"The first occasion, yes he stuck his penis in, in me back passage..."
Transcript from the PANORAMA programme ‘HEAR NO EVIL’ broadcast on 10th March 1997.
The programme dealt with abuse in the northwest of England, specifically Greystone Heath in Liverpool, Halton College in Widnes, St Vincents school Formby & St Aidan’s in Widnes (the last 2 both run by the Arch Diocese of Liverpool catholic social services charity).
"If Steve Messham is hounded any more, several of us who have recently met up again after in some cases 40 years will speak out as a unit first to back him up and second as revenge for what we went through. "Expect some surprising names to be outed as gay abusers." Paul Leake and friends
“An investigation would stop more abuse,” said Ms Davies, a senior lecturer in child protection at London Metropolitan University.
“We need a nationwide police investigation to look at all these things. There were abusers in all of Islington’s care homes. Now they’ve moved on.”
Child experts say that the paedophile rings operating in all of Islington’s care homes in the 1970s and 80s had links to the North Wales homes and the Haute de la Garenne children’s home in Jersey.
In 1992, the Islington scandal was exposed by Eileen Fairweather in the Evening Standard.
But, no perpetrator has ever been brought to justice.
Ms Davies told the Tribune newspaper: "I have a lot of information. After the story broke everybody just left the Town Hall. I found one of them was in a senior position in another borough by Googling his name just recently...
"Where have these people gone? Not just known perpetrators – what about the people who colluded with them, who turned a blind eye?"
Margaret Hodge, nee Oppenheimer.
The leader of Islington Council at the time of the child abuse rings was Margaret Hodge.
She became Children’s Minister in Tony Blair’s government.
She was accused of not doing enough to investigate the allegations.
Liz Davies was told stories by children of homes being used as “under-age brothels” and children being taken on weekends away.
Tony Blair, who lived in Islington.
Eileen Fairweather described the original police inquiry in Islington as a "non-investigation".
She that many of the known abusers in Islington had gone on to abuse elsewhere.
Nicholas John Rabet, former deputy boss of one of Islington council’s homes, had links with the paedophile ring on Jersey.
Eileen Fairweather says "What really gets to me is that there was no real criminal investigation. At least three or four have been caught abroad, in developing countries, and that’s a damning statement about British justice. There should be a criminal inquiry into Islington."
'A child prostitute came forward to give the following account which implicates another school and shows the abuse to be much more widespread:
'In the email to Poly Prep, Bucceroni said he was 'a child prostitute' and was associated with a pedophile ring that included Sandusky, Foglietta, now-deceased Philadelphia businessman Ed Savitz and former Wharton School of Business professor Lawrence Scott Ward, who is serving a lengthy prison sentence for trafficking in child porn and smuggling photos and videos of himself having sex with a teenage Brazilian boy.
'"(Between) 1977-1980 I was a child prostitute associated with a tri-state (NYC-NJ-PA) pedophile ring. (During the) summer of 1979 I was brought to the State College area by Ed Savitz for the purpose of child prostitution with Jerry Sandusky at a Second Mile fundraiser," Bucceroni wrote in the email.
"'Due to time constraints, Sandusky became unavailable and I was introduced to Phil Foglietta by Ed Savitz & Jerry Sandusky. "Foglietta was introduced to us as Coach Phil who coached youth football in NYC. "Foglietta agreed to pay $200.00 for child sex and followed us back to a Philadelphia hotel, myself and another child prostitute then engaged coach Phil in child sex."' (Source)

"I think from that beautiful valley scene on the butterfly wing, waterfalls, pools of water, indescribable colors, and above there were these arks of silver and gold light and beautiful hymns coming down from them.
"Indescribably gorgeous hymns.
"I later came to call them 'angels,' those arks of light in the sky. I think that word is probably fairly accurate...
"Then ... I became aware... of a Divine presence...
"Then we went out of this universe...
"It was very comforting ... impossible to put into words...
"This is not Eben Alexander's consciousness... I was ... way beyond any kind of human consciousness, and really just one consciousness.
"When I got there they said that I would be going back, but I didn’t know what that meant.
"They said there were many things that they would show me... the whole higher-dimensional multiverse...
"Part of the lessons involved becoming all of what I was being shown...
"There was access from out there to any part of our space/time...
"We always try to sequence things and put them in linear form and description. That just really doesn’t work.
"But suffice it to say that I would find myself back at the earthworm eye-view... My guardian angel was always there and she was always very comforting.
"Then we would go out into what I came to call 'the coral,' which was outside of the entire physical universe.
"Again, they would show lessons and often those lessons would involve becoming a tremendous part of what they were demonstrating...
"A lot of people have come up to me and said, 'Oh that sounds like a DMT experience,' or 'That sounds like ketamine.' Not at all. That is not even in the right ballpark.
"Those things do not explain the kind of clarity, the rich interactivity, the layer upon layer of understanding and of lessons taught by deceased loved ones and spiritual beings...
"My experience showed me very clearly that incredibly powerful consciousness far beyond what I’m trapped in here in the earthly realm begins to emerge as you get rid of that filtering mechanism of the brain...
