which the stupid old git Terry Wogan baited David Icke, because Wogan obviously thought that David Icke was psychotic. Did Wogan ever insult the assortment of offensive old idiots, some of whom were later revealed to be sex offenders, with whom he appeared on TV? Of course not. Wogan went for David Icke’s jugular and continued writing his Torygraph column.
When Wogan had a go at David Icke in 1991, stressing to him that everyone thought that he was nuts and were laughing at him, the second attempt by Tony and Sadie Francis to have me imprisoned for being a Dangerous Nutter had just failed. A number of the things that Wogan said to David Icke on TV were word for word some of those that Dafydd and members of the gang had yelled at me not so long before. Previous posts have detailed just some of Dafydd’s many connections to the BBC.
For many years, Jimmy Savile took part in ‘Children In Need’, until Sir Roger Jones, the then BBC Governor for Wales banned him, because Sir Roger found Savile’s conduct so ‘creepy’.
So what was wrong with the rest of them at the BBC?
‘We didn’t know.’
Esther knew about Dafydd because in 1988 I wrote and told her what he was doing.
Years later I raised my concerns with the BBC over a drama which gave a highly inaccurate and misleading picture of ‘mental health care’ for young women – they were ‘disturbed girls’ who were in a Denbigh-like institution but it was in really good condition with nice furniture and lovely gardens, long after all the asylums had closed down and the girls were being tended to by intelligent and caring psychoanalysts, all on the NHS. There was a serial killer on the loose in the local area and of course everyone knew it was one of those girls wot dun it. I wrote to BBC Wales and listed the numerous factual errors in the drama – I don’t know who their medical consultant was but they obviously weren’t very competent – and also explained that the NHS does not provide such facilities for such patients, anywhere in the UK. I received an arsey letter from a Karl Davies, who failed to answer any of my points.
I later found out that Karl Davies was a Plaid activist and had stood for Plaid unsuccessfully in one General Election for a north Wales constituency . In 2001, Karl Davies was Plaid’s Chief Executive.
Being involved with Plaid in north Wales, Karl will have known about Dafydd’s gang and all those folk in Plaid who colluded with them. In 2014, Karl Davies appeared on a website entitled ‘All About Trans’, after Karl had ‘had coffee with a group of trans volunteers’.
How about a coffee morning with the theme ‘All About The Paedophiles’ then Karl?
Here’s Karl, looking dapper:
My other letter to the BBC was challenging their decision to broadcast a party political broadcast on behalf of the BNP. I can accept that the BNP, as a party fielding candidates, have the right to a party political broadcast along with the other parties; my point was that the BNP should not have been allowed to tell lies about immigrants in their broadcast. Karl wrote back effectively telling me to piss off, we’re the BBC and we can do what we want.
‘We’re the paedophiles’ friends and you can’t get us.’
Hugh Lanning was a speaker at Unite Against Fascism’s national conference in March 2013. Andrew Gilligan, in a June 2013 article in the Torygraph, noted Lanning’s position with Unite Against Fascism and recounted that UAF members had climbed on London’s main war memorial, “squashing…flowers that mourners had placed there, then trying to remove half of them altogether and ‘jeering’ other visitors as they paid their respects.”
In March 2017, days after the Knesset passed Amendment No. 27 to the Entry Into Israel Law, which allowed known supporters of the BDS movement to be banned from entering Israel, Hugh Lanning became the first British national to be refused entry to Israel under this law. After landing at Ben Gurion Airport, Lanning was detained and refused entry. He claimed he was interrogated for eight hours. He was subsequently put on a flight back to the UK and informed that he would need to apply for permission to enter Israel in the future.
If Hugh Lanning is this vexed about the activities of Israel, one wonders why he has not maxed out on Professor Stuart Stanton, who worked at St George’s Hospital Medical School alongside Professor Oliver Brooke and all the staff there who were colluding and concealing organised child abuse. Stanton is a visiting Professor at Hadassah Hospital (Jerusalem) where he travels every three months to lecture, see patients and operate. He is a founder member of the South London Israel Forum (SLIF) which meets monthly to hear speakers on Middle East politics and Israel’s achievements in the Arts and Sciences, is also a Trustee for Hadassah UK and a Patron of the British Friends of Hebrew University.
Stanton also appears on the website of the Jewish Medical Association UK. The section entitled ‘Israeli Medical Students’ tells us about the 2011 Israeli Student Attachment programme and that ‘the past four weeks have been incredible. Dr. Alan Naftalin welcomed us with a lovely dinner at his house and took care of all our needs during our stay. In addition, he made sure we learn a lot about medicine and the way it is practised in the UK by arranging meetings with well experienced doctors such as Prof. David Katz, Prof. Stuart Stanton and Dr. Mike Peters of the BMA.’
See post ‘The Cry Of The Lunatic’ for more information on Stuart Stanton.
Surely this is an open goal for Hugh Lanning, particularly as Stanton was in some of the same societies as Greville Janner…
Lanning and Richard Norton-Taylor wrote a 1992 book, ‘A Conflict of Loyalties: GCHQ 1984-1991’, about 14 employees of the UK Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) who refused to obey a new directive requiring that they resign from their unions. In a review for ‘The Guardian’, Lord Wedderburn called it “a valuable source for those who seek to understand the place of the GCHQ victimisations in the general and continuing assault upon trade union rights in Britain.”
It was GCHQ who listened to our phone calls for years as Dafydd and the gang ran their crime empire and tried to kill us. The security services had Tp Docs surgeries, hospitals, universities etc wired as well. GCHQ heard the lot. No wonder that these unions exerted so much elbow power.
There were of course two high profile cases in the 1980s of civil servants leaking information on the grounds that they had a higher duty to the employers, the Gov’t – the cases of Sarah Tisdall and Clive Ponting. Sarah Tisdall leaked documents in 1983 regarding the date that American cruise missiles would be arriving in Britain. The Editor of ‘The Guardian’, Peter Preston, didn’t fancy going to prison himself, so he fessed up to the authorities as to the source of the leak and Sarah went to prison instead. In July 1984, Clive Ponting leaked documents concerning the sinking of the Belgrano. He stood trial and was acquitted, which came as a surprise to all, he and everyone else expected him to be imprisoned. See previous posts for details of the Tisdall and Ponting cases.
Sarah and Clive did take on a Gov’t that they knew to be corrupt, but neither they, nor anyone else, leaked anything about the very serious crime which was associated with the gangs supplying the Westminster Paedophile Ring. The only dog who did bark was the Tory MP Geoffrey Dickens, who was faced with universal ridicule and hostility.
Sheldon was educated at West Leeds High School. So John Sheldon was someone else who grew up in the location of Savile and his gang.
John Sheldon presided over a period of successive public sector trade union mergers during the 1980s and 1990s.
