Radical Leicester And Some Other Free Radicals

Whilst researching the background of people who protected the paedophiles’ friends, I noticed that a great many had been involved in some way with the Runnymede Trust. I’m not sure why – the Runnymede Trust is a registered charity, an ‘independent race equality think tank’ which ‘aimed to generate intelligence for a multi-ethnic Britain through research, network building, leading debate and policy engagement’. It was established in 1968 and at present receives much of its funding from the Home Office. Other major donors are the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust, Esmee Fairbairn Foundation and the Robert Gavron Charitable Trust.

It could just be that an involvement with the Runnymede Trust looks good on one’s CV and there’s nothing more important to the cadre of paedophiles’ friends whom Blair appointed to senior positions or to the Lords than ticking the right boxes on one’s CV – but of course, if that is happening, the Runnymede Trust will be doubling up as a networking opportunity for the paedophiles’ friends.  I decided to have a look at those who founded the Runnymede Trust as well as those who have held leading roles in that organisation.

One of the movers and shakers in the establishment of the Runnymede Trust and its first Director was Dipak Nandy. Dipak is an Indian Marxist who was born in Calcutta in 1936 and came to Britain in 1956. Nandy studied at Leeds University where he met his first wife – whom he later married in 1964, by which time he was a lecturer at the University of Leicester (I think that she was one of his students at the time). Dipak and his wife, Maggie, feature in ‘Radical Leicester’, a document produced years ago which proudly flags up a few folk who flew the red flag in that city in the past.

In the 1980s Leicester was known as a city which had one of the notorious ‘loony left’ councils – Leicester City Council were very hot on race and ethnicity ‘initiatives’ because of the composition of the population. Not that these initiatives always reached the people who were alleged to be benefiting from them. I lived in Leicester for a few months in 1987 – I shared a house with Brown and a few others and we were the only white British people in the street. One afternoon one of our neighbours paid us a visit and asked if I and my friend would teach his daughters English. My friend was someone who was involved in aspects of Radical Leicester herself and asked me why our neighbour hadn’t contacted the City Council if he wanted English lessons. Well if you’re a first generation migrant who works long hours and who doesn’t speak much English yourself you won’t be having much contact with Keith Vaz or his mum in the City Council, but if you have two young English women as neighbours who work in universities, the obvious thing to do if you want someone to teach your daughters English is to ask the neighbours.

In 1987 I knew very little about Leicester – unlike my friend I didn’t have links with Radical Leicester and I was far too busy trying to stop those we know and love in north Wales from having me imprisoned. I had a part-time job in an old people’s home where I worked with a young Indian woman who’s sister had run away from home to escape a forced marriage, so I learnt that was happening. I also heard a local GP joking about all the Indian girls running away from home before they were 19 to escape forced marriages, so I knew that the problem was being ignored. I knew that there were at least three sweatshops down the road from our house which were owned by people who’s attitude to fire hazards would make Richard Littlejohn look like the most enthusiastic member of the HSE and who Unemployed South Asian women with no English who worked in secret throughout the night and then all sneaked out of the door at about 5 am. I therefore assumed that they were working illegally. I found out from someone who’s husband worked in clothing that the existence of these sweatshops was also very well-known.

It was whilst I was living in Leicester that I first discovered how well-known the criminality of Dr Dafydd Alun Jones et al in north Wales was. As I was repeatedly arrested on the basis of the increasingly lurid allegations made by Dafydd and the Top Doctors and cases collapsed in Court after it became clear that they had all lied their arses off (see post ‘Workers’ Play Time’), Brown became very worried indeed that one day they’d get their stories straight and it would be a long prison sentence for me. Brown knew a mature student who was a former social worker whom he invited over for advice who incredibly enough turned out to be lovely – she had left social work because she found that her colleagues were far more interested in pursuing vendettas against each other than in helping their clients. I told her some of what had happened to me in north Wales and showed her some of the police statements that had been made about me and she was horrified, told me that the contingent in north Wales had broken the law repeatedly and that something very worrying was going on. She recommended that I go to MIND for advice.

I went to see Leicester MIND – only to find that the man down there had heard that there was serious corruption in the mental health services in north Wales, that it was ‘all tied up with Freemasonry’, that there’d been a big investigation up there and that one psychiatrist ‘had everything stitched up for himself’. He recommended that I go to see William Bingley, MIND’s legal director in London. Bingley told me that Dafydd was ‘a very charming psychopath’, that there had been numerous complaints about him to the GMC including at least one which involved a death, that he routinely threatened and bribed people, that he ran a ‘sex therapy’ clinic in north Wales which he used to wield power over people and that if I returned to north Wales I would undoubtedly find myself constantly harassed by him and his henchmen. What William didn’t tell me was that in addition to all this, Dafydd was facilitating a paedophile gang, that MIND were colluding with it all and that Bingley used this a few years later to bag himself a job as Chief Exec of the Mental Health Act Commission – who were also colluding with Dafydd and the paedophiles.

Because I was living in Leicester whilst one of the cases that Dafydd and the paedophiles’ friends brought against me was going through the courts, my lawyer used the services of a psychiatrist from Leicester, Dr James Earp, for the court report. James Earp wasn’t the lunatic that Dafydd was, but he covered up for Dafydd’s law breaking nonetheless (see post ‘An Expert From England’).

I now know that there was a paedophile ring operating in Leicester that had links to Dafydd’s gang and that as in north Wales, the mental health services, the social services and the City Council were concealing it – and I bet that MIND in Leicester were as well. The high profile figure involved with the paedophile gang in north Wales/Cheshire was Sir Peter Morrison, the Tory MP for Chester and Thatcher’s aide. The high profile figure in Leicester who was involved with the gang there was of course Lord Greville Janner, Labour MP for Leicester North West (1970-74) and Leicester West (1974-97). Janner succeeded the seat of Leicester North West after his father Barnett Janner – who like Greville Janner was a lawyer who was given a peerage. Barnett Janner had spent the first part of his life in Cardiff and had been a student at the University College of South Wales and Monmouthshire. Barnett was subsequently Liberal MP for Whitechapel (1931-35), then Labour MP for Leicester North West (1945-70). Greville Janner was famously never prosecuted, although he was interviewed by the police in 1991 – his lawyer Sir David Napley was so certain that Janner would be charged that he retained the crooked barrister George Carman (see post ‘Sisters Are Indeed Doing It For Themselves’). Janner wasn’t charged although the CPS have since fessed up that there was sufficient evidence for charges – but no-one has explained why none were forthcoming. Much more recently Janner was supposed to have faced a trial of the facts. There was delay after delay and Janner died before even that happened. Janner’s daughter Rabbi Laura Janner-Klauser and his son, Daniel Janner – who is a lawyer like old Greville was – are robustly asserting that their dad was a lovely old boy who has been wrongly accused by gold-diggers and Daniel Janner has threatened to sue the arse of any former kids in care who allege that his dad molested them. Janner’s other daughter is the notorious Marion Janner, who is a mental health campaigner. Marion and her support dog Buddy are regulars on the Radio 4 ‘All In The Mind’ programme and Marion has complimented the mental health services in north Wales on their excellence. Marion seems to have succeeded in extracting a rather higher standard of mental health care out of the mental health services for herself than the rest of us ever have.

Greville was friends with a man called Frank Beck. Beck was a senior social worker who was officer in charge of a number of children’s homes in Leicestershire who died not long after he was jailed in 1991. Beck received five life sentences for multiple sexual and physical assaults on children and a further 24 years for other offences, including rape. Before he was convicted – even after there had been complaints about his conduct – Beck was constantly described as an extremely able dedicated social worker who pioneered successful therapy for troubled children. Beck had also been elected as a Liberal Councillor on Blaby District Council in 1983 – he was re-elected in 1987. The Kirkwood Inquiry which followed Beck’s conviction absolutely damned Leicestershire County Council. The Kirkwood Inquiry was at the time the biggest investigation that there had ever been into institutional child abuse in the UK – until the Waterhouse Inquiry a few years later. Greville remained in Parliament as did Keith Vaz who had been sitting in the constituency of Leicester East throughout but had never noticed anything amiss. When Greville took up his seat in the Lords in 1997, Patricia Hewitt succeeded him in Leicester West. The Patricia who was General Secretary of the NCCL whilst it was affiliated to PIE, the Patricia who later became Blair’s Secretary of State for Health. The Patricia who is married to William Birtles – a judge. Birtles was also involved with the NCCL.

Radical Leicester will have heard about the paedophile gang – you can’t work on the ground in communities and not notice at least a few clues when something like that is happening. Another person who will have known is Sue Townsend, the celebrated author of the Adrian Mole books. Townsend lived in Leicester her whole life and she worked as a community youth worker. Some people in Leicester University will also have known – James Earp’s colleagues in the medical school knew and people involved with social work/social policy/ sociology will have known.

Tony Blair’s advisor and favourite sociologist Anthony Giddens began his career at Leicester University – Giddens taught social psychology there between 961-69. In 2004 Anthony Giddens became Lord Giddens and joined Greville in the upper house.

Nigel Lawson, Thatcher’s Chancellor of the Exchequer, 1983-89 – whilst Sir Peter Morrison was Minister of State for Employment (1983-85), Minister of State for the DTI (1985-86), Deputy Party Chairman (1986-87) and Minister of State for Energy (1987-90) – was MP for Blaby in Leicestershire, 1974-92. Nigel Lawson was yet another person who was elevated to the peerage in 1992 – days before five witnesses to the paedophile gang in north Wales were killed by a firebomb (see post ‘The Silence Of The Welsh Lambs’).

As with north Wales, the paedophile gang in Leicester went back decades – I suspect that playwright Joe Orton who grew up in Leicester may have been involved with them (see comments following my post ‘They Planned To Put Acid In All The Reservoirs’).

 

To return to Radical Leicester. Dipak Nandy’s first wife, Maggie, had studied sociology at Leeds University, was a member of the Communist Party and was active in the Communist Party during the 1963 elections. In 1964 Maggie undertook postgraduate teacher training at Leicester University’s School of Education. Whilst at Leicester University she was a member of the Anti-Racialist Committee. Maggie and Dipak split up in 1969, just after he founded the Runnymede Trust.

Dipak and Maggie Nandy were both active in the CRE (Commission for Racial Equality) and in the 1970s Maggie was active against the NF (National Front). She taught at Bushloe and Countesthorpe College and was the warden of Blaby Teachers Centre. Maggie wrote for ‘Forum’ – not the soft porn magazine which published stories by Alastair Campbell, but a left-leaning education magazine which went under the same name. Maggie was also active in the Youth Foundation which provided housing for black people. By 1977 Maggie was Deputy Head at West Moors Middle School in Dorset – she then returned to Leicester and began studying to become a lawyer. She died from cancer in 1982.

Someone with Maggie’s CV could not have remained completely unaware that children were being abused.

Rob Evans, one of the senior managers of the north Wales children’s services in the 1980s whilst the paedophile gang operated within those services, had previously worked as a team leader in Dorset and before that had undertaken social work training at Leicester University. Rob Evans was then given responsibility by Gwynedd Social Services for mental health services, where he took no action at all when challenged about the abuses of Keith Fearns and the Arfon Community Mental Health Team (see post ‘I Know Nuzzing…’). Post-Waterhouse dear old Rob was appointed to run community services on Anglesey. Rob was one of the many who accused me of ‘arassin’ him after he’d spent a few years delivering children to a paedophile ring. Rob was one of the social workers who took the children’s shoes away because they did insist on trying to escape from the beatings and the buggery – when Rob admitted to me that he did this, he described it as ‘social work practice’.