A heavenly being "told me that there is not one universe but many - in fact, more than I could conceive - but that love lay at the center of them all.
"Evil was present in all the other universes as well, but only in the tiniest trace amounts.
"Evil was necessary because without it free will was impossible, and without free will there could be no growth - no forward movement, no chance for us to become what God longed for us to be.
"Horrible and all-powerful as evil sometimes seemed to be in a world like ours, in the larger picture love was overwhelmingly dominant, and it would ultimately be triumphant...
"I saw the abundance of life throughout the countless universes, including some whose intelligence was advanced far beyond that of humanity.
"I saw that there are countless higher dimensions, but that the only way to know these dimensions is to enter and experience them directly.
"They cannot be known, or understood, from lower dimensional space.
"From those higher worlds one could access any time or place in our world...
"Certain members of the scientific community, who are pledged to the materialistic worldview, have insisted again and again that science and spirituality cannot coexist. They are mistaken."
Dr Eben Alexander. "Eben Alexander (1851 - 1910), American scholar, educator, dean and ambassador, was initiated into Yale's Skull and Bones in 1873." Dr. Alexander
Dr. Alexander considers, and rejects, nine possible biochemical explanations for his experience:
1) Primitive brainstem program. 2) Distorted recall of memories from the limbic system. 3) Endogenous glutamate blockade with excitotoxicity. 4) DMT dump. 5) Isolated preservation of cortical regions of the brain. 6) Loss of inhibitory neurons leading to highly levels of activity among excitatory neuronal networks to generate an apparent “ultra-reality.” 7) Activation of thalamus, basal ganglia and brainstorm to create a hyper-reality experience. 8) Reboot phenomenon. 9) Unusual memory generation through archaic visual pathways.
Dr. Alexander has been ridiculed by some of his former colleagues.

In 1932, Kurt Lewin, a German-Jewish psychologist, became the director of the Tavistock Institute.
He studied the use of terror to achieve mind control. (Cached )
In Germany, similar research was being carried out by the Germans.
There were many links between the fascists in Germany and the fascists in Britain. For example, the Order of the Golden Dawn, a masonic-style secret society which had Aleister Crowley as a member, included German Nazis and British aristocrats.
A member of the UK parliament, Simon Danczuk, has described the late Sir Cyril Smith as a "29 stone bully" who "imposed himself" on his victims whom he "humiliated and terrified".
Sir Cyril, who had freemason connections, was investigated by Lancashire Police in the 1960s but no action was taken.
BIG CYRIL Barry Fitton, a former resident of the Cambridge House hostel in Rochdale, told the website politicshome.com that when he was 15 Smith would make him strip and then Smith would smack his bare bottom.

From The News of the World:
"CHILDREN from the Jersey House of Horrors were loaned to rich paedophile yachtsmen as galley SEX SLAVES, a News of the World investigation reveals.
"The youngsters were told by care staff the boat rides were treats—only to be assaulted and RAPED at sea by pervert toffs...
"One of the most serious lines of inquiry in the investigation is that children were regularly loaned to wealthy yachtsmen to “do with them what they chose for the day,” according to our source close to the investigation.
"Haut de la Garenne staff described the trips as a treat for children who spent long hours cooped up at the home. But in reality the kids were subjected to the vilest sexual abuse on board the luxury boats.
"Our source said: “The allegations about the yachting community have come in from a number of different people..."
"The Kincora Boys’ Home in Belfast was opened in 1958. The home’s warden Joe Mains at once started to abuse the boys in his care. Mains recruited Raymond Semple and William McGrath in the 1970s and they joined in the daily brutal abuse.
"The assaulted boys tried to bring the abuse to the attention of the authorities, including the police and the press, who failed them utterly.
"People in authority knew what was going on because military intelligence officer Colin Wallace blew the whistle.
"Wallace told his superiors what was happening and even put out a press release in early 1973. It stated that William McGrath was using “a non-existent evangelical mission as a front” for paedophilia. He supplied the address and phone number.
Maurice Oldfield, who was Britain's top spy in Washington at the time of the Kennedy assassination, reportedly abused boys at the Kincora children's home.
"No newspaper followed this obvious lead, despite the press usually running Wallace’s propaganda briefings unedited.
"The authorities did nothing about it. And sometimes they were the abusers. One was the late John Young, town solicitor at Belfast, to whom the boys’ complaints were passed. Others were councillors. Yet others were higher up politicians.
"The abuse went on at Kincora for 20 years until finally exposed in a Dublin newspaper. Mains, Semple and McGrath went to jail—but the scale of the abuse remained hidden despite numerous inquiries.
Savile, near Kincora.
"The full story was covered up because McGrath was an important agent of British intelligence. He made frequent visits to his controllers in London.
"McGrath was a founder member of a fanatical Loyalist paramilitary organisation and travelled to South Africa and Rhodesia to buy arms for paramilitaries.
"The British state was arming Loyalist thugs to help crush the resistance to British rule in Northern Ireland. When McGrath was convicted of repeated child abuse he boasted, “Never have I committed an act unbecoming to an Orangeman.”
The UK military kill children from the UK.
"Boys from Kincora were also rented out to establishment figures. Who these figures were is still a matter of speculation...
