After Dark Discuss British Intelligence
In a discussion titled “British Intelligence” and broadcast on 16 July 1988, the guests included Merlyn Rees, H. Montgomery Hyde and a man called Robert Harbinson, described by Francis Wheen in The Independent newspaper as follows:
- “Robin Bryans, a… travel writer and sometime music teacher who also goes under the names Robert Harbinson and Christopher Graham. (His opponent) is Kenneth de Courcy… who likes to be known as the Duc de Grantmesnil…. Though both are Irish by birth, both have intelligence connections (Bryans was a friend of Blunt), both are ex- jailbirds and both are – how shall we say? – quite eccentric… (Bryans) denounced de Courcy on the Channel 4 programme After Dark. His allegations are too confused (and too libellous) to be summarised here, but names such as Mountbatten, Shackleton, Churchill, Blunt seem to pop up often.”
- Bryans himself wrote:
- “Before the cameras, we delighted to talk about Adeline de la Feld’s family upsetting Mussolini with their writings. I was then asked by Robin Ramsay of the Lobster magazine about my own early writing which he knew about from his co-editor Stephen Dorril who had interviewed me for his book Honeytrap, the sad story of my friend Stephen Ward hounded by the Establishment to suicide in 1963. But the Channel Four masterminds wanted to know about my war activities and the following day Montgomery Hyde, a barrister, phoned me to warn me that a High Court writ was on its way.
- The journalist Paul Foot described it as “one magnificent edition of After Dark in which Robin Ramsay excelled himself.” During the discussion, another guest, retired GCHQ employee Jock Kane, claimed “that the new procedures recommended by the Security Commission regarding the removal of documents from GCHQ had not been implemented four years later.”
- The following week The Guardian newspaper reported:
- “Thirty Labour MPs yesterday called for a judicial inquiry into claims that the Government has used private security companies to carry out undercover operations on its behalf. A motion, drawn up by Mr Ken Livingstone (Brent E), refers to statements made by Mr Gary Murray – a private investigator, who says he has been employed by the Government – on Channel 4’s After Dark programme.”
In 1959, Robin Bryans, who has died aged 77, published Gateway To The Khyber. It was the first of 12 travel books, and was followed later that year by Madeira, Pearl Of The Atlantic.
While researching this second book, Bryans lived in a small Portuguese pension and enjoyed slipping into the British Club for a glass of Malmsey. But he also spent time with local people. Whether it was in the mountain farms or the fishermen’s cottages, he loved nothing better than writing about their way of life. He had a crisp, anecdotal style, and his work sparkled with colour and detail.
So, top cop, Peter Spindler, has resigned according to Exaro
Why has this decent capable copper felt it necessary to resign ?
Why has he decided to resign while he plays a major role in the Fairbank/Fernbridge investigation?
Look at the photo, look into that man’s eyes. Is he a bottler?
What does it mean that a man of honour resigns from the Fernbridge/Fairbank investigation ?
I ask you. Why would a man of honour resign?
Reviewing some of the comments left by readers replying to the Farewell Madlands post, I noticed that there was particular sadness that Madlands’ article on Jimmy Savile might have been lost forever. So, I’ve decided to recreate Madlands’ excellent post here, complete with all the links.
What Jimmy Savile Really Did
March 27, 2013 by themadlands
If you are not following the revelations about Jimmy Savile closely and believe that he was a loaner who touched-up a few young groupies, then you have been deceived. Jimmy Savile’s actions go far beyond what you can even begin to believe: until you look at the evidence.
In this article I am going to tell you exactly how you have been deceived, why you have been deceived and why it matters to everyone in the UK.
All links in this piece open in new browser windows to allow you to read the further information in conjunction with this piece.
On 11th January 2013, the Metropolitan Police and the NSPCC published their joint report into the Operation Yewtree investigation, titled “Giving Victims A Voice”.
