Establishment Darkness 169

I am a guest speaker tomorrow at the NUJ Conference in Newcastle, on the subject of blogging. Never one to appease an audience, I shall give them it straight on my opinions of the collusion between mainstream media and power, and thus those who work within it. I expect to hear a lot about how bloggers are irresponsible, do not check sources etc.

I shall be drawing on some of the content of this talk:

I post this again because nowadays this website has far more readers than when I first posted it, and because it encapsulates my thoughts rather well.

I shall tell the NUJ that the mainstream media remains very constrained in what they publish. The Jimmy Saville affair broke on the internet in a big way a year ago, and yet the mainstream media is only now catching up – and still not making key links, like to Haut de la Garenne.

I receive, constantly, emails from people wishing me to take up various cases on my blog and furnishing information. 95% of the time I do not publish because I am not able to investigate fully (there is just one of me) and I do not know the source: the exclusives on this blog come mostly from my access to well-placed sources I have known for years through my past diplomatic career, and trust.

A notable proportion of the cases brought to me by those I do not know involve alleged paedophile rings. I was sent information about Haut de la Garenne for years, which named a string of senior people alleged to take advantage of organised paedophilia in the care home. Among the judges, politicians and aristocracy, there was indeed the name of Jimmy Saville. I have to admit it was not just that I could not prove any of it, I was actively sceptical about what seemed a random list of names of the famous. We now know for certain that Saville visited the place several times. The whole Haut De La Garenne investigation always seemed to obscure more than it revealed; I do hope it is mow re-opened, and taken away from the local Jersey police.

Another case which caused me great concern was that of Hollie Greig, where the jailing of Robert Green seemed to me vicious and unjustified. But I had earlier refused a request on behalf of the Greig family to involve myself in the case because the allegations made seemed to me incapable of proof without investigative powers and resources of the kind the police have. That the police do not properly deploy those resources where allegations involve the powerful appears to me too often to be too likely. Where the accusation is that the judicial establishment is involved in a paedophile ring, for the same judicial establishment to start jailing campaigners is extraordinary.

But the Alisher Usmanov and Adam Werritty cases will be the main thrust of my talk to the NUJ. In the first, the mainstream media still to this day persist in covering up the criminal past of the convicted blackmailer and Putin cohort who purchased 10% of Facebook and 35% of Arsenal Football Club.

The Werritty case is much more sinister because it goes to the media collusion in burying evidence of the influence of Israel on British politics. The public were told that Werritty was at a small number of meetings where he should not have been. The mainstream media refused to discuss why he was at those meetings or what his participation was actually about – leaving the public to infer he was merely Fox’s lover or in some way they were making money.

Even when I was able to produce undeniable evidence that Fox and Werritty held eight meetings with Matthew Gould, now and during six of those meetings British Ambassador to Israel (and Private Secretary to the Foreign Secretary for the first two meetings) the mainstream media refused point blank to publish it. Mossad were present for at least two of those eight meetings. Gus O’Donnell’s report, whcih led to Fox’s resignation, had revealed only two of these eight meetings. This should have been a massive story. The media buried it (with the sole and belated exception of the Independent on Sunday).

No media were prepared to put any investigative resources into what Gould, Werritty and Mossad were doing. I had an impeccable senior source who told me that they were discussing preparing the political ground for an attack on Iran. You would think that, given the Werritty affair caused Fox to resign, that was worth investigating. The media completely blanked it. To this day the fact that Werritty and Fox met Gould eight times has been reported nowhere but one column in the Independent on Sunday.

I think my encounter with the journalistic profession could be quite fun. I shall also be arguing that bloggers should be allowed to join the NUJ; an internal NUJ debate on this is the background to my invitation to speak.

    Has anyone made a connection between this and the phone-hacking scandal/Leveson? I bet Brooks knows some interesting things.

    As for the BBC, their charter states:

    jimmy saville so called doc a damage limitation sham.
    notice how everything involved 14-16 year olds in the 60s-70s : )

    no interviews with 8-14 years.
    no interviews with leeds hospital night porters who took money from jimbo.
    no interviews with mandy or tony or the head of the catholic church.
    no interview with ministers or the mafia that run jersey.
    just an open and shut case of a jingly jangly lone sicko from i love the 70s.
    no conspiracy,no bbc involvement.
    a no uncle jimmy was not a child wrangling pimp for royalty,prime ministers,judges and the police.

    Thank God there are grade English cattle who are able to see through Jerry Springer. But there are many with a proclivity towards “annus horribilis” that are routinely stopped on the Hershey Highway only to have to become “Friends” then. Savile has risen to the highest levels of power by being civil and masquerading as Saville, but the jinn in the throat is a dead give away to those in the know..

