Sick And Malicious Edits On Teresa Cooper’s Wiki Page by ‘Westminster’ Source.

I had to think long and hard before publishing this, not because the story isn’t true but because it has actually been written by a professional journalist who I can not name. It is a draft of an article that was due to be published last Sunday by a national newspaper but it was spiked and I’ve been told that it won’t now be published.

I count Teresa Cooper as a good friend and over the last year and a half I’ve known about what appears to be a campaign of harassment against her which would strain the nerves of anyone who might unwittingly become the victim of something similar.

The apparent malicious editing of her Wikipedia page by someone using a parliamentary IP address is just the latest episode in a long list which have included a wrongful conviction (overturned on appeal), threatening blackmail letters (which betrayed the knowledge of personal information which could only have come from an official source), and even finding out that she was illegally blocked from calling the emergency services (the police and her telecommunications provider accepted this but could offer no explanation as to how this was done or by whom.)

Teresa Cooper is not the only person to have been the victim of sick and malicious wikipedia edits made from parliamentary computers. Jean Charles de Menezes,  Lee Rigby, Damilola Taylor have all had their Wiki pages edited and in June it was revealed that a civil servant who made offensive alterations to Wikipedia pages on the Hillsborough disaster using Government computers was sacked. HERE

As I have mentioned above, the article below is only a draft. It ends, “WESTMINSTER COMMENT TO COME ……”

My understanding is that there was no comment from Westminster.


“He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.” – George Orwell


A PROMINENT child abuse campaigner claims her Wikipedia page has been altered – by someone at the Palace of Westminster.

Teresa Cooper says abusive comments about her were posted on the site in an attempt to mock her work over the past two decades.

The cruel taunts made references to both Jimmy Savile and Gary Glitter despite her work in exposing child abusers.

Ms Cooper, 47, says that she was one of six women who were drugged and sexually assaulted in a children’s care home in Kent during the 1970s and 80s.

Since then she has fought to highlight the horrific abuses which happened while she was a resident in the Church of England run Kendall House home in Gravesend.

But she was left horrified when she saw her Wikipedia page had been altered to described her as a “renowned fantasist”.

The damaging comments described her as a “danger to herself and society at large” before bizarrely claiming she was banned from her local Tesco after “she accused the manager of stalking her when all he did was asked if she would like a buy one get one free on condoms”.

Making reference to notorious paedophiles Savile and Glitter the altered Wiki content said: “She is a world expert on child abuse, having completed the approved training courses at the internationally recognised centre in Kent, Kendall House.

“She soon rose to the rank of housemistress, where, on Savile wing, she attempted to beat the world record for violent abuse on children, previously held by Gary Glitter, of which she managed to match and exceed his score.

“She takes pride in being an attention seeking, child abusing, self centred, self absorbed, misogynistic, horse faced, rat nosed old slag and her cry of ‘I’ve been abused, buy my book’ can be heard all across Essex throughout the week.”

The in a final dig it stated: “On weekends, she likes to put on a tracksuit, sunglasses and smoke large cuban cigars.”

After turning detective Teresa traced the IP address – the unique numerical label assigned to each computer –  used to alter the Wikipedia page and found it had been used in Westminster.

Teresa’s medical files show that by the time she’d left Kendall House, aged 16, she’d been sedated 1,248 times with doses of tranquillisers and anti-depressants designed for adult schizophrenics and Parkinson’s disease sufferers, despite never having the conditions.

She later had three children with birth defects, which she believes were caused by the drugs.

In 2010 the Church agreed an “out-of-court settlement” with her, although no amount was mentioned and she received no apology.

Wikipedia is an online encyclopaedia that is free to use and can be contributed to by anyone, anywhere. It has volunteer editors monitoring the site to try and ensure only factual information is displayed across its millions of pages.

Teresa, who reported the incident to the police, said: “I was totally shocked. I’ve read about it happening before, about Hillsborough. I traced the IP address and found it had been used in Westminster.

“It’s obviously been done by someone who knows about the work and campaigning I’ve been doing.

“I’ve been to the police but so far they’ve come up against a brick wall. I just want to know who would do such a cruel thing and why?”

Victor Montagu MP, Previously The 10th Earl Of Sandwich

Victor Montagu disclaimed his title ,along with his right to sit in the House of Lords, in 1964 to become member of parliament for South Dorset. He was also a paedophile.

He was a right wing member of the Conservative Party and might have been expected to have upheld family values but when his wife divorced him in 1958 he instead began to sexually abuse his own son who was just 7 years old at the time. Victor Montagu was educated at Eton and Trinity College, Cambridge and perhaps this was just the way he’d been taught to behave.

The account below by Robert Montagu, the son he raped and abused, appeared in the Mail on Sunday. A book by Robert Montagu appears next month.

Robert Montagu knows of 10 other young boys that his father abused, including the paper boy but suspects that he abused at least 20 children.

The family became aware of the sexual abuse when Robert was 11 years old and he was quickly packed off to prep school.

The police were not informed and Victor Montagu continued to sexually abuse other young boys.

Victor Montagu died in 1995.

NPG x191411; (Alexander) Victor Montagu by Rex Coleman, for  Baron Studios

Victor Montagu, Member of Parliament for South Dorset.

When Robert Montagu, younger brother of the Earl of Sandwich, first decided to publish his memoir, he thought he’d present it as fiction, using a pseudonym, such was the painful nature of the story that was about to unfold.

His was a disturbing tale about an innocent seven-year-old boy whose father confused love with lust and abused him on an almost daily basis until he was 11.

Yet Robert, son of the 10th Earl of Sandwich, knew all too well this was not fiction.

And when A Humour Of Love is published next month, it will be under his own name.

In making that choice, he knows he is risking everything, not only his family name but his good relations with his sisters and his brother John, the 11th Earl, none of whom know of his decision to expose their father, who Robert believes abused up to 20 boys.

Letter to Guardian from 1963 from a Peter Righton on Books dealing with Sex for 14-year olds

Originally posted on Desiring Progress:

Below is a letter published in the Guardian from March 23rd, 1963, from a Peter Righton, here described as ‘Tutor, Organiser for Wiltshire The Workers’ Educational Association’, address in Devizes, Wiltshire. It is not entirely clear if this is the same Righton, but it seems likely. Righton had taught at Redhill School, Maidstone, from 1957 to 1962 (see the name gallery at a site for the school), apparently not leaving in 1964 as earlier reported (Stewart Payne and Eileen Fairweather, ‘Country house hideaway of disgraced care chief’, Evening Standard, May 6th, 1993), so it be perfectly possible that he had relocated in Wiltshire and taken up a position with the WEA at this time. Not a great deal is known about Righton’s activities around this time, before he became established in the world of social work and child care by the late 1960s at the…
