Elsewhere on The Needle: Edward Heath: The Paedophile Prime Minister

Aug 3, 2015

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) is to investigate allegations concerning Wiltshire Police’s handling of an alleged claim of child sexual abuse made in the 1990s.

It is alleged that a criminal prosecution was not pursued, when a person threatened to expose that Sir Edward Heath may have been involved in offences concerning children. In addition to this allegation, the IPCC will examine whether Wiltshire Police subsequently took any steps to investigate these claims.

The allegations were referred to the IPCC by Wiltshire Police following allegations made by a retired senior officer.

If you or someone you know has been affected by the issues referred to, you can speak to trained counsellors at the NSPCC on 0800 800 5000 or email help@nspcc.org.uk

IPCC

And a statement from Wiltshire police

A spokesperson for Wiltshire Police said:

“Following the announcement today regarding an independent investigation by the IPCC into allegations concerning how Wiltshire Police handled an alleged claim of child sex abuse made in the 1990’s, we are carrying out enquiries to identify if there are any witnesses or victims who support the allegations of child sex abuse.

“On becoming aware of the information, Wiltshire Police informed the IPCC and later made a mandatory referral. The IPCC investigation will specifically consider how the Force responded to allegations when they were received in the 1990’s.

“Sir Edward Heath has been named in relation to offences concerning children. He lived in Salisbury for many years and we would like to hear from anyone who has any relevant information that may assist us in our enquiries or anyone who believes they may have been a victim.

“We are working closely with the NSPCC to ensure that any victims are appropriately supported. They provide trained helpline counsellors to listen and provide assistance.

“We take all reports of child abuse, either current or that occurred in the past very seriously. Victims will receive support throughout any investigation and associated judicial process.

“If there is evidence of offences having been committed we will ensure that , if possible, those responsible are held to account through a thorough and detailed investigation. This includes any other parties who are identified as having been involved in child sex abuse.

“Some people may never have spoken out about the abuse they have suffered but we would urge them to please contact us and to not suffer in silence.

“Please call the NSPCC on 0808 800 5000 or email help@nspcc.org.uk as they have dedicated staff in place to deal with victims or if you have information that may help police please call us via 101.” Ends

Chief Executive of the NSPCC, Peter Wanless said:

“It’s important that people who believe they have been victims of abuse have the confidence to speak out knowing that their voices will be listened to.

Whether abuse happened in the past, or is occurring today, whether those being accused are authority figures or not, allegations of crimes against children must be investigated thoroughly.   While some people wait years before speaking out, we would urge them to act quickly so they can get help as soon as possible. Our trained helpline counsellors are always on duty round the clock to listen and provide assistance.”

    I think it’s safe to say now that the lid is finally off Pandora box and anyone still oblivious to the scale of what went on has been rudely awakened this afternoon.

    Savile, Jersey kids homes, sailing holidays on heaths yacht. All out there now.

  2. You could not make it up! Well done Gojam! you have helped unearth a nugget!

  3. gw

    Interesting article from Matthew Paris on an alleged attempted by Czech intelligence to blackmail Heath:

    David icke told these story’s years ago this is not new news

    • gw

      Pretty sure the IPCC wading in is “new news”

    • tdf

      Colin,

      Icke also said country singer Boxcar Willie was a reptilian ‘shape-shifter’ and more recently he has said that the Moon is a hologram. Or a spaceship. Or a hologram of a spaceship.

      Given this, it is hard to take him seriously, even if one or two things he said might have a hint of truth in them.

      • colin

        Tdf thanks for that you are right in what you say,I would rather that the living paedos would be brought to justice, like everyone else I am fed up hearing yes he would have be charged and we missed the opportunity

  5. Smacks to me of a deliberate tactic to draw attention away from the real culprits. Dead ex PM who intensely disliked Thatcher and everything she stood for. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiight….. yeah, far right man….

  6. tdf

    I’m also a bit sceptical of these allegations coming up now.

