Radio 4 announced this morning that Baroness Jean Trumpington aka Trumpers has died. I can only echo the sentiments of Trumpers’s mate Thatch during the Falklands conflict when South Georgia was recaptured in April 1982: Rejoice!


Trumpers enjoyed so many biographical highlights that I will refer readers to my post on the life and career of Trumpers, ’95 Glorious Years!’ for full details, but Trumpers’ greatest achievement was surely during her time as a junior Health Minister when she appointed Jimmy Savile to a senior management post at Broadmoor Hospital, in which role he subsequently raped and sexually assaulted a number of female patients, resulting in two of them committing suicide.


Here is a brief celebration of Trumpers’ life in pictures.

It was OK though, Trumpers’s dad and mum had so much dosh that even after they lost millions,  they were still far wealthier than virtually anyone else in the UK and continued to live the life of Riley, hobnobbing with Royalty.

Trumpers’s childhood playmates included the Carey-Jones’s, members of David Lloyd George’s family from north Wales. Two of the Carey-Jones’s were members of the gwerin who created havoc in north Wales when there was a challenge to the Top Doctors of the Walton Centre after the wife of the VC of Bangor University failed to survive her encounter with them. Trumpers’ was also friends with Jeremy Thorpe, who was seven years younger than Trumpers.

Trumpers’ only ever had one job until Thatch gave her a peerage and appointed her as a junior Minister and that was when Trumpers worked behind the counter in Peter Jones’s as a young woman. Trumpers was sacked after allowing one of her mates to steal from the store:

  • Peter Jones Department Store, Sloane Square, Chelsea Shop ...


Peter Jones played a part in Trumpers’ life once more many years later when she was a member of the Lords. Trumpers invited one of the Directors of Peter Jones to tea at the House and demanded discounts on expensive goods what with her being a Lady and no-one at Peter Jones twigged that this was the thieving cow whom they had sacked decades previously. Trumpers got the discounts and on subsequent shopping trips to Peter Jones, the staff scurried around ordering taxis for her and carrying all the bags of discounted goodies that she had purchased, lest Trumpers suffered from tired arms.

As a young woman, Trumpers’ was groped by David Lloyd George while she was staying at his mistress’s house:

Trumpers’ dad was involved in running The Windmill Theatre; it opened in 1931 and naked girls famously stood motionless on stage throughout all performances. There was never any improper behaviour at The Windmill, because if there had have been it would have been closed down. On one occasion Trumpers and her dad had a good laugh when the men in the audience at a ‘private showing’ scrambled over the seats and stormed the stage to grope and manhandle the naked girls.

In later life, Trumpers maxed out on having Worked In Intelligence At Bletchley Park. By Trumpers’ own account, she was only ’employed’ there in a very junior capacity after her dad had a word with someone, was bored out of her head and spent her entire time messing about with her mates or escaping to London to go gambling and to get pissed.



Trumpers thought that she might have met Alan Turing on one occasion, although she wasn’t sure. Whether she did meet him or not, Trumpers hated poofs and once left a party when she realised that there were some of them in attendance.

Trumpers was one of those who made a lot of noise about putting her name to the Campaign To Pardon Alan Turing. Unfortunately by the time Trumpers et al did that, Turing had been dead for many years, having killed himself in the aftermath of his conviction for Being A Queer and experiencing Help For His Homosexuality from the Top Doctors.


Trumpers’ best mate at Bletchley Park was Sally Norton who later married Bill Astor and became mistress of Cliveden:

Sadly Bill wasn’t very nice to Sally and once she had produced a male heir Sally was dumped and Bill remarried.


Nonetheless Trumpers continued weekending at Cliveden. Trumpers’ continued partying at Cliveden after Bill dumped his second wife and married Bronwen Pugh, who went to school in Dolgellau and was the daughter of Sir Alun Pugh, a Welsh Judge.


Bill’s mum Nancy hated all of Bill’s wives and made their lives very difficult. Nancy is a Feminist Icon on account of her being the First Woman To Be Elected As An MP. Although she wasn’t, there was a Woman Elected As An MP before Nancy Astor, but everyone’s forgotten about her. Just as Trumpers’ hated poofs, Nancy hated Jews.

Trumpers was attending parties at Cliveden throughout the Profumo Affair:


Trumpers met Lilibet at Cliveden:

Trumpers never liked the common slappers who found themselves sitting at the dinner table at Cliveden next to members of the Royal Family and Russian spies and she did know that None Of It Was Bill Astor’s Fault.

