Hi,

I am happy to offer my condolences to the children & grandchildren of Martin McGuinness who had no choice in whom their parents were.

That said: The world would have been a far better place without the birth of Martin McGuinness and vile and cowardly criminals like him. To seek to eulogise this vile man for his hand in a peace process that was instigated when he had failed in his aim to overturn democracy and impose his vile will, together with his vile asso0ciates, he chose to switch to claims of peace to avoid arrest and trial for numerous cowardly murders he had committed and instigated.

The peace process would never have been needed were it not for Martin McGuinness and his odious criminal ilk, as Ireland would have been a democratic and peacefull entity all along! There would never have been some 2,000 killings, the Police and Army would never have needed to impose a single curfew nor fire a single shot and harmony would have prevailed through the ballot box and democracy had it not been for the cowardly men of evil like Martin McGuinness.

KATIE HOPKINS: Good riddance, McGuinness. The reason you never said sorry for the dead was because you weren’t. You just realised you could win another way AND be treated like a saint 

I started reading about the rare condition that killed Martin McGuinness. I got about four words in. And then I realised.

I couldn’t care less. Couldn’t care less what he had, what impact it had on him or why it caused him to die.

I am just glad he is dead.

Glad he is gone and we no longer have the monster paraded about on our screens as the Second Coming of Christ. Lauded by our state broadcaster as the White Mandela. Fawned over by glib performers such as Blair, as a truly great statesman.

I’m not the least bit concerned if his death was painful or otherwise. He had the extraordinary blessing of a reasonably long life. And the gift of knowing he was going to die. He was able to set his affairs in order, to say thank you to the people who loved him, and to feel at peace with the life he was leaving behind.

His victims, those who died at the hands of his army, his bombs, and allegedly his own sub-machine gun — had no such opportunity.

Many never saw thirty. Never got to enjoy the long life he has enjoyed. Their relatives were handed life sentences of their own, too, having to deal with the devastation he wrought.

Joanne Mathers was just 29 when she was murdered by the IRA. Shot dead on the doorstep of her home for being part of the government census-gathering, which the IRA was campaigning against.

Almost 36 years later her husband said he was still haunted by the loss of his wife and the fact no one had been brought to justice.

‘People may well say he is a champion of peace, but Joanne was murdered when she was just 29 years old, and I was left to bring up a child of just a year-and-a-half by myself.

‘I had to navigate through all those milestones in his early years without her. Shane missed so much not having his mother. 

‘I would pick him up at school every day and would look out the car at all the mothers coming to pick their children up, greeting them at the end of the day. She wasn’t there to comfort him when he was sick and wasn’t there to run to when he was hurt.’

I'm not the least bit concerned if his death was painful or otherwise. He had the extraordinary blessing of a reasonably long life

It is this man I feel sorry for, this man and his son who deserve the sympathy of leaders today.

Or Lord Tebbit’s wife, permanently paralysed by the 1984 Brighton bombing, another casualty in McGuinness’s campaign of terror.

Or the ‘disappeared’, those who were abducted, murdered and secretly buried by the IRA, four of whom have never been found despite a commission set up to locate their remains. The families of these victims walk hand in hand with grief and injustice every day.

The list is endless. Kneecappings, bombings, shootings, sniper fire. Men, women and children. Particularly children: Mary Travers, 22; Kathleen Feeny, 14; Carol Ann McCool, 4; Kathryn Eakin, 9; Gordon Gallagher, 9 … it goes on and on. A mountain of dead. Murdered during the period in which the Butcher of Bogside was in command.

So no, Gerry Adams — you who also have blood on your hands — McGuinness did not work ‘tirelessly for peace and reconciliation’. If he had, the bodies of the disappeared would be back with those they loved.

Whatever side of the fight you take, Protestant or Catholic, I wonder what sort of man can watch the killing of children and feel no remorse

Whatever side of the fight you take, Protestant or Catholic, I wonder what sort of man can watch the killing of children and feel no remorse

And no, Blair, we do not remember him with ‘immense gratitude and immense affection’. Shane Mathers might have said the same of his mother — if he hadn’t been deprived of her his whole life by the monster you choose to mourn.

