Anglesea Trial Update

At Mold Crown Court a jury panel of 40 was first brought to court and members were told that the trial was listed for six weeks, although Judge Geraint Walters said that he expected it would take less than that.
Questionnaires were completed and a jury of 12, seven men and five women, with two spare female jurors for the initial stage of the trial, were selected.
The judge then asked the jury to return to court on Tuesday September 13 when the trial proper was expected to get under way.
Anglesea is charged with two counts of indecent assault and serious sexual assault on one man when he was a teenager and indecent assault on a second complainant when he was a teenager.  More...

Dame Mary Claire Hogg. Person of Interest!

Dame Mary Claire Hogg, DBE (15 January 1947), is a British lawyer and former High Court judge. She is the daughter of Quintin Hogg, Baron Hailsham of St Marylebone and his wife, Mary Evelyn Martin, and is the sister of Douglas Hogg.

…she has been a High Court judge in the Family Division since 1995 and was a member of the council of the Children’s Society for five years before that.

1990 – 1995              Church of England’s Children Society Home Office*

She retired from the High Court in 2016, 6 days prior to the beginning of the trial of Ben Butler for killing his daughter, whom she had previously exonerated despite advice from his local council not to.

Butler employed the dubious services of the now disgraced PR guru, Max Clifford
Oct 2012: Lady Justice Hogg Delivers Bombshell Judgment

The language of the judgment was so gushingly in favour of Butler that sources at the local authority admitted to being “shocked”, particularly at the suggestion that there could have been an “innocent explanation” for what had happened to Ellie.

Brushing his lengthy criminal record, including a number of convictions for violence aside, the judge commented on how impressed she had been by him.

She even commented on the fact that none of his convictions for violent behaviour had been directed towards children.

The judge stated: “He came through as a reflective, thoughtful individual, who at times over-reacts through frustration.

Mrs Justice Hogg appointed a team of independent social workers from a company called Services for Children to assess whether it would be safe for Ellie to return and to manage the transition.

Gray has now been found guilty of child cruelty following an eight-week trial at the Old Bailey in which her abusive partner, Ben Butler, was convicted of murdering their little girl.

Gray was a graduate of the famous Brit School in Croydon which produced the likes of Amy Winehouse, Leona Lewis and Adele.

As a teenager, she had minor roles in EastEnders, The Bill and Silent Witness before carving out a career as a graphic designer.


Disappeared British girl Madeleine McCann was made a ward of court, during summer 2007, on application by her parents.

During a court hearing on 7 July 2008 Hogg made an extraordinary plea to Madeleine’s abductor to “show mercy and compassion” and reveal her whereabouts.

Mrs Justice Hogg, who has effectively been Madeleine’s legal guardian since her parents applied for her to be made a ward of court last year, said she had excused the McCanns from attending the hearing because “they have suffered enough and I wished to ease their burden”.

Dame Mary Claire Hogg, – Her great-grandfather another  Quintin Hogg, was an English philanthropist who had an interest in homeless boys, remembered primarily as a benefactor of the Royal Polytechnic institution at Regent Street, London, now the University of Westminster

In Ragged School annals appear the names of Quintin Hogg, Dr. Barnardo, Tom Hughes, General Gordon, and Professor Leone Levi. The Barnardo Homes grew directly out of the Ragged School movement, as did Quintin Hogg’s Polytechnic …


*(Dr Pamela Mason Home Office/Duncroft Psychiatrist was also a member of the Church of England’s Children Society Home Office since 1962)

Derek Slade Dead

Derek Slade is dead. 
His victims can finally find peace.
One more member of paedophile Information Exchange is gone!