The problems with that report were twofold. Firstly they did not actually give all the victims a voice, only the ones who reported lower-level abuse (and considering the abuse revealed included raping mentally and physically disabled people, the high-level abuse must be, as you will learn, far, far beyond even that). It will also become clear as to why some of the worst abuse will never have been reported to the Police.
The reason for this dumbing-down through an incomplete investigation, and reporting on it, is simple. The authorities failed at all levels when it came to Savile. By limiting the horrors we, the public, find out about, the less likely it is that there will be a public outcry against those who knew about, covered-up for and participated in the abuse at all levels of our society.
The second problem is that their main conclusion was false. It was part of a cover-up. The cover-up is in place to hide from the British public one very simple fact:
Child abusers linked to Jimmy Savile go right to the top of our society and acted with the full knowledge of our Government, security services, Police, Judiciary and Press.
“Evidence” I hear you scream!
DS David Gray, who helped to lead the Savile investigation stated there was no evidence to suggest that he was part of a paedophile ring.
We are meant to belive that a man who abused children over six decades never formed close links with those who shared his sickness? We are meant to believe that a man who had the ear of Royalty, Prime Ministers and the Police was not well-connected enough to know of other paedophiles and act with them? This predatory paedophile acted alone, or at worst as part of a “loose network”.
That sounds to me like we are being deliberately led away from the truth?
Jimmy Savile’s nephew, Guy Marsden, told the press:
“Uncle Jimmy took me to his sick parties”.
In the article he goes on to say:
“A nephew of Sir Jimmy Savile yesterday told how his celebrity uncle attended ‘paedophile parties’.
Guy Marsden was just 13 when ‘Uncle Jimmy’ took him to a wealthy celebrity’s house in London in 1967 for the first of many sordid social gatherings.
Over the next 18 months, Guy and his friends went to numerous ‘parties’ where he believes men sexually abused girls and boys as young as ten. Savile was at many of these events, he said.”
“Guy said Savile sometimes arrived with a man dressed as a priest and he believed the young victims may have come from an orphanage or children’s home.”
Does that sound like a man who is not part of a high-level paedophile ring? How was he informed the parties were happening?
Surely by definition, a group of men arranging for care home children to be brought to private homes to be abused must be….a paedophile ring?
Marsden goes even further, stating:
“The group of runaways ended up in a fabulous house – believed to belong to a famous pop impresario – with a big indoor swimming pool. The celebrity home was one of the party venues.
‘At night you would get about 15 or 20 people turning up. There would be music and tables full of food, we couldn’t believe it. There was everything we needed and we just hung around.
‘At first we automatically assumed the children lived there, but we soon realised they didn’t. They would be brought there, sometimes by Uncle Jimmy, and would stay for six or seven hours until 3 or 4am. They were just little kids, boys and girls.”
Guy Marsden, an eye-witness, close to Savile and with nothing to hide, states clearly not only that a paedophile ring was active, but that “Uncle Jimmy” sometimes supplied the children.
If you had the head of operation Yewtree in front of you now, would you not ask:
“How on earth did you conclude there was no paedophile ring when there is clear witness testimony that states the complete opposite?”
But That Was Just The Tip Of What Jimmy was involved in.
For decades there were rumours of a paedophile ring operating around the town of Scarborough, as this story from the Express shows.
Recently independent investigative reporters have started uncovering the truth of what happened there. It is a story that involves a widespread knowledge amongst the local people, that was ignored due to the power of the people involved in it.
It is alleged to have involved a prominent local businessman, Peter Jaconelli, a friend of Jimmy Savile as the picture on the Express story linked to above shows. There is also evidence it was a paedophile ring that involved local government officials and members of the North Yorkshire Police. The NY Police had evidence and reports regarding the ring, Jaconelli and Savile for decades, but all investigations cam to unexplained halts.
This article from the Real Whitby site, also gives evidence that Savile took children from a care home he had no jurisdiction over, for weekends away in, you guessed it, Scarborough. Jimmy used his cult of personality to take children to the abusers:
“The Sunday People article confirms that Savile took patients from the safety of a secure controlled environment at Rampton to visit his close friends Peter Jaconelli and Jimmy Corrigan. The patients did not meet anyone else.