And no, Enda Kenny, Irish Taoiseach, the butcher will not ‘always be remembered for the remarkable political journey he undertook in his lifetime’.

He will be remembered for the lives he took. And we will forget him as quickly as we can.

I couldn't care less what he had, what impact it had on him or why it caused him to die

I couldn’t care less what he had, what impact it had on him or why it caused him to die

Unlike her public message of condolence for the family of Nelson Mandela, the Queen has shared a private message with the widow of Martin McGuinness, Bernie. After the death of Lord Mountbatten at the hands of the IRA, she truly understands the hurt he caused. And has acknowledged this with a private message of support for one woman. Not public affirmation of the hurtful life of one cruel man.

Martin McGuinness may have conned many of the Establishment with his written commitment to peace. But he was the author of much of the war. And we do not condone the sins of other war criminals with such enthusiasm.

Only last year, a 94 year old former Auschwitz guard was sentenced to five years in prison for his actions in camp. He stated he never killed or abused anyone, and was deeply ashamed. But survivors wanted him to say more, needed him to tell the truth for young people. To help people understand the horrors of the past so they can be healed.

It is a sentiment echoed by the families of the victims of McGuinness’ IRA today.

In contrast, justice never caught up with this monster. It canonized him instead.

Lord Tebbit speaks for many of us when he says; ‘the world is a sweeter place today. He was a coward who never atoned for his crimes’.

Whatever side of the fight you take, Protestant or Catholic, I wonder what sort of man can watch the killing of children and feel no remorse.

But, I can understand why Martin McGuinness never said sorry.

The simple truth is he never was. He was only sorry he was going to be caught, that he needed to find power another way.

McGuinness was a monster. Death does not redeem him. Nor return the young lives his terrorist bombs took away.

Martin McGuinness death: Tebbit says ‘world sweeter place’ – TUV chief says ‘he took dark secrets to grave’

March 21 2017

Lord Tebbit, whose wife was paralysed in the 1984 IRA Brighton bomb has said the “world is a sweeter place” now that Martin McGuinness has died.

Speaking on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, Lord Tebbit branded the veteran republican a “coward who never atoned for his crimes”.

 

The IRA targeted the Conservative party conference at the Grand Hotel in Brighton planting explosives in walls. The subsequent blast killed five people.

Norman Tebbit was in bed when the bomb went off, along with Lady Margaret Tebbit, who remains severely paralysed.

“He was a coward who knew that the IRA was defeated… the IRA army council had been penetrated by British intelligence and they were beaten,” he said.

“And he, coward as always, opted to try and get out of that by posing as a man of peace.

“He was a murderer, a multi-murderer. He became a man of peace because he was desperately afraid he was going to be arrested and charged with murders which he had committed himself.

“I’m just pleased that the world is a sweeter and cleaner place now,” he said.

He was asked if it could be possible someone like Mr McGuinness could leave his past behind.

“It might be possible, But first thing to take the step to for forgiveness would be to confess for his sins,” he added.

Jo Berry, whose father the MP Anthony Berry was killed in the 1984 bomb is founder of charity Building Bridges for Peace. In response to Lord Tebbit, she tweeted: “Tebbit not speaking for all, I value Martin McGuinness as inspiring example of peace and reconciliation.

“I lost my Dad in Brighton Bomb.”

Speaking on the BBC she added: “I admire Martin McGuinness for what he has done for peace in Northern Ireland. His friendship with Ian Paisley was real and in order to do that I think he showed incredible courage and his example of reconciliation influences everyone – he showed the way forward.”

TUV leader Jim Allister paid his condolences to the McGuinness family.

He said: “In the case of Martin McGuinness he lived many more decades than his victims because sadly he thought it appropriate not just to sanction, but to commit murder.

“And he took those dark secrets to the grave denying truth and justice to his many IRA victims.

“So today my primary thoughts are with the many victims of the IRA who never got to the age of 66, who never saw their grandchildren because McGuinness’s IRA snuffed out so many lives.

