!!! MUST READ !!! – Operation Yewtree Blown Wide Open



Operation Yewtree – the biggest Police cover-up since Hillsborough

  • Crime and Parliamentary Affairs correspondent TIM HICKS follows up on the incredible revelations of misconduct in North Yorkshire Police revealed by the BBC Inside Out programme.

That particularly dubious Constabulary that merits careful consideration

[Lord Maginnis of Drumglass, commenting on North Yorkshire Police, following his involvement in the case of Mrs Barbara Hofschröer].

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Jimmy Savile’s principal residence was in Leeds and he travelled regularly to Scarborough from 1960 onwards to visit his mother and to stay with her. He continued his close association with Scarborough after her death, staying there regularly in his flat at the Esplanade. It follows from this that the full and meticulous investigation of his activities in Leeds and Scarborough are of critical interest to Operation Yewtree, the Home Office, HM Inspector of Constabulary and the IPCC in determining why it was that he was able to offend for so long, without being arrested by the Police.

Yet the West Yorkshire Police investigation into Savile, called Operation Newgreen, has been widely condemned as a farce.  Alan Collins, a solicitor representing 40 of Savile’s victims, is quoted in the press as having told ITV’s Daybreak programme:

The report begs a lot more questions. It provides some answers but the report reveals memories that are not as sharp as perhaps they ought to be, ‘can’t remember’, documents that can’t seem to be located. It doesn’t add up.  But my take is that there seems to be a collective myopia and the collective myopia is evidenced by Savile. He was able to run rings around the police for decades. He used police officers.  He was ingrained with them, dovetailed with them.

Unusually, Chief Constable Nick Gargan of Avon and Somerset has broken ranks and also criticised West Yorkshire Police over its handling of its Savile enquiry. He is quoted in the Yorkshire Post as saying:

It seems clear to me that Operation Newgreen does not have the look and feel of an independent report. As I turned from one page to the next, I saw example after example of the author putting the case for West Yorkshire Police. At times this case was put with some force and emotion and more than a hint of exasperation with other bodies. In that respect, Operation Newgreen was unsuccessful if it was its intention to give an impression of independent assurance: it may even have had the effect of strengthening suspicion that West Yorkshire Police was at the very least being defensive.”

Mr Gargan suggested the force carry out a “very open and public examination of its actions” and a public engagement strategy to deal with issues raised by the review. He said:

I think you will benefit from a situation in which your staff respond to criticism with the questions ‘maybe this person has a point’ more readily than ‘how do I prove them wrong?’.

North Yorkshire Police deny all knowledge

The initial response of North Yorkshire Police was to deny all knowledge, despite the fact that Savile had been mentioned in the press and on the BBC regularly as living in Scarborough and was well known there as a Freeman of the Borough. A force spokesman commented in 2012:

When the allegations surrounding Jimmy Savile were publicised, we carried out extensive searches of force records which did not reveal a local connection”.

Given that North Yorkshire Police nevertheless provided Savile with a police car and driver to take him to a community event for young people it had organised in Selby in 2008, where Savile shared the platform with the Chief Constable, this was clearly a lie.

On the 27th of April 2013 following confirmation from the Detective at Operation Yewtree who liaised with Real Whitby, that all the information gathered by the Metropolitan Police as part of Operation Yewtree would be passed on to North Yorkshire Police, who would conduct the investigation from then on, I wrote to Operation Yewtree stating (prophetically) that:

“A central issue of the Scarborough aspect of Operation Yewtree is that there are consistent allegations of corruption within North Yorkshire Police in respect of their response to Jaconelli and Savile.  I am satisfied that North Yorkshire Police will not investigate the allegations concerning Savile, Jaconeli and the response of Scarborough Police impartially and that referring the investigation to North Yorkshire Police means that the integrity of this aspect of Operation Yewtree has been completely compromised.”

Our analysis of the North Yorkshire Police investigation by Deputy Chief Constable Cross showed that it is also another whitewash.

