God Help Us: David Cameron plans parenting classes for all families –

Lesson 1. Leave your baby behind in a pub after Sunday Lunch.

All parents should enrol in state-backed parenting classes to learn how to raise their children properly, David Cameron will say as he announces a new plan to stop families breaking up.

In a speech this week, the Prime Minister will argue that all parents would benefit from more advice on helping children play and dealing bad behaviour.

He will use a major speech on Monday to set out proposals for a new voucher system to incentivise parents to attend the classes in an attempt to make parenting advice socially “normal” and even “aspirational”.

The Prime Minister’s plan comes as he announces a £70 million investment in relationship counselling to prevent hundreds of thousands of families splitting up over the next five years.

Mr Cameron’s speech marks the latest step in delivering on the Conservatives’ key election promise to help families at every stage of life.

Establishment figures who helped paedophile bishop Peter Ball avoid prosecution for sex abuse revealed

Ball said : ‘He [Prince Charles] has been wonderfully kind and allowed me to have a Duchy house. The prince is a loyal friend.

‘I have immense admiration for him. He has been through horrific times and is a great person.

…they include


David Cameron’s late godfather then Tory MP of Lewes, Tim Rathbone, who gave Mr Cameron his first work experience in the House of Commons.

Mr Rathbone, wrote that he found it “literally inconceivable” that Ball would ever become involved with anyone in the way described.

Anthony John Leslie Lloyd, Baron Lloyd of Berwick, Kt, PC, DL (left)

Anthony Lloyd, who was a Lord Justice at the time, described Ball as a “saint” in one of more than 2,000 letters sent to the Crown Prosecution Service and Gloucestershire Police in his support from acquaintances.

“He is quite simply the most gentle, upright and saintly man I have ever met,” he wrote.

“If there is a latter day St Francis, then Peter Ball is him.”

In 1969 Lloyd was appointed Attorney-General to the Prince of Wales, serving until 1977.

made a Privy Counsellor

He held the office of Deputy Lieutenant (D.L.) of East Sussex in 1983.

Another Deputy Lord-Lieutenant for East Sussex from 1986 until 2000 was:

Lord Hampden, Anthony David Brand 

Lord Hampden, Anthony David Brand  and Peter Ball, were involved in the Derry Mainwaring Knight Satanist trial

Derry Knight told an astonishing story about his membership in a secret Satanic cult called the Sons of Lucifer

At the conclusion of the trial, Mr. Baker said he remained convinced that Mr. Knight was a genuine Satanist trying to break free, and not a swindler.

The biggest contributor was Mrs. Sainsbury, who wrote checks totaling $116,000. Next came the chief magistrate and former high sheriff of East Sussex, a wealthy farmer named Michael Warren, who is reported to have given nearly $80,000.

The local bishop, the Right Reverend Peter Ball, of Lewes, a monk of whom the judge said, “You may think he is a little unwordly,” also agrees. Father Peter,”… endorsed Mr Baker’s fund-raising with a note saying it was “a very necessary battle against Satan”.

The parish priest in the village of Newick, the Rev. John Baker, organized a donors’ group to back Mr. Knight in his struggle and mobilized the support, among others, of Viscount Hampden, Viscount Brentford, the Earl of March and Mrs. Susan Sainsbury, the wife of a Conservative Member of Parliament. Their efforts won the support of the Anglican Bishop of Lewes, Peter Ball, a member of a small monastic order who shuns ecclesiastical vestments and worships in a converted pigsty. Group Contributed $313,000

The 35-day trial in Maidstone in neighboring Kent – in which more than 100 witnesses were heard, including the aristocrats who invested in the struggle for Mr. Knight’s soul and the call girls who benefited from their contributions – earned itself a prominent place in the annals of British crime and eccentricity.


Elizabeth Butler-Sloss is related to the Sainsbury family – The Hon. Sarah Sainsbury, daughter of John Davan Sainsbury, married to Hon. Robert Butler-Sloss, son of Elizabeth Butler-Sloss,

Tim Renton

Margaret Thatcher’s former Chief Whip Tim Renton MP said any criminal action against Ball was “far too great a punishment”.

It was also revealed that there had been “two thousand letters of support…including letters from cabinet ministers and Royal Family”.

More on Sophie Rhys-Jones

The red-faced wife of Prince Edward quit her own public-relations firm last night after it was revealed her partner hinted they could set up sex tours and gay parties for clients and use the royal family to boost business.

Her partner, Murray Harkin, also quit after a newspaper sting caught him admitting on tape that he enjoyed cocaine and could procure young men and arrange sex tours  to the Far East for clients.


 The firm can procure “nice boys” for clients. “How young does he like? Does he like Asian boys? . . . And how young?

Referring to Prince Edward’s sexuality, “There’s no smoke without fire.”