John Sheldon was elected General Secretary of the CSU in 1982, following service as Deputy General Secretary. During this time Sheldon and the CSU were amongst those active in opposing Thatch’s Gov’ts ban on trade union membership at GCHQ and the subsequent legal challenge in 1984. All those non-barking dogs listening to Dafydd et al…
Sheldon described the government’s £1000 tax compensation for GCHQ workers as “Judas Money”.
The corrupt civil servants who were colluding with Dafydd and associated gangs will have benefited by far more than £1000. When Thatcher’s Gov’t paid the ‘Judas Money’ to the GCHQ workers who left their union, it was argued at the time that all Thatch had done was cream off the civil servants who were capable of being corrupted and for quite modest sums as well, but it is clear that those who stayed in the unions and colluded with the Top Doctors over the following years were corrupt as well.
In 1988 John Sheldon oversaw the subsequent merger with the Society of Civil and Public Servants to form the NUCPS and served as its General Secretary from 1993. When NUCPS merged with the IRSF (Inland Revenue Staff Federation) in 1996 to form the PTC, Sheldon continued as Joint General Secretary along with the IRSF’s Clive Brooke.
The IRSF, in an earlier incarnation, was the National Association of the Taxes Assessing and Collecting Services and the Valuation Office Clerical Association. The future PM Jim Callaghan was its Assistant Secretary from 1936 until World War II.
Clive Brooke, as the man who led the union which in its former days had employed the man who, along with so many others, was concealing the mound of crap which was organised abuse by people in high as well as low places, will have wielded a great deal of political muscle. George Thomas didn’t die until Sept 1997, Callaghan didn’t die until March 2005 and there will have been a great deal at stake.
The Westminster Paedophile Ring of course involved a number of civil servants, some of them in very senior positions.
Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe:
Brooke was educated in Thornes House School, Wakefield. From 1964 to 1982, He was Assistant Secretary of the IRSF, 1964-82 – through the duration of Sunny Jim’s premiership; Deputy General Secretary, 1982-88; and General Secretary, 1988-95. In 1996 Brooke became Joint General Secretary of PTC and held this post until 1998. He was member of the General Council of the TUC, 1989-96 and between 1993 and 1996, he was a member of the TUC Executive Committee. Brooke is a member of the PCS, the successor to the civil service union that he led.
Clive became Lord Brooke in August 1997. One month before George Thomas died and after Ronnie Waterhouse had spent a few months listening to former residents of children’s homes in north Wales describe how they were beaten, raped, starved and forced to work in local businesses for no pay. For people like whoever used to run the fish gutting business down near the harbour at Bangor, who enjoyed the free labour of the teenagers from the Ty Newydd children’s home in Bangor, teenagers who told two people known to me that their social workers would beat them up if they refused to do the job. Ty Newydd was the children’s home in which Alison Taylor worked when she first made allegations that children were being abused. Alison of course was trashed by Nefyn Dodd, the manager of Ty’r Felin children’s home in Bangor and the man then made responsible for the oversight of all the other Gwynedd Social Services children’s homes.
Nefyn Dodd used to boast to third parties was a good mate of Dafydd’s.
What happened to one of the people who found out what was happening to the boys in Ty Newydd? After he confronted the social workers – and told people that he could not believe that they were social workers, they were just thugs – he told quite a number of people what was happening to the boys. He was subsequently visited by the Drug Squad, fitted up for the possession of class A drugs which were planted on him and his wife, arrested, punched in the face by a senior officer at the police station, held in Risley Remand Centre on further trumped up charges, unlawfully transferred to the North Wales Hospital to the care of Dafydd, where he was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia and detained there, again unlawfully, for a year. Some years later he became involved with a woman who’s family – unbeknown to him – had links to the gang. He had a baby with her and days after the baby was born was ejected from the family by his partner, assisted by her family. Gwynedd Social Services deemed him to be a risk to his child and he was prevented from ever having access to the child. The child grew up in his mother’s family, which included two sex offenders against children.
The whole of Bethesda knew the details of this and it was openly discussed. Someone who had witnessed it all at close hand was killed by a lorry just before the Waterhouse Inquiry began.
Now then Dafydd, when McDuff arrives – he wants you to answer the door, wearing your baby doll nightie and nae panties…
As your caller noted Dafydd you murdering old bastard, ‘now Dafydd knows what it’s like to be sexually harassed’.
Dafydd does not however know what it is liked to be repeatedly sexually assaulted in his early teens, sold for sex to a variety of celebs/politicians/civil servants and others, end up being murdered by the gang who did this and then have his body strung up, to enable a transparently untruthful verdict of ‘suicide by hanging’ to be returned by the corrupt coroner.
Where else but in Gwynedd could a man who ran a paedophile gang for decades demand that someone who heard one of his victims taking the piss out of him be arrested?
The British Hotel also got themselves a bargain when an Empowered Service User with learning disabilities was forced to wash up the dishes for 30p/hour by her social workers.
Clive Brooke sits on the Labour benches. In 1997, as well as bagging a peerage, he became a Trustee of the IPPR, the ‘think-tank’ established by the Windbag which serves as a job creation scheme for the offspring of New Labour big wigs. Brooke has been a Trustee and Council member of Community Service Volunteers (CSV) and is a Trustee of Action on Addiction. Clive Brooke served as a non-executive director of NATS (formerly National Air Traffic Services), 2001-06.
I have only ever known one person who worked for Air Traffic Control and that was Michael Grunwell, a student at Bangor who was friends with my friends in Bangor Bird Group. Michael Grunwell was a wildly enthusiastic twitcher and got a job in Air Traffic Control solely because one of the perks was very cheap air travel, which meant that he could get to exotic locations to go twitching. Michael was friends with Anne whom the gang murdered as well as the people whom I have now been told did deals to keep quiet about what was happening to bag jobs and other goodies. Michael Grunwell has an internet presence, he seems to be living in Shanghai now and has put up many of his birding photos online.
Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe has been married to Lorna Hopkin Roberts since 1967.
From 1944 to 1948, Christopher served in the RAF and from 1948 to 1957, he worked for the Inland Revenue, leaving to work full-time for the Inland Revenue Staff Federation.
In 1981, Christopher became Director of the TU Fund Managers LTD and in 1983 he was appointed Chairman. In 1983, he was also elected auditor of the International Confederation of Free Trade Unions and in 1988, Christopher began working as an Industrial and Public Affairs Consultant.
Christopher worked for paedophiles’ friends NACRO (see previous posts), 1956-98; he was a member of Council from 1956 and from 1973 was Chairman. He was member of the TUC General Council, 1976-89 and its Chairman in 1988-89. Christopher was Director of the Civil Service Building Society, 1958-87 and Chairman, 1978-87. Lord Christopher was a member of the Inner London Probation and After-care Committee, 1966-79, of the Tax Reform Committee, 1974-80 and of the Royal Commission on Distribution of Income and Wealth, 1978-79. Christopher was also member of the IBA, 1978-83, of the Council of the Institute of Manpower Studies, 1984-89 and of the ESRC, 1985-88.
