Over the last 60 years, paedophiles have been allowed to infiltrate every rung of the ladder needed to facilitate access to children.
From Residential and Field Social Workers right up throughout the ranks of Local Councils, Police, Teachers, Doctors, Politicians and the people behind the scenes, the ones we all know actually run the show, the Civil Service and Policy Advisors.
The 1950's and '60's saw the emergence of a widespread sickening trend within Residential Social Work.
The systematic abuse of children within the commercial and public Children's Homes, Approved Schools and Boarding Schools.
In the 1970's and '80's, the pioneering advisor on Residential Childcare and Social Work was Peter Righton.
Whilst it was always an unvoiced joke in the “Old Boys Club's” that if the Master's didn't have you, the Head Boy certainly wouldn't want to know you, a “jolly good time” at prep school followed by a stint at Eton before “OxBridge” was considered the norm.
According to Professor Joy Schaverien, a leading psychotherapist,
“Children sent away to boarding school can suffer psychological damage akin to being taken into care.
"Boarding School Syndrome" can leave adults struggling to form intimate relationships and unable to communicate emotions after being traumatised by forced separation from friends and family at a young age.
Despite the damage, therapists fail to recognise the significance of boarding school in their patients' problems because such an education is still regarded as a character-forming privilege.” (2011)
45 years on and nothing has changed other than the name. Childcare and Safeguarding Policies are still being produced by people under suspicion of crimes against children.
The Government accepting these policies were, for the most part, tutored by or schooled alongside paedophiles, leaving them almost immune to the signs of child exploitation.
The information issued by Authorities on CSE is misleading at best and our children are still at risk.
This report is the result of two years independent study into the spread of Paedophile Information Exchange throughout the UK Schools, Children's Homes and Governing Authorities.
The study was conducted by Karen Gray,
Paper available on academia.edu
This report could not have been compiled without the help and intensive information dissemination and collation of bloggers, journalists, campaigners, survivors and witnesses everywhere.
It appears to have started in 1965 at Greystone Heath, when a 21-year-old student teacher named Keith Laverack went to work there and embarked on a campaign of buggery and indecent assault. Over the ensuing four years, he raped at least 16 boys, three of whom he shared with his colleague;
Brian Percival, the clerk and storeman at the home. Once these two men had established sexual rights over the boys at Greystone, other abusers joined the staff;
Alan Langshaw, who raped at least 24 boys;
Dennis Grain who raped at least 18, joined Greystone Heath from Danesford children's home in Congleton, where he had already opened the door to three others, John Clarke, Joseph Smith and Brian Hudson;
Roy Shuttleworth who raped at least ten;
Jack Bennett who indecently assaulted two;
Steve Norris who assaulted an unknown number.
The Greystone abusers then fanned out.
Grain and Shuttleworth were both promoted to other homes in the Warrington area;
Terence Hoskin went on to become headteacher of St Aiden’s Community Home in Widnes, where he liked to thrash naked boys with a cane, which he then pushed into their backsides, while his housemaster, Colin Dick, indecently assaulted those who caught his eye.
Following a complaint, Dick was accused of indecent assault, but was acquitted;
Hoskin moved on to become President of NCH – Action for Children by 1980. Hoskin later wrote a reference for Colin Dick effectively stating he was no risk to children and a suitable candidate for the position of Residential Social Worker at a home in Manchester;
In 1981, both Grain and Hoskin were back working together at homes operated by the Hesley Group Limited, in Doncaster before Grain then moved on to Eton College;
Steve Norris went to North Wales where he met up with Peter Howarth.
Howarth had started out in Kent before moving on to Axwell Park. He was then recruited by Graville Arnold and moved to Bersham Hall in Wrexham. Norris and Howarth both went on to Bryn Estyn and met up with Gary Cooke.
