My post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part I’ discussed the background of Bruce Grocott, now Lord Grocott, who was Blair’s PPS, 1994-2001. I mentioned that another person worked as Blair’s PPS alongside Grocott during 1997, although unlike Grocott, this PPS didn’t end up in the Lords and wasn’t deemed worthy of a mention in Blair’s autobiography. A look at this person’s biography however suggests that they were crucial in enabling the lid to be kept on the Westminster Paedophile Ring. The person to whom I am referring is Ann Coffey.
Ann Coffey is the Labour MP for Stockport. She graduated from the South Bank Poly in 1967, where she had been Vice-President of the Students’ Union. She trained as a teacher at Walsall College of Education in 1971, but didn’t remain a teacher. Instead Coffey immediately secured a job as a trainee social worker with Walsall Social Services. In 1972 she worked as a social worker for Birmingham City Council and in 1973 Coffey obtained a job as a social worker for – Gwynedd County Council.
In 1973 the paedophile ring in north Wales and Cheshire was thriving. Within the management of Gwynedd Social Services, there was no-one who had any experience of children’s social work. The managers were Neanderthals who had worked in the local authorities of north Wales for donkeys years, who were, as the Waterhouse Report made clear, clueless. See post ‘I Know Nuzzing…’ for the background on the managers of the children’s services in Gwynedd at that time. The child care practices were effectively Victorian. Out at the North Wales Hospital Denbigh, Gwynne the lobotomist and Dr Dafydd Alun Jones were busy lobotomising, shocking and drugging gay men to cure them of their homosexuality, as well as anyone who dared complain about the paedophile gang. Female patients were being sexually exploited and were subjected to the same treatment if they raised any objections.
By 1973 John Allen – who at present is serving yet another prison sentence for the sexual abuse of children – had set up the Bryn Alyn Community in Clwyd near Wrexham, with branches in Shropshire and Cheshire and was accepting children from local authorities across the UK. There were many children from the London authorities, the West Midlands and Manchester sent to north Wales. Allen regularly sent literature to local authorities across Britain offering to accept ‘troubled children’. The ‘troubled children’ housed at Bryn Alyn were beaten, molested, buggered, raped, forced to perform oral sex and when they no longer put up a struggle against all this they were trafficked to brothels in London and Brighton owned by Allen. He also had a drugs and porn business and the children in his care were used to produce the porn. They were sold drugs – which they paid for using their earnings from sex work. Although the hub of Allen’s business was near Wrexham, there was a collaboration and co-ordination across the local authorities of north Wales and children were passed around across the region.
Up in Gwynedd, near Dolgellau, in the woods in the mountains, miles away from trains or buses or even in those days good roads, there were more establishments which were described variously as ‘children’s homes’ or ‘residential schools’. Paul Hett – a solicitor who has now been struck off – owned and managed some of these places. There were complaints of abuse of children in Hett’s institutions and even the Waterhouse Report was rude about Hett and his suitability to be let loose on children.
The children being sent to children’s homes in north Wales would not even have been able to pronounce the names of the nearest villages. They wouldn’t speak the same language as the people living nearby and if they did ask for help they wouldn’t get it because the local people had all been told that the children in the homes were lying delinquents who would steal off them. Furthermore, in those woods and hills there was no-one to hear them scream or see them being beaten up and molested.
This was the business model for kids in care in north Wales at the time and Ann Coffey would have known about it. There is nothing in Ann Coffey’s biography that suggests that she had any connections to Wales or that she speaks Welsh. In 1973 Gwynedd was still very Welsh – a few English hippies had started to move in by then, but they wouldn’t be working in Gwynedd County Council and the employees of Gwynedd County Council would have been incredibly hostile to the hippies anyway.
There was one group of social workers who did go to work in Gwynedd at that time. They were the paedophiles who had responded to the job adverts that John Allen et al were placing in papers like ‘New Society’. The Waterhouse Report mentions the backgrounds of a few of the staff in the children’s homes who hadn’t ‘trained’ in north Wales. One was from the South Bank Poly.
