Why do we have to wait until another Labour/Liberal Party Paedophile is dead to be exposed?

Why do we have to wait until another Labour/Liberal Party Paedophile is dead to be exposed? | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

Detectives were convinced Sir Cyril Smith was a serial paedophile 42 years ago – only for prosecutors to dismiss the case THREE times.

Our investigation has revealed how police compiled an 80-page dossier of evidence in 1970 in which the former MP was accused of molesting eight boys.

In a covering note, the senior investigating officer wrote that it was ‘impossible to excuse’ the conduct of Smith, who had ‘used his unique position to indulge in a sordid series of indecent episodes with young boys to whom he had a special responsibility’.

The case was rejected by the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), which claimed in a terse one-page response that the allegations were ‘completely without corroboration’ and that the ‘character of some of these young men would be likely to render their evidence suspect’.

It was one of three occasions on which prosecutors sent back police files after ruling Smith, who died in 2010, should NOT be charged for child sex offences.

We can also reveal the evidence of a new victim, who had told how he was subject to sexual abuse at the hands of the 30-stone politician in Knowl View, a council-run school for vulnerable boys in Rochdale.

It is the first time Smith has been accused of molesting children at the school, which closed in 1992 in the wake of separate allegations of sexual and physical abuse. The victim, Chris Marshall, says he was just seven or eight when then-MP Smith – known among the pupils as ‘the fat man’– forced him to perform sickening sex acts.

A total of 12 men have come forward claiming to have suffered abuse at the hands of the politician, who was knighted in 1988. Most of the allegations relate to Cambridge House, a hostel for deprived boys opened by Smith in 1962.

Detectives confirmed for the first time last night that they believed Smith WAS a predatory paedophile – and say there would be a ‘very realistic’ prospect of prosecution if he were alive today. As long ago as 1969, Lancashire Police were convinced Smith was molesting youngsters at Cambridge House.

Eight boys had made a series of strikingly similar allegations about his behaviour, saying he molested them under the guise of medical examinations and ‘discipline’. We have learned that Smith, when interviewed by detectives, said he was legally in charge of the youngsters and entitled to dole out ‘corporal punishment’.

But on the covering note of the 80-page evidence file, submitted the following year, the investigating officer concluded: "Prima facie, he appears guilty of numerous offences of indecent assault." Despite the certainty of detectives, an official at the DPP’s office – the forerunner of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) – replied in a brief letter to the chief constable there was no ‘reasonable prospect of a conviction’. The CPS admitted last night they would have made a different decision if presented with the same evidence today.

Police tried again to refer the file to prosectors in 1998, while investigating abuse in children’s homes across the region under the banner of Operation Cleopatra. But the CPS, which had by that point replaced the DPP, said that, while there was ‘sufficient’ evidence to prosecute, the law stated it wouldn’t be fair to Smith to overturn a decision made nearly three decades before.

The following year, the police AGAIN referred the evidence file to the CPS after another victim came forward, saying he had been abused by Smith in the 1960s. The CPS concluded that, since the allegations were so old – and since the victim had later asked Smith for a favour – there was ‘insufficient evidence’ to bring charges.

GMP, who have been investigating the allegations against Smith in conjunction with Lancashire Police, said it was ‘right and proper’ to acknowledge the suffering of his victims.

Steve Heywood, assistant chief constable of GMP, said: "This has been a very complex inquiry and I hope people understand why it has taken some time before we were in a position to comment publicly.

"It was very important that we examined all our records very carefully so we could be certain what involvement we had in investigating allegations against such a high-profile figure. We are now in a position to say that, on three separate occasions, files were passed to first the DPP and then the CPS containing details of abuse committed by Smith, but on each occasion no prosecution was pursued.

"Having now reviewed those decisions, we believe that if the same evidence was presented to the CPS today, there is a very realistic prospect Smith would have been charged with a number of indecent assaults, and that the case would have been brought to trial.

"Clearly, that is a bold statement to make but it is absolutely important for those victims who were abused by Smith that we publicly acknowledge the suffering they endured.

"Although Smith cannot be charged or convicted posthumously, from the overwhelming evidence we have it is right and proper that we should publicly recognise young boys were sexually and physically abused, and we will offer them as much support as they need should they wish to speak to us."