  • Bill Astor dumped Bronwen and she was kicked out of Cliveden along with her two young children and blamed for the whole mess, being nought but a Welsh slapper.
  • Bill Astor died not long afterwards, in Bermuda.

  • After more years of partying and drinking, Trumpers’ married Alan Barker, a Master at Eton. Barker didn’t have any dosh but he knew a great many Posh Rich people and a few former PMs.

Trumpers threw herself into Cambridge life and Conservative politics and she made many good friends:

Trumpers became Lady Mayoress of Cambridge and Barker fumed after he was told that when he was misusing the Mayoral car for personal business, he had to remove the flag from the car. Trumpers was told by the police that it was OK for her to keep the unlawful offensive weapons that they knew were in her house even though as a magistrate and Lady Mayoress it could prove difficult if this ever became public.

Barker was subsequently appointed Headmaster of University College School in Hampstead. As the Headmaster’s wife, Trumpers entertained pupils’ parents to tea, including Harold Wilson.

In Feb 1980 Trumpers’ received a life peerage.

  • "Nagy-Britannia nem valódi demokrácia" |

Trumpers was always frank that she was only ever able to have a political career in later life because of Thatch’s kindness in giving her a peerage and she remained loyal to Thatch for ever after.

Barker’s old pupil from Eton, Douglas Hurd, of whom Trumpers confirmed Barker was ‘very, very fond’, was asked by Barker to Get Trumpers A Job. So Hurd gave Trumpers a role in the UN’s work with Wimmin. Thus Trumpers got to know Sally Mugabe.

No-one knew that Sally Mugabe was being treated at St Mary’s and indeed died there, the world was told that Sally was treated and died in Harare, because President Mugabe didn’t want to admit that she’d gone to Britain for treatment. Sally Mugabe was in St Mary’s under an assumed name although the Top Doctors all knew who she was.

Trumpers later pissed Robert Mugabe off when she let slip that she had visited his wife at St Mary’s, particularly as Robert Mugabe had been having an affair with Gucci Grace at the time. Here’s a PR shot:

Trumpers served as a Health Minister alongside Lord Simon Glenarthur, who made the decision to use infected blood products purchased from the US to treat NHS patients. Thousands of NHS patients contracted Hepatitis and HIV as a result and many of them have died.

Baroness Jean Trumpington: aristocrat, socialite, member of Thatch’s Gov’t. Her contribution to society can be summed up thus:

As any fule kno, Marx believed that the Point Is To Change It. The Life and Career of Trumpers demonstrates quite clearly that it certainly does need changing. Now.


The people’s flag is deepest red,
It shrouded oft our martyred dead,
And ere their limbs grew stiff and cold,
Their hearts’ blood dyed its ev’ry fold.

Then raise the scarlet standard high.
Within its shade we’ll live and die,
Though cowards flinch and traitors sneer,
We’ll keep the red flag flying here.

Look ’round, the Frenchman loves its blaze,
The sturdy German chants its praise,
In Moscow’s vaults its hymns are sung
Chicago swells the surging throng.

Then raise the scarlet standard high.
Within its shade we’ll live and die,
Though cowards flinch and traitors sneer,
We’ll keep the red flag flying here.

It waved above our infant might,
When all ahead seemed dark as night;
It witnessed many a deed and vow,
We must not change its colour now.

Then raise the scarlet standard high.
Within its shade we’ll live and die,
Though cowards flinch and traitors sneer,
We’ll keep the red flag flying here.

It well recalls the triumphs past,
It gives the hope of peace at last;
The banner bright, the symbol plain,
Of human right and human gain.

Then raise the scarlet standard high.
Within its shade we’ll live and die,
Though cowards flinch and traitors sneer,
We’ll keep the red flag flying here.

It suits today the weak and base,
Whose minds are fixed on pelf and place
To cringe before the rich man’s frown,
And haul the sacred emblem down.

Then raise the scarlet standard high.
Within its shade we’ll live and die,
Though cowards flinch and traitors sneer,
We’ll keep the red flag flying here.

With heads uncovered swear we all
To bear it onward till we fall;
Come dungeons dark or gallows grim,
This song shall be our parting hymn.

Then raise the scarlet standard high.
Within its shade we’ll live and die,
Though cowards flinch and traitors sneer,
We’ll keep the red flag flying here.

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. Went off to sleep with a laugh Sally having read your previous blog – a piece on late news radio described trumps as having ‘ worked on Lloyd George’s farm’ – now there’s a useful euphemism! We have read of many on your blog who could be thus described….