“Whatever became of Martin McGuinness, he chose to be a terrorist, no one made him be a terrorist and no one should be lauded because they turned to peace having been a terrorist.”

He added: “I will not be a party to white-washing the vile, vicious, wicked terrorism he brought to our streets.

“I then acknowledge that as a different phase, he was part of protecting those that brought that vile terrorism to our streets. He then tried a different tactic, namely that of what is called the the peace process and at a great price.

“I acknowledge that with his head he chose a path of peace, if it was with his heart would he not have given up those secrets and brought truth and justice to the victims of the IRA? That is where he will be judged.

“I have nothing kind to say of a person who carried out, presided over and directed the terrorism of the IRA, that gave us over 2,000 innocent victims.

“They brought needless terror to our streets. There was no need for anyone to die on the streets of Northern Ireland, but Martin McGuinness thought there should be.”

“So I am not going to be a hypocrite and sweep that under the carpet and say he took a different tact.

“I am not going to white wash the life of terrorist leader, IRA commander Martin McGuinness.”

IN MEMORIAM Col. Harry Beckhough born 08-Feb-1914 Died 15-Mar-2015 Aged 101

I was very honoured to have been able to count Harry Beckhough as a friend for a number of his later years, and even more honoured when he proclaimed me as a trusted frien before an audience in Marlborough Town Hall.

Harry very kindly, some years ago, agreed to attend a political meeting for two days for me at The Huntsman near Chepstow – too impart a prodigious flow of his experience and political knowledge and reminiscences. Harry’s contribution was invaluable.

After his visit to Chepstow we kept in touch for some years and I well remember that when he realised I was genuinly interested in social and political history he wrote me some 30 or 40 pages of his reminiscenses and experiences from his early years until he left Bristol, just prior to WWII.

Final farewell in Marlborough to wartime code breaker Harry Beckhough, 101

Anna Mauremootoo, Senior reporter for Marlborough and Pewsey / Saturday 11 April 2015 / 

Mourners gathered at St Mary’s Church in Marlborough this afternoon to say goodbye to centenarian and wartime code breaker Harry Beckhough.

Around 100 people gathered at the church for the service in tribute to the 101-year-old led by the Rev Dr David Maurice.

Mr Beckhough’s son-in-law James Munby read from Ecclesiates followed by a reading of Psalm 29 by his daughter, Jennifer Munby.

She then read a poem Not How Did He Die, But How Did He Live followed by a tribute from Mr Beckhough’s grandson, Thomas Munby.

He said: “When you’re asked to speak about someone like my grandfather where do you start?

“I tried to start by thinking what Harry would say, trouble is, I know exactly what Harry would say. He’d wander in, look around, smile at us all, he’d pull his innocent face and say ‘oh, has somebody died’?

“In my mind Harry Beckhough was an astonishing man. I loved him, I miss him and I’m very proud to call him my grandfather.”

Marlborough Mayor Marian-Hannaford Dobson spoke of Mr Beckhough’s 19 years in the town, moving in 1996 to be near his family. Mr Beckhough is thought to be the longest serving member of the Conservative party, joining it at the age of 15, and he continued his interest in the party all his life.

She said: “Harry used his desk in the Constituency office five days a week for the rest of his life.

“He regularly lectured at the Marlborough College summer school and also volunteered at Savernake Hospital once a week. Another of his pleasures was to work on the Marlborough Jubilee committee and centre.

“I count myself fortunate, and privileged, to have had Harry Beckhough as my friend.”

Mr Beckhough chose hymns Abide With Me; I Vow to Thee My Country; and He who would Valiant Be to be sung at the service.

Claire Perry, who up until the dissolution of parliament was the Conservative MP for the Devizes constituency that includes Marlborough, also paid tribute to Mr Beckhough. She said: “He was an amazing representative of all that my party stand for.

“He was so capable of seeing the big picture but also of seeing the small details.

“He was always there for a chat, he was always there for a counsel. I spoke to him just a few weeks ago and he said ‘I’m not doing so well but best of luck in the election, I’m proud of country and I’m proud of our government’.”