‘Radical Leicester’ also paid tribute to Colin Grundy, a member of the Labour Party. Grundy began his teaching career in 1960 as a science teacher at Roundhill School and was the Labour candidate for a Leicester constituency in 1966 and 1970. In the 1970 General Election Grundy was beaten by the Conservative candidate Tom Boardman by 106 votes. Boardman held the seat until 1974 and was a key figure in Heath’s Gov’t. In 1973 Grundy was elected to Leicester City Council for North Braunstone ward; he was Councillor for Westcotes ward from 1983 and became Chair of the Planning Committee. Grundy became Deputy Head at Alderman Newton’s School, retiring in 1987. In 1991 Grundy was Lord Mayor of Leicester.

 

Dipak Nandy married again in 1972. He married Annie Byers, the daughter of Lord Frank Byers, who was leader of the Liberals in the Lords for 19 years. Frank Byers was a member of the committee which ‘investigated’ Jeremy Thorpe’s conduct in 1971. The investigation included Normal Scott being interviewed by the committee – the interview ended with Frank Byers shouting insults at Norman Scott and Scott leaving the room in tears (see post ‘My How Things Haven’t Changed’). Because Norman was just a Nancy boy of course, not because Jeremy was plotting to have him murdered.

Dipak and Annie had a daughter in 1979 – Lisa. She’s now a Labour MP! Please see post ‘He Knows Where The Bodies Are Buried’ for details of my unpleasant experiences when the Compass Group invited me to go to London to hear Lisa speak.

Dipak Nandy left academia when he founded the Runnymede Trust in 1968. When he stepped down from the role of Director in 1973, he spent a year having an ‘educational break’ with Social and Community Planning Research. Nandy then acted as a special consultant to the Home Office to work on the Sex Discrimination Bill in 1975 – he also was one of the people who drafted the Race Relations Bill in 1976. The Home Secretary at the time was the Lord Protector of Paedophiles, Roy Jenkins (see post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part I’).

In 1976 Nandy moved to Manchester where the EOC (Equal Opportunities Commission) was located.  He was appointed the EOC’s Deputy Director and Chief Policymaker and remained in those roles until 1986. In 1979 Nandy began to forge a link with the Directorate-General V of the European Commission – he was Conference Secretary for the Commission’s Conference regarding their work towards the equal treatment of women throughout the nine members of the European Commission.

Dipak Nandy was Chairman of the BBC’s Immigrant Programme, 1983-88 and of its General Council, 1983-90. Presumably Dipak found his way to those positions as a result of his membership of the Annan Committee, which was established in 1974 to discuss the UK Broadcasting Authority and the funding of the BBC, IBA and broadcasting standards. It was the Annan Committee who when they reported in 1977 recommended a fourth independent TV channel.

Dipak sat on the Annan Committee along with Sir Charles Morrison’s wife. Charles Morrison was the elder brother of Sir Peter Morrison, who at the time that his sister-in-law was discussing broadcasting standards with Lisa Nandy’s dad was Conservative MP for Chester and was molesting children in care in north Wales as well as in other locations.

 

The Chair of the Annan Committee was Lord Noel Annan. Noel Annan entered Kings College, Cambridge in 1935. Whilst he was there he was a member of the secret debating society the Cambridge Apostles – Guy Burgess and Michael Straight who later spied for the Soviets were also members. In 1940 Annan joined the Intelligence Corps and he then served in Churchill’s War Cabinet. In 1944 he was posted to Paris with British Military Intelligence.

Annan returned to Kings College in 1946 as an academic. He was appointed Provost of Kings in 1956, received a peerage in 1965 and then became Provost of UCL in 1966. Annan was Vice-Chancellor of the University of London, 1978-81. My post ‘Doris Karloff – Honest About Her Expenses But Not Much Else’ explains how Ann Widdecombe, although in a senior administrators job at London University, was in the early eighties positively encouraged by her boss to take as much time off as she wanted in order to go hunting for a suitable constituency where she could stand as the Conservative candidate as well as to pursue covert activities opposing the anti-nuclear movement. Furthermore, Widdecombe was allowed to take secretarial staff from the University with her in pursuit of her ventures – the staff provided free labour. Noel Annan was Vice-Chancellor at the time and Ann’s misuse of University resources continued under the next VC, Lord Randolph Quirk. Lord Annan was: a Director of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden; Chairman of the Trustees of the National Gallery; a Trustee of the British Museum; the President of the London Library.

Another member of the Annan Committee was Philip Whitehead, Labour MP. My post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part IV’ describes how Whitehead was the MP for two different constituencies, on in Derbyshire and then one in Staffordshire, both areas with very serious problems of organised child abuse.

Professor Hilde Himmelweit also sat on the Committee. Himmelweit was a social psychologist who did her PhD with the discredited H.J. Eysenck at the Institute of Psychiatry. She worked at the LSE, 1948-83 and was given a Chair in 1964.

Tom Jackson the trade unionist was also a member of the Committee. Jackson was General Secretary of the Post Office Workers and was Chairman of the General Council of the TUC, 1978-79 – the TUC which embraced all those unions representing the staff of children’s homes, psychiatric hospitals etc who abused or concealed the abuse of the people whom they were paid to care for. Jackson was a BBC Governor, 1968-73,  a member of the Court and Council of Sussex University, 1974-78 and a Director of BP, 1975-83.

Sir Antony Jay, a writer, broadcaster and director who worked for the BBC and in PR was another Annan Committee member. Jay joined the BBC in 1955, was Editor of ‘Tonight’, 1962-63 and Head of Television Talk Features, 1963-64. Jay left the BBC in the mid-60s and in 1972 became John Cleese’s business partner in Video Arts. Antony Jay was a big supporter of Thatcher and penned a lot of material in which he accused the BBC of being a dangerous bastion of liberalism and having a left-wing bias. Jay co-authored the only thing that Thatcher ever seemed to find amusing, the series ‘Yes Minister’.

Lord Mackay of Clashfern, a Conservative peer, also sat on the Committee. Mackay was Lord Advocate, 1979-84 and Lord Chancellor, 1987-97. Mackay concealed the cesspit which was the alcoholic wife-beater Sir Nicholas Fairbain – who was most certainly a paedophiles’ friend and stood accused of child molesting himself – and his doings and was also responsible for the appointment of the paedophiles’ friend Baroness Patricia Scotland as the first black woman QC, the youngest QC since William Pitt, the most incredible QC that the world had ever yet experienced – see post ‘More On Baroness Patricia Scotland QC – And Her Very Sleazy Friends’ for the catalogue of horrors that can be traced back to the doors of Fairbain and Mackay.

On the Annan Committee along with this lot was Geoffrey Sims, Vice-Chancellor of Sheffield University, 1974-91.

Also on the Committee was Sir Marcus Worsley. Worsley went to Eton and New College, Oxford, along with so many others who concealed organised child abuse (see post ‘A Study In Tyranny’). He was a Councillor on Malton Rural District Council from 1955 and became Vice-Chairman in 1965. Worsley was Conservative MP for Keighley, 1959-64 and then for Chelsea, 1966-74. He was Second Church Estates Commissioner, 1970-74 and wielded great influence in the Church of England. In 1978 Worsley was Deputy Lieutenant for North Yorkshire, in 1982-83 he was High Sheriff for North Yorkshire and then Lord Lieutenant for North Yorkshire, 1987-99.

So Worsley spent a great deal of time in the higher echelons of Yorkshire society during the years when organised child abuse and police corruption reigned supreme in the region. Sir Marcus undertook duties associated with the Royal Household whilst Yorkshire’s highest profile sex offender and friend of Prince Charles and Thatcher – Jimmy Savile – was in his heydey.

Worsley was PPS to Enoch Powell when Powell was Minister of Health – the Enoch Powell who was so shocked by what he witnessed on a visit to the North Wales Hospital Denbigh that he announced that he would close the place down, but was prevented from pursuing this aim by forces unknown (see post ‘The Creme de la Creme’). Worsley resigned as Powell’s PPS late in 1961, citing ‘pressure of work’. It was in 1961 that Powell made his famous ‘Water Towers’ speech in which he signalled that would close the asylums. During his years in Parliament, Worsley also served as PPS to Bill Deedes MP for Ashford (1950-74) who was Editor of the Tory Party’s in-house magazine ‘The Daily Telegraph’ and a friend of the Thatchers. Worsley served as PPS  for Willie Whitelaw when Whitelaw served his first term as Lord President of the Council under Ted Heath (1970-72) – the Willie who was mates with Ted Heath and who so loyally served the Tory Party during the many years that it kept the lid on various sex scandals, including Sir Peter Morrison’s activities with children (see post ‘A Bit More Paleontology’). Worsley had a ‘special interest’ in social services whilst he was a politician.

Worsley worked for the BBC European Service, 1950-53, which suggests that he had links to the security services.

Sir Marcus observed that he wasn’t able to impact on Chelsea whilst he was the MP there as he was able to impact on Yorkshire, where everybody knew each other and he was invited to lots of local gatherings. I suspect that this translates as he ran Yorkshire and was rather put out when found that he couldn’t do the same in Chelsea. There was absolutely no escaping the long arm of Sir Marcus in Yorkshire – he retained a ‘particular interest’ in York Minster and also had a finger in the big juicy pie that is the National Trust.

Sir Marcus’s sister Katherine became the Duchess of Kent and his wife Bridget led the sort of well-connected aristocratic existence that Baroness Jean Trumpington did, including doing the obligatory turn at the Queen Charlotte’s Ball and a stint at Bletchley Park as a ‘code-breaker’ (see post ’95 Glorious Years!’). Bridget and Trumpers will have known each other – Trumpers was bound to have sniffed her out, what with her being related to a Duchess.

 

There were two others involved in founding the Runnymede Trust along with Dipak Nandy – Jim Rose and Anthony Lester QC.

Jim Rose was yet another alumni of New College, Oxford and worked for the intelligence services during WWII, in the RAF and at Bletchley Park. Rose was a journalist with Reuters and was literary editor of ‘The Observer’, 1948-50. At this time, Waldorf Astor, yet another graduate of New College, Oxford – and husband of Nancy Astor and a friend of David Lloyd George -owned ‘The Observer’. In 1951 Rose moved to Zurich where he formed the International Press Institute, through which he got to know well virtually all the editors of the major newspapers and their senior journalists.

In 1962 Rose returned to England and was invited by Philip Mason, civil servant and Director of the Institute for Race Relations (1958-69), to become the Director of the Survey of Race Relations, a five year study of post-war immigration in Britain. This was published in 1969 as ‘Colour and Citizenship’ and in 1968 Rose co-founded the Runnymede Trust. Philip Mason was a member of the Athenaeum, of which Jimmy Savile was also a member – the Athenaeum is favoured by Top Doctors and academics.

Jim Rose was Educational Director of the Westminster Press Group, 1970-74 and then Chairman of Penguin Books until 1980.

The Runnymede Trust was able to get off the ground because Anthony Lester QC had a commitment of $5000 pa for three years from ‘a liberal East Coast Foundation’ – who this was I have not yet found out, but it’s odd that their name isn’t up in flashing neon in view of the influence and status of the Runnymede Trust – provided that this was matched by a British Foundation. Jim Rose persuaded the Rowntree Trust to take up the challenge.