Enter the BBC

The following revelations were made in the BBC Inside Out documentary aired on Monday the 10th of February 2014 at 7.30 pm:

  • Archive BBC film was shown proving that Jaconelli was an associate of Savile, practised judo with Savile, filmed in Scarborough for the BBC.
  • Multiple witnesses alleged that complaints had been made to North Yorkshire Police about Peter Jaconelli in his lifetime, alleging that he was a paedophile.
  • It was alleged that North Yorkshire Police had admitted at the time it was completely aware of the allegations about Jaconelli, that there had been other complainants, but Peter Jaconelli was not arrested because of his status as a Councillor and Mayor.
  • It was further alleged that a statement had been taken as part of a formal criminal complaint.
  • It was also alleged that it was common knowledge throughout Scarborough that Peter Jaconelli was a paedophile.
  • It emerged that North Yorkshire Police Operation Yewtree investigation had not bothered to interview any of the witnesses developed by Real Whitby.

BBC programme and trailer are below:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-25979802

This has some profound implications for Operation Yewtree.

Peter Jaconelli was a close associate of Savile and therefore falls within Strand 2 of Operation Yewtree.  Although he is unquestionably Britain’s longest offending and most successful paedophile ever, probably having committed thousands of offences in Scarborough over fifty two years, he is not mentioned anywhere in Operation Yewtree. Yet the BBC programme showed there was ample evidence of his offending being known to the Police.

A follow up article in Real Whitby alleged that Officers had deleted and withheld intelligence on Savile and his associates and that there had been other examples of misuse of police intelligence in connection with other cases in North and West Yorkshire Police. These concerns now stand vindicated:

  • The BBC quoted a victim confirming that he had made a complaint and given a statement to Police about Jaconelli. Yet this information has miraculously disappeared from Police intelligence.
  • It was alleged, on Inside Out, that other complaints had been made to the Police. Yet this information has also miraculously disappeared from Police intelligence.
  • Every schoolboy and most parents in Scarborough knew of Jaconelli’s offending and yet we are asked to believe that he was completely unknown to Police and does not appear anywhere in any Police note-book or intelligence system.
  • In 2003 North Yorkshire Police conducted a major paedophile investigation in Scarborough which generated so much intelligence it had to be managed through HOLMES (Home Office Large Major Intelligence System).  According to local and national newspaper reports , Savile, Jaconelli and Corrigan featured in this investigation as suspects. The intelligence generated in this major operation has also miraculously disappeared.
  • As part of its Operation Yewtree investigation, North Yorkshire Police should have interviewed the witnesses identified by Real Whitby, entered their evidence into HOLMES and then tasked a specialist sexual offences intelligence detective to compare it to the original intelligence that had been gathered during the 2003 investigation to see what additional evidence this produced. It appears that no criminal record check was conducted. A cold case review may also have resolved any outstanding offences. However, Deputy Chief Constable Cross did none of these things, effectively ensuring that intelligence on Savile, Corrigan and Jaconelli which could have been developed was withheld through inaction.

Deputy Chief Constable Cross is a most capable and formidable detective, with extensive CID training recently retired after a distinguished career. She is widely admired in the British Police Service for her textbook investigation of the murder of Jenny Nicholl and her contribution to the development of forensic linguistics.  So what possible explanation can there be for her inexplicable omission of Peter Jaconelli from her report, the effect of which is to airbrush Peter Jaconelli and Jimmy Savile out of North Yorkshire Police history?

Why has Peter Jaconelli disappeared into the Operation Yewtree black hole?

The two critical failures of the British Police Service to arrest Savile both occurred in North Yorkshire. They are:

1.  The failure of North Yorkshire Police to arrest Jaconelli and Corrigan, which would surely have led them to Savile, (Britain’s most prolific paedophile and rapist).

2.  When asked for intelligence on Savile by Surrey Police in 2007, North Yorkshire Police Force Intelligence Bureau replied that it had none, although Jaconelli and Corrigan are alleged to have featured in a 2003 paedophile investigation conducted by North Yorkshire Police and entered into HOLMES. As a result, Surrey and Sussex Police did not have the intelligence from North Yorkshire necessary to assist in its investigation – and the best opportunity of bringing him to justice was lost.