Sophie had created a ‘royals for hire’ storm

(She’s not the first of the queen’s daughter-in-laws to be have done this:  Prince Andrew’s wife Sarah Ferguson)


Cash for access: Sarah Ferguson is caught on hidden camera during a sting in which she revealed she could organise a meeting with Prince Andrew for £500,000

Fergie took £15,000 from paedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein at centre of claims Prince Andrew slept with under-age ‘sex slave’


Prince Edward’s wife was targeted by investigative reporter Mazher Mahmood worked on a tip-off via Max Clifford that her PR company was selling access to the royal family in 2001, the court heard.


In the News of the World ‘s transcripts, the countess appears to betray strong Tory sympathies, describing it as a ‘shame’ if William Hague loses the election.

(The marriage of Prince Edward and Sophie Rhys-Jones – guest list includes Prime Minister Tony Blair, Sir Andrew Lloyd Weber, William Hague, Billy Connolly and Stephen Fry)

The men discuss places to visit in Thailand, Harkin recommending some ‘really sleazy’ bars in Bangkok. The three then apparently turn to discussing rent boys, with Harkin confiding that ‘in India I gave someone like two weeks’ pay’.


Rebekah Brooks decided not to run the story and instead rang Buckingham Palace to make a deal.

An agreement was struck for an interview with Sophie in exchange for dumping the Fake Sheikh story.


Sophie’s family is descendant from King Henry II of France and she is a descendant of Edward III and several peers – according to one expert, she is the 11th cousin of her husband.

Sophie Rhys-Jones

...viewed by the Queen as its safest pair of hands.

The Queen uniquely arranged for the public relations girl (before she was married)  to have her own pass to enter Buckingham Palace. This enabled her to stay overnight in the royal apartments whenever she wished.

‘She is trusted and relied on by the Queen in a way I couldn’t say applied to the Duchess of Cambridge or the Duchess of Cornwall,’ says a royal aide. ‘She is like another daughter to Her Majesty, they are that close.’

Most significantly — as the Queen approaches her 90th birthday this spring — the closer she becomes to Sophie, the more she depends on her. ‘She talks to Sophie in the way she used to talk to Princess Margaret,’ says a palace aide.

…making sure that the Countess’s 84-year-old father, Christopher, is included on the invitation list to many Royal Family events — a gesture that doesn’t extend to the Middletons.

The Queen and the Countess also share a fascination with military history. Sophie loves listening to the Queen talk about great historical events, and the pair are sometimes gone for hours, poring over ancient documents in the Royal Archives, which are kept at Windsor Castle.


Peter Ball and his safe pair of hands – Elizabeth Butler-Sloss

Elizabeth Butler-Sloss

The Home Office has backed Baroness Butler-Sloss as the right person to lead an inquiry into allegations of historical child abuse, after claims about her over a previous review.

Phil Johnson, who was abused by Peter Ball at age 13, while a choirboy, claims she wanted to exclude some of his allegations against Peter Ball.

Mr Johnson’s claims add to pressure on Baroness Butler-Sloss, who was appointed by Home Secretary Theresa May to head a review of how allegations of abuse linked to public institutions in the 1970s, 80s and 90s were handled.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . .

Reverend Graham Sawyer, the vicar of Briercliffe, in Burnley, was abused by Ball in the 1980s.

He has attacked the Establishment in light of the support received by Ball in 1993.

“It is terribly sad he was not prosecuted in 1993 and it has not served anyone well,” he told the Telegraph.

There needs to be a full investigation.

“Unfortunately the Establishment in this country is still strong and the relationship between the church and the establishment needs to be looked at.

We cannot allow the Establishment to collaborate in this way, it is not fit for purpose.

What is particularly striking about his latest job is that it should come so soon after his departure from an institution that has come under withering fire for its failure to deal openly and thoroughly with accusations of sex abuse.

A DEPUTY head teacher at a £4,000-a-year Catholic school plagued by a “terrible history” of child abuse was charged with offences related to “child porn”.

Allot, 39, was charged with possessing, showing and making indecent images of children as well as possessing extreme pornography

The former Tory councillor has been a teacher at St Benedict’s since 2004.

He left for a year in 2011 to work as a research associate for a project on the Prime Minister’s “Big Society” initiative and Catholic social teaching at Cambridge University.


In 2011 it was revealed that St Benedict’s, then run by Ealing Abbey monks, was linked to 21 sexual attacks dating back to 1970.

Father David Pearce, the former head of the junior school, was jailed for eight years in 2009 after he was convicted for of abusing five boys over 36 years.

Four victims were under 14.

Wanted priest, Father Lawrence Soper, has been missing since allegations he had also abused pupils emerged.



