Prince Harry’s former bodyguard, 47, is spared jail for downloading 10,000 child porn images due to his ‘exemplary’ military service

Prince Harry’s former bodyguard, 47, is spared jail for downloading 10,000 child porn images due to his ‘exemplary’ military service

A former high-flying soldier who used to be Prince Harry‘s bodyguard has been spared jail despite downloading child sex images.

Timothy Murfitt used search terms such as ‘toddler’, ‘kids’ and ‘baby girl pics’ when he searched for more than 10,000 disturbing images of children.

Maidstone Crown Court heard the 47-year-old former soldier was working in London when police went to his home in Sevenoaks, Kent, in April last year.

But Murfitt – who also had pictures of adults having sex with animals – was spared jail by a judge who praised him for his ‘exemplary’ military service.

Judge Martin Huseyin said: ‘Your history is remarkable. Your military record seldom reaches the levels of considerable praise that you have from those who dealt with you.

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

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

He was driven in one of the Queen’s cars to her chapel and stayed for the service.


Bramall and Heath

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.

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 :

 photo ball20header_zps6dwic708.jpg


“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.”

1830-2000 Small drinks party


Guest List

Carringtons, Tim Smith, Ian Beer (Headmaster of Harrow), Station Commander of RAF Halton, Jimmy Savile, Mr. Hooker, Davids, Hamiltons, Nicholsons, Alison Ward:

Background on some of the guests:

Lord Peter Carrington

(Considering the time frame and roles in government -“The Carringtons”  referred to on the guest list are likely the Peter Carringtons)

Peter Carrington served 4 years as Secretary General of NATO. He served under four prime ministers, McMillan, Home, Heath and Thatcher. He also chaired Bilderberg  for several years in the late 1990s.

Carrington was Foreign Secretary in 1982 when the Falkland Islands were invaded by Argentina

As it happens, Jimmy Savile declared that he had been in Margaret Thatcher’s company on Sunday 2nd May 1982:

Whilst walking together, on receipt of a note her face had turned ashen. Jimmy Savile had looked at her with concern “What is the matter, Margaret”, he said. ” The Belgrano has been sunk, was her reply.
From 1983 to 2002, Carrington was President of the Pilgrims Society.
Also on the guest list – Tim Smith

Tim SmithLeon Brittan’s PPS 1983-1985  He has no memory of the ‘Dickens Dossier’.

Harrow graduate and a Tory Party ex-vice chairman

Parly under-sec NI Office 1994

On 3 July 1997 he was found guilty  of taking cash for questions from Al Fayed, along with Neil Hamilton


 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.

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.


“The Hamiltons” are listed on Thatcher’s party guest list

(Again, given the time frame and roles played in government, it is likely to be Archie Hamilton and his wife)

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.


Lady Wakenham

On the guest list – Alison Ward, Thatcher’s secretary

She is a Deputy Lieutenant of Hampshire, and is patron or trustee of a number of local and national charities and organisations.

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.

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.

...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


 photo sloss_zpsotxyipfr.jpg

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.

Prebendary Willie Booth and Jimmy Savile introduced paedophile Peter Ball to the royal circle.

“He was propelled into the royal circle by two people, I understand. One was prebendary Willie Booth, a former chaplain at Westminster School… The other was Jimmy Savile.

The Old Bailey heard on Wed­nes­day that a member of the Royal Family, a Lord Chief Justice, and several MPs all called the police while they were investigating Bishop Ball to support him.

Jimmy Savile and Prince Charles’ very close friendship with sex abuse bishop Peter Ball

Jimmy Savile and Prince Charles’ very close friendship with sex abuse bishop Peter Ball

Peter Ball… was propelled into the royal circle by two people… One was prebendary Willie Booth, a former chaplain at Westminster School, who’d taken over from Caesar. The other was Jimmy Savile.

Ball’s royal friendships were not confined to the Prince of Wales.

Ball was on close terms with the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret, and was invited to preach at Sandringham.

Even the Queen supported him after his police caution. In 1994, when she was distributing Royal Maundy money in Truro, Ball was there with his brother, who was Truro’s bishop.

After lunch in the Chapter House, the Queen, who had been on the high table with local dignitaries, went across to Ball, held out her hand and said in the clearest of voices: ‘My love and encouragement, Bishop.’

Charles, meanwhile, must surely have been advised to keep Ball at arm’s length — just as he had been advised to distance himself from Jimmy Savile.

The Prince did receive letters from the public complaining about Savile,’ says a senior aide.

29 Nov 1998
THE mother of a trainee monk who was sexually-abused by a Bishop has slammed Prince Charles for giving refuge to the perverted priest.

Angry Mary Todd said: “This man ruined my son’s life. He is pure evil, a beast, and he’s hiding behind God.”

Despite being an old friend of Prince Charles, Princess Diana banned him from visiting their Highgrove home after the 1993 sex scandal. 