Brown was applying for funding from the ESRC during those years, years when Dafydd and the gang were illegally arresting and detaining me, attempting to frame me for serious crime etc. It was known that Thatcher’s Gov’t had ordered the ESRC to severely constrain funding for social science research and instead divert the funding into economic projects which would demonstrate the superiority of monetarism. Lord Christopher would have been happy to oblige.
Between 1983 and 1986, Christopher was Chairman of the Tyre Industry Economic Development Council and between 1985 and 1990 he was Vice-President of the Building Societies Association. In 1987 and 1988, Tony Christopher was Director of the Birmingham Midshires Building Society. Then Christopher really arrived – he was a member of the GMC, 1989-94, when they failed to take action against Dafydd et al during those years of Peak Paedophilia, Savile running Broadmoor etc. Christopher was a member of the Audit Commission, 1989-95 and of the Broadcasting Complaints Commission, 1989-97.
Lord Christopher was a Trustee of the Commonwealth Trades Union Council Charitable Trust, 1985 -89 and of the Save the Children Fund, 1985-90. He was on board with the Windbag’s baby, the IPPR, for which he was a Trustee, 1989 -94 and Treasurer, 1990-94. Since 1981, Christopher was also appointed a Trustee of the Trades Union Trust Charitable Trust in 1981 and of the Douglas Houghton Memorial Trust in 1998. Douglas Houghton did many a favour for Dafydd and his criminal associates himself (see previous posts).
Tony Christopher was appointed a Fellow of the RSA in 1989, which has provided a home for many a paedophiles’ friend. On 30 July 1998, after Ronnie Waterhouse had heard the witness accounts of what the gangsters whom Lord Christopher had spent decades colluding with had done to kids in north Wales and then denounced them all as lying gits in pursuit of money – not like Ronnie and Tony Christopher! – Christopher was created a life peer. He took the Labour whip. Bless.
John Sheldon served on the General Council of the TUC, 1992-98. Which spanned the years of the investigations into the abuse of kids in care in north Wales and the first year of the Waterhouse Inquiry.
In yet another merger, in 1998, PTC joined with the CPSA to form the PCS. Sheldon continued as Joint General Secretary of PCS, alongside the CPSA’s Reamsbottom. Sheldon’s right to continue to hold the position of General Secretary without election for more than five years was challenged under section 55 of the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992, but the complaint was dismissed. Sheldon retired on his due date 31 July 2000, leaving Reamsbottom as sole General Secretary. That year, the year that the Waterhouse Report was published, Sheldon was awarded the OBE for his service to trades unionism.
Following retirement, Sheldon remained active in trade union affairs, and chaired the Civil Service Appeals Panel. In 2005, Sheldon was invited to lead several independent internal trade unions investigations on behalf of PCS, the FBU and ASLEF. The FBU formerly hosted Ann Jones, the Labour AM for the Vale of Clwyd, who grew up among the Dafydd’s gang and does everything possible to assist them. Ann continues her fine work by refusing to say a word about the genocidal NHS in north Wales but lavishing praise on it when yet another scandal or avoidable death hits the headlines.
More recently, John Sheldon attended a celebration of the 25th anniversary of the GCHQ campaign.
When researching this crew who so ably assisted the Top Docs and the trafficking gangs which the Top Docs facilitated while banging on about solidarity with the oppressed, I discovered another treasure of the Labour movement, Ada Maddocks.
Ada Maddocks was born in Felixstowe, grew up in Walthamstow and was educated at Walthamstow County High School before working in a laboratory for the Co-operative Wholesale Society. She became active in the co-operative movement, then began working for the NALGO in 1961. In 1976, Ada assumed lead responsibility for NHS employees in NALGO and remained in that position until 1992. Ada was elected to one of two women-only seats on the General Council of the TUC. She served as President of the TUC in 1990, actively supporting the ambulance workers’ strike. The ambulance workers who unlawfully delivered all those people abducted by a gang of paedophiles to the North Wales Hospital Denbigh in the middle of the night. Ada retired in 1992. Thank God for that. So Ada decided to wave good-bye to NALGO in the middle of the North Wales Police investigation into the possibility of a paedophile ring in north Wales/Cheshire. Once the careers of I and three other witnesses had been safely ruined the previous year. Thanks Ada!
NALGO was one of the unions to which some of those who abused kids in north Wales and elsewhere belonged. In north Wales, a NALGO rep was allowed to retire after it was admitted that he abused kids in his care. The NALGO rep was permitted to begin drawing his pension earlier than usual after a psychiatrist wrote a letter in support of him. I can only wonder whether that psychiatrist was wearing his baby doll nightie and nae panties when he wrote the letter.
NALGO is now part of UNISON.
When Ada the Loyal Abusers’ Friend pegged out in 2007, Dave Prentis, the General Secretary of UNISON, wrote her obituary for ‘The Guardian’. Dave, a paedophiles’ friend who has received much good press what with him being caring and representing so many saints who work in the NHS (see post ‘A Very COHSE Relationship With Some Very Nasty People’) told us that:
Ada Maddocks….was one of the leading women trade unionists of her day…She served on the TUC general council from 1977 until 1991 and in 1990 became only the fifth woman to hold the office of president. Her time on the TUC coincided both with a growth in the prominence of women in the trade union movement and the unions’ battle against their most formidable woman opponent, Margaret Thatcher.
The bitter ambulance workers’ dispute of 1989-90 occurred during Ada’s year as TUC president and she gave unstinting support to all union members involved. She went to London’s Smithfield market one cold winter’s morning, long before dawn, to win the meat porters’ support for the ambulance workers. They even let her stand on one of their barrows – an honour previously given only to the Queen Mother…
She joined the staff of Nalgo in 1961 as a secretary in the electricity section and moved to the health section in 1966, becoming a negotiating officer. Ten years later, she became the national officer responsible for the health service, and then staff side joint secretary of the general Whitley council. [The Whitley Council was the body which for decades kept the pay of groups of workers in the NHS who were not Top Doctors or managers very low. Angels only received a big pay hike when the Whitley Council was no longer responsible for determining their pay. The Whitley Council was hated by NHS workers. See previous post.] When she joined the TUC, she was one of just two women (the other being Marie Patterson, of the T&G) elected in the seats traditionally reserved for women to ensure that the council was not an all-male club. By the time she left, she was one of 15 women on the 50-member body, and the slogan that “a woman’s place was in her union” was one with which few trade unionists would disagree.
Her many friends and former colleagues remember Ada as a woman whose feet were firmly on the ground – she never let high office affect her judgement or the way she dealt with people. Many junior staff, and especially younger women in Nalgo, benefited from her friendship and encouragement, and went on to gain the promotion she was sure they would get. In 1982 she was awarded an OBE.