St Benedict's junior school in Ealing, West London

Prior sexual abuse at the school…

In October 2009, Dom David Pearce, a monk of Ealing Abbey and former headmaster of the Junior School, was jailed for eight years, subsequently reduced to five years, for sexual abuse offences at the school in the period from 1972 – 1992 and for one further offence in 2007 after he had ceased to work in the school.

In March 2011 Dom Laurence Soper, the Abbot of Ealing Abbey during the 1990s, was arrested on child abuse charges relating to the period when he was a teacher at, and the bursar of, St Benedict’s School; it was reported in October 2011 that he had failed to answer bail and was being sought by the police.

In the light of these matters, and other alleged but unproven offences, the Abbot commissioned a report to be prepared by Lord Carlile of Berriew with a view to making recommendations on the School’s governance. As a result of the changes made the Independent Schools Inspectorate said in its 2013 inspection report that the pastoral care at St Benedict’s was excellent.

In October 2011 the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith ordered its own enquiry into the same matters, to be conducted by Bishop John Arnold.


Lord Carlile & Janner

As a young reporter, I was given letters that might have helped make a case against the MP for child abuse

The establishment, in the shape of his fellow MPs, men such as Labour’s Keith Vaz, Tory David Ashby and the then Lib Dem MP now Lord Carlile, closed ranks.

Carlile played a prominent part, describing Janner as a man of “integrity” and “determination”. Carlile should have known Janner fairly well.
They were both MPs, both QCs, both members of Friends of Israel, both patrons of UK lawyers for Israel.
They appear still to both be patrons of the Friends of Israel Educational Foundation. They were regulars on the same parliamentary committees dealing with legal affairs. They were both to leave the Commons at the same time and both to join the Lords only slightly apart.

Carlile shared a small Commons office with Cyril Smith for many years.

Carlile’s mistress and eventual wife was a senior legal adviser to the Director of Public Prosecutions. Cosy world, Westminster, it it not?

DPP Saunders is closely advised by Alison Levitt QC, who happens to be the wife of Janner supporter, Lord Carlile

Carlile went on to be a stunningly illiberal “Independent” Reviewer of anti-terror legislation, where he demonstrated his independence by agreeing to absolutely everything the security services told him. 42 day detention with no charge? No problem. In fact there was no period of detention without charge posited so extreme that Carlile did not support it. Secret courts hearing intelligence evidence the defence were not allowed to see? Fine by Carlile. Control orders? Great. He is a fantastic bastion, protecting the public, is Carlile.

Even better, of course, at protecting his associates.


None Of The Seven Foiled UK Terror Plots Was Directed From Syria.  Has Cameron misled MP’s?

None Of The Seven Foiled UK Terror Plots Was Directed From Syria. Has Cameron misled MP’s?

None of the seven terror plots foiled in the UK over the past year was directed from Syria, senior MPs have been told by security and intelligence sources.

Despite David Cameron’s claim that the plots were ‘linked to’ or ‘inspired by’ ISIL, MPs have ascertained there is no evidence that any of them were actually coordinated by the Islamists’ command and control centre in Raqqa.

The admission is a serious challenge to the case for RAF bombing in Syria as it counters the hints from some Tory – and Labour – MPs that ISIL in Syria had to be targeted with airstrikes because it poses a ‘direct’ threat to the UK.

HuffPost UK has been told that in the run up to the Syria vote in the Commons, senior Shadow Cabinet ministers and senior MPs in other parties asked detailed questions about the nature of the threat posed by ISIL.

When pressed, senior intelligence officials representing the Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC) said that the seven foiled British terror plots over the past 12 months were either ‘lone wolf’ types, from individuals radicalised or ‘inspired by’ Islamist propaganda, or ‘linked’ to ISIL in other ways.

MP were further briefed that there was some suggestion that the Paris attacks may have been directed from Syria, although the intelligence was far from firm.

But there was no evidence of any of the potential UK attacks being directed in a similar way, even though the nature of the threat could change at some point in the future.

Some MPs were persuaded to vote for bombing in Syria after being briefed confidentially by the PM’s National Security Adviser Sir Mark Lyall Grant and other officials.

Boris Johnson and Sir Simon Henry Milton

Sir Simon Henry Milton (2 October 1961 – 11 April 2011) was a British Conservative politician.He lately served as London’s Deputy Mayor for Policy and Planning, and before that was a leader of Westminster City Council and Chairman of the Local Government Association.

Milton was a director of Ian Greer Associates, a parliamentary lobbying company “with close links to the Tory party” which was at the centre of the Cash-for-questions scandal in the 1990s.

Deputy Chairman Simon Milton was helping Ian Greer and Associates Simon Milton is now dead but his partner Robert Davis is still a Westminster Councillor.

Ian Greer, political lobbyist, has died aged 82. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/obituaries/12001034/Ian-Greer-lobbyist-obituary.html …

We all know Ian Greer, controversial lobbyist and close pal of Simon Milton , fled to South Africa following the cash for questions scandal in the nineties.