It is widely alleged that North Yorkshire Police knew all about Jaconelli and that Police Officers covered up for him and allowed him to carry on offending, because he was a prominent local Councillo,r businessman and Mayor.  So if Deputy Chief Constable Cross were to admit that Jaconelli had been a paedophile, this would raise all sorts of questions as to why the Police had not arrested him. Clearly this would be a huge embarrassment to North Yorkshire Police.

Deputy Chief Constable Cross of the North Yorkshire Police started her career in Leeds with West Yorkshire Police, the two forces that Savile was most closely associated with – and which have suffered severe criticism over their collective failure to arrest him. Neither force has confirmed if Cross knew Savile there.

Chartered Accountants and indeed all investigators are taught that when conducting investigations they should develop as much evidence as possible, then consider all the evidence before coming to a conclusion.  However, this did not trouble Deputy Chief Constable Cross. She simply ignored the witness evidence provided by Real Whitby, wrongly stated that Jaconelli and Savile did not feature in any North Yorkshire Police intelligence, and used this as an excuse to exonerate North Yorkshire Police from any criticism.  In short, she appears to have conducted a cover up to save the face of North Yorkshire Police –  which if true, is a corrupt act.

NYP_&_WYP_ACC_Sue_Cross_rtd

As a result of the Cross Report, both the above key questions – arguably the two most important questions in the entire Savile investigation – remain completely and conveniently ignored, and the ability of Savile and Jaconelli to offend in Scarborough and Whitby for fifty years untroubled by the local Police remains completely unexplained. Until North Yorkshire Police answer these questions, Operation Yewtree has no credibility.

North Yorkshire Police ordered to re-open its investigation

So concerned was I at the blatantly inadequate nature of Deputy Chief Constable Cross’s detective work that I raised my concerns with HM Inspector of Constabulary Dru Sharpling CBE.  On the 14th of February 2014, she responded to me confirming that she had caused North Yorkshire Police to make further enquiries.

HMIC_Dru_SHARPLING_CBE

The effect of this announcement by HM Inspector Sharpling is that North Yorkshire Police has been forced to re-open its Operation Yewtree investigation into Savile and his associates in Scarborough. The same day, North Yorkshire Police issued the following statement:

Historic allegations made on Inside Out – statement”

Further to the historic allegations made against the late Peter Jaconelli, a former Mayor of Scarborough, on BBC1′s Inside Out (North East and Cumbria), 7.30pm, 10 February 2014: North Yorkshire Police is considering the content of the programme, its effect on previous matters and the potential need for any future investigative work that would best serve the interests of those directly affected.  In so doing, North Yorkshire Police would encourage those individuals who took part in the programme, who were the subject of direct contact with the late Mr Jaconelli, to get in touch as soon as possible in order that their allegations and wishes are fully and properly considered.  Please call North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 1, ask for the Force Control Room and state it is for the attention of Detective Superintendent Steve Smith.  Alternatively, contact can be made or information reported via email:

Steve.Smith753@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk

North Yorkshire Police have been ridiculed on the BBC and forced, by Real Whitby, to re-open a major investigation . The former Deputy Chief Constable has been accused publicly of incompetence on the BBC and despite the availability of trained detectives, forensic scientists, powers of arrest, access to the media, extensive Police intelligence systems and the assistance of Scotland Yard, three amateurs have been shown to have conducted a far more credible and meticulous investigation than North Yorkshire Police.

This will have come as a major embarrassment for Chief Constable Dave Jones, who has consistently refused to respond to Real Whitby’s concerns, on the ridiculous and asinine basis that this is not in the interests of “the efficient and effective use of publicly funded resources”. Well neither is ignoring the evidence unearthed by journalists, being caught out in a cover-up and then being compelled to re-open a major investigation at huge cost to the taxpayers of North Yorkshire.