Mr Beckhough, who lived in Castle Court retirement apartments in River Park, died on March 15.

He grew up in Bristol attending Fairfield Grammar school and studying at Bristol University.

He was a Colonel in the Intelligence Corps and a code breaker at Bletchley Park during the Second World War.
Share article

He celebrated his 101st birthday twice, first on February 8, the day he was born, and on February 15, which is on his birth certificate because his father didn’t register him until a week after his birth.

After the service mourners went to a celebration of Mr Beckhough’s life at the ConservativeClub.

Hi,

Fukushima is still so contaminated that some areas will kill a worker within 30 seconds and is so bad it will destroy a robot making it all but impossible to work on.

Fukushima, although new in many areas was based on old technology due to lack of development in Nuclear technology, largely due to the irresponsible actions of the USSR funded CND movement making R&D in nuclear physics both unpopular and controversial which has set back development by at least 30 years!

Nuclear Engineer: Fukushima is “worst industrial cataclysm in history of world… As close to hell as I can imagine” — Melted fuel ‘disappeared’ — Contamination will go on for hundreds of thousands of years… “No one knows when it’ll end” — Gov’t perpetrating ongoing cover-up

Image: Nuclear engineer says Fukushima contamination will go on for thousands of years
Arnie Gundersen, former nuclear engineer, Mar 11, 2017 (emphasis added): The scientific impact of the triple meltdown at Fukushima Daiichi is an ongoing disaster that was never envisioned by the engineers who created and designed these atomic reactors and countries who built them… no country in the world with nuclear power reactors was prepared for the explosive radioactive contamination of Fukushima Daiichi. Over and over, people ask me about what happened inside the plants and what is still happening inside with robots fried by radiation, corium that can’t be found, and massive amounts of radioactivity migrating to sensitive estuaries, aquifers, contaminating all the ground water, and polluting the Pacific Ocean… No one has discovered where the nuclear cores have disappeared to.  The $400,000,000 “ice wall” continues to leak… Moreover, the cover-up continues, with the health effects from radiation being camouflaged as stress related illnesses… I decided to share the photographs I took last year in Japan… these photos cannot adequately convey the scientific and human impact of the worst industrial cataclysm in the history of the world[R]adioactive isotopes will be extreme hazards for 250,000 years, of course no one knows when it will end.

 

BBC Newsday interview with nuclear engineer Arnie Gundersen, Feb 28, 2017: “As they get in [the containment vessel at Fukushima Daiichi Unit 2], they’re finding that combination of hot steam — these are not just radioactive chemicals, but it’s a toxic mix of chemicals that are going to react with the steel. So there’s rust and hunks of nuclear fuel lying around, and steam, and it’s raining all the time because of the condensation. I think it’s about as close to hell as I could imagine.”

Arjun Makhijani, nuclear engineer, Feb 17, 2017: Yes, so the bottom of the reactor under the reactor there is a grating and then under the grating there’s the concrete floor, and what this robot discovered… the grating was deformed and broken. So, now it appears that some of the molten fuel may have gone through the grating… [H]igh radiation turns into heat, so the whole environment around the molten fuel is thermally very hot, and so whether it is going through the concrete, whether it is under the concrete, I don’t know that we have a good grip on that issue… Fukushima is possibly the longest running, continuous industrial disaster in history. It has not stopped because the risks are still there.

Radiation Spikes At Fukishima

Air Date: Week of February 17, 2017

Juan Carlos Lentijo of the International Atomic Energy Agency looks at tanks holding contaminated water and the Unit 4 and Unit 3 reactor buildings during a February 2015 tour of the tsunami-stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. (Photo: Susanna Loof / IAEA, Flickr CC BY-NC-ND 2.0)Almost six years after a tsunami caused a meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, the facility’s operator, Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco) faces overwhelming problems to clean up the site. Tepco now reports radiation in reactor 2 that would kill a worker in thirty seconds, and even destroys robots. Arjun Makhijani, the President of the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research and host Steve Curwood discuss the implications of this new report and the challenges of cleanup.