Following a conviction for abusing boys in Bryn Estyn, Gary Cooke was then employed by Bryn Alyn Community, where he first worked at Marton's Camp and then Cotsbrook Hall in Shropshire. He later took position at a Probation Service run Youth Hostel;
Keith Laverack went to childrens’ homes in Cambridgeshire, where he worked with numerous colleagues, four of whom are now also suspected of abusing children. He eventually moved on to run the Guardian Ad Litem panel in Cambridgeshire. This job not only introduced him to the most vulnerable children in the area but also gave him access to files on abused children all over the country;
Alan Langshaw became Principal of St Vincent’s Catholic boys’ home in Formby where he recruited a care worker named Edward Stanton.
Alan Langshaw was jailed for 10 years in 1994 for 30 counts of serious sexual assaults and indecent assaults against boys aged under 16 at childrens homes in Cheshire and Liverpool. However when the first accusations were made around 1986 Edwina Currie, the Minister responsible for the child care system, was asked to intervene. She stood by Langshaw, who went on to spend another eight years working with and abusing children.
This is not the first or last time Edwina Currie has shown such poor judgement in people. When asked about her choice to hand Savile the keys to Broadmoor she insisted that;
' If this meant we could break the strike and help the patients,
then the ends justified the means.'
When asked about Savile's abuse of the mentally ill inmates she replied;
' If I'd have known, I would have said
" Jimmy give me the keys," and it would have stopped.';
Stanton appears to have got the job at St Vincent's through Roy Shuttleworth, who was continuing to abuse the boys at Greystone and who is believed to have known Stanton from their time in Birmingham when they took the same course in residential child care;
That course in Birmingham, in turn, is believed to have been lectured by Peter Righton, a notorious paedophile who attempted to legitimise his obsession in a series of academic studies.
Righton, for his part, belonged to the Paedophile Information Exchange, which wanted the age of consent lowered to four; along with Jack Bennett. He had also worked in the same children's home in Maidstone, Kent as Peter Howarth.
A child care expert and children’s home consultant, Righton published essays justifying paedophilia, which he called no more mysterious than “a penchant for redheads”;
Rod Ryall, the former Director of Calderdale Social Services, convicted in 1988, is also thought to have taken the Childcare Course along with Malcolm Phillips, convicted in 2001 under Operation Screen for abuse spanning decades at Skircoat Lodge, Halifax.
Ryall, who sat on several committee's with Righton, began his career at Newton Aycliffe before moving on to Tennal Assessment Centre in Birmingham.
When he was appointed Director of Social Services he had already been accused of crimes against children twice.
It is thought, when arrested, he was found in the private flat attached to Skircoat Lodge Assessment Centre, operated by Malcolm Phillips;
As head of the Assessment Centre, Malcolm Phillips had the final say in which placements were used if a child was to be sent to another Borough. Under his regime of tyranny, it is believed that “difficult” children were sent, by Social Services, to only five external Borough units;
Newton Aycliffe (secure); Market Weighton (boys only); Bryn Estyn (secure; until its closure in the 1980's); Bryn Alyn Community (only sent girls although it accepted both); Macclesfield Young Persons Unit (part of Parkview Mental Hospital; closed in 1992-4) No known complaints were ever filed about abuse at this facility, run by Dr Peter Wells.
At this point, looking at most of these homes would be subjudice.
At this point, looking at this home would be subjudice.
At this point, looking at this home would be subjudice.
School fees have now reached over £30,000 per year. Compare that to the £200,000+ spent by some Councils housing just one child in a private-run Children's Home, where Education is to GCSE level at best or non existent at worst.
Tonbridge School, Tonbridge, Kent
Chris Langham (Actor) cancelled an appearance, in 2012, at a top public school after parent fury about his child porn conviction.
Charles Napier, P.I.E treasurer, half brother to MP, was known to have worked at Copthorne Preparatory School. Sherborne being his home village, where he shared a house with their Mother. In 2012 he had to resign from the local Theatre group of which he was Director, after it was discovered he would be working within the School.