CC.D.JONES_failure

The BBC and the intervention of HM Inspector Sharpling has vindicated the concerns raised by Real Whitby about North Yorkshire Police. It has also vindicated the concerns expressed about North Yorkshire Police in parliament by Lord Maginnis of Drumglass concerning the case of Mrs Barbara Hofschröer, in which Deputy Chief Constable Cross also featured.

The policy of ignoring evidence from Real Whitby continues

Detective Superintendent Steve Smith has only appealed for information relating to the five witnesses interviewed by the BBC and has made no attempt to interview Real Whitby, or any of the many other witnesses we have developed. We did not make all of the information we have available to the BBC, because the primary focus of the programme was Jaconelli, so this is another major and continuing failure in the North Yorkshire Police Operation Yewtree investigation which will again allow witness evidence to be ignored.

Our investigation has revealed that there was a paedophile-ring operating in Scarborough from about 1960 onwards. Using Operation Yewtree terminology, it consisted of:

Strand 1.  Savile:  Known to have committed eight offences in North Yorkshire, but we believe committed many more.

Strand 2.  Associates of Savile:  Jaconelli and Jimmy Corrigan (both deceased) and three other persons, two of whom may have acted as procurers.

Strand 3.  Persons unconnected with Savile: One other person who is now dead.

Real Whitby is still developing further witness evidence.

This is the second major paedophile investigation I have participated in. The first led to the arrest and indefinite detention of a paedophile and the break-up of the ring associated with him. On that occasion, a very fine Police Officer whom I greatly admire – Chief Constable SE Bailey QPM – wrote to me and thanked me for the assistance I had given to his force. In this case, by acting in cooperation with local people, my colleagues and I have produced a stream of witnesses that can assist the Operation Yewtree investigation. The response of North Yorkshire Police was that Deputy Chief Constable Tim Madgwick wrote to me threatening to arrest me if I continued to comment on North Yorkshire Police operations.

DCC.T.MADGWICK

Following the acquittal of William Roache and Dave Lee Travis, the wider concern around the conduct of Operation Yewtree must be that whilst the Police will go after high-profile celebrities to excuse their failure to arrest Savile and Jaconelli, they will not prosecute fellow Police Officers that were responsible for letting them escape justice. Nor will the Police take action against Officers like Deputy Chief Constable Cross who conceal Police misconduct.

It remains a concern that the policy of protecting high profile politicians like Jaconelli still continues – witness the attempt to arrest me for harassment by Detective Superintendent Heather Pearson, because Real Whitby had shown that the then Chair of the North Yorkshire Police Authority, Councillor Jane Kenyon, was the Chief Financial Officer of a bankrupt company, which she had not declared in her Register of Interests – a criminal offence under the Localism Act.

PENNINGTONS_LETTER

The threats to arrest me for expressing opinions and comments on North Yorkshire Police (such as the ones I have expressed here and on the BBC) and the demands that I remove all of my articles on North Yorkshire Police from Real Whitby internet site are classic examples of a force that is culturally unable to accept criticism – even when accurate and in the public interest – and will abuse Police powers to prevent it.

Heather_Pearson

Under these circumstances, in my opinion only a full independent judicial enquiry will get anywhere near to establishing how Peter Jaconelli and Jimmy Savile were able to offend for so long without being arrested by North Yorkshire Police.

Coming Next:  The onslaught

In my next article, I will be revealing the full story of the campaign of harassment that has been unleashed upon Real Whitby, which was only partially covered by the BBC.

    The full quote is as follows:

    “The Hofschroer case has been on my desk for several years now. A widow in her 80s was dispossessed of her home in a way that implies collusion between certain family members and the Social Services. A son who has come to the rescue has been harried by the North Yorkshire police (that particularly dubious constabulary merits careful investigation) to the extent that he and his aged mother have been pursued through an Interpol warrant to their “refuge” in Austria.”

