Little Old Lady jailed for loving her trees

Meet Ireland’s most unlikely martyr: The little old lady sent to prison  for trying to save her trees

Today, like any other Sunday, Teresa Treacy should be sitting down ­ to roast dinner in her ­Tullamore home. She would be joined by her sister Mary, her brother Patrick, and almost certainly some of the nieces and grandnieces she has helped raise ­during her lifetime.
Although she has no children of her own, the entire family regards ­Teresa as much more than an aunt: she has always been cousin, uncle, grandparent and friend, all rolled into one.
She has taken her nieces away on holiday, cared for her grandnieces and nephews so their parents could work or study, and always remembered to bake a cake and put ribbons on the gate when anyone had a birthday.

Today, however, Teresa will not be enjoying her roast potatoes surrounded by loved ones: instead, her lunch will be eaten from a canteen tray at the Dóchas Centre in Mountjoy Prison, home to drug couriers, prostitutes and savage killers like the so-called ‘Scissor Sisters’.
Instead of relatives, there will be prison wardens; instead of her own bed, a jail cot.
But perhaps worst of all for Teresa Treacy − a woman who in her whole life has never been given so much as a speeding ticket − is that her night in Mountjoy means she will have to spend another night away from the home she built. In particular, she will be kept from the forest she planted and nurtured: the same forest which she has ended up in prison trying to protect.
It is a turn of events that has left her family and many ordinary people across Ireland open-jawed with disbelief. While the bankers, developers and politicians who ruined the country enjoy lives of comfort, a little old lady is sent to prison for trying to stop trees being cut down. Worse still, her jail sentence is indeterminate. Until she agrees to let the ESB chop down her trees, she will stay in prison for ‘contempt of court’.

Last night her brother Patrick, 62, who visited Teresa for the first time in jail yesterday, said she has ‘no plans’ to back down and purge her contempt. ‘She is not going to budge,’ he said. ‘Teresa absolutely adores her trees and if she had to go to the moon to protect them she would.

‘She is not going to budge. Teresa absolutely adores her trees and if she had to go to the moon to protect them she would.'

‘My sister is a very shy woman who barely leaves her home. Those trees are like her children so she will fight on to protect them.
‘I’m worried she won’t cope in prison but she must have some strength to do what she did. I think she’ll stay there for as long as it takes’.
And as much as Teresa’s family admire her stand, they still seem dazed by the turn of events that has led a beloved and popular 65-year-old to prison − and national prominence.
‘The whole thing is so bizarre,’ her niece Edel told the Irish Mail on Sunday. ‘It’s unbelievable what has happened. It’s like a movie and we are all in it but it doesn’t really feel real. I don’t think the shock has actually hit us yet. We are a very close and private ­family and we have been catapulted into the spotlight for all the wrong reasons.
‘People can’t believe what has happened and the support for our aunt in the town has been overwhelming.’
The story began in 2006 when Teresa − along with 83 other landowners in her area − objected when the ESB and Eirgrid announced plans to ‘improve power quality’ for consumers in the area.
‘Teresa brought the workers in from the ESB and told them of her fears,’ said her brother Patrick. ‘She showed them the care she had given her trees. She thought they would understand how she felt but still the letters came, saying that the work was going ahead.’

In 2008, planning permission was granted and eventually everyone except Teresa allowed access to their land. Lawyers for the ESB and Eirgrid said she was the ‘last person standing in the way of the completion of the power line’.
On Monday, after several meetings with the electricity board and court appearances, Teresa was arrested and jailed.
High Court Judge Daniel ­Herbert said he ‘admired her principles’ but said he could not condone her actions because it was against the Constitution. He said, ‘We may as well sink into anarchy.’
‘No one expected the judge to jail her, she thought if she relayed her fears in court she would be understood, but that didn’t happen,’ said Patrick.
‘She was so descriptive and eloquent as she described her love of the land.’

‘Our aunt Mary, Teresa’s older sister, is just heartbroken,’ said Edel. ‘She just can’t talk about it, we have to keep an eye on her.
‘The gardaí were very nice, they were so uncomfortable doing what they had to do but they phoned us that evening to say she was in jail and was doing okay.’
Edel, who is due her second child this week, is full of praise for her aunt.
‘When I had my son ten years ago, Teresa and Mary minded him and let me go to college. Not many people would have all that support so I’m very lucky.
‘Not only did she mind him, but she took a great interest in everything he did and gave me lots of good advice. She is not going to be around when my new baby comes along and I know she will be deeply hurt over it.’
Indeed, the devotion of the family to Teresa is unwavering − and unsurprising. Despite never marrying or having any children, Mary and Teresa played a huge part in rearing Patrick’s three daughters, nieces Edel, 30, Ann, 29, and Audrey, 26 – and their families in turn.
Every Christmas the entire Treacy clan celebrate at their aunt’s house and are deluged with the ‘finest food and treats’.
Audrey explained: ‘She is not just an aunt to us, she is like a cousin, uncle, grandparent and friend, all rolled into one.
‘If it was someone’s birthday she would have balloons on the gate, cakes, buns and the best of food on the table for us.
‘We are all extremely close, that is why we are finding this so hard. She is no ordinary aunt − she is a fantastic friend.
‘This is a woman who barely leaves her property, she will stay at home and bake, or have a party for us, but would never cause trouble for anyone.’
Ms Treacy has never come to the attention of the gardaí before. She owns a Ford Fiesta which she changes every few years and her family said she is extremely careful on the roads. A talented chef, she once won every category in a local horticulture show in Tullamore. ‘She loves her sweets and chocolates’ said Edel. ‘She doesn’t drink or go out, she has a great sense of humour around us, but she is shy with other people.