Anthony Lester QC is a barrister and Liberal Democrat peer who was educated at Trinity College, Cambridge and Harvard. He was involved with drafting the race relations legislation in the 60s and 70s and was the Chairman of the sub-committee of the Campaign Against Racial Discrimination. Lester was a member of the: Society of Labour Lawyers; Fabian Society; Council of Race Relations; British Overseas Fellowship; National Committee for Commonwealth Immigrants. He was Chair of the Fabian Society, 1972-73 and Chair of the Runnymede Trust, 1991-93. Lester is Patron of the FPA (Family Planning Association) and a member of the Joint Committee on Human Rights. Lester was special advisor to Roy Jenkins at the Home Office in the 1970s – when Jenkins was concealing the paedophile gang  in north Wales in his capacity as Home Secretary (see post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part I), although it’s obvious from Lester’s other affiliations that Roy was certainly not the only person known to Anthony Lester who was concealing child abuse or the associated abuses in the mental health services.

Anthony Lester was, along with Roy, as one of the founders of the SDP in 1981.

Lester was given his peerage in 1993. Once those five witnesses to the activities of the paedophile gang in north Wales were safely dead after the firebomb attack (see post ‘The Silence Of The Welsh Lambs’), once Sir Peter Morrison had stepped down as MP for Chester, once Mary Wynch had been shafted by Michael Howard at the Home Office (see post ‘A Few Of The Relevant Politicians Re Mary Wynch’s Case’) and once the North Wales Police had satisfied themselves that there was not a paedophile ring in operation in north Wales. The North Wales Police who at the time employed Superintendent Gordon Anglesea who later went to prison for abusing children in care in his capacity as a member of the paedophile ring which did not exist.

In 2007 Lester acted as Jack Straw’s advisor when Straw was Secretary of State for Justice.

Lord Lester practices at Blackstones Chambers. His colleagues there include Michael Beloff QC. Michael Beloff is a friend of the Blairs and was the legal advisor who in 1996 ordered the insurers of Clwyd County Council which ran the ‘child protection’ services investigated by the Jillings Inquiry to withold from everyone (even the Councillors) – and then pulp – all copies of the Jillings Report on the grounds that what happened to the children was indefensible. The insurers were also told to tell the members of the Council who commissioned the Jillings investigation that if any of them did find out what was in the Report and they publicised it, the insurers would withdraw cover and the Councillors themselves would be personally liable if any former child in care sued – the Councillors were warned that they would lose their homes if this happened. The insurers also recommended that Malcolm King, the Chair of the Social Services Committee, be sacked if he continued to make a nuisance of himself bellyaching about child abuse. If any of the kids who had been beaten and repeatedly raped or buggered did try and sue after all this, they’d have difficulty – because within hours of the Jillings Report being submitted, Clwyd County Council was abolished and ceased to exist.

The insurance company which provided cover for Clwyd County Council also provided cover for the North Wales Police.

Michael Beloff’s father Max Beloff was the historian who some years previously had reviewed a book on local governance by Ioan Bowen Rees and described it as ‘essential reading’. Ioan Bowen Rees was Chief Executive of Gwynedd County Council whilst the paedophile ring shared with neighbouring Clwyd County Council raged within its Social Services Department and when Alison Taylor, the social worker who blew the whistle on the child abuse, was sacked.

Michael Beloff is also the President of Trinity College, Oxford and questions were asked years ago when he seemed to be admitting students with a not particularly impressive academic record but a great deal of money. Even more questions were asked when a student called Euan Blair decided that it would be a good idea to apply there, what with his mum being a good mate of the President. Something obviously backfired though because Euan went to Bristol University in the end, which was why Cherie ended up purchasing properties there with the help of the crook that was the boyfriend of her lifestyle guru Carol Caplin. I was delighted to see that when Cherie was forced to explain herself regarding this matter, she gave a tearful interview on TV concerning the difficulty of being a working woman ‘juggling’. I expect that Cherie believes that she’s better at multi-tasking than Tony because of her corpus callosum – after all she’ll have read all those articles in ‘Cosmopolitan’, in their ‘neurobiology for fuckwits’ series.

 

Trustees of the Runnymede upon its foundation included Lord Jock Campbell, Lord Edward Boyle and Archbishop Trevor Huddlestone.

Lord Jock Campbell was the first Chairman of the Runnymede Trust, 1968-80. Jock Campbell’s family owned sugar plantations in British Guiana and his great-great-grandfather was a slave owner. In 1934, after Eton and Oxford, Jock went to British Guiana to manage the family estates. He was sufficiently horrified by the working and living conditions that he witnessed to embark on a programme of reform. Many years later in the Lords in 1971 Jock Campbell dissociated himself from his ancestors.

However Jock did inherit a great deal of money from his family – dosh which could be traced back to that slave trade that his ancestors had been fully paid of adherents to – and he continued to receive a very generous income from the family’s interests in British Guiana. Jock was Chairman of the Commonwealth Sugar Exporters Association, 1950-84 and Chairman of Booker McConnell. He was Chairman of New Statesman and Nation and Chairman of the Milton Keynes Development Corporation, 1967-83. Jock was a member of the Fabian Society and in 1966 was given a peerage by Harold Wilson.

Jock Campbell was a friend of Ian Fleming who was related by marriage to Sir Charles Morrison, the older brother of Sir Peter Morrison. Before his death Fleming had a discussion with Jock regarding the ways of avoiding heavy taxation on his estate. Jock suggested that Bookers could act as bankers for Fleming to the benefit of both parties. Bookers acquired a 51% share of the profits of Goldmore Productions, the company handling the profits from Fleming’s books but not the film rights. Thus Bookers Authors Division was born, which later acquired the copyrights of other authors including Agatha Christie, Dennis Wheatley and Harold Pinter. The Booker Prize was launched in 1969 after publisher Jonathan Cape suggested that Bookers should sponsor a prize. So there are you are Radio 4, you’ll never be able to wax lyrical in a pretentious manner about Booker Prize winners again, it’s SLAVE TRADE MONEY at the root of it…

Lord Edward Boyle was the Conservative MP for Birmingham Handsworth, 1950-70 and was appointed Vice-Chancellor of Leeds University in 1970 when he stood down from Parliament. He received a peerage in the same year. Boyle was educated at Eton and Christ Church College, Oxford and worked at Bletchley Park. He was a Minister for Education, 1962-64. Boyle was a Trustee of the British Museum, 1970-81 and the Chairman of the Committee of Vice-Chancellors and Principals of UK Universities, 1977-79. It was noted in Boyle’s obituaries that he died ‘unmarried and childless’.

Archbishop Trevor Huddlestone was an English Anglican Bishop who was educated at Christ Church College, Oxford and Wells Theological College. Huddleston spent the 1940s in South Africa which is where he became involved with the anti-apartheid campaign. Huddlestone knew Archbishop Desmond Tutu when he was a boy and Tutu names Huddlestone as being a huge influence on him. Huddlestone also knew Hugh Masekala and was the person who gave him his first trumpet when he was 14. Huddlestone was close to Oliver Tambo, the President of the ANC between 1962 and 70, the years of exclusion. Huddlestone returned to the UK in 1956 and then between 1960-68 was Bishop of Masasi (in Tanzania). Between 1968-78 Huddlestone was Bishop of Stepney. In 1978 he became Bishop of Mauritius and later on in the same year he was appointed Archbishop of the Province of the Indian Ocean.He retired from episcopal office in 1983 but continued his anti-apartheid work – Huddlestone had become President of the Anti-Apartheid Movement in 1981. Huddlestone lived in Mirfield in West Yorkshire after his retirement – he had previously lived there as a young man.

In 1974 Huddlestone was questioned by the police regarding the sexual abuse of four boys who had been playing in Huddlestone’s office whose parents had reported Huddlestone to the police. The allegations were that Huddlestone had touched the boys indecently – Huddlestone didn’t deny his actions but stated that none of it was done with indecent intent. The police recommended charges of four counts of gross indecency. The matter was referred to the DPP Sir Norman Skelhorn, a man who had great difficulty prosecuting high profile people for child abuse no matter how overwhelming the evidence (see post ‘They Planned To Put Acid In All The Reservoirs’). Skelhorn decided not to charge Huddlestone after consulting senior figures in the Labour Party.

None of this was known to the public until the publication of Piers McGrandles biography of Huddleston in 2004 – McGrandles was part-time chaplain to Huddleston.  Desmond Tutu and Bishop Gerald Ellis (the Bishop of London whilst Huddlestone had been Bishop of Stepney) were greatly upset by the story and were convinced of Huddlestone’s innocence. Their explanation was that Huddlestone’s political enemies had set him up and that B.O.S.S., the South African Bureau of State Security, was behind it.

Huddlestone did have political enemies – Thatcher hated him, let alone B.O.S.S. and B.O.S.S. would do just about anything to their opponents, so it is possible that Huddlestone was smeared. However, as Normal Skelhorn demonstrated repeatedly, in the 1970s there was a huge reluctance to challenge yet alone prosecute ‘respectable’ men over allegations of child sexual abuse. If the police were recommending four charges of gross indecency, whatever Trevor Huddlestone was alleged to have done must have been quite serious and there was probably some very convincing evidence.

Jim Rose took over as Chairman of the Runnymede from Dipak Nandy and remained as Chairman until 1990, then Anthony Lester Chaired the Trust, 1991-93. Between 1993-98 Trevor Phillips was Chairman.

Trevor Phillips spent his childhood in north London and British Guyana and did a chemistry degree at Imperial College. Whilst at Imperial he was President of the Students Union and then became the first black President of the NUS, 1978-80, during the NUS’s Particularly Mad phase. Trevor’s associates at the NUS included future New Labour big wigs Charles Clarke and Peter Mandelson, both of whom know something about organised child abuse and wrongdoing in the NHS (see post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part IV’). Phillips worked with his mate Mandy again at LWT – Mandy was best man at Phillips’s first wedding in 1981. Phillips was a researcher and a reporter for LWT, 1980-86 and then Head of Current Affairs at LWT, 1992-94. Phillips wrote and produced ‘The London Programme’ for LWT and also worked on projects for the BBC and Channel 4. It was Phillips who gave Richard Littlejohn his first break in TV. Phillips established Pepper Productions, an independent TV production company from which he made a great deal of money. Through Mandy Trevor became friends with Blair and he joined the Labour Party in 1996.

Phillips was a Labour candidate for London Mayor but his plans in that direction fell apart when it was discovered that he had sent his daughters to very upmarket public schools – namely the North London Collegiate School and Westminster School. However the Labour Party did designate Trevor as a member of the London Assembly in 2000 – he was Chair of the Assembly until 2003, when he resigned his seat in order to take up the position of Chair of the CRE. The CRE was abolished in 2006 and replaced with the EHRC and Tevor was appointed Chair of that body – he remained Chair until 2012. A lot of people in the EHRC know a great deal about abuse and criminal activities involving vulnerable people. Ann Beynon who’s husband Leighton Andrews was at one point Minister for Public Service Delivery in the Welsh Gov’t – whilst criminal conduct went unhindered in the NHS in north Wales and when the social services and mental health services had been destroyed by those who had protected the paedophile gang fifteen years previously – was a member of the EHRC. So unbelievably was Rachel Perkins. Perkins is a clinical psychologist who was clinical director of Springfield Hospital, the psychiatric unit attached to St George’s Hospital Medical School and who then sat on the Board of the St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Whilst Perkins was clinical director of Springfield, staff there concealed child abuse and associated serious criminal activity, a number of patients were sexually assaulted and even murdered and at least one member of staff was murdered as well. A subsequent public inquiry condemned Springfield and suggested that the problems were such that the hospital was probably irretrievable. Whilst she was clinical director, Perkins ran a work scheme for ‘service users’ – one placement was found for one young woman as a pole dancer. Perkins herself is of course a lesbian feminist – the last place she will be working is in a strip joint. But then she doesn’t have to – she sat on the EHRC as a consequence of her ‘lived experience’ as a service user.