In retirement, Ada remained active in her local community. She was the chair of Redbridge Voices of Experience, which helped to produce the report Foundation for Change (2005), a health and social care strategy for older people and their carers in Redbridge and was an active supporter of Age Concern.
I never got to bottom of a mystery in 2001, the year that I qualified as a teacher at Bangor. Redbridge Council absolutely bombarded newly qualified teachers from Bangor with promotional literature, begging us to go and work as teachers for Redbridge Council. They even sent a man up to give interested people a lecture on how great being a teacher in Redbridge was. None of us had even heard of Redbridge; the trainee teachers at Bangor consisted of a proportion of Welsh speakers who wanted to teach in Wales through the medium of Welsh and a wider group of us who weren’t Welsh speaking but who had lived in Wales or done degrees at Bangor. There were only a few stragglers who didn’t have strong links to north Wales. Why on earth was Redbridge targeting newly qualified teachers from Bangor? I asked one of the lecturers at the School of Education why this was and she breezily said ‘oh they’re probably short of teachers there’. Then she went back to sleep again. At that time, the whole of the south east of England was short of teachers, the inner London boroughs were truly desperate. They didn’t all beat a path to one of the Welshest Schools of Education in the UK, to tell rural Welsh teachers that what they really needed was a career in Redbridge.
Like Ada, many of the paedophiles’ friends in north Wales/Cheshire have held senior positions in Age Concern. Including Margaret Hanson, the Vice-Chair of the Betsi Board, who was Chief Executive of Age Concern in North East Wales, at about the time when Redbridge Council were begging Welsh teachers to go and work for them. Margaret is a former children’s social worker who worked in Cheshire and she doubled up as a Cheshire Councillor as well. Margaret is married to David Hanson, the Labour MP for Delyn in north Wales, who was appointed as Blair’s PPS in 2001, in the aftermath of the Waterhouse Report (see post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part II’).
Ada – yet another Little Woman, who demonstrated that the union movement Cares.
I shall have to add Ada’s name to the list of those upon who’s graves I really must dance.
Here are Ada’s mates protesting against The Cuts:
A few days ago, the ‘Morning Star’ quoted a veteran of the trade union movement as remembering how he and his mates had opposed Thatch every step of the way, in those dark days in the 1980s. He named 1988 as having been a particularly bad year and listed a whole series of sins of Thatch, which I remembered well. Had anyone blown the whistle on the activities of Sir Peter Morrison and Jimmy Savile, both close friends of Thatcher’s, Thatch would have been dead in the water immediately, along with her Gov’t. But no-one did. Not even Ada and the Caring Wimmin. They were far too busy benefiting from the trafficking gang of which Savile and Morrison were key members.
Now for a bit about the man who intends to ensure that the trade union movement speaks for the working classes and for those working in the gig economy.
John Martin McDonnell was appointed the Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer in September 2015. He has been the Labour MP for Hayes and Harlington since 1997. McDonnell has served as Chair of the Socialist Campaign Group in Parliament and the Labour Representation Committee and was the Chair of the Public Services Not Private Profit Group. He is also parliamentary convenor of the Trade Union Co-ordinating Group of eight left wing trade unions representing over half a million workers. McDonnell attempted to stand for the position of Labour Party leader following Blair’s resignation in 2007, but was unable to gain sufficient nominations. He was a candidate for Party leadership again in 2010 following Gordon’s resignation after Labour’s electoral defeat, but withdrew in favour of Diane Abbott.
John McDonnell was backed in his leadership ambitions by the eccentric Rachel Webb (see post ‘Badlands’).
Alongside Jezza, McDonnell has been seen as a key figure on the left-wing of the party. When Jezza and John achieved eminence, one former Welsh MP observed that ‘two old Trots’ were never going to be able to lead the Labour Party to victory. However, the two old Trots are proving to be highly entertaining.
Upon leaving education, McDonnell held a series of unskilled jobs. After marrying his first wife, he studied for A-levels at night school at Burnley Technical College and at the age of 23, he moved to Hayes in Greater London, attended Brunel University and completed a bachelor’s degree in government and politics. During this period, McDonnell helped his wife run a small children’s home in Hayes and was active on behalf of his local community and for NUPE.
Like NALGO, NUPE was one of the unions to which many of those involved with the trafficking rings which infiltrated the UK’s children’s homes belonged.
After completing his Master’s in politics and sociology at Birkbeck, University of London, McDonnell became a researcher and official with the NUM, 1977–78, and later the TUC, 1978–82. From 1985–1987, McDonnell was Head of the Policy Unit at Camden Borough Council, then Chief Executive of the Association of London Authorities, 1987–1995 and the Association of London Government, 1995–1997.
Camden Borough Council was a stronghold of those who later became key figures in New Labour – including Tessa and John Mills. They resolutely ignored the paedophile gang operating on their doorstep. As in north Wales, Camden allowing gangsters to run their NHS and social services left its legacy. In 2004, it was revealed that, out of all areas in England and Wales, only one area had a higher suicide rate for women than north west Wales – Camden. See previous posts for details on the Camden crowd and their mates, some of whom were involved with the Association of London Authorities and the Association of London Government and were therefore still cluttering the place up during the first part of the Waterhouse Inquiry, as Blair looked forward to becoming PM.
Tough On Crime, Tough On The Causes Of Crime!
In 1981, McDonnell was elected to the GLC as the member for Hayes and Harlington. He became the GLC’s Chair of Finance and was Red Ken’s Deputy Leader. In an interview for ‘The Guardian’ McDonnell described his role during this time as being “to translate policies into concrete realities on the ground”. He further discussed his performance by indicating, “I was a fairly hard-nosed administrator. We set in train policies for which we were attacked from all sides but are now accepted as mainstream: large-scale investment in public services; raising the issue of Ireland and arguing for a dialogue for peace; equal opportunities; police accountability. We set up a women’s committee, an ethnic minorities committee”.
Under Red Ken, hundreds of kids from London Boroughs were sent to children’s homes in north Wales. They were being seriously abused and there were complaints about this to the Boroughs which had sent them to north Wales. The trafficking continued. Red Ken knew about this and was one of the signatories to an Early Day Motion in 1992, opposing the closure of Garth Angharad, a hell hole near Dolgellau, which was owned by Paul Hett, a now struck off solicitor who had previously owned schools and children’s homes where children were abused. Even Ronnie Waterhouse had to say a few harsh words about Paul Hett. Garth Angharad functioned as a prison for Dafydd’s gang. See posts ‘More On Those Prisons For Folk Who Dared Complain’ and ‘More On Those Who Signed That Early Day Motion’.