Rochdale MP, Simon Danczuk, said "What has become clear is that Cyril Smith should have been prosecuted. In both the 1960s and 1990s the police believed there was sufficient evidence to prosecute him for sexual abuse. We now know the CPS failed to act on police officers’ recommendations on three occasions.

"In the last week, I have met with senior police officers. They were in no doubt Smith should have been put in the dock and they wanted the victims to know this."

Sir Cyril’s brother Norman Smith said: "The Smith family is deeply saddened by and concerned about the allegations made so long after Sir Cyril’s death and at a time when he is no longer able to defend himself. Sir Cyril’s unwavering position was that there was no case to answer."

Rochdale council has confirmed it was going back through its files on Knowl View.

The following is an article in the Rochdale Observer as far back as 2007

 

Compensation bid over ordeal at Knowl View - September 01, 2007

FORMER pupils of Knowl View School have come forward to speak out about the abuse they endured there more than 20 years ago.

This comes after fellow pupil Michael Seed, friend and priest to former Prime Minister Tony Blair, wrote of the sexual abuse in his book ‘Nobody’s Child’ .

The men now plan to apply under the Freedom of Information Act for reports made at the time, in the hope of seeking compensation through the courts.

One former pupil approached the Observer to tell of the abuse he received at the time and how it ruined his life.

The man – who asked to remain anonymous – attended the school for boys with learning and behavioural difficulties in the 1980s. He said he was abused by fellow pupils and, when this was brought to the attention of staff, he was told to keep quiet.

He said: “The first night I was there the boys all stripped naked and jumped on me. This was when I told my mother,

“She was told that boys would be boys and it would be sorted. But from that moment on I was victimised.

“I tried to talk about what was happening and got told to stop lying or I would regret it.

“Something should be done about it, even after all this time, because it was a nightmare.”

He added that the abuse has had a detrimental effect on him since leaving Knowl View, saying: “This has totally ruined my life.”

A second man said he was physically assaulted while at the school in the 1980s. As a result of his ordeal he tried to take his own life.

He said: “I tried to run away, but I never told my mum why I didn’t want to go back.

“I was stripped naked in the gym hall as a humiliation tactic so I wouldn’t try to escape again.

“In another incident I was beaten up in my dormitory and hit my head on the sink.

“Nobody should have to experience that sort of thing. This can’t be swept under the carpet – something has to be done for other victims as well.”

His mother said she felt guilty for making him attend Knowl View. She said: “That guilt turns to anger at the people who let this happen. He was told he needed to be at that school and when he kept running away I took him back kicking and sobbing.

“When the allegations surfaced, it was all brushed over.”

She added: “More than anything I want this to be out in the open. Somebody needs to be held accountable for what happened.”

Hitting back at the rotten Establishment

Hitting back at the rotten Establishment | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

Establishment paedophile scandal is our greatest opportunity ever and is fast undermining what little credibility the old parties and their media allies still have.

The BBC Savile story was probably first rolled out to draw attention away from the issue of Muslim grooming gangs, which was dominating the news until then. It was meant as a propaganda red herring.

But, if so, it is turning out to have been a terrible mistake. Because what started out as the long-overdue exposure of one particularly nasty 'celebrity' first evolved into a scandal within the BBC's pop music section, then mutated into a disease of the entire BBC, then – like a deadly virus out of some African jungle swamp – jumped species and infected the Tory party, before spreading to the LibDems and Labour as well.

You only need spend a few minutes on the Internet to know how much more there is to come out.

With Savile's proven links with Yorkshire ripper Peter Sutcliffe, the case is looking more like the Dutroux paedophile murder scandal that brought down the Belgian government in 1996.

It so besmirched the entire Belgian Establishment that it opened up the way for twenty years of electoral advances by our friends in the Flemish nationalist movement.

There is now a really serious possibility that the same could happen here in Britain. So far, the controlled media have kept people focused on the relatively minor issue of Savile and his friends' liking for not quite legal teenage girls.

But more and more is filtering out about the former charity supremo's liking for little boys and corpses – and Savile's role as a pimp for a network of Establishment paedophiles stretching all the way to 10 Downing Street itself. Under several different Prime Ministers!

The large number of child molesters in the lower levels of Lib/Lab/Con is a fact already established by dozens of court cases.