  • Cryptonym

    Thanks for the coverage of the collusion of Labour with the Orange order in Scotland, the tip of an iceberg, I noted too the unstated connection between that post and the following one on BAE. Can’t comment on the paedophilia cases, but do remember some years ago some exposure of Savile’s activities from credible sources in the newsgroup.

  • Mary

    All mention of Sa Vile expunged from the home page of the BBC website apart from a one liner link to the ‘Entertainment’ section.

    The matter was discussed on Radio 4 Today.

    Of course, we will cooperate ….shocking if true…women should be heard…etc etc.

    The BBC has said it will help police investigate allegations of sexual abuse by Sir Jimmy Savile, which are being made in the documentary on ITV tonight. David Jordan, head of editorial policy and standards at the BBC explains the corporation’s position.

    Savile: – The evil that men do lives after them/ The good is oft interred with their bones…or something. Maybe his high-profile charidee work would not have been done if he had not felt deep Catholic guilt about his off-duty activities?

    And maybe, with the finances of the country diving out of control to join the pile of smouldering wreckage in the southern Eurozone, Turkey (hence NATO) about to intervene in the Syrian neoc(ol)onialisation project, the US rubbing its hands at the prospect of exporting live ordnance to Iran, and a squad of totally oblivious chimps in waistcoats in charge, now is the time to force the whole mess off the front pages in favour of the allegedly deviant behaviour of a dead sleb.

    £174000 divided by 52 divided by 5 gives a daily rate of £700. What does Jordan do all day for that part of our licence fee. Attend meetings and send memos I assume.


    Komodo The charidee work was a good cover and gave the monster protection. Nobody would take him on. He frightened his victims because they knew they would not be believed. His activities also gave him access to people in high places. Remember P Charles? This bling is totally revolting. Mostly paid for from our licence fees remember.

    ‘Sir Jimmy’s amazing collection of memorabilia reveals how he forged warm friendships with Prince Charles, Princess Diana and other Royals including Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson over the years.

    A host of Christmas cards signed by Prince Charles and Princess Diana are set to go under the hammer estimated at £300 to £500 each alongside some fascinating personal gifts from Charles.

    The Prince, who hailed Sir Jimmy as ‘a national treasure,’ presented him with a pair of Asprey and Garrard silver and blue enamel cufflinks with his fleur de lys crest for his 80th birthday, which are expected to sell for £300 to £500.

    Also going under the hammer are an hilarious set of photos of a private visit Prince Charles made to Sir Jimmy’s Scottish cottage in Glencoe in 1999.’

    Sir Jimmy Savile: Prince Charles’s love for Savile’s ‘ladies’
    The Prince of Wales sent Sir Jimmy Savile a Christmas card in which he asked him to ‘Give my love to your ladies in Scotland’.

    Sir Jimmy Savile was the subject of ITV1’s Exposure Photo: REX FEATURES
    By Tim Walker

    7:28AM BST 04 Oct 2012
    In light of ITV’s damning documentary about Sir Jimmy Savile’s sexual abuse of girls, the Prince of Wales may regret the closeness of their friendship.

    On one Christmas card that Prince Charles sent to the television presenter, who, as we now know, was interviewed by police in 2007, he wrote: “Jimmy, with affectionate greetings from Charles. Give my love to your ladies in Scotland.”

    The “ladies” are thought to be the women dressed in waitresses’ outfits, with the initials H, R and H on their aprons, who served Prince Charles when he dined with Sir Jimmy at the BBC presenter’s cottage in Glencoe, in the Highlands, in 1999.

    At the time, a grinning Sir Jimmy explained: “I’ve had a few nosh-ups with the royals and I thought it was time I returned the hospitality.”

    The Christmas card went under the hammer in July at a charity auction, which also featured a set of photographs of Sir Jimmy with the heir to the throne.

    Mary –
    My point is that some good was done, as well as, possibly because of, some evil. No more than that. I suspect that most charities are heavily dependent on donations made (a) as cover for nastier activities, (b) out of guilt for nastier activities or (c) by the obscenely wealthy and terminally unscrupulous to attract tax concessions. Fact is, they’re made, and they do some good. More good than I will ever do…

    No, I’m not excusing his (alleged) activities. Just making a small point.

  • Jim'll Dick It

    Watch the doc yesterday, I was struck by two things – one where he says to Gary Glitter “I’ve got two for you” before plonking him between two female children and the other where he has his hand virtually on one of the Nolan sisters breasts, she was 14 at the time.

    To put the 70s in context there is an episode of The Sweeney where George Carter says “phwoar, I love ’em in school uniform” as a girl peddles past on her way to school – and he’s supposed to be a copper.

