Ian Beer CBE – Supporter of Paedophile Bishop Peter Ball, Invitation to Margaret Thatcher’s Christmas Eve Party with Jimmy Savile and others…

Headteachers from some of the country’s top private schools wrote in support of Ball including Ian Beer, former head of Harrow. Lancing College and Ellesmere College

Ellesmere College 2011

The buzz and chatter in Big School on Saturday evening was palpable, the occasion was a very special dinner to celebrate the 80th Birthday of past Headmaster, Mr Ian Beer CBE. Members of the College Common Room and old boys gathered with great excitement, as many had not been back to the school since the 1960’s.

Ian was a very young Headmaster when, in 1961, he became Head at Ellesmere at just 29 years old

Victims of the retired bishop described him as a sadistic predator who groomed, controlled and abused them.

 Ian Beer first met Ball In 1961

Beer was a young headmaster at Ellesmere College when he met Ball. Ball was setting up the Community for the Glorious Ascension pigsty in Stroud.

It was Ian Beer who asked the Bishop of Shrewesbury if Peter Ball could be elected a Governor. 

Ball governed several schools since, as well as becoming a Chaplain to the Headmasters’ Conference for a period of time.

 

In 1993, when he wrote this letter of support for Peter Ball, Ian Beer had known Peter Ball for 32 years :

“On several occasions in all the three schools that I led I was faced with having to help (*redacted*)  sharing in the monastic life so that he could help them.  On each occasion the boy returned to school and resumed normal school life…”

And Beer says, “At Harrow, we hosted a group of  the young Christians involved in the Bishop’s scheme in Sussex.”

Warm relationship: The letter is thought to mark the beginning of a close friendship between Jimmy Savile and Margaret Thatcher. But further correspondence between the pair has been censored because it is 'personal' or 'confidential'

…………………………………………………………………………….

 Mr. Hooker –  likely Michael Ayherst Hooker

‘Managing Director of first institutional fund raising consultant in the UK’, specialising in ‘Christian stewardship

He was with the Elton John AIDS Foundation from the start.

A lifelong friend of the McWhirter twins, Ross and Norris.  In 1959, he co-founded Britain’s first fund-raising consultancy Hooker, Craigmyle & Co (now Craigmyle) with his friend Justin Shaw who is the son of the late Thomas Shaw, 3rd Baron Craigmyle.

http://mail.spinwatch.org/index.php/Justin_Shaw

Obitituary of Hooker in the Independent:

Michael Hooker was an early pioneer in the art of charity fund- raising.

In an earlier age and time he would have been described as a confirmed bachelor

In recent years, however, his existence was frequently enlivened by a succession of handsome young men friends, including at one time a budding pop singer

Hooker worked briefly as a schoolmaster in Britain and South Africa.

Hooker spent two years with the British Council ( before taking up a post in 1947 as a prep-school master at St John’s in Johannesburg)

From 1956 to 1957 he learned about fund-raising while working for the American Wells Organisation in Britain and New Zealand.

Conservative politicians were regular guests at his table, along with churchmen, academics and headmasters – and, as often as not, a rehabilitated young offender to act as waiter.

(“Confirmed bachelor”) Hooker was a fount of good advice to parents privately seeking information on the best education for their children and he tirelessly gave of his own time and money to favourite good causes including Aids charities, the NSPCC and the Police Convalescence and Rehabilitation Trust.

When his friend and fellow old Marlburian Ross McWhirter was murdered by the IRA in 1975 he became one of the chief founders of a special trust, set up in McWhirter’s name

A founding governor since 1991 of  Newton Prep, the London preparatory school in Battersea for intellectually gifted children…

he also remained dedicated to the cause of the Anglican Church. An appointment, in 1952, to the London Diocesan Board of Education, happily combined the two great driving interests of his life – education and religion.

More  recently in the news…2014

Margaret Thatcher was told about alleged sex parties with under-age boys held by one of her closest aides claims her former personal bodyguard.

Margaret Thatcher ‘Told Of Sir Peter Morrison Paedophile Claims’ But Promoted Him Anyway

 photo morrison20and20bodyguard_zpsq6sh8iow.jpg

Former bodyguard John Strevens (left) claims he told Margaret Thatcher and her private secretary Archie Hamilton   about rumours surrounding her close aide Peter Morrison (right) before he was promoted to be deputy chairman of the Tory party 

Top policeman Strevens passed on  information to Lady Thatcher and her private secretary Archie Hamilton at a meeting in Downing Street that one of her senior aides was suspected of holding sex parties for underage boys

Mr Strevens spent years by Mrs Thatcher’s side – he worked as Mrs Thatcher’s personal bodyguard, said that he passed on allegations about her confidant Sir Peter Morrison.