Ann didn’t hang around in Gwynedd for long – in 1974 she took up a job as a social worker with the Metropolitan Borough of Wolverhampton, then in 1975 she worked as a social worker in the Metropolitan Borough of Stockport. In 1982 Coffey landed a job as a social worker with Cheshire County Council, where she remained until 1988. Lucille Hughes, the Director of Gwynedd Social Services from the mid-80s who was not only the mistress of Dafydd Alun Jones but was named in the Waterhouse Report as knowing that a paedophile ring was operating in the social services but did nothing to stop it, had previously worked as a social worker for Cheshire Social Services. Whilst Coffey was working for Cheshire County Council, Sir Peter Morrison – the Tory MP for Chester and Thatcher’s PPS – was molesting boys in the children’s homes in north Wales as well as in Cheshire. In 1988 Ann Coffey was appointed fostering team leader for the Metropolitan Borough of Oldham. Children weren’t just sent from English authorities to live in the children’s homes in north Wales – they were sent to foster homes as well, often very unsuitable homes where they were abused. Ann remained working for Oldham until she was elected MP for Stockport in 1992.
Ann had first stood for Parliament in 1987, as the unsuccessful Labour candidate for Cheadle. By 1987, Mary Wynch, Alison Taylor and I were all raising serious concerns about the criminal activities of Ann’s former colleagues in Gwynedd. The Master of the Rolls had given Mary leave to sue Dafydd Alun Jones, Risley Remand Centre and Clwyd Health Authority (see post ‘The Mary Wynch Case – Details’) and she had won her case (but never received the agreed compensation); Alison had been sacked from her job as a social worker in Gwynedd after reporting that children in care were being abused and I had been arrested on the basis of a pack of lies told by a junior doctor at Ysbyty Gwynedd who had been put up to this by Dafydd and Dr Tony Francis (Dr X), whilst my complaints about their previous criminality remained uninvestigated (see post ‘Workers’ Play Time’).
Coffey had first dipped her toe into local politics in 1984 when she became a Councillor on Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council. She was the Labour Group leader, 1988-92 but stepped down from the Council completely in 1994.
So what was going on in 1992 when Coffey got herself elected? A police investigation had begun into the abuse of children in north Wales and the allegations that a paedophile ring was at work. Stories had appeared in the London based media about it all and there were allegations that public figures were involved in the abuse. The Tories had been in a major panic because they thought that they were going to lose the election. Thatch had been deposed, but before she had been deposed Sir Peter Morrison – who was now Deputy Party Chairman – had organised her leadership campaign. In her book Diaries, in 1992 Edwina Currie notes that she is ‘frightened’ because everyone knows that Peter Morrison is molesting children and there are fears that the media will get hold of the story. The General Election of 1992 was held on 9 April. On 18 April 1992 five potential witnesses to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal were killed when someone chucked a petrol bomb into the building where they had been invited to a party (see post ‘The Silence Of The Welsh Lambs’). John Allen had told one of the party goers that he’d meet them at the party but he never turned up. The man who allegedly confessed to starting the fire was killed a few days later when he was hit by a lorry on a quiet country road. One survivor from the party stated that someone was murdering the witnesses with information about the paedophile gang – he was later found dead himself just before he was due to receive a compensation payment.
Two young men from north Wales publicly named Gordon Anglesea, a senior police officer from the North Wales Police, as having molested them whilst they were in care in north Wales. Anglesea sued the media outlets who repeated the allegations for libel. In 1994 Anglesea won his case and was awarded nearly £400k damages. One of the young men who had named him and had subsequently given evidence at the trial was found dead shortly afterwards, hanging from a stairwell in a block of flats in Wrexham.
In 2016 Gordon Anglesea was convicted of historical sex offences against boys in care in north Wales and imprisoned.
But at least Ann Coffey got a seat in the Commons!
Coffey’s wiki states that she trained as a social worker in Walsall in 1971, so presumably she did the old CQSW then. Her wiki also states that she has an MSc in psychiatric social work from the University of Manchester Medical School. The reference list at the bottom of the wiki entry gives the title of her MSc thesis and dates it as 1979.
Dr Tony Francis (Dr X), one of the psychiatrists who was concealing the paedophile gang in north Wales, worked as a psychiatrist in Manchester in the late 1970s/early 80s before he went to work in north Wales. Francis was part of a research team led by Ian Brockington at the University of Manchester Medical School (see post ‘Ian Brockington’s Mischief’). Francis moved to north Wales in approx. 1983. After Francis left Manchester for north Wales, Ian Brockington was given a Chair at the University of Birmingham Medical School, alongside Professor Robert Bluglass – who in 1988 covered up the criminal activities of Tony Francis, Dafydd Alun Jones and Gwynedd Social Services (see post ‘Enter Professor Robert Bluglass CBE’).
