UK Establishment Closes Ranks as Organised Child Sex Abuse Network Leads Back to No. 10

EG7 (Former Home Secretary Leon Brittan alleged as ‘Tory Ex Minister’ in recent coverage)

For decades, vulnerable children from care homes and other institutions were booked to order by rich and powerful men, for sex.  This is the allegation put forward in ‘Nightmares at Elm Guest House’, in an interview with Chris Fay of the National Association for Young People in Care.  As another significant member of the Conservative party is about to be outed this weekend, we take a closer look at these allegations and ask: how much longer can the UK establishment keep this story suppressed?

Child Sex Abuse and the UK Establishment


In 1974, a group of child sex abusers launched the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE).  This group was legal at the time, and sought to promote the rights of ‘paedophiles’.  The group espoused the view that children had the right to indulge in their sexual feelings with adults, and argued the age of consent should be lowered to four years old, or abolished altogether.

This was not some fringe group, hidden away.  They had thousands of members, many from senior positions in the media, the security services, politics and other establishment positions.

The members were public and built affiliations with the Gay Liberation Front, the Campaign for Homosexual Equality, mental health charity Mind, and even human rights organisation Liberty (previously named The National Council for Civil Liberties).  The leaders of PIE shared platforms with Harriet Harman, Patricia Hewitt, and others.

PIE members had been using the ‘Contact’ page of their magazine The Magpie, to connect and network with each other.  They also used it to introduce consumers of child pornography to suppliers.  In 1978, the homes of PIE members were raided and they faced charges of conspiracy against public morality.  One person however, was not tried.  He was referred to as “Mr Henderson” until the Private Eye outed him as Sir Peter Hayman, a senior diplomat and former British High Commissioner to Canada.  While other PIE members who indulged in the same activity as Hayman were sent for trial at the Old Bailey, Hayman was sent home by the Attorney General and carried on regardless.

PIE was dissolved in 1984, but not before it had allowed for the creation of a powerful network of paedophiles within the most senior ranks of the UK establishment.

In the documentary Nightmares at Elm Guest House, former National Adult Advisor of the National Association for Young People in Care (NAYPIC) Chris Fay, attests that this paedophile ring was widely known, but that the membership of such senior figures had a double lock effect.  Firstly, the members were in positions of such seniority that they had the political and financial power to keep stories suppressed, close down police investigations and keep members out of jail.  Secondly, the members were such significant establishment faces that the potential impact of their exposure incentivised those around them who knew to keep quiet.

The Elm Guest House


The Elm Guest House was a B&B in Barnes, West London, run by Harood and Carol Kasir.  The guest house pitched itself as gay-friendly, but such a description does a great dis-service to the gay community.  On or around the Queen’s Silver Jubilee in 1977, it began to host ‘Kings and Queens’ parties for paedophiles, whereby members of PIE and another group promoting the sexual abuse of children, The Spartacus Club, could fulfil their desires.

It is alleged that from 1977 onward, rich and powerful men were provided with a menu of children’s photographs and school reports, by members of Richmond Social Services.  Once chosen, the child would be sourced from their children’s home (most commonly Grafton Close, just 8 miles away), and taken to Elm Guest House.  On arrival, the children would be drugged and abused, sometimes on camera in the ‘video facilities room’, sometimes in the sauna, sometimes at sex parties in a back room.

EG8Carol Kasir claimed to have kept names from the guest register of Elm Guest House, pictured above, which include major establishment figures. The full list is below:

  • Anthony Blunt, Royal Connections, MI5, traitor, Russian spy deceased.
  • Harvey Proctor, Monday Club, well known convicted paedophile.
  • Sir Peter Bottomley. Worthing MP and Monday Club
  • Charles Irving
  • Leon Britton, Lord, ex Thatcher Minister (likely the Tory ex minister referred to anonymously in recent newpaper reports)
  • Peter Brooke, Life Peer
  • John Rowe, MI5, former MP
  • Cyril Smith, deceased, ex Rochdale MP
  • Ron Brown
  • Colin Jordan, ex National Front Leader
  • George Tremlett, Former GLC Leader
  • Peter Campbell, Monday Club
  • Gary Walker, Sinn Fein
  • Cliff Richard,aged  Pop Star, known at Elm Guest House as ‘Kitty’
  • Jess Conrad, aged ex Pop Star.
  • Ron Wells, aged Musician, aka ‘Gladys’ at Elm Guest House.
  • Richard Miles, Monday Club
  • Chris Denning, ex BBC DJ, convicted paedophile.
  • R Langley, Buckingham Palace Equerry
  • Terry Dwyer
  • Patrick Puddles
  • Louis Minster, Head of Richmond Social Services
  • Colin Peters, QC – a convicted paedophile sentenced to 8 years in 1989
  • Steve Everett, Senior Westminster Social worker
  • Ray Wire, so called expert on Paedophile therapy
  • Peter Glencross, editor of Monday Club newsletter
  • Guy Hamilton Blackwell, son of Westland Helicopters Chairman

The plight of one particular boy illustrates the horrific nature of this network of abuse.

EG3Peter Hatton-Bornshin (pictured) and his brother David were put into care after their mother committed suicide in the 1970’s.  They were 12 and 13.  One day, they were told by senior workers at Grafton Close Children’s Home that they were going ‘a treat’.  Their treat was a visit to Elm Guest House.

Peter, his brother and other boys were made to dress up as fairies, encouraged to become drunk, and invited to play a game of hide and seek.  The boys were told to hide, and when caught by the adult men, would be sexually abused by their captor.  Some of the men who raped, tortured and sexually abused Peter and David have been named as Liberal MP Cyril Smith, Catholic Priest Father Tony McSweeney (who officiated at the wedding of Frank Bruno), and Deputy Manager of Grafton Close Children’s Home John Stingemore (who also supplied the boys).

Peter never got over the abuse he received at the hands of these men.  He later complained about his treatment and received compensation from Richmond Council, while the story remained suppressed.  He fell into poor mental health, and was treated at Broadmoor.  In 1994, just days after his 28th birthday, he killed himself with a fatal drug overdose.  His suicide note included the words “I will get those bastards.”

The Elm Guest House was raided in 1982.  Police found five pornographic videos of children, evidence of the Kasir’s neglect of their son Eric, and other vice charges.  Over the next year, all charges related to the Elm Guest House were dropped and only the Kasirs faced charges of running a brothel, for which they received a suspended sentence.  The Elm Guest House closed shortly thereafter.

In 1990, with her husband dead and son Eric removed from her custody, it is alleged that Carole Kasir invited NAYPIC’s Chris Fay to view the contents of a box, which he claims contained a photograph of Leon Brittan (while he was a minister of government) dressed as a nurse, with a naked 14 year old boy on his lap.  Kasir had many other pictures of senior members of the UK establishment at the ‘Kings and Queens’ parties.  Kasir refused to give Fay the box, but agreed for him to return a few days later and take photograph the items.  Kasir was found dead on 17th June 1990, aged 47, before this meeting could take place.

It was claimed she killed herself with an insulin overdose.  Chris Fay and his colleague Mary Moss believe she was murdered.  They argue:

  • the last injection found on her body was 72 hours old, and it is unheard of for a person to receive an insulin overdose and live for 72 hours.
  • The syringe mark was also on her posterior, when she normally injected into the arm.
  • The only person to corroborate Kasir’s handwriting in the suicide note, was David Issit (a known paedophile with links to PIE and the Spartacus Club).
  • Kasir had received threatening phone call and intimidation from the police prior to her death

The Open Secret of a Generation


(one example of earlier efforts to expose the network)

Even if not complicit, the child sexual abuse ring around Elm Guest House, Grafton Close and the UK establishment must have breathed a collective sigh of relief at Kasir’s death.

They had survived the police raid on PIE in 1978, which took out non-establishment members of PIE but left the wider network and establishment figures untouched.