Trevor might be a black man – but more importantly very rich and a friend of Tony Blair and Mandy – but Rachel really claimed the street cred when she metamorphosed into a service user. Rachel had suffered from depression for many years and had taken a great deal of time off work – although she managed to write books about her Great Suffering whilst she was not going to work. Of course if Rachel really had been clinically depressed it is entirely understandable that she would need time off. But Perkins claimed to be so ill that she was literally never there  – but she remained as clinical director. Whilst people murdered each other. Rachel did finally step aside – I suspect it was the dreadful press coverage re Springfield that was behind that particular decision rather than Rachel’s putative poor health – and popped up on the Board of St George’s as the service user representative! I haven’t read much of Rachel’s work, but I’m wondering that if I did whether I might recognise some of it from other places. Because just before Rachel was appointed to the EHRC, I recognised part of something that Brown and I had published in an article that dear old Rachel had written. Feel free to reproduce this blog Rachel, I’ll be delighted.

Trevor’s time as Chair of the EHRC was not a smooth ride. Six commissioners walked out after expressing concern about his leadership and probity. Perhaps that’s how Rachel got in there.

In 2007 Trevor was awarded the Chevalier de la Legion d’Honnuer after he made a few comments following the race riots in France in 2005 that caused Sarkozy to insult black people who lived in the banlieue in Paris.

In 2010 Phillips was investigated concerning his attempts to influence the Joint Committee of Human Rights – a Parliamentary Select Committee – whilst they were writing a report on him. A Lords Committee cleared him of the allegations that had been levelled against him but described his behaviour as ‘inappropriate and ill-advised’.

Trevor Phillips is a Vice-President of the Royal Television Society – the RTS whose manager Tony Pilgrim remarked that it was a pity that one of their employees who was known to be a paedophile had been caught molesting a 10 year old boy and the RTS who employed manager Claire Price. The lovely Claire harassed and then unlawfully dismissed a close friend of mine who knew what happened to me in north Wales and wanted to make a documentary about it. The President of the RTS at the time was Sir Paul Fox, who was very anti-union and presumably a keen Thatcherite (see ‘Their Trade Is Fuckwittery’).

Among other things Trevor Phillips is: Deputy Chair of the Board of National Equality Standard; Chair of Green Park Diversity Analytics; Director of WebberPhillips; Director of Pepper Productions; member of the Board at the Barbican Arts Centre; member of the Council of Aldeburgh Music; Trustee of the Social Mobility Foundation. At present Trevor is President of the Partnership Council of the John Lewis Partnership.

For 28 years Trevor was married to Asha Bhownagary, a child psychotherapist. Asha trained at the Tavistock Clinic and has worked for education and social services, in a hospital paediatrics department and in a special care baby unit. She has a private practice and lectures at the Tavistock. I suspect that Trevor knows a great deal about the abuse of vulnerable people but Asha will know so much that she’ll be in a position to give evidence in Court. But they will of course both remain completely silent on such matters.

Lady Diana Brittan was Chair of the Runnymede Trust 1998-99. Diana is the widow of Leon Brittan, former Home Secretary and the man who was investigated by Operation Midland for sex offences. It was reported earlier this year that Lady Diana had received approx £100k in compensation – which was accompanied by a confidentiality clause – from the Metropolitan Police for them daring to investigate Leon. Thatcher appointed Leon as Minister of State at the Home Office in 1979 under Willie Whitelaw and then in 1983 Leon became Home Secretary himself. Whilst Leon was Home Secretary organised child abuse was concealed, the dossier naming Westminster figures who were allegedly molesting children  that was given to Leon by Geoffrey Dickens MP was ‘lost’, the police abused their powers repeatedly but action was never taken against them – there was a feeling that the police had become a private army of Thatcher’s Gov’t (see post ‘A Few Of The Relevant Politicians Re Mary Wynch’s Case’). Just about everything that was the responsibility of the Home Office was riddled with corruption under dear old Leon. Whilst Leon was Home Secretary the Home Office gave funding to PIE. Leon left the Cabinet as a result of the scrap over Westland and it has been alleged that he was the fall guy to prevent it being exposed that Thatcher had lied – Leon was given a job as a European Commissioner as compensation. Leon has been named repeatedly as a child abuser himself which is partly what caused him to come to the attention of Operation Midland – that and the allegation from a woman that he had raped her many years ago.

In 2002 ‘The Independent’ ran a toadying article about Diana, identifying her as a ‘new-style Tory wife’, explaining that she was actually very similar to Tony Blair: ‘She’s just where Tony is, she doesn’t act as a result of a traditional, party political, ideological perspective, but from a moral perspective. She does something because its the right thing to do.’ We all know how moral Tony is and how he had a penchant for doing the right thing. He was after all a pretty straight kind of guy – which will be why he lied to Parliament, was mates with Berlusconi and now acts as an advisor to various dictators and kleptocrats.

The Indie was writing about Diana because she had had an upsetting experience. In her capacity as Chair of the National Lottery Community Fund Diana had OK’d grants to what ‘The Daily Mail’ had described as ‘bizarre and politically correct’ causes and ‘The Daily Mail’ had unleashed a ‘hate campaign’ against her. Paul Dacre had become vexed that Diana had given her blessing to grants to a gay choir and an organisation breeding Andean guinea pigs, but the last straw for Dacre was the funding of an organisation helping unsuccessful asylum seekers fighting deportation. The hate campaign was unleashed – the Mail urged readers to WRITE TO DIANA’S OFFICE. That is what poor old Diana was having to deal with, which is what prompted the Indie to describe her as a ‘brave woman with a moral sense of what is right’.

Diana the Brave and Moral has had her fingers in many pies. She sat as a magistrate on the City of London bench from 1984 – whilst she was married to the Home Secretary whilst the police did what they like including amending statements in order to fit people up – and was appointed a member of the EOC in 1989 and then its Deputy Chair, 1994-96. Diana became Deputy Chair of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority in 1990 – whilst IVF clinics lied to their patients and generally fleeced them (see post ‘Every Sperm Is Sacred – Particularly In Scotland’). She was Chair of the Race in Europe Network, Chair of the European Union of Women, Chair of the OU Foundation and a member of the Lord Chancellor’s advisory committee on legal education and conduct.  The Indie mentions that Diana is a ‘committee person’ because those are the people who get things done and that the world of committees like people with good networks. Perhaps such as people who are married to other people who concealed serious crime for years and then popped over to Brussels to help out. I expect that Diana has had Dominique Strauss-Kahn to dinner – a delightful man…and Christine Lagarde as well, Christine who Woman’s Hour really loved and put on their Power List. The Christine who was found guilty of ‘negligence’ by the French courts regarding that business of the 403 million euros ‘arbitration’ in favour of Bernard Tapie and would have gone to prison except that she was MD of the IMF and you’re not allowed to put them in prison.

Between 1977-89 Diana was the managing editor of a ‘technical press agency’ – I wonder what sort of sins were involved there. Being the brave moral woman that she is, she ‘advised’ Jonathan Aitken after he was found guilty of perjury and was facing prison.

Diana is involved with the Carnegie UK Trust.

Diana and Leon kept a home in London where they troughed with the rich n famous, but they also had a home in Wensleydale, North Yorkshire, what with Leon being the MP for Richmond. The North Yorkshire which was the centre of a paedophile ring. William Hague succeeded Leon’s seat in Richmond, became Secretary of State for Wales despite all that boasting about being a Yorkshireman through and through and having shown bugger all interest in Wales. Upon his appointment he organised the cover-up into the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal which was the Waterhouse Inquiry. When William was running for the Tory Party leadership he found himself in urgent need of a wife – the Tories were expressing great concern that he was ‘single’, which seemed a little inconsistent in so far as they had no problem with Sir Peter Morrison attending sex parties with under-aged boys from children’s homes in north Wales. Fortunately for William a suitable woman arrived as if to order – Ffion, who had been a senior civil servant in the Welsh Office whilst it concealed criminal conduct in the children’s services and mental health services in north Wales. Love blossomed, although Thatcher was disgusted that Ffion and William shared an hotel room before they were married. I have just purchased a copy of Thatch’s autobiography ‘The Downing Street Years’ – I’ve only read the foreword and introduction so far but I’ve noticed that Peter Morrison is one of those thanked by Thatch in the book. I’m looking forward to reading Thatch’s fond reminiscences re her old mate Jimmy Savile.

Following Diana’s brief stint at the Runnymede, Samir Shah was Chair of the Runnymede Trust until 2009. Samir is a media executive who certainly ticks all the boxes. He was a student at St Catherine’s College, Oxford in the 1970s as were Mandelson and others known to this blog (see post ‘A Study In Tyranny). In 1977 Samir worked for the Intelligence Unit at the Home Office whilst Merlyn Rees was Home Secretary busy concealing criminal activity in north Wales, so he’ll have found out a few interesting things and made a few contacts there (see post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part III’). Then in 1979 he joined Mandy and the gang at LWT where he was a researcher and a producer on Eastern Eye, Credo, Weekend World and The London Programme. In 1987 Samir was appointed head of BBC’s TV current affairs and in 1994 he was appointed head of BBC’s Political Programmes, TV and Radio. In 1998 became Chief Exec of Juniper, an independent production company.

Shah was a Trustee for the Medical Foundation of the Victims of Torture, 2004-06 – who I seem to remember a few years ago were found to be harbouring a Top Doctor who had played a key role in the Rwandan Genocide. He was the former Chair of Screen West Midlands and  was a non-executive Director of the BBC Board, 2007-10. Shah is on the Board of BAFTA, is or was Deputy Chair at the V&A Museum and in 2014 was appointed Chair of the Geffrye Museum. He is a visiting Prof at Nottingham University and sits on the advisory panel on Oxford University’s Humanities Division. Samir was also on the Advisory Group of the dear old Royal Television Society’s Cambridge Convention in 2015.

Samir Shah was followed as Chair of the Runnymede by Chris Jones who is at present still in post. Chris Jones is another broadcaster and media executive…

 

So those are the Chairs of the Runnymede Trust. What about the Directors? Well obviously Dipak Nandy was in place until 1973, but then he handed over the reigns to others. The Runnymede has had a few Directors with CV’s and networks as interesting as Dipak.

Usha Prashar was Director, 1977-84. Usha was born in Kenya but came to the UK – Yorkshire – with her family in the 1960s. She went to the independent Wakefield Girls School and then Leeds University, graduating in 1970. A post-graduate course in Social Administration at Glasgow University followed. Directing the Runnymede Trust certainly launched Usha into the action. She was a Fellow of the Policy Studies Institute – a think tank which later merged with Westminster University – between 1984-86 and was then appointed as Director of NCVO – the umbrella organisation for so many charitable organisations concealing serious wrongdoing. Usha was non-executive Chair of the Parole Board, 1997-2000. That was when the Parole Board appointed Colin Berry, David Mawson and Chris Hunter – three Top Doctors who concealed the abuses of psychiatry and the associated paedophile gang in north Wales – as members, as well as a number of other very questionable people.