One of the many patients whose parents complained about Gwynne the lobotomist as he caused havoc in the Student Health Centre in Bangor University was the girl who lived next to me in hall when I was in my first year at university. She developed bipolar disorder and was referred to Gwynne. He told her that there was nothing that anyone could do for her – which was what he said to everyone – and a few hours later she attempted suicide. She was found and ended up in the North Wales Hospital for many weeks, where her consultant was Tony Francis. Francis did what he always did – he covered up the disaster. Francis couldn’t deny what the lobotomist had actually done, so instead he told this student’s parents that Gwynne was in serious trouble with the university authorities and nothing like this would ever be allowed to happen again. The lobotomist continued to sit in that Health Centre until he died some four years later and at least two other students injured themselves after encountering him. They were also told by Tony Francis that a terrible mistake had been made and nothing like that would ever be allowed to happen again.
After my former neighbour in hall left Denbigh, she eventually completed her degree but continued to encounter difficulties. After graduation she finished an MA but she never managed to hold down a job – her mood disorder was severe and she relied very much upon her family to support her. After many years, she tried living independently and moved to the Stockport area. I had kept in touch with her – she was in the care of the local mental health services and the neglect seemed to be as bad as in north Wales. She was kept well-dosed up on huge quantities of anti-psychotics and an anti-depressant that is fatal in overdose. Her sister lived in Australia and invited her out to see her sister’s new baby. My friend visited her psychiatrist just before the trip and he prescribed yet another massive dose of anti-psychotics and told her to take it the night before she was due to travel. My friend was not like me, she actually did what these fuckwits suggested even when it was obviously dangerous and she obediently dosed herself up as ordered. Whilst changing flights at an airport in the Far East she collapsed from the effects of her ‘medication’ and other passengers came to her assistance. She continued to receive ‘care’ under the idiot who had caused the problem, but the idiot didn’t hold with actually seeing his patients, he just prescribed. My friend became seriously depressed and took an overdose of the highly toxic anti-depressants. Luckily she was found and instead of dying merely ended up in a coma. She remained in intensive care for quite some time and sustained kidney damage. Her elderly mum – who was now her main support – went to see the psychiatrist with her and explained that she was very concerned that if her daughter became severely depressed again, she would take another overdose and this time succeed in killing herself, so please could she be put on less toxic medication. They left the consultation with a prescription for exactly the same brand of anti-depressants that my friend had nearly succeeded in killing herself with. And no more appointments. This was some ten years ago. My friend died about five years ago. She committed suicide. But at least Stockport MIND put some photos of her up on the internet ‘to remember the good times’.
Within three years of her being elected to the Commons Blair appointed Ann Coffey an Opposition Whip – Blair himself had only been leader of the opposition for a year when he did that, so he obviously spotted Ann Coffey’s talents. The next year, in 1996, Blair appointed Coffey Opposition Health spokesperson. Then in 1997 when Blair became PM, Coffey became his PPS, along with Bruce Grocott. Just as the Waterhouse Inquiry was taking evidence from the people who had been beaten, starved, forced to work as free labour, raped and trafficked into sex work when they were kids in the care of Ann Coffey and her colleagues.
In 1998 Coffey was moved and became PPS to the Secretary of State for the DWP, Alistair Darling. Between 2002-06, she was Darling’s assistant when he was Secretary of State for Transport and then Secretary of State for Trade and Industry. In 2007 when Blair resigned as PM, Coffey was appointed PPS to the Chancellor of the Exchequer – Alistair Darling! Coffey remained in that position until 2010, when Gordon Brown lost the election.
Coffey’s wiki doesn’t state any further Gov’t jobs after 2010 – presumably she is on the backbenches. There is a gap on Coffey’s biography as detailed on wiki – for the four years after she graduated, before she began teacher training. There could be many innocent explanations for this, but we’re talking a New Labour babe here, who will big up absolutely everything that she’s ever done…
Talking of which, Ann Coffey’s personal website certainly blows her trumpet for her. Can anyone guess what Ann’s special interest is? It’s the abuse of children of course!
Ann Chaired the All Parliamentary Group for Runaway and Missing Children and Adults. Ann knows all about runaway children – those kids in Bryn Alyn and Bryn Estyn ran away from the beatings and the rapes constantly. In one year, the North Wales Police recorded literally hundreds of occasions on which children had ‘absconded’ from Bryn Alyn. The police would always take the kids back to the home – even when the children had visible injuries. The social workers themselves became somewhat embarrassed in the face of the kids fleeing for their lives, so they then started removing the children’s shoes and sometimes all the rest of their clothes as well.