Transcript

CURWOOD: It’s Living on Earth, I’m Steve Curwood.

Six years after an earthquake and resulting tsunami devastated Fukushima, Japan and led to the melt down of three nuclear power reactors there on the coast, radiation levels have reached a staggering 530 sieverts an hour, many times higher than any previous reading. Tepco, the plant’s operator, claims that radiation is not leaking outside reactor number two, site of these readings, but concedes there’s a hole in the grating beneath the vessel that contains melted radioactive fuel.

Joining us now to explain what it all means is Arjun Makhijani, President of the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research. Welcome back to Living on Earth Arjun.

MAKHIJANI: Thank you, Steve. Glad to be back.

CURWOOD: So, this report from TEPCO seems serious, maybe even ominous. What what exactly is going on?

MAKHIJANI: Well, they are exploring the molten core of the reactor in reactor number two with robots, and the robot called Scorpion went farther into the bottom of the reactor in an area called “the pedestal” on which the reactor kind of sits and measured much higher levels of radiation than before. The highest level was 73 Sieverts per hour before and this time they measured a radiation level more than seven times higher. It doesn’t mean it’s going up. It just was in a new area of the molten core that had not been measured before.

CURWOOD: Still, it sounds to me like it’s problematic, that six years after this meltdown there’s such a high reading.

MAKHIJANI: It is a very high reading; they may encounter even higher readings. The difficulty with this high reading is that the prospect that workers can actually go there, even all suited up, becomes more and more remote. Robots are going to have to do all this work – That was mostly foreseen – but the radiation levels are so high that even robots cannot survive for very long. So now they’re going to have to go back to the drawing board and redesign robots that can survive longer or figure out how to do the work faster, and it’s going to be more costly and more complicated to decommission the site.

The lid of Unit 4’s Primary Containment Vessel lies close to the reactor building. The reactor was shut down for maintenance at the time of the accident. (Photo: Gill Tudor / IAEA, Flickr CC BY-SA 2.0)

CURWOOD: Remind us, Arjun, please, of the human impact of this kind of radiation. What’s toxic to humans?

MAKHIJANI: Right. So, if you get high levels of radiation in a short period of time, four Sieverts is a lethal dose for about half the people within two months. So, in 530 Sieverts per hour would give you a lethal dose in less than 30 seconds.

CURWOOD: Wow.

MAKHIJANI: So, it’s a very, very, very high level of radiation. That’s why people cannot go into the reactor and work there. That’s not the end of the bad news, but that’s quite a bit of it.

CURWOOD: OK. All right, there is more bad news. I’m sitting down. Tell me.

MAKHIJANI: Yes, so the bottom of the reactor under the reactor there is a grating and then under the grating there’s the concrete floor, and what this robot discovered — It was supposed to go around the grating and survey the whole area, but it couldn’t because a piece of the grating was deformed and broken. So, now it appears that some of the molten fuel may have gone through the grating and maybe onto the concrete floor. We don’t know because even robotic surveys are now difficult, and a high radiation turns into heat, so the whole environment around the molten fuel is thermally very hot, and so whether it is going through the concrete, whether it is under the concrete, I don’t know that we have a good grip on that issue.

CURWOOD: So, Arjun, what’s going on with the reactors one and three? There have been published reports that TEPCO, Tokyo Electric Power Company that has these reactors, hasn’t really taken a good look at those reactors. What do you know?

MAKHIJANI: Well, they have to develop the robots, and I think that developing them, by looking at reactor two, and they’re finding these surprises, radiation levels much higher than previously measured. It shouldn’t actually be unanticipated. The big surprise here was that a part of the grating was gone, and so that the molten fuel would possibly have gone through the grating. So, I think similar surprises will await reactors one and three because each meltdown will have a different geometry.

Storing contaminated water in tanks at the Fukushima Daiichi site presents an ongoing risk, says Makhijani. (Photo: Gill Tudor / IAEA, Flickr CC BY-SA 2.0)

CURWOOD: So, now what about the decay products here? We’re starting with the Uranium family, but we wind up with Cesium and Strontium – Strontium 90. What risk is there of Strontium 90 getting into groundwater there?

