Queen Elizabeth welcomes Bramall just weeks after a dawn raid by 20 police officers involving sex abuse allegations

Queen backs Bramall:

Pride of place at Windsor Castle lunch for Lord Bramall after 92-year-old’s sex abuse case just weeks after a dawn raid by 20 police officers and Bramall questioned over the  allegations.

In 2014, a man reported to the police that, as a boy in the 1970s, he had been sexually assaulted by Edwin Bramall.

The man making the allegation had been under 16 at the time of Field Marshall Bramall‘s supposed assault on him.

Continued: It is thought the Queen, pictured with Lord Bramall in 1986, may seat him next to her at this year's gala, as a public sign of support for the D-Day veteran who she has know for more than 40 years

Lord Bramall – will also be welcomed at this year’s gala, one of the most prestigious events in the royal calendar.

It is understood the Queen may even offer him a place at her side as a public sign of support for Bramall whom she has known for more than four decades.

A source with close ties to the event revealed last night: ‘Interestingly, she was planning to do so whether or not the war hero had been cleared by that time.’

(Bramall has not been cleared – the police found insufficient evidence…not the same as being cleared)

‘The Queen can’t overtly support him but there are more subtle ways that she can express her feelings on the issue. Seating him next to her is a significant way of doing that.’

He was ‘warmly welcomed’ by the Queen and other members of the Royal Family including Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Prince William as well as Prince Andrew, Prince Edward and Princess Anne.

This was taken by many to be a sign of their support – even though he was publicly under investigation as part of Operation Midland, Scotland Yard’s historic VIP sex abuse unit.

‘all-party group of MPs’  campaigned for the release of paedophile William Pate convicted of  horrific crimes against children, and despite doctors at Broadmoor believing him to be ‘a danger and not fit for release’, the campaign was successful. In 1984 he was convicted yet again for paedophilia and ‘sadistic homosexual practices’ after imprisoning a young boy for 12 hours and abusing him.

Vishal Mehrotra‘s father told the Telegraph that “I was contacted by a young man who seemed to be in his 20s. He told me he believed Vishal may have been taken by paedophiles in the Elm Guest House near Barnes Common. He said there were very highly placed people there. He talked about judges and politicians who were abusing little boys,” he said.

Roger Howard Benson who did high profile work with disadvantaged youth for the Prince’s Trust charity has been jailed for five years for sexually abusing a 14-year-old girl.

Friday 13 November 2015– the only “msm” news report on this newsworthy item. From The Telegraph & Argus  – the daily newspaper for Bradford, West Yorkshire, England and no images available of “high-profile” figure Roger Benson.
Former Director of Prince Charles’ Prince’s Trust is a convicted paedophile

Roger Benson had labelled her “a malicious nutcase and a liar” when he was arrested last year and he did not confess his guilt until she gave evidence in his trial last month.

Judge Jonathan Rose said Benson’s denials had made the girl’s already dreadful abuse worse.

Benson pleaded guilty to five offences of indecent assault that took place on three occasions in September 1986.

MR ROGER HOWARD BENSON of KEIGHLEY, born in 1938

Mr. Benson was ‘head hunted’ for the post of Director of Operations, with The Prince’s Youth Business Trust.

…………………………………………………………………………………………..

Mr. Benson has had a varied career in industry, education and charity work. Through night school, while undergoing an apprenticeship as a textile designer he won a scholarship to Leeds University to read Textile Technology. After a short period at Courtaulds, he began a career in the academic world, which saw him rise quickly through the ranks to become Head of Hotel, and Institutional Management, at Leeds Polytechnic, which became Leeds Metropolitan University.

Benson has undertaken consultancy/research in small business development with 8 European/North American countries, and with the ILO. He has held many national and international posts, including being the President/Chairman of the Hotel, Catering and International Management Association. (1991 to 1995)

Mr. Benson promotes InBiz in its relationships with the Local, Regional and National Government.


At the time of the assaults, in 1986, Benson was working for the Prince’s trust. The girl told a school friend and the police were alerted but Benson denied the allegations and was not prosecuted until 29 years later.