Usha was appointed a Civil Service Commissioner in 1990 and was First Civil Service Commissioner, 2000-2005. She was a non-executive director of Channel 4, 1992-99 and a non-executive director of UNITE Group plc, 2001-04. UNITE Group plc is ‘the UK’s leading manager and developer of student accommodation’. So they’ll be the ones who built those extravagantly luxurious apartments which were ruthlessly marketed to students including those who couldn’t afford them and ended up in financial trouble. Never mind the quality of your courses, just look at the accommodation that you’ll live in if you come to study here… Usha became a Governor of De Montfort University in 1996 and was Chancellor, 2001-2006. In recent years after the arrival of a new Vice-Chancellor, DMU has became a much happier less dysfunctional place. Whilst Usha was on board however a lot of very odd things went on at DMU and a number of recent graduates ended up in scandals, including a social worker who was caught illegally smuggling a baby into the UK which she had purchased in Africa. The staff at the time kept flagging up that things were unravelling on the ground, but they were ignored.

Usha was also appointed a Trustee of the BBC World Service Trust in 2002 and a non-executive Director of ITV plc in 2005. She is or was President of the Royal Commonwealth Society and Deputy Chair of the British Council. She was Chair of the National Literacy Trust, 2001-05.

Usha served on the Hutton Inquiry into Iraq. The inquiry into the conduct of Usha’s friend Tony Blair who had given Baroness Usha her peerage in 1999.

Usha is a Trustee of Cumberland Lodge, ‘an educational charity initiating fresh debate on the burning questions facing society’. The website of  Cumberland Lodge has no sign of anything educational or anything remotely fresh, although the slogan ‘creative thinking and inclusive dialogue’ is emblazoned across the site – but they do hold their meetings in a lovely castle and there’s plenty of photos of that. The castle in question is Windsor Castle. That’s so inclusive that I might drop into a meeting of Cumberland Lodge myself.

The intellectual powerhouse that is Usha is also a Governor of the Ditchley Foundation, which was established to ‘promote international understanding and relations, especially Anglo-American’. The Ditchley Foundation was founded in 1958 by Sir David Wills, a descendant of W.D. and H.O. Wills, the tobacco barons. It is based in Ditchley Park, another splendid building for Usha to do her thinking in, near Chipping Norton. So Rebekah Brooks and Cameron are just down the road then.

The Chair of the Ditchley Foundation is Lord George Robertson, Secretary of State for Defence under Blair, 1997-99 and then NATO General Secretary, 1999-2003. That went well then. The Chairman of the Ditchley Foundation between 2000-09 was Sir John Major, former PM, one time bedfellow of Edwina Currie and the protector of the paedophiles of north Wales via the vehicle of William Hague.

The Director of the Ditchley Foundation from 2010-16 was Sir John Holmes, a former diplomat who also held a senior role with the UN. Sir John was Principal Private Secretary to Blair whilst Blair was PM and he was also involved in the N Ireland peace talks – in which whatever happened at the Kincora Boys Home was used as a negotiating tool. Sir John Holmes has just been appointed Chair of the Electoral Commission.

The Director of the Ditchley Foundation, 1999-04 was Sir Nigel Broomfield, a former diplomat who was Chairman of Leonard Cheshire Disability, 2004-09.

Virtually all the Directors are of this ilk – former diplomats who have done a stint with the UN and who often have links to defence officials.

What about Usha’s fellow Governors at the Ditchley Foundation? Here are the names of some of them:

Lord Adonis, David Cameron, Margaret Beckett, Virginia Bottomley, Lord Carrington, Robin Butler, Shami Chakrabarty, Menzies Campbell, David Hunt, Geoffrey Howe, Neil Kinnock, David Miliband, Pauline Neville-Jones, Malcolm Rifkind, Jack Straw, Shirley Williams, Peter Jay, Paul Boateng.

There is only one question to be asked – WHERE IS DR DEATH?

 

Ann Dummett was Director of the Runnymede between 1984-87. Ann went to Somerville College and was married to the philosopher Sir Michael Dummett. Ann and Michael were high profile anti-racism campaigners and along with the MP for Oxford Evan Luard founded the Oxford Committee for Racial Integration (previously the Oxfordshire Council for Community Relations). Ann then worked at the Institute for Race Relations and for the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants.

Michael Dummett was Wykeham Professor of Logic at Oxford, 1979-82 and whilst he held that position was also a Fellow of New College – where else? Dummett also held teaching posts at Birmingham University, UC Berkeley, Stanford University, Princeton University and Harvard University. In 1944 Dummet converted to Catholicism and enthusiastically engaged in Catholic debates.

Evan Luard, the MP with whom the Dummetts campaigned and worked, was a graduate of Kings College, Cambridge. In 1950 he joined the Foreign Service but resigned in 1956, in protests at Britain’s involvement in the Suez Crisis. He became a research fellow at St Antony’s College, Oxford in 1957 and was a Labour Councillor on Oxford County Council, 1958-61. Luard then served as Labour MP for Oxford, 1966-70 and again, 1974-79. He was Parliamentary Under-Secretary for State in the Foreign Office, 1969-70 under Foreign Secretary Michael Stewart and again, 1974-79 – under dear old Dr Death.

Evan Luard was sufficiently attached to Dr Death to follow him into the SDP shortly after Shirl et al founded it in 1981. Luard contested the 1983 General Election for as the SDP candidate – he was deselected in 1987 in favour of Chris Huhne, but I haven’t found out why.

The Rev Ken Leech was the Director who followed Ann Dummett – Ken Leech was Director until 1991. The Rev Ken was an Anglican priest and a Christian Socialist who was born and grew up in the Cheshire/Lancashire area. He was inspired in 1956 after he heard Trevor Huddlestone speak.

In 1958 Ken moved to the East End of London where he lived whilst he studied at Kings College, London. In 1961 he began his theological studies at Trintiy College, Oxford whilst at the same time training for the priesthood at St Stephen’s House. He was ordained in 1965. He then spent many years working in some of the poorest parishes in London, in places like Hoxton (1965-67), Soho (1967-71) and Bethnal Green (1974-79). The Rev Ken took a special interest in drug addicts, prostitutes and homeless young people. In 1967 he set up the Soho Drugs Group. It was Ken who in 1969 – along with Anton-Wallich-Clifford and the Simon Community – established Centrepoint, which dealt with youth homelessness. Centrepoint’s first Patron was Diana, Princess of Wales.

The Rev Ken spent most of the years between 1965 and 2004 working on the ground  with the very people who would have been witnesses to the abuse of kids in care and the trafficking of them into prostitution and the involvement that some Westminster figures had in this, as well as the collusion on the part of the mental health services, the police and the legal and criminal justice system. There is no way that the Rev Ken did not know about this. Anyone who listens to homeless young people, care leavers, drug addicts, prostitutes and mental health patients finds out about it. I did and my CV is not half as good as Ken’s in that respect. Just on one occasion, in London in 1987, Brown and me stopped to help a young homeless man who had been taken ill in a subway after going overboard sniffing glue. Because we stopped to help we were within minutes surrounded by his mates and his girlfriend – they were kids in care who had run away, some of them from Swansea. We found out about it after one brief stop to help their friend. If you help people having a hard time, you do find out what is happening to them, it is dishonest for people who work with those folk to claim that they ‘didn’t know’. The Rev Ken will have almost certainly been given the names of the members of the Westminster Paedophile Ring – repeatedly. Furthermore in Hoxton 1965-67 the Krays and their notorious mum were still living in Vallance Road, Ken will have been their neighbour – I’m sure that he noticed.

Ken’s obituaries tell us that he fought against the NF and other racist and fascist groups in the East End, that he campaigned for CND, for gender equality, for gay and lesbian rights. But Ken never opened his mouth about the organised sexual abuse of kids in care, the associated criminality in swathes of ‘respectable’ society – or about sexual abuse within the Church. But then if he had have done this, he wouldn’t have become Director of the Runnymede Trust. Or started up the Jubilee Group with Rowan Williams. Or sat on the Church of England’s Board of Social Responsibility. Or indeed have persuaded Diana to become Patron of Centrepoint. Neither would his ventures have received funding.

 

Sukhvinder Kaur-Stubbs was Director of the Runnymede, 1996-2000. Sukhvinder had all the ingredients for success as measured by ‘The Guardian’ – she was a Punjabi girl who grew up in Birmingham after her dad arrived in the UK with only a few fivers in his pocket, who got into Oxford and then learned the disciplines of management, marketing, budgeting and PR in the public, private and voluntary sectors. Obviously at the age of 33 it was inevitable that Sukhvinder would be appointed as Director of the Runnymede and that ‘The Guardian’ would write a profile which obsessed about the colour of her silk blouse, her jewellery and her ‘power hairstyle’ (which sounds like the sort of thing that Hillary Clinton probably has).

After four years at the Runnymede Trust, Sukhvinder became CEO of the Barrow Cadbury Trust, but she left there in a hurry in 2009 on the grounds that she wanted to spend more time with her adopted daughter. It was probably very much more preferable than working in what the Third Sector has now become.

Sukhvinder was/is also a member of the Council at Birmingham University, Chairwoman of the European Network Against Racism, a non-executive Director of Severn Trent, a member of the Board of the Black Country Development Corporation and of Advantage West Midlands, as well as a Director of the Home Group Ltd.

Sukhvinder is a Director at Swan Housing Group and Chair of the Social Care Institute for Excellence. I have laughed at the Social Care Institute for Excellence and taken its name in vain for years because it was one of the key vehicles that promoted the idea of ‘service user involvement’ in mental health. Whilst service users were mistreated, abused, unlawfully denied treatment, fitted up for crimes that they had not committed and died, whilst no complaints about anything anywhere were ever investigated properly, the SCIE continued publishing laughable guides to service user involvement. The guides aimed at service users themselves contained illustrations of cartoon-like characters sitting around in meetings – there was always an Asian lady among them – with think or speech balloons saying things like ‘what if I don’t feel comfortable?’ or ‘should I ask my social worker about this?’ and a few lines about how as a service user you were now empowered. As the media gradually moves towards a tiny bit of honesty regarding the state of social care in the UK, I think that we should now be asking where the fucking excellence ever was, why the SCIE were allowed to publish lies for so many years, who established that organisation and who footed the bill for the mountains of crap which emanated from it. Perhaps Professor Peter Beresford could enlighten us.

Recently Sukhvinder has become a non-executive Director of the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust, an organisation recently created out of other NHS organisations – I suspect because the previous organisations were scandal ridden and bankrupt, so a rebranding exercise was needed. Sukhvinder’s colleagues on the Trust Board are the regulation collection of Angels who have undertaken MBAs and moved into management, managers and social workers previously affiliated to organisations where the most terrible disasters and scandals have occurred, accountants and former employees of the Dept of Health.

 

So that’s an account of a few free radicals, some of whom should not be free at all after their role in colluding with some of the most serious child abusers that have operated in the UK.