    I night give them more credence if Bandini or More Barking turn up to rubbish them, those two are usually accurate reverse indicators, lol.

  7. colin

    Gw ipcc wading in are they only 25 to 30 years to late
    Gojam what I was meaning is that it is not new news about Ted heath being a nonce regardless of where it happend

    So the crown decided that it would rather drop one case than proceed with two. The crown should be pressed for the legal grounds for staying the original proceedings. The commissioner of the Met Police should be pressured as to the involvement of his Special Branch, they would have been briefed. The trial judge should be pressured as to his actions upon the application by the crown to stay proceedings.

      Is it something to do with a person can say anything they wish in the witness box without fear of being sued or is that just an urban myth. This person got let off to stop him saying something incriminating Heath ??

      • Sabre

        You can say anything in court, if national security is at stake a case will be heard wholly or partly ‘in camera’ . Anything you say in court must not be a contempt of court and more seriously perjury.

    Heath was the ideal Prime Minister at the time, a man so easily controlled could be relied upon to sell UK sovereignty to what is now the EU.

    • anonymous

      “a man so easily controlled could be relied upon to sell UK sovereignty to what is now the EU.” That sounds about right to me and the terrible question that comes to mind is was it a chicken and the egg thing, I’d put nothing past the psychopaths in power.

      • anonymous

        My meaning is, was there pre-existing evidence of his perversion that was used as leverage or was there just suspicion of it and he was allowed to carry on to gain that leverage for them.

      • Sabre

        He was warned against cottaging by the old bill early in his parliamentary career which literally perversely made him a candidate for high office.

  10. tdf

    “Heath was the ideal Prime Minister at the time, a man so easily controlled could be relied upon to sell UK sovereignty to what is now the EU.”

    This is real b.s. Heath was true believer in EEC, didn’t need to be controlled or blackmailed.

    • Sabre

      A pity he didn’t consult the electorate until after the fact.

    • Sabre

      Right at the end of the manifesto.

      If we can negotiate the right terms, we believe that it would be in the long-term interest of the British people for Britain to join the European Economic Community, and that it would make a major contribution to both the prosperity and the security of our country. The opportunities are immense. Economic growth and a higher standard of living would result from having a larger market.

      But we must also recognise the obstacles. There would be short-term disadvantages in Britain going into the European Economic Community which must be weighed against the long-term benefits. Obviously there is a price we would not be prepared to pay. Only when we negotiate will it be possible to determine whether the balance is a fair one, and in the interests of Britain.

      Our sole commitment is to negotiate; no more, no less. As the negotiations proceed we will report regularly through Parliament to the country.

      A Conservative Government would not be prepared to recommend to Parliament, nor would Members of Parliament approve, a settlement which was unequal or unfair. In making this judgement, Ministers and Members will listen to the views of their constituents and have in mind, as is natural and legitimate, primarily the effect of entry upon the standard of living of the individual citizens whom they represent.

      Our old friend Lord McAlpine shows up again in the MI6 front organisation designed to manufacture consent for the EEC ex post facto.

      Those in power didn’t turn a blind eye to child rape and murder with the risks involved just because some toffs like to get off in an evil and perverted manner. If you believe that all of this has been to protect some filthy hobbies you are a lunatic. Geo-Politics and global corporate finance are worth the risks involved from the point of view of those involved.

  11. shall I be the first to say it?
    Thankyou very much to the retired police officer who finally blew the whistle on Edward Heath, by lodging the complaint to IPCC about what he knew.
    Hopefully such a course of action will allow any survivors and whistleblowers to be able to come forward and tell their stories, to police or to press… or a relevant MP.

    With The Official Secrets Act finally out the window… maybe we can have a former close protection officer, who witnessed Heaths ‘alleged’ crimes first hand, come forward and give his accounts. AHEM!