The facts about the political household names with the same disgusting perversion are all swirling around the Internet too, but the British law on libel is a rich pervert's dream, so the Guilty Men are just about managing to keep the lid on it all.

If they fail, then what is at present still a problem for isolated individuals could engulf the entire Establishment. It could bring down the whole rotten lot!

Lib/Lab/Con perverts – and those who helped them – are all in the frame. Harman, Hodge and many others!

It's not just about the perverts themselves; it's also going to devastate the reputations of everyone who must have known for everyone who helped cover for them and thereby aided and abetted their revolting crimes against so many vulnerable children.

Senior Labour politicians such as Harriet Harman and Patricia Hewitt whose National Council for Civil Liberties was officially affiliated to the Paedophile Information Exchange and its twisted campaign to decriminalise incest and legalise sex with children.

Creatures such as Margaret Hodge and Tony Blair, who sat on Labour councils in East London when AIDS-infested Labour campaigners were raping little boys – and helped with the cover-up.

The Cameron thing, who only the other week made his warped priorities crystal clear on Morning TV when he showed far more concern about the possibility of 'homophobia' that for the need to protect children.

The other top Tory, Labour and LibDem politicians who have winked and turned away, leaving the perverts in their midst free to sate their warped desires on the bodies of terrified children.

The ones who killed Operation Ore by giving advance notice of police action so that the guilty could wipe incriminating photos from their taxpayer-funded computers.

The ones who ignored the clear links between Westminster and hell-hole children's homes from North Wales to Jersey.

 

A real chance that Justice will be done!

The suffering of so many children at the hands of the wicked men and women of the so-called 'elite' cries to Heaven for Justice. And, God willing, there is now a real chance that the guilty will be exposed and justice will be done.

The unravelling of the long and criminal cover-up would also bring the hope that the closely related financial corruption of the same self-centred, greedy 'elite' would also be exposed.

They are, in truth, not so much a Government and Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition, as a crime syndicate.

Together, they have allowed their friends and backers in some of the greediest corporations on the Planet to loot the common wealth of Great Britain.

Railways, gas, electricity, water, defence research, prisons, schools, hospitals, council housing, roads – everything sold off at firesale prices to their corrupt friends.

One of the currencies of this corruption, one of the ways the Establishment crime syndicate secures the aid of politicians, is of course money. Another is career preferment. And the third is the bruised and torn bodies of children.

If only half of this truth comes out, what little remains of those parties' reputations will be shattered for a generation. They have condemned as 'extremists' and 'political lepers' for all these years, but nothing could be as extreme as - and nothing would repel the public more than – their collective paedophile guilt. It really could happen. British politics really could be about to be transformed forever.

Another cover-up is still possible - unless we strike now to stop it!

But it is not a done deal. In 1999, Operation Ore caught members of Tony Blair's war criminal Cabinet - together with opposition MPs, judges, celebrities and senior police officers - in a web of child pornography.

According to one shocked investigating officer, quoted in the Scottish Sunday Herald in January 2003,"the list of rich and famous Operation Ore suspects would fill newspaper front pages for an entire year.

Yet, the Powers That Be managed to warn the guilty and to kill off the investigation.

It was a close run thing, but the criminal Establishment closed ranks to protect their own. They've done it before - and now they are tying to do it again.

Will they get away with it? Well, that could well depend on you. That's why I am taking time out to write this letter for you from working with our Publicity Department and research staff to create a brutally honest, devastating campaign to expose the criminal Establishment's most guilty secrets.

The facts are already out there online, but they are scattered over dozens of websites with tiny audiences, many of which mix real evidence with wild allegations which – while they may just be true – are unsupported by a shred of evidence and therefore discredit even the definite facts.

Our compilation will deal in facts. The facts are enough. Enough to disgrace our opponents beyond any hope of recovery.

At this point, I'd like to draw your attention to our latest general recruitment leaflet, just so you can see the top quality you can expect from this great new initiative.

Time to hit back. Because our campaign is ready to rock and roll! And, with your help, it's going to be big!

Because our website has a reach a thousand times longer than all those little sites put together.

Because we will be advertising the special section we are creating on it in the hardest hitting mass circulation leaflet we have EVER produced. And because we will be putting them out by the hundreds of thousands.