Foster children in Gwynedd also ran away from abusive foster parents. I heard at first hand from a young woman who was fostered to a woman in north Wales who was phenomenally physically abusive to her and her sister about how they ran away and went to the police station to report the cruelty. The police rang their social worker who then arrived at the police station – with their foster mother. The police then asked the two sisters if they’d ‘like to repeat your allegations in front of your mother’. The two girls were then returned back to their foster home. Where they didn’t just have their mother to contend with but also the neighbours – who had been told about the vicious lies that the ‘black bitches from Liverpool’ had told about the kindly lady who had taken them in and who then hurled abuse and spat at them in the village. These two girls were fostered in Gwynedd some years after Coffey had left the region, but their abusive foster mother had been fostering for many years – she fostered so many children that she’d even been given the British Empire Medal. Despite the best efforts of Gwynedd Social Services, one of these girls did outstandingly well academically and many years later was asked by Gwynedd Social Services if she’d like to attend a reception with Tony Blair at Number 10 for former children in care who have achieved – just to demonstrate how good the UK child protection system was. Her sister didn’t fare so well – she developed serious depression and repeatedly attempted suicide and was told by the Hergest Unit that she had a personality disorder.
Ann Coffey came into her own after the Rochdale Child Abuse Scandal. Ann Chaired the Inquiry into Rochdale! That was the scandal which involved the widespread abuse of children in care which had gone on for decades and with which all agencies had colluded because of the involvement of an MP in the abuse. Now where have I heard that before??? Could you remind me Ann??? Ann, formerly of GWYNEDD and CHESHIRE??? Ann criticised the failings of the authorities in Rochdale in responding to signs of abuse and exploitation. Ann saw the same signs of abuse and exploitation in every local authority in which she was employed, so perhaps she’d like to make a police statement. Operation Pallial are still investigating historical child abuse in north Wales, I’m sure that they’d appreciate your contribution Ann.
I seem to remember that there have been problems of the organised sexual abuse of children in care in Oldham as well.
In 2013 the ‘Indie’ reported that Ann Coffey had stated that there should be ‘no mercy’ for those who fail to protect children, whilst she made reference to the ‘almost wilful blindness’ of the authorities involved in a case in Oxford, where children were tortured and raped by a gang under the noses of everyone. OK Ann, perhaps you’d like to hand yourself in to the police immediately.
In Jan 2015 Ann tabled amendments in Parliament to have the terms ‘child prostitution’ removed from UK legislation. Ann explained that the term ‘child prostitute’ suggests that the children involved consented and it really would be far better if the term was not used at all. Actually Ann, the term ‘child prostitution’ in no way suggests that the child has consented. It is an accurate description of what is happening – that someone is selling the children concerned for sex work, usually whilst they are in the care of the local authority. It is happening on a grand scale and it is illustrative of just how badly children in care are treated by the social workers who are paid to look after them. I suspect that Ann was right behind the rebranding of mental health patients as service users – because we all know that serious abuse of powerless people disappears if the terminology is changed. Barnardos supported Ann when she tabled her amendments – that’ll be the Barnardos who supplied some of the social workers named in the Waterhouse Report who were involved in the abuse of children in north Wales. Sue Berelowitz, the Deputy Children’s Commissioner for England also praised Ann. So that’s who the Children’s Commissioner’s office looks to for guidance…
Ann’s website is jam packed with news items relating to child sexual exploitation, detailing her brave battle on behalf of the nation’s children against those who would exploit them. In one newsflash, dated April 2016, Ann stated that the ‘children’s homes market is a catastrophic failure’ and explains that numerous children’s homes are popping up in areas where property is cheap yet with not enough local demand for the homes. That’s right Ann, that was the business model pioneered by John Allen when you worked for the local authorities who sent children from elsewhere ‘on placement’ with him. Why has it taken you more than forty years to mention it? Couldn’t you have piped up in 1992 when you were elected to Parliament, just after days before five witnesses to Allen’s wrongdoing were killed by a petrol bomb?
Most of the former children in care in north Wales have spent their lives in poverty – that is the ones who weren’t found dead in their late teens or twenties – but Ann not only enjoys a salary as an MP, she does pretty well out of the Parliamentary expenses system as well. Ann was named and shamed in the expenses scandal. It was revealed that in 2007, as well as receiving her salary of £60k, Ann claimed £150k in expenses. Is Ann a single parent with fifteen hungry mouths to feed? Well there’s no mention anywhere of Ann having children, but she does have a husband. Ann is married to Peter Saraga.
