Cyril Smith, Peter Jaconelli & Jimmy Savile – Latest Up-date

Up-Date to “The Police Station That Shamed Britain”

  • Following up on his last article –  “The Police Station That Shamed Britain” – Crime and Parliamentary Affairs correspondent TIM HICKS provides an up-date including Sunday’s revelations about Sir Cyril Smith MP. 


Cyril Smith, Peter Jaconelli & Jimmy Savile – Latest Up-date


There has been a furore over the weekend regarding the revelations about the rabid paedophile offending of the former Liberal MP Sir Cyril Smith, revealed by the publication of a book revealing the full range of Smith’s perversion.

In his book “Smile for the Camera: the Double Life of Cyril Smith”, Labour MP for Rochdale Mr Danczuk details Smith’s ‘rapacious sexual appetite’ and highlights chilling similarities between the MP and fellow paedophile Jimmy Savile.  He also details how Smith was protected from arrest by the Police, Crown Prosecution Service and MI5.  Summary here.

The first mainstream media organisation to raise concerns about Smith was Private Eye in 1979. (Full story here).

On 24th January 2013, Real Whitby also raised concerns about the parallels between Smith and Savile, as part of our campaign to expose the way that Savile and Jaconelli were obviously protected by North Yorkshire Police:

“Savile’s close relationship with Cyril Smith, referred to above, is very interesting and revealing. Both men shared a close friendship for forty years, no doubt reinforced by their common sexual preferences. Both were devoted to their mothers (Smith made his mother the Lady Mayoress of Rochdale and Savile referred to his mother as “The Duchess”), never married, escaped detection by the Police, evaded prosecution by the Crown Prosecution Service for the whole of their criminal paedophile careers, thereby escaping any consequences for their crimes during their lifetimes, although they were known to the Police and the CPS.

The decision by the CPS not to prosecute Savile and Smith at the time has been extensively criticised.

According to The Mirror, Cyril Smith was connected to another paedophile named Horgan who was also involved in the Satanic and sado-masochistic abuse of children. The article alleges:

  • The shock revelation over the satanist and MP’s friendship raises questions over any role Smith and Jimmy Savile may have played in Horgan’s paedo ring. Horgan organised a series of satanic-themed orgies for like-minded paedos. In one of them he raped little Michael and an even younger female child before watching on as others did the same. The monster, whose youngest victim was only two, also hung up his stepson and the girl on hooks. In further horrendous episodes he stripped the children naked, blindfolded them and tied them to a cross next to a black magic altar so that his “disciples” could use them for sex. Youngsters from two to 13 were drugged, tortured and sexually abused during the satanic ‘ceremonies’.”

Although it must be stated we only have circumstantial evidence linking Savile to the paedophiles who are alleged to have committed offences in the Rochdale “Team/Ring”. Given his obsessions and that he is alleged of have thought of committing sexual offences against children “every waking minute”, it is unlikely that this was coincidence or that Savile would have been unable to resist the temptation or pass up the opportunity of participating.”

One of Smith’s victims, Mr Alan Neal, courageously spoke out and said that at the age of 11 he was hit by Smith at a hostel for boys. Neal said: “I’m speaking now because someone has taken a right decision to raise this issue with the authorities.” He added that he told Police about the incident in 1968 when he left the school but on raising it everyone made the same comment that the person in question was a very important, powerful man”

According to the BBC witnesses (BBC evidence here), this is exactly the same response that Jaconelli’s victims had when they reported his sexual abuse of children to Scarborough Police Station. I have no doubt Savile’s victims received the same response when they also made complaints about him to Scarborough Police.

On one occasion the Chief Constable of Lancashire personally intervened to prevent Smith’s prosecution – clearly a deeply corrupt act.

In September 2013, Andy Rhodes, Assistant Chief Constable of Lancashire Constabulary, told delegates at a child sexual exploitation conference in Lancashire: “The reason Cyril Smith, Jimmy Savile and Stuart Hall got away with what they got away with, which was serious prolonged sexual exploitation of young people, was because leaders who had responsibility to do something, did not do it. They turned a blind eye. Buried their heads in the sand”.  Full report here

Real Whitby is not homophobic, anti-Conservative, anti-LibDem or anti-Police.  As a local news magazine we are implacably opposed to crime and corruption by whomsoever commits it ,whether it is a person or politician of whatever persuasion, or a Police Officer. The vast majority of Police Officers are decent, hardworking, and execute their duties to the best of their abilities often under difficult and dangerous circumstances. This includes the Officers that currently man Scarborough Police Station, who in recent years have conducted a number of successful operations against paedophiles in Scarborough.

This does not change the fact that, historically, North Yorkshire Police let down the people of Scarborough and Whitby very badly by allowing a dangerous paedophile-ring including Jaconelli, Savile and others to offend for fifty years, despite being explicitly aware of what was going on and having enough evidence to arrest them.

Organised crime can only exist with the acquiescence and assistance of corrupt police officers.