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

  1. Max Beloff Institute of Economic Affairs Uni of Buckingham and John Paulley Mengele steroid researcher of Ipswich whose research asset GP disciples “Ipswich Vocational Training Initiative” included Dr Lower of Stowmarket (the late) who Winterkey are looking to see if he was GP to “Darren” the source so far discredited in allegations re Henniker Estate and Peter Righton.

    1. Max and Michael Beloff seem to have been involved in a great many things which have been kept well under the bushel.

      As for the people who came forward with ‘fantasies’ about being abused by high profile politicians, I think that someone ought to shine a very bright light indeed on all the Top Doctors and others who dismissed them as ‘fantasists’. I have recently accessed an insiders account of the Cleveland Scandal. I had always been prepared to give Marietta Higggs and co the benefit of the doubt and consider that they may well have been genuinely misled. My God they were not – a grade A bloody conspiracy from the beginning with links to those we know and love, absolutely horrifying. The timing of Esther’s con that was Childwatch was no coincidence – of course Esther had no idea at all about Savile, about her former bedfellow Nicholas Fairbain, about Lambeth Social Services who employed her sister or about Brent Social Services who employed her sister’s friend…

      Horrible, horrible people. I am just correlating the dates of events, mapping a few careers etc, then I’ll be writing a post about it all.

      By the way – I always wondered why the nonenity that was Liam Donaldson ended up as CMO on Blair’s watch. Donaldson wasn’t a high profile Top Doctor, he screwed up repeatedly as CMO, was obviously out of his depth and couldn’t even pompous for Britain in the way that is essential for a CMO. What Liam was however was the former head honcho in the Northern Region Health Authority whilst Marietta et al had caused havoc to distract attention from the fact that nearly every social services dept in the country had been infiltrated by paedophiles, that the gangs were linked together and that everybody was covering everybody else’s arse by claiming that the danger to children was from their own families and Joe Public, rather than from the welfare services themselves.

      Oh and Marietta’s friend and mentor Dr Jane Wynne – who trained all the others in the ‘diagnosis’ of ‘sexual abuse’ in so many kids – worked at St James Hospital Leeds. As did a man called Jimmy Savile. So Jane certainly knew all about people being abused.

      In my post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part IV’ I mapped the Blair/Mandelson/Milburn network in the north east. I’m sorry to say that I was most remiss -I forgot to mention dear old David Miliband who’s constituency was in South Shields. David’s hopeless brother Ed’s constituency was in Doncaster – the site of another big paedophile gang in the midst of Savile-land. That’s the Ed who was Harriet’s gofer for so long but found himself having to tell Harriet what to do what with Harriet being so clueless.

      No wonder the Milibands were constructed as the heirs to Blair although they were a pair of weirdos who didn’t live up to their reputations as geniuses.

      1. My thinking is this. A dream is a metaphor of truth ? When we consider the lurid story of say landrovers roped to tear children apart. Maybe we should analyse the dream like story ? These people may have been coshed with mellaril, cortisones, truth drugs etc and had their brain processes well ferked up in childhood.

        I have watched this happen. A man who was chemical coshed with mellaril as a child. Comes up with hoods in woods abuse story. As he iteratively recounted his story we had other discussions such as IRA etc. He was for ever checking ordnance survey maps and trying to work out where the house with the green door was where he says he was abused. And I became to notice detail creep in. Yes it was definitely Garland Farm where the two men in the car would stop on the road. The men who took him to the house with the green door. (Garland Plan IRA terrorism recently discussed) And I noticed this a few times including Epping Forest and other locations … Thetford and so on.

        So I think there is more to this than police have sussed. That is what may have happened with Exaro prompting the complainant.

        1. I have said before I liked the Winter Key detectives. I think they are open to consider the aspects. I know they are checking out Darren GP Stowmarket re Henniker estate at my request.

          1. Richard –
            I think I’ve found another friend of the paedophiles’ protector and prosecutor of innocent people who’ve pissed off the Top Doctors that was Sir Patrick Mayhew.

            It’s Louis Blom-Cooper QC! I’m fairly sure that it was Mayhew who appointed Blom-Cooper as the first Independent Commissioner for Holding Centres in N Ireland. Blom-Cooper remained in the post until 1999.

            Old Louis was certainly a good mate of the paedophiles’ friends. He was Chair of the Mental Health Acts Commission, 1987-94 – whilst the corrupt William Bingley was appointed Chief Exec, whilst they failed to investigate my complaints about Dafydd and the paedophiles’ friends’ criminal activities and whilst they colluded with the attempts of Dafydd et al to frame me for serious offences.

            It was of course Louis along with Robert Bluglass who investigated the abuses of Dafydd’s pals at Ashworth, as patients were beaten, raped and killed, whilst the National Front supporting ‘nurses’ of the POA ran the place.

            Louis also Chaired the Inquiry into the death of Jasmine Beckford which was the catalyst for Esther and the nutters in Cleveland to spring into action.

            Louis read law at Kings College London and between 1962-84 was an academic at London University. He had previously been a journo for The Observer.

            Louis Chaired the Press Complaints Commission.

            Louis was involved in the foundation of Amnesty International in 1961, is Patron of Prisoners Abroad and is a Trustee of the Howard League for Penal Reform.

            He was a judge in the Court of Appeal of Jersey and Guernsey, 1988-96.

            Louis was one of those who made a great deal of money from his work as Counsel to the Saville Inquiry. Louis is familiar with another Savile too – Jimmy! Louis is a member of the Athenaeum – as was dear old Sir Jimmy. Jimmy was famously offered his job at Broadmoor over a meeting in the Athenaeum with some civil service mandarins. Ashworth was one of the hospitals into which Jimmy would drop in whenever he felt like it.

            Two of the problems that Louis was required to investigate at Ashworth was the use of child porn and children being taken into the hospital to visit paedophiles. However did that sort of thing happen then Louis???

  2. In 1984/85 the London Borough of Southwark spent £390k on placements for children at the Bryn Alyn Community and continued sending kids there even after they had reported being abused. Kids were transferred from a home in Southwark called The Hollies – a suspected location of abuse by Jimmy Savile – to Bryn Alyn. The Director of Social Services in Southwark at the time was Dennis Simpson.

    Dennis had previously been the Assistant Director of Social Services in Brent when Jasmine Beckford was murdered whilst under Brent’s care. The Director was Esther’s mate Valerie Howarth who became Chief Exec of Childline and then one of Blair’s people’s peers.

    After the disaster at Southwark, in 1999 Dennis was commissioned to review Birmingham’s Social Services. Dennis’s report wasn’t that damning but he did notice a few problems – although ‘service users’ thought the service was great. Since Dennis’s review there have been numerous scandals and deaths in relation to failures in Birmingham Social Services. I believe that they are now in special measures – but then more than 30 local authority social services depts in England now are.

    Dunno whether Jess Phillips – that well-known Everywoman who spent her childhood running around the streets of Yardley barefoot whilst her mum did Blair’s bidding in her capacity as Chief Exec of the NHS Confederation – would like to comment re Birmingham…

    As for Dennis – he later became the Programme Development Group Chair for the Social Care Institute of Excellence.

    The MP for Southwark whilst Dennis sent kids to Bryn Alyn to be beaten and trafficked for sex was Liberal and then Lib Dem Simon Hughes – now Lord Hughes. Simon was one of the MPs who signed the early day motion opposing the closure of Garth Angharad, the hospital for ‘mentally abnormal criminals’ in Gwynedd – where kids who had complained about being abused in care were sent. Garth Angharad was a private facility owned by Paul Hett, a struck off solicitor who owned other homes and schools which were investigated by the Waterhouse Inquiry. Even Waterhouse had to admit that Hett was completely unsuitable to be near kids.

    What did you think you were doing Simon?

  3. I have just been catching up on the story which dominated the news bulletins yesterday – the ‘breakthrough’ that UCL have made re Huntington’s Disease. Yes, a cure has been discovered! Not only that – but the cure for Huntington’s that UCL has discovered probably holds the key to other neurodegenerative diseases as well! I heard the news again and again, on the morning news, on the evening news, on the late night news and it was all over the Guardian. The Guardian website has been good enough to provide us with an MRI image ‘of a normal brain’.

    Huntington’s is a horrible illness and I thought that I’d actually read the reports to see what progress had been made. The reality is of course rather more sober than the media reports. I am used to journos who know sod all about biomedical science getting excited at PR pieces from Top Doctors who know that they are talking to people who can’t understand a word that they are saying, but the Top Docs have surpassed themselves this time. The trial that has been carried out by UCL was too small and not long enough to show whether the patients’ clinical symptoms had improved – as was admitted by UCL.

    So whatever UCL have found it, is NOT the ‘cure for Huntington’s disease’.

    So who has been responsible for all the bullshit?

    The person who conducted the trial at UCL – in collaboration with Ionis Pharmaceuticals – was Prof Sarah Tabrizi. Prof Tabrizi is associated with a number of institutions which have recently been named on this blog, including of course UCL.

    Prof Tabrizi leads a neuroscience research unit which was opened by Prof Michael Arthur, who has been President and Provost of UCL since 2012. Michael Arthur is a Top Doctor who spent much of his career at Southampton Medical School – er, yes, his colleagues from Southampton featured on this blog recently. Michael Arthur was VC of Leeds University before moving to UCL. Whilst he was at Leeds, Arthur was the subject of a no confidence vote by the Leeds branch of UCU after he put forward plans to slash the number of academic staff.

    Michael Arthur was also involved in the 2015 spat over Prof Tim Hunt. Tim Hunt was an old buffer – but nonetheless a very eminent old buffer – from UCL who made a number of comments at a conference which were misrepresented by a journalist who had also lied on her own CV. Tim Hunt was pilloried in the media as a misogynist old git who had a problem with women scientists, despite many of his female co-workers coming forward to say that they honestly had not ever had a problem with him. Hunt was forced out of UCL by, among others, Michael Arthur. It was later demonstrated that Tim Hunt had not made some of the comments attributed to him. Michael Arthur was one of those who ensured that Tim Hunt remained excluded.

    Prof Michael Arthur – as well as Sarah Tabrizi – have very good reason to want the general public to believe that they’ve found the cure for Huntington’s and probably Alzheimers as well. Arthur is an advisor for the Dept of Health; was Chair of the Russell Group, 2009-12; is Chair of the Advisory Group for National Specialised Services; is a member of the Council at the MRC; is a Council member for Industry and Higher Education.

    There is of course a grade A punch up currently happening between the Top Doctors and the Gov’t re dosh for the NHS. Bob Kerslake threw his toys out of the pram and resigned as Chair of Kings College NHS Trust because his poor old heart was breaking at what the Gov’t was doing to the NHS. Hours later Kings was put into special measures. For all the hype, Kings is one of the most troubled Trusts in England and Kerslake knew it. Kerslake has spent his recent years as a senior civil servant – Kerslake really is not a Man of the People. He is a highly paid mandarin who was part of the problem and did not resolve the chaos at Kings. Perhaps a few other Bob Kerslakes would like to resign, there’s an awful lot of them.

    So just at the point that Caring Bob resigns in despair, UCL discovers the cure for neurodegenerative diseases! Except that they haven’t and they know it.

    Somebody else stands to benefit from UCL’s lies re cures for Huntington’s as well – the third biggest drug company in the world, Roche, who have just paid the $45 million licence fee to take the wonder cure discovered by Sarah Tabrizi’s team forward for a major clinical trial, one which will be big enough and long enough to demonstrate whether patients’ symptoms do improve. Whether Roche will be completely honest and transparent when they receive the results of that trial remains to be seen.