‘Like most families we have our own little language and way of going on. But we always have a great laugh together.’
After her three nieces were born, Teresa told her brother Patrick she would take care of them while he and his wife Mary worked.
She adores the girls and every year when they were small Teresa would rent a mobile home somewhere in Ireland where she would take them on their holidays.
‘She would spend hours reading and playing with them as well as giving them special treats,’ said Patrick. ‘They would all jump in the car and head off to Donegal, Clare or Kerry.’
Indeed, Teresa had been a family-oriented person since her youth. The daughter of a butcher, she has spent most of her life in Tullamore with her family.
Her father Thomas was in his 20s when he moved from Co. Galway to Co. Offaly to set up a butcher’s shop on Bridge Street in the busy town.
There he met his future wife Ann and the couple went on to have four children, Ann, Mary, Teresa and Patrick. Growing up, Teresa was described as a shy but bright child who did exceptionally well at school. She attended Rochfortbridge Secondary School where she excelled in maths and English before leaving school at 15.
‘She was always good at anything to do with maths or business,’ said Patrick. ‘Her homework was always right and she takes great care in everything she does.
‘It was the norm for people to leave school early in those days but Teresa has always read the papers. She is highly intelligent.
‘I remember years ago her telling us that a huge economic crash was going to hit Ireland. She was right.’
After Teresa’s parents passed away, her brother Patrick took over the family business and she went to work for him as his assistant.
Not one for dances or parties, ­Teresa worked hard and saved her money which enabled her to purchase three properties around Tullamore which she later rented out.
Mary and Teresa eventually saved up to buy and renovate their dream home, Woodfield House, in Clonmore, outside Tullamore. The 100-acre site is a haven from the hustle and bustle of town life.

‘The two girls spent years putting their home together,’ said Patrick. ‘It is absolutely gorgeous inside. It is immaculate and they love their home. Mary does a lot of the work outside on the land, like cutting the grass, while Teresa took care of the trees.’
They worked on the building plans for years and every effort was made to keep the original look of the farmhouse. Every year, Teresa would spend a full month pruning and nurturing thousands of evergreens, oak, ash and birch on her land. Family members said she treated the trees like her children.
‘Over the past 20 years, she has loved and cherished the trees on her land. She would spend a month or more weeding, pruning and removing the fur from their roots.
‘From morning to night, she walks up and down those fields taking care of the trees. They are cared for like children, she loves them and it breaks her heart to think that any of them will be cut down.’
Her other love is the family pet: Teresa usually spends a lot of her time walking their six-year-old West Highland Terrier Misty around her land.
‘They had a dog called Snowy for six years; she was also a West Highland Terrier,’ said Patrick. ‘They were absolutely devastated after Snowy died and immediately went out and got Misty.
‘They couldn’t cope with the heart ache so they replaced her straight away. That’s the way they are, gentle and caring.’
The love Teresa has for her dog was evident last Tuesday morning at 11:30am when three gardaí came to her home to take her to prison.
‘Tell Mary to look after Misty,’ she told her nieces before being put into the back of a garda car and driven away. ‘Tell Mary I’ll be okay.’
And she seems to be thriving – but as she still refuses to change her beliefs, she will stay in Mountjoy. By bitter irony, on Wednesday, the day after Teresa went to jail, the ESB arrived at her property to begin work. Eventually, she may only be let out because the trees will have all been felled.
But however long her jail spell, her family will support her as she has always supported them.
‘God knows where this will all end, but she is standing up for her beliefs,’ said Patrick. ‘How could a woman like Teresa cause anarchy? It’s so hard to believe it’s come to this.
‘But we are very proud of the fact that she has good morals. She never holds a grudge and is the most forgiving person in the world, so we know she will be okay and we will support her all the way. We are very proud of her.’

Nottingham police sexually assault, punch and brutalise an 7 month Pregnant woman

Every day we hear more and more stories of horrific brutality by British  police against  the most vulnerable in Society, children, old ladies and now heavily pregnant women.
Nottingham. Police officers have received a slap on the hand for  sexually assaulting, punching and brutalising an 7 months  pregnant 42 year old mother of 7. 
The Crown Prosecution Service  and   senior Police in Nottingham  have not thought  to prosecute the Police Officers  for  brutality  against this vulnerable woman and her unborn child. 
These evil men  who masquerade as officers of the law should receive long sentences for their crimes.  What does it say about a Government and the Criminal Justice System when men who abuse and brutalise a heavily pregnant woman go unpunished  simply because they belong to a discredited police force.  This is not a matter to be dealt with by internal Police disciplinary action, the CPS must  prosecute  these evil men.
 Nottingham and Derby Police  come up time and time again in complaints but the chief constables of these corrupt  forces remain in place.

Nottingham Police are the same force  who prosecuted  the Ratclife Power Station Activists using Mark Stone /Kennedy uncover cop to set them up  and hired Prosecution Barrister Felicity Gerry to lie to the Court. 

This abuse of power and the theft of and use by the Police of dead babies passports is being investigated by Mick  Creedon Derby Chief Constable. The same  Chief Constable who set-up child abuse whistle-blower Andrea Davison,  using the same prosecution barrister Felicity Gerry.  Has anyone noticed that Derby and Nottingham are next door?

Three police officers charged over pregnant suspect's ordeal in prison cell

Misconduct charges follow IPCC investigation of woman's complaint that she was stripped and handcuffed for 11 hours

A police inspector and two sergeants are facing gross misconduct charges following a complaint from a pregnant woman that she was handcuffed for 11 hours in a police cell, stripped naked from the waist up and assaulted.
Lynette Wallace, 42, went into labour 10 weeks early following the incident and was rushed into hospital for an emergency caesarean. She says her child is now suffering from developmental delays.
The misconduct charges against three officers in Nottinghamshire follow an Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) report into the case. Wallace believes that the early onset of labour was a result of her treatment in custody, though this issue did not form part of the investigation.
The report did not recommend referring the investigation to the Crown Prosecution Service for possible criminal charges, but the IPCC has told the Guardian it is now reconsidering this decision.
Wallace, a mother of seven from Nottingham, was arrested at her home on 7 July 2011, accused of arson with intent to endanger life and intimidating a witness. The charges were later dropped.
At the city's Bridewell police station she was asked if she self-harmed; she said she had in the past but not for a long time. An officer told her she had to remove her trousers or she would cut them off with a knife. Wallace agreed to this and was taken to a cell.
It is understood the investigators found that an officer then decided she might have been in imminent danger of strangling herself, so a decision was made to remove all her upper clothing.
After this three officers rushed into her cell, forced her face down on to the bed, ripped off her T-shirt, cut her bra off with a knife, handcuffed her hands behind her back and left her.
It was only when a custody nurse found her naked from the waist up that a T-shirt was put over her.
Wallace was left handcuffed for 11 hours and then interviewed. When police wanted to handcuff her again she refused as she says she was in considerable pain. It is understood she was then punched repeatedly in the arm to force her to comply.
"The whole thing was a nightmare," said Wallace. "I wasn't expecting a police officer to come at me with a knife … to have a bunch of male police rush into my cell, restrain me and rip my clothes off was very traumatic. My arm went black from shoulder to elbow from where they punched me." She said she was particularly anxious about having been forced to abandon her children. The youngest was left with a neighbour and she kept asking who would pick up the older children from school.
"The whole thing was extremely stressful.I felt that something was wrong with the baby and began having Braxton Hicks contractions," Wallace said. "I asked a doctor to examine me but instead was given paracetamol."
Wallace had been having a biopsy for suspected breast cancer at the time she was accused of intimidating a witness. Cancer was confirmed, but her treatment was delayed because of her time in custody.
She said: "After two days I was transferred from the police cell to HMP Peterborough and from there was rushed into hospital for an emergency caesarean. The worst part of the whole incident was only being allowed to see the baby who was very unwell for an hour three times a week. At one point she was put on a ventilator. I thought she might die but I couldn't stay with her because I was taken back to prison. She is almost two now but has got developmental delays which I believe could be caused by what happened to me in the police cell. "
An inspector and the two sergeants are facing a gross misconduct hearing next month relating to the protracted handcuffing while in detention and in one sergeant's case of failing to provide adequate information to allow effective childcare.
Carolynn Gallwey of Bhatt Murphy solicitors, who is Wallace's lawyer, said: "What is most shocking about this case is that it was a number of officers, across shifts and including supervising officers, who either actively took part in or didn't care enough to stop the humiliation, assault and abuse of a heavily pregnant woman."
An IPCC spokesman said: "At the conclusion of the investigation, the IPCC recommended a number of officers face disciplinary proceedings and that three police officers have a case to answer for gross misconduct. "The IPCC is reconsidering an earlier decision not to refer its final investigation report to the CPS and will be discussing this with relevant parties."
A Nottinghamshire police spokesperson said: "In March 2013 the force received the report and findings of the IPCC and is currently acting upon its recommendations, which include that a number of officers should face charges of gross misconduct and misconduct."