Saraga was MD of the Phillips Research Labs UK, 1992-02. He was Vice-Chair of the University of Sussex Council, 2005-11; a member of the Board of HEFCE, 2002-08; Chaired the HEFCE advisory group on Strategically Important and Vulnerable Subjects and the assessment panel for the UK Research Partnership Innovation Fund; was or is a visiting Professor at Imperial College; is a member of Loughborough University’s Council; Chairs the Advisory Board at the University of Surrey.
Ann’s wiki states that she lives in Stockport but also ‘has a home in London’. Presumably the home in London is 76 Portland Place, the address given for Peter Saraga. 76 Portland Place is no former council flat. It is in one of the most expensive areas of London – Marylebone – just down the road from Harley Street, around the corner from the offices of the GMC. So for some reason, Coffey lives in the heart of the London medical establishment – the bit that caters for very rich, private patients. There won’t be many former Gwynedd social workers among her neighbours. What is she doing there? The Kuwait Health Office is just near Ann, as is the Anaesthesia Heritage Centre – I think that Ann lost all feeling herself many, many years ago. Should Ann get thirsty, she can nip down the road to the Lucky Pig Cocktail Bar. Trebles all around!
In June 2016, Coffey, along with another Lucky Pig who ignored a paedophile ring operating under nose, Margaret Hodge, wrote a letter to the Parliamentary Labour Party Chair requesting a vote of no confidence in Jeremy Corbyn. Which is what precipitated the resignations of many more Lucky Pigs, who have now all changed their minds about Jeremy because he’s proving to be quite a hit with sections of the electorate. All together now: ‘I’m Ready To Serve’. Of course Jeremy’s ex, Lucky Pig Diane Abbott, has always been Ready To Serve, she hasn’t had to do a U turn regarding that. But I did enjoy the irony yesterday when I saw that Diane had written a piece for the ‘Morning Star’ about Britain abandoning refugee children. Diane Abbott was the Press and PR Officer for Lambeth Borough Council whilst that Council ignored the fact that it’s children’s homes were full of paedophiles abusing the kids. Lambeth also sent children in its care into the arms of John Allen and the Bryn Alyn Community and other homes in north Wales.
After Coffey and Bruce Grocott had finished their stints as his PPSs, Blair acquired a new bag carrier – David Hanson, MP for Delyn in north Wales. Delyn is a constituency which covers most of Flintshire, including the town of Mold. Flintshire was the home territory and/or base of some of the most powerful people involved in concealing the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal, including Sir Ronald Waterhouse – Mold is the town where the County Council, the Law Courts etc are located.
David Hanson was elected for Delyn in 1992 – when Ann Coffey was elected for Stockport! Just as the shit really began to hit the fan concerning the paedophile gang in north Wales/Cheshire – the police investigation, the media reports, the murders of the five witnesses…
Hanson became involved with politics when he was at university in Hull. Hanson graduated in 1978 and then received his Certificate of Education in 1981. Whilst he was at Hull he was active in the Hull University Labour Club and Vice-President of the Hull Students’ Union. Hanson went to work with Scope (then known as the Spastics Society) in 1982, where he remained until 1989. There have been allegations that Scope ignored or colluded with the abuse of disabled people. In 1989 Hanson became Director of an organisation called Preventing Solvent Abuse. One wonders whether he knew that leading light in all matters concerning substance abuse in north Wales, Dr Dafydd Alun Jones…
Between 1983-89, Hanson was a Councillor on and then the leader of Royal Vale Borough Council in Cheshire. He was a Councillor on Northwich Town Council, 1987-91.
Hanson was the unsuccessful Labour candidate for Eddisbury in Cheshire in 1983. Eddisbury is a seat much coveted by the paedophiles’ friends, they’ve all had a go at Eddisbury. The seat is currently held by Tory Antoinette Sandbach, whose late father was the best friend that the paedophiles’ could have ever asked for. Antoinette returned home in a hurry in 2007 after spending years working as a barrister in London – I presume that the paedophiles’ friends had sent up a distress flare. See post ‘News Round Up, August 24 2017′ for the gory details re Antoinette, her dad and the paedophiles’ friends.
In 1984 David had a go at getting himself elected to the European Parliament for the seat of West Cheshire. It didn’t come off and in 1987 he stood for Delyn. The Conservative Keith Raffan won the seat but Hanson made it into the Commons in 1992.