Present enquiries into paedophile cover-ups are likely to examine how Charles Napier managed to continue teaching even after his first conviction for indecent assault in 1972. He was banned from teaching in the UK, but emigrated and by the late 1970s (already an active member of the Paedophile Information Exchange) was employed at a school in Sweden.
Around the same time that Napier emigrated, his cousin’s husband – fellow paedophile Sir Peter Hayman – had returned from a stint as High Commissioner in Canada to become deputy director of MI6.
Southbank International School, London
The headmaster of an elite London school where the US paedophile William Vahey abused more than 60 boys dismissed a complaint about his worrying conduct on a field trip as “unfair pressure” by “vindictive parents”, an independent report in to his criminality has revealed. Vahey drugged teenage boys with sedatives secreted in Oreo cookies and soft drinks while on school trips to places such as Jordan, Nepal and India as recently 2013.In less than four years he went on 17 school trips and set up his own travel club. He offered to look after the “ill” children he had dosed, moving them to different rooms and abusing them. His career includes:
The Tehran American School in Iran from 1972-73 The American Community School of Beirut in Lebanon, 1973-75 The American School of Madrid in Spain, 1975-76 The Passargad School in Ahwaz, Iran, 1976-78 The American Community School in Athens, Greece, 1978-80 The Saudi Aramco Schools in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, 1980-92 The Jakarta International School in Indonesia, 1992-2002 The Escuela Campo Alegre in Caracas, Venezuela, 2002-09 The Southbank International School in London, 2009-2013
They also, incidently, own St Paul's Girls School, built next to the original grounds of St Paul's in 1904. Over the years, various politicians have passed through the halls of the Girls School,
Students such as;
Jane Bonham Carter - Liberal Democrat peer Harriet Harman - Labour MP, Deputy Leader of the Labour Party and former Cabinet minister, former member of NCCL Susan Kramer – former Liberal Democrat MP Jo Valentine, Baroness Valentine – member of the British House of Lords Mavis Tate – Conservative MP and women's rights campaigner Shirley Williams – former Labour Education Secretary and co-founder of the Social Democratic Party Eirene White, Baroness White – Labour Minister of State then life peer
As Colet Court is boys only, Bute House Preparatory School, another owned by the Worshipful Company of Mercers, is the main feeder to St Paul's Girls.
The Mercers have interests in a number of other schools;
Operation Pallial, established in 2012 to re-investigate crimes against children in over a dozen homes across North Wales, along with the Macur Review, to assess if Sir Ronald Waterhouse “did his job adequately” were both severely restricted with their remit alone.
“No Children's Home, connection or lead that goes beyond the geographical boundary of North Wales is to be investigated.” was Pallial's response to me when I tried to highlight the specific characteristics shared (blonde haired, blue eyed, 12-15 yrs old) by each known girl sent from Calderdale to Bryn Alyn Community.
The same response (almost word for word) came back from the Macur Review.
Marton's Camp and Cotsbrook Hall in Shropshire;
34 Inverness Terrace in Bayswater;
Why a former Director of Bryn Alyn Community still owns Bryn Alyn Hall, despite all property supposedly sold off to cover compensation and costs in 2000;
The fact 5 abusers from North Wales were allowed to go off and work at another home in Shropshire;
and in the case of Norman Wainwright, become a Director on the Board of several Childcare Companies including Keys Childcare, part of Care UK PLC, which recently bought the Southern section of the Hesley Hall Limited (Doncaster) homes;
The similar characteristics of the children sent, to Bryn Alyn, from certain areas;
None of these facts are to be investigated by Operation Pallial or considered by the Macur Review.
The one thing survivors were promised in 2012 was support. That support has not been forthcoming.
There are tales of key witnesses being left to make their own way to Sentencing. A key factor in the journey toward acceptance of events and a certain level of Closure.
People two years after being promised counselling are still waiting for it to start, or are being told to fund it themselves.
The police are very unapproachable, for the most part. Unwilling to push the boundaries of their remit or explore the truth of what they are supposed to investigate.