Jersey child abuse Politicians press release

Two Jersey politicians have released a Press Statement (below) asking for the UK to fulfil its constitutional obligation and restore the Rule of Law and good governance in the Crown Dependency of Jersey.

Below the Press Release is an in-depth, and exclusive, interview with the two politicians, Deputies Shona and Trevor Pitman, who have experienced, first hand, the cost, both financial and emotional, of attempting to obtain justice in Jersey.

Jersey Corruption: UK Government fails constitutional obligations
on ‘good governance’
Two Members of Jersey’s Parliament have today called for the UK government – which has overall responsibility to ensure ‘good governance’ in the Channel Islands - to urgently investigate what they describe as the ‘spiralling evidence of the wide-spread breakdown of law within the island’s justice system.’
Child Abuse Scandal
The Deputies say that ‘justice in the island’ (which came under the global spotlight with the unfolding of the ‘institutional’ child abuse scandal in 2008) ‘is being betrayed by a mixture of top level incompetence, corruption and intimidation. Much of this being a direct reaction from those in the island’s Establishment desperate to bury any dissenting opposition to getting to the truth about decades of child abuse cover-ups.’
‘Far from ensuring justice for the people of Jersey our Law Office has become the tool of choice for the clique at the apex of power to try to silence and, if necessary, drive from office or ruin those who dare challenge the established order; or persist in fighting the cause of the ever-growing number of people coming forward to complain of corruption; whether relating to child abuse or abuse of the legal process.’
This has already seen the former Chief of Police (the initiating officer of the child abuse investigations), Mr. Graham Power QPM forced from office by an illegal suspension that failed to result in any disciplinary charges. It has also seen a former Health Minister, at the centre of revelations about the abuse, ousted; and currently being silenced by a blatant misuse of the Data Protection Law within ‘top secret’ Royal Court hearings – all being paid for out of the tax coffers. Files and records relating to children abused within the Jersey care system have conveniently ‘gone missing’ from within both the Police system and government departments. Evidenced cases against abusers have inexplicably not been pursued by the island’s Law Office.
Banning of US Journalist
This manipulation of justice has even seen the contrived banning of a respected US journalist, Leah McGrath Goodman, from the island once it became apparent she was researching child abuse cover-ups and the island links to Jimmy Savile. A ban only lifted following the intervention of UK MP John Hemming and an international petition campaign initiated by Deputy Trevor Pitman himself. Trevor Pitman states that along with two other political ‘backbench’ colleagues the number of complaints alleging corruption received from members of the public has reached deeply disturbing proportions in recent months.
Legal System - Corruption
These complaints have included alleged tampering with court transcripts; destruction of and refusal to look at evidence; inconsistency in sentencing; and even perjury and collusion between lawyers. The recently leaked "BARTON REPORT" of a disciplinary hearing involving police at the centre of the illegal bugging allegations in the ‘Drug Baron’ Curtis Warren case even revealed claims of falsified and unsigned statements being presented instead of original documents.
Yet the Deputies say the cold, hard evidence of the justice system being in desperate need of external investigation; and the depth of the obstacles facing victims of the cover-ups was only brought home to them after they pursued the island’s only, and hugely influential, pro-establishment newspaper, the Jersey Evening Post to court for defamation along with one of its millionaire clients. The newspaper and its estate agent client Broadlands had mocked the couple after Trevor Pitman’s election, falsely claiming they had increased their salary four-fold by entering politics when in reality they had taken a drop in income of thousands.
Jurat Supports Paedophile in Previous Job as Vice-Principle
‘It was shocking enough given the evidence that we then found ourselves losing the case,’ say the Deputies; ‘we subsequently then discovered that the Senior Jurat (lay judge) John Le Breton had been allowed by the Bailiff’s Office to sit in judgement of the case even though he was a personal friend of the newspaper’s longest-serving Director; the two regularly socialising together and even going to dinner at each other’s home. All of this being evidenced’.
An even bigger shock for the Deputies was the subsequent leaking of a government suppressed report (the 1999 Sharp Report) into another horrific child abuse scandal at the island’s Victoria College (an exclusive ‘fee-paying’ secondary school).  The report revealed that John Le Breton, as Vice Principle had refused to look at evidence against a friend and colleague, the predatory paedophile, Andrew Jervis-Dykes. 
He instead wrote in support of him claiming amongst other things that: Jervis-Dykes had served the College in an ‘outstandingly competent and conscientious way’; that unless police decided to prosecute, the abuse would be seen as ‘an unsubstantiated allegation’. Le Breton even appealed for the paedophile to be allowed to stay on at the school and if he had to resign be allowed to do so with ‘some dignity’. Incredibly Le Breton was put forward for the Jurat role by a politician who was both on the College’s Board of Governors at the time and a former president of the government’s Education Committee!’
The Deputies add, ‘when you bring this to the attention of the Chief Minister, Bailiff (Head of Judiciary and Legislature) and Deputy Bailiff, where both Crown Officers just happen to also be friends of the Jurat in question - you are told: ‘if you don’t like it – appeal’.  The Crown Officers know full well, that the above information not only came to light after our case and has implications far beyond this alone; but that it would necessitate at least another £30,000: monies that most ordinary people do not have.
Jurat Le Breton was allowed to sit by two successive Bailiff’s for a period of 14 years – including sitting on some child abuse cases until retiring just after the Pitman’s’ case. ‘This demonstrates just how unfit for purpose Jersey’s system of election and monitoring of Jurats is’, says Deputy Shona Pitman, adding ‘how in the 21st Century can Jurats be elected in secret by only politicians and lawyers – many of whom will regularly be friends of those proposed?’
UK Justice Minister fails obligations of good governance
Yet even with the backing of around a dozen equally appalled fellow politicians and prominent justice campaigners, the Deputies say that the injustice they have been dealt is as yet failing to be adequately dealt with as it should by the UK justice Ministry. ‘The evidence in our case is overwhelming,’ say the Deputies, ‘just as it is in many other cases. Yet even when presented with all of the details (as outlined above) and letters of support from other concerned public figures, the excuse from Lord McNally has been that as “Jersey has its own justice system we can’t really interfere’’ (see enclosed correspondence).
‘Most absurd of all perhaps’, add the Deputies, ‘is that ‘the Justice Minister instead offers to ‘forward our concerns’ to the Bailiff – the very individual who has allowed all of this to happen! What this shows is the deeply troubling attitude to justice from those holding power within the justice system here and the UK Minister responsible for ‘good governance’ in a small and apparently ‘insignificant’ jurisdiction’.
‘At the bottom line’, conclude the Deputies, ‘if these failings are allowed to continue, if successive Bailiffs and other Crown Officers can allow an individual who refused to look at evidence against a predatory paedophile yet supported him – to sit as a Jurat for 14 years; including on subsequent cases of abuse what hope, we ask, have the victims of Jimmy Savile and the Haut de la Garenne child abuse scandal of getting justice here? What hope has any ordinary citizen who rocks the Establishment boat? The answer must be a resounding none. It is time the UK government stepped up to the plate and fulfilled its obligations. Should they not do so then it can only be concluded that Westminster must be complicit in all of this.’ Full story:

This Press Statement has been issued to the island's State Media and Bloggers (Jersey's only independent media) It remains to be seen what, if any coverage or investigation, it receives other than that  from the independent Bloggers.

Police the Biggest Criminal Gang in Britain

THE BIGGEST GANG in Britain – Shining a light on the culture of police corruption

This book has 3 raving reviews so far. For it describes that and how the Hillsborough, Savile and ‘Plebgate’ investigations are NOT exceptions, but the symptom of

Book Description

1 May 2013
A hard hitting, brutally honest account of police work during the late 1960's and 1970's. Whilst explicit, it is often humorous, refreshing and equally unbelievable. In this first book of a trilogy the author takes the reader through his early police service and in doing so reveals many working practices which in reality have become a culture of dishonesty, lies and often stupidity which has been accepted by the Government of the day, the judiciary and the public at large for many years. That is until the present day when it has all gone so wrong. Very, very wrong with the revelations of the Hillsborough Investigation, the Jimmy Savile Investigation, so many more and even 'Plebgate' when The Biggest Gang believed they were so powerful that evidence against Andrew Mitchell, a member of Her Majesty's Government left so many questions, yet to be answered. This book explains that such examples are not typical of a minority rogue element as being claimed but are a dishonest culture, born so long ago but allowed to fester and grow with the many examples and revelations which have continued until today with Hillsborough as only one shocking example.

David Hencke accuses Ben Fellows of making false allegations against the poor victim Ken Clarke MP

David Hencke published a story on Exaro  supporting Ken Clarke, the man who believes in Secret Courts, the  man part responsible for the cover-up of the North Wales Child Abuse Scandal.

David Hencke writes  that

 David Hencke accuses Ben Fellows of making false allegations against the poor victim Ken Clarke MP

An unfounded and false allegation

"This weekend Exaro News  has published a story by me where a prominent figure has been falsely accused of indecently assaulting a teenage boy. Exceptionally in this case I had personal knowledge of the events surrounding the incident and knew enough about them to give a statement to the  Met Police Paedophile Unit. As a result of my statement and statements from others  the police cleared the person.
The full story is behind the pay wall at Exaro News ( and Like the false accusation against Lord McAlpine, this is  another case of mistaken identity."

Of course you have to pay to read it.

, the Beast of Jersey, was the son of wealthy Jersey landowners.

During the period 1958 - 1971, Paisnel abducted and abused a number of children.

Paisnel was a fan of the 15th-century Breton, Gilles de Rais, who murdered around 200 children.

"Witnesses claim that members of the ring used their connections with police and social services to conceal their activities. All of the accused have denied the allegations.
"Those named to the tribunal include:
"A man who bears the same surname as a prominent Conservative supporter. Two witnesses have told the tribunal of a rich and powerful man who belonged to the alleged ring.

"The son of an influential peer who admitted to police that he had been having sex with an under-age boy from one of the homes. Despite his admission, he was never prosecuted.

"A powerful public official who has previously been cleared of abuse. Six witnesses have given separate accounts to the tribunal of his alleged rape of young boys. Another has reported him attending parties in Wrexham which were supplied with boys from a children's home.

"Two social workers and two police officers, one of whom was accused of abuse on four separate occasions and exonerated each time, another of whom has since been jailed in another part of the country for gross indecency with a child.

"More than a dozen other local men, including an executive with a local authority, a senior probation officer and a director of a major company."

6. Margaret Hodge (née Margaret Oppenheimer) was linked to the alleged cover up of a pedophile scandal. In 2003, Hodge was appointmented as Minister for Children by Tony Blair.

October 6 1992: The Evening Standard began a series of reports alleging that dozens of children at two Islington council homes were abused.
Hodge accused the Standard of "gutter journalism" and rejected its dossier on paedophile activity in the homes.

October 23 1992Margaret Hodge stepped down as council leader.

