Peter Righton, Charles Napier, David Cameron & John Whittingdale

Another two comments were left on this blog by Tom Watson’s source for his PMQ about “a powerful paedophile network linked to parliament and No. 10”. Here are the comments in full:

Thank you giving me the opportunity to use your blog. You are playing a major role and it is so appreciated.
Nothing gives me greater pleasure than seeing Liz Davies getting a second chance to progress what she started 20 years ago. A truly remarkable and very brave woman.
Liz and I liaised very closely in the early 90′s and tried to expose so many links before the system beat us down . To give you one good example Peter Righton and his partner disappeared after Righton’s convictions and were subsequently traced to Lord Henniker’s ancestral home in Eye in Suffolk.


The Chief Constable of Suffolk took it upon himself to visit and warn Henniker that he had 2 paedophiles with very significant national links on his property. Henniker was not in any way perturbed by this disclosure despite the fact that for many years he had had extremely vulnerable children holiday on his estate. He ran the Islington /Suffolk Project !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! a scheme for disadvantaged children from Islington to have country holidays in rural Suffolk
If you google the late Lord Henniker you will see how influential a role he played in The British Council – Righton’s very close friend/fellow PIE member Charles Napier was employed as a teacher by the British Council in Cairo even though he was already on List 99 as a banned teacher after his early conviction.


Righton and Napier groomed and abused numerous children in tandem.
Liz Davies never lost hope and now we all need to get behind her and champion her determination to get the Islington story out once and for all and then lots more dots will join up

I would like to use your site again in quick succession please Murun to see if any of your followers would be prepared to write a further letter, after so many of them are currently writing to their individual MP’s re supporting Tom Watson in his efforts to get to the bottom of the true extent of powerful paedophiles networks linked to parliament or government or establishment institutions en masse.
I’m sure most people would agree that there should have been cross-party support for Geoffrey Dickens 30 years ago. Thanks to the Daily Mirror and your tight little team this is very much back on the agenda . Tom Watson is very much the current day Dickens and we must all ensure that he doesn’t become ridiculed or sidelined like Geoffrey Dickens was. Tom has tabled his question in Parliament to Teresa May re what happened to the 50 page document presented to the then Home Secretary Leon Brittan . However she will have probably be able to delay matters by saying this is a big exercise to find such an old document.
I would like to propose a counter tactic to run alongside Tom Watson’s official route and the Daily Mirror’s efforts and would very much appreciate a few letters to accompany mine.
On the day of Tom Watson’s PMQ on 24th October 2012 a few hours later David Cameron made this statement – “The Government will do everything it can do, other institutions must do what they can do, to make sure that we learn the lesson of this and it can NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN ”


He was actually referring to the Savile scandal engulfing the BBC, NHS etc at the time but his words must be applied to all institutions including Government/Parliament – a far greater scandal than Savile.
My letter will be to John Whittingdale in his role as Chairman of the cross-party Culture Select Committee. After I explain why I see this as the most effective way of keeping the issue in the public psyche until the Police can do their job, I hope people will agree to write letters of support addressed to John Whittingdale as well.
The Culture Select Committee was set up to be an investigative process – we witnessed the power it has during the Murdoch/hacking investigation and it is played out in public on prime time national TV. It can call politicians,police officers,who it likes really.
In his role as Chair John Whittingdale chose to take every media opportunity to criticise the BBC and particularly the Director General over their handling of Savile and he in not so many words demanded the head of George Entwhistle which was duly delivered. He therefore has proven he has the tenacity,will and more importantly the power to bring those deemed accountable or responsible to book. We now need to urgently ask him to apply the exact same standard to another institution ie his own Westminster and be seen to support his Prime Minister’s words of 24th October ie a we will leave no stone unturned approach. This time members of the public,victims,people like myself can be called so that the public get their say.
Starting points for the Committee can be what happened to Dickens dossier, how do Parliament explain the risible decisions of Sir Michael Havers and Sir Thomas Hetherington, allegedly in that wonderful phrase “in the public interest ” otherwise interpreted as “in the establishment’s interest”, not to prosecute Sir Peter Hayman who was a PIE member communicating with other paedophiles about the sadistic torture of children ,why was a prosecution of Cyril Smith deemed to be “not in the public interest, why does Westminster appear to be the safest environment of all to operate as a pedophile with the full protection of the security services and colleagues ( reference Edwina Currie’s diary re Peter Morrison being known openly to fellow MP’s as a predatory paedophile even before he was promoted to be Deputy Chair of the Conservative Party as well as Michael Cockerell’s 1995 BBC Documentary where it was openly admitted that it was the role of Chief Whips to make an entry into their Dirt Books if an MP was caught ” getting in to trouble with small boys” as opposed to making a referral to the Police)
The list of questions/issues for this powerful investigative committee would be limitless .