      Does it make a significant difference in meaning? I’ve read the original quote in the report, looked at the misquote up on the site, imagined the correct wording there, and I honestly can’t see a substantial difference in meaning. Other than pedantry, did you have a point?

      I am sorry to say that I remain convinced that a central issue of the Scarborough aspect of Operation Yewtree is that there are consistent allegations of corruption within North Yorkshire Police in respect of their response to Jaconelli and Savile. I am satisfied that North Yorkshire Police will not investigate the allegations concerning Savile, Jaconeli and the response of Scarborough Police impartially and that referring the investigation to North Yorkshire Police means that the integrity of this aspect of Operation Yewtree has been completely compromised.

      NYP will not investigate this impartially and only an independent investigation will get to the bottom of things.

            Great work Tim, though I have my doubts about a JUDICIAL Inquiry. The Judicial Mafia & Bent Coppers protect each other. What it needs is lots of each behind bars, for a long time, ‘pour encouragez le autres’. Pessimistically, I fear we are some time away from that. Optimistically, with the work you are doing, if the fortress walls begin to crack, they MIGHT collapse quickly.

              Thank you for your comments.

              In my view, you have to start from the basis that there are good people out there and that they will ignore bureaucratic intransigence and intervene. If you believe that all of the judiciary, police, politicians, civil service etc. are bent, then there is no point in raising any issue in the media and you must either start a revolution or give up and go home.

                Tim,
                You say, “… you have to start from the basis that there are good people out there …”.
                My thinking is slightly different: I feel there is good & bad in ALL of us – me included! The difference is, good people try to suppress the bad within them. Bad people glory in it.
                You then say, “If you believe that all of the judiciary, police, politicians, civil service etc. are bent, then there is no point in raising any issue in the media and you must either start a revolution or give up and go home.”
                I borrow from Martin Luther King, “I fear not the words of the wicked, but I DO fear the silence of the honest”.
                Assuming there are ‘good judiciary, police, politicians, civil service etc.': It is their silence (from fear, or loyalty or whatever) which allows the country to be in the state it is.
                When such evil is abroad, those who know & are silent are as culpable as the actively wicked.
                You mention ‘The Media’. Around 1905, the then Lord Northcliffe said, “The Power of The Press is great, but the Power of Suppression is much greater”. There may well be reporters, & even editors, who would like to publish the WHOLE truth, but they are under the thumbs of the Press Barons & Media Moguls. They like things the way they are, & are as essential a part of THIS Police State as Josef Goebells ever was in Nazi Germany.
                ‘Start a revolution’? For some time I have felt the only hope would be for more of the troops to realise how they have been conned, & impose Martial Law, taking over Parliament, the courts, radio & TV. Yes, I know ‘The cure can be worse than the disease’, but it doesn’t have to be. It would take comparatively few men, it could, & should be bloodless. It could even be done, quite legitimately, ‘In the name of the Queen’.
                Short of that, well, it is up to you & I to keep plugging away. Our efforts MIGHT have some effect, even if not in our lifetimes.
                Best wishes.
                NIL ILLEGITIMII CARBURUNDUM!

    There is no evidence against these people. There is nobody alive to answer the “allegations”. So therefore, a waste of taxpayers money it is. Do not blame the officers for the alleged misgivings or difficulties of yesteryear. Concentrate your efforts on today, the present, and the future

    This appears to be a very thorough bit of investigative journalism in the public interest. Well done. I have a similar story where lots of money has been defrauded from a very large National Governing Body and Yorkshire represented sports organisation. Much of the money came via the Exchequer so any theft, as apparently been admitted, is therefore in the public interest. To my knowledge the person who misappropriated the money, has not been charged by the police. I think a cover up here too is taking place and I think it in the public interest that this is fully and transparently investigated. I wonder if you would advise me on what are the right questions that I should ask of the right people?