May 23 1995: An independent inquiry led by the director of Oxford social services found that the council failed to properly investigate the sexual abuse allegations.,1074,1087250,00.html
Allegations of child abuse at the Islington children's home were borne out by official inquiries.
7. In a number of Leicester children's homes, between 1973 and 1986, various adults were involved in sexual abuse of children. (Uncovering The Past Abuse of Children in Care ).
These were homes run by Frank Beck. At his trial in 1991, Beck was found guilty of 17 counts of physical and sexual abuse.
There was a Police Complaints Authority investigation into why so many of the complaints made to police by children had been ignored.
8. Quarriers Homes, Nazareth House and St Ninians in Scotland - An independent report for the Scottish government found that there has been massive child abuse in Scottish care homes. (Scotland’s shame )
The Herald, 23 November 2007, provides the details (‘These are the voices that need to be heard’) :

"When she was nine - or thereabouts - she (Elizabeth McWilliams) was raped by the man Quarriers called her house father. 'He took his chance,' she said matter-of-factly.

"Some children complained of abuse. That had consequences. 'Boys,' she said. 'Well, they were hung up on door hangers and their penises tied to doorhandles.'"

Quarriers Homes is a Christian community.

Helen Holland was sent to Nazareth House in Kilmarnock, a children's home run by nuns.

At Nazareth House Helen was raped by a priest.

"When she was eight, a nun pulled a hood over her head to help a priest rape her. The sexual abuse went on for three years until, aged 11, she fell pregnant. The same nun kicked her in the stomach until she miscarried."

She was 'beaten to a pulp' by a nun.

There was abuse at many other homes (The landmark cases: abuse in children's homes )

At St Ninians: "In 2003 Michael Murphy, 69, formerly known as Brother Benedict, a monk with the de la Salle order, was jailed for two years on ten charges of physical abuse during the 1960s, including torturing pupils with an electric shock device, force-feeding them vomit and whipping them with knotted boot laces."
9. Moira Anderson
11-year-old Moira Anderson was last seen boarding a bus in Coatbridge, near Glasgow, Scotland, in 1957.

She was on her way to the shops to buy a box of chocolates for her mum’s birthday.

According to The Sunday Times (Pressure on police to release paedophile dossier), 23 April 2006, Strathclyde Police have a dossier listing members of a child-abuse ring.

This dossier may identify the people who kidnapped Moira.

The dossier is said to implicate senior public figures, including senior police officers and members of the Crown Office and former Scottish Office.

These public figures are said to have abused children in Strathclyde (the Glasgow area) during the 1950s and 1960s.

The dossier is said to list vehicles and safe houses used in Glasgow, Monklands and Paisley where children were hidden before being taken to sex parties.

Strathclyde police have decided not to release the dossier.
The dossier was written by James Gallogley, a convicted child-abuser who died in Peterhead prison in 1999.

10. 02/24/2008 - by anonfrombackthen (Police in abuse probe find child remains on Jersey [UK])
"After having spent six months in solitary confinement, in a cell with unbrakeable glass, feeling extremely vulnerable without clothes, knowing that anyone could look through the magnified peephole on the door at any time, (and they did too! cos I could hear them and saw their shadows come and go), I learnt to comply.
"There was no recreation during that time in the cell. I was locked up 24 hours a day for the whole of the six months. Yet I wasnt a criminal. I just didnt get on with my parents, so I took them to court for mental and physical cruelty.
"Of course, they won cos they could afford a solicitor. I couldnt and I would proven uncontrollable and given the choice of going to live with one of my sisters who were married or to go in the home. I didnt think it fair on my sisters cos they all had young families, so I chose the home.
"The six months in solitary was my introduction to Haut de la Garenne. The only contact I had with the outside world in that time was with a member of staff who insisted in supervising my showers and bathroom visits."

The child sex trade a lucrative criminal industry protected by State agencies

Child abuse rings - Haringey, Islington, Jersey and beyond 

Eileen Fairweather, in the Mail on Sunday, has linked Haringey to Islington and Jersey ('I have known about Jersey paedophiles for 15 years,' says award-winning journalist.)

The Haringey boy, from Labour-run Haringey in London, was tortured to death by a satanist.

On 16 November 2008, the Mail on Sunday tells us How a close male relative of Baby P is linked to a big paedophile ring.

This child-abuse ring operated in Labour-run Islington, the part of London where Tony Blair once lived.

Reportedly, the ring supplied boys to top people.

(This child abuse ring, reportedly, has links to the child abuse in Jersey, which in turn, reportedly, has links to the Dutroux affair and the security services)

The close male relative of Baby P reportedly recruited boys from children's homes in Islington for the child-abuse ring, according to a secret report seen by The Mail on Sunday.

In the early 1990s, the relative, as a boy, was put in a children's home, in Labour-run Islington, in London.

All 12 of the children's homes in Islington were being used by the child-abuse ring, which reportedly had links to top people.

This ring included three pimps called Alan, John and George.

Reportedly, the relative, then aged 13, was persuaded, by money, drugs and threats, to supply the pimps with young boys.

The relative tried to blow the whistle.

Reportedly, the relative told social workers the names of boys who were being ferried from the children's homes to various parts of London (Manor Park, Tottenham, Soho and Westminster) to ‘be buggered by old men’.

Reportedly, none of the men were put under surveillance or questioned.

Whistleblowing Social worker Neville Mighty, who had received death threats, named the relative in a report.

Neville Mighty contacted Islington’s then director of children’s services, Lyn Cusack, who is married to a senior policeman.

In June 1992, Mighty was sacked.

Liz Davies, the senior Islington social worker who encouraged Mighty to go public, said:

'We got too close. There were too many powerful people involved.

'Child sex, pornography and sadism are extremely lucrative industries.'
In 1994, an independent report criticised the failure of police and social workers to help the relative.

Bryn Estyn - one of many children's homes linked to child-abuse

On 2 March 2008, Eileen Fairweather at the The Mail on Sunday had an excellent news story entitled 'I have known about Jersey paedophiles for 15 years,' says award-winning journalist.

Eileen Fairweather described the links between child abuse in Islington in London and child abuse on the islands of Jersey and Guernsey. She also suggests possible cover-ups by top police and politicians.

According to the Mail on Sunday article:

1. About 15 years ago, Detective Constable Peter Cook uncovered a child sex ring, with victims in both Britain and Jersey.

Cook's police bosses barred Cook from alerting police abuse specialists in London. Inquiries by junior detectives were closed down by senior police officers.

The child abuse ring members included an aristocrat, clerics and a social services chief. Their friends included senior police officers.