My second reason for writing to John Whittingdale in particular would be to short circuit what could be a torturous route to trace the Dickens dossier. Mr Whittingale became Leon Brittan’s Special Adviser months after the dossier was presented to Brittan. (CLARIFICATION: I’ve checked this and Whittingdale didn’t become Special Adviser to Leon Brittan until 1985 and that was in Brittan’s role as Trade & Industry secretrary, not Home Secretrary. In 1984 he was head of the political section of the Conservative Research Department).  I am advised that Special Advisers are the eyes and ears of their Minister boss. I am also advised that Mr. Whittingdale is a particularly brilliant brain,a MENSA member with an exceptional memory. As a young 20 something ambitious he might be reasonably expected on arrival in his new post where such an explosive and controversial document, the subject of intense media interest, might be in his new boss’s system. Was it still in his in-tray,pending or closed marked no further action. He could be of great assistance and his committee have had similar expectations of people brought before them to recall highly significant documents even after several years .
My third reason for arguing that John Whittingdale is a very powerful and appropriate person to assist with answers and ensure that David Cameron’s message about EVERY institution must be answerable to the public is a more personal than professional one.
Mr.Whittingdale’s half brother is in my professional opinion one of this country’s most dangerous predatory paedophiles .Charles Napier was the Treasurer of the early PIE organisation – by definition a treasurer would have a full list of all members and had responsibility for payment of subscriptions in to their account at the Midland Bank in central London. He remained central to that organisation and I had the horrendous task of sifting through a huge collection of letters he wrote over the years to fellow paedophiles which showed him to be an evil coldly calculating individual who carefully groomed very young boys before abusing them himself and then sharing them with other paedophiles.
Mr Whittingdale will have the crucial insight into the family or environmental background that creates such a monster. Given his severe criticism of institutions like the BBC for failing to detect a similar monster (Savile) within their midst, Mr.Whittingdale is perfectly positioned to talk about the measures he and his family took to alert the relevant authorities whenever Napier took up a new post with access to children . When letters arrived from Sweden,Cairo and Turkey to family members during a period when Napier was banned from teaching and Mr.Whittingdale was firmly embedded within No. 10, what dilemmas did the family face, how did they deal with family loyalty as opposed to public duty expected of a powerful public figure. This experience and insight would be invaluable for the type of questions that need to be asked at a Culture Select Committee or Royal Commission to ensure that David Cameron’s stated aim is achieved ie. ” The Government will do everything it can do. …………… to make sure that we learn the lesson ………..and IT CAN NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN ”
On 12th December 2012 David Cameron added ” Collusion should never happen again”. He added ” the measure of our society is how we treat its most vulnerable members. “. Noble words now we need to demand action.
There are no more vulnerable members of our society than children who have been taken in to care and then re-abused by the very people charged with the responsibility of caring for them and protecting them, and even worse passed on for further abuse by the people who make the laws of this country and who are expected to lead the way on the moral compass.

I sincerely hope some of your followers would agree to support such a letter to John Whittingdale

If you want to write to John Whittingdale you can contact him here.

Just one clarification, it was actually the Sunday People who wrote the piece about the Dickens dossier, they are affilated to the Mirror so their work is included on the Mirror website. In my opinion they are to be trusted, if anyone has solid leads that they want followed up in the national media please write to Sunday People journalist Keir Mudie:

  5. If the truth really was to come about the Paedophile gangs working with number 10 and all previous governments-and the governments real reasons for doing this terrible thing, would bring down the monarchy, a revolution in other words. Is is why the truth will all ways be covered up.

  6. zoompad said: Sorry if people have already seen this, but it’s important, because I PERSONALLY told David Cameron all about the Staffordshire Pindown child abuse – I am one of the survivors, and David Rose, Bob Woffingden and Richard Webster who were with him at that 2002 Select Committee trying to hinder the police investigating institutional child abuse have been going round all the institutional child abuse investigations including Haut de la Garenne and trying to discredit them.

      Good on you for telling your story and for proving Cameron is up to his neck in this. Well proud of people like YOU!

  7. Is pedophile money being paid in the £millions to the British government so the children homes ca stay open. What must be looked into is the bankruptcy of Great Britain. The bankruptcy of this country is the reason why the Pedophile rings run by people like Jimmy Savile are running the UK. And why the British establishment and MI5 can’t do a bloody thing, the pedo gangsters are the British establishment right up to the royals, David Icke is right on on the dot.