  • Blue_Bear

    It read as if you were suggesting this story was just another citizenry distraction but it’s a risky move if it is.

  • Komodo

    Returning to the cut-and-paste-a-press-release school of journalism: one possible antidote here.

    What do we want? “Evidenced Bollocks Deconstruction”
    When do we want it? All the time.

    The key word is “evidenced”. Anyone can write op-eds.

  • WTC7 controlled demolition

    The Editor of Newsnight has issued a mealy-mouthed excuse for their burial of the Savile story;

    Much rumours online of Establishment (even ex PM’s) involvement with Savile’s ‘activities’. Would they really be so stupid as to be so brazen with their sordid behaviour? And if so how fear does this sickening story reach?

    Another one? You can’t beat this for a mealy-mouthed explanation from the BBC being caught with their trousers down.

  • kingfelix

    I remember the fire in Hove that aangirfan refers to. At that time, I was living at St Catherine’s College, Oxford. One day, a friend announced, with some embarrassment, that his father was a spy. He then mentioned that the house in Hove had been under regular police surveillance and that Peter Lilley had been seen there, just days (or the day before), the fire. His feeling was that a normal police operation had suddenly gone into the red zone and a cleanup had been launched from above.

    Always seems to be monitoring here

    Lacking tech knowledge I thought it interesting to hear 03 Sept on BBC radio the boss of answer a question on why their privacy policy re customer data had clause that 3rd party could access was because servers were in Israel which had different laws on computer privacy beyond his control.

    So how much private citizen information from around the world could Israel be accessing?

    Seems a bit of a trojan horse that most people don’t realise this possibility with such apparent home spun websites.

    The actual piece was promoting a new shopping basket tool which compared basket total price in a really useful way so will probably have successful uptake but all credit to the lady for winkling out the information.

  • Mary

    LifefBrian is chaired by Gerald Corbett who was head of Railtrack until he resigned after the Hatfield train crash. Martyn Lewis has just sold his Money Expert to Moneysupermarket for £87m.

    The comparison site business is obviously very lucrative. Don’t know how the Israeli servers come in but where there is a shekel or two to make, well it’s obvious. Wonder how much of our other stuff is handled there?

  • have a look at this

    Some observations on the Jimmy Savile story.

    1) Haut de la Garenne is very important, but don’t let your attention be restricted to it. Nor to Edward Heath either. Savile was a friend of Prince Charles, Princess Margaret, and Prince Philip, and met frequently with them at Highgrove, Kensington Palace, and Buckingham Palace. Frankly what do you think his role might have been?

    2) The British media STILL haven’t identified Michael Fawcett as Prince Philip’s male lover who was accused of raping the more junior royal servant George Smith. Smith was interviewed by Princess Diana about the vile attack on him, but died in his 40s before he could give evidence at the inquest into her own death in her 30s. Michael Peat had previously helped with the cover-up.

    3) In the British media, and in Britain more generally, all stops are pulled out when it’s a matter of protecting the royal family from real damage.

    4) Jimmy Savile kept several ‘homes’ around the UK (at least 8), in places such as Leeds and near Glencoe. Most of these were just ordinary houses, not big flash mansions. Notice the parallel with Marc Dutroux in Belgium here. Usually when this is mentioned, it’s in the context of Savile’s odd way of remembering his mother. However, his mother didn’t live in 8 houses.

    5) Wilfrid Brambell, the actor who played the older Steptoe in the series Steptoe and Son, is now known to have been a paedophile. Many think that one of the phrases used about his character in the series, namely “you dirty old man”, was a sick BBC in-joke. The same may also be true of the BBC’s promotion of Jimmy Savile as a) a friend of children, and b) a man who could “fix it”.

    6) In fact he “fixed it” for a lot of very influential people to get access to children for the purposes of abuse and, in some cases, murder. He also fixed access to corpses for sexual abuse, including via NHS hospitals. And I’m sorry for those who don’t like talk of freemasons because of all the nutty shit that’s said about them, but I’m afraid freemasonic fraternity DOES play a role in the ‘medical’ side of this story.

    7) Some big London teaching hospitals have long played a role in providing services to rich ‘friends of Britain’ from abroad. And what kind of medics do you think the filthy rich and the highly influential go to when they, or their children, fall ill? And what kind of organisation to you think might gather intelligence from those medics and involve them in its operations?

    8) Savile’s “fixing” role inevitably gave him an intelligence role, which in his case involved working with both MI6 (for obvious reasons, in the UK and Jersey) and Israeli intelligence (in connection with the Jewish mafia that controls pop music, most of the entertainment industry, and is increasingly AIPAC-ising both Westminster and Whitehall). (I should point out here that you can judge the great ‘expenses’ scandal by who initiated it and who benefited.) This “fixing” role was international and involved Savile in both Egypt and Israel.