Another Director of The Prince’s Trust – Sir Harold Haywood

Harold Haywood’s son:

“My father was very involved with the royal family during the Prince’s Trust days in the 1970s and 1980s but remained a close friend and adviser to the Prince.

“I recall my father and late mother, Amy, frequently attending events at Buckingham Palace, including one to celebrate the forthcoming wedding of Charles and Diana just two days before it happened.”

In 1985 Haywood took the Prince on a ‘plain clothes’ visit to a youth hostel and to charity centres in Soho’s red light district.

Sir Harold Haywood was Director of The Prince’s Trust 1977-88
Paedophile Roger Benson started with the prince’s trust in 1980 when Haywood was director. Benson was ‘head hunted’ for the post of Director of Operations with The Prince’s Youth Business Trust – wonder if Haywood appointed Roger Benson?

 

Haywood appointed Jimmy Savile as vice-pres of a youth club

Sir Harold Haywood’s time as Chairman of Albany Trust

From 1974 to 1977

Haywood is chairman of Albany Trust – during this time he coaxed into existence a booklet entitled Paedophilia: Some Questions and Answers along with fellow Albany Trustees, members of the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE’s Keith Hose and Tom O’Carroll) and the Paedophile Action League (PAL).

It was abandoned after a trustee saw a draft and branded it monstrous.”

One of the Booklet’s stated aims was to argue for the positive social benefits paedophiles brought to society:

“… about paedophilia, and to argue that those involved represent no special threat to society, but on the contrary are often a force for social good.”

1975-1976: Haywood & Napier, Albany Trust & Nucleus at Earl’s Court

Haywood was busy convening an exciting new ‘informal’ venture at Earl’s Court, gathering a group of colleagues together to form a ‘Working Party’

Paedophile Information Exchange’s Charles Napier took a leading role.

On Monday 22 August 1977, just before Harold Haywood departs Albany Trust to create the Prince’s Trust for Young People for Prince Charles, Charles Napier is discovered by Kensington & Chelsea Council to be the Treasurer of the Paedophile Information Exchange. The response of Nucleus … They require Napier to take a holiday to get over the stress and only resign his official position not his membership of PIE.

Robert Alston served as British Ambassador to Oman between (1986–1990), and as British High Commissioner to New Zealand and the Cook Islands, non-resident High Commissioner to Samoa, and Governor of the Pitcairn Islands between (1994–1998)

Pitcairn Islands…

In 2000, police investigating the rape allegations of a 15-year-old girl uncovered a trail of child abuse dating back at least three generations. Scarcely any of Pitcairn’s 47 inhabitants were untainted by the allegations, and barely a girl growing up on the island had escaped abuse.

For Britain, the case raised embarrassing questions about its supervision of the colony, now known as an overseas territory.

The Martin Allen case linked to Westminster paedophile ring

 Diplomats, royals, government ministers, business executives and Margaret Thatcher were frequent visitors to Stoke Lodge in the late 1970s

stoke lodge martin allen

Stoke Lodge, the Australian high commissioner’s residence in London. The Allen family lived in a cottage in the grounds.

The Allen family lived in the caretaker’s five-bedroom cottage in the grounds, separated from Stoke Lodge by just a few metres across a wrought-iron low-level fence about one metre high.“It was quite secluded where we were; people didn’t have any reason to come down there unless they lived there, really,’’ Kevin tells Inquirer.

The well-heeled jewellery family, the De Beers, were neighbours, so, too, the Showerings, who owned Allied Breweries, and there was an Arab king to the right.

The street, Hyde Park Gate, is particularly famed as Sir Winston Churchill lived and died there.

We would often go into the garden and speak to visitors at Stoke Lodge,” says Kevin. “My mum and I even stood at the fence and chatted to Prince Charles and Princess Diana once when they visited.”

Martin took a photograph of Margaret Thatcher and her husband Denis when they were leaving one of the receptions at Stoke Lodge.

Kevin’s bedroom was at the far end of the cottage, but Martin’s was halfway along the hallway, directly overlooking the ambassadorial residence.Since November last year, when police started fresh inquiries into the historical abuse of children by the VIP pedophile gang, Kevin has started his own digging.