    It took 25 years for most of the facts about the Hillsborough disaster to come out despite the continued efforts of the West Yorkshire Police and others to prevent this from happening. We now see the the same pattern of behaviour repeating itself in the Yewtree investigation. It is clear that the police in North Yorkshire are involved in a widespread cover-up to prevent the facts emerging about police collusion in preventing the prosecution of paedophiles. That the police then misuse their powers to prevent third parties from exposing this corruption only goed to show the moral and professional bankruptcy that exists in the higher echelons of North Yorkshire Police. All those involved should be immediately suspended pending investigation and if found complicit dismissed with loss of pension and prosecuted where appropriate.

    Robyne Maria It is indeed a shocking and very alarming read! Not to mention a highly disturbing article. As one of Saville’s victims, watching the news regarding all of this, seeing in the revealing how compromised the Police investigation is. I wonder if it is time to take the lead and go to European Courts! Having suffered quite long enough from being a part of this vile and dirty secret which the people occupying the higher echelon seem all to willing to allow to remain a hidden secret, I do not want further generations of children to suffer because we, this generation, were unable to really challenge this prevalent abuse, it is not acceptable, paedophilia is not a life style choice, like choosing a career, we do not offer up ourselves or our children or grandchildren for the predilictation of perverts, not ever.
    Perhaps now it is time for a European Court to take the lead in investigating North Yorkshire Police, bringing those who aided and abetted to justice, and those who were perhaps complicit in some rape cases, for they are criminals too, criminals, complicit in the abuse, get them to trial. Just how many Police Officers participated in abuse? Or turned a blind eye to victims coming forwards, labelling the victims mad, liars, discrediting decent honest vulnerable citizens to hide their diseased practices, allowing abusers to remain hidden in our communities? Who in the North Yorkshire Police Force have commited heinous crimes themselves?
    And in no respect should this Government be allowed to get away with pseudo trials, such as the recent trails of Dave Lee Travis and William Roache. Nor should these two cases in any way, be seen as comparable to the actions of Saville and Jaconeli. Dave Lee Travis and William Roache, who have recently come to trial, were charged with sexual advances, not serial sexual abuse of Britain’s vulnerable youth. The offences of Dave Lee Travis and William Roache, although proven harmless fun, are somehow being used by those in the press and civil service who influence the press, to suggest Saville’s crimes were nothing, he would have been let off because we were all star struck groupies out for rape!!! The recent coverage has been an alarming attempt at ridiculing us, Saville’s victims and it is deplorable that such low tactics, thought up in some mind, has even been allowed to be played out in the press, especially as innocent until proven guilty was ignored and the amount of press given to these two stars of TV and radio, used as evidence of silly girls seeking sex from stars, sickening and depraved thinking from those desperate to keep the truths about Savile and Jaconeli and Jonathon King! Those who seek a continued cover up. Just look at Rennard, he is being whisked away from the mountain of evidence because he has £”clout”£.

      1. The Police force that is responsible for policing Hull is Humberside Police, NOT North Yorkshire Police.

      2. Detective Superintendent Ray Galloway has never served in Humberside Police. Nor has he ever served in Hull, nor was he responsible for policing of Hull.

        4. There is no evidence to link him or any other police officer to any international paedophile gang trafficking children through Hull.

          You posted a complete fabrication and falsehood that Detective Superintendent Ray Galloway was the senior officer of North Yorkshire Police in charge of the port of Hull. I pointed out that:

          1. The Police force that is responsible for policing Hull is Humberside Police, NOT North Yorkshire Police.

          2. Detective Superintendent Ray Galloway has never served in Humberside Police. Nor has he ever served in Hull, nor was he responsible for policing of Hull.

          You then published another complete falsehood and fabrication that because Detective Superintendent Galloway had served as a senior officer in charge of North Yorkshire Police Special Branch he was responsible for all the ports in the country and as such, he was an ideal link-man for the international paedophile gang, which Bill Maloney is investigating. I pointed out that:

          3. At no time did Detective Superintendent Galloway have any responsibility for any policing outside of North Yorkshire. This includes the Port of Hull, which is the responsibility of Humberside Police Marine Section.

          4. There is no evidence to link him or any other police officer to any international paedophile gang trafficking children through Hull.