Upon his arrival in Parliament, Hanson sat on the Welsh Affairs Select Committee – he sat on that Committee until 1996. So Hanson was on that Committee throughout the Jillings investigation into child abuse in his own constituency and whilst the most enormous row broke out about the destruction of the Jillings Report before anyone was allowed to know what was in it. The Report was pulped on the orders of Michael Beloff QC – a friend of the Blairs who visited them at Chequers – the legal advisor for the local authority’s insurers on the grounds that what had happened to the children in care over decades was so indefensible that the Council would be uninsurable if the Report was made public (see post ‘It’s A Piece Of Cake’). Hanson was also on that Committee whilst William Hague held out against ordering a Public Inquiry into the abuse of children in care in north Wales, but then caved in and appointed Ronnie Waterhouse to perform the whitewash.
Hanson sat on the Public Accounts Committee after sitting on the Welsh Affairs Committee.
In 1997 after Blair became PM Hanson was appointed PPS to Alistair Darling, who was at the time Chief Secretary to the Treasury. (Alistair Darling certainly collected some very interesting staff – I will return to this in a future blog post.) In 1998 Hanson was appointed Assistant Gov’t Whip and then in 1999 Blair promoted him to the position of Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Wales Office. Which at the time was busy concealing the fact that in its previous incarnation as the Welsh Office, it had spent decades colluding with the paedophile gang and with the help of corrupt lawyer Andrew Park and the corrupt Medical Ombudsman Professor Robert Owen had also concealed the criminal activities of Dafydd and the north Wales mental health services as they facilitated the paedophile ring and abused patients. Hanson may have been appointed to the Wales Office whilst Blair’s lapdog Alun Michael was still Secretary of State for Wales – Alun Michael left the post in the middle of 1999 and was replaced by Paul Murphy. Hanson remained working as Murphy’s minion until he became Blair’s personal minion in 2001.
Paul Murphy was Secretary of State for Wales at the time of the publication of the Waterhouse Report. Murphy said very little about that Report considering what it actually contained, other than he was reassured that no public figures had been involved with the abuse of the children and that no-one had tried to cover up anything at any point.
Paul Murphy is well-known as the mystery man of Welsh politics. The two things that everybody does know about him is that he is a devout Catholic and ‘a bachelor’. Nobody seems to know much else, despite him having been around in Parliament since 1987 (he is now in the Lords). Murphy was the MP for Torfaen. He succeeded Leo Abse, who was a big mate of George Thomas aka Lord Tonypandy. Both Abse and Thomas were posthumously the subject of police investigations concerning child sexual abuse. George Thomas concealed a great deal of wrongdoing whilst he was Secretary of State for Wales (see post ‘The Cradle of Filth’). Before becoming MP for Torfaen, Murphy was a member of the Pontypool/Torfaen Constituency Labour Party 1971-87; and a member of Torfaen Council, 1973-87. So he will have known Leo Abse very well indeed.
Murphy was Minister of State and then Secretary of State for N Ireland, 2002-06 and was involved with negotiating the Good Friday Agreement with Mo Mowlam et al. So he’ll have been party to whatever dirty deal Blair dreamed up to secure that arrangement. Murphy was Chair of the Intelligence and Security Committee, 2005-08 and then appointed Secretary of State for Wales again in 2008. He was removed from the post in 2009 and replaced by Peter Hain, but no-one ever found out why.
David Hanson remained as Blair’s PPS in the years following the Waterhouse Report whilst people angrily denounced Waterhouse as a whitewash and continued to ask questions. Hanson was Blair’s PPS when the Hergest Unit attempted to frame me for threatening to kill Alun Davies – the manager of the Hergest Unit – after I’d called him a fat idiot. Scores of Angels turned up at Court prepared to perjure themselves but the charges against me were dropped on the morning of the case. Huw Daniel, the corrupt judge presiding over the case, became very angry when he was told by the prosecution that the charges of threats to kill had been dropped – Daniel seemed convinced that he was going to be sending me to prison. I was even handcuffed to a guard from Group 4 in readiness. There was never any investigation into why so many Angels had been prepared to perjure themselves. I pleaded guilty to calling Alun Davies a fat idiot and at a later date was sentenced by Huw Daniel to 120 hours of community service. Daniel roared and bellowed throughout the case, yelled that the Hergest Unit were doing an excellent job and then issued a restraining order against me that I was later told was invalid. Details of these extraordinary events can be read in posts ‘Interesting Happenings In The Legal System’ and Behind The Scenes Regarding Those Legal Happenings’.