When asked if she had read the Waterhouse Report, one DC sent out to survivors homes under Operation Pallial said; “Of course not, have you Seen the Size of it?”
Paedophile Information Exchange
P.I.E were helped with funding from the Government through The Albany Trust, established by Antony Grey as part of his campaign for homosexual rights. Grey also sat on the committee's for British Association for Counselling, NCCL (Liberty) and Campaign Against Censorship.
The two organisations first became connected when Ian Campbell Dunn, the Scottish minster who first helped create P.I.E, contacted Grey in relation to establishing a Scottish branch of Homosexual Law Reform Society.
PIE did not present themselves as child abusers but “child lovers”, keen to “liberate” children from sexual “repression”. Their literature hijacked the language of liberation to persuade gay men and women, feminists and radicals that they had common interests in challenging “the patriarchy”.
It wasn’t until Customs officers intercepted child pornography posted to Righton from Holland, in 1992, that police raided his home and found hundreds of letters between Righton and other paedophiles, revealing he had abused, prostituted and shared numerous boys.
His correspondents included an assistant bishop, artists, aristocrats and public school teachers.
His correspondents included an assistant bishop, artists, aristocrats and public school teachers.
It then emerged that Righton’s lover ran a school for emotionally disturbed children, and Righton was vice-chairman of governors. New Barns School in Gloucestershire, which was atteneded by many children from London care homes, was investigated and closed down on child welfare grounds.
P.I.E was estimated to have over 1000 members at its peak.
They ranged from fairground workers and road sweepers right up to politicians and MoD.
Lord Fulford openly backed them.
They forged connections in every walk of life within every Country thought exploitable;
Charles Napier moved here after a conviction in the UK meant he could not work with children here. Nicholas Rabet and Gary Glitter were also drawn to the land known for child prostitution and sex tourism;
Charles Napier again features here, child prostitution and sex tourism;
through child exports in guise of evacuation and Peter Hayman, who went on to head Mi6, and more recently under Operation Spade, the global investigation into Azov Films
In 1912, Kingsley Fairbridge and his wife emigrated to South West Australia and opened the Fairbridge Farm School. 1913-1982 saw 3,580 children pass through their hands under the guise of evacuee's and underprivileged children. It also served as a layover point for returning Dutch children evacuated to Indonesia. Such migration schemes are now also recognised as the history of the Stolen Children;
In the guise of relief work and education;
Needed no guise. The seedy underbelly of the dutch sexual depravity was the prime market in the early years. The former Queen Beatrix was a widely known paedophile enabler whilst her husband, Prince Bernhard was a regular at parties thrown by Marc Dutroux and Michel Nihoul. It also saw the emergence of IPCE, International Paedophile Child Emancipation “to promote 'scholarly discussion' with the aim of changing legislation to decriminalise aspects of child abuse.” Thomas O'Carroll was instrumental in the establishment of this group and is still an active member today. 61-year-old O'Carroll, an out of work journalist who once worked alongside David Icke, and 67-year-old Michael John De Clare Studdert, a retired Anglican minister, were arrested in January 2006 after the Met's Paedophile Unit conducted a series of co-ordinated searches and arrests. Both were known members of P.I.E
Jimmy Savile had ties here, as did Chris Denning. It also provided access to the KGB blackmail squad known as Zandvoort, of which the notorious paedophile Marc Dutroux was a member, Mi5 double agent Geoffrey Prime also had links with this group.
Provided somewhere for the paedophile “middle men” somewhere to hide when Authorities caught up with them in the Netherlands from UK or USA, seeking extradition. It also provided alternate access to the KGB blackmail squad Zandvoort. Marc Dutroux was prominent as was John Stamford, founder of Spartacus who became a P.I.E member.
Spartacus were known to have “an arrangement” with Elm Guest House.
It also saw the emergence of CRIES. One notable member being Jos Verbeek, the Belgian president of UNICEF who's office was next door in the same building.