John McDonnell knew that those kids from London were being sent to north Wales. Furthermore, the ‘placements’ in the children’s homes run by Dafydd’s gang did not come cheap. The local authorities were paying substantial sums of money to have the ‘troubled children’ ‘looked after’ by gangsters. John Allen, who is now serving his third prison sentence for child abuse, became a millionaire within just a few years of opening the Bryn Alyn Community.
I cannot understand how John McDonnell, who would have seen the millions of pounds being transferred into the bank account of John Allen and others, could ever have been so stupid. There wasn’t just one complaint about abuse in those homes, there were hundreds. In July 1986, Ian Muir, the Deputy Headmaster of the ‘school’ for the Bryn Alyn kids, went to prison for six months for having sex with a girl in her early teens.
Following the abolition of the GLC, McDonnell was employed as Head of the Policy Unit at Camden London Borough Council. In 1987, McDonnell became Chief Executive of the Association of London Authorities (eventually the Association of London Government), where he represented all the London Boroughs in their relations with central Gov’t and Europe. McDonnell fought for his home constituency of Hayes and Harlington at the 1992 General Election, but was defeated by the Conservative incumbent Terry Dicks, by 53 votes. During the campaign, Terry Dicks sued for libel over critical material in McDonnell’s campaign leaflets; McDonnell settled and paid Dicks damages of £15,000 plus legal costs of £55,000.
As the MP for Hayes and Harlington, John McDonnell has been involved in several local community campaigns, including one opposing the expansion of Heathrow. He opposed New Labour policies on the Iraq War, foundation hospitals, student top-up fees, trust schools and anti-terror laws.
McDonnell voted against the 2003 Iraq War. In October 2006, McDonnell was one of 12 Labour MPs to back Plaid and the SNP’s call for a parliamentary inquiry into the war in Iraq.
In May 2003, McDonnell said of the IRA ‘It’s about time we started honouring those people involved in the armed struggle. It was the bombs and bullets and sacrifice made by the likes of Bobby Sands that brought Britain to the negotiating table. The peace we have now is due to the action of the IRA’.
Just to remind you John: In 1972, Jean McConville, a widow with 10 children, was dragged screaming from her house in Belfast at gunpoint by four wimmin, in front of her children, after being wrongly accused of passing information to British forces. She was shot in the head a few hours later. For three weeks after her abduction, her seven youngest children lived alone in the house, looked after by their 15 year old sister. Mrs McConville’s children were eventually taken into care by the social services and split up. One of them was housed in a children’s home already notorious for the sexual and physical abuse of children and was severely abused himself there. Most of Mrs McConville’s children developed serious difficulties and have led troubled lives. Dolours Price has admitted being involved in transporting Jean McConville after she was abducted.
Michael Mansfield acted as a defence barrister for Dolours Price. I wrote to Michael Mansfield in 1993 and told him some of what was happening to me at the hands of Gwynedd Social Services. He ignored it. At that time, the much publicised North Wales Police investigation into a possible paedophile ring in north Wales/Chester which was being concealed at the highest levels was coming to an end, with the police concluding that there was no ring. Hundreds of complaints had been made during the investigation, a file was sent to the DPP, but there were no prosecutions.
How would a widow with 10 children ever have time to be working for the British forces? But then how would Sadie Francis, a consultant psychiatrist – even though she shouldn’t have been – and three social workers employed by a gang of paedophiles, ever have been in fear for their lives because I walked into a room ‘carrying a rolled up newspaper’? But they were so terrified that they rang the police citing this as evidence of my dangerousness and demanded that I be arrested immediately. The newspaper won’t even have been a BNP publication, it will have been ‘The Guardian’ or the Indie.
Threatened with expulsion from the Labour Party, McDonnell went on to offer a rationale for his comments re the brave freedom fighters who murdered widows with 10 kids in an article written for The Guardian in June 2003 (“Expulsion would be an odd reward for telling hard truths”), stating:
|“||Let me be clear, I abhor the killing of innocent human beings. My argument was that republicans had the right to honour those who had brought about this process of negotiation which had led to peace. Having achieved this central objective now it was time to move on. The future for achieving the nationalists’ goals is through the political process and in particular through the Northern Ireland Assembly elections… Irish republicans have to face the fact that the use of violence has resulted in unforgivable atrocities. No cause is worth the loss of a child’s life. No amount of political theory will justify what has been perpetrated on the victims of the bombing campaigns||”|
McDonnell, in his study at Hayes, has a plaque which was presented to him by Gerry Kelly, dedicated to the “H-Block Martyrs 1981”, referring to those who died during the 1981 Irish hunger strikes.
According to a report in ‘The Times’ published in November 2015, McDonnell in 1985 made similar comments at a Labour Committee on Ireland meeting, before the start of the Northern Ireland peace process. The Deptford Mercury asserted at the time that McDonnell had suggested there was a role for “the ballot, the bullet and the bomb” in bringing about a United Ireland, and joked about “kneecapping” the “gutless wimp” Labour Councillors who had declined to join the meeting.
The real gutless wimps are a bunch of well-paid professional people who did the bidding of a trafficking gang because they did not dare take on the Top Doctors of the NHS.
McDonnell is a leading member of a number of all-party groups within Parliament, including groups representing individual trade unions, such as the PCS, the RMT, the FBU, the NUJ and justice unions such as NAPO. He is also a leading member of groups on a wide range of issues such as Britain’s Irish community, the Punjabi community, endometriosis (does John McDonnell have much knowledge of the research into this – I don’t question his membership of the group on the grounds that he is in possession of testicles, more that I suspect that John knows bugger all about this condition) and Kenya. McDonnell is a member of the Labour Land Campaign, which advocates introducing a land value tax.
John McDonnell has consistently opposed the privatisation of public services and Chaired the Public Services not Private Profit Campaign launched in 2006 and supported by sixteen trade unions linking up with students, pensioners, health campaigners and the World Development Movement.
The children’s homes in north Wales to which McDonnell’s mates in London sent kids were all privately owned. The associated prostitution, child porn and drugs business which Allen et al ran were also private enterprises. John Allen and Dafydd became millionaires and most of the other key figures in the gang did very nicely for themselves as well. Some of the ‘low paid’ former Angels of the North Wales Hospital Denbigh own yachts, second homes in Florida and multiple properties which they let out to holidaymakers or other tenants. They are far, far wealthier than most of the rest of north Wales.
I unknowingly moved into a house in Cwm-y-Glo a few years ago which was owned by a lady from Llanberis called Mo. The house was ropey, but I had two dogs and it was difficult to rent somewhere with pets, so I took it. The house turned out to be even ropier than I thought, in fact I found out that it had been condemned as being unfit for human habitation. Then the back door fell off its frame, the whole structure being rotten. Mo’s husband arrived and nailed the back door shut. At this point my PhD supervisor told me that he’d lend me the money to move somewhere else, because the house at Cym-y-Glo was now frankly dangerous, particularly as the paedophiles’ friends had a track record of trying to set fire to my houses. When I told Mo that I was moving out she asked me if I had any friends ‘perhaps with children, overseas students?’ who might want to rent it. I explained slowly and carefully to Mo that the house was dangerous and that she was breaking numerous laws by letting it out in that condition.