They were taken to Jaconelli at his Council offices in 1971. During the 1972 visit they met him at one of his ice cream parlours (where Jaconelli is alleged to have routinely committed sexual offences) and from which the public had been specifically excluded, thereby ensuring that there were no witnesses to what happened.
The conclusion is therefore inescapable that Savile chose to take patients from Rampton to Scarborough in preference to taking patients from Broadmoor because:
Rampton is closer to Scarborough and where the other members of Jaconelli’s ring were located.
Scarborough was Savile’s preferred place to offend because Jaconelli’s status ensured they could operate safely without fear of arrest.
The sole reason behind both trips was to move vulnerable people to Scarborough to Jaconelli.
Given the allegations against Jaconelli and Savile, the concern must be that it is highly likely that the patients were abused on both visits, possibly even in the Mayor’s Council Offices.”
Savile was no lone wolf. savile was a procurer of children for multiple high level paedophile rings, operating in Britain with the full knowledge of, and at times participation of, the people who we trust to run our country.
But Jimmy Was Not Just A Local Paedo Ring Procurer.
In 2008 the form childrens home of Haut De La Garenne on the island of Jersey was the centre of unbelievable child abuse allegations. Those allegations were so widespread and so evil that many people simply did not believe them.
The funny thing about Haut De La Garenne is that the initial findings were suddenly criticised. The original Police chief taken off the case and the whole thing was dumbed-down and finally forgotten again.
The problem is that 116 former child residents of the home, stand by what they say about the horrors that went on there. When we speak of horrors, let us be clear, we mean the rape, torture and murder of children by paedophiles.
Without going into details about the horror and cover-up of the Jersey paedophile scandal, I do want to address the Savile link to it.
In 2008 Jimmy Savile sued the Sun newspaper over pieces they had wrote in which the linked him to the abuse at Haut De La Garenne by claiming he visited it on many occasions.
The Sun produced photographic evidence of Savile at the home:
Savile’s response? He slapped a super-injunction on the photo, forcing the Sun to not print it.
So Savile lied. He had visited Haut De La Garenne. Children from the home state he visited on MANY occasions. Even the head of the Police investigation, removed when the revelations about human remains came to light was reported as saying:
“The former head of the Jersey child abuse investigation has said he now suspects that Sir Jimmy Savile was implicated in the Haut de la Garenne children’s home abuse scandal.”
It was also revealed that:
“A solicitor who acted for victims of child abuse in Jersey also told the Guardian that some former Haut de la Garenne residents, both women and men, now claim they were assaulted by Savile in the 1970s.
Alan Collins, a solicitor for several Haut de la Garenne victims, said “a handful” of former residents have now made abuse allegations about Savile. He said Savile’s name was mentioned several times during the police investigation of 2008 but that the evidence did not seem to stack up at the time.”
We are going to go down the rabbit hole a bit deeper now in relation to Jersey, so you can see the implications of what Jimmy Savile was part of. As you have already seen he was evidently a procurer of children for paedophile rings.
This excerpt is from the now defunct News of the World:
“The youngsters were told by care staff the boat rides were treats—only to be assaulted and RAPED at sea by pervert toffs.
Details of the sick attacks emerged as we discovered even more blood has been found in a bath in the dungeon underneath the Haut de la Garenne home—and in the drains. And our reporters have been told how builders on renovations at the home were urged by staff to BURN any bones they dug up.
We also uncover the full extent of the dark forces of corruption hampering the police investigation. We can reveal worried cops feel under so much pressure over the abuse allegations they are preparing to BYPASS Jersey’s own legal system and hand their evidence to our government.
This could include files on up to seven social workers and carers who worked at the sinister home—including one nicknamed the ‘pinball wizard’ who HURLED kids against the walls to see how far they would BOUNCE. At least two previous senior employees of children’s services on the island are also under investigation despite the attempts of corrupt former policemen, politicians and businessmen to scupper the inquiry.