Conservative MP Geoffrey Dickens repeatedly raised the issue of a London based network of sexual abusers of children between 1981 and 1985.  Dickens believed he had uncovered an establishment network with what he described as ‘big, big names’.  He held a 30 minute meeting with the Home Secretary in 1984, handing over a dossier of his evidence.  The meeting is captured in both Hansard and the media at the time, with Dickens describing himself as ‘encouraged’ following the meeting.  The Home Secretary of the day however, was none other than Leon Brittan – himself named as a frequenter of Elm Guest House on the registers in Kasir’s possession.  The dossier never surfaced, no action was taken, Brittan claims no recollection of this publicly recorded meeting, and the Home Office say they have found no trace of the dossier.

With both Carol and Harood Kasir dead, the Elm Guest House closed, and PIE disbanded – only the children and their alleged abusers remained to tell the story.  It seemed the establishment had won and the secrets would die with those who held them.

Key figures from the period were also starting to reach the natural end of their lives before the truth of the network could be uncovered.  MI5 and Special branch helped maintain the cover of Cyril Smith until his death in 2010.  Jimmy Savile had also been protected from prosecution for rampant rape and sexual abuse of children, from when rumours first began circulating in 1964, to his death in 2011, which meant another key name and holder of secrets had left the scene.  But immediately after his death (a sign of how open his secret must have been), BBC Newsnight began an investigation into the allegations….and the whole network began to blow up, by tracing Savile’s movements and interactions.

The latest series of press interest and police investigations was triggered by Labour MP Tom Watson, who timed judiciously a question to PM David Cameron at the height of the furore over Jimmy Savile.  Tom Watson requested a full investigation of allegations of a “powerful paedophile network linked to Parliament and No 10” at Prime Minister’s Questions on 24th October 2012.

The Metropolitan Police launched Operation Fairbank shortly thereafter, and repeatedly denied such an investigation was underway when challenged by interested parties.  Since that time, Operation Fernbridge has undertaken to investigate and prosecute those associated with Elm Guest House.

The actions of Tom Watson MP have helped raise awareness, while NAYPIC’s Chris Fay and Mary Moss, reporters at ExaroNews and film makers such as Bill Maloney have investigated over decades and provided the necessary evidence to maintain the case in the face of overwhelming pressure to suppress it.

It’s Time to End the Networks


(Grafton Close Children’s Home celebrate the Royal Wedding in 1981, with alleged child supplier Neil Kier on BBQ duty)

I have long left this subject to others to write about.  I had a sense that I should remain quiet on the matter until the legal process had concluded.  I changed my mind after watching Nightmares at Elm Guest House and reviewing the litany of prior police investigations, court cases and media scandals on the matter.  It appears that however close it has seemed, justice has failed to be done for many decades.  The establishment has circled the wagons each time, sacrificed a pawn or two to sate the appetites of public and press, then carried on business as usual.

When one looks closer, we are facing the unfolding nightmare that politicians, pop stars and media figures have been supplied vulnerable children to rape and abuse, by members of the social services, over decades.  It is beginning to appear quite certain, that a significant number of children’s homes and institutions for young people, have been complicit in abuse on an industrial scale.  It is also apparent that a persistent cover up has meant people have been silenced, threatened and perhaps even killed to maintain the silence, and the networks of abuse.  The list is growing:

These are but a few of the scandals to emerge in recent years.  The reason for us all to pay attention and for independent journalists and parties to maintain the pressure on this story – is simple.  It is likely that the networks and foul individuals involved have been allowed to fester, largely unchallenged, by the institutions intended to hold them to account.  The police, parliament, the press – all compromised and capitulated.  When members of these institutions were brave enough to come forward, they faced the full force of the establishment.  So it’s on us to stand up and be counted, so that this time, justice is firmly and finally done – in honour of each of the children abused repeatedly by the so called great and good of the UK establishment.  We do not know the guilt of any of those suspected, but we must ensure claims are fully investigated and where guilt is found, appropriate consequences are delivered.

  2. UPDATE on Alan Harris,
    duty solicitor of Plymouth,
    accused of raping ( mainly ) male clients for 20 years.

    One target of his,
    who was subjected to a particularly vile blackmail,
    videoed a public confrontation with Alan Harris.

    It has taken him 12 or 15 years to get this far,
    and it takes real courage.

    Devon & Cornwall Police are corrupt,
    and are covering it up.