Mo herself lived in a nice house in really good nick in Llanberis. I was told that Mo was actually very affluent, although she was seen around the village looking a bit down at heel.
Mo was close friends with an Angel from the Hergest Unit who was abusing his kids. Mo knew about this and at one point asked me to stop telling people what had happened to me at the hands of the Hergest Unit.
There was one blessing when I lived at Berwyn Mount. The house was so damp that the paedophile gang would never have been able to set fire to it. Which must have been why they threw dog crap at my door, told the neighbours that I was a Dangerous Nutter, broke into my car, accused my dogs of being vicious and sent a heavy around who claimed that I owed him money when I didn’t. A retired policeman lived just down the road one side of me and a Top Doctor who had previously worked at the Hergest Unit lived the other side of me. They knew who was behind the harassment and intimidation but refused to tell me. Oh yeah and while I lived at that house, a drug addict smashed my car to bits, in broad daylight, in front of a crowd of witnesses, in Llanberis High Street. She was not charged, the police told me that it was my fault because my dogs had barked at her. Her partner was a big time dug dealer from Liverpool, who days before had fled Llanberis after guns were waved around. The addict herself worked as a care assistant in an old folk’s home in Penisarwaun, which was also employing traffiicked labour from Albania.
So if Helen Thomas would like to leave a message for me on the blog explaining how she will pay me some of the profits from her partner’s drug dealing business to compensate me for my car that she wrote off, I’ll be delighted to hear from her. I presumed that Helen’s unprovoked attack on me was not a one-off, because while it was happening one of her kids was screaming ‘stop it mum or you’ll get arrested again’.
I did mention to the police that there was probably a child protection issue, what with terrified kids, Helen being an insane, violent, drug addict and her boyfriend being Mr Big, but no, the policeman told me very firmly that there was No Problem. The problem was my dog who, unlike all the other dogs named in this post, did bark. He barked at Helen Thomas because she was screaming abuse at him and smashing up my car, while he was in the car with my other dog, who because she was elderly and deaf, didn’t bark.
They are a vicious criminal gang, not Caring Angels and they should have been put out of action a very long time ago O SPINELESS COLLUDING GITS.
Mo was also working a scam with her WEA classes, perhaps someone should investigate that, yet another way in which the Empowered Service Users of Gwynedd are so often helped.
It was when I was living at Cwm-y-Glo that David Blunkett awarded my fellow villager, Dee Edwards, with her Good Citizen’s Award. Meanwhile, Dee wrote letters to newspapers about the dangers of Black Mentally Ill people and held fundraising activities for her ‘victim’s charity’ – ‘Mothers Against Murder and Aggression’ no less – on the field which was located next to the car park, the bus stop and the main road into the village. When Dee was holding a fundraiser, it wasn’t a matter of you choosing to stroll over, join in and donate; instead as one appeared from whatever direction, one would be surrounded by a bunch of Dee’s supporters who would glower at you and tell you that you wanted to donate didn’t you, after all this was a charity collecting money to fight murderers and nutters. No of course I didn’t donate, which was probably why I had dog crap thrown at my house.
That woman intimidated half the village Blunkett you idiot, people could not believe it when she then picked up a sodding MBE. Dee Edwards arrived in north Wales from Liverpool, but no-one quite knew why.
McDonnell is ““not supportive of PFI schemes”, declaring that has “opposed every PFI scheme that was proposed”. In 2006, during the parliamentary debate on the Budget Resolutions, John McDonnell warned against PFIs, calling for an inquiry:
“There are numerous examples. I refer hon. Members to the work of Alison Pollock and to the publications by Unison in recent months, which contain example after example in the public services, health and education where PFI has been used to exploit the public purse, has failed to deliver and has delivered large bonuses and profits to individual company directors. That is why I regret that the Chancellor is going along that line. I would welcome a Government inquiry into PFI, which would probably echo the work done by the Public Accounts Committee on individual PFI schemes, which has demonstrated their lack of deliverability and cost effectiveness.”
If John McDonnell cares to read my post ‘More Summer Reading’, he can acquaint himself with the many scams from which many highly paid people have done very nicely that Alyson Pollock has robustly supported on the grounds that they are Of The NHS and thus Helping The Poor. They are helping Alyson Pollock and her mates a great deal more than The Poor.
Who do you think waved so many of the NHS PFI schemes through John? It was the NHS itself, many, many people in the NHS loved those schemes, all they saw was the dosh that would be provided to satisfy their endless demands. PFI was actively sold to them on the grounds that now ‘the NHS will get the investment that it needs’. They didn’t bother to read the small print, all they saw was another trough of plenty coming their way.
In 2015, McDonnell’s name appeared on a letter calling for the armed police and MI5 to be disbanded. He claimed that he had not signed the letter, which was produced by the Socialist Campaign for a Labour Victory but he was photographed holding a copy of the letter, although he later said that he did not know that the demand was on the letter.
During a hustings for the GMB on 7 June 2010 when McDonnell was pursuing his Party leadership bid, he was asked what single act he would do to improve the world if he could travel back to the 1980s. His off-the-cuff reply was that “I was on the GLC that Mrs. Thatcher abolished, I worked for the NUM and we had the NUM strike, I think I would assassinate Thatcher”.
All that you needed to have done John was to have made public what this man was doing:
You had all the evidence John: you were sending kids from London to the children’s homes in north Wales and were paying the paedophile gang handsomely, you were receiving the complaints that the kids were being abused and you were also mates with the NALGO and NUPE reps who worked for the unions which numbered the abusers among their members and provided legal advice for the abusers when they were the subject of complaints. It wasn’t rocket science.
In the aftermath of the Grenfell Tower fire, McDonnell said that those who died were ‘murdered’ by political decisions. He’s quite right, as were the kids in care and Empowered Service Users in north Wales. Just as well for John that they were – if those political decisions had not been made, a great many people would have gone to prison, including a few of those who are currently in The Queen’s Privy.