We understand that two weeks ago Jersey ministers SECRETLY VOTED to have senior police investigator Lenny Harper removed from the case because they believed he was too open with the media. But the Chief of Police Graham Power refused.
One of the most serious lines of inquiry in the investitally and physically disabled peularly loaned to wealthy yachtsmen to “do with them what they chose for the day,” according to our source close to the investigation.
“Haut de la Garenne staff described the trips as a treat for children who spent long hours cooped up at the home. But in reality the kids were subjected to the vilest sexual abuse on board the luxury boats.
“Our source said: “The allegations about the yachting community have come in from a number of different people…”
I will go no further than to state that one of the people who regularly sailed around Jersey was The then Prime Minister Edward Heath.
Savile’s pal Edward Heath, who appeared on his BBC1 show Jim’ll Fix It, was Prime Minister at the time.
Bearing in mind what you have read so far and will read from this point on, can you begin to see the implications of what Jimmy Savile may have been involved in, and see reasons why the Government and security services would suppress the truth?
The Glass Elevator Smashes Through The Roof.
In the late 1980′s Prince Charles and Diana were having, as well know, some pretty fundamental marriage problems.
Who did they turn to for assistance? Jimmy Savile. It is incredible, but true. The piece just linked to gives an overview of the story, but you have to look BEYOND what is written to see the reality. This is not a story about Jimmy’s inappropriate behaviour at St James’ Palace, you have to ask: why was he allowed to wander around?
“Savile is understood to have visited Prince Charles’s official London residence several times in the late 1980s when he was acting as a kind of marriage counsellor between Charles and Princess Diana. A spokesman for the Prince of Wales confirmed the prince and Savile formed a relationship in the late 1970s after coming together through their work with wheelchair sports charities. Charles led tributes to Savile when he died a year ago.”
So we have clear confirmation that Savile talked intimately to Charles and Diana. We see that he was also a confirmed friend of Prince Charles for many years. A man who we now know had allegations of paedophilia surrounding him for decades, was allowed to become close personal friends with the heir to the throne? Where were MI5? Are we to believe the security services, who already knew Savile’s lifelong friend Cyril Smith was a paedophile, were not aware? That they had not done a security clearance check on him as would be standard procedure?
It is odd. Negligent even. Perhaps the security services simply never informed Charles or Diana of their knowledge. Perhaps Charles just trusted someone who made themselves appear trustworthy.
Lets join some more dots for you right now.
Elm Guest House, Islington & Richmond.
In late 2012 MP Tom Watson shocked the house to silence when he rose and stated that he had seen clear evidence of a high level paedophile ring operating high in London society, going even to the doors of number 10 itself.
This statement was linked to the dossier on Peter Righton, a disgraced civil servant who networked with other paedophiles as part of the Paedophile Information Exchange. beneath a veneer of civility PIE members carried out sickening abuse.
Righton’s diary is reputed to contain entries were he described his abuse and then marked the boys out of ten for the punishments they could take. In short, these men were absolute monsters.
In 1992 the Evening Standard tried to uncover the paedophile ring involving many of the PIE members and others, operating in London and supplied with boys from the care homes of Islington. Despite it and others having tried to uncover the truth many times, little action was taken and many suggested powerful paedophiles escaped justice. It was dismissed as fantasy and conspiracy theory and buried.
The Islington scandal is linked to that of Elm Guest House. Elm was a gay brothel that also catered for peadophiles. It advertised in coded messages to those paedphiles as a location where there was even a room with film equipment in it.
Operation Fernbridge is currently investigating the Elm guest house scandal, which was forced upon it after care workers from the time leaked evidence onto the internet stating that high level people visited it to abuse children. Those children were supplied from the care homes of Islington. Despite the clear evidence of high level abusers, only two people have been arrested so far.
I do urge you to read as much of this a you can at some stage to see just how extensive and far-reaching the Elm guest house scandal is, and why it is being covered-up. You will also read why it was covered up at the time: because a cabinet minister was implicated in visiting it.