I was told years later by a mole that the reason why the charges of threats to kill had been dropped was that someone had witnessed the discussions within the Hergest Unit in which the plan to frame me was formulated and had contacted the Court and were threatening to go public on what was happening to patients at the Hergest Unit, including me.
The fun didn’t end there. Last year I discovered that not only had a certificate of indictment been forged at the time of the case stating that I had been convicted of ‘violent disorder’, but the Police National Computer had also been altered, to record a conviction of violent disorder against me. I wrote to the North Wales Police’s legal dept regarding all this last autumn, but they have yet to explain it. See posts ‘Even More Confusion Regarding Those Legal Happenings’ and ‘An Update On Those Legal Conundrums’.
Health is devolved to the Welsh Gov’t but criminal justice isn’t is it Blair?
It was also whilst David Hanson was Blair’s PPS that someone at the GMC forged a letter purporting to be from me, concerning my complaints about the dangerous Dr Tony Roberts at the Hergest Unit (see post ‘The General Medical Council And Yet Another Forged Document’).
In 2005 a former member of staff of Bangor University stole my computer from the open plan office that I shared. That member of staff had a famous brother – John McTernan, Director of Political Operations for Tony Blair! The theft was witnessed by one of my colleagues and McTernan’s brother-in-law was ordered to return the computer or explain himself to the police.
Well Blair, I’m certainly flattered to know that you had even heard about my existence let alone thought it worth subjecting me to the mountains of crap that was poured upon my head during the years that followed the cover-up that was Waterhouse, but if you had not have done all that, you wouldn’t have this blog to deal with. And neither would the numerous other crooks who have caused me so many problems, simply because I tangled with the people who were facilitating the Westminster Paedophile Ring.
In 2005, Hanson was moved to the N Ireland office – he was Minister of State there until 2007, under Secretary of State Peter Hain.
Hanson was Minister of State for Justice, 2007-09! Hanson held this office first under Charlie Falconer, then under Jack Straw. Charlie Falconer made a trip to north Wales in about 2009 – he was invited there by the appalling Betty Williams, MP for Conwy. Not only was Betty someone who ignored complaints about patient abuse in the mental health services, but Betty had previously been a member of Gwynedd County Council whilst they hosted a paedophile ring in their children’s services. During his visit to north Wales, Charlie Falconer gave a lecture at Bangor University, which I attended. Falconer told us all that thanks to the Human Rights Act that New Labour had passed, people in nursing homes could sue if their dignity was breached. What Charlie didn’t say was that he had made it just about impossible to access legal aid so unless the nursing home resident was very wealthy indeed they wouldn’t be able to sue for anything. Someone else was in the audience as well – my lawyer, who as well as acting for me to defend against the gross abuses of the mental health system was also acting for a few other patients in north Wales who were being targeted by the paedophiles’ friends. She had very nearly been put out of business by Charlie’s abolition of legal aid – but I think Charlie would have been delighted to hear that. Not that he did hear it, because Charlie refused to take questions and rushed off, after telling us that he had an urgent appointment. We later found out that Charlie had spent the next few hours at a reception with a select few professors who could be relied upon not to disgrace themselves by saying anything like ‘do you realise that we are all witnessing the harassment of one of the few surviving witnesses to the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal, because she works here in the university and is constantly being arrested for ludicrous reasons, having to avoid cars that are trying to run her off the road, having to move house because of midnight visitors and constant threats, cannot access NHS care for anything at all and now you’ve tried to put her lawyer out of business?’
You should have just chucked a petrol bomb through my window Charlie!
Between 2009-10 David Hanson was Minister of State for Security, Counter-terrorism, Crime and Policing.
Who better than a paedophiles’ friend to hold such a position?
David Hanson has a wife – Margaret. Margaret is well-known to readers of this blog – she is the Vice-Chair of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board!