Cook managed to meet people at the National Criminal-Intelligence Squad. Little happened.

2. In February 2008, 'a child's remains' were found at a former children's home on Jersey.
More than 200 children who lived at Haut de la Garenne have described sexual and physical torture dating back to the Sixties.

3. There are the links between the child abuse at care homes in Islington, North London, and the child abuse on Jersey.

14-year-old Jason Swift, killed in 1985 by a paedophile gang, is believed to have lived in Islington council's Conewood Street home.

Two sources claimed this.

Every one of Islington's 12 care homes included staff who were paedophiles, child pornographers or pimps.

Police secretly confirmed that several Islington workers were 'major operators in the supply of children for abuse and pornography'.

Islington children were taken to Jersey 'on unofficial visits'.

Government Minister Margaret Hodge, then council leader in Islington, denounced "gutter journalists" who supposedly bribed children to lie about abuse.

(The Right Honourable Margaret Eve, Lady Hodge, MBE (née Margaret Oppenheimer; born September 1944, Cairo) is a British politician and Labour Party Member of Parliament for Barking. She was the first Minister for Children appointed in a newly created post within the Department for Education and Skills in 2001 . She is presently a Minister of State in the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.)

5. Jersey social worker Simon Bellwood was sacked in 2007 after speaking out.

Jersey health minister Stuart Syvret was sacked after publicising a suppressed report into abuse allegations.

6. In June 1991, police in Cambridgeshire raided the home of Neil Hocquart who abused children in Britain and Guernsey.
Hocquart, along with a social worker from Jersey, supplied child pornography to a huge sex ring.
Hocquart, nee Foster, was abused while in care in Norfolk and was eventually 'befriended' by Captain H. Hocquart of Vale, in Guernsey.

Cambridgeshire police and a Scotland Yard squad raided Neil Hocquart's Swaffham Manor home in June 1991.

At nearby Ely they found his friend, Walter Clack, who was also reportedly involved with child pornography.

Police did not get a chance to properly interview these men. Hocquart died suddenly and Clack 'escaped with a £5,000 fine'.

Scotland Yard detectives related that they found at least "two or three" wills of older men who died of apparent heart attacks shortly after leaving everything to Neil Hocquart.

These deaths were never investigated.

7. Nicholas John Rabet, born on Jersey, was a friend of Hocquart's. Rabet became a childcare worker on Jersey.

Later, Rabet

Rabet became a key supplier of children from Islington's care homes to paedophile rings.

Rabet and a colleague took children on trips to Jersey.

'Allegations mounted but nothing was done'.

Rabet befriended the widow of an American oil millionaire. This lady died after writing her will in Rabet's favour. Rabet inherited a property in Sussex, where he opened a children's activity centre. Children in Islington's care were regularly invited to stay there.

Hocquart and Walter Clack became "volunteers" at this activity centre.

Hocquart befriended one young boy called Shane (not his real name) who stayed at an islington care home.

Sussex police raided Rabet's children's centre and then contacted Shane, at his Islington children's home. Shane confirmed months of 'abuse'. Attempts to investigate further 'were thwarted by Islington Council'.

Islington 'falsely told Sussex officers it had no file material on Rabet or his alleged victim'.

The independent White inquiry into the abuse in Islington children's homes found that "at assistant director level . . . many confidential files were destroyed by mistake, although there is no evidence of conspiracy."

During the Rabet investigation, Islington refused to interview any other children in care or help Sussex police identify other children in Rabet's photos.

Police decided not to prosecute.

Shane told journalist Eileen Fairweather: "This goes right to the top. You have no idea how big this is."

Fairweather writes: "Third World police... succeeded where Britain's finest in Cambridgeshire, Sussex, London and Jersey had failed."

Rabet was arrested in Thailand in 2006 and charged with abusing 30 boys, some as young as six. Thai police believed he had abused at least 300.

Rabat was never tried. He died suddenly on 12 May 2006.

8. Two other Jersey-born social workers also worked in Islington.

One arranged sailing trips to Guernsey; the other sent children to Rabet's centre. Both were accused of abuse.

9. When Detective Constable Cook travelled to Guernsey, he met two brothers whom Hocquart 'delivered to a high-ranking, respected local man to rape'.
Reportedly no action was taken by senior police.

Jason Swift

In 1985, 14-year-old Jason Swift was killed by a child-abuse gang.

Jason is believed to have lived in Islington council's Conewood Street children's home. (Jersey child abuse link to Islington, London)

Sidney Cooke, Leslie Bailey, Robert Oliver, and Lennie Smith, were imprisoned in 1989 for the manslaughter of Jason Swift.

Cooke and his gang had sexually tortured and prostituted a number of boys.

The gang is believed to have killed at least nine children.[2]

Cooke was sentenced to 19 years in prison.

In 1998, Cooke was let out of prison eight years early.

There have been allegations that very powerful people have been involved in a child-abuse ring connected to Islington children's homes. ( Jersey child abuse link to Islington, London)

In 1982 Margaret Hodge (nee Oppenheimer) became Islington council leader.
She became a close friend of Tony Blair, who lived in Islington, a few doors away from Hodge.

In February 1990 Liz Davies and David Cofie, senior social workers, discovered evidence of sex abuse of children and reported it to a residents' meeting attended by Mrs Hodge.

In May 1990 Mr Cofie and Ms Davies were told by Lyn Cusack, assistant director of social services, to stop interviewing children about the abuse claims.

On 1 May 1997 Tony Blair moved from Islington to Downing Street.

In June 2003 Mrs Hodge was made minister for Children.
(Another minister under fire: call for Hodge to quit over child ...)
The Independent, 9 March 2008, has an article on missing children (Our children are missing: Most vulnerable youngsters are targeted) which tells us the following:

Sarah Benford, 14, disappeared from Welford House children's home in Northampton in April 2000.

She is still missing.

The UK's Police National Missing Persons Bureau has 1,418 "open cases" of missing children.

According to Police figures more than 100 children who should be in care have been missing for at least four years.

Many children who go missing are not reported to the police.

Member of parliament Helen Southworth says: "All figures on children missing from anywhere are estimates because, astonishingly, there is no requirement for data to be recorded or collected nationally."

Almost 1,000 children went missing from UK residential and foster care in 2007.

The number that went missing from care increased from 570 in 1997 to 950 in 2007.