    9) Esther Rantzen! Oh please save us from Esther Rantzen, this disgusting ‘saint’! Look a bit closer at her. Look beyond all the guff. Savile wasn’t Jewish, but he was fanatically pro-Zionist and “fixed” things for leading figures in synagogues in Leeds and elsewhere in the north of England. Curiously Rantzen herself was involved with the same Jewish regional leadership. Now she’s saying in the Daily Mail that ‘Jim fooled us all into thinking he was a saint’. Yeah, right, ‘course he did. There you were, Esther, you and the regional Jewish leadership, all so unworldly and naive to be conned by this wicked guy Savile. Would that be him and the alleged paedophile Greville Janner? Or just him? Didn’t you realise charities get used for vile purposes? Oh you poor poor deceived innocents?

  • Lemon Puffs

    “Esther Rantzen! Oh please save us from Esther Rantzen”

    I have often thought that ‘Childline’ makes an excellent resource for peadophiles who are interested in avoiding the attentions of the law and for that reason Esther should be super vigilant with regards to the staff and donators. Seems her judgment is not up to it.

    This is a woman who thought she would just walk into Westminster based on her celebrity. Another self-obsessed chosenite who feels entitled to everything by the looks of it.

  • Lemon Puffs

    “Wilfrid Brambell, the actor who played the older Steptoe in the series Steptoe and Son, is now known to have been a paedophile.”

    He also attended child sex parties on Lea Bridge Road with Beatles manager Brian Epstein. Is it a coincidence that he was also in the Beatles very first movie A Hard Days Night?

  • Jon

    @have a look at this – some very serious and unsubstantiated accusations in your post. I don’t have an axe to grind one way or another, but big claims need big proof – especially stuff about Freemasons and necrophilia, phew. Acknowledging that Freemasonry is a big area for nuttery doesn’t mean people won’t ask you for solid proof if you make such claims.

    I am quite saddened that you make reference to “Jewish mafia”, and imply that Rantzen’s Jewishness makes her a likely liar when she talks about Savile. You should take a look at the nature of Jewishness inside Israel for a start – there are lots of Jewish people who oppose the occupation, just as there are a lot who oppose neoconservatism, capitalism, torture, etc. “The Jews” are not a monolithic bloc of opinion.

  • Have A Look At This

    First, I must correct my error in the above post! I typed ‘Prince Philip’ when I meant ‘Prince Charles! Michael Fawcett was (is?) the male lover of Prince Charles. This has been revealed in the foreign media, but never in the UK media as far as I am aware.

    @Jon – I can’t ‘prove’ much in the time I can allot to posting here. But I’ve given a lot of pointers for anyone to whom one or more of the things I’ve posted are new and who wants to check them out for themselves.

    As for the Jewish mafia controlling pop music and much of the entertainment industry, this is common knowledge. Two ways into looking at it that I might suggest are the distribution of the drug ‘ecstasy’ and the history of the control over British cinemas. You could also look at the US-UK end of Sony, which dominates music publishing. Of course there is a Jewish mafia. If you are offended by the term, I’d just politely suggest you think about it some more. In no way whatsoever am I racist of any kind.

    You must have misunderstood what I was implying about Rantzen. I was ‘implying’ (with no desire at all to be subtle) that her association with a regional Jewish leadership and with charities that handle an awful lot of money should mean that she cannot be taken seriously when she says they all thought for so long that Savile was such a saint. I wasn’t saying that that followed from her ‘Jewishness’, if that term is meant to be applied to people who follow the Jewish religion or who have an ethnic identity based on their parents or more distant ancestors following it. Jewish leaderships are involved in criminal business operations. Again, if this observation offends you, see above. I’m among the growing number of people who are fucked if we are going to keep our mouths shut about this or pussy-foot around the issue.

    As for ‘the occupation’, well frankly I have practically zero in common with people, whether Jewish or not Jewish, who oppose the ‘occupation’ of lands seized in 1967 but who do not oppose the existence of the fascist and racist regime called ‘Israel’.

    The number of people with Jewish family backgrounds who do oppose the existence of Israel AND who still feel a need to identify themselves as ‘Jewish’ AND who seriously oppose Jewish racism (which requires of course that they reveal what they know about it, and condemn it in front of non-Jews, i.e. that they focus on exposing what Jewish racists would perceive to be a ‘shanda fur die goyim’ – have you heard that phrase by the way? – and that they piss on the very idea of something being good because it’s ‘good for the Jews’) is dwindling and is very small. You won’t find many people in ‘Jews against Zionist’ circles who fall into that category.