Just in case you are in any doubt that there is a cover-up going on, this excerpt from the Star shows there was:
“But a former detective who worked on the case revealed they were suddenly told to halt the probe.
The furious ex-policeman said: “It wasn’t that we ran out of leads but it reached a point where a warning to stop came.
“It was a case of ‘get rid of everything, never say a word to anyone’. It was made very clear to me that to continue asking questions would jeopardise my career.”
“Evil and probably part of an obvious cover-up. But, how does this link to Uncle Jimmy?” I hear you say. OK, lets move on.
To The Palace.
For ten short days in 1982 the press openly and frequently reported on the Elm guest house scandal as it unfolded. Then, suddenly, despite all the evidence mounting of a paedophile ring involving the government and being covered-up by the government, they stopped.
Perhaps because of hints in some of the stories printed at the time and later.
“The customers included three MP’s and a member of the staff at Buckingham palace.”
Palace link in child sex scandal.
The link had been established between the scandal of care home children from Islington and Richmond being supplied to paedophile brothels, to paedophiles within the Palace.
Now I know you are thinking “I see where you are going, but this is circumstantial evidence. Just because there were paedophiles operating at the Palace, it does not mean Jimmy Savile knew that”.
Let’s just fill you in on a few more details.
Savile was not only “brought in” to help Charles and Diana. He was also called upon to aid Sarah Ferguson.
“I was helping her not get publicity rather than get it – to cool things down….”
Does Jimmy Savile seem a likely person to you to call upon to help you lower your profile? No, me neither. So you have to question the reason for his calling upon.
You probably also don’t know just how cosy he was with the Queen:
“As for Savile’s relationship with the Queen, he suggested it was somewhat lighthearted. “She thinks I’m odd because odd things always seem to happen when I’m at BP,” he said last year, referring to Buckingham Palace. “One time I was at a party there and the Queen said: ‘I do not recognise this person, I bear no responsibility if anything should happen’ – the Queen likes a joke. The next minute I bump into a lady who turns out to be Barbara Bush.
“When she sees me she says: ‘Jimmmyyyy!’ and flings her arms out and knocks champagne all over the woman next to her who says ‘S***!’ in a very loud voice and steps back in her high heel on to the foot of the woman behind. The Queen shook her head, took me by the arm, stood me against the wall and said: ‘Stay there and don’t move!’ So I did. After all she is the Queen.”
Diana mentioned Savile in the “squidgygate” tape:
“She was recorded saying: “Jimmy Savile rang me up yesterday, and he said: ‘I’m just ringing up, my girl, to tell you that His Nibs [Charles] has asked me to come and help out the redhead [Ferguson]‘.”
Along with his friendship with Prince Philip, until a reported falling out that nobody has ever heard a reason for, we have compelling evidence that Savile was welcome at the Palace. Able to basically wander into a Palace and speak with Royalty. A Palace whose staff contained an alleged paedophile ring linked to Elm Guest House.
On 16th February 2013 Exaro News reported that:
“Exaro has established that Haroon Kasir, known as Harry, who was co-manager of the guest house, used to boast that he was “best friends” with Savile. Kasir would tell friends how Savile used to visit him frequently.”
It was also said:
“Harry started to behave strangely after Jimmy died”.
Jimmy Savile. Elm Guest House. The Palace. Now do you see why what Jimmy really got up to has been brushed under the carpet?
One Final Drop Down The Rabbit Hole.
Some celebrities, such as Esther Rantzen, have been less than honest about what they really knew of Jimmy Savile. Esther for example, the “lovely lady” of childline, claimed she only heard one vague rumour back in the 1970′s and dismissed she knew any more in a gushing interview with Piers Morgan.
The problem is that she was told many times, as this article shows:
“ESTHER Rantzen faces claims that she failed to act on Jimmy Savile paedophile rumours.Abuse campaigner Shy Keenan says she alerted her 18 years ago.Shy — who represents the charity The Phoenix Post, a victims’ advocacy group — said she raised concerns she had heard about the depraved star when she was contributing to a TV show.”