Was this the only reason he fled?

Maybe not.

Ian Greer has set up a charitable organisation for adults and vulnerable children affected by the Aids crisis in South Africa.

According to ‘Ground Up’ :

The Helderberg Street Peoples’ Centre in Somerset West cares for poor and marginalised people. It is a soup kitchen, but it also offers counselling and support to people with drug and alcohol problems, amongst other things.”

The HSPC website claims:

” In 2001, Ian Greer brought together eight churches of different denominations to help the poor and destitute in the community, by forming the Helderberg Street People’s Centre, now known as HSPC.

How very noble of Greer to devote so many years of his life to supporting the destitute and vulnerable people of South Africa.

But what’s this?

The Make A Difference Trust is proud to work with Mr Ian Greer and the highly dedicated team of carers and volunteers at the Helderberg Street Peoples Centre in the Western Cape: South Africa.

Through support from the Yves Guihannec Foundation as well as the many individuals who have donated funds towards this worthwhile programme, we have been able to truly make a significant difference in the lives of so many”.

Is this the same Yves Guihannec Foundation which is run by tax avoidance expert Robert Venables Q.C. and which has never produced any accounts for the Charities Commission?

It may well be.

… Ian Greer…

… lots of probing questions.

Lots of questions about Dolphin Square.

Lots of questions about Simon Milton.

Lots of questions about Derek Laud.

Lots of questions about vulnerable children.

Lots of questions about the Yves Guihannec Aids charity.

Lots of questions indeed.

At the time Greer, who thirty years later would achieve notoriety in the Cash for Questions scandal… was also working for the Mental Health Trust. In 1966 in a surprising detour from his political aspirations, Greer’s name had been passed to Lord Butler and Sir Evelyn Rothschild and he had accepted an appointment as National Director.

In his June 1995 statement to the Parliamentary Select Committee on Standards & Privileges Greer gave a more detailed account of his invitation to head up the Mental Health Trust, hand-picked by Lord Butler (former Home Secretary at the time Sir Ian Horobin MP’s prosecution for abuse of boys, promoted to Deputy Prime Minister in Macmillan’s Night of the Long Knives during) and Sir Evelyn De Rothschild.

Cam Force One? British PM orders £10m ministerial jet.. Whilst working families have their tax credits cut !

Prime Minister David Cameron and senior ministers are to get their own £10-million version of the US presidential jet Air Force One to whisk them around the world on official visits, despite a fresh round of austerity measures from Chancellor George Osborne.

An RAF Voyager A330 will be transformed into an Air Force One-style jet, allowing the PM to travel in style and security on long-haul flights. The conversion is reported to cost around £10 million.

The aircraft, which will also be available for the Royal Family to use, is expected to carry 160 passengers and have secure communication links, according to the Times.

It will also be equipped with missile detection technology, permitting it to fly over warzones where normal airlines cannot travel.

The VIP jet could be in service as early as next year.

Cameron and Osborne will announce the move as part of a security and defense review on Monday.

Patrick Rock court case adjourned

Patrick Rock court case adjourned

Judge Alistair McCreath, sitting at Southwark crown court, granted Patrick Rock bail until trial date in May.

Rock was originally charged back in June 2014 with three counts of making an indecent photograph of a child in August 2013. He was also charged with possession of 59 indecent images of children.

Mr Rock was one of David Camerons closest aids and was one of the government’s advisers on policy for online pornography filters.

Mr Rock resigned as a policy adviser to Mr Cameron after he was arrested.

The former deputy head of the No 10 Policy Unit has been close to Mr Cameron for two decades. The two men worked for Michael Howard when he was Home Secretary in the 1990s.

In Downing Street, he had the title of deputy director of policy and worked across a wide range of topics, including the government’s policy on child pornography. His seniority was demonstrated by the fact that he was one of only three advisers given his own private office in No 10.

Mr Rock is denying the claims.

The timing of last week’s ‘Panorama’ on child abuse worked well for the Conservatives

The timing of last week’s ‘Panorama’ on child abuse worked well for the Conservatives

The timing of Tuesday night’s Panorama special, The VIP Paedophile Ring: What’s the Truth?, was convenient indeed for the Prime Minister, coming hours ahead of his speech to the Conservative Party conference in Manchester.

The hour-long documentary pulled apart the Metropolitan Police’s Operation Midland inquiry into historic claims of child sex abuse by Establishment figures and appeared to absolve the former Conservative home secretary Leon Brittan, who was questioned by officers before his death this year, as well as casting doubt on evidence against other Tory grandees.

As David Cameron took to his feet with a determination to dispel the lingering image of the “nasty party” – still recovering, as he was, from the sleazy smears of Lord Ashcroft – it was helpful to have the persistent and damaging saga of politicians and paedophilia swept into the trash.