In February 1986, Dutroux and his girlfriend Michelle Martin were arrested for abducting and raping five young girls. In April 1989, Dutroux was sentenced to thirteen and a half years in prison. Martin received a sentence of five years. Showing good behaviour in prison, Dutroux was released on parole in April 1992, having served only three years, by Justice Minister Melchior Wathelet. Upon his release the parole board received a letter from Dutroux's own mother to the prison director, in which she stressed concern that he was keeping young girls captive in his house – which was essentially ignored.
Following his release from prison, Dutroux convinced a psychiatrist that he was psychiatrically disabled, resulting in a government pension.
He was again arrested in 1996 and convicted in 2004 after several more girls were kidnapped, filmed whilst being raped, beaten and in some instances killed,
A 17-month investigation by a parliamentary commission into the Dutroux affair produced a report in February 1998, which concluded that while Dutroux did not have accomplices in high positions in the police and justice systems, as he continued to claim, he profited from corruption, sloppiness and incompetence.
Was yet another destination of Napier, Vahey and Dr Peter Kedney, the GP/Medical Officer for Bryn Alyn Community was last seen running a strip club in Athens.
The list goes on....
As the members of P.I.E spread out, their contact grew. New networks began linking in. Some of them operated by John Stamford who went on to be involved in not only Spartacus and P.I.E but also Toro Bravo, PAN and CRIES
P.I.E member Roger Lawrence, who fled to Holland in the early 1980s and joined Spartacus, around the same time as ex-P.I.E leader Steven Smith. Lawrence, used several aliases, and was arrested in his car at Dover in 1987 with notorious Swiss paedophile and sadist Beat Meier. The car was searched, and along with a large collection of child abuse films and magazines, the police found a three year old boy hidden under a blanket. The boy was called Dimitri Thevenin, and had been kidnapped from his parents’ house in Paris. Unbelievably, Roger Lawrence wasn’t charged and was allowed to go free.
Currently, over 200 Safeguarding Teams around the Country are advised on Policy by Tri-X Consultancy Limited, a subsidury company of Cambian Group Ltd, managed by the US Private Equity firm GI Partners Limited.
In December 2014, a Director of Tri-X resigned from the Board.
Two weeks later, Philip Andrew Barrnett stood on trial with three other defendants charged with crimes against 8 victims whilst he was employed at Wisteria Lodge.
The five Case Studies they actually roll out as examples for Managers to Study and familiarise themselves with, are studies
Under Advanced Childcare Limited, they operate over 155 children's homes and special schools across the UK, providing just 474 placements for children, having purchased;
Clifford House in 2011, 13 Homes;
They also run SACCS – Sexual Abuse Child Consultancy Service. Their aim is to “assist a child through therapy.”;
Cambian Education, aimed at children and young people with a number of problems including Aspergers Syndrome and Autism;
Cambian Childcare, yet more homes;
Cambian Foster Care is a fostering agency based in Midlands, North West, South West and Yorkshire providing a service for young people;
An Ofsted review of the child care industry in 2013, commissioned by Michael Gove, the Education Secretary, reported that one in three homes run by Advanced Childcare "failed to be classified as 'good' or 'outstanding' by the education watchdog."
Care UK Services Limited are another “key player” in the private Childcare sector.
Owning such companies as;
Keys Education Limited;
Care UK Homecare Limited
Care UK Learning Disabilities Limited
Corvedale Care Limited
Corvedale Independent Units Limited
and being the largest Independent Sector Treatment Centre specialist under an NHS sponsored agreement, they too carry serious weight when it comes to reform.
Commercialised care of our children has to end.
Fostering needs closer vetting.
Schools need to be more closely monitored, Head Masters should not be left in place for the sake of them having “always been there, part of the institution.”
Homes should not be about profit margins, they are supposed to be about Care.
CRB checks should be carried out and any staff that were in position during a period of abuse should be open to scrutiny.
There are literally thousands of victims that have come forward over the past half century, to allege crimes against an estimated 1.1million child abusers in or from the UK. Viewed on a global scale, we face a plague of pandemic proportions.