Others, are being far more honest.
My final piece of the puzzle comes from Mr Andy Kershaw. In his article he says:
“When the news broke of Jimmy Savile’s death, I sat before the rolling television news channels in a state of exasperation and disbelief. Celebrities, media heavyweights, and even representatives of the great and the good, were scrambling to gush eulogies to a man they were eager to canonise as Saint Jimmy of Stoke Mandeville or, at least, a much-loved national treasure.Every one of these mourners knew better than to pay tribute. For every one of them, as creatures of the media or the entertainment industries, had, for years, heard the persistent rumours about the real Jimmy Savile. Even in death – and for another 12 months – Savile would continue to pull off a public relations swindle of spectacular audacity.”
He goes on to say:
“Typical of those with 20/20 hindsight was Esther Rantzen. Within a couple of days of the Savile scandal breaking, Esther Rantzen, founder of Childline, and someone not previously shy of hobnobbing with Savile, was asking us to believe she had heard the rumours but had dismissed them as “green room gossip”. Later, and presuming to speak on behalf of the nation, Rantzen popped up on BBC News to wring her hands and claim: “We are all guilty now.”
Not me, Esther, old thing. At Radio 1, as soon as I heard the Savile rumours, I gave the guy a very wide berth. And in my autobiography, No Off Switch, written and first published while Savile was still alive, I hinted as strongly as I could that there may be a darker side, describing him as a “veteran Radio 1 DJ, tireless charity worker, another national institution, widely recognised for his interest in young people”.
Note the words I have highlighted. Kershaw states he hinted at the true scale of what Savile did. Now look at the title of his article:
“The Jimmy Savile scandal will not be snuffed out”.
Snuff is of course a term for movies which involve the murder of people in a violent sexual context. Most of these unbelievably evil films involve paedophiles and children. In the age before the internet they were passed around in video cassette for significant sums of money. It was an industry, men got rich out of the absolute evil depicted.
“Category 5″ child porn. The type that Police officers have to watch and state, understandably that is ruins their lives having to do so.
Elm Guest House had video equipment. Men linked to the Elm scandal also had links to child trafficking and porn in the Netherlands.
Jimmy Savile. Elm Guest House. The Palace. The Government. Child Trafficking. Snuff movies.
Another person has stated that Cyril Smith, who as we know was a lifelong friend of Savile, was friends with a noted Satanist and visited his house.
Others are also now beginning to break their traumatised silence on having seen children killed in satanic paedophilie rituals involving notable people including Jimmy Savile.
Jimmy Savile. Elm Guest House. The Palace. The Government. Child Trafficking. Snuff movies. Satanism.
Now can you begin to see why, even if only half of the above is true, why the establishment have covered-up the truth about what Jimmy Savile did?
Discount the Satansim as fantasy. You still have links to Royalty, Politicians, paedophile rings containing murderers and cabinet ministers, child trafficking and snuff movies.
Don’t want to believe the royalty stuff? Take that out as well. You still have The Government, child trafficking, snuff movies and a paedophile ring containing politicians and a child murderer.
Can’t contemplate the snuff movies stuff, take that out as well. In fact, take it all out, everything you have just read.
Do you still, after reading it, really believe Savile was a lone wolf who touched up a few women and had sex with willing groupies, and that there has been no cover-up?
Of course you don’t. You have a brain. But just in case you are still doubtful. Edwina Currie was asked on Twitter if there has been a cover-up about Elm Guest House:
If there was a cover-up there, then there was a cover-up over Savile.
Why This Matters To You.
Some have dismissed this scandal, even if you believe all I have told you, as all in the past. Old news. people now old or dead. irrelevant. A previous generation, different rules.
It Could not happen again.
Deep down you already know it could happen again. If they got away with it last time, there are probably protected people doing the same thing to innocent stolen children right now. Safe in the knowledge they can do what they want because the establishment is covering up for them.