    I was run through a bent Pubic Order Act ‘trial’,
    where the two main witnesses were his secretaries,
    and no questions were allowed of them.

  4. Everyone should take their children back if they can. The child protection system does not protect children & the Government doesn’t care about protecting them either. The people in charge are an absolute disgrace & need to be removed from office. These people are breaking the law & allow it to be broken by others. The government is protecting child abusers & that must stop.

  7. re The Elm house handwritten list – any one could write out a list it means nothing. In the case of Cliff Richard is there any evidence at all that he was even in the same street as the Elm House place. If there was it would convince most people including myself. But nobody has produced anything. This is just conspiracy fantasy.

    • I was at a war veterans hospital in llandudno in 1999 with my then husband. One of the guests told us cliff richard was convicted of molesting kids before he turned 16 in his home town. I asked why has this had not come out. He told me cliff richard had paid off someone to erase any trace of his records. I believed the ex soldier as he mentioned kids he knew that richards sexually abused. I have wanted to hear that richards would get caught one day. The holier than though religious convert who was a child pervert. I would love to see a journalist find this info as it would crack into everyones psyche that you dont know anyone really.

  8. Sadly, pedophilia is off the charts now, globally.

    Western military run major networks. and of course, the churches…… All kept ‘secure’ by an equally filthy worldwide police network.

    A terrible example of how humanity, has fallen.

    ‘Power corrupts… Absolute power, corrupts absolutely.’ NO doubt about that.

    Ed Snowden, Chelsea Manning, and Julian Assange, might be the type the world needs to get stuck into revealing these types of sorry people and their networks.

    What is true, is that a huge number of people do know this goes on, and do know names and addresses, and events enough to bring down the ‘establishment’ with a thudddd.

    With all this type of ‘leaked’ information, once the trickle begins, it does grow and usually turns into something of a flood of exposures.

    We are not the same demure cowering people we were, even just a decade or two ago.

    And more of humanity is aware of the underlying filth of all upper echelons of power. More too, are finding they do have a conscience, enough to change their previously – blind-eye’ to such crimes, to being prepared to voice and act publicly, on their concerns and disgust.

    I don’t think the majority will stand for the heavy hands of the establishment much more, nor their ‘evil eye’ being cast down on us.

    If the MSM are prepared to print and air these major exposures, it will become the snowball against the comfy-fanny establishment soon enough.

    Time the majority turned their shying disgust into directed anger.

    • I suggest the culture that existed in the past was suitable endowed with a sympathy for paedophilia, when I was child it was normal to beat a child with a bamboo stick at school and home also at home I remember many beatings with a leather razor strap, it was institutionalized violence, the many abuses I had as a child from sexual deviants was numerous, it was on a scale that you could not talk to your parents as they were also vindictive and likely to persecute you for being a victim, now if at school or at home you received this type of violence, those involved would be charged, and likely the parents would be found to to be unsuitable as parents.
      In defense of these people, I suggest many were all part of the victims of WW2, and also they looked at children as economic useful assets, the emergence from the Victorian era, which was tainted or more so hypocritically predisposed to depravity and a dubious morality,. which all contributed to a warped mind that encouraged what we now see as debauched, the climate I am suggesting is far more complex than what I have stated, but gives a insight as why this was prevalent as a wide spread activity, that may be lost in the sands of history, I am not supporting these people, but explaining what I see as the forces that created a dark and insidious time, that by today’s standards of general morality are seen as a perversion that is non redeemable.

      • Yeah, I agree generally with your sentiment.
        For a while it’s been clear to me that most of how individuals act, is ‘cultural’, more than their own personality at play.
        As you write, WW2 left lots of victims, but what war doesn’t. They also leave opportunity for damaged minds to act out any and all manner of beliefs and desires, most awry ones based on effected and ‘fallen’ ways of seeing life.
        ‘Spare the rod, and spoil the child’ has merit, but fails when combined with dysfunctional mentalities, no matter what bred them.
        Again, it’s cultural, goes back millennia, and employing corporal punishment, esp., on kids, has it’s roots in a long lost culture. ‘Lost’ since, the allegorical, metaphorical, mythical ‘fall from Eden’ I say.
        So, with that in mind…, pedophilia part of a long lost culture, so too are most of our responses, +ve and -ve.
        ‘Perversion’ DOES have a root, and I maintain most is from errant social, cultural systems, which demand we do ridiculous things for the most rudimentary needs.
        Doesn’t say anything good at all for ‘free markets’ controlling people’s needs.
        Nor for those arrogantly/ignorantly riding the waves of [excessive] wealth and ‘success’.