          Concerning your question how do I know there is no evidence to link Detective Superintendent Galloway, to an international paedophile gang trafficking children through the Port of Hull, I would respond that:

          1. Neither yourself or any other person has ever provided any evidence to link Detective Superintendent Galloway with any alleged offences of trafficking through Hull.

          2. The Police force that is responsible for policing Hull is Humberside Police, NOT North Yorkshire Police.

          3. Detective Superintendent Ray Galloway has never served in Humberside Police. Nor has he ever served in Hull, nor was he responsible for any part of the policing of Hull.

          Therefore it is impossible for your allegation to be correct or even credible.

            You posted a an allegation that that Detective Superintendent Ray Galloway was the senior officer of North Yorkshire Police in charge of the port of Hull. You could produce no evidence to support this, it is factually incorrect and at best it appears to have been published neither knowing nor caring if it was true or not.

            You then published another complete falsehood and fabrication that because Detective Superintendent Galloway had served as a senior officer in charge of North Yorkshire Police Special Branch he was responsible for all the ports in the country and as such, he was an ideal link-man for the international paedophile gang, which Bill Maloney is investigating. Which is ridiculous. To return to fact:

            1. Neither yourself or any other person has ever provided any evidence to link Detective Superintendent Galloway with any alleged offences of trafficking through Hull.

            2. The Police force that is responsible for policing Hull is Humberside Police, NOT North Yorkshire Police.

            3. Detective Superintendent Ray Galloway has never served in Humberside Police. Nor has he ever served in Hull, nor was he responsible for any part of the policing of Hull.

            4. There is no evidence of an international paedophile ring trafficking children through Hull.

            Stop wasting everyone’s time.

    Thank you, excellent work ;)

    Isn’t it alarming how this doesn’t amaze or come as a shock?

    The majority wants their children’s childhoods protected, instead the police and justice system continues to set the paedos free so they can ruin more innocent children. We are not far from a system where parents join their forces to keep their children protected.

    Since paedos aren’t excluded from the society we have to form our own society where paedos are excluded. Their morality is so low that it will be the end of the world if their morality has to be accepted.

    Yewtree rather shields and protects important people who walk around creating destruction, fully aware that the amount of emotionally destroyed people rise high.

    Then again they are the ones who have to provide life-long support and help to those who they willingly let be destroyed.

    Disgusting!!!

    May be something may be nothing but this chap is now head of police Scotland. Data from their website.

    Sir Stephen House QPM

    Sir Stephen House joined Sussex Police in 1981. Between 1981 and 1988 he served in uniform operational posts in that force and also on transfer in Northamptonshire Police and West Yorkshire Police.

    In 1998, he joined Staffordshire Police as an Assistant Chief Constable. He led initially in Territorial Policing and latterly in Crime and Operations.

    Very interesting – the sinister implication of a NY police cover up would appear to rest on that old underworld adage – “don’t grass up your mates.” I grew up in Scarborough in the 60s and 70s. Peter Jaconelli was appointed Town Mayor several times during that period. He was well known to be a homosexual with a taste for boys – a pederast in other words. This was decades before *paedophilia* was an acknowledged crime. My best friend at school went to work at Jaconelli’s ice cream restaurant on the Foreshore. He did not last the afternoon. He quit in disgust because of the constant harassment – Jaconelli just kept pinching his bum. He would have been about 15 at that time – circa 1970. He said that the other lads who worked there put up with it in order to receive bribes and treats. Jaconelli was an odious, obese man who once featured in the Guinness Book of Records as the World Champion for eating the most oysters within a certain time frame. Jimmy Corrigan was the owner of Corrigans amusements – the tacky arcades that continue to coin it in from the stupid punters – this town has been retarded for decades because of the controlling interests of corrupt plutocrats like Corrigan and Jaconelli. The police would appear to be defending the agenda of a “privileged class” rather than the public interest. As evidence I would refer not only to the Hillsborough cover-up but also to the police orchestration of the so-called “Poll Tax Riots” as well as the fact that several Metropolitan officers were found guilty of marketing millions of child porn images in the early noughties. If the contention that exposure to hardcore pornography can deprave and corrupt – then there is no doubt that the police force is rife with corruption.