In every major particular, the recent revelations from North Wales, Cheshire and Liverpool share the features of the Kincora case.
“There has been the same systematic abuse, the same consistent refusal of the authorities to believe the young people when they complained, the same ‘ring’ of abusers in different homes, constantly shifting from one home to another, the same apparent involvement of people high up in authority on the relevant councils and government bodies, the same tight-lipped police”.
Key aspects: "John Allen, a convicted paedophile, ran a complex of homes in London and North Wales that supplied children to wealthy outsiders. Allen is currently serving a six year sentence.
"At the Bryn Alyn home, two senior officials have already been convicted of systematic sexual abuse of children in their care.
"Another, Paul Wilson, was convicted of violent attacks on children but given a suspended sentence. He was accused of physical assault on 66 occasions by 66 different boys.
"A room at the Crest Hotel in Wrexham was regularly hired out on Sunday evenings to VIP's who were ensured a steady supply of children for their sexual gratification.
"Over a dozen victims who complained of abuse by the paedophile ring have met suspicious deaths. Two brothers who were abused by Allen were trying to blackmail him. In April 1992 one of them died in a house fire in Brighton. The other died soon afterwards in mysterious circumstances....
"One witness ...claimed to have been abused by 49 different people. "At the age of 11, he attended army cadets where two of the instructors, both policemen, raped him repeatedly. At an army cadet weekend camp he was raped by another instructor. A former leader of Hampshire's Army Cadets was found guilty of three charges of indecent assault and jailed for four years.
"Far from social services providing a haven from such abuse, it became the means through which he was exposed to even worse physical and mental torment.
"At his first home he was indecently assaulted by the superintendent, groped by one housemaster, beaten by another, half-drowned by a senior housemaster and slapped by a policemen he tried to complain to.
"At his second home, aged 15, he was abused by those in charge of the centre and offered up to wealthy outsiders. He described one of these as 'a powerful public figure'. After this man took him to an outhouse and orally and anally raped him, he was told, 'Just remember who I am.'
"At the age of 16, he ran away from the Wrexham home, but ended up in the custody of one of the army cadet instructors who had raped him. This man introduced him to a group of 20 associates, who took turns to abuse him.
"Amongst the culprits identified were two jewellers, a director of a major company, a local authority executive, a Roman Catholic priest and another social worker. Many of those identified have subsequently been convicted of sexual crimes against children...
"The most revealing evidence is that regarding one of the paedophiles, who it was hinted at was one of Mrs Thatcher's most prominent supporters.
"When the police finally arrested 17 suspects during an inquiry in 1991 the victim claims, 'For some unknown reason, he was not arrested like anybody else. "He was allowed to walk round the North Wales Police headquarters and he was allowed to vindicate himself from anything, as if he was the boss...
"I tried to tell the police of many instances not just relating to him and I was told at the time, and I will never forget it as long as I live, that they were not interested in that.'
"The tribunal was informed that the North Wales police had in fact recommended that the man be prosecuted, but this was blocked by the Crown Prosecution Service in London - which took over the case from its local branch...
"Those who turned to the police or other social workers for help were met with indifference or outright hostility. A total of 27 separate police inquiries failed to produce anything substantial.
"When the police finally launched a major inquiry in 1991, they secured the conviction of only four of the care workers and concluded that there was no evidence of a paedophile ring. A total of 13 reports by social services went unpublished. Clwyd County Council commissioned an independent inquiry and then ruled that its report could not be published..."
"25 children aged between 12 and 17 disappeared from care homes and foster care in Kent alone last year. Kent Council admitted that they had ‘no way of knowing’ what had happened to the children although it was suspected that these young people were victims of child trafficking...
"Police estimate that some 10,000 children go missing from care annually, though official government data recorded only 930 last year…something of a discrepancy, that...
The Rt Rev Peter Ball, 80, who served as the Bishop of Lewes and later Bishop of Gloucester, was arrested at his home in Somerset, on suspicion of eight sex offences against eight boys and young men.
"I have known for 20 years the inside story of the inquiry into the paedophile ring that, last month, the MP Tom Watson implied was shut down to protect a No10 aide in the Thatcher administration.
"Mr Watson was contacted in October by one of the inquiry’s child protection experts, now retired. The coverage of the Savile scandal had awoken painful memories of how his evidence about Peter Righton, then a child care expert and children’s homes consultant, was destroyed. He told Mr Watson: “My unit was closed down almost overnight and a manager took my files and burned them.”
"Righton’s correspondents included an assistant bishop, artists, aristocrats and public school teachers. It then emerged that Righton’s lover ran a school for emotionally disturbed children, and Righton was vice-chairman of governors. New Barns School in Gloucestershire, which was attended by many children from London care homes, was investigated and closed down on child welfare grounds.
"Watson’s whistleblower was told by a detective that the inquiry into Peter Righton’s alleged ring was closed “from on high”. Righton was given a £900 fine for his child porn imports, and a caution for a 30-year-old indecent assault. Many similar investigations into paedophile rings have also hit the buffers. Cover-ups have taken place; events and individuals demanding investigation were ignored."