    Let’s have a song! Let’s have a fucking party! :D OUTSIDE WESTMINSTER! This summer! Street party to be held in protest of on-going CSA cover-ups… All of us! Campaigners, survivors, whitsleblowers… Needle team, everyone of you enlightened commentators… Icke, Brand can attend… that taxi driver who cracks me up… not a protest, a street party! :D

    WE ALL WANT TO SEE THESE CRIMES EXPOSED AND THE PERPS BROUGHT TO ACCOUNT!… God theres so much hate amongst supposedly like minded individuals… bollocks Im having a drink

    The Pierces! :D

    so if ted heath was an easily controlled nonce(once he had been rumbled and protected) how come he had to go?
    could this latest round of the “heath rumours” be more smoke and mirrors from the school of clockwork orange .
    cui bono?especially if the rumours of his nature or a cover up (as the rumours were untrue)are found to be without merit.

    that he was gay,that he may have been rumbled cottaging by the kgb and the head of london station told this to a very senior uk spook as the russians thought he was a decent chap to do business with and would help to avoid nuclear armageddon ,that he may have liked young MEN which was illegal at the time all seem likely however it is quite a jump from that to “he was a murderous child molester”.
    he was also a weak pm and only had partial support from his party, he was pro united europe and a “one nation tory” all of these would make him a target for those with a more radical “corruption in the service”,gladio b,pro a usa dominated nato,pro corporate globalisation,monday club far right domestic type agenda.

    considering rinkagate and norman’s troubles i recon it is plausible he was “dealt with”by the same dark forces as them and that this latest development is an extension of the same tactics with a win win payload.if there is evidence he was a csa perpetrator it is a win to expose it fairly safely and blame the dead,if there is no evidence it is an even bigger win in that “such vile rumours about great men need stopping”.

    CUI BONO?

    • Sabre

      He had to go because he lost the confidence of the Tory party. The miners humbled him, unemployment, strikes, inflation, 3 day week, power cuts. You can only control someone if he has power or influence no matter what leverage you hold over him, the downside of the democratic system old chap. You need the dirt on a range of targets. As McMillan said “events dear boy, events”

  13. gw

    My thoughts;

    Firstly why do the police insist on tagging in ‘phone the nspcc’. Streuth. And a quote from Wanless!! Give me strength…

    Secondly I think that it has been raised by a senior police officer is significant. I have always thought this is the best avenue to pursue enquiries.

    Which brings me to;

    I really, really hope all avenues have been explored before this call for witnesses / victims!

    • Sabre

      Because they know that no bastard has any faith in them. Luckily not many people know that the NSPCC sat on their hands re the Northern Grooming scandal because it was a racial hot potato. The NSPCC must have had intelligence from the front line about the kids that were going missing from care homes in Islington and Hackney and undoubtedly everywhere else. In Hackney it wasn’t always the staff directly doing the damages, sometimes pimps would show up to take ‘their girls’ away whether staff or even the girls agreed.

    • Sabre

      The staff didn’t always report what was in effect child abduction by rapists and enslavers let alone physically intervene.

  14. anonymous

    From higher up in the comments…..
    “He was warned against cottaging by the old bill early in his parliamentary career which literally perversely made him a candidate for high office.”
    Had he been jailed then for 6 months for importuning his political career would have probably been over and hopefully a lot of misery avoided, not to mention what different path history may have taken. It seems though that there would have been several other candidates who could have been substituted for him, maybe any crimes committed by M.P.’s should attract a much harsher sentence than that given to the general public.

    • Sabre

      Those that truly wield real power need corrupt place men, it would have been contrary to their interests to fine or jail him. The unavoidable misery is the cost ( paid by victims ) for the selected historical path that benefits the powerful.

  15. dpack

    i think warned against cottaging by the kgb more worrying

  16. nuggy

    i never took the heath allegations seriously before but maybe i was wrong has anybody actually come forward and accused heath of abusing them.

  17. Sabre

    Everyone was primed to jump on Heath’s corpse, slight backtrack, everyone full of shame stares at their feet. Phew that was close.

    More to come …………………,

  18. The statement by Wiltshire Police? One hoped for “Bent and corrupt coppers” but alas was disappointed.