 Last night Mary, from Nottingham, said: “This is quite unbelievable. I don’t know what Prince Charles thinks he is doing.

“The man ruined my son’s life and should have been locked away.

“Instead he now lives in luxury on one of the finest estates in the country.

“I don’t feel Ball was ever properly punished – but the fact that the prince has given sanctuary to this pervert is staggering.

Bishop who abused young priests during naked prayers ‘got away with it for two decades after MPs and a ROYAL supported his defence when he was originally arrested

Bishop who abused young priests during naked prayers ‘got away with it for two decades after MPs and a ROYAL supported his defence when he was originally arrested

Peter Ball, the former Bishop of Lewes and of Gloucester, was arrested in 1992 after beating a 17-year-old novice monk and encouraging him to pray naked.

However, the Director of Public Prosecutions decided not to charge him after a number of VIPs including MPs, public school headmasters and the Lord Chief Justice phoned police to stand up for him.

Among 2,000 letters of support sent on behalf of Ball were some from cabinet ministers and one from an unidentified Royal, the Old Bailey heard.

Ball, now 83, was today jailed for 32 months, two decades after he was let off with a caution for carrying out a string of sex attacks on vulnerable youths.

The former bishop – who once described Prince Charles as ‘a loyal friend’ – preyed on his victims for sexual pleasure when they came to his home in Litlington, East Sussex.

Many were teenagers or in their early 20s at the time they sought out the bishop through his ‘Give A Year For Christ’ scheme.

Police files on sex abuse at Gordunstoun where Prince Philip and Prince Charles were educated have vanished

Police files on sex abuse at Gordunstoun where Prince Philip and Prince Charles were educated have vanished

Official police files on allegations of sex abuse at the former school of Prince Philip and Prince Charles have vanished, it has emerged.

Scotland’s Crown Office said files on the case of a teacher accused of sexually assaulting children at Gordonstoun in the Scottish Highlands could not be found despite being passed on by the police.

Derek Jones, a former English teacher at the £32,000-a-year Scottish public school, was accused of fondling and taking naked photographs of a pupil in 1990.

Jones was questioned twice by police before being sacked by the school and files were sent to the Procurator Fiscal, Scotland’s prosecution service.

 However, the victims discovered last year that the alleged abuser could not be brought to justice because he had died in a car crash in Kenya five years after the assaults allegedly took place.

Well thank god…. Queen’s finances are safe from cuts for two years

Well thank god…. Queen’s finances are safe from cuts for two years

The Queen will not face any cuts to royal finances for at least another two years despite an 11 per cent increase in her income, The Telegraph has learnt.

In the two years since the Civil List was replaced by the Sovereign Grant, the Queen’s taxpayer-funded income has shot up from £36.1 million to more than £40 million.

Campaigners have demanded that David Cameron and George Osborne, who set up the current funding formula, should carry out an immediate review so that the Royal family can make their own contribution to the Government’s austerity measures.

But royal sources have insisted the money is needed to continue with a backlog of repairs to the royal palaces, and gave a strong indication that any proposed cuts would be resisted.

A Call for Abdication

A Call for Abdication

Article from 2013 from The Fighting Back Team, it is certain that since 2013 there are many more who have been honoured by the Queen that should be listed…. Update to follow soon.
The current reigning monarch has, for many years shown poor judgement at the very least both in her choices of cabinet/government and the honours list.

Scores of names from her time as Queen have since been named and shamed.

I hereby call for her immediate abdication on the grounds she is not mentally fit for duty as proven by her own actions.
I also call for the immediate abdication of the direct heir to the throne Charles due to his involvement whatever they claim to have been doing in such proximity to this vile wickedness, along with his wife and children.

if we Must have a royal, let the boy do it. I’m sure its 2nd nature for a toff to pronounce such a declaration as “Let the boy do it!”
who knows, maybe william wont have been diddled, maybe he will be repulsed by the very thought of it all, sickened at the mere mention of the possibility….. although lets not forget, dennis grain (ref: Greystone Heath) was a teacher at eton during william’ attendance there.
She has final say on every Minister that sits in Govt and has to agree and accept each change of Prime Minister. She Can choose to say….” No, fk orf, one doesn’t want that nonce c*nt running one’s Country!”
Below are just some of the many honours she has bestowed upon the guilty.

Former chief executive of the East of England Ambulance Service (EEAST) Hayden Newton is set to be one of two people to receive the Queen’s Award for services to the ambulance service, which was introduced only eight months ago.

British Trade Union members working in the health care and the ambulance service have reacted with shock to Newton’s award as he “left the service with a poor record of reaching the government targets for response times and a worse one on industrial relations.”

Meanwhile, Investment banker Hector Sants, who was in charge of Britain’s banking watchdog at the time of the financial crash, is to be knighted for his “services to financial regulation.”