      Dar David,

      Thanks for your comment.

      You are one of a number of people that have come forward following the BBC programme, making further allegations about Jaconelli and Corrigan.

      Best regards,

    A German member of parliament wiped his hard disc clean of naked pictures of children after a tip off from his buddy, the Minister for Home Security.

    Merkel has forced the Minister to resign, but the paedo remains free to insist the pictures were not illegal, and that he did nothing wrong.

    Spiegel online.de has front page news on the Edathy/Friedrich affair.

    There is an English language edition of this magazine, but what a surprise, no mention yet of the scandal!

    Note too the deflection involved. The debate is misdirected to the internet websites that generate collections of pictures of nude kids. Problem, reaction, solution. More calls for powers to shut down websites – websites like this one too, perhaps? Websites that ‘the powers that be’ do not like…

    Sorry if this is off topic, just wanted to add my voice of support for the terrific and dogged job you are doing. The Savile thread on David Icke’s Today’s News Forum is being read in Europe, and that is where we saw the links to Real Whitby.

    The NAME of their game!

    Great article Tim, thanks.

    The Yew tree and the Elm tree are the names also given to the 2 pillars of Freemasonary apart from Jachin and Boaz as they are commonly called.

    What is in a name? It sends a message to all other brethern that they are being protected by their own!

    I watch for these signals that these insiders try and keep hidden under what appears to be innocent names. Just check a few “enquiry” titles for their hidden meanings.

    It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words, yes, so a symbol is worth a thousand pictures to those who know their hidden meanings!

    Paul Sanderson, talk about hijacking and trolling a thread, as one of those Saville abuse victims, I have a great deal more to bitch about and a lot more to genuinely rant about than your meaningless hijacking of this thread, which should have comments pertaining to decades of child rape, abuse and those responsible for the protection of those committing these heinous crimes. I suggest you try and get things into perspective, failing that are we assume your presence here is to merely detract in suitable troll like fashion from the main subject of debate. Thank you.

    Could we please have an end to the spat between Paul Sanderson & Tim Hicks. PS inadvertently made a false statement. TH corrected him. PS apologised for the false statement & thanked TH for the correction. One might hope that would be the end of that particular squabble.
    However, I must respectfully comment on PS’s statement where he says:
    “For the sake of clarity, I should point out that in the country I am currently resident, defamation is a criminal offence.”
    In the country I FOUGHT FOR 70 years ago, Defamation was a CIVIL matter. Now, most twisted means are being used to bring it into the criminal courts, which is a serious mis-use of the law!

      Dear Norman,

      Thanks for your comment. We simply can’t have comments published on Real Whitby which are defamatory and not based on any evidence.

      Paul posted a an allegation that that Detective Superintendent Ray Galloway was the senior officer of North Yorkshire Police in charge of the port of Hull and implying that it had been used for trafficking of children. He could produce no evidence to support this.

      He then published another allegation that Detective Superintendent Galloway was responsible for all the ports in the area and as such, he was an ideal link-man for an international paedophile gang, again without being able to produce any evidence to support this.

      Under these circumstances we had no choice but to rebut his comments each time he made them.

      Best regards,

      Tim

    Not going to bullshit you – This piece is so long I have not had time to read it all…

    But any attempt to have you shut down or remove what is essentially an “Opinion piece” is a disgrace!

    Total Bloody Disgrace!

    I dare say I may find points I disagree with, and I will voice my opinion if there is – But I shall do so with respect.

    Keep going my friend… Promoting debate is good. Even if what you say is not 100% correct, It will be interesting to read – And if there are mistakes, I hope you will have the good grace to accept them and say so…

    My view, until I have read all… And even after… Keep going! We are supposed to encourage freedom of speech… So you keep at it!

    RESPECT MY FRIEND!