    Roche manufactured Larium, the anti-malarial which caused havoc because it also caused psychosis in many patients who had never been psychotic before. Everyone remained in deep denial about Larium for a long time, but in the end they just had to admit that there was a problem. Roche also manufactured Roaccutane – anyone remember those suicides that were attributed to adolescent angst? Until it was admitted that there was indeed a correlation between the suicides and people who had taken Roaccutane.

    Roche – full name Hoffman-La Roche – pleaded guilty in 1999 to participating in a worldwide conspiracy to raise and fix prices for vitamins sold in the USA and globally. Hoffman-La Roche paid $500 million in criminal fines in the US.

    Hoffman-La Roche is currently expanding its activities in joint research projects within the framework of the Innovative Medicines Initiative of the EEPIA and the European Commission. Is there perhaps anyone at UCL who sits on any influential committees related to that Initiative?

    One more Interesting Fact about Professor Michael Arthur – between 2003-04, he Chaired the cell and molecular panel at the Wellcome Trust. My recently blog post ‘A Trabant That Wants To Be A Ferrari’ told the story of Professor Sir Salvadore Moncada who, as a student, led a terrorist group in El Salvador in the late 60s. Moncada was imprisoned and then expelled from the country and used a contact at the Royal College of Surgeons to begin a new life in the UK as a pharmacologist. Moncada’s colleagues in London – some of whom had been involved with research fraud and criminal misconduct – told others that Moncada was ‘Spanish’. Moncada built his reputation at the Wellcome Research Laboratories. Moncada established the Wolfson Institute at UCL in 1996 and is an honorary fellow of UCL.

    UCL – if you are worried about your reputation as a consequence of what I am publishing about you, would it not be more sensible to stop the lies and dodgy practices, rather than simply ramping them up and using gullible journalists as your vehicle?

  4. Sally I have made a FOI request for a list of the drugs used in high security institutions (sorry well run hospitals ) and prisons . There are as you know high numbers of individuals who kill themselves in such places. As they hadn’t replied within the specified 28 days
    have repeated the request which has achieved a holding reply. How many more deaths are going to be caused as a result of the toxic drugs they are forcibly injected with or coerced into taking ? Well so what they are all too dispensible by such as UCL which doesn’t spend a penny farthing on the search for ‘safer’ drugs.Some of them are known to cause violence as well as suicide – how useful – another mentally ill violent individual . Regarding the outrageous crap re Huntingdon’s sad and horrible though it is – there are a relatively small number of people suffering from it compared with other illnesses so to big that up when there’s not even a potential cure in the pipeline was disgusting and actually cruel towards those who may inherit it.

    1. Yes I heard a Charlotte Raven being interviewed – although I don’t know if it was THE Charlotte Raven, Julie Burchill’s ex-partner – who had Huntington’s, absolutely over the moon at the idea that even if the wonder-drug didn’t arrive in time for her, it would be there to help her children who may well have inherited the disorder. These media articles really have purveyed false hope. But then I knew a 10 yr old boy years ago who’s stepdad had schizophrenia – massively aggravated by the total neglect by the dear old Hergest Unit – who excitedly told his dad that a cure for schizophrenia had been found after watching nonsense on the TV.

      UCL – and all the other Top Doctors joining in the party – know damn well that they are nowhere near ‘discovering’ what these articles are claiming and UCL knew how the media reports would be presented. Perhaps Salvador Moncada’s mate Patrick Vallance, Head of R&D at GSK, soon to be the Gov’ts Chief Scientific Advisor, would like to put out a statement regarding the sober truth? When Vallance was interviewed on The Life Scientific on Radio 4 about eighteen months ago he was discussing drug development and mentioned in passing that we are nowhere near a ‘cure’ for schizophrenia – and drugs companies won’t invest in dementia drugs either, because there is a lot more science to be done and it will cost far more than the drug companies want to spend before they see a return.

      I’d love to know why Roche have handed over the millions for the clinical trial to expand on the UCL work – I can smell a rat here. The UCL trial only involved just over 40 people – that is a very small trial, not even a PhD thesis. Furthermore the trial didn’t involve exciting results re the effect of a drug on patients’ symptoms per se – the thing that has got everybody excited seems to be unexpected findings in the level of a ‘toxin’ – don’t know which ‘toxin’, my info only came from the press release – in, I think the CSF (at least I think it was the CSF). It was this that caused people to feed manure to journalists.

      Roche are not idiots, they have invested $45 million to investigate SOMETHING, but not what the journos think that they will be investigating. Somebody really needs to do some digging here. UCL felt able to conduct neuroscientific research into ‘Mindfulness’ – I watched the mindfulness fraud in action years ago, but you wouldn’t have had to have had a ring side seat like me to know that it was bollocks. Any intelligent person reading the publications of Mark Williams et al would see holes everywhere – particularly the sort of scientists that work in neuroscience at UCL, they are not the sort of people to waste their time concentrating on the breath and living in the moment. However they do know that a load of scientifically illiterate MPs have embraced mindfulness, they know that it has been approved by the rigged committees of NICE and they knew that they’d get the dosh if they climbed on board.

      Sarah Jane Blakemore is a neuroscientist at UCL – her dad is of course Colin Blakemore, who for years was head of the MRC. That’s the Colin Blakemore whose animal experiments worried even other animal researchers. I think it was Sara Jane Blakemore who was involved in the mindfulness stuff – I remember seeing her name.

      Yes, irresponsible prescribing of anti-psychotics is doing great harm, but it’s only Dangerous Psychiatric Patients who are Attacking Angels being disabled or killed, so no-one’s that bothered. Years ago so many patients at Broadmoor – in particular black ones – died from the effects of ‘medication’ that the patients alleged that there was a conspiracy on the part of the staff to kill them. The concerns were dismissed as the ravings of lunatics. At the time Jimmy Savile was managing the place and was raping them. The staff knew, they hated him as well, but no-one breathed a word in defence of the patients – although two patients committed suicide as a result of Savile’s activities.

      One Broadmoor patient who died as a result of ‘medication’ was one of the Gibbons twins from west Wales, who had been banged up in Broadmoor when they were teenagers for what no-one was quite sure. The twin who died was constantly described by Top Doctors and others in the caring professions as ‘evil’. Just like I was! When the Gibbons twins were sent to Broadmoor not only were they telling people that they were prostitutes, but a paedophile ring was in operation in west Wales. So if the two teenagers – whose only ‘problem’ was that for most of the time they refused to speak to anyone but each other – were prostitutes, who were their customers? Er – a few politicians perhaps? Top Doctors? Social workers? Because that’s who the customers were in north Wales – and the paedophile/sex trafficking ring in north Wales had connections with the one in west Wales….

      Would that well-known mental health campaigner and bedfellow of a variety of Top Doctors (one from UCL actually) as well as journalists and Lord Snowdon, Marjorie Wallace, like to tell us? After all Marjorie took a ‘special interest’ in the Gibbons twins (see my post ‘One Dangerous Fucker’).

      Come on Madge, you knew about Savile and you kept schtum – time to start singing like a canary about those twins. What did they know about who? The ‘evil’ twin was killed ‘by her medication’ days before she was due to finally be released from Broadmoor….

      Someone else who might be able to tell us why the Gibbons twin was bumped off is Dr David Mawson. He was working at Broadmoor whilst the twins were banged up there and whilst Savile was ‘manager’. David Mawson knew what a bunch of thugs the POA who ran Ashworth were, he admitted it to me. What David sadly didn’t admit to was that he knew that Dafydd was facilitating a paedophile ring….

      Another person who might have info is St Helena Kennedy. The St Helena, Baroness of the Shaws, who is married to a Top Doctor and who represented – but not very effectively – women banged up in Broadmoor and other such places (see post ‘Eve Was Framed – As Were A Lot Of Other People’). Helena is a friend of Top Doctor Prof Nigel Eastman from St Georges – who was concealing the activities of Dafydd and the paedophiles in north Wales.

      There will be posts coming soon naming others in the network who assisted old Dafydd and the paedophiles….

      1. MARK DRAKEFORD – WELSH GOV’T MINISTER. Worked as a social worker in Dyfed, west Wales, whilst the paedophile ring operated there. Drakeford was probably working in Dyfed when the Gibbons girls were sent to Broadmoor.

        Have you anything to tell us Mark?

      2. Another patron of Sane, set up by Marjorie Wallace is or was in 2015 Carol Stone ‘networking queen with 52.000 contacts at last count. Amongst all these influential and inspirational people there surely would have been a few with tales to tell especially as she was/is a Governor of the Tavistock and Portman Trust. She is also patron of Triumph over Phobia; and Saving Faces; Age UK; had A film production comany with hubby; involved with Lloyds Trust;City Bridges Trust; Peoples’ Health Trust; Bank Foundation; London Emergency Trust; Digital Marketing Foundation; Richard Cloudsley’s Charity and not least husband Richard Lindley lead governor Royal Free Trust of recent scandal involving massive breach of confidence after the trust handed over thoudands of records to google without informing or gaining consent. Carol states her interest in mental health stems from having a very shy brother who had been diagnosed with schizophrenia – He died very young at 40 – not sure what of -although he was very shy Carol has mentioned him very publicly more than several times. She doesn’t mention that her husband Richard’s daughter by his first marriage killed herself after a long severe mental ilness – she probably wouldn’t dare. Richard was a presenter for Panorama decades ago but it would seem likely that the Saville and other scandals would reach his ears via their many contacts in BBC and elsewhere’ How about another book, they all love writing books

        1. Oh yes, I blogged about Richard ages ago – I did come across Carol as well but didn’t have time to include her. I know that I should, because its the Patrons of the Third Sector and the media folk who ensure that the truth is never told and that only Esther Rantzen and Marjorie Wallace get airtime, but I just haven’t had time to post everything up that I know of.

          By the way, someone who’s something to do with former terrorist Salvadore Moncada obviously has a hot line to the Guardian – another institution where Moncada worked, this time Barts, has performed another miracle! Barts have Discovered The Cure For Haemophilia now. Except if you read the small print, they haven’t. Moncada is in Manchester these days, I’m waiting for Manchester University to send out a press release saying that they’ve brought Tutankhaman back to life and that death is now a thing of the past.

  5. This is ridiculous – am watching questions to the First Minister in the Senedd live online – they are discussing public health in Wales down at the Senedd. Ooh how can we improve it? Well Carwyn you could have those two old trouts sitting behind you arrested – Jane Hutt and Julie Morgan – they both know a great deal about abuse in the NHS and social services, as do Mark Drakeford, Ken Skates, Vaughan Gething, Lesley Griffiths and a few others.

    1. Not to mention Leanne. She was the head of the fucking probation officers union – some of those who abused kids in care in north Wales had worked, or went on to work, for the probation service.

  6. Apparently two AM’s left the Senydd in tears after more revelations about bullying of Carl S. – as if they didn’t know it was going on .Wonder who the tears are rely for…

    1. Yes they got the onions out during Darren Millar’s speech. Darren has also repeatedly called for prosecutions of the Betsi Board and staff in the wake of patient abuse and deaths, but that didn’t move them to tears.