What has shocked him, apart from what he believes is an apparent disinterest of the police in re-examining Martin’s disappearance, are the staggering links the Australian high commission had to men who would later be revealed as some of the country’s most vile pedophiles.

Kevin says it was standard practice for the high commission to supplement its regular drivers with stand-in and casual drivers from a particular chauffeur firm located just across the Thames.

His research has revealed that this chauffeur firm had, at various times, employed Sidney Cooke, whose gang the “Dirty Dozen’’ would later be convicted and jailed for the torture and murder of three young boys in the 80s. Jimmy Savile’s chauffeur, David Smith, who killed himself last year before standing trial on sex charges, is believed to have had links to the same car company in the late 70s. Cooke and his pedophile cohort are understood to have been some of the drivers who would pick up young care-home boys and rent boys in the expensive cars and deliver them to organised ­orgies in Barnes, Pimlico and ­Kensington.

“All about at the same time as Martin’s disappearance, all of these pedophiles were linked to the (known pedophile) houses and a couple of them worked for the one car company that Australia House used as subbies if they didn’t have enough drivers,’’ says Kevin, blinking back tears.“Cooke and a few other infamous multi-murdering people worked for this car company.”

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

In November 2012, the Mirror reported on Charles Napier who appears to be a central player in the paedophile scandal engulfing the U.K.

…The probe led police to the kitchen of a flat in South London where they found a letter from ‘Napier – who had a child assault conviction 20 years before – boasting of his life in Cairo as a”British Council teacher.

He bragged of easy access to young boys and how he could send obscene images back to Britain in diplomatic bags.(Charles Napier joined the British Council after his 1972 conviction.

(Henniker was Director of the British Council 1968-72).

Many questions remain unanswered including who were Napier’s referees for his employment with the British Council?

The scandal erupted again when Labour MP Tom Watson raised the matter with David Cameron in the House of Commons suggesting a network of paedophiles working in the UK had links to high levels of Government.

He became a Freeman of the World Traders (on the firm recommendation of Past Master Peter Gadsden) in 2000, and progressed through the Company to the Mastership in 2007-8. For him highlights of his year were the Sheep Drive across London Bridge in aid of the Lord Mayor’s charities (the brainchild of his wife Pat, also a Liveryman of the Company), and leading a delegation of World Traders to accompany Lord Mayor David Lewis on his official visit to Oman.

Alston served as British Ambassador to Oman between (1986–1990), and as British High Commissioner to New Zealand and the Cook Islands (1986-1990), non-resident High Commissioner to Samoa, and Governor of the Pitcairn Islands between (1994–1998)

Ambassadors to OmanLaing* (left) 2002-2005 & Robert Alston 1986-1990

Stuart Laing found himself under a shroud of controversy in late February 2011 when accompanying a trade delegation to the Middle East, led by the British Prime Minister David Cameron, that contained several delegates from UK defence companies including BAE Systems and Thales Group. Laing attended in his official capacity as Deputy Vice Chancellor of Cambridge University along with the heads of other British universities such as Imperial College London and University College London. Objections were raised that, as such weapons and devices of public order control had recently been used by the governments of Egypt and Libya, it was irresponsible for the University to be involved in such a trip.

Since retiring from the Diplomatic Service Alston has been involved with

education (as Chairman of the Council of Ardingly College from 2005-10 and Chairman of the Governing Body of the Marsh Academy New Romney fro 2007-13);

the Church (on the staff of Archbishop George Carey* from 1999-2002;

the Commonwealth Institute and its successor the Commonwealth Education Trust;

the Pilgrims, where he serves as a member of the Executive Committee; and the County of Kent as a Kent Ambassador and a Deputy Lieutenant from 2007-13.

 

Diplomat Robert Alston was on the staff of Archbishop George Carey

*Ball was not charged when the allegations of abuse against him first emerged in 1993. Instead the police and senior figures in the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), then led by the late Barbara Mills, agreed to issue Ball with a caution.

Peter Ball was not charged and this was done with the knowledge of the then archbishop of Canterbury, George Carey.

Ball proceeded to resign as bishop and went to live in a property lent to him by his friend the Prince of Wales.