MAKHIJANI: Yeah, so the peculiar thing about a nuclear reaction is the initial fuel, Uranium, is not very radioactive. It’s radioactive but you can hold the uranium fuel pellets in your hand without getting a high dose of radiation. After it’s gone through the nuclear reaction – Fission, that’s what generates the energy – the fission products which result from splitting the Uranium atom are much more radioactive than Uranium, and Strontium 90 and Cesium 137 are two of the products that last for quite a long time, half-life 30 years, and are quite toxic. So, Strontium 90 is specially a problem when it comes in to contact with water. It’s mobilized by water. It behaves like calcium, so if it gets into like sea water and get into the fish, the bones of the fish, or human beings, of course, it gets into the bone marrow and bone surface, increases the risk of cancer, leukemia. So it’s a pretty nasty substance, and Strontium 90 has been contacted with water. You know, rainwater goes and contacts the molten fuel. Groundwater may be contacting the molten fuel. So, we have had Strontium 90 contamination and discharges into the ocean. They also collect the water. They’ve got about more than 1,000 tanks of contaminated water stored at the Fukushima site. By my rough estimate may be about 100 million gallons of contaminated water is being stored there.

CURWOOD: What happens if there’s an earthquake?

MAKHIJANI: That’s exactly right. So about a week into the accident, I sent a suggestion to the Japan Atomic Energy Commission that they should buy a supertanker, put the contaminated water into the supertanker, and send it off elsewhere for processing. They do have a site in the north of Japan which was supposed to be for plutonium separation, but it could be used to support the cleanup of Fukushima. But they rejected that proposal more than once and decided to build these tanks instead. They have a decontamination process on-site, and there are a very vast number of plastic bags on the site filled with contaminated soil. Nobody wants the stuff and nobody knows what’s going to happen with it.

CURWOOD: It’s six years after the original meltdown. How much of a disaster is Fukushima today?

MAKHIJANI: Well, Fukushima is possibly the longest running, continuous industrial disaster in history. It has not stopped because the risks are still there. This is going to take decades to decommission the site, and then what is going to happen with all this highly radioactive waste, ‘specially the molten fuel? Nobody knows.

CURWOOD: Arjun Makhijani is President of the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research. Thanks for taking time with us today, Arjun.

MAKHIJANI: So good to be back with you, Steve

Hi,

astonishing isn’t it that despite the fact that so many areas in Britain lack reliable broadband, with better than glacial speeds and large areas lack workable mobile phone signals – politicians witter on about ‘infrastructure’ and threaten rational members of society with squandering an estimated £42Billion on HS2, which is nothing more than a pointless vanity programme which is no more than an outright scam, using OUR money!

Not only is it pointless – anyone with 2 brain cells to rub together has learned enough history to realise that all it will do is siphon off people and jobs from the towns and cities where it stops and Britain will become yet more London centric!

This is a lesson most clearly shown when the French set up their railway network to decentralise Paris, and other cities, taking the public from the cities into the countryside and they found it merely attracted those already in the countryside to come into the cities, with disasterous consequences.

HS2 may well marginally help commuters to London (one or 2 trains in the morning & one or two home in the evenings!) but anyone else who wants to get there, 20 WHOLE minutes sooner, from Birmingham can at the moment catch a slightly earlier train!

They can’t run the trains on time anyway, just look at the farce that passes for a service in the South East.

Just what is the point of HS2 when a fraction of the money could improve the existing service and leave plenty over to fund fast direct optical cable to all parts of Britain, improved video conferencing and the decentralising of many offices, resulting in less travel and better lives for all – there might even be some money left over to fund the drugs that are currently bankrupting the NHS!

Clearly it is not a simple lack of funding that is causing problems for the NHS, but an inability to function within a budget! Many falsely apportion blame to health tourism and immigrants when in reality they account for a paultry 0.3% of the NHS budget!