He said that Lady Thatcher appointed Sir Peter deputy party chairman of the Conservatives despite learning of the rumours.

Strevens said that he “immediately” passed on the information to Lady Thatcher and her private secretary Archie Hamilton at a meeting in Downing Street.

“She listened to what he said and that was it.

“A senior officer in Chester had told me there were rumours going around about under-age boys – one aged 15 – attending sex parties at a house there belonging to Peter Morrison,” he said.

“After we returned to No10 I asked to go and see her immediately. It was unusual for me to do that, so they would have know it was something serious.

Top Policeman: “I told them exactly what had been said about Peter. Archie took notes and they thanked me for coming.”

“There was no proof but the officer I spoke to was certain and said local press knew a lot more.

Responding to the claims, Hamilton said that he remembered that the officer had been at No10 but could not recall any mention of under-age boys.

“I don’t remember him saying they were under-age,” he said. “There may have been but the point he was making to her was that there were only men involved.

Tory grandee Lord Tebbit has previously stated that he confronted Sir Peter over the allegations

Former Conservative MP Edwina Currie also described him as a ‘noted pederast’ with a liking for young boys.

No.10: Alison Ward letter to Peter Morrison MP (invitation to holiday with your family on Islay)

Christmas/New Year holidays with “Jim’ll Fix-it”,  Jimmy Savile

……………………………………………………………………………………………………

Alison Ward/Lady Wakeham is married to a “fixer”, John Wakeham, Baron Wakeham,

 

Prince Philip, Lord Wakeham, Paul Turnock

John Wakeham, Baron Wakeham, PC, DL (born 22 June 1932) is a British businessman and Conservative Party politician, and former Chancellor of Brunel University.

 

Lord Wakeham with Prince Charles and Prince William

As Chief Whip in the most turbulent Thatcher years, he could be seen padding through the corridors of the Commons with a difficult rebel Tory MP for a quiet word over a whisky in the leather chairs and fug of the smoking room.

He is proud of being called the ultimate Whitehall “fixer”, and Lady Thatcher made good use of his abilities. Skilled with an iron fist in a velvet glove, he handled all the big problems that beset her Government, from advice on whether Cecil Parkinson should return to office after the scandal of his love child, to the privatisation of the energy industry.

His first wife, Roberta, was killed in the Brighton hotel bombing in October 1984 and he was trapped in rubble for seven hours, suffering serious crush injuries to his legs. The couple had two children. Wakeham married his secretary, Alison Ward MBE in 1985

the ultimate accolade as a Whitehall operator came when he was appointed by Tony Blair to chair a review of the House of Lords.

Lord Wakeham and Prince Charles

It was in another role, as chairman of the Press Complaints Commission from which he stepped down last week, that Lord Wakeham was able to show his prowess as a fixer, defusing the continuing battles between the tabloids and Buckingham Palace, placing a restraining hand on editors here, holding back politicians there from legislation to impose new privacy laws on the press.

Last year, on the PCC’s 10th anniversary, an A-list cast – headed by Prince Charles, Camilla Parker Bowles and Prince William – of PCC complainants were invited to a party at London’s Somerset House. The event was a real publicity coup; more importantly, it seemed to vindicate Lord Wakeham’s strategy for handling the tricky relationship between a hungry press and a publicity

The great fixer, always treading a fine line between Fleet Street, St James’s Palace and Downing Street, had tried to protect the rich and the famous from intrusions into their privacy while allowing newspapers to report on their lives. He did not please all the people all the time. Last week Charles Moore, editor of the Daily Telegraph, said it was time for a “new era” at the PCC, accusing the body of having a “collusive” relationship with some newspapers. According to The Spectator’s media commentator, “the PCC is as frightened of upsetting the Prime Minister as some newspapers are of writing about Lord Wakeham.”

Lord Wakeham, 69, lists yachting among his private pleasures. He has a small cruising yacht, and is a member of the Royal Yacht Squadron.

Director, NM Rothschild & Sons 1995

He was a director of Enron (close ties with George Bush)  from 1994 until its bankruptcy in 2001.

As a non-executive director and a member of Enron’s auditing committee, paid a reported £80,000 a year, Lord Wakeham was meant to ensure that the company’s accountants were happy with the way that it was reporting to Wall Street.