    1. I haven’t had time to read the lies published about Trumpers today, I’ve been busy replying to e mails and writing the above post! I woke up for the 5-30 am headlines as usual and heard the wonderful news! Then as I was getting out of the shower I heard the ‘Today’ programme begin by saying that the old cow was dead and that she had been described as a ‘joy’! I screamed and ran away and began blogging…

      Yes, like all of Trumpers’ other ‘jobs’, the stint on Lloyd George’s farm was another con. Being degenerate aristos who were pissing off everyone else, they were all told to pretend to be contributing to the war effort, including Trumpers. Her family were mates with the Lloyd George’s – and no way was Lloyd George a real farmer! – and off Trumpers went to share his mistress’s house. Photos were taken of Trumpers pretending to be labouring on the farm which were published for War PR. Lord Haw Haw here we come…

      I don’t really mind how many parties Trumpers went to or how bladdered she got or how vain and silly she was. Or indeed what she did with Lloyd George in terms of discussing Uganda. My concern is that this lethal, criminal, dangerous idiot was given responsibility, up to Ministerial level, over the lives of other people. I do take the piss on this blog but take a long hard look at Trumpers’ track record. It is shocking, absolutely indefensible.

      Look at the dates: peerage, Feb 1980, on the basis of nothing, nothing at all of distinction. Just as Mary Wynch was released from Denbigh and found a lawyer…
      Health Minister, 1985. On the back of no knowledge of medicine at all. When Brown and me refused to shut up about Dafydd. When Mary was at the door of the Master of the Rolls. When Alison Taylor was writing to Gov’t Minister.
      Savile to Broadmoor, late 1980s. As Dafydd et al began using Broadmoor for their victims…

      Trumpers killed people with her decisions, believe me she killed people. She was far too thick to have ever thought of the wider masterplan, as was Thatcher, but someone did. They were wiping out witnesses to Dafydd and the Westminster Paedophile Ring.

      I had an e mail this morning telling me much about the Jill Dando case (which I did already know) and warning me that paedophile rings have been getting away with murder. I know, they don’t usually do it with an assassin’s bullet, they do it by ‘medical errors’. Brown and me knew it was happening 30 yrs ago but we didn’t realise that it was linked to paedophile rings; we knew that Top Docs were killing people who’d challenged Dafydd and we knew about the drug dealing and the women being sexually assaulted but we didn’t know about the 11 yr old boys until much later.

      We told people. We told people and we wrote and we repeatedly said THEY ARE KILLING THEIR PATIENTS. We were ignored. It is now crystal clear – they were killing their patients who were witnesses to the Westminster Paedophile Ring. We begged for help, we knew that people were being killed and I know now that the security services knew what we knew and far far more. They left people to be killed. They forced them into the hands of the Top Doctors by sectioning them or suspending them from jobs and demanding a ‘medical opinion’ and those people then died under the care of the Top Docs. Look at the cases if you doubt me and you will soon see what I mean.

      I do appreciate it when people e mail and say do be careful, these people are killers. But I know. I and others in north Wales yelled as loudly as we could and we were left to be killed in public.

      The problem is with the Top Doctors, this could not have happened without their collusion. There should have been public warnings 30 yrs ago that the NHS was not safe for whistleblowers on any sort of sexual misconduct. The security services should have put a plant into medicine and then protected their lives while the plant went public and blew the whole lot open. They should have done it 30 yrs ago. I’d have done it myself if they’d come to me at St George’s and asked… Instead they watched as I was pushed into destitution and my friends and other witnesses were killed.

      Among all the media coverage of organised paedophile gangs and the warnings that the gangs contain ‘clever people some of whom are even doctors and lawyers’, have you noticed that NO doctor has ever been named, apart from Ollie Brook and Morris Fraser, who were convicted? Vicars have been named, bishops, priests, politicians, lawyers, but er a Top Doc? No. Not a word. Not even dead ones who can’t sue. Not even the docs who were friends with Jimmy Savile. Because if you name a doc, you bloody well die.

      I was told weeks ago that I was one of the people whom was given a blood transfusion with potentially infected blood at the C&A hospital years ago when I was under anaesthetic for an injury repair. It doesn’t surprise me. I know that I was lied to, a night nurse in the hospital let it sleep that I’d only needed a couple of pints, yet when I got out and followed up – out of interest, not out of suspicion, it was OOOH I had blood, how much?? – there were denials from everyone that I’d had a transfusion.