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-suffolk-35715907

Taking a trip down Slade memory name, we have....
A paedophile who was sentenced to 21 years in prison has links with a Labour politician who is a senior figure in the judicial system
Derek Slade, (pictured below whilst as teacher and now) who abused boys at the boarding school where he was headmaster in the Eighties, was given help in establishing a false identity by Derek ­Sawyer, former leader of Islington ­Council and now chair of the London Region Courts Board.
http://brynalynvictims.blogspot.co.uk/2013/11/derek-slade-st-georges-school-suffolk.html
And then .... 
Derek Slade, a former boarding school headteacher, has been jailed for 21 years for sexually and physically abusing boys at schools in Wicklewood, Norfolk and Great Finborough, Suffolk at St Georges School.This saga has taken a further twist with allegations in the Daily Mail that Slade 'escaped police for years using an alias with the knowledge of a politician at the heart of Britain's justice system'.The report alleges that Derek Sawyer, a former leader of Islington Council and now head of the London Region Courts Board, helped Slade maintain a fake identity after Slade was first convicted of abuse in the 1980s. It also states that Sawyer and Slade jointly set up a limited company - International British Educational Projects - that allowed Slade to work with vulnerable children under his false name and with a fake CV.Sawyer took over the leadership of Islington Council in 1992. The Council was the subject of much criticism over its handling of a paedophile scandal in the 1980s.http://brynalynvictims.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/derek-slade-st-georges-school.html
But the one, for me, that stood out was....
THREE former Suffolk schools are now at the centre of criminal investigations into historic child abuse allegations.The accusations, which relate to alleged physical and sexual assaults, are said to have occurred between the late 1970s and run through to the 1990s.
A solicitor representing ex-pupils of one of the schools - Oakwood School in Stowmarket - has said the number of claimants has reached three figures.
Andrew Grove, who is based in Cambridge, said: “We now have 100 complainants on the civil claim relating to Oakwood School.”
Last week detectives said they were re-opening the 1992 inquiry into alleged abuse at Kesgrave Hall independent school.
The investigation, codenamed Operation Garford, comes after former students’ calls for it to be re-opened were backed by Central Suffolk and North Ipswich MP Dr Dan Poulter.
Responding to the new inquiry, Dr Poulter said: “I am pleased that Suffolk Police are conducting a full and thorough investigation into the alleged child abuse at Kesgrave Hall school, following my intervention.
“A number of people have written to me raising concerns about abuse when they or their family members were pupils at the school, and I would again urge anyone who has been the victim of abuse to come forward and immediately contact Suffolk police.”
Four people were suspended in 1992 during the Kesgrave Hall inquiry. No charges were ever brought. The school closed in 1993.

Floods in Britain

Slightly off topic, 

This morning, I woke up to a steady "Drip."
It got more insistent as I tried to ignore it and I became convinced it was in the room, but in the dark could not pinpoint it.

This morning when I finally dragged my sorry behind from my pit, I went to grab clothes discarded at the bottom of the bed to discover they were p*!$£d wet through. 
Automatically preparing to blame the dog or the boyfriend, I felt a drip on my head....
Rain falling from the light fitting in my ceiling and, looking up, the ceiling appeared somewhat bowed. The estate agent says Tuesday earliest. He better hope the ceiling doesn't collapse I guess.

Yet as Britain faces some of the worst flooding it has ever suffered, I can only say..... Nature takes care of it's own. Finds ways to wash away the scum, burn off the excess, trim the fat.
The more this Country encroaches into open land, the less Nature there is to hold back the onslaught of the seasons....
Let's face it, this Country has enough grime that needs swilling away.

Peter Steen. Justice Fails

Having been on trial for 11 counts of violent crimes against children, not to even mention the cases which police decided were not "of merit" for court, Peter Steen was found Not Guilty on all counts.
Now look at the defence witness who purposely joined the support group on Facebook, thus putting himself open to direct interaction with prosecution witnesses - Contempt of Court.
Judge Parry, who, as a solicitor, represented most of the accused during the Waterhouse Inquiry - Insider info on events and prior knowledge of people. A Jury member would have to recuse themselves in similar circumstance.
Below is Daz Laverty's take on it
This man walked free from court on the judges orders today as the jury couldn’t reach a unanimous decision. Maybe they should  have read the publicly available Lost In Care Report. Everything below is taken from it. Justice? You having a laugh?
Peter Steen
JS39139393-steen1
The other main alleged physical abuser was Peter Steen, who has been named by 19 complainants.
Steen was about 36 years old when he joined the Community as a residential care worker at Bryn Alyn Hall.

Aston Hall Hospital, Derby.

Aston Hall Hospital, in Derby - owned by Nottingham City Council is another case about to come to the fore.

I would appeal to any survivors of Aston Hall to re-report abuses, and failings in previous investigations, to police and push now for answers.

The Nottingham CSA Action Group are working with survivors to support them as they come forward and prepare to make their statements to police.

A survivors support group can be found on Facebook


Calderdale Social Services

As a follow up to the protest rally we held in August, outside Northgate House in Halifax, a meeting has been arranged.
At 11am on Monday 16th November, I shall be attending with Russell Burton, a well known campaigner from Leeds, Stuart Smith and Jamiila Sims from social services, and Detective Chief Inspector Darren Minton from the police.
I will be raising the various concerns I have about past investigations and current staff issues, amongst other things.

If anyone wishes questions to be raised, please email me kazgray@gmail.com