For years, those lying, thieving, corrupt, child-molesting swine have smeared us, persecuted us and licensed mobs to attack us.

And for years we've put up with it. We've taken the punishment, but apart from taking a few council seats off them, we've never hit back. I don't know about you, but sometimes I've felt more like a punchbag than a human being.

Well, from here on - all that changes! We're going on the attack! And we're going for their jugular!

Only one question remains: Will we have the money to do it properly?

As you know, we have got our finances back on track. That's largely thanks to careful budgetting and the Treasury Department's insistence that we live within our means.

So, exciting though it all is, we won't run this campaign on credit, and we won't dip into money put aside for other things. If the money doesn't come in, nothing will happen. That's the frank truth.

That's why I'm asking you to help. You can do so in one of two ways. If you really can't afford to help financially, then please get in touch with your local organiser or –if you haven't got one or if he's got lazy – with Head Office.

We need new volunteers to speed the rebuilding of our activist base. The best leaflets in the world are no use without people like you helping to get them into the hands of the public.

Or, if for some reason you can't be active, please pick up the reply form and pre-addressed envelope enclosed with this letter and use them - right now - to send the biggest donation you can afford to help finance this vital and potentially historic campaign.

I say 'historic' because every leaflet and website section will have on it a call for the past victims of Establishment child abuse and witnesses to privatisation corruption to get in touch with us and tell us what they know.

Just imagine; it could be a leaflet that you put out or you pay for that produces the extra piece of evidence that produces the successful prosecution that provides a missing piece of the jigsaw that suddenly all slots into place and gives the British people the true picture of what has been going on.

And imagine how good it will feel in any case to have those leaflets in your hand and know that we are going out together to hit back at last against those who have scorned and abused us, while all along their titles and positions have concealed the most foul corruption possible.

 

Are you with me? Then prove it, right now, and let's go get 'em!

Faithfully,

Nick Griffin
Chairman, British National Party

Holyrood expenses payouts include Labour MSP who bought public speaking guide 'for dummies'

Holyrood expenses payouts include Labour MSP who bought public speaking guide 'for dummies' | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it
LABOUR MSP Anne McTaggart was one of a number of MSPs whose claims have been made public after a rise of more than £900,000 in expenses in the last year.

 

A NEWLY-elected MSP used taxpayers’ money to buy a public speaking guide for “dummies”.

Labour’s Anne McTaggart was left embarrassed yesterday after the latest batch of Holyrood expenses revealed the purchase.

The Glasgow MSP spent £141 on books just a month after being elected in May last year.

The titles included Public Speaking and Presentation for Dummies, The Scottish Parliament: An Introduction and several books on Labour politician Barbara Castle.

The figures show MSPs claimed just over £12.8million in expenses last year, up 8.2 per cent on the previous year.

The rise of £969,436 to £12,818,835 is due to winding-up expenses claimed by MSPs who either stood down or were voted out of the Scottish Parliament at the 2011 elections.

Excluding these costs, MSPs’ total expenses were just over £11.3million, a decrease of £500,000 on the previous year.

A total of 48 MSPs claimed winding-up expenses, which include staff salary costs, staff redundancy and office and accommodation costs.

Who claimed what? A list of what MSPs claimed
Last year’s top spender was Orkney MSP Liam McArthur, who claimed £52,878.

He was followed by Highlands and Islands MSP Dave Thomson and Na h-Eileanan an Iar (Western Isles) MSP Alasdair Allan. All three made substantial travel claims.

SNP MSP Annabelle Ewing claimed the lowest amount – £3460.

First Minister Alex Salmond claimed £13,361 for items including office rent, travel costs including mileage, and phone bills.

Labour leader Johann Lamont spent £17,831, which included hotel stays in Edinburgh as well as taxi and train fares.

The Glasgow MSP spent £800 on website costs and more than £1050 on surgery advertising.

Conservative leader Ruth Davidson claimed £20,440.

Her expenses include £148 in June 2011, for staff training entitled “dealing with difficult people”.

Lib Dem leader Willie Rennie claimed £19,738, including £361 on return flights from Edinburgh to Heathrow in July 2011.

Green Party co-leader Patrick Harvie spent £24,266 on expenses including rail passes and hotel stays.