The conduct of North Yorkshire Police in respect of Savile, Jaconelli and the others was a disgrace – as was the response of North Yorkshire Police to these allegations, which was to threaten me with arrest for covering the story and to commence a transparent and sordid cover-up.

Lead article:  The police station that shamed Britain


The blatantly perverse report by Assistant Chief Constable Sue Cross falsely exonerating North Yorkshire Police of any blame for its inexcusable failure to detect and arrest Jaconelli, Savile and the other members of the ring that operated in Scarborough and Whitby for fifty years with the full knowledge of North Yorkshire Police is a disgrace. There isn’t enough chalk in the whitewash.

Assistant Chief Constable Rhodes is obviously an Officer of integrity who has the honesty to admit that his Force performed badly and has faced up to Police corruption.

Instead of turning a “blind eye and burying his head in the sand” (as every other leader in North Yorkshire Police did before him), it is time for Chief Constable Dave Jones to show leadership and integrity of the same standard that Assistant Chief Constable Rhodes has displayed – and admit the truth.

    North Yorkshire Police, ”turned a blind eye”, ”buried their heads in the sand”, sorry I don’t agree that was the case. It was a deliberate and conscious cover up via complete corrupt actions. It goes beyond just NYP, Lancashire was included with Smith, plus other forces.

    Only people at national level could have been behind the cover up, even higher than the national committee of the Liberal party, as the Liberals did not constitute the government/s, which were either Conservative or Labour party led.
    One can only ponder as to why the Liberal Party was left alone by both Conservative and Labour parties when they had the chance to rip it apart, why did they have such a political need for it ?
    Probably a cross party linkage of people with like minds, both sectarian and religious at base.
    On another note, ‘satanists’ are simply the mirror image of the biblical school, two sides of the same thing, as the bible is the only historical collections of writing that contain the ‘satan’ ideology.
    This is what’s being talked about in Leeds. >>>

    When Mountbatten was in India, he was openly known for his prediliction for young boys. His whole staff knew of it, so did the local Indian population.
    Many people have now come forwards who had been abused, but even more still are in the darkness, and on the other side, unfortunately there were children bought with gifts or money , most of whom will never come into the light. Procuring for people in the higher levels of society was, and maybe still is, ongoing.

    Paedophilia is not the same as homosexuality, as many homosexuals are openly against the paedophiles, so Smith’s action could also be construed as being ANTI homosexual, as also Saviles attacks on boys. Both could be defined by any psychologist as being misogynists, women haters. Both suffered from extreme ”mother” complexes, both ”mothers’ would admit of no opposition to them being the ”only woman)?)in their sons lives.

      Dear Gerald,

      I am glad that you have made the point that paedophilia is not the same as homosexuality. Which we entirely agree with.

      Children are abused by homosexuals, heterosexuals and bi-sexuals (e.g. Savile). Real Whitby opposes crime and corruption by any person, whatever their persuasion or political views.

      Best regards,

    Seems like a good idea, sue the Lib-Dems.
    As rumours are now being openly said to have been rife in Parliament, why not sue all three main parties, sue Parliament as a whole.
    Special Branch officers would watch as Smith cruised known pick-up spots looking for young rent boys during Liberal Party conferences in Blackpool, it was claimed yesterday.

    Police were also allegedly aware that he secretly took vulnerable schoolboys on holiday with him and his mother to Lytham St Annes in Lancashire so he could abuse them.

    I am one of the Staffordshire Pindown child abuse victims and thats all been swept under the carpet, and us Pindown victims have been systematically reabused.

    My son was being taken for PE lessons to Drake Hall prison for PE lessons without my knowledge or consent, along with his classmates from the special school for disabled children he was attending. I am being treated like a troublemaker for trying to find out why. I have contacted Lord Ramsbotham who has told me that Stanford Hill prison was also taking in disabled youngsters for PE lessons, and I’m wondering if their parents were also kept in the dark about this, as we were.

    Every MP I have contacted has done nothing at all to address the Pindown child abuse cover up, and I have written to all 700 of them.

    Clearly, there is much more to come on the Cyril SMITH story:

    Like Peter JACONELLI, Cyril SMITH was a school governor . . .

      Dear Nigel,

      Thanks for the link above, which confirms that Lancashire Police are investigating a ring of eleven other men that abused children with Cyril smith in a school. This vindicates the concern that we first raised in January 2013 that there was a ring in Rochdale, not just Smith abusing on his own.

      The relationship between Smith and Savile has some parallels with the relationship Savile had with Jaconelli

      Savile was a close friend of Smith and as with Jaconelli, he allowed him free publicity by allowing him on his BBC programme, giving him access to the children that attended the studio audience. We should not forget that Jaconelli also used his osition as a Governor to introduce Savile to some Scarborough schools. It seems to have been a mutually beneficial relationship. Savile never did anything for nothing. I wonder what Savile got from Smith in return.