The boy, known as Baby P, suffered bruising from beatings. (scars of on Baby P's face were hidden with smeared chocolate)
The boy died in a blood-spattered cot in Haringey, London, in 2007.
A post mortem showed the boy had a broken back and eight broken ribs
He had spent much of his life being treated as a punchbag.
Gordon Brown's Labour Government ignored a whistleblower's plea for an investigation into Haringey Council's social services department six months before the boy died.
The whistleblower wrote: "Child abusers are not being tackled."
Haringey Council is run by Labour, Gordon Brown's party.
On the boy's final day alive, police told his mother that they would take no further action over suspicions she had assaulted him.
The boy's injuries
The killer of the boy had a fascination for Nazi memorabilia.
When he and the lodger clicked their fingers the boy would touch his forehead on the floor in fear of another beating.

 In short, the chief whip would cover up any scandal, even if it involved “small boys”, child sexual abuse, child rape, whatever you want to call it. They wouldn’t report the crime to the police, although they may use their contacts with the police to make sure to make sure the matter went no further. This means that a paedophile would be the ideal candidate for promotion within the party, easily blackmailed and bought, loyalty and discretion guaranteed.

An example of how the dirt book may have been used is the case of Sir Peter Morrison, who was Conservative MP for Chester from 1974-1992, as well as being Margaret Thatcher’s Parliamentary Private Secretary. Morrison has been linked to a notorious paedophile ring that sexually abused children in North Wales care homes. Chris House, who worked as reporter for the Daily Mirror, twice received tip-offs about Morrison being caught abusing underage boys which resulted in just a police caution, but libel threats stopped the newspaper from running the story. Peter Connew, the former editor of the Sunday Mirror, said “such was the hush-up that nobody could get hold of a log of the arrest”.

Edwina Currie, who was a Conservative MP at the time, said “Peter Morrison has become the PM’s PPS. Now he’s what they call ‘a noted pederast’,’ with a liking for young boys; he admitted as much to Norman Tebbitt when he became deputy chairman of the party, but added, ‘However, I’m very discreet’ – and he must be!”

It seems possible that Morrison was given the job of PPS precisely because he was a paedophile; the party had ‘dirt’ on him so they could rely on his loyalty. Morrison was an alcoholic, famously incompetent, and often found asleep at his desk, so I can’t think of any other reasons for his promotion to PPS. Not a thought was given to the poor children who he abused, and nobody in his party went to the police to stop him committing these crimes. Edwina Currie was quite happy to save this ‘gossip’ about child rape to boost her book sales.

U.S. charges Snowden with espionage

Federal prosecutors have filed a sealed criminal complaint against Edward Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor who leaked a trove of documents about top-secret surveillance programs, and the United States has asked Hong Kong to detain him on a provisional arrest warrant, according to U.S. officials.

Snowden was charged with espionage, theft and conversion of government property, the officials said.

The complaint was filed in the Eastern District of Virginia, a jurisdiction where Snowden’s former employer, Booz Allen Hamilton, is headquartered, and a district with a long track record in prosecuting cases with national security implications.

A Justice Department spokeswoman declined to comment.http://www.washingtonpost

Snowden flew to Hong Kong last month after leaving his job at an NSA facility in Hawaii with a collection of highly classified documents that he acquired while working at the agency as a systems analyst.

The documents, some of which have been published in The Washington Post and Britain’s Guardian newspaper, detailed some of the most secret surveillance operations undertaken by the United States and the United Kingdom, as well as classified legal memos and court orders underpinning the programs in the United States.

The 29-year-old intelligence analyst revealed himself June 9 as the leaker in an interview with the Guardian and said he went to Hong Kong because it provided him the “cultural and legal framework to allow me to work without being immediately detained.”

Snowden subsequently disappeared from public view; it is thought that he is still in the Chinese territory. Hong Kong has its own legislative and legal systems but ultimately answers to Beijing, under the so-called “one country, two systems” arrangement.

The leaks have sparked national and international debates about the secret powers of the NSA to infringe on the privacy of both Americans and foreigners. Officials from President Obama down have said they welcomed the opportunity to explain the importance of the programs, and the safeguards they say are built into them. Skeptics, including some in Congress, have said the NSA has assumed power to soak up data about Americans that were never intended under the law.

There was never any doubt that the Justice Department would seek to prosecute Snowden for one of the most significant national security leaks in the country’s history. The Obama administration has shown a particular propensity to go after leakers, and has launched more investigations that any previous administration.

Justice Department officials had already said that a criminal investigation of Snowden was underway and was being run out of the FBI’s Washington field office in conjunction with lawyers from the department’s National Security Division.

By filing a criminal complaint, prosecutors have a legal basis to make the request of the authorities in Hong Kong. Prosecutors now have 60 days to file an indictment, probably also under seal, and can then move to have Snowden extradited from Hong Kong for trial in the United States.

Snowden, however, can fight the U.S. effort to have him extradited in the courts in Hong Kong. Any court battle is likely to reach Hong Kong’s highest court, and could last many months, lawyers in the U.S. and Hong Kong said.

The United States has an extradition treaty with Hong Kong, and U.S. officials said cooperation with the Chinese territory, which enjoys some autonomy from Beijing, has been good in previous cases.

The treaty, however, has an exception for political offenses, and espionage has traditionally been treated as a political offense. Snowden’s defense team in Hong Kong is likely to invoke part of the extradition treaty with the United States, which states that suspects will not be turned over to face criminal trial for offenses of a “political character.”

Snowden could also remain in Hong Kong if the Chinese government decides that it is not in the defense or foreign policy interests of the government in Beijing to have him sent back to the United States for trial.

Snowden could also apply for asylum in Hong Kong, or attempt to reach another jurisdiction and seek asylum there before the authorities in Hong Kong act.

The anti-secrecy group Wikileaks has held some discussions with officials in Iceland about providing asylum to Snowden. A businessman in Iceland has offered to fly Snowden on a chartered jet to his country if he is granted asylum there.

The chief executive of Hong Kong, Leung Chun-ying, said last week that the city’s government would follow existing law if and when the U.S. government requested help.

“When the relevant mechanism is activated, the Hong Kong [Special Administrative Region] Government will handle the case of Mr. Snowden in accordance with the laws and established procedures of Hong Kong,” Leung said in a statement.