Consider the unrealistic expectation whereby the NHS is no longer a National HEALTH Service but all too often a life style service used as a political football and whipping boy.

I guess such a solution is far too logical for a politician or a major corporate director!

None of this takes into consideration, the inevitable fall in requirement for travel once video conferencing is more widely used due to improved efficiency. In the slightly longer term robotics and automation will inevitably give rise to a fall in numbers of people who have any need to work or any meaningfull need to work physically thus ever more jobs will pass into history together with the need for work related travel.

Instead of politicians thinking in the short term as to how they can be re-elected asurely it is time for a more mature and responsible attitude where consideration is given to the needs of the future rather than meeting the needs as perceived in the past.

Cancel the HS2 vanity project and update communications to meet the modern world’s needs of today whilst thinking of the needs of the future by even considering managing the total closure of rail in Britain as it has not, nor will it ever, under any circumstances, be an efficient and cost effective concept!

It is time to think ahead.

Greg_L-W.

Abuse Inquiry Judge Urged To Investigate Dunblane Boarding School …

Hi,

Abuse inquiry judge urged to investigate
Dunblane boarding school

Anne Smith is chairwoman of the Scottish child abuse inquiry.
The judge at the helm of an historic child abuse review in Scotland is being urged to investigate a top private school with links to the royal family.
Glenn Harrison, a former housemaster at Dunblane’s Queen Victoria School (QVS), has raised fresh concern that pupils were sexually abused by a paedophile ring during the 1980s and 1990s. He first blew the whistle 26 years ago but has written to Lady Anne Smith, chairwoman of the Scottish child abuse inquiry, making a new case for its inclusion in her review.
The prestigious school, attended by children of Scottish servicemen and women, did not feature on a list published in January that detailed more than 60 establishments under investigation.
The omission has raised eyebrows in legal circles and among child abuse campaigners who believe that there is a prima facie case for fresh examination of Harrison’s claims.
The Sunday Times understands that discussions about the school’s inclusion arose shortly after ministers announced the inquiry in October 2015. It was argued that as the independent boarding school is funded by the Ministry of Defence (MoD), it might fall within the remit of a mirror inquiry running in England and Wales.
On Friday, a spokesman for the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse said its remit was to consider institutional failure to protect children from sexual abuse and exploitation in England and Wales. Although the inquiry can consider failures by English and Welsh institutions outside those two countries, it said there are “no current plans to investigate issues” relating to Queen Victoria School.
The admission has prompted fresh calls for Lady Smith to include the Dunblane school in her abuse inquiry, particularly in light of Harrison’s approach. Simon Collins, a lawyer representing the charity In Care Abuse Survivors, said: “My view is that if abuse is alleged to have taken place in Scotland, then it should be considered as part of the Scottish inquiry.”
One lawyer, who asked not to be named, said it was “disgraceful” that QVS was not among the institutions named in January, which included leading private schools such as Gordonstoun and Fettes. However, a spokeswoman for the inquiry said more establishments in Scotland could yet be investigated.
Queen Victoria School, which counts the Duke of Edinburgh as its patron, has been dogged by claims that pupils were abused by high-ranking government officials since Harrison raised concern in a letter to parents in 1991.
At the time, he was convinced that young boys were in danger and claimed that a group known as Friends of QVS would often take boys away for the weekend, with the pupils returning “distressed but flush with cash”.
It was later claimed that Thomas Hamilton, the man who carried out the Dunblane massacre in 1996, was a paedophile who had close ties to the school. Several investigations, by the police and the now-defunct Scottish Schools Inspectorate, failed to find evidence to support Harrison’s concerns.
A spokeswoman from the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry, said: “We are currently undertaking over 60 investigations into individual establishments. We will announce further investigations in due course. The fact that a particular establishment was not mentioned at the preliminary hearing does not mean that it will not be investigated. We would encourage anyone with relevant evidence to come forward and share their experience.”
The MoD and QVS declined to comment.