My post ‘The Most Dangerous Man In The World – Part I’ and this post star paedophiles’ friends who did very well under Blair, but they actually had their feet under the Labour Party’s desk long before Blair was leader. Some like Hillary Coffman went back as far as Michael Foot. But it is noticeable that many, including Ann Coffey and David Hanson, were accepted as Labour Party candidates whilst Neil Kinnock was leader of the Labour Party. The Neil Kinnock who, along with his wife, was close to paedophiles’ friends like Lord Cledwyn years before Kinnock became leader (see post ‘The Cradle of Filth’); the Neil Kinnock who employed Patricia Hewitt as his Press Secretary in 1983 after she had spent nine years as the General Secretary of NCCL, whilst NCCL was affiliated to PIE and campaigned for paedophiles’ rights – Patricia Hewitt later succeeded the paedophile Greville Janner as MP for Leicester West when Greville became Lord Greville; the Neil Kinnock who appointed the noxious Peter Mandelson as Director of Communications for the Labour Party in 1985, after Mandelson had spent three years as a Councillor in Lambeth whose children’s homes were infested with paedophiles and who also sent children into the arms of John Allen in north Wales ‘on placement’; the Kinnock who employed the almighty pain in the bum and bruiser Charles Clarke as his researcher and Chief of Staff, 1981-92, after Clarke had spent a number of years as a Councillor in Hackney, yet another Borough where disadvantaged children in care were being molested.
Neil Kinnock knew many, many years ago about the abuse of children in care and like Blair, he promoted the people who colluded or concealed it, no doubt in an attempt to shore up his own power base. It ensured that he and his family continued to exert an iron grip on the Labour Party, but because he was perceived as such a pillock and was so unpopular in many quarters it didn’t result in him being PM. But it did cause a huge amount of trouble and has left a terrible legacy, particularly in north Wales. In his campaigns, Kinnock always made much of the NHS, the NHS born in south Wales, the child of Nye Bevan and how Labour was the only party which could be trusted with the NHS. In one election campaign, Kinnock spent so much time toadying to the NHS that in one episode of Spitting Image the Kinnock puppet just yelled ‘nurses’ down a megaphone repeatedly – I think Philip Hammond has taken a leaf out of Kinnock’s book, he’s about to give some already quite well-paid Angels a pay rise whilst disabled benefit claimants are becoming destitute. Thanks to you Kinnock, the NHS that you made so much capital out of was rotten to the core, because it was the key institution which was used to facilitate and conceal the organised sexual abuse of children – and it knew that no Labour politician would dare challenge it on any matter.
Now that he is older, the media no longer takes the piss out of Kinnock for being the ‘Welsh windbag’, instead it treats him as a sort of sage who can be wheeled out to tell us all how crap everyone else is. He is becoming as much a creature of myth that Thatcher became – oooh he fought Militant and cleaned up the Party. Cleaned up the Party??? Que?? Kinnock saddled it with Mandelson and the paedophiles’ friends, not to mention Blair. As for the allegations that MI5 bugged and tapped the likes of Patricia Hewitt and Harriet Harman ‘because they were communist sympthisers’ – it’s rather more likely that they did it because they were assisting serious crime. I’m also very sceptical about the story that the First Family of Troughing really enjoy peddling – that at university, Neil and Glenys were known as ‘the power and the glory’. Do they really expect us to believe that a bunch of drunken not very bright student politicians in south Wales in the early 60s coined that term for Glenys and the thick idiot that was Kinnock? That story was probably a creation of Mandelson, along with the notorious 1985 election campaign film ‘Kinnock The Movie’, featuring the two greedy wallies walking along the Great Orme in Llandudno. Why Mandelson chose the Great Orme for his Spielberg bit I don’t know, Glenys came from Holyhead and Kinnock from Tredegar, they had bugger all to do with the Great Orme. Furthermore they lived in London.
I have mentioned in previous posts that one of the Top Doctors who was facilitating the paedophile ring in north Wales had known Kinnock at university. I am wondering if someone else who was at the root of a great deal of the corruption and wrongdoing in the NHS in north Wales might have known Kinnock – Alun Davies, the lethal crook who managed the mental health services in Gwynedd for so long. Davies came from the Rhondda and had started his working life as a pen pusher in the NHS in south Wales. Davies used every contact that he had – in the NHS, in the local authorities, in the private sector, in the voluntary sector – to advance himself and his corrupt friends. Did you perhaps know him Kinnock?
Researching for my posts about Blair, discovering what Kinnock and others had been up to as well and finding out just who was responsible for putting the colleagues, friends and protectors of a paedophile ring in charge of our NHS and other public services – as well as in the Lords – has been a real revelation. I think that I might be beginning to understand the sense of frustration and despair that people who have fought these bastards and their poisonous fuckwittery for decades must have felt.
So to all the Guv’nors, the Drunken Gropers, the Philanderers – you know who you are – who have been smeared and libelled by the molesters’ protectors, have these posts about the Most Dangerous Man In The World as a Christmas present. The series will be continuing as we approach the festive season – you can while away the hours reading my blog and watching the repeats of Last of the Summer Wines that I’m sure the BBC will be screening…