No-one warned us John. No-one ever came up to Brown and me, not even any of the many undercover officers who were around Bethesda posing as hippies and said ‘for God’s sake don’t go near the Top Doctors, every one of them is involved in a massive trafficking ring which stretches to Europe, they targeted Sally and because you’ve both complained they’re trying to kill you.’ For years and years, people were ‘referred’ to that bunch of gangsters. If, like me, they decided that they really didn’t want to be propositioned by horrible old psychiatrists, they were arrested and sectioned. Parents who were OK but struggling had their kids removed from them and given to paedophiles; Empowered Service Users who refused to answer their doors and locked the paedophile gang out of their houses found that their doors were broken down by the police and they were forcibly taken to Denbigh or Hergest or other such places; any young person with vulnerabilities whom the Top Docs thought that the traffickers might like the look of was ‘referred’. And once you were ‘referred’ you never, ever got away. Not even if you moved to London. Because you and Jeremy were in London weren’t you John…
It was entirely a political decision. MI5 were recording everywhere. In the early 1990s, Tony Francis chased me along a main road in north Wales, in daylight, accompanied by a Staffie bull terrior, hurling insults at me. (Years later, this was just one of the many Tony-related incidents which Tony’s colleague Ella Fisk told me to attribute to Tony’s mood disorder.) I walked into a police station located on that road and said to the Sgt ‘have you seen what this man is doing?’ The Sgt told me to get out of the police station or he’d arrest me. I asked him what I was supposed to do in the face of someone behaving like this. He told me that for all he cared I could chuck myself off the suspension bridge, he was here to protect decent people. Decent people threw a petrol bomb into a building and killed five witnesses to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal not long after this incident.
The other day I received a blow by blow account of that incident with Francis; a transcription of everything that Francis said, a detailed description of the clothes that I was wearing, the lot. It was indeed as I remembered it. Even the bit where Tony Francis got a camera out and took a picture of my bum. I was told that the whole scenario had been filmed by someone and bloody hell were they worried when they saw it.
But no-one stopped any of it.
A political decision John.
John McDonnell managed Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership campaign. The Jeremy who previously worked for NUPE, who remained friends with them all in NUPE and NALGO, the Jeremy who’s election agent’s business partner went to prison for a series of sex assaults on schoolboys, the Jeremy who was surrounded by the paedophile gang which operated in Islington, a gang with links to Dafydd et al. Jeremy sat on an NHS body which covered Hariney/Islington/Bloomsbury when Dafydd had direct links to the NHS and social services in those areas. After Jeremy was elected as an Islington MP, he was told by Dr Liz Davies, the Islington whistleblowing social worker, that kids were being horrifically abused in the Islington children’s homes. Jeremy didn’t respond. Some of the Islington kids were murdered. See my previous posts for details of this cesspit.
No wonder they all love Jeremy in his local authorities. The whole bloody lot of them colluded and Jeremy will never say a word about any of it. They’ve been colluding for decades as well – the Bloomsbury set were crossbred with the Anglo-Welsh aristocracy in the first part of the 20th century when Amabel Strachey married Sir Clough Williams-Ellis and subsequently settled at Clough’s family seat at Llanfrothen/Croesor. Sir Clough then let out the cottages on the estate to their bohemian friends from England (see post ‘The Village’).
Obviously I need a bit of political balance a la the BBC on this blog, so I’ll now pay a bit of attention to a man whom I meant to cover weeks ago but have been too busy to do so, a man much in the news at present – the Tory MP, David Davies, or ‘DD’ as he styled himself on the T shirts worn by his young female supporters some years ago when he was standing for something or other. Probably the leadership of the Tory Party.
David Michael Davis has been the MP for Haltemprice and Howden (in Yorkshire) since 1997 and served as Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, July 2016-July 2018. Davis was previously elected to the Commons for Boothferry (in Yorkshire) in 1987 and was re-elected in 1992. Davis squeezed into The Queen’s Privy along with the rest of them in the 1997 New Years Honours, just before Sir Ronnie began hearing the witnesses evidence in public…
Born to a single mother, Betty Brown, in York on 23 December 1948, Davis was initially brought up by his grandparents there. His father, whom he met once after his mother’s death, is Welsh. After his mother married Ronald Davis, the family moved to London, where they lived initially in a flat in Wandsworth which Davis has described as “a terrible little slum”. Later, after his half-sister was born, the family moved to the Aboyne council estate in Tooting, his stepfather being a shop steward at Battersea Power Station. Davis attended Bec Grammar School.
When Davis were a lad, St George’s hadn’t yet relocated to Tooting, but Springfield Hospital was there as was the notoriously dreadful Tooting Bec Hospital, which was so bad that even the paedophiles of Springfield wouldn’t work there; Tooting Bec Hospital was closed down at the time of Peak Paedophilia in Tooting. However, the paedophile ring in the Tooting/Wandsworth area was in existence and at some point in Davis’s life – certainly during his political career – Davis will have been made aware of it. The one-time Director of Education for Wandsworth, Donald Naismith, was known to be a paedophile and involved with the gang (see previous posts).
On leaving Bec Grammar School in Tooting, Davis worked as an insurance clerk and joined the TA’s 21 SAS (Artists) Regiment. He then went to Warwick University where he completed his degree. Whilst at Warwick, Davis was one of the founding members of the student radio station, University Radio Warwick and he founded a men’s choir. He went on to London Business School (1971-73) and later to Harvard University, (1984-85).
Davis met his wife, Doreen, at Warwick. They married on 28 July 1973 and have three children.
Whilst a student, Davis was active in the Federation of Conservative Students, becoming national Chairman in 1973.
Davis worked for Tate & Lyle for 17 years, rising to become a senior executive, including restructuring its troubled Canadian subsidiary, Redpath Sugar.
Davis was Conservative Party Chairman, 2001-02 and Shadow Secretary of State for the Office of Deputy PM, when IDS was Leader of the Tories.
Davis used his first interview as Shadow Home Secretary in November 2003 to state his personal support for a reintroduction of the death penalty for people convicted of multiple murder ‘where there is clear evidence and no doubt’ surrounding the offender’s guilt, citing Peter Sutcliffe and Ian Brady as examples of offenders who would fall into this category. This interview came almost 40 years after the abolition of the death penalty for murder. Furthermore Davis ignored the reality that the criminal justice system is so corrupt that it is quite difficult to maintain that in almost any case there is ‘no doubt’. Sutcliffe and Brady were both in the hands of ‘professionals’ whom I know were thoroughly corrupt and had stitched up innocent people; to what extent that went on in the cases of Sutcliffe and Brady I am not sure, but one couldn’t rely upon what was said by those who proffered their opinions.
Between 2003 and 2008, Davis was the Shadow Home Secretary in the Shadow Cabinets of both Michael Howard and David Cameron. Davis had previously been a candidate for the leadership of the Conservative Party in 2001 and 2005.
At the time of the 2005 Conservative leadership contest, David Davis was Shadow Secretary of State for the Home Department. His Campaign Manager in the leadership contest was Conservative MP and Davis’s Deputy as Shadow Home Secretary, Andrew Mitchell (who in 2010 became Secretary of State for International Development in Cameron’s Cabinet).