Ben Fellows letter to Ken Clarke

Dear The Right Honourable Kenneth Clarke MP
You may not remember me but you groped me in Ian Greer’s office back in 1994, while I was working for the Cook Report.
Unfortunately, I’m reluctant to give you a chance to sexually assault me again for you to ascertain my identity, so you’re just going to have to take my word for it. If you remember you said that you were in Greer’s office so often that “Ian should put a parliamentary bell in his office so you’d know when to go and vote.” How we all laughed! Of course this is I understand a breech of parliamentary rules.
I have made a serious allegation against you concerning the sexual assault on me to  “Operation Fairbridge” which is part of the Metropolitan Police’s Paedophile Unit, as you at the time believed that I was fifteen years old. I actually wasn’t that interested in making a statement as you hadn’t sued me over my story. It was the Police’s idea not mine so perhaps you should take it up with them.
DCI Paul Settle who is in charge of the investigation informed me that if I were to make a half page statement they wouldn’t do anything. However, I was interrogated for eight hours and the statement was fifteen pages long. The Detective who took my statement said that it was detailed and of course she was anxious to get off as she had plans to have drinks with her Sargent. As former Justice Minister you will appreciate that surely nobody is or should consider themselves “Above the law”, so why are the Metropolitan Police claiming that you are?
If someone made serious allegations against me the Police would question me and take a statement at the very least. I’m assuming the Criminal Prosecution Service would then see if the evidence would find its way to a criminal court or not. Of course as a barrister you know more than I do. The Police, in the form of a Detective Ben Lambskin stated officially that even if they were to speak to you, you would be likely to lie.  Not being a lawyer I’d have to say after speaking with a few legal professionals that you probably have a pretty good case against the Metropolitan Police for slandering your right honourable name. Do the Police often say that Ministers are likely to lie?  You can find the video’s with the Police on YouTube as an investigative Journalist I taped them. Isn’t YouTube great! Lol
Of course you or your people, when I first wrote the article used public money to get the Cabinet Office to threaten fellow journalists and bloggers which were running my article. Is that proper? I don’t think so. In any case it didn’t work, did it.
The Paedophile unit told me, that what was happening to me was a “demoralisation exercise”whereby if a victim of abuse makes a statement against someone, suspected of being an abuser or Paedophile and are either not believed or the Police “dismiss” them, then they never complain again. Perhaps as the former Justice Minister you will be able to inform the Police that their strategy at least in my case has failed.
So after my speech at this year’s Bilderberg fringe, introduced by Bill Maloney of Pie and Mash films, I have been keeping a low profile as the Police have been threatening me. Why? I’m a really nice person just doing my civic duty co-operating with the Police in connection with a crime.
So I complained to the IPCC and was informed by a Mr Dave Bird that the Police have reopened my case after Detective Ben Lambskin et al informed that it was closed. Which is really good news but they haven’t contacted me.
So this is what’s going to happen next as on television you were looking a little ill the other day talking about Bilderberg, so I don’t want to worry or surprise you unnecessarily. I know how old people are vulnerable to having heart attacks and strange illness suddenly in regards to child abuse and paedophilia accusations. Just take Lord Lloyd Webber. I told the Police about him sticking his tongue down my throat, when I was a child. I told the Police back in October last year and suddenly he’s being suffering from a strange illness so much so that he was unable to go to Broadway to accept his Tony award for Phantom of the Opera.
Sorry I digress. I am going to be returning to London in the next few weeks doing what I am calling:

“Ben Fellows’ Walk Against Corruption 2013”

Essentially I will be walking from Plymouth to London which is around 300 miles give or take. The aim of the idea is that people can join me on the walk maybe for a mile, or longer if they want and walk for what concerns them about the corruption pervading our world. It could be the criminal banks, the government, child abuse, YOU!…you get the drift. So by the time I reach London we will have a rally of some kind and that’s were you come in. It’ll be like The Million Man March but just with me.
I would like to have a sit down conversation with you on BBC Newsnight or even better on a special BBC Question Time for you to answer publicly why you are preventing the Police from doing their job.
If I were you Mr Clarke, thank God I’m not, but if I were, I’d want to make a statement to the Police and put my side of the story across. Of course the Police have said that you will probably lie which is fine. They also said that they couldn’t make people tell the truth, so I guess you can play in the grey area of the law. They stated that there were protocols in place which prevented them from speaking with you. Please can you make this exception, speak to whoever it is at the Standards Committee or Speaker of the House and do the right thing and allow the Police to question you.
I was pleased to hear that as you stuttered your way so expertly through questions in the House concerning Bilderberg that you have decided to step down from the steering committee. I personally think that’s a shame, as everyone will miss you.
I feel that perhaps in some small way I was slightly responsible for that after appearing just a few hundred yards down the hill from you at the Grove last week. Oh by the way, I went back to the Grove at 3am on the Sunday and I saw men in what can only be described as forensic science suits doing something. A Police officer, an Inspector Knight, told me earlier in the day that the hotel was being cleaned for DNA. Is that what always happens at these events and more importantly are we the tax payer paying for it?
Oh I just remembered this is funny. Remember when you were talking about G4S in Ian Greer’s office back in the day. You said that, why when you were asked why the company was called G4S, after the fiasco with Group 4 Securicor, you said that “It’s called G4S as the 4 was the dollar sign on the keyboard”… Oh so it is!
Also as you are probably aware that Prime Minister David Cameron whilst working for Carlton Television was responsible for getting the Cook Report tapes on behalf of the Major government at the time when Carlton acquired Central Television.  Next time you see Dave in Cabinet, can you ask him what he did with them, as the Police claim that there is a high level political conspiracy regarding what happened to those tapes? It would go a long way in proving my case and outing all the other “Cash for Questions” scandals contained therein.
It should take me around 3 weeks to walk from Plymouth to London; so we can meet at your house or in Westminster. Can you let me know if you’re up to doing the Special Question Time show, as it would be great to get that going sooner rather than later? I know Mark Thompson the ex DG of the BBC but since he’s left, I don’t really know anyone at the top any more. So if you could have a word, Greece the wheels I’d appreciate it.
Looking forward to seeing you very soon.
Of course you are invited to the Rally Against Corruption when I’m back in London, you can be my plus one. It would be great to have some music, maybe even a buffet with Pineapple on sticks and processed horse meat sausages. Perhaps the Cabinet office could help organise some nibbles and squash.
Anyway hope you’re feeling better after last week.
Yours sincerely
Ben Fellows
P.S. The Paedophile Unit have witness statements against high profile movie stars. DCI Paul Settle talked about watching the Joanna Lumley Porno tapes! Perhaps we could change the law so that the Police have to act against abusers and paedophiles rather than sitting on evidence, keeping it secret and using it for their own ends? Just a thought.