  9. Harvey Proctor pleaded guilty to gross indecency with male prostitutes aged 17-21. This does not make him a convicted paedophile as I would understand it.

  10. Why not exposed,
    and run through the ‘justice’ system?

    Because the system is as bent as a nine bob note.

    Just like Jimmy Savile,
    Elm Guest House,
    and a nasty duty solicitor in Plymouth, Alan Harris,
    who for decades
    has been sex-blackmailing clients
    ( mainly boys and young men, but not exclusively )
    with the help and protection of Devon & Cornwall Police,
    who organise bent Magistrates Courts
    to criminalise those who stand up and speak out.

    I know people Alan Harris has raped,
    and the analogy is this:-

    ‘Justice’ is like a room,
    where the police are the door, the lock, and the key,
    and you can be outside in the street,
    and have solid evidence,
    but the police ‘brick-wall’ you.

    I exposed Alan Harris,
    and defending myself,
    was run through a bent court,
    where two carefully groomed witnesses
    ( both secretaries of Alan Harris )
    pretended they were ‘terrified’ of me,
    so that I was prevented from asking a single question of them.

    The bent Judge was David Parsons,
    who seized my documents BEFORE I entered the Court,
    and knew from a handwritten letter from a victim
    that he was ready to give evidence.

    The system is bent.

  11. This is appalling. Why doesn’t the UK do something about it?? Whatever happened to people power?? Get out in the streets and make them charge these disgusting pedophiles. What is wrong with Britain?? It should be splashed on the front page of every paper every day until they get these guys. Cliff Richard?? What a disgusting thought, I’m sure this is widely known so why do the public love him so much? Oh my God, so many people have such a lot to answer for. Leave children alone you scum. They should be all publicly humiliated and horsewhipped. I sincerely hope the media keep the pressure on. Poor children, it’s just terrible. I have seen so many names pop up that are known to the public, and they are getting away with it. The mind boggles it really does. The powers that be will make a point of getting some small fry like rolf Harris hoping that will shut people up (of course if guilty he needs to go down also )
    …get them all. Humiliate them, print their names on the front page.

    • Why don’t you try reading the article and watching the video, before you enter hysterics mode? No allegations have been made against Cliff Richard. His presence there was merely noted; and it WAS a guest house.

        • In reply to Tony Kelly;
          I’m not defending Cliff Richard; I’ve no time for the man. But if you paid attention to what was said in the video, you will have heard Chris Fay HIMSELF stressing the point- (unlike other names mentioned), there was NO EVIDENCE to link Richards with what was going on at that boarding house, other than the fact he had stayed there. And yes, I agree with you, it is pretty ludicrous a man of Richards means would choose to stay in such a place, but that proves absolutely nothing. Lot of people do ludicrous things; it doesn’t mean (or prove) they are a paedophile. Why do you think Chris Fay stressed the point? Do you need it spelling out? Try using your own “head,” instead of making puerile comments about mine. And while you’re at it, spare a thought for Scriptonite, who stuck her own head above the parapet, publishing the piece in the first place.

          • Although, Cliff Richards, may well be innocent of any wrong doings, usually many people would ether intuitively sense something was amiss, I am talking about the atmosphere or culture that exists in a house such as this, of course some people are as thick as a board, talking about boarding houses, their fore to be so thick you cannot get it, is no criminal offence, and from different perspectives of what reality seems to be to oneself is so different from how another sees it.

    • This is all very upsetting to me, I can hardly believe it, I´ve always liked this man, wtf all this is just monkey business against him?

  12. Uk sex offender database exposed this quite a few months ago, and have attempted to break this story for almost three years. Sadly it wasn’t picked up by the press for obvious reasons.