      And my friends were lied to to stop them visiting me – Anne, Brendon and Brown all wanted to visit but they rang the C&A and were told that I was in the theatre at that time. No I wasn’t, I was on the ward chatting to everyone else’s visitors. I didn’t get stitched up (so to speak) until gone midnight. I was told that a car crash had come in and had to take priority. I have now been told that was a lie. My mates were kept away and it was another potential lethal bit of surgery in the middle of the night with as few witnesses as possible…

      That was in 1984. I don’t have any symptoms of Hep or HIV, I’m fairly sure that I’d have seen something by now if I had been infected so it looks like I’ve had a lucky escape. And no I’m certainly not going to return to the murdering shitbags to Get Tested, why would I ever go near them again? Brown remarked the other day that the only reason that he is still alive is that when we realised what was happening he steered well-clear of Top Docs.

      I was told yesterday that there was a particularly high price on my head because Brown and me were known to be Political! Hilarious, they must have hated us, Brown off publishing on political bias in news reports and filming the Handsworth riots and publishing Marxist theory, God DGE Wood must have been frothing at the mouth as he read his Daily Mail. And we weren’t lefties like Uncle Harry’s nephew or Frank Byers’s granddaughter or the Windbag’s son either, we were the real thing.

      Gov’t needs to be brave. Lives are being lost and destroyed, look at the data sets; mental health patients do better without Top Docs as do many other patients, even certain cancer patients. The Gov’t needs to closely screen and vet and train up good, honest doctors to perform the procedures that do save lives and wave goodbye to the rest of these worthless bastards and invest the money in social care and support instead.

      I was ill when I was young, I did get clobbered very badly, but it was Brown who kept me alive. I wish that I had never gone near any of those worthless, lying conmen (and women) who were doing nothing other than coercing vulnerable people into a trafficking racket. They contributed nothing to the health and well-being of north Wales and quite a few of them should have been arrested.

      Get rid of them Theresa, get rid of them now. They’re costing the country a fortune and it is only they who are benefiting.

      1. BBC News Wales has a report on the IICSA which has been taking evidence from some of the few people who are still alive who were in Bryn Alyn. They have talked about their battles for very modest amounts of compensation. The insurers passed the buck and claimed that it was another insurer responsible, so the witnesses had to describe in detail all over again what happened to them in Bryn Alyn. They were called liars.

        John Allen is currently serving his third prison sentence for sexual assaults on kids in his care…

        Gang rapes over decades. Beatings, sex at gun point, kids used for child porn, sex with animals…

        One of the lucky winners who did get compensation got £14k. Gordon Anglesea the police officer who sued Private Eye for libel when they named him as having abused kids in care won his case and received nearly £400k in damages. In 2016 Anglesea went to prison for sexually abusing kids in care. He did not have to repay his bingo winnings.

        Everyone who was in Bryn Golau Ward with me in Denbigh in 1986 is dead. Many of the people I knew from the Hergest Unit are dead.

        Meanwhile Vaughan Gething has been talking about how being racially abused and insulted is just part of a black person’s daily experience. I am sure that Vaughan is quite right. Vaughan is Wales’s Health Minister. He refused to investigate my allegations of abuse and criminality in the NHS in north Wales and constantly tells the Senedd that there is no problem with the NHS in Wales. I’m in no doubt that being called a black bastard in the street by people unknown to one isn’t very pleasant but at least Vaughan wasn’t forced into having group sex with animals at gun point when he was 13. The people who made kids do that are running the NHS and social services in north Wales.

        Vaughan is hoping to become Wales’s next FM. As is Mark Drakeford, a former social worker who when he was Health Minister ignored allegations of abuse of patients in the NHS…

        The other hopeful is the Baroness Of Ely. Her dad the Rev Bob was a social worker who was involved in charidee work with George Thomas who molested kids provided by Dafydd’s gang.

        You are disgusting, all three of you. Well let’s just see what happens when one of you becomes FM then. You will be trying to run a country which is ruled by the gangsters whom you are too frightened to take on and whom you personally knew.

        Hundreds and hundreds of complaints of abuse from kids in care and psych patients. Scores and scores of deaths, kids and patients telling Angels and Top Docs that they are suicidal only to have poison spat at them and be told to go and do it then. A lot of them did.

        Dafydd in the women’s dorm at 2 in the morning ‘carrying out a ward round’…

        There’s no evidence that anything untoward was going on. None at all.

        Then excavate the grounds of the North Wales Hospital Denbigh and tell me where those bodies came from.