Hi,

the Government is making claims of ensuring everyone has high speed connection to broadband – a situation they are seemingly a million miles from achieving, whilst the public, myself included, clamour for workable broadband speeds and reliability in this modern age (which we do not have in this area!).

People can hardly complain when once people get decent connections, particvularly if they are stupid enough to plaster their private details all over the likes of Facebook, Instagram and the like, don’t be surprised if corporations, politicians, government and crooks use that data you have freely given.

We jhave here the latest version of invasion of privacy which is just as specious and fundamentally dishonest as all those petty nobodies who had their phones hacked and got huge compensation for being too idle or too stupid to change their passwords!

The internet is remarkably simple to control, but the will to do so is not there!

On line obscenity, abuse, pornography can be stopped with one simple control – but the industry and Government seem unwilling to do anything about it.

In the mean time don’t expect anything on the internet to be private – it just isn’t – and for as long as it isn’t don’t be surprised or complain if the information you pump out is used, whether to your advantage or against!

Leave.EU used ‘creepy’ Facebook profiling technology to win Brexit campaign — and now the data watchdog is investigating

Jake Kanter March 2017

PA

  • Leave.EU admits using “creepy” Facebook tech to scoop up data and target voters with anti-EU messages.
  • The data firm that helped Donald Trump take office, Cambridge Analytica, distances itself from the Leave.EU project.
  • Questions over whether Leave.EU broke rules on political donations and if Cambridge Analytica breached data protection laws.

LONDON — The communications director for Leave.EU, the Nigel Farage-backed Brexit campaign group, has admitted using “creepy” Facebook profiling technology to persuade Brits to vote to leave Europe. 

Leave.EU communications director Andy Wigmore told The Observer at the weekend that the group — which is bankrolled by UKIP’s biggest donor Aaron Banks — harvested personal data last year and targeted voters on Facebook with anti-EU messaging.

He claimed Leave.EU worked with Cambridge Analytica (CA), the data firm credited with helping Donald Trump win the US election, on an informal basis on the project. CA has denied it worked for the campaign, however.

Now Leave.EU is the subject of a complaint over whether it broke the rules on political donations, and Cambridge Analytica is being investigated by the government’s data protection agency over whether it breached privacy laws, sources tell Business Insider.

Facebook as a propaganda weapon

Wigmore told The Observer that Facebook was a powerful weapon in Leave.EU’s armoury. “Using artificial intelligence, as we did, tells you all sorts of things about that individual and how to convince them with what sort of advert,” he said.

“And you knew there would also be other people in their network who liked what they liked, so you could spread. And then you follow them. The computer never stops learning and it never stops monitoring.”

Thomson ReutersHe admitted that the technology’s accuracy is unsettling. Wigmore said: “It’s really creepy! It’s why I’m not on Facebook! I tried it on myself to see what information it had on me and I was like, ‘Oh my God!’ What’s scary is that my kids had put things on Instagram and it picked that up. It knew where my kids went to school.”

He told The Observer that CA was “happy to help” with its work on Brexit on a pro bono basis. This, he said, is because Farage is a “good friend” of Robert Mercer, the hedge fund billionaire who is reported to have invested in CA.

The firm has developed a proprietary technique known as “psychographics” to profile individuals and target them with messages, but in a statement to Business Insider, it said it played no part in Leave.EU’s Brexit campaign. “Cambridge Analytica did not carry out any kind of paid or unpaid work for Leave.EU,” a spokesman told us.

Business Insider contacted Leave.EU four times to ask why CA was disputing Wigmore’s version of events and request more information about the data firm’s actual involvement in the social media profiling. Leave.EU did not respond to our emails or phone calls.

Complaint to Electoral Commission and data protection probe

A complaint has been filed with the Electoral Commission over CA’s alleged work for Leave.EU, according to a source who has seen the complaint. Under election rules, political parties must declare donations of £7,500 or more, including services-in-kind.

“My guess is that we are now beginning to see a rather fuller picture of how the Leave vote and the Trump vote really came about,” the source told Business Insider. The source was a supporter of Britain remaining in the European Union but agreed only to talk anonymously in order to avoid any attendant negative publicity.