On 12 June 2008, Davis unexpectedly announced his intention to resign as an MP and was immediately replaced as Shadow Home Secretary; this was in order to force a by-election in his seat for which he intended to seek re-election by mounting a specific campaign designed to provoke wider public debate about the erosion of civil liberties in the UK. Following his resignation as MP, Davis became the Conservative candidate in the resulting by-election, which he won a month later. In 2012, together with Liam Fox, he founded the Tory pressure group Conservative Voice to amplify the voice of grassroots members, which Davis thought was getting lost in the party.
As a backbench MP, Davis continued campaigning for civil liberties. One of his speeches on this matter was the 2009 Magna Carta Lecture at Royal Holloway, University of London, in association with the Magna Carta Trust.
Davis has supported civil liberties campaign group Big Brother Watch and in January 2010 he spoke with Tony Benn at the official launch. In 2012 he helped lead the opposition to Coalition plans to allow police and security services to extend their monitoring of the public’s email and social media communications. Davis has taken more conservative stances on some other civil liberties issues, having repeatedly voted to restrict abortion, fertility treatment, embryo research and LGBT rights.
Davis was amongst the signatories of a letter to The Guardian condemning the Coalition’s efforts to hide the UK’s involvement in rendition and torture behind secret trials.
In May 2010, after the General Election which resulted in a hung Parliament it was revealed that Cameron wanted to invite Davis and other right-wingers such as Michael Howard and IDS into his Conservative-Liberal Democrat Coalition cabinet. However, Davis refused and remained a critic of the Gov’t on its stance on tuition fees. He offered critical commentary on the coalition in a BBC interview in March 2012.
Davis resigned from his Gov’t position on 8 July 2018. Following the resignation, the Dept for Exiting the European Union junior Minister Steve Baker and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson also resigned.
At the time of Davis’s resignation as an MP in 2008, the Labour MP Andy Burnham made a speech which was widely interpreted as falsely implying an inappropriate relationship between Davis and the then Director of Liberty, Shami Chakrabarti. Burnham was forced to issue a public apology under threat of legal action.
Would anyone even notice an ‘inappropriate relationship’ among this lot?
Davis’s wiki entry tells of his adventures at Warwick University and his early days as a Tory. His wiki entry admits to David having been Chairman of the Federation of the Conservative Students in 1973. The FCS were famously mad and although Tebbit finally dissolved the FCS in the 1980s, the FCS got away with a great deal before Tebbs did that. Neil Hamilton was involved with the FCS at a similar time to Davis. Someone at Bangor who was at Aberystwyth University with Hamilton witnessed the famous incident in which Hamilton goose-stepped around the institution. Hamilton of course went onto greater things, including forging links with an Italian fascist group. It was Neil Hamilton’s youthful excesses which provided the fodder for the BBC ‘Panorama’ programme years later, ‘Maggie’s Militant Tendency’, over which the Tory Party took legal action (see previous posts).
Neil Hamilton served as the MP for Tatton, the neighbouring constituency to Peter Morrison and Neil and Christine Hamilton joined Morrison at various functions. Like everybody else in Cheshire, the Hamiltons knew that Morrison was assaulting children. Neil Hamilton’s big disgrace and exit from the Commons arrived with his involvement in the Ian Greer cash for questions scandal. Sir Peter Morrison was involved in that as well, but received less publicity because he had already left the Commons by the time that the scandal broke.
What is not on Davis’s wiki entry is who constituted his political opposition when he was busy with the Tories at Warwick – it was the former VC of Bangor University, the man who came under fire from Dafydd’s gang as a result of challenging them. He was Chairman of the Socialist Society at Warwick when David Davis was busy with the far right of the Tory Party.
When that VC was encountering so many problems and when Bangor University was very obviously under attack from all angles, by people from across the political spectrum including a few with connections in very high places, David Davies was at the top of the Tory Party.
A few things to consider:
Davis was Chairman of the Tory Party in the aftermath of the Waterhouse Report. As Davis departed that role, Dafydd’s gang came in hot pursuit of me, had me sacked from my job, attempted to fit me up for a very serious crime and when that failed, they tried to have me struck off the teaching register. The person who cleared my name was a junior Minister, who was – although I had no idea at the time – a close friend of the VC of Bangor University. Where did that close friend undertake postgrad work? Er – Warwick University. He was there along with David Davis.
Just after my name was cleared, Brown’s mum was found dead. I was quite close to Brown’s mum and we had written to each other continually from the time that I left Somerset to go to university.
In 2005, Andrew Mitchell, Davis’s Deputy to Davis in his Shadow Home Secretary role, was Davis’s leadership campaign manager. So they were obviously good mates. In 2010 Andrew Mitchell entered the Cabinet. Andrew Mitchell’s wife is a Top Doctor, one of those who never, ever speaks of the real and very big problems in the NHS.
In 2009, when David Davis was busy with the Royal Holloway College, Brown, I and one of our colleagues from Bangor were collaborating with two social work academics at the Royal Holloway. We had teamed up because we were all concerned about patients being abused and ‘service user involvement’ being used to conceal this. Our colleagues at the Royal Holloway were having a terrible time from their colleagues in London and the ‘services’ because they had raised concerns about the abuse of patients. One of our friends from the Royal Holloway subsequently left her job and went to the US because she could stand it no more.
David Davis shared a platform with Tony Benn in 2010. When Davis did that, I had recently written to Tony Benn about the abuse of mental health patients in north Wales. Tony simply replied saying ‘sorry, mental health is not my area’. I had been encouraged to write to Wedgie Benn by someone who knew him as a disability campaigner.
The former VC of Bangor didn’t find any peace after he stepped down as VC. He was appointed as Chair of the newly created Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board. He was in that role when Andrew Mitchell was a member of Cameron’s Cabinet. The former VC and his newly appointed Chief Exec dared take on the gross malpractice of the paedophile gang. I sat in a public meeting when both the Chair and the Chief Exec of the Betsi Board were threatened with violence from a mob who had infiltrated the meeting. This was witnessed by journos, a TV camera crew and four Welsh Assembly politicians. No-one called for calm and the threats were not reported in the media – the proposed ‘NHS Cuts’ were. The only plans which had been made to cut anything was the proposed closure of a small number of NHS buildings which constituted a risk to patient safety.
After that public meeting, I was told repeatedly by associates of Dafydd’s gang re the Chair of the Betsi Board that they would ‘bring him down’, ‘take him out’ and that he and his Chief Exec ‘won’t win this and when they lose your life won’t be worth living’.
Er -by threatening me with guns perhaps?
Both Merfyn and the Chief Exec, Mary Burrows, ended up resigning some six years ago. The members of the paedophile gang moved in and subsequently occupied most positions on the Board. The Board is bankrupt, it is in special measures after being the centre of the biggest mental health scandal that there has yet been in the UK, they are finding it impossible to recruit staff and the death rates continue to soar. But at least Merfyn is no longer in any public appointment, the gang killed his wife and drove him out.
David Davis, that champion of civil liberties and the man with a firm line on law n order, was one of those responsible.