      I see from BBC news Wales that Prof Laura McAllister is recommending another 20-30 AMs! Er Laura – try removing those that protected a paedophile ring, then I think you won’t need another 30. Laura herself has stood as a Plaid candidate twice and has ‘advised’ on AMs pay. They must love her! There is a bad smell around Laura, I’m sure that she knows a lot about bad behaviour in high places – there was much PR about Sport Wales whilst she was Chair until WHOOPS, scandal broke.

      The scandal of the sex abusing monks on Caldey Island, Pembrokeshire continues – a psychiatrist has identified one as a most dangerous sexual offender. Well it makes a change from protecting them by calling their victims mad n dangerous which is what psychiatrists are usually doing.

      Have been thinking more about the Gibbons twins. They weren’t involved with the mental health services so much, it was the Pembrokeshire educational psychology/special school service which really did for them. Before they were banged up in Broadmoor for having the temerity not to talk a great deal, there was an incident when after they left school, they rang one of their old teachers for help. Marjorie Wallace wrote about this in her book ‘The Silent Twins’ – which completely failed to explain who was doing what to those girls in Pembrokeshire – and made social worker-esque comments about the teacher ‘being unable to respond to their needs’. Which is social work speak for dumping someone when they are in terrible trouble. The teacher concerned was a local celeb due to generally pretentious behaviour – she got married in a Pagan ceremony or something which was featured in the media. There was a man as well, I think an ed psych – who was filmed bursting into tears on camera when he discussed the girl who died in Broadmoor. I mean why hasn’t anybody tracked these people down and asked them what the hell was going on??? We know that there was a paedophile ring in Pembrokeshire in the 70s and 80s which had connections to the gang in north Wales, which was being facilitated by psychiatrists who had colleagues in the secure hospitals. The Waterhouse Report mentions a victim of the gang in north Wales being sent to Broadmoor. WHY did two teenage girls who at most had committed a few petty crimes but who were telling people that they were prostitutes end up with an indeterminate sentence in BROADMOOR??? This is the sort of thing that Dafydd tried to do to me – and I now have all the documents to prove that the system was rotten to the core and that the Top Doctors were perjuring themselves to get people banged up who had evidence about organised child sexual abuse. Those girls were banged up just before I had trouble with Dafydd and the paedophiles’ friends – my mates and I watched the TV programme about the girls and my mates were saying ‘Christ that’ll be you, you’d better watch out’.

      There will be records of the Top Docs who wrote reports about those girls and the names of the teachers and ed psychs who dealt with them are in the public domain. What is wrong with everybody???

      1. I am delighted to see that BBC News are reporting another Medical Miracle after UCL have ‘discovered the cure for Huntington’s’. This time the Miracle has happened at the Glenfield Hospital Leicester – a baby born with her heart outside her body has had the heart put back inside again by a Team of Fifty – obstetricians, heart surgeons, neonatologists, anaethetists, the lot. (How did they all fit into the operating theatre??) Plenty of photos of the baby – who of course has been described ‘as a little fighter’ – wrapped in gender appropriate pink blankets. Could this PR story be at all related to my recent post about leading lights in Leicester NHS and social services as well as Leicester University concealing the serious abuse of children?

        OK Top Doctors. You might have trouble believing this, but there are some people whom I have not actually named on this blog – obviously patients, because I’m not going to breach their confidentiality even though the Top Doctors do when it suits them, but some Top Doctors as well. Usually because I didn’t perceive them to be as deranged and as deeply unpleasant as their colleagues. However they did know what those colleagues were doing. You want Leicester baby stories? You can have ’em. One Top Doctor from St Georges left to work in Leicester in 1990 – as a consultant obstetrician. Who knows, perhaps he was involved in this latest Medical Miracle. The man concerned was always very pleasant and helpful to me and I never saw him do anything untoward to patients or staff – but he certainly knew that some of his colleagues were crooks. Step forward Richard De Chazal – do us all a favour and blow the whistle on who were the Mr Bigs behind the wrongdoing at St Georges…

        1. News provided by an insider at MIND Cymru –

          My informant states that ‘the corruption at the toxic place that is MIND Cymru continues apace under the control of Sara Moseley who is determined to infiltrate the Health Boards with the sole aim of expanding MIND’s empire’s dominance of mental health. No regard to service users of course’.

          I am told that Moseley is now an Independent Member of Cardiff and Vale Health Board – she is their Third Sector rep, mental health champion and Welsh language champion. No conflicts of interest there then…

          Moseley’s brother Simon Moseley has for years been a clin psychologist at in north Wales. He works for the Betsi Board, which has been in special measures for the last two years, because of the serious abuse of mental health patients. Mental health patients continue to die regularly in the care of the Betsi. I have also been told that Sara is a friend and former colleagues of a member of the Betsi Board.

          Sara Moseley Chairs the Wales Alliance for Mental Health, the ‘anti-stigma’ campaign Time To Change and the Gov’ts Mental Health Crisis Task and Finish Group. She is also a visiting Fellow at Cardiff University.

          Does Sara have a background in mental health or campaigning? No – she is a journalist, but she used to work for the BBC which makes her far more valuable to MIND than anyone who might actually have any relevant knowledge. Sara’s last three tweets included one retweet from Leanne Wood concerning the lack of knowledge among Welsh school children re Welsh politics and one advertising the NHS Confederation’s forthcoming conference – the NHS Confed represents the most senior managers in the NHS. Sara is obviously really going to a grassroots bottom up approach to her work…

          I have also been told that Ann Lloyd – the former civil servant who was Chief Exec of the NHS in Wales, 2001-09 – has resigned from her position of Chair of MIND Cymru and Trustee of National MIND. Ann remains Chair of the Aneurin Bevan Health Board. Her resignation was on the grounds of conflict of interest. She had held all appointments since June, so I wonder what the real reason for her resignation was?

      2. Re. the Gibbons twins: I also read Wallace’s book about them. I remember part of one chapter stood out for me because of its whiff of falsity – this is where Wallace discusses the twins (apparently) losing their virginity, to a young man of about their own age; I think from a U.S. family stationed in the area because of his father’s job.

        Anyway, what sparked suspicion for me was that the descriptions, from each twin, re. the event in question, seemed totally fake in a way that is hard to define without going back to the extract. But they (or whoever maybe re-wrote or edited their purported writings from which Wallace liberally quotes throughout her book) made it sound as if this (purportedly) first sexual experience involved what sounded like basically a Satanic ritual – in a tiny abandoned church, on the altar; talk of a blood sacrifice I seem to recall. The accounts come from their (supposed) journal entries.

        It just sounded like some gruesomely camp b movie or something, but I absolutely don’t mean to be facetious, given the context of the abuse these young women either had already suffered by this point, or were poised to, in Broadmoor. My point is not so much that the Gibbons sisters were lying/aiming for a dramatic fictionalised write-up, but that I started to wonder why it seemed some of their journal entries had been falsified.

        I suspect perhaps neither of the two sisters wrote these two accounts. The entire tone of their respective encounters, with the same young man, seem as if pandering to some tacky fantasy. I was particularly struck by the fact that June Gibbons (purported) write-up did not match what I think of as her “style” of writing, having read with great interest her book, ‘Pepsi Cola Addict’. The sex scene in that book was also abusive, occurring between a young, possibly underage, boy and his teacher, after she gets him drunk. Yet it was rather sensitively handled, certainly not the OTT sensationalistic account which Wallace quotes discussing June Gibbons own sexual encounter.

        1. Thanks for your message.

          I am so glad that someone other than me is interested in the many aspects of the account of June and Jennifer that just does not add up. It’s a long whilst since I read Wallace’s account and I had not considered that the journal entries had been falsified – but Top Doctors do indeed fabricate documents, I have copies of documents that they fabricated in my own case. What I do remember is that although the twins didn’t speak, they wrote, they wrote a great deal and you are quite right, people had begun to take an interest in their writings because they were sending manuscripts off to publishers. When they were put in Broadmoor they stopped writing – because their ‘medication’ destroyed their vision and they couldn’t see to write. So that will have been convenient for a lot of people. They complained that the drugs that they were being given were causing eye-sight problems and Marjorie was reassured by the Top Docs who she was mates with that they were using their knowledge of medication to manipulate people. Which is what a Top Doctor who is abusing his patients says in response to any complaint from a psych patient. The Top Docs also claimed that the sexual encounters between the girls and local boys were a display of aggression towards men – not the sexual exploitation of two teenagers by God knows how many people.

          Those twins were in the hands of monsters who were part of a massive machine that was concealing very serious crime. One of those twins is still alive – but what’s the betting that she is hidden away somewhere in the hands of a colluding Top Doc on some utterly repressive Court order dictating that she’ll be back in prison/secure hospital if she breathes a word about what happened to them?

          Dr David Mawson knows something about those girls and so does Mark Drakeford. And so does Marjorie Wallace. Time for the police to pay them a visit I think.

          Just one other thing. One of the crazed sadistic Top Docs who were ‘treating’ those twins in Broadmoor was a Dr Spry. Some years ago I heard a story from someone in Llanberis that a retired psychiatrist was living in the area who regularly got rat arsed and then would drive home drunk. The local police knew that this was happening so they would let each other know when Spry was about to hit the road – the police would then all keep out of the way until Spry had got home, to avoid any chance of picking him up for drunk driving. The person who told me this knew how corrupt the Top Doctors in north Wales were but he didn’t know about the Broadmoor/child abuse/UK psychiatry network. He just gave it to me as an example of what Top Doctors in Gwynedd were getting away with. If this Spry in Llanberis was the Spry from Broadmoor, as with Dr Dafydd Alun Jones, no matter how serious his crimes he’ll not have been challenged about anything. Honest police knew that those doctors were involved with very serious organised crime and they didn’t dare challenge them – and officers like Elfed Roberts were corrupt anyway and were part of it all.

          1. Sally in the Gwendoline Marshall murder the village paid for a private detective who said he was ex Special Branch. IIRC his name also cropped up in Sunday press as source for lurid disused church black masses and satanic rituals. Again IIRC he even provided photos of hooded figures

            IIRC he told the village there was a secret masonic ceremony of “Letting virgin blood to earth” in the murder.

            He also said that there was a French Resistance connection because a Miss Marshall a secretary to Sir Jack Drummond of SOE (Himself a murder victim) had been murdered but then the revenge killers from France had sussed they had killed the wrong Miss Marshall.

            I cannot remember if this was before or after the Derry Mainwaring Knight case.

    1. Thanks for the info Richard.

      I am right in the middle of preparing a post with info about the 1991 Orkneys ‘Satanic Abuse’ Case at the moment – if you remember, Lord Clyde’s Inquiry into that scare maintained that none of the children had been abused, that innocent people had their lives destroyed and that social workers were barking mad. Apologies and compensation followed. Some of the former children themselves spoke out in 2006 and there was further litigation launched regarding the damage to the childhoods that had resulted from the actions of the social services.

      Once more, I’ve found that roads lead back to those we know and love….

      1. I picture the Darling Buds of May village parting with money to a PI who claims to be ex special branch. He soon comes up with a line of inquiry worthy of DI Driscoll of the Lawrence case who went on to support allegations of child hunts in Kent and child bodies tied back to back in ponds. Kent police gently suggesting not to confuse what dear old Driscoll comes out with as having a relationship with truth.

        Anyway the PI at the Buds of May village must have impressed with his theory of French Resistance secret ritual freemason assassins. And not one villager had the wit to ask if the death was by secret ritual how come he knew it ?