I know you are thinking “why would they cover this evil up?”
One of the named people who was allegedly photographed at Elm guest house having sex with children was a top politician. He has links to both David Cameron and Nick Clegg and their families. If he is arrested, people will ask how on earth none of those people knew.
How did the security services, who vetted BBC employees throughout the 1960′s and 1970′s, not know about Savile, or Elm guest house and inform anyone? How was Savile allowed anywhere near the Royal family?
How did the currently serving politicians, who were at the time senior councillors and legal people linked to Islington and Richmond councils never hear about what was evidently a widespread scandal of child trafficking in their boroughs?
How did nobody in the BBC ever hear anything so dark and horrifying? Even with the current stories of yet more BBC paedophile rings involving staff on both Doctor Who and Eastenders showing that their “saw no evil, heard no evil” stance simply isn’t credible?
How did so many ex-Police and care workers never get listened to when they spoke out about both the scale of the abuse and the fact they were warned off, time after time after time?
The truth, whatever the exact details of what Jimmy did, or what the Politicians and others did, is:
THEY ALL KNEW.
THEY ALL KNOW.
THEY ARE ALL CONVERING IT UP TO PROTECT THEIR OWN SKINS.
What happened in this country is a national scandal. If the truth is allowed to come out, through the Police involved in operations Yewtree, Fernbridge and Fairbank having their shackles taken off and the evidence stolen from them by MI5 in the 1980′s, including photo’s, are returned to them, then it would make the Profumo scandal look like a tea party.
If you have a shred of compassion for children and a sense of right and wrong, what you have read should have left you shaking with anger.
Innocent children, taken from care homes, disowned and then destroyed by powerful, evil men and all covered-up by other powerful people who want to avoid a scandal.
And that is just the “highlight” scandal. There is also what happened in Wales. It has happened across the country time and time and time again. Time and time and time againt, it has been covered-up. To stop you from getting angry and demanding it stop and people in power bein held to account.
IF the past is ignored, it sends a message to those who would act in the same way today that we will accept it.
If you now walk away from this piece without acting, you are tolerating the abuse.
…….It’s the constant refrain of those who wish to make excuses for the lack of action taken against organised child abuse in the last forty years. As if parents and grandparents couldn’t care less if their children were raped back then.
It’s a lie, as this story from 1977 demonstrates, they did care, they just didn’t know the full extent of it.
Now we know, parents and grandparents can not turn a blind eye to it. Now we know, we can’t conveniently forget about it.
Tasked with flushing out paedophiles preying on vulnerable youngsters at children’s homes, Detective Chief Inspector Clive Driscoll relished the challenge.
But the officer suddenly found himself booted off the case and put on a disciplinary after revealing politicians were named among the suspects.
At least one of the figures is understood to have been an MP.
And former Labour councillor Anna Tapsell claims she was visited by a police chief to “warn her off” after she raised concerns that detectives would not properly investigate allegations of paedophile activity in care homes.
Mr Driscoll launched his probe into child sex abuse claims in the South London borough of Lambeth in 1998.
But he claims Scotland Yard began meddling as soon as the politicians were named.
Well, I’ll tell you. If it’s an underage boy raped it’s **************, whereas, if it’s an underaged girl raped it’s ************* and this is an underage girl, so it must be ***************!

Funny how history repeats itself.
1993 John Major’s Government cuts funding as sensitive child abuse allegations hit the headlines
N.A.Y.P.I.C. is the consumer-led organization first set up in 1979 until 1993 when funding came to a halt. This being at a time when we were exposing atrocities such as:
- Langton house (American Medical International private care hospital for children) psychiatric hospital, which we had closed down making News at 10 and costing AMI 8 Million Pounds.
- ‘Pin Down’ which prompted a public enquiry
- The Nottingham ritual abuse case that we helped work on with, Channel 4 Dispatches.
- Melanie Klein House secure unit Greenwich which we had closed down
- The Carol Cazier (who died mysteriously during our investigation and shortly before the court case, which was about to reveal influential people’s involvement) case dating back to 1973, which made front page news in the Daily Express back then.