  8. To the British establishment running the Pedophile ring is just another way of making money, the means justifies the end.

    The clear inference, from the investigation into the Elm Guest House coming as the police response to Tom Watson referring to ANOTHER paedophile ring, is that this other paedophile ring involves more high-ranking people. Whoever gets done over Elm Guest House will just be the strategic sacrifices seen as necessary to continue covering a greater scandal.

    It’s interesting you ask – “Mr.Whittingdale is perfectly positioned to talk about the measures he and his family took to alert the relevant authorities whenever Napier took up a new post with access to children .”
    The BBC published a quotation yesterday from one David Clohessy – a director of an organisation called SNAP (survivors network of persons abused by priests) where he condemned the handling of abuse cases within religious communities.
    What was not reported by the BBC is that Clohessy’s brother is a serial abuser and a cleric and that Clohessy knew that his brother was carrying out abuse and molesting young children yet he did nothing about it. He siad in an interview “he’s my brother; he’s an abuser. Do I treat him like my brother?”.
    The fact that Clohesssy knew about the abuse his brother was carrying out yet he protected him it is well documented – so why didn’t the BBC report this?
    Dr. Steve Taylor is a psychiatrist who is sitting in prison for downloading child pornography from his computer. He is well known to SNAP—he was one of their go-to psychiatrists for years. Indeed, the convict is so well loved by SNAP that the founder of the organization, Barbara Blaine, intervened on his behalf and wrote to the Louisiana State Board of Medical Examiners pleading with them to cut Taylor some slack.
    In other words, it is well known that SNAP has hired, hidden, defended, enabled, ignored and concealed the crimes of child molesters, but that doesn’t stop the BBC from using them for soundbites and quotations – so what’s the link?

    Does anyone have access to the trial documents for the Charles Napier and (Paul Pelham) Righton convictions? Some part of these must be publicly accessible, including the judge’s recommendations. I am amazed that no journalist appears to have bothered to locate these, along with whatever can be salvaged from the PIE membership lists and correspondence.

    I am sure that you know that the PIE spirit continues to the present day in active groups in Britain and Europe, some of which are composed of people who were PIE / IPCE members and organisers.

    Hold it – this man is half brother to an extremely serious paedophile!
    That’s a damned odd coincidence… and yet he’s expected to investigate high level paedophilia?
    I somehow doubt it.
    In fact, I’d suggest that his vehmence towards the Savile case was, because Savile was dead, a complete cover-up-by-distraction of any living paedophile ring members.

    Hey, I am new here but have been following a bit over the years. May I make a suggestion? How possibile would it be to put together the information – the whos who and even what institution and familes they are connected too – in diagram form? In heirarchical form (eg, family tree) would be interesting, to see who is above who. To cover all the information it may take several and varying types of diagrams. It’s just the the information carries quite efficiently in diagram form and can make the impact necessarily needed on this information.

    While Lord Henniker’s complacent response (and that of other members of his family) to being told about Righton’s activities and the risk Righton’s presence posed to children visiting the Henniker estate is shocking, I haven’t come across any reported evidence that would reinforce the possibility of a link between Henniker’s role as Director-General of the British Council and Charles Napier’s employment by the Council in Cairo. According to Henniker’s Guardian obituary:

    “After Copenhagen, he trod water as an under-secretary in London, and then, in 1968, as Sir John Henniker – the Major being dropped – he was appointed director general of the British Council by an informal mechanism overseen by the chairman, the discreet Lord Bridges. By the time Henniker took over, however, Bridges had been replaced by the less tactful Lord Fulton.

    From the beginning, Henniker encountered coolness on the part of senior staff, which, over the months, turned to sullenness, even non-cooperation. The objection had nothing to do with his performance; it was to the way he was appointed. He was an outsider, and perceived as a Foreign Office imposition.

    Junior staff, by contrast, saw the new DG as a breath of fresh air. If he had a query, he would bypass senior management. A junior colleague would be amazed, answering the phone, to hear the words, “Henniker here”, followed by a direct question. Physically a large man, he made everyone feel important, and was a great success on overseas tours. But as months turned into years, the senior staff found an ally in Lord Fulton, who, in 1972, invited Henniker to resign on the pretext of his first wife’s failing health.

    Henniker felt his career was in tatters; indeed, he never took a major public post again.”

    Whether or not Henniker had contacts and influence with Council staff at whatever level after he left isn’t clear, but given the circumstances of his departure it shouldn’t in fairness be simply taken for granted.

    Does anyone else have more specific information? Whatever else, Henniker’s apparent lack of concern about the children holidaying on his estate is disturbing.