- Our child pornography and snuff movies exposure, which made front page in the Times newspaper.
- The Bromley privatization of children’s homes (selling children with the homes), which we took to the hight court , the council narrowly escaping paying £600,000 if we won, however the director of social services and the chair of SSD both being arrested and put in the cells for taking bribes and countless more exposures which we are well documented on exposing
2013 David Cameron’s Government cuts funding as sensitive child abuse allegations hit the headlines
Graham Wilmer, director of the Lantern Project, said, “We shall be closing down in two weeks’ time. The outgoing government did promise to set up a national strategy that would include funding for such work [victim support], but this was cancelled by the new government.”………….
………….Jonathan Bird, operations manager of the National Association for People Abused in Childhood (NAYPAC), said “Some organisations are having to close because of lack of funding.”
As everyone knows Leon Brittan has a poor memory and can’t recall what he did with the files concerning institutional child sexual abuse that Geoffrey Dickens MP gave him when he was the Home Secretary.
So I doubt he’ll remember being the defence council for the Cult of Scientology back in 1968. Here’s an aide memoire.
Wednesday, 7 August 1968 The Guardian
The Church of Scientology of California was ordered in the High Court yesterday to pay the costs of the publishers of three national newspapers whom they had brought to court to face injunction proceedings.
Mr Justice Fisher also ordered that the Church would not proceed with libel actions against the News of the World, Ltd., Beaverbrook Newspapers, Ltd., and Daily Mirror Newspapers, Ltd., until the costs are paid.
At the start of yesterday’s hearing, counsel for the Church, Mr Leon Britton, told the Judge that he was no longer asking for the interlocutory injunctions restraining further publication of the alleged libels.
After a 65-minute hearing in private, the Judge gave permission for his judgment to be published.
He said the Church claimed damages alleging libel in articles in the “News of the World,” “Sunday Mirror,” and “Daily Express.” An application on Thursday for ex parte injunctions was refused. The defendants had filed evidence for yesterday’s hearing, but counsel for the church now said he no longer asked for the orders. Accordingly the applications would be dismissed, and the only question he had to decide was on costs.

Behind the scenes The Needle’s master craftsman Daedalus has been working on an interactive and user friendly resource for Operation Greenlight.
Today we can announce the launch of what The Needle’s team have christened GLO.
Operation Greenlight is compiling as many sourced cases of child abuse in children’s institutions across the UK as we can. To date, with your help, we have catalogued over 270 such institutions.
Child abusers fall into two very broad categories. The opportunist child abuser and the predatory child abuser.
The predatory child abusers will seek out opportunities to sexually abuse children. They will seek employment in occupations which give them access to children. Members of the Paedophile Information Exchange an organisation which enabled child abusers to network legally for 10 years between 1974 and 1984, and illegally since 1984 in underground forms is an example of a club for predatory paedophiles.
By focusing exclusively on sexual abuse that took place in children’s institutions, Operation Greenlight hopes to focus in on these predatory child abusers and reveal the bigger picture of child abuse in the UK over the last five decades.
Operation Greenlight is open source, there is no copyright. You have helped us create this resource and you are free to use it.
We hope that you will continue to help us, as it is our aim to make this as comprehensive as we can.

It’s no longer a conspiracy theory now that it’s in the MSM right ?
Hundreds of files on celebrities, politicians and other VIPs accused of sex attacks and abuse were so heavily protected by senior police that investigating officers could not access them, it emerged today.
Information on high profile suspects was marked as ‘secret’ or ‘restricted’ and only available to a small number of officers – a system which may have helped prolific offenders like Jimmy Savile and MP Cyril Smith escape prosecution.
The approach to sensitive files was designed to stop officers from leaking information to the media, experts say.
The issue of detectives being unable to access relevant intelligence was highlighted in a report on the effectiveness of the Police National Database (PND) in the wake of the Savile scandal.
